An amazing discovery in relation to board speed



  • I've discovered (much to my shcok and terror) that I have been posting at about three in the morning. After hours of painstaking tests, I've concluded that this might have some affect on the response time of others, due to the fact that they may be asleep!

    Thanks :p

  • Hehe :)

    where are you from? I'm from Norway and I'm having the same problem sometimes...

    Some people say war doesn't solve anything... perhaps they're using the wrong strategy...



  • I'm an Aussie, it's really anoying having to wait for everyone to reply. :)
    I 'spose I'll get used to it, but hay, that's life.

  • Actually, I'd say over half the members of the Cytheran board are from places outside the US. Personally, it is annoying to me when I come back and people have responded to each other ten times. It's hard to catch up and I miss all oppertunity to post something that I thought relevant in the meantime. At most I post twice on a specific topic in one day, and even then they are (almost) always a few hours apart

    Well, if you can prod cache a bit, not only will you have a very short wait for your replies, but also you can read what some others are calling a very interesting TS, that has fallen off the topic list.

    thinks New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Norway, and two from Canada...so as long as we've no more than 6 Americans, you'd be right, Theo. (I really hope I didn't miss anyone. >_< )

  • I count six americans. I'm probably missing a few though.

    Slayer, Theo, Odysseus, ferazel, Talos, and me.

  • Other Americans: DF, me

    If it's tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

    Oh. W ell, I guess I did t h ink you h a d lef t completely, but th a t explains your recent posts on this bo ard. I s u ppose i t might have been hard to tell without most of the stories on hold.

    I hope that cleared up any mis k onceptions peop l e might have had. But we'll see, won't we ?

  • Avatara: What about kl?

    I noticed it :)... LOL, I thought it was my mind tricking me, as I've been sitting by my computer for several long hours... "uuh, is that a bold or is it just me?"

    Kl is not a 'creative endeviour set in the Cytherian world'. I will be making world 5 as planned, and I will probobly perticipate starting in part 3.

  • Oh, so close...I had almost missed it in my rush, but the misspelling of misconceptions was a give away ;) And the details! A comma and a new paragraph to separate the words (although a period would have been better than a comma). Not bad (for a beginner) ;)

    Kestrel, do you count as one or two? ;) If two, Ronin counts as...yeah...

  • I used a comma as s ome of us like f o rming wh at we call "complex sentences." You know, something more than short st a tements. That gets annoying fas t. It also seems pointless. Don't you agree ?

    "I hate that! Your answers are always s h o rt, precise, and utterly useless!"
    "Yes."

  • A ctually...think what would happen if sho r t sent e nces didn't exist... w e'd b e usi n g run-on s e ntences a lot mo r e.

    Wel l , we stra y ed off topic, d idn't we? From our l o catio n s to sentenc e structure...Then again, I guess it's better than one-track minds, eh ? :rolleyes:

  • Well, the topic was started by an Australian. History does repeat itself. :p

  • W ell, Avatara, suc h things do m a t t er. I mean, i t's the same thing with s pelling. Sure, it may be possi l e to understand y ou, but do n't you hate readi n g misspelled words ?

    I figure, if your going to take the time to do someth i ng like this, atleast do your best... w ell, unless your k i nda short o n time ;)
