Oh cool thanks  :gnehe:
Posted on 19 August 2010 à 16h19

Now that I am upgrading I was just looking for all the new mods for RC2 and I started thinking. My forum actually is made up of three parts and without one of these three it would be nothing.

SMF itself
PortaMx
Aeva Media

A few weeks back I was seriously thinking of moving over to VB. It had the core forum software and a portal. However the show stopper came when I looked closer and there just was nothing close to Aeva Media  :sifflote:

psst, I'd be using RC3 as there are known vulnerabilities in RC2, and most mods work well between the two...

To think that they never even bothered to contact me and ask me to port it! ;)

Arantor, did you get my PM? OK you got it, but did you read it? :p

I'll let you read his comments on the subject for yourself - http://arantor.org/index.php?topic=112.msg1705#msg1705
Impressive topic.
He's even more of a *bleep* than I first thought.
(Replace *bleep* with whatever you want... "Genius" if you'd like.)

Nao, I did, yes, been away from the computer a bit today so not had time to write anything yet - and I'm contemplating exactly how to reply, since there's some big decisions in there, really.


But yeah, vbgamer demonstrates just how full of double standards things are over there, which is why I'm doing my own thing on arantormods.com, and debated the pros and cons of publishing my new mods on sm.org, even the ones that don't have competition; I figured I don't want to subject my work to their whimsy any longer.

(Genius is about the one word that, funnily enough, didn't occur to me.)

Yeah... Your fault! :mdr:
You went to talk to me about this :P
I'm the one who got to spent the week pondering over this ;)
(At least, it's an extra choice for me when comes the time to decide what I'll be doing in the future.)

Similar thoughts here.
Even in terms of sales, I haven't sold a single copy of AeMe2 this week, even though the file is still over there. If I can't post and 'put some animation' into the community over there, there's no point in having files hosted there at all.
(Again, I don't care the number of copies I sell overall. The worst it could do is push AeMe to second place in my priority list. Certainly not to the bottom of it.)

It'll probably occur to vbgamer, to each their own!

Can someone tell Eleglin about the reasons why I banned Kindred, as explained here?
Just post the URL to this topic, over to that topic:

Thanks. I don't like one-way conversations.

To quote Kindred's response...

Oh, look... I can't read that, because I'm banned....  meh.  Nao explained the ban to me... admitted it was retaliatory and immature but said "so what" and then went on another rant.
As much as I like and support Nao's coding skills, he has less than zero interpersonal skills. :(   Which is kinda the reason he got a ban.
They still don't get it, do they? It's a two way street and you get what you give.

So true. And you don't get to keep what you kill, whatever Riddick has to say about it.

Hello Nao, this is xrunner form SMF forums. I use your footnotes mod and you have helped me several times with several issues about it. I'd like to say you have always been very helpful and quick to fix the issues I have reported. I just found out you were banned from SMF forums and this makes me sad.

I wanted to register here and say thanks again for your support in the past.

Thank you, this is very kind of you. I do remember you, yes. Footnotes has a special place in my heart -- it's a mod I'm proud of (in technical terms), it's the first stand-alone mod I created from scratch, and it's so obscure that I've never had a problem with supporting it. :)

Thanks. This isn't really the place to discuss AeMe, though.

Although this topic should soon be closed or something. It would seem that we have reached an understanding with the SMF team that would be of benefit to all of us. (We = Arantor and I.)

Yeah, still a few things to work out yet, but there is progress in a direction that is mutually beneficial to all.
