Where is my thread on retconning population figures?
« on: 21 June 2012, 07:20:29 »
It's gone.

Whats up?

Scientist:  "Eureka! We have invented 'Enhanced Imaging' which will markedly improve your piloting ability at the cost of your sanity."
Clan Wolf: "What is the point?"
Clan Diamond Shark: "What is the price?"
Clan Jade Falcon: "What is the catch?"

The thread in question is under review by the Moderators.

Interesting, you not allowed to suggest a background fix anymore?

I'm thinking Rule 4 (which was starting to kick in), Rule 13, and maybe the Fan Design guidelines.

Well Rule 13 is a way of saying 'we are relocating Catalyst to the CapCon'.  Have a nice day.

Rule 4?  10k mechs cannot hold a planet is political and based roughly on real world, but its a level of 'politics' which covers basic military/political/security realities.  If that somehow crossed the lines you might as well shut down the forums, as any and all canon factional politics has echoes of real life politics, somewhere.

The topic is not the reason. I cannot say more.

There's no shame in designing customs, so long as you keep them private and wash your hands afterwards.

There's IP issues involved, I believe

They'll have a discussion and figure it out and get back to us. The goal is to have fun without being too contentious. It's easy, however, when 'real life' examples get tossed around, for things to quickly degenerate.
