Look, guys. We need your help. It’s not every day that a simple network level can drive CLIQUE into a frenzy, but I might as well reveal that One Way fits the bill. Thermoplyae has regaled us time and again with stories of the One Way level, which was the inspiration for his latest offering, One Way 2.
But we just can’t imitate the original. With some hard skull sweat, we’ve tracked down the man we think is the author of One Way. His name: MelancholiaTK. Melancholia, previously known as Rabid Wombat, used to hang around the Aleph One AIM chatroom. He asked RyokoTK to teach him how to be a better player and mapper, hence his new screen name with the “TK” ending. He still appears to use MelancholiaTK as his AIM screen name, but we haven’t contacted him yet.
This is where you come in. If you have Pidgin/Gaim or Adium, we need you to set up a buddy alert. Have this alert send MelancholiaTK a message when he comes online, once and only once. The Message text needs to be as follows:
Here are instructions, if you don’t already know how to do this:
(also, don’t bother if he’s already online when you add him to your buddy list. He will have already gotten a ton of other messages.)
Pidgin: Add MelancholaTK as a buddy. Show all offline buddies (assuming he’s offline) and right-click on his name. Choose the option to “Add Buddy Pounce.” From there, make sure “Signs On” and “Send a message:” are checked. Then put “ONE WAY” into the message box. For politeness sake, be certain that “Recurring” (at the very bottom) is NOT checked; we only want this to happen once.
Adium: Add MelancholiaTK as described above, and view his name. Start a chat with him (even though he’s not online) and send the message. A pop-up should come into view, notifying you that he is not online and asking what you want to do with the message you tried to send. Select “Send when both online.”
What else can you do? Spread the word! I have made a ONE WAY button for you to display proudly on your site/forum sig/whatever. Here’s the code you’ll need:
