Why I made this site

Discussion in 'SSA Announcements' started by LHCGreg, May 11, 2010.

  1. LHCGreg Code monkey like Fritos

    So yeah, on a certain DFO Source thread, there's no little debate about the quality of DFO Source. I figured I'd set the record straight on why I created SSA.

    • Number one reason: Dom doesn't care about DFO or about DFO Source. If it doesn't affect the bottom line, it doesn't matter to him.

    • Related to the above, I made a wiki bot program to automatically create wiki articles related to skills, and in the future it will be able to do more. Having a bot able to automatically upload images (like skill icons) requires MediaWiki 1.16 or higher. DFO Source, being on shared hosting, is probably unable to upgrade to a bleeding-edge version of MediaWiki, and even it was, it might take a while to get through to Dom. It took a while to get his attention to put SeriaBot in the DFO Source wiki Bot usergroup. I PM'd him about it, but no response. I had to post in one of the few threads he paid attention to in order to get his attention about it.

      With my own VPS server, I can run whatever software I want, including the very latest MediaWiki version.

      I also didn't like the idea of my wiki bot benefitting someone who doesn't even care about the game.

    • Rules that I feel were somewhat ineffective. I feel that a points system like the one in place at SSA and Southperry makes moderators less reluctant to hand out infractions than if a single (non-major) infraction results in a temporary ban.

    • Server stability - Browsing DFO Source gives a relatively large number of "internal server error" pages and database error pages. This would make it hard on the wiki bot.

    Lol. I said the site was a great success. D:
    Way back in December.

    Yea the best reason I think for you creating is the lack of a wiki.

    My #1 problem with DFO Source. :/
  4. Infection Cool story, bro

    Server stability and Dom's apathy are the main reasons I'm leaving DFOS. It's great to have a site owner who actually gives a damn.

    Not gonna lie, every time I try to use the modCP and it gives me internal server error I throw a fit.
  6. MasPan Shi-SHAW!

    I got pretty sick of hearing about search engine priorities every time his "leadership" is questioned.

    Yeah, I noticed how much he brings that one up. In a way his forum is very successful. He's probably making a lot of money out of it, which is what he wants. Kinda frustrating, but that's just the way it is.

    And I just learnt that he's actually from the UK. So he isn't even in the DFO service area, and from what I can see he doesn't even play DFO.

    I am not actually a member of DFO Source and I'm not going to make an account there, but wow does this guy make me lol. I'm a person who believes that people shouldn't just be working for money, but for enjoyment and interest too. He's ONLY in this for the money from what I can see. Our admin here is very committed to DFO and to helping the DFO community (To the point that he's probably a bit obsessive, but that's just his personality, lol), which should make this a nice forum to be a part of. I feel very lucky that this place has started right around when I started playing DFO :D

    I see a good money making opportunity. Opening up a popcorn stall at DFO Source Spam forum so that people have something to eat while watching the drama!

    I'm going to stick around for sure, because this site is like a concentration of the cool people.

    Still going to be at DFOs because of the mod duties though. I don't abandon ship halfway through.

    I'm glad you finally went through with this, LHC. I too tired of dealing with Internal Server Errors, high-profile trolling and Dom's relative disinterest.

    I'll do my best to keep this place lively. I hope everyone else will do the same.
