The decommissioning of Amiga.org is not an option, sorry.

I'm merely a casual observer of the site now... The forums got stale, and a small subset of users have made the remaining threads painful to read. This site was never the same after upgrading the forum software for whatever reason. (Yes, I know it was required just saying...) Now it seems like a sandbox for 1-2 users to annoy everyone.

Sad...

Nobody looses any sleep because we "don't know the name of the owner" - not to mention we actually know the name, the guy's called ***.

What a lot of people are "loosing sleep over", is the way the site is run these days. That's why you should address a few questions:

1.Would moving ownership from *** to you get us the following things?
  • Franko banned
  • CUSA drivel restricted to one thread (properly, not in a "opening threads for bashing them is fine" kind of way)
  • stricter moderation regarding personal attacks, sorry, I mean "humour"

2.How much money are we talking about?

3.Do you agree that the community should own what it pays for?

After reading this I can only hope that the makers of the amiga film skip history post 1999 for oh So many reasons.

I'm very much in favour of a single site owner, or at the very least a single site administrator with whom the buck stops for the upkeep of the site and enforcement of it's TOS.

I don't mind who owns Amiga.org, I like the way it's run, and the overall way that it's always been run.
People regularly talk about how it's changed but things do change with the times because they get old and stale if they don't.

Now may not be the high point of Amiga.org incarnation but it's certainly not the worst I've seen since I found the place. Even since I, eventually, stopped lurking and signed up

To answer you're original semi-question Pyromania, you've got a genuine interest and passion for the Amiga and Amiga.org. If you feel that you'd like to own it then I think you'd do a good job of being the owner because as the site admin you've put in place good moderators and generally made sound decisions. I just hope that if you do buy it (in 1 or 2 years time) that it doesn't become a burden to you.

Is the current ownership a problem of some kind requiring some sort of resolution?

Will something bad happen if you don't buy it from him/her?

Some things said in this thread make it sound like all is good as it is, so I don't understand why this thread exists?

In the past there was a bunch of angst over it. I think people grew out of it though

Thumbs up Re: Amiga.org Ownership Resolution

I am happy with the current owner, I would also be happy with Pyromania to own the site, as you both (all) care in what direction its travelling.

Thank you

Wink Re: Amiga.org Ownership Resolution

Having been part of the Amiga community for 20+ years I have learned the following:

If I owned Amiga.org or had any position of importance or influence in the Amiga community, I would also wish to remain anonymous. :-)
