Hey I thought Wayne decided to  keep the
main forum to Amiga Stuff..

Yet so much post is Morf/Peg sales & Marketing.

I'm keen on their alt platform BUT this is Amiga.org

I also vist Morf's site regularly to see whats up.

But when I come here AMIGA is my interest.

Shall we all go over to Morf & SPAM their site with
AMIGAONE Blar Blar Blar.....

What is Pissing me off is the Hype is turning up in
every thread, where it does not belong !

Come on Wayne is it an Amiga site or Open Please Choose ! :-?

Chromozone,

By your definition, its an open site.  

By other definitions, its an amiga site with a broad
definition for all things amiga and amiga related.

This has been discussed at length. As they used to say 'RTF'...its been discussed at length, just read a thread or two.

From what I understand, Amiga.org is not simply about the classic Amiga but also the future alternatives, which includes MorphOS, Amithlon, UAE, and OS4.

I don't see how MorphOS is off topic seeming as it has AmigaOS3.x compatibility, and happens to be a step forward (even if it isn't favored by the Amiga Inc., staff).

I believe the purpose of this site is to provide news and commentary directed to those fans and users of AmigaOS and their derivatives (including MorphOS, Amithlon, & UAE) as well as the classic line and possible derivatives.

Mission Statement--Round Two
« Reply #5 on: March 11, 2003, 08:02:22 PM »
@chromozome:

For your benifit, I'll post the Amiga.org mission statment again.  I'm working on the assumption that you missed it the first time.

Amiga.org's mission statement
=============================

Amiga.org's mission is to provide support, encouragement, and information to the existing Classic Amiga community.

This includes with equality and without discrimination, but is not limited to any and all Amiga Operating systems, alternative Operating systems, emulators, and anything of demonstrated interest to the users of the Classic Amiga series of computers and the community to which it has evolved.

We will not discriminate for, or against any aforementioned alternative on the basis of friendship, advertising, and or personal political alliances.
Regards,
Targhan

I'm NO TROLL
If you read my comments or previous threads
you would know this.

I'm just sick of the banter & how it is creeping
into most threads.

You don't get this from AROS or others.

I agree MORF has it's place on Amiga.org but not
when, As in "Akarniods" Thread on OS4"
He is flooded with "jump ship" come over to Morf,
Amiga inc are no good Blar Blar Blar...

He was a new user who came here because his dad
owned a CD32 & was keen to get involved with Amiga.

But all he gets is this WAR on Platformism.

I agree with the mission statement.
I only suggested Morf/Peg was taken from the
Main Forum as other non Amiga threads have been.

No suggestion was made to remove it completley.

I just want the Dribble & Banter to stop.

So far, Microsoft PocketPC (running windowsCE) is currently the only platform that Amiga-Anywhere (formerly known as AmigaDE) is available on . I have no idea if AmigaInc have signed an exclusive deal with Microsoft or not.

If you are serious about amiga-only, shouldn't you be asking AmigaInc themselves why they have chosen to focus on AmigaDE for  M$ PocketPC?


Pegasos  & MorphOS are closer to the classic Amiga concept than AmigaDE on PocketPC.

But the dribble and banter is not breaking any rules, and removing it from the normal forums would be just the tip of the iceberg. Do we then ask for emulation systems to be put of of sight? Talk about Linux ? Microsoft? Whatever-they-call-DE-today? Do we remove all these from the front pages too?

I'll let you into a secret: some of the dribble and banter from the blue side irritates the hell out of me too. So does the cr_p the red trolls are spreading on the other site for that matter. But dribble and banter is not against the rules as long as it stays civil, and therefore it should not be banned. Oppose it by debate, and if you happen to be better at debating than they are, they'll go elsewhere in search of easier publicity.

Banning ideas is not the way to go.

Point taken your debating skills have won..
I agree the dribble comes form both sides.
And I am on neither I see them as 2 different products & would love to own 1 of each.

I would have posted on their site on  A1 spam.
 but this is AMIGA.ORG not Morf/Peg.org

When it attacks new users (which we need)
It's not right that was the point of the thread.

Now it's done I retract the BAN  but ask all
to keep it free from marketing.  (eg. TROJAN HORSE).

FIN..

And one could possibly run a ATARI_VCS-emulator on over
100 million computers world-wide .....

The number of people actually doing it is much lower (off-course).

Currenrtly available:
A game-pack which ONLY runs on WinCE (see AInc-webshop),
some other games that will run on the desktop, but none off them
superceeds PD-quality for a desktop-system.

The games aren't even cutting edge on PDAs and only available
via an obscure webshop.....

It's been 3 years now and I never saw the DE/AA/?? been
reviewed in any PC/PDA-magazine, not even the gamepack.

Oh and this thread is probraly more likeley to confuse and
annoy a new user than anything else on the frontpage.
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

1) Does AmigaDE run on Amigas? Amiga compatible
OSes? No and no... So, it wouldn't concern us even if
it did run on 1billion machines... The name by itself
means nothing...
2) It's MorphOS, not Morfos
3) Nobody attacked that guy and I can say that the thread
you are referring to was quite civilised.

AmigaDE is less amiga (in the 'genre' sense) related then MorphOS(at least it runs amiga apps).

I dunno why people complain... perhaps your just jealous? because OS4 hasnt come out yet? I dunno... but I do think tollerating other peoples choices is important.
