Let's not get too excited folks! I, for one, am eager to hear from the new site owners exactly what changes there may be but also, to get a better understanding of who the moderators will be. They are really the ones who make the forums and database work.

Re: Forum & Database Update

Oh, i forgot the reason number 5, maybe the most important:
- the real engine of the forum, the soul, the lifeblood are the members! Each member, from the veteran to the youngest. This site lives thanks to us, and to achieve all the goals from whoever the new owner is, he must obtain the trust and respect of the members.

Re: Forum & Database Update

@ Charter
You should've convinced the previous owner not to sell the site.
I just think some members should give the new owners the benefit of the doubt.
I'm sure they re going to make mistakes during the transition,but that's kind of expected and might even reverse some decisions.
So far so good , as far as I'm concerned then again I'm not as valuable as other members.

Some members just heard new owners, they re already screaming bloody murder.

Maybe you should redirect your anger toward the guy who sold the site and pocketed the money.( not that you should) jmho

My friend, i respect your opinion and i agree with you when you say that we must wait and see what happens. I also agree with you with the point that not all the changes are in negative (this is also the idea of many other members). I'm not angry, i'm embittered and worried that many efforts done over the years will be lost. I have doubts just because many important members of this site decided to adandon. If you have a soccer team with Totti, Ronaldo, Platini, Maradona, Pelè, Baresi, Buffon, etc. etc., and this team is one of the strongest in the World, and many of these great players leave the team for "unknown" reasons, would you be worried?
All here.

Re: Forum & Database Update

The more interesting question, that I posted on DAC and has been completely overlooked is that, are the rumors true or false that the database will no longer be on Wings900 & DAC. If you read the posts carefully the forum part stays the same, while the database remains but on a separate website. While it hasn't been confirmed why hasn't this been noticed by anyone else?

In all reality, two of the original owners Todd & Jim were still active on this forum until recently and they have gone strangely quiet. All of the other volunteers that have been updating the database are no longer doing their normal activities (Carlos, Rex, Julian & others.... last update almost two weeks ago now... which is UNHEARD of...) something is much more then the public relations post by "Andrew".

If all of the team members left, and nobody is happy on the team, that means there are bigger issues at hand, which can be said of the failure of the owners of the website, and the necessity to have it sold off.

Re: Forum & Database Update

I think it would be foolish of the new site owners to remove the database from the forums in which it is embedded. Although they may own it in a strictly legal sense, the Database exists only because of the dedication of all those who have contributed to it over the years. In essence, it is a community property. It only remains a useful tool if it remains dynamic and current. It depends on the ongoing goodwill of members to contribute if it is to remain relevant and it would be foolhardy indeed to snub the collective communities who have established it, nurtured it and who have a vested interest in it.

All here.
The last time Brazil won soccer's world cup, Pele wasn't on the team, and France without Platini... the point I'm trying to make great players come and go but the team stays.
A true fan doesn't threaten to quit supporting his team because there's a new owner and some players left.

Re: Forum & Database Update

The best points mentioned in this thread are:
- This is YOUR database
- members are the soul of this community.

This is the essence of the matter.

Now if Andrew and the new owner are reassuring you the database is staying then I suppose that is a fact. What would be the point of lying to you? To keep you in for a few more weeks?

If you feel that this fact may not be true simply copy/paste the content of your collection on an excel spreadsheet for safekeeping

As for the rest, is is just around the corner. As long as there are members like Charter, who are truly passionate on collection, there will always be a place to go to

Over and out!

Re: Forum & Database Update

Haz, I have stopped offering my services two months ago when the forums were sold, but just did not make a public announcement about it, cause it did not mean that I am leaving all my friends in here

You see, you have been under new management for over 2 months already so it is not as bad as you think it is.

These forums were created by collectors. Ever since they were named with a price tag it's has been a business all along. And that is over 5 years ago. So unless these forums and ANY FORUMS belong to enthusiasts, they need to make a living.

As Doc said. Wait out for the so called "changes", make a collection copy if you feel insecure and act accordingly after the changes.

Nobody will be happy if the changes are not wanted. Neither you nor the new owners. This is a business and it needs to be WIN WIN!
