    Lightbulb Collected thoughts and observations

    Over the years I've spent at the Org, I've collected a few thoughts and observations.

    • When you're the only active one holding down the fort, don't act like it, especially around the one who employs you.
    • Don't try to argue your case with your employer. It will not end well.
    • Don't say [insert overly-complex strategy game by Paradox Interactive] sucks.
    • Don't say Stardock sucks.
    • The forum's theme will eventually change again. Deal with it.
    • People will hate the forum's theme. When it changes, they will demand that it be changed back to the old theme. Go figure.
    • If you wish to keep your sanity, stay out of the Backroom.
    • Don't try to argue with someone when they say that Shogun: Total War is the best TW game evar. You'll be saving your brain cells a lot of damage.
    • The above applies to Morrowind in the Elder Scrolls series as well.
    • Don't try to argue with someone when they say that Rome: Total War is the worst TW game evar.
    • Always agree with Texan members. They have firearms and know how to use them.
    • Avoid the Entrance Hall like the plague.
    • The Gameroom is 99% Mafia, 1% originality.
    • Worksafe porn is in the Frontroom. If you are a history professor, your worksafe porn is in the Monastery.



    What are your thoughts and observations on the Org?

    Totally agree on this one.

    • Never argue that the .Org in its current state is better than it was a year ago.
      Things will get messy if you do.

    As this is a discussion topic about the Org, I'll move it to the Watchtower.
    Be intent on loyalty
    While others aspire to perform meritorious services
    Concentrate on purity of intent
    While those around you are beset by egoism

    Never post something that belongs in the Watchtower in the Frontroom.
    Hammer, anvil, forge and fire, chase away The Hoofed Liar. Roof and doorway, block and beam, chase The Trickster from our dreams.
    Vigilance is our shield, that protects us from our squalid past. Knowledge is our weapon, with which we carve a path to an enlightened future.

    oh snap
    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    • Washington is better than every other State in the Union, and every country in Europe except for Liechtenstein and the Vatican.

    Been to:

    Swords Made of Letters - 1938. The war is looming in France - and Alexandre Reythier does not have much time left to protect his country. A novel set before the war.

    A Painted Shield of Honour - 1313. Templar Knights in France are in grave danger. Can they be saved?

    • Non Washingtonians are an inferior race, all comments by them are to be disregarded. Especially if they are from Texas.

    You mean Strike would want to look like an elitist, the existance of which we all declined in another recent thread?
