CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

This is it! The place for staff to chat and work on their projects and discuss them. This will be the base of operations, and following this post will be the list of current 'employees'.

 


When I am away, I will expect my manager Seto and deputy manager Kingler1140 to continue it and ensure everything runs smoothly.  If you are not Staff, then I ask you to either turn away now, or go and sign up to be part of our team! The links are below.


'The CYS Weekly' was an old project of mine that I set up almost two years ago. I was very inexperienced and quite immature. It was a small team that worked on it, and eventually it died out at the fault of several causes. 

After it died, many more similar projects popped up, but they eventually died off as well. The CYS Weekly was CYS's first paper, and it inspired a few more to come after it. Now, I am restarting the project, in hopes of having this back up, and having fun writing it.

hehehe now I can steal your secrets for my newspaper

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Yeah, it's a public forum. 'Staff only!' is unenforceable and will be about as effective as demanding nice comments only on a story.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

I think it's more or less a courtesy tag. Like those signs people hang up for trick-or-treaters which say, "Please take only one. Thank you. :)"

Wooo! I can finally start lounging around and complain about how our rival paper is being a sell-out!

Just kidding. I can't wait for my first assignment though. smiley

Yay! Finally! :D

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Man, that rival paper The Daily Choose is such a freakin' sell-out. wink

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

The Daily Choose?
Charaxes, now I'm imagining a Choose Your Own Newspaper...xD

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Extra Extra! Read all about it! Did the mayor actually commission a statue of the town hero to be erected over the ruins of an abandoned Macky's? If he did, read the article about it on page 2. If he didn't, read the article on page 4.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

I flip to page two.

 

Did the statue of the hero actually fall on the actual hero during the unveiling of said statue after it was done?
 

If it did, flip to page 5. If not, flip to page 12.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

God, we're such a factual and reliable source.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

XD That we are. 100% factual and reliable ever since 1850.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Of course. That was when CYS was founded, after all!

Unless it wasn't, in which case, turn back to page 8.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Turns to page 8

 

If you believe this newspaper, Choose Your Newspaper, is 100% made up, flip to page 666. If not, continue to the next page, 10.

What do you mean there is no page 666?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

There are no death pages. You just have to keep looping until you find something loosely resembling a factual pat of events!

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

You will be working with Eshpoyeofdoom. If he sees fit, as Zag has already answered him. Check with them.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Yeah.....this is a public forum, okay?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

This is ludicrous!

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

That is your opinion, and whatever you think is fine. I take no offense.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Okay, but, shouldn't we use pm for this? Or at least for the articles themselves?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

The articles, yes, will be PM, but discussion and organization of everything will be mainly here, as well as just plain chatting.

 Here people will be able to discuss their projects and ideas with not just the editor or their partner, but other staff, as to have an easy way to openly discuss things, and as before, it's also a place to talk and hang out with other staff.

 If it seems needed, then I will ask a mod to take this down, but for now I'll see how this goes.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Well it's good there's a place for organizing, now I suppose it's time for those running things to start organizing, giving people their assignments and getting things into an organized routine? :) Otherwise this place will get filled with whatever most Lounge Threads with hundreds of posts usually get filled up with :)

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Feel free to fill me in on my assignment as soon as you are able.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

You may choose whichever game you want. I don't have any specific game in mind, so go ahead. Just make sure to tell me so I can check if anyone else took it, and maybe try a story-game other than one that's featured in its category.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Geez... that took some time. I almost thought the whole thing died.

 

Well anyways, I'm a writer and I need an interviewer as a 'partner'. So yah.

You should probably tag @Seto 'cause he's manager.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Anyone you think is interesting c: 

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

And is 5 questions the minimum or the maximum?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

5 questions is the minimum. If you cant ask someone at least five interesting questions, that get five interesting answers...well, you should probably find someone else, don't you think? :P 

Also, you can ask more than the maximum of questions. You can only submit 10 questions however, if you kind of get what I'm saying. Little tired right now ^^;

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Okay, thanks for clearing that up.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Since we don't have assignments yet, I was thinking about writing an article compiling the coolest female protagonists we have on this website. Thoughts?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

That sounds like a good idea.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

I'm currently writing an article about how to create suspense.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Would you like to join as a writer? Fine by me

@Seto @jaystarthecat @Kingler1140

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

The first paragraph of the Wolves II is the most suspenseful thing I ever read. I'm really looking forward to this!

