A new forum!

I think things need to be considered.

For example, since this is a private affair (ie TTD and whoever else paying for the bandwidth) is it such a good idea to have a DaoC forum? [I don't mind em myself, but I imagine the bills could get big - unless youre hosting yourself or sommat?]

Also, what about people that were banned on Barrysworld? What happens to them? Banned on joining or what?

I think we need a new JOTD thread! Also a desktop thread!

And a new set of high post count titles!

Thats all I can think of for now....
Discuss.

I don't mind some of you ;) but there are a few important problems that even became apparent on the BW server, as soon as a patch came out or the DAoC servers went down the currently active users shot up by some 500.

PS Which I would like to add even bought that server too its knees on more than one occasion :(

Aye, t'is a serious issue. Am I right that Barrysworld inherited the DOAC forums from someone else before?

This thread makes me sad. Why would you who I can only see as a member worry about things that doesn't even affect you.

People cares sometimes too much for their own good. (I think it's stressrelated or a very boring life)

But on the bright side, since this forum won't be governed by the exact same GAME.NET CoC (IIRC) then prehaps there won't be so much need to bait the mods.

To quote Uncle Ted:

"This time it will be different. This time it will be volunteers and donations only, no suits, no commercialism, no ludicrous expectations, just a home for a community if it wants one.
You wont be marketed with stuff, we have nothing to sell, we're just a group of gamers now running this purely as a hobby, just like the good old days. We may ask for help sometimes, but it will as gamer to gamer."

What I'm trying to say is, if you know you shouldn't be doing something you'll do it. It's human nature, we all set out to defy others. A mod tells you not to bait mods, what do you do? You post a great big pic of a bucket of bait and get yourself banned :D

Now it's a different forum, different rules, same old community but with an extra sense of respect I think, for the guys who still want to carry on this community.

I don't like the layout. I don't like the way I've lost my custom title. I don't like most of the other stuff.

But I might stick around for a little while anyways...
