thanks for the great template. If you have any overdue books we can overlook them just this once.----Sexualharrison MR ה TStarofdavid2.png Boobs.gif 13:32, 27 July 2007 (BST)

YRC

Nice move on the Whatmore Building! A lot of us were surprised you all could make it last, even with the dwindiling number of 'stubborn' Extinction and Eastonwood Ferals members hanging out there. We'll try to send you some help. --MorthBabid 12:11, 19 July 2007 (BST)

Gore Corps

Hey, Ghetto Cow. The redirect to the acronyms of GC currently goes to your page. We (At the Gore Corps) would like to ask if you'll agree to a disambiguation page. Thank you. --User:Axe27/Sig 02:16, 3 July 2007 (BST)

Knights Templar

Hey guys, its JD of KT and we wanted to ask if anyone from your group were available to rend assistance. It would seem that the Forces of Barhah in the form of the MOB(Militant Order of Barhah), have rallied to smash all that My group and others have built in Kempsterbank and it would be a waste to just let it all fall so easily. Hit us back on our page if you can or can't, thanks and Lachryma, you rock!

M(A)F

Ciao friends. I just got word that one of your scientists refused to revivify one of our anarchicos who is in Moletown to help you out, just because our guy is an anarchist. That's not very nice. I forget your guy's name, Dr'Lectr or something? Not a big deal, but I'm sure we don't need such unpleasantness between friends. --Luigi Galleani M(A)C | M(A)F 15:48, 18 May 2007 (BST)

My char's name is Dr'Lector- and being an asshole to someone because of their political beliefs is a big deal. Thank you for informing me of this incident, I've had one of my friends account sit me for the past few days and I should find out if he does anything stupid while using my profile. If there is anything I can do plz don't hesitate to ask me.--Moctezuma 02:49, 19 May 2007 (BST)

South Shuttlebank City Council

The Council formally requests your assistance to clear out the zombie forces, largely affiliated with the EF, that have essentially leveled South Shuttlebank. I am permitted to tell you that our scotch and rat hoard is located in the Marfell Building. Oh, and we enjoyed fighting side-by-side for the Wantmore back in the day. --Barbecue Barbecue 23:49, 9 June 2007 (BST)

Random People: Speak Here

Right here, right now

Hey everybody, Two Kings here. I don't really know anyone from GC that well (which sucks ass because I've been with you guys since lv.1.) I want to be more involved in the group, get to know my team. I also hope this message doesn't make me look like a pansy. Cheers!--Two Kings 20:28, 6 August 2007 (BST)

Our forum is lovely for getting to know people. However, you picked a really horrible time for this...--Lachryma 21:04, 6 August 2007 (BST)

I'm a maxed out survivor, currently specialized on healing and reviving... my UD-ID is http://urbandead.com/profile.cgi?id=595602. I studied medicine at the University of Freiburg, while staying in Malton to finish my year abroad as a student, the plague broke out... Now I'm stuck here - would you let me join? I prefer in-game talk, but I'll check the wiki for news...

Trigger Happy Medic looks for group...

Fight For Life

Hello! I have been trying to find a group to join and decided I would ask you guys if you think you could handle another member? I really like that yall stay on the move and go to the places that need help. It seems like that would be a lot more fun than staying in one place.--Fight for life 16:03, 10 July 2007 (BST)

Maxiie (Max)?

Hey! I'm on a forgien keyboard atm so its hard to type and ill probably make lots of errors, so exuse me for that. Anyway, I just started playing UD a couple days ago and well, im still a noob D: besides that though i've been reading tons of stuff on the wiki and everything seems pretty awesome. so far you guys have struck out to me as the best, most interesting, and coolest clan or w/e that currently exists in UD. so what im babbleing on for is to ask if i could be a part of GHETTO COW or just a chance to get to know you guys. So ya, w/E... i just hope to become part of you guys one day and have many enjoyable hours of fun roleplaying. thanks for taking the time to read this and im sure you wont find anything interesting about my profile... after all im only lvl 1, so since im to lazy to post it and i see no reason i wont. so, i guess all that i can say now is that i look foreward to knowing you guys and ya... i apologize for wasting a few seconds of your life by forceing you to read all this... trash? anyway... onto the search for the squid, penelope? ... or something, ya.. goodbye now --Maxiie 16:50, 6 July 2007 (BST)

Hey yo, been reading about Ghetto Cow and it sounds pretty kickass. I'd like to pledge my allegiance. I'm new to most of this stuff so I don't really understand it all but whatever, I'll learn. Anyway, how can I join? --Two Kings 03:20, 24 June 2007 (BST)

