I have this brilliant idea:
Let's go to a bunch of game site forums (example: GameFAQs) and start topics such as "Outpost 2 Fan Site" or something. This will hopefully get people more interested in the game again!

Actaully, we have done things like this. This was back in the days when I first got the xfir.net domain, however.

Mm....I'd be up for spreading the Outpost word in an Australian gaming magazine forum - PCPowerplay. I'm a well-known member and moderator there, so I'd attract some attention, but I would like a few of you guys to join up and post some propaganda of your own. :)

let's see, the 2 forumites that I'm trying to get to try it are way too bussy (I believe them, life's hectic at times)

i might be able to speak to an editor of a major games maganize here in portugal... but i don't promise anything. the only thing he could pull out for WoW (World Of Warcraft, BIG MMORPG comin out from Blizzard) was half a page... but i guess it won't hurt trying. i'll try posting on some big game forums around...

The only thing i'm worried about it's because 60% of the portuguese game fac comunity is... how would i say... imagine that cs player that doesn't shut up, acuses you of cheting every frag you score, yadda yadda yada, and the minute you connect to server you already want to rip his guts out... Those are the majority of the portuguese players =\

I sure hope you aren't that type...

if there's a problem, they'll have to deal with players like Paco (very big ego (hehehe, I have such evil thoughts)) or if they are on the forum x, Hacker, phil, lev, beta, or I will deal with them (most likely lev or I.  If I remember correctally, you hate to be accused of cheating, right lev?)

i got it! we could right it on the moon in english so everyone could see it and those who didnt speak english would get curious and learn english so we wouldnt have any language barriers

CK, fly your happy but up there and get to work
how to insult a klingon:

qatlh Quch Hab ghaj no'ra'
vaj HabHa''a' je 'uSDu'lIj joj

wich translates roughly to:

how come you guys never had those for head bumps in the first staktrek series and do you guys have bumps like that on your genitals too?

It would be too hard to write it on the Moon, because what if an asteroid crashed into it?  :P

Maybe we could pay Disney to have the address to the site on one of their parade floats. That'll be, what, a million dolars a letter?  :lol:
