    [VS] The thread of all Threads

    Since we have so many recurring threads, and even more throw away threads, I often find myself having to search through the archives to find a recurring thread. I'm fed up with that, so here are links to all important recurring threads for the VS outfit :

    This is a first selection, I probably missed some and there were also several threads I saw but wasn't sure if I should add or not (ex : outfit introduction). So feel free to comment on the selection, and provide me links to others threads if you think they should be included. Also, if you think a thread is not important enough to be in the list, feel free to say it. I will edit according to your suggestions.

    Tres bien!

    Probably counter-productive given that this is supposed to be about all the giraffe stuff but off-topic is one of my most visited threads. I'd also say the popularity of that thread in general sums us up quite well, we take pride in the outfit but we balance it by sharing videos of people falling over and music that we like.

    Nice one! I'm going to sticky this.

    And you know what this means, since you opened the thread, Ksempac. You are in charge of maintaining it :P

    Personally I don't mind off-topic being the rogue thread that everyone reads anyway. It's rarely off the front page for long, so you aren't likely to lose track of it.

    Also v good idea Ksempac.

    Yeah good idea! Don't think you missed much either. Maybe the TACGIR thread? Was there ever a thread for air squad discussion?

    Possibly here for air squad? Not sure if it is still in use, but it could always be revived and OP updated with the new air/support ideas.

    Any chance we could add some of the other resource threads to this, like the logo stuff, and youtube, because it keeps getting pushed down. Nothing big, just a small bit at the bottom so that they are easy to reach!

    Oh my, how could I forget ? the outfit logo thread is actually one of the threads I keep having to search for again and again. Will update right away.

    Added website, logo, youtube and off-topic threads.

    Eso where is the TacGir thread ?

    For Air, I'm not sure if we should use the old thread linked here, or the TTT #4 thread which was created by LaKroy to promote his new air squad setup...Tell me which is better.

    there is a search function you know.
    - Tom De Roeck.

    verse publications

    "Quantacat's name is still recognised even if he watches on with detached eyes like Peter Molyneux over a cube in 3D space, staring at it with tears in his eyes, softly whispering... Someday they'll get it."

    "It's frankly embarrassing. The mods on here are woeful."

    "I wrinkled my nose at QC being a mod."

    "At least he has some personality."

    Problem with search is you have to short of know what you're searching for.

    I know there is a search function, I do use it, but it is still a hassle, and it has 2 problems :
    - As MrEclectic said, beginners will not know that there is a thread for what they are looking for
    - For popular terms, it won't help you at all (try searching for TacGir...)

    Also, simply organizing theses threads is useful. For example, this is the first time we have one thread that regroups all recurring outfit-related events in one place on the forum.

    Yeah, people are always asking where to find this or that info on the forums. With this thread we can just say - go here.
