View Full Version : OffTopic FAQ (beta version)

12th Nov 2000, 12:02 PM
Q: I've got a couple of pictures of my (wedding / child's birth / prom / root canal) and was wondering if this is the appropriate place to post them?

Only if they can easily be made into bad puns, tasteless jokes, or involve girlfriends dressed up like cartoon heroes in short dresses.

We may be easily amused, but even we have standards.


Q: What's up with that GunnerX guy? He's on IRC constantly?

GunnerX is actually a research project by the Canadian government to study Artificial Intelligence through human interaction in a semi-controlled environment such as internet relay chat. There were problems with previous experiments in the line. GunnerV, for instance, ran amok, killing seventeen innocent bystanders. Even worse, GunnerVII escaped and took over the Gamespy servers, leading to the current forum problems due to it's faulty MySQL programing.


Q: Why are there so many posts involving poop?

In order to offset the highcosts of running such a popular server, Gamespy took on the responsibility of serving non-gaming sites. One of these sites is PlanetFeces. Unfortunetely, every once in awhile the forum databases screw up and switch messages from there to here.

If you think it's bad here, you should see the hilarity that ensues when the people on PlanetFeces' ButtMunch forum get a post entitled "Why Patch 4xx sux" and argue about wether or not spackling their behinds is such a good idea.


Q: Where did that USS Eternity thread come from?

All we can say is that the "War on Drugs" is losing. Badly.


Q: How can I get one of those little pictures under my name?

<sound of PUF death squads beeting person to death>


Q: Is this a good place to tell that joke I heard from the secretary down the hall?

A: Only if it's a funny joke. And Skumboy doesn't count.


Q: What are these words everyone uses, like "woot", "yull" and "blork"?

Woot is old latin for "Say there, I am extremely happy. Please let me express my joy verbally in a loud manner".

Yull is from the southern portion of the United States and is usually meant to mean "Hello there, fellow farming worker. I've just come into the room from feeding the pigs their swill. Hello!".

Blork. There is no blork.


Q: I'm afraid of posting something that might be considered obscene. What's the standard for OffTopic?

Here in OffTopic we've had any semblence of good taste removed in a surgical procedure involving large amounts of anesthetic and LiquiD_SiN posts. If your Mom grounds you for anything less than three months for posting what you did, then it's fine for us.


Q: Why all the obsession over those sigs at the end of posts?

Failure to comply with OffTopic's posted minimum .sig laws is punishible by either death, or Dopefish. Most people chose death.


Q: What happens when an "OnTopic" post turns up in "OffTopic"?

Do not panic, citizen. This situation, while not uncommon, can be scary. However, thanks to modern developments in Internet Legal Technologies (ie "we got Boom drunk, and sat him in front of the keyboard") we have developed the unholy terror that is Goshen's Law, which simply states that "any post or thread which contains a Goshen head will immediately be considered OffTopic for the rest of time and a day, so help us god."

In order to facilitate the timely use of Goshen's Law by civilians, we here at OffTopic Central have developed the easy to use image for placement in dangerously OnTopic conversations.



Q: What's the deal with that Goshen head thing anyways?

A: It's an Ohio State University Buckey Football thing. You wouldn't understand.

Q. What is the Dopefish?
A. There is no Dopefish. It is only you who spams.


13th Nov 2000, 10:25 PM
What can I say SC? It's pure and simple genius! Not only have you captured the essence of the PuF aura, but you have completely made PuF into another science. PuFology will now be studied, (with your FAQ being the main source of knowledge) by all those that are lurking out "there". You are the first and only person to have a PhD in PuF.

A big round of applause to the SimpleOne.

14th Nov 2000, 01:47 AM

Q: What are hot carls, warm carls, cold carls, Margarita Rimmin's, rusty trumpets, playdo p00p et al?

