The "new forum" drama

Post  NoonEe on Tue Dec 27, 2011 12:39 pm

Hey there.
I now spent some time and posted a bit on the new forum, more than anyone else to be exact, and I think I might throw my opinion in this discussion.

First of all, I dont think we ever needed a new forum in the first place. Imo we made us quite a home here, this one is simple, clean and quite fast. Still, somehow no one complained when lala announced that we were looking for someone to set up a new homepage.

CloudWolf responded, and offered us a subforum on their website, which has a quite large community and hosts projects such as Mineralz evolution. This could only mean the growth in our community we all want... at least most of us. Lala asked us to post something there and try it out... what no one did, including me.

Some could interpret this as "we dont want to move, its cool here" but lala saw this as us beeing too lazy to try out something new, what was better in his view. And then there was another "discussion" about support and stuff, and the new homepage was brought up again. Seeing how serious lala was about this, some started to post over there and try out stuff. I didnt really care which forum becomes offical, since every forum is ok once you get used to it. Having others thinking in the same way lead to the redirection of cityoftempest.net to the udmod subforum. Now even the last ppl who didnt sign up, we're kinda forced to do so. (yes, forced). Ofc complaining about it, because they're ads everywhere, and its hard to navigate and stuff.

So much for that. Now, I think that we're not done discussing if we move or not. You cant just say "no one supports me, so I do what I want". You cant just surrender when you get no response for 1 post. You know how long I've been messaging around for this clanleague-everyone-liked-and-then-never-sent-any-application-whatsoever?

But I have to say you made yourself an attention in another way (with the redicrection ofc). Now you have what you want, everyone is checking out the new forum because they have to. And now we can start the discussion, everyone is informed about the alternatives.


tl;dr:
-asking 1-2 times and then saying you have no support is not right
-ofc the community is lazy
-you made yourself attention by redirect ct.net to the udmod thingy, and now we can start to discuss the switch

We've moved to the other forum get over it or don't post there. There is less posts because there is no random posts that are just plain stupid. Also because there hasn't been a patch in a long time no one's been talking about balance issues since they've all been established. It is an indisputable fact at this point that Fang Dong Feng with the current version is incredibly OP. Therefore no one is arguing about it(if they ever were) and so there are no balance posts about it. The only balance post on the other forum right now is whether or not Janne should be able to health pot while in bubble.
