When GiantITP is Down...

I get a strange sense of elation.

It's weird, I know, but think of all those times we spent agonizing over when the forums would return to us! Those plots that went on hold. Those times when you missed someone being online who you've been waiting for. Those times when you were just near about driven crazy by the wait.

Now think about the fact that you don't have to worry about that!

DOESN'T IT FEEL GREAT?! Mr. Green
Baeleck

Yup, sure does. Worrying about the boards going down is a thing of the past! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
Wukei

Yea, I only posted in the Town...and I do want to help the Town grow, and came up with a plot for it...apparently that's on the back burner for eternity now.
Gnrlshrimp

It is great not having to worry about the forums going down any more. And yeah, it did kind of suck having to leave plots for several hours, possibly a whole day if someone wasn't online. But that's a thing of the past...

Actually, it's just been transferred to a new stove. This is still the Town! Just better! Way better!
Timberwolf

Actually Ms E, you forgot an option

Option 6, slightly smug

Heh... I thought that fit under "I laugh." Twisted Evil

But you have a point. Wink
The Chilli God

It's a pity that I still have other things that I still need to attend on the GitP forums.
Like, say, pbp games.

But yeah, I do feel some... relief? That I don't have to get up and do actual work just because of their server giving out.
atreyu_the_masked_llama

Its still sad for those of us werewolf fans and friendly banterers. Werwolf is fun, I get to muck with heads on a regular basis.
Timberwolf

of course, it would be brilliant if WW7 didn't seem to be dead in the water.
NecroPaladin

It feels strangely liberating, although I still like the d20 forums.
El Jaspero

I feel a touch sad, but head off to do something else eventually.
Uberblah

I still get a little dissappointed because not all my characters have made it here yet because the characters they interact with do not have players that have been invited here.

Ah... let me know who they are and I'll give them a looksee. ^_^
Castaras

...I'm the only one who cries? Sad

Eh well. I'm a FBer, SMBGeek, and Arts n Crafts lurker as well as a Townie, which is why I feel sad when the forums go down...

I can't get my Homebrew fix when they go down, either.

The only two that are not here that my characters interact with are ValKey (who is in the process of moving and will be back soon hopefully) and Magtok i believe.

And I'm also a SMBGer and an FBer, but I don't cry. Just pretty upset.
Damon

I chuckle...evily
atreyu_the_masked_llama

i suppose it is certainly ironic that the first time in a week I make a serious appearance in GitP and start talking to Jacklu, that the forums crash cuz of the new comic, but wow...what a comic.
Uberblah

Miko's dead!! I laugh. And that means that stocks in MIKO are going to plummet. Also, I think some people are becoming suspicious about what happened to the GitP Town.
atreyu_the_masked_llama

I would be if I were them. At least 1/2 of the regulars stop posting or greatly scale back, that's gotta have people asking "hey, what happened to person X?" "How has the Temple of Inari almost fallen to page 2?"

Ah well, as the ashes of the old drift away to pages 2 and 3 and beyond, GitP Town will grow new temples and establishments and eventually many of them will grow tired of the way things are going and they will drift off to parts unknown and the cycle will begin again with a 3rd batch of people.
Shadow of the Sun

People whom we can steal...
Uberblah

There's still some stealable people there that we're missing who are suspicious I'm sure.
atreyu_the_masked_llama

osnagard? I like him. Seems like a good lad.
atreyu_the_masked_llama

Are you kidding?? Some of our best people and ideas are from the obsessed. If Fenric wasn't obsessed with foxes then we'd not have our Temple to Inari.
Wukei

I have OCD, so being obsessed isn't hard ^.~
Gnrlshrimp

Yes but this is bad obsessed, this is "I will win absolutely any battle because there are billions of imperial guard soldiers that can all be summoned here because I say so" obsessed...