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Wow, Mizal, I can't handle your savagery! Cunt... only joking!

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Maybe it would be a good idea to give out the assignments on here every Monday with everyone having to submit by Friday to publish on Saturday, that way if there are any things that people don't submit then the editors have a day to get someone else to write it? Like the interviewers/writers have a set person to interview, the story game reviewers have a set number of story games to review, the comedians a set number of jokes to write etc? It'd make life a lot easier for the future if things were kept simple and structured :)

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

I feel this entire newspaper is going to slowly fall apart as Will keeps suggesting the obvious best path forward and no one will listen, or at best he'll be the Sacagawea but back when no one brought up how she did everything.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Yeah I pm'md that having Writers and Interviewers was redundant (why doesn't the Interviewer just say "and today I interviewed..." and publish the interview?) and deputy/back up roles etc were pointless. It depends what people want, if people want to create a good quality weekly news thing they will or if they just want to chat, play weird silly games and enter into bizarre rivalries they'll do that instead :D

Either way makes no difference to me because unlike when I was doing the Review I don't have a lot of free time to contribute a massie amount to this :( I like the idea of having tons of people to begin though because when I tried to do the Review I found it was just too much work for one person so a group collaboration is a good idea. What I imagine is that either some people will drop out, the right people will be found for the right roles and make a good work group or it'll just be another Thread that makes the Lounge interesting for a bit before fading away before the next big distraction.

But I'm (frequently wildly and insanely) optimistic :)

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Thanks for the praise btw, I like Sacagawea but I often think it'd have just made more sense if she'd led Lewis and Clark into an ambush, the Indians could have got all their stuff and there'd have been a few less geographically informed invaders for the Native Americans to deal with... sorry. For some reason that post just got weirdly dark :P

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Will11, why don't you come and work at the CYS TIMES? We have great service.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

This was all expected, really. This is more of a roleplay thing for them than a serious attempt at writing a newsletter. I know the ones you did were time consuming but there's something to be said for knowing what you want to do and just doing it.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

You're right, it was time-consuming. I made an actual newspaper, an actual magazine and it was all ruined... by a dollar. So, I just made that crappy thing you saw.

 

I didn't understand that this whole thing was a joke.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

If it's not clear, this time I was replying to Will.

Based on this and the PM I got about the other thread, you're still using non-threaded like a chump and ain't nobody got time for that.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

I might go with some 8-bit comic strips, for more complex jokes I might send some to Zag.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Sounds like a plan, Stan.

EDIT: Wait, 8-bit? Like pixel art? Whoa, that sounds like it's going to be cool.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Yeah I have this thing on my laptop that designs 8-bit characters so I imagine a rectangle layout and the whole strip would be 8-bit.

I think you get to review whatever game you want, just make sure you don't do the same as the others.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Does the same to for interviewing members?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

I guess?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Apologies to everyone for my absence, my family went out of town for about 24 hours, and I just now got back. Will has made an excellent suggestion, so in a moment I will try and organize some things here and there, then you may all start working on your projects if you wish.

I'll look into some things, then I'll post a due date for all your works to be handed in. I'll probably follow Will's advice as far as all that goes. Again, sorry for not posting. You can most likely expect any questions to be answered shortly. Thank you.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

There's a decent chance that this will end in complete failure :P

 

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

decent chance is a bit of an understatement

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Seems like a bunch of roles could be condensed into one, but that's just my opinion. In any case, I think Will11's system would work perfectly, so yeah...+1. Also would be nice to know as soon as possible if we indeed will be using it or what other deadlines we'd have to meet.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Official-ish Announcement:

So, its Monday already. I believe we have everything set up. So, I think we can start now. The deadline for submissions should be Wednesday, Thursday at the most to give our editor plenty of time to catch any mistakes and edit things. 

Here's a list of what each role is expected to do(Thank you Will):

-The Reporter chooses one aspect to write about the site and writes a 100 word article on it.

-The Interviewers each pick one site member to ask 5 to 10 questions and the Writer writes up their Interviews.

-The Comedy Writers provide a 100 word article of jokes or funny stories. 

-The Forum Game Reviewer(s) each provide a 100 word review of one forum game each. 

-The Story Game Reviewers each provide a 100 word review of one story game each. 

-Updates and Announcements are a work in progress and I think you should message Jaystar about what to do.

-Art and Reading is also a work in progress and you should message Jaystar on what to do. 

