A way to lock threads when mods want to lock them that works.
/still hangin around, just not as often. delete the SOTS unlocked thread.
A few factors are why I'm no longer hanging around actively, school, the editor not quite doing what I need it to yet and a few other things. But most of all I'm no longer actively posting here because of this thread's continued existence: http://forums.sc2mapster.com/general/general-chat/13581-sot-is-unlocked/#posts
One-shot actor with an event to fire whenever that missile's actor dies, there are lots of examples already in the game that do this just find one and tailor it to your needs. The impact on unit effect I think would be a bit trickier since you're not using the traditional weapon/damage engine so its kinda bypassing those engine event mechanisms.
A captured enemy playing down his knowledge and involvement in the enemy's activities? I am shocked and surprised that this highly unusual thing is playing out as part of this kid's tactics to keep his ass off the grill. /end sarcasm
This still has jack-all to do with him throwing a grenade that killed a medic and saying so that he did in court. He has also said he has no remorse over that action. He is an admitted enemy of the western nations, as a citizen of a western nation I do not want to see this kid ever set free again, he is a threat to my way of life. Sucks to be him.
The US does all kinds of shady crap, so what its irrelevant. Al Queda attacked the US so now a coalition of countries are at war with Al Queda, this kid is Al Queda and so as someone who's interests are better matched by those of the coalition then this guy and his crowd, its in my best interest that he rot. Yes its a shame when a civilian gets caught in the line of fire, but if people who plow planes into buildings had any regard for those same civilians they would make some efforts to avoid that instead of taking advantage of their presence and the coalition's goals to not kill civilians. So yah with a civ dies its a shame, when a person who plows planes into buildings dies its a good thing for the rest of us, and when someone who's job is to kill people who plow planes into buildings its a shame as well. This is of course from the point of view of someone who people who plow planes into buildings want to hurt.

He's not part of people who do that, and I'm not actually sure his father ever had ties to al Qaeda either. His only connection would have been the fact that he was in Afghanistan. They're not all al Qaeda, you do understand that right? And it's still only alleged that Omar even threw the grenade!! There is evidence that he didn't! Doesn't that mean anything to you? If it doesn't, I have to pull the prejudice card.
Did you even read the first article you linked? Go back and read it. Btw damn straight I'm prejudice against people who make threats on my life just for living in a western country, fuck them.
Who said anything about America's foreign policy being hunky-dory, and what does that have to do with this kid being captured while attacking coalition troops in a fire fight with people who plow planes into buildings? Stop changing the subject. He's part of people who plow planes into buildings and he shows no remorse for being part of people who plow planes into buildings. Screw him, leave him to rot.
Aye, I'm with you on how the CIA basically created these organizations in the first place during the cold war, that documentary called 'Rambo III' even glorified this whole process and then later "Charley Wilson's war" gave a 'better' picture of what went on (I kid). Unfortunately it doesn't absolve the reasoning of the current situation where Al-Queda decided that unlike the first time the US intervened and helped them they felt western influence shouldn't be involved and fought that with every measure they could. Regardless of how Al-Queda was born, its decided to wage war against the western world, and logically the western world has decided do so the same. Beyond all of that still, I really can't gather much sympathy for an organization that pushes for acts of violence against civilians and then hides among other non-combatants to shield them from retaliation. Similarly I cannot sympathize for someone who is part of those groups who employ those tactics.

There is a right way and wrong way of doing things. I think creating threads like this might only have the opposite effect by serving to annoy or put off people. You could have just added this to your project work place page, or your map page, but making another NWW thread (in this case, In the "General forums"), Might be overkill.
+1, spammers are annoying. This map is being spammed in the general forum and has been ever since he was caught using foul language in it.
It was, until the other guy kills a few thousand people first by plowing some planes into some buildings. Now all bets are off and its war, us vs them. Us being the world, them being assholes that plow planes into buildings to 'prove a point'. These ones just happen to be Muslims calling themselves Al-Queda. Man unfortunately you seem to be just trying to push the bleeding heart approach and conveniently forgetting why this whole mess started in the first place. I bet if you lost someone you knew to a terrorist attack you wouldn't be so gung ho on the 'save the turrirst!'. This is why the people who kill assholes who plow planes into buildings are called heros, and assholes who plow planes into buildings are called assholes who plow planes into buildings.
This kid was raised by assholes who plow planes into buildings to plow planes into buildings and there is little chance anyone will be able to convince him that's not the best thing to spend time trying to do. So sucks to be him, the end.
ED: I also formally request that any reference in future posts in this thread to 'terrorist' be replaced with 'asshole who plows planes into buildings', just to remind the person who the hell they're actually defending and/or condemning.
So you deal with one of your NWW mods hacking other people's maps yet? http://forums.sc2mapster.com/general/general-chat/14152-terrible-hacker/#p10
Locked, it is not :P (Hey, if this forum continues to host unlocking instructions for maps, I see no problem with unlocking its threads :P)
/Pls don't ban me :P
Yup, perhaps two buff behaviors who trigger each other on expire with what-ever countdown timer is best for the purposes. They'd just cycle between each other in the two states.
Me personally: I think he's a lost cause and as such either life imprisonment or lethal injection if its proved he did kill someone with a grenade. As much as think psychologists can be some pretty clever people too, there is no getting around 15 years of straight brain washing by such a militant single-minded cult as Al-Queda.
