The [GM]Dave Fan Club Update

Okay, donations for the month of April are now closed.

Of course, you probably figured that out since it is now May.

Things went very well, I must say, and I am very impressed with how much people seem to appreciate the blog.

Is it too soon to start calling you Daviacs? Or Davites?

I will be doing up a mailing list later this evening and should get your free Fan Giftpack sent out by tormorrow. I'm still working on a few odds and ends to make it something the fans will enjoy.

The contest for highest donation of the month was extremely heated. I thought it would go to someone bidding 7 or 8 dollars.

I was wrong.

I will not say the highest donation, but I will tell you I nearly fell off my chair when I saw it. There were a number of very high amounts, but one was head and shoulders above.

That supporter will be contacted this evening to see if and how he would like to take part in a blog entry. Should that person decline, I will move to the second highest donation.

Again, thank you very much for the support. It means a lot.

Tonight, when I'm feeding some mouth breathing fish botter to a dragon, I'll be smiling.

Well... smiling more than usual.

Is [GM]Dave GoblinSmithy?

 
At 11:25 AM, Blogger Risa said...

I agree with Cards, congrats on the public support. :)


BTW, I'm kinda surprised you haven't had any mention on guild campers and the Wamoura cocoons. I mean, that's like the Short Bus drive-thru there...

Keep up the good work chlorinating the FFXI pool. I'm looking forward to your next blog.

I think lord enders is the guy that made the gm call during the [GM] Drinking Game.... Nothing passes this guy by.

Wow. I just read. All your Posts [GM]Dave. I'm proud, yet wary of ever meeting you. I hope if I ever you do. You'll be linent ; ;

Keep up the Hilarious work :P

Congratulations Dave!

I apologize for not donating; rent was due yesterday and I was slightly strapped... ; ;

Will there be open donations for May? I would very much love to be a member of your fan club. =P

"Is it too soon to start calling you Daviacs? Or Davites?"

Does that mean that your religion, Davism, has started? Did the ceremonial wine (read: whisky) arrive?!

Yay!!!

davist is easier to pronounce

Well, I can't donate this month either, but since my name IS Dave, I can volunteer this, for at least 20 years now I've been referring to "The First Church of Dave". I gladly donate this to [GM]Dave if he wants it. The first commandment of course, "I am the Dave, THY Dave, and thou shalt have no Dave's before Me...."

Peace

or Death to James.... sorry, if there's a job I hate, it's THF, especially a loud mouthed one....

finally a loud bright voice in the darkness of player noobness.

 
At 2:12 PM, Blogger Wickerbasket said...

Bellemithra, do you have any pictures of you being strapped? I'm slightly curious myself - give me a ring.

 
At 3:32 PM, Blogger Bellemithra said...

LOL LOL LOL

I meant I was strapped for cash silly!

 
At 4:11 PM, Blogger Galkizzle said...

Alright, well, I'm not sure, but I don't think Dave wants any strapping going on in his comments.

 
At 4:17 PM, Blogger Avihai said...

Grats on the support. If I could donate I would -_-

Keep up the great work (^.^)b

 
At 4:30 PM, Blogger Dantaro said...

Indeed, congratulations on the support sir. Behold, the Church of Dave has recieveth its first collections!

 
At 4:38 PM, Blogger Galkizzle said...

Sorry I can't donate.. I don't have any credit/paypal/any of that crap. I dont even have money.

But I'll give you 2000Gil, if you'd like:)

But I'll have to pay in installments

 
At 5:06 PM, Blogger [GM]Dave said...

The fan club will be continued each month for as long as the blog continues.

Or I achieve world domination.

Also, if you can't donate, that is still cool. I appreciate any form of support you want to give.

And, Galkizzle, if I wanted your gil, I'd just take it out of your inventory.

 
At 5:12 PM, Blogger Blaize said...

Technically, gil is listed in the Equipment menu.

I'm a pedant, and proud.

 
At 5:27 PM, Blogger Galkizzle said...

Question. Do GMs have to pay for shit from NPCs?

Or do you just wait until you get a stupid GM call to take their gil?

 
At 5:33 PM, Blogger Blaize said...

If GMs had money, then they would be able to buy all the O. Kotes at the AH and sell them off for 10,000 gil each, thus relieving the high prices (no it's not inflation stop using the term incorrectly *points at allakazham*).

They may actually have the faculty to do this, yet enjoy watching us underlings squirm... bastards!

Grats on the donations man.. and try to keep your sanity. ^^;

Hey [GM]Dave! Some Idiot in KI that actually think's your a fake.. Pfft Idiot... He made a laughing stalk of himself.. He'll be added to a dragon's menu sometime soon i hope /wink (You know who im talking about ;D)

 
At 7:32 PM, Blogger Galkizzle said...

Hey, Dave. Sorry about the comments yesterday.

Everytime anyone said you were fake, I felt obligated to.. bitch at them, and then it got out of control, and then you have over 100 comments of us fighting.

My bad:).. Don't feed me to Jormy.

 
At 8:01 PM, Blogger [GM]Dave said...

Actually, I deleted your posts because they have nothing to do with this post.

 
At 8:06 PM, Blogger [GM]Dave said...

Not you, Galkizzle. Your posts were very cool.

 
At 8:17 PM, Blogger Reeree said...

No one, GM or otherwise, has to buy fecal matter from NPCs.

You want excrement from an NPC just talk to any NPC from San d'Oria.

They spew scatological waste at you for free.

I hate San d'Orians.

Are these stories true? I'm pretty sceptical. They're funny and all. . . but I don't think they actually happened.

