Back from Amiwest, fun was had.
« on: July 30, 2003, 02:30:39 PM »
Back in Florida, can't type much atm since I need to catch up on my auctions. I will put up a few pics later today, not too many though since my digital camera seems to do a poor job in poor light situations.

I may do a mini show report, though there's not a ton to report that you probably don't already know since I see the banquets and speaches are transcripted already.

A few points of interest.
There were a couple rumors I heard of fricition between camps but I didn't see it therefore I won't report it:-D

Ben Herman and Bill Buck sat side by side for the banquet Q&A without a fight breaking out;-)

I purchased Hyperion's Quake II, Freespace and PageStream4.1 at the show. i also picked up a copy of the Super Bundle so I am very anxious to get things done today so I can start playing with the Peggy.

I met a few more AO users. I must say everyone I spoke with seemed like genuinely nice people. I'd like to thank the show organisers and everyone I met for making it an enjoyable time:-)

Welcome back.  Glad you had a good time.  Wish I would have been able to go.  Maybe next year.

Wait a minute!

Genesi USA is now a ranking?!?! :-)

Just kidding. Great news there, Wayne. I was listening to the mp3 of the announcement while I was burning the 5 CD set of the mp3's from the show. :-D

Nyah Nyah, I still have the WebMaster ranking :-P Although, "Mouth of the South" would probably be more fitting :lol:

Hey, where's my Genesi USA rank?!?


Uh, doesn't this "Genesi USA" rank idea seem like a big mistake? The ranks are supposed to be (i.e., locigally) based on number of posts, with exceptions being moderators and webmaster -- in other words, rolls connected directly to the forums. It doesn't seem smart to create ranks that not only have nothing to do with the forums, but in fact cause people to question the neutrality of posts, moderation, news posting, etc.  In particular, a rank that's a corporate name, particularly the name of the site host and one of its sponsors, and one often involved in heated discussions directly or through staff or customers, seems really wrong-headed to me.

I think your signature is a more appropriate place for corporate affiliation, if that's something you want to draw attention to.

Of course it's up to you guys to decide these things, but I don't see any upside, and a bunch of possible negatives, in appearance if not in fact.

Gary_c what you're saying makes sense...even
though I like Genesi as a company, this is
definately not the best way to maintain a
"moderate" approach to the site.

I'd like to have "Ultramarines 1st Company". Please? :-)

Nevertheless I think Gary C hits the spot - after that you'd have to create Amiga Inc, Hyperion, whatever ranks too.

Sticking to the old system is more reliable imho.
