Nice setup you got around here, kiddies.

To give everyone that ol' time feeling, you can change the date/time stamp for the boards to the old sourcebook stamps in your profile. To have it show like the books used to, use the following code:
Code: [Select]
(%H:%M:%S/%m-%d-%y)
Edit - Had the day/month flipped originally. It's no correct.

Greetings, and I would feel right at home with those old time stamps.

Stepping OOC for a moment, I'm a long-time SR fan (I picked up the 1E rulebook in 1990) and have been a member (although mostly lurker) of Dumpshock since 2005. And I've been WAITING for the day I finally got FastJack as my handle. ;D

That's rather whiz, I suppose! Then again Dumpshock is also a pretty happening place. It's nice to see there's a forum for this sort of deal!

I will just say this:
WOOT! No need to EVER set digital foot on Dumpshock ever again!
This is the best thing I think Jason has done yet: an OFFICIAL forum.

Too bad it doesn't look like Jackpoint...eh, well....maybe in time...

Honestly, it wouldn't be too difficult to get SMF to look a bit like jackpoint, though it might require additional modules.

Glad to have you here for as long and as often as you can spare.  ;D

I would add that a great many game companies support official forums and that there is plenty of room for official and unofficial forums. Hopefully this forum will prove to be an asset to gamers, as Dumpshock has proven to be over the years.

To steal a line from Mike Mulvihill, "Play games, have fun!"
It's not the one with your name on it; it's the one addressed "to whom it may concern" you've got to think about.

Well, I did ask about other themes and they are working on it.

Okay. It's been over 32 hours since I've first started posting here and I've realized just how much of a Shadowrun Junkie I am (if my handle didn't already say that). The only two posting more than me are Bull and Caine (and they've got a lot more in stake in this forum than I do).

So, I just wanted to thank you guys. Thank you for making me more like the hackers in the game where I'm shunning sunlight and searching for that next great caffeine binge.

Aw hell, I can't even *ACT* like I'm ticked off. I'm having too much fun!

Yeah, you're turning into our regular little post whore, ain'tcha? 

All good... I'm really happy with the responses and how things are shaping up!  So kick your shoes off and relax... we're just getting rolling!

Hack, and the world hacks with you.
There is no overkill.

Only "Open fire" and "I need to reload."
