    smile Avatar Battle Royale Discussion Thread XIX: To FAIL, or not to FAIL?

    I think that’s the right Roman Numeral, correct me if I’m wrong.

    Welcome to the 19th ABR Discussion Thread!

    Because we used to burn through new ABR threads so quickly, we created the Discussion thread. All banter goes here, and all comics and non-canon kills go in the main thread. (see line below)

    Avatar Battle Royale: We All Live in A Yellow Citadel is the current thread. Post artwork here.

    The ABR backup thread, used in the event of Giantitp becoming untenable due to server issues or otherwise.

    I said that we can use another name, but not a silly acronym.
    "The Faild" is even better then "FAIL". It doesn't sound official that way.
    It actually sounds like a nick name sort of thing.
    "The Terrorists"
    "Igons army"
    "The Fallen"
    "The Evil Ones"

    I dunno.

    The last thread had an unusually long life span. Also this fail/alf argument is stupid and/or annoying.

    I like the thread's name though.

    Why is there a vote for using FAIL ? I thought we all agreed to make it the name of a fictional organisation closely modelled on the resistance in some kind of telescreen series.

    EDIT: You got the Roman number wrong, it's XIX, not XVIX.

    Which is occasionally used by the public when they refer to ALF, yes.

    But Nameless and others have are dead set against using the name at all, and so have called a vote.

    We're not getting rid of ALF, that's still the name of the Resistance.
    We're voting on whether to include someone's idea of having a fictional counterpart to ALF, called FAIL.

    What an absolutely dismal day here, it's sunny, there's a bird singing outside my window and there's just the slightest breeze.. I was hoping it would rain, rainy days are so relaxing.

    I thought the vote was about whether people in real life called ALF FAIL because of a TV show (doesn't sound likely), not whether the show had a joke name. You could call the one in the show IKLEBOOGYCKINS and it wouldn't really matter.

    The vote is between using FAIL as a euphemism for ALF because of a TV show, and not having FAIL in ABR at all. That's what Nameless proposed, and we went along with it.

    So why can't we just keep it in the TV show and not have normal people call ALF FAIL. Why is it either "No FAIL at all" or "Citizens call ALF FAIL". Where is the mid ground?

    Well, considering that the original idea was "Everyone calls ALF FAIL as a joke", this is the mid-ground. And this vote was Nameless's suggestion, he's trying to force people who don't want FAIL in common use into his "kick it out for good" camp.

    Out of curiosity, why does your Rorschach avatar has a green arm? Granted, I've only read 1/3 of the book so far, so if it's a spoiler don't tell me.

    No offence, but that's quite a stupid idea. I know ABR has changed a lot since the first ever thread but chosing who makes every single comic is just getting silly.

    Also, I'm fed up with people saying the plots going too slow or someone should make a comic because if your that fussed about it why don't you just make one yourself.
