Topic: Forum Games: Forum Games / The General Thread

I think the deadline is what makes the Day so productive and successful. Knowing there’s a limited amount of time adds pressure to everyone, forcing them to be post and analyse. When the deadline is further away or non-existent, I think the “I can post later” attitude kicks in. As a result, nothing really happens and the game dies of inactivity.

Topic: Off-topic / Have you ever done drugs before?

From a previous thread on the topic:

I took Zoloft for a whole year in the sixth grade because my stupid doctor psychiatrist misdiagnosed me with A.D.D. simply because I kept falling asleep in my most boring class, and it ended up having a long-lasting side effect that mostly affects me to this day. Ever since then I regret having such a shitty sleep schedule.

I’ve taken two SSRIs in my life and they’ve been horrible experiences. The first medication was also an anti-depressant, but I took it for social anxiety. It just made me numb and I stopped caring about everything. I even stopped caring enough to not renew my prescription, so I went cold turkey. That’s a horrible experience. The only real benefit of that is that it really helped with my anxiety in general and since then, I’ve cried significantly less.


My life growing up was pretty sheltered, so I try drugs for the experience.

I smoked marijuana quite frequently for about a year. I stopped when I started having really unpleasant experiences. I’ve kinda started smoking again, a little bit. It’s nice, but I definitely don’t go out of my way to smoke marijuana or by any means ‘need’ it.

I’ve taken magic mushrooms technically 3 times. The first time they were in pill capsules and didn’t work. The second time I was extremely high for about 12 hours. Due to the circumstances of who I took them with, I was alone for an hour or two towards the end. That was the most horrific experience in my life. The third time, it only lasted a few hours and the experience was horrible.

I’ve smoked cigarettes. They’re alright, and even though one hasn’t touched my lips in about three years, I still get quite strong cravings for them sometimes. Like right now, actually. But, I’ve been really good at resisting the urge and haven’t relapsed.

I’ve taken ecstasy a few times and I actually really like it. It’s a really dirty drug, often mixed with heroin or cocaine, so you really need to be careful. But taken with the proper knowledge and precautions (the agreement every time I’ve taken it is if anyone feels sick, we immediately go to the hospital, consequences be damned) it can be a lot of fun. It kept me awake for way longer than I would have been otherwise and allowed me to be a lot more sociable and forward in real life than I usually am.

I’ve tried cocaine once and that was enough. I could feel it sliding down the back of my throat and it burned the entire time. Once it reached my mouth it made my teeth ache really badly. The high was weird to describe, it’s a mix between feeling high (like marijuana and magic mushrooms) and feeling invincible. Overall, I don’t like it at all.

With drugs that I’ve had bad experiences with, I have absolutely no desire to try them again. Some say that once you try cocaine, you can never be around it again without wanting to do it. That’s absolutely not true for me. For me, the experience was awful and such a turn off that it could start raining the stuff from the sky and I’d have no interest in touching it again.

I have a list of drugs that I’ll never, ever touch: meth, heroin and crack. I have no desire to try them and you couldn’t pay me to try them.

Overall, I think mentality is the most important part of trying drugs, and safety, of course. But if you’re trying drugs with the intention of getting fucked up and forgetting your problems, you’ll be in a lot of trouble. If you try it to have fun and enjoy yourself, you won’t have (as much) problems with it and you’ll have fun. By far the most destructive drugs I’ve taken have been legitimately prescribed medications.

TL;DR – Yes, I’ve tried several drugs, for the experience. If the experience is bad, no I don’t do it again. Mentality when doing drugs is super important. Prescription drugs are bad, stay away.


Edit: Marijuana being a gateway drug is bullshit. There’s plenty of people that smoke marijuana and only smoke it and feel very, very strongly about that. For those that smoke marijuana and move on to harder drugs, if marijuana didn’t exist, they’d just skip that stone and go immediately to harder drugs. Some people skip marijuana completely anyways. Whoever says that marijuana is a gateway drug is ignorant and only fooling themselves.

Topic: Technical Support / /feed_item/shout/shoutid

I think that’s the URL. Anyways, through a specific (but not hard) set of steps that I will only disclose to an admin, I was able to be directed to the dedicated page for a shout. It’s not a bug in itself, but having access to the ID and being able to change it to whatever you want may pose a security risk. So, consider this a heads up.

The free kreds offers are suspicious, at best. Secondly, that’s only an option on Kongregate. Crusaders of the Lost Idols is available on several platformers, including Steam – which doesn’t have that option at all.

I was going to say the same thing, but neither is Twitter. Although, Kongregate has a presence on Twitter. The services he mentioned makes it more difficult for companies to have a social media presence, so there’s that, too.

You have to be a reg to approve.

[12:27 PM] adv0catus: nayder, unfortunately you need to be an FGF regular to approve since the tournament will be made in that forum.
[12:27 PM] adv0catus: But your support is appreciated and you’re more than welcome to participate.
[12:27 PM] adv0catus: It’s just the forum rules, since I have another game running right now.

I’d like approval for a game tournament. The premise is that before each game is announced, everyone votes for one person to automatically proceed to the next round. When there’s three players left, the voting/immunity mechanic is dropped. I wouldn’t mind a co-host.

It’ll be legal in Canada next year, K_I_C_K. In case you’ve forgotten, Quebec is part of Canada.

trickyrodent mentioned it in OP, so it might happen.
