Ok, there has to be a clue in the word upstream - also it hints that when the game gets going that Warbrain is on our side and batting for us. Feels like a different sort of heist already...

It could be as easy as that the Directorate only listens to their Liasions, to avoid information overload. A nice way to say: -Don't call us, we call you!

Warbrain,

Thanks for taking us under your watchful eye. Looking forward to a great Heist!

Others,

Do we have an IRC channel or is this the more secure location to discuss the Heist once it starts?

Nice, welcome aboard Warbrain. Team liaisons... maybe we'll have to solve some puzzles by working with the other teams (Sharing info always played a big part anyway). Which could lead to lying and sending them on the wrong tracks...

but of course none of you is gonna do that because warbrain is WATCHING YOU! Or at least now he's the one who's going to do the dirty work wink hahaha just kidding!

Hi Warbrain.
Welcome as our Orange liaison.

I'm wondering .. has anyone asked you to officially ask the Directorate what our next move should be?

Sorry if its been done and this is redundant, but I didn't see it above.

And welcome again, regardless smile

I guess a signature of Go Orange Team! dates me, huh?

Hey, Warbrain, glad to have you on board. Is there any chance you know why some people are having difficulty PM'ing? It seems that several people are having to wait very long periods of time in order for their messages to be sent. Not that they've told the mods anything else about the mayhem around this place lately, but just in case I thought I'd ask.

I've been having the same issues.  However I've noticed that if you use safari and wait 30 seconds on the sending screen before you send.  You tend to have a better chance of getting it through.

I haven't noticed any issue with sending PMs.  It could just be a server-side issue.

Is it just in Safari or also happening in Firefox?

run all questions/issues through warbrain (v 1.0 or 2.0?). Do not circumvent this chain of command, or I assume, bad things can happen to you, and subsequently to the team. To all who've gone through BMT/basic training, this will be VERY familiar.
