The forum does have an attach function, so it would probably be a good idea to store some of these gems that way.

I literally have never seen anyone use it tho'.

To be fair to them, we've been empty quoting Dr Smarts promise to "burn down their jpegs" ITT.

What did we expect? We started this goons. We are the monsters.

But the jaypegs are actually burning in this very moment. Look at the first 10 pages.

The best thing is none of us even has to do anything Chris Roberts is doing all the hard work of trolling his own most loyal fans to their faces when he says things like i'm not going to give you guys dates anymore.

I really want to be the fly on the wall for that one. Did they plan for their fans to be happy with that?

Because the thought process you have to follow to get to this conclussion is insane.

"We have basically nothing to show them, but thankfully we can actually and realistically expect them to be happy if we tell them that we won't do anything anymore."

Because they couldn't have just walked up there and hoped for the best. No, they realize that their fanbase is a full on cult at the moment. It's insane.

e: And they are actually using that to their advantage.

This thread and the last are always lovely. You see people, and they evolve. A little character arc. People who see their wrongdoings turn around and become...a better human being. If only slightly. But that is more than you can expect.

Philmography 5 points 44 minutes ago

I've said it before and I'll say it again: anyone who expected SC to come out before 2016 was clearly delusional about the realities of game development, both in terms of production times for such a huge project and regarding the necessity for studios to low-ball their delivery estimates in order to keep consumers and investors interested. I backed the game 2 years ago and will be very happy to wait another year, or even two, if it means we'll get the game that we're all hoping for.

edit : https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitize...only_ones_with/

Clearly the people are delusional for trusting CIG.

Oh wait.

Everything aside, Reddit is an awful website from a technlogical standpoint. Who commented on who, and when, and what?

This makes shitposting hard. It also uses some bullshit special snowflake markup language and not BBCode like normal people.

What's funny is that is wrong too because the first images to get taken down where DSmart's images in the OP of the thread and we all thought he just couldn't use img tags right at first so goons gave him a hard time not knowing it was a bot attack.

Derek Smart made many good games.
Shame on us for thinking he can't use forum tags.

Nope. I had nothing to do with it. I first noticed they were using DMCA takedown requests on imgur when Goons kept bitching at me for not using image tags correctly. On checking my imgur account as well as some images I had posted from my iPad while not logged into imgur, were all gone.

Someone definitely wrote a bot and screwed it up royally because it also hit some Reddit images. Like I said, they're morons. And clowns. As in moronic clowns.


Yup

I dunno what you mean man, my last design just took me a little longer to lay groundwork on than usual. Weird.

You'd be surprised. We are almost a state company, and do a lot of research projects for the EU. I am often the sole programmer for 2 or 3 projects, and usually don't have to do a lot of paperwork.
So when I know that one of our work packages says "We need this done next week Wednesday", and it's literally just a few hundred lines of code, I basically have an entire week off, write that poo poo on my weekend and...yeah.

So more than once the state literally paid me to shitpost on SA.
