dvik: but I don't consider myself a stormtrooper, and therefor I don't consider myself biased.

No you're not that biased, but quite strongly opinionated (which is good I think)

I'm trying to stay out of this debate because it is very polarized, but here are a few things where my objectivity differs from yours:

* Even if I agree that MRC is not equal to Bazix, its very biased. You won't find many MSX forums that writes so much about OCM or Woomb. This is imo nothing bad, just a consequence of that many MRC people are Bazix people as well so its natural to write more about things you care for.
* I dont think the rebels want to secure their warez. They want to be able to create packages with (semi) obsolete software without getting shut down. This is quite tricky nowdays with commercial emus in WII, Woomb, Gametap and other similar services because its not only Bazix that have issues with apps like MSX MBox.
* Imo, Bazix actually did a very childish thing when they got the MSX-MBox link in that magazine removed. This is not only immature but also questionable ethics and perhaps not even legal. A correct action would be to send a letter to the MSX-MBox people and ask them to remove any games for which Bazix have copyright or distribution righs for. I am absolutely sure this does notinclude all games shipped with MSX-MBox.
* Bazix does not represent all companies that did MSX games in the 80's. I wonder if they even represent any game companies, but thats for snout or another Bazix representative to tell (I couldn't find any info on their website).
* wolfs bullet list looks nicer than mine.

tfh, I'd place you as neutral. If you have criticism at least you base your notes on law or something, and you don't appear plain dumb. Tongue As I said, opposition is ok, as long as the discussion is based on something that makes sense, and without yelling 'n stuff.

dvik:

* Even if I agree that MRC is not equal to Bazix, its very biased. {1}You won't find many MSX forums that writes so much about OCM or Woomb. This is imo nothing bad, just a consequence of that {2}many MRC people are Bazix people as well so its natural to write more about things you care for.

{1} And then I ask, why do other forums not write about it? News is news, afaik it's not forbidden for any website to hunt down the internet in search of MSX news. Oh btw, I could mention a forum that writes about failing OCM things, and not -much- about succesful OCM things, but that's another discussion Tongue So anyhoo, a lot of news on MRC about OCM is merely a side-effect of the news-hunting we do, MRC writes about everything newsworthy btw.
{2} "many" ? exactly 3, and this number will decrease. I currently count 16 MRC crew members.

The other points are points for Bazix to answer, I don't know all these ins and outs..

except this point: * wolfs bullet list looks nicer than mine.

@dvik, although I agree with you that sometimes MRC reports a bit too enthousistic about Woomb/Bazix stuff, there are no serious MSX news sites to compare it with. Or someone would actually expect MSX-Posse to post neutral about these kind of matters Wink

I don't think its negative to have a lot of OCM news. But I think the reason why you see a bigger part of the news being OCM or Woomb here than in other forums is because of the connection with Bazix. I'm sure you see the connection between MRC and Bazix, right?

I think that, perhaps with exception of you, snout is the most active news poster in the MRC crew. Of course he finds other news too, but working with Woomb and Bazix, he naturally know everything big and small about the OCM and Woomb. So therefore I think OCM and Woomb news are a bit over representative. Its of course up to other users to submit news too, so its not snouts fault in any way.

Well, it's practical that snout/bart/rikusu post OCM news at the moment it's there. Or did you expect them to update bazix.nl with news, take a break for an hour, go to MRC mode to hunt news, and then randomly visit bazix.nl to see whether there's news? And then "w000t, news! let's post it!"

That's more like Mr.Bean's Christmas, where he stuffs self-adressed xmas cards through his door .. Tongue

I don't think you understand wolf_. What I'm saying is that MRC is over representative of OCM and Woomb news. Simple as that. I don't put any values into the statement. Just accept that my objective view of things is different than yours (and more correct because its mine Wink )
