A Different Life

Posted 5th February 2013 at 11:45 PM by Ashlann (Ashlann's Basket)

Wow, I haven't been 'active' on TOG for a long, long time. I remember the days when gaming and being a very active member of the TOG community were very central to my out-of-work life. They were great times, spent with gaming friends that we enriching to be around. But, as with all things, change is inevitable.

I started spending a little more time sleeping, and a lot more quality time with my daughter. We get out and enjoy photography together (she is fascinated with insects and...

I've been dealing, I've been coping...until today. Today I didn't cope and, because of that I spoke to my daughter in a way that I am ashamed of. So I'm putting this here so that some of that frustration can be vented. I don't have RL friends to 'have coffee with'. I know people don't believe me but it's true.

Sportsmanship and Rules

Posted 18th January 2012 at 12:20 PM by Rage

A lot of things in TOG, as with life, are very black and white. We do not tolerate cheating, hacking or glitching games. We frown upon disrespect towards other players, whether they are TOG members or not. There are also rules to abide by when posting in our forums. And we have an AUP and TOG guidelines to ensure that these rules are understood and followed. But I've come to realise that there are also area's of grey at times, that we can't just sweep into one category or another. As a DC, this...
