I think that only one can live - not sure if this is a bad thing but I'm pretty sure that eventually only one will be used. People will always try to flock to the more popular one (and eventually the less popular one will be 'dead'). It'd be a shame if the Pandora section here died because I felt like it fits in well with the other open source console sections here. If the new site dies then all support for the device goes back to an unofficial forum.EvilDragon said:<sigh> Whatever dingens posted and deleted about me - I'm probably happy I didn't read it
I really hope he calms down and understands I cannot do much more than I did currently...
Well, I still kinda don't know whether to be happy about the split or not.
I was against it originally... then thought a support forum would be good, but Craig wanted more.
However, at the moment, I don't know.
My honest opinion is: A single person, be it Craig or anyone else, can never split a community. Not simply with new boards.
If the community SPLITS by that - it was split in their hearts before.
And if that is the case, it will probably be good for both sites, as it relaxes the situation and creates a better mood in both places.
We even have some folks who were angry because the Pandora "invaded" these boards.
Those will be happy that Craig is gone - and the mood will lighten up. Also, there were guys who thought you can never criticize anything about the Panndora here because Craig will bash them and the mods will support him.
That's now changed, too.
I've also seen a few of the NEW guys posting at the new boards, who never posted before, because e.g. the old board was too big for them-
What I think is, that both sites will get along together quite well.
Some people will happy here, some will be happy at the new boards. While the community might split here, the mood should be more relaxed and better on both sides - leading to more users to join and post.
Time will tell. And while I still don't know if the split was a good thing, I'm optimistically looking into the future - and will support both sites as good as I can.
I rather have two smaller places full of joy than one big place where people start bickering every so often.
What do you think?
Edit: Many of the "new users" could be old users with new names.
