I didn't know where to look or post, so hopefully this is the right place:

What is the gameology-fu rating, and how does it work?

Quote from: StormKnight
Totally true.  Historians believe that most past civilizations would have endured for centuries longer if they had successfully determined Batman's alignment.
Quote from: Grand Theft Otto
Why are so many posts on the board the equivalent of " Dear Dr. Crotch, I keep punching myself in the crotch, and my groin hurts... what should I do? How can I make my groin stop hurting?"
Quote from: CryoSilver
I suggest carving "Don't be a dick" into him with a knife.  A dull, rusty knife.  A dull, rusty, bent, flaming knife.
Quote from: Seerow
Fluffy: It's over Steve! I've got the high ground!
Steve: You underestimate my power!
Fluffy: Don't try it, Steve!
Steve: *charges*
Fluffy: *three critical strikes*
Steve: ****

I don't even stat out commoners. Commoner = corpse that just isn't a zombie. Yet.
Quote from: CryoSilver
When I think "Old Testament Boots of Peace" I think of a paladin curb-stomping an orc and screaming "Your death brings peace to this land!"

Pfffft. I used to be on a forum where they had a rank only for people with 20,000+ posts. They sure liked to spam...
I've got over nine thousand posts on gleemax.

It wasn't that hard to get a lot of posts at gleemax. Back in 2005-2007, the forum was really bristling with activity, and I was easily making 20-30+ posts each day. It was only in the past few months (with the announcement of 4e) that the rate of posting started to slow, and these days, it barely qualifies even as a trickle!

Come to think of it, boy, that sure was a lot of my youth spent in front of the comp arguing about dnd theories... :sh

I don't consider the many, many days spent on the forums a waste though.  I now consider myself a well-rounded and--more importantly--non-sheltered gamer and I am grateful for the opportunity.

Is this the place to say hello? If so, "Hello!" If not, well, too bad -- "Hello!"

I'm gonna need to find a new avatar, I guess. My pint looks more like a shot glass...

Introductions go here:

But you, my friend, are free to say hi whereever you want! 

Oh.  Wait.  Giving Zherog permission like that probably isn't a good idea. 

Your pint does look all squash-ed.   But  :cheers anyway!

You could also say it over here if you like.

Man, it's like all the worthwhile people from the gleemax boards are gradually ending up over here.  There are some I've not seen yet but I'd not be surprised to see them show up eventually.

And I've been ninja'ed.

Well, since you slept with me at GenCon I figure I had a bit more pull with you...

Meg -- any chance of increasing the allowed avatar size?

Wow.  A formula.  We are indeed giant nerds.

You should also include the context in which you quote me - otherwise, I'm just spouting random profanity-laced comments.  Which isn't to say that I don't do that in real life, but I was actually trying to make a point. :)
