I missed this place though. There were good people here. It was due to lack of traffic. There are already how-to guides, a database, people who know the place. This place essentially was at one point the same people teamzx2 was… why start from dead scratch? We’ve got a good start here. That’s just my own personal opinion of course. Take it or leave it. But I missed this place, a lot.
what makes me the most angry is they didn’t back the stuff up… how to you run a site that is SO BIG with such a humongous database and not back that shit up!? Ok i understand purging the “crap” off the boards, but those how to guides have been around since BEFORE cjw was managing the place and even moderating it… it’s been on there for years and years. Now it’s toast. That’s negligent IMO.
You saw what happened to teamzx2, that was due to poor moderation. They didn’t bother to back up the site. That’s like managing a library and watching it burn down and going ‘OOPS, i forgot my insurance. but that’s ok… we’ll get more books, but the people who come here need to write them again.’ it was a lot of information to be lost.
We’ve got good moderation here… the community has gone to crap because of the moderation there, you think it’s going to be ANY different because it starts over from scratch? the moderation hasn’t/won’t change.
remember the site is just a name, it’s the community behind it that counts.
And Chris (zx2ms) WILL go the extra mile for you here. The mods here are amazing.
Well, i don’t have any problem w/ what happened. Yeah, the site we all grew to love (except for some of us i guess) is gone and we have to rebuild, so what. I think it can be better than before though.
As for this site, that would be cool to have a suppliment, but teamzx2 will always be my home and always has been. I’ll stick around here if it’s gonna stay up.
