That was pretty miserable weather battlefield conditions, but we made do, and we had some good rounds. Outpost is always a hit.

EDIT: Oh right! Highlights....

I wasn't there for too long, (not my fault really) and I came midway through Outpost, sorry I missed most of that. I just loved picking Skitzo for my team.
+ "Skitzo, retreat over here... please"
+ Spawning in Outpost, looking at z80, saying "yeah this position sucks" and bushwacking through the downed tree to capture the uppermost base.
+ "Hey! Zombies can't say anything!"
"Ok... Mmhmhmaaahghmmm" (Matt is over here!)
+ Getting betrayed by z80's nightfinder. As he comes to try and zombiefy me, I have one shot... with a gun lent to me by the zombie... so of course I shoot the barrel out, with the dart still inside. Doh!
+ My warm shower afterwords.

I really wish someone could host one in the city T_T
But I'll ask my friend if he could give me a lift.

Don't you think perhaps YOU should host one then? Regardless, I can't think of a single place in Manhattan where it would be an exceedingly good idea. Perhaps if you scouted Rosevelt Island. The F will take you there one stop past the 50th street station, and there's plenty of grassy park areas. Do something about it instead of whinning.

I'm coming, but z80 already knows that. Saxon is a great place for nerf.

On the other hand, it would have been nice for you to at least politely decline the invitation to come to the war, instead of completely ignoring the topic of this thread to call out someone for being marginally dumb.

While honorable as the intentions expressed in this thread are, the proposals that are being put forth are not quite feasable.

The new influx of members was an important event for this site, I think it did a ton of good by bringing in a lot of new faces. I myself came in only a short time before the flood of new members, but I certainly noticed the change. After the application dam was broken there were a flurry of 9999 specials served up. So much for the idiots. I guess the complaint here is aimed at the people who didn't make any really dumb posts, and managed to escape a ban.

I think it is unfair to boot people for past transgressions. If there was to be a general bar-raising for post content, I would suggest that those people who would be in danger of a boot be warned, and then if they fail to conform to the new standards then they'd get a boot.
But the best idea is simply to lead by example, to point out poor spelling of grammar, and simple constant reminders that NerfHaven is not a place where the lowest common denominator is tolerated. I think that no drastic action needs to be taken, and that slowly but surely the "old" Nerfhaven will come back as you remembered it.

By the way, a ton of the other ideas are completely improbable because they require way to much effort on the part of the admins. Reading essays? Patroling the boards 24/7 looking for misplaced commas? Try telling OMC that he should spend his sunday as a human spell-check.

And finally, there are more pressing issues in the world. Such as the shrinking usage of the hyphen: http://www.nytimes.c...r=1&oref=slogin

Well, the weather was bee-utiful and most everyone brought their A game on sunday. (As opposed to their Bee game)
I felt a little under the weather, but there is nothing better to wake yourself up then getting nailed by titan-kid.

My highlights:
+ The fantastic attack Kenji, Skitzo, someone else and myself pulled off at the end of one of the games. Everything worked out perfectly, it was a textbook push.
+ Some of the other fanstastic battles that took place on the cliff.
+ Another great game of outpost to close it out.
+ Wielding the deadly sword and actually recording some kills. Haha!

And some lowlights:
- I wasn't stung, but other people were. It is quite frankly the first time I have ever even seen bees in those woods.
- The hissy fit one team threw in the three team game. Come on people if try to wait until the other teams take each other out, you get what you deserve.....

It was great to have the people that came, especially nerf-beginer who played like a veteran. It was fun.

I'm gonna throw a question out there:
So, if we use the carpool system it will be kind of complicated, and if people come late, there could be a problem. But, if we use the main parking lot, there will be no parking complications; however, there's a catch, the walk from the main lot to the fields is around 0.8-0.9 miles (about 20-25 minutes on foot). The paths are really flat and wide, but still, carrying all of that stuff that distance is tough. My question is, which would you guys prefer?

Thats a monkey wrench.

Look, we're going to have to make special arrangements it looks like. Nature of the beast. But why can we not stick to our guns, and do things the way we've planned. If people come late to that parking lot, walking is not an issue.
The best we can do is answer questions about the field and access. We'll give out phone numbers and on the day if people have extra questions, they'll be answered as well.
