In some Level of Month event you sent a level that wasn't designed seriously! Also changing the nick name very often wasn't the conventional way either! Or creating imaginary nation.

Well those things I did, no question about it! You could call it hack the system or wrong, but those are good things! Actually the point was to hack myself, my dedication to the system of ideas that were forced upon me since birth. It's a good way to get new perspectives of things, and some of those things also evolve to good things for the community.

Thanks, fixed.

I did some other fixes too to text, grammar and presentation.

Also a few bugs:

- Zweq was for some reason the 5th in ballelma battle total points but not in the source material (http://zebra.mbnet.fi/stats/ballelma_20 ... op_500.txt)
- Two images were broken: my across times on paper (1999) and Amsterdam (2013)

- Added links to https://archive.moposite.com/guide/elas ... 10-07.html in relevant places
- Added link to Across Done Quick (32:24,94)
- Added LOS Cup winner name (it was one of the requested data listed in the first post of this topic -- GREAT addition)
- Added Labs being the first player under both 34 minutes and 33 minutes in the personal total times list of Across

(EDQ-420 is still missing because it needs more work to make it fit into the article.)

[1] "13. The first evidence of battles I found is mrDJ's KOM interview in 2001-05-01 but I'm pretty sure the battles started already in 2000. If you IRC logs in 2000, please find by "battle" term."
[2] "31. Playing many replays makes browser slow. Freeing memory needed with recplay. (update 2020-05-29: feels better these days? I updated the script so either Maxdamantus fixed it or my browser handles it better now)"

Bonus:

- Add a new article request: 34. Anyone having an Elma related ICQ screenshot? The older the better. Looks like ICQ might have been used before IRC (https://media.pulu.org/palsta/files/60/ ... -07-31.txt).
