Why are we not posting????
« on: 13 August 2008 08:22 AM »

   This my sound like an odd subject to be posting about here, but since the official forums have gone up, I've seen less of us posting on this one. Zach had mentioned that cryptic was keeping an eye on the threads here, before the relaunch of the sto site, and I see no reason that they would stop doing so, as I'm sure they have people checking all the fan sites for reactions and our ideas. I don't believe that it will stop simply because they now have their own forums.

  So lets start debating what is going on and continue giving voice to our ideas here and see what happens? We may be able to have a hand in sto's development and I for one would like to see this happen. Were a sensible group of ppl on this site from what I've experienced and not given to near as much whining and flaming like has been happening at the official forums.

  Lets start chatting people!

because after digesting the debut and rereading/listen and working through the double talk, all i see left is exactly the same thing PE was going to give us, except with the addition of a second playable faction. I was so hoping Cryptic would have upped the game to a better standard than COX/WOW/EQ2 in space.

unfortunatly, my worst fears have materialized, i remember stating awhile ago when they took on a ceo from seo that the game would be dumbed down and sanatized for the masses, and so far evertything i've heard from them and read from them supports that.

ah well i will continue to watch it progress, maybe they'll cange course and suprise m without double talk and hiding the truth about dumbing it down. so why bother posting if they haven't listen yet, what's going to make them listen and undnerstand we're right yet again?

honestly, if i was cryptic, i would not look at the official fourms ever. as ive been saying, they are full of fail and stupidity.

but if you look out our shoutbox transcript, you will notice a lot of discussion over a broad range of topics from Decals on ships to lifetime subscriptions.

Its the shoutboxes fault.  People dont post on the forums because of the shoutbox.  Perhaps I need to have a rethink about the shoutbox and its funtionality, placement, etc

   By not posting there is nothing to see and cryptic will have no reason to come here, okay sure there are things we are not happy with, DEBATE them!  Perhaps we can't 'influence' what cryptic has planned right now, but that does'nt mean we will never be heard, and sometimes what we say here now could have an effect on what HAS'NT done yet. Or effect a future expansion to the game.  By posting here we have a more or less permanent record that cryptic can peruse at their leasure, rather than trying if at all to unravel the poop that is going on at the official forums.

   We have a good thing going here people, we rarely flame and offer constructive criticism.Let's use it, or would you rather they turn a blind eye to us, by bieng defeatist. Cryptic does not have an alternative, except for us. Whether that's true or not is not important. But at least we here, can give them that option, which is far more than I can say about the official forums. Maybe we dont have the numbers so what, were sensible intelligent people, more then again I can say about the sto forums.

   It's up to all of us!
