Disturbing robot

Ok copypasta

Disturbing robot

This is a beta military "luggage carrier" droid. It doesn't take much imagination to see how it could easily be made a lethal genocide machine however. You can't topple the bugger, there is no escaping a robot like that except for a gun. But add two legs so it looks centaur like and you would not stand a chance.

Official NRPM Rules
No one wants to have to read a topic laden with profanity or slurs. However using clean meanings of words that have a profane meaning is alright. For example Damn meaning to condemn is fine. If something minor slips out once in a while it is ok.
-Do not use derogatory racial/sexual terms.
-Do not use any of the major North American curse words.
-Words that are fine with us that some people consider bad are: Crap and Bastard.
-Do not say the following censored word P-o.-.r-n, it brings P-o-.-r-n bots, which few of us want to see. But for those that do, don't subject the rest of us, there are children that use this forum.
-If you are having a mature discussion you can use words for sexual parts as terms for sexual parts. Calling someone a sexual part is not allowed. Still try to limit your usage of such terms, so you don't attract bots
-If the censor blocks your word do not bypass. If you really feel strongly PM an admin and calmly explain why you think the censor is unreasonable. If you bring up a good point, the censor may be changed.

This is a tough one to explain well, so leniency will be granted for the first few minor offenses.
-Pretending to be a moderator to try to become famous or respected is not allowed.
-If it is obvious that it is in good fun or a short joke, you probably won't get more than a warning if it crosses a line.
-Yelling/ Threatening or scolding someone for their mistakes is backseat moderation and is strongly looked down upon. However, nicely helping someone or alerting someone to the rules is fine and looked up on.
-If disaster is striking don't try to mediate or stop a fight yourself. There is a report button, if you see a problem click on it and explain where(board, topic and page) the problem is and who it pertains to.

Flaming & Trolls!
Trolls are the dregs on the net society; a race of ugly, obcene monsters who live to cause fights and bait people to flame. Flaming is to insult someone; think of people arguing, that is pretty much flaming except on the internet. Flaming often brings about breaking of other rules.
When dealing with trolls there are several guidelines that will keep you free of its claws.
1. Don't reason with them, they are not people like you and me. They cannot or will not reason.
2. Since they never use reason debating or disagreeing are some of the worst things you can do. To them they will always be right. If you are good you may be able to beat a troll though. (don't try it unless you are 500% sure you can slay that troll)
3.If you ignore 1 & 2 you are feeding the trolls, only giving making them more vicious. Flaming a troll is the worst way to feed them, because you can get in trouble.
4.Report them.
5.Post a witty troll picture, if your funny to tell the more dense people it is a troll and give people a laugh.
-If someone flames, report them don't mediate or backseat moderate.
-Be careful how you talk to people, some people can misinterpret your words and get agitated.
-Don't be an idiot. But seriously, try not to act irritating.
-Don't flame back, it only gets blood on your hands and makes the fire get hotter.
-Try to work your differences out like adults, although you may not be one. Sometimes your biggest rivals can end up your best friends when you understand each other.
-Walk away from your computer, if you are getting angry or are in an irritated mood and think you could suffer from temporary troll syndrome. (making many snarky, sarcastic remarks because you feel bad.)
-Apologize and Forgive, sometimes future conflicts can be resolved with a simple apology and forgiving people.
-Do not passive aggressively flame. (Generally the conduct of someone suffering from temporary troll syndrome and/or deliberately doing things you know irritate someone.)

Inter-forum relations
We do not believe in having a romantic relationship with a member of another forum.:P
This has to do with links errected on NRPM soil er... kilobytes.
-Don't post a link to advertise/promote your forum or site outside the forum exchange area and until you have the specified number of posts. How would you like it if we came and posted links to here every other post?
-To affiliate you can wait until you have enough posts to advertise or PM an admin before that time. Your forum must satisfy the current requirements.
-Do not link(generalized linking, not just promotional links) to an overly profane website. If a website does have some adult content warn people of it.

