    Go away CIV newbs! We were once like you, and are ashamed..

    Even if they have played civ for long it would be hard to understand them if they haven't discussed civ with anyone.

      Then where (if not here) the newbies like me should be? I'm not a newbie in Civgames, only at this forum.
      I'm not a complete idiot: some parts are still missing.

              Lemmy, you forgot to change the colors, you user of default style.

              What is the difference between this, this, this and this?

                huh? i did change it, i remember changing it.

                i changed it again now, at home on my own computer, i was at school before, maybe that was the problem.

                at what's wrong with default, default is cool
                and links changed my prefs

                <Kassiopeia> you don't keep the virgins in your lair at a sodomising distance from your beasts or male prisoners. If you devirginised them yourself, though, that's another story. If they devirginised each other, then, I hope you had that webcam running.

                  As Far As I Know, it relates to the Civilization model (every version) where the winner will usually be the player who develop his/her civ lasting forever and ending as big as possible, a role in real world only China can fit.

                    Now it works, and remember to change it every time you edit. (I keep a unposted file saved on my HD)

                    at what's wrong with default, default is cool

                    All that light. I'm a dark soul

                    and links changed my prefs

                    That is what they do, but if you use the first link you will get Default again.

                          Gramphos, nice list, but you forgot the other common names

                          YYYH- Yo_Yo_Yo_Hey (Along with Spink, one of the two first permabanned Apolytoners)
                          Spink- Stewart Spink (SEE YYYH)
                          DC- DarkCloud
                          UR- Urban Ranger

                            Actually, I'm not the one that updates the list in most cases, Lemmy does that. I just change the layout of it, and no Names that not have been listed here, and I haven't added myself are in the list. It is still being updated.

                              I cant believe this one is missing:

                              ADM - Attack Defence Movement (unit strengths)
                              I'm building a wagon! On some other part of the internets, obviously (but not that other site).
