  1. Just checking to see what rank I have! I'm amazed there are still familiar faces here after so man years. :)
  2. I've been a member of this forum for a long, long time. I used to have member number 200 or so, after Jeff switched over from an older version of the forums, and I started the famous Nephilim vs. Slith topic (for those who remember; albeit under a different user name). I've never been much of active member, but I have dropped in from time to time through the last 15+ years. Any way, point is, I've seen this place be founded, grow and then, it seems, die a bit. My question to the members is—what happened here; why has the frequency of posts gone down so much? General used to be a hub of activity. And now, it seems, a handful of posts a month is a hard maximum. When did people stop using the forums to hang-out and chat, and why hasn't a new generation taken up where the last one left off? (Looking forward to Queen's Wish) 🥳
  3. I wonder how many years more Jeff wants to do this?
  4. This place has changed so much in the last century :) It's so inactive compared to the early days.
  5. My issue with all the custom quests being made by people is that the game may suffer a bit. I mean unless he directs the backers well, I don't see these random quests as being a huge bonus to game play. Also, who has $1,000 to put into this?—wow! He may end up with a serious amount of cash. I guess with that comes more and more pressure to make a great game.
  6. I prefer to put the stress on the last vowel—AvernUm. His way of saying it sounds quite amusing. But anyway, I guess I've been saying it wrong too.
  7. I'm very curious to see how his Kickstarter campaign will work out—if it happens at all. I wonder what he is planning to do with an enlarged budget.
  8. aw coolio, who doesn't want to have that neck and those gorgeous eyes. my god, it's like a torrent of pleasure looking at your birdie grandness, bro
  9. Yea, everything is much softer on the eyes. On a side note—no more member numbers. How will we live without it, ahhh...
  10. Nice to Hear. I've been here since the old old boards (whatever they were called). it's cool to see that old-timers are still kicking it. My god, I just looked at the date I joined-- 2001—16 years ago. Time marches on.
  11. Probably just buy an old computer))
  12. What does that mean? "Avernum remakes were somewhat better received by people who preferred Exile to Avernum" I'm missing the logic here. Why would somebody like something that the don't prefer?
  13. And what if I eat them all? Jeff seems to have overlooked that they can be used to heal characters.
  14. Where exactly am I supposed to collect this fruit to make pickles? Thanks a lot)
  15. I'm thinking of getting back into playing, starting with Avadon 3. Maybe I'm feeling homesick (been in Russia too long now). But, yea, Jeff's games are pretty cool.
  16. Hey ADoS, you have some really cool stuff on your web-site. I don't know why I decided to click on that link, but it was worth it—good stories etc.

    Completionist?

    I do everything on the first play-through. I never replay a game.

    Travel

    I will be teaching English in Russia, starting in September—maybe that counts as travel. I also traveled from Saint Petersburg, through Moscow, and on to Kazan during August of this year.
  20. I fully second this. If you haven't played it, you should... for sure.
  21. This is also wrong. It's very common in Ecology journals. The only place it's rare is in the methods section, because sometimes saying "we did" I did" draws attention to the subject when the subject isn't important. But maybe nobody cares about ecology
  22. This is wrong. At least for Ecology papers this is wrong. The editor that edited my paper insisted on short, to the point sentences. And some journals even suggest that you should write in the active voice; and every guide on how to write in Biology says that simple writing is good writting. Some people don't follow the rules, no, but from I've seen, it's a goal in Biology/ecology to write concise and clear papers. Also, ecologists are expected to write well, that's a huge goal for anyone that wants a long term job in the field.
  23. " You have free will only to the extent that the future is predetermined. " What does that mean? Can you reword this?
