Title: Welcome friends and guests!
Post by: Keet on July 15, 2009, 10:17:34 AM
The Malton Zookeepers (=TMZ=) was a group created by players in a free-to-play browser-based multi-player game called Urban Dead. Initially started in 2005, the Zookeepers are best known for our easygoing attitude, sarcastic and sometimes (Well, maybe often) self-depreciating humor. Over the years we've expanded our ventures into other games and will continue to do so since we're thoroughly addicted to gaming of all types.

Speaking of addictions, many of us find ourselves strangely drawn to spend many hours roaming the boards in our forum. Could it be the massive entertainment section? Are the chats about games or life in general what attracts us? Is it unhealthy to sit in front of a computer for far too long in a dark room? Most likely, but we all have to go sometime and why not do it playing games and chatting with friends?

Time to explain the changes implemented not only in our forum but also with the Zookeepers in general.

In the past, one of the prerequisites of becoming a Zookeeper was the requirement to play Urban Dead. Well, no longer! We've opened up the proverbial zoo gates to anyone who has a good sense of humor, likes to play games and has a real desire to make new friends.

Register for an account and spend some time with us. If you enjoy what you see and would like to enter in to our eternal quest for humor and the perfect gaming experience, apply for membership in the "Join Us" thread. (http://www.maltoncityzoo.com/index.php?topic=3234.0)

moved on.  Anyhoo, I was setting up my account info and couldn't find any way to set up an avatar.  Is there
a minimum post requirement, or did I miss something?  Thanks.

Howdy Serutan! There was an issue a while back with SMF that allowed someone to run a malicious code simply by uploading an image, such as an avatar, and viewing it. Our site was compromised and I've been very paranoid since......plus I've been too lazy to see if the exploit was fixed.

Do you have a link to your image you can PM me? I'll upload it.

That aside, it's great to see you here! I've upgraded your status to Zookeeper and you should have access to the UD boards. :thumbup:

Well, hello hello!!  I swam away a couple years ago so I don't think anyone's going to remember me, but I just wanted to pop in and say "Hi".  I can't tell you how happy it makes me to see you guys are still around!  You were the best damn keepers a zombie dolphin could have ever asked for!


Glad to see you've taken good care of my smiley as well.  :appl:  For being disembodied, he sure is a happy little guy.

Anyway, it's great to hear from you again after such a long absence. How have you been? You might have noticed that we've made some structural changes to the forum. If you're having troubles finding anything, let me know and I'll try to point you in the right direction.

Well, you know, life out in the big old ocean is well, life.  It's got it's good side and it's bad.
I'm wading through the forums right now.  I'm sure it'll take a little bit to get back into things, but I had just wanted to say hi right off the bat before I started catching up. 
I did a search for the heck of it and I can't believe I left here before seeing the pic that BP drew of me!  :ckiss:

Sorry about how long it's taking me to reply.  Every time I've tried to get online to come back here, I've been immediately sucked into conversations/duties on another community for hours and hours.  I think I'm going to need to just avoid that website for a couple days so that I can give you guys the attention you deserve.  Everything is always so damn serious over there.  They don't make me laugh the way you guys do.

Hello lads! I'm here representing Malton Medical Staff from yon Urban Dead technological fabrication I've heard so much about. If I recall correctly, we used to be pretty good mates back before we scurried out of Roftwood like a bunch of deranged mice.

Well now we've scurried back into Roftwood like a bunch of deranged doctors, and we'd love to discuss diplomatic relations / massive parties with you once more!

Err... where should I do that, exactly?

If you have anything particularly sensitive to discuss, you could either PM one of me or Angry Parakeet, or we could make a VIP lounge for you. Though in our experience, we often end up making VIP lounges for groups that never end up using them. You'd have to promise to post in it regularly or we break your knees. :beat:

As for parties, those can be discussed out in the open in the public UD section of the forum that seems most relevant to your subject. I will leave the issue of relevance in your capable hands.

Hey guys Steve the Decimator of The Fortress here!

I was wondering how much contact you still came in with our group. You were listed on our board having no official Ambassador from us here. So I would like to apply for the spot. Also if you are in contact with us who is on our forum from this board?

In short I am asking if I can be your Fortress ambassador and who makes contact on our forum from your end?
Title: Re: Welcome friends and guests!
Post by: KoB on May 19, 2010, 09:22:24 AM
Our Petting Zoo outpost in Shackleville has all sorts of interactions with the Fortress, though I don't think I've seen you guys much around the zoo proper. FSM used to go on your forum, but I don't know if he still does. As for you, Mr the Decimator, we need to put you through extensive interviews and psychological evaluations if you're to become our new ambassador. We also accept bribes in lieu of qualification.

If you believe yourself up to the task, and can afford us, I suppose we could give you access to the private Petting Zoo area (that just sounds dirty) of the forum, where we coordinate things like the constant rot reviving of James Orlando.

Yeah our battle teams do alot of roaming and unfortunately I don't think we stop by the zoo too much. Although I do remember the petting zoo quite fondly. Good bunh of guys hanging around shackleville there.  :hiwave:

Well anyway Im going to make it official today on our forum and as long as they say its cool I will be your new Fortress Ambassador. Really doesn't require much on either end but if we are in your area I will be sure to post!

Just let me know when it becomes official and I'll give you the access rights. And don't forget about the bribe, that was the most important part.

