Army?....Army? We're an army now? Oh dear! Does that mean we have to wear a uniform now? I hope it's in a colour that matches my eyes.

To the legion of the lost ones, to the cohort of the damned,
To my brethren in their sorrow overseas,
Sings a gentleman of England cleanly bred, machinely crammed,
And a trooper of the Empress, if you please.
Yea, a trooper of the forces who has run his own six horses,
And faith he went the pace and went it blind,
And the world was more than kin while he held the ready tin,
But to-day the Sergeant's something less than kind.

We're poor little lambs who've lost our way,
Baa! Baa! Baa!
We're little black sheep who've gone astray,
Baa—aa—aa!
Gentlemen-rankers out on the spree,
Damned from here to Eternity,
God ha' mercy on such as we,
Baa! Yah! Bah!

Oh, it's sweet to sweat through stables, sweet to empty kitchen slops,
And it's sweet to hear the tales the troopers tell,
To dance with blowzy housemaids at the regimental hops
And thrash the cad who says you waltz too well.
Yes, it makes you cock-a-hoop to be "Rider" to your troop,
And branded with a blasted worsted spur,
When you envy, O how keenly, one poor Tommy being cleanly
Who blacks your boots and sometimes calls you "Sir".

If the home we never write to, and the oaths we never keep,
And all we know most distant and most dear,
Across the snoring barrack-room return to break our sleep,
Can you blame us if we soak ourselves in beer?
When the drunken comrade mutters and the great guard-lantern gutters
And the horror of our fall is written plain,
Every secret, self-revealing on the aching white-washed ceiling,
Do you wonder that we drug ourselves from pain?

We have done with Hope and Honour, we are lost to Love and Truth,
We are dropping down the ladder rung by rung,
And the measure of our torment is the measure of our youth.
God help us, for we knew the worst too young!
Our shame is clean repentance for the crime that brought the sentence,
Our pride it is to know no spur of pride,
And the Curse of Reuben holds us till an alien turf enfolds us
And we die, and none can tell Them where we died.

We're poor little lambs who've lost our way,
Baa! Baa! Baa!
We're little black sheep who've gone astray,
Baa—aa—aa!
Gentlemen-rankers out on the spree,
Damned from here to Eternity,
God ha' mercy on such as we,
Baa! Yah! Bah!

Yes, I have to say this has turned out to be truly amazing.

*pulls out old timer hat*

I was there when Wolflore was good. I was there fer the exodus from Wolflore. It was a painful time, full of uncertainty for the Lovers mods and their translaton, but then came LoversLab. It was small at first, a quiet home for us, but then the momentum began to build. Wolflore. Nexus. Hongfire. /VG/. We had refugees from all these places, and more. At any one time we have over seventy members logged in, and as many guests. It's a marvel to see so many active users.

Kinda makes a Daguy feel small and irrelevant. Still, its fantastic to see how LoversLab has grown.

The place may grow from people all over, but oneself must remember the mistakes and the things that drove people here and not repeat them.

Hmph, your jealousy does you no credit. I challenge you to to a manly crying contest! Whoever manages to look the most masculine while crying silent tears of either sorrow, respect, admiration or post-curry-stomachache wins!

...

Alternatively you are welcome to share in the firm handshakes.

The Dictatorship of the Nazus has bred a want for freedom among the modding community, and eventually, most find there way here. I'm glad I did, this place is far more lively and social than that place and I'm not afraid to talk. This modding warrior is glad to be part of the Lover's Lab Legion! May our ranks continue to swell, may our mods continue to be awesome and awe-inspiring, and may our people always know the modding freedom this place has come to represent!

And to the Nexus, I will say this: You started this war on modding, and we're going to win it....without doing a thing to you.

Seriously, they do all the work for us, sending good people and modders they unjustifiably banned to us, making us stroger. one day Nexus will be a memory, a ghost of the past, and we....we will still be here.

VIVA LA LOVERS LAB!

Centurion. Never saw it, looks good though, will give it a look. As for Nazus...Well I can foresee their fall already. It will come when one of the foul ones banishes CLS form their site for whatever reason. The outcry will be terrible and more bannings will follow. And there I will be in different forms to spread the word of Lovers Lab by word of PM. Now if you will excuse me, I have Nazus trollguard forces to dispose of. *Fades into the shadow Dark Templar style*

Be careful what you wish for.

Consider these points about why the Ban Nazi's over at Nexus are the way they are.

The Nexus is such a huge and well known community that they are constantly under the eye of a corporate interest. For that reason they have to employ people that are willing to be total dicks that stomp on anything that even so much as looks at them funny.

They are such a huge and well known community that they also have to avoid certain cultural taboos, because many people are simply not willing to deal with them and will raise bloody hell and lead a legal, moral and bloody crusade against all that is unrighteous!

They are such a huge and well known community that they inevitabley run into a lot of disruptive members that actually need stomping out. This unfortunately creates a habit of said stomping out that desensitizes thier staff to any cases that might be in question. A lot of members over there (although relatively few with respect to the astronomical number of members) like to press the report button every time they disagree with someone. An unfortunate consequence is that the staff simply do not have the time to consider cases very carefully and sometimes innocents get caught in the crossfire.

Yes there are some staff members over there who are total assholes... and to be honest I can only think of one in particular right now. I really hope that guy gets canned eventually because he is a total douche. But the vast majority of staff members over there are just doing thier god aweful job. And the real reason that Nexus tends to suck sometimes is that it is so very fucking well known and the most popular site for downloading mods.

So again, be careful what you wish for. And be careful what you ask for. If Lover's Lab ever becomes as popular as the Nexus it will have to undergo changes that will sacrafice many of the benefits of having a smaller quieter community.

A lot of cool people who call this place home might start to get thier voices drowned out by torrents of migrating dickwads that no one wants to talk to.

I for one am glad the Nexus is up and running strong.
