Uh Vivendi is no longer in control of Spyro I think they gave them to Krome Studios because when i Played ANB it said Krome Studios and that was wierd. It also said ANB, Copyright Krome Studios.

So vivendi gave them to krome studios

like when Insomaniac gave Spyro to Vivendi.

What next?

Krome studios give to what?

So Krome Studios is god or horror of this site

As I conclude my posting here, I wish to leave you with a few thoughts. First, in my experience , once a mod or admin leave thier position, they lose thier capacity to make high-level decisons. While I now know that the decision to close actually had some measure of support, if left to the board, it would have gone nowhere. once you left Cocho, you and the other admins lost your authority as admins and became senior posters, nothing more.
-
Regardless of whether you were an admin in the past, at this time you had no authority to close this place. While after further reflection I can see some logic in your reasoning (we were here first, so we know this place better), you went about it the wrong way. You should have included me and Spyro in this, as we were the SFAdmin and SFAssistant at the time, and the future of the forum concerned us . If you really felt the forum was dead, you should have closed it in January, and have done with it. By leaving, you gave up any decisonmaking authority except as a regular member, that goes for everyone who left.
-
Now, I will admit that my bashing of TTE crossed a line, but you must look at it from my perspective. this was a place I enjoyed visiting, and had every right to expect that it would continue to operate. TTE's decision and his announcement of it were sudden and his reasoning for imposing it was insulting. No one likes to be called a moron or an idiot, and to be honest, TTE's posting become more aand more deragatory over the past few days, which resulted in my deletion of some of his posts. I did that because that was an unabashed attack on other posters, which violated the Constitution, several clauses of it no less. I did read the Constitution, but I probably was the only "rookie" member to do so seriously.
-
Regardless, this decision was not suported by the majority of posters as the responses to this thread will attest. Even granting that there were 5 or 6 former admins who supported closing this place, enough people replied to exceed that number. but you made a decision based on the votes of at the maximum of 8-9 people, and did not inform the rest of the forum of this impendsing decision. Regardless of your personal opinion of us, common decency and fair play called for fair warning and prior notice, so we could put in our opinion and have a say. That you didn't give us that speaks volumes, and you should be ashamed of yourself.
-
You may have forced us out, but you have created an incredible amount of ill-will for you. If you don't care about Spyro, fine. But the majority of posters here did, and to call us "newbies" is insulting. Granted, many of us did not grow up with the game, but have since played the original trilogy. There is almost no dispute that the recent games are not on the same level as the original, far from it actually. But you seem to have forgotten that many of us play the games to be entertained, first and foremost. I imagine that you founded this forum on the same principle, to have fun discussing the game and playing it. Your comments suggest you have "outgrown" the game, and now you can state "ANB sucks" without even having played it. Your younger selves would not recognize you.
-
You use a "expert" review, when those reviews only give good marks to games that are challenging for high-skilled videogame players. This remains a child's game, and even though younger players are the primary target, older players can still play, and nod and wink to references to previous games and situations. You can't close your mind to new games, while deifying the originals. Yes they were good, but never on the level of the best Mario or Zelda games.
-
But I digress. I am leaving now, and leaving behind a place where I met some new friends, and contributed my part to a community. TTE, Concho, and all the other former admins, you have sucessfully closed the forum, and showed a bevy of negative attributes that would not long be tolerated on other boards. To list two, disdain for the opinion of other posters and a propensity to insult and demean posters who have not been here as long as you. In order for a board to run effectively, ALL opinions must be heard and addressed, regardless of what the owner or mods or admins personally think. This did not happen here, rather you banded together in a small band and imposed your will on the rest of us, without giving us any avenues to redress our grievances. This is the first time I have ever left a forum like this, while I have visited other boards that collapsed, those died due to lack of activity. This is the first time I have been , in effect kicked out of a forum, and while there is a first time for everything, this was not something I expected or wanted. And I'm not alone in that. Goodbye to this forum, and to you all. But know this, TTE and Cocho,you will never be allowed on any future Spyro forum I frequent,and moderate. I will not forget , and I have a very long memory. farewell.

Psst, SpyroFriend, some linebreaks would be good to boost your clarity...

I agree with most of your post, but don't waste database space on banning anyone - they won't care once we've left here.


Just wondering, though, TTE, why you felt so compelled to return here when you had apparantly "moved on". There was nothing actually keeping you here.
Just as you have "moved on" from Spyro, this forum had "moved on" from its old values, its old structure, and its old admins... it had moved on from you. As such, not you, nor I, nor any of the founding members had any right to decide to kill it - a forum that had outgrown the Old poicies.

I must say I am deeply shocked at your brutality and amorality in this matter. I would never have thought it from you.

You have no say in how my "will" is. It's definitly stronger than yours, compared to what crap I've been through in life...and how sad it is for you to try to compare it to how I like and dislike a GAME. If anything, my younger self would be thanking me, and steer more towards playing the better games and going to college than worry over a forum. And, HEY, I've done that. Good for me.
And no, the expert critics in XPlay go by all boundaries. They don't just rate games that are hard for kids. They review ALL KINDS OF GAMES. They reviewed AHT and gave it a 2 out of 5, basically because it wasn't how it was suppose to be, like the original games. So, logically, they gave 1 out of 5 ofr ANB because IT'S NOT SPYRO.

...*plays the world's smallest violin* And it's a foruuuuum. Get over it. And, oh wow, I won't be allowed on your forum--I bet you were from Neoseekers before coming here. It isn't really a loss to me. Least you spelled Cocho right this time.

All the decent arguments we put forward, and now... this.

Argh, Spyro! (or should I say : D?)

lol nice undercover Spammin' there " : D" Hmm I think I want my last post on this forum to be something to remember me by....sooooooo....here it goes......

Here's a llama
There's a llama
And another little llama
Fuzzy llama
Funny llama
Llama llama duck

Llama llama cheesecake llama
Tablet brick potato llama
Llama llama mushroom llama
Llama llama duck

I was once a treehouse
I lived in a cake
But I never saw the way
The orange slayed the rake
I was only three years dead
But it told a tale
And now listen, little child
To the safety rail

Did you ever see a llama
Kiss a llama on the llama
Llama's llama tastes of llama
Llama llama duck

Half a llama, twice the llama
Not a llama farmer llama
Llama in a car
Alarm a llama llama duck

Is that how it's told now?
Is it all so old?
Is it made of lemon juice?
Doorknob ankle cold
Now my song is getting thin
I've run out of luck
Time for me to retire now
And become a duck

Ahhhhhhh the Llama song cheesy

What kept me here was that I made it. It's like how my parents keep annoying me and calling me every five seconds to make sure I'm doing what they want.


And the way I did it was correcting what I failed to do earlier. I should have killed it in January, but I waited too long. I let too many people, who wouldn't know the real Spyro if he flamed their ass, sway me into bringing in new admins.


In reality, making a NEW SFA would have been the best thing then, too, instead of letting this one go through about six months of inactivity before ANB-crazed "fans" came in and began throwing Mary Sues at everyone. Maybe then I would have admitted that I was wrong about Spyro.


Or not. Probably still would've been against ANB, though I wouldn't know whether or not it'd come out yet.


Plus, hey, maybe if I'd locked up SFA then, Vivendi wouldn't get free advertising and some people might not have bought it.


I'm sure some of you know, two years ago I would have loved for the Spyro series to continue on forever, reaching its tenth, fifteenth, twentieth anniversaries, still going strong. And now... It can't end fast enough. Spyro hasn't even hit his tenth anniversary, that's not until September of 2008, and I loathe the series and its fans.


Also, whateverRiderPDX, Vivendi STILL OWNS SPYRO. They're not so stupid that they'd sell him, he's making them too much money!
