A Toast to RD -- Our Final Memorandum
 
A toast? Final memorandum? If you are confused, it means you haven't been RDing lately and have contributed to it's demise. Those of you have stuck it out till the bitter end know, know all too well, that RD's glowing golden glory days are long since past. We've moaned and complained about RD's death many a time, but all those times were lively as compared to the slumbering carcass the Heathen Islands have now been reduced to.

RD now lives only through the occasional snarky post or unwin comment, and it pains me to say, but the jovial romps we remember are now over. So here, we can make a toast, an eulogy for the special little forum that made 2006 and a portion of '07 so sweet and memorable and awesome and kickass.

Commence:

DarthAve 07-14-2007 10:29 PM

Damn, well, it's not my fault. I've been really busy trying to get this fanfic done, and I'm not doing so well. I mean, Soda and Ritz just has sex! and it's the 6th chapter! Well, there may be a comeback of old members. God this is really sad, there's just nothing to post about and nobody to reply to. Oh man, this sucks.

Hallucination 07-14-2007 11:11 PM

:spinnaz:

That summarises everything you need to know about RD. Savez?

DarthAve 07-14-2007 11:26 PM

You're wrong Hallucination. There was so much more...Mayhem, go get the timeline!

Hallucination 07-14-2007 11:27 PM

Timelines don't matter, it summarises the spirit of this place.

Jae Onasi 07-14-2007 11:38 PM

More likely it's going through the same up-and-down posting counts that happen in every forum this time of year--summertime is slow everywhere. People are just recharging their insanity. :D

itchythesamurai 07-14-2007 11:41 PM

I'm going to choose to listen to Dr. Mom, she usually knows what she's jiving about.

Hallucination 07-14-2007 11:49 PM

That's usually only for what brand of prune juice is the best. o_Q

**** I almost missed it. This is the one year anniversary of when we first busted in here and rubbed our e-pricks on everything.

Samuel Dravis 07-15-2007 01:45 AM

So do we get free stuff, like t-shirts? T-shirts would be awesome. Still, I wouldn't give up on snarky posts entirely.

Marking your territory, eh? :xp:

KingCheez 07-15-2007 04:20 AM

I feel bad for the '06s and beyond, though. We've gone from a thriving community hyped as hell to a hundred excited people squealing over their copy to a large yet incredibly close family to a couple of good friends.

To a dead little lump of Psychonaut fans who just don't care.

What a shame. Psychonauts gives me such happy nostalgia feelings to play in the summer.

RD2 didn't help and RD2 seems to be dying on its own.

JoeDoe 2.0 07-15-2007 04:29 AM

Oh stop with the Emo crap already *puches everybody to bring them back to their senses*

RD will never as long as there are n00bs crazy enough to join


DON'T GIVE UP HOPE!

KingCheez 07-15-2007 04:35 AM

There AREN'T noobs crazy enough to join, Psychonauts is out of print, nobody is buying it on steam.

JoeDoe 2.0 07-15-2007 04:39 AM

Meh, they will come for sure

DarthAve 07-15-2007 01:19 PM

We just need Jack Black to talk about Psychonauts! You know what, I'm E-mailing him if he has an available e-mail.

Davinq 07-15-2007 01:55 PM

Da big list
 
Pulled up the timeline myself, here's the actual list though.

- Halloween 05 - Where Cheez, Purple, Smon, and myself were all Psychonauts characters for trick or treat.
- Ninja Madness - On 7-06-06 the Pirates Versus Ninja thread wsa created. At first general opinion favored the pirates, but then swayed to ninjas. On 11-03-06 at the request of some people, the hterad got stickied by Smon. Talk became increasingly biased, so the Ninja Appreciation thread was created (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=171719). Later on, talks of a ninja for prez in 08 began and the Ninja for 08 thread was made (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=172654. The fictional ntity, Ninja ForPrez was created.
- Princess Dark (aka- B****face) - The manical and insipid little brat that descended onto LFRD to pester her ex-friend, Zelda. At first Dark acted sweet, but when Darth Ave extended out an olive branch Dark slapped it away and called Ave a 'whore'. This resulted in a forum-wide flameware between Dark and Ave with the inclusion of everybody else to a lesser extent to aid Darth and aid Zelda (who had given up before the fight began, though the support helped her pick up steam). The threads that were desicrated include the Rant Thread, The Talk About Anime You Like Thread and ended in the inaguration of the Fight Thread. Dark and Zelda said they'd fought over a boy, though the truth was that Zelda finally told her 'friend' that she was a whore for the way she treated any and all boys with an interest in her. Dark left at some point. Though it appears she is back because she has nothing else to do. (Cont’d by Ave) Then, late one night. Darth had enough and PM'd Thrik about Dark's evilness. He showed interest in this devil spawn and asked for proof of the evilness. Ave included the links to the entire war, the reason why the fight had come, her vendetta thread, and why I retalliated so badly. Thrik saw it was bad enough, and Princess_Dark was banned from lucasforums. Than we had a parade like at the end of star wars episode 1 with guggans and jedi, and Halo took the glowing ball thing from Ave and yelled 'PEACE!' Than the credits rolled and we lived a happy ending.
- Darth's 'Death' - One day, Darth Ave simply stopped posting. Her custom title read 'dead'. This spurred some controversy and Smon started a 'Darth Ave: Dead?' thread concerning her departure. Many thoeries were raised, most ridiculous, a few in the realm of possibility. At last, Darth came back and admitted to being in a crummy mood and simply being fed up with LFRD and didn't feel like posting. Something along the lines. In turn, another thread of unknown name was posted about her return.
- Darth_Ave/Ross (aka Poopdog) Drama - Simply put, Darth and Ross nearly get e-married (in the Scars thread). The plans were in progress, however it came to the attention that Ross was probably older than Darth. When someone asked his age, Ross responded by calling the marriage off. Apperantly being an internet pedophile was unfathomable to Ross, and while being a fugitive on the run would be interesting, he noted, it wasn't a path he was willing to take. In turn, Darth was devastated and became depressed. The girls on RD attempted to console her and offered her other possible suitors (St. Jimmy, Smon, Halo, Das Mole, and Davinq). She refused and is currently still upset about the entire affair. As of now, Bitchface's return is still only a rumour. While some plans to scar her for life and scare her away would be helpful, an RP or something like that isn't neccesary until she makes herself public. She is really only amusing, not much of a threat at all.

