Wake up!
« on: June 28, 2014, 06:48:18 am »
Okay Soldat Forums, it's been almost THREE days since your last post. This is extremely unnerving. What was once a lively thriving community is almost past dead. This forum is in danger of being archived and merged into some unified THD grand forum. I don't want that to happen. Seeing the amount of decay this forum has gone into honestly brings a tear to my eye as I've been coming here daily over the past 10 years.

Here are the rules for this thread:

1) If there are no posts elsewhere in the forum for over 1 day, post *anything* here.
2) Anything constitutes stuff that is not banned in the rules.
3) Go!
Careful with that axe, Eugene.

Indeed, I've been watching this cancer-like stagnation for the past few months myself and I dont see a lot of ways to get out of this damned state. It is truly unnerving what has become of this place. We can try and bump activity a little bit. I WOULD PREFER NOT TO SEE IT ARCHIVED so wake the fuck up!

What about a shoutbox?

Im chill like that

A shoutbox would do OK indeed. F12

Also we should really get some more veterans bumpin' on here.

LOL, first you threat all new users like trash, because they post random topics/posts like here: http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=43219.0 or here: http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=38412.260

AND NOW YOU ARE SAD THAT YOU ARE ALONE HERE?? xD cool!

Now you have only few older users that talk only about some random stuff, even devs dont post anything new, hell! No one post anything about soldat! even now there is less that 100players in game.
Why?

Because some dicks that think they are "veterans" and own everything, discouraged every new idea made by new users, and others say that changes need time... sorry this game is too old to talk like that Get your sht done, remove all F trolls that bashing every new idea and start fixing this game, because like Adam said in this threat:
http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=43537.msg520761#msg520761

All that Fckers that are so proud that they are here for more than 6 years did nothing in the past few years, only: BLA, BLA, BLA, BLA, BLA, BLA, BLA, BLA,  talkin talking talking.

And what you gonna get in the next version of soldat? few random bug fixes that shoudl be removed 8-10 years ago, probably new stupid idea about movement or weapons and maybe 10% less players than now.
You should thx your "veterans" users that their approach to everything new is like: "GTFO you are noob".


I hope now you have topic to talk.
Because looking at you now, I think you didn't deserve for anything better than random rant not related to actual game, because thx to some of you no one like spending here time anymore. you are all alone now.

Yeah, goodness, I used to come here daily. Being here for 7 years, I don't want it to disappear. I still rely on this forums for, well, EMOTIONAL SUPPORT. Lol, maybe not literally, but it's a nice reprieve. Plus, in a month or so, I'm going to go back to mapping.

Anyway, I still really enjoy this forums. A merge into a THD forum would suck, and would probably not look half as nice, plus we'd lose our independence and the chance for oldies to come back to what they used to know.

A shoutbox would do OK indeed. F12

Also we should really get some more veterans bumpin' on here.

Bleh, a shoutbox would just shit up the forums.

And having veterans visit is in no one's control.

Devlogs (and discussion related to the game's future in general) are the only reason I really visit here day by day and I guess I'm not the only one.

Unfortunately does this place have validity for being independent aside from devlogs that could be combined with a larger forums? I guess I would argue, yes, given that I've already said that it gives veterans a place to rejoin, and that the game popularity could spike with future updates (desperate, but maybe).

I'm glad an attempt to keep this forums alive is out there. I think of the forums from time to time...

I used to sit and refresh the forums, waiting for responses.

I still do that. Whenever I'm on a computer, even at work at every job i've had, I always have an 'Active Topics' tab open and refresh it periodically throughout the day. I know some oldies refer to these forums as their first "internet forum" and have since moved elsewhere, but I haven't. Only forums I visit are these and 4chan, the latter of which doesn't count as its stateless and i only browse it when i'm drunk at 2am. Even if I didn't get into a staff position in the soldat/thd community and gain responsibility for maintaining the soldat forums/servers, I'd still come here and refresh active topics as a community member.

God DAMN that looks good. I should probably learn to cook and buy ingredients to make that kind of sandwhich. Food porn is always welcome, even if it's for the sole purpose of keeping a forum alive. I don't know what that bowl is filled with though.

post a devlog already

Where the fuck are the devs anyway? Shoozza has yet to get back to me when i linked him this thread.

Admittedly, I was doing it five minutes ago.

Same here.

Also to be honest,

When I check unread posts, most of what I see are random topics with random people giving their opinion on things for which they have no expertise...
Just like now, I checked the "Show unread posts since last visit." And apart from this thread, all I saw was:
"Religion Re-Envisioned"  http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=43593.0

Seriously guys...  I check here to see things related to Soldat. And what I find are topics about religion...
I'm starting to wonder if this forum has any relevance and pertinence left.

Not only that but let's pretend I'm interested about this religion topic. Why would I discuss it here? Why not go to a History/Philosophy/Theology forum instead. There I would learn things from people who at least have a clue of what the fuck they're talking about.

Sorry, jrgp, if this forum is loosing activity. It's not your fault in any way. It's just the reflection of the game Soldat itself losing activity.

Maybe the devs could write some devlogs to spice it up a bit?

So while we're regaining our forum activity, we shouldn't forget about having some fun meanwhile.
