So I was out front, reading the scheduled outage thread:

There were a fair number of people pissing and moaning about the downtime, but every Chit Chatter I recognized in there had something positive and/or supportive to say.

Way to go Chit Chatters. Thanks for not being dicks!

Me either. I usually stick my head out once or twice a day, just to see what's shakin'. Usually the answer to that is "nothing" and I come back in here.

Cool. I think my dog might like that. He likes meat and he likes popsicles. Good combo for him...

I just have a good sense of timing. I'm waiting until BGG is actually down, then I'll vent my outrage on the google thread.

Don't leave Chit Chat! It's a thumb-starved, oppressive, angry, negatively-charged hatestorm out there. We don't fuss about games here. We play them and talk about other stuff.

Were there? I had missed most of that thread, so went back to look for the drama (I'm a sucker for that stuff), and didn't see but maybe three comments that could be construed as negative. Are you talking about the pinned thread of Derk's?

I'm including all the people complaining about the timing, and suggesting they not take the site down on Sunday. I guess no one's being too pissy about it, but compared to the reaction it'd get in here...


Quote:

Derk Announces Chit Chat will be Down for Maintenance

Derk: Oh hey, Chit Chatters. We have to do some stuff and the Chit Chat forum'll be down for a couple of hours - maybe a day. Cool?

Chit Chat: (to Derk) No problem. Bacon.

Chit Chat: (to each other) Miss you guys! Submarine.

Mrs Mystery Bob: kiss

SO well put!

I have about 15 peeps coming around for a bbq tonight. It is almost 40degC here.... We are going to play Lupus in Tabula.

Hopefully when some of the peeps have gone home, some Thebes and Pandemic?

Oh, crap! I'm talking about games!!!!!

Sounds like my day too, cept we will stare at some Footballs too. I posted in that thread to all the nerd ragers. Told them that instead of freaking out and panicking about not being able to get on BGG, they should maybe go play a game or something.

Jeez, someone should do up a website about playing board games, I bet some folks would check that out.

I think you meant, Whereas all chit-chatters debate the opportunity of building a rocket that bores into the core of the Earth while farting and leering at all things logical, cos they don't make sense.

Hey, Last night Joe was here for SciFi movie night, it was awesome. Night before that was game night. I played Roll through the ages/Torres and Tichu. Next week we'll be playing D&D.

But here I'm going to talk about bacon, battlestar galactica, Camaro Myspace Rockbands, and making Obamaized posters...

..and everyone here understands it all. meeple
