The initial post of this topic says that nothing is going to change, but I've just noticed the new appearance of the forum.
However, it still sucks.
I prefer simple, yet powerful forums, with smart scripts and the damn SPOILER tag.
p.s.: I don't care where the server will be hosted and I don't even care who owns it, since anyways there would be the same bunch of moderators, who currently do nothing useful and refuse to do useful things or delegate some things to the ones who request it (I wanted to volunteer to clean forums a bit from off topic and useless messages in old topics that could be used as very awesome manuals for different stuff, but none of the bigvent/chalamius/talisman/tlm ever replied to it, only tidbit replied that it's not needed and I'd better just copy that info into structured manuals, which I didn't find much comfortable, as I'm not owning the authorship of posted scripts and tutorials and I wanted to keep the ownership so that new users could ask their initial authors, not me).

Doubling the threads will result in forum becoming overgarbaged, which also makes searching hard and uneffective.
If the author of some script passed away - moderators should transfer the ownership over that thread to the volunteers willing to maintain that thread, but to keep a thread clean - they need some extra permissions.

Oh, i see poly censored this thread.
Great poly, that's how real leaders should act!

Other opinions are worthless, right? ;)

As far I can see, the goal of this thread is reached and there is no need to continue kicking a dead horse.

 

Therefore it's [closed] now.