A: Damn, another crossover with PlanetFeces. There has been much debate in the halls of PUF Academia about the true nature of “carls” (hot, warm or cold), and many intense debates and a few outright fights have in fact broken out about them. That is, until the bars/pubs open, then the PUF Academia concentrates on it’s specialty, mainly the science of getting sloshed.

One side note, however, should Morety “accidentally” drop the soap in the showers, or LiquiD_SiN ask you to check out his buttock tattoos, for the love of god, don’t. Just … don’t.


Q: And speaking of which, where exactly is the easter egg on DM-Peak?

A: Ah, yes, the “easter egg” on DM-Peak. For those of you who don’t know, an “easter egg” is game feature of some sort hidden by the game’s author. The best example of this is the earlier Microsoft word processor programs which contained animation, pictures and even an entire flight simulator. And people wonder why Microsoft programmers never have time to fix all the stability bugs and security leaks.

Now, there’s been some discussion as to what exactly you will find in the hidden spot in the mountain of DM-Peak. Is it Cammy’s telephone number? Zaccix’s complete collection of Iranian Polka music? Or a full sized, fold-out poster of Rev’s wife?

We could tell you, but that’s not the PUF OffTopic way. Here’s how to see it for yourself. First, contact your local dispenser of illegal narcotics and order something special. Second, find a friend to be in the room with a camera. Third, start up UnrealTournament and start a practice session on DM-Face with exactly seven bots. Then, you must take on all the bots using only the goo-gun and win with exactly seven points. Once you’ve done that, you must exit from UT and bring up a DOS prompt and type “format C:” (For Linux users, you’ll need to become root and type “rm –rf /*”). Finally, make sure that your friend gets a picture of the look on your face and sends it straight to us, so we can post it in our DM-Peak Hall-O-Fame for people who’ve followed our instructions.


Q: What is the Dopefish?

A: Did you ever hear the phrase, “They must be putting something in the water”? In Dope’s case, it’s 23 gallons of lead paint, 7 gallons cold medicine and one “Vulcan Mind Probe” added for flavor.

Q: What does it take to become an OffTopic Moderator?

A: Most boards require that their moderators be upstanding members of their online community, having shown intelligence, level-headiness and decency.

Not ours.

To become an OffTopic Moderator, you must pass through the nine tests of The Gauntlet (we were going to call it The OT Moderator Test, but it's in our contract with GameSpy (http://www.gamespy.com) to use over the top and rather silly sounding names. Something about not making PlanetDaikatana (http://www.planetdaikatana.com) feeling too bad about itself.)

The first of the nine tests involves a written essay on the subject of why you want to be a Moderator in the first place. Answers are based on content, style, grammatical correctness, and bribes passed to the judges in the form of webcam shots of TWD's naked sister. Although it is highly discouraged, using crayon is acceptable in order to make the test accessible to AOL users.

The second test involves a mud-wrestling match with LiquiD_SiN. We're still not quite sure what mud-wrestling has to do with fitness to be a Moderator, but L_S seems to enjoy grapping with slippery bodies in the mud, so, hey ...

The third test involves a detailed investigation of the Moderator canidate's prior posting history. Canidates with a consistantly OffTopic style are awarded points, with gratiuitous Goshen heads being rewarded the highest. Posts which were originally in one of the OnTopic sections, but were shunted to OffTopic due to their content do not recieve points for those posts.

The fourth test involves gay amputee amish porn. Don't ask, it just does.

The fifth test uses everyone's favorite game, "Spot the Canadian!". Canidates are taken into an irc chat room with ten unkmarked people and are asked to spot and identify the Canadians using twenty or less questions. As always, snide Candadian jokes about Curling are awarded bonus points.

The sixth test involves the now infamous "Drunken Posting" contest. Contestants are dragged down to the local bar or pub and forced to inebriate themselves. After the canidate has reached the proper level of drunkenness (usually tested by whether or not they'll willingly ask out one of CHRYSt's "clunky women"), they are sat down in front of the computer and allowed to post away. The results of which are judged both by OffTopic community and the Jamaican Ice Skating Team Judges (We get them cheap).

