@everyone

No new forums, sorry.  If there is a discussion about AmigaForever, the package by Cloanto, there is no reason to drag it into a MorphOS/HyperionOS war.  If the discussion is about how to install MUI on a classic A1200, there is no reason to drive that into a flamefest.

If people want to speculate about what Hyperion is doing, then don't immediately start throwing out MorphOS cheers.  Conversly, if people are speculating about a missing feature in their MorphOS install--there is no point in bringing up a line out of Hyperion's feature-list.

Making a new forum won't solve a thing, so we aren't going to make new forums.
Regards,
Targhan

well dont you think maybe MorphOS needs it's own forum... much as AmigaDE got its own forum.

Don't waste your time, it'll never happen.  That's not part of "the plan".  I know of a thread here that explains it, if you like obscure, pointless Greek stories. :lol:

Hint: do a forums search for "Greek" :-)

But when I come here AMIGA is my interest.


Me too, that is why I want to be able to talk about Pegasos.

but this is AMIGA.ORG not Morf/Peg.org


Why ppl still don't get it? Pegasos / MorphOS is "Amiga", or shou I call it "Amiga combatible" (like they used to say "IBM combatible" for PCs).

I agree, there's no need for MorphOS specific forums on Amiga.org. Anyone really looking to discuss MOS issues in particular should hop over to MorphZone. That's what it's there for people!

What Amiga.org needs is a bit of restraint from people who insist on bringing MorphOS into every thread, or making irrelevant comments in threads just to register their presence. That's annoying and drives people away from the site.

OTOH, it would also be nice if the childish, petty, moronic and destructive people involved in the organised campaign against Wayne and Amiga.org were to stop it now,  or else hie their unworthy hides outta here.

Blue trolls on one side and red trolls on the other. ARGH! Is it any wonder the whole community is ripped apart from top to bottom? At this rate I can make one certain prediction: there will be NO winners, only losers. Remember that.

@hmetal,

I am most certainly not aware of what "the plan" is at this point, but I find your tone a bit abrasive in light of other recent comments..

The main reason that there should not be any MorphOS forums put up here is two-fold.  One, all the "red trolls" (I'm beginning to enjoy that analogy) would go absolutely nuts screaming foul.  Two, Fleecy would use that as yet another reason to threaten the existence of this site with "we intend  to pull your domain" and "Amiga Inc is going to organize a 'mass exodus' from Amiga.org".

As I'm not interested in angering either color troll, or Fleecy for that matter, there will be no additional forums.  

Because of your employment status, you really need to help a few specific people understand something.  This site exists solely on the funds from our advertisers and contributors.  Established in 1995 for the sole purpose of supporting the community (before Amiga Inc even existed), this is NOT AmigaInc.org, nor is it MorphOS.org.  

This site exists to help members of the Classic Amiga community decide for themselves which direction THEY want to go in the future.  This is how it should be.

You you speak for me also on this issue.

@targhan

PS Id like to see an end to "HypeOS" "HyperionOS" used
as labels - it is "AmigaOS4" thank you very much. We
used to talk about AmigaOS3.1 and AmigaOS3.0 before
they were released I think that this should be no different.

I realise the intent is to show that "it is all just a name" but
frankly I think that is being petty and childish.
Hate figure. :lol:

Amiga.inc actually say that about  the site?(or fleecy speaking on his own behalf?)... why would they do that?... Amiga=female in Spanish and it did long before it =amiga computers... all ya'd need to do is pull all the amiga.inc amiga IP related stuff...and I dont think they would have much of a case although I'm no lawyer and my opinon is probably worthless on this matter I think I'm right.

for example... sgi.org isnt owned by silicon graphics... because the sokkia graphics institute got it first...and you cant push people over that easily.

pretty amazing that they would say those things though.

@mips,

I'm not going to discuss it, for fear of angering the "gods" at Amiga Inc, but it is a barely veiled fact that they have threatened both actions, both to me personally and on various sealed mailing lists.  A lot of the people here who are on those lists can verify what I'm saying, if they choose to do so.  I on the other hand, feel that it's best to say "it happened" so that you are aware of the fact, and to leave it at that until necessary.

I'm personally hoping that neither threat comes to fruition.  Amiga Inc doesn't understand a few facts in that we are now totally independent and driven by advertising.  I've actually stressed the fact that Amiga Inc is more than welcomed to place an advertisement on this site if they want to show support for this community, but they cannot expect that I remove existing paid advertisers (thereby losing the funding from said advertiser) simply because they (Amiga Inc) don't like them.

I choose to do so.  Vouched for and verified - the threats were made.  So Wayne's simple two-word statement of "it happened" is correct.
