Easy enough.  Let's declare May National No GT Month  icon_wink

But seriously folks, I don't know if it's in the same vein as the periodic 'I need to step away from games for a while' mood, but man I feel like I spend too much time on this site.

Also, do you find this place cliquey?

I don't but I guess that's cause I spend so much time here- who knows maybe I'm a part of the clique.

I hope this place doesn't feel cliquey.  I personally spend an incredible amount of time here, but that is because I'm involved.  smile

Anytime I do, I just think about how much ATB and Calvin spend here.  I then feel better.

That statement actually applies to quite a lot of things.

I would vote NO, but there is no no, only nuh, which is not part of the English Language.  I think ATB needs some time off, he's regressing to baby talk.

There's definately a #gg clique, but... that will happen when 25 people have real-time communication.
But we need fresh meat. Our jokes are running stale and we need new people to mock and berate, and be mocked and berated by.

I don't feel like I spend too much time here but there is that clock at the top of the page every time I arrive telling how much of my life I have. In my case something over three days worth. icon_eek

Overall 'Just right".

Weeks I have a ton of work, I spend too much time here.  The quiet weeks, not enough.  Or at least that is how it feels.

I've never thought it was as cliquey here as other boards I've frequented.  Though I didn't realize there were people doing a real time chat thing during the day too...

Total time logged in: 11 days, 18 hours and 7 minutes. Roll Eyes

I have lists and crap, and that signifigantly adds to my time here.

Oh, and helping Calvin with all of his tech issues. I think it would save time if someone were just to chop his fingers off.

I voted "too much", just because I tend to post here way to often when I should be working (like right now).

I don't find GT to be cliquey...cliquish...clique-like...or whatever at all, which is one of the reasons I enjoy it so much.

Calvin: 26d 18h 1m
Gellar: 26d 7h 34m
ATB:  9d 22h 24m

Calvin has you beat by less than 11 hrs. And you beat me by 17 hours.

17 days. Well, more specifically 16 days and 9 hours. Or 393 hours.

That's because it's always up at work.  What else do you think I'm doing there?

The few things that bug me about GT:

  • PeteRocks novel length posts. I recommend an Executive Summary.
  • Devils worship of Martin Brodeur.
  • Lockdowns overuse of the popcorn smiley.
  • Mytocles lifelong obsession with FFXI.

This seems to really interfere with her duties here as a poster.  That 21:1 male:female ratio isn't going to fix itself.

I only regret that i spend the time here that i do without posting.  Being a 2 game player (WoW and right now the Freespace 2 SCP with mods), I don't have a lot to comment on.  So, I relegate myself to off-topic.  I know a few folks in RL here, notably Ron.  I even worked for him for a short period of time.  I'm not a good journalist.  If it was an opinion article and I could rant, that would be different.  People do that already in their blogs, so who am I?  Just another gamer with an opinion.  I can segue into anything.  Damn I need to get some sleep.
