Please: maintaining MRC costs time, but do you know people spend hours of free time trying to provide you with news? Searching for news? Don't start with that the MRC is depended solely on it's users. We posted years about MSX without even having a forum and everybody declared us nuts because we reported about MSX. I personally dare to say that the MSX community wouldn't be where it is today without the MRC. I could even say that a bit more hars, but then I would probably will be called some nazi elite who dictates what the community should do. I don't dictate -the MRC don't dictate- but we just follow a track that has been layed out by all team members involved. That might differ sometimes from what individual users want. That sucks sometimes, but he', that's with all things in life.

I know. Every other news web of MSX worked like that. There's no other solution of putting news but searching for them in forums, mailing list... We all know that. I didn't meant that the users write the news, but the users are used to visit YOUR NEWS WEB!!
You spend free time in that, KAROSHI in developing games and offering a TR as a winner gift!, MSX Games box reviewing games, MOAI making articles just if anyone wants to read it... We all spend our free time in that.

Anyway to get back on topic Smile Please share your thoughts on the MSX Games Box with Phil Smile In the meantime I can assure you a banner system displaying MSX website banners (without a special occasion) will not return to MRC. If the community really feels the current link directory is insufficient in promoting other website then please come up with workable solutions -besides- the banner system Wink I could imagine a random link block for example...

Hmm... a random link... that brings back memories Wink It might be an idea though to add some feature to rate sites again... Don't know how frequently it was used though.

Anyway... please don't stop MSX Games bOX!

I think I can safely say that the rating system won't return also. We've had it in the past, but people voted again and again on their own sites. Besides, those sites with no or low ratings will surely no longer be visited afterwards. What would we accomplish with that?

Thank you, Bart, just for taking a little time to think about it. I assume that the banner feature would take some efforts to implement but the important here is that we do not want to dictate anything, selios just asked for that feature, that's all. And that random link block has been a practical and creative option!. Thanks for letting us know that the MRC check the feels of the community before acting Smile, because sander words had seriously worried me.

As Sander stated already he spoke for himself. No decision, not one, not even a tiny one, is made at least without prior consent of the other admins (seven already nowadays)... Btw, we have a forum called "MSX Resource Center" which is especially there to discuss anything related to the MRC. So if you like to propose features or something like that, please feel free to open up a topic in that forum! Smile
