Hey I just noticed that our good buddy Hacsev is on the frontpage for this work.

Congrats to him and write a review, since it's being torn apart for being FP'ed.

His voice just isn't masculine enough. XD

Though he does have enough testosterone to drive one of the fastest cars available :P

Fair enough. If you're not into the sport, there's no real drive to keep watching, though you might keep tabs, by looking at results and watching highlights of the big crashes, for example.
Heh, sometimes I watch the start of a race and hope for a big crash. ^^
Luckily the cars are a lot safer than they where some years ago, so even if there's a huge crash almost nobody gets hurt in it.

With the way that some of my more simple friends talk, the best way to watch a race is to watch the first lap or two, so we can see the start and the replays, followed by the finish. I prefer to watch the tactical exchanges, plus if I didn't, I would have missed the Vettel / Webber crash, which I believe was the route of this rambling conversation ;)

Of course, it was getting crazy with all the regulars running around with gold aura. If icon mods didn't become goldless, then some parts of the forums may as well be public mod lounges. :P Well, the icon mod crew is close enough.

Also, I COULD have had gold aura for a few hours but Tom Fulp made a slight mistake on his end and instead of being recruited on Friday, I had to wait until he had time to check his emails. On the bright side, at least I never had gold aura to begin with as if I found out I was with one but didn't witness it, that would have been a tease.

Still, hope all the icon making / modding goes well. GRATZ ;)

Thank you. It's been really interesting so far and I intend to keep up the good work.

Thank you Auz!

I really wish I could vote for more people in the best poster and most underrated categories.

Same, I always have several people for these categories. If I was able to nominate more than one for Most Underrated, you and Haggard would have been mentioned by me without hesitation. As for Best Poster, Coop would have been mentioned. I apologise to Coop for not nominating him for Best Poster but Best Mod and Master Creator are still good, right?

Congrats dude! Pity you can ban anybody

It's a pity I can ban people? I wasn't aware icon modding involved banning users. :P

but it's a nice foot in the door, so to speak.

True that.

Jokes on you reverend!
Yeah, instead of someone sort of worthy like yourself, there is tons of nominations for people who are not underrated in the slightest.

But I'm no longer worthy.

You're having sex with someone with the exact same genes as you so I'd consider it as sick and wrong. It could be worse, though. What if it was having sex with a female counterpart?
I remember once that there was a thread, since deleted, about dragons having sex with a car. Not in a car but with it. I think that is worse as you can get. :P

When there's a thread about dragons, I will NEVER forget about it and I remember that thread very well. FBIpolux has made some awesome threads about dragons which are definitely worth reading!

But Queen's albums aren't rare.
Quite so. But there are albums that may be considered rare, but I guess not many people care for them as many albums get a re-release these days and most people (myself included) are just happy when they can listen to the songs. They don't care if it is an original release or not.

If by original, you mean the original track listing without any bonus tracks, then for Queen's album, I don't really mind if I get bonus tracks or not. Sometimes bonus tracks can ruin the feel of the album, even if they're usually placed right after the album closer.

It's pretty good. I'm finding myself liking it more and more each time I listen to it. I can't wait to hear the whole album. Hopefully When the Wild Wind Blows will be a really good song considering its track length. It's their first 10+ minute track since Sign of the Cross in The X Factor so I have high hopes for it.

By original I meant the copies that where first released. For example like Metallica's "Garage Days Re-Revisited". All the tracks are included on the "Garage Inc." so I'm fine with that. But there may be some people out there who'd like to get a hand on a copy of "Garage Days" even though it's a collectors item and you'd have to pay way over 500$ (at least that's the last price I heard of) to get one.

Happens me constantly, for no reason at all I'd get a craving to play some old game for no good reason :S
It's funny because there are those out there who think once they've played a game, they're done with it for good, even if they happened to have enjoyed it a lot. I'd say it's the real gamers who look back at old games and play them again.

Suppose that's true, I mean even if it's just for the sake of nostalgia there's some games I'll always go back and play for a bit.

Speaking of which, I think you must resign yourself to getting Underrated nominations, as someone who contributes as much as you but isn't well known outside Wi/Ht and C&C is bound to be picked, like it or not :P
That'll make me happy, actually. A third time will be very silly.

Would be sort of funny if you became like the perennial underrated winner year in year out.

Also, User of the Day, nice surprise, although I admit I didn't notice till sixflab sent me a PM.
Big congrats on that! I'm still waiting to be UOTD.

Thanks, I mean it is bound to happen at some point or another, still nice when it does though.

That category is probably the hardest for anyone to decide since it's so relative to how people perceive one another. One person might feel they are underrated compared to what they perceive while another don't see them as underrated.

The dude is right; we need more dragons and dragon related stories on this forum.

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them.

I believe that I actually own a copy of said book... or something very similar. Still, if it's the one I'm thinking of, it's a smashing read.

I think it's quite a famous book, although I thought the wikipedia article stated it wasn't very successful in America. Anyway, fun book indeed. I gotta dig it back up again someday :p

Indeed. I had a lot of difficulty picking names this year as I've already said several times.

I wanted to vote Haggard, reverend and Sir-Nuts for most underrated. But I thought Haggard and reverend were already mentioned here and there, so I went for Sir-Nuts because he deserves some credit as well imo.

For best poster I had you, Coop, Scarab and gfoxcook in mind. I never voted for Scarab before, so I went for him this time.

Anyway, I do wish you could just drop a few catagories and have extra votes in others. Like I personally couldn't give a shit about Never Logs Off or Best Artist. Best Artist doesn't have much to do with the BBS anyway if you ask me, unless it goes to some audio/art/writing forum reg (which it probably doesn't).

