I understand that people are frustrated - but I don't think thats a profitable or appropriate response.
Whose first language isn't English?

Fixed.

P.S. What, the mods called someone a dumb ****?

Nobody is making fun about anything. Everybody is a bit sad... Sombre even.

You've got it totally backwards. Nobody is Sombre on these forums anymore, and that is the problem in a nutshell!

I really know I should add something useful to this incredible post. But it's late, I'm tired, and just too Sombre now.

And now for actually being sombre for a moment: I appreciate the Dom3 forum because it is usually a helpful place, where people stick to discussing topics related to the game in the appropriate subforums. When somebody has a problem, he can post about it and people will try to help.

I despise the sort of in-jokes that has made the OP post three (or more?) different threads all including the word "sombre", which has the rest of you who are "in" on it in stiches, trolling this thread and finding it highly amusing that people actually tried to give answers based on what the OP wrote in his first post. We've ended up with a five pages (and growing) thread where probably only Verjigorm, Graeme Dice, chrispedersen, and Radio_Star are not in violation of the forum rules and with a signal to noise ratio so low that it is nearly nonexistent.

And if that seemed excessively sombre for some of you, well, so mote it be. I can only hope that this and Maerlande's other recent threads are a temporary aberration and not a sign of things to come.

Do you honestly think that the purpose of this thread is not partially the simple fact that it is in violation of the forum rules?

don't worry. we'll all get banned for breaking the rules anyways. and we won't even get the temp ban that is part of those rules because we have to adhere to them, but the all powerful mods clearly do not

Frozen Lama, how could you so blatantly misquote Peter Ebbesen? I distinctly remember his post being something much more along the lines of:
