  1. GET TO WORK, DARN YOU!

  2. Responding to your wall comment visible in the right sidebar in the forum root - Uno, of course, has indeed given up completely.  Sounds like for good reason, though no idea why it's SO bad for him, and not me on my weak machine and poor connection...

     

    Solver ain't coming back, y'all.  If the members want WPC fixed in any of the various ways it needs, the members are going to have to figure out how to do something about it.  Solver wouldn't get in your way.  Please spread the word, GK...

      My internet is via a cell phone if I want more than authentication right now.  Purchased a new house, and the place isn't properly wired, and cannot afford 5K worth of drywall holes to run proper wiring.  I get speeds via wireless of less than good old AOL (which, I discovered, the next door neighbor still uses....).

      In the summer, I have the time.  the other 10 months of the year, I don't.  High school teacher equals 60 hours of work in a week, along with time I want to spend with family (2.5 year old daughter is a hoot - although exhausting).

      Well, that wasn't aimed at you personally, although I find you a smart & mature member capable of stepping up and doing much good IF you had the time and the inclination.  -But, although it inspired me to make a general appeal, I just wanted to plant the idea that the members needto save WPC, and could...

    <p>Yeah; 5 disappointed the heck outta people and ended up dealing a blow from which we're only now recovering. But if you like it, that's great; you're not alone, and we could use some activity in the forum...</p>

    <p>The secret to good trolling, you know, is to do it wittily and only to your friends. <img src="<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/biggrin.gif.17e92a9dfcbed6e53e8028489c24031f.gif" alt=":D" /> I'm a major practitioner of that myself.</p>

    <p>CivFanatics, yes. Civilization Gaming Network is CGN. Also this: <a href="http://alphacentauri2.info/forum/" rel="external nofollow">http://alphacentauri2.info/forum/</a> but it's largely aimed at Multiplayer and there's not an awful lot there - but worth a look.</p>

     

  11. <p>CivFanatics, yes. Civilization Gaming Network is CGN. Also this: <a href="http://alphacentauri2.info/forum/" rel="external nofollow">http://alphacentauri2.info/forum/</a> the most active online SMACX community, bar none.</p>

    <p>Your best bet is to start a thread in AC asking these questions - this is by far the healthiest SMAC(X) site in English I know of; bdanv, our European moderator says this is the most active on the web, but he'd be able to tell you more about the scene as far as other languages go. I understand the German site is healthy, but that's all I recall.</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>You might also want to google Apolyton, CFC, CGN and Alpha Centauri 2 for forums I know of in English with some SMAC(X) content.</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>Some of these questions I don't even know who to ask about, so again, best to start a thread and see.</p>

    <p>Oh - I checked, and you need to find your confirmation email and finish registering before you can post...</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>Is there some reason two other users are registered from the same IP as you?</p>

     

  20. <p>I keep seeing you come by and try to create a thread in SMAC(X) MP. What's the problem you're seeing with the "no permission" message? Should I put you in touch with an admin?</p>
