PostSubject: Permissions Changes   Tue May 01, 2012 9:59 pm

I've recently made changes to our forum's permissions that I hope will cut down on some of the superfluous threads. Now, There are essentially two classes of user- Fans and Developers. Fans have under 20 posts, developers have over 20 posts. The importance of this split is that now, if i've checked all of the right boxes, only developers will be able to open threads in sections other than the "Other" section. This means that Fans have one less permission, and I think you'll all agree that this is a good idea- we've seen so many threads posted because a new member didn't read the FAQs, or the Wiki, or just couldn't find what they were looking for.
To our newest members, this is not a reflection on you or a punishment, it's a change that's long overdue and will rally help reduce clutter in the forums. Once you become a developer, you can post threads, but remember to ask questions before you post one on this thread.

It's not because of you, it just helps cut down on some of the stuff that gets repeated a lot.

Finally! I'm not sure how much control you have over this website, but if you could make the error message for trying to do this provide a link to the wiki/dictionary/etc.?

Long story short, there is no substitute for water.

you still blame the problem of fire, i got an idea for acuatic civilizations but it is a longer much longer time to develop, i'll post the link of it later

http://thrivegame.canadaboard.net/t543p30-implementing-underwater-civilizations

in the last posts.... underwater civilizations developed by selective breeding of domesticated creatures, would take more time to just learning to do fire, but its the only solution i have to their issues.

Yeah. Somehow I don't find that as horrible as lack of basic high school chemistry, though. That's one of those "seen it in sci-fi or other games, conditioned to not think about whether or not it's plausible" things.

You really don't want to know about the water wars. But if you really do, the substance of the argument is here. Immediately before posting it I had to deal with people who thought that life could evolve in such things as "acid," liquid methane, and liquid nitrogen. Anyone wishing to discuss chemistry must first read that thread.

And then there was the chemistry editor way, way, way back. I killed that ASAP, along with people wanting to make "extra elements".

You... Killed them? That's drastic...

Of course, everyone knows my new element 'Awesome-ium' can turn dead people into futuristic underwater civilisations, so no problem there.
