Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
Attention developers: I would like to be hired as part of the Diaspora dev team. I'd like to apply for the position of "bull**** release date announcer," so you guys don't have to be pestered by people anymore. My job would consist of randomly assigning a date for the release of various sections of the game, no matter how far along the development actually is. This way, people say "OH **** IT'S COMING OUT JULY 23RD!" But when that's come and gone and the game's not out yet, I'll give some fake-ass excuse and say "Sorry guys, it's coming out September 15th," continually keeping the heat off of you.

 :lol:

I'm sure the team appreciate your offer, but i doubt that this postion is really needed.
I think adding a script that automatically replies to posts in the Diaspora board that contains the words "update" "release date" and "when do you gonna release" and similar, would be much better and easier.
The team doesn't even have to bother writing the script themself, this could be done by volunteers from the community or other Admins with a bit spare time... :P

Edit: I think other projects could use this too, judging from all the "when do you gonna release?" threads... :D


I'm off before someone adds a script, the prevents me from posting in this part of the HLP board... :nervous:

Just use http://qgl.org/blamegen/ for when you miss a release date.
Or something.

Everything seems to be Valve's fault.

That, or today is an excellent day to go out and buy a lottery ticket.

I have not understand... Why a lottery ticket?

 
Re: 09-03-15 - An Estimate
It's a saying, used when something exceptionally lucky or unlikely happens to someone. Since they're having that sort of day, that luck might continue, so they should buy a lottery ticket. In this case, I was joking that if the Blame Generator actually did randomly calculate different answers, but every one of them just happened to be "blame Valve" when YIIMM tried it, that'd be a spectacular stroke of luck.

I choose to blame IronForge instead:

ANYWAY I have no idea why we're discussing upload/download when the finished product could be months away. My guess is at least a month.

Cut me off ya lil' douchewibbler... Seeing as I actually had a reasonable question  :hopping: !

The team has informed me that it is going to be released on the 16th of July and that it is 99% complete. All they need to do is fix a few minor bugs and beta test. :wtf:

That was your dog and you shouldn't believe it when it tells you to kill.

Or that your dad is called Sam.

Oh you spoke too soon. It's been pushed back to when the sun becomes a red giant and engulfs the planet.

I'm sure by then we will have moved development into space, so you've got nothing to worry about. :)
