Dark0ne, you are doing a great job! Posted Image
This site is so amazing, and I don't know how many hours(days) I've spent surfing through it, and still I find new stuff. But then again, how many days haven't you spent on this site^^

And for the "lack of updates" - Don't listen to that! In my opinion, it's the perfect amount of updates, not too much and not too little. And besides, when it goes a little while before a new update, the site feels so fresh and exciting, while if there was updates all the time it would just bothersome, as things would change all the time. So, it's perfect! :D

And Pushkatu, you should get Premium - It's totally worth it! Posted Image


EDIT: Oh, and I forgot one thing in the praising of the Nexus: Moderators, you are doing a fantastic job as well! Posted Image

EDIT2: Dark0ne, what is that new thing: AP & AP Rank?

No one did what you've done and most likely no one will ever come close to your performance mayby forever.

Thing is, some headhunter is likely to find this administrative virtuoso, who incidentally successfully completed a degree course while building this complex of sites (starting at the age of 15, FFS), and offer him mucho moolah to run one of their clients' big train sets. I really hope these sites can generate enough income & cash to avoid that.

    Like a trained monkey. Without the training.

Quick, everyone sign up a premium account! We can't let Robin Scott get hired away!

Multiplayer games/mods are so distracting. I want to play more fallout 3, but "just one more round of counter strike" kicks in.

Ha, I love this blogpost!

First we get alinea's of your technical duties, but I can just tell the gaming blood hasn't left you yet when you place the most important thing last:
bedtime stories -I mean games.

I've just touched the tip of a lesson package that holds a few topics you described, and ALREADY I'm feeling in way over my head.

Sometimes these websites feel like there's an entire team per Nexus that's assigned to oversee and rule...well, for lack of a better metaphor.

One question:
Does Assassins Creed 2 really help to get you to sleep at night?
These summers are a real [profanic] and if you can assure me that AC2 works as a lullaby like in "ye olde times" (thats about twenty years ago :P), I'd be very glad to know.

I guess RDR just fires me up too much for me to sleep.
