  3. So here's the deal. I'm going to apply to teach at every school posted in this thread. What do I want from you? I would like the following; find a local elementary school near where you live and provide the following information...

    Principal's name
    School's name
    Mailing Address Address (Address, City, State, Zip)

    Finally... just a little background information on where you live and what it's like.

    Then post them in that order in this thread. I will mail out an official copy of my intent, resume, recommendations, license and transcripts. And who knows... maybe I will be moving to your town sometime soon. Stipulations...

    • It CANNOT be a catholic school
    • It MUST be a K-6 school, my license only covers those grades
    • I would PREFER not to live in a podunk town of 50 people. (if YOU hate the town you live in... please don't ask ME to join you in misery)
    • I WILL apply to out of country schools... but my chances of being hired are much slimmer
    • You MAY list more than one school if there are a couple near you
    Let's find me some work!

      There's a ton of schools around where I live (Humble, TX). You might have to do some looking around on the website because I've never attended the elementary schools around here, but I figured, "why not?"

      No, it's definitely not like that. It's just automatic transmission for the 21st century.

      We had a big discussion about this earlier this year (in fact, in this very thread)

      It was a general consensus that Strife/Heretic/Hexen mods were OK to nominate. There really are no communities for those games and they really are part of the Doom family.

    3. Creaphis

      Creaphis

      In the same way as how ZanZan and Foreverhood have been honored on this site before, it makes good sense to consider quality Heretic/Hexen/Strife projects for awards (if any are ever made). "Doom" for me is more about a hierarchy of engines and philosophy of game design than about any particular set of resources. Heretic is Doom, Hexen is Doom, and Doom is Doom.

      But at the same time, one could assign such worthy projects a "Mauloward" instead.

    4. esselfortium

      esselfortium

      Well, Chex Quest 3 won a Cacoward last year, so...

      Heretic, Hexen, Strife, Chex Quest, and Hacx, while some are clearly more advanced and differentiated from Doom than others, are effectively commercial Doom TCs when considered by the standards of what Doom mods can do nowadays. Tons of features that originated in Heretic, Hexen, and Strife are used all over the place in ZDoom mods. With advanced source ports, the only thing that truly differentiates modding for Doom and modding other Doom-engine games anymore is the set of resources used as a base and certain elements of gameplay that would be expected from each respective game.

      A modder could make a Doom mod that plays like Hexen.wad, or a Hexen hub consisting of Hell Revealed slaughterfests if they really wanted to. While they're undeniably separate games, when it comes to modding them they've all become so intermixed that it would be rather arbitrary to disqualify worthy projects from Cacowards due to their base IWAD.

      "As for the actual action, it's a beat 'em up/FPS hybrid, somewhere between Double Dragon and Condemned"

      Huh...The whole time I was thinking "River City Ransom"...it was almost exactly the same, what with all the named enemies and such. Not that that's a bad thing. I have fond memories of that game.

      Potato wedges. Cut real thick, possibly battered, and deep fried. Think French Fries but alot bigger and titled by Americans. They take the tato in potato and replace the "o" with "er" so you sounds like a hillbilly. I'ms gunna go get some beers, you fry up dem tater wedges. Best be gitten 'er done before I get back.

      A really fattening appetizer/side item. A potato "wedge' (just like an orange wedge) covered in any of the following: salt/butter/cheese/bacon/chives/sour cream/sauce. some are battered. they're alright. J wouldn't eat too many; I value the aorta.

      Also Catalina is awesome.

      Thats all I can think of off the top of my head.

      Me too. The irony is that the reason it's hard to read is due to bad grammar. There should be a comma in there.

  10. Today, I subbed for the EBD (Emotional Behavior Disorder) social worker. There are a number of high risk and emotionally disturbed children who come to the room throughout the day. Most of the time the students are fine and just need to be removed from the general classroom for a while. Today just happened to be one of the craziest days of work I've ever had. I had the usual student that I have to go to the classroom and remove because they are being unruly and not following directions and disrupting class... but one kid made the day worthwhile.

    This student, a 5 year old Kindergartener, is now on half days because of severe emotional and behavioral problems. He comes at noon each day and starts from there... and the day REALLY started from there. His teacher sent some reading and work for him to do in our room, so he and the Paraprofessional that works one on one with him start reading a story.

    He starts out drawing transportation vehicles that Fly/Roll/Slide on a piece of paper... but he gets frustrated drawing a helicopter and starts to throw a fit. Now, I should add that this kid is a runner... so the Para blocks the door to prevent him from running. After Throwing a little fit, he starts putting on his jacket and backpacks (he put 2 on at once). He says...

