Title: Have we made a decision?
Post by: Torahteen on May 27, 2005, 03:47:02 PM
Well? Have we decided where we are going to migrate to? I like the TBN (That is The Basic Network right?). That sight can be found at http://www.basicnetwork.net. It's a nice site, with a good layout. I just want to try to have a big comunity like this again.

Everyone has moved between the three main forums.  I don't think there's going to be one main place anymore after this.  People are all going to be divded.

Right now it seems TBN (http://www.basicnetwork.net) and FBTK (http://fbtk.net) are both holding many migrators.  I'd just move between those and Bad Logic (http://badlogic.tk) to see posts.  It doesn't seem as if any of the others wildcard listed have really picked up.

Vic opened a forum on the FB site. That seems logical.

I'm hanging around TBN and Pete's QB site. Who knows, this forum may come back yet. Let's not jump to conclusions.

It's up to each one to decide, but i'll only answer questions in the fb.net forums, mainly because more people hanging around the FB site will mean a better rank in sourceforge.net, making FB more known to other people outside the "community".

For those who like qbn look and feel of the forum and it's layout I offer my new forum wich is located here: www.fbforum.tk

I wish you would have done that in the first place. ;)

My vote is TBN - It's already teeming with people, and in hours has what is closing on to 600 posts and 35 members.


Title: Have we made a decision?
Post by: Torahteen on May 27, 2005, 08:24:14 PM
I agree with fox. I would rather we suck it up and go to one forum so we can keep the larger community alive. I beg that everyone agrees, but that's their choice.

Post by: dumbledore on May 28, 2005, 02:40:17 AM
seems most went to tbn, that is everyone except the 5 or 6 people who opened new forums...   :roll:
fbtk was always sort of the underdog, maybe it should stay that way  :P


Title: Have we made a decision?
Post by: Sumo Jo on May 28, 2005, 04:04:50 AM
I don't think any site is the underdog.  Every site just provides there own view on the community and it's everyone's  choice whether they want to go to it or not.

I'd go to Freebasic.net

See you there!


Title: Have we made a decision?
Post by: marzecTM on May 28, 2005, 11:55:33 AM
yes i'd also suggest to go to fb.net for your fb belongings. tbn is nice to but everyone know bad-logic (http://www.bad-logic.com) is the r0x0rz. new meaning of life is 45[/url]

Post by: Jofers on May 28, 2005, 06:10:24 PM
I guess we can stick around here if wildcard is selling the site.

Just hope the new owner's name doesnt' begin with "Mike" and end with "Doise".

Lol, me too.

qb71.com (http://www.qb71.com)... makes you cringe..

Oh, man, you're right, it's even worse now.

I offered to make a better logo & stuff for that site, but he never replied.  :lol:

Post by: Jofers on May 29, 2005, 12:59:11 AM
I've done the same.  I don't think he's planning to keep it up.

Meanwhile Qb*45*.com is just about done recovering...


Title: Have we made a decision?
Post by: Torahteen on May 29, 2005, 01:39:36 PM
Ok, I'm confused. Did wildcard decide to keep the site up?! :???:  :-?


Title: Have we made a decision?
Post by: Jofers on May 29, 2005, 02:14:20 PM
The site will stay up, and be run by a new administor.  In effect, Wildcard is retiring, and I don't blame him.

Any news on the new owner(s) ?


Title: Have we made a decision?
Post by: Jofers on May 29, 2005, 03:43:03 PM
Yes.  The new owner is none other than Sephiroth.  No kidding.


Title: Have we made a decision?
Post by: Z!re on May 29, 2005, 03:56:14 PM
How about Xeko_X?


Title: Have we made a decision?
Post by: Jofers on May 29, 2005, 04:44:12 PM
You know what?  Sure.  That's a great idea.  I'll appoint him right away.

Seph, you're fired.

Post by: Jofers on May 29, 2005, 07:03:39 PM
Nope.  He's fired.  So is Xeko_X.  I hired Rampkorv.

Even if he wasn't horribly lying... he still doesn't get the fact that he was asking an opne source community to donate. (yes i've talked with him recentally)

I don't think it really matters anymore, everyone is either here or freebasic.net primarily now and a few commute between the multiple forums.

Post by: anarky on February 02, 2006, 11:40:10 AM
Hey I don't mean to revive dead posts, but that site was still alive? I can't believe I ever opted to moderate that site. Then when it got hit with like 5000 porn posts from some bot... I should never have deleted them.

I won't be going anywhere. I have something in the pipelines worth showing off when its finished its first beta testing run and is fully functional. Although I don't want to give anyone ideas. But both myself and MystikShadows agree that we think this is just what the entire community needs...

I've been following this forum for years, but forgot about it for a few months. Now, I've come back to check it, and there are very few posts and people talking about "migrating!" What happened? People were talking about moving after the site "closed forever" for a couple of days, but it seemed to recover. What gives?

I take it you forgot your old username/password?

If you think this is bad, check out QBNZ (http://qbnz.com/pages/forum).

It's a new member, DrV. The poor guy probably got tired of checking every single date and just missed this one because his eyes were glazed over. :D
