:lol:
If I roll my eyes too, do i get a prize? ;)

Anyway, to answer your question gunnyfreak: no, Mecron is not a programmer, he is the CEO and Creative Director (the wiki also calls him Lead Designer and Alien Designer) as well as the point man on many of the interviews as well as the guiding force here.

I think its possible Black 21 is the new 'Vampiric' type GM.

What Vampiric GM?

And so Mecron has never been a technical person, even before KP?

And that's why you don't let other people use your account.

Why didn't he just get his own, anyway? It's not like they cost anything.

IIRC he studied AI programming at UBC, so yeah he has an idea how code works... he just hasn't written any in a long time. He operates more at a design architecture level when he does technical stuff, I would imagine.

Mecron simply tells other people what games he likes, so they can make it for him :)

I'm probably wrong, but if Black 21 isn't just another Suul'ka, I say the beings of node space are not to pleased with us continuing to damage their "Universe?" and have found a more frightening way to cause devastation to the races of 'normal space'.
