Jul 3, 2008Hey, on this note, is it possible to lock a thread at the same time that the poll verdict is reached (I.E. when timed polls are finished their preset time and stop receiving votes)? This would keep some poll threads that have been dead for a while from getting bumped back up.Posted in: Site Feedback
Jun 26, 2008Before even another moment had passed, the creature was upon them. Its wicked sword arched through the semi-darkness and slammed into an unanticipating Darrian, his reflexes unable to account for the weight of his heavy weapon of choice.Posted in: Roleplaying
Even as the demon's sword impaled his chest and sent him hurtling back in to a rotting, ancient pillar, the vile creature grinned insidiously.
Darrian struggled to his feet and fixed his hands upon the handle of his massive weapon, "In the name of Torm I cast this demon back to the Nine Hells!"
As his hammer fell throw the air, a distant enchantment echoed throw the shadows: "Praeses, Alia, Fero!"
Darrian's hammer stopped as if it had crashed into wall and then become stuck in it. His eyes contorted in confusion and surprise, "What new devilry has this creature summoned?"
A man slid out of the shadows to his right, robed in brown, his thumb and middle finger fixed on his temples, his right hand extended toward the motionless hammerhead. His hands then fell, his concentration broken, and he looked hard at Darrian, "The demon has said that your anger feeds him- do not raise your weapon upon him just yet-"
Darrian nudged him away, "Who are you- no, you do not concern me. Go about your business, there is a demon to be slayed and a wizard will not step in my way!"
He slung his hammer once again throw the air and in to the robed demon. He was tossed aside like a rag doll in a hurricane, tattered, blackened robes and bits of shadow collapsing and hurtling to the ground.
"See? There is no beast that can withstand my hammer!" laughed Darrian haughtily.
As he spoke the demon raised itself from the dusty floor, growing taller and larger than before, a thicker darkness and twang of terror upon him this time. His sword seemed somehow more solid and flickered with a wicked black lightning. His eyes grew brighter still, and he laughed.

They aren't all bad. There were a few good ones, and everyone does have a right to discuss the possibilites.
Jun 24, 2008Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)Quote from "Daniel89" »You misiunderstood, you post was poking fun at people who only come on the forums during a big event, my post was merely mocking why would anyone want to randomely join a site when theres no event near. Unless i misunderstood yours, in which case i apologize.
Oh, okay. I guess it just depends on your point of view, then. For instance, I'm really sick of people with 3 posts coming in and when I say, "There's always a possibility that it won't be Diablo III- like MD said, it could also be WC IV or just more hype for WotLK," saying to me, "Evry1 who thinkz is WC4 F U!!one11!"
The majority of people that have this pattern of joining, posting once or twice, and then never posting again once the event(s) is(are) over 1) have no information to back up their argument, 2) are hopeless fan bois that ignorantly believe things without proper review of the facts, 3) flame for no reason, 4) don't thoroughly read through posts and then flame the person, 5) spam incessently, 6) all post "I've been watching this forum for x years and have been playing Diablo since it came out," 7) regurgitate what has already been said at least once on every single page and then say, "WTF I DONT WANTZ 2 REED TEH HOLE F***IN THRED!!", and 8) are usually very immature about their posts.
Given, there are exceptions, and immaturity on a site for a game is okay (in general, though since this game is technically for adults, this shouldn't be an issue.) I've seen this time and time again, and you have to understand, from where I'm standing it gets very, very annoying.
Apr 28, 2008Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)Quote from "toolboy198302" »Hey folks, Have we ruled out a new blizzcast? maybe something leading toward d3 in it?
just doing a little brain storming
Yeah, a Blizzcast was ruled out. Supposedly, the next two Blizzcasts will not be Diablo-related. That's also a good thing- it could mean that they're too busy (the Diablo team) to do a Blizzcast.
Apr 14, 2008-.-' You're missing the point. They can't be subject to our laws or they aren't beyond nature- "super-natural". They'd be aliens or something.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
Your brain is still subject to the natural laws of our Universe.
That really has nothing to do with the angel itself.
And let's say an angel came down to you, showed itself and had a nice little chat with you. Would it not be an angel then? If it wasn't, then angels cannot possibly exist, because there'd be no way to ever notice them. If we ever did, they wouldn't be angels anymore.
That's exactly what I'm saying. They're beyond our rules. It's obviously going to confuse us because it would be like trying to define a banana with HTML- we are something completely different than them.
If were are to assume that there are angels, then we have to assume we, too, have spirituality. That is the level, then, that a "spirit" would communicate on. But, in another sense, if you assume there are angels, then something must have created them, unless you want to buy in to some kind of spiritual evolution or something, like some new agers do. If we are to assume then, for sake of argument, that angels do exist, and that they also have a creator, we would have to assume that the same being created our spirituality, and, thus, everything that would come along with that, primarily meaning everything, at which point the creator would be called "god". And if this god were to create everything, he or she would have no chains to our rules, and thus be able to change them or go beyond them at anytime he/she so wishes. So, this god could command the angel to appear to deliver some kind of divine message, and then take whatever necessary steps he or she so chooses to keep that creature from being defined quantitatively.

Nut? Lol, I don't know where these guys are coming from, but they sure are hilarious.
Not in the good way, mind you.

We should meet up sometime.