    "I'm done with this, I'm going home. Don't try to stop me, I'm outta here."

    Obviously the kid can't leave with an adult blocking the door... but it's at this time that one of the Special Education teachers that works with him, comes down to the room. She talks to him for a while but he's still not hving it. He throws his backpack across the room and throws off his jacket. He traipses across the room to the corner... near the Special Ed teacher and myself.

    At this point things start going wild. He strips off his sweatshirt to reveal a blue wife beater and tells us he has some "powerful moves" and will kick our butts. He looks at me and says...

    "Back off old man!" ...and proceeds to mutter something again about his skills.

    Before I can start laughing under my breath, the kid grabs a long metal rod, about 6 feet in length and begins swirling it around like a bo staff and making kung fu sounds. At this point the Special Ed teacher and I move in slowly as to not get ninja'd by a 5 year old Donatello. Unfortunately for him, Mr. Browning is slightly stronger than a 5 year old, and I move in and grab the bar with both hands as he struggles to ply it from me.

    After being disarmed, we managed to calm the student down and get him to quietly work on his project again. He arrived at 12:00PM and it was now 12:30PM.

    Later in the day, around 2:00PM, I was on my break period talking with the women in the office. They said there was a kid rolling down the hallway. Being the replacement for the social worker, I stepped out to see what I could do. So there was my kung fu student, rolling down the hall with 2 teachers standing by him.

    The technology instructor and I pick him up and haul him back to the classroom. He calms down and asks if he can have a snack. Yeah, sure kid.

    The end of the day rolls around and he's still here. He decides that he's going to lay down on the floor and not get ready for the bus. The principal comes down and tries to get him up, then says he's just going to call his dad and tell him to get him. Apparently startled by this revelation, the kid lurches from the floor and walks out the door to his bus.

    So... how was your day?

      ...the incident...

      Basically, Death-Destiny and Mechadon had a falling out over a disagreement on how the new 1024 project should be handled, as I understand it, and Death-Destiny basically said "I'm going to take my toys and play somewhere else!" rather than settle the issue. He hasn't posted since.

      Well, that's only part of the story. Death-Destiny was manipulating things behind the scenes the entire time and didn't even allow Mechadon to see the submitted maps until he (D-D) left the community forever.

      There was also D-D manipulative control-freak drama behind the scenes with Community Chest 4, which wasn't actually supposed to start until much later than when he decided to stick a map signups thread online one day, without any warning or consultation from the other leaders.

      And of course we can't forget his attitude when responding to legitimate criticisms (My maps are just too hard for you, Belial, one of the best Doomers in the community! It's not that they aren't fun or rely too much on random luck, you just aren't good enough!) or his ridiculous ideas about how all of his maps would be flamed on the idgames archives "because they're too hard".

      tl;dr: Guy shows up, tries to get in with community projects and make himself look good, then set things up so that he can appear to be the victim of whoever gets fed up with him first.

      I was following details of a lot of this with Mechadon, Use3D, and The Green Herring long before it came to the public eye...dismissing it as a disagreement is not only missing the scope but the entire point of the thing. The guy's entire purpose here was to manipulate others, and from all the people who for some reason still think he was the victim there, he evidently succeeded.

  17. Recently I have been thinking of having a "Month of Doom" this coming summer featuring several competitions and contests with numerous prizes. I was contemplating prizes for contests and what you would do to win them. Naturally this event needs several things, community members to help, donations to purchase prizes and suggestions on what to have take place. So far I've considered...

    Prize suggestions

    • id anthology
    • Doom 3
    • Gameboy DS w/GBA Doom
    • Quake Wars: ET (if it happened to be released by the summer)
    • Reaper minis
    • Action Doom Merch!!
    • Date with Kaiser (subject to availability)
    • XBox w/Doom3 and/or Resurrection of Evil
    • Nintendo64 w/Doom64
    Competition/Contest Suggestions
    • Odamex Tournament
    • Speedmapping Contest
    • Wad Making contest (1024/sector limit/etc)
    • Speedrunning/demo Competition
    • Quiz Contest
    I don't know why I feel like pulling this together, maybe because I want to give something back to the Doom community, but also to breathe a little life into Doomworld.

    Don't mong up this thread :P I want serious suggestions and input on whether there is enough interest to generate enough donations to have worthwhile prizes... and enough people to help organize events.
