Rocky has ruined GR2...


Recommended Posts


I hereby sentence you to be banned from your own web site and forum, to never return again.

The reason? You have endangered the GR2 development by keeping the Christmas decorations on the gr.net picture (see above)!! :nono: Don't you know it's bad luck to keep decorations up for so long after Christmas?

Now there's so much bad luck around that I'm afraid this is my only course of action.

banned.gif - Sorry Rocky, I hate to do this to you.

And seeing as no one else at gr.net noticed this awful atrocity taking place, I can only suggest that I, Cobblers, take over from Rocky and hereby in take FULL control of all controlling interests concerning gr.net.

To say that others haven't noticed is incorrect, you however are the first to say anything :P

As I have been told first hand

:rocky: "It's my website, I'll do whatever I please" :rocky:

I thought better of bringing this up for fear of losing my supporter privaleges :no:

Infact I think that for some more fun the main banner graphic should change per month weath something seasonal or funny for that month. I know Platoon forums logo often flips about with funny changes ... do a submition section for peeps to play about and then up them every month.

Surely this rather posh forum has the ablility to update its graphic header file per month with a seperate graphic refresh every 1st of the month or maybe more frequent?

I know the menu options are mapped and are part of the logo itself, maybe slice it into 2 and then the top main graphic is automated to flip to something different each month .... ive said too much. :ph34r:

(then again Rocky and the Mod's will proabably ban me for saying such things) :)

"ennit"  :shifty:

ahh, Northampton slang! :rolleyes:

@ McNamee, Calisus & Chems - Should GR2 be a success, there will be a Northamptonshire Lan party going on. You would be more than welcome to join in if you like. Visit: www.silent-troopers.co.uk in the near future for more details. (I've just got to upload the info on it).

I challenge all our graphic artists to start submitting something appropriate for the month of February.