On your wiki page you claim to be fucking brilliant in the same sentence with a spelling error. You'll fit right in.--Bunkhumper 13:52, 24 June 2007 (BST)
Hey, play nice!--Lachryma 19:15, 24 June 2007 (BST)
Welcome to Ghetto Cow! Don't worry, I know a bunch of intelligent people who can't spell their way into a Special Olympics spelling bee. Buddha still loves you. --Skitchipoo 02:24, 25 June 2007 (BST)
You're right! I spelled egotistical wrong. And I can't think of a funny or clever way to defend myself. Oh, well--Two Kings 01:22, 27 June 2007 (BST)
The group is pretty laid back about things like spelling and clothes: both are optional. And everyone is made fun of, no matter what they do.--Bunkhumper 00:11, 29 June 2007 (BST)
Yeah, like that Bunkhumper guy. He is soooo stupid, that he'd hump a dead rabbit thinking it was a deer...Just kidding :P-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 00:18, 29 June 2007 (BST)

Random Person #884476

So these zombies are everywhere! I actually had to shoot one the other day. There I was, minding my own business, and someone starts banging on the door. I yell 'occupied, I'll be out in fifteen minutes,' but they just keep banging. I'm thinking, this guy must really need to go, so I pack my gear back up and open the door and yell 'WHAT?!?' and there's this completely rotten dude standing there, and he's so gross I almost hurl, and he yells 'Graaaagh!' and tries to grab me! Well, I really am not a fan of other people touching me, especially dead ones. Luckily there are like thousands of firearms just laying around town lately, and there was one right there in this restroom, so I grabbed it and shot him. So yeah anyway it's like no privacy anywhere, either you have to put up with dead people busting down your doors, or there's like a hundred live people whining about how granny tried to eat them. And also, it's getting to where a guy can hardly find a decent window to peek through, they're all boarded up! Well anyway I'll be looking out for you folks, I'm two burbs away so see you in a week or so? http://www.urbandead.com/profile.cgi?id=884476--Bunkhumper 17:51, 12 June 2007 (BST)

HI!!!!!!!!

Hey, Im like joining up with you my guy:844286 I dont really know how to work these wiki things, so please dont be mean

Ok, first off, make sure you sign all your posts on the wiki. It's that little button above the text box that looks like a little scribbe - the one second from the right. I' really not the one to school ya on wiki editing. But hey, welcome to GC just the same! Check out our board on the NMC! --Andre Aloisius 22:47, 1 June 2007 (BST)
Yeah, I already told him about signing stuff. And he's already on the forum. Wow!--Lachryma 22:51, 1 June 2007 (BST)
I was already a member and i didnt get on the forum that fast when we got one. The wiki is rather simple much better that HTML coding if you got questions about it post them on my talk page and ill try to help ya but theres probably other members who can teach ya better than I.--       20:40, 3 June 2007 (BST)

Hello! (from Mad Girl Kiki)

Hi all! Mad Girl Kiki here... Lachryma has invited me to apply my unmitigated pedantry (i.e. my sometimes imperfect but very patient proofreading skills) to your page. I must say, it's going to be an easy job. At first glance I see nothing much worth changing. Oh, and ...this page is gorgeous. Seriously wonderful work. Perhaps, when I finish, I will send you a picture of my late, lamented pet rat, Mozart (if I can find and scan one).

Cheers! I'll post updates below as I do the proofing (if that's okay, if you'd rather do it some other way, I am quite flexible!)--Reen 21:29, 30 May 2007 (BST)

Yes, I talked some random person into looking for typos on GC's page...and it's all for free! Yesss!--Lachryma 23:03, 30 May 2007 (BST)

INTALLMENT #1 (which took a week longer than I expected ... not that it was hard, but that stupid thing called "REAL" life kept getting in the way...

Okay … this is very good writing. Clean, succinct … and so beautifully laid-out. Yummy!

Thank you.--Lachryma 09:02, 6 June 2007 (BST)

One thing I tell any writers I work with … “I DON’T WANT TO CHANGE THE VOICE OF YOUR WRITING” (in big friendly letters)… Your style is your own, so I will be cautious to let you know what is just me being picky and what is actually unclear. The worst thing about English teachers is that they try to make people fit into a mold, when they should be encouraging people to find their own voice and speak in it…</soapbox>

Yeah, no feth. Voice is about as important as you get, with respect to writing.--Lachryma 09:02, 6 June 2007 (BST)

Looking thru this, I couldn’t be mean! It’s too well-written … there is not much to do, only a miniscule clean-up or tweak here and there. Well, see what you think!


Aight, we're currently holding the Hambridge Building in northern Molebank and we got a revive point inside the church 1 N. And...um...that's it!

(“we got” s/b “we’ve got” … unless you’re being idiomatic, yo! Course, you start the sentence with "Aight" so .. yah ... moving on!) (presumably funny note … probably the most ‘real’ proofing job I’ve done in years was to edit/proof a series of books for a publisher … some of his stuff had some slangy stuff, since it was about the lives of pro athletes … so we kind of had to set up a style guide for words like “ho” and “playa”!)

Whoops...I just forgot the contraction there....though it is idiomatic! Wow!--Lachryma 09:02, 6 June 2007 (BST)


Look, sheep are filthy, lazy, dumb herd animals that often resemble filthy, lazy, dumb herd survivors who end up killing the rest of us by their moronic actions. In light of that, we here at Ghetto Cow declare a War on Sheep, similar to the USA's War on Drugs (but we are gonna win this one). Survivors will stop acting like boring sheep and start being organized! Or so we hope.

(War on Sheep! I love it!!) Last clause of the first sentence is a tiny bit clumsy to my ear “…who end up killing the resto of us by their …” it might be better constructed as something like”

“Look, sheep are filthy, lazy, dumb herd animals that often resemble filthy, lazy, dumb herd survivors…and those survivors often end up getting the resto of us killed by their moronic actions (or lack of actions!).”
I like how it is at the moment, though that is a decent suggestion.--Lachryma 09:02, 6 June 2007 (BST)


Update: Check out the Necrotech Security Zones page! It's an excellent idea for real survivors to use!

(wait a sec … “…real survivors…”? You mean as opposed to zombie spies, or as in “characters who actually care about surviving rather than just existing as big old flock of sheep?” … I didn’t quite get it!)

I meant real survivors as those that don't act like sheep. Any ideas how to make that clearer?--Lachryma 09:02, 6 June 2007 (BST)
I can't really think of any way to do it that doesn't use parens (I overuse them, I'm afraid!), or possibly a dash--like "It's an excellent idea for real survivors--as opposed to sheep--to use" or something of that sort.--Reen 04:55, 7 June 2007 (BST)
Members feeling like having fun hang out in the hot spots of Malton (right now that would be the Molebank area).

Okay, I know what you mean, but the phrasing is a little boggling! Changing the tenses on the verbs can make it a little more clear (let me break down what bugs me … “feeling” can be …, as in “I’m feeling a little peckish” or a noun “I have a bad feeling about this.” … so when I first read it, I couldn’t untangle the first 7 or so words to make a sentence. “…feeling like having fun hang…”, wait they are feeling as though they want to have something, or are they liking having fun or or or …??) --- I can be a little slow sometimes!!!

Maybe “Members who feel like having fun hang out…” Or (better) “Member who want to have a bit of fun have been seen hanging out …” Something like that, perhaps!

You know, that has bugged me, though I couldn't quite pin down what was wrong. I'll try to change it in the near future.--Lachryma 09:02, 6 June 2007 (BST)


Also, the idea of River Tactics, or melting around a zombie horde, is supported by us. Why hold territory if the zombies just want your flesh?

(this is well-described … I’ve never heard the term ‘river tactics’ but my group, errr, ‘ma homies’ and I use such tactics in Dartside. Drives ‘em crazy!)

One more point … I don’t care, coz I’m not an English teacher, but a lot of editors would go berzerk because of the backwards-y construction of the first sentence. More conventional (which is not always better) would be something like “Also, we support the idea of River Tactics—the idea being to melt around a zombie horde rather than just standing against it.” Or, (better) “Also, GC members support River Tactics. This system employs flexibility to melt around the advance of a zombie horde, rather than standing against it…”

Of course, that last sentence would have to be customised to make it a little more … I dunno, apropos of the actual tactical system, I guess you’d say, but see … I think you get what I am saying (grin)

I getcha, but what you said sounds boooooring, but no offense, of course.--Lachryma 09:02, 6 June 2007 (BST)
none taken! Trust me, I know! :D--Reen 04:55, 7 June 2007 (BST)
This also applied to the Blackmore Building, so since it got fethed there, we hit the road to piss off the zombies. No brains here, what now, zed? What now?!

(Oh, I do so love that tactic!!!)

