"Joining us now from Rupert Murdoch's colon..."



"Howdy friend, fancy seeing you here. Who am I? Well I might look familiar to some but in this little game you can call me the God of Formats.

I've summoned all of you to amuse myself. The age of the physical format is almost over with your Steam, dot em pee threes and eye ess ohh's. There's just no competition out there anymore. I've seen you all out there in the marketplace before, ya'll hated each-other's guts and ran intense campaigns to send eachother into the oblivion known as the bargin bin...


Anyway

As the God of Formats you might be wondering what I plan to do with ya. That's simple. I've frozen time and you know what? It might be subject to change.

Really change forever...

In this space I have created an arena you're all familiar with...


A replica of a department store...

AND you're all going to compete with one 'nother and it'll be beautiful. Wonderful. Fan-loving-tastic because what else am I supposed to do when all my poo poo has run off to the digital world with all those new age digital gods, huh?

Anyway!

As you can see, I haven't exactly had many formats to talk to in awhile and it's nice to see you all. There needs to be some loving rules laid down.

Disobey 'em and I might be forced to put a cosmic bullet through your compact di-

Sorry, I didn't mean to make you cry..."

THE RULES
    NO QUOTING YA PM
    NO EDITING YOUR SAYINGS
    NO LINKING TO SECRET DOCUMENTS
    WE VOTING TILL HAMMER, A BIG RED loving HAMMER. NO CONFUSION TO THAT. A HUGE loving HAMMER.
    DEADPOSTING CAN ONLY BE FER JOKES AND COMMENTARY, NO SNITCHIN' SECRETS
    NO MILLERS OR CRAZY STUFF
but there might be some confusing stuff

"As the God of Formats some of you might already be familiar with eachother being formats yourselves. There's a bucketload of discontinued formats out there so looking them up on your fancy electronic devices won't do you much good separating the good, the bad and the ugly. That said this is meant to be a space where rivalries can live again...

By god these old bones want to see you fight..."
"Now listen to yer intercom..."


"Hi there formats, I am the department store intercom system. Signups will close when the required amount of players is met. As this is a game which is no doubt being introduced while other mafia games are being run, a DATE will be set when it is all clear to start. The required amount of players is 15 and days will run from 9AM to 9PM Brisbane time. The God of Formats might be busy with other god-like duties so please be patient if there are delays in god-like behaviour.

Any questions regarding your roles, format or weird stuff can be PM'ed to the God of Formats.

Enjoy your stay."


"The winners of this here game will be awarded physical format champions and serve as my arch-angels, not only that but time will change so you were originally commercially successful or if you already were - even more successful than before. I hope you don't disappoint me, after all I created you.

HUH I count sixteen.

BANG BANG....

Anidav, xD Card; rule-enforcing hypocrite has been killed on Day 0...(Anti-Town-Scum-Vanilla-Town-Nurse)


Good Luck."

The amount of SD card competitors was seriously bullshit, buying a camera in 2004 would be hell.

Working in a photo lab around that time was a trip, too. So many different slots, and people getting cards lost in there from trying to use the wrong one...

XD cards were the worst for getting stuck in machines, they were so short and stubby so they'd just go too far in the wrong slot and get lost. But that little ridge on the end made them stick a little bit, so they were annoying to try grab with the tweezers, you'd have to try and pinch them around the sides till you could get a good angle on it.

Ah, so many memories...

No wonder people use Smartphones for photography now. I think a bunch of Camera companies got caught up in a EU law suit where they got told to stop making their own cards, it's bullshit. The same thing happened to make Micro-USB the default port on phones for charging.

I need 3 more so I can lock the thread and roll roles. Unless we want to be talking about formats forever, which is fine too.

the 6230i used an MMC which was just thinner than an SK card, but more expensive. it had to go under the battery.

I'll join if you need people, but I think someone as absent minded as me playing two games at once is fraught with peril, so prioritize others over me.
