I liked the idea of using desserts that someone mentioned a while ago, mostly because replacing a swear with 'Gooseberry Fool' really tickled me.
This is the earliest reference I can find to gooseberry fool being used as a filter, so maybe c-m holds all the answers.

It's definitely not a default though, they are all manually made.
I'm pretty sure someone in the mod room mentioned the idea of a dessert-themed swear filter before that, but that was way back before we opened up shop, so I don't remember who it was that came up with gooseberry fool.

Hey Chaps,

If you're interested, we're planning to hold one of our most popular forum games, Are You a Werewolf? shortly.

I believe you have played versions of Mafia on here. Our versions can end up being supremely epic. It's a hell of a ride and would be great to see some of you take part.

The rules are pretty simple.

The aim is to get Denster & Staydead killed by day 3.


I'm new by the way ;)

So are you still in the talking stage with a few other forums or will this be the only one?

Re: Super Affiliates - New Affiliate GNamer!

Hello SONM! I'm Balladeer, one of the admins. of GNamer. Huge thanks to OR for reaching out to us. Magazine survival fora have got to stick together, right? :cry:


So, a little bit about the forum you're affiliating yourselves with (FOOOOOOOOLS).

We too arose from the ashes of a dying magazine/site - in our case, Nintendo Gamer. In its last days, it was a website managed solely by Chris Scullion; before that, it was an unofficial magazine (dare I say "the unofficial magazine"?), known variously as NGamer, NGC, N64, and Super Play.

It was know for its quirky humour, interminable (yet funny) footnotes, odd scores (Doki Doki Majo Shinpan famously got "NO / 100"), and "words everywhere", among others. Our penultimate editor was one Matthew Castle - sound familiar?

As for the forum, it's very much a product of the magazine(s). If SONM is a thriving metropolis, GNamer is more of a quiet village. Fewer users, yet our posts (from what I've seen) contain more words on average. We're not above the odd reaction .gif post, mind. We've got a particular emphasis on humour (that's definitely "humour" with a "u"). And our language in places is probably a bit fruitier than yours.

We've got a selection of emoticons that include Pac-Man, Captain Falcon, and a guy beating a dead horse. We change our subtitle every day, based on user suggestions, usually to horrible puns. We have a regular three-monthly "Skypecast", and an irregular podcast, in which we talk nonsense.

And we like to think that we're closely associated with The Rotating Platform, a podcast staffed by three ex-NGamer (etc. etc.) staffers, and with a similar sense of humour. We're not sure if they know that.


As for me, I was Balladeer on CVG and ONM-as-were too, as well as Tindeck and Cricinfo. That probably sums up my main interests pretty well. Real life means that I have less time to pursue most of them, though.

Hoping to see some of you on GNamer! And I'm sure I'll be around SONM too. :)

Hi, I'm the admin on this site with complete control but everyone pretends I'm not, it's a running joke.

Well, Balla just beat me to posting, but as you can see our newest affiliate is GNamer! I think Balla himself gives the best introduction above, but here's a little more from us:
GNamer is the successor forum to NGamer, the UK's unofficial Nintendo Magazine.
Why we like GNamer: GNamer is another videogame forum that shares a similar origin story with Super ONM. Back in the days of UK Nintendo Magazines, NGamer was ONM's big rival, but now that both communities have struck out on their own following their respective magazine closures, that rivalry is a thing of the past and we are embracing our shared interests. As Nintendo and gaming fans alike, we're happy to be affiliated with GNamer and hope that they'll be around for a long time yet. They also put together a great podcast, so check it out!
From a personal perspective I think it's great that we've made another friend amongst the ex-magazine community, and hopefully our affiliation program will continue to bring benefits to all involved. GNamer is a pretty cool place so I encourage you all to go check it out, and maybe listen to a few podcasts (:

Great choice for an aflliate site. Makes a lot of sense.

I did see a bit of that site once during ONM's final months and I saw a few interesting posts that basically gave away at the time that ONM was closing. Looks like a good site in general.

I'm ZeroJones, another GNamer guy, here to talk games and take names. Well, maybe not names - it'd remind me too much of work. :roll:

Gotta say it's strange to hear SONM being described as a thriving metropolis lol

Also might want to consider globaling this seeing as I don't think many people actually check Welcome anymore, I only noticed due to the addition of the affiliate link at the bottom.
