Gaming Lounge / Beat 10 Games in 2012 - Chatterx's Revenge
« on: January 01, 2012, 06:05:45 PM »
Round 2, Fight!

How many games do you actually finish?  I would bet most people these days do not finish the games they start out to play.  Earlier this year Chatterx told me his new year's resolution was to beat 10 games by the end of it.  At first I thought it was kind of dumb, but then I couldn't think if I actually beat 10 games last year.  I've toyed with the idea but I'm taking his resolution on myself.  10 games.  10 months left.  Anyone else want to take the challenge?

These can't be games you've beaten before.  These all have to be new to you.  I'll certainly be platinuming Bayonetta this year, but I beat it on 360 last year so I will not count it on my list.

These games don't have to be recent.  No reason I can think of to exclude retro titles.  For many of our members there are tons of great games that came out before they were born.

If you will be taking the challenge do not lie about it.  There's nothing to gain from doing this except for personal satisfaction, don't deny yourself of even that.
Didn't make it last year?  Now is your chance!  Did it last year?  Do it again!  Same rules as last year.  Currently I'm obsessed with SWTOR and since it's an MMO I will not be counting it.  I hope to be able to pull myself away and finish at least one game by the end of January.  I've got Uncharted 2 and Rage sitting here in shrink wrap just waiting.

Who's with me?

38 Announcements / Thumbnail Tag Improved
« on: September 12, 2011, 05:39:01 PM »
There's been a thumbnail tag around since was launched:
Code: [Select]
I don't know if its existence has ever been mentioned though.  It was really cool in the private staff beta, but somewhere along the line the code broke.  Time was running short so instead of debugging it I just made it 200% less cool and rushed it.  It worked, but wasn't very practical.  Today I finally picked up where I left off and got it working again:


39 Announcements / Oh man there's a portal
« on: September 12, 2011, 02:12:28 AM »
After months of waiting the portal has finally made its return!  Now when you visit the homepage you won't be thrown into the boards.  For the time being it's looking a little bare.  It's still a work in progress, but what would you like to see added to it?  Let me know below and I'll take your suggestions into consideration.

In related news, the portal implementation didn't come without a few bugs.  Actually more like a million bugs.  Most are under control, but I'd appreciate it if you post problems you come across.  I'm already aware that psn, steam, and 360 icons show up twice.  I'm also aware that soundcloud support is currently broken.  Both functions will return soon.

EDIT:  soundcloud, thumb, and spoiler support has returned

40 Announcements / 4 New Local Moderators Selected!
« on: September 07, 2011, 06:32:44 PM »
Over the past month we've been on the lookout for 4 new moderators to help out the community.  This is the first time we've given out Local Moderator positions.  This was also the first time that we asked Bit Heroes and above to submit applications.  I felt this process went very smoothly although a bit slow on the selection side.  In the past we've had every staff member be a Global Moderator.  With these new guys they're only responsible for a specific section each.  Please welcome:

Nintendo Moderator - Eltrion
Microsoft Moderator - Croixiane
Sega Moderator - TASE (formerly known as HeyAppleKnife or HAK)
Sony Moderator - TheLittlestBowl (on IRC as john)

I'd like to thank all of those who applied.  I'm sorry if you weren't chosen for the job, but we really appreciate the interest!

43 Announcements / Reporting Posts: A Public Service Announcement
« on: August 25, 2011, 03:09:12 PM »
Recently we've had a surplus of members giving warnings to other members.  This needs to stop.  Reporting posts to staff members is encouraged though.  There's a "Report to Moderator" link next to every post.  Even this one.  Filling out a report will send an email to everyone on staff.  We even have a nice page that lists every post reported by a member for review.  Please do that instead of posting in the thread and preaching the rules.  If one of us is fixing a double post and it's followed by a post reading "no double posting!" then that's more work to do.  After the double post is fixed then the warning makes no sense so that has to go too.  What if 5 people did it?  That's 5 posts to delete for no reason.  What happens if 5 people report the same post?  No extra work.

Please use the Report to Moderator link, that's what it's there for ;)

(This isn't against people who mention violations on IRC.  That is helpful and you're welcome to continue it, however the Report to Moderator option is just as useful.)

44 Announcements / New Feature: Thinglink Support
« on: August 12, 2011, 01:09:20 PM »
As requested by TortureLabs, Thinglink support has been added to the site for use in your signatures, tutorials, whatever you want to use them for.  Here's how it works:

1. Register an account at
2. Login to your account at
3. Your first time it will ask you about installing thinglink.  Ignore the installation suggestions and click on "tag a single image" at the bottom.
4. Enter the URL of the image you'll be using and click "Tag this image".  Your image must already be hosted on the web, you cannot upload an image directly from your computer with thinglink.
5. Tag your image by drawing boxes on it.  The box corresponds to where a cursor must be to activate the tag.  The Description will show on the tag, so keep it relevant.  Enter a Link(URL) for the tag so that when you click it something happens.  Want a link to your twitter feed?  Put in the URL for it.  Want a soundcloud tag?  Put in the URL for it!  Due to some of the restrictions on 128bit I recommend putting tags at the bottom or center of your image rather than the top.  If tags are to appear above the signature field they'll get cutoff.  They also seem to get cutoff on the left side too, so if you're not centering your image you should avoid tagging the left side of your image.  Click done when you're done tagging!
6. After clicking done you're presented with a view of all the images you've tagged and stats about them.  Hover over the image you've just tagged and click on the 4th icon "</> EMBED IMAGE" It gives you something that looks like this:
Code: [Select]
<img src="" width="150" class="alwaysThinglink"/><script src=""></script>To use it on the forums you'd have to convert it to this format:
Code: [Select]
[img thinglink=158634525579018242][/img]
Notice that the number after "thinglink=" is the number after "embed.js#" in the first code example.  When you're done you have something like this:

Sidenote:  You can edit your image tags while viewing it on 128bit as long as you're simultaneously logged in at thinglink.  You can always edit your tags at

So after Friday night's incident (marijuana debate that was handled poorly) we've changed our policy on IRC promotions.  In the past we've given +h to Bit Legends and +v to Bit Heroes.  I've never understood why exactly we did that.  Voice is useless unless the room is muted and there's not too much that separates a halfop from a regular op.  Now the breakdown goes like this:

Admin - Operator
Global Moderator - Operator
Local Moderator - Undecided, but probably Half-Operator
Bit Legend - Voice
Bit Hero - Voice

Regardless of privileges being stripped, I'd like to take a moment to talk about bans.  Bans are not taken lightly on site or on chat.  There are only 4 users capable of swinging the ban hammer on site.  The only reason someone can be banned right out is for being a spambot.  Bans are extremely rare here and each one is discussed before it happens. 

So back to Friday night's incident. It was basically XX-STR8 v the rest of the channel on the legalization of Marijuana.  XX-STR8 was threatened to be banned by 3 users (I don't need to name names 'cause you know damn well who you are), none of whom are members of staff.  His only crime was being the only user in the room supporting his side.  For not discontinuing his argument (keep in mind that the other side never budged either) he was kicked and banned by some of our most trusted community members.  This never should have happened.

If you can't handle politics and religion then stay away from discussions involving them.  Everyone out there needs to realize that just because you have an opinion it doesn't mean you're right about everything.  There's at least 2 sides to every argument and the only way to come to a conclusion is to hear out both ends.  You can't pick one side and not hear the other out.

As far as I'm concerned this is no better than treating someone poorly because of their race.  You're supposed to be the best members our community has to offer.  Act like it.
