Requesting that this discussion be terminated, and moved to a more formal and totally invisible complaint system, is a symptom of that very issue. We are discussing things here, and the whole thing has remained entirely civil, so I see no reason to squash the thread. If you're afraid that Mindi and Annette will simply pay too much attention to this thread, maybe that is so. They are tremendously patient with us, and I don't think there is enough appreciation that we can possibly lavish on them for not dropping PMs at us that say "quitcher*****in". :P


Regarding suggestions that game specific discussion be taken off site - I'm not sure I understand how this is in any way optimal for a PBEM game. IRC would be the medium of choice if we were playing for extended periods all together. Otherwise, due to the nature of the gameplay, and the nature of all of the scheming and plotting that is involved in a game of Dominions that takes 2-3 months to play through, the forum PM system is the ideal format - especially now with the ability to forward PMs to others.

The Shrapnel forums have always been the needle in the haystack. Suggesting that we go set up a special email to use only with Dominions, that we will have to manage separately for privacy and continuity concerns - just because the PM limits are similar to those used by other successful forums - is just plain ludicrous.

I think most people posting in this thread are displaying their ability to be rational and agreeable. We are not railing against change. We are feeling somewhat deprived and oppressed. The line between change and removal is not fine, nor is it mutable. Useful, appreciated, and integral portions of this forum no longer exist. Relating this to inventions and discoveries that universally enhance quality of life - could be construed as misleading at best.


<3
My point here is that it's much easier to manage a list of issues through the PM system (where we can list out individual issues) then in the forum.

So I guess it's this simple. You can discuss things here but the only way we'll add things to the list is via PM.

So if you want to see something addressed, PM Mindi.

I have had Space Empires 4 games that have literally lasted years with much schemeing and plotting and that didn't require the abuse of shrpanel forums PM system. I think you guys are smart enough to work something out.

That hasn't really changed from the "old" boards. I think a few variations were added, but it's pretty much an old feature. I'd post what it blocks, but it won't let me Trust me, it's words no one needs to use here for any reason whatsoever.

One really nice feature is the fact that we can see and manage all of our uploaded files.
I've got some ancient stuff in there that I had completely forgotten about!

Lemme test it. What if I wanted to *****? If I'd be *****ing, would anybody here mind? The filter, at least?

Yeah, now you can all start and try guessing...
