Now, I'm sure you haven't stopped receiving crazy emails, why the lack of Mailbag articles?
I was wondering that myself. It's always been my favorite part of the site.
I can vouch that there's no shortage of crazy emails.
of course not, half of them come from me! just kidding. but yeah, they are funny.
Did you get my blood?
They drank most of it, mailed me the leftovers.
For such a popular feature, I'm suprised it isn't updated more often.
I think that if you want something done, then do it yourself. Of course, since I don't have access to the crazy emails, I'll just have to answer crazy forum threads. Or at least pretend they're crazy forum posts. Like this one.
Dear used number.
Ever since "our" new crazy-mail bot was installed, "our" crazy emails have dwindled into almost nothing. Now, you may wonder what constitutes a "c-mail", and the algorhithms are far too complex to explain, but here are a few hints:
* The word "Jesus". Either it's a religious nut, or it's someone angry (and therefore at least temporarily crazy) enough to use Jesus (or Jeeeeeezus!, and other forms) as a mild form of swearing in writing.
* Whenever a new ultra-hyped game is released and we don't give it an A, we cut out all emails about that game for a month, since they will invariably be from angry fanboys.
* Whenever a new ultra-hyped game is released and we -do- give it an A, we cut out all emails about that game for a month, since they will invariably be from angry bashers and trashers.
* Any email from an AOL account.
Not a GR staffer.
Now, if only I can manage to inject some humour, I'm sure I'll have something good going here. So, ask me your crazy questions!
I wonder if the beer robot can also write mailbags?
no...that would be mailbag robot
we've been short-staffed recently, and the holiday games are flooding in. but that's no excuse. ive got some good stuff and i'll try to put together a mailbag very soon.
IDK but that's my favorite part of the site besides the forums I'll write one myself if you need it
you could get the code monkeys to write it.
How about you enlist me to answer your mail? I work for free and I'm angry all the time.
Not to be cruel, but here's a tip: Whenever you apply for some writing position (even just for fun), it's a good idea to have your language straightened out. Putting in punctuation, for instance, is something any prospective employer will notice right away. Or rather, they notice right away if it isn't there.
Even the code monkeys know this.
At least I think they do...
Has anyone seen them lately?
And yeah, I'm sure plenty of people here would enjoy the fame of being allowed to insult the scum of the net, the people who gives GIFT a face, the people who actually responds to the offer of $15 million from a very nice bloke in Nigeria... Come to think of it, I'd like that position. But frankly, I'm afraid I'd usually end up being too long-winded, thus only answering one e-mail per mailbag and still filling the page.
Of course, if that should actually be a desirable trait...
I don't think the GR mailbag would really be the GR mailbag if someone who wasn't a member of GR was answering the mail.
I'm the GR Employee they never hired.
I think Colin still has a restraining order on me.
Plus, you have to be funny.
