I was talking about someone who wanted this type of car:
How do you know that that person hasn't already his attic insulated, his lighting LEDed, and his African and South Asian women... wait, forget the last part.
What if someone really just wants a car that polutes less, made by an industry that polutes less? That automatically make him an ostentatious environmentalist? Is it only possible to want this car only as a status symbol?
Solar energy isn't the only form of renewable energy.
paroneayea is Christopher Allan Webber, the core developer.
I have seen it on different places, so I tend to think it was disclosed. Maybe I'm always this dense. Also, I'm not a native speaker, and I may be losing some connotations and meanings, but I did not thing something to be disclosed has to be explained every time in the same page.
I don't know if it's my denseness, or my poor English skills, but I interpreted that when you used the word "undisclosed" you wanted to imply he was purposely keeping secret his affiliations.
The definition I found was:
Not disclosed; kept secret.
I didn't know it was kept secret.
You mean if they manage to do something useful. I'm not sure they can best the existing technologies.
It's logical that a major rewrite is needed once in a pair of decades. But it's surprising to me that after that, the game still changes so much from edition to edition, even with the goals you stated.
The problem is, if the game feels so different on each edition, many people won't change to the new one. I follow RPG.SE, and on that site, there are questions on all D&D editions (AD&D, 3, 3.5, pathfinder, 4, 5) which seems as a huge fanbase, but too fragmented.
Time will say if 5th edition is going to bring them all together.
I am annoyed on the contrary. I am surprised that such a long lived RPG still need to change drastically on every edition. Early editions would logically change more, but I am surprised that 30 years later they still need to make such huge changes between editions. If in three decades you haven't still invented a good skills system, I don't know if they would ever do.
This discussion is reaching higher levels of rhetoric.
Those games may be "engaging" when you want to play a game. When I want to do something different in the Internet, I feel more like annoyed.
AFAIK, it is neither free software nor open source. If you cannot fork it, it's not open source, even if the source code is published.
Open source is that which is open to read, modify, redistribute,... Not only open to read.