What’s “fethed?” Is that a typo, or some word with which I’m unfamilar? If it is the latter, make sure it’s one your readers would understand (I’m an old so-and-so, and thus not always up on the newest net-speak! I make a lot of use of UrbanDictionary, as you might guess)

Um...feth came from a series of books. But beyond that, it's an euphemism for a word I don't like to use. One which starts with the same letter. So go figure.--Lachryma 09:02, 6 June 2007 (BST)
OH! I get it ... kind of like "Frell" from Farscape. Very well! Carry on!
Since we are right next to a Mall, a good skill to purchase would be Shopping. As a defender/protector of a specific high-traffic site, a good way to level is through the use of FAK's. Surprisingly enough, it is a much better skill than *several* for fast levelling, because the search rate in drug stores is better for FAK's than anywhere else in the game. In other words, grabbing some medkits and healing random people can get you lots of XP quickly, particularly since there's more then a hundred zombies trying to eat people in Whippey. Lachryma can attest to the brilliant powers of medkits. And if you get diagnosis it gets even better!

(The paragraph is fine. The only possible suggestions are that I don’t think the first sentence needs “…right…” but that’s your call (your voice!) … the other one is tiny (and just for fun). What would you think about ramping up the drama of your last sentence by using an ellipsis, like so:

“Lachryma can attest to the brilliant powers of medkits…and if you get diagnosis it gets even better!

(kind of silly, but I think it is more fun that way … again, your voice, your call!)

Ironically enough, I didn't write that. So I'll leave Ev's voice alone.--Lachryma 09:02, 6 June 2007 (BST)
I like silly. Still Lach's call.--Ev933n / Talk PPGC 00:39, 9 June 2007 (BST)

(I had forgotten how much fun this kind of thing is (for me), so I'll keep working, it's been great so far!) (By the by ... I've been too lazy to use a spell checker thusfar, so, if you find a typo or misspelling, please feel free to give me hell baout it!) (okay, that was intentional) --Reen 02:26, 6 June 2007 (BST)

You spelled all sorts of things wrong, but I'm too lazy to point 'em out. Anyway, I put my comments throughout your large block o' text. So thank you!--Lachryma 09:02, 6 June 2007 (BST)
I don't doubt it. Just zipping back through this I saw several typos (duhhh oops! That's what you get for free, or some stuff like that)...more follows!

INTALLMENT #2 (this time I spell-checked)

“Why? becouse fast revivification of survivors is what makes the difference in sieges.”

Whoops! Typo … “Because fast revivification…” and

"...lines short no mather what, would allow us to win the siege..."

"...no matter what..."


“That is also the reason zombies usually target the nearest NecroTech Building at the same time or even before the mall.”

Some people think I use too many parens (which I can’t understand), but what would you think about …

“That is also the reason zombies usually target the nearest NecroTech Building at the same time (or even before) attacking the mall.”


“They also try to lead from the front, such as when they were the first members of Ghetto Cow in Ridleybank, but sometimes they get a bit delayed, such as at the Laimbeer Building. Death can do that, you know. But they did make it eventually!”

Okay, I found the sentence a little confusing!!! But, if it means what I THINK it means, you could split it into 3 sentences and it would be a little better … like so:

"They also try to lead from the front, such as when they were the first members of Ghetto Cow in Ridleybank. Sometimes, however, they get a bit delayed, such as at the Laimbeer Building. Death can do that, you know. But they did make it eventually!"

Now, going out on a limb (coz I really wasn’t there), you could even go for “…such as that incident at the Laimbeer Building.” That implies some kind of antics that went on, without spilling the whole tale. Now, if you wanted, the capping touch might be to make “…death can do…” a clause and connect it with a dash---people say I have a fetish for dashes, too! The final makeover:

Dag00 and Lachryma lead Ghetto Cow with strength of personality and bribes of scotch. They also try to lead from the front, such as when they were the first members of Ghetto Cow in Ridleybank. Sometimes, however, they get a bit delayed, such as that incident at the Laimbeer Building---death can do that, you know! But they did make it eventually!


• We wish we had some rats. They could carry ammo!

(no corrections, just … COMBAT RATS! Cool!!!)


