I think adding more layers of metaphors, like a cake, or an onion, is the best way to upset the applecart, as it were, and at some point the whole house of cards will go tumbling to the ground, like the walls of that ancient city.

Hey now, fiber is good for the digestion. All those content-rich posts can really block up the tubes.

Actually, it's less like a boat and more like Southwest Airlines.
I've flown on one of those planes twice, and they're only rough during landing. It's like your rapidly bobbing up and down. So UBB is a plane full of passengers, but it's reluctant to land and change course? These analogies are confusing.

Law Bringer makes me think of Dr. Zaius.
I know, it's "Law Giver", but still...

Well, I for one, love my new title. Now all I have to do is post very, very slowly so that I have it until the next changeover. Shouldn't be too hard.

Edit: Aw, craters! It was just fine the first and second time. Quit messin' with it. I wonder if I can put on 180 posts before the next change...

*sighs*

Hey, I think 'Infiltrator' is the best title. Even better would be 'Interloper', but this is as close as they get for now.

I think it isn't exactly a changing of the guard, that now Geneforge takes over from Avernum. A5 is proof that Avernum is anything but dead. But Geneforge is the other half of Spiderweb now, so it's only fair that it gets a turn.

'Law Bringer' does seem a bit lame, though, somehow. I'd endorse replacing it with 'Thorn Flinger'.

Listen carefully because some of your options may have changed.

How about "600 lb. Drakon" instead?

—Alorael, who isn't sure that's a reasonable Drakon weight. Maybe Gazers instead.

I'm fine with Infiltrator (for now anyway), but I too rather wish the powers that be would make up their mind about something. :rolleyes:

Yes, UBB sucks that way. Salmon's post was more of a tip for the future.

Yes, the time to upgrade was years ago. The problem is finding someone with the time, energy and resources to do it. Also, it might be a question of money.

Well, I was frustrated because I'd gotten public warning posts about multi-posting. The UBB wouldn't allow me to delete any errors I made, then corrected. Made peace with all concerned.

Then there was a flurry of posts reflecting UBB's problems and no cure.

I saw something interesting when I logged in today. At the top of the page it said:

"If You Get Errors When Trying To Make a New Account - We have been having some trouble with the board software. E-Mail Us and let us know if you are having problems, and we will fix it. We plan to upgrade the board software this year."

I have no idea if my "rant" had a part in this. However. If it did then it was worth the loss of 1 star of karma.

P.S. If you go below 5 stars once is 4 as high as it will ever be again?

Regarding karma: best we don't talk about it. Trust me; it's really not important at all.