Sexual content
I think you all know what definitely crosses the line, but I'll explain.
-No explicitly nude images of anybody. This pertains particularly to the genitalia and female breasts. (again I think you know what doesn't cross the line. For example faces, arms and etc. can be nude, but crotch and female chest area no.)
-No depictions of nudity, this includes incredible ASCII art.
-Hold back on raciness/suggestiveness of pictures particularly of people in minimal clothing. (Swimsuits, pajamas etc.)

Personal info
Share whatever you want! As long as you are sharing of your own free will, and taking responsibility for any risks associated with release of personal information; you can share whatever info you want.
-Do not share other peoples information without written consent, however.
-We strongly advise not giving out your street or zip code, unless it is needed by staff for mailing purposes. (For example if we have a contest.)
-We also advise looking for any personal info in images and considering blurring them out.
-It is not advised to reveal your last or middle name.

Roms/online cheating
It breaks the TOS so no.

With sites like Youtube, we now have to talk about media. If it is obscene or profane don't post it without a warning of adult content.

Necroposting is defined as bringing an excessively old topic back to the first page. (Or posting in an ancient topic) You should have something productive to post if you necropost.
-If it's really old don't bump it.
-If it is only a couple pages from the first page and you want to post on the same subject you probably should necropost rather than have 50million of the same topics.
-If it is beyond 5 pages and 40 days old necroposting is probably a bad idea.
-Necroposting is strongly encouraged in the Rp board rather than have a bunch of almost identical Rps just because one slows to a crawl.
-Necroposting in spam is usually alright.
-Bumping is not productive, you will have to really dress up your bump if you want to fool us, almost to the point of it not being a bump and actually being productive.

If your selling something, no mercy!
If your talking about our familiar spam keep it in the spam board.
-You can have partial spam anywhere. (saying something off of the topic and pointless yet funny, if it is accompanied by something relatively productive.

This is right clicking on one of our images, running off to another site and linking to it. This is rude and sucks our bandwidth dry. Although we are not exactly fond of our images being taken to other websites(particularly without giving credit), if you are going to do this anyway, at least right click and select "save as" and then upload it yourself. Oh and if you could state you found it on NRPM, please.
-If we find you are a major hotlinking offender, you could face an IP ban. It is not that hard to upload it to your ImageShack, so just do that.
-If you see anything that you think could be someone hotlinking our images, please contact a staff member right away!

Breaking the rules
-Your post could be deleted, generally the whole topic won't be deleted because one person is an idiot.
-You will generally get warns(or requests for a particular action), followed by suspensions and ending with bans.
-Really bad things you could just get suspended or banned without a warning.

2 and 1/2 days in i'm still somewhat confused...
That is how long I have had RB2 and I am still pretty confused. The whole way the career mode is is kind of odd, I understand all of the stars you earn on songs go into a counter that unlocks more, but it seems strange the way they set everything up. Where you can play each song individually spread all over, but only after you stumble upon it in a series of songs early on. But if it swaps your song for another the swapped song magically appears in that venue and you earn stars for it. Can someone explain what all of that means with the swapped song?
Are they bonus stars to take the place of a star if you get several 4 stars on the natural songs of the venue?
Does the venue's star count increase by five stars therefore meaning you can get almost infinite stars?
Is there a doppleganger single of that song elsewhere in the game now?
I have to really pump the visual delay a lot to be able to hit guitar notes naturally, but if the vocal detection is correct does that throw the vocalist off?
How do you enter cheats?
Where do you go to input your game's code?

The Beatles: Rock Band
My mom ruined the Beatles for me, so 'prolly not. On a side note I just got RB 2 and it does a lot of stuff far better than GH:WT for example downloadables are fully integrated. And the vocals... you could do almost a F grade with no effort and beat GH:WT's vocals hands down. (rockband does slightly better) But the negatives are it is a whole lot harder to hit notes in RB, and the graphics are not as good. (oh and you also have to use the remote with GH instruments to get past the system's Legal/Safety Screen that is popped up before every game starts.)

