I don't really love to say this, but... IMO, if Diaspora remained private until Shattered Armistice was nearing completion, things would be better.
Bollocks. While most of the team are from within the community neither eldain, nor skull leader would have heard of this project, applied, and joined the team. Furthermore there are at least five or six prospectives who would never have heard of us either.
We went public in part cause we needed the PR to get us new team members. That's not the only reason but it should be enough.
I have never liked the mass invasion of BSG fans and BSG-related discussions here on HLP. This site is about FreeSpace, and there are plenties of campaigns and mods that deserve some attention.
This site is NOT about Freespace. HLP became an FS2_Open engine site long ago. Yes there is a large focus on FS2 but that isn't what this site is about by a long way. As for people discussing BSG, if the team don't mind, why should you care? And there most definitely has been discussion of SW on the FotG board and B5 on the TBP board.
Quite frankly it's rather two faced to come on here complaining about the content when you're saying the board shouldn't even be public because we shouldn't have announced our existence. You could simply not come onto this board. Then as far as you are concerned, Diaspora and Shattered Armistice hasn't been announced and doesn't exist. You can have what you want if you just exercise a little willpower.
Actually this last post of yours has decided me. Diaspora does not exist for you. You are to pretend it doesn't exist and if I ever see you post on any other thread other than to reply to this post until the day I tell you you can, I'm monkeying you for a month. I'll give you right of reply because I don't believe in censorship but even that only stretches as far as a explanation for why you've decided to come on here and say something as stupid as your last couple of posts.
