This guy seem like a terrible individual, a real bad poster and his extended family are likely bad too.

I know that some terrible brown sea poster is reading this right now so this post is for you, brave knight:

I just want you to know that it would make my day if you took a screenshot of AP's post here and posted it in a thread so we can in turn take another screen shot of it and so fourth.

Go on buddy I know you're probably super angry about people making fun of your theoretical space game but take a minute out to have a sense of humour and lets run this meta screenshot thing into the ground.

The dinner menu looks amazing.

Some people have criticised the dinner menu for being mostly jpegs of meals that they have yet to work out what the ingredients are yet.

These people have been forcibly silenced.

roughly 15 % for the whole industry on a yearly basis.

Computer game industry.

Go figure yourself, I would be impressed if you can up with a rough estimate what would be normal for CIG's employment turnover. Keep in mind CIG was a start up and they pay less than average.
And don't forget we are at least 4 years in production according to our mighty internet warlord.

Turnover is extremely varied during production cycles in video games. You get very large fluctuation in staff numbers at the beginning and end of projects as people get mass hired and laid off as they are no longer required.

What you don't usually see is a gradual and constant bleeding of top level employees such as producers, executives and other senior staff throughout the project. These people are generally there from the start and may move on as the project nears the end.

Taking on new senior staff in the middle of a project is going to be a major burden no matter how you cut it.

There's some serious loving delusional behaviour going on here with people reporting these images. I can't wrap my head around what on earth they're trying to do.... I imagine them plastering tinfoil over their windows while blabbering about how if only they can remove all the parody GIFs from the internet then their spaceship game will become real.

Pretty much someone used it on all the images in this thread not realising most of it was their own images. We know it was them who did it because they took down cooking images in this thread that had nothing to do with star citizen as well.

This is the greatest thing.

I don't know a lot about reddit, but can they go back and retroactively fix a "top" reddit post that's now pointing at a removed image? 'Cause if not and this has rendered their "top" page useless for the foreseeable future while we're able to just go in and fix our posts here.... holy poo poo that backfire is so loving funny I don't even know what to say.

I still don't understand the current sperg theory that we are trying to destroy the game and don't want it to come out. Of course we want it to come out. If loving with these nitwits is this fun on the internet imagine how much fun it will be in an actual game.

The same guys angry that we're losing interest in the game are the very same who were really upset that goons were planning on playing the game. Mental illness is the front running explanation for most of these things.

Yeah, go on Derek! Smack that crippled kid! Ruin his life hahaha kidding honest

I dunno wtf is going on with everyone talking about a crippled kid but if you go online and say "I'm going to ruin your career!!" and get called out on it, I don't think you get to say "oh but I'm in a wheelchair so I get a free pass right?". Discriminating against someone because of their disability is generally considered a bad thing, and that poo poo cuts both ways. Not that I have any idea what this individual did, but their physical abilities shouldn't make any difference when it comes to being held accountable for poo poo you say.
