I heard someone say that it was, is that true?
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

Life support.

Sesq's rather in-and-out of late, ditto GalEmp, but things are getting done regardless.

Well,I think it's dead.

Major campaigns not having a spurt of activity for a while does not mean they're dead. Every single campaign with a forum and has not shown screenies for a period of time, I swear to God, gets these same old "Is it dead??" posts. Rather irritating, especially for the staff.

A big campaign demands a lot of work, and people do have Real Life and other projects to attend to as well.

Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.

Very true.

Here's a counter point. When these projects announce themsleves and release hype about what they are going to do, they get people exited. That brings the project the attention they wanted. But if the project doesn't continiue to feed hype and eyecandy to its subjects, they will get agitated. Its a waiting game for the fans. Not knowing what is going on with something you're eagerly expecting can be difficult to bear.

I see three solutions:

1. Shut up about your revolutionary campaing. Work in a dark, damp cellar and be pleased that no annoyin fanbois are rattling your cage.
2. Be that attention whore. Shower your loyal subjects with screens and vids. Make them drool so much they have to consume 10 liters of water in a day if the wish to stay alive.
3. Do both, but be prepared occasionally reassure your fans that you are still on the saddle.

You know... I think the two things are equal. Whining "Is it dead?", and an arrogant "It's done when it's done". Respect goes both ways.
It's not like the Goa'uld could reign without the Jaffa... Right?

DISCLAIMER: I dont mean anything by this post. I just stumbled upon an active discussion about dying and wrote something I already forgot.

I am.

I'm seriously having doubts about SA's status at the moment. Sesq and GE have disappeared, Phreak doesn't seem to be checking the forum anymore. I could, I suppose, technically just do the whole thing on my own, but it would not be the campaign it was meant to be, both in terms of Sesq's vision and it being much more no-frills.

GE always disappears over the summer.  I'm sure he'll be back as a regular in the fall.

As for Sesq, that's less certain.  IIRC he said he'd be done with his thesis at the end of July (or maybe August).

I posted here because this subforum,for over a month,no one said "No it isn't".
That's strange to me.

You are not on the staff, so you have no authority to say whether the campaign is dead or not.

I don't come here for having fights with other members, so calm down.
I've already explained it,I thinked this project was dead just because for a long period I noticed what I said before. see down here
I'd like to see some SA members posting here as say something. That's all.

God, is SA dead? I see that the forum error a LONG time ago has halted your progress. Since then I have seen progress drop. Is anything going on in internal or is it dead? And I think that you should use some other ship other than the Warlock. I'm sick of 'if there's a Tanen, there must be a Warlock' business. :doubt:

To answer your question, Snail, people are busy. The staff is trying to work on it, but they've got other deadlines at the moment (Sesq's thesis, Goober's ST: R). It'll get done.

Ngtm1r and I are both on staff, and we have both posted in this thread.  Is that not good enough for you?

This is a warning.  If you continue to be obnoxious then you'll be banned for a week.

Since you're a n00b, and may not understand why, I'll even spell it out for you.  You are doing what is generally known as trolling, or in other words, making inflammatory posts in the hopes of provoking a response.  This will not be tolerated.  If you want to be a member of this forum, you'll need to learn a little netiquette.
