hehe Recent idea popped in mind! A hurricane count!!! This is mainly for the East Coast, or other hurricane areas, but anyway...yeah...Okay, so basiclly you sign up by saying something in the thread, and go "ok, count me!" or anything showing your in. Once you're signed up, after a hurricane\TS you say if you're ok, and in good condition. If you don't log back on within a month, we worry about you, until you log on to say othat you're okay. Just thought it'd be a decent way to keep up with people. Feel free to skip this over, though.

SCHOOL IS CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mmmmm...thoughtless.

As a person who has met many survivors of Katrina who've been shuffled from Texas to Tennessee to the Hudson Valley and still don't have homes, it's really trivializing it to have people in no real risk play this game. I don't care whether or not you're excited to be out of school, but I find this thread to be devoid of humor and pretty offensive.

I didn't mean it like that. The out of school part was just because I was excited to be not going to school tomorrow. This thread isn't just for this hurricane. It's for the entire season, and who knows, some even worse then Katrina might turn up..

After re-reading it, I see where you thought it was supposed to be a game. I should have worded it differently. I know hurricanes aren't games. I've seen destroyed houses, wrecked cars, trees ripped out of the ground, and billboards all broken. This is more of a thread to make sure everyone's okay than a game.

*edit* Mods feel free to bump over to personal concerns or something else if it seems more appropiate there

I thought it was supposed to be a game as well when I read this thread earlier.

I'm glad to see that you didn't intend for it to be a game, but a place for people to check in after hurricanes to let everyone know they're okay. The latter makes a lot more sense...though personally I would lose the part about counting people as "dead."

I might be dead.

In any case, I've got people down there, and from what I hear it wasn't super bad.
