Jesus. I think you are taking me/this way too seriously.


Maybe it's me and my poor wording.

LORD NO, did you really get that impression at all? I already signed up for that other one AND told you the mustache was offcenter.

I thought you were opening the communication for various ideas and thoughts.

Well...and "The 'Stache" is gone unless we move to that board or opt for one of the lesser web extensions like .org or .net. So it's a pretty moot point.

So, ideas and thoughts. Yes.

I was just failing to see the fault in a 'stache.

I'm not. Not really.

I'm just surprised to hear that it's too trendy for us or that it's too exclusive for the whole group. I mean...it just seem weird. Would you really stop posting here if we suddenly had a mustache at the top of the board?
Oh, no. I'm just saying why it's my least favorite.

Ordinarily...you know me...I'd just make whatever I want and say "play here or don't".

But we've already dwindled so much. I'm pandering.

Yeah, I do, I'm sure I already mentioned that cause I think someone said I was cheating on you.

No soccer themed games, themes vary. There's been a couple of Futurama games, a Lost one, Friends, Dragonball Z and a wrestling one(as well as other, made up themes).

I only called it soccer so as not to get confused with your football, you know the game where you throw and run with the ball to score points Razz

I'll need to see what happens, there's a bit of a transformation happening with it. Basically, when I started playing over there(was just after I started playing here), I started a planning thread over there. And I brought in a schedule(it was more just an order) and then someone suggested putting dates on it to get it more organized and now there's a big uproar about the games being too close together so there's a vote happening with various options and divided opinion.

There was also a big massive fallout that happened on Wednesday night. Basically someone posted on the thread that they'd received a PM from someone wanting to start their own planning thread and rival mine, at first I didn't realise it was a joke so there was a bit of investigating and someone claimed it, so I started asking questions and stuff. I then got PM'd be the original guy saying it was a joke and the guy who claimed it was just playing along with his prank. So I thought I'd get even and totally throw a hissy fit and I locked the thread and called him all sorts of names and then went to bed. I was just looking for him to feel bad for trolling me so I could turn around and say that I was taking the piss. He didn't come online though and when I woke up in the morning, no one had a clue what was going on and I just admitted to everything.

My point is that there's a big change going through our community and that I'm not exactly in the best light, although there's loads of people who think it was funny etc but some are claiming that I did it so that players who "beg" me to come back, like I'm really needed, but those people are idiots and are repeatedly claiming that I think I'm in charge when I really just change the schedule to whatever the general consensus of the people is. But yeah, we're going through a transition at the moment.

It's weird though, on here we pretty much play game after game but the hosts just sort of come up when they're needed(ie there isn't much of a queue) whereas over there there's a massive queue to host but the people want to space the games out more. confused We do play more than mafia games though.

edit: I apologize for that, it's turned into a massive rant.

It sounds like Forehead is a big dawg at this other forum. We need to insult him EVEN MORE now. To bring him back down to earth.

Also, the clamoring at your forum is because it's a new fun pastime. We had the same types of scheduling arguments when there were 50 people interested in playing the games at VA.

Also, I like the look of the other site, and Jon already paid for it, so we shouldn't be jerks.

He could have used that $20 for Vegas.

(... I have no idea how much he paid for the domain, or even what a price for a domain is. It's imaginary space on the internet; I don't know what Mark Cuban and the other Internet-saavy moguls are charging for that nonsense.)

Do you want to do more work on it, Jon? Learning things is hard, and the Jon I know doesn't like to do things.

Which would you rather waste, your money (stay here) or your time (go there)? I'll support either.

So where do you want us to post, jon? Here or there?

If there, can you email EVERYONE from here and let them know?

Or, I'll just wait out the transfer on EBB and you let me know when everything is settled? That sounds good.

I'm just trying to figure out which one you want to do! You bought the other place and you're talking about how difficult it is over there, so that makes me think you want to stay over here. But over here, you're still so hopeful!

Which do you waaaaaaaaaaant.

It shouldn't be alineating anyone. You're trying to do a nice thing. Two nice things. I'm just trying to figure out which nice thing you actually want to be doing.

The people who know web stuff way better than me are saying there are lots of benefits to moving over there.

The rest of you don't give a shit, so long as the cable isn't interrupted. I think the majority of you are as pleased as punch with this place and don't care to make yet another move.

Really...I want to make the best long-term decision for us all, but I wonder how long-term any of this really is.

I just want you all to have a place to go that makes you happy.

I feel like there should be a little tear dripping from your avatar monocle with that last statement.

Have you officially done a poll on it?

Set it to the tune of



See, I'm capable of learning.

ETA: Goddammit, apparently not.

ETA2: This is a better video anyway.

I'd have to let them explain. A lot of it has to do with the fact that if we stay here, we never really own our information. Forumotion does. Which seems silly. But it keeps us on a leash.

Yeah, I'm like the Fonzie of the Pie and Bovril mafia community. "Aaaaaaayyy" indeed. You guys have been insulting me? I thought it was just good fun Sad

I didn't take the mafia games over there, they were there when I got there. The earlier one I found was from April 2009. But there's only been 45 games in total, I've been involved in 19 since last April, so it's not new but it's not as frequent as us.(unless I couldn't find the links to some of them)

I like phpbb better than proboards so just dont go there.

I can't stay logged in at the EBB and it makes it difficult to want to return there.

I'm actually having the reverse problem here, but I think it's Chrome related. When I use IE and go to the EBB, I'm already logged in, np.

I've been using Chrome more and more so I began using it to come here and I have to log in every time I close the window.

Probably wouldn't have that issue with IE, but I'm trying to break the leash.

Any chance there are still people on the EBB with an interest in mafia that would join up to play or hang out during/in between games?

I haven't been spending a ton of time there lately. Just in the Comic thread a bit.

I think it comes down to being in control. #1 of the content and #2 of the platform.

If the site stays here*, paid or free, Jon will probably never be able to move it. He may never WANT to move it but if he does he's going to be SOL. If forumotion.com dies, switches format, get insanely expensive or just becomes a shitty partner the choice will be stay here and deal with it or move again and try to build something new.

As users, there may not be a lot of differences or benefits today but if it's a community you want to keep and/or build making the switch is a better long-term plan. And if it's going to be done it should be done soon.

Not sure that helps....Hope so.


*I'm ok with staying here, if that's the choice. Jon, sorry if it seems like I'm pressing you. This is just one of those things I know because of my experience.

Not at all. You are spending a lot of your own time and money on something you feel will carry us along. I appreciate that. I just didn't find the appeal in the name.

I'll go where my people go. Just spread the sea, or use your tom tom to get us across the desert.
