Alot of people don't feel comfortable posting.  Some people in other forums give newbies a bad 'rap, which isn't very fair at all.  Then there are some people who register, plan to post, but don't because their toast popped, or their computer froze, or their girlfriend called... or some crazy stuff like that.

The luker code is also highly detailed.  Breaking it would be betrayal to lurkers everywhere.

Or maybe some of us signed on because we remember the game from our childhood, but have made a silly decision to learn a foreign language, and just haven't had the time to post.   Smiley

I usually read ALL the threads. But I never post. Except for the occasional new CVS build.

Another option is that some of us are too lazy to post.  Smiley

I know my problem is that I lurked for a while, finally decided to register, registered, and then ran out of things to say. I've decided I wouldn't post "that's a pretty good idea you've got there. Too bad it was already mentioned, talked about, beaten to death and burried in the thread <Insert Link>" since doing so is bitter, condescending, and will occupy all of my time.
But besides regurgitating somebodies old ideas before reading previous posts, nobody seems to be doing much else on this board nowadays. And they do so with such frequency that the few posts with original ideas or interesting topics that should be discussed in length immedately get piledriven to page 3 on the board!
Man, that was a bitter post. I must be in a bad mood. Time to go to bed.

Well, I have a nice 50 posts now. Usually I only post a reply if I have something pertinent to say (this post is an exception Wink).

I don't visit this place so many times any more. Too much discussion makes me confuse and I'm not interested of reading hours of forum text ...

Just too much. Probably I'll stick being a Zebranky Food. Tongue

You know, after my bitter post last night I got to thinking that one problem with this forum is there's just one big "General Discussion" forum that could be broken up into a few smaller forums like:
Suggestions for the Next Release
Strategy and Help
and
General Discussions.
Now PNF already has all these forums at another YaBB forum http://dynamic.gamespy.com/~starcontrol/board/YaBB.pl but who cares! No one seems to visit there, where as we get 20 posts a day here. I think this board should combine with that board, and keep this link. Sorry PNF, but this one is just too much more popular.

True, some delineation of posts would be a good thing. I for one certainly wouldn't mind going through old posts and marking them off as belonging in one category or another.

Frankly, why would I care? Tongue
 
The PNF board will remain as a place where any Star Control discussion is welcomed.  I cannot tell you how many projects and people I've seen come and go... mostly just go.  As long as I'm running PNF, it will always be a place that archives information, serves up news of new information and fan stuff and a place to discuss Starcon.

Even if this board and project disappeared tomorrow, I'll continue on with that goal.

I'm glad to hear that.  The PNF boards play an important role in the Star Control fan community.  I mean, without the PNF boards, there might not be the UQM boards today.  I check out both boards, from time to time, just to see what's going on in the community.  Obviously I post more here than I do there, but I don't think it's purpose is lessened in anyway by the new forums.
