  • Oh, uh, I guess I'm not a robot.
    How can you be sure?



    Geo: incidentally, the message you were getting was from an IP ban I did last month - we sometimes get these guests that seem to be going through the forum hitting every button they can, apparently looking for a way to hack in generating about 200,000,000 error messages.  Who needs the burden on the server, even if there's no way in?  As quoted above, it wasn't a similar IP number at all.

  • Things look clear again, so no worries.
    It's definitely possible you see different IP's from me, but except for the last three weeks (I've been all over Scandinavia) the IP should come out of Belgium. At some times, my internet provider changes my IP, and at times I post either from my tablet, or from my desktop. The latter can be either with a direct connection, or through my hub.
    There's of course the possibility I happened to use a cached page on my tablet which linked to this earlier ban. As I mentioned, clearing my tablet's cache seems to have solved the issue at my end,
    Happy to be back by the way. :D

    Darn straight. I've bought SMAC at least three times in my life and I haven't regretted any of them.

  • And don't be afraid to take the plunge elsewhere in the forum. Sure were crazy, but then again that makes two of us.

  • Greetings, everyone!
     
    BUncle and I had a conversation recently on CFC, and discovered mutual interests. He invited me here, so here I am.  :)
     
    I'm an absolute novice at SMAC. I've had the game for a long time, tried it, got intimidated, and ran screaming back to Test of Time. I want to learn it, though, so am looking forward to getting lots of good advice here.
     
    My other interests include Star Trek, Doctor Who, Dune, and reading science fiction and historical fiction. I collect books, penguins, cat-themed art cards, and Scrabble tile jewelry, among other things. I'm also into lolcats (have 2 real cats), and have been working on a lol version of Dune (based on the Lynch movie).
     
    I've no idea how many women might be on this forum, but I am female and request that nobody address me as "dude" or refer to me as "he" or "him," please.  :)

  • Welcome to AC2, fellow comrade!

    And also, thank you for clarifying your gender and such, I always feel like a moron for not addressing people properly.
    Don't be afraid to visit the other sectors of the forum, and on a personal note, don't be afraid to dabble in the custom factions that we have to offer!

    It might make getting back into SMAC a lot more interesting and exciting for you. Who knows.

  • Thank you for your kind welcome.  :)
     
    I'm not sure what you mean by custom factions, but I'll learn. Aside from trying the game and running away, pretty much all I know about SMAC is from the trilogy of novels, which were quite enjoyable (if a bit creepy in places).

  • Check the Modding threads, you'll find a few custom factions people have made lying about. Also be sure to check the Planet Tales if you like the story of SMAC/SMACX, some really interesting stuff people wrote. I also have an ongoing AAR/gameplay driven story going on there.

  • And of course, all the SF interests you mention are up for discussion in the Recreation Commons - you'll love Mylocka's (another lady) Star Trek art.  We need more girl power in this place; Jarlwolf doesn't wash his socks often enough and Green1 just lets one off and grins sometimes - it's starting to smell like a locker room.  Maybe they'll behave better around ladies.

  • Since when was I ever cool?


    Valka, Geo suggests we create a lady's membergroup to cut down on that pronoun problem you mentioned in your first post.  Mylochka is interested, but trying to think of a better joke to have display directly under her handle than my "Female Woman" idea.  Thoughts?

    Girl Power?  Cool Geek Chick?  Gamer Goddess?  It doesn't have to be a joke.  Y'all's call...

  • Just a usergroup - if there was a reason to have a "Groovy all-girl world now!" private folder, that would allow me to make it visible to only the wimmin members, but my purpose here is only to replace the postcount-based rank that displays under your handle, ("Drone" until you make another post) with something Ladylike...
