I was going to ask if Taleworlds is going to continue the practise of not allowing mods based on copyrighted material to have their own sub-board, but I guess that's not a problem anymore. Pity that they were removed completely though.
The mod team I'm on just released a new dev diary, and it just so happens to be my specific team's diary, Japan. Heads up though, the Google doc was over 50 pages long, so there's a lot to read there.
I can't speak about being mature, but I did go to open university. The only reason though was that I didn't get into regular university at first, had to finish my bachelors degree studies in history at open university first.
I'm not so sure if completing random bits and pieces here and there is...