Members

(I don’t want to change anything in this section … it’s too personalized and too wonderfully eccentric. You Cows would get on with us Regulators really well! The only tiny suggestion I’d have is that Mazu’s comment has an “I’ll” that doesn’t have the apostrophe, so it looks like the word for “sick”)

So far, so good...so to speak! I'm going to read the rest and I'll let you know what, if anything, I find ... a lot of it is personal recollections, posted info and the like, I probably won't change much there unless I find something confusing or confounding!--Reen 04:55, 7 June 2007 (BST)

I'm sorry, I was busy running for my life with one AP. I came back though, so if you wanna re-arrange our date, go right ahead. :)-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 03:00, 23 June 2007 (BST)
Ooookay, I wonder what you two are talking about...on second thought, I don't think I wanna know. (five on one? ewww...)--Lachryma 05:26, 23 June 2007 (BST)
I assumed she was one of the zombies in the PD the first time we cleared it. And that she was mad we totally kicked her zombie butt. But then again, I could be completely wrong. I can't sleep. Lach, will you sing me a lullaby?-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 06:30, 23 June 2007 (BST)
Ah, I get it. Sorry, Goolina, I didn't recognize you, otherwise I'd have slapped you for the hell of it. Or at least said hi. Anyway, Angel, sure I'll sing you a lullaby. Wanna hear this song?--Lachryma 06:35, 23 June 2007 (BST)
Hmmm, thats weird. Before I even saw this, I got thirsty and decided to get something to drink. I then wake up this morning, on the floor next to my PC desk. The worst part about it though, I don't think I ever got my drink. That was quite...hmmmm...different than the usual hip-hop that I'm used to hearing. Although I didn't really pay attention to the song, I don't remember hearing anything about sex, drugs, and/or violence, like what is usually played in U.S. hip-hop. A welcome change in my opinion.-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 16:12, 23 June 2007 (BST)
She was talking about your favorite thing, and you didn't listen to the song?! And you sound like you have some sort of sleeping disorder...--Lachryma 18:25, 23 June 2007 (BST)
I did up until a few weeks ago. I saw my doctor after over half a year of serious problems, and with his help I managed to solve the problem. I sure hope that Zach guy had one hell of a night. 10k is alot o' cash.-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 19:31, 23 June 2007 (BST)
Oh, that 'buy a date' thing? I think they drank champagne, went on a yacht, and ate good food or something. Sounds vaguely fun, and the money didn't hurt either.--Lachryma 19:50, 23 June 2007 (BST)
Sounds like a good idea to me. But before that, I need a scanner. I just found a piss load of artwork drawn by me and my friend from back in the day. It was buried in a box from before I moved four years ago...-- dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 20:05, 23 June 2007 (BST)

Is there anyway to find out character stats? Not the stuff like your level or skills, but things like how many people you have healed, or how many times you have died?--Fight for life 02:47, 3 August 2007 (BST)

Um...you kinda have to keep track of heals, kills, and revives, but I think as a zombie it'll tell you how many times you've died in your profile, on the left side.--Lachryma 18:26, 3 August 2007 (BST)

Me, the Cap, and Skitch (I am not intentionally leaving anyone out here... those are just the heavier hitters) seem to be a cut above the rest when it comes to lightheartedness. I have had this idea for a while, and would like to see if anyone would be in on it. I want to have a splinter cell of GC for those of us with a flair for the hilarious to do things like our super-secret-wiki-flame-war-plan-that-never-took-off-that-we-are-not-to-speak-of-in-public, and other such projects like TSFP. Class and style are awesome, and if I may be so bold, Andre pulls them off without breaking a sweat... but some of us are not really pulling our gut-wrenching hilarity weight around here, myself included. Who amongst you think you are capable of a fast-paced, quick-whited funterific world of sarcasm and hate mail? Sign Below. --Ev933n / Talk PPGC 22:06, 26 May 2007 (BST)

Are you saying I'm not funny?--Lachryma 22:55, 26 May 2007 (BST)
You are hillarious. Though you are the Czarina, where the Cap, is Cap silly. I think it really is about title and not screaming orders at people! *smile* not that I have ever disliked being yelled at by you! Also, if you think you are up to it, sign up! Ohh.. snap! I called you Out! --Ev933n / Talk PPGC 23:05, 26 May 2007 (BST)
I really miss that Cap'n...I don't think he'll be around till September or something. Anyway, I'll just supervise you crazy SOB's.--Lachryma 23:33, 26 May 2007 (BST)
You, sir, may be as bold as you wanna be. --Andre Aloisius 23:02, 26 May 2007 (BST)
So let me get this straight, you want a side group of GC that specializes in not killing or anything, but of hilarity? A dǝǝɥs ɯɐds: sʎɐʍ1ɐ! 05:06, 9 June 2007 (BST)
That is theoretically the plan.--Ev933n / Talk PPGC 18:29, 10 June 2007 (BST)