It is official! Got the go ahead today.

As far as bribes go money doesn't do us much good in this post apocalyptic world. So how bout a case of beer?  ???

Sold! I've given you Fortress access (which might lead to a secret VIP lounge somewhere around here, but I can't be bothered to dredge it up; feel free to use it if you can find it) and Petting Zoo access. Enjoy your stay and feel free to poke around and participate in the general hijinks sections of the forum and wherever else you have access to.

[This message is from Devon Hampton, of The Fortress Team Anaconda, who happens to be operated by the same real life person as DEM's Doctor Golf, but is maintaining a completely separate UD existence, of course.]

Hey guys, I stopped by on a mission and saw the zeds were merrily chomping on everyone in the Lion Enclosure.  I was horrified, but lacked the AP to help.  I am in the area with about 5 other members of Anaconda.  Part of our mission is to ensure the zoo enclosures are at their desired barricade levels.  So we will be happy to help get things stabilized at the zoo, and would like some guidance on how we can best fit in and support your efforts.
I am tentatively planning for us to do a (more-or-less) coordinated strike around 24:00 GMT Thursday on the Lion Enclosure, although that is subject to a lot of variables, such as whether you still need it, and whether I can actually get any of my team to sign on to UD tomorrow.  :swear2:
Thanks,
Devon Hampton.
The Fortress, Team Anaconda

I'll tell everyone in the Lion Enclosure to stop being so damned delicious. Aside from that, we don't typically do a lot of coordinated missions around here, mainly because we lack coordination. Maybe someone will see your message and join your assault? :shrug:

Support is always welcome in the form of disposing of unruly guests and helping with the RPs, and of course barricading to the plan. That's about the extent of our strategic planning.
Title: Re: Welcome friends and guests!
Post by: FlyingSpaghettiMnstr on March 03, 2011, 08:21:41 PM
Some say our plan isn't strategic enough but I have a chalk board here with some X's and O's on it that says otherwise.

Post by: Doctor Golf on March 04, 2011, 01:50:49 AM
Okay, I understand your strategy better now.  I'll have team Anaconda search for more X's.  That should keep the zeds out of the Lion Enclosure.
:thumbup: :wacko:

One of my guys just killed a zed in the aquarium, so I just let them all know the aquarium and reptile house are no kill/revive/barricade zones.
You don't know of any specific zeds we might encounter that we should regard as friendly, do you?
Title: Re: Welcome friends and guests!
Post by: FlyingSpaghettiMnstr on March 04, 2011, 03:18:05 AM
Friendly zeds usually mention they're Zookeepers. Also, the Reptile House is supposed to be infested with worshippers. If you see them in there they are allowed to be there and have permission to barricade up to VSB.
Title: Re: Welcome friends and guests!
Post by: Doctor Golf on March 04, 2011, 08:45:53 AM
we revived a couple of you peeps just now.  sorry i forgot to FAK.  I'm still a noob. :loser:
Title: Re: Welcome friends and guests!
Post by: Keet on March 04, 2011, 09:46:43 AM
Thanks for the help Doc. The Lion, Bear and Giraffe enclosures are usually kept at EHB; the Elephant house to the west and the Reptile house to the east at VSB; and as you know the Aquarium with no cades.

Generally speaking most zookeepers prefer to be alive and will head to a nearby RP. If they're hangin' around someplace they shouldn't be...oh well, they gonna end up dead. There is one zombie who used to hang around the zoo all the time but I haven't seen in months or even years for that matter; I think his name was Ketchelbank or Bust.

Again, thanks for the help! Our numbers aren't what they used to be in years past, but we're still doing our best to keep the zoo and it's RP's hoppin' :thumbup:
Title: Re: Welcome friends and guests!
Post by: Doctor Golf on March 04, 2011, 11:59:04 AM
I saw Ketchelbank or Bust recently, but I can't remember where.

Wiki shows Reptile House is supposed to be unbarricaded http://wiki.urbandead.com/index.php/The_Reptile_House (http://wiki.urbandead.com/index.php/The_Reptile_House)

Our mission is to revive 6 survivors and ensure the zoo cades are all at the right level.  We got 4 of the 6 revives today.
I'll check back with you tomorrow to see what the Lion Enclosure situation is.  We can take a couple of them out and cade you up but there's only 6 of us and we are not that well coordinated with our times.  Some of our members are literally on the other side of the world from the others.
Title: Re: Welcome friends and guests!
Post by: FlyingSpaghettiMnstr on March 04, 2011, 12:13:34 PM
The Cult of the Stuffed Crocodile has special permission to barricade The Reptile House for there worship ceremonies. They are there with our permission.

Well, looks like he is currently (http://www.dantebot.com/demuav/468692.gif).  I really wish I could recall where I saw him.  Something gives me the suspicion that KoB knows where he is. :zombie:
Title: Re: Welcome friends and guests!
Post by: Doctor Golf on March 05, 2011, 01:52:32 AM
Lion Enclosure now has 2 zeds in and no zeds out.  Couple of our guys got killed in the bear pit overnight.
I think we will be able to evict those 2 zeds & get it caded up tonight sometime around 2400 GMT, if you haven't already taken care of it by then.  We'll take a look at the other cades once we get the Lion's Enclosure nailed down.

(Reminder: this is Devon Hampton of The Fortress speaking, not Doctor Golf of DEM)
