(02/05 20:07:11) Jeremy: It's very nice here, thank you for allowing us to return
(02/05 20:07:18) lightkeeper: Hi Cate
(02/05 20:07:23) Cate Alexander: We're glad you are all here.
(02/05 20:07:57) Cate Alexander: I've heard some complaints about the lack of forums on the new site? Does anyone here care?
(02/05 20:08:16) Toh'mas: Only in the sense that a lot of good information was archived there, I would hate to lose it
(02/05 20:08:33) Jan Stepmeir: personally I've never used them, but I did scan them every once and awhile
(02/05 20:08:35) Jeremy: It would be nice to see some of what the DRC is thinking.
(02/05 20:08:37) lightkeeper: It would be nice to be able to interact with the DRC on a forum yes
(02/05 20:08:58) J'Hain: I'm not a great fan of forums
(02/05 20:09:20) Cate Alexander: I do want to spread the word that they will not be returning. There seems to be some confusion.
(02/05 20:09:39) Jeremy: Too much upkeep?
(02/05 20:09:47) Toh'mas: noted, we'll pass the word.
(02/05 20:09:50) Cate Alexander: The DRC does have private forums but the public ones have been pulled.
(02/05 20:09:52) lightkeeper: The forums not returning you mean?
(02/05 20:09:56) Cate Alexander: Correct.
(02/05 20:10:01) Jan Stepmeir: probably want us to concentrate on the urulive.com forums
(02/05 20:10:03) lightkeeper: OK :(
(02/05 20:10:13) Toh'mas: In fact, knowing this community, there's probably already a forum post about this ;-)
(02/05 20:10:20) Cate Alexander: I'm sure.
(02/05 20:10:27) Cate Alexander: And two or three responses.
(02/05 20:10:30) Jeremy: It's unfortunate, but it's understandable I suppose
(02/05 20:10:40) Cate Alexander: Thanks for your understanding.
(02/05 20:11:01) Garymuc: I just came in, did I miss something?
(02/05 20:11:25) Cate Alexander: I do have some meetings to get off to but I did want to communicate that in person first.
(02/05 20:11:30) Jeremy: Miss Alexander has asked that we take a look at the new DRC webpage, and realize that the forums therein will not be returning.
(02/05 20:11:38) Jan Stepmeir: well thanks for the update
(02/05 20:11:41) Cate Alexander: Thank you.
(02/05 20:11:44) Garymuc: thx

Aw, phooey. I'm not entirely *surprised* by that decision (in IC or OOC terms) but it would be nice if the old forums were archived somehow... and maybe someone can convince RAWA to bring back the C.O. Meter sticky over here. I miss that sticky!

Catchphrase? Certainly an irritating one :P

So, no new forums. Why, therefore, is there a greyed out 'discussion' tab?

Also, why won't Cate give a reason?

She's certainly made her stance on matters clear...

And why is there still a button for it? :shock:



With the words "private forum", I think I might just have to hack it.




Ok fine. I know nothing about PHPBB exploitation.

Just speculating as to the reason of no forums and it seems obvious to me that the DRC site (www.drcsite.org) should be completely IC and having forums would make that quite difficult. Besides, this and other forums exist already, so an additional one probably wouldn't add much and might even be seen as a detriment.

Missed her again.

Oh, the tab is grayed out now, but with a proper log in code... But you'd have to get that from a ResEng...

I sure wish Cate had addressed this point. This would be the third lost Cyan-related archive of valuable historical information, and worse, it would be the first over which Cyan had complete autonomy, and therefore the loss could easily be avoided. If Cyan instead chooses to throw that information away, I have some serious questions about its commitment to this so-called community. You can't just wish history, good or bad, away.

As I said, if this loss in fact becomes reality - my judgment stands in abeyance until the future is revealed.

Well. Here goes any attempt at repairing my reputation...

Had a good conversation in cavern last night, early this morning rather, about how people take this game... this game mind you... way too seriously...

I understand the removal is probably due to story reasons, and that's fine, but I hope the IC forums come back in some form, maybe on a different site. It feels bad not to have an official IC place and to lose all the previous conversations at the same time just because it's something that Cate would do.

Well, we need a strictly IC forum here then.

Anyway, I would not be surprised if we eventually saw those private forums - I'd bet good money that at some point we'll come across a ResEng's notebook or something that contains a valid username and password, granting us access to a read-only fake "forum" containing some helpful information.
That's entirely speculation on my part, but you heard it here first.

I don't really care about the forums but the C.O. Meter should be available somehow. It was really interesting reading it.

I hope there's some sort of "hacking" like there was with Zandi that'll get us back into the forums. The DRC forums are an excellent resource for finding out little things the DRC is doing. They need to keep this..

It's already been hacked. IC It hasn't already been hacked. OOC, it's already been hacked. There is no BBS on that site, and the log-in thing does absolutely nothing.

Sure, now. I'm betting that once they get to the appropriate point in the story, something will be there.
