    Spore Internal Server Error

    This is definitely a non-wtf, but I think it's worth sharing.

    I went to see what this Spore Creature Creator thing was all about and I got a "500 Internal Server Error" page with a pretty picture:

    How nice of them to put such a beautiful picture. Perhaps they could use a more friendly message than "Internal Server Error", though..

    If mixed metaphors were illegal, I'd be having an indigestion.

    That's why there are other forums here, like "General Discussion".

     

    Still, that's pretty awesome.

    Just because snoofie doesn't know how to post a new thread doesn't mean this thread isn't in the wrong place, too.  I didn't mean to turn this into an etiquette flamefest, I was just trying to let you know there are more appropriate places for this thread.  TRWTF is that your argument seems to be "somebody else did it wrong so I should be allowed to do it wrong too!"

    Please don't take to constructive criticism so poorly. Morbius gave you a simple suggestion, and he was polite about it.

    You're right, of course.

    My response came out way much harsher than I meant. I apologize.

    I guess I'm a bit frustrated about the quality of the forums as of late (not that I'm helping in any way). That's no reason to take it out on you, obviously, but it just goes to show how easily one can go about writing "tense" posts and then regretting.

    Again my apologies.

    Nah, it's cool.  Didn't mean to come off as harsh, either, was just trying to let people know about the other forums in case they missed it.  I know ammoQ will move incorrectly placed threads sometimes and I didn't want to make more work for him.

    But thanks to your post, I figured it out, and now I know better!

    Be brief, no matter how long it takes.
