READ THIS: The right mental image

Post  Scriptarius on Mon Sep 06, 2010 2:10 pm

I've noticed that people have very different views of what we are trying to build here. I'd like to clear some things up. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

1) WHAT THIS IS
Nerd Vegas
This is supposed to be a hybrid of a gaming center, a nightclub and a hotel.
On the side it has server farms and sustainable energy farms to generate income and power.
Permanent residence is possible within the hotel part, but we are not expecting every contributor to wear blue jumpsuits and live in here for the rest of their lives.

2) WHAT THIS IS NOT
-An experimental post-apocalyptic society
-A nerd monastery
-A nerd nation
-A survival bunker

Although I don't disagree with you, I think this should be up to the community and not just one guy.

Sounds like a nice resort to go have some good times!

That is more or less the impression I've been getting. And I do rather like the name Nerd Vegas.

What if we want to wear blue jumpsuits and live there for the rest of our lives? Razz

On a more serious note, are we looking at having some actual staff, or is it more of a situation where everyone does as much work as they want to do, with possible added incentives, to make sure that the work they want to do is more than no work?

Yes, we'll HAVE to have some amount of staff to keep the place running.

well, we can't start it off as a resort, that takes both time, money, and development.
We need to do the best we can to start it off.

I think this should be stickied, really.

As I imagine it: On the field you see a makeshift wall, towers and men patrolling the top. Inside, there are a few buildings and another leading into the bunker.

In that bunker there is a main reception... A ginger, chubby and greasy guy with big rimmed glasses looks up from his screen and strokes his neckbeard (which is encrusted with all sorts of leftover food) and he welcomes you "Welcome to Nerd Vegas, how may I help? Here's a sheet detailing the levels, I hope you enjoy your stay".

In those levels there is a convention room, a nightclub/bar room (a GOOD and attractive source of income), another level filled with banners and split into sections with whatever companies sponsoring that section. Lower there are rooms and even lower are the vital parts.

This is to all of you out there that are not sure or have some other reservation:

/tg/ gets shit done

also, keep in mind that ideas like this rarely get even this far. This project may go nowhere, but maybe it will work...

Don't be afraid to follow your dreams, for normal people rarely make history, and if you are here, and read this entire thread, you are one of us.

You good sir, are wrong.
History is only rarely made by those of us who are extraordinary.
Histor is more often made, by ordinary men placed into extraordinary circumstances.

Gentlemen.
This is our chance to make history.
...
Or our chance to make the worlds greatest attempt at trolling. To be honest, it can go either way right now.

Either way it goes, just remember, we are /tg/.
WE GET SHIT DONE.

And lo, in the early days, times were hard. Mutants and heretics and naysayers abouded, and the /tg/ were sore afraid. Then several of their number spake; "Fear not." "For fear is the mind killer, fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. Accept your fear. Allow it to pass over you and through you. And when your fear has gone, turn your inner eye to trace it's path. Where the fear was there will be nothing. Only you will remain."

And lo did the /tg/ lol over the obvious Dune reference, and they indeed did overcome their fear and set their skillful hands to the task of bringing about a change.

Twelve years /tg/ worked, and on a cold night, in the year 200X, Vault 404 was born. A perfect society, an awesome underground base, hell-bent on destroying every evil standing between fa/tg/uys and long nights of gaming, built for one purpose, to host lots of neckbeards playing traditional games. Ready, willing, prepared to fight.

Fixed that for you.
