In order to maintain control when forum discussions get out of hand.

When things have settled down, the strong use of moderation will ease up.

And that is why...

Conservatives' pessimism is conducive to their happiness in three ways. First, they are rarely surprised -- they are right more often than not about the course of events. Second, when they are wrong they are happy to be so. Third, because pessimistic conservatives put not their faith in princes -- government -- they accept that happiness is a function of fending for oneself. They believe that happiness is an activity -- it is inseparable from the pursuit of happiness.

Maybe I'm weird, but I don't have a problem with my posts being deleted. There's no point in keeping my comment around if what I'm replying to is gone. The moderators have no agenda but to keep things civilized.

The art is plenty of room for improvement. Especially the 3d models. However I tend to agree with you, how they are implemented could use much improvement as well. If the full art and models were released you would see improvement almost right away from a fork.

I wouldn't think so, I don't think artists have the same opinion about this as programmers. Besides, if the art was forkable, then people would criticize PlaneShift (or the forks) for being unoriginal.

I doubt there would be allot of critics on art differences between forks.

The posts were deleted for inappropriate content.  The posts that were not inappropriate were not deleted :)  Carry on!

It's really silly how people use the phrase "business ethics" on a game that isn't even commercial.

 

 


I didn't know you had to get paid to be ethical...

She's deleting the posts that are flames*. She isn't distinguishing at all between posts that praise the game or posts that are critical of it.  She isn't pushing anyone to do anything and the only motivation I see on her part is to keep things civil.

* She's also deleting posts that are made in response to flames, because once the flames are deleted, the replies serve no purpose.

Folks, this is a public forum. There will be a diversity of opinions. Other people will sometimes see things differently than you.  That's life.

I don't know if anyone noticed, but all of this information is listed on the PlaneShift website. Thank you to the poster for recompiling it in what amounts to a caustic portrayal of facts we made plain on our own.

The insinuation that PlaneShift has hidden something from its fans or the readers of this forum is, well, in poor taste.

Anyone with questions related to the project can go ahead and ask them openly. If my non disclosure agreement permits I will share whatever information I have in the interest of dispelling the myth expressed here in a veiled way that ps has commercial intentions from this point forward. We have no such intentions. The game's content is held by a not for profit charity whose sole purpose is to produce a free game.

What is your charity license number please?

Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul.