Tests seven through nine involve Skumboy's Mom. Trust us, you really don't want us to elaborate.

Unfortunetely, in the interest of fairness and a really good joke, the details of final test can not be revealed to anyone except for the canidates themselves. Sufice it to say that while a difficult test, it's not impossible, as witnessed by the low 40% fatality rate amongst canidates. Rumors claiming that the test involves midgets, fruit, whipped cream and the cast of "Friends" are totally unfounded. I mean, do you really think the cast of "Friends" hangs out with people like us?

After a canidate passes all nine tests of The Guantlet, they are wisked away to the secret PUF OffTopic headquarters located deep in a bunker in the bowels of Ohio, where they partake in a ceremony too terrible to tell outside of one of CHRYSt's strange nightmares.

Once confirmed as OffTopic Moderators, they are given the trappings of their high office: A copy of CliffB's Guide to Picking Up Gamer Chix, an official OffTopic TShirt that says, "I'm with Stupid", and some pocket lint taken from a coat Garrett left at the last OffTopic Office Party.

Q: Why do I see some people typing things like "\/\/3|_|_ ]-[0\/\/ 900|) 15 17?????" or "l33t" or "1 0wn3rZ j0!"?

A: Here at PUF OffTopic, we welcome all of God's Children into our little section of the interent, no matter what height, age, weight, sex, ethnicity, or relgious affiliation they belong too. Especially people religiously affiliated with a sex cult. We really welcome them.

Now one of our biggest splits amongst our OffTopic breatheren is wealth. You see, not everyone can afford the nice things you have. Some don't have the expensive car, fast connection, huge house, or complete collection of Spice Girls blow up dolls you do. Some people are poor. Damn poor. In fact, these people are so poor, they couldn't even afford a complete keyboard.

These poor, poor sods have to buy a key at a time, when they have extra money from their jobs in the potato fields of Ireland. Some have more keys than others, but they all are forced to type with what keys they've afforded to collect so far. The numbers and other ASCII characters are the cheapest, and therefore the most common to these impoverished people.

So, next time you see someone typing on about how they're "$0 D4m l33t3rZ", don't mock them, send them a quarter so they can finally buy that "S" for their sick grandma.

Q: If Taskmaster couldn't respawn, would CHRYSt have been amused?

A: We here at FAQ Central could answer your question. However, instead, we intend to distract you with an scantily clad, attractive lady and sneak out the side door.

hahaha...full size poster.

/me reminds self.........NEVER show SC a pic of your wife.

14th Nov 2000, 08:09 PM
Q: Can there be an on-topic post in the off topic forum?

A: This question is one that has plagued philosophers for quite some time. However, being the ivory tower academics they are, most of these thinkers tend to inflate simpler problems into bigger ones.

What this means is that currently, the greatest minds on the matter (namely, a couple of has-been professors and a chimpanzee named "Stella") are desperately asking themselves, "What happens if you find someone who posts an on-topic post in the off-topic section, then build a time machine from some tin cans and a piece of chewing gum, go back in time and kill the poster's grandfather. The poster would never be born, would never write the offending post that would make you go back in time and kill some random guy just because his son would have that person as his son."

Basically, these thinkers come up with these kind of questions because they know it'll keep them in a job for some time to come, leaving us mere mortals. We here at FAQ Central have put together our answer to this riddle: "Blorkenheimer". It may not be a good answer, but we're sticking to it.


Q. What is the official doughnut of the OT Forum?

A. The generally preferred donut for the OT populace is anything that's glazed, if only for the obvious plot device in our latest sophmoric joke about male sperm. Yeah, that one.


Q. Hi, I'm an attractive single woman, prone to posting to OT while scantily clad. I'm easy, not very discerning, and completely available. Do you have any tips for me?