Either that or at least have two or three votes per category, kinda like we do in the wi/ht? forum.

Always good to have a bit of length to the tracks. Particularly if they've got a steady beat. I think Hallowed be thy Name is a pretty good tune for length and consistent beat. I'll try lifting to it in a moment or two.

3/4 way to 100k. How does it feel?
Good. It'll feel weird when I get to my Saves : Blams ratio of 2:1

And yes, the Vettel/Webber was the start of this conversation. ^^

Look at the report and scan read for the words "crash", "carnage", "indecision", "suicidal" and the like. That should be the clues to the crashes. If there are any, then watch the video and laugh.

It might be a better indicator when he faces a competitor, but still a very good start to his career. He's got more wins than 4 Washington starters and as many wins as one starter, through 8 starts. I wonder if he'll be challenging Justin Heyward for Rookie of the Year? On this showing, yes he will.

I believe that I actually own a copy of said book... or something very similar. Still, if it's the one I'm thinking of, it's a smashing read.
I think it's quite a famous book, although I thought the wikipedia article stated it wasn't very successful in America. Anyway, fun book indeed. I gotta dig it back up again someday :p

Yes, because when Americans do want to read, they don't want to read about how stupid they are. There are also groups that have an aversion to the name Darwin, because Evolution is a thoery, not a fact. If only they knew the meaning of the word "theory" :P

For best poster I had you, Coop, Scarab and gfoxcook in mind. I never voted for Scarab before, so I went for him this time.

To be frank, I really don't mind over which awards I'm nominated for. The very fact that I'm considered is an honour enough.

Maybe not on the day of the release, but very soon after it, I guess.

Good enough, I suppose. Man, is this the only argument we're having right now?

If by original, you mean the original track listing without any bonus tracks, then for Queen's album, I don't really mind if I get bonus tracks or not. Sometimes bonus tracks can ruin the feel of the album, even if they're usually placed right after the album closer.
By original I meant the copies that where first released. For example like Metallica's "Garage Days Re-Revisited". All the tracks are included on the "Garage Inc." so I'm fine with that. But there may be some people out there who'd like to get a hand on a copy of "Garage Days" even though it's a collectors item and you'd have to pay way over 500$ (at least that's the last price I heard of) to get one.

Oh yes, the original Garage Days. Now I know what you're talking about. After reading this post, I'm actually curious about Metallica's Garage Inc. now. I guess I should get it at some point but I'll leave it for a 2 for £10 deal at HMV.

Suppose that's true, I mean even if it's just for the sake of nostalgia there's some games I'll always go back and play for a bit.

Yep, and I have many to play time and time again. Final Fantasy VII, Oddworld, Crash Bandicoot, Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid and Tomb Raider. That just shows how much I love the PS1 era.

That'll make me happy, actually. A third time will be very silly.
Would be sort of funny if you became like the perennial underrated winner year in year out.

I already made fun of that joke by saying the Most Underrated award should be called the Bahamut award.

Big congrats on that! I'm still waiting to be UOTD.
Thanks, I mean it is bound to happen at some point or another, still nice when it does though.

Indeed it is and I sure hope I'll get it sometime before I don't have any time for this site. Then again, I've been lucky enough to be UOTD twice on my main account on NG Log.

Of course you did. Shame you have no flashes for me to moderate. :P

But I'm no longer worthy.
That category is probably the hardest for anyone to decide since it's so relative to how people perceive one another. One person might feel they are underrated compared to what they perceive while another don't see them as underrated.

It was actually an easy choice for me. Sure, I still wanted to nominate Haggard and Auz but I went for someone who's not even a Wi/Ht?'er.

When there's a thread about dragons, I will NEVER forget about it and I remember that thread very well. FBIpolux has made some awesome threads about dragons which are definitely worth reading!
The dude is right; we need more dragons and dragon related stories on this forum.

I couldn't agree more. MORE DRAGON STORIES!

Always good to have a bit of length to the tracks. Particularly if they've got a steady beat. I think Hallowed be thy Name is a pretty good tune for length and consistent beat. I'll try lifting to it in a moment or two.

When talking about Maiden's epics, do not forget The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. I'm sure that song was a huge inspiration on Helloween's epics.

Yeah, Americans are much more religious than most Europeans, aren't they?

And more stupid... yeah. Maybe they're not that much more stupid than the average European, but as opposed to us they always seem to go berserk when people mention their 'stupidity' :p I guess they're simply much more patriotic than we are, thus they can't take criticism that well.

Yeah I heard some complaints about no innovations this year. It seemed to me like Twilight just stole the opportunity to make the nominations topic when EJR made the discussion topic a few minutes earlier.

I don't know if that was as planned by EJR. I didn't see him complaining about it, but it looked odd to me.

Anyway I agree with a separate election for other forums. Or at least the Best Artist election should be held in the audio, art and writing forums.

10,000 EXP and Level 31. Not so interesting. Bahamut told me I have a single stat for 10k now and if I get another, I'll be on his Pentalist updates but the chances of myself being there is little to none.

One start and you already want rookie of the year? I'm not sure if he is going to be put fully in the rotation for the entire year. As they are, they are still a third place team and it would be waste to wear him down now before the Nats get come other talent, especially in the rotation.

Hm, there seems to be a problem at NG Logs today. I can't log my stats and it seems other people are experiencing this as well... last log is from 12:12 pm NG Logs time (now it is 13:57 at NG Logs).

Garage Inc. is pretty nice. Sure, it's only a cover album but it's really worth it. Especially the Misfits covers. I like Metallicas version of "Die, Die my darling" even better than the original song.
