Looking Back, Looking Forward

Hey everyone. Hi. Hello. What’s up. :)

So it’s been a while. Trust me, I know. I’ve been busy, but I mean, in a year and a half, how busy do you have to be to not post even once? Well, with each passing minute the guilt grows and makes it harder. Working more-than-full-time probably doesn’t help, either! I’m writing these sentences after a robust glass of wine and will almost certainly take several attempts to finally post this. (Update: accurate) I have some maintenance plans for FUoS that I’m sloooowly working on, and I won’t be considering further posts until that work is complete. Making the move to Tumblr from WordPress is a soul-sucking endeavour, lemme tell ya. Here’s the best part: it’s an unknown-amount of work, which makes it suuuuuper motivating! Ugh. Any suggestions for pushing oneself to do something that is so incredibly boring for an indefinite amount of time is appreciated.

GTFO The Movie

FUoS plays a small role in the documentary film GTFO by Shannon Sun-Higginson. (Available on iTunes, Vimeo, Google Play, Xbox, Playstation, and Vudu.)  GTFO started filming shortly after the Cross Assault incident over three years ago, and grew to examine more than just that one instance. We’re proud of the involvement in the film, and we’re proud of what has changed since FUoS started. We’re relieved that everybody now recognizes the fact that the software and websites we use are under human control and can be used to protect, rather than harm. In the non-gaming space, Facebook has been coming to grips with harassment on its service.  Reddit is banning subreddits that specifically harass others. Google announced just recently that they’ll be removing revenge porn from search results. Twitter has been making many changes to its safety features lately.

Soft Touch

This is awkward, but, um, I think you should maybe get those checked out at the hosptical.


Affectionate Gesture

EXCUSE ME the apostrophe CLEARLY goes at the START of ‘N Sync.

“I was playing Super Street Fighter 4 on PS3 when I ran into this charming individual. Apparently, he did not like getting beaten by me and explained his displeasure very thoroughly. That isn’t all though! I got a picture of a really nice gesture of friendship sent to me as well.”


Use Your Words

Our submitter received this friend request from someone on PSHome, apparently so out of breath and out of time that the words just tumbled out all at once. Slow down! Take it easy.

Needs Improvement (NI)

Creativity requires a habitual cultivation effort, so keep at it. Points for the alliteration, though!

“I reported him. I got this very creative message on my Xbox 360 while playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.”
