Heya buddies,

Break out the champagne, boys! wine
And strike up the band! notes

I have reached a watershed moment here on TMP…
A moment I never thought would happen…

One of my blog posts have finally been reposted by Tango01! :p

Do you fellow bloggers remember the first time you were Tango'ed?

It's never happened to me. I'd be honored if it did but all I can do now is dream of that day. wink

Albino Squirrel05 Apr 2017 8:06 a.m. PST

I'm also still waiting for my moment in the spotlight…

Congrats. I've been ignored by Tango myself, sadly.

Larry R Inactive Member05 Apr 2017 8:32 a.m. PST

My blog posts are so rare I doubt the ever persistent Tango would catch and re-blog one of my posts!

Mars Miniatures05 Apr 2017 8:33 a.m. PST

Ah, dont you fellas lose hope.
Someday you too, may join the ranks of the Tango'ed.

Here is the blow by blow replay for you doubting Thomases! ;p

Always remember – it takes TWO to Tango….

I think…?

Unfortunately, I've taken steps so I won't ever know if/when Tango decides to repost something I've already posted here.

Great looking army by the way. Whatever technique you used on the monochrome skellies is very effective and quite creepy. What rules are you using?

You know, all said and done, I think I prefer your original blog over Tango's, its kind of …fresher.

OK, Bill, reward this man with a kitten from cage No.101

Never loose your hope my friends! (smile)

100 wargamers. They all have blogs.

They put a lot of work into their projects. Then they put in a lot of work making blog entries for those projects.

Then they post a link to said blog entries on TMP.

ALL those links are quickly blasted off the front page by a ton of copypaste spam.

ONE gets reposted.

So yeah, let's celebrate that one. Cheers.

Mars Miniatures05 Apr 2017 1:12 p.m. PST

(taps my Sarcasm Emitter 5000 to see if its working properly) Yeah this post was just some good fun.

But honestly, Ive had Tango on ignore for the last 2 years and wouldnt have known about his repost if it wasnt pointed out to me.
Even despite the fact I took him off ignore for some reason a month ago (felt I was missing out on some conversation on some thread)
Then I forgot to reblock him. But you know what… it seems his output is far less than I remember it being.
So I think I will leave him unblocked for now. Unless he starts unleashing a torrential flood of course…

For those skellies, its just good ol' drybrushing.
And Im using WHFB 7th Edition with 6th Edition Ravening Hordes.
But I will also pull stats from any edition from 1st to 8th.

I donīt understand people bitching about Tango when TMP provides tools to make said bitching pointless.

Brian Smaller05 Apr 2017 3:17 p.m. PST

I have run into a blogging and wargaming brick wall and have not done a post in months. And even when I was doing 8-10 posts a month I still never got Tango'd.

NickNorthStar Sponsoring Member of TMP05 Apr 2017 3:49 p.m. PST

You know when you've been Tango'd

Congratulations, won't ever happen with me except maybe heres what not to do.

Albino Squirrel06 Apr 2017 7:41 a.m. PST

I don't get the ragging on Tango anyway. I've discovered some cool stuff that I wouldn't have seen if not for him. He makes the title of the topic descriptive so you can just skip it if you're not interested.

I might be nice if on TMP you could see who started the topic on the page that lists topics.

Legion 406 Apr 2017 8:05 a.m. PST

Yeah … I have no problem with Tango's posts. If the topic does not interest you … don't read it. huh?

Tango0106 Apr 2017 11:11 a.m. PST

Norman D Landings…Which terrible drama you describe … you has broken my heart and hurt my soul …but… of course 99% of those who "suffer" a duplication of their threads … end up thanking me … and do not cry or tear His clothes for it … (smile)

Dear Albino… people seems to forget that exist a button named "ignore" … if you used it… as our fellow member Mars Miniature have said… you never see my threads again in the front page… problem solved!….

By the way dear Mars… I enjoyed your work a lot!.
