I'll be doing it for my college's "team" this semester for two meets... All those big-name Southern California Colleges...Berkeley, UCLA, UC Irvine, USC, Davis, San Jose State...and my COMMUNITY College (and just to make sure I make EXTRA friends...we get to be everyone's favorite Orwellian-inspired state, North Korea! ;) So...anyone do this? Fun stories, ideas, tips...share them, I plan to take this dictators--er, People's Republic to the top!) ;)
I don't know, but I've always wondered... What would happen if a state told a federal judge who shot down a law to go get bent and enforced it anyhow? I mean, are the feds going to march on Alabama if they enforce their new illegal immigration law? What could they do besides withhold money?
I've watched a couple of games now and would like to know more about it. It seems like a very interesting mix of football (soccer), basketball, and American football; but WAY better than football (soccer) and basketball.
Basically, I'd like to rewrite history...and I need help. If this thread doesn't go to the trolls, I'll explain but knowing this site... Anyways, I'd just like to create a fiction novel based off of what history maybe SHOULD have been...and of course how I think it WILL be...
Looks like the number of forum cheating accusations has greatly increased. Just to let all of you noobs out there know, the rules have much to say, why don't you read them. If you have a cheating accusation, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and complain to the mods. This forum is for trolling and other pointless conversations, not to hear you all bitching. Thank you.
I'm not sure what limits there are on words per post or anything, but below you will find my short story entitled: Flame's Rest. I'll break it up into 2 posts, as the finished product is 3 1/2 pages in word double spaced. Please comment with any advice, critiques or even shameless bumps. :)
Hi guys, I added the donor icons but there were 30 or so people who donated with a different e-mail address than they're using here. If you should have a donor icon but don't e-mail me at email@example.com telling me which e-mail address you donated with.
Thanks again to all who donated, we've just got the 2 year lease for the dedicated host, and everything seems to be going well :-)
I saw that donations were still accepted right after I posted. I sadly don't have a job right now, and my wife already puts up with me spending more time here than I should. So maybe I shouldn't donate her money to a game she despises... Maybe... Expect some symbol next to my name soon!
Yours was one of the emails that got moved up when the thresholds were lowered spyman, but because of the webdip / paypal email mismatch I must have missed you. I need to find a better system to track donation sources :-/ this is going to be hard to maintain
In general we wont disclose the thresholds though, because its not paying for the marker the marker is just to indicate you donated (e.g. marker levels may change again, and anyone who felt they had paid for that marker would be annoyed)
Thanks Kestas. Yes I can see this could prove to a bit of a headache. But on the long term it could prove an effective way of maintaining revenues. But you need to think of way that makes it less of a chore. I forget which email I use for paypal. It was originally hotmail but I thought I had changed it to gmail - the same as my webdip account.
He'd have to constantly update those every month, diplo554. And considering kestas doesn't run the GR calcs, that might be a bit much to ask him to do. But I like the idea. Heck, they could come in top 10 - Platinum, top 50 - Gold, top 100 - Silver, and top 250 - Copper.
Horton the V, Green Eggs and Hamlet--SEUSSPEARE! (Mix-And-Match Writing Thread!)
So, if you haven't seen it...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3w2MTXBebg
I found it funny (of course) and so did my friends, and we got to wondering...what WOULD happen if the two masters merged? SO--Shakespeare and Dr. Seuss...what would THAT look like? ;) (Feel free to mix other authors, too!) :D
Sweeping generalization about a contentious issue.
Broad statement of subjective opinions masquerading as objective fact. Implication that those that disagree are not only in the wrong, but are subhuman. Stop "thinking", humanzees! Listen only to me! My thoughts are kind of a big deal.
