TET: I Bought Some Batteries But They Weren't Included

Postby Farnhamia » Mon Dec 23, 2013 10:39 pm

A quick re-posting of the Rules of Engagement so we're all on track:

There have been multiple requests for a chat thread in various forums. The fact that we have traditionally come down rather hard on them has been in place for ages, and for a number of different reasons. After discussing various points, and the fact that it seems to be something the players would really like to have, we’re going to try it out and see how it goes. Please bear in mind the following:

  • There are no new rules for these threads. If you have a question on the rules, I have links in my sig to handy threads to refresh your memory. Things like ‘do not spam, do not flame, do not troll, do not bait your fellow posters’ are all very good things to keep in mind.

  • Keep it family friendly as much as possible. In other words, however much you want to hug and snuggle and flirt, do not get graphic with it. This has also been a problem in other chat threads, and some have been shut down for it. Keep it clean, or take it elsewhere. Does this mean sensitive topics cannot be discussed? No – but have care, as with any forum here on NS, with how you handle it.

  • These threads are not a blog, or a stage for you to constantly play out your personal dramas – do not treat them like one. Which is not to say folks can’t ask how one another is doing, offer a shoulder now and then, or give some encouragement. Life happens – and it’s nice to have folks you can talk to about it. Just keep in mind that some things are more appropriate to continue discussing in other places.

  • Each chat thread will be locked, and linked to after reaching around 500 pages. Please do not try to race and fill up those 500 pages. These are not designed for competition in mind, just discussion between players on whatever it is that’s on their minds at the time (so long as it is within the site rules.) Please, don’t do it.

  • This extra sentence was added during reincarnation eighty-six by Blaat and he wonders when another mod will notice it.
  • A mod did notice after a while, but decided what the heck, two can play this game. And as of 90, three have.
  • No, this does not mean everyone can run out and create their own chat threads. Please do not go out and make your own. We still have to moderate things, and that's one of the reasons that chat threads are difficult - they move fast. Too many, and we'll drown. I hate drowning.

  • Title for the thread: If you’ve got some ideas or preferences, let me know – I’ll edit it in to better suit the locals.

So there you go – a thread you can go to and not get yelled at for chatting, or going off topic. Hope you can enjoy, folks!

I have a confession to make as well. My first time on NSG was in 2009, when I was a lot younger and emotional. I was a young kid who was going through some difficult events in my life, and because of my terrible and embarrassing behavior on the site, I was eventually made DOS. If the moderators want to do something about this, then they can go ahead, but I feel as if I'm a completely different person. I just want to let them know.

My blog
I'm an atheist. When I defend theological arguments for fun, don't make cliche New Atheist remarks about theistic biases or trying to cover up gaps to save my "belief". You'll just look stupid.

Hello. You all may know me as Seito or Taoju. That I am a stuck up, pretentious fellow. But I must shed that mask.

Masks.

I hate them. I lie to myself every night because of them. I cry because of them. I feel pain because of them. I create them all in a sad and sorry effort to make myself presentable to the public eye. I wish to stop this. I don't know when I started doing this, and see no importance in finding the cause of this. But here, on this wonderful website called Nation States, I made a mask.

This mask was named none other than Maudlnya.

I appologize to all who I have lied to on this site. I have lied about every single detail of my life through that mask. I even lied to my love. Coffee Cakes.

I have lied to you all. Cheated you all. And I know no amount of apologies can make up for what I have done. Especially to you, Ben. It hurts me to lie. It hurts me to tell the truth for once. I am sorry... Sorry for all these lies.

I wish to change.

I wish to be more honest to all of you whom I adore.

I vow not to make masks and hide under them in cowardice.

I vow to change myself.

I'm sorry. But I give my buggest apologies to my love.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I will change. I will be myself from now on. No lies. Just good ole me.


... Sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you.


My brain... I think I just felt it explode. :unsure:
I came *this* close too many times to count to asking on that...
I'm just like... confused as fuck right now. :unsure:
