TSL Asylum floor 5.5 - The Asylum strikes back
« on: July 13, 2010, 04:38:13 PM »
Previously
The TSL Asylum suddenly starts to rumble and creak, like an earthquake is happening. However, the Manager knows this area is earthquake-safe, as no fault-lines(?sp) pass here. As he looks through the window, he sees a humongous crane lifting the Asylum-building. The name 'Phoenix Online' is painted on the side of the cabin of the crane with a telephone number. Calling the telephone number painted on the crane with his cell phone (since land lines have been cut due to the lifting) he gets told the whole area (aka Forum) is being (redesigned) but reassures him he will be put down in a special area reserved especially for him. The Asylum Manager leaves the Asylum via parachute and goes on holiday a couple of days.
/Previously

When he returns and looks at all the directions, he has no problems finding his home and he sees a signpost labelled 'Welcome to the Asylum' at the entrance too. "Nice", he thinks, indeed this looks like the area fit for the TSL Asylum, "Thank you very much Phoenix Online". However, when he arrives in this area there is no sign of the TSL Asylum. Luckily, when the 5th floor was built, there also was some kind of 'Beam me up Scotty'-feature installed for Staff which he decides to test just now. When he appears into his office in the TSL Asylum he notices abandoned buildings around. When querying the database as to where he is now located, it says 'The Dark Age'. When he tries to contact the building contractor again he gets an answering machine and no further response.
"This simply won't do", he says to himself, and places a few calls. Suddenly, in the Asylum-area, a new building arises from the ground. Unfortunately, floor 5 has gone missing completely, even though that was supposed to be the 4th floor's designation. So, this is floor 5.5, meaning it's got everything floor 5 had, but with a few new extra tweaks. The patients have also been moved from the old building to the new one, via the 'Beam me up Scotty'-feature, operated by the TSL Manager of course. Every patient's pc now has 'TSL-Episode One' installed on its hard drive, courtesy of the TSL Asylum's ICT-department. When a new Episode is released, it will be installed automatically.
Unfortunately, the Manager has no authority to 'sticky' a thread, which is why he hopes the 'Powers that be' would mind doing such a thing. Upon arriving in the area, he notices he also has a feature called 'Instant Message' he intends on using if he once again notices no response.
Floor 1-4 have been completely rebuilt, and now have the same features as floor 5.0, and the TSL Asylum Manager invites everyone to come visiting. He wishes to express that nobody can be 'drafted' as a patient before extensive evaluation. Actions can only be admitted for evaluation if done in this area called 'PoStudios Forum' and even then, if the TSL Manager is notified of these actions. He is a busy man these days.

I'm pretty sure I was never evaluated. I call shenanigans! How do you know I'm crazy if I was never evaluated? HOW DO YOU KNOW? *breaks down sobbing*

PS I think there's been tweaks in the building layout, I can't find the kitchen anymore. Snacks? SKITTLES! :D

Weldon walks into the room, glances around, and gets a thoroughly confused look on his face.  Perhaps part of his mind has somehow slipped into the hyperspace arsenal?  In any event, it's clear he has no idea what's going on, so he takes a bite of his meat lover's pizza and wanders back over to the technical support building to wait for something to happen that he can comprehend.  Or until he finds a million dollars in the arsenal, whichever comes first.

Is there like a member list from the old 5th floor? just so we know which patients are at large.

I'm officially no longer waiter here at this fine establishment, sent in my  resignation and everything, now just a guest... but perhaps I can find my cactus and hula outfit, lost it in the transfer somehow...

If we keep up with these terrible jokes, I'm afraid CC will punish us! XD

Hi crazies - just thought I'd come visit you all and give you my awesome salutations before casually walking back out the door again since I'm in no way crazy and have in no way been in the Asylum for several years.

Why thank you very much, Jafar - it's a look I parade proudly!

I was admitted before the times of "evaluations" - in fact, I was one of the people who the Asylum was originally built for...  But don't tell CC that I admitted to that!