-Editor will have to wait until sometime around Wednesday-Thursday for everything, which either me or Jaystar will give to you.

Please note, I think we'd all rather have quality over quantity and if you believe whatever you've written is good enough, but doesn't reach the 100 word mark, message me. This is a writing site however, and I have ever belief that you can all do it ^-^ 

Message me or Jaystar if you have any questions about anything, or post in the thread here! 

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Understood. 

EDIT: Actually, for me, it's still Sunday 8:56 PM.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

This sounds great, and actually all the roles are exactly how I'd wanted. Thank you, Seto!

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Only 100 words? That sounds pretty small. The article I'm working on is already 136 words. Is 100 words the minimum, or can I write something larger?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

100 is definitely just the minimum, and a very small minimum at that! XD Feel free to write as much as you want c:

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Anyone who can't manage at least 5 times that much should be fired IMO. What kind of alleged journalists are you people working with here?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

True xD

I've never done this before, I'm probably going to adjust the minimums as needed.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago
If it's any help from a framing standpoint, most novels have 250-300 words per page.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Yeah, Seto's post is 261 words, just for reference. Thinking he's picturing 100 words as a lot more than it actually is.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Nah, I've been participating in Axiom's writing so I know 100 words is not a lot. 

 

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

100 words!? That's hardly a blurb! Especially when you're critiquing something! I'd ask you to sack Ford and give me his hundred words in addition, but it takes more than one person to form a forum game reviewer union!

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

So right now for the article I'm working on, 'Top 10 Female Protagonists in CYS', I'm debating on whether to put Suzy from Suzy's Strange Saga (Epilogue 13) on the tenth spot, or Suzy from Suzy's Strange Saga (Epilogue 7) on the sixth spot.

Thoughts? Or, would you guys like to nominate another route?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

You could just write about Suzy in general, really.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

The problem with that is that Suzy has no real cohesive personality. In each route, it's like she's a completely different character. She can range from a horndog to a badass and to a depraved incestuous cult mother just because you picked a different route.

I'm debating between Epilogue 13 for humor purposes, and Epilogue 7 for badassery.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Lol you picked the most bat shit insane version of her, along with one of the more stable versions of her. (I had to go through my notes to remember which version was Suzy 7, but I sort of figured she was that one)

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Exactly. One was really entertaining because she was insane and the other was really entertaining because she was a strong character.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

I thought so but to render a bunch of people is a time consuming thing. I might just run a bunch at one time.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Well if 1 takes forever, it's at least a shorter amount of time to do 2 with not much difference in detail.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Not really, but it seems like it's coming along.

Can you explain how you'll be making these?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

I make a comic strip, use a pixel renderer on web, put it together, and edit all the rest with Photoshop. Here's a gallery of my work  You don't have to be a zombie, I thought it was funny.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

No, the zombie thing isn't what bothered me. Maybe show me a comic when it's completed so we can see how it looks altogether.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Yo, @ZagHero I need to know if you know how to attach your comic to the paper. I'm going to post what we had up until the deadline today, so if ya could reply within an hour or so it would be appreciated! >wO

Is the first article going to be published soon? I'm waiting in anticipation everyday to read the rejuvenated CYS times.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

They better publish something soon, because if I have to clean up the thread again, I'm just nuking the whole thing or just banning people. (It'll depend on my mood at the time)

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

There's your incentive, people ^3^ Please pick up the pace, there are individuals dying to see the much anticipated reemergence of this thing finally come into fruition :D

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Plz do the latter

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Is this done?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

I even submitted a forum game review.

granted, it's not mine and I just copy-pasted the entire post (thread title and all) from a year ago but I still submitted something

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

I ask that question too...xD

Do I need to put the entire newspaper together as well?

I did not know what I was signing up for, did I? >~>

Haha thanks Thara but you'd be surprised :D I'm very strict on behaviour but as long as the students meet my standard of behaviour the lessons are informal and fun, any strictness I have I drop as soon as I leave the classroom though: I like to keep work life, social life, writing etc completely separated :)

So I'm just guessing the paper is never going to happen.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Just post your article about the best female protagonists in the parlor room. I'm sort of interested in what you wrote.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Same. Why doesn't everybody just post what they got?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Well, in that case...

