You know, while there are a lot of problems with the boards and site, there are also things the admins did absolutely right.  I've heard that posts in here have gotten heated and nasty, so why not have a thread thanking the Admins for the things they did get right.  Also, it's always nice to come and read compliments over time.


So, it's a simple question. What has the Admins gotten right on the site so far.  What kind of things have made you want to come back to the new Startrek.com.


 


For me, I've been loving the interviews with the cast of the various series lately.  Last week they had something from Alexander Siddig and today they posted a very nice interview from Jennifer Lien.  I really liked the Lien interview because we really haven't heard from her since she left Voyager way back when.  I also like the various fansites that have integrated with the site.  The Startrek community is always growing and it's nice to see this site take note of that.

It is great to have a almost daily updated front page. And I like the look of the new site.

A lot of "official" sites worry more about
looking "cool" than actually offering anything
that isn't predictable. There's a lot for any
fan to get into with this site. It's coming along,
don't let the misplaced passion of a few posters
distract you. The course is good.

Wow! I've hardly been here for months and you're STILL obsessing over the fact taht we've caught you THREE TIMES trying to register at Alliance? It's been months since I've posted here regularly and you're STILL accusing me and others of doing what YOU do?

Seriously, I've encountered people who are obsessive compulsives before but I haven't encountered any on the level you have it, with paranoia and a persecution complex thrown in.

If I were a clinical psychologist I could make a career on you!

Is everybody enjoying this, because it seems like a colossal waste of time and energy. We all know who is who in the zoo, seriously why does anyone respond to this goon?

Over the years, Star Trek has inspired people of all races and nationalities to strive toward a future where all of mankind’s ills could be healed, where technology worked for the good of everyone, where the unknown was something to be curious about rather than something to be frightened of.

I haven't been on here either. I fail to see how I'm part of some vast evil conspiracy on a board I don't actually come to very often. It's a bit strange to have someone view you as some mastermind arch-nemesis who they feel plots against them behind the walls of closed boards. I also enjoy being accused of doing bad things that the accuser is actually well known for doing regularly themselves. It like walking into a room and finding someone standing over a body with a bloody knife in their hand and they point at you and shout "murderer!" lol

The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few--or the one.

You people from Alliance and STLogs really don't like being stood up to by anyone or your collective tactics exposed publically.

Nor do you like anyone who refuses to play your game.

 

 

 



You're the report monkey. You're the one who has dual accounts here in violation of the rules. You're the one who hides at NexCal and attacks and obsesses about everyone else.

Classic persecution complex.

They obviously enjoy it, what other motive could there be for encouraging him?

I believe that ignoring him has been tried and it doesn't work.

I don't come back often enough to be seen as encouraging him, but I will, once in a while, take the time to counter false and insane accusations against me and my board. Maybe not to say the individual in question, who has his own little conspiracy world going, but to let others know that these accusations are false and irrational. Now I've done it, however, I will drop it for a while.

There's an old saying about evil thriving when good people do nothing about it. The same applies to stupidity thriving when intelligent people fail to confront it.

I wasn't thinking of you rather the individuals who engage him day after day after day.

There's also an old saying about repeating behaviour: "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result." I see both sides saying and doing the same things each day so either they're all crazy or really, really enjoying it. I'm going with the later... if they were genuinely trying to stop him they'd have changed tact by now.

Well, this thread took a turn for the worst.  Here I am trying to be positive because there's been some stuff about posters being negative and nasty, and this thread seems to have turned Negative and Nasty. That kinda sucks.


 


Since it seems like it won't be closed, I've got to say that the original topic doesn't apply anymore.  I came back to see if anything has been done (It's been a month) and no, the board is still screwed up.  Posts in reverse order, no jump to the last post read option, font too small...  Pretty much the same thing that plauged the board when it launched is still plauging the board now.  It's rediculous and it's why I realy haven't posted here that much.  It's a shame really because I've actually been looking for the startrek.com equivalent boards that work and couldn't find any.  There are some people here I enjoy chatting with, but I can't use these boards.  I'm surprised anyone could because they really are so bad.  It's also not an issue with getting used to them.  I just can't.

See my previous statement below. I've hardly posted or been here for MONTHS since Stalin starteted running the old boards and this "person" is still posting it's BS comments about me and others. So I'm not allowed to respond to it, huh?

If you don't like people responding to the poison this poster spews feel free to avoid reading it.
