Some action on the MMNET forums re: Helge's administrative practices.
I've gotten several "How does this relate to the fork?" and "OMG, you
asshole" questions ...
Do we *as a group* wish to comment on this stuff?
I'd encourage the 3rd party operators (fish, carpe) to kick in anyway,
pointing out that Imi's "one server" comment is at odds with McWIzards
"anyone can open a server" comment ... and detailing the treatment
that you received.
Vertigo's points re: "the source for all things Megamek" are accurate.
The MMNET site purports to represent the MegaMek community, when in
fact it serves largely to push people into one usage pattern. No MM
binaries. No links to forums or leagues. No mention of EG's server or
Carpe's server on the main page, etc etc.
I still hold out hope that frank discussion can change Helge's mind
about some things. If the long-needed public airing out doesn't change
his tune, at least people will have a better understanding of why
there is a fork, why other (competing) servers have opened/will open,
why forking was a rational alternative to MMNET and not the work of
satan ... etc.
