Dear Davy,

(Please don't hurt me. I'm here on a truce.)

What do you mean by "archive the forums"?

I have a raw-dump archive of the forums at http://www.ProjectGraveyard.com/foi/files/FoI-ForumBackup-[10-30-02.exe] , and since then I started making a better one, with a better index, and including member profiles. That is the best I can do to make sure I have a backup for myself.

(You gotta copy-and-paste that link. Sorry, I couldn't make it a link inside the text, because the file name contains square brackets.)

I'm sure Temporal can very easily export the old forum data to XML, and make the old forum data publicly distributable (minus the parts that should not be made public). But that isn't a priority right now, and it may not become one at all. I guess keeping the old forum locked up indefinitely (at http://www.FateOfIo.org/forums/) isn't a problem.

(Speaking of the old forum, I noticed that people can still log in, change their profiles, and new users can still sign up. I think Temporal should disable the sign-up feature, put everyone's password through an encryption function, and make the database read-only on the SQL Server level.)

One thing I believe needs to be done is making a list of old forum threads (by thread ID) that are related to each node of the new forum. [For example, old threads related to fateofio.story.chars.pc.enna node include: 64 (Sad discussion song), 244 (Enna's Theme), 314 (Syne and Enna's Theme). 336 (Enna Details), 339 (Enna Concept Art), etc.] We could then link to them from the corresponding new node, and that way the old conversations would still be easily accessible and nothing would go to waste.

Is that what you were referring to, Davy?

I hate him because daily..I read his posts. I looked up to him. I almost admired him. I followed him in idealistic proposals and I listened to him. I worked hard daily to look through the site for any improvements updates etc. Then he rips it all to pieces...bastard

Alex, the fact that your response to that was a succinct two words is honestly encouraging; thanks for keeping the noise down.

Now, ::cough::, Davy... I can see your reasoning. I don't really agree with it, but I also don't go around forcing people to feel certain ways about other people. What I will enforce is proper conduct within the project; just because we aren't professionals doesn't mean we can't act professional towards each other. This doesn't mean liking everyone, this means dealing with it on your own terms, not here on mine.

I sadly have a sense that I've said something very similar to this before, and I wish that people would be able to acknowledge differences, have a laugh, and move on. Again, that isn't my choice to make.

I guess the bottom line is that if you must have your grudge, it won't do anyone any good here so don't bring it when you come.

I can see why this guy's Project Manager =) Maybe his nickname should be "The Peacemaker". I appreciate what you said Dev. I've wanted to say it several times (if I haven't before, which I thought I did...maybe I'm wrong), but I knew that, especially since I'm always ignored, nobody would really pay attention, and my word isn't final anyway.

But that is one of the things I really think are most important for this project. We're here to fufill a dream, and HAVE FUN! Do you think the rest of us can have fun when someone is arguing or dissing somebody else? Are YOU guys (the ones arguing) having fun doing so?

Mystik out ;)

FoI has brought me nothing but wasted thousands of hours of toil, loss of faith in life, and self-mutilation. I can't seem to overcome my pathology. Suicide is likely. I am overwhelmed with desire to make someone else feel my pain.

wtf? Dude if that's true then I suggest you see a psychologist. Seriously, I did, and it has helped me realize that I am my own worst enemy. I'm still working on fixing that. If you really can't pull yourself away then you might want to consider psychotherapy. It does work. Don't tell me you're joking because no matter how exagerated that may have been I have read enough to gather my own thoughts on this. "Needless pain is masichistic" ~ Viktor Frankl. So either you're neurotic and could really benefit from some therapy or you like pain. Take your pick.

You've done alot of good for this project, but your underlying neurotic tendencies have brought you down. I've spelled it out before there is no need to do it again. Really Alex, there is no reason to toture yourself over anything. (words from one who did just that for many many years. I'm still not completely healed.)

I want this project to suceed so I'm going to leave Phant on a mutual truce. If he steps out of line with intent to 'piss' me or anybody else off here, rest assured I'm the one who you can garantee to pipe up :@
