So to make a long story short, I’ve been unable to reach Bolt. He made no mention of being unreachable beforehand, so I’m worried something may have happened to him. An accident, perhaps? I’ve tried PMs, Discord, Twitter, Skype, and even his phone. No luck. Anyway, due to his unexplained absence, I shall be taking over his duties as de facto head of Court Records for the time being. Hopefully, it won’t be too long before he returns (hopefully with an explanation for his unannounced disappearance). Worst-case scenario, I’ll be in charge indefinitely. Still, if that is what must be done to keep the forum running, then that is what will be done.

Ur dihara Court Records!

Uhh is that really necessary? I mean, it's not like he's been MIA as much as Wooster has been. ...Yet.

(Besides isn't this something to go over with the staff first? lol)

Good luck getting Henke and our other European staffers out of their beds at this hour--you'll need it. I'll grant that Bolt hasn't been gone that long, but considering that I just flat-out can't reach him at all, even on his phone, I think I'm somewhat justified in worrying. You're free to call an emergency staff meeting on Discord, but again, considering the time, I doubt we'll have enough people present to decide the matter anytime soon. Someone has to keep this place running until then, and since I didn't see anyone else stepping forward, I chose to do it.

Come to think of it, Bad Player, the last time you and Bolt spoke, it was that nasty argument you two got into over DGS. It was frankly tempting to call for both of you to be demoted with how much you were going at it... You wouldn't happen to know anything about Bolt's disappearance, would you?

Bolt knows (or should know, at least) how great it is lording the knowledge and experience of the Japanese-only games, and the games in general before they release in English. Plus DGS specifically is uniquely Japanese due to the way it's structured (even if it mostly takes place in England), so I still don't see how he could think a localization could do it justice. Plus even if that fan group is going to localize it on their own anyway, giving them a platform on our site seems stupid to me, considering the questionable legality and the fact that they probably aren't even going to finish it anyway.

...but that's not the point of this, is it. If there's only a few staff members isn't that more reason to wait to do this kind of thing? Just because you have a green name doesn't mean you can do whatever you want

Correct, it isn't the point of this. So why did you make it the point? I can't help but suspect that it has something to do with you not wanting to answer my previous question. Now, why would Bad Player not want to answer a simple question about his knowledge (or lack thereof) of Bolt's situation? You're starting to look awfully guilty to me, and your little anti-localization rant even provides a motive...

...I think I see now. You're hoping to stop the localization effort, aren't you? Since Bolt stopped you at the meeting, you had to resort to less honorable methods. I will not stand for this, Bad Player. You'll be free to make your case at the next meeting, but until then, I cannot allow you to continue to have mod powers. I can't risk you interfering with the project.

Attempting a coup, Bad Player? You seem to forget who controls the user titles. Good luck defending your actions at the next meeting--you'll need it.

Gm... I can't rule out the possibility that Bad Player has allies among the userbase. It would be problematic if they tried to interfere with the localization effort...

I hereby issue the Non-Localization Culpability Act. Any who publicly voice opposition to the DGS localization project risk being banned as a precaution.

Actually, DGS isn't even that great a game. Why the heck do you need to localise it? Let it rot in Japan for eternity. Let's just stop the translation now while we can, yeah? It's for the best, and it's not like anyone actually wants to play the game.

Every Ace Attorney game is bad. The main series should never have been localized smh.

I knew that Bad Player was up to no good, with his poor taste in game series'. DGS is the best and needs to be localized. I for one, welcome our new GL overlord.

Although as the newest CR staff member my opinion doesn't hold too much weight, I cannot support the new regime change. Bolt would not have wanted the tyrant General Luigi in charge of CR in his unexplained absence, that much I'm sure of.

Also, as my go-to guy for Japanese language help I must pledge my allegiance to BP. After all, any real Ace Attorney fans would learn Japanese to play DGS + DGS2, right? I don't think it's too much to ask.

Honestly i think BoltStorm was a good boy, but now that he's missing I think General Luigi is the new good boy!
Also it's ok for DGS, I'm glad they left the game only in Japanese. Like, in English they totally would have ruined all the puns and they would have localized the names.
Also don't forget all those racist dialogues. Eshiro has the best ideas for the franchise, and I'm glad they brought Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice, truly the best Ace Attorney games in the series for introducing iconic elements like Athena Cykes, The Phantom and, above all, Khura'in and its regime.

Khura'in > Borginia by the way.

It's far beyond that! If BP is willing to risk open revolution then the only way to combat this traitorous filth is with an open display of force and martial law!

Tsar Luigi needs to give the word that we might rally against this insurrection and bring the traitors into line with the new regime! No one will stand against the great localisation forces when DGS comes to Glorious West!

Wait, don't drag another admin into this the conspiracies are complex enough with the ones we have now.

But seriously, I wasn't aware someone in the site still had contact with Wooster. I thought he had just been inactive for a while without much explanation.

I'm fairly sure like other former staff he quietly drops by from time to time to see how things are going but for the most part is busy with other things.

Wooster's not hard to track down if you know how to find him. I ran into him by chance on a certain website I personally have a long history with about 10 years ago and I kept in touch with him through that site. I haven't visited that site in about....I wanna say six years now but it is about time for me to make my presence known over there like I have here after a long absence :godot:
