The second something goes wrong, all faith goes out the window. I confess myself disappointed at the general attitude :|


I haven't seen so much of this faith going out the window. As far as I can tell, it's only afew very vocal ones that are portraying this attitude. Most others seem to feel some pity with a "it happens" attitude. And then there are the few like me that just go round spreading obviously wrong theories about RC1, etc (they have to be obviously wrong, since we don't want to actually mislead (too many) people).

In terms of our young isoliert here, frankly, he is starting to look more like a troll than the uninformed kid he previously did.

Indeed, the bertie bears are expensive to make, Jon did them because he thought it would be fun for the community (plus we needed a mascot :mrgreen: )

Be nice, they are all having cold-turkey!
Rehab would be better.

btw, going down conspiracy-lane would be a entertaining finale for this topic. I'd say, the government closed it down because they allegedly found weapons of mass destruction in the Olympus souce code..

I say we make a Berta for 3.x, complete with the likely semi-updated logo :D That way, Bertie can have company! :mrgreen:

It seems to me it's more or less the nay-sayers are the more vocal of the two groups. Despite what you do to help anyway, there are always those who just never have been given enough to satisfy.

I am getting so tired of crybabies. Second something goes wrong its "Not-Professional." Do these people that are saying this *beep* have any idea? Recently Atari released a digital download of TDU that was botched. People PAYED $40 for a program that they couldn't use. All they could do was *beep* even when Atari sent them a DVD copy of it and refunded their money. IMO they went above and beyond just like what the people who put their time into creating and developing a free board for us. :? I am so disappointed in people.

You mean, like the special edition "Conquering Olympus" Bertie, of which 200 were made, which was released to celebrate the launch of Beta 1? The one with the red hoody, rather than the cream wool sweater.

Though, I would like another for for the Gold. Then I could have two. :)

Apples and oranges. Correct me if I am wrong but phpBB doesn't have stock options. :roll:
