  • I sent them a rude and sarcastic email. I guess it caught their attention so they gave me a key.

  • Had to take a survey on a computer that isn't mine, so the specs of this computer don't even meet the required ones. I hope that doesn't affect my chances, I sent them an email. What kind of emails did you guys send them?

  • Valve say you stand a much better chance at getting into the tf2 sfm Beta if you upload alot of stuff to the workshop. Source : [url]http://www.sourcefilmmaker.com/faq/[/url]

And I can't really model or texture (I've never [i]really[/i] tried, although I'm sure if I put a lot of time into it), so that's not an option for me. It doesn't mean that I wouldn't make sweet sweet love with SFM.

  • I'm not sure if it's justifiable that they derive some (if not a lot) judgment based on workshop contributions. I, for one, have never taken interest in designing new weapons. I am interested in animation, however. Sure, those who have participated in the workshop must have some knowledge of 3D programs, but that doesn't mean I don't.

  • You think this would get me a key or ban me from getting keys? It'll look familiar so I B coded the parts I changed Subject: How dare you not give me an SFM key [quote]What the fuck [b]do you think you're doing[/b], you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the [b]Professional Assassin Academy[/b], and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on [b]Teufort[/b], and I have over 300 [b]recorded kills[/b]. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire [b]BLU[/b] armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with [b]NOT giving me animation tools, the only reason I hopped on board to your services[/b]? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of [b]Cloak n Dagger spies[/b] across the [b]Badlands[/b], and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, [b]email reader[/b]. I can be in [b]any server[/b], anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my [b]bare damn hands[/b]. Not only am I extensively trained [b]with the Unarmed Combat[/b], but I have access to the entire arsenal of the [b]Mann Company[/b] and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the map, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your [b]negligence[/b] was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have [b]sent a fucking beta[/b]. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead [b]if you don't heed these commands of giving me what I came to your service for.[/b][/quote] Edit: I guess these funnies mean I have to send it, but I'm gonna send it under an email that isn't associated with my account

Well, you still get what I am saying.

  • Fuck you Steam. I had to restart my comp, boot steam up to see a little prompt as I'm writing my doubts for even getting in the beta. "There is 1 new item in your inventory.". My heart literally skips a beat, I anxiously click the box and let it load [t]http://gyazo.com/078c1962c3a99cf29882d6ff0336dc4e.png?1340961952[/t] [img]http://i.somethingawful.com/forumsystem/emoticons/emot-smith.gif[/img] It's.. not new, I redeemed that coupon hours ago.. Why steam? why?
