^ Disemvowelled until Socratic can learn to at least try to speak civilly to other people. 

Ok I must admit that was pretty hilarious.

Every community is different. 

Your "facts" are nothing more than opinion. 

You're generalizing where you can't generalize. 

I claim that if the core of the community (I'd say the top 10% of players based on total time playing (game time, not calender time) to leave, the community would implode.

Who's right depends on the actual distribution of games played over users. I suspect the majority of games are played by a relatively small group of players without which the number of games available to play would drop off dramatically. It's only a theory of course. I'll have to look at my player data to confirm. (This could be done easily for igalcon, since phil provides the data himself.)


edit: Added that the theory could be tested for igalcon easily.

You misread, I didn't claim any fact beyond the fact of it happening in other games.

I stand by my stated opinion (that is backed by very similar experiences) that it most likely wouldn't implode.

I believe our thirst of an update doesnt come from a sense of entitlement, but a sense of disappointment. This game has the potential to be HUGE, its genius really. Touch screen and Galcon go hand-in-hand, and this community could be SO much bigger and SO much more profitable for Phil and us. Unfortunately, Galcon never has hit the mainstream, stayin under in a indie-cult like fashion.

Im just sad watching the community for a GREAT game slip away

Oh and one more thing,we are definitely NOT the 5%. Id say 20% of the ppl who play galcon also view the forums. And I want to see the numbers of new apple ids signing up every day and how long they stay.

Told you i'm not the only oldie who thinks what I think.

And pathetic that Nanno has to moderate every single post as if we are all 2 years old. No wonder this community dies daily..

Beginning of 2010, to half way through 2012. Hardly the same thing, and maybe it's just me but I disagree about it being old. ;)

You weren't even here when iGalcon, Flash, Labs, or IA Galcon came out. You joined at Fusion. =P

Actually it's starting to make sense how you feel. You literally haven't even been around long enough to see a real update to Galcon. I've been here for them all, and because of that I'm hardly worried about the next. You joined at the last update, you don't know how it works yet.

Don't worry, be patient and it'll happen.

Ive been here for a while and all id like is more experimentation with this game. It is definitely top 20 paid apps material, and there is a giant skill gap currently between the new online players and  the experienced ones. Im sure its driving a few away.

I'm not saying I don't want an update, simply that I understand it's coming.

Keep in mind what Nanno said about Chickon. The entirety of that game was testing possible changes to Galcon. Just before that if you recall Phil sent out one or two surveys to see what people would like to see changed in Galcon.

It's going to happen, it just has to happen the right way, and that can take time.

Chi-ro your facts are wrong. I'm a 2008er dumbo. And i've been around for way more than 5 updates.

I moderate to the appropriate age level. If you're going to act like a two-year-old, expect to be treated like a two-year-old. 

And if the community is dying daily, I would expect that is partly due to the appalling way in which people like yourself treat others on these forums. Why do you think it is ok to treat people like garbage just because you disagree with them? I would like an answer to this last question, please.

Yes, I'm a total idiot for believing that exactly what you've said yourself, and the join date on your profile is all a lie.

Seriously, you say something in one post then say the complete opposite in the next so often it makes my brain hurt.

I can settle this. The earliest date I can find on any of Socratic's accounts is "Lawl" on January 4, 2010. If I am wrong on this, he can easily prove it by naming his first Galcon account, which may have had a different email address than all the ones I've ever known him by (but I don't think there is one). 

If I am right about this, who is the "dumbo" now? ;)

Told you i'm not the only oldie who thinks what I think.

Socratic, get over yourself. Virtually everyone knows that Galcon is amazing and has lots of potential and that the game and community is slowly declining over time. There's nothing special in that. Aric said nothing about agreeing with your views on 'standoff' or your constant whining and lack of understanding about how things work, and why or why not Phil works the way he does and produces updates for Galcon the way he does. There's plenty in the way of what/how you think... and it's pretty ridiculous. You whine on the forums like a baby without understanding or even listening to and comprehending the reasons for why things are the way they are.


And pathetic that Nanno has to moderate every single post as if we are all 2 years old. No wonder this community dies daily..

There you go again with the whole "no wonder this community dies daily" thing. Just be quiet already? You're only showing off how much of an immature baby you are... you used bad language, so you were censored. It's as simple as that, yet you can't even understand something as basic as that. If you don't like it, leave? Then the community will actually 'die' a little. If you don't leave, how is it going to "die daily"??

@socratic: Seriously? You've devolved to a post that literally doesn't have a single sentence that's not personally attack someone and flaming.

There's no place for something this uncivil on the forums.

Let me remind you there are pretty basic rules to these forums:

"By using this forum you warrant that you will not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violate any laws."

Please refrain from breaking them again.

Sometime's it's best to just drop it and change topics.

This discussion is going nowhere anymore, so let's talk about something different.

I vote penguins.
