Despite what the book and movie want you to think, there are no perks to being a wallflower.

Editing this to be OT or user/gs related can be a good game

Dave, these statements are best made in the sign-up thread.

I think it would be better as an annual event. Also, editing a comic would be a good idea for an event, and I am open to Jim's comic being used despite that being a poor critique of The Fountainhead, a fact that would be recognized by anyone who read the book. Fortunately in such a scenario the text would be changed, so olympians will be able to rectify the mistakes of the author.

That's not the spirit of the Olympics Lai.

The Olympics are a celebration of humanity's finest athletes. Similarly, the OT Olympics are a celebration of OT's exceptional community, and an opportunity for outsiders to participate and compete against them as well if they want to. It is a great distinction to be named Champion of the Gods.

Champion of the Gods is the distinction that will be achieved by the Olympian with the highest total score after the final event. It is an important component of the games. Do you object to that?

Not really. Best if you just don't harp on about it.

It seems as though it's better for reading mega threads. However, scrolling for a longer period of time will suck.

I need outside opinion from an OT veteran. Tough decisions like these cannot be made alone.

I wonder if Bruce will be angry at Dave when he returns. I am hoping for a huge fight.
