Ok, so it seems duck taping small noobs to the ceiling is back in fashion. However whilst its great fun i think we need to sort out exactly who is doing the duct taping, else all hell breaks loose and we're stuck together in the duck tape forever.

So the way out of this I envision is for all those interested in trapping noobs (far more fun than adopting them, which seems to have died out somewhat) to shout out in here. And in the meanwhile we can get some rules together.

And here's the first one:
Duct tape only works until the newbie has 5 posts, after that they're just too heavy.
Exception - Unless you have the extra strong stuff, that works for up to 20 posts and i'm happy to give it to a special few some for emergencies. biggrin.gif

And they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew.


Remember, be yourself. Unless you suck.

Before we take this any further, I think we should ask the man in charge. Well, what do you think Chuck?

Well, there's your answer. And remember, if there's ever anything I can do for you, forget it. I don't do those kinds of things.

The duct taping was invented to cause chaos and mass confusion, as is my way.

It's never had rules and never should have rules. You're up there until you learn that nothing you can do will make it break any quicker so just go with the flow and let Cath grenade you. >:)

Duct taping was once organized and is now a form of beautiful chaos. Do be quiet and let people duct tape as they will. Not to be rude, but you don't need to try to organize such an old and silly custom when you're still fairly new. Chill, tape people if you want, and stop trying to act like you own the tape. Everyone has some, and no one needs to ask you. As Cath said, you didn't make it up. There are no rules to duct-taping unless moop decides to make up some. Until that nonexistent day, people will duct tape newbies as much as they want to.

It's Duct tape. Duct.

I've yet to see tape made of duck, and when I do I doubt it'll be very effective.

I think that Duck tape is a brand name of duct tape, but it's still worth a chuckle. I keep imagining tape with lots of tiny ducks attached, all quacking as they held people onto the ceiling. laugh.gif

There is a brand called Duck, but still... the term is duct.

And yes, the quacking is but one reason Duck Tape is a silly idea.

Actually, Mike, it was originally called duck tape when it was invented. Not duct. It was made during WWII to keep water out of the US army's ammunition cases, and called "duck" because it was waterproof. It was only after the war that people started using it for working on heating ducts, and the color was changed from army green to silver. Then they started calling it "duct" tape.

Either term is appropriate, actually. tongue.gif

Hehe...whether it sounds silly or not, you were still wrong. tongue.gif (personally I prefer to call it duct tape too, though)

Anyway, how did this whole group duct taping thing start? I remember when moop used to do it to all the noobs, then he stopped cause he couldn't be arsed to go into Intros anymore.

...and to think people used to shout at Lo for "scaring noobs off." blink.gif She was nothing compared to you people.

I've always called it gaffa tape. Useful for taping down cables. Ever seen the industrial strength variety? You need to cut that stuff with scissors man, scissors!

Hmm, so it may have been duck originally, but now duck is the name of a brand of duct tape too.

They sell tiny rolls, you could barely tape a single person with one, and they're horrendously over priced. You can get 10 times the amount for the same price, and probably higher quality.

I refuse to recognise their existance by calling it duck tape (and it sounds silly!)!

I always thought gaffer tape was the black tape, I think it's not as thick/strong as duct tape. -and it's used because it's black and less noticable on stage.

I quite like the fact that strong tapes need to be cut with scissors because hostages rarley have a pair hidden about themselves. wink.gif

Froggy's right - gaffer tape is black, and quite different from duct tape. It's used not only 'cause it's black, but because it leaves no residue when you peel it off (as opposed to duct tape, which is horrible with that...) One uses the duct tape after running out of the gaffer tape, which is really expensive.

Oh my days! Cath found a gaffer tape site, and I found a duct tape site and there are so, so many colours and pattersn, customisable, neon, UV, glow in the dark. Electrical tape isn't so exciting any more. happy.gif

PVC tape is electrical tape, it's plastic, not as wide or as sticky but it's an insulator, hence electrical tape.

Duct tape/Gaffer tape is wider and cloth based. Also stupidly strong and sticky.

Or do you mean bondage tape? -which is a self contact adhesive, meaning it'll only stick to it's self without any residue.
