At first glance these may look like copies of the official website and this forum, respectively... because they are. Hope you guys won't sue me because of this, I just like the color scheme an awful lot. To all the pros out there - if you can, please save your scolding for later, this is the best I could do with my somewhat... limited, because I don't want to say nonexistent, HTML/CSS experience. So yeah. Image

The IRC will be experiencing a Polish Storm around 8 p.m (CET) on 23rd of February, please arm yourself

Good luck to you guys!

We were dumb enough to let our entire government die in a plane crash. It happend nearly three years ago and people still spew out nonsense about conspiracies, bomb attacks, gundowns and such, they can't just accept the fact that it was simply a really unfortunate accident.

I believe that this alone is enough of a reason for us to be ashamed.

There are stupid people everywhere though. The September 11th attacks people are STILL saying was the government's doing/an inside job. So something like that does not surprise me :lol:

Does it get constant media coverage since September 11th? (If it does however... Then I know your pain)

Because our accident does. Every. Signle. Fucking. Day.

They came up with artificial fog, magnets dragging the plane down... Fun times. Some say that the tree which caused the crash was planted by Stalin himself, others believe that Putin pointed his finger at the aircraft and said "bang".

They're creative, let me tell you that :D

Guess it's a hard way to learn the lesson: Never let major political figures travel together.

It still does at times. ELEVEN (twelve this year) YEARS AFTER THE FACT. It gets annoying, but then again I don't watch the news anymore.
Artificial fog -Instruments in the plane work through that.
Magnets- There isn't one big enough on the planet that can yank a car moving at speed, let alone a plane.
The tree, oookaaay. The Putin one:

I'd make a joke about Rammstein playing "Dalai Llama" on that day, but it'd be in bad taste XD

Alucard would indeed have loled as well. Cheers.

It all makes sense now! :D

And I see another Paradox fan in these forums.

Edit: realised that the meme came before Paradox's mention. But, wt heck.

Well I was actually making the joke that the song "Dalai Llama" was originally titled "Flugangst” (“fear of flying”, literally “flight fright”). It's about being on a plane that is going through the stages of crashing but yours works too XD

This is cool and all, but...

Wouldn't this have been better suited for a fat PM to the devs? I mean, garnering support is cool and all, but it is not going to count for much if they give you guys the "NOPE" stamp. Granted, I'm not trying to be pessimistic or anything.

There was a suggestion to bug the devs on IRC, and this is exactly what we are going to do tomorrow.

As for the PM - I believe it's more convienient for both sides the way we've done it. Would you rather see 9 people post a message in a single thread, or read 9 (or more) separate private messages? ;)

I'm definitely behind more people reading KS and it would be fantastic if that included people from non-English speaking countries.
Good luck with the project, I'm looking forward to the finished product. :)
