Out of the Blue

Today is the official ninth birthday of Blue's News, as it was on this day in 1996 that the site moved to its own domain. This makes the original site (blue's 3D House of 3D Carnage/blue's Quake Rag) something over 10 years old, but I'm not exactly sure of the launch date beyond that. As is always the case, contemplating such commemorations fills me with gratitude, I would like to thank all of you who have visited and contributed... There are far too many folks from over the years to thank individually, I can only hope that you all know just how vital you have been to the success of this site.

Birthday Links! Thanks Mike Martinez and Ant.

Happy 9th from a longtime lurker (although I can't say how long... but I would guess 8 years).

the bear paw is pretty cool, and in line with chatbear, I assume that was intentional.

Okay, I don't know what I was thinking last night. Must have been tired, but I somehow thought that was a dog paw, which is why I chose that emblem....

Might be on GW later today, so if you see any one of my characters online, give me a holler.

Not wanting to blame nin now that I have a valid reason to ,
Creston is still good for blame, though!


Well, since I don't even PLAY guild wars anymore, I think my objection to the awful capes really doesn't count for much, now does it?
So if you guys are obsessed with getting one of those hideously DIRT UGLY capes, then go for it!

Btw, thanks for giving me my own heading now...

Hmm, the Nanotech Alliance... They might be a threat to my soon to be installed secret nanotube government. I must send Agent Tube to deal with this!

Pixel has to clear it...I'll email him.

edit: Emailed him...there's some sort of bug, and he has to approve each new member as they sign up...try it in a few hours.

Thanks!

I'm a little vary about the whole cape deal, so it's important that the design has been thourougly discussed and settled in a democratic fashion.

Most importantly I would like one in the same design setting as Bluesnews. (the bear paw is pretty cool, and in line with chatbear, I assume that was intentional.) Flames is quite insync as well since all we have to do is mention either Steam/valve/doom3 and flaming starts within the first 10 psts. (better entertainment than TV I say.)

I VOTE CAPE! YES PLEASE!

Rumor has it that a certain unwashed heathen mass on these boards is keeping the guild from having a cape, at least not until it can be toggled on/off.

Meanwhile, I would actually vote on our forum if I could only get my password...

Not wanting to blame nin now that I have a valid reason to :D,
Ray Creston is still good for blame, though!

Yeah! Congrats Blue!

As for the cape, a little to orange for my tast.

I would go for the same patterns but, use three more blue hues.
So here is my humble suggestion.

EDIT:

Well I felt the previous sub was a bit cluttered (whis we could adjust emblem size) and came up with a more minimalistic design.

(currently cheking out the big Dan's music.)

Someone should do one in Blue retro color's

Hello all... I was just in Ascalon City with a new Necro/Elemental char, and found the cape guy. (I can hear nin madly hopping up and down in exuberance now.) I took a screenshot of a design I'd like to submit, in case we get capes.

www.dankupka.com/blues_gwcape.jpg - Dan =0)'s submittal for Blue's Conclave cape design.

Enjoy...

so being Christian makes one automatically closed-minded?
Yes. By definition.
It is the central and fundamental tenant of the faith, that Christianity has the one and only exclusive Truth. That is the definition of closed-minded.

If it makes anyone feel better, Islam and Judaism hold the same belief, that they and they alone know The Truth.
