FYI someone broke the avatar system again. I literally can only change it to my Gravatar.

I'm aware of the problem. I'll try to get it fixed today.

Huh, so I guess this was why the site was down for awhile yesterday?

 

Cool, I have one question though: do warnings from mods that are not mods anymore still apply? Because I've still got one from friggin' Ender. No offense there buddy.

New admin has already been decided, should be announced here soon. 

 

Highly unlikely we'll add more staff, things will remain pretty much as normal with the intent to ramp up things for AC:I, provided people are receptive to the game....this could be a pretty positive thing here.

I usually tell fast-food servers to keep it, so I don't have to deal with it.

And how many times, when you logged onto ACS and saw the site down, did you think just that?

 

Speaking of which, is there any hope that the change of servers might stop the site from randomly breaking so often?

Yes. I still have the two warnings Zaku issued for thrashing his girlfriend in an argument/because jokes aren't allowed if they're mean to girls (never mind the fact that said joke was also drippingwith self-parody).

An interesting question, indeed.

 

Now, I do think this is positive, to have ACS ownership in our hands, and it sure is better than having it shut down or remain in RMN hands. But forgive me if I'm left wondering how much of it is actually our own and not, you know, private property when shit gets down to it.

 

The seven of us paid cash, therefore it is the private property of those of us in the group.   We must pay the bills, keep it maintained, fix any issues that would hinder it's ability to perform it's purpose.  But most importantly, it's our job to keep ACS what it has become.  The largest fanbase for the series on the Internet. 

 

In regards to Electrosphere, I am of the understanding we all agreed to relenquished any control/ownership of it even though it was included.  Simply put, we gave it back to them.   That is correct Sinner/Zaku/Panda in regards to Electrosphere?

That's right!

 

The electrosphere.info domain name and database was included with the purchase.

 

LH had given ES the database when RMN took it down, and the ES guys are in the process of recovering the data. A few days ago, we gave them the domain name.

Err, yes, that much is obvious, but my question was not quite as literal. The idea of a fan community owned by the fans themselves is appealing, not to mention that's how it should always be. And I do like to see that happen with ACS. But-

 

Argh, dammit. I try, I swear I try, but every single time I try to approach an important issue with subtlety I either get misunderstood (intentionally or not) or just flat out ignored. So I'll stop beating around the bush.

 

I maintain this is positive, but the fact is that certain members now own a stake in ACS. I don't need to tell you things get complicated when there's money involved. This creates potential for first and second rate members, and to make the staff team even more rooted, static and distanced from the community itself than it already is.

 

It's gonna take some effort and time to prove otherwise.

Again, we bought this site solely to keep the community alive. There are no changes planned, other than Zaku stepping down as admin.
