    Eighth Anniversary Thread for Great Badge Justice

    It's anniversary time once again! This year we're making you work a bit harder for your badge. In order to earn it, we want you to try a new part of Dtoid you've never experienced or haven't visited in a long while. Hardcore basement dweller? Try writing a cblog or three. Stick mostly to the front page comments? Check out the Huge Chat and hang out there for a couple nights. Never gamed with Dtoiders? Join or host a Friday Night Fights. Podtoid devotee? Give a listen to a couple of community podcasts or check out some of the video/live streaming shows. Never met another Dtoider in meat space? Change that by attending a NARP or con and have a blast IRL with your internet friends!

    We're looking for more than "Hurr I wrote a cblog now gimmie a badge" or spending just five minutes in chat. Put some effort into this and try to get to know some new Dtoiders. Post back here in this thread with a paragraph or two (and links if applicable) telling us about your experience!

    We'll keep the window open until the end of April to make sure everyone has enough time!

    The "douchebag" thing has been sorted out. That's good. Made posts stranger than they usually are.


    - - -


    I was part of the two-man Community Interviews team, and completed thirteen of them (I think that's right).
    I was part of the cast on The Lower Tier Podcast. I also helped master and mix two of the episodes (the second of which should be dropping this week).
    I've written a few cblogs.
    I've participated in three wolf games.
    On March 15, I will help spearhead the resurrection of the venerated NARP.
    I've finally hosted two FNF sessions during the summer of last year.
    I've paid Mike Turvey to be part of the community FNF banner.
    I've been mentioned by name on Communitoid more than once in the last year.
    I've earned a shitload of badges in my first year on the Forums.
    I've made friends, acquaintances, and probable become a nuisance to many.

    I've also racked up almost 8,000 posts in a year. I'm a chatty sonbitch.




    And it's been wonderful.

    Cool idea. Been a while since I've ventured into the Cblogs.

    Do past efforts count or from this point on? The only thing I don't do is listen to Podtoid and write Cblogs(that often).

    Yeah, is this new activity only, or does my laundry list not even count?

    I guess you'll have to host Sup Holmes, then.

    Do something you haven't done in a while! People going to the SE Narp could use that, or just revisit a section of the site they haven't frequented for some time.

    Will consider really recent stuff as qualifying, but people are strongly encouraged to try something new. Got almost two months to qualify, so there's plenty of time.

    Nice! I've been wanting to try and get back into the community. Hopefully it'll mean some more forum and cblog posting, rather than just being a twat on the front page.

    It'd be nice to meet some new people, get reacquainted with people I used to know, and maybe make some friends.

    The new stuff is really a massive step up from the Jim/Holmes era.

    Well, I guess I have yet another excuse to hammer out some of the several ideas for Cblogs that have been floating around in my head forever.

    I need to find some time first. Currently devoting 90% of all free time I have to making a game as a personal programming exercise and submission for cool stuff. Once that's done I'll see about interacting with cblogs, FNF and Steamtoid communities.

    Are we decided on the badge design yet?

    I went to a NARP in eugene with 3 other dtoiders 2 weekends ago. The last NARP I had been to was in 2011 so it was good to be back. It was me, Tony, Colin, Chris and Jill. We played dokapon kingdom and went to a racist pub(it was called "Chiefs" and had tacky "native" things everywhere and as a native it was painful to say the least)then we watched pacific rim because jill had never seen it. We had all kinds of beer and I played minecraft most of the weekend. We had the longest game of cards against humanity I've ever played and it was so god damn awesome. We got burritos and tacos and they were delicious and we had waffles and watched twitch plays pokemon and yelled at the tv. I found out Colin is from my home town and went to the same high school as david and we bitched about how lame it was. Chris gave us some of the extra figures he had and I got one from evangelion. Then on our way home we drove to downtown eugene and I got day drunk and said hi to some friends who lived down there. We checked out the local barcade and decided that we were gonna come back and party soon. It was an awesome weekend.

    I've tried many aspects of Dtoid so I'm not sure what to do. I suppose I don't listen to Podtoid so if that's a legit way to go I'll have to.

    Looks like I need to bang out a few Cblogs. Been meaning to do that anyway.
