    That's some interesting profile icon if I ever saw one.

      Can't for the life or me draw a decent raccoon in Paint. Even less so a half-dragon sorcerer. Now a bunch of coloured squares, that I can do!

      You can find a lot of high-quality, free images at Pixabay. Try searching there, you're surely going to find something that catches your fancy. Those are all under creative commons license, so you don't even need to attribute anyone (unless you want to do).

      Looks like the old pic they used to air on TVs when the regular broadcasting failed. It even used to have a very "nice" tinnitus-esque ringing tone to go with it.

      @skatan I remember that very well indeed. Back in the days when TV went off the air for a while at night. :)

      Yep, that's exactly it, Skatan, Zaghoul. And thanks for the suggestion Rik_Kirtaniya; I think this will keep me amused for now though :)

      Soon you will start discussing the dark ages when people had to stand up from their chairs and walk to the Tv to change channel or adjust volume...

      I draw like a 2 year old with her first crayon. I'm 1000% better at painting with words (aka writing),

      That describes me pretty well too LadyRhian :D

      This activity thread looks very promising... an appropriate arena for summoning another Behemoth... I feel it is time once again. Who's with me?

      All hail Lord Textwall!
    • Tresset
      Tresset
      Well... Those behemoths do make it kinda bothersome for me to monitor the activity page for spambots that may be joining... All that scrolling...
    • Silverstar
      Silverstar
      Sounds like you could use a scrollbot.

      We most definitely do not need another Behemoth!
      Now, if we can somehow turn this activity thread into a Leviathan instead...
    • Rik_Kirtaniya
      Rik_Kirtaniya
      Collapsible wall comments would certainly be a quality of life improvement for everyone. Especially spambots! ;)

      I'm okay with the Leviathan idea too!

      (By the way, I report spambots on the activity page or elsewhere whenever I see them. ;) You might have seen a report from me: "Spambot detected. Alerting @Tresset. Deploy @Minion.")
    • Silverstar

      Personally I prefer the Hammerhead to the Leviathan. It carries less troops, sure, but I always feel I have to use the Leviathan to its capacity and that just makes the missions take so very long. Unless you bring a lot of aquanauts instead of SWS.

      That rings a bell, but can't recollect from what or where. Is that a vehicle in some game @silverstar?
    • Silverstar
      Silverstar
      In X-Com: Terror from the Deep, the Leviathan is the ultimate vehicle, basically the Avenger from the first game. It's also the name of a tank in the W40K universe, but to anyone who's not played Epic that seems a less likely reference to get :) Good old TftD... I wonder when Firaxis is going to announce they're working on it.
    • Skatan
      Skatan
      Ah ok.. that was the one Xcom I played the least. Played the first and the third (or forth, depending on how you measure. There was a flight sim in between I think) a lot more than the second, which IIRC, was TftD.
    • Rik_Kirtaniya
      Rik_Kirtaniya
      Yes... this thread is growing... I like this...
    • Silverstar

      The "flight sim" was Interceptor. Never tried it myself. I'm unsure if it was 3rd or not, though Apocalypse is considered the third of the "main series" (Enemy Unknown, Terror from the Deep, Apocalypse). Wonder if Firaxis will redo Apocalypse as well. They should hurry up and announce TftD already, they've been hinting at it long enough.
    • Skatan
      Skatan
      Yes, that's the one. Never did try it myself, Interceptor, as I didn't fancy the concept. I actually liked Apocalypse a lot, but I recall some fans didn't since it was a step away from the classic concept. The forth one, don't mention it's name, was almost as horrid as HoMM4! I get creepy chills just thinking about how bad that wretched abomination was, poor thing.
    • Skatan

      Thinking about it, is the gaming market cursed with it comes to forth installments of previously great games?

      Xcom 4
      HoMM 4
      Mass Effect 4
      ..does the list go on?

      Just exercising extreme caution. I'll get a new avatar up tomorrow or something, one that is 100% not someone else's work.

      That is why I only use photos! There is no way anyone could complain about that... Right?
    • Rik_Kirtaniya
      Rik_Kirtaniya
      And I use my self-created avatars! (Thinking of making another one soon... This one has stayed there for a long time now.)
    • Silverstar
      Silverstar
      People's ability to complain is infinite, Tresset :P But yeah, if I've created it myself then at least I won't get in trouble forum rules or artists.

      *nods* I changed mine as well for that reason. But I think this santa hat one breaks the rules.
