Fire is dead - thanks to the PK intrusion on our community, it will never,
ever be what it once was - indeed, it is now a ghost town - from one of the
most popular, open, and free communities to a ghost town - whent he PK"s
came in and said they wanted it to be cleaned up, they destroyed the
community in exactly the way we ALL said they would.

History has proven our concerns correct - would have been nice if we had
been lsitened to at that time, but a certain PK leader wanted everything his
way, and ended up destroying one of the most unique communities of people in
the history of Activeworlds.


Fire is dead. Long Live Fire.

You know, on second thoughts, I'd volunteer as Yellow community leader.

Might even make me want to come into AW even more.

I think out of any of you I'd be best qualified ;) hahahahahha


Oh, that'd actually be funny...only condition? No PK's allowed. At all -
yeah, if that was the case, I'd do it.

you know, in theory, the community could be resurrected - because those two
things are what made it a haven for people like us :)

No idea who you are, but you should have a little more respect. To
change AWGZ is to change something of historical value. To you know any
of the stories behind the place? Do you know any of the actual history?
Tell me, what is "Bel's Corner", why is it the way it is? So, what, hey,
why dont we go and knock down the Empire state building. Why dont we go
knock down the White House, oh, or the Washington Monument. See, those
places are a part of American history. They are part of that countries
history, and it disgusts me, that you, who are one of the ones who sit
there and probably go on about how much they "lvoe aw!" that you would
even begin to think about knocking down a piece of living history. Aw is
one of THE oldest VR environments running on the web. There is nothing
else like it. There never will be - it is as much a nation as anywhere
else. As much a COMMUNITY as anywhere else, as any other mation on this
earth. It has had wars, it has had deaths (yes, and some of those who
are no longer with us have a lot of history in AWGZ - do you accept the
defiling of memorials also?), it has had pain, love, life birth,
sacrifice .. it is a virtual monument to TEN YEARS of a new world. That
world may no longer be in its golden days, but that doesnt mean that you
go and piss on those who made that world what it is in order to have
WEEEEE BLING BLING NU GRAFIIIX!!!

Ignorance? Dont even start with me mate, you are outmatched,
out-historified, out-knowledged and out clued - and if you seriously
want to try to match me in a flame war, then please, pretty please -
bring it on. I havnt had fun arguing in this forum for some time. If
not, and if you want to actually start showing some respect for the
history of the software you procalim to love, slink back into YOUR
corner, and shut the fuck up :)

I think I might hang around a while, it seems some of you newbies might
need to actualyl learn a little more about what went into this community
from the very start. I'm quite happy, and MORE than eager to teach :)

Take care now.
F.

ps - I never went anywhere. I never left, and I never intend to. Guess
you havnt met me before - but now you have. I'd say that makes you
pretty special, to be able to get me out into the open like this.

So, has the AW community sunk to such a low level, that a person gets
ejected for merely saying "bastard"?

Jesus. No wonder this place is dying.

Actually, that was fun - i havnt been ejected in YEARS.

Ahh, good times. good times...

PeaceKeepers: A Modest Proposal (rant)

May 9, 2005, 3:13pm
ROFL - The Peacekeepers "mission" was misguided fromt he beginning. Some
of us attempted to guide it into a vessel that would help the community,
but no matter how hard we tried, it jsut turned into a virtual world
gestapo. It was directly responsible for the destruction of the
Yellowstone community, and there is nothing today hat resembles the
things that we had hoped to set out for the future of AW left in it. It
consists of power freaks, and the those embeded with that horrible
malady that seems to be afflicting so many of american persuation - a
loathsome right wing, "christian" based attitude (and not to rag on
christians, but those with half a brain can understand what I mean by that).

I have a lot of chat logs from back when we were setting up the PK's -
back when some of us were TRYING to make it into something that wasnt
just Razzle and m0es plaything back then. It was a power struggle, and
we got ignored - and now, look what it has wraught? AW is not the
community it once was. It hasnt died, but it is not what it could have
been, nor, without major change, will it ever reclaim its fallen glory.
The place used to be crowded, and now, it is often a ghost town.

Believe me when I say this - but the best bet for AW to ever, ever get
back to whereit was, is to completely overhaul its user system, to
abolish the PK's and GK's and put something else in place - the
"community" policing ideal that was brought forth so many years ago has
shown itself to be a complete, and absolute failure to a horrible
degree. From me, who was one of the first 16 GK's, and one of the very
first PKs, it makes me very, very sad, to see the part that these
"helpers" have played in the communities rot. I ven went and worked at
AW, and in my own way tried to see what I could do from "the inside" -
look at that...I offered suggestions for things that could be done and
did what i could when i could..but...

It wasnt supposed to be like this. It wasnt supposed to be anything,
like this.


I lament and yearn for the AW of old, because what is left now, is
barely a shadow of what it once was, and what it could have been - those
who are left from back then, know what I am talkinga bout. They know,
what I mean - those of you who never knew that world, will probably say
"what are you talkinga bout, we have a community!" - but oh, oh...if
only, if only you really knew what you have lost =/

Cop-out Strike. Its not about you, its not about Lady Teal, its not
about some stupid assholes making the task unpleasant and you throwing
in the towel.

Its about the community - put your reservations and politikin' aside and
jsut get on with the damn job.

I cant believe that all Bits hard work over the last few years has now
just turned into a pack of petty bickering.

Get over it guys. Work together and solve your problems - this bullsht
isnt what the Cy's are about.

That is what it became at the end maybe, and I am sure there are other
reasons Bits quit - shed been doing it for a very long time, but thats
not how it was at the start.

Great to see you again Bit's - I hope you've been well, it sounds like
you've been doin good!

I think your suggestion is a good one - something new needs to be
created - I;'d hate for all the hard work by you and others to go the
way of all this bickering and in-fighting - it was a wonderful thing (I
remember getting one of the first awards and the gold cy model! hehe),
but everything has its day as well, and,a s you say, best to history
than sullied.

Take care hon, and say hi to that 'Tex bastard for me :)

Well, I've been waiting since 1999 for them, and it seems from all rumours
that Personal Avatars will be in 4.1


All i can say is THANKYOU guys.


Now, wheres my email reply =P

Personal avatars

technically they can do it - they have know how to do it technically for
a long time. The problem, lay in how to go about policing the uploading
of avatars. Yuo dont want someone walking with an avatar of a big penis
for isntance (although, wouldnt that be great!). But they've been trying
to figure out a "way" to monitor how to go aobut the submissions for
quite some time now - it was even talked about quite a lot whilst I was
still working there - it looks like they have technically implemented it
now, and, I have a little more faith in the fact that after four years,
they may have figured out a way to properly monitor it.

Now that they have technically implemented it into the actual browser,
its not so far off that they will get it working in terms of submission
- once the tech is there, you make it work.
