TET: Good-bye and hello, as always.

Postby Dread Lady Nathicana » Sat Aug 17, 2013 5:54 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.

  • 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!

1 In the beginning The Great TET God created the TET thread
2 And the thread was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the forumites and the spammers. And the Spirit of the TET God moved upon the threads of the forum
3 And the TET God said, Let there be posts: and there was posts.
4 And TET God saw the posts; that it was good: and TET God divided the good posts from the spam.
5 And TET God called the good posts on-topic, and the spam he called the mods in to clean up. And the first post and the last were the first thread.
6 And TET God said, Let there be a decent conversations about kitties, music and general goings-on

And so in the last post of the previous TET, DesAnges was murdered alongside the topic.

Intredasting.
Kosovo is Morrowind. N'wah.
Impeach Dagoth Ur, legalise Daedra worship, the Empire is theft. Nerevarine 3E 427.

Pros: Dunmeri independence, abolition of the Empire, the Daedra, Morag Tong, House Redoran, Ashlander interests, abolitionism, Dissident Priests, canonisation of St. Jiub the Cliff Racer Slayer.
Cons: Imperials, the Empire, the False Tribunal, Dagoth Ur, House Hlaalu, Imperials, the Eight Divines, "Talos", "Nords", Imperial unionism, Imperials.

Post something with content or lose 'first'. Seriously people, you don't remember that when I'm on? I'm sadfaced now. Utterly bereft of joy.

Anyway, on the topic of red dwarf;

I hope they do a another new series. I liked the new one they did. Sort of felt like they'd brought the show back to its roots. Needs to be a bit more random like it used to, and I hope they can bring Holly back somehow too.

Not anymore. It was just for the novelty. :p

And now more greetspam? Perhaps they were right - there is no hope. Woe, woe, woe.

Hope you're adjusting ok Divair. Imagine that's a hard transition for anyone, that many miles away.

So far it's fine. I suspect if there is any shock, it won't happen until I'm here for a while and my brain realizes there is no turning back.
