          I've noticed a lot of articles lately where they probably create them long ahead of time but they don't get published until a much later date, however it still creates a chatty thread for the original creation date, it seems like.

          Props to Andrew for hanging through these last two months to make the transition solid, though.

              Is there a way we can wipe his brain so that he has never "met" DNF, kind of like in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind?

        I know I'll get shackpiled for it, but good riddance to Remo. The high point of his time on shack was posting a picture of double parking a Yaris, FFS.

          No. Ozzie will put up the link on the top of Chatty so people can read Andrew's thoughts, which you can find here: https://www.shacknews.com/article/85290/hello-and-goodbye

          Andrew was awesome during the transition away from the previous owners of the site and getting Shacknews ready for its next chapter. This was in the works for quite some time and we definitely wish him the best of luck, and he is always welcome to contribute to the site whenever he wants (and he has said he would like to).

      Start here: "Video Game News, Videos and File Downloads for PC Games and Console Games at Shacknews.com." A bland,unoriginal and completely misleading title.

      Fellow Shackers, I come to you in the wake of recent events to issue a call to reason. Let no shacker deny the perils of our time. While we battle one another, divided be the petty strife of our common history, the tide of greater conflict is turning against us, threatening to destroy all that we have accomplished.

      It is time for us as console and as PC gamers to set aside our long-standing feuds and unite. The tides of an unwinnable war are upon us and we must seek refuge on higher ground lest we be swept away by the flood. The Old Shack is no more. Whatever semblance of unity and protection it once provided is a phantom... a memory. With our enemies left unchecked, who will you turn to for protection? The devastation wrought by the Gamestop invaders is self-evident. We have seen our threads and stories destroyed by the calculated blows of IGN. We have seen first hand our friends and loved ones consumed by the nightmarish Neogaf.

      Unprecedented and unimaginable though they may be, these are the signs of our time. The time has come my fellow Shackers to rally to a new banner. In unity lies strength; already many of the dissident factions have joined us. Out of the many we shall forge an indivisible whole capitulating only to a single throne. And from that throne, I shall watch over you. From this day forward let no Shacker make war upon any other Shacker. Let no corporate agency conspire against this new beginning, and let no shacker consort with other sites, and to all the enemies of Shacknews: seek not to bar our way. For we shall win through, no matter the cost!

      - Emperor of Gnushack, Steven Wong
