As you all know a PP hat was featured on BBC news. But someone special was wearing it. Not a celebrity rather an everyday hero. He was a gamer just like us. He risked his life for someone he didn't even know. Just to stop a robbery. He was shot in the chest. With him being a Pure Pwnage fan. Why not come together to give him a big big welcome back card. I mean what if you risked your life and lost consciousness and once you gain it. You go on the internet after getting shot only to see that fellow gamers consider your a hero. Just like spiderman,superman. Any hero. So let's give Adam Mapleson a big get well soon/ welcome back card. From the Pure Pwnage community. And also props to denw0 for the idea. Let's hope he sees this.



So just sign below with a message or something like that. Anything you'd love to read after being shot in the chest in order to save someone else's life at no cost. Rather getting something valuable back, respect.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.

NEW APPROACH!

Thanks to Tubby for teh suggestion.. from now on can people save their message as an image ~300x100px. This size:



Post up your message only and then I'll compile them all at the end. This means by the time we're done, the first half of the messages won't be completely destroyed by resizing and compression icon_razz.gif

Cheers,

Moriarte: Ignoring IW.net, is the PC version of Modern Warfare 2 a direct port of the console version?
Infinity Ward: No, PC has custom stuff like mouse control, text chat in game, and graphics settings.

Ok, me and Iceman got skipped, so I added us on and extended it to get us some more room... not sure how it's going to work otherwise icon_smile.gif

Don't skip me again icon_sad.gif

Edit : I mean, I just skipped Andrack, but I've added him back in (the updated version is uploading)

If you see someone has been skipped, try and copy and paste them back in, it'll be better for everyone! icon_smile.gif
