*coughs* Perhaps EA and their impact on the industry would be better suited to its own thread so that this one can focus on the possible implications of Microsoft's purchase of Mojang? :P

What is this great glitch I hear of? Long story short, assuming I recall the details correctly, the update cocked up for some reason in late October 2003, which left a number of regions (most notably the Pacific) without a delegate. Anti-Francos folks tried to pounce on the opportunity, but the mod...

I'm amazed by a puppeteer doing a few thousand nations. :blink: I mean all that effort to hate the site... It wasn't even that; all he did was create shittons of nations, use them to take over regions, and classically grief them (boot everybody, changed the WFE to link to some national socialist si...

And of course, the "great glitch," and that whole thing. Ugh, don't remind me. That pain in everyone's ass has irreversibly been linked in my head with close to a full week of sleep deprivation due to a wildfire in my area around the same time. Between the fire related stress and lack of ...

They were pretty much the reason moderators were created, as they were very much 4chan over the top in griefing other players and regions. Ah, minor correction on this point; the immediate incident that led to the creation of the mod team was a very intense and large-scale shock image spam attack p...

Basically, watch Max's Twitter or FB pages- he usually announces any public appearances via those, and that's your best bet for a signing. Alternatively, wait for his next book to come out and hope his publisher sends him on a promo tour. (Usually applies mostly to those of us in the US and/or Europ...

Man, I'd love to, but it sounds ancap-bashing, and as much as I'm not an anarchist and not particularly fond of ancaps, I just find it a little intellectually dishonest, even with the satire layered on top. I've read the short free part, and I catch up on Max's blog from time to time, and I really ...

Well as natural as far as no remembered mind-altering substances being imbibed goes. I remember once taking too many cold medications at the same time. That was pretty trippy. Oooh, been there. "I FEEEEEEL HAAAAAAAAPPY!" I'm amazed my friends at anime club didn't murder me that night. XD

Yes. Just look for nationstates 2. NationStates 2 Hi there. On July 1st, 2009, Jolt closed NationStates 2 and began redirecting all visitors to a different Jolt game. Earlier, Jolt announced they were taking NS2 down only to retool it, and would bring it back at some indefinite time in the future. ...
