DOOMWORLD it is a changin'... what's your take?

Recommended Posts

So Ling's gone, Lut's back, big staff changes all over, the questions I got are:

1. What do you think of all this? Your general opinion please....

2. What direction do YOU think DW should be headed in?

3. What could be done to make this place better, to revitalize the community?

4. What (if anything) is wrong with DW right now?

5. What should be avoided at all costs?

1. I think it's great

2. I think Julian needs to do interviews and stuff like that.

3. Hmm...contests.

4. Lack of features.

5. Lack of news posts, heh.

1. The new FAQ is much better. Other than that, I didn't notice any real changes yet (besides a few staff changes).
2. More good hosted sites are always nice.
3. Doom 3 should take care of this.
4. No problems here.
5. 640x480 animated avatars that take an hour to load, even on cable modems.

1. I wish Ling was here, and I missed L(toolazytofigureoutthekeys)t a lot so I'm glad hes back. I just wished Ling never left, and deadnail should come back.
2. I think it should be the way it is. As far as I can tell, everyone seems satisfied with it. IMO, this is the most that can be expected.
3. I don't know what more could be available.
4. Nothing.
5. Drastic layout changes.

I do not think that anyone would have the nerve to make any drastic changes. They simply love this place too much to dare that.

I trust the new staff as much as I did with the old.

And yes, we need another contest of sorts. They really liven the place up.

Perhaps we will have a surge of new features and stuff as the new leaders try to assert themselves.

The new staff aren't that new in reality.

I hope Ling will stay as a regular user.

Hey, when you gotta go you gotta go. I'm sure we'll all miss Ling, but it's good that Lut came back too.

2. What direction do YOU think DW should be headed in?
The way it is now!


3. What could be done to make this place better, to revitalize the community?
*cough* host my site.... <<ahem>> BBG has a good idea, I think there should be different kinds of contests too like the 10-sector map contest kind of thing, e.g. gun to use most frames ever in a mod, first map to have all zdoom special features at the same time, and have them by a deadline. That would be fun!

4. What (if anything) is wrong with DW right now?
Ling left! The forums are good, the ftp server is great, the community is alive, etc. One BIG problem though: many of the sites hosted by doomworld have been abandoned, whether it was recently or LOOOOOOOONG ago. Get rid of those sites(with permission of course, if possible the person even exists at the same e-mail anymore).

5. What should be avoided at all costs?
Changing how DoomWorld looks. Changing the full orientation towards doom.


And that's my 10 cents.

1. Ha-did-a-lee-ppy with it all except Lings departation. Mods and Admins are good and the Post Hell sounds are neato.

2. Well, quite frankly I dunno, but hopefully positive

3.Well, contests, and, hmmm, well, thats all I can think of thats logical.

4. Me :D

5. Me :D

There should be a REVIEWS forum, or something like that for instant reviews on your map or mod!

That would be impossible.

Why, pray tell?

Granted, I think the forums we have now pretty much cover all the bases. Just post a link in Wads & Mods and ask for a review.

Ling left; so sad. But life goes on, can't stay sad forever. :)

2. What direction do YOU think DW should be headed in?
What it's doing now; keeping DOOM alive, and to welcome in the new DOOM 3.

3. What could be done to make this place better, to revitalize the community?
Less idiots.
Option for slightly larger avatars after a certain # of posts. (Damn unlikely though.)

4. What (if anything) is wrong with DW right now?
n00b frads. What else?
DooM Anomaly pitifully attempting to be a frad. :P

5. What should be avoided at all costs?
All the retarded shit in others' forums.

All in all, it'll be refreshing for a little difference in DW. We knew Ling couldn't stay forever didn't we?

There is even a bigger and more shocking change on the horizon.
If everything goes right, you'll all be blown away. BLOWN AWAY.

Frankly, the occasional kick in the pants like this is good for the community. Believe it or not.

1. What do you think of all this? Your general opinion please....

It’s nice to have Lüt back I suppose... and as long as Mordeth and Julian are still around this place should keep it’s old charm. And hay, Ling hasn’t completely buggered off.

2. What direction do YOU think DW should be headed in?

Forwards not backwards, sideways not forwards, and always twirling twirling twirling towards freedom :P

3. What could be done to make this place better, to revitalize the community?

sticking with the current forum formula.

4. What (if anything) is wrong with DW right now?

the fact that I' not a supermod :P

5. What should be avoided at all costs?

IF WE EVER ALLOW IMAGES IN SIGNATURES THERE WILL BE BLOOD ON THE WALLS.(probably my own).

I agree that the hosted sites need a little pruning. There's quite a bit of dead wood there. Maybe once my deathmatch level review site gets a little further developed I'll see if I can get it hosted here...

Oh man, things couldn't be better. I can actually come out of hiding and post stuff now without Ling being there to post hell it no matter what it is. And this probably also means no more assholes hanging around doing whatever they want just because of old friendship with leaders of the site.

2. What direction do YOU think DW should be headed in?


I like the direction it's heading now.

3. What could be done to make this place better, to revitalize the community?


Release Millennium :P

4. What (if anything) is wrong with DW right now?


Afterglow isn't banned yet.

5. What should be avoided at all costs?


Giving people positions of power, letting them get away with stuff etc. just because they're so-called "vets."
