Do The [dʒ]efs Have Icons?
 Flags or logos? Given that the Gaians distance themselves from the UEF, I have begun to ponder if they have developed their own forms of culture, given that they live in (relative) isolation within their habitats.

Has there been anything written on that particular regard? (besides the techroom descriptions, of course.)

they're incredibly fragmented so at the very least every cell will have its own system of identification and symbology
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

Re: Do The [dʒ]efs Have Icons?
This is a cool question that I don't think we've really explored, beyond the names of the known cells (Kostadin, Greenleaf, Greenfly, Bloody March). Lots of room for creativity.

The names of 3 already have the ring of allegory to them, so one would expect that they have some sort of symbol of the idenity expressed in their name... I'm actually quite suprised that you didn't (yet)

Not only that ... Considering they are a differnt (sub-)culture trying to differentiate themselfes from the "main-stream-culture" of Sol, so phenomena associated with (deliberately) distancing themselves from the UEF/Ubuntu-culture would come up (e.g. specific slang*)

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

Re: Do The [dʒ]efs Have Icons?
I think we should continue to debate on the pronunciation of the acronym at least until the campaign gets voiced. I have a hard time believing that the [gaɪ]an Efforts switches to [dʒ] when shortened. There are times to follow English rules and there are times to ignore them. I believe this is one of the times where language would evolve to ignore them.

I honestly just pronounce Gefs like Geths until proved otherwise.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.
