Metanet Forums

Post by Nahoj on Tue Jan 20, 2015 3:28 pm

Okay, so I noticed that alot of you veteran N players (who prefer the official Metanet forums). Are trying to get everyone on this forum to move to that one. I feel like some of you think it's Sam and my fault that the communities split. I would like to make clear to you that that is absolutely not the case and would like to help out.

My idea is to lock every single thread on this forum and put a big "We moved, click here" sign in the header, so that everyone who does use this forum will go to forum.droni.es instead.
Which basically means this forum will be shut down.

What do you guys think?

Eventually we need just 1 forum, 2 forums for one subject is totally unnecessary

Heh, i'll be missing the forums, but you are right, why not connect both? That's a great idea imo.

And speaking of the community split...
I may sound like a weirdo, and btw. i don't want to offend anyone or something, but in my opinion, the split was mainly caused by...metanet. They decided to hmm..., seperate 1.4 and 2.0. Nv2.0 is now very easy to get etc., people go for it, because it's the newest version, so it seems to be the best.
Lots of 1.4 people i saw saying that 2.0 is nothing interesting at all - of course, it was quite a big step, but they decided to stay in 1.4 and eventually sometimes "visit" 2.0.
I feel like 2.0 and 1.4 are two different rosters. And - what may sound odd - 1.4 is higher than 2.0. For me 1.4 will always mean a place where all the experienced and wise people "live" and 2.0 - something like kindergarten. Well equipped, but you meet *the new guys* at every step. OK, i must end here, because i forgot what i should say next :p

Well, this is kind of silly. Firstly, Metanet did not create the Nv2 forums or the Nv2 chat. The Nv2 community itself did. Metanet didn't think, "oh, you know what? Nv2 and N1.4 are both Metanet-created games, but, fuck it, let's divide the communities." The who division and split was the Nv2 community itself. Metanet did not try to separate* the two communities at all.

I like this idea. I think I mentioned the exact same thing to THUNDER or maybe shomman, but they said that couldn't happen. I'm sick of the two forums anyway, and I prefer forum.droni.es over this one.

The moderators did a really job here (well the usual -they were active and did stuff). I really like the 'Top posters this week' idea. Btw I think the 'Would u buy n++?' thing should not be on metanetforums cause it might 'disappoint' Mare and Raigan if they see it. The trouble with making something or being a part of it is that you can get attached and or hurt if it doesn't work well. You guys incl Btonios did well, but I guess I'm up for this being scrapped..
    I'm sure we can put a big fat link to all the n chats on the old forums like on here.

Now that you mention it, checking up on two forums at the same time, switching tabs, etc. seems kinda pointless and makes things more complicated... So come to think of it, it really is pointless to have two forums on the same general game...

I was talking about them seperating games, not communities.

Edit: OK, i tangled everything. I meant that making v1.4 and v2.0 seperate games made v2.0 "grow" its own community. I guess no one understands that anyways...

This is stupid. Johan, you are barely a presence in the community now and you want to close down the whole forum? Thats retarded, if any1 is to call the shots and speak on behalf of the players, then it should be thunder. Dont delete this forum, just keep it, I like it, the other 1 is foreign, and intimidating. Plus I come here to get to the chat.

This sounds like a good idea to me. THUNDER should not call the shots. Johan is not calling the shots necessarily, which is why he is asking for opinions on his idea.
You could leave a link to the chat and a link to the Metanet Forums and lock everything else. That would solve coop's minute problem of visiting the forums to click on the chat button

Ok, so I like this whole moving idea, but it will be harder for the series i will be running hopefully more, but do you have an idea as what i would do with the series as a whole? I am so like mixed feeling at this xD I dont know what to say but it may hopefully pay off.

I may add another season after this week.

Look guys, nothing will be deleted. Any thread that is still active can be copied to the other forum and the non-active ones are still readable here.

And Cooper, I check this forum everyday so I know what's going on. And I made this thread because the only people who are able to make such a change on here are Sam and I.
