#6657 The Rules for GD

Posted by Golden Helmet on 27 November 2012 - 07:59 PM

The Rules: Follow Them or Die

#1: Common Decency is the basic law of the land. This means no excessive flaming, carrying on petty vendettas, cross-forum/website drama, trolling, or any other childish behavior Exactly what constitutes a violation will be judged on a case-by-case basis, but if "Common Decency" is a tough concept for you to grasp, you aren't welcome here.

#2: "Official" threads can only be created by moderators / admins, unless prior permission is granted. Any unauthorized "Official" threads will be locked and/or deleted.

#3: No homework threads / posts. We're not going to do your research for you.

#4: Do not necro dead threads. A thread is considered dead when it has not had a reply for more than 14 days. The exception to this rule is if you're posting an update to the original post.

#5: If something is NSFW, CLEARLY MARK IT AS SUCH. There is no such thing as too much warning. If something is excessively NSFW, ask a mod before posting.

#6: Threads with the "DEBATE" tag will be held to stricter standards of conduct than normal threads. If you can't debate like a grownup, take your ball and go home. (Hell Fury will be adding the specific rules shortly)

#7: The Moderators Are Not Your Personal Army. Threatening to report someone / involve the mods in some way will bring our wrath upon you. We are spiteful beings. If someone is breaking the rules, just use the report button; the report system is VASTLY improved over the old forums.

#8: Game / list threads are allowed now; however, games that revolve around post counts / who posts next / last / etc are forbidden. "The last person to post wins!", "The person below me is ___", etc are examples of bad games.

#9: Rape jokes can act as a trauma trigger for individuals sensitive to the matter. Rape jokes are allowed but must be placed within spoiler tags and a warning must be given because a user cannot know if spoiler tags are blocking a rape joke or a spoiler without a content warning. Below is an example of correct usage of the spoiler tag for a rape joke (minus the rape joke). [rule added by Hell Fury]

Warning: Rape joke ahead.


The above spoiler tags can be created using the following code:

Warning: Rape joke ahead.

#77367 The Ban Notification Thread, or "What happened to that guy?"

Posted by Golden Helmet on 31 October 2013 - 02:58 AM

Older members will remember "The Noose." This is the same basic concept, but with less meanness.


For you new guys, the idea here is simple. Whenever a member gets banned, there will be a post made here with the members name, a link to the offending post, and when they will be unbanned. When that persons ban expires, the post in here gets deleted.


This way, whenever someone gets sent away, you guys can just check here instead of wondering why X person was banned.


Just some general disclaimers:


 - Unlike the original Noose, the idea here is not to add one more layer to a persons punishment. This is not a "Wall of Shame." This thread is only here for informational purposes. Once your ban has expired, the post about your ban will be deleted.


 - Permanent bans will be displayed here for a bit longer, but they too will go away after a while.


 - If you notice that a persons account shows as banned, but the duration of the ban has passed, please let us know. The forum software is supposed to unban people automatically, but it acts funny sometimes and doesn't do it, so we don't always notice.


 - As always, if you feel you have been banned unjustly, you're welcome to email the mod who banned you and make your case. Our emails are in the stickied Rules thread.




If you have any questions or complaints, feel free to send me a PM.

#318 NSFW The Official Funny Pics / Animated Gifs Thread

Posted by Golden Helmet on 08 November 2012 - 02:49 PM

Basic rules (other mods will surely be adding more):

- Nothing involving forum members (you goddamn creepers)
- Don't double-post.
- Keep things relatively PG-13. I know this thread is NSFW, but people still view it at work anyways.
- Every post must contain a funny / cool image. Text-only replies and failed hotlinks will be deleted and your family will be ashamed of you.

I'd kick it off, but I'm lazy so I'll leave this one to you guys :P

So not sure if this goes here, but here goes.

So instead of having OVER 9000 threads for sales, how about just toss em here? Obviously big sales, Steam Christmas/Summer/Autumn can/should get their own, but random finds can go here.

Well since more than myself have aspergers and others have crazy conditions i figured we should have a thread :)

We can use this hangout/thread/dungeon/monkey house to discuss things and not only that but to teach others about our condition and most of all to support each other.

Shall we begin?

