After a discussion between MattmanDude, CrazyOldTeenager, and myself, a short (but to the point) series of rules will now be coming into effect for this...

Just a message from an old wanderer passing through.
Lot of information for new recruits packed into a mere article. Also has three medal of honor soundtracks to listen too while reading if you want. Enjoy.
Your new order of business now that you are a member of the Grand Army of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Sometimes I play Track-Mania 2: Stadium on this server - [B&E] BEGINNER & EXPERT - Maniaviewer.com Attack&path;=
If anyone's willing to play with me and other competitors once in a while, don't hesitate and join in. I just installed this game and it's quite neat. You'll have to download some updates and it may take some time. At first the game's interface is somewhat confusing, but you'll get used to it after a few minutes. We can chat there or simply compare our notes(lap times;) There's a fast chat box, so we could instantly communicate or just exchange pleasantries.
My username is l-c-69 and I have the British flag. Let me know who's willing to play with me and tell me what's your username. See ya.
whisper: I'm not a pro driver, so you'll certainly see some lame lap-times. ;)
You'll find me on that server each weekend(on Saturday and Sunday) from 18 00 to 19 00. Cheers. :)
Damn thing doesn't work anymore.
whisper: I need a crack. ;) but it's nowhere to be found. :/
It seems I'll have to find a new game. Anyone has an idea? A multi-player mambo jumbo game?
And Track-Mania was such a neat game. :/
When it comes to multiplayer I usually go for Arma.
Either that or a strategy game like Command and Conquer or Supreme Commander.
I played Track-Mania II several times. And now I cannot access my internet account and I can't even play the single player mode. I'm not confused, I'm like: O_O NO!!! And I've met some cool people there. :( I'll have to purchase an original version. Hmm I must have played a trial version. Me and games, I don't know much about this digital paradise, seriously.
Have you ever played Soldiers: Heroes of World War 2? There's a multi-player mode, but apparently nobody plays it anymore. Maybe you could give it a shot?
Arma? It looks like this infamous(for some reason) Call of Duty series. I know that people play that Counter Strike or something.
Track-Mania 2! I want it!!! My poor wallet. Is there a steam account? It reminds of Tomb Raider. I acquired this game, but once I finished it, I misplaced my steam password and I was mad, cos' I spent nearly 40 euro on this game and I couldn't play multi-player or single-player anymore. Steam. -_- No. I didn't give up. I found a torrent and I survived. :)
So, it was a nice scenario. First buy the game, finish it, lose the serial number, get the copy and play again. -_- Oh and no muli-player, not anymore. -_- Damn you Steam.
So, you purchased this... Arma? Is it on Steam?
Arma 3 is the specific one I play. You can go in editor mode (make your own missions) and there are tons and tons of mods for the game making it awesome. You can do everything from hop in a jet and escape to fighting Dino's like the raptor.
Arma is by no means a call of duty clone. It requires tactics, strategy, and teamwork. Where as in call of duty you just run and gun killing each other and have mental breakdowns. :-P
Just looked into, Track Mania sounds like a cool racing game. Last time I played a race game though was at an arcade at Round Table Pizza after my baseball team won a game.
And yes, Arma 3 is on steam. :-)
Pricey though, may want to wait till it goes on sale.
I cannot afford to buy several games at once. And I really need Track-Mania 2, maybe there's a gold edition with all patches and additions. I was told to play this video game once, so I decided to give it a try. And now that I cannot access it. I've never been so sad about a game... well, there was this Tomb Raider case, but the TR multi-player was a dismal failure anyway. I need Track-Mania.
So, Arma is a steam game, isn't it?
Yep, it's on steam. :-)
Virtually all the mods and community made maps are free too. So once you get the game, you've gotten more than you bargained for.
I honestly think I should keep all my serial numbers and passwords in a safe. And Steam is somewhat irritating, cos' once you forget your password/SN, everything's gone. -_-
Yeah. I purchased TR 2013 - steam version, but I had to buy d-l-c anyway. What is this d-l-c anyway? Why can't I buy a full game now? Play Station 1 and older PC games were cool, cos' they were full versions. Now there's Steam and semi-full games that can be "expanded" by additional content that you have to buy. Here's a good example - Youtube.com I watch this you-tube channel for fun. :D
Hmm I'll buy Track Mania II. And once I have it, I'll contact you. Okay?
DLC's are how they make more money these days.
Oh. I'm not entirely sure if you want to play it. And you'd have to buy it yourself. It's a minor detail... the price. :D
I hope it's still available. If you wish to play it with me and others, cos' you want to enjoy yourself and experience something new, by all means, join us, we have cookies on the track. :D I don't force you to purchase it. Whisper: You have free will anyway. :D
Thanks for your valuable time.
