  1. Not a matter of grammar, but that's a fair point. I didn't notice the italics when I was processing this post.
  2. We are always dying. To ask the question or to infer it as a current circumstance is tantamount to redundancy. The key thing to remember is that some aspects of the community die faster than others, which leaves us with the pieces to construct something new. Such courses of development have been commonplace within GFL since its inception in 2011. I suppose even embers from ashes are more than enough to birth fires.
  3. The core team is finalised once again. A sub spot is open. EDIT: Spots are now closed.
  4. Indeed. The 16th one with a hole in it is Lincoln. The other two presidents that were assassinated (Garfield and McKinley) don't seem to bear similar representations.
  5. Many assets for props in GMod are taken from Counter-Strike: Source. The most common way to circumvent this problem is to buy CS:S on Steam so that GMod can detect it and mount its assets, although this isn't the only method. Google is your friend if you wish to acquire the textures without owning a copy of CS:S.
  6. I don't see why girls should intrude in the Boy Scouts, nor why boys should intrude in the Girl Scouts. There are already mixed gender Scouting troops if that's what you want to join.
  7. We had to remove PaxPlay from the core team since he cannot participate with the updated event time. We need someone who doesn't mind playing a lot of Lúcio.
  8. That's because we don't have a team of that kind for LoL. At present, our only team for that is for CS:GO. Making these kinds of teams isn't as simple as cobbling together five random people. There's a lot of consideration that has to go behind it.
  9. The team is now finalised. Look forward to watching us play in the tournament.
  10. We need a DPS & tank flex player to complete the core team. We also need two substitutes should one of the core players be unavailable. Please PM me if you are interested. EDIT: The core team is complete. We only require substitutes now.
  11. That's what I'm hoping as well. We only need one more player for the core team, as well as two substitutes.
  12. I don't celebrate Christian holidays, but I hope everyone that does has a good time. As good of a time you can have with Valentine's Day, anyway. To those that are lamenting that they are alone, I raise my mug to you today.
  13. Fairly clear that this person was just trying to provoke a response from the admins. Locked.
  14. Please PM me if you want a place on the team. I am currently looking for a good off-tank (Roadhog/Zarya) and a Lúcio player that responds well to team coordination. Providing extra details such as your current SR is also welcome.
  15. So a Hanzo main stopped me from hitting Top 500 today. Colour me surprised. /s

  16. I'll be GFL's team captain, as well as the main tank. Dano will be the main support and shot caller. We intend to build our roster based on skill rating and main roles to round out the team.
  17. Why do Trump supporters overlook his cognitive dissonance? Given that he is prone to giving two contradictory opinions in the span of ten seconds, I find it hard to believe that he is intelligent. "#NotMyPresident" and the recent delicious irony in swaths of Trump supporters regretting voting for him. It's one thing to oppose him (which I do), but it's another thing entirely to bawl like a baby because of it.
  18. Not surprised. The swaths of the regressive left and regretful Trump voters need to stop crying. Destruction of healthcare plans, agency gag orders, and national/religious vetting were all things that Trump said he'd do. No use crying over them now since this is what Americans apparently want.
  19. Our Crunchyroll group still exists? Damn. Proxgirl is @Bae.
  20. Sorry if any of you fellows are being spammed with notifications regarding the member map; I've been adjusting some settings in an effort to refine it.

  22. Given that a republic is a framework of democracy (whilst a framework of democracy is not automatically a republic), those who interchangeably use the two terms when referring to the USA are not entirely incorrect. It's nice to see you correct people on clips and magazines, though.
  23. I am honest in my admission that I favour prose over poetry, although that won't stop me from trying my hand. Here is a poem about the perfect imperfection of humans. Imperfectia There is an old saying that holds merit, In that humans are akin to clockwork. Bound to the limitations of what we inherit, Yet capable of spurring that which is yonder. Machines without halt, art without fault. Why is that, I wonder? We are speaking of something complex. Intricate, no doubt to a great vice, For if a piece of the mind falls under a hex, Lunacy becomes the bedfellow of wit. War without pause, spite without cause. Are we truly so unfit? Ah, perhaps such an account is dishonest. After all, one may be the disgraced tyrant, Whilst another opts to be the exalted pianist. The mistress of anathema breeds many a woe: Slaves without charity, tenets without verity. Is this all we have to show? Our shared future is neither bright nor dark, So please, free yourself from worry. Your only concern in this life is that creative spark, Knowing that your path is no longer a mystery. Songs without lapse, life without maps. A species to rouse the envy of history.
  24. Before I die, I would like to catch a lawless killer in the act and promptly bring them to justice. Ah, but it's too bad that I don't know anyone unsettlingly whacked enough to do it.
