nah, it doesn't require any capital to start a store like Poly's. I just don't have much time to work on it right now.

Maybe when we get our own server next year we will have a store to help with server cost... :)

Cool. :cool:
Mugs, t-shirts, screensavers etc. dont take much investment, and if its helping to pay for the site I imagine there will be strong support.

I dont know about the condoms, but I would buy boxers if they had the little civ2 guy on them. :D

Hey, Shaitan had a t-shirt thing going last demogame. Custom T-Shirts! :D

Maybe have tshirts with quotes...
Or, CFC in bold letters. ;)

And for us mods, maybe a mod action text. ;) (along with Gonzo's puppy picture above it)

1) Who would choose the quote?

2) Some posters change avatars so often it would be very difficult to pick which one to use.

3) Can you imagine the legal issues involved? :eek:

4) You just can't get enough of "farting bob," can you?

1. Um, good point.
2. The more they change, the more common cards you'd have... "I got another JoeSpaniel James Bond" "Really, I only have the dog with the helmet, can I trade you?"
3. Good point.
4. I don't know if I will ever "exhaust" that topic...

During their controller's upkeep, Forum Downtime does 1 damage to each poster in play. Forums do not untap as normal as long as Forum Downtime is in play.

I have been dying to weigh in on this CCG idea but I've been banned. Here are some creatures:

Newbie 1/1 black creature. Each turn that newbie is in play, put a "Redundant thread token" in play. Treat this token as a 0/1 wall.

Thunderfall: 5/6 red and white legend. The player who controls Thunderfall can play a patch card directly from his or her hand. All moderators get +1/+1.

farting bob: 1/4 black creature. At the end of combat, put a fart token on creatures that block or are blocked by farting bob. Those creatures don't untap during their controllers untap phase. If any player plays a moderator card, destroy all creatures with fart tokens on them.

I could go on, but you get the point. It's good to be back :)

Don't get me started, don't even get me started.

Unlike Brittain and the rest of Europe, where topless women on tv has been the norm for nearly half a century, "fart" was a word you couldn't even say on tv in America until, until, well I think they still don't say it on network tv. And suddenly here comes this young visionary who just decides to call himself... well, it just brings a tear to my eye when I realize how much freer the world is today...
