    By Travesty, 0
    We have amalgamated a few sections of this forum.
     
    We moved all threads from General Gaming, Teamspeak, Strategy (Dota2, LoL, WoW) and Overwatch, etc. into one... now called General Gaming and Teamspeak.  Here you can talk all things gaming related (new games or current games you want to play or discuss with other sG members, etc) with exception to our own hosted server discussion... save that for the Divisional Forums.
     
    We also moved the Entertainment Center, Fitness, Sports, etc threads into The Pub. I kept some of the more prominent stickies but most of the others are now a 'Featured Thread'. They won't be stickied but have a star in front of the title. However, most of them weren't posted in for over a year, so it's cleaned up a little. If you think your recent stickied topic should be stickied again, post in here and we'll consider it. In the future, please use The Pub for anything related to the amalgamated topics of General Discussion.
     
    Anything that has a more serious tone like News, Politics or any serious topics you'd like discussed without trolls or funny memesters, please use the Serious Discussion subforum. Any trolling done in that subforum will result in a loss of privileges to post in that subforum.
     
    Now you may be wondering... why the changes? Well we wanted to promote more discussion within the rest of the forums for any General Discussion or Gaming. Really the main section of discussion happens in the Talk Mad Shit threads in the 'Members Only' subforum that only the Members of sG can see. Having these threads all one place will allow more people to see each topic rather than sifting through each subforum and subsection. Hopefully allowing more people to click on the thread you created and want discussed. 
     
    Right now we don't get a lot of daily traffic in any other part of the forum except in 'Members Only'. There really wasn't a big need for all the subforums because the lack of new topics generated each month. So hopefully with these changes it will give more people the chance to see what others are talking about, rather than using the 'Unread Content Stream' (which is pretty much every thing all in one place). Also General Gaming and our Teamspeak server go hand-in-hand so we are hopeful it will get more people talking about casual games we can pick up and play with other people from the community.
     
    These aren't big changes but they are changes nonetheless and might take some time to get used to. One thing I will suggest, that I've had all along, is to change the settings in your profile to Automatically Follow Content. Simply go into your Profile Settings -> Notifications. This will give you a notification in the top right of the forums and it will keep you up to date on any post that is made to any topic you have created or replied to. I find it really handy and lets me know anytime there's a new post in a thread I'm interested in.
     
    See below for a picture of what to check off:
     

     
     
    Let us know what you think. Positive or negative. Feedback is welcome. If it's becoming an issue after the summer, we will consider moving it back into the separate subforums and subsections. For now... we hope you enjoy the new layout.
     
    Now for all the Thank You Threads... I will be combining all the thank you threads into one mega Thank You sG thread where you can make a post within the thread rather than creating a new topic each time.
     
    Thanks for reading. Have a great summer.

      I'm gonna be honest, I hate sport games (because people rek me everytime lol), But my brother does yeah.
    • [Serious] Supernatural and the Unexplained
      The only "supernatural" thing i've experienced was when I first came to California and I was staying in a hotel. I woke up in the middle of the night to a ghostly black figure at the end of my bed. I felt startled, but not enough to like yell or get up. I was too tired to care I guess? I kinda just closed my eyes and looked up a couple times and it still was there. Eventually I just fell back asleep and it never came back for the rest of the week in that hotel.   I asked some of my family about it and they decided it was sleep paralysis which is this weird waking dream thing that can happen to you. Scientifically from my experience, this would explain a lot of those ghost stories where its "I woke up and there was this figure" or "I was so scared I couldn't move" because from my understanding it's that your body is still entirely asleep as well as you are dreaming, but your mind wakes itself up? So your bodily functions are frozen, but you can see and experience things in the dream you are having in relation to the real world around you.   Ultimately since I had one of these "waking nightmares" and it is a very vivid and real memory over 2 years old, I could see how this could leave an impression on someone and lead them to believing in a supernatural force in their life which follows that whole "if you are looking for it you will always find it" premise. In the same way traumatic experience change people, without an understanding that these sleep paralysis episodes happen all over the world, I could see how one episode could lead to a spiraling belief of your life being taken over my supernatural forces.   tl;dr Sleep paralysis can lead to a unfounded belief and fear of supernatural forces around you   edit: I just remembered my little brother had a similar episode where he had thought he woken up, but didn't, and couldn't breath. He started panicking to where he woke up and started just walking to my parents room screaming bloody murder.

      I dont really believe in ghosts or spirits or anything but I had this really weird incident     So me and one of my boys were chilling in my car and we had picked up 2 cigarettes on a random summer night and pulled up to an empty parking lot in my town to have a quick smoke.   So we pulled into the far left corner of the lot, so imagine there is a tree line to the left of the drivers side and the whole parking lot pretty much and the empty building were to the right of the passenger side.   I was looking to my left and I noticed a weird figure standing in the trees.   It looked like someone in a black hoodie with the hood over his head, hands in his pockets, and was looking down.   My friend was completely looking the other way, to the right, and saw the same exact figure, hands in pockets and all, on the complete other side of the lot.   We saw the same figure at the exact same time, in two completely different places. It actually looked like there was a person standing there and it looked very real.   But it was only for a moment and you could no longer see it, and we floored it the fuck out of there.   Dont really believe in ghost stuff, but that shit had me believing for a good hour.

      Anyone have stories they just can't explain or eerie coincidences? Post them here.   Okay, story time.
      So my cousin had bad heart problems from the second he was born. He was in the hospital too many times to count before the age of 7. traveled across the country going to visit many different doctors to take care of his weak heart.
      One summer it was looking good for him. So much so that he could even swim with us in the pool. We got a good photo of that day. But later that summer he had to be put into the hospital once again. This was at age 8. He had to travel to the Ronald McDonald House in Saksatoon, Canada. (It's basically a children's hospital with some really talented doctors. My cousin was there with a bunch of other unhealthy kids.  
      During his stay he was kept in one big room with a drywall divider that didn't reach all the way to the ceiling. So you could kinda hear what was going on on the other side of the wall. My mom and my aunty were with him at this time (so keep in mind this is all hearse from them). They were sitting next to his bed not sure if he was going to make it out of this one. There was legitimate concern from the doctors during this summer.
      He had fallen into a deep sleep and had finally just awoken.
      He asked his mom, "Where are they taking her?"   "Where are they taking who, Dale?"
      "The girl in the other room. I saw a man and a woman take her."
      My mom and aunty were confused as to who he as talking about but not even two seconds go by when they can hear a monitor from the other room go beeeeep.
      The young girl on the other side of had passed away right then and there, seconds after his vision.
      I'm not religious by any means but I suppose you could say I'm a bit of a spiritual individual. I can't explain that type of shit but it is just simply one hell of a coincidence for him to have this vision in his sleep and to wake up and ask that specific question.
      Dale didn't make it in the end and passed away on my dad's birthday the next May.
      I thought I'd share it with y'all and wonder if any of you have or have heard some crazy experiences similar to that one. It's just an interesting story that i've been fascinated with for a long while ever since his passing.   My mom isn't a religious person really either. But my aunt is now, I think because it just brings her comfort that Dale is in a better place because it can't be easy losing a child. And I don't think she'll ever get over it, but who could.     Before you send your condolences, this thread isn't meant for that. While I appreciate the thought, please only share stories or thoughts on similar experiences in this thread. He passed away a long time ago and I've come to peace with his passing.   I'm fascinated with these types of stories so share them if you have any.
