Skotos Forums Closing: September 30

The Skotos Forums are officially closing on September 30, 2020. They will go read-only on that date, and will be removed entirely sometime afterward.

We encourage the games that spun off of Skotos to create new discussion mediums of their own, and some have already done so. But the centralized discussions for Skotos will soon be a thing of the past (just as the centralized Skotos site is).

We've also posted a goodbye message to the community on our main page, which you can find here:

  • You know you are a complete CM addict when..

    1)You set Skotos as your homepage, despite the fact that you google constantly.

    2)You'd far rather attend a CM social function than a RL one.

    3)You inwardly consider it one of your life's greatness achievements when you are promoted to the IB.

    4)Not only have you played 24 hours straight, you actually look forward to the weekends so you*can*.

    5)You instantly recognize the other players that are as addicted as you are and wonder how they are doing it with so little sleep.

    6)You've tried (unsuccessfully) to hack your firewall at work and are seriously considering compromising your personal value system in order to get the Sysadmin to give you access.

    7)Your friends are worried about you and are beginning to use terms like "Intervention" and "Ten-step" in your absence.

    8)Your friends are worried about you and are beginning to use terms like "Intervention" and "Ten-step" to your face.

    9)Your creative writing becomes regularly interspersed with adverb/verb constructs such as "inwardly sigh" and "pointedly remark".

    10)Refusing to acquiesce to sleep (evil beast) you are instead sitting here at 6 in the morning trying to come up with other signs of addiction because even though no one is actually playing, you just aren't quite ready to go.

    Not that I'd personally know.

    The yoke or the throne?

        ...when you come up with a list of signs to know by whether you are a complete CM addict...
        'If you're going through hell, keep going.'

        POLITENESS, n.
        The most acceptable hypocrisy.

        'Hitler had a good 20 to 30 IQ points on Bush, so comparing Bush to Hitler would in many ways be an insult to Hitler.'

                I guess we are all kind of sucked in!

                I have another reason:
                ~ You are addicted when you reply to every forum posting as well.

                All i know is that i am sucked in and i am buggin the heck out of my parents with it!

                    You'd find me boring actually. It took everything for my friend in NH to make me speak when I went to her home for 4 days in March. And whenever I said something, she teased me about my French-Canadian accent.

                    And yes, my spoken English is horrid!

                    Unless you give me enough sugar, I might be fun enough and do the CHOO-CHOO with Khalea and you.

                      Khalea, Umichan, and Faith stealthily enters a Marrach Noise room.
                      Khalea, Umichan, and Faith clear their throats silently.

                        Oh, and let's add no. 61:

                        You know you are a complete CM addict when you pick up some habits your character has.

                        I swear Marie-Claude is going to kill me if I make the CHOO-CHOO while at college again.

                          stop responding so damn fast.

                          Love you still, Gaby.
