This is something I'm doing both to let people know of the other community I'm a part of; and as a silly thing to do, as I've made a post about The Furry Pound in their forum too.

Personal History:
Game Against The Machine and I go way back; back to the days when it was called Planet Garry's Mod. This was a time when I had few online friends, and was part of no community. I hopped on their server one day and grew to be a part of a fun-loving community. Made friends, gained rank and even made admin. I threw in suggestions here and there; and other things of the like. I even use to play Team Fortress 2 with them when it first came out and helped pull them through two clan-matches in the game. I fadded out of Garry's Mod, though, and soon became disconnected with the group. Only recently did I get to become reacquainted with them; mainly due to E-104 Epsilon asking me if I wanted to help GATM in the TF2 tournament.


Servers:
The Arcadium (Garry's Mod) - Their longest running and oldest server. It has gone through many private custom admin-scripts made by Foszor.

The PainRift (Garry's Mod) - The secondary server and a backup. It was also a place to test out things before they got moved to the main.

Kingdumb (Counter-Strike: Source) - None of us were notably that great at it, but it was always fun with friends; I don't think it's around anymore, or runs by the same name.

Jewlands (Team Fortress 2) - It wasn't used too much minus some small matches between some of the better known members. It was merged with Mine-Dog's TF2 server, since neither got much use; and is now called Axis vs Allies [Mine-Dog/GATM].


People of Significance:
Foszor:
Image
The top man himself. He kept our servers up, made us awesome scripts and was like a father to our whole community. He kept things fresh, and everyone pretty much liked him; it was just odd since he rarely spoke with us much outside of the forums.

Chad:
Image
Our even less seen second-hand man. He help Foszor do just about everything, and had a few interesting things he did himself. We rarely saw of him though, out of Foszor's super secret tests, that is.

E-104 Epsilon
Image
We had small bit of rivalry at first, but soon became good friends on the server. We almost always tried to compete neck and neck in something. If I was bad at something, chance are he was good at it; and vice-versa. We were almost like brothers in Garry's Mod.

Beowulf
Image
You may have seen him around our server. He had very odd ways of building; very out of the box. He was also much a thinker and I still hold him in high-regards as one of my smartest Steam-Friends to date. Although he plays with us, mind you he does it with sprays off and is in no way a furry.

Bartimaeus
Image
A thinker, not a welder. He was on and off the server, and was pretty good at what he did; though I can't quite remember his specialty. Him and me had a small argument way back when that was never cleared up until recently.

Other's of Recognition:
[Mine-Dog] Waxx

Inside Jokes:

Fluffy - A custom slay script on our Garry's Mod server; it caused a lighting cloud to form, and the very wrath of god, in the form of lighting, to strike you down into giblets.

Fosor - A misspelling of Foszor. If you typed it out you might get slayed or fluffied.

Beer - How you got rank in our server; you got beer over time which was traded for rank.

Hamsters - A constant inside joke, along with gerbils; for no apparent reason.

Howl can't Weld - A laugh that when Bartimaeus (Howl) fucked over a huge contraption we worked together on; I trusted him to weld it and it fell apart.

There's many, many more; but it's been ages and I've forgotten the minor ones.


I hope you've enjoyed or been entertained by learning about the only other community I've really stuck to, and liked, over the years.

Hehe, I just checked the thread on the other forum. I guess I'm not noteworthy enough. :P

Very intresting though, and maybe I check it out whenever I need to play Garry's mod for a bit. I still don't know of a good server after all, and we don't have enough regular Garry's mod players to start our own. :P

It was building enormous things, but you stopped playing once I found that niche.

As of recently it's more abstract stuff, and extremely detailed rooms.

Doom doesn't know I'm an admin. :v


Also, hi everyone.

It's hard to mention everyone. Also, I'm loving how this is making the two communities mingle a bit. :u

Hey, you didn't mention me! :C

I was the first full time GATM member (You kind of quit..) to go over to [FOR]. I've been playing with you guys here since May and I don't get any recognition?

I was trying to make it less personal and more group-based history. Also, you got to be known in both communities. I'd be weird.
