And you are SC fans. If I were you, I'd check out the PNF front page for some christmassy goodness by a talented artist.

EDIT: Durr, thanks Son!

EDIT: Changed the topic just a tad in case you're all just a bunch of cynical Christmas haters.

I am somewhat underwhelmed by your positive responses. Hopefully everyone is busy Christmas shopping or something and UQM hasn't turned into a place where Global Warming is the only thing people talk about.

Yes, we should definitely be encouraging her. Love her sense of humour, love her style, love to see more.

I have a complaint about that last card - ZEX has his head tilted down, when upon VUX encounters in space they state explicitly that they do not share this range of motion!

J/K , the cards are great! So far my favored is the one with the Yehat.

That's what I call knowing your SC lore!

The way it holds its hands is very cute.

Actually, I thought it looked a bit like Mr. Burns... "Excellent!"
That kind of puts a new spin on the picture, doesn't it? Cheesy

"On the third day of Christmas... "

Does this mean we are going to get at least 12 of these fantastic works of art?   Grin Merry Christmas indeed!

Hmm.. I'm not sure if I've misunderstood you or not, but Isuppose it's a bit silly to assume that all UQMF:ers know how the SCDB works. So here's a quick walkthrough of the relevant parts.

www.star-control.com is the address for PNF. The front page displays the five most recent news posts. Currently, four of those are Christmas cards. All you need to do is to scroll downwards to read the older ones. In the first Christmas card post, I've mentioned that we are indeed posting one card a day right up until Christmas Eve. Four have been posted, so there are eight to go.

When there are more than five Christmas cards posted, i.e the day after tomorrow, you will only be seeing the five most recent. If you want to see the other news posts and comments, you need to go to News and Updates, our News board. This functions just like the UQMF, so the topics are indexed by most recent post rather than in what order they were posted. Note that you need to be a SCDB member to comment.

If you don't care about my witty writing and just want to appreciate Zarla's art, then you can also go directly to our Christmas card gallery. It gets updated when I make a newspost and contains all cards posted so far.

No matter what way you view the Christmas cards, I'd ask that you take a minute out of your schedule to thank Zarla for bringing us some holiday cheer.

It's ZEX. I'm sure he's had himself surgically modified, there and elsewhere.

and Luki - a single day? Patience!

You know what, I think you just might be right about this one Smiley

Meep: Heh, didn't think of that. I guess it makes the Yehat a bit more sinister eh?

and Luki - a single day? Patience!

24 hours shoulf be plenty of time for a response on the busier SC forum. Sure I'm a bit impatient, but I'm mostly just excited...

Of course. I realized my excited folly soon after I posted and just didn't do anything about it. And I will definately make a point to thank Zarla. These are all supurb so far!