#30501 Whiskey/Bourbon/Scotch

Posted by Asperoth on 01 March 2013 - 04:55 AM

Because whiskey is delicious, that's why.

(And PixelOrange never got around to making this thread.)

More seriously, this thread is for the discussion of things pertaining to whiskey and the drinking or enjoying thereof.

EDIT: For clarification of discussion, I'm copying this from another thread:

I'm a strong advocate for aerating spirits. I know the process is only done for wines usually, but a spirit aerator (Vinturi makes one that measures shots for you, too) makes spirits so much better; removes a lot of the "bite" and bitter flavors and makes them far more palatable.

Angel's Envy bourbon after aeration is like drinking a cloud. Chopin vodka is also smooth as silk.

#17111 What Are You Reading?

Posted by Kris on 12 January 2013 - 10:04 AM

It occured to me no one had revived this thread since the new forums were whisked in to existence so I thought I would rectify this grave mistake. Of course I could have missed it and and such please delete and ignore this thread.

So since getting my phone I have used it nonstop in reading books to alleviate boredom at work. So let me give you a rundown of what I've read since.

Storm Front - the first of the Harry Dresden books.

The Iron Druid chronicles by Kevin Hearne

World War Z by Max Brooks

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

And then I tried to read Les Miserables but gave up after 50 pages, the language is nothing I haven't encountered before but I was sick of finding nothing that amounted to a story by that point.

So now I'm reading The Great Gatsby instead.

Ya'll know the song an' dance 'round these parts.

I may as well kick off Whinefest 2012: Had to call in sick for work. Besides the lost money, I hate leaving my coworker with extra work, but better than getting him (and customers) sick I suppose. If I didn't have to work with food, I probably wouldn't care as much, but since I do...

Fucking colds. As if going to the DMV isn't bad enough, now it had to infect me with its sickness.

#111 NSFW Pretty Ladies In Here NSFW

Posted by Golden Helmet on 08 November 2012 - 06:25 AM

It had to be done, and nobody said I couldn't, soooooo.... <.<

Anyways, same rules as before:

- No pictures of forum members. That's just creepy.

- Persons in the pictures must be at least 18 year old. I'm on enough watchlists.

- This thread is for professional pictures of professional models / actresses / otherwise famous / etc., not for creepershots and shots of that cute girl in your class.

- Every post must contain at least one picture. Please also try and include the name of the person in the picture. Posts that are just text or failed hotlinks will be deleted.

- No nudity. Butts are ok, but genitalia and nipples are a no-no. Try and keep this a tad below an R rating.

So, let's get this started, shall we?

#85466 What kind of love life do you lead?

Posted by PixelOrange on 11 December 2013 - 04:39 AM

On the old forums I created a debate thread that asked about alternative lovestyles. At the time the overwhelming response was that most people were still pro-monogamy on this forum. After posting in the happy/sad thread, I got a few responses regarding my new potential relationship and it seems that there have been a lot of new faces and a lot of alternate relationship styles being added to our little community.

So, if you're willing to share, here are a few starter questions. Feel free to share or withhold any information. I'm just curious where everyone stands and how that's working for you.

1. What kind of relationship are you currently in (if any)?

2. What kind of relationship would you like to be in (if any)?

3. What is your sexual preference?

4. Anything else you'd like to throw out there?

Also, those of you are are transgendered, crossdressers, or otherwise don't adhere to the traditional male/female roles, I'd love to hear about your struggles or transformations or what have you. I know there were at least two that fit this section in the past, although I'm not sure both of them post anymore.

I'd also like to hear what everyone prefers to be called. Some people prefer the cis-male or trans-male or zir or hir or whatever other variation.

Obviously, I'll go first.

1. I am married with two children. I am polyamorous and currently exploring the idea of adding a girlfriend to my life. My wife and I are somewhat into BDSM, her more than I. This isn't about her so I'll just explain about myself. I most closely match the term "Switch". That means that I can be dominant or submissive. I prefer dom to sub with 99% of the people I know but I would sub for a few select people if the opportunity presented itself. I have very little desire to feel pain, though. My submissiveness revolves around denial and frustration. Mental torture. Every once in a while I'll tolerate some pain but for the most part I prefer to be the one giving pain than taking it.

2. I would like to be in an N or tribe. An N is exactly what it looks like. Each point is a person. My wife and I would be the inside points (called hinges) and we'd each have a significant other (the outside points). This works much better than a V (which is what I'm currently exploring) because it means that my wife would also have someone to be with. Anything above an N is typically referred to as a tribe. A poly tribe typically lives together which means bills are split, money is a lot more relaxed, and you can focus on the joys of life instead of sweating about bills all the time.

3. Some people really don't like labeling themselves. I don't care. I'm currently heteroflexible or bicurious. There are men I would gladly be with, but for the most part I prefer women. In regards to the poly relationship, I would do better with a male in a triad (a triangle relationship or a closed V) but overall it doesn't matter to me.

I'm a male and have no desire to ever be a female or dress like one, although I do make a pretty badass Frank N Furter.

I'm also open to questions, so if you are curious about anything let me know.

Posted by PixelOrange on 12 May 2014 - 03:54 PM

Lots of people have been asking questions about builds or problems they're having in my build a computer thread. Rather than keep that going (because not everyone will see the questions there), I'm going to open this thread. It's an official thread so after a couple of days I will sticky it. I'm leaving it unstuck for now so people see it.

Ask anything you want from build advice to troubleshooting. This is not the thread for new discoveries or talking about random networking/programming theory, though. If it's "which is better" or "I'm having X problem" it's okay. Otherwise make your own thread.

#60386 The Official 'When are storylines returning to CAD' Thread

Posted by Tim on 23 July 2013 - 06:26 AM

I promised to make a thread to update you on this, and frankly some sort of sticky of this nature is overdue. Naturally there are people curious about this, so I want the information easy to find.

Are Ethan and Lucas and the gang returning to the comic?

Yes, that is absolutely still the plan. They will be coming back.

When will that happen?

I had intended for the new stories to begin in the spring, but obviously this didn't happen. I currently do not have a solid ETA. As soon as I do, I will announce it.

What are the reasons for the delay?

When I ended the Ethan storyline last fall, I had a plan for bringing them back. I expected to take a few months to focus on one-shots and begin writing the scripts for the new stories. However as they say, no plan survives contact, and 2013 did not end up going how I thought it would.

There is no one specific cause for the delay, but rather a collection of different things have put me behind schedule. In January, as many of you may have read via the front page, we almost lost our dog Simon due to a collapsing trachea. And then a few months later, on my birthday no less, he did in fact pass away. It leveled my wife and I. We knew we were going to lose him at some point due to his disease, but nothing was ever going to prepare us for it to actually happen.

After the surgery in January, I was spending a lot of my time looking after him and, really, just making the most of my time with him. I knew after the close call that we were on borrowed time. Unfortunately I was right. After he passed away, there were a few weeks where it was all I could do just to sit down and write the weekly comics, never mind work on anything else.

And then, almost immediately after losing Simon, my wife and I found out that we were expecting our first child. We were at both ends of the emotional spectrum for a while, incredibly excited about starting our family, but still devastated over having lost our friend.

So then, with my wife in her first trimester and everything that goes with it (fatigue, nausea, weird appetite, etc), my attention was focused on trying to help her out in any way I could. The bottom line is, some of the time I would have used to write, I used to focus on family stuff instead. So I didn't get as far along with the scripts as I expected to be by certain dates.

However, that's not to say that personal matters are the only reason for the delays, or that no progress has been made on the reboot in the interim. Quite the opposite, in fact. I have the first script finished, and an outline for the second and third "issue".

In the process though, some questions on the matter of format and sustainability arose that I needed an answer to. And so it seemed prudent to do a "trial run" to test out some of the answers I came up with. I wanted to get feedback on the format I was planning before I made any sort of commitments to it with the Ethan and Lucas reboot.

So I put the reboot on pause and set about writing a story featuring the Players, from an in-character perspective as their tabletop RPG counterparts. A fantasy story. I decided that this would not only let readers get to the know the Players on a more personal level, but it would allow me to test the waters with this storytelling format I'm hoping to use for the Ethan and Lucas reboot. Get feedback on it, and tweak and improve it before committing to it.

And that's where I currently stand. I'm putting the finishing touches on a Players story arc which I hope to launch in early August. After I see how that does, I will resume work on the reboot. My goal to finish and release two issues of the new Ethan and Lucas stories between now and the end of the year.
