Line combinations and jersey images taken from DailyFaceoff.com. If there are mistakes, blame them, not me. And yes, I know the Preds jerseys are out of date. Just try and imagine them in that... erm... glorious gold, rather than blue...
If Hockeytown0001 wants to PM me the official GDT images (before 6pm Central. After, try Vladdy16 or Harold), I'll be glad to replace my poorly cut & pasted job with his photoshop wizardry.
Not hacked. Just a spammer account posting 120-some-odd spam threads.
Once I saw what the problem was, I suspended the account from posting new threads. That stopped the problem, and just left cleanup to be done. If I had my laptop with me, I could have cleaned the whole thing in a matter of about 2 minutes. But I'm doing this from my iPhone, which makes it a little bit slower.
Thanks to the members who used the "report" function. That is the best way to bring things like this to our attention. When a post is reported, the entire mod staff gets an email notification, which helps us respond to things like this even faster.
Give them a break. Mods have a life and need sleep like the rest of us. The aren't paid to monitor the site 24 hours a day. These spam threads popped up at around 6:30 on a Sunday morning.
This. All the mod staff, as well as Matt, have lives outside this forum. We try to keep things like this from happening in the first place, but sometimes things slip through. We're not paid by anyone to do this, so you'll have to excuse us when our real lives get in the way of our time on an internet discussion board...
Problem is no one is utilizing it properly right now. Just like the Wii. It has such potential. But in addition to the problems above, no one is making fun games that use it. I could go on and on but I'm supposed to be working right now lol. I'll just say that I envision a good combination of controllers and motion sensing. Let me hold a controller while playing Halo, and sway my body to peek around a corner. Something like that. Give me a reason to bark orders. I think part of the blame lies in the fact that gaming is hugely so risk-averse. The big guys with the moolah only want cookie cutter games in terms of creativity. I don't think it's that we can't, but that those who can aren't allowed. Hence why indie gaming is bursting at the seams ready to blow, if it isn't already.
Mass Effect 3 was a game advertised as "Better with Kinect" in much the same way, that you could bark orders like "grenade" or "Kaden, go here", etc. While I'll agree it's a great concept, the problem was that it was so poorly implemented that the delay between issuing the order and it's execution bordered on laughable.
Much easier to use the controller to throw the grenade or issue the order with one button than to issue the order and wait 3 seconds before the system realizes it was supposed to do something...
MOSCOW—A flaming meteorite plunged to earth in Russia's Ural Mountains Friday, smashing windows and injuring around 500 people.
Amateur videos broadcast on state television showed an object streaking across the sky around 9:20 a.m. local time before bursting into a fireball. Residents in the city of Chelyabinsk, the largest in the affected region, described a shock wave from the meteorite that blew in doors and smashed glass.
More videos here. Watch the first "Cell phone" video, and listen with speakers/headphones.
In unrelated news, I'm flying to Russia to try and lift Mjolnir. Wish me luck!
It's probably best to leave discussion of why we do/don't like Family Guy for the Water Cooler, at the very least. I understand that the subject matter makes it easy to wander into that realm of discussion, but people's like or dislike of that show is often rooted in political or religious viewpoints, which generally aren't approved content here on LGW.
If you want to discuss such things in PM's, you're more than welcome to. But at the very least, they don't really pertain to hockey discussion, so it would be best to leave them off the boards "at-large".
For those who posted in my previous "Pre-GDT" thread, I'm sorry, but your posts were deleted, and it's completely my fault.
I can't merge those posts into this thread without bumping Hockeytown0001's post down (due to the timestamp on the posts). I think we all can agree that since he works so hard on the graphics on these GDT's, he deserves to have his work featured at the very top of this thread.
So Euro_Twins, Ram, and stevieisthebest, My apologies for your now-missing posts. And sorry for the confusion to anyone else who's wondering what the heck is going on around here.
Fraser certainly wasn't perfect in his days as a ref but even his worst day meets or exceeds some of the guys they got now. And Bill McCreary is sorely missed on the ice.
This x100. I always respected Bill McCreary above all others. You may not have liked the fact that he nailed one of our players for a penalty, but there was never a doubt in my mind that it was the right call.
