    No, this has nothing to do with rules here on TPU or posting rules in the gaming section.

    It means "The Gaming Section Rules" :rockout:

    In honor of the gaming section being one of my favorite sections to mod, I'm having a little contest.
    Post a funny screenshot that you took while gaming.
    The member who posts the one that I think is the most hysterical gets any Steam game gifted to them.

    Contest Rules:
    Contest closes Sunday July 4th Central Time when I feel like it. Contest Extended !
    You must have a Steam account to receive the gifted game.
    The screenshot must be one you took (honor system in place guys and gals, This is for fun, I'm not going to check.)
    Post what game the screenshot is from and write a quick blurb as to explain it.
    Multiple entries are fine.
    Put the screenshot in spoiler tags. This is a requirement. My internet connection is already complaining from downloading games.
    Winner will be contacted via PM to see what game he/she would like.
    Contest is open to any TPU member, including staff.
    Do not post screenshots that would be considered inappropriate for the forums.

    3 ... 2 ... 1 ... Go!

    nothing ever happens in my games, funniest thing i have a picture of are my BC2 Stats, which can only be described as a joke (6% accuracy and a 0.4 k/d ratio)(Thats what playing as a medic gets you) :)

    - couldn't you of just used an exclamation mark to denote its a statement

    i don't think anyone will read the rules unless they post in the gaming section, if no one enters maybe my stat screen will be the biggest joke on TPU

    Yup ... it's for the gamers. :toast:

    On June 10th, 2007 our only son, Garrett, was on his way home from college for the weekend.
    He was killed in a car accident.
    He was going to college for game design at ITT Tech in Green Bay.
    I was so looking forward to playing the first game he designed. :(
    I taught him to care more about others than himself and he was always giving away his toys from when he was young to his friends' little brothers and sisters.
    I promised myself that even though I could not spoil him anymore with gaming hardware and new games, that I would keep his memory alive by giving what I could to help people and make their lives a little better.
    I don't do contests for recognition or anything like that, I do it for the memory of Garrett and for all the kids who have a dream of working on games someday.
    God bless you all.

    Arma II. In the training level where you have to pick up and move the injured soldier. Strange thing is, this guy looks scarily like me!!!

    One thing Kreij - when I was on 56k I noticed something; pictures under spoiler tags would load when the webpage opened. Clicking the spoiler button doesn't begin loading the picture, it's already loaded with the page. I first noticed this in FS threads with lots of pics under spoilers, even without clicking them it took ages to load.

    I know they still load, but the page doesn't jump around as the pictures display, which drives me nuts. lol

    Wow Kreij, fantastic! To gift any Steam game is really something, as they can be quite expensive. :cool: :respect:

    No, Cheesy, you can post a screen from a "cheesy" game on your cell phone if you want. :D

    I caught REAYTH doing yoga in BC2:Vietnam. I tried to tell him this was not the time or place to do the "dick in the dirt" pose but he just wouldn't listen.

    I've got a few I'll have to dig up...

    Also, what about a series of screenshots that are hilarious together?

    Would be cool if you could add short clips as well. I imagine glitches and stuff would be much funnier that way compared to just a screenshot.

    i know this isn't a 'screenshot' but it is still worth posting. a couple of years ago a bunch of TPUers playing L4D got together.
