Oh cool! This next thread is actually still around today! The Random Conversation Thread!
Started by Faw because he wanted a place to rant. It seems that quite a few threads throughout our history have been created for similar reasons.
What are the focuses of poor Fawriel's grievances, you may ask? Well, he's upset because Tales Of Symphonia is, like, one of his favorite games, but after reading up on it, he learned that the game is full of cliches! And well, the sentiment had been stirred up even more after someone dared to call the game Grandia a Cliché Storm! The scandal....
Following this post is Tangent128, with a completely different subject about cars with keypad locks, and the numbers of buttons on them. Personally, I have never seen a car with a keypad lock. It's amazing how much times have changed in the past 2 years, ain't it? We use keys now and everything.
Our very own Meta4 helpfully replies to both Tangent and Fawriel.
Skip a few posts where nothing of note happens, and William Wide Web makes me lol.
Moving on, and OMG THREAD IS FULL OF WALLS OF TEXT!
I've mentioned before to Tzetze, but it seems that the early tropers were a lot more longwinded than the current set, and those still remaining from those days of old seem to have shortened their attention span.
So, these were the days before Contributor pages, huh?
Moving on again, there is further discussion of Tropes Are Not Bad.
Then Brickman drops the bomb with this post. I didn't see anything else in the thread about what he's referencing, so I imagine a mod heeded his request. Hmmm.... The Plot Thickens.
Skimming to the bottom of the page, and oh hey, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TANGENT128!!!!
End of page one. Page two will be posted eventually.
