Ok, so here goes nothing the mog blog, the totally secret totally super awesome blog of our plans to take over sorry I meant staff these forums. Everyone can see these threads but my other competitors, seems fun. I can point out how much Arthur snores and he can't see it. He snores BADLY and really loudly, in fact the one time he spent a night crashing at mine, the only people to get some sleep was me and my mate who heard that and literally to quote said "fuck that noise, Steve I'm going to sleep on the other half of your bed! I'd rather be thought of as your bitch than share with that dude!" That made me feel better!

Ok so there's like some questions that we've been asked to answer some kind of Freycrest interview esque type only the bad type like the ones on MTV Cribs where they don't actually show you the interviewer asking the questions, they just jarringly cut the answers together with a bad voice over what has nothing to do with the actual interview.

What makes a good member? Well a good member is someone who is active, contributes to the sense of fun and entertainment in the community without being too much of an ass to people. I mean sometimes some members take it just too far and they get banned, rightfully so. A good member ought to know when they're crossing the line and they really ought to either pull back or have one hell of a reason for doing so.

What makes a good CK? A good CK is someone who can tell when members are having a laugh and when members are going too far. A lot of communities have rules about interaction with each other and a lot of them enforce them too strictly the love-hate friendships we have on here would get the admin's and mod's all riled up and that's no fun. A CK should be approachable, understanding and most of all ought to know when to have a laugh with people even if it is at their own expense.

What would I like to change about EoFF to make it better? Well what can we change? Probably a fair few people going on about how they'd like to get more new members. I'd rather just encourage people to post things more often. I know at times my own posting rate can be low but if we all tried to even just make 2 - 4 posts a day EoFF would be a lot busier at times. Seem's like some days the same 20 - 30 people are all that post.

What colour would I like my CK tag to be? Well the default is blue, varying shades of blue however then you got the people being creative like the Leeza tags. If I was going for something other than the default blue? I'd probably ask for a shade of burnt orange, something unusual that hasn't been had before.

Which staff member would I like to face in the thunderdome and what would be my tactics? Good question, I've faced one of the current staff members in thunderdome before. He ran away and refused to participate resulting in my crushing victory. However I wouldn't want to go up against Milf again, it's been done I want something new! I'd love to go up against Psy and get myself mercilessly slaughtered with an all out attack (because I freely admit he would, could and has mercilessly slaughtered me for years on XBL) in what would probably be one of the funniest and baldest Thunder Domes of all time :D

What does FF and EoFF mean to me? Well Final Fantasy games have been a mainstay in my gaming life. I've been playing them since VIII was released (I badly wanted VII but my mom refused to buy me a playstation before VIII got released. I was a megadrive kid) I look back to then, I was like 15 I'm 27 now. FF has been a teacher for me in a fair few regards. EoFF however has been a refuge, a home and a family for me on the net. There are members here I love like I love my family, there's members here who I would turn to for help before I turned to my family. All jokes aside, making EoFF a better place; helping to ensure it remains somewhere someone could come and feel at home or like they could talk about anything to people at, that's worth doing.

Now I'm off to go write some posts because it's like my job to be creative and stuff. Ciao.

Sometimes I wonder what it would feel like to only post 2-4 times a day. Right now it's something like 20-40 times. Oy vey.

That's all folks, not a particularly hard challenge to keep active in the lower forums though it certainly is time consuming to make posts what are constructive and well thought out. Though I did find someone I thought deserved repping down there on one of the posts I made. Not everyday I spot someone I hadn't noticed before making a post I feel needs to be repped so I'm actually quite happy I found that.

I already found the secret to keeping the lower forums active ;)

Lmao well Freycrest I did try. Also you ought to have an admin actually change your username to Freycrest for the duration of this imho :D

LMAO Ok, but dude I've got more to lose than you, except maybe if I forgot to use some just for men first. If I hadn't used just for men then yeah my grey bald and mad would certainly match your bald blonde and mad condition.

If Steve becomes a full skinhead then I think he should legit be given the position. Actually that should be open to anyone. Become a chrome dome and you get to be a CK. I want to see the gleam of your scalp.

Wasn't my 85% completion to that goal good enough for you damn it?

Enough of that Paul, it seriously is more annoying than Jack when he's drunk. Do you not remember how bad that can be? I can assure you I could arrange a night out with him for you. Perhaps I would come along to laugh at your discomfiture until we eventually crash in some dive of a hotel discussing whether he is still in Narnia despite sleeping with women.

Jiro, bro... I could never take it below like a grade 4, would drive me more insane than anything else.

I can't believe Steve just used the word "discomfiture" without either misspelling it or completely cocking it QUEEP QUEEP QUEEP

I can't believe Huxley managed to pull himself together to post about me without jizzing so hard he cocked it up.

Steve why do you hate being called The Queep so much? I genuinely don't get it.

Steve
08-21-2012, 07:29 PM
Because of all the many things you've named me in the past, of all the many different times I've been called things including things such as Lamb. That one hits a new low.

Hey I was trying to push the idea of calling you FruFru to everyone but it never stuck. You should be happy with the Queep, FruFru. :colbert:

What the hell are you talking about? A new low? Queep does not mean anything.

What the hell are you talking about? A new low? Queep does not mean anything.

This is exactly why it's a new low. At least calling me a Lamb or something makes some kind of sense. FruFru and Queep don't even mean anything and the sound annoys the hell out of me.

I, for one, happen to think Queep sounds beautiful. :love:

Why am I being discussed here? This is Steve's thread and as a mere onlooker to this I have to say that giving Mr Iceglow power would almost certainly result in good time shenanigans for the forum.
