  1. I've never been a fan of MMORPGs, but this really interests me. Star Wars is a huge passion of mine, and I'm eager to learn more about this era in the Star Wars Universe. Non-Jedi FTW. I'm hoping that the classes allow a great deal of customization in terms of races and abilities. -Shy

[quote name='James' date='13 July 2010 - 05:14 PM' timestamp='1279066482' post='697255'] [font="Palatino Linotype"]Regarding any future Almagest RPGs, Shy, are you intending to just start one or will we do what we did here and create a Backstage topic first?[/font] [/quote] I'll likely be starting a new thread Backstage before I move onto a new Almagest RPG. In the meantime I'm thinking about a couple of different RPGS to do next. I'd like to create a clean break from this story to the next one, so I'm looking to do something 'ne
  3. Suggestions: [list][*]Why is there no mechanism to remove excess ice from a glass? I have been a bartender for several years, and my natural instinct is to shake the extra ice out of the glass. If you could somehow make that a feature I would love it, ecause I find myself overdoing the ice just barely and it drives me insane. [*]Why can't I salt or sugar the rims of glasses?! WHY!? [*]I need to be able to use a blender. It's driving me insane.[/list] -Shy [font=palatino linotype][b]Edit: I thought it would be a good idea to create a suggestions topic that is sepa

    I try to befriend you on Faceplace and you ignore me. I'm crying now, Darren. Thanks a lot.

  5. Posted! Brief, but it pushes things along in a big way. It looks like things are starting to heat up as we're reaching the end of our crawl. I'll let James handle the rest of the mine stuff. As for me, I'm going to address what's going on with the Czenovians and Anovans..... Also: Thanks for all of the formatting help, James. I know it as kind of driving me insane for a while there. -Shy
  6. [blockquote] Victoria was shaken by the events of the day, and they still raced through her mind as they drove to the Villette Mines. Even through the events of the Czenovian Revolution she had been supportive of her grandfather, despite the terrible news that had come to light regarding his business practices and unethical scientific experiments. She was one of the few who had done so, and now after seeing him attack Gustave she had no idea what to think. If I only could speak with Leonhart, Victoria Ann thought, Perhaps I could convince him to stop whatever he was planning. â??Iâ??m sor
  7. [quote name='James' date='29 June 2010 - 06:03 PM' timestamp='1277859822' post='696169'] [font="Palatino Linotype"]I've updated the first post in this topic to try to fix up the issues that occurred when the software changed. You guys will notice that your old posts don't look quite like they used to - that's just because some of the formatting for the site has changed now. I won't be going back to edit all of my old posts, so they will just have to stay that way. But any new posts I make will be formatted correctly. I did want to t

    Toy Story 3

    I really loved this film. It had been so long since I saw the first two that I'm not sure how they compare, but this was easily the most powerful and entertaining film I've seen in ages. I'm really eager to see it again. Spoiling anything about it would be a crime, so I'd rather not go into any specifics. See the dang movie already! -Shy
  11. [list][*]Perhaps there should be a forum for 'Anime News' and and a forum for 'General Anime Discussion.' If there were some way to include news stories from theOtaku's main page that would be fantastic, but simply reposting those stories on our site would probably generate discussion from members who don't visit theO on a regular basis. You could also discuss upcoming anime that hasn't been released yet, and convention information (and meet-ups.) General Discussion would be for... general discussion. Do I have to spell it out to you? [*]I say that we don't b
  12. [quote name='GreatDeitylink' date='16 June 2010 - 03:00 AM' timestamp='1276682427' post='695383'] Tonight, i was feeling rather nostalgic. I just graduated high school and was thinking back to earlier days when I remembered the fact that for about 3 years of my life I loved anime. I remembered theotaku.com so popped on there, and then saw the link for otakuboards. I still remembered my log in and lo and behold it worked! I joined in '03 back when I was 12 years old and in the 6th grade. I remember I was really worried about what people would think of

  15. [quote name='Desbreko' date='05 June 2010 - 05:28 PM' timestamp='1275784132' post='694687'] [color=#4B0082]We should totally go back to 50x50 avatars. [/color] [/quote] I'm game for that. Can you go by JCGoudy(?) again? -Shy
  16. I like the rectangular avatars. I feel like they're a pleasant throwback to a simpler time (version.) I don't see why both can't co-exist in harmony, but I do suspect if you give people the option of using a full 150x150 they are going to make a point of using it. -Shy
  17. Shinmaru bugs me in this new version. Is there a patch for that? -Shy
  18. This really emphasizes how much I disliked Zelda 2, but if it gets me a FPS DuckTales I'm in. -Shy

    Great responses everyone, I'm looking forward to seeing what else people come up with. I've seen some of the answers from our mystery panel so far and they are hilarious. -Shy
  20. She'll be missed, for sure. I'm sad to hear about her passing, but the good news is that The Golden Girls is still hilarious, even today. - Shy
  21. [quote name='eleanor' date='02 June 2010 - 06:39 AM' timestamp='1275485971' post='694268'] Is it just my mac or like half of the users' fonts on OB now so tiny you can't read them without zooming in three time or squinting?? [/quote] Yeah, I've been using size 1 font on OB for like 8 years, but I think I'm going to have to go up a size or two for this new version. -Shy
