Single Status Update
I'm unsure of how I feel about this blog format, though I think this new forum software in general adds a lot of personality. It sure gives off the impression of a lot more activity, even if in posting content itself there isn't a ton. Many avatar changes; and as I updated my own I'd like to state for the record that, contrary to some people's belief, this is not actually a pic of me :/
"The single greatest cause of sudden death among beautiful, young, female players is that the guy who was role-playing them wanted an irreversible out" - Richard Bartle "Designing Virtual Worlds"
What a fantastic quote that applied to several people in zandronum's community. Bartle dedicates a section of this book to "masquerading" or opposite gender role playing in virtual worlds and damn it just fit perfectly with some of the people I've seen around the Doom community since late 2009. If you're interested in virtual world design and dynamics I recommend picking this book up!
