The infamous Quenton Heever Proposal mockup originates from Bob. Bob liked to honor the April fool's tradition, and on one April the first he created that card image and offered it on ebay as a real card, claiming he had traded the card from some guy in Japan. He set to reserve to $ 1,000,000 US to ...

The old forum will be taken offline eventually, but I dare not to haste. dragsamou's website project is still much too young to put the old website to rest for good.

The decision to remove the links is a good one. I grew discontent with them myself (because they were a somewhat coincidental collection lacking any deeper means) which is why my new website did not contain a Links section at all. Either leave them off or do a constructed approach (if you have the t...

Now that you have removed the zero post members, one thing you should do is correct the post counter for everybody. The counter is off because the old YaBB forum (the forum before the last forum) did not decrease the number when posts were deleted, the last and this forum do. This will turn out even...

the end

Quite understandably, questions have arisen about the course this website will take. With great relief, I hereby present you the long overdue answers: Why have their been no updates for such a long time? While I was short on time for about a month, the ultimate reason is that I do not feel commited ...

official card name pronounciations

Matt Cavotta sporadically does a column about how to correctly pronounce card names. The latest incarnation is especially insightful as it covers some terms which reach back to the oldest days of Magic.

The card in the auction is supposed to be different because of its "APAC foil etchings". I am sceptical. dragsamou, are you going to interview the seller about this?

It seems that the release of new Gateway cards is synchronized with the release of new sets. The latest three (which dragsamou named) were released in conjunction with Planar Chaos, and two of them are alternate art versions of Planar Chaos cards. The same pattern applies to the first three cards in...

I have received a copy of the Deep Analysis FNM promo (from a German store owner). I can not confirm that is looks oddly different from my other FNM cards. I directly compared it to Fire // Ice (from the US - thank you, mintcollector). Deep Analysis looks a tad darker than Ice, but the difference is...

There are two kinds of prerelease cards without date. One kind, like yours, does not show the date but still shows signs of the stamp. As you state now, it can be forged. I still assume that there are quite a few legitimate copies around which are simply misprinted. The other kind does not only miss...

Yes, it keeps away the spam posts which is good. Unfortunately, it does not stop the pollution of the member database. At the moment, I presume more than 1000 member accounts are just spam. Let us hope phpBB 3.0 will offer additional protection measures. Regarding workload, the current method does n...
