    Whatever has been going on, most of TDW's actions have brought only damages on the hive's behalf and gain on his own personal domain. And for hell, karawasa, i'm PMing you my gmail, as i bet if he reads this stuff i write i will be banned.

    And why did the RP section have to be shut down NOW? Just when the hive is like a volcano. It doesn't make any sense and I hope TDW will explain it..

    What explanation? I closed it because of innactiveness? THE HIVE IS FREAKIN GETTING INNACTIVE BECAUSE OF HIM! I bet then he'll have a reason to merge the whole hive with his site.

    There are other, far more inactive forums... And anyway, how does closing a forum BENEFIT the staff? In anyway, shape or form. I can't comprehend it! :mad:
    There is no pros... Only cons.

    Check Battleforums.com I was staff member there and it was as big as the hive, with games CS, D2, SCBW, War3, now SC2. I am still Premium Member that the guys decided to give me for being one of the oldest members from 2003 and Former Staff - this is what I mean that some older members could get a little present here in the HiveWorkshop but Noooooooooo. And I left it years ago cause it became like 10 active persons even less - so dead now.

    I do not see a reason this forum should stay anymore

    - making stuff for a dead game such as war3 - hardly - it starts losing its point, especially people coming to start War3... wtf lol?
    - moving to sc2 - obviously not an option here, like someone said it's not the staff, it's the lazyness of people to learn smth slightly harder or because they don't wanna buy a game, the few people that did something aka Rui and DSG, have been disallowed to do so and develop this place in this direction - GO join SC2 Devoted places!
    - making it an ARTSY forum - pics, videos, anims and 'Zomg great work' - WHY? Go JOIN DEVIANTART - better choice
    - and with some Staff promoting their SITE - affiliated or not, who gives a damn fuck if it is affiliated, it is still Advertising - you basically say - move out of THW

    yep move out indeed, let's close this place

    I really think you should stop fucking try and kill this forum. Everyone does not share your point of view, even if it seems to me that you would very much like it to be so. If there are more or less no users at all hanging around here, it doesn't matter, if it would only be 10 users using this forum; Why should YOU stop them from doing that? Give people their own choices, your opinion is not the true one.
    Everyone does not see Wc3 as dead as you claim it to be. Especially Ralle from what I've seen, he does very much like this forum to stay open, even if it is the smallest of smallest community that spends their time here. As he has stated (even in this thread, that he does not consider Wc3 dead at all), now let him decide about what to do with the site.
    You are very much free to state your opinion about this, but you've already done that far too many times in all kinds of different threads. We all know what you think of it. And as long as you simply state your opinion it is alright, but cut out the crap with trying to get people to follow you. There is no commitment here for you to stay.

    This thread is about the direction, I am offering a direction (even if my suggestion is a one way ticked to a chasm). I am ontopic, saying which direction is wrong, they can do whatever the hell they want, I am only suggesting. I do not need anyone to follow me just 1-2 persons if they want (I do not care eventually). So bug off please, I will say whatever and as many times as I want.
