Iíve voted for a major like this. Makes sense. You work out all the people youíd possibly want on office and order them.  We saw a terrible person once win as the incumbent had been there a long time and had baggage with some people. The one who just scraped in was horrible

Just finishing Santa Clarita diet season 2. I enjoy the comedy, the silliness and the situations they get into

Finally got round to buying Rise of the Tomb Raider.  I might even play it at some point.

Iím part way through my second play through on the toughest difficulty. Itís worth a 2nd go through. If you die you respawn at last campfire on this difficulty. That can be a bit frustrating if you falll in spikes but I donít mind.

Currently Iím in hospital, just had some more surgery so wonít be gaming for a bit.

You need to make your steam profile public temporarily and then remove and add the link to it again to trigger the import.

Or you keep your steam profile on public as you want achievement tracking websites to keep up to date with your progress ;)

Back to the topic I have an account on the https://backloggery.com/ which looks more colourful at least .. not sure which is better functionality wise

I've been doing some Rise of the Tomb Raider after 14 months of not playing.  I finished the campaign, go to 100% game completion and now i've started on Ultimate Survivor.  I think one of the hardest bits is  you can only save at a camp fire.  I've already fallen into a spike pit on level 1 and had to redo things. 

So far its fun and not annoying.

Of course this forum is much quieter in D2 than 10 years or more ago, but as Ssssith said, we know this and dealt with it.  The SPF mainly views things as the last vestage of humanity stoping a zombie virus from killing off the last humans.

Some of the previous mods left without a goodbye (Hrus, Cattleya).  In the vacuum, Thyiad got the job.  Overall for a long time she did a pretty good job, there were some things I didn't personally agree with, but these things happen.  However in more recent times its gotten out of control.

She appeared to go a bit postal, and it appeared she had left forever.  There was a lot of shock, but also HOPE.  Hope that other mods who viewed and posted could do a few things. that CHANGE might be able to come by what the users want to do, what they want to talk about.  5 months later she is back, the Iron fist comes down and a big can of NOPE is opened up.

We learnt somewhere along the line she had been having a real rough time in real life and certain people had been working to kill her reputation online.  Naturally she was not in a good place.  Now these are horrible things and no one wants to go through this, or see anyone go through it.  Its not always obvious this is the reason behind people's behaviour online.

Back to stuff that happens in game, and as people learn more about doing stuff in game, and how that works.  People were finding new/exciting things!  They wanted to be able to talk about it, have screenshots, guides etc.  Thyiad on the other side didn't have time/energy to game and wasn't really in the mood for it.  It must have seemed like a lot of "this is why you can't have nice things"

For 5 months it appears the SPF was turning a corner, that there could be some consensus based discussion about why people choose to spend their free time on a hobby.  Instead it was basically, follow these rules or GTFO, and if you GTFO, there is NO where that will survive, or is a decent place.

Here are some examples:
Don't mention voldemort! https://www.diabloii.net/forums/threads/a-reminder-about-non-fam-mods.960596/

Straws breaking the camels back:
https://www.diabloii.net/forums/threads/pre-lod-trading-no-longer-accepted.950867/

Basically a "screw you guys, I'm leaving"
https://www.diabloii.net/forums/threads/not-the-spf-i-knew.950868/ 
That particular nugget of a locked thread spawned a different thread https://www.diabloii.net/forums/threads/the-spf-i-know.952249/  I got really annoyed that it was a very subjective view on how things were, and the only way to do things correctly.


These days Maxicek is now a mod, doing a fine job, is active, playing and contributing.  But the rules/right way to do things is still an issue for many.
