TET: Eternity in an Hour (And 500 pgs in a Week)

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:

  • Three strikes, you're out - end of. 1 day ban for first infraction in any chat thread. 3 day for the next. 7 day for the next. Deletion on the 4th. Why? Because these kinds of threads tend to fly heavy and fast, and it is all too easy to let yourself get caught up in the spirit of things, step out of line, and it tends to snowball like mad. We can’t have that. Players with already colorful histories are encouraged to tread even more carefully, as stepping out of line here will only add to that, and prior warnings can and will be taken into account when considering the three strikes notation above.

  • 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 picspam, 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.

  • No, this does not mean everyone can run out and create their own chat threads. There is one for F7, NSG, and Gameplay, and for now, that's all that will be running. 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. All the same - PLEASE DO NOT SPAM. Hope you can enjoy, folks!

I have never posted in TET before, and I am about to get a "first" in a new TET.
I have just discovered that I am dangerously addicted to dorito tacos. They're just so delicious...

*Waits for LG to tackle me*

Edit: FIRST!

Now would be a good time to thank Nathi for all the work she's done so far.

After all, she's the reason TET exist.
You could call her its mother...I can imagine giving birth to this one must have been doozy.

Hopefully it'll leave its rebellious phase one day.

...

Now where's my allowance?

Well, this is the second time I've posted on the first page of TET.
Also, listening to Finnish pagan metal.

You're looking at her. Figuratively. Not that anyone else isn't able to do whatever needs doing, mind. Sorry to disappoint.

You might just need a partner in moderation considering the scale of what you're trying to moderate. :blink:

So on shutting TET down for the summer, is there anything other than speculation on your part here?

So you admit it, eh, Arcad? :twisted:

We can try again, now that I had to start over on a new Wii console. :p

Today I walked out of class and the first thing I saw was a giant foam mushroom. It was a weird day.

I just realized all those jokes about me being a cow and hooves and stuff are gonna look pretty stupid when I change my flag.

Eternity lasts an hour?

Does this means a particularly long sleep makes me Cthulhu?

It's nice to see someone who is new to TET but not completely new to NS. Hello~

I've only had one Doritos taco, but I crave more.

500 hundred pages a week?

Back in my day, it only took a weekend to burn 500 pages...

Anyway, I do pray for the children in Oklahoma who are alive still, and the families who have lost loved ones. :(

Good lord, the Dread Lady actually gives birth to these things!? :o. No wonder she's called the "Dread Lady" . . .

First new thread I've seen in in a while.
Night guize.


I had something longer and far wittier in mind but my brain doesn't want to cooperate tonight. Fuck that guy.
