At post 20, tough luck bro. You wanna be a developer? Oh, don't complain about keeping up with your work and your customers. Hell, if you don't like it so much, don't update that forum with your new games. Sorry, but that is the stupidest reason I ever heard. It sounds like a lazy developer who clearly isn't a people person and feels as though everyone needs to follow all of your demands. Oh shit, I just bashed the great and powerful Liam! I bet I'm gonna get the heat from everyone now. Lol.
Ehh, Liam never said he didn't like the new forum, he said he didn't like the idea of having to post to multiple places especially before we've fixed the issues that plague this one. A lazy developer who expects people to follow all of his demands? Where was Liam demanding anything or acting like he expected us to follow those demands for whatever reason? If you can't say something that is helpful or constructive, you should leave it alone. If this was your way of trying to stir up some sort of reaction, , then I hope mine entertained you.
As to the idea of another forum, While I will probably join your forum and have a look 'round and add it to the list of sites I check for interesting things, I see nothing that makes it more or less attractive to me. The most we have is this:
providing the community a new outlet with straightforward policies and guidelines where transparency will be the main concern...
What really raises flags for me is the timing. You picked a very delicate time to make this forum known, and what is more you are citing difficulties that plague this very forum while in no way specifying how you will avoid these on your own forum. The transparency and clear policy issues you describe are being intensely deliberated by the moderators here, and yet a consensus seems long in coming. You may choose to disagree with how they're doing things and run your forum your own way of course. I'm really interested to see how you'll handle it differently. But if you are indeed only seeking to create a new outlet, then best leave this forum's problems out of it. as of right now, I have to question your motives and the ways you intend to make your forums an attractive alternative.
Your questions in post 1 are vague to me also. I at first viewed your questions as a moderator applicant survey, but I do see that it could be taken in a bunch of ways so I really don't know what you're looking for.
I am not trying to discourage you at all, I'll be glad to check out your new forum when it is up. I personally don't mind having multiple forums for a similar purpose. But at present I really don't know what to expect on yours. I half expect a lot of people here to migrate to your new forum and establish much the same dynamic as here, but that's only my initial assumption and I hope to be proven wrong. Whatever happens, I wish you the best of luck in creating a place that fulfills your vision, and that it will stay alive and well for a very long time!
