With 2016 being a bit of a downer for many, and with the new year fast approaching, I figured an inspirational quotes thread could be nice. Contribute as you wish.

One of my favourites is the line "Be the change you want to see in the world". All change you want to see in your life has to start with you. This quote is commonly attributed to Gandhi but apparently he never said those exact words.

    Some of the most memorable forum post of 2016.

    I have a post in memory of Thane Mantis. (PM me if you want to see it)

    There are some other quotes I liked.

    It was an post that got trolled heavily. Here are some of the best sections of it. I recommend reading it. There are a lot of interesting quotes in there. here

    maybe kixeye should try clearing the cache and cookies and restarting - then all will be fine
    You forgot few step and it is very important to do all of them to fix the bugs and problems with the game.
    The game team was able to resolve the issue that was causing the error 8000. Players still unable to load pas 80% or stuck in loading may be able to resolve this by following standard troubleshooting steps (clearing browser and flash cache, rebooting computer, router, and modem, etc.).
    They are loading all the codes but half the devs are stuck at 81% and the rest are getting clock out of sync.

    Another from Rocky in DrPhill's state of the game post. It's also one of those buried posts. here

    Is it my old forums "handbook" that I wrote for KIXEYE?
    Also jeez, in memory? Im not dead man lol. Still alive (as far as I can tell.)
    Also, pretty sure none of the other quotes you put down might count as "inspirational" which is the point of the thread.

    Since Im a big gamer, Im going to put forth an inspirational quote taken from one of my favourite game series, Assassins Creed.

    "When I was very young, I was foolish enough to believe that our Creed would bring an end to all these conflicts. If only I had possessed the humility to say to myself, I have seen enough for one life, I've done my part. Then again, there is no greater glory than fighting to find the truth."
    Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad

    Inspirational enough?

    "You can't live without the fire, it's the heat that makes you strong." - Iron by Within Temptation

    This is one of my favorite rock songs and it is essentially about how your life's struggles will empower you in the long run.

    Yeah, I can't help but have noticed that as well. Hyperius seems to have vanished. Not entirely unexpected since its the holidays, and he does have his kid now. Still, Im a tad surprised at how just absent he's been overall, even before Christmas started up.
    I wonder if someone around ought be elected mod. Keep things in check whilst Hyperius is away.

    I don't know exactly who has a moderator position at the moment and who is the newest mod? I think there should be some new faces.

    I spoke to Ralle recently if your interested I_D. He said there may be a chance he'll show up in awhiles if he gets curious about whats changed on the forums and whatnot, but for now, the odds of him returning a very very low.

    A quote in Swedish by an unknown person.
    Use whatever you wish to translate it if you want to know the meaning.

    Teori är när man vet allt men ingenting fungerar. Praktik är när allt fungerar men ingen vet varför. Hos oss är teori och praktik förenade: ingenting fungerar och ingen vet varför.

    I hope KIXEYE's site doesn't' squash the image down too much. But this should do.
    EDIT: Cool, I see KIXEYE's site hasn't messed it up. Still all readable and visible and whatnot.
