Might as well sign me up for the list. Here's hoping, right?

This topic is now about Middle Eastern fruit. I don't know what this "beta" thing you refer to is.

You are having a date right now. Assuming that you are actually in Texas, that date is 12 August 2011. :P

That's not necessarily true - if he's never seized the day, he's never 'had' a date.

13 thousand posts, eh? Cool, cool...
Declaring ownership of threads and making it a personal mission to ruin them?
Hm. Maybe not cool per se. Absurd thread age notwithstanding.

First off, I have not claimed ownership of the thread. I merely changed the topic. Had I asserted ownership, I would have laid some smack down on GreenRock for further changing the topic from fruit to relationships.

Second off, the original thread was not worth the silicon is was stored on. When IV are ready to beta test the game, they will call for testers. It is well nigh certain that this thread will have no bearing one way or the other. I can do nothing to ruin this thread because it was ruined from the start.

Finally, did you really register an account just to chastise me? Really? I find that to be really, really funny. I have a mental image of a guy in a cape, running from forum to forum, enforcing a particular code of ethics. There are lots of drums and trumpets. Hilarious.

Do I detect a hint of defensiveness from someone with 13 thousand posts?

Value judgments to the quality of a thread are your opinion, no? People are allowed to make dumb threads. No one's stopping you from making a fruit thread, but unilaterally declaring topic-shift is rather ego-trippy, non?

Well, that's about it from me. Forum Caped Crusader, AWAAAY!

You are projecting. :P

No, this thread is objectively useless. The stated purpose of the original poster was to create a list of beta testers. However, IV have their own procedures for selecting testers. Hence this thread objectively serves no purpose.

Bye. I hope you enjoyed your stay as forum nanny.

I think I already wrote Subversion

Postby maninalift » Fri Aug 12, 2011 9:46 pm

I already wrote subversion on my spectrum 64 in 1992, and yes I know it was already 10 year old hardware but such was the efficiency of my city-generation algorithms it didn't matter.

Does that qualify me to be a beta tester?

And before anyone gives a smart-ass comment, no I can't play the one I wrote. I didn't have a tape drive so I couldn't save it.

They are. Doesn't change the fact that this opinion is in fact correct.

bobusdoleus wrote:People are allowed to make dumb threads.

Well they really shouldn't be. In fact, around here I think the consensus is shifting towards "it's really not". With the exception of the portal to hell we call the Defcon forums, which I think we can all agree on is a textbook example of a lost cause.

That's rich coming from someone who has basically changed to subject to a discussion about changing topic subjects.
