Topic: is it a bug? slithin all knowingness

hey

before i post this in the bugs forums, i'd like to establish if this is a bug.

when someone i haven't discovered attacks the alliance i get, eg,

Blaaadidaa of Blahblahblah (1:666)
       Thingydong of Donkeyshlong (?:???) is attacking with 100,000 ships ETA: 4

however slithins seem to be able to see those question marked coordinates without scanning. is this correct?

also when a player attacks me i can see their coordinates in the incoming bit of the control centre, is this as it should be, or should i have to wait until he lands, which is how i am sure it used to be.

Re: is it a bug? slithin all knowingness

No it is not a bug, this is how it has worked for some time.  That is exactly how it works, anyone looking on their CIC will not be able to know the coords of who is attacking if that person has not already been charted in the universe.  Slithins are the only race who will automatically see the coords of who is attacking regardless if they have been charted in the universe or not.
And the person who is being attacked automatically registers the coordinates of the person attacking, but however they are still seen as uncharted on the universe page.  That is as it should be, there is no bug, it may have just changed from how it used to be.  It was like this for at least the last 2 rounds though.
