How many of you feel the forums are alive, dying or dead?

My two cents. Very dead. Lee's spam thread getting closed (and Lee getting banned) is all the proof. This forum officially sucks now. Things need to change. The only people left are the people who have been here all along. We're not getting any new members, nobody cares about ESF any more. Things really, really need to change. We need to create a more fun environment. I'm not saying spam everywhere, but loosen things up. If someone gets out of line or takes things too far, mods can do their jobs. But I see no harm in a little fun now and again.

No spunky, you don't know what you're talking about. We're not mature enough to have a spam thread. Why, people will just spam in it to increase their post counts! Such evil is unthinkable.

Dead. Why?

1) Because you're playing with the goddamn rules. Either say goodbye to all the rules and let people do whatever the **** they want, or enforce them to their fullest extent.

2) Open Beta kinda killed the whole thing. It was a bad idea to begin with, and now that you realized it, you cancelled it? That just doesn't work.

That's all there is to it. Now, back to my self-imposed exile from this ****hole. Bye.

Another Open Beta will be released soonish. Besides, I doubt that the open beta is the reason for the forum being inactive.

I thought you left? If the forum is a **** hole, don't browse it not logged in, which you're clearly doing.

Dan, the Open Beta was never cancelled. A new release is probably coming very soon, it's been a long time. That's not what killed the forums. Also, it's quite clear you lurk here. You can pretend to be gone all you like, but we all know it.

I enjoy playing ESF online with other people, the forums don't matter much to me.

Your negativity is ****ing up my ****.

1) I'm all for happy go lucky fun time. Let's not forget that you're the one who demanded these guys crack down on everyone. They listened apparently, and drafted a new aup. For what purpose? I don't know, but even if it didn't actually affect anyone, the perception is that they went back to being forum nazis, and as I always say, perception is key.

2) The forum was on a downward spiral before the open beta came to light, so that isn't the issue. It was merely a response to another problem.

On a completely personal side note, the forum is a happier, brighter and more cheerful place without you.

I still think this forum should be run the same way the NNK forum is run.

why do you care if they have rules in the forum? the forum still belongs to them they have rules so people can't post g@y porn like jinx did its not like you guys even play the game or contribute to it or anything most of you don't even play the game and when you do and get owned you say "Thats why this game is dying!" is everything you suck at dying?

its like esf is a rockstar and your those people who downloaded there music through limewire but still want there autograph just because your a fan who cares about the open beta anyways they will release it when they want even if they don't release another one thats there choice they don't owe you anything

Forums are dead. Rules seem to be too strict. Hell, I've had some of my topic names get changed because it was "annoying people"
I understand that my topic name was annoying people, but is that a good reason to change the name? No, not really.

The point is, the forums are way too strict. And in my opinion, the forums are dying because of it. The spam thread that Onslaught made earlier today,that shouldn't of been closed. There needs to be a spam thread, but moderated.

haha wow.. that is SAD.



The forums are kind of dead in the development section, apart from that, the Off-topic section seems to be pretty active..

which is very sad.

Yarrrr, this forum sucks anymore... Too many moderator power trips and what not...I felt things were going in the wrong direction when I got my mod powers taken away for messing with onslaughts sig in a playful manor... We used to do fun stuff like that all the time... but a member of the development team being harshly punished for playing with a forum peon? Where is the fun in that?

That's just one personal experience that makes me feel the forum has been going in the wrong direction. I'm sure there are many more, but my attention has been elsewhere:rolleyes:
