Optimus mode activated...

Pouët.net's main purpose is to function as a database for all scene productions. (A sort of front-end for scene.org.) Screenshots, readme files, download links, group homepages, party info, etc.. It does that quite well. (Although maybe larger screenshots and/or three images per production would be nice: I no longer surf at 800x600.)

The comments for each production are a nice secondary feature and can be full of interesting discussions, such as insight from the creators, updates, links to similar productions, etc.. Sure there's some noise, but hey, that's the internet.

This BBS is a tertiary feature -- a sideshow in more ways that one. But who cares what is posted here? It's for entertainment only. Pouët.net's raison d'être ain't to be the official demoscene BBS.

To me it seems the best place to discuss demos is at a demoparty, not on the 'net.

But there's a lot of good stuff on this site. For example, I love seeing the "latest added comments." Why? Because invariably there's a comment for some obscure production I've never heard of before. It's nice to discover some long-lost gem that would probably never be found by randomly searching scene.org.

At any rate, I must sound like a broken record by now because I've said all this before. So, without any further ado...

Optimus mode deactivated.

thom: i agree
with you
Wade, you said you'll stop!

thom, i didn't believe the "optimus mode" one bit. your english was too coherent.

Wade: Agreed. The majority on Pouet come to Pouet because they like acting like gay children discovering thier penis's.
thom: word.

Wade: "but the scene (newschool, oldschool and playschool) has occupied way too much of my time and cost me too many opportunities already."

So why don't you get yourself a life and stop occupying my bytes in my browser?! Sorry, but we are so childish idiots in metalvotze, but our machines are simply better than yours - time to face the truth hahahaha.
Well, Wade, I would really like to meet you on a party - have some barbecue with us and show us your new ihlaid-production.
hahaha, sorry for posting again, Wade, but I just find your posts too amusing:
"If you're addicted to the net find a forum that will motivate and teach you to..."
thom: word.

Anyone willing to create a pouet2 with moderated forums (no degrading porn pics), and a size limit on posts? =P

How about splitting the bbs. One for 'freestyle' stuff and one for 'somewhat serious and maybe even scene related' topics. You don't need a second pouet for that. ;) (but then again, I feel this wouldn't work anyway)

Tomaes: it could work if the moderators ( how many are they btw ? ) can move the threads to the appropriate bbs.

Man... some people take things a little too seriously. Its just a website, ffs! If you don't like the silly threads, don't read them.

wade, well, maybe it would be better if some people that transformed into optimus would put some effort in reanimating shane then? (wink)

it would be worth it - just to get a fair average of eloquency back in the threads again.

i can't be bothered by the BBS unless it breaks the mainpage layout. which it can't do iirc.

wolfvoz: you know, the word "forum" might indicate something other than a webforum.

..and i'm with wade on this one - optimus - take a hint.

thom: much of what you said up there made sense, the problem is that it's not what people write on the bbs that's causing the miscontent, it's what they write in the comment-fields.

What i see is, that people who got a life (or better to say a girl - for our queens: a boy is also okay, haha) besides scene just take the things (either on this bbs here, as well as at parties) not too seriously.
Besides that, scene is more than pouet or just this bbs here itself.
All i can suggest again and again is: Go to a party it is at least much more closer to real life than lurking around in here. And then don't dare to sit down only and leech pr0n, but walk around and get the experience with all the other sceners.
is "experience" a new word for beer? :D
added on the 2004-05-14 13:32:44 by Gargaj Gargaj
Pahahaha, depends on, interchangeable also with: barbecue, more than small talk, get to know other machines, playing dicks, sleeping in the car without complaining it is cold, noticing that people are completely different to that impression you got of them in here, ... Stuff for a new thread? haha
Wade:Probably it makes sense to visit a forum which provides a moderator. Pouet offers too much freedom if not anarchy if you ask me.

You could try it with http://totalkaos.de instead of Pouet, it's not bad, many oldskoolers are hanging around there. There are special places for serious discussions and space for jokes and such.
