I honestly wouldn't put it beyond Will to read forums about his game.  As far as I know, gaming steve has the largest/most active forum about Spore - Will's read other forums/yahoo groups before (about Sims) and even replied to them.  Probably not likely, but its not so impossible to imagine, I think.

My guess is he's balancing and fixing glitches.  Procedural math can produce some pretty wierd stuff.... so I bet there's going to be a ton of "special cases" that prevent people from making creatures that are supernaturally powerful or advanced at some aspect or another .  But if he's reading the boards, he should get back to work so he can present us all with his masterpiece sooner!

It looks like it's still in the early stages (haven't seen any mention on E3...). If it is, it's probably in early stages of getting the basic game model in (like the evolution system, and getting it just right for good gameplay) and parts added to each stage of the game. Extra features would be added in later.

Spore's been in development behind closed doors for a while.  If you're not aware, the animations are going to be procedural.  So unless he pulled a fast one (unlike Will Wright), those animations demonstrated in the GDC demo are the real thing... procedurally generated, and not a special case.  I know I could be wrong, but Will demoed the entire game (maybe not even the entire game) right there on stage.  One of the kickers is that procedural mathematics is a hit-or-miss thing.... it either works or it doesnt.  So, if Will actually played the game there at GDC, then a majority of the game is done since his whole focus was upon eliminating or reducing the amount of animators and static content generated in games.  It would kinda be hypocritical for Will to use a special case (and remember all of the created content that he showed.... which was all generated in the same way).  I'm not saying you're wrong.... I just hope ya are :).  I still put my bet for Q4 2005 or Q2 2006.

I'm hoping he dumps this evolution BS as we know god created everything. He should just turn the game into an FPS.

I remember Gaming Steve saying back in March that he'd had some some ip tracking and someone from EA might have been looking at the forums.

Actually, evolution has been proven already. Find me any evidence that the bible is true.

Sorry. I'm not fighting, just stating that evolution has been proven. That's why we teach is in schools.

Yeah, but you can't disprove creation using science. Read Descartes' Meditations and it's all clear.

But that belongs on the religion forums; about Will Wright.

I bet he's having a blast playing Spore right now, and we aren't.
