@Tulac: I did mean mostly the crew, and any one else who was upset about Kosta's decision regarding commercial-turned-freeware games. Thanks for clarifying

@Anubis: There was a rather large AR attack several posts before mine.

And I'm really not sure that is appropriate for a public discussion, which is why I chose not to address it.

Anubus how is that trolling exactly? To me it looks like what happened is Tai is explaining her view point on the situation, I seriously don't see how it's attacking.

Productive in the sense of working hard for AB and AR perhaps? :whistle:

And seriously it's just a viewpoint, what are you the unhappy police? It's an opinion, get over it.

And yeah pm if you want to learn more about the situation, this isn't the place to get involved with personal issues.

Seba,
I kind dislike these 'personal' issues being discussed via PM. Somehow it's not right and makes site look nice, while everything might be rotten. (is that correct word) However, I would like to hear from you what you know about this, and what your opinion is.

Tulac, if I know how to read woman's mind, I would be making some real money now. LOL

DeathDude,
long time not seen! What a coincidence you posted today! Welcome back!

1) Kon-Tiki was obviously quite active on AR and even became an admin (I never visited much, so I wouldn't really know, but he was absent here). He's not an admin anymore and he has some bad words to say about the AR crew (as you could have read for yourself). He's also more active here, helping with updating.

2) My opinion is probably irrelevant, but here it is. Tiki seems to me (never met him in person) like a calm and reasonable person. If he claims something was wrong, there had to be something. There is no smoke without at least a little fire. Still the matter seems personal and it doesn't involve me directly, so I won't get involved. If there was a popularity poll (like there were in the old days) I'd choose Tiki over Tom, but that's beside the point.

3) Talking through PMs... No, I haven't been a fan of that either, but problems like this really don't need to include the whole forum (with every n00b looking on and thinking he found a new WW3 site and giving stupid coments).

Why are we having such a discussion in the first place? The reason why I like it here (both of the sites) is because of the professionalism of the crew, their ability to make good decision. Looking at threads like those make me raise a few questions about if it's still the case.

There is no need to have a flame war or a war at all. There is not even a need to talk about it. Thread should be closed right away in fact, since the question been answered months ago and even if we talk about it it's not going to change.

People simply need to understand what is going on, then decide themselves if they like AB or AR, or both. I myself always will prefer AB, because that's what I'm here for: old DOS games. I could not care much for freewares, and I'm sure that the AR crew noticed that easily. Furthermore, games on AR are really centered on Adventure games, the genre I like the less in all kind of gaming counfounded. However, this doesn't stop me from visiting the AR board every few days, especially the ADOM thread which is one of the biggest and most usefull ADOM thread ever created.

Now that's an attitude I never quite understood.

Saying it's like THIS is easy, but sometimes changes would bring HUGE imporvements!!! And talking brings changes... so...

Ok....ummm...now I'm gonna look like an idiot ><
I post at bolth, and I don't really think merging bolth would be a good idea...even though they are sort of the same, they're bolth really different, and like Tai said, different paced.
EX: AB has like 4 or 5 active topics, in just 3xBlah alone, at AR on average there are more like 2...but they are 4 or 5 pages long, because people tend to focus on them.
I don't really think theres much hostility between the two, there may be a little everynow and then, and then a good ammount when topic such as this (not pointing any fingers just using it as in example) come along. Personally I think its rather silly to get all worked up and say the sites should be merged and we each hate each other just because of what happened to Tiki (dunno what, and to be honest I don't really care, not tryin to be mean to Tiki or anything, hes a nice guy, but this whole topic has pretty much descended into what happened, whatever it may be).

No, that would be an extremely bad idea!

AR has a completely different feel to it (as you said). Some prefer that, some prefer AB (for me, AB forum is still not active enough). So putting both together would really be like locking grown up relatives together for good. They may like eachother (or hate eachother), but when they feel like it, they'll visit one another. Have to send all the time together would certainly make them all go GA-GA.

Now I've given a look to the AR forum... it seems a parallel reality, with same people... I've felt a strange effect...

Anyway, our art section is better! (obviously because there is me )
