just so you know, this is Vilerat

He was a bigshot goon diplomat in EVE and also the foreign service officer killed in Benghazi (also a pretty nice guy)

Technically Vilerat is still a moderator on one of the subforums despite this...so PMing him would not do you any good anyway.

I wonder what this looks like the in late game. "Yes finally the fat has been trimmed. All that remains is the sleek efficient muscle of 5 dedicated individuals. Expect to see breakneck progress! After all, Richard Garriot coded Ultima by himself. That was a great game, 5 Garriots = 5x the greatness!!!"

So what are the details of the "Smart destroys a Coke Machine" story?

On a related note, someone that can photoshop should make a :gary: version of the scene from Dr. Strangelove where the soldier shoots the coke machine and gets sprayed with soda.

It does, after all, take a solid two mouse clicks to change to a chronological view of things instead of a score-based one if that's what you want.

It's still poo poo because the nested comments completely gently caress up the "chronological" view. Even if there was no down voting reddit would still be complete poo poo for this reason, you just can't get the flow of a conversation with non sequential posts and people having to reply to each post separately. Nested comments were complete poo poo when Yahoo Groups did it and it's complete poo poo now but at least in loving Yahoo Groups you could change it to sequential view.

Thanks. I wasn't even concerned about it tbh; since a mod doing that, thereby causing me to spend money, would be the very definition of fraud and not what Lowtax intended.

I spend money on the site because it's a choice I get to willingly make. So, you know, we keep the lights on and Goons remain fully funded during these dark times of war with White Knight Redditors off their meds.

did I ever tell you about the time derek took me out to go get a drink with him? we go off looking for a bar and we canít find one. finally, derek takes me into a vacant lot and says, "here we are!" well, we sat there for a year and a half, and sure enough, someone constructs a bar around us. the day they opened it, he ordered a coke, drank it, and then burnt the place to the ground. derek yelled over the roar of the flames, "always leave things the way you found them!"

Please paywall the thread, Star Citizen forums have a forum you need to pay $10 a month to access, the subscriber forum and another one that you need to have paid $1000 to access, the concierge forums. They are getting all this funny poo poo for free and don't value it, if they had to pay they'll like it much more as that's what they expect.
