I'm glad buying that super meat boy pamphlet/comic book went to a good cause. I would advertise his games on facebook or something but I have no friends.

haha

I bought the dad plushie and mask, so I'm all set for a halloween costume oh yeah.

I think I might also write something for the writing contest this month if I can get a good idea. It will be my first entry to one so I'm nervous I might fuck upa dn break a rule or right something that is just god awful.


I'm an instigator

...

And I just got my scouts back from the DD incident :/

Ah well..

Back to the drawing board.

Heres a suggestion though.

Would it be possible to send out a PM to everyone who is currently scouted, to those who were previously scouted? Meaning that if those who were scouted had no problem with being scouted by the user who scouted them, they can remain scouted if they choose, or decide not to?

If that makes any sense.

Cool, I think I might buy Super Meat Boy for Wiiware, it will probably be a hit there, considering so many people have a Wii, thus more people playing it.

Insert Castle Crashers to Wii port request here.

Are you MAN enough to click this?!

Or he could be put on a long waiting list with health care rationings.

Speaking of the Halloween contest, I got Nogfish to make me a song for my Halloween video that isn't in the audio portal.

Is that cool?

I'd love to see some of the punkoween stories converted into movies for this halloween. That'd be pretty sweet. I'm working on a dieselpunk horror for the comp.

If this means, adding art reviews to your account page, to see if you've gotten new ones or not, and able to reply effeciently, then I aggree.

:D

'Cuz flipping through each picture to find a new review gets a little tedious... :< (Especially, when you do reply to a review, and click "next/previous picture", the option to click "next/previous picture" is gone after that.)

I meant like on your user page when you click reviews, it has the flash you've reviewed and the audio you've reviewed but no art reviews. :o but you idea is cool too :)

I feel for Edmund, I also don't have med insurance and am in some deep ass debt because of it. I truly would help, but I'm afraid I'm in the same boat.

I've been thinking for the past few days about submitting into the art portal, but I've been really unsure of myself and have been thinking negatively about how my stuff probably wouldn't get scouted and what not. If I did decide to submit stuff would it make a difference if I did it before the change or after?

All of your art will remain, but you will no longer be scouted. We are starting from scratch with a new foundation, and scout invites now require your confirmation.

This means you may get scout invites via PM from multiple people, and you can CHOOSE who you want to be your scout, rather than have no control over who scouts you.

We're keeping a back-up of the old tree but expect that within a week, the Art Portal will be close to normal and better than ever.

If you don't wish to be scouted, don't check the box to showcase your art in the Art Portal. It will remain solely on your page and the option to be scouted will not be available.

Nice, this looks really promising. Because I think that if you had no control over who scouts you, then you get unscouted highly unexpectedly, it just wasn't fair. But now, WE HAVETH A CHOICE!! WHEEEEEE!!!!!
