Keep It Clean, Gentlemen

Just consider this a general warning. While no one's been specifically breaking our Code of Conduct, a quick glance back over it might not be a bad idea. While we have codified rules, I think there's also an overarching spirit of the boards which I really want to see fostered.

In other words, if you guys could curb the rhetoric, the angry tone, the derision of opposing views, a bit, I would very much appreciate it. I would be inclined to get rid of a controversy section before I watched it devolve into what most other boards become.

The admins on this site are such forum Nazis.

Its the damndest thing. I had written a somewhat humerous post addressing the same thing, not more then an hour ago.

But I just looked at it, and then hit the back arrow b/c I figured no one would give a damn about my opinion.

Honestly, if you brought back the classic ''roll'' icon, it would neatly sumarize some feelings that currently have to be typed out, which then leads to a more colorful commentary.

So, if you want to practice what you preach, you''ll give us back our ''roll''.

I''ll ban you in a hearbeat!

fine, f-ya.....keep the ''roll''.

No, Yomm. Damn, you jumped into the line of fire. I''ll ban Certis. You I''ll keep around because I like your avatar.

I know, I was kiddin''.

If not for that one day when I lost my temper, I''d be dancing my moral holier-then-thou dance at everyone else.

But you didn''t mention when it was you''d be bringing back that classic ''roll''...?...

What religion do you belong to? The Raelians? Bigomists?

Emoticons make it so easy, don''t they?

No, the ""If you don''t shut the fu....."" ummmmm, the ''feel goody its all a beautiful thing, cool to disagree, meeting of minds'' one.

Now it looks like I''m going to be a suck up, but the point I *was* going to make was:

1) Its ok to say ""hmm, thats a good point"" or ""huh, you know I never saw like that"".
2) Be the bigger person and admit error or fault, from time to time, it makes any future points made more respectable.
3) When someone shouts ""Ying"" your first instinct doesn''t have to yell the reply of ""Yang"".
4) I was going to point out that Elysium makes it a discussion, not an argument, and as such, I find him the most plesant to disagree with, not withstanding the dreamworld he lives in. Certis....well, he''s the one who took the ''roll'' from me, and somewhere deep deep inside of me there is a tiny black solid ball of burning hatred that is simmering and calling out for his blood.....
5) Certis should be (*^#%% to a totem pole and ()^&#$ his &(^)%_ until his *()^% is *^)!@#^
6) Its ok to be funny, just don''t cut too deep
7) We''re not going to solve the world''s problems in here, but we should be able to walk away thinking something diffrent.

There were a few others, but now its not nearly as cute as it could have been.

Certis may have taken the roll, but gave us the and the

Should we be grateful?

I think so! We already have our insider jokes here at GWJ, and that after only a few months of being in business

I''d love to have a IMAGE(http://www.smiliemania.de/smilie.php?smile_ID=444) smilie. Just fits my mood very often.

EDIT: oh yeah and this is the best icon to tell somebody to calm down and be nice again. After all who can resist a fine pint

I want the smilie that embodies the abbreviation ROTFLMFAO.

hrm tough one:

Do they have one where he''s rolling, laughing, crying, AND pounding his fist on the floor in sheer humor ecstacy?

No, shame isn''t it. If you take a look at the site there are hundreds, but none coming even close to ROTFLMFAO.

Baby, I never meant to hurt you this way! It''s not my fault the original roll icon was so malicious and evil. No good could come of it and it allowed people to be lazy by replying with an icon instead of something intelligent.

I tried to make it up to you with rainbow fro'' icon and it wasn''t enough. I even added a hump smilie and you ignored it. Well, I hope this new group of icons I''ve added to the stable will somehow melt your heart so you can come back to me.

Replace the "";"" with a "":""


Everyone likes pirates! ;pirate;


Chris, I took the liberty of taking the drinking icon there and adding a Guinness label. ;drink;


A little something for those of you who need some extra lovin'' ;kiss;


Leave it to the reporter icon when news is afoot! ;reporter;


If only some of you could hear our Strongbad techno singing over Team Speak last thursday. ;sing;


A new and animated wink! ;wink2;

Yomm, baby, why can''t we be friends?

Why can''t we be friends?
Why can''t we be friends?
Why can''t we be friends?
Why can''t we be friends?
Why can''t we be friends?
Why can''t we be friends?

Arrrrrrr

Time to get drunk

Oh I love a good spirited debate. If someone dishonors another, I suggest we have a duel in Everquest like Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr.

If only some of you could hear our Strongbad techno singing over Team Speak last thursday.

The system is down, the system is down, the system is down, down down down down, tah tah toh dah tah toh toh dah dahh dohhhh

lol, yeah, but who wants to be killed by a politician whose claim to fame is ""I killed Alexander Hamilton"". And on a side note, I love ya''ll, remember that when anger strikes, let it warm the cockles of your heart...............

Never warm another man''s cockle.

your supposed to warm your own.........

If only some of you could hear our Strongbad techno singing over Team Speak last thursday. ;sing;

Ahhh if only the rest of you could have heard it.... It easily took away that spark of guilt I felt for accidentally Killing Pyro....I could just picture Certis, Elysium and Pyro dancing in a Strongbad stylee whilst trying to play Raven Shield!

personally, i''m a bigger fan of ""Trogdor The Burninator!"", mainly because i hate peasents....... and carnies........... small hands, smell like cabbage.........

Flag day, guitar, the one with Ali and her sister, they are all great! Strongbad is what makes my monday (alliteration galore). Of course, the ballad of the Sneak is the. best. evar.!!!!11

I ussualy only get mean in the comments, then I can just claim it was typo I couldn''t fix
