  Desperate Measures- Saving Our Community - Site News
  Posted by: Fire_Legion on 12-01-2007 @ 01:53 - Source: Fire Legion
This News Item has been viewed 6,646 times
This site is collapsing. Files hardly ever get posted, the PotD commenting has to be disabled because of gross misuse, and activity is low.

Of course, I have to do my part, and that's sorting out the staff, managing the website and posting files. The staff also need to post files, news etc. The members need to provide material for us, and keep abiding by the rules.

I really don't want us to die, and I think we've got the potential to be a key part of the ES community. Email ideas and thoughts to me if you want at mikelegion@yahoo.co.uk

I could fill in the application of Humble though, but with a lot of school work and no modding capabilities it's a bit hard

I'll upload my Song Of Ice and fire TC here in a few years...

But yeah I really agree - Somebody needs to breathe some new life into this great site - and fast. Perhaps a thread on the Bethedsa forums asking them to remember good old Filefront when they make their mods?

I check back here every now and then, but the reason I don't come much is because there are very few files posted. Its not like there's a lack of files or anything; just look at Planet Elder Scrolls (the site I go to a lot more), they have a constant stream of files being posted, at least 4 or 5 each day! Some are just minor files, but I've seen large mods such as updates for MMM which haven't been posted here...(BTW I hope this doesn't count as advertising for another site, if it does, just delete it. I just wanted to point out that there isn't a lack of files out there)

I have 5 filefront sites on my favorites list, with this site being the 3rd. About every day or every other day I check all five for updates.

Don't go away until I upload Paradise Arena!!!! eek!

If modders is what you need, I'll work extra hard on making lots of little mods for you! I love this site, and I wouldn't want it to leave! But what I think is you need a "flag comment as innappropriate" button on each comment, and it will be invisible-ized until an admin can get to it. OOOR you could recruit like a hundred people to be Moderators and make them edit posts... that could stop the flaming problem. And an idea for more mods; look around on TESNexus and email some of the modders there and ask them if we could host some of their files. That would probably help. wink

Indeed. i am currently working on a big mod. and as soon as it is done i will submit it here (although it will most likely take quite long)

Good ideas, but I think perhaps Moderators would work better than a "flag-as-inappropriate" button. The latter has too much potential for abuse, I think.
And in terms of mods, once I finish the quest mod I'm currently working on, this will be the first site I upload it to. wink

All Filefront sites are based on a single template. Therefore in order to add something like a "flag as Inappropriate button", we would have to contact the heads of Filefront and convince them to change the template. As I've learned from bitter experience, it's next to impossible to convince them to add something like this, which they see as "trivial". Thus something like that is extremely unlikely to be added.

If You've tried my Redbelly's Treasure quesat but got stuck because of Dirty Ref's and missing meshes, fret no more since the new and improved V2 is waiting to be released and has been found bug-proof. V3 will contain New Scripts, Dialog, And journal entries...keep your eyes out for it ladies and gentle-khajits!

It is a shame, Star Trek Legacy went through the same problem, with flaming. I love some of the things that I have seen, and I really want to make some clothing mod or something. As many that know me know, I am a Star Trek fan and infact have made some maps(and still am) for Star Trek - Voyager: Elite Force. I will use the resources provided here and the forums but, I would like some contact from some experienced modders for the TES: CS. I have also wanted to try out Morrowind, and I don't see resources on the site for modding it, would like some help on that, if no one minds

Keep up the work existing modders!

I don't know about others here, but I have had excellent experiences with Filefront staff and they have been willing to work with me on problems before. That is my reason, if not others, for wanting this site to stay alive.

I like the staff here as well - I think that's the best thing about the site. All of my experiences with the staff have been excellent...well except for that Aberneth guy who abused me and others because we said that his texture pack wasn't made entirely by hand, and consisted of photos pieced together (which isn't a bad thing btw), which they obviously were. Apart from that though, all the staff have been real nice, and I feel they control the flaming quite well. A bit of a shame that Humble left, but at least Fire_Legion is still here.

to #19 the reason tesnexus doesnt have that many pics is because the whole site got changed over from tessource and they lost all the screens but most new mods have them. anywho i might be able to make a few retextures, ive been doing it for a while and i thought nobody would want them but... i guess theres been worse... also about the eejits who are filling this site with flames i got two words= Ban Hammer.
