Meeting of the mods - Paving the way for tomorrow.
People, its time for a fresh wind thru the community.
today, the community is negative, has a whining attitude, is impatient and intolerant.
In this chaos, it near to impossible to create homogen 'addon/mission' guidelines. or some other form of organized structure/initiative which could help with the future of this wonderfull game.
This organized structure, could be the 'ModMeeting'
A monthly recurring meeting, where participants will exchange thoughts, ideas and maybe more.
This is a VOICE meeting, held on Teamspeak.
A list of notes will be made for every subject that needs 'cooperative' support or attention.
with this coherent group, we can have a big influence on the community, and maybe even BIS.
Before people start giving arguments on the idea, let me say this.
ArmA has a community with a long history. with good and bad things.
this community, has been scattered and divided in certain 'groups' and this counts for everybody!
Not only players, Modders, but also ***Newssites, Bis-moderators, publishers and even BIS/BIA employees.
if we all put a little of our pride aside, and accept eachothers differences and take this step, we could be at the dawn of a different tomorrow.
The ModMeeting isnt a Authority, and nobody 'leads' it.
i stepped forward to organized this, as i have done this in the past, with great success.
thru this post, im trying to poll the 'community's ' willingness to participate. - so dont let me down.
im calling all Mod-Teams and News-Sites.
- Appoint a appropreate ModMeeting Speaker for your team, and sign up for the modmeeting.
*( a simple reply with your 'mod teamname' or sitename, and that you like to participate suffices. ***
fanmail replies should be directed to )
The Mod-Meeting, is for MODS only.
what is discussed there, is only for those participants, unless clearly stated that information is public.
At first, we should learn to trust eachother when we are toghether on the meeting.
We already have quite some people that are interested.
Remember, that 'lone wolf' modders are also welcome to sign up.
Also, im missing some 'big names' like ***FDF, ***Germany1985, ***and some more of the 'Bigger' names in ArmA....
It would be nice to have them, and other modders on the 'first' meeting, as you cant judge a initiative while standing on the sideline.
