Phew, that'll be a lot of work, but I will try. No guarantee for it being ready at release though..

Re: Durokan's Custom Map Workshop

Hey Durokan, I have a question regarding the use of these neat maps you're doing. Can I use them in my mod? I'd take care of crediting you and the person with the idea. I'd most likely do heavy terrain and native modifications anyway (which would consequently also result in a renaming of the map).

Re: Bernie Sanders next president of USA

No matter how big his lack of power truly might be, someone with the constructive mindset, ambitions and motivation of Sanders would always be a preferable choice over anyone of these republican killers who all wanna see more bloodshed and all of the other things that'd make the USA a worse place.

Re: ESOC new UI?

Re: Bernie Sanders next president of USA

The only difference of Trump to other rather right-wing politicians in the US and also Europe is that he's a popular media figure. Berlusconi is comparable in that regard, but not politically. Populist parties are on the rise in Europe as well. They are not as clear about their political ideas and p...

Re: Bernie Sanders next president of USA

No, I'm just consequently analyzing the candidates from my political standpoint. You can analyze American politics from many perspectives such as the internal American perspective, the European/German one (which is the easiest one for me) and a global one. With all the perspectives in mind I conclud...

Re: Bernie Sanders next president of USA

Bernie Sanders is the only eligible candidate. All the republican candidates are ultraconservative, misanthrophic, xenophobic, islamophobic backward warmongers, who abuse religion as a stepping stone and are puppets - because financially backed - from the big banks and the military complex. Just lik...

Re: Free XP

Well, the things the ESOC FP does are in their nature typical patch changes. The anti-cheat and installation features are ace, but would probably not get adopted by MS in that way.

Re: Sound Bug Fix

Really, just having seen the type and low amount of files, it doesn't look like an effective bug fix to me. I know what these files are used for and I see little sense in them being able to fix the issue.

*Sigh* We've had a couple of internal discussions about moderation stye long before.

I did as well. It provided a nice mix of recent general and personal topics of interest. The advantage on the old site was the immediate display of these topics while now it's less obvious.
