Hahaha! @dhn

Hey Spambot, I think you are right, other releases of Olympus should be major features on the Martian turrain, or large mountains/volcanos on earth.

But I think other major releases, such as phpBB4, 5 and 6, should be Saturn and Jupiter, since they should only go bigger! ;)

I'm not sure how many mountains we are aware of on the Gas Giants.

Though, we could do storms. Unfortunatly phpBB 4.0 Great Red Spot doesn't quite work...

Apparently phpBB 3.0 Karl did not sound as hot as expected. But I was pretty sure that my NATO code names for Soviet block aircraft (phpBB 3.0 Flanker) or Jazz subgenres (phpBB 3.0 Hard bop) ideas were going to make it until subBlue came along with his stupid Martian mountains. :(



There were quite a few ones that were not considered. :(

Such as capital cities in the countries/states the current team members ("We have stopped work on 2.2, and now we are coding London!" just has a funny ring about it) and uh, Chronicles of Narnia references? We were smoking something rather good when we considerd for 0.002 seconds 'pokémon'...

However, if we had of kept dhn's idea of Peter Sellers' characters, this could be phpBB Strangelove... somewhat apt ;)

:lol: That was good.

Saturn's rings are majestic and all, but phpBB 4.0 Cassini Division doesn't have a lot of flair either, does it.
