I finally got the joke with the new name of our game. It's funny!  :danc:

I thought the first name was a good luck charm.  It had everything.  Oh, the folly of youth.

Hermit, congratulations on your tech advance!  :danc:

This reminds me, as you asked one day, about etiquette rules for ongoing games. I forgot to mention two of them:

1) Secret Projects are expensive, and most of the time in MP environment they are instabuilt in one turn. To avoid a situation in which two players try to get the same Project in the same turn (where the first one gets it and the second one wastes hundreds of minerals), it is customary to announce that you're one turn from completing the Project. "The HGP is poised for completion" suffices for everyone to avoid dashing for it.

2) When you get all commlinks, you may want to secure votes for yourself and convene the Council. You can conduct diplomacy as much as you want before the Council, but once you start the election race, it's nice to post relevant information about the vote (usually I even post a screenshot with the names and number of votes) and allow for a slower turn and for the other contestant to conduct his own diplomacy and negotiate his own prices for votes. Otherwise, he might get a bit screwed by the voting process and we would'nt like that, would we.

1)  Absolutely not.  This game is already bizarro kind with announcing that a Secret Project has been started, to everyone.  Why do I want my rivals to allocate minerals effectively?  ?? ?

2)  In light of the glitch, how is this done?  How do I get a communique from the actual player, and not an A.I. who will take control of a Human faction during a council vote dialogue?

And here we tinker with metal, to try to give it a kind of life, and suffer those who would scoff at our efforts. But who's to say that, if intelligence had evolved in some other form in past millennia, the ancestors of these beings would not now scoff at the idea of intelligence residing within meat?
