I really wanted to help out the site.  I really like vBulletin.  I have an idea that is not too complicated that has not been mentioned yet.  It would be kewl.

But the last time I tried to help the site, I wrote several messages explaining why it was a good idea and someone voted down my reputation.  I have never received any positive reputation.  I have received 100% negative reputation in direct correlation to how many messages I write.  This has trained me through negative feedback to stop trying to help the site.  It also trained me to stop inviting people onto the site, to stop reporting bugs and to reduce my message writing by 90%.  The more I try to help out the site the worse my rep gets.  That is why I am not explaining my nice idea.  Goodbye.

@Wayne
NP, thanks for moving the OT stuff. I got carried away ;)

Edit - you missed a couple of posts BTW.
Code: [Select]

So... lemme understand...

Back when the site was still under initial rollout construction, one person gave you a negative rep because you kept harping on the "I liked the old Amiga.org better" and now, rather than trying to gain positive reputation, you're "taking your ball and going home"???

For the record, you've only received one single rep since the rollover to vB, out of several dozen posts.  Please don't tell me that one single person's disagreement with you over a post in the "hate! hate! hate! thread was enough for you to quit the site.  I didn't think you were the "sensitive type".

I voted other and had in mind a SVN hosting service for Amiga-related closed-source programs that cannot be hosted on any of the open-source hosting services such as Google Code or SourceForge.net .


Thats a good idea, even if it means such code will no longer be closed ;) well, with user accounts/groups, web access, and user rights, it would be fine. Maybe we can expand a svn hosting to a more helpful mix between sourceforge.net and koders.com for Amigans? :)

AmigaOS 4 has OS4Depot.
MorphOS has MorphOS Files.
Another archive site would not hurt but will it add something new?


totally agree, why should we need another repository?

also the "new" Aminet interface is good (do you remember the old?), may it can be improved, but imo is nice as-is.

However, @Wayne: feel free to add a wrapper/bridge to Aminet here if you feel it can be a good new interface to files, it should be easy than creating a new repository, hmm.. what about a bridge to all our currently available repositories here on amiga.org (Aminet, os4depot, MOS Files, AROS, etc..)? eg: one looks for mplayer and it returns the files available for all platforms, or per platform, or even files available from no-repositories private/user-websites...

Wayne,

You have my vote for a Music MOD Repo.

Though they exist elsewhere, it sure would be great to get the best of both worlds and a one stop site visit for me.. not only a great forum site, but also cure my crave for mod files. I would try to help in some way if you needed help in maintenance.

I never said any such thing.

I stand corrected, but what I meant to say was that you were in the "hate, hate, hate" thread going on about the font in the header

(which is one of the more pointless arguments this site has ever had)

But here's what I don't think you get.  

You just came to THIS forum/thread to tell us all how you have this killer idea but refuse to share it because you're mad someone gave you a negative rep on one single post.

I sincerely want to hear your idea, as I'm always looking for new ways to help the community, but I really don't understand your logic on this one.

Could any of the persons who asked for creating a file repository please tell me what's wrong with Aminet (or os4depot, AROS archives...)?

That's a honest question, I simply don't get it. All I understand so far is "we're not happy with Aminet" - but the question is: why?

And, if there's something about Aminet that irritates you, wouldn't it make more sense to tell the Aminet team about it - instead of trying to set up a replacement?

Nothing wrong with Aminet but I don't see anything wrong with a new file repository, maybe based on requests from amiga.org users...
Could even be a place where users could spec out an app they need and it is made to order...

Back when we had dialup BBSs, we all stored the same files for download and the duplication didn't diminish the worth of a BBS compared to others...

For the record, I have nothing either for, or against the Aminet. I've used it for years.

I'm just looking for ways to make THIS site better for the community.  File repository, or mods repository, or.... were just the three easiest choices for something database driven that we could potentially add without too much trouble.

There's no intent to usurp anyone, but then again, I doubt anyone griped too much when the other file repositories were built to supplant Aminet.

I dont want another Aminet. However Aminet needs to be updated to keep newest software, drivers etc seperate.

I would like a place for New Amiga Users to learn about how to use the Amiga.

Newbie guide

Top 10 list of wordprocessor, email, paint packages etc

Application list with ratings, online user guide for each app, with pictures !

Like lemon Amiga, nice and colourful.

The problem with Aminet and OS4 depot is no/small pics. we need a cnet download.com front end for Aminet and OS4 depot.

Source code repository i can view online
