Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
This is a bit of a complex situation, so, bear with me as I try to explain it...
I'm from Canada. Born and raised here, been a citizen since the moment I came into existence. My immediate family are all Canadian citizens, including my father, who was actually born overseas. In Scotland, actually, during the Second World War. His mother, my grandmother, married a Canadian soldier, and then emigrated with him to Canada after the War - she's what you call a "war-bride."
My father should almost absolutely be eligible for British citizenship and a British passport, but he has never applied for the latter, and he hasn't been back to Britain to exercise the rights of the former since he arrived here as a boy in 1946. If he didn't claim British citizenship, would that affect my eligibility?
This whole thing is complicated by the fact that Canada didn't pass its Citizenship Act until 1947, and the UK has an incredibly complex citizenship system.
