Big oops with that. This has not been a graceful entrance for me. Sorry Kaiser!

Just use "F a P" if you must, then. Or spell it out a bit more "FandP".

It's probably not intentional in every case, but Shiver is correct that a lot of Stardock fans use "FaP" as an offensive dig - how often did people call them that before this controversy?

Got any proof for this baseless accusation out of fucking nowhere?

I know of only one guy who does it on purpose in the Founder community and he's quite a bit annoying in general to work with.
Hardly constitutes, "a lot".

WOW! is this not the most pedantic argument in Forum history?

Can we get this discussion B.O.T. or will that acronym offend a robot some place? SHEESH!

I think I know who you're referring to (not so sure there are no others though); maybe he's just loud enough that I overestimated how common it is. I apologize if I overgeneralized about Stardock fans and probably should have said "some" instead.

I took an untenable position, so we really don't need to pursue this further.

Sure, post on-topic if you want. Can't say I feel bad for derailing this thread.

He definitely can be a lot "louder" than the others.

By the way, are you the same Shiver that does the balance mod?
If you are, I've got some questions about the UQM code.

Yes. Send me a PM if you'd like, although I suspect you're a far better programmer than I am.

!

Ah well, why not. I'm not a programmer by trade. I've only done small amounts of game modding and one high school programming course. So the answer would be "C", because I tortured out how to change UQM. After UQM got online multiplayer working, there was a small competitive scene for super melee. The more people played, the more apparent imbalances with the SC2 ships became apparent under scrutiny. I had all sorts of ideas for what might get melee to be more fair, so one day I just went for it and started trying to edit the game. It was a painful process for a while, but eventually it shaped up.
