I just got the word of a great new Amiga portal. AmigaWorld.net is a website similar to Amiga.org sans the flaming. Yes I said without the flaming, is this still possible within the Amiga community?! That would be fab don't you think so? :)

That depends on what it was saying, doesn't it?

No secret was made about MorphZone.org being run by people involved with Amiga.org too (namely Targhan). Since both Targhan and Wayne live in the same US state it would make economic and administrative sense if the same server was used for both domains.

This does not mean the server is owned by Genesi nor does it mean that Amiga.org has become a MorphOS site.

I suspect that like you, Alkemyst tried to tie in all sorts of implications into two domains sharing the same server.

As for impartiality and objectivity, I'll take the Wayne Hunt variety over the Mike Bouma variety any day of the week.

@amigaworld.net owners

Nice web-site, Wrong domain-name!

You should call it amigaincworld.net instead!

By the definition of "AmigaWorld", it should include anything in the known Amiga zone (Classic Amiga, Pegasos/MOS, AROS, AmigaOne/AOS)...

Amiga != Amiga Inc.

<i>It has all of that</i>

So I see, even the first news item is a news item for a game on
MorphOS. What's the definition of this? Hypocrite? Why yes, I
believe it is.. Come to AmigaWorld.net, and get away from MorphOS!
<b>NOT!</b> Looks to me like it's a thinly veiled guise to attract
visitors.

AmigaWorld.net guys: your site looks really, really, nice. You don't
need to do this sort of thing. If you continually run a class-act,
people will make a home there without the scare tactics. If you do
continue to use scare-tactics, people will eventually get bored.

I have to say I agree. That site is for remmebrance of old glorious days. Who cares if history has to be rewritten in a way right people look Heroic in their efforts and all failures are just minor incidents caused by evil outsiders. :)

Yes you can talk about anything.. See this new thread for example.
http://amigaworld.net/modules/news/article.php?storyid=275
(I have seen 5 comments in it thile posting this)

And that _steve_ is Admin there.

Funniest thing in their comments are that they are making jokes of recent Mos game ports cause they are based to old games (true) and uncomparable to current PC versions (most likely true) while totally ignoring couple more important issues..

A) There are no OS4 yet.
B) There are NO games for OS4 at all, nor there will be anytime soon.
C) Neither of these new systems (Mos and Os4)aren't anytime soon reach user base for making totally *NEW* and up-to-date game.

But apparently these small real world realities does not bother them at all. Nor the fact that their greatest heroes (Hyperion) has done this exactly same thing all the time, porting 5-year old games. :)

Really they are making jokes about it?

First comment, by me, I don't have MorphOS but I did hear ( on ANN ) there was a PC version so I said I'd try that.

Comment two, by Steve, ah I guess most of the new games for MorphOS are going to be PC ports why should this be any different

Comment three, by me, must have meant Mac ( I can't find a Windows version ) so I'll try that.

Comment four, by the anonymous above I suspect, "if you cant say anything nice don't say anything at all"

Comment five, by me, eh what????

Paraphrased but don't you think you might be blinded by your own prejudice?

Would require a lawsuit to do so, and how would that look for Amiga, Inc to sue Wayne for running a website promoting their product.

Might I point out this section on the ICANN website regarding having a domain name yanked:

All registrars in the .aero, .biz, .com, .coop, .info, .museum, .name, .net, and .org top-level domains follow the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (often referred to as the "UDRP"). Under the policy, most types of trademark-based domain-name disputes must be resolved by agreement, court action, or arbitration before a registrar will cancel, suspend, or transfer a domain name.

You can find this on: http://www.icann.org/udrp/

I understand the code words for intolerance, in it's various guises.

You don't think they're intolerant? Well, hey I can't even get an account on Amigaworld.net, so of course I think they are intolerant! LOL< they are afraid of little ol' me.....

Of course, I could fake an IP address and my name and set up an e-mail, blah blah blah, but I'll respect their wishes and not attempt to get an account. I have my hands full with ann.lu and amiga.org already...I have thought often to even cut one of them out....but I will stay with two sites, for now.

Let the best site win! Quite frankly, I think it will be one of the open sites in a run-a-way.......

And, I agree with those who say amigaworld.net is splitting the community even further...even if they weren't doing exactly that, literally, by bouncing out half the community, it would be unlikely everyone would go to a new site, anyway....this is just a start over again....with less people...

