Civil War

SPIDER MAN!!!     The hype is getting too much to bear.

That moment

when you realize that Ant-Man was actually not played by Ben Affleck but by Paul Rudd.   I could have sworn.

Video Games in 2016

We're not hardcore gamers (especially me), but there's three games we're really looking forward to in 2016:   First up is Manifold Garden. If you've already played Antichamber, then Manifold Garden may look familiar to you, though it seems to take the mind-breaking physics and optics even a step further. Of course, the fact that I have studied mathematics probably helps but I was already a huge fan of Antichamber (in fact, it's probably my favourite video game to date) and this one looks equally

Sort of a Manifest Maybe

So thanks to fantastic person @Obsessionist it turns out we've got a six-month Premier Membership now. And now that we've got it, I guess the logical first step is to write a blog entry.   You probably don't but perhaps you've been wondering where we've been lately. You may have noticed that we aren't as active as we used to be. I still come around every day and check out the news, post a news story every now and then (though probably not as often as I should ) and browse the forums. The truth

Fad

Since my AMA entry was one of the first made during anniversary week (at least as far I can tell), I'll pretend I was involved in starting this fad.   -Gata

Ask Me Anything

Half of the anniversary week is over so I'm giving you the chance to ask me whatever you want because why not? After all, it's not every day that you can post blog entries (unless you have lifetime Premier Membership). So yeah, let those questions roll in.   -Gata

Six Years on the Staff

I kinda forgot that yesterday was my six-year anniversary of being on the staff, of which more than five were on the Forum Mentor team. Not gonna lie to you, that was quite awful in the end. Not only was I a bit tired of doing the same staff job for five years, it was mostly that there was basically nothing left to do because of the decreased activity and the end of New Members needing ten posts approved before gaining full member privileges. So I was quite glad when Black Six offered me a job a

Rumors

I have noticed a funny phenomenon. When there is a rumor you hold likely, but still have doubts about, it happens that as time passes, you become more and more sure that it's actually true, while in fact during that time period nothing has happened that would alter the situation. Same happens when you hold it unlikely, where you'll become more and more convinced that it's not true.   Unless I'm the only one who has experienced this and I'm kind of a strange person?   -Gata

WEEE!

Hey, so, looks like I got Premier perks again! It's been some time. Maybe we should get Premier Membership...   So, anyway, I'm not sure what to write yet. I'm writing an exam in Discrete Mathematics tomorrow and another one in Computer Science on Tuesday. I guess I should study for those now instead of writing these lines. Anyway, let's see if anyone actually reads this. Let's make this an "Ask me anything" session! If I get enough comments in my blog entries during this week I may actually c

So long, dear blog!

Thought I'd write some sort of goodbye entry before the Premier perks are gone again. We are thinking of buying Premier Membership anyway, but there will be some time without Premier perks anyway. So thanks to everyone who visited my blog and commented. Hopefully I'll be able to blog again soon!   -Gata

New skin

Yeah, this is just a plain boring entry about the new skin, but I have to do it. In case you haven't realized yet, this is what I was talking about when saying there would soon be changes reminding us of our heritage. Do you like it? I do and I hope you do, too. Kudos to Than and WW for most of the work!   -Gata

Linkin Park

Yep, I thought now that we can blog we should make it worth it.   Anyway, we've got both Hybrid Theory and Living Things by Linkin Park today. We already had Meteora before and plan to get the remaining two soon. In concrast, I think I like Living Things more than Hybrid Theory, but maybe it's just because it suits my mood better. I've just listened to My December from HT and it's surprisingly good, though. But seriously, LT is fantastic. I think my favourite ones are Lost in the Echo, I'll Be

Four years

So four years ago the Forum Mentor group was introduced and I was promoted to the staff. Four years later, I'm still a Forum Mentor and the only one of the original left still in that position.   I can't believe I've been a staff member for longer than I was a normal member. I couldn't really imagine it another way anymore. And there is really a lot I owe to my promotion, in terms of experiences, lessons and maturing. When looking back at when I was promoted, I realize I was actually still a kid

Mark Community Read

Okay, scrap that last entry of mine. I do know what to blog and rant about now. That stupid "Mark Community Read" link I find completely useless and I've clicked today for the second time in three days. >.< Then again, maybe I shouldn't be so trigger-happy with my mouse button. Whatever. At least it wasn't as bad this time as three days ago.   I do hope I won't find too many things to rant about, though.   -Gata

Blogging

You know that feeling when you have a blog and want to blog about anything, but simply don't know what to blog about? I hate it.   Well, I could always blog about how I slept badly tonight and how I woke up with my right ear totally deaf and how it's so annoying and how it's much better now, but I doubt that's even interesting.   Yeah, I'll eventually get the hang of bloggging.   -Gata

Walking through the gate

So non-Premier staff finally got Premier perks again after the past two years where we didn't, so I thought it would be time to start blogging! An actual blog this time, not the weird thing we had before, if you still remember. Anyway, we are thinking of buying Premier Membership, but for now, we'll just make use of this week of free Premier perks and see afterwards. I've been wanting to get a blog for a time, so I'm glad we finally got the chance to try!   Well, I'm sure I'll write some mean
