A few comments - without too much structure - on some of the latest comments I saw in this thread....

Anyway... please don't stop MSX Games bOX!
I will continue, be assured... a bit on slow down now but hehe, wrote 20 more lines of the next review this morning...

I do not think you have many update to do (no new software => no update)
Euhh ... just for the homebrew list - it covers games from 92 to today ... I stilll have 127 hours of work to have all games covered like I would like to have it in the end - LOL - and that's the homebrew list only ... and for reviews, I also do them from time to time on older releases ;-)

But I never really look at any guestbook on any page
I don't look at them anymore either - and I don't have anymore one on my site since a long long time... the only thing I wanted to say is that at the time I had a guestbook (that is in 98 or 99), you had people cheering constantly about what you did... you also had at that time far more people just sending you a thank you e-mail ... it was to illustrate the change of attitude of internet users towards their gratefulness towards the Viejo_Archivero's, SNout's, Sander' and others to name a few...

WAKE UP, LAZY PEOPLE!!!!! MAKE MSX ART!!
Entirely agree! Wake up folks! I am not organising a wallpaper contest every year for the sake of losing time promoting it... (ironic).
Seriously, MSXart'04 success pissed me off a bit as well - anybody looking forward MSXart'05?

Recently I downloaded one archive from e-mule of MSX stuff and had one folder inside with MSX web links, and mine (www.moai-tech.com) did not apperar
Though I agree to most of what you've written in this thread Selios, you can't blame somebody for not including your link...

Still, most news is post by the MRC. You guys are some of those happy exeptions.
I believe you - and you do the difficult part to find and share most of the MSX news to the community. Same on my side for The MSX Games bOX, I could almost say that NO news is spontaneously submitted to me (that would be oh so nice and easier for me)... it takes indeed time to watch all msx community sites, have a daily look at the e.g. HispaMSX, MSX Italia mailing lists, screen the information, find more about it and maybe report on it...

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.
Plenty people around with goodwill and passionate about what they do - fortunately!

And let me finish here for today - rather than proposing to have rotating button on the MRC to promote other MSX sites (anyway there is already a good Links section) - it would be better to form a kind of network between webmasters of active MSX websites who would inform each other of any news they publish and that might be of interest to their fellow counterparts... that could be helpful... a mailing list between webmasters to share news or just to ask for coverage etc... hasn't to be animated but a simple and useful mean to share news and to have that news straight by e-mail rather than to have to look for it on 283 different websites...

The MRC is trying to be the website where you can find all this news and announcements for several years now, but of course we rely on the contributions of our visitors. Although we do manage to spot lots of news ourselves, if you don't let us know about your news (or news you know about), chances are the MRC won't report about it. Of course everyone is free to base contents of their website or magazine on the newsposts (or other contents) of the MRC, only one on one copy/pastes or translations aren't really appreciated Wink

You're in a good mood today Snout Smile I'd like to rephrase Wink May I? Ah what the heck... You're not giving yourself enough credz. Note this: a -really small- percentage of the news on MRC is submitted by you, the MSX community. Most is spotted by Snout while he checks many, many MSX websites daily. Furthermore, copying content from MRC one on one (without mention source) is not just "not appreciated" it's even prohibited according our policies Wink

I'm not complaining about anything (though you should submit more!), but whilst we're talking about credz and appreciation I'd thought Snout could use a feather or two in his arse aswell Smile Smile Smile
