[TiT] That’s It Tuesday – Issue 58

Tattoo of Tit Bird

Hi underground visitors! Welcome to the 55th issue of TIT, or That’s It Tuesday! Every Tuesday, I, Versatile1, will give you a rant of whats going on in the blog, whats intended for the future, hope, dreams, etc.

What is new?  Last week I got a chance to play through Red Alert 3, and although the game is fun, I wouldn’t say it knocked my socks off.  Yes, the water looks nice, and the idea that all units have secondary fire is cool, but the game just feels different.
I grew up with Red Alert 1 and 2.  Red Alert 3 is a whole new direction for the genre, and the fact that its no longer headed by Westwood Studios is a shame. Oh well, there is Blizzrad to look up to. ;0
As we all know, Far Cry 2 and Call of Duty World at War is out.  I don’t know if there are private servers available for each game, but I’m sure there is in some underground way.
If you know what servers are available, then help me find them and perhaps we can write an article on these games.
I have some other tutorials running around in my head, but I haven’t decided when I want to write them.  One article will dive into the art of hamachi, and how to use it to trick games into playing a LAN over the Internet with your friends.  The other tutorial is how to use an underground crack for the Steam client and download games and play them offline or on cracked servers.
When the time comes, you’ll know when the tutorial is here.
Anyway, I am going to re-do how I conduct the Demonoid invite round.  I think what I will do is twice a month (the 15th and 30th), I will send out a mass email to the group, and those who respond I will give them a queue number.  This way instead of having all these invites sent to me with an expiration date, I can just dish out invites as appropriate in a timely matter.
Almost every single day someone comes and asks for an invite.  Many of these guys I send the “test” email for them to respond back, and 80% don’t even do that.  Thus, no invite.  Muahaha.  It is simple, and it works.
Any other thoughts, let me know. Thanks!

Sucker Free Sunday – Issue 43

[The Suckers Have Changed… Again]
The Goal:
  • Have the public post articles, hopefully on a regular basis.
  • Any topic is allowed… but keep it clean. Try to be tech-savvy, but
    if that’s not what you’re about, we really don’t care. Just remember,
    this isn’t an exclusive blog, it’s for the general public. Keep in mind
    that you will be writing for the masses. Do you want younger kids
    reading bad language?
What It Takes To Become an Underground Contributor or Author:
  1. Commitment. Unless you want to write only one or two articles, you
    probably want to be a normal blog writer. This means that the day you
    choose to write on is the day you must post. We shouldn’t have to chase
    you down for a post. You may be called out. (Oh the shame!)
  2. Language. We generally try to avoid copy/paste rips here, even if
    we do write our own intros and conclusions. Try to make your piece
    engaging and interesting. For example, if you are making a tutorial,
    post some pics.
  3. No excuses. If you fail to come up with an idea, don’t hope that
    Voltaire or Versatile1 will post for you. Contact us and we will help
    you. We have lots of ideas, we’ve been writing for over a year! If you
    can’t reach us, check out Digg, Fark, Reddit, ZeroPaid, and other
    social article sites. They generally have lots of new articles which
    can create ideas. Ask MusicMasteria why he left the blog (at the
    command of our viewers!)
  4. Hard work. Don’t slack off and post a horrid one-liner. ‘Nuff said. Just be good and post something decent.
Please note that long periods of inactivity
will be noticed, and further discussions related to this activity shall
be conducted in a professional manner off of the blog.Bad behavior related to the blog will result in IP blockage. We will
spam filter you if you decide to vent on the blog via post or comment.

To apply, post your request and desire in the comments of this
Sucker Free Sunday issue, or any issue. As long as the Staff sees the
request, further action will take place. Or, send us an email. We love reading those. Thanks!

Finally, those of you who sign up for PrizeRebel using the links on
this blog, send Voltaire an email if you want traffic to your personal
blog or site. We can help you by linking articles relevant to general
The Underground material. (and other things!)

Sucker Free Sunday – Issue 35

[The Suckers Have Changed]
Bah! Since there was mad turmoil on Issue 21, and after one complaint that the rules were worthless and not going anywhere, I have decided to change it up a bit. This time around, it is going to be shorter, sweeter, and much simpler.
The Goal:
  • To find new writers to take up a certain day of the week (yes, we can have multiple writers a day or overlap) to post dedicated, fresh content.
  • Topics you desire to write on can be anything, but please keep it clean and within the realm of sensibility. We have children, young adults, fathers, mothers, and the elderly visiting this blog. When in doubt, contact Versatile1.
What It Takes To Become an Underground Contributor or Author:
  1. The Underground accepts all forms of communication. You can wish to express yourself via video, writing, pictures, audio, or any combination of the methods mentioned above.
  2. You must be a dependable writer. This means that you are expected to write on the day that you wish to write on. If you know you can’t make it, please contact Versatile1 to make arrangements for article backups.
  3. You must be enthusiastic to write here on the blog. Please see it as an honor to partake in a blog that receives at least 2K views a day.
  4. If you are stuck for ideas, contact Versatile1 for suggestions. Apathy or excuses to not write is not acceptable. For a good example, ask MusicMasteria why he is one of the poorest writers on the blog.
