    News feed looks great and some nice articles too. Nothing to say, just to nice to see the community and site still thriving. BTW way the site is look pretty on point as well.

    This is disputable, at certain parts.

    1st, i wouldn't call community "thriving" right in here General Discussion Forum. Reason: people are few, and among them, some lack proper forum discussion skills. One would think they'd get it after spending a long time in this forum (which can readily be recognised by their forum stats), but quite ofen this is not the case.

    2nd, most of the mods i am aware of are not "killer" in as much they fail to achieve quality standards similar or higher than those generally maintained by vanilla Fallout games those mods are made for. Note, it is usual and OK to have mods that way, my point here is that i just wouldn't call such mods "killer" ones. Another note - YMMV and this is just a personal opinion, of course.

    3rd, i see double standards in this forum. My post which consisted of the following video without any commentary was deleted in this very topic, with the reason given "Try to at least comment please". I didn't know i had to comment. How would i, seeing such posts happening, even very recently, left and right and remaining non-deleted, i wonder. So for some people, apparently, it is OK to do so. But for others, including myself, it is not. Double standard, pure form of it.

    So yeah, this forum kicks ass. Sometimes not in a way one expects it to, though. Much like KICKING ASS happens in this here song:

    P.S. Here we go, same thing but with full commentary. One is glad to be of service. :salute:

    Sorry to ask you to post something of substance the very first post of the thread, but it seems you managed to find something to say. I watched the video for a bit and couldn't even see how it was relevant.

    Public service announcement for all internet users: No matter how hard you try, or how well you can type. You cannot in any way convey sarcasm, or flat jokes in such a way with text that it can be understood as it was originally intended without context.

    Therefore I suggest if a line of text requires context, simply state the context similar to the Elcor in Mass Effect. At least then those reading the senseless ravings of the mad can be understood to a reasonable degree. Simply stating "I'm joking" after the fact does not solve the problem of being a dick to others nor clarify the position of the original posted information, as joking in an undefined manner without the reader understanding it's point will simply be understood that the original poster in fact has no idea what the joke is. After all they wrote it, and that utterance is all anyone has to observe from their input.

    Which from there the assumption can be made that they are simply back peddling from their original position in an attempt to be more agreeable to reduce the amount of flak they are receiving as a result of their failure to convey context.

    In other words, lets all work together to become more effective at communicating in a reasonable fashion so that we're just smearing shit all over the walls like a bunch of monkeys.

    Did I fact good?

    Observation: typing in a way resembling Elcor talk will make messages "sound" monotonous and uninteresting.

    Unnecessary addendum: personally, i'd prefer to implement this idea using superior protocols of speech used by HK-47.

    Grim realization: while fine, this idea will not last, because meatbags lack proper circuitry to persist with it.

    Self-irony: shame, isn't it.