At 10:34 PM, Blogger Rasanette said...

My flaming has gotten more attention than any of GM Daves post ^^; Whose the winner now? Obviously not the funny awesome man that is GM Dave who by the way is an absolute fake.

 
At 11:07 PM, Blogger Glitterngld said...

I have a question. Can [GM]'s die?

 
At 11:11 PM, Blogger Stocky said...

/sigh Is there no end? Is god fake? You can't disprove it Is Davey boy fake? You can't disprove that either, so your point is invalid.

For every person that tries to say Dave is fake, there will be a million that says he's real, really, posting on a blog where nearly every reader is his fan is pretty stupid, you're just waiting to be shot down from your lofty position in the clouds.

Promptly delfate your head please.

 
At 11:36 PM, Blogger Jirizo Reborn said...

Ok, flame rant over!
This wont be another 100+ page comment rant

Hello. My name is Celyia and I am a Dave-oholic. I've been addicted for the last month and constantly need my daily fix. While it's true that addictions tend to be destructive (even more so than usual once you add a certain dragon to the equation), this is one thing I enjoy too much to give up. ;; So, forgive me while I camp this blog even more than I ever camped the Valkurm Emperor. >.>

Congrats, Dave.^^ Glad to see you getting support and I hope next month I'll be able to submit to the peer pressure and donate, too.^^

 
At 2:34 AM, Blogger [GM]Dave said...

Sigh.

Rasanette, it's only good if the people giving you attention are on your side.

Being the biggest moron is not the same as winning.

Of course, someone has to win the gold medal at the Special Olympics, too. Might as well be you.

 
At 5:14 AM, Blogger Sarah's Brain said...

Thanks once again :) This blog is becoming a daily habit...

 
At 6:21 AM, Blogger Demandred Shedohen said...

I love reading your blog, but I don't want to hear about you being paid like a high-class whore. Congratulations anyways.

 
At 8:08 AM, Blogger shithappens said...

congrats on the support you got but dont mind me saying that the post´s that you have made smell a littel of basdart operator from hell ripoff but still funny as hell. Keep up the good work.

 
At 8:41 AM, Blogger Bobwehadababyitsagirl said...

You talk about how much people whine, funny thing about it is you whine just as bad. Your jobs sucks ok we get it if you dont like it you can go hang yourself or quit you job simple as that. I find it funny as hell to read your post about how stupid people are but the sad sad truth about it is your just as retarded by pointing out other people retarded action we human we do stupid shit get over it

 
At 8:45 AM, Blogger Bobwehadababyitsagirl said...

So back in the day when I worked tech support phones, there was a pre-blogger blog (now defunct, alas woe) that a bunch of people posted to daily because human stupidity hurts, and when you're working, you have to be nice. When you hang up the phone, you can spew about what a blithering moron that caller was. Anyway, every... single... day.... someone would reply to our collective cries of pain with something along the lines of "omg u ppl are so mean how can you say such things about your customers" and "if you hate it so much why don't you get a real job" or my favorite "well this stuff is funny but real people aren't that stupid."

Oh hell yes they are. I think anyone reading this far in the comments realizes that now.

Incidentally, Goblin Smithy and [GM]Dave are the same person/writing team, but they are not the same person/writing team as Simon Travaglia who writes the One and Only BOFH (http://www.theregister.co.uk/odds/bofh/).

P.S. "you're not my f'ing customer, you're an idiot who purchased an expensive product but didn't read the manual and you're blaming your stupidity on me. i didn't even make the stinking product, or recommend it, it's just my job to explain it to you. now shut up and listen." "what the hell do you think i'm doing here? how else am i supposed to pay for college you moron?" and "quod est demonstratum"

And oh, I'm between jobs O Great and Mighty Dave so I miss out on this month :D

 
At 11:39 AM, Blogger lesa said...

why no alternate title? :(

 
At 12:22 PM, Blogger [GM]Dave said...

I take any comparison to BOFH or Acts of Gord as an extreme compliment. I'm not near as funny as either of those guys.

 
At 2:27 PM, Blogger Galkizzle said...

Dave, what are you? Hume, Elvaan, Galka (Yay for Galka!), Taru, or (God forbid) Mithra?

 
At 4:02 PM, Blogger Jirizo Reborn said...

Elvaan.. With balck hair I think..

 
At 4:34 PM, Blogger Galkizzle said...

Is he? Have you seen him?

 
At 5:28 PM, Blogger Blkdragongirl of Fairy said...

I just got my fanclub package YAY!

Thank you GM Dave you rock. And on the note of my membership card...I will never bother you about becoming a Dragon Snack. I have a hard enough time keeping myself alive...unless of course you promise to Raise III me afterwards...

Have I mentioned I love your blog?

Dave is my savior.

u gave a new meaning to the BOFH acronym! :)

 
At 10:01 AM, Blogger Nylana said...

Who cares if Dave is fake or not ? His stories are funny and entertaining... thats the only thing that matter.

I personnaly think he is not real... but it doesnt stop me from laughing when reading his post.

I think people who take the time to come here and shout that Dave is fake are really , really , really stupid... I mean... really stupid... its like shouting to everyone that SantaClaus doesnt exist... you just look like a retard doing it.. thats pathetic.

The point of all this is to entertain and maybe make a bit of money with it... where is the problem ?

/cheer GM Dave ! keep up the good work.

Not sure of the requirements to be in the fan club.. but I sure wouldn't mind joining!

Heh, well I've donated to Dave's total badassary, and I'll continue to do so.. assuming I don't get too lazy to go to work..

o.O
