The Quiet Majority says hello

Post#1 » Fri Mar 13, 2020 12:57 pm

Hello everyone,,
Thank you to all the devs that have kept this project alive. So much fun to re-live the OldWorld in MMO format. Their time and effort...without pay...absolutely amazes me.

Not sure what brought me to the forums, as I've personally despised any form of anonymous online discussions for a long time now (1993 or so). After reading the recent week's drama, it only reinforced why I almost always stay away.

It reminds me of a quote from an industry developer that I've always respected.

"That’s why I don’t want to have official forums. Whether it was SOE, Blizzard or us, official or semi-official forums are exactly like I described above for every successful MMORPG that I have played or watched from afar (and that is *most* of them). The unsuccessful ones were even worse. The problem is that most people who read the boards are looking for information and a reasonable number of people want to cause trouble, “grief” the forums or simply get their jollies by saying and doing things that they wouldn’t do in real life. As usual, a small percentage of people make life more difficult for everyone else…” – DKjones.