You say Ludicrous, I think of a rapper. Not what you mean?--Tosca 01:08, 4 July 2007 (BST)

No, think of the meaning of the word "Ludicrous." --Specialist290 05:15, 4 July 2007 (BST)
Anyway, the rapper is 'Ludacris', a completely different spelling.--Lachryma 05:23, 4 July 2007 (BST)
Ironically, despite the fact that I don't know much about rap, I did know that fact somehow. Scary... --Specialist290 20:49, 4 July 2007 (BST)

New Malton Penises

I have a question: You say we have a forum there? Or you say we are on the Forum there? What is it LAch?!!? --Ev933n / Talk PPGC 21:33, 25 May 2007 (BST)

Why, oh why, did you pick that heading...whatever, it livens up the place. Anyway, we have a subforum over thurr. Check it out!--Lachryma 07:32, 26 May 2007 (BST)
I like our forum on IF, but I suppose we can have one on the NMC instead. It seems very... homogenized... a little *too* homogenized... --Ev933n / Talk PPGC 19:11, 26 May 2007 (BST)

Quick question

Yeah, so I'm back. I wanted to ask what our group's policy on PKing is..? I don't mean random killing, so much as I mean destroying other PKing groups (like, at the moment, I'm pulling a "Punisher" on as many M-BEK members as I can get my hands on.), GKers/RKers (which, for some reason, isn't "illegal" technically) and basically anyone else who causes a hinderance for survivors. Is this type of PKing okay with you guys? Again, obviously I understand that I can't go around shooting people just because I want to, but I was hoping you'd be fine with "righteous" ones. --Aguyuno 11:59, 23 May 2007 (BST)

Sounds like a waste of survivor-saving, zombie-killing AP to me.--Lachryma 15:20, 23 May 2007 (BST)
Rather disappointing... --Aguyuno 12:07, 24 May 2007 (BST)
The fourth siege of Caiger was lost for two main reasons: They didn't help hold Latrobe, and the wonderful inhabitants of the mall panicked about PKers/GKers/Whatever-Kers, and spent untold amounts of time trying not to revive them, trying to kill them, and trying to make them go away. You can't. Accept it.--Lachryma 17:33, 24 May 2007 (BST)
I agree with Lachryma on this one. It's just a bit of a waste of AP to go looking for 'em. I mean, if they're bunkered down in your safehouse that's one thing, but I would heartily discourage goin' lookin' for 'em. --Andre Aloisius 20:47, 24 May 2007 (BST)
I was trying to remember what M-BEK was, and I finally did! It's those Emo Killers, and, ironically enough, their leader (ShinobiSlider) loves me!--Lachryma 06:52, 25 May 2007 (BST)

Curme Building

I know that you said y'all were holding the Curme building, Lachryma, but I when I got there all I saw was a horde of zombies- what happened? If y'all have retreated to another building can you tell me where? Or did the zombies get y'all?--Moctezuma 22:33, 15 May 2007 (BST)

They broke in and killed us. Some of them actually are us. One of us just Mrh'ed at you for a revive, incidentally. --Specialist290 22:35, 15 May 2007 (BST) (P.S. Meh, you left... Oh well, no hard feelings. I'll probably head up north and get one or something.)
Now there's new orders on the page. Amazing, huh? Anyway, Moct, you should check out our forum if you really want to get invovled.--Lachryma 00:04, 16 May 2007 (BST)
Srry, Spec, I was just trying to get as far away from Curme as possible- reviving random people (or people who I only thought were random people) wuz not one of my priorities. And how come no-one told me we had a forum? Where is it? Oh and BTW if any1 wants me to revive them just wait outside St.Jude's Cathedral.--Moctezuma 22:26, 16 May 2007 (BST)
Eh, no problem. Like they say, after you've already been dead 49 times, you feel more annoyance than shock after the 50th... or something like that. Also, as I conveniently happen to be the Admin of our forum, I have the link to it on me at all times. Don't be alarmed by some of the other content--the Ghetto Cow forum is a relatively new addition. --Specialist290 23:04, 16 May 2007 (BST)

Revive! don't kill!

