Now that the Tavern is out of reach for the common rabble, I think we could start using this area for discussing the characters of various users. Placing this thread here and not the Admin HQ as usual is perhaps more useful, since even the guys without admin status can participate, and it's not like we could leak anything important this way with the Tavern hidden.

The first question I'd like to throw out there is on DeathRiderDoom... I mean, come on, his band is called "Gaywyre", with an EP called Coming Out. He's extremely friendly to handsome and masculine fellows (like me) on the IRC, and I know that Kiwis, generally, are not that puristic on their attitudes on not-quite-that-straight folks. Not that it matters, it's not like he could ever physically touch me, but anyway, just asking... Opinions?

Nah, DDR is alright.

What we really need to talk about is my secret forum crush! I don't know what to do, guys, I've never had problems with relationships before. See, I used to be really pretentious and overly serious, and I never really had a serious relationship with anyone before - outside of my hand, my dog, of course, or that skull I fucked one time - but the thing is, how do I go about this? I just don't know. I can't be bothered to let the person know I love them, let alone to know I want to fuck their brains out. Literally. I've grown my hair out to please them, and I go out of my way to say "hi", but it's like they don't even see me or notice me or want me... ARRRGH, why god why. Why am I stuck forever wanting that which I can not have. There's no way I could possibly enjoy metal if I keep thinking about how much I care about that person. See, I've never had a significant other who likes metal...

*sigh*

Help me out guys, pweese?

I know what you are going through, youngster. I had the same situation when I was your age. If you don't want to share names, that's OK, but it would help if you did. We could perhaps give you some advice. I have this sense with people, and I might make some educated guesses.

Personally, I found it easier to lower my own standards. Being married to a woman with a prosthetic leg and a serious infatuation with finnish tango is OK once you get user to it, and I guess I can't ask for too much, with my colostomy bag and everything. You know, it's easier to settle for something than keep hitting your head against the wall in pursuit of something that's clearly out of your league.

Well, it's obvious: appearance isn't the only thing. Saying "hi" isn't the only way of communicating with them verbally; instead, perform acts of kindness (read: deception) and help them out, so they will come on to you much more easily. That will make your intention of fucking their brains out a much easier task. :nods:

Oh, and deodorant and cologne. I hear smell is a better deciding factor than looks are.

One day, my friend, one day; persistence is key. For now, people have to try and learn to be happy with what they have.

Yeah, durd's sexuality is definitely in question. He claims to have a girlfriend, but going by the pictures "she" could easily be a tranny.

And speaking of gay, WebOfPiss has been coming on to me and others, trying to get us to join webcam chats, and bringing up various homosexual subjects. Then there was that whole incident where he clumsily hit on ortab, and talked about menstrual sex - of course something no true heterosexual would ever consider. Then there's his questionable relationship with TheGrimWombat...

Newb. Everybody knows it's a decent ersatz for whiskey if necessary. Also, in non-crack whore circles, most chicks actually think it's mouthwash.

I was talking about DRD, Deri dear. "Durd" is what I call him, an acronym of sorts.

IBTL!

Og, do you think you could abuse your power and pull rank whenever it's necessary? I mean, we have these OzzyApus and erickg13s and was it Wrathofwar or something, who are lowly members of the US military, and being a major general, you could push them around. Like:

User: "Whinewhinetrolltroll"
Og: "Shut up, drop and give me two hundred!"
User: "Aw crap!" *sweats like a little piggy*

Yeah, I can do that. Fail that, I could ban them until they did their push ups. I do it all the time.

Tell them they have to do 50 pushups (or whatever number is appropriate to their offense) on camera to be unbanned. I'm serious. Noktorn should have to do 100 pushups and send us the video.

We could make the least popular mod of the day watch the video and confirm the number of push-ups. I mean, who would voluntarily watch Noktorn doing anything?

Failed attempt to assign The Tavern a mod-only status, or elaborate joke? :D

EDIT: Looked at the dates. In which case: Yay, regular FFA time.

Love the new title. And wow, looking at all of the "lock posts"...this was actually a really good one, despite my earlier claims to the contrary. I especially like FSM's declaration on the old FFA. "We're not doing this anymore."

And the ones about Virginia, the Jesus one and some others. Not bad at all. :lol:

So, in the absence of this thread I came up with something good. Anyone familiar with boffer? Just played it yesterday and had a ton of fun, and will go back again. Fake swords and other weapons battling it out. Really a great exercise and a lot of fun.

Strip the FFA of the immature common users and you get a page full of gay jokes. I propose that it wasn't us that was the problem, we were all just trying to keep up with the mods!

I'm so glad this place is back, I will kiss Morrigan's feet and suck all of the male mod's toes as a token of my appreciation.

Reading the post about bans has reminded me, it would be cool to have a Metal Archive Archive's board, or blog or something, after reading about the Encyclopedia of sorts they used to have.

I like though that their going to be a bit tighter about posters being dicks, it's really annoying when you get posts that are just flames without any content.


Edit: I'm pretty hurt I'm no one' secret crush, I'm not the most metal guy on the board, but I could be a good pretty boy toy just like Gaahl's.

Also if it makes any of the mod's happier I didn't get the April fools joke, I didn't know it was April fools and I didn't find the thread about it for three days.

Couldn't you just start another one? Unless the mods are serious about all the closing statements they have on the locked threads...but if that's the case, how am I supposed to find a Friend's Band Forum?! :lol:

The big sticky post about bans reminds me a lot of another forum I used to visit.

Place used to be a cool forum full of mostly friends, but eventually all of the regulars left, mods rotated in and out like crazy, and it turned into a huge dumping ground of children posting old /b/ memes.

I can certainly understand the lock-down mentality of the Admins and Mods (per Fail's Ban sticky), but the forums have evolved a lot since then as well. M-A, for me at least, is no longer about just metal, it's about my entire lifestyle, because most of what I enjoy, I can find a topic about here. Not only this, but I know the people, too. We've definitely become more of a family (some of us, at least), and I think the state of the boards reflects that.

However, I am all for banning the /b/tards. Fuck those guys.

I'm particularly sad about the sport thread. My best posts were in there, actually...oh well?

Anyone else annoyed with how much people spunk over Kalisia in the Rec. section? The current concept album thread for instance. It is a bit over the top.

Are there any future plans to sticky any topics in the Tavern?
It does clean the forums up a lot, just look at the good that local metal shop one did.

The tavern is back I see. Anyway, Indestructible noise commands albums have to be some of the best most underrated thrash albums ever, really fun stuff. I finally got the Razorback cd off their drummer, he sent me it for free :headbang:
