Will we finally see Netscape as an integrated browser ???

Dec 7, 1998, 5:48am
I jstu saw this at Cnet, it basically claims that because Netcsape 5.0
is a part of the open source format, that developers will be able to use
the browser engine, and be able to use it as an embedable component in
their applications

Something for COf to seriously look at, so they can get proepr twin
browser supprot .. .

Also, I use AW every day....alot of the time for my own private purposes -
as do quite a few others of us here. Alot of us sometimes even use other
citizen names, because of the constant telegramming and such we get in our
private time (like when im in the worlds at night hanging out with friends,
I dont want to be telegrammed every second by people wanting support when im
not working, I want to hang out with my mates and drink some evening beer
and relax you know?) so that statement is quite ...well, false =P

objects that I had *fixed* in the registry when I lat put it in....

But, it was a while ago, so I'm not sure. Best I can do is make sure its
fixed on Monday - hay, we all knew there were going to be some issues with

[View Quote]
Wow...hay Tom, good luck bro :)


What is happening to AW?

Feb 9, 2003, 11:33am
I have to agree.

This is the worst decline I have seen in my six or seven years in
Activeworlds, even when charges were first introduced it wasnt this bad -
and a hell of a lot of people left when they started charging money for the
program (even $20 a year). Only the very hardcore and dedicated remained -
trust me, if all those people had of stayed the community would be huge....

....but this is worse, much, much worse. AW GZ is most oftent han not now, a
virtual ghost town - most people go to AWten GZ or even the GATE to chat to
people, because there is more likelihood of people being there than at AW
GZ...it used to be, that on weekends, there would be upwards of fifty people
in AW GZ at any one time..now your lucky if there are even TEN.

The monthly rate is the definate cause of this. There is jsut not enough in
the worlds to give people satisfaction of paying $7 a month. They can go to
other online gaming communities for only a little more than that, and garner
a huge amount more satisfaction than here. They are still developing AW,
yes, but I jsut dont believe it is being done fast enough. If, they had of
spent all the money that they had a few years ago on actually getting a
large group of programmers together, not jsut two or three at once max, then
they could be seeing a larger statisitcal mass of users now - instead, they
went the whole "business" route instead of the more "recreation route" and
they lost out. I thin that they chose too late to go the "recreation route",
much, much too late.

In al honesty, I only go into AW now to see if anyone is on. I can count the
number of "new" citizens I have met in the past few motnhs on one hand. It
used to be that I would continually meet new people, every day, and have new
things to do all the time.

I'm afraid that the whole monthly payment thing hasnt worked out. In doing a
monthly payment, they didnt have enough new eatures to justify the huge
price increase, and thus people ahve now turned away. And yes, the
gradiation is now being seen - those whose 1 year memberships have now
expired are not renewing like AW had hoped, and I thinkt hat even they are
probably starting now to realise just what a negative impact that has had.

There are also much fewere universe sales these days as compared to not so
long ago.

Yes, the community is in a very big decline, a decline that has been talked
about for years, but is now actually coming to pass. Those of us who have
been arouind a logn time can see it, and know it, those who are new are jsut
used to the fact that there are not that many people around. People will
keep coming to AW, but unless things change drastically again, then the
community will never gain the loft heights that it once attained. Instead of
growing, the memberships are shrinking, and as memberships are a fair
portion of the companies income (not as much as universes, but they are also
declining I presume) then they are goign to ahve to actually TAKE that
drastic action.

What they need, is a new tier - and it was something that I suggested so
many times when I was working there. Originaly the plan was to have
citizens, and then a Premium citizenship on top of that - the premium would
probably have been the monthly fee, but with special bonuses - 3D homepages,
access to special options and special features, access to the NewAW building
world. They may even stillb e planning to do this, but I wouldnt ahve the
foggiest. Reduce actual citizenships back to a yearly fee of even $15 and
year, implement a third tier structure with special functions at a monthly
rate. People WILL pay it, because there are enough of a hard-core user base
that would go for that option. At the same time, plain citizenship fees
would be reduced by hundreds of percentiles, even loer than originally, and
believe me, you would see such a large influx of users coming back.

That would be my solution, and it isnt even all THAT drastic. You reduce
normal citizenships, adda premium level....and watch everyone stream in. I
can see only this as the one hope they have of getting the user base back.

We will wait and see. I think that this year, will show us what they want -
a ghost town of a community, or a real one.

Heres a case in point - the old timers who are here, will remember
Yellowstone. Once upon a time, at most parts of the day,t here would be a
community of at least ten people int here, then up in the thirties in peak
times. Now, its is a ghost town, I dont even think anyone hangs out inth ere
anymore - it is, in effect, a utterly dead community.

One needs only to look at the yellowstone community example to see that
something has gone drastically, and completely, wrong.
