Well, with the current state of MTGnews and many of our members banned, I've created a "safety" thread here just in case. If you belong to the called, or post in our thread on a regular basis, please feel free to post here.
rianalln, I think you can be the 12th member, because Cyan79 is out. (He's not only not coming here, and not only staying at MTGnews, but he's becoming ADMINSTRATOR on Raa's team of dark mages! Since many of us are banned at MTGnews, this is our home for now.)
I'm glad to have a place to post. We don't want our Clan to die off. We need to make sure someone who still has an active account on News puts the link to this one in their sigs, and then posts in the clan thread pointing out the link. (Don't link directly in a post, you could get in trouble.)

...wha?? I saw that he was still moddin' away, but I thought that was just out of respect for the remaining community. I don't understand why he would want to further entrench himself in MtGN while it is in 4UU float-U-for-Force-Spike mode. I plan on haunting the old clan thread, even if it's just me going "woooo... WOOOooo..." every couple of days.
Weird weird weird. I will still defer to Cyan's being in the clan until the Clan takes action. I guess I kinda like being unofficial + I definately like being #13
Does this mean I'm sleeping with the enemy? Or like..a team of enemies? Go easy on me, there's alot of you I still want to hang out with y'all, I think...I'm gonna go ahead and post on this board, too. Just in case things don't work out at news, I don't want to burn my bridges with people that I actually care about personally.
Damn that old mtgnews, damn them for making this power struggle particularly damaging to our clan. Being one of the long-time members (one of the longest members actually...) I was mildly (read, mildly=extremely) pissed at the ban-hammer dropping on Seds and R_E... I mean, I understand why, but at the same time, this sort of thing can't just happen behind closed doors.
Bah... enough *****ery for now.
I must say, I had an absolutely wonderful New Years, went to that party with Lindsay, after which we wound up at my place.
Hell yeah! Get everyone over here! I'm going to post an official thread of retirement once we get the vB forums here set up and running. We might not have much of a front page, but it will all get better; we have a very ambitious list of things to do!
I'll be here permanently sometime by the end of this week. SS is just..utterly untolerable. I honestly want to punch him in the face for accusing R_e of being a thief. Which is weird..because I'm not violent at all. The guy just makes my blood boil beyond explanation. I have some..loose ends..to tie up, but I can't just be affiliated there anymore. I'll be around alot more, soon. I want to scream...and this all happened last night. I'm still pissed. What a ******* tool. Maybe, if I'm lucky, they'll give me my Moderator position here..being a Moderator was my pride and joy, honestly. But if not..whatever.
Wow...this came out of left field....I mean I knew that there were some problems and that some things needed to be fixed, but I never thought that MTGnews would disban the way it did. Blast Raa for his unfulfilled promises. DG must be rolling in his grave!
I go where the clan goes. Most my posts are in the clan thread anyway. I have plenty of time in the new year since I am still unemployed and my interview today didn't go to well.
I better get a job fast or I wont be able to go to Brunei in May. I guess I could use my Credit card for it....but Credit card debt sounds rather scary to me. I'm already at a point where I need to use a cash advance on my credit card to pay the minimum on my credit card. I'd hate to have $5000 more on it to try to pay off. ($5000 means multiple credit cards maxed out.)

And I guess that I'm a lucky one for the truth of what I know. For my heart had not denied me and I have somewhere to go. I shall never be a prisoner of steel and glass and stone. If I leave, I will return again to my Rocky Mountain home.
well thats good cyan m8 , but Why the sudden change ?
SS accusing Jeff and Daron of being thieves was just..inexcusable. It's clear that he doesn't acre about the community or the opinions of the community..he just says whatever the **** he wants to, regardless of how true it might be...I mean..like anyone would even, for a minute, believe that Daron and Jeff would just spend that money..it's just stupid...he doesn't care if 'news has a future or not, and I simply can't tolerate that. News is basically the only reason that I get online anymore..so I'll just have to shift that focus to here..unless there are some miraculous drastic changes in the next few days
Well, I can't promise anybody mod positions but I'll definitely consider you for T2 mod when the time comes. As long as you have no qualms working under Kuberr (who's actually not as bad as you think). And myself, of course.
Anyways, It would be great if the clan shifted to here. I mean, we've got everybody on board (save stingy BD), but we need to do something about Loki, Monkey God as he has not posted in a long time.
hehehe... That stealing comment was so stupid I had to go get an avatar made about it...
Daggertooth... Credit Card debt is definately something to avoid. The rates hammer you quite hard, and if you don't have the money to pay back it gets even worse... I have a friend with over 10 grand in debt. It's really tragic, she can't buy ANYTHING any more, because if she does the credit card companies immediately come to her and start hounding her about her debts... Ditto with getting a loan to buy a car so she can go to work. Nobody gives a loan to someone with that much debt... So she has about an hour bycicle ride to work every day now, instead of about a 10 minute drive... She's working with debt consolidation agencies, but from what she tells me, about a years worth of debt is likely going to take her the next 5-10 years to pay off...
I was told today that this kid on my team called 911 twice this morning and hung up both times. They called back and his dad answered. The reason the kid called 911? He got an erection and didn't know what to do. I wish I was making this up.
I am jonnyjonski. I have been around the community since 2000 and registered at that other place in 2001. I usually read what people write about in the lobby and rumors. I occassionally ask about a ruling but not to often. I have been playing Magic for 10 years now and have a pretty low tournament rating due to the fact that I never use decks from the net. I love to play with R/G LD but my favorite deck is by far a Megrim deck with Urza's Guilt as the kill condition. I have traded with most of you at one time or another and aften speak my mind....even when I'm wrong(which does actually happen).
I'm an old fart(33) with a wife and 3 kids. I'm getting my 9 year old son into the game and am very excited. I play only in PTQ's and GPQ's with an occasional FNM thrown in when I can get away from the family for an evening. I have won a few FNM's but almost always get the "nice guy" prize. I like watching the newbie kids come in with their erratic decks and try to give them a way to improve it without doing it for them. That's actually fun to me.
Monday thru Friday I am on MSNMessenger 8am to 4pm east coast time so feel free to contact me during those times for what ever.
I just wanted to introduce myself and let you guys know that I have always been interested in your clan but with the move and the new boards and a fresh start....why not give ya'll a holla. so.....WHATUP!?!?

Anyways, I was wandering about my daily runs, and noticed this thread, one that I once tried joining (What a *fun* experience, wasn't it? :p) and I figured as I know the majority of you through forums like these, and a few of those as good friends, I'd pop in and see if you all would be willing to accept a friend into the mix?
