Title: Group hug!
Post by: Ben X on 10 Oct 2018, 18:20
Quote from: Mandle
/me initiates a group hug.

This is a forum mostly for fledgling amateur game designers who either wish to dabble for fun or to test their wings to go on to bigger things.

Most who do the latter have already left but some still hang around as community members.

The modding of this forum is probably the most level-headed I have ever seen in a casual online forum, and I've been on community boards since 1999 when I first got the internet. I've never seen anyone actually banned here but on every other forum I've been on bans were just the norm. You saw at least one or two every week, permanent or not.

Of course not everyone can resist a snipe now and then, but we are all adults and does it really harm us when one is taken at us as long as it's not too personal or deliberately meant as bullying?

/me closes the group hug

(You don't want those things going on until someone coughs)

I didn't want to bump that other thread, but I liked Mandle's idea of a group hug!

I'm all for healthy criticism of the forums or politely calling people out if they step over a line, but there's some poisonous negativity getting spewed at the moment so I don't think a nice positive thread will hurt any.

Thanks and hugs to everyone on here who is friendly and supportive and fun. Feel free to share some positivity and get in on the hug!

/me retroactively gets in on the group hug

Oh no, what have I done?

I feel like the guy at the party that started the conga-line but 20 minutes later his legs are tired...

Meh, hasn't been 20 minutes yet for me so:

/me DOES MASSIVE HUGGLES!!!

I looove this chaotic group hug - (http://fs5.directupload.net/images/user/170812/msx6coge.gif)
The way you did it is representing our AGS-family in a more realistic way than it could be done by taking a real photo.  (http://fs5.directupload.net/images/user/170812/52fa45jh.gif)
At least most of us are looking like they have fun (with whatever they are doing). (laugh)

Even watching my avatar gives the expression like it's being strangled. With the arms torn up in the air and the tongue already hanging out (that one red leaf at the mouth looks like it) it doesn't seem to last very long until I'll have to leave the group. Nonetheless I'll take part, spreading the love up to my last breath  ;)

You know what this reminds me of? The village in Asterix fighting with each other. Let's be honest, that's just their way of hugging. :-*

A group hug can expand to fit as many people as required, that's the beauty of them!

You must have changed something in your profile settings, which causes the link to the image to disappear.
