- Resorting to personal attacks when participating in discussion/debate.
- Extended Roleplaying
Criteria for "Regular" StatusEdit
- Chatting regularly
- Friends with the other Regulars
- Reasonable activity
One would think the regulars are a bunch of computer science geeks, but we're just regular geeks.
And (just a fair warning) many a troll (and "txt-spkr") has met their doom at the hands of certain UTM regulars.
Known as "liljack" or "bj". Even though he is 6 foot 3 inches, 270 lbs. (most of it muscle, mind you) He lives in Texas. Discovered how awesome chat was when he finally came to the UTM. Is into Rock and Metal. Metallica, Red, and Avenged Sevenfold are among his top ten. Despite being on the other side of the United States, he is xXEvermoreXx's "big brother". One of a handful of Christians in the UTM, which is sometimes a source of conflict with other regulars. Works as a gravedigger, but may end up doing something else after college.

18 year old American male who lives in America. One of the youngest in the UTM. He is obsessed with proper grammar, much like DB and Matsteo, but is much more lenient.

(Knew shimmer, & Staz, & DBscotsdragon previously; being particularly close friends with shimmer and one of the few people able to comprehend her at her less coherent times)
Appears to have some form of active dislike towards DBscotsdragon, and it is at least somewhat reciprocated, due to their differing opinions and methods on certain issues.

Enjoys running marathons and Wesnoth, and is very much a Chivalrous Pervert.
One of the few regulars that appears to have a working knowledge of DBscotsdragon.

Is currently not on often due to pregnancy, and her having newly-settled in Korriban instead of UTM
May not actually exist, but certainly talks enough to make up for any lack of reification.

Quotes of the UTMEdit
This section is for quotes made in, or about, The Universal Turing Machine.
Anton Szandor LaVey: “Yeah, well, I'm crazy, but I'm not stupid, hopefully. And I think we're all a bit crazy if we do anything that's deviant. I've studied a great deal on deviance and aberrant behavior. Most of the interesting people I've ever met have been deviant in one form or another.”
Anton Szandor LaVey: "Satan has been the best friend the church has ever had, as he has kept it in business all these years!"

A Note Regarding RoleplayingEdit
There was a Chatzy room set up specifically for UTMers who wish to roleplay.
The Admins were DBscotsdragon, Matsteo, & Noobmasterz.
We hoped to run a semi-regular session of a simple RP system.
There were murmurings of TaiJParry wanting to run a low-level Supers campaign in GURPS, also.
If enough interest is expressed, it would be remarkably easy to set it all up again.
I want to learn more about Turing machines!Edit
These links to the domain of questionable knowledge might help you on the way. Warning: heavy stuff!