Who is your favourite character?
I rock as Kirby too! Still the only character I have gone Full-Syncro with is Roy. I am confident I could beat any one and everyone with Roy, doing him was that natural. I was also great with Pichu, Pichu is actually a realy powerful characters. Most of his stats are poor, but his speed, agility and item(Pichu probably has the highest Item stat) stats more than make up for his disadvantage. I liked playing as Link but his Item stat is fairly low(so certain items actually give him a considerable drop in stats) and I just recently discovered there is in-fact an item stat.
I can do pretty well with jiggly, I'm pretty good with Captain Falcon and Cell Link. I can do Pokemon trainer alright, I just discovered the power of Lucas. The real is who am I bad with.
I like playing Kirby though.

I'm free!
I graduated today. I was valedictorian so i had to make some sappy speech.

I'm free!
That is... that is... Just plain satanic!

I'm free!
*spit takes* JUNE!?

Affiliate Request
it'znot a problem.

I'm free!
Today was my last day of school. So now i'm going to have to find a lame job to make enough money to almost pay for the gas to go to my job. >_>
No, I'll find something where I could make a theoretic profit.

Guess who's back....
Yay! your back!

This should be in more games. (since it isn't about a system or gaming corporation)
This does sound really cool though! Hopefully this will come to other systems.
Here is the wikipedia article.

My novel
Yeah, it won't be too boring except for a few chapters. (although you might lose interest because when the group of Protagonists are separate I alternate chapters between groups.)

But yeah I mean look Lord of the Rings, Hairy Potter, (those borne movies) everyone wants to make a movie about a book nowadays. Still a lot is luck that people pick the book up over the others. You could write the greatest book ever and if no-one reads it, you could have written the worst book. (Not that I'm saying my novel is the best novel ever. (top 10 maybe, of modern books to the teen/Young adult crowd... :P)

Question about SMB4
Has anyone played MarioBros.4 for the DS. (I refuse to call it newSMB because the word "new" makes it lame)
I was just curious if the touch screen is required to play the game, or if everything can be done with the D-pad and A. To get the Power-up do you have to touch the power-up or just touch the screen anywhere?

My novel
My plan is too get a lot more done after I graduate. Then I will look into protecting my intellectual Property from low class publishers and try to find a publisher. If it become successful, I would probably make a sequel maybe get some kind of syndication deal to write a non-canon what-if installment of the first book. Then I'd hope some movie studio would contact me to turn it into a (Pg-13) movie. (I'd want to be a big part of movie, so they don't screw stuff up. Like some studios do.)

My novel
Well, yeah I've been writing a novel since about August 08, I'm on chapter 7 I think.
It is a (somewhat) dark(no-pun intended) sci-fi/drama/suspense with traces of mystery and romance.
I'm trying to keep the detailed info secret for now, because the internet is full of pirates who google and surf all day to steal stuff. I only feel comfortable talking about details in person, and far away from crowds.
I know the most annoying topic ever. I tell you I'm writing an epic novel, but that I can't tell you about it. (although I dropped a pretty uncomfortable hint about one of the key plot points somewhere.)

People who bought this also bought this...
A new game!

I'll post a picture and then you can post another picture that is kind of funny and related. The next person comes up with a picture(and maybe name of what the picture represents) of something funny related to your picture and so on.

For Example

Quick register.
Well kind of... Since link isn't an original character some issues arise, for example say the creator of an RP wanted to control Link. Obviously both of you can't control one Link. (however you could just have Link have the 4sword and have it split off a second link. You still would need a way to differentiate your characters though.(maybe you could call your Link RedLink, WhiteLink or so on if a problem arises.) Still, if someone banned the 4-sword from being used in their RP it could cause problems.

National Day of Prayer Thread
In honor of this day I'm creating this thread, it is the first Thursday in May. This is for the members who believe in a personal God*. You can ask for prayer or suggest something we should pray about etc. If you don't believe in God you don't have to use this thread**, every year a new one will be added.

*After all a deist wouldn't expect God to answer any prayers, since they believe God made everything and then was like "Oh, crap I'm outta milk!" so he tossed the universe in his underwear drawer and forgot about it.

** I guess if you don't believe in prayer, you could ask people to think happy thoughts at you.

Arg! I feel like I have to start with a list of several things.

- There is the country, it can always use prayer.
- The President, he has a tough job he can always use any help he can get.
- Me after I graduate, seriously. I have no idea what i'm going to do other than finish my novel. Actually this could be broadened to everyone who graduates each year.
