    Edit: Sorry, wrong thread. I was posting in the Steam thread. Dunno what happened.
  24. Re: What happened to the old good people over here?

    However, I haven't been proactively tracking issues as I used to do and I am no longer a regular staff.

    Hopefully I will be able to interact more soon.
