This kind of usage ('coöperate,' etc.) is ugly and confusing. Hyphenation is a better choice in almost every example, if you simply must. ('naïve' is the only excusable one I can think of, and even then you'd be fine just writing it 'naive.')

If you don't believe me, let's wait and see how long it is before somebody uses a diaeresis in a company slogan, where this kind of stuff really matters.

Wow, is there no topic you cannot be insulting about? You've got a real gift.

Apropos of nothing, diaeresis is a fantastic word. Its like diarrhea and thesis mashed together.

So, to ... uh ... ignore the OT discussion, is there some kind of timeline on when to expect the site to be fully back? It was pure awesomeness last round, and it would be awesomeness² if it came back online again.

I miss it so much! T.T

I love the new features on the toys, very spiffy. One tiny thing; Could you add the faction badges to the island leaders page as well? It would be greatly appreciated.

Mi sembra che la meta' di Skyrati parlano l'italiano.

Ace. That wasn't an insult. This is an insult: "Va a la mona di tua sorella."
