Been playing through F2 again and after helping a bunch of scruffy ruffians kill a spammer, committing rat regicide and getting thrown out of Vault City, I reached the Enclave Oil Rig.

I can't believe the stuff you have to do to get anywhere, assassinating the President of the United States is the easy part of it and once you've dealt with that, you have to take on Frank Horrigan and his merry band of gun turrets. :S

Looks like it's back to grinding for me. T.T

We need a Caesar to cross the irradiated Rubicon and  hoard all the tangerines and get support for their leadership. Who needs qualifications these days?

He who controls the tangerines controls the village? Bastardized Dune quote?

I think you mean booze, he who controls the booze controls the village. :P

We should appoint a leader, someone to blame when things inevitably go tits up.

Since I'm the admin with the longest tenure, I guess it falls to me...to appoint Blue Cross for the job.

If for any reason he is unable to fulfill his duty as scapegoat, Swash will be the backup. Never mind the fact that Swash last posted four years ago.

(I could rescind Swash's admin privileges, but that would involve work. Less actual work than making this post did, admittedly, but it would be useful work, which instantly means I should't do it. Because if I actually do something useful it'll raise people's expectations and then I'll feel compelled to meet and or exceed them which will just make them expect even more and the cycle will never stop. And eventually people will be disappointed by my not living up to those expectations. So I do nothing because I care about all of your mental well being.)

Pipboy 2000 would have my back on this if he were around.

(I think this post has now covered all admins that haven't posted in the thread. Solwyn's just staff, so his only mention is this footnote.)

We could always start a MySpace....
That is actually a good idea. Hook me up on ICQ or send me a fax, and I'd like to help!

Along that vein... Does the unwashed village have an official leader or membership? I mean - who pays the bills around here??

We are anarcho-syndicalist commune - we elect leaders from within the community every time a non-government, non-coorporation buys a barge.

I pay for the hosting. It's part of an elaborate money laundering / pyramid scheme. For legal reason, you are now officially the owner and CEO of several companies headquartered in Uruguay.

Other than that, I upgrade this board every time we are attacked by spambots and/or during the small windows of time during the hunting season when I'm not drunk or participating in high-stakes spelling bees in Venezuela.

I check the forum regularly, but as you may have noticed, there is not much activity. Pure nostalgia compels me to keep it alive. It's been nearly 18 years since I joined, and I have a lot of treasured memories.

I still have a dream of reviving the community some day. My best plan so far has been to lure people in with bees.

If we had a leader we'd have forgotten who it was already, well within five minutes of deciding  who said leader was.

Family, work and life generally tends to make the bungee cord excessively slack but it does still exert a bit of a pull; we get a good number of old members popping in every so often but there isn't really enough activity to keep people here. The UV is on my list of sites I check every few days but I can go weeks.
