As for the source contribution program it makes no sense at all to me.

Re: How many hours have you played?

I guess it wasn't that clear but I have played about as many years as zweq but he has played maybe 20 times more. So no, I'm not interested in how many years you have played.

I'm more interested to see the dedication some people have. I'm sure you can make sense of it if you try harder.

Friendship is such a weird thing for me. I have so many thoughts about it, but nobody to share it with.

It's a computer generated rec with altered physics. Rec here: https://elma.online/r/drnj90fzlp

It's actually my AI showing off its pipe skills. (It's really hard to play with altered physics, much harder than it looks).

Basically it just means you can use Elma Imager (somewhat) for modded recs.