A. Yes. You can get them in person by coming to:

Miami University of Ohio
Oxford OH 45056

If you cannot make it in person, a video tape of your scantily clad posting sessions done to a 1970's porn soundtrack may be sent to the above address.

The Dopefish
14th Nov 2000, 08:48 PM
Q: Who here likes Pokemon?
A: Although they don't like to admit it, everyone does. Its kinda like the Spice Girls-crack thing Chris Rock said at the '98 MTV VMAs.

Those that do admit it, including the Dopefish and Yellow5, are fairly strange anyway, but it's kind of hard to ignore them when the Dopefish is spamming in your face or Y5 is spreading monkey nipple porn all across the forums.

Please don't say anything about my sister. It is a complicated conflict over the basement of my house (where it just so happens that the computer is down there along with the bathroom that my sister uses). If anyone in my family saw this sort of stuff I'd be doomed.

18th Nov 2000, 04:59 PM
Q. What's up with TWD's Family?

A. It's a complicated affair, involving 55-gallon drums of industrial strength jello and thirty-seven inflatable sheep.

We would like to squash the rumors that TWD wasn't accepted as a moderator because he kept eating the crayons during the essay portion of the test. I mean, really, do you think we'd give him something like crayons? Unfortunetely, his essay, entitled "41 ways to patch an inflatable sheep using pictures of my naked Sister" was illegibly written in fingerpaint, and therefore disqualified.


Q. Is it true that some PUF members haven't been entirely truthful about their "real lives"?

A. We here at FAQ Central would like to reiterate our faith in the PUF Community. We believe that no member of our forums would ever falsify information about their background or lives in order to make themselves more interesting.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to fly my personal F16 fighter jet given to me by the Navy as thanks for saving that Destroyer from sinking, and fly to England to meet with the Queen to discuss important matters of national security. Later, I'll swing by and pick up Alopex, who waits in anticipation for my arrival so she can accompany me to the set of my new movie, staring me and Gigi Edgely.


Q. So when are you going to put up my forum avatar

A. Again, let me note that this is a FAQ, for Frequently Asked Questions. See, no "Stupid" in there anywhere. Now stop bothering me, Dopefish.

What the heck are those things in the container on top of your computer?


If you tell me those are candy, I'm going to be very, very afraid.

Oh ... and I was delayed while refueling the F16 ... I'll be over later ...

3rd Dec 2000, 07:23 PM
Q: Which is the best Operating System? MS Windows or Linux?

A: We here at PUF OffTopic Central would like to plug the next generation of OS which powers the Forum servers themselves. Yes, we’re of course talking about HamsterOS.

HamsterOS, or HOS, is the first completely organic, one-hundred percent furry Operating System available today. The TCO, or Total Cost of Ownership, for you business types turns out to be very low, with the largest point of cost being that of the food pellets.

We think after you’ve tried HOS, you’ll be pleasantly impressed by it’s blinding 0.00001MHz WheelTurnsPerSecond speed and even more so if you upgrade to a SMhP (Simultaneous Multi-hamster Processor) configuration.

Let’s look at the advantages and disadvantages:


Efficient use of family pets.
Cutest OS out there.
Impresses the chix.
Makes great chew-toys for family dog.
Upgrades consist only of going to local pet store.


Only OS you have to clean the cage for every two weeks.
Will not impress PETA member girlfriend.
Food pellets getting stuck in hard drive.

As you can see, the advantages clearly outweigh those of the disadvantages. HOS should be on the shopping list of discerning Computer Professionals everywhere.

View from inside PUF Server.

Q. Sometimes I get confused as to what exactly is going on in an OffTopic thread. Can you help?

A. We here at OffTopic Central feel your pain. I mean really, truely feel it. Because you're standing on our foot. Please get off.


Now, we all know how OffTopic threads can meander in directions unhead of by mortal men, and their paths can often only be described using 12th dimensional non-euclideon geometry.

