For real, whats up with this ===> I'm a moron? I just want to point out a major flaw in FFXI because everyone, ALWAYS, I'm a moron at them.

What else does that?

Can I get a special one time title for 500posts?

Why can't we get some FFXIV news on the main zam.com page? All I see is games I don't play.

If you could call anyone in the world, who would it be and what would you say?

Any chance the NHL season will start before January 1, 2013?

I will take my questions off the air, thank you.

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck had a chainsaw?

Lucky Number Sleven, terrible or deeply underrated and entertaining?

Why the **** do I watch Ghost Adventures? Seriously, it's awful, but whenever it's on I have to watch it.

Can we get a basic rundown on how scholar guru system works or at least order of importance?

Also how about revisiting the Legendary "Yellow" thread.

Also, any admins out there, what is your favourite flavor of ice cream?

I have recently discovered Cherry Marscapone and Pistachio Gelato. This have been bad for my diet. On the other hand, those little diet cups of frozen Greek Yogurt are pretty **** good.

Pie or cake: The aforementioned Hot Fudge Pudding Cake. Also bad for my diet.

M0nk item (without the 0) was the first. Then came the hovercrafts full of eels for p@ge gets, and the chuck N0rris redirects. There are about a dozen of them, they work off the same code that puts a smilie in posts.

I dunno, I don't play that game. I suspect they lack good sources of news or there isn't much news at the moment. if you see anything interesting, write it up and send it to the news staff. people have been hired around here for doing things like that (though there are no garuntees or even statistical likelyhood of that happening)

None, he'd go take the wood by force from the other woodchucks. who is going to stop the crazy chainsaw wielding burgler woodchuck? I mean, you know he steals things because woodchucks don't have money to buy chainsaws, and no one in their right mind just gives a chainsaw to a woodchuck.

Never actually saw it. I keep waiting for it to show up on cable somewhere.

Dalans wrote:

Sure! Unrated is "nuked through the floor" usually requires an admin to achieve this coveted rank. Sub default is below about 2.30. no title is a default 3.00 base karma. Scholar kicks in at 3.01 base karma and goes to about 3.75something. Then you hit sage. sage lasts until you hit guru. Guru is designed to be next to imossible to get, most peoploe should be scholars or sages. What else would you like to know about karma?
[quote=Dalans]Also how about revisiting the Legendary "Yellow" thread.

I dunno what that one is.
[quote=BonYogi]For all admins, are any of you left handed and do you have any adapting-to-a-right-handed-world stories?

I write equilly badly with either hand. I used to drive baseball coaches insane because I would just bat from whatever side of the plate I happened to walk up it from, and i'd often switch mitts mid game just to annoy them. It comes in handy sometimes...

Well, that would get you default base karma. make it $0.50 and i'll throw in the "unrated" special. $453 in the next ten minutes lets you keep scholar $1 per post? that seems fair! Guru requires large amounts of cash. all that finger clicking is tireing. i could get carp tunnels! then the carp could get in!!!

(or we could just leave it as is and let nature and green arrows take their own course. up to you)

Well, I missed the deadline, whats new? Thanks anyway, I had that $453 ready to go, my wife sold lots of stuff on Ebay this month. The money was for Christmas shopping but I think having a title on the Zam forums would have been a much better use of it. O well, to late now anyway. Thanks for trying to help.

HA, 2 x edits = I'm a moron!

On the forums here alone? I dunno, i tend to average about 60-70 words per post when you factor in some of my longer ones, I'd guess somewhere north of 2 million give or take, just on these forums and not counting my in progress novel, various work documents, etc.

Lionheartviii wrote:

It's actually a trick. There are really 12 hotdogs in the package, but 2 of them are made of dark matter, and thus inobservable by current scientific detection methods. Technically they are in their own pocket universe, caused mainly by the materials from whence they were created. Don't ask, you don't really want to know, and the hot Dog gestapo would have to "dissappear" you if you knew the horrible secret.

I have baked muffins on accasion, so... I might BE the muffinman!
Lionheartviii wrote:

Hydroxyle Uranium Hydrate. Nasty stuff. Never spill it on your carpet. Especially if you have ants prone to mutation.

Horsemouth wrote:

Nope, when it gets so big it bogs the forum down, it will go away and turn in to "part 2" thread. Thus is the eventual fate of all large threads.

Just on ZAM? I'm not as verbose here as I am on other forums, I couldn't even guess. Been killing keyboards just about since there were keyboards, though.

Lionheartviii wrote:

I just counted. Hot Dogs come in packs of 8.

Lionheartviii wrote:

That lives on Drury Lane? Yes. He worked at Hostess, and I hear he's unemployed now and living on his Union benefits.

Is it even close to being that big?

Has any other thread lasted for over three years?

Is over 18k posts a lot for a single thread?

I editted this post for quote fail and abbreviated your name, is that a problem?
