    Yeah. No worries. I'll make sure that nobody has a wild party just because dad's gone away for a few days.

    Geez, sad to see this place in such a sorry state. The only conversation for the past couple days seems to be between the acting mod and the former mod.

    Hopefully, my being here will change that, however minor said change may be. :D

    So, I feel really ashamed. I have this bigass arc planned out to go into a lot of detail concerning how the School came to be and all that kind of stuff, but life got in the way. Don't worry, you guys aren't the only ones I've had to neglect a little, but I'm still very sorry for the whole thing.

    The arc IS coming, and I will do my best to get more posts in here. But yeah, I just wanted to let everyone know that I haven't abandoned this place or anything, the SoB Mod Curse shall not befall me. ;)

    You can't fight it. It will win eventually.

    You may think that, but I'm stronger than the rest.

    Also the fact that I barely have a life most of the time should work in my favour. ;)

    Weird... the moment I resolved myself to keep posting, I got a job. Not to mention a special lady friend who has suddenly become interested in dating. 0_0

    This "curse" is looking pretty good so far. Just gotta set aside some time to post every now and then. Totally. I can do it... I CAN DO IT!

    NEW THREAD COMING NEXT WEEK... HOPEFULLY! ;)

    Congratulations on the whole "life" thing coming together. I've just got a new job, too, so I know how that takes up time, even if mine is only 4 days a week.

    Have I missed anything? Been meaning to get back in here but between helping family with stuff, new videogames, and my PayPal info being stolen a month ago I haven't had the time. Said PayPal fiasco has caused me to develop a hatred of all that is Croatia.

    Edit: Also sorry for bailing on you like that Nato.

    No probs, I'm used to having threads die after posting in them and also I understand that pretty much everyone but me has a life. :D #checkssobforupdatesdaily

    Work takes up time.

    Wooing the ladies takes up time.

    Volunteering to make a game takes up time.

    Writing a story takes up time.

    Playing video games take up time.

    Overall, I blame Andy for not kicking my ass and getting me in here enough. Hi guys, just making sure you're all (Yeah, "all". Bahaha!) still here. For a moment I thought I was gonna be demodded when I logged in due to my not being here for a bit longer than I expected.

    I saw my modship flash before my eyes. XD

    There's mods that are a LOT more inactive than you. :D

    You're making a video game?

    Well, that makes me feel a little better. ;)

    And yes, indeed I am. I'm a member of the Generation Zero team. Perhaps you've heard of us? We have a rather large following of Facebook.

    I haven't, I'm afraid, but I'm not that clued up with what's happening in video games at the moment.

    How did you get involved with it? Is it done over the internet?

    The two guys that started it went to the same high school as me, and I was on good terms with them. lol

    But many of our team members are from all around the world. We do a Skype Meeting once a week to check everyone's progress and discuss ideas for the game, and then go back to working individually for the rest of the week. We've also got a production group on Facebook for us to discuss things at any time. We use Dropbox to share our files with each other too.

    I was brought on board originally as a Beta Tester, but when they found out I could write, I was brought up to NPC Dialogue and Story. It's pretty fun, even if we're not making any money.

    The reason we can't make money of it btw is because it's a Pokemon Fan Game. We're making a totally original story based around Professor Oak's childhood, but since we're using things that belong to Game Freak and Nintendo, we don't want to get sued. (Also, we're making it on RPG Maker XP, not hacking something that shall not be named)

    Certainly an interesting idea.

    I'm sure none of us would object if Professor Oak met Professor Rum?dia either. ;)

    I'll check it out at some stage!

    Its a common thing for someone to pop in here and claim to be back but we are caught in a bad loop. Its difficult to get this place active because its too spread out when someone appeara. By the time they lose interest due to the lack of activity someone else will pop up. What a loop. Anyways, i have a story i hope to post up here soon, just need to get a few more details hammered out before i post

    Yeah. It's difficult when everybody involved in the story is aware that it's pretty much just for the sake of activity.

    Well. Couldn't get back because of a string of things happening. Starting with a severe four-day sinus infection, then trying to fix my car (while on the tail end of the sinus infection) but breaking something else on it in the process, and the only good thing to happen which is Halo 4. Still trying to fix the car. How's everyone else doing in the real world?

    Mainly work, to be honest. I've got a day off today so I'm trying to catch up on all the tv I have missed.

    Unsung heroes, really. Not going to get the credit that it deserves!
     
  27. My word, it's been a while. I'm honestly surprised this place still exists. Surprised, but not at all disappointed.

    Hello, ladies and gentlemen.

    I... don't think we've had the pleasure. Perhaps you were before my time? Hello there Shadow, nice to meet you. My name is Unwanted, feel free to call me TU.

    What's up?
     
  29. We've met, although it wasn't for too long. In a roleplay thread, several years ago, entitled 'The Sonic Adventure!'. I've been here, too, in the SoB. Played an old sociopath scientist, by the name of Grim. That too was several years ago.

    But, to answer your question? I'm very well, thank you. Yourself?

    Ah, I see. You'll have to forgive me, my mind isn't what it used to be you see! I've forgotten much of the old days (mainly due to my horrid writing, and a need to block it out, haha). I'm doing well too, though things could ALWAYS be doing better. So, did you happen to drop by because you're interested in role playing once more, or is it just to chat? Either is perfectly acceptable. ^_^
