The Chaos Engine

Chaos In The Games Industry

Don't forget, it's only a few months until the TCE Born Day is upon us once again. Not that we ever really do anything about it, but this year I think we should. It will be a cleansing, cathartic experience.

The recent kerfuffle in Irrelevant Corner has resulted in a ban for one of the users concerned and another member has quite publicly stated their intention to leave the boards. Amongst other things, it is quite clear that this could affect the reputation - if such a thing should exist - of The Chaos Engine as a decent and largely civil place for games developers to congregate.

There are two things to remember here for future reference.
  • The Admin and the Mods won't step in until people start requesting it directly. We don't get paid, we have our own lives to lead and our own jobs to do. If you want us to do something, please ask.
  • Watch what you're saying and watch who you're saying it to... Just because you think something is acceptable, it doesn't mean someone else does. And visa versa. And here's a tip for those of you who lack common sense: It is acceptable to agree to disagree and walk away. Your opinion is just that, it doesn't mean you're right.
This is a good website and there are a lot of excellent people here talking about games, talking about random crap and everything inbetween. Let's not regress to a Fatbabies state, shall we?

If you have any questions or comments about this, please PM me.


We havent forgotten you...

Unfortunately its more I than we. Its pretty much entirely down to me, and trust me it can take time to process requests. Lots of it.

Unfortunately I am not paid to do this job, nor do I really have loads of time spare for it, but I do my best, and recently both my work life and home life have beggered belief (by recently I mean the last year or so :deadcrab:)

I am hoping to make some time this weekend to process some, and then take it from there, a little at a time.

In the meantime, if you know someone who is a member, you can speed up the process by getting them to vouch for you - get them to drop me a PM, and that will effectively queue jump you (of course if I get thousands of vouches, then I'm similarly stuck, but they are faster to process). Otherwise, hang in there, I will get to you, it just takes time.

Thankyou for your patience.
Get yourself on over the Irrelevant Corner and make YOUR vote count! Yeeeeeeeeeeehaw!


TCE Admin

And then the voting ended!
Our least successful Chaosmas yet!
Thanks to all who voted and commiserations to those that 'won'.
See you all in the new year!
Nominations for the various categories will go up shortly.


TCE Admin Peeps
To all our stateside chums, Happy Turkey Day from TCE!

To any the above working on this day... Commiserations. :deadcrab:
Just a quick note to say we apologise for the slight unscheduled downtime over the last two days. Needless to say I have had a stressful couple of days :)

In related news we are kicking off our yearly fundraiser for the TCE hosting costs, so please give generously.

Re applications, yes, we have fallen behind yet again - I promise we will be attending to them forthwith, I shall whip the slaves myself...
We're behind again.
I am trying to rally the troops, but communication is sparse.

Please bear with us...
