Let's cut the shit and get down to the real issues here, after all I have better things to do with my time then to engage in pointless internet kid drama.
First I'll say that Mod the Galaxy has been a great learning tool for myself and a few others that are on Hydian. So thank you for the public resource.
Now I'll be very blunt

Who said anything about the engine being modified? Do you have some sort of proof or are you just pulling this out of your ass to create a stink? I read his post quite clearly and didn't see any mention about the engine being modified.
Better yet, since you want to act like a legal eagle I'll direct you to a lawyer I worked with at a gaming company, she can help you understand Open Source and IP, http://www.linkedin.com/in/punklawyer

Timer? How is that a lie? Are you claiming someone has developed a super secret weapon that somehow modifies the clocks in your house to read a different time and mask the true time you spend sitting on a server? I don't really understand your point to this, it's as easy as logging onto a server, sitting down and stuffing your face while you watch the clock.
What exactly about his post mentioned anything about current population? All he said was he's hopeful that the server can grow and mature to the level that Basilisk is at.
Second, you're one to talk here about lying. One of the developers on Veers with you (Dreadlow) was invited onto the Hydian staff in June 2013 and he was later caught and banned on July 29th 2013 for handing out Admin permissions to Veers buddies so they could all ruin the Hydian server.
IP's of the kids who tried to troll the server
That's real classy and professional.

You do realize the server status PHP file does just that, it displays numbers provided by the remote fsocket connection. Do you understand PHP? I've been doing web development since the 90's which is likely longer then you've been alive.
I'm entertained by the drama over this topic, really. All it shows is the success of Hydian is seen as a threat to you all. Don't blame us because people from your server choose to come play on ours. If you don't like it then you likely need to change something with your server. It's not like we go out of our way to advertise our server at all, it's posted on the SWGEmu forums per the rules and that's it. If other people want to go off and spread the word about Hydian then clearly it's because they have had a positive experience and wish to tell others. Why create a fuss over that?
I'd also like to note that the reason I started Hydian is because of assholes like yourselves. I was sick of the unprofessional attitudes and personal agendas of everyone running the other servers so I said the hell with it and made Hydian with some friends, the rest is history. Poor attitudes contributed to the success of Hydian, just remember that.
And aren't we forgetting something here? Isn't SWGEmu all about the community? You tell us that we shouldn't have a private server because it deters from Core3 development yet you got off to create SWG:ANH? lol, hypocrite much?
I don't see any mention of Core3 in there.
Myself and Hydian fully support the SWGEmu and Core3 development. I have supported it since 2006 when they posted the first video on the internet announcing the project.
