Title: Another help channel gone sourceforge.net
Post by: ]-[êll.Ôñ.ËÀR'][']-[. on December 01, 2006, 08:20:59 pm
just had this msg come up whilest browsing at    http://mxcontrol.sourceforge.net/

Site closed
I don't like the way the project developed after my leaving. MXControl was intended to be free and open to anyone. The change to a "must register" community is not compatible with that goal.

That's why I decided to close down the site. You can download the entire software set created by MXControl by following this link.

Sincerly, Bender
- The Project master and god of MXControl :-)

so looks like the demise of yet another usefull help site  :(

...that place died a long time ago, and when we thought it might be reborn it ended up in a restricted access forum with no downloads on it (and a whole set of excuses for how a forum run by so many sourceforge hosted projects doesn't work on sourceforge... or "i can't be bothered to read the documentation" as it's also known)

Perhaps a proper library could be set up here for metis scripts or something like ....i no theres a few scripts in the bots section but there jumbled up all over the place wouldnt it be better to set up something here just for metis as so many hosts on winmx seem to use this bot now and would be a good way to encourage new users to this forum   :idea:

Actually we're already working on that :D

We have created a whole section for Metis and any scripts/games etc.
For now we're collecting scripts anybody might have saved there and might later have some kind of database to look through them.
Just give us some time to find the best way how to do this ;)

For now anyone that wishes to post 'working' scripts from the MXControl site please do so.. so that they are not lost.. we can then get them from those threads to upload to any future libraries or database..

Lets all make sure all those wonderful scripts are not lost..

we have lost alot, 100's of scripts, as well as the help from the other sections, i have a few scripts i use on my site and have posted some here already, we will rebuild what we had, it was a blow for us, but we will rise to the challenge the same as we have done before and no doubt will do again.

and have posted some here already

Some? :P
Why not put then in one thread called metis scripts or something ?
Then it willl be easier to browse through it as well, instead of numerous topics

(My suggestion)

Cheers :P

the "new posts since last visit" thing is a *small* problem... yeh we certainly do need a separate thing for them outside of the forum... lol

lol, you think that's bad, i came to the site and suddenly found new sections and was like "wtf?" and we went and started discussing it... then while we were discussing it the sections started breeding like rabbits and every time i refreshed there were more sections and in the end i just gave up refreshing... lol
