Haven't you ever seen The Great Escape?

The guy who plays Ducky on NCIS has a part as an Irish guy named Ashley Pitt. Great film.

Well, my name's "Jade". Sorry for thinking you as a different gender, as most people do when they see my name >_>

You should also not confuse gender with sex. Sex is what you are born with (i.e. two X chromosomes, an X and a Y, or something different); gender is the role assigned to you by society, or which you adopt for yourself.

One of the benefits of minoring in Sociology is that when I see questions asking about one's gender or ethnicity is that I now know all how to give them snarky answers. Since such questions are usually on job applications, I usually choose to refrain.

We sure can, but personally I deem the material in question to be too disturbing for public posting. ;)

As for the credits, I believe we were asked at some point to provide that information or consent to be placed in the credits.

Yup. The credits seem to be lifted straight from Multiwinia.

Indeed. as partof your beta signup you had to give your real name for use in the credits, and your nickname is whatever your forum name was/is.

And RabidZombie guessed, the credits are more or less lifted straight from Multiwinia/Darwinia (I think it's an amalgamation of the two, although Multiwinias were already lifted from Darwinia in the first place!)

Unless I'm mistaken, a healthy chunk of the original Multiwinia credits ended up coming from the forum topic in the beta gameplay discussion where everyone was asked how they would like to appear in the credits (in particular, this would explain my absense) - otherwise I believe that yes, the rest of the credits may well be constructed of real [insert handle here] name.

I'm fairly certain that I'm only in one of IV's game credits lists, and if it had occured to me, I probably wouldn't even feature in that list, either, although I'd feel bad because it would leave them with an odd number of names.

(edit - I'm actually more interested to learn the origin of the names which don't in fact come from either list)

I just got Darwinia+ on the marketplace and loving it so far. My Darwinia skills are a bit rusty but remembering what to do. I do hope the titles goes good in the Marketplace. I have already preached about it to my fellow xboxers so a few more downloads should be on your way
