It’s possible that not everybody got the original message, so I’ll repeat it here.
For now, until the bulletin board messages are transferred over to the new
system, don’t post on the new bulletin board. Post here on the old system
instead. Your messages will get transferred over, so have no fear about
that. 🙂 I will inform you when it is okay to post on the new site. And please,
please, please do not post ‘me first’ type messages to the board. Most
admins I’ve met in my life, and I’ve met lots, find messages like that very
annoying. So, please don’t post messages like that. Even if you go on to
write a full post outside of it, don’t mention it. I will delete posts like that.
It’s not that they’re bad, per se, they just have the potential of creating
dueling posters trying to one-up one another. The boards are supposed
to be for discussion, not oneupmanship or bragging rights. I want to
keep things nice, civil, and friendly here. Besides, none of the forums are
appropriate for a message like that to begin with.
I hope you all don’t mind about this, but I just want to do what I can to
make sure things don’t get wildly off topic. Aside from a few messages,
most of the messages on this old bulletin board have remained
appropriately on-topic for the forum they were posted under. There have
been very few instances of, say, a question about SQ4 being asked in
the website discussion forum, or of a new FPS (i.e.- Halo 3) being discussed
in the Sierra Games forum. You all have made bulletin board
maintenance on this site a pleasure. 🙂 Thank you!
