Forum renaming

Postby ace123 » Tue May 01, 2007 1:27 am

You may have noticed that the Privateer forum has been renamed so as to be consistent with other VS mods.

I have decided, with some recent moderation conflicts, that this forum should be named so as to encourage discussion about all privateer mods.

I understand that PR 1.2 has been out for long enough that it is no longer the sole focus of discussion. There have been topics lately about a Parallel Universe modification, as well as a new release for Gemini Gold.

I understand that all of these mods are based to an extent on Privateer Remake, and also on Vega Strike, however it is probably in the best interest of forum participants to keep a general focus on the forum.

Another alternative would be to have a general Privateer forum, as well as a specific forum for all Privateer-based mods, however I do not believe strictly separating them is a good idea.

I wrote:Hi Matt,

I want to apologize at this point. I knew that without John (isn't he hellcatv?), PR would probably not exist or look different. I also thought that the GG sticky was out of place, but I think different now.

It was me unstickying the thread, I thought I was being appointed by you or zaydana for unstickying. I later learnt that Shissui recommended me. Unstickying was a mistake. Feel free to take away my moderator status again if you want to do so.

I'll also send this pm to John. John, please accept my apologies.

Regards,

Thilo

I see the conflict solved at this point and want to apologize again. I suddenly was moderator, so I decided to do something for I thought the reason why I was appointed was unstickying. I now see that it is different and trust me, I've learned from that.

The renaming is just fine for me -- I'm also glad that PU catches some attention. We had discussions about having a separate forum, but the website won the race. I think I can speak for most PU members that we currently don't want a forum on our own - at least if you still allow us to stay here 8)

Seems like there's really nothing wrong here unless I've missed something >.<

But yea, renaming the forum sounds like a good idea. Just naming it to something like WingCommander: Privateer or something blunt like that sould work. (maybe just plain Privateer?)

This was also my fault, I gave Dilloh moderator status without giving him my standard moderator speech, and put him on the spot not knowing quite what to do. For that I need to apologies to Dilloh and John. I think now that everything has settled down now, that Dilloh will be a great asset to the administration of the site.

So congratulations Dilloh on your new status.
I know you believe you understand what you think I said.
But I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
