  1. Moved to General Discussion, as this is about the game. I didn't know that @SQUAD named a Kerbal after me.
  2. Disclaimer: Some questions may not be answerable, for various reasons. The word of the thread is: Automagically. THIS IS NOT A CHAT THREAD. Mods- How often are you called upon to examine the post of a Curious George, only to have it be a spambot? Can you show us an example of what their messages look like? Are the majority of the users on the forum humans? About how many unique users are active on the forum per month? What do you do with a spambot? About how many people join the forums per day? Everyone else- Have you ever wondered about this, or is it just me?
  3. Not only is it a good idea, it's also required by the forum rules. My avatar is of a Flat-Coated Retriever, the same breed as my dog was. There's a picture of my dog in my signature. BTW, he liked to chase cats, so be careful.
  4. Now that Badie has given me permission, here's the PM I was sent:
  5. We've notified @Badie and @UomoCapra about this, so they can give an official word. Until then, it's best to hold off so you don't get in trouble if they decide against it.
  6. I hide in the tallest place in the house, a book.
  7. My brother took a few shots of the eclipse with his camera and some glasses I bought. I'll see if I can upload them later.
  8. As of 8/12/17, the KSP forums use HTTPS protocol instead of HTTP. This will increase your security when you log on to the forums. We don't expect there to be any issues, but if there are, please PM @ManeTI to let him know.
  9. These forums are about as addicting as KSP itself. Welcome aboard!
  10. Hey, at least we're on HTTPS now.
  11. Some posts have been merged from a separate thread with the same name.
  12. Yes, it is. It's to prevent reputation from too much inflation.
  13. No, we're not randomly chosen. When the mod team decides we need new members, we get together and list candidates, and discuss each one. The users we think are the best choices are invited to become a moderator. We do look for users with clean infraction histories. While an infraction is not an automatic disqualification, most of the moderators had less than 2. Yes. Mine said something almost exactly like that, but I can't share it because @Badie's not online to give me permission. (The rules apply to us, too. In this case, it's 2.2f.) Really, though, it's not a half-bad guess. No! We're an all-volunteer team, with the exception of @Badie, the Community Lead. We don't receive any monetary compensation whatsoever from Squad or Take Two, although there have been the odd gifts of KSP merchandise as a way to say thank you. We don't do this for money, we do it because we love the community and want to contribute to it. We did have to sign non-disclosure agreements before we received moderator permissions. Among other things, the NDAs protect your privacy, by preventing us from sharing personal information, such as email addresses, birthdays, and real names.
  14. Locked at OP request.
  15. Why would we? It's already locked.
  16. I'm gonna ping @Badie for you, because I don't know.
  17. Huh? @Deddly, I guess Sampa hasn't posted.
  18. Welcome aboard, @LordHumungus!
  19. Talk to your science teacher. It's a once-in a lifetime thing, it would be near-criminal not to let you see it. Frame it as a teachable moment, a way to tie the curriculum into real life.
  20. I'm glad you asked! The person who writes the TOTM's is @Tex. If he's not around, though, or doesn't reply, PM @Vanamonde as his punishment for ninja'ing me.
  21. Nice stuff!
  22. Guys, let's cool down a bit here, please.
  23. Unfortunately, this thread is a chat thread, which are prohibited on this forum. Thread locked.
  24. As a moderator, I can confirm that I do not have folding wings. I've heard that @Deddly does, though. IR is the mod you'd want to use, I think, though I've never tried it.