In reply to Comment 87 (a):
for the record,

I have some severe criticism about amigaworld.net, but its more about content and attitude then the actually signing up process. The signing up process is in line with their closed thinking...but I didn't mean to start off on this tangent, though I can admit, I did stear the comments down this tangent. so I will clarify.

I signed up...it wouldn't let me log in that day. I never received any e-mail about signing up. I still can't sign in today. I'm not planning to do any research on this, I have no intention of firing off e-mails to webmasters...its just not that important to me. I am perfectly happy with ann.lu and amiga.org, as a matter of fact, I sometimes think that I should cut down to only one site, instead of two. I have no intention of being a regular on 3 amiga websites.

So, whether or not I could have ultimately obtained an account, I do not know, and may never know. Just for kicks I attempted to log in again, and my nickname is still not active...that was the last attempt...I'm done.

@MarkTime

I'm not trying to be protective of amigaworld or anything, but don't you think
there might be some more probable reason for your account not working, other
than that "the webnmasters don't want me there"? Like a technical problem? Like
you writing in your e-mail incorrectly?

Then again, if you were correct, I agree it would be a bloody scandal. It's just
that my answer-e-mail arrived within seconds of me registering - and even if it
hadn't been so, I just sinmply can not imagine someone at amigaworld taking the
time to sit and check every new [imaginary] *nickname* to identify people they
might not like...
Can you? I mean - really?

>>I just sinmply can not imagine someone at amigaworld taking the

Absolutely, I can imagine it. It's funny and a bit sad too.
Don't forget this is a tiny community, and everyone knows everyone.
I'm not going to suggest that they won't do this, because I clearly believe
they are IN fact capable of doing it.

You live too much in a technical world, perhaps....because this isn't about
doing traces and tracking minute details down...this is a small community
everyone knows everyone else...

They talk like bigots, so they are bigots. Thats the simple point I am coming from.

It isn't about these complex conspiracy theories....

If you must talk technical, then as a person who has done a lot of development,
let me say this...sometimes a user can forget their own name, or their e-mail
address, or their password.

You could attack that person and tell them its all their fault. Or you can
build into the system, some method for handling such an event, such that you
don't lose another customer.

This is a ridiculous side issue...as I said in my 2nd clarification and now in
my 3rd, I have no intention of trying to force a resolution, there isn't any
thing much to resolve....I am not trying to get access to the site, so my
lack of access doesn't represent an issue. I brought it up in passing...shouldn't have...ok?

We can talk about the real issues later...for now you win, look at me, I'm frosting at the mouth loon....wooo hooo ooooh....hehe :-) :-)

Oh please, oh wise one, please tell me something about the Q-BOX? After all, that's the REAL MorphOS isn't it?

But no... all we hear about and all MorphOS trades on is the A-BOX (the Amiga EMULATION LAYER). And yet the MorphOS zealots worship this "product based on a promise that it will one day become a complete product"...

Psst... anyone seen the Q-BOX? ;-)

No? Oh well... don't mind me laughing and pointing at those who've embraced an OS who's only clearly defined goal is to replace what it is now (i.e. the A-BOX) with something else (i.e. the Q-BOX) - whatever the hell that is. But hey, it's not like anyone really knows... seeing as morphos.de only ever seems to mention the Q-BOX (it's ultimate goal) in passing as it waffles on and on and on about the A-BOX and how to program it ;-)

It may come as a suprise to you but Amiga.org does not have an exclusive right to Amiga users ;-) NO ONE DOES!

In fact, I'm sure Wayne would agree that it is this kind of opinion that 'causes a lot of problems in the Amiga community. (Amiga Web Directory anybody?).

AmigaWorld has been around for a good year or two. In fact, they started their IRC channel well BEFORE Amiga.org started their's. But hey... don't let that fact get in the way of your misguided AmigaWorld bashing ;-)

What I say is this: If someone is willing to spend hours of their OWN TIME sweating over a site intended for the benefit of the Amiga community, support them and don't let your petty bias reduce the Amiga community to one single website - for when that happens... you know the community is close to death.

Long live Amiga.org, ANN, Czech Amiga News, Amiga-News, AmigaRT (what is that? Real Time?), AmigaWorld.net, etc. etc. etc. etc.

I may not like them all... but long may they continue...

If you are interested in what Frieden brothers or anyone else working on AmigaOS have to say, then it`s far more likely to meet them there at AmigaWorld.net than here.
