It says on there that a read-only version of the forum will be up in due course, as I would have always expected to happen.

I think that everyone getting in a blind panic over it and doing their own grabs of the entire site, then refusing to stop when asked, just forced Simon's hand.

Yeah, it wasn't pretty seeing all that happen, if I'm honest.
Plus the insane number of "Join MY forum!!" posts started to get very old, very fast.
Nasty stuff..
Kinda makes me glad that CodersWorkshop just stopped one day. Saved us having to deal with all that!

if each of us will pay a sum of money it can be kept online

Which is exactly why Mark took down the forum in the first place.
If you have spare money to throw around, donate it to Mark.

If mark will make the website with only paid registered users he would surely get the money he desire..
its quite simple.. each one of us wont mind putting between 1$ to 3$ per month or slightly more..

if you publish the cost it can be shared by all paid users..

and all the rest are welcomed to watch the website without being able to post..

anyway I started making this Forum just incase


I just did it today so its still simple

I am NOT having 100 links to 100 forums, splitting and fragmenting what little there is left of this community.
It happened once before, and I'm damned if I'm going to let it happen again.

Once everything's settled in a week or so, I'll decide which is the better suited of the new onslaught of forums, and link to it in this topic. But I am NOT having a myriad of minor splintered forums, all over the damn place.

Definitely no more forums. There's already this one, monkeycoder and syntaxbomb, plus at least two others that are doomed to failure from the off. If Blitz forums were leg fractures, they'd amputate.

all i can say is this forum looks horrible and not managed properly as well..
if people decide to remove out of anger stuff from your post..
it is certainly not a good home for blitz..

I think for me its game over..
Im disappointing from blitz manager approach

Then I look forward to you proving me wrong, by building the best replacement that you can.

Go forth and create. It is the only true way to win this argument.

Look.. its a cute forum in General.
maybe I said it too harsh..

But for a site Dedicated to Blitz we need sections
like in blitzbasic.com forum

I am trying to make a forum but you removed my link.
I have no will to be in control and I dont mind giving the rights to some people to be Admins.

for me its insulting that mark has decided to close the doors on blitzmax..
its if telling you, you wasted your time bud.
a good language should never be abandoned.
one day it will occur to monkey 2 .

I kinda of lost my trust in mark

The thing is - SoCoder is NOT a forum dedicated to BlitzBasic/3D or other Blitz Research products.

SoCoder was originally created for coders that use/used Blitz products, sure (following the closure of the original Blitz forums and CodersWorkshop). But Blitz isn't the reason some members call this place "home."

I know its not dedicated for blitz..
thats why I desire a dedicated website for blitz

Nobody's perfect, so don't expect perfection anywhere on any site. This site is as good and has as much potential as any other. Jay has done a damn good job with SoCoder.

Annoyingly, if I'd've launched S2, already, at least 1% of the complaints about the site looking old would've been different!!!
Meh, whatever..

I think he meant "if someone were to set up a blitz site, it would need...." etc.

I had just joined 2 weeks before the closure.
It was good.

I love the socoder site myself, works just fine, never really had any issue with it, having hand coded forum software from scratch on other projects myself, Jay has done a bloody good job with this one.
