So, you're telling us that you know nothing about hosting or making web sites, but you're giving us a very forceful and caustic rant on why you're right?
marathon should not fall into the same hole that myth did a long time ago. look what happened to myth because of those guys at fileball. agreed? we have all become complacent because fileball was always there even with its paranoid setup, the fact that nothing shows up in google searches, the fact that its administration is a collection of right-wingnuts always complaining about someone taking something away from them and how special they are and how much the world owes them for hosting a bunch of files.
I've never really seen the admins at Fileball saying anything about how "special" they are. I admit it, I don't like Frigidman, but we owe him for maintaining that site for so long, no matter the monetary cost. If he feels it's time to can it, who are you to condemn him? You make the hosting of these absolutely priceless
files seems like the most important thing in the world, and at the same time you portray the Fileball people as assholes for doing the very same thing you think is the holiest of holies, taking care of these "marathon historical archives."
You can't find the files by searching on Google? Are you that lazy? There's a very versatile search function on the site itself, and you won't have to deal with the millions of irrelevant results that Google might spew out.
well i guess gary is okay even though he's a right-winger who hates the french, probably because like a lot of people who watch fox news he has never been out of the USA, poor guy.
I have my own problems with BattleCat, but his political affiliation isn't one of them. Stuff like that has nothing to do with the game itself. And, what's more, I repsect Gary; he's a veteran of the Vietnam War, which is more than I can say for myself, and probably more than you can say, too.
You really seem to know it all. Considering that the Bungie Archives were replaced
by Fileball, and that Claude, the guy who ran the Archives, is a Fileball admin himself, I'm certain that this idea is worthless. Especially since everyone on Fileball (which includes Claude) is such a bastard.
I don't know if you're actually a real, honest person, or if you're a troll. Either way, please leave this forum. There are people working on solutions to the Fileball issue, and trust me, they're being way more productive than you are. If all you can contribute to Marathon is a series of shitty posts, you might find a good home in the Pigeon Lounge.
To everyone else:
These posts (mine and "Old Ball's" especially) are way off-topic. I think an admin ought to split them off. Screamingfool had a good idea with the topic lock anyway.
Sorry I had to butt in on something as stupid as this, but come on.
