In the interests of good communication, I'm making this thread to say that I'm not gonna be around for the next week, maybe more. Hoping to jump right back into testing once I get back, but I'll at least make sure to keep up with the testing agenda; It tends to be very hard to resume testing if things pass one by.

But yeah, hope everyone has a productive etc week!

P.S. I figure this thread could stick around, just in case anyone else felt they also needed to herald their departure/re-arrival. Can be useful for keeping a community healthy. Wink

Well, I hope the reason for your trip is a pleasant one, and since you already did some testing, there's no problem.

I'll consider opening up a sticky thread for this same reason, but I wonder if that should actually be inside the Beta-testing discussion instead. I'll think about it.

Ugh, my laptop picked the worst time to stop working.  As much as I'd love to install the Forge beta on a school computer, I'm going to have to turn in my first beta a few days late, I think.

And I was super stoked to see the beta, too... Sad

I suppose you could say I'm back. While I still have browsed the Forge forums, I have felt too busy to do beta testing, so I didn't sign up for that. Not sure if it's too late for that now, but if you want me to help out with it, I'm available.

Sorry Alex, but it would be very unprofessional to inlcude you at this moment, although I'd really like to. There has been plenty of time, and I was 100% sure that you hadn't missed the topic. My guess was that you didn't want to taint your playing experience by seeing an intermediate, buggy version, but I understand now that this wasn't the reason you didn't sign in.
If I were to include you, I'd have to do the same with other people, but unless some of the current testers resign, I'm against that.

Your help offer is appreciated though and if I'd decide to open the subscriptions once again you'd be my first choice because you are, and I'm sure you always will be. a piece of Forge.

@natsfan: just do your best to keep the pace.

On a side note, I'm actually typing and browsing from a PC whose screen is messed up very badly. It all happened suddenly a few hours ago (more or less) and I truly hope the problem is just the cable and not the actual monitor. Whatever the matter, I'll take care of it tomorrow, or so I hope, but in the meantime I won't be able to work on the game much.
Thumbs down for technology.

Yeah, I understand, and it's okay. It would indeed be very unfair to let me in after the deadline has passed, and I respect your choice.

WB Alex. Cheesy

Also yeah, I'm back in internet range, more or less. However I'm still not home, and don't have access to a computer that even has a working mouse, so I'm still not back into testing.

Hi. I have an access to the internet again. Had to get away without saying goodbye in June and was far away from any civilization from that time until now. It doesn't look like an another testing stage is about to happen, but you can keep me in mind once more.

PS. Not much activity here since my departure. =/

Heya matey.

Welcome back. Yes, your absence is always heavily felt here since you're one of the few active members.

I had several Internet issues until the 21st of July and even if I only had a 5 days vacation in all the Summer, some family issues required my attention too.
But I've been working a lot on Forge from the darkness, adding something and dealing with the (expected) unexpected issues and I can guarantee interesting news before the end of Summer.

I hope you'll be available then, cause I might need your help again.

You mean "...till the end of autumn", "...till the end of September" or "...till the end of the next summer?"  Grin

BTW found out that my english is horrible. I read my old posts and hardly can understand a thing. Wonder how was you able to figure out at least anything from that barbarian blabbering.  xD

The end of the current Summer, granted.

One of my talents has always been reading difficult hand-writings and figuring out the meaning of cryptic phrases, and I guess this applies to foreign languages as well.

Anyway, trust me when I say your English is perfectly comprehensible. Almost none of the people I have worked with (me included) are native speakers, but I rarely had a tough time in understanding them.
The irony is I'm currently having a lot of trouble in exchanging English emails with a Russian guy and... I guess I'll send you a PM for this, since we're already deeply off-topic here.

Man, the current summer is not a current one already, it is five days long as we have September. Wink Is September considered summer in your homeland maybe?  Huh

Sure thing! Summer ends the 20th of September! It starts the 21st of June and lasts three months like all the seasons. Isn't it like that in your country?

Nope. We consider summer starting with the first day of June and ending with the last day of August. So it is already autumn in Russia and it rains as hell accordingly to the season nature.

Wow, this comes really unexpected! I'm not saying one system is better than the other, but since 21st of June is the Summer Solstice, I thought it was the common rule to mark the beginning of Summer with that one. Instead, I discovered there are lots of different rules for marking the beginning of the seasons.

It's funny to see how simple conventions gain so much strength in our minds that they attain the status of Truth. And it's nice to break free from this condition.

Well, I'll never refer to seasons any more when it comes to giving deadlines and announcements!
