Why moving?
« on: March 31, 2004, 09:35:56 PM »
Sooo why are the FWP mods moving to another place? I haven't seen any explanations here... ??? Unless I have missed something.

P.S. I hope this isn't an April fool's joke. ;)

Yes, I see you're an expert on the inner workings of the backroom deals and politics of modders.

Ahem! Whatever happened at FWP is not my bussiness nor is it your (the mod players, not the modders) bussniness.
I for one am glad for the mods and regardless of what happened I will still host mods made at FWP/FWS/IE Modders and now the Pocket Plane Group.

I doubt you know what happened at FWP (I don't know either) so don't make assumptions. And you know what? Even though I'm curious about the reason, I don't want to know it. I'm here to enjoy the mods made by Ghrey, Jason, BevH and many others.

Yeah i've signed up too, although i'm pretty disappointed by the whole situation.....

But nevermind, it was certainly a pretty big shock when i had a look at FWP, only to find all my favourite mods missing! :o

Then, i realised what had happened and calmed down considerably.  ;D

When I first heard about this, the mods hadn't been moved yet, so I was confused - which isn't hard to do.  And I agree with Shodan - it's really not any of our business as to why things happened.  I'm sure the truth will come out if we, the general forum population, are to know about it.  And there is a saying - "the truth is a 3-edged sword:  your side, my side, and the real story."  Besides, another forum for BG mods - can that be bad?

Honestly it makes me a bit sad to see this change.

More sites is bad in the sense that it makes it harder to keep up with the mods.  With the exeption of a few months I took off last winter I've been paying attention to the modding scene for a while now ... yet I completely missed Black Sheep mods and one or two others until quite recently.  Imagine the confusion of a newcomer?

Yes, I was a big fan of what I called the "Commodore Blue" theme on FWP as well. SMF supports multiple, user-selectable themes, we'll probably get fancy and add some more. Later.

While I was never keen on the blue, definately wasn't something I saw everywhere else.  Kinda grew on me.
