1) They chose NOT to import any old posts! WTF?????????

2) They chose NOT to import any of previous members account info. This means our post count & original join date are DELETED and reset to ZERO.

3) Now here is the biggest insult to injury. Now I could easily live with point #2 except for this:

If you have a forum account with OTHER Imaginova “communities” like for instance space.com or livescience.com you can stay logged in and participate on Newsarama’s new comic message boards. This means you can have a 2005 (or earlier) join date with 20,000+ post while posting on Newsarama. WTF?? Who thought THIS affront was a Good Idea?????????????


:-D :D

personally I think it's cool just to see you here. Seeing you and tralfaz here at the outhouse in addition to some other older posters is pretty telling

I've already been hardwired to log on to this site first when I turn on a computer. It feels more like the old rama than that rama remake

Well, it does seem like Kurt generally Googles his name a lot. :)


Seriously, though, he's not only one of my favorite writers, but one of the coolest creators to interact with on-line.

It is cool, though kinda weird reading all these posts that I remember reading as they popped up on the board. Sometimes I forget we can be watched by the world

:shock:

It's also kinda sad reading all those comments about 'rama. I really did like posting there and it really did feel like a community. (Heck, that's why I'm here, b/c this is essentially what Talk@ used to be.) And I like MattB and what he had going on there. But seeing it become what it is really sucks.

For one, I have to say, usually you can do one thing really really well or a lot of things pretty good. And it seems like they are shifting to doing a lot of things instead of the one and trying to tell us the one will still be as strong.

And another, (as I've said many times) I used to work for sears and was with them for the last seven years while they went through several major changes. A couple big ones before the kmart merger and then of course the kmart merger itself. And the whole time they said the same things 'rama is saying. This won't suffer, that won't change, this will be better; you guys just don't like it because you don't like change, etc. And seeing 'rama mirror that, really concerns me because all those things ended up not panning out for sears and they have only degraded since then. That is what I see for 'rama. They will probably level out as some sort of generic entertainment site and be lost among the ugo's and mania.coms and whatever else covers all the stuff 'rama is going to try to cover.

Maybe they will figure out that if they covered comics better and more thoroughly than anyone else, then people have a reason to come there. If they maintained the community that helped build them and back them up, then they would give people a reason to come there. As it stands now, if you want good comicbook news, go elsewhere; if you want regular entertainment news with some comics, then go to 'rama or any other site that does the same thing. Unfortunately it is sold and owned by some corporation that is snatching up sites and they won't care about it's reputation, just it's ad revenue draw. I guess that's fine, but that's not 'rama.
