Jonathan takes on a partner (in Changelog)

AdminJonathan June 28 2008 12:31 PM EDT

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. :)

ResistanZ2 [The Knighthood] June 28 2008 12:32 PM EDT

Oh wow. I did not see that coming. Congrats, NS!

Relic June 28 2008 12:32 PM EDT

Great choice Jonathan, it will be exciting to have two people working on CB. :)

IndependenZ 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.

Lord Bob 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...

QBsutekh137 June 28 2008 12:58 PM EDT

Congrats, NS!

Brakke Bres [Ow man] June 28 2008 12:58 PM EDT

I don't think we need to spam his inbox for NS to turn into a "grumpy curmudgeon" :P

{cb1}Linguala June 28 2008 2:01 PM EDT

he already is grumpy?
hmmm, I really need to talk more often in chat...

/me golf claps...

Wow never saw this coming... but good stuff guys...

Does this mean change months will be twice as crazy now? =P

VivaPinata June 28 2008 2:16 PM EDT

"Does this mean change months will be twice as crazy now? =P"

Hopefully. Congrats, NightStrike!

TheHatchetman June 28 2008 3:41 PM EDT

So... in 20 years... will it be Jon's kids, or NS's kids running this game? :P

VivaPinata 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.

hzarb June 28 2008 5:13 PM EDT

Congrats to both Jon & NS :)

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] June 28 2008 5:54 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 :)

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] June 28 2008 7:06 PM EDT

Hakai is a guy!? o.O

And gratz NS.

AdminQBVerifex June 28 2008 7:13 PM EDT

Congrats NS, welcome to the fold! :) I hope you like the new partnership!

Wizard'sFirstRule June 28 2008 7:34 PM EDT

<sarcasm> I don't like it. That would only make CB twice as interesting. I MORE interesting change. please please please.</sarcasm>

Usul [CHOAM] June 28 2008 7:38 PM EDT


So does that mean we have twice as much change month going forward ? :)

QBOddBird June 28 2008 7:47 PM EDT

Silva - no, Hakai is not a guy.

Flamey June 29 2008 1:17 AM EDT

congrats NS.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] June 29 2008 1:21 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.

[LittleRed]Calynne June 29 2008 1:35 AM EDT

Hmm... I need to become a programmer. Then I can create cool games.

Vaynard [Fees Dirt Cheap] June 29 2008 2:47 AM EDT

Congrats NS!

QBJohnnywas June 30 2008 5:14 AM EDT

I completely missed this. Good stuff!

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] June 30 2008 4:22 PM EDT

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.)

{CB1}-Mokaba June 30 2008 5:23 PM EDT

Congrats NS :)

Thraklight Resonance June 30 2008 6:28 PM EDT

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!
