This seems to be an illustrative example of a futile rules discussion between players of a game.
"Surpricingly" they are not able to agree who is to benefit of the game stumbling into a situation not covered by the written rules, and thus the games probably nonintended handling of that situation.
Even if they try to augment their argumentaion by including nonrelevant mathematical theory or some poor hardworking employes dropping of words they wont convince anybody.

To you guys playing in this game: Thanx for contributing to the improvement of this game by uncovering this jinx.
Now be a bit manly about this and simply take a vote between you, how to get on with the game. Either it happened they way it did, or it must be changed before you go on. Remember to accept the majority, right. The other players also have a right to enjoy your game.

The rest of us reading this forum don't really need to witness this dragging on, do we ?

Apologize for dropping in ...

( And please don't start hazzle me now. I probably won't read it anyway )


Actually; no vote needed. MARSHALL has said that this is an error/bug/unintended whatever & it
is being fixed in 1.05.


I claim that Marshall is the final say on the way the game works.

That's funny because that's exactly what Marshall did NOT say in his first post. He only then started backtracking afterwards, but whatever.

Huh?
I mentioned that this was an "issue" in my first post, Neverman and I never intended to backtrack on anything here so if that perception is there then I certainly apologize because it was my fault, issue, bug, oversite, screwup, miscalculation or whatever you choose to call it LOL!

I quoted you on what you said and it was:


"This is definitely an issue with how I handle loaned corps."

You do not say this is a bug INSTEAD you say this IS the way it is being handled, implying that it is being handled that way on purpose. It's an easy implication to get.

If you want to change your mind or the game (I think you should) then that's ok, but please don't backtrack, it's just not a good thing.

Nope, sorry sir. I said it was an "ISSUE" with the way it was being handled??? As in I am not doing it the right way or it could be done better??? I am not backtracking nor did I want to imply such a thing??? I'm not sure why this really matters???

For future reference:

ISSUE = BUG
I DID IT WRONG = BUG

BUG, BUG, BUG, BUG, BUG, BUG, BUG, BUG!

Now is that better? LOL!

Well, if you did it wrong = bug then there are still a MILLION bugs in this game.

Marshall, can we get a "I did it the wrong way" topic in Mantis so I can start reporting bugs under this title? That would be great, thanks.

I think almost everything in Mantis could be generically classified as me doing it the wrong way, no?
A MILLION? Wow! That's just a bit over what I thought! :-)

I love you Neverman (Not that way)! LOL!

A "million" of anything is an awfully large number. I've been coding every day (more or less) for 43 years. I would have had to write 63+ bugs every day of that time in order to hit a million.

If I told you once, I told you a billion times, don't exaggerate!

LOL, I'm sorry you guys took it so literally, or not. :)

Anyways, I'm pretty sure my point was made so let's move on with the game.

Actually, anything that can add a little levity HAS to be a good thing.

It appears as though this game is coming to an end.
