It's been a month since Salute, when Duff said he'd been talking to Doc. And in that month there's not been a word or sign of things changing. So, assuming something is said today then the best it would be is a monthly update. But nothing's been said at all. If you'd made updates then I'd understand your exasperation. Is it unreasonable to expect some news, even just the slightest titbit?
Don't get me wrong, I actually applaud the idea of just getting on with things in the background without trumpetting everything. But is that what's happening?
Of course, no one has to give a weekly update, but given all that's been said, and done (a new forum set up which is sucking the life out of this one) I would have thought that some news would have seemed appropriate. Even if it's a 'no news' update. I think all members would like to know is that something is happening, and if nothing is happening, why not. If nothing is happening because no one gives a fuck then at least say. If things are happening, but slowly then say. Just hearing something would keep people happy and may mean that people will continue to support the forum rather than going elsewhere. Is that not obvious?
Oh well.

Help us Obi Dags - you're our only hope...


You just copied that from the Defiance Kickstarter Comments page didn't you? (and with the same likelihood of action!)

Good fucking lord, you've become such a needy bitch with a ridiculous sense of entitlement.

The spam posts are gone, but on a dare to make a forum there's now another place and that's diluted the posting here. That's worse than the spam. It's like a few folks have decided to now forum cosplay what's been happening in Ukraine.

I hope you all die,














when it's your natural time of course.
It is. And it is not. When it is, and when it is not, is the question or the answer, or both or neither.

Was there a picture of Yosemite Sam missing from that post? :roll:

Yosemite Sam moved to the other forum. Apparently Goldie was ruining his reputation here :(

Is it worth me asking again?
No? No.
Too late now anyway.
