Subsim: 16 Years on the Web and a Trivia Contest!


So, yeah, we've been here since
Clinton was president.
Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule from UK rule.
Princess Diana called for an immediate international ban on land mines (she was still young and pretty then)
Tony Blair became Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
Mike Tyson bit Evander Holyfield's ear (ouch!)
Steve Jobs returned to run Apple Computers
Internet Explorer version 4 released
The first book in the award winning Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling is published
Titanic, Jurassic Park, & Men in Black were the big films.
This was before Facebook, Youtube, and Google.

.

.

It wasn't always this nice and pretty here


.

In 16 years over 80,000 people have signed onto our forums. A little over 26,000 logged in sometime in 2012.

Well, I guess this is the part where I thank the people who made this happen.

Thanks to the moderators who help keep the forums sane.
Thanks to the game modders who work tirelessly to make the games even more fun.
Thanks to the donors, supporters, and contributors, you make the whole thing possible.
Thanks to the members who regularly take part in discussions, help other members, welcome new members, and make this place a home.
Thanks to the game developers who created the submarine and naval sims: we would be adrift without you.
Thanks to everyone who drops in, even for a single post. You count.

Looking forward to another year!

Ok, now, on to the fun stuff!



Here's how it's gonna work:

Rules
Over the next few days, a Subsim trivia question will appear in this thread. It will appear in a random sort of fashion, meaning who knows when. And your part in this scheme--you may guess at the answer. You may only guess ONCE per question, yeah? So, make your guess wisely. Make it count. No editing your post with a second guess.

Answer the questions in the same thread. This thread. Oh, just hit REPLY.

So, when Question 1 is posted, let's say you guess and guess wrong. Alas. You may not guess at Question 1 again. Someone will make a correct guess, and then Question 2 will be posted (try to keep up here). Now, you can take another wild shot at Question 2. If you are right, yay! You have a point in the prize pool, and then we move to Question 3, and everyone starts guessing.

Any members found using multiple forum accounts or starting a new forum account to play will be removed from the contest and the forum.

Points, prize pool, say what?
At the end of the contest, all the people who guessed correctly will have their name added to a winners list. If you guessed only one trivia correctly, your name will be in the list once. If you guess 4 questions correctly, your name will appear 4 times, greatly improving your chances at winning one of these prizes.

Prizes
Five people from the winners list will be drawn at random for one of these prizes.



Good luck!
Neal

Question 1: In Ultimation's Destroyer Command, which key is used to send out the sonar ping? (Key on the keyboard, not the game interface).

Answer in this thread.

So, the first trivia question has been answered and successfully. We knew that Targor was a crackerjack shot, now we know he's fast on the draw too!

Next trivia question to be posted within the next 12 hours. Without any warning or notice, just like that enemy escort that appears out of the fog.

Feel free to post comments and 16th anniversary celebratory remarks in this thread as well.

Well then I just might.

Congrats to the community for keeping it on an even keel, well done to all the modders that surely make people come here in the first place, and a big hearty thank you to Neal for starting it all, and for still putting up with us.

Happy Hunting!

Grats Subsim, and thanks Neal for giving us such a place.

Good place, great community, no awesome community!

Shall we keep it up another 16 years?

Congratz SUBSIM for another year, and I'm more than happy to be part of it!

Congratz NEAL, for fighting so hard to keep this up, running and improving all these years!

If I have one regret, a big one, is following SUBSIM for many years without registering.
I've been lurking around since Jane's 688, but only signed up in 2007

Congratulations Onkel Neal and SUBSIM Where would we old lags be without you. It has been an honour and priviledge to be a member these last 10 years

Best wishes for the future.
