Had a quick talk with Engberg today, and he told me to spread the news. The URL is slightly different, and there is no link on the current DRC corporate site. He says he doesn't know if that will change.

http://forums.drcsite.org/index.php

When I asked him how Cate still felt about the 'protest', he mentioned Cate planning some sort of 'small consequences'... but he seemed reluctant to talk about it. From the way he said it, it sounds like she's wanting to lay down some ground rules. Not sure how far she plans on taking it though.

I'd post a chatlog, but I didn't think to start one, and it wasn't a long conversation anyway.

Thanks for telling :-)

That's a bad thing about the chat system, you always need to acivate it before things happen. I won't be forced to do a manual start of the chatlog every time I log on! Can't it be done automatically during startup? Else I will post a request (actually think I already did it).

DRC liaisons forum section is gone... :(

Here's Engberg's post:

If you're reading this, you're obviously aware that I've put the DRC Forums back up.

There is no link to them from the new corporate site. I'm not sure if that will change at some point in the future, but that is the way it will stay at least for now.

I also had to make several compromises in order to get Cate to agree to allow the forums to return. You'll continue to see changes to the rules and policies governing these forums as those changes are put into effect over the next few weeks.

The first change that most will be happy about is that Cate has approved the hiring of a few new ResEngs as full-time moderators rather than relying on ResEngs who were already swamped with other tasks trying to moderate as time allowed. The new ResEngs will likely be hired early next week. Please be on your best behavior in the meantime.

Thanks,

Michael Engberg

A very good compromise, IMO. Moderators coming, excellent.

this is a good compromise, and I hope we live up to it.
~~~

On second thought... looking... I'm dissapointed. I was hoping they'd make the old forums available as an archive, but wait to start new forums until a clear moderating system and rules (both IC and OOC) were in place.

*shrug*

My suggestion:

Regarding the OOC section, I suspect that might become the subject of one of Cate's forthcoming edicts. Before that happens I would like to suggest that the OOC section be placed under a usergroup so those who are not interested do not have to see it. And those who are, can just enable it for themselves.

I also call for moderated enforcement of the IC forums.

Besdies those two things and the makeover, it should be fine.

Your wish is Engberg's command!

Just a suggestion that we ultimately are the ones who dangle from our own chains of inference. In just the two quotes above, a 4-link chain has been manufactured. ;)

Seeing the reaction on this forum ie closing all IC threads by the moderators, i think i have to agree with you......

Excuse me?

This is an OOC forum. Full stop.

Whilst the IC forums, the DRC forums, were unavailable, the powers that be were kind enough to allow IC threads on here - something that I think was a big mistake.

Now that the IC forums are open again, too darn right all IC threads should be locked!

For flip's sake, people complained that the forums were closed. They're now open, and people still complain? Give it a break!

Yeah, you have a point... They shouldn't just clutter the off-topic... I mean, they're not even off-topic (they're talking about Uru Live), so why did we put them there? :roll:
