Why should the
« on: December 14, 2012, 07:26:14 am »
chat be called as one? If anything, it's a development blog right now. If you wanted, you would probably find some information about the universe's birth there, so obviously something is very wrong. As such, no other approaches are made as the partakers either have keine Lust or no capability of the sort. So could it be nerfed?

Why should people be eligble to post new threads? Thus far only Aero's threads have had any success with longetivity, plus introductions are extinct and some folks create threads for subjects that already exist. Merging them and the like is just unnecessary work that could've been avoided. So could it be wiped?

Why should people be eligble to post new replies? At increasing rates, community members are showing lacking BB-code knowledge, including but not limited to failures at quoting (which is basic at its best). Again, only Aero's posts seem to show any signs of intelligence. It's not like people would even notice the feature gone, nor mind it if they did. So could it be pulled off?

It's easy to see when you're serious...the problem is to see when you're kidding. That's why i normally put "(just kidding)" when i think i'm not serious, but it does look like i am.

Well, if i understood your post correctly(as if i did!) you're saying that there are many useless things in the forum and that the forum itself is almost useless, and it's only useful when Aero posts some news and stuff(because...well, they're about the development of the campaign). Well, it's a fact that the only topics that are kept alive are the ones that are directly(and completly) related to the campaign.

About the chat...a development blog? I understand you point of view, but it sounds wrong to me. Firstly, the chat is empty(Aero doesn't count :P) most part of the time(or, at least, when i'm there ::)).

Oh, and my knowledge of BB-code was zero when i entered the forum(no kidding) and i'm still not good at it(i can use it now though).

Okay that's it.

PS: I read you spoiler again and...i really hope you aren't the kind of guy that likes irony(...oh, wait!)

So am I serious or just kidding for you? :3

You'd not see this coming from me, but right now I think even Facebook would be more useful a place to stay at rather than this rotten hell. Here's my dramatic point; Black and hamza are gone, Aero is... well, random as he always is, Chimto disapproves of most content (that is, everything else but development) and Doom doesn't have the time. What else would you need for a sweet disaster? (Although I give Aero that randomness, within the light it's annoying but during the darkest of times here, it really pays tribute.)

About the chat...a development blog? I understand you point of view, but it sounds wrong to me. Firstly, the chat is empty(Aero doesn't count :P) most part of the time(or, at least, when i'm there ::)).

It's somewhat like this when I'm in there:

Me: How are you (insert name here)?
(Anyone else but Aero): Campaign.

Aha...

Uh, I probably did it just for you, but I really don't know how you reacted to it.

I just was about to install new buttons for the website until I heard Xarwin is doing completely new interface for the whole website. The interface theme will be same as in the game. Thus I decided to postpone the buttons. I think I'll use this theme for the book's website.

So you want chat to be removed or what?

And should I start using Twitter? I could post there each day something what has been done.

That's what the nerf, wipe and pull off stand for in there.

...What? Are you even trying to make sense at all?
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

Sure, you can, by at least bothering to add punctuations and capitalise the necessary letters; and then your post will hopefully be less repulsive.

k lets see then

"Y, I mean stealing fire from the Gods means playing God,

But I didn't mean it that way, I was being literal about his enthusiasm."

dunno if that changed anything
"Wohoo, we spent five hundred kay on the ground, isn't that great? I love wasting money."

What does 'Y' mean then?
Also, look at this:

playing God,

But I didn't mean it that way
That improperly used comma is no less repulsive than a lack of punctuations overall.

y is a common short for yes

for the comma thingy -- ive been reading too many poems -- thats where it came from
"Wohoo, we spent five hundred kay on the ground, isn't that great? I love wasting money."
