It's sad because OT has been pretty much dead and I can't think of anybody else for the other spots. Also, where are the nominations for most intelligent user, best debater, etc? Those were staples of previous OTcars.

What do you expect when thegerg is in charge? OT is dead now.....the OTcars are dead now...and I don't know why anyone is trying to resuscitate them. Maybe wait a year and see if things change...but most of the nominees haven't been here this year. Aren't awards supposed to be current?

You've got to be kidding me.

Those nominations are gone because 1)Users with a shred of intelligence disappeared. 2)OT is no longer capable of hosting anything close to a debate to have a best debater award.

Why are you so hostile? I mean for example I do believe coolbeans98 is a smart fella and it did slip my mind. So I take your question and throw it back at you, what crawled up your ass and died?

I'm not hostile. I'm simply being direct. You, on the other hand, are acting weird. First, you insinuate that I'm stupid by saying "Users with a shred of intelligence disappeared". I'm not sure if you're still upset about what I called you in your piracy thread(I haven't changed my mind) or what but don't act like you have any foundation for being upset when you acted like a jackass in your first post to me.

Wow and you actually believe you're not being hostile. Before you start raging at me, you're of course free to believe me or not, but I can assure you that it was not my intention to insinuate anything, I'm serious. I was voicing a rant in light of your original rant that's all. How did you come to the conclusion that I'm trying to call you stupid? It'd have been much easier if I just said it out loud. And why bring that piracy topic back? You made your point there very clearly you don't need to rub it in my face any more.

Which includes a planned game of Mafia in the coming week

#77 Posted by Laihendi (5834 posts) -

Dislike first post, like the second one.

I will assume the role of OT games keeper carries over to TDH as well. If anyone is unfamiliar with what TDH is then here is a link to you know what I am talking about because I want you to understand what is being discussed here http://s4.zetaboards.com/The_Daily_Happening/index/

Also I believe that during the awards ceremony for this year's OTcars I should be recognized for my accomplishments as host of last year's OTcars which was one of the most successful OTcars of all time.

#80 Edited by 4myAmuzumament (1791 posts) -

would it be a good idea to force newish users into our nominations? like, vote for two people you know, then between now and closing, pay a little more attention to newish users and try to vote them in.

adding the "@newishuser" would help in bringing in traffic.

idk, but this place shouldn't die.

#82 Edited by Laihendi (5834 posts) -

It is my opinion that in this time of emergency, full hosting responsibilities and the corresponding authority should be immediately transferred to someone with experience and a record of success to ensure that the 2014 OTcars gets on track and lives up to its predecessors. As host of the acclaimed 2013 OTcars I am prepared and willing to accept this burden.

#83 Edited by 4myAmuzumament (1791 posts) -

Lai for host, please.

#84 Posted by Master_Live (15890 posts) -

As you know, OT has been bleeding users, specially since the "changes". But I have seen an uptake in traffic in the last few weeks. OT is making a comeback an the OTcars are going to mark the beginning.

#85 Posted by Master_Live (15890 posts) -

108 sunrises ago and seven hours ago the Gamespot's tech guys brought forth on this website, a new interface, conceived in Crapiness (mostly on the beginning but still too much), and dedicated to the proposition that all users should suffer equally.

It was hard on many of us, but there are still people who can't handle the truth! And while the new interface might seem grotesque and incomprehensible to you, in the long term it will save Gamespot's life. So yes, GAMESPOT ORDERED THE CODE RED!!!

---------------------------------------------------

The Almighty says that this must be a fashionable Forum. It has drawn the finest users (and not).

Sons of OT, I am Master_Lives. *ultimate-k shouts: you aren't Master_Lives, Master_Lives has a 1,000,000 posts!*

Yes I've heard. He makes anti Obamacare threads by the hundreds and if he were here he'd consume the GS tech guys with fireballs from his eyes and bolts of lighting from his arse.

I AM Master_Lives! And I see a whole army of my fellow GS OT forumites still here. Here in defiance of crappiness. You have continued to post as OT forumites, and OT forumites you are. WHAT WOULD WE DO WITHOUT GAMESPOT!? Will you continue to post? *NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO*

Aye, stay and post and the OT could still die. Go to other video game forum and you will continue to post with better features...at least a while. And dying in your beds or when net neutrality goes kaput, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance...just one chance to tell GS tech guys that they may take our

  1. Unions and User Created Boards,
  2. video downloads,
  3. Certain advanced forum settings, such as the ability to set forum topic sort order, posts per page, and custom username colors
  4. Member Levels, Points, and Emblems
  5. the comfortability and familiarity we had with the old forum.

BUT THEY WILL NEVER TAKE OUR OT FORUM!!!!!

ALBA GAMESPA!!!

---------------------------------------------------

Look not many people were angrier than me when the changes came. Remember this thread? But little by.................little, and I mean little, things has been getting somewhat better. We have to move forward and keep grinding it, once a great attorney said: "The night is darkest just before the dawn. And I promise you, the dawn is coming". I just ask you to bare a little longer, because I know Gamespot, but OT specially, will rise again. So let's try to make 2014 the year of the OT comeback and if we fail then at least we know we gave it our all. And that is that.

#86 Edited by Master_Live (15890 posts) -

I went back reading as far as October 9, 2013. The day of the schism. I think we should mark that date as Pre-Schism and Post-Schism. To me this are the Post-Schism OTscars and so it should be reflected that way on the nominees. *Nominees are listed alphabetically so no favoritism could be implied.

I agree.

Fortunately TDH provides a fast-loading forum experience with many of our distinguished Gamespot OT personalities, including myself, Dave, Jimkab, and such old favourites as D3nnycrane, Rawsavon, and xaos.

We also have Jim the mod.