I was just looking back at the SCARS thread, and it turns out Mayhem was the one who spilled the beans on my age...

gee...thanks.

Das Mole 07-15-2007 04:06 PM

its not my fault we're practically comatose.
i blame it on the pseudo-rulez.

Ray Jones 07-15-2007 04:49 PM

good gawd all this after I finally got a pixel shader to actually play The Most Excellent Game Psychonauts! ;_;



When Yufster hears this, there will be trouble.

We got our copy last week on amazon, and after I get my Neverwinter nights 2 fix, I'll be playing that. They might not be making more of them, but there are still plenty of copies available.

Klia 07-15-2007 07:31 PM

I have to say, I actually thought it went down after we stopped talking about Psychonauts because that's kind of the reason why I joined.

Doesn't mean I still don't suck whatever enjoyment I can get out of this place, and there sure is a lot to suck.

itchythesamurai 07-16-2007 03:07 AM

I think I speak for us all when I say that Ray Jones is the sole reason why there is a lot to suck. Ladies, you know what I'm talking about. That's right, irreverent posting.

Ray Jones 07-16-2007 04:47 AM

Where itchy is right, he is right!

Miss_Mayhem 07-16-2007 08:42 PM

I hope it's just a summer lull, but man ... looking at that thread brings back memories, and the gentle glow of fond nostalgia.

As my memorandum, I shall say this:

I joined RD after about a week's worth of lurking, finding the place noteworthy. I was an initiated newbie, and now, I am on the modsquad - not really doing anything, but on the modsquad nonetheless. RD was a happy slice of my life, a notable part of 7th grade. For the first time, I realized you could make genuine friends over the internet, and I can't say with much confidence I have garnered friends like you guys through other websites on the same medium. You RDers are perhaps the few and only people I would meet in real life in a heartbeat - and that likely isn't possible, but our community forums did a great job of providing outlet for the collective wish-fulfillment.

Let it be known, that RD was delightfully wacky and loony, that it holds a place in my heart, and that I will miss it and it's forumers. So now, I bid RD adoui, and may it rest in peace.

That is SO TRUE. Too bad that between the post-Bitchface and ModSquad campaigns the bonds we made slackened a bit.

Samuel Dravis 07-17-2007 01:16 AM

I am curious, are you people really this pessimistic all the time or is it just me.


:3headed:

JoeDoe 2.0 07-17-2007 10:59 AM

^My thoughts exactly

DarthAve 07-17-2007 01:15 PM

We can try and have fun. I mean, remembering the good old days. We should go out with a huge ass bang, that's what I decide! and if this is the end of RD, I'm throwing a kickass moon party! with blackjack! and hookers! (not seriously, that was just a futurama refrence) There'll be dancing and speeches, and fun, and everybody will come! END OF RD PARTY THREAD WILL COME!

& Klia, I'm always up for a Psychonaut discussion. Remember P.S.Y.C.H.I.C?

Miss_Mayhem 07-17-2007 05:56 PM

Pessimistic? Why - for the most part we are sunny and happy. The death of the most awesomest forum EVAR should make you somewhat sad, especially if you were around as much and as long as some of us have been.

JoeDoe 2.0 07-17-2007 07:22 PM

Why are people turning EMO? like RD would die, yeah right like THAT WOULD HAPPEN....sheesh

Jae Onasi 07-17-2007 11:53 PM

Are you guys PMSing or something? Lordy, I haven't seen this much depression since my cat died.

Oh, itchy, I wouldn't know anything about Ray's sucking, not a thing.... :D Ray, Jimbo suggested interest on education of Plan DDD.

First, I am PMSing, but that just makes me feel bloated...and gassy.

Could you jog my memory about PSYCHIC? I can't recall. I think that was my ded period.

Get it...period?
