I am keeping Lasius neoniger. They are surviving me quite well so far.
What is this Wakka war? does it relate to the rapper?
The Wakka War refers to a thread in the sandbox. It started with Loops117, now called Emperor Loops by members of the Wakka Alliance. It was a thread full of randomness and fun. You can check it out here: http://www.formicult...59-wakka-wakka/
It caught on, and is now the largest thread on the forum, at 22 pages. After the first few pages, T.C. turned against it, and threatened to end the thread. We ignored him and continued to goof around. That is what the thread was for, after all. Over time, T.C. built up a small, yet powerful group of anti-Wakka members, including Martialis, who had once been for the Wakkas. The pro-Wakka side had the advantage of numbers, but the anti-Wakka side had the advantage of 2 forum mods. The thread quickly became a battle ground between the Wakkas, led by Emperor Loops and General Connectimyrmex and the anti-Wakkas, led by T.C.
Then, just a few days ago, the threats of the anti-Wakka came true, and a forum moderator named Dermy locked the thread. This caused mass uproar in the sandbox, and there are now several backup Wakka threads, and threads that have become war grounds. A day or two after Wakka Wakka was locked, Martialis returned to the pro-Wakka side.
And that's about it. We are still fighting back, attempting to get Wakka Wakka unlocked.
