Amigaworld.net what is going on over there?

Visited Amigaworld for the first time in a while.
What has happened to that forum, it seems like it has descended to be the new moobunny? Quite sad.

It does seem to have a negative theme.

Yes, it has that kind of feel. I started posting a bit there on topics that I found interesting, but conversations quickly go downhill.

I think part of it's driven by the lack of concrete progress with anything AmigaOS related (all flavours). They're so bored that they seem to be passing the time by trolling each other.

One interesting thing that I noticed years ago, is the different forum "cultures" that seem to have developed. The same person may be polite on one forum, and condescending on another, depending completely on what the dominant behaviour is on that forum.

Amigaworld, sadly, has been taken over by trolls, many of them very hostile towards OS4. The attacks are often mean and personal. There's no use posting there any more, or reading it for that matter.

This is what you get when a forum is completely unmoderated.

This is just like television, only you can see much further.

Yes seems a shame, used to be a pleasant “any flavour” Amiga forum.
It needs a heavy dose of moderation.

Well, this site is on topic, don’t see any point dragging drama over here, Amigaworld is mess already, you can’t stay on topic, or if you do it loopback to the start, its pointless place. Anyhow only thing worth doing there trying to debunk some of the conspiracy theories. Let the site implode.

Anyhow every debate that has been debated has been debated, every subject twitched and turned, there a lot left, its in now old married couple phase, everyone has grown tired of each other.

Yeh, this site has grown, thanks to the impossible nature of Amigaworld, can’t say that’s a bad thing.

Totally agree.In fact in many times,they trying to bore me and seems pathetic to post there.And the threads never positive,always trolling and making fun of the absurd.There is one membre that I have on my point blank.Never to mention here.Absurd.

That's why I am here now without doubt the best Amiga forum that is here.

But AmigaWorld is on my heart since 2006...Now no on 2022.

Hope a new ray can illuminate them again...and again

Seems that Trevor doesn't care about this much while he's attending Amiga conferences like Amiga 37 in Germany.

IMHO, it is chaos of the worst kind. No one is in charge and there is no moderation. There is a bored group of people trolling each other and spamming every thread with nonsense.

Very discouraging for members who actually care about polite discussion.

Trevor is an enthusiast, a great supporter, and provides the necessary social glue in the community. But don't expect him to stand up and manage things - that's not what he does. I believe that he actually hates the day-to-day management chores, that's why he has other people to do them.

I have tried, several times, to get in contact with an aw.net moderator, since I would like to help with moderation and furhter development of the site. But if I ever get a reply from any one, it's always the same, that the person is no longer doing any moderation. Sad really, since the site was really good, but as many of you have stated, it has been taken over by trolls..

The 'reading' part is not entirely true. There's an occasional worthwhile posting (like Robert Bernardo's Amiwest videos), so I do find myself checking in from time to time, just in case.

Yes, but instead of searching for the occasional gem among the chaff, I prefer to read amiga-news.de - their coverage of all things Amiga is wonderful.

Have the same feeling. Amigas should be fun as it used to be in work. (30+ years ago;) There is this "friend" who complains on that forum. No place where no comment.. Should get a dayjob.

Fun like having tens of Amigas and about 10 year old two girls and we play some classics and draw with DPIV.

Somebody have an idea what to do with the A1XE as it's collecting dust?

That's because of everything. And because they have yet to ban all of the trolls with all of the accounts they own, and because they allow people to create bogus polls, and because they allow people to discuss dogs, cars, cats, moms, religion, politics, and whatever else may offend one or another group, and because they allow topics that are clearly not in any way sane to be shown on the front page, and because there is nothing new on the forum, and because the news does not appear when you post news items for a very long period.

It has the potential to be a good place again, but it will take 2-3 moderators wielding hammers to ban trolls, then cleaning up a forum from gazillions of unrelated Amiga topics, updating the forum engine and related parts, and making registration not be so simple that any bot can create an account and start spamming, i.e., it will require the normal care of someone.

Aw.net is now Aeon's property, and they will most likely need to pay the moderator/site-handler worker from Amiga Camp who is willing to do so because the volunteers appear to be tired.

As it stands, amigaworld.net is not a unified amiga forum for all amiga flavors anymore, which you should make clear to anyone interested in joining. Instead, when it comes to OS 4, we have amigans.net, which you shouldn't be shy to show to anyone and which welcomes any interested amigaOS NG users today and is the only place where you can get all the help you need.
