Coober Pedy is definitely on my list, it's one of my stops on the Stuart Highway when going up to Alice Springs.
So on an unrelated note: I had some spare time today and somehow ended up browsing through my post history for giggles. Guess what, I actually became nostalgic for the good old days with the good old veterans, the good old naziing on grammar and forum etiquette, the good old debates on minor uncontroversial topics like death penalties and gun control, and perhaps even the good old requests for me to reboot Jelco's Weekly Poll (bizarrely, I must say - looking back I have a hard time understanding what made people enjoy them so much
). Truly a shame this place has quieted down with the Randomness, Picture Wars and TWGs. Makes me realize that I felt not so much attached to IV as to the community back then. With most of that seemingly died down it somehow feels like my upcoming 10th anniversary in this place is going to be a bit of an anticlimax...
I haven't booted up Prison Architect in...years, perhaps. (Has it been around for that long? Sure feels like it, but maybe that's just me getting old.) I'll probably have a go at it in the next couple of weeks before my travels commence, see what's changed since alpha 5 or somesuch, whichever is the latest version I actually got my hands on. Who knows, if I really enjoy it I might actually try and get more active here again and see what the new community has shaped up to be. Maybe even start a Ladder-like project, assuming no others have properly taken off yet (I guess technically I am hosting Prison Exchange, but it doesn't look like that has seen any real activity or even development in the past few months). I look forward to building a community project again, but I'd need to feel invested to sink the necessary time into it of course.
PS: I only just noticed that this topic is as old as my forum membership to the day - I never realized that. Nothing quite like a 17k-post topic that you can compare your community lifetime with to make you feel old and unaccomplished.