Whats worng with Warhammer 40k obsessions?
Gnrlshrimp

Nothing, what is wrong is using that obsession in the town in the ways that two certain people in the old town have been...Go read it and see how they've abused the imperial guard.
The Chilli God

I'm trying to feed one or two of my personal friends into the Old Town. If they're as good on forum roleplaying as they are in real life (And if one of them tries to avoid overuse of his 40K obsession...)
atreyu_the_masked_llama

Whoops, I may have just started a plot in GitP town it ressurect the monster that used to live under Trog's and may be the source of the mysterious tentacles.


Did anyone ever explain those?
J. Muller

Yeah... I've been getting the brunt of the 40k mania. Just take a look at the FE ZoC and Moon Base threads.
Timberwolf

My soon to be ex housemate is getting fed up of the dead boards he rp's on, hates godmodders and is considering Old Town too. I don't think he has a 40K obsession either.
Uberblah

Magtok? I mean come on, we have Castaras. (no offense, just a reference to AMENites in Town)
J. Muller

It appears we just stole Renegade Paladin.

Matter of time, in my opinion.
Shadow of the Sun

I've got a real life friend who is interested in coming here...she's been cleared by Vael who didn't want to tarnish new blood in the Cesspit.
The Chilli God

What? Vael does that sort of thing without credentials?
Well, not that I'd want to with my friends. They haven't a word of experience with RP'ing forums, so I can't vouch for them. Sad

Also, Cesspit? When did that term spring up?
Shadow of the Sun

She still needs to join, and he's gonna talk to her, but yeah.
Orange Zergling

I have a 40k 'obsession', but I've only acted on it once... and that character is long gone. Nowadays I'd say I'm shifting back into my Starcraft obsession... or I'm just really getting into the invasion plot, one or the other. Or both.
And Imperial Guard are awsome.
Destro Yersul

I too have a 40k obsession. It's not going to show up in town any time soon though. My Halo obsession did that already, and one futuristic character is enough for me.
Renegade Paladin

Just a little. Wink

I take it I was either overlooked or placed in the last category. Razz I'm not online so much. Might want to take that into consideration when talking about why people fall off posting.
J. Muller

Yeah, we've noticed that too. I suppose it's a good thing we stole you before you just left Old Town.
Gnrlshrimp

Actually I was reffering to the people who are on so infrequently that basically nothing happens. Who is a good example, I don't think I've ever seen his character do more than enter Trog's, talk to some people and juggle...and occasionally show off the TARDIS...
Uberblah

Has anyone else noticed the new person? Was (s)he on Olde Town? Just joined recently.
McBish

Yeah, good roleplayer in my opinon.
Darkblade

He threatened Hamilton once. I think the people who post rarely might stop posting though when they see that all the good RPs are either gone or posting alot less.
J. Muller

Seftsirag (sp?) is good, yeah. Very enjoyable to interact with.
Renegade Paladin

Hey Muller, while we're here, I've got a question. What do you want Gaheris and company to do with those Fourth Empire guys, or do you care? I can't exactly leave them with the police while the police are in shambles and mostly gone to here, and he won't execute them, but other than that basically whatever goes.
J. Muller

There's a parley going on in Trog's between the FE and the people who were attacking the city. If peace is established, the FE can arrange for a pickup, though they won't have much to exchange for them unless Gaheris accepts gold.
Renegade Paladin

He's not taking hostages here. Frankly, at this point he'd be happy to just unload them.
J. Muller

Then I suppose he could contact the FE somehow... They'll be maintaining a bit of a presence in the Town.
Moozy

Please don't tell me we'll get too big. This isn't exactly a great software, and could get to even MORE laggy that GitP.

Ahh, I chose "I don't even notice." I'm hoping to only really go there for OotS now. The only part of the GitP forums I really liked was the Town, and it's here now, so...
atreyu_the_masked_llama

YES!! BRING BACK MY WEREWOLF GAMES!! I miss being Fluffy. Come back, GitP, come back!!
Castaras

I'm so glad I posted in Ultimate Greed before the forums started lagging...*sigh*