This thread is not for discussing Bioshock either. Come on guys, it isn't that hard to stay on topic. If you don't have anything to say about the actual topic at hand, don't say anything.

Well I was hoping for some curse input on this to get some info on whether this is possible or not.Quote from "Seth" »
It really shouldn't be that hard to implement. Just get the template used for constructing vBulletin pages, add some links here and there, some conditional statements, add a table to the database, and link users to their trophies with a short script. (And then the display of the data, but that really shouldn't be that hard, either). The hardest part would probably be the moderation interface(s). There's probably a dozen good modules out there for trophies, though.
Exacly. It's not supposed to work as a substitute for other prizes, just as a complementary feature.Quote from "Seth" »
I really think- well, continue to think, I suppose- this would be a very good way to bring members together and, obviously, would be an awesomely convenient way to reward users. In the past, we've mostly only been able to reward users with custom titles or, very rarely, merchandise or tickets. (Of course, it would be nice if we could get more of the latter, too, but I think a proper trophies module would be a good first step to a better system.)
All good ideas, and precisely the things that should be pointed out. Otherwise no one will remember what users have helped out with news tips in the pats, but with some trophies, it'll be known by everybody.Quote from "Seth" »
This would be really great. Rewards for really contributory members, like Kamrad who has really brought a lot of life to the previously-dead RP subforum, several users who have found a lot of news things and PMed or posted them to get them in the announcements forum, and so on, would be really a great way of rewarding.
Other ideas would be to implement wiki rewards as well. You could get trophies for how many good guides you've written, how many edits you've done, information written and other things. It would have to be a manual process done by us, but I think it could work. So long as the trophies aren't too ambiguous, it should be pretty straight-forward.
Aug 28, 2009Posted in: Site FeedbackQuote from "Zoltrix" »Hey Pryda,
I went into your User CP in the Admin control panel and it should be fixed now
EDIT: Also, to fix this yourself for anyone else who is having the problem this is all you should need to do
Click on User CP
Edit Options (under the settings and options on your side list)
Scroll down to the box called " Messaging & Notification"
there there is something called your "Default Thread Subscription Mode" it is a drop down menu and select "Do Not Subscribe"
this should fix it and in that same box there is a link that you can view all the threads that you have subscribed and you can remove them from the list as well
Please look at previous posts in a thread next time Jamoose
Aug 27, 2009Used to play these kind of forum games back when I was a part of the Spore Forums.Posted in: Roleplaying
So pretty much it's a game about evolution (From cell phase to space (if we get that far :|)
People will have a vote after every update, deciding on what you want your organism to do.
Usually when I have +5 votes I will update.
So first up.
VOTE FOR A CELL:
HEALTH POINTS - Obviously your health points. Once this reaches zero, you will die, and must start over with a new cell. Health points can be regenerated over a period of time.
SKILL POINTS - Determine how many times you can use a skill. Once this reaches zero, you must wait for you skill points to be regenerated.
TO-HIT - Verses the enemies dodge.
ATTACK - Verses the enemies defence.
DEFENCE - Reduces the amount of damage done to you.
SPEED - Verses the enemies to-hit. Also determines how fast you can escape.
Shape A (Health):
HP (Health Points) - 7
SP (Skill points) - 3
TH (Max To-Hit) - 5
ATK (Max Attack) - 3
DEF (Max Defence) - 4
SPD (Max Speed) - 3
Shape B (Average):
HP - 5
SP - 3
TH - 5
ATK - 4
DEF - 4
SPD - 4
Shape C (Speed):
HP - 5
SP - 3
TH - 5
ATK - 3
DEF - 2
SPD - 7
Shape D (Defensive):
HP - 5
SP - 3
TH - 5
ATK - 3
DEF - 7
SPD - 2
Shape E (Offensive):
HP - 5
SP - 3
TH - 5
ATK - 7
DEF - 2
SPD - 3
Those of you who are familiar with my previous game "Fantasy Tactics" the battle system is similar to that.
It's easy. Just vote for the cell you think is best to survive, and the game will continue on from there.
E.g. I vote for Shape A.
Aug 25, 2009Posted in: News & AnnouncementsQuote from "nickm83" »My god this change might just be worse then respecs. Any character relying on elemental damage is now completely worthless for dueling.
A proper dueling character before had his inventory full and stash full and still wanted more. Why? Becuase they had weaknesses against some other builds. Way to go blizzard, instead of tweaking how absorbs and res works so you cant bm every elemental build so damn easily, you instead make it even easier to bm everyone.
Its ok, its well worth completely screwing up pvp, which is a main reason why a lot of people have played the game for so long, so some noob can hold more gems because its too damn hard to xfer them, which takes less then a minute.
You gotta be kidding me. You again? And this time its more ridiculous than your arguments for respec.
Aug 22, 2009Dead_Metal posted a message on If you could play as any monster in the game, what would you be?I'd be one of those succubus-type flying demon ladies from Act V.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I'd spend my whole life doing ill deeds...only to be slain by some great hero, and cry out in ecstasy: "Aaaaahhhhh!"
Aug 22, 2009Hate to say this, a couple of your signatures cannot be used as it violates Rule 4D, one is 200 pixels tall and the other is 209, and you can only have a signature 150 pixels tall.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
Other then that, best of luck to your signature-making future!!!
