In the event anyone wanders in before official opening time, wanted to be sure the tacky neon "Welcome" sign was on.

It was ... and is. :)

Geez guys, this place is a labyrinth-bells 'n' whistles to beat the band, and dozens of places to dig around. As you might guess, I've been lurking and peering into cracks and crevices to see what you guys have wrought.

Short version-helluva job, folks-I'm impressed with what I've seen so far. And love the skinning. This is gonna be fun-it's almost like walking into a new amusement park for the first time. Plenty of places to play around in-and get lost in (I've accomplished that particular feat a couple of times already!)

I know that a lot of time, struggle, laughter, tears, cursing, screaming, the pulling-out-of-hair, and maybe the occasional "God! I need a drink!" accompanied this monumental undertaking but in the end it was well worth the effort. My friends, I wish BGO only the best of good fortune.:thumbsup:

Ok, so the Arcade is cool. I played Space Invaders last night for the first time in nearly 25 years. Took me right back to Friday nights at the roller skating rink.

Yeah - I could've created it a lot more quickly if I didn't feel the need to try out each and every game myself along the way :)

Testing is important. You had a moral imperative to make sure each and every game worked.

That's a great point. Sounds like we have our first community decision on our hands. Maybe we'll post an Official Forum-Name-Nominations Thread and have some fun with it.

In fact, as it was your suggestion, you have the honor ...

I don't know, man. The one you chose is making my Hokie heart proud.

If you're serious though, PM me and we can talk about changing you up. I understand about usernames ... they matter.

Agreed. I noticed that you all have Amateur Surgeon. This just keeps getting better and better. :)

For you Fear the Spear...*bump*

I wonder if the thread title was an accident or a snarky reference to the contrast we were hoping to build here relative to some *cough* 'other internet sites' way of managing things?

My bet is on snark.
