I would donate, but I just don't have any money to give until after Christmas.

Which is a shame, because I'd love to see Tristan banned and not write articles about Retro forum drama every day.

Well, that or he's worried that your enforced absence would force Stadium under the microscope.

TSS has been under the microscope since 2007. Nothing new there.

Further under the microscope, then. =P

Yeah, I just went here - http://www.childsplaycharity.org/

And donated $15 instead.


^^^ Thats a rare post. What brings you here DK?

Eh, I want to help children in need. I'm a charitable dude. smile.png I just find it deathly ironic that people are donating to 'ban someone they hate', when in actuality all it's doing is glorifying and cementing Tristan's status as playful and harmless. If you think you're teaching anybody a lesson by donating to this cause instead of straight to the source, you're being played for a fool.

That, and I need to spend more time on Retro anyways. Love this place.

I would say you're a Grinch, but doing it that way only means you appreciate having me around so much.

I'm flattered.

In many ways, without me none of this notoriety you've gained would have ever existed. So I guess the appreciation from you is mutual, eh? wink.png

Wouldn't my methods make me the opposite of a Grinch anyway, since it gets you out of a ban?

I was never worried. Annoyed, back in the day, yes, but never worried. Should I be worried of a bully? I don't know, I'm not in high school anymore.

Good to see you kicking around as well, Nik. smile.png

Haha, I was just joking about TSS/TSSZ. To be honest, I don't follow the site and rarely find myself getting worked up over what is posted there. As far as I remember, being on a Sonic site's staff involved far more serious worries than the occasional "ZOMG Pachuka said Sonic Site #547 is closing!" news story.

Thanks, you too. I've mellowed out a bit lot since I used to post at Spong, heh. Ended up doing some mild journalism of my own over at Arcade Heroes, though my time for that (as well as most other things) has been severely cut in recent months. Did manage to get to Summer of Sonic, though.

Holy crap, I had no idea you were at SoS. smile.png Unless I did and I completely forgot (must apologise, my mind was all over the place that day). I remember your posts at SPOnG, I actually didn't mind them! I was doing freelance for the site but I'm fulltime now, which is all good. Busy busy though (lunch break, hee hee).

In regards to this event in general, I have no ill will towards Tristan other than the hate/love/hate obsession he seems to harbour for me (but hey, not my problem). But in many ways, the Sonic community has never been tighter. So I disagree that in doing this we're "putting aside all differences", it merely seems to be a way for Tristan to make good with all the people he's pissed off without actually apologising. But hey, if this is his way of going about it, then I'm not one to complain.

Wish you all the best with the charity campaign.

If you're gonna donate to Child's Play and there's an option of a fun extra, why not take it? I got a picture drawn during Desert Bus =P


Wait, wait, wait...you won one of the Ken Steacy drawings? That is awesome. v.png

I'll probably donate some moolah next week. To anybody thinking of donating, I highly recommend it, it's for the children!

So, your donation not only helps get rid of that red-headed bastard for a while, it also helps children in need. It's a win-win for everybody...except for Tristan.

And me. For every $10 you donate, you (the donator!) get one day of oper-abuse immunity from me. emot-ssh.gif


(I am also a red-headed bastard)

With one more week remaining, Tristan's 'ban' currently stands at 2.4604 days (that is, if they will be including hours as well).

Also, that's some neat stuff Overlord. v.png

OK, we're at Saturday—the thing ends Wednesday—and we're only at $180 something dollars.

That's not even a 2 and a half day ban.

Throw those ban hammers at me, people! I'm looking at you, people who have (EDIT - Inflammatory -T) in your signatures!

You can click that ChipIn thing in my signature.

Get crackin'!

Yeah, sorry, 75 dollars for a day is far too expensive for my blood. I could send the same amount of money to some Chinese people to get them to hassle somebody in WoW for a whole year.

Also, over at SFGHQ we'll ban Tristan for life for free.
