    Just because you don't like it, doesn't mean that we don't need it. If you actually took the time to look at all the shit that goes on in that game, you would know that one thread can't realistly hold it all. So back the fuck off and let us have our hot topic.

    Counterpoint: You are asking for a lot of kowtow for what seems in all aspects and respects to be a bandwagon.

    Damn your logic. Well, if it is just a bandwagon, it's a damn huge one. And we really do need a place for just us.

    Forget it, they aren't going to do it.

    Apparently our game isn't good enough for PA.

    The alliance of PA users is reaching near 1000 people in-game. I'd say it's gone past the bandwagon stage.

    Bandwagons are, by definition, large and involing lots of people. That's why it's a fucking bandwagon.

    And last I checked of your thread, you gained a large amount of support from non PAers who just saw a large alliance and jumped aboard.

    Finally, you guys are being real pretenious.

    The threads will still attract new people to the group and ou can have as many threads as you like.

    Says the mod of the COH forums? Accault I like you, but that seems a bit ironic.

    Is it really any different to the game/movie hot topics we had a while back. When/if they start to drop in popularity or a certain time had passed they were closed.

    Counter Point: Hot Topic forums were made so that a mod could redirct a thread made about a "Hot Topic" to a different place that wouldn't crowd our forums. I doubt that random people are just going to make Hyperiums threads on a whim. People WOULD do that for Matrix though, or for say WoW.

    The point is that you can do what you need to do in your threads, Kerome was utterly retarded in asking for his threads to be locked for no reason then making new ones, and there isn't enough outside demand that we need to cull the onslaught of threads into one locale.

    CoH isn't free, there are 10+ servers, its a lot bigger and sexier.
    Besides we do have our own message board for Power's Allegory, our SG, but most information is exchanged on the Hot Topic since a lot of people are on different servers.

    It's not even slightly ironic, the word you're looking for is hypocritical. It's not that either.

    He did also make his own boards for Powers Allegory, the SG, so he does, in my opinion, have the right to say that. I also agree that we should just get our own forums, but if we can't do that a Hot Topic forum would be cool.

    A shame, I was hoping we could keep it mostly PA peoples. Like half the non-PAers I've seen are spies for the other alliances.

    Oh well.

    I believe my PM to Munkus went some along like this:

    "The PA alliance is about to close recruitment, because it got out of hand. We want to make sure everyone gets a chance to join before we close it, could you lock this thread so I can make another to bring this to their attention."

    not

    "The thread is out of hand, lock it."

    Furthermore, I was aware of our mass threads in SE++, and asked only for the G&T thread to be locked as it was reaching critical mass anyway. I don't know why they locked the SE thread. That said, this was not my idea for a hot topic, it was everyone who fucking pmed me in the game about it (about 10 PAers).

    So I think I need an apology, and I think Munkus and Cardboard need to shove it.

    You might think so, but you're wrong. It's a good thing there aren't laws against being wrong, yet.

    I respectfully call bullshit. The WoW Hot Topic's front page has threads nearly a month old. CoH had no massive influx of threads before the Hot Topic was started. PAX is over. There's no compelling reason not to create a hot topic for something that has become a hot topic.

    The reason hot topic forums are created is to provide housing for the influx of threads regarding said topic as it becomes hot.
    WoW and CoH were both getting a LOT of attention when those forums were created, and there was a pretty impressive rush of threads on them. Those forums were created so those threads didn't overwhelm the other forums. The same goes for PAX.

    Now there's no way in hell that's going to happen with Hyperiums. There isn't that much to be said, and it could easily be confined to one thread at a time, especially if the Anime threads manage it. Look to them for example and inspiration.

    Now yes, those topics we have forums for are no longer so hot. Maybe it's time to look at retiring those forums. That does not however inversely justify a Hyperiums hot topic forum.

    The mods are all variations of Kim Jong Il. One of them is like Kim with a kidneystone, another is like Kim on a methamphetamine-fueled power trip, another is like Kim with a new can of hairspray and shiny new sunglasses, etc.

    edit: My point is even though it SEEMS like enough demand from the people would warrant it, it most likely won't happen.

    You know what? That's an inappropriate comment regardless of who you direct it at, and if you keep putting your head in the lion's mouth you might find it missing one day.
    You know what I see? I see 3 pages of mods continually trying to explain and re-explain why we make hot topic forums, why this subject won't get one, and why that's fair despite what the aggitators have to say. I don't see any fascism or communism being practiced, and the fact that you're still allowed to post here is more proof of the tolerance you so abuse than anything else.

    Or, for the attention impaired: Grow up and fuck off.

    Kerome and I spoke earlier today and discussed an arrangement wherein we support a hyperiums hot topic until he can get his own forum up and running. From there we let him keep the threads going, to garner interest in the name of PA or whatever, and let him link, from sigs and that thread, to his board. Kerome never said whether he wanted that to happen or not so I never mentioned it here.

    If you don't like the way things are run here, you have a vast world of digital real estate to explore. Feel free to do so.

    I never said I didn't like the way things are run. I'm just reminding people that vox populi doesn't always make things happen.
