Loading Ready Runners: New Recruits and How to Join

Postby Tim » 02 Jun 2009, 12:59

I'm glad you're interested in the Runners!

We had some fun with this fan club experiment, but we've decided that it makes more sense not to divide the fanbase with arbitrary "memberships". As far as we're concerned, every fan who signs up on our forums to hang out with us and with each other is a Runner.

We should be removing Runners badges soon, as well as either opening up the "Runners" forum, or removing it, depending on if we think it's necessary.

Thanks,

Tim



***************************

THIS SECTION IS ONLY MAINTAINED FOR RECORD-KEEPING

How Can I Join the Runners?
That's a fantastic question! There will be two ways for you to join.

The first way to join is to participate in a Runners Operation. These operations will be happening at least once a month (hopefully). The first has already been posted at LoadingReadyRunners.com. Anyone who participates in a Runners Operation will be given the opportunity to join the Runners as a Recruit.

The second way to join is to be nominated by an existing member of the Runners. These nominations will be dealt with on the Runners forums and/or by Private Message and email. (The details for how nominations will work are still being ironed out, but the system should be up and running within the next week or two.)

Runners Benefits
Runners earn the right to join the Bosses and me in the secret, Runners-only forum, where we will be wearing fine jewellery, enjoying the company of attractive people, and driving around in cars with extravagant hydraulic bouncing systems while we listen to repetitive and derogatory "music" at an unreasonable volume. The Runners forum will also be used for discussing Operations, planning Runners events, and more.



If you have any questions about any of this, post them in this thread.


------------------

Recruit Lists

For a full list of Runners members, check the GoogleDocs spreadsheet.

Batch 1, June 2, 2009

I hope that everyone will join me in congratulating the first batch of recruits into the Loading Ready Runners! These new recruits earned their place in the Runners by daring to forego the comfort and security of internet anonymity to post a pictures of themselves in a Loading Ready Runners costume. Congratulations, Recruits!

So we only have to participate? We don't have to win?

Hurrah, there is hope!

EDIT: and congrats to the recruits! We look up to you in admiration.

I've added all of those people to the usergroup, but it lists you all as "Pending" even though I've "approved" you. Can people try going into their User Control Panel, click Usergroups in the left sidebar, and then see if you have to "accept" being added to the group? I'm not 100% how that end of it works.

Edit: Never mind. I think it's working now.

Congratulations to all the recruits!

Also, will there be a place that archives the pictures of everyone in Runners outfits? I mean, I know that they are in the thread for that one LRRCast, but will there be a place with every pic just there, and for people who missed the contest to submit their own photos of themselves in Runners gear?

Also also, love the look of the Runners website. Fleur-de-leis are now manly!

Re: the Runners costumes pictures, it's under consideration. I don't know how we're going to handle that yet.

Also, I realized I had to add in Lord Chrusher and Shandi, since they were in Runners gear at the Kei Kon panel and had their pictures posted in the podcast challenge thread. I can't remember the forum name of the third guy, though, wearing the 8-bit tie. I know his YouTube account name is something like captainfnogg or something... Can anyone help me out here? This is kind of embarassing. O_O

For those considering joining the Runners, the initiation ceremony (for non-family members) may or may not include viewings of Twilight, hours of Desert Bus with no access to caffeine and a surprise meeting with Mr. Ballzmatron. :evil:

Are you Runner enough?

Anyways,congrats to the new runners!

as soon as there's an Operation within my capacity to attempt I will.

I really wanna be a runner... Been on this site since Quantum Documentary and clearly remember site Version 1.0 I consider myself a Hardcore LRRite. And I can't wait to have the chance to be a Runner.

i took part in the most recent challenge. is it a problem if i have never done any remixes before and hence it's really amateurish and poorly edited?

I second that. Seeing as how she was a gang leader of a rival gang and chose to 'merge' her gang with The Runners, she probably should get a fairly high rank, as well. You know, past executive experience and all that.

Edit:

Um, isn't that how we all learn? It's just that most of us fail a few times in private before having the cajones to post it online for all to see or hear. If you're willing to expose yourself to everyone..let me rephrase that, if you're willing to expose your "amateurish" efforts to everyone, then go for it. You're not going to find a high proportion of people flaming you for your entry. No one's expecting The Grey Album from you.

For the Runners photos it wasn't the first time I've put together costumes, bling or even a gangsta outfit before. That was the first time I've written and edited a video, however. Graham could tear it to shreds scene-by-scene, but he knew it was an "amateurish" effort and praised it in that light.

Or he could've praised it because you proved your Canadian...oscity via curling and literally shot at a Twilight poster.
