Hey guys, please stop the bitching and welcome all the J+ members that will eventually turn up, like myself. Yeah there's been negatives. But there's that is everywhere. I choose to ignore all that and have a good time anywhere. But coming here and seeing some J+ bashing is sending out the wrong message, especially this is and will most likely be the first thread we visit before fully integrating.

So hi again (I registered ages ago but never committed here, not due to preference but out of familiarity.) Hope everybody is well. Looking forward to the new experience.

Now why can't real wumenz be like cartoon wumenz?

Most of the people who are bashing left so because of certain admin decisions either affecting themselves personally or people they know.

It will be a shame if the offer of hosting here is not taken up as there were some genuinely helpful threads.

I was more than happy to use both sites and met more people in the hobby in the process.
Only differences I found was this came across as a forum for people collecting older games and with less rules.

If a mod wants to lock the thread and start a new One once more details are known about what help or support can be done to intergrate the two then that’s fine, that way it can be kept clean and polite about anything that’s gone on in the past.

Thanks

This, for quite a few people in a small community to have a grievance shows something was being done badly.

It's all in the past as far as I am concerned - although my own personal grievance was very minor in comparison to some other peoples

I would imagine that those people don't give much thought to it nowadays, and also a lot of those affected don't even use this forum anymore.

There will be no ill feeling towards any J+ member that joins, and they will be welcomed like anyone else I am sure

Nah, it's not our way to lock a thread where people are having their say.   Obviously please keep it respectful if you can (and I've not seen anything not so far).   

For my part it's all water under the bridge and pretty much ancient history now.  I know for a lot of people it's still pretty raw and that's OK, people deal with things in their own way/time. 

As for possible integration/backup, Alpha1 has made the offer on J+ I believe.  If we hear something back then we'll look at all options and would seek your (the UKVAC members) input on solutions, but for now it's out of our hands.   Dsyde is obviously looking at various options, I'm sure he's had offers to help/take over the site since he's made his announcement.   It's up to him to choose how he want's to proceed.  If we can help we will, if not that's fine.

As already stated any/all J+ members are welcome here and always have been.

Dan

So, its:

- stop bitching
- stop J+ bashing
- stop the negativity
- welcome all the J+ members

Thanks for that.

Are you offering anything at all in return?

Seriously - this thread couldn't be clearer that J+ members will be made welcome. I see concerns about integrating J+ content, but not much else that's 'negative' and nothing that's 'bitching'.

J+ closing is a disaster. I'd much rather it stayed up and running for many years to come.
It's only original once.

Yes, it did seem fairly reserved comments made so far.

No idea what other forums are like, but it's all got to be less wild than the performance car forums, considering what we're actually doing as a hobby - a fight here would feel like a brawl in a tearoom

I haven't had the chance to offer anything in return yet have I, as I've only just migrated. Also it was what I thought would be some helpful advice for us neutrals only just coming in. "Hey guys" only referred to the ones that were being negative And I did say "some J+ bashing" not a blanket statement "J+ bashing" regarding the thread. I also said "hi" and hoped that everybody is well. As I know it's a partial welcoming thread... In that regard, I actually offered a greeting already... If a greeting isn't good for a (re)introduction... I dunno what is. A video of me on my hands and knees, yodelling oh great negativity be thy name, thy J+ bashing come, who art thou mighty tb lilley, may thou praise thee, amen? Nah... That's reserved for the wife..

Any forum closing is a bad thing. I'd offer to take it on myself however I struggle to find time to maintain AO let alone a totally unknown entity.

I don't have a J+ login, is it closing because of time, money or both?

Welcome to all who are joining. Sorry to see j+ is closing but i hope that everyone can continue to joke, trade and support each other on here.

Hmmm...it IS a good game, but it needs more cowboys...

I'm sorry to see it go but looking forward to coming here more often than I currently do. Sometimes, things just happen for the best anyway and it will be nice to have everything in one place.

Looking forward to meeting some new people!

Bang it in the AO wiki. If you need to bulk upload images LMK

I'd suggest we need to wait and see what happens and what Julian decides.  Obviously by all means back up what you can for good measure!   I'm sure he's keen to preserve the content one way or another and this is the sort of thing that by the sounds of it does need saving.  

It is without a doubt that there is some content on J+ worth preserving - even if it's in just a read only mode.   For example the tech section has a lot of good info from 2004 - 2010 when J+ was really the only game in town while UKVAC was on it's hiatus.  There's even a few nuggets in there from me I'm sure :)  As I mentioned before if it were to happen we'd consult you guys first as to how it would work, where it would go, etc.

Arcade collecting is a funny thing.   If you get 6 VAC collectors on a internet forum you'll end up with a flame war within a week.   Put those same 6 people in a room full of old games (and usually beer) and you'll end up with 6 friends for life...
