As I'm beginning to fire off invites for this wave, I feel it's worth stating that I've turned off requests to join from here on out. Now that Horizon's out in the UK, the noise-to-people-who-know-who-we-actually-are ratio is falling further into the realm of noise.

Just a warning on that.

Yo bro's you guys have been playing Forza for some time now! Think I'll join you for this game if that's cool ;P XBL: Ethranis

EDIT: Jest read your UK release message. I didn't understand any of it but hope there's still a chance of joining :(:(:(

#110 Posted by PsEG (3491 posts) -

@Ethan_Raiden: That's more related to people typing in the GB name tag thinking they might be joining a region-based club rather than a site-based club. There's still some room!

#127 Edited by PsEG (3491 posts) -

As a heads-up, we are getting very close to capacity. Everybody above this post should be fine, and I'll get you in a wave of invites later today. Those of you below this post might not, depending on the number of invites accepted and whether spots I'm reserving for staff/long-time Race Night members are taken.

In short, if you're considering signing up for an account just to ask to join this club, don't, because you're almost certainly not going to get in from this point forward (unless you've talked to me on Live already, and that's exactly one of you and not a single person more). Sorry about that -- I really wish these clubs had a larger capacity, so I could accept everyone and flood all your inboxes with speed camera messages.

Heh, so was browsing the Forza storefront and some knucklehead uploaded a bunch of designs with uncensored anime boobs. I'm not so much surprised that there are anime boobs on the forza store front as I am that the time for them to appear has taken this long.

#134 Posted by EarlessShrimp (1593 posts) -

@Demoskinos: were they at least nice anime boobs?

#135 Posted by Demoskinos (13910 posts) -

@EarlessShrimp: Decently done I suppose.

#136 Posted by EarlessShrimp (1593 posts) -

@Demoskinos: then as long as they're tasteful, it was totally done as artistic expression. For the record, the definition of tasteful is probably pretty wide.

#137 Posted by Demoskinos (13910 posts) -

@EarlessShrimp: I'll give the forza mods props I flagged all of the designs and they were taken down from the storefront pretty damn fast.

#138 Posted by tonyisdeformed (17 posts) -

name is SanitaryMatress looking forward to playing with you guys

OK, quick club recap. Here's where we stand:

There are seven spots remaining before we hit the likely 100-member cap. Currently, I have twelve invites out, including one to Jeff and not including my continued attempts to check and see if any other staff member's playing Horizon.

The users below should have invites sitting in their in-game messages as of this post:

  1. alpochino
  2. JerBeep
  3. miccrhaafetl
  4. RainDog5050
  5. thebigwhiteyeti
  6. g3sundheit (was sent late due to a mis-typed gamertag -- apologies)
  7. hawtdreads
  8. Gla55jaw (somehow missed your post and sent an invite late -- sorry again)
  9. Wamos Woom
  10. L RiteHandLuv L
  11. FoxHound957

The following users have NOT been sent club invites yet, and will only receive invites slowly over several days if the last few spots aren't taken:

  1. SanitaryMatress
  2. Kroggi
  3. Roelie
  4. Hirnkastl
  5. venom568
  6. Sgt Sphynx
  7. LIL IronMan LIL

Once we're full, it will take a few weeks to determine initial inactivity, so it will take quite a bit of time to cycle in any new members. Again, accept my apologies for this, but since there's no easy "last active" indicator in-game, I end up analyzing all of the club's in-game activity and gamertags to determine who's playing and who isn't. It is, needless to say, a gigantic pain in the ass.

#142 Posted by Demoskinos (13910 posts) -
@PsEG So does activity simply mean just playing the game or showing up for the race night? Cause god knows I tried getting in the room last week several times only to have the game tell me the lobby was full.
#143 Posted by PsEG (3491 posts) -

@Demoskinos: Basically just means playing the game. So far, I'm checking multiplayer levels and my in-game messages to see who's remaining active. When I think I've determined inactive members through monitoring that stuff, I'll try to use My Forza at forzamotorsport.net and xbox.com's info to see if I can confirm the inactivity.

Given the leaderboards no longer have dates attached to the times, I'm not sure there's any reasonable way to check activity levels beyond this. It pretty much fucking sucks.

@PsEG We could do it survivor style and vote people off the proverbial Forza island. :-P
#145 Posted by EarlessShrimp (1593 posts) -

@PsEG: Do in game messages include beating things like speed cameras? Lately I've been cruising around horizon to find all the stupid discount signs (I still need 5 more and I'VE DRIVEN ALL THE FRIGGIN' ROADS). So, I'm not sure if it recognizes the fact that I'm being 'active'? I'm assuming race night attendance and such will play an active roll in lieu of the messages?

Oh, I'd also like to let the duders who sent me invites over the past couple of days know, you caught me at a bad time! I've been meaning to play online for a while, I might be on later today if anyone is interested (maybe, oh say 5:30 or 6 EST)

#146 Posted by Demoskinos (13910 posts) -
@EarlessShrimp Not going to lie...ive flirted with the idea of buying the damn treasure map and just getting the signs over with.
#147 Edited by san_salvador (135 posts) -
#148 Posted by EarlessShrimp (1593 posts) -

@Demoskinos: I've been tempted to as well unfortunately, but in the back of my mind I keep thinking I'll find one online that someone makes... There's gotta be one by now right?

#149 Posted by DwigtK (101 posts) -

Hey PsEG, Sent you a message last night on Live and you told me to post here. GT: RyMiBos

#150 Posted by icytower38 (455 posts) -

@Demoskinos @EarlessShrimp check youtube, there's a good set of video's up but have not seen any good images. My recomendation is to check the dirt driveways and car parks off the side of the roads, also there is one on the damn.
