Re: PAWiki needs a staff editor

Cool. You can make your application by rolling back the 200 or so spam edits currently in the recent edits log (http://www.clawofdarkness.com/pawiki/index.php?title=Special:Recentchanges&limit=500)....

PAWiki needs a staff editor

I haven't been in a position to put much in the way of worthwhile contributions on PAWiki (http://www.clawofdarkness.com/pawiki/) for a while now, but now I'm no longer inclined to spend my time...

Re: 1up's not-ingame members

Ah, right, missed that. Nice combo. Wouldn't even need to use it every tick. Unfortunately there's a limit to the amount of resources you can have stored.

Odd, that's exactly what it looks like to me.

Re: 1up's not-ingame members

That won't work. They'd need to have a higher average score than the 'winner' planet, but that's (eventually) impossible. Also, it's impossible to donate a planet to #1, since you can't donate a...

Re: 1up's not-ingame members

Just for the record, Ascendancy has a few planets that do nothing but donate to the alliance fund. 1up is hardly unique in having a few planets around to make the alliance fund useful.

Re: 1up's not-ingame members

That problem is exactly the same currently. They could even leave 73 ticks before the end and and add their score to alliance Z.

Re: I want a Second Planet

This doesn't actually address the topic at all. The question isn't actually "Should people be able to have multiple planets?" It is: "Should people be able to have multiple accounts?"

There's a bit of both. Cheating is what is defined as cheating, so by your definition whatever is defined as cheating is unfair. I agree. I just didn't agree that we should let tradition dictate the...

Isn't that how they justify all the alliance limit stuff though? Support planets is surely to 'prevent unfair advantages'.
