We have enough quote spam with Awaclus's victory lap regarding longest necro.

The forum. It was down. I would happily help pay for the forum to not be down on the weekends. Start a Patreon, Theory!

 I'm sure this is the last thing theory wants. It's a forum he runs in his free time, and paying him will only create an obligation for him to immediately drop everything and fix the forum, which is unfair to expect from someone who is doing this in their free time.

Fundraising for infrastructure improvements, if those are needed to keep the forum stable, are one thing. Like if the problem is that the web server is 100 years old and keeps going down, hey we could all chip in for a new one! I don't know enough about why the forum keeps going down to speculate one way or another here.

I agree that fundraising to give Theory money to work on the forum more would not produce the desired outcome and would just generate ill will.

Not to pay Theory. I want a better server, if that is the problem.

Yeah I'm with this one.
theory would know better than anyone what the issues are.  But if theory does think that the issues would be fixed by a new server or something then I'd be happy to contribute. 

Let's see whether theory actually thinks this is a good idea before we starting raising the dough, eh?

That's not a problem.  If that computer is 100 years old, it should be worth a small fortune to people studying time travel or alien tech.

Not necessarily; it could have spent some time in a time loop (a la Primer) and exited without retaining any of the technology that went into making the loop.

I really do think it's solved now!  I've said it a bunch of times and it's never come true, but surely this time will be different.

Man that sounds like my last big project at work. Mine was eventually actually fixed too. I have faith in you.

Yes indeed!  So does this mean you might look into updating the post count names finally?

Spoiler: Theory has actually been trying to change the post count names for years, but every single time he does, the forum crashes until it goes back to the old way. "You can pry the Adventurer title from my cold dead hands!" the server echoes, overheating to the point of melting all backups of the forum's contents.

Yeah, turns out Throne Room and Moneylender weren't the only cards that needed to say "you may".

Amongst the many awkward things that this new edition introduces, it means that these post count titles make little sense now.

Maybe we could do some polls in the general forum as to which titles people want to see?  If you don't feel like picking new ones yourself, that is.

How do you think I feel?  I might need a new username now.
LibraryRanger?
LibraryExplorer?
They just don't have the same ring to them...

EDIT: There is still the expansion title. I could be LibraryAdventures, but that makes me not a person (then again, there is someone else here known as "chairs").
EDIT2: LibraryVenture? eh, not too bad...
EDIT3: I thought I'd go with LibraryVenture, but it seems you can't change your username. I'm going to be stuck being a dead card. It's like half of my forum identity no longer exists.    :-[ :'( :'( :'(
EDIT4: ...I could make a new account but then I couldn't modify the OP in my Resurgence thread...   :'(

...Well, it has new wording. I don't see how it's much better than the old wording. I'm indifferent.

I like that it no longer has retroactive instructions.