Hi, this zombie needs a Revive and If you're real quick I can gets some good wacks in. If you're not quick its still good to revive me instead of kill me that way I can play meatshield in the morning instead of waiting another day.--Vista +1 22:20, 9 May 2007 (BST)

And where art thou, mister? You do know we have a revive request thingy, yes?--Lachryma 23:07, 9 May 2007 (BST)
this was more to prevent people wasting their AP attacking me, then asking for a revive.--Vista +1 18:41, 10 May 2007 (BST)
Why would we attack you and try to kill you? I know Windows Vista has its share of problems but we're not going to take it out on you. --Skitchipoo 22:20, 10 May 2007 (BST)
Where do you think the name came from? I warned you I was evil--Vista +1 15:26, 11 May 2007 (BST)
Maybe it's you that give us away to the West Becktown zombies! Witch hunt!--Lachryma 15:29, 11 May 2007 (BST)

getting drunk

#[[User:ClydeFrog|ClydeFrog]] - Terrified survivor, highly skilled at getting stuck outside heavily barricaded buildings with little to no AP. Also known as "C-Frog", his rapper name.

I saw "stuck outside" and read "drunk outside" ... I really think that should be changed! --Ev933n / Talk PPGC 18:13, 7 May 2007 (BST)

Just because you have trouble reading? I think not. Anyway, he wrote that part, so it'd be bad manners to completely twist it. Also, thank you for archiving...but it's all or nothing job! So I finished it.--Lachryma 00:18, 8 May 2007 (BST)
I only drink once I'm "safe" in a building, then I'm too drunk to resist being dragged out and torn to ittle bitty pieces (but not too small to be revived luckily) ClydeFrog 21:46, 9 May 2007 (BST)
Apparently C-Frog looked at the age-old question of "Rats or scotch?"...and he picked scotch.--Lachryma 22:08, 9 May 2007 (BST)
C-Frog picked right!--Ev933n / Talk PPGC 19:05, 12 May 2007 (BST)

Spring Cleaning?

OK, seriously--considering that this talk page is starting to get pretty fethin' huge, isn't it about time that we archived everything again? --Specialist290 04:25, 7 May 2007 (BST)

I was thinking about it. But I'm waiting for it to get to 70 kb. Cuz I like that number.--Lachryma 04:34, 7 May 2007 (BST)
We could make a sweepstake out of it. I'll take 64KB cause, nostalgia.--Vista 12:10, 7 May 2007 (BST) EDIT, and we're already over it... djeez. I never lost this fast ever--Vista 12:12, 7 May 2007 (BST)
You know, you can just put two of ' to make italics. So, ''Aaaagh, I lost a bet!'' gives you Aaaagh, I lost a bet!, and it's easier to use then that <i></i> stuff. Anyway, since you lost your bet in record time, you have to go buy me a corset. Chop chop.--Lachryma 15:24, 7 May 2007 (BST)
mhm, You sure? I'll need to ask your measurements for that. and that could easily be misconstrued as an inappropriate question. Not to begin over the follow-up questions like do you want one with or without red lace? and other possible embarrassing questions.--Vista 15:41, 7 May 2007 (BST)
Here I hope this is fine as well.
Pretty Ratty.jpg A rat, and it's for you!
Vista has given Lachryma a rat in order to prevent all the ackward questions that giving a corset brings with it
You might want to check spelling, grammar and syntac.--Vista 16:00, 7 May 2007 (BST)
It's really quite polite to give a lady her rat via her talk page. Also, you spelled 'awkward' and 'syntax' wrong. Anyway, it appears Caiger's Victoria's Secret is fresh out of corsets (and I can't decide on lace), so you're in luck. Fetch me a Soviet flag. And thanks for the rat!--Lachryma 00:18, 8 May 2007 (BST)

The templates on the archive page have gone breaky-breaky. I recommend splitting into separate pages, if you care. --Ducis DuxSlothTalk 03:37, 8 May 2007 (BST)

Oh, and why were you looking at the archive page? Huh? Huh?! But yeah, yeah, I'll try to fix it.--Lachryma 03:42, 8 May 2007 (BST)
Well, I didn't quite fix it, but oh well...--Lachryma 03:48, 8 May 2007 (BST)
Oh, I have my reasons.... Har har! --Ducis DuxSlothTalk 14:52, 8 May 2007 (BST)
Stupid signature race. I'm tempted to break it again.--Lachryma 15:11, 8 May 2007 (BST)
lol, it's fun, you should try it for a bit! (and my sig was already on this page, so nyah!) --Ducis DuxSlothTalk 15:14, 8 May 2007 (BST)
I've already stated my objections. I bet some other GC members would love to do this, bug them if you feel like it.--Lachryma 15:17, 8 May 2007 (BST)
wow, you really don't like this, do you? --Ducis DuxSlothTalk 15:18, 8 May 2007 (BST)
Notice how your grammar is suffering. Next it'll be your ability to solve simple problems. Finally, you'll...go to sleep!--Lachryma 15:21, 8 May 2007 (BST)
Hmph. So I missed a capital. I'm tired, very sick, and have not had my coffee! So expect my grammer to suck a little bit! Plus Firefox spellcheck has not been working for a while... dammit! --Ducis DuxSlothTalk 15:23, 8 May 2007 (BST)
Ick, I'm sick too. Is annoying. And those are all symptoms of larger things, like participating in a sig race without promoting Ghetto Cow on all those talk pages!--Lachryma 15:28, 8 May 2007 (BST)
I'm sorry about my inactivity with GC. I'll get more into it, soon. Promise. However, I really do rather not want to visit your forum until you get a dedcated one. Like the SSZ, not just a sub-forum. Yours is all garish and not clear as well. Heh, sorry for being so critical in one sentance! --Ducis DuxSlothTalk 17:16, 8 May 2007 (BST)
Are you saying that there's something wrong with my forum, Dux? ;) I know it's not a dedicated UD forum, but then it's not really dedicated to anything in particular anyway. And besides, you haven't even seen our RPG section!

...All right, enough of the shameless plugging for members for my forum. Now, on to business! --Specialist290 21:34, 8 May 2007 (BST)
Your forum is pretty jacked. Especially the part when you tried to get us to talk to icky anime types. Do I look I need that kind of attention? Ever? But anyway, it gets the job done.--Lachryma 00:50, 9 May 2007 (BST)
Hey, not all of 'em are icky anime-types... And I'm not referring to only myself, either. --Specialist290 00:34, 10 May 2007 (BST) (P.S.: And there are also "Scifi" and "Games" sections...)
Blah blah blah, it works, Dux is just tripping on 'shrooms and whining. So are you, maybe, but that doesn't matter. As long as you don't try to get us to post in the rest of forum again...--Lachryma 00:44, 10 May 2007 (BST)
*grumbles to self* Meh... That was kinda the point of getting you guys on there (so I could boost the forum's activity a bit), but I guess if you guys want to stay on your own little island and not join the BBQ beach party on the mainland shore, then that's up to you... I shall speak of it no more here unless prompted. --Specialist290 00:52, 10 May 2007 (BST)
Hey! you nrver said there would be food that changes the matter completely becuase weak minded males like myself are distracted by food very eas... Hey is that a steak you got?!?! ...O wait what was i saying?--       17:53, 10 May 2007 (BST)

Would have never guessed! Survivors Against Zombies --Ducis DuxSlothTalk 17:19, 8 May 2007 (BST)

Do they really need the "What is Survivors Against Zombies?" section? It's too bad that they don't make fun of themselves on their Wiki page, cuz ironically that would probably give them more legitimacy. Man, all this hatin is making me hungry! I'm gonna go eat some more hater-tots. --Skitchipoo 21:35, 8 May 2007 (BST)
Well, I'm not against zombies. Neither is Ghetto Cow. We just keep lead in their diet, duh. That page is hateful.--Lachryma 00:50, 9 May 2007 (BST)
There nothing wrong with zo,bies as log as there on a short leash lol--       17:57, 10 May 2007 (BST)

Bug

I had a bug, I want to see if ZS or anyone else notable in the wiki knows where it might stem from...

Since your last turn:

  • Seth O'Brian hit you with a fire axe for 3 damage. (36 minutes ago) (Scent lost.)
  • DMongoose extracted a DNA sample from you. (28 minutes ago) (Scent lost.)
  • Frank Dufresne shot you with a pistol for 5 damage. (18 minutes ago) (Scent lost.) ...and again. ...and again. ...and again. ...and again. ...and again. ...and again. ...and again. ...and again.
  • Frank Dufresne stabbed you with a knife for 2 damage. (17 minutes ago) (Scent lost.)
  • You took a Headshot from Frank Dufresne the Zombie Hunter! You will need to spend an extra 5AP to stand up. (17 minutes ago)
  • You heard a distant groaning 3 blocks to the east and 4 blocks to the north. [97-0] (10 minutes ago)

You cannot detect any members of your horde nearby.

You scent a group of zombies two blocks to the north and two to the east.

A thick pall of decaying bodies carries from two blocks to the north and two to the east.

You are dead.

Notice how a corpse can Scent Death. --Ev933n / Talk PPGC 05:47, 5 June 2007 (BST)

There's a reason we have the Bug Reports page, you know... --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 05:49, 5 June 2007 (BST)