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Well, I was planning to put it up today, but WizzyCat and ISentinelPenguinI Didn't hand in their parts..So, I'll simply have to put it up without them. But, it seems I'll have to do it tomorrow, seeing as it's getting late.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

I'd publish even if everyone didn't hand stuff in, it's important to get into a consistent routine of the news thing popping up at the same time each week, just assemble and publish whatever people sent in :)

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Is @ISentinelPenguinI even on this paper, or was that the same situation as Ford's?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

The masterpiece I was planning to review had been deleted before anyone had the chance to play it.

Not counting Tim and Sonic, but Tim was unenthused and Sonic was a twat.

I vaguely remember it was named after some Youtuber he hated, but I never heard of.

Some 5th level vegan or something.

Misha silentis?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Nah, I went on diatribes about Vegan Gains in my first-third-of-life-crisis thread. I did ask "What creature does Sent enjoy slaying most?" and the answer was either going to be Mecha-Hitler or Pussy, whichever one was guessed first.

?If this isn't fifth level, I don't know what it is.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

It was to guess a password for THIS account. The joke was that I didn't actually do it, and that the rules were deliberately designed to fuck players over so they wouldn't guess the fake password.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

So, it wasn't a game but a complete waste of everyone's time then?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Much better than the wastes of time that were presently being engaged in, which was the point of the game.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Usually those wastes of time last more than a hour, though. :3

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

So, I've wasted less time? Or I would've wasted more, had it not been interrupted? I think you're trying to make a point, but you're sarcastically beating around the bush far too much for me to make any sense of it.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

I think you're looking for a point that isn't there, it's just what it is on the surface with no hidden meanings behind it.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

You used an emoticon. You only seem to do that whenever it can be used as a disingenuous remark.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

I use emoticons in plenty of my posts..? I'm not sure how you're able to detect the context behind emoticons, unless you're some sort of a emoticon detector.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

The only time I've ever seen you use emoticons is when you're being sarcastic, but that's in most posts, so I really can't ever tell what you mean at given points like this one.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

It's not like I try to be sarcastic or anything. I'm sorry that you get that impression of me, thus I will now work on making my posts more approachable and light hearted. 

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Trying to be lighthearted all the time is what got you there in the first place. You can't try to be saccharine when you're mocking someone, and then be saccharine everywhere else and expect us to think you're not still being sarcastic. There's no sarcasm barometer.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

You only think that I am always sarcastic, because that's your interpretation of the tone in my posts. You don't need to worry about such things anymore though, I'll make myself more clear in each of my following posts following this conversation :)

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Okay wow, that sounded outrageously sarcastic and it's a post about how people misinterpret you as being sarcastic. I think your writing style paints a vivid image of sarcasm.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Well, yeah. If you use that as the tone of your posts when that's the actual tone, (And don't pretend that it isn't, because you have used this "Voice" for sarcasm on multiple occassions, even is this one isn't it) then when you use that tone, it's going to be misconstrued as sarcasm whenever that's something up for interpretation, because that's exactly what you use it for.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

I will work on making them sound not sarcastic then, Sent. It's a pain when people assume that I'm not being anything else but sarcastic at times :c

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

I'm sorry you all turned out to be such failures. Best of luck in your future endeavors, apparently it'll be needed. :)

Actually, come to think of, didn't Rimjob manage to get something out on his own?* Who would've imagined he'd turn out to be the one single success story here?  (*I think? Never was able to get it to load...)

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Well, thanks for calling me by my real name! 

 

I accidentally made it private, but, I corrected my error and made it public. You can read it now... Guzzal? I'm such a failure.

@EndMaster

I feel as if bans need to be administered to each and every member of the newspaper club 4 kidz.

Buuuut, I think taking away their toys will be adequate enough of a punishment ^^

just kidding guys c: fingers still crossed!  ^3^

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

B-but I sent my article in on time!

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

So, yeah, I guess this is over. Before it even started.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

You're exempt from the (totally real imaginary? ) purge then :3

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

I don't even have to send in an article, I'm just the deputy manager

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

You didn't really think that you were gonna get through this without being punished, now, did you? I don't want to ban you people. Just want to make that clear from the get-go. I want you to write for me. You can't do that if you're banned, now, can you? I'm not growing a garden.

But you wasted my time, a whole damn lot of it. More than I'm comfortable with. And for that, for that you're gonna pay.

So, now... I'm gonna ban the holy hell outta one of you.

You can breathe, you can blink, you can cry... Hell, you're all gonna be doing that.

Yo I'd just like to say I didn't sign up for it and the jjj-warcat or whatever just decided to include me without recognizing my sarcasm

also I've been banned like 90 times now and I really want to see seto get b& because he doesn't think you'll do it

What happened exactly happened to the whole newspaper thing? All I see is some stuff about banning.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Hahaha, by posting in this thread you've now marked yourself for automatic banning.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Well, if you insist...

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

I've already made a list

It has been checked twice

I hope everyone's hearts are filled with fright

Cause someone's getting banned tonight

I will go over it with End 

Because your ends will soon begin

This means that everyday that goes by that this newsletter isn't finally published... another one of Ford's innocent alts are banned. So please do it for him. c:

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

You've probably just doomed all of Ford's remaining alts (Those that I can find anyway). Lol.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

It probably won't be much of a dent to the hidden army of alts that will one day overwhelm us all. Agent Smith from the matrix is what we should have in mind.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

In the meantime, Genghis_Khan took it like a champ.

(Decided to give Ford a break this time)

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

NO GOD WHY! Of all the ones that could've been sacrificed to atone for the lack of newspaper, Genghis was the most productive and fantastical of them...

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Such a terrible and tragic loss, I'm torn up over hearing that news. I've been filled to the brim with absolute despair that we lost such a memorable alt :c

I didn't even think Sentinel cared about his alts except for Angela.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Wiggins, Bonkerbill, SaltySaul, and the Mardoxes were the ones I could care less about. Their purpose had been served, their jokes can be made no more, but Genghis was literally and figuratively a national treasure! I mean, there's a gold mine of potential in Historical Badass jokes and Engrish to be had!

Each of the other alts has its place in the Joke Ecosystem that they were thrown into, Angela lets me joke about my own dick, Alternate-Sents are great to make fun of other peoples' alts with, and Genghis lets me play with whatever material I pick up in History Class or do things that would be funny to imagine Genghis Khan doing.

I mean, there's also Charles the Second and Rasputin to do the history thing, but they don't have the Leonidas-like charm, ancient-world non-controversiality and cultural disconnectedness to really pull off a good character joke without some help. They have their places on their own, Charles is an English Gent and Rasputin is a Disco King, but Genghis was the magnificent rug that really tied the history dudes together.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

He was memorable enough. I mean, he only posted once when you were around, as far as I remember. He was the last alt I ever logged into.

... And I think I left something in one of their notepads that was important or noteworthy, but I don't remember what that was.

In a moment of selflessness, RimC (or Rimjob as he liked to be called) asked to take it like a champ.

His sacrifice will be remembered. (Probably not)

Who was that again?

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

But but but he didn't sulkily wipe his profile first, like the other toddlers. This makes no sense.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

Rimjob said he was tired of reading posts by idiotic noobs and couldn't take it anymore, so he begged to take it like a champ. 

It was unexpected to me too since it came out of nowhere, but hey at least this season has some surprises!

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

A long time ago he asked to penalties 3000 points or something like that. It was random.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

6 years ago

He's been asked to be put to death several times already, or at least, he was infatuated with the idea of having a negative point count. As someone who definitely isn't leaving, and may or may not have been TSR anyway, he seems to have a very S&M relationship with us. But at least the forums will be plagued with less flat-falling jokes... I mean, aside from Khan, who was truly the best alt next to Awoman. I mean, it was a real shame to have lost him. Genghis Khan wouldn't hurt a fly.

CYS Weekly Staff Lounge (Staff only!)

Ok everyone, I've decided to try to put out a second issue of the CYS weekly.

@eshpoyeofdoom @MrMustachio @ZagHero You guys get started on an article. I think maybe a interview of JJJ, Killa, Bucky, and End might be good, see what their detailed personal thoughts on the congratulations thread and the thread addressing Kiel are. I know it's a touchy subject, but I think it may prove to be an interesting addition to next issue.

@Ford since you were sarcastic, you're off the hook. @ISentinelPenguinI you can start working on another forum-game review. Make sure it's one that's not dead or banned.

 

@Will11 @Darkspawn @Wizzycat you guys can start as well. I have no doubt that Will11 will do absolutely wonderful, but Dark and Wizzycat, just make sure to put it out by the deadline.

 

@ZagHero if ya can't find a way to make the comic attach onto next issue's post, then maybe just think of some written.

 

If you all are still on board, then good luck to y'all! Just as last time you can send your finished work to either me or Seto.
