The Oasis

LYAT is the cool place to hang out. You can find most of the cool people there. In LYAT you can just chill and do whatever and totally relax. "Take it easy" is the LYAT motto, for example, that's how laid back it is there. Show up if you want to have a good time. Another good reason to show up is if you want to hang out with friends.

Nothing as hectic as the quote train that "Quote me, please" can get to, but just the option to have one quote within another set of quote tags would make some discussion a bit easier to follow when both the source and its response can be easily quoted together, instead of having only the response or having to fiddle around with quote tags to get both to appear.
Actually, the limit on quotes is a mod we added explicitly to avoid pyramiding. But I've half a mind to at least increase the limit on nested quotes from 1 to 2 when we get back.

There was a reason I closed it in the first place. I regret having not quashed it as soon as you re-opened it.

Steam just notified me about an annoucment in the TF2 group.
You may have heard that Reddit bought Team Fortress 2 today. We can officially confirm that this is in fact the case. So if any Reddit staffers are reading this: Hi, boss! We're working pretty hard over here. Well, back to work.


Okay, the Reddit guys've probably stopped reading by now, so we can be square with you: Reddit only thinks it bought us, because that's what we told them when we met them over the weekend to sign all the legal documents. What they don't know is that when a bird flew into a window during the signing and everybody on the TF2 team got scared and some of us started crying, that was a little something we in the business world call a distraction.


The "bird" that "flew" into the window? Not a bird at all. It was a squirrel launched from a t-shirt cannon by one of our guys across the street. The part where we got "scared"? Daniel Day Lewis-level method acting by the TF2 team. The part where some of us started "crying"? That was because the sound of the squirrel hitting the glass was a lot louder than we thought it would be and was legitimately scary. So technically real, but still under the umbrella of our overall deception.


Once the Reddit guys were thoroughly distracted, we took advantage of them awkwardly trying to avoid eye contact with us and switched the legal documents for new documents. Documents that said we actually secretly bought them. Business.


In celebration of our Reddit purchase, we're going to add some new Reddit-themed items to the game. There's also plenty of neat stuff we're working on and would love to tease. But realistically, because today is the International Day of Foolishness, anything we told you guys would just be met with suspicion. And when have we ever trolled our community? Never, that's when. Okay, maybe that one time.

There used to be a bronibooru tag called not_at_all_inappropriate. The thread was basically that tag, things that could be regarded as against the rules or not depending on interpretation, toeing the line between safe and not safe. The problem is that after it was reopened, some users posted things that were very clearly against the rules. You are better off for not having seen them.

There are many delicious kinds of cake. Strawberry shortcake, ice cream cake, cookie cake, and especially birthday cake.

It depends on the particulars... straight cheesecake usually has no taste but depending on the flavours it can be awesome.
That said, if there are any carrot cake haters in here we're going to have fisticuffs.

This might sound weird but I really feel like I like most of the people on this board better now that I've seen them "at their worst" so to speak. Yes, even the posters in that thread. It makes them seem much more human, and for some reason I like TRS more when we know what it's like to have our hair down (and are capable of taking full advantage of it), but have the mods to keep us in line most of the time, rather than strictly one or the other. :snoop:

Maybe you should just get off the computer today. That would probably be a good thing, just sayin. Complaining about it right now makes you look like a spoilsport and a stick in the mud.

I tried to get into the spirit of it, but it just got way too mean spirited and just stopped being fun.

For those that enjoyed it though, I'd offer a little Twist tech report.
