Didn't see a board for introductions (or a rules post saying no introductions allowed), so I'm just going to tell you a little bit about myself. I am driven here as I recently started developing a game idea that I had, its only on the drawing board and I've only written a little code, however I plan to take it all the way. I love this forum also, I am a big fan of SMF, and was pleased to see when I clicked this link and saw it wasn't vBulliten, or some other software, so anyways, whats up?

Also, thanks for making me feel retarded on the verification page -_-.

Hey Tyb97 and welcome to JGO!

You're completely fine with posting an introduction thread in here.

Oh and SMF may 'look' pretty but according to our awesome cute fluffy overlord, Riven, it sucks ass.

And feeling retarded is a good thing....you can only get better Grin

I don't think there's a single forum that even looks pretty.  To me, they're full of annoying clutter and UI noise.  WordPress, although it too is based on some really brain dead code, is more the aesthetic I go for.

To me, [forums] are full of annoying clutter and UI noise.
And if you remove anything of this visual clutter, sproingie will go after you, claiming the 'article' stylesheet is bad Pointing

I've ran forums with vBulliten, SMF, and myPHBB or w/e its called, I prefer SMF over all.

About the beginning quiz, I threw it into eclipse, and almost cried when I saw the answer...

Well, that's just dandy. If someone wants to join the community it isn't harder than they'll make it eventually.

My fancy quiz allows exactly those who I think can contribute to the community. It's supposed to be humorous as well, although YMMV. I'd hate to be the (sole) cause of screams of agony for our fledging members of this beloved community, but I'm not gonna change anything. Smiley

Hehehehehe...

I solved that quiz on iOS!

I had to open the verification page in safari and an online java 'simulator' (can't think of the right word) in Chrome for iOS.
Then safari crashed, but I worked it out

I'd like to know how the second question 'always works'

I bruteforced all possible solutions (that took about 20 minutes on my quadcore). Then I generated a PHP file with all the answers in an array, and I pick one solution to fill the blanks in the code snippet.

The wording in the question is a bit tricky, giving you the illusion that you should be able to figure this out. This is done so spammers don't run off to the first online java compiler/executor. I expected, however, that any Java programmer would immediately realize that they wouldn't stand a chance at solving this in their heads...

In the last 30 days, we had 5355 registrations and 95 activations. Maybe it's too easy!

wow, I feel really old, not knowing about all this quiz business....
It's been there for 18 months, damn, I'm getting old too.

It didn't look too different, I tried to make the current theme like the old one. The only significant UI change is the header.
