    TOP SHOTS March 2020

    We will have prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd

    PhotoShop etc is allowed
    Screens taken in-game are preferred but not compulsory
    Please don't just post random pictures!
    DO NOT dump your razor screenshot folder here. Collages of kill shots are acceptable.
    Please stay on topic.

    [​IMG]
    Closing Date: Last day of the month at midnight (I tally "votes" sometimes a day-ish late, just fyi)

    Winners will be judged based upon the number of likes each picture receives. The winning pictures/names will be submitted to STAFF for trophy creation.

    RULES:
    These rules are to assist with moderation and hopefully keep Top Shots on topic with zero trash talk. Please take your gripes to Trash Talk. Your issues with me, my friends, staff or your marital problems belong in Trash Talk, not in Top Shots. I'm not doing this for me, this is for the community.

    1. Top Shots is to benefit the community, not to benefit your ego. PvP kill shots, house looting, thievery, idocs, are all acceptable submissions. However, Keep your gloating to a reasonable level.
    2. Engaging in trash talk, derailing Top Shots, or just being a negative nancy is going to result in a violation.
    3. Initial violations are given a warning. Repeat offenders will find their submissions and votes negated for that month. Consistent violations will earn a permanent "ban" from Top Shots.

    thanks Samorite will get Feb tallied. been out of town

    Nevermind. I just read the Feb thread. Not sure why the drama about this tally being late, if you really cared about accuracy or if you just wanted to cause drama and shit...

    Thank you for taking a fun activity and being a bag of dicks about it. I have run this for close on to 3 years now and I can count on ONE hand how many times I have actually tallied the votes the day after the month ended.

    This bullshit is exactly how a few folks ruin it for the rest. Never question why we cant have nice things or why volunteers stop volunteering or even caring.

    NM one last time. My apologies for allowing behind the scenes drama to spill out here

    In the progress of my rounds I was called to a most disturbing scene...

    There was only one witness but I couldn't get anything of use out of her.

    Perhaps she'll be more forthcoming after a few nights in the PEN....

    I don't think it was nearly as dramatic as you made it seem here. Maybe to you because this is your baby but to the rest of us, it was nice to see passion and nerdiness.

    Looking forward to more close races for first and second and more detective work from those nerds who know what a UTC whatever the hell that was, is.

    I can't believe I'm agreeing with you @TreeHugger



    @LanDarr it was a close count that hinged on a very specific but ambiguous detail so we had some fun with it. I don't think any of us were being uncivil. Your reaction is truly perplexing to me.

    This is the personification of authority.

    Beware, would be tricksters, charlatans, and assorted riff raff. THE FORUM POLICE ARE ON THE CASE!

    PS You should equip the badge on your post, Detective Green.

    For any of you wondering where I get my seemingly endless supply of bull shit from, it's Yew Graveyard:

    upload_2020-3-16_23-1-2.png

    "Attention! The Forum Police has received a report of serious "gridflock" in the vicinity of Yew Graveyard.

    Officers are investigating whether this conglomerate may be a "honey pot" designed to lure unsuspecting novice tamers to their untimely deaths. Possible turf expansion of the notorious "Jhelom PK" and/or his rumored associate "Ned Flanders" is currently under examination.


    Citizens are urged to avoid travel to the area and remain at home or aboard fishing boats until shovels can be located... Those unable to avoid the temptation are strongly urged to remain on the lookout for blade spirits, energy vortices, and other red creatures.

    Travelers are further advised that the presence of so many animals may attract the attention of permit employees belonging to Chumbucket and Associates. This group is known to take a heavy hand towards suspected violators, and those present at the scene may be confused with unlicensed scofflaws and subject to summary execution.


    Turn your crystal to WSNN Radio Britannia for further updates on this inexplicable situation."







    The preceding inclement cattle report has been brought to you by the FORUM POLICE.
