First order of business: get an avatar or the avatar police will come and get you. We don't have avatar police you say? Ok...just wait and see.

Just kidding. Welcome. A word of advice: Change your pic. The default pic tends to be an object of support for logical fallacies.

Welcome! Don't mind the grammar police. Judging by your user name, you arent likely to mind them anyway. Check out the podcast and quick looks. Once you get a look around, you might want to try drinking from the Jar.

Since this is a boring troll thread anyway, what the fuck does "<>" mean?

What is <>? That my friend is a plumbob from The Sims series. At the E3 The Sims 3 Console presentation Paul Barnett had the idea to put them above people's head using head ware. (info from Jothel and Red12b). People were coming out of the EA booth with these ''things'' on there head. Someone he worked wish s aid how it resembled a gang sign, so he put his hands over his head in. Giant Bomb also had a guest at the live stream, Leigh Alexander. All hell breaks loose when they are arguing how much it cost Activision to rent out the Staples Center and then -

See the full video here.

Why was this done? Well I don't know exactly but it was random and funny so ''<>'' was born.

@atomic_dumpling: It is the Sims diamond Giant Bomb inside joke.

From the official guide to Giant Bomb:

It is specifically a "plumbob" from The Sims series. At the E3 The Sims 3 Console presentation Paul Barnett had the idea to put them above people's head using head ware. (info from Jothel and Red12b). People were coming out of the EA booth with these ''things'' on there head. Someone he worked wish said how it resembled a gang sign, so he put his hands over his head in <>. Giant Bomb also had a guest at the live stream, Leigh Alexander. All hell breaks loose when they are arguing how much it cost Activision to rent out the Staples Center and then -

And so <> became our funny gang sign. Hope that helps, duder. <>

Thanks. I remember that stream, but for the love of god, I could not watch it because of that drunk lady. Though I wonder why I never noticed the "<>" in the forums before. Same goes for all those bronies lately -- good lord …

This is exactly how a I welcome newcomers who can't use at least somewhat OK grammar.

Also, hello duder! Don't fucking spam the forums!

Welcome.

Pay little attention to grammar nazis, watch some of the features, visit the hamburger forum, and above all... have a good time.

One of the best features of the Giant Bomb forums compared to others is the better grammar and spelling.

It's important to keep the deck clean. U NOW WUT IM SAYIN?