See ya. :)
People, set of points I want to make quickly.
1. Cut it out with the vulgar language. Or else I'm going to start deleting comments no matter how relevant they are. And yes this includes visitors to the group. Zero Tolerance.
2. Please resist the urge to down vote people like λpone whenever he posts something unless he's just saying outrageous things. In which case you report to a moderator such as Mattmandude, CrazyOldTeenager, or Me.
3. Have a Wonderful Day.
1. Stop being so sensitive. Sticks and stones mate.
2. Agreed. Karma trolls have struck us before and it's annoying, so why should we be karma trolling to people?
3. Good luck, lol.
Who said anything about being sensitive?
But now that you bring it up, that saying isn't true. Insults are verbal abuse and do affect people negatively. Even the Bible backs that up. We don't curse people, we bless them instead. In itself that's a major difference between us and the heathen.
I consider it showing class and respect by keeping it clean. Even if we slip up at times, no excuses. I'd rather people be disciplined than let it go unchecked. It helps set people straight. Even if that person were me.
Make whatever demands of yourself that you wish, but don't try to force them on others.
I say cutting the profanity would do wonders in the anti trolling department.
If someone was just being belligerent then I'd delete the comment. I will always delete pointless attacks with no substance to them (when I see them anyway). But just swearing alone isn't something that I feel is worth deleting a comment over.
Ok, I can agree with that to an extent.
But a notice on the group telling people to at least try and keep it clean would be appreciated. After what I saw in the debating society Id prefer we have guidelines on this kinda stuff.
I have a few questions about Christianity sirs.
Who is Jesus?
It starts in the old testament after the fall of mankind.
Man had fallen into a status of corruption and degeneracy. And lost whatever connection he had had with God thanks to the fall.
But the Lord had other plans, and didn't believe mankind should be left to rot. So he devised a redemption plan to bring humanity back to its rightful status.
Sin needed to be addressed, and the only way a sinner could be redeemed was to place their faith in one who could intercede on their behalf before the Lord. One who was not only perfect, but human like them, all in order to meet the sacrifice demanded on our behalf for our sins. That person would be Jesus Christ. And as long as people trusted the Lord with this plan, even before it was put into action, they would be saved.
So then came Christ 2000 years ago, and he lived perfectly, until he was eventually crucified as was prophesied in the old testament. But Christ wasn't just human, he was God incarnate. So God himself gave his own life, for us. And to confirm he was the Christ, he was resurrected three days later as prophesied.
And since then, this world has never been the same. Christ not only gave redemption to all who believe, but he took captivity captive and set the captives free. Now hell had no legal right to hold anyone who trusted in Christ.
We may be sinners, but as long as one knows Christ, they are redeemed.
I believe Jesus existed but what's the proof that he was sent by a god and that the only way to this god is through him?
The virgin birth, the resurrection, the life he lived, the lives he changed, the accounts of him and the personal experiences people have claimed to have had with him.
I don't hear Muslims or Buddhists claiming to have seen Mohammad, Allah, or Buddha. But I hear time and again Christians having seen Christ. Even I had a experience once where I saw Him, if you check the next few pages of comments you should be able to find it. And above that another experience someone else had.
There's a lot more to Christianity then people admit. But the thing is you have to be willing to open yourself up to it to truly understand it. And that's something not everyone can take easily. Which is understandable, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Just like there's the physical, there's the spiritual side to a human being. And once Christ gets to ya, than the spiritual side starts changing. Then the next thing you know, your saying God bless you.
Also in Matthew 26:36–56 when Jesus goes to pray and he says "Sit here, while I go over there and pray.” 37 And taking with him Peter and the other two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled. 38 Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me.” 39 And going a little farther he fell on his face rand prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will."
What does this mean? If he knew the crucifixion was coming, why did he become sorrowful and ask the cup to pass from him?
Because as a man it's not something he could have done but for the added Angelic strength from the Father he was given, since he was in fact God the Son, not just a man. What Christ was about to do was by no means a easy thing.
We all know how grievous the torments were he endured going to Golgotha on Calvary, we all know the hatred he suffered, which in reality would have killed any human being from the physical as well as emotional abuse. It wasn't until he said, "It is finished" as was recorded in scriptures and historical texts that he finally passed on that cross.
They tore the skin off his back with the whips, they forced him to carry the cross all the way to Calvary to the point someone else had to help carry it, they spat on and mocked him, and then even had him hang there on that cross bleeding out and suffering for hours and hours. The pain and abuse he endured was beyond recognition.
But despite it all, he said "nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will."
Such is of the Christ. For only he could show such resolve and strength even in the face of such adversity. The human side of him knew what was about to happen, but the God side said let it be done. For he knew for humanity to know Salvation, this is what must happen.
