Sages Chat

I figure this'll be the better place to put this. =P If you don't give a crap about sages_of_chaos run away now.

Yeah, I suck. Rules and regulations are lax, as well as leadership. I frankly can't be there as often as I'd like, due to time, and how much one person can handle. Due to the RPing nature of the room, I'm also not really sure who to offer further reigns to, for when I'm not around.

Anywho, looks like I picked the wrong night to not be there AND not have GMail open (A major rarity indeed.) Seems I missed something.

First off, #SageSanctuary is a channel for people from an RP community (or two) to hang out on. RP is going to happen. I welcome RP. That being said, there are various types of RP. Some will be cool with it, others won't. If you don't like something going on in the channel, several options are available to you.


  • Leave for a bit until it's more to your liking. Preferably without any snarky comments.

  • Use /ignore. Yeah, you'll miss stuff...but if you'd rather not see it anyways, this may be the best option.

  • Ask *politely* if they could take the RP to another place, be it msges, or another room. With the usual majority rules, of course.</il>


I was unawares of ANYONE leaving permanently based on some of the RPs going on in there. I don't want this. Especially since current folks involve in this are some of my closest friends. I'd rather some amicable solution that everyone can agree on be reached, but if not, I will start booting people for complaining about the RP. =P

Political Correctness

So...the new Marvel Handbooks are riddled with errors. Was discussing this tonight with stacyx, and remembered the Deluxe Editions had frequent corrections from readers. Would there be a place for such a thing on the new editions?

And if not, does it matter with the internet? ;)

Thoughts, suggestions?

Birth Out-of-Control

Sisters give birth at 12, 14, 16

*sigh*

But this is brill, truly:

Jemma was first to give birth, to T-Jay in February last year, and weeks later Jade and Natasha discovered they were pregnant.

Natasha had daughter Amani in November and Jade followed with Lita in December. The younger sisters are still at school.

Mrs Atkins told the Sunday Mercury: "I don't care what people say about me. I blame the schools - sex education for young girls should be better."

The Return of the Stupidity

TWO Star Wars fans suffered horrific burns in a mock battle with home-made lightsabers filled with PETROL.

Shelley Mandiville, 17, and Mark Webb, 20, made the weapons with fluorescent light tubes. They filled them with fuel and washing-up liquid to act out a Jedi Knight fight scene from new movie Revenge Of The Sith. They lit the liquid to illuminate the makeshift toys. But it exploded — covering them both in the burning mixture.

Firefighters discovered Shelly and Mark with serious burns after being called to woodland near Hemel Hempstead, Herts, on Sunday. Police were studying a video camera found at the scene. It was thought that a third person was taping the “duel” — who fled in terror when the disaster happened.

A local who visited the scene said: “You could see two fluorescent light tubes on the ground next to a badly burned area of ground. “Police said the plan was probably to film what happened and submit it to one of these Jackass-style TV shows or put it on the internet.” Police were waiting to interview Shelley and Mark, who were both in a critical condition in hospital last night.

Stoned

From Greg Weisman's forum,

WHAT WE KNOW
I've been authorized by Buena Vista Home Entertainment to confirm that there will indeed be another release of episodes from Gargoyles on DVD.

Obviously, those episodes will come from the second season... and I have been assured that in any case the episodes will be released in the correct order.

They are planning on involving me again.

WHAT WE DON'T KNOW
We don't know how may releases there are going to be to cover the second season.
We don't know how many discs. We don't know how many episodes per disc.
We don't know what the extras are going to be.
We don't know any release dates.

As I learn more, I'll keep you posted.

WHAT I'M HOPING FOR
My preference would be that they break up the 2nd Season into three separate releases.

The first release would include 23 episodes, running from "Leader of the Pack" through "Avalon, Part Three".

The second release would include 26 episodes, running from "Shadows of the Past" through "The Reckoning".

The third release would include 3 episodes, running from "Hunter's Moon, Part One" through "Hunter's Moon, Part Three".

I am not even vaguely implying that this is there plan. I don't know what they are planning. I'm simply expressing my personal preference, as many of you have done in the Station 8 Comment Room.

I will, of course, take whatever I can get.