However, in a futile attempt to warn unwary travellers of the danges ahead, we have developed the following signposts to adequately describe the horrors that lay beyond.

Plus they make great collector's items.


Most of you have come across this one alread, and it has previously been described in another question. In short, this tag is for threads that either are or should be OT. Either that, or when you'd like to give a thread a little head. You pervert.


This tag is appropriate for those threads in which everyone's keyboards start misbehaving. Or at least, that's the excuse we like to give.


Somewhat related to the previous, this tag is posted in notice of extreme l33t h4x0r sp33k. The cause of this unfortunate affliction have also been answered in a previous question.


This, of course, is a tag for threads which contain a heavy amount of alternative operating system goodness. Any attempts to refer to this as a GNU/tag will be dealt with swiftly and violently.


5th Jan 2001, 04:40 PM

Sometimes things get a little hairy when people begin "heated discussions". It starts with little comment ("GunnerX dates fat amish guys") and tends to rapidly degenerate from there ("Canadian DBA kills 9 in rampage with hotdog"). We supply this tag for those situations in which a post has or looks to be of an inflammatory nature, worthy of Slashdot (http://slashdot.org) Troll status.


Sometimes, a thread comes along that raises the eyebrows of even the most battlehardened OffTopic veterans. Usually, it's a post involving CHRYSt, inflatible sheep and a can of whip cream.


This tag simply signifies the convergence of the Unholy Southern Ohio Trinity, that of Goshen, BillyBadAss and SimplyCosmic, in one thread.


5th Jan 2001, 04:42 PM

Sometimes diplomacy just doesn't work. Talks break down, armies cross your borders, your wife refuses to listen to you. Sometimes, a thread just needs someone to come in and shout, "Oi! Shut the feck up, you bloody bastard!" except without the british accent. Well, that's what this newly acquired tag will do for you.


Gas! Gas! Gas! Danger! We have a level four leak! All personnel must immediately don biological containment suits immediately!

These are just a few of the tags that are being developed in the OffTopic ultra-secret laboratories, located inside the basement of a QuickieMart on the corner of 9th and High. We hope you use them wisely, and never in anger. Except for the Liquid_Sin one. Go wild with that bad boy.

5th Jan 2001, 05:16 PM

5th Jan 2001, 06:52 PM
You should also make a transperant one for a thread with DuX people in it!


5th Jan 2001, 11:26 PM
We need a name for these icons.....something like "thread control device" or, if you will, "tcd's" for short.

If there is a thread with improper or gratuitous (3 or more tcd's in one thread) use of thread control devices then it should be...


Seeing as SC is the originator of the tcd, he has the ultimate authority when declaring the improper use of a thread control device (an offense punishable by death).

LiquiD_SiN, that was brilliant! Now I have to update the other list..

6th Jan 2001, 12:23 PM
I think this one speaks for itself....


6th Jan 2001, 12:38 PM
Yeah I like the Zerowing one, that could be used for bad spelling and bad grammar too.

6th Jan 2001, 06:31 PM
Well in that case, I demand a "Vortex'ed" tcd. Since D-Stroya has started another Eternaty thread (involving pokemon, no doubt) this one could be used if someone makes a reference to pokemon. It would have to include a bulbasaur obviously, that being my personal favourite 'mon. I like Pokemon! Perhaps.

7th Jan 2001, 07:41 AM
A few more ideas:

-For threads with a lot of complaining: "this thread has been ARGed upon for your own protection" :)
-For the typical bragging type:"This thread has been DragonAshed for your protection" :D

7th Jan 2001, 08:16 AM



7th Jan 2001, 09:35 AM

7th Jan 2001, 10:24 AM
hehe like the dragon ash idea

14th Jan 2001, 12:06 AM
We need a "TCD" for a thread that hasn't been TCD'd yet.

14th Jan 2001, 12:24 AM
That would be too ironic, even for PuF.

And besides, it would be a lie the moment it was actually placed in a thread.
