Sorry about not being clear, Spazzy. Props to you too for making it. CBG and jinx were the ones who schooled me on the history of Normandy. One of whom had a much more patient teaching style... but I won't mention who.

I think it is best to just keep it simple by returning to the concept of a separate flag-capping and carrying score from the normal score. We are after all just talking about a couple of numbers next to your name. People trying to rack up points by exploiting the idea will just be seen as lame, and ...

That stuff is good stuff. It is what you get when you turn on debugging with the "-dd" in the config. I don't see an error, I suppose it may be time to look at router configuration issues. Google for "port forwarding" and look up the manual for your router model to configure it to allow udp traffic ...

I think it would be enough just to show the flag cap stats along-side the score. When only one person is doing the capturing his or her score usually goes down the tubes because everyone is aiming at that person. If I had a score of -40, I would be happy enough saying, "Yeah, but look, I have 4 caps...

Personally, I think your iPod picture would make a great signature except without the animated text. It is a clever enough idea that you don't have to knock people over the head with it.

In our overhyped world, it is the understated that stands out.

I like the idea of a Risk-like, territory-conquering map. It would take teamwork and strategy, two things I'd like to see more of in BZLand. How does this scenario sound?: Red versus Green. Eight blue island bases surrounding a central island. Flags can only be captured if you have at least 1 other ...

I rate myself 7.85 in dodging slow bullets, a 9.35 in accuracy when my target is right in front of me, a 9.54 in winning when my teamates are real good, and a 9.789 in the category of humility.

Oh yeah, also my sarcasm rating is currently on the rise.

That makes a lot of sense. The event is all one occurrence and the message reflect it that way. I find it annoying to sort through pages of useless information in the chat window.
