Hi Tony, thanks for the reply.
First off, your reply seems a bit defensive, and that was not my intention. I tried to make a positive point, and I hope if you reread my post, you will see that.
With that said, I don't fully agree with you , so allow me to nitpick a bit.
Yeah, I didn't say that. Train's gonna choo-choo, to paraphrase a popular saying. Clearly those comments are not going to remove themselves.
People also raise hell when they start political discussions and you (correctly, I think) remove them. Keep this point in mind, I may come back to it later.
Eh yes. That was sort of a comment in the vein of "water is wet". I also agree with your reasons; I disagree that it was a red herring, it was a simple "old man yelling at the sky" comment (and I don't mind you removed it, fair game).
This was sort of my point. I think this is a good thing. Yay, we agree
First of all, I recognise there is a limited number of mods, and the ideal modding is limited modding. If you guys feel that this is the kind of questions that get out of hand, then those are the questions you don't allow, period. No discussion.
This forum is one of the few places where even with high volumes of traffic people generally don't have to feel threatened. We all know the places where the signal-to-insult ratio is way out of hand, and I generally don't see that happening here, so good job.
Whoah, wait. What I said originally was not a veiled complaint or insult against the mods. It was simply stating a fact that (for exactly the reasons you mention), peak-season readibility << off-season value. That's just how it is, regardless of whether you have 2 or 200 or 2000 mods. Also, but in a completely unrelated point (almost completely unrelated) I know your resources were stretched, I have no problem with how you're doing it, the new guys are doing a good job too, so please don't get defensive.
What I was trying to do in this post here then was not the typical complaint of "this mod suxxz" or "rotoforums are crap" or "in my time when I was young" or anything like that, but rather to take FFCs point, and start a friendly discussion. I'm also not advocating any radical changes. I was just trying to bring up what I thought was a good point; something you guys could discuss in the off-season, to see if that can improve a pretty darn good forum even more. Ignore it for now, and come back to it when you have time to breath again.
I don't even pretend to have a ready-made solution, it was just a discussion point. But that point was that if I have to choose between "choo choo" and AC forum questions, then I choose the latter (which is why I try to spend a lot of time there when I have the chance).
Thanks for replying, thanks for reading, and keep up the good work.
