    I'd say in this case its a bit special. Not because of his reasons for doing it, but GF has been for a long time the voice of the Code and he has provided lots of entertainment to the community. I must admit, when he first turned up, i thought, "Who is this complete and utter <censored>?", but over time, came to appreciate his rather quirkly sense of humour and his war and peace long posts. Also, in case anyone is wondering, do not mistake GF for TheCodePR account on reddit. That is not controlled by him, and the person running that account has no PR skills whatsoever.

    Tomorrow we meet at Ghost of Jupiter (for those who can make it). As far as i recall, no landable planets there. If not, keep in touch via discord, we will select a nearby system to land of and say hello again, and perhaps some SLF or SRV fun. If you spot a good candidate planet nearby, please share.

    On the topic of Harry Potter being involved, a bit of a surpirse, but until he does something, you can't discriminate. Rinzler is known as an Explorer and has been to Beagle Point and back without shooting anyone. Discovered this when i was on Distant Worlds and saw his name on a system on the far side of the Abyss. In other words, he wasn't a follower like many on Distant Worlds, he went there prior to it. No, what i'm outraged about is how you guys got a sticky and my expedition didn't! Oh, and a mention in the newsletter! *grumbles* (seriously, congrats on that) #fdmodssuck :P

    The Code without its spokesperson is no longer the code. What's your plans now? Perhaps join an exploration expedition. *chuckles in the background*

    And yet OP, explorers go out time and again into the black, sometimes for months at a time. There is something there, calling us, the call of the unknown. The slimmest chance of finding something different, something amazingly rare. Sure, we explorers would love more content, but there again, all areas could do with more content. We know it, FD know it, and FD are working on it. Its all just a matter of time and priorities. What you want right now would conflict with what others want right now. Just chill, things will come. In the meantime, explorers will explore, and if you want to get involved, Silly Ships 2 leaves this evening, for the end of the Orion Spur. https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/335807-Silly-Ships-2-So-Long-and-Thanks-for-all-the-Fish

    Just a reminder. Fleetcomm Discord is our global chat channel. Fleetcomm is the PG we will be meeting in. In game text comms once people are together for general chit chat. If you are not on Discord, i recommend you join.

    some time ago the group roster would time out after 15,000 members, to combat the time out effect frontier disabled the who was online feature, they have since done nothing about it but it now means that we can fill the group to 20,000 which we have done on a few occasions. RealPupEt is right about the friends list as I have a few thousand on my FL so I get a goo impression as to how many are online.

    Of course not! FD employees come into the office every day and don't think about the various aspects relating to their work. /s Come on, speculate if you want, but of course they have considered it. Do we have prices yet? It appears that players will have the option of buying various package, basic ED, Commanders Pack, and the "Legendary" edition (includes Horizons). I'm used to PS4 games costing more than PC... i remember when considering buying No Man's Sky, the PC version was almost half the price of the PS4 version, so hard to compare. But if comparitavly, the basic version is relatively cheap then its all down to the players themselves whether they want the basic package or not. I doubt the PS4 owners are getting the short end of anything, except for that on consoles you tend to end up paying more than on the PC, but that's part of the life on consoles. I mean, i might get ED for the PS4, so i can sit in bed and play (PS4 is in the bedroom) but only if its no more expensive than on the PC. ...

    Depends on what they mean overall. If they mean there are only 3 people in the whole of SC working on game programming, i'd be rather horrified. What gets me more is the title of that vid. Eclipsing the competition. What competition? They need to release a game first.... and then who would they be competing with? Some might say ED, but its a completely different flight model, more akin to a ground based FPS, and its not going to win over the explorers, traders are out until they get actual trade, or mining for that matter. Combat in SC is... erm... yeah. First person? LOL.... 2 maps and from what i've seen, a pretty poor FPS game in general. Overwatch and Paladins and TF2 are all superior in terms of fun. If looking at deep immersion, which is what they are aiming for... then maybe there is a niche. Second Life has had its day.... the Sims is too abstract... maybe there is some place there where they can compete... with... erm.. not sure.

    This is the problem with using analogies in trying to illustrate any argument made, as Scott Adams points out ("The Dilbert guy" @ScottAdamsSays ), debaters oft end up arguing about either: 1. the validity of the analogies used (and the persuasiveness of the argument is diffused) or more commonly 2. The analogy itself (and the argument is forgotten about).

    Haha Jan Ravens is very talented, her and Rory Bremner together are outliers in impressionist showbiz in the ability to capture the essence of a person's mannerisms and body language. As for "... politically asserting the interests of business big or small ...", I do, yet I don't have any skin in the game. Her Diane Abbott is spooky:
