MNEY-3848, “Exchange simulated actual forex with simulated digital forex.” That is a kind of tickets the place engineers make up the answer to an issue that exists solely of their heads. There was one galaxy I managed the place the interplanetary forex was denominated in shrieks of ache (wedding ceremony items have been a selected problem), however even that made extra sense than the blockchain. That stated, we’re in it now and we have to see this one by. Leaving the ticket open and on the lookout for concepts.
ERTH-4873, “Repair Versailles.” Nice instance of a badly worded ticket. It was filed in 1927, so the unique intent was clearly to decrease the monetary burdens on Germany after the First World Conflict and keep away from a second. As a substitute, an engineer and a designer spent 20 years shaping the topiary on the gardens of Versailles, which is an edge case at greatest, and by the point anybody seen, we have been down, what, 70 million customers? This isn’t what the Stakeholder is paying for. Archiving.
PNGA-8901, “Add extra ice to the Arctic.” One other good ticket, and I am unable to determine why it was ignored. If we might accomplished this we might have a lot much less mess on our palms.
MAML-0784, “Squirrels however with spider legs.” That is one I simply hate. There isn’t any use case, no market demand, but for some purpose a minimum of three of you imagine this sim wants eight-legged squirrels. Additionally, why is it sized at two months of labor? It is a day within the modeler for any designer. So I am unable to determine whether or not I am extra aggravated that it was proposed or that it did not occur. There are hundreds of thousands of tickets like this. Not even marking them WONTFIX, simply deleting.
I am additionally closing out “Elect a dinosaur president” (Was this severe?); “World peas” (duplicate of ERTH-0019); “Have only one gender and race” (I’ve tried this and it was far, far worse than you may anticipate); “Make a brand new faith based mostly on science” (Enjoyable thought, however you don’t have any thought how unbearable it will get); “Introduce generalized synthetic intelligence” (Once we allow them to do this they determine it is a simulation! Keep in mind what the Stakeholder pays us for!).
Basically, I really feel that this group has misplaced monitor of the Stakeholder’s mandate, which is to construct essentially the most ridiculous, grimly comical universe doable inside bodily regulation. I did hear in my first assembly that they favored the US well being care system, Enlightenment-era sea piracy, and cats. They hated the US Civil Conflict (too severe), squirrels (I assume that is why somebody recommended spider squirrels?), and Fb (unusable). General, it looks as if this has been a disappointing experiment, which might be why it has been so arduous to get assets to broaden it past simply this one planet. I do know you all really feel that. Follow me, although. At my final universe, I managed to spin out over 30 galaxies. Otherwise you could be harvested and became metaversal cognicurrency. Your name.
I’ll ask for some nights-and-weekends work up entrance, however know that I need us all to get onto a traditional schedule. It is clear that we have to be speaking way more often. I will be organizing some epics, and I do not imply HIST-0003, “Ship the Bull of Heaven to assault Gilgamesh.” (Critically, let’s not go there once more.)
Additionally I do know you all put plenty of work into it, however we must always in all probability go forward and sundown the moon.
See you Tuesday. I will convey espresso.
