    So, i thought i'd sneak out of OT to come make a plea on everyone there's behalf. Basically the forum has steadily over time been losing posters, until we get to now, where its pretty much just a couple of a-holes going over the motions, and a couple of really annoying alts trying to troll.

    So i figure all of you (well, some at least, i probably wouldnt like half of you) should come over to the dark side and post in OT...why i hear you ask?

    firstly because i said so and i'm awesome, secondly you can a) swear there...thats right no language filter b)you can insult other posters and the mods quite harshly there...although its best to avoid directly mentioning their actions per ROC you can call them names till your red in the face.


    So please everyone, come to OT and start threads on whatever subject springs to mind, preferably something that will cause long drawn out arguments, like religion, or saying that obama is doing a good job. Bringing up UO is always a good one...they hate that there!

    And remember, while the people there may be childish bullies...if you come en masse there won't be much they can do about it.


    linkovich



    *disclaimer the people there will be nasty, will call you names, and may make you run away like a small male child with a girls name like francis....you have been warned*​



    seriously though, the forum is in desperate need of some new posters/fresh meat

    *shrugs* desperate times call for desperate measures.


    just in case there's some confusion, this isnt a troll or a trick of some type, i really do want more people to come and liven up what was once a great forum

    Just to clarify...

    Dave means Off Topic: No Holds Barred

    and not: U-hall Off Topic.

    It's a fun place, but come in with your shields at full power and weapons charged. :p

    They're tame over there in OT:NHB compared to some other forums I frequent.

    I see a definable collation between this and a PK trying to entice tram players to come to felluca. Next thing the OP will say is that you get double post counts by posting in the OT forum. LMAO They just want new meat over there to harass and insult kind of the way a PK likes to kill defenseless tram players in felluca. They get a rush from it.

    While i agree that the other posters will jump on any newbies, thats really not what i'm trying to do - the others jumping on people is one of the problems, as people get bored of the same conversations with the same people they stop posting, in turn the current posters act like idiots and stop new people wanting to post there making the problem even worse.

    I'm hoping if enough people at least give it a try it'll dilute the assholeishness and we might actually get some discussions going


    and jeez, dramatise much? it's a message board, calling people names is hardly the same as taking someones hard earnt loot

    You wonder why people have stopped posting? Seriously?

    I frequented that forum when it opened for about a year. You are making light of what it really is. I will not go in to any more detail as I currently have 2 warnings and need them to decay :)

    Suffice is to say I saw more vitriol spewed there than I care to see in the rest of my lifetime. The people there are full of hate and most people (the normal ones) are a bit turned off by that.

    Its not scary, if you can get over the insults it can be quite the invigorating place. Make sure you type loose instead of lose though, lots of times, over and over. Oh and then instead of than.

    Emotive topics, lots of politics (almost invariably from same posters with the same usually opposing views), and some real life thrown in now and then.

    Once you get past the initiation flame-fest feeding-frenzy, and work out who is most deserving of the mouse-wheel option, it's really not so bad. **

    ** Since my posts are likely mouse-wheel fodder for most, there are unlikely to be any hurt feelings. :lol:

    From the Stratics (UO Stratics et al) RoC:

    S. Off Topic (OT) are not prohibited, but should be posted within reason. There are some topics that are not appropriate for the forums. All posts are subject to these rules. Excessive OT posts will be dealt with on a case by case basis.

    An invitation to post in another instance of Stratics seems to be "within reason".

    Not quite the ringing endorsement! I mean that's like saying "Please go through this pink gate where the rest of my guild is waiting to gank you. You'll love it!" :mf_prop:

    Interesting approach, though! ;)

    Your old report posts (tattle tail) still make me chuckle. I guess you didn't think that a report post submission would go to the moderator of the forum the post was made on? ROFL...la

    Why a game site has political discussions I will never know.

    just close the thing already.

    Don't need Off topics for a game site.
    just put a link to one of the many other sites that cater to that kind of talk.

    It's called lack of interest. It has nothing to do with bravery or lack thereof. :popcorn:
