Jonathan takes on a partner (in Changelog)
This is a lot of fun to write. There has never been a Changelog post like this before.
NightStrike has agreed to buy an interest in CB and help develop it into the future. So you'll see him making changelog posts and sporting his shiny new Admin tag Real Soon Now. I'm very pleased to have his help; he's an accomplished programmer, and brings a fresh perspective to growing the CB community.
We now return you to your Saturday morning ranting about the Inspect changes. (I'm working on Show All. Now take a deep breath.)
P.S. We'd both like to request that ideas, bug reports, and complaints continue to be directed to the General forum; in other words, please don't spam NS's inbox or he'll turn into a grumpy curmudgeon like me. :)

Oh wow. I did not see that coming. Congrats, NS!
June 28 2008 12:32 PM EDT
Great choice Jonathan, it will be exciting to have two people working on CB. :)
June 28 2008 12:33 PM EDT
WOOOOOT that is fantastic news!
Awesome way to go NIGHTSTRIKE!!!!
Best. Changelog. Ever.
congrats Nightstrike! I hope you get your shiny admin tag soon. I also hope that it doesn't drive you mad ^^
June 28 2008 12:36 PM EDT
Wow. Just... wow. Go Nightstrike! I'm very curious to see what this means for CB in the future. Wow.
3 cheers for NS!
*waits for OB to flash him, hehe
June 28 2008 12:38 PM EDT

June 28 2008 12:39 PM EDT

<NightStrike> you're also the recippient of my first admin action :)

Admin virginity lost to me.
Congratulations NS I was waiting to see this post!
Hehe surprise surprise ^_^ Congrats all the way NS ^_^
June 28 2008 12:56 PM EDT
... So you're saying we can buy interest in CB? Hmm, I wonder how much one would have to pay for that...
June 28 2008 12:58 PM EDT
thats why you never wanted the QB, congrats
June 28 2008 12:59 PM EDT
This was totally from left field.
June 28 2008 1:19 PM EDT
Congrats NightStrike and hooray for partnership :)
June 28 2008 1:26 PM EDT

Surprise surprise surprise....
I don't think we need to spam his inbox for NS to turn into a "grumpy curmudgeon" :P
he already is grumpy?
hmmm, I really need to talk more often in chat...
oh well, gratz dude.
June 28 2008 2:09 PM EDT
/me golf claps...
Wow never saw this coming... but good stuff guys...
Does this mean change months will be twice as crazy now? =P
June 28 2008 2:16 PM EDT
"Does this mean change months will be twice as crazy now? =P"
Hopefully. Congrats, NightStrike!
So... in 20 years... will it be Jon's kids, or NS's kids running this game? :P
June 28 2008 5:10 PM EDT
Or perhaps, in twenty years, there would be no difference between Jon's kids and NightStrike's kids... Bum, bum, bum.
June 28 2008 5:13 PM EDT
Congrats to both Jon & NS :)
June 28 2008 5:19 PM EDT
Congrats to the use of the word 'curmudgeon', Jon, you really do give us some nice insight into that grey matter of yours occasionally :)
Hakai is a guy!? o.O
And gratz NS.
Congrats NS, welcome to the fold! :) I hope you like the new partnership!
<sarcasm> I don't like it. That would only make CB twice as interesting. I MORE interesting change. please please please.</sarcasm>
June 28 2008 7:38 PM EDT
So does that mean we have twice as much change month going forward ? :)
June 28 2008 7:47 PM EDT
Silva - no, Hakai is not a guy.
June 29 2008 1:17 AM EDT
"Hakai is a guy!? o.O "
Wth? where did that even come from? And, no. Last time I checked I was not a guy.
Hmm... I need to become a programmer. Then I can create cool games.
June 30 2008 5:14 AM EDT
I completely missed this. Good stuff!
Strange but very cool changelog!
Congratulations to you, NightStrike, I'm sure this new partnership will do heaps of good to the game. I do not know you personally, but I can, as anyone with forum access can, see that you have had great influence on this gaming environment so far.
PS: Also, with the recent changes, I feel much closer to my CB-T :)
I'm glad I was around. It's like CB3, but without a number change :P
YAY! (I remember reading that you don't drink, but here, have a virtual beer, and 3000 Respect Points.)
June 30 2008 5:23 PM EDT
Congrats NS :)
Heh. Way back when Nightstrike had the popular vote for QB but didn't win, I mailed Jon and told him to just stick Admin in front of Nightstrike's name and disqualify him from any future QB votes. It took him awhile, but he finally got around to it. Congrats!
