    The Week in Review (6/6-6/12)

    Greetings SPF! Another week has passed for our fine forum.

    We've had a bunch of newcomers...
    A master of obscure (here anyway :lol: ) acronyms, omgwtfbbqpwned
    qaws has also arrived here, more of a trader personality it seems
    HarleyWulf has emerged from lurkdom, you can give him a nice welcome
    Kirbybabo has changed his focus to Single Player
    Rayschaller made a good choice this week too...
    Reformed Vision has err...reformed his vision of BNet
    See, classic games never die! It's Tetris!
    tehbirdman has gone the opposite way of the dodo, and we're here to welcome him now...
    Limpo has boldly entered our lives
    MFOMOFO is a new Brazilian here

    And on a sadder note, TenYearsGone will be less visible around here...

    addicted2macs has finished more of his forum-famous artwork, this time for the Bad Blood PvP tourney.
    Mankey's coalition of eight characters using class-specific sets is finished, with a great screenie included. maxgerin has advanced upon a similar quest.
    Mordalles has submitted an entry for his own art contest
    JJ has asked an important question for our D2 lives. How long will they last?
    Probably not the first time for a truly classic question...Who's your favorite superunique?


    Mats and Pats this week:
    Sabrina, the Meteorb Sorc
    Finderess, Nova/Orb Sorc (finished 1.09)
    Halciet, an IK Barb
    Tyreal, the Avenger

    And Nightfish has another Guardian. As if that's some sort of surprise...

    Big week for OT posts as well
    How old are you? http//forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=354958
    Freedom...from school!
    AE has gained another uhh...level :D
    somethingsin wants to know where you are from. So put it in your profiles or check it out there
    Bad D2 jokes...

    And finally, last week's WiR...Thanks Nacaa

    I thought there was one more new member but I can't find them now...sorry if I missed any. Some of the links are pretty much guaranteed to be wrong too. And if I don't say anything then FB and Serdash will beg to be included...

    Finally, if you need help, just
    Yes, I am mean. That was taken out of context. Have a good week everybody!

    Good job, I'm really digging these review threads. Especially now as I've taken to be sick at least half a week per week. :lol: Also: Woot! I made the news!

    Nice writeup! :thumbsup:

    I haven't been around so much this week, mainly because San Andreas for my Xbox is taking too much time but now I am filled with new info of what have happened.

    Thanks. Oh and I got mentioned! :D

    Man, I thought for sure I'd make it into one of these things after my birthday and all, but I supposed I'm destined to just remain out of it.

    Just a thought, but how about each week in review be stickied until the next one is out? Not sure if that's been asked before but I'd deem it a good idea.

    Sounds like a good idea to me NF. Not that many people seem to reply to this thread so it goes pretty quick to page 2, 3, etc... Alot of people read the Week in Review though.

    :thumbsup:

    Yeah, that's pretty much what I was thinking. It's not really a thread to reply to unless you're a spammer like me... Or an attention whore like dashy who always demands to be included. Well, at least next week he'll be in with his zod rune fo shizzle so that might finally be the end of his nagging. :D

    Something like that, I thought for sure my double matting would make it here but I guess it was too buried. On the other had with all the posts that come out of here it sounds like quite a bit of work to go through a week and look at it all.

    EDIT:
    @JicamaEater - I can't complain cause its more work than I would want to do.

    Yeah, I'm sorry that I kind of messed that up. I went all the way back to the last post before Nacaa's previous Week in Review, which I thought would be enough...sorry to anything else important that I missed.

    Dunno, maybe if whoever does that just starts collecting the links the day the review is passed it would be easier not to miss stuff. And probably less work too than doing it all in one day.

    My method (for getting all the newbies esp.) is to look at all my recent posts, since I make it a point to welcome all the newbies and it shows the date on the posts, it's easy to hit everyone. The other stuff, I have to dig a bit more, but I try to rememeber what's going on that week when it's my week. Speaking of which, fb, I belive it's your turn since no one else has stepped up to the plate, please confirm your willing and ableness.

    As for stickie-ing it, that was discussed when we first started this, and basicly thrown out. It'd be like making the EMB, DooL or daily a stickie. (not to mention, the thread stickied would need to be changed every week, and our poor mods are a bit run over when we have a joining frenzy as it is.)

    Oh, is this what fame feels like? I made it to the Pat/Mat list. :cool:

    What's with the inrush of all the new converts? New runewords taking a toll in B.Net? Anyway, welcome to all the new additions to our forum! Enjoy your stay. :thumbsup:
