Thanx for the newsupdates!
Is it possible to put a more matching picture in the Facebook posts?
Looks like it are random pictures.

Is the news back-log growing again? Or is this not newsworthy:

https://www.msx.org/forum/msx-talk/general-discussion/zx-spe...

I would have expected it to be a bit more interesting compared to the most recent newspost...
(And also the Nemesis newspost was a bit emberassing...)

@tfh: Your spelling, only challenged by your ingratitude of the work we do daily to keep this site running, that's embarrassing. You're acting as if you're paying me a salary and I'm breaching a contract or something.
If you have a problem with me, take it up with me personally, and not here.
If your problem is that we're not processing the news fast enough to your personal taste, then consider joining the team.
But please cut down on the passive-aggressive stuff you've been doing lately, because that's not cool and doesn't progress towards anything. We're only human and most of us have a personal life to tend to - at least if you'd not terribly mind.
So it would be nice if you would practice some patience and some class from now on. Thanks in advance.

Ehm... I'm sorry, but you are the one making it personal right now. This is a reaction I would not have expected from you, or from a mod.
But don't worry. You concerns have been noted.

/edit/
nah.. I am still going to post a reaction to this. I counted to 100 (in Dutch, as my English sucks)...

No... My remarks weren't personal. But you must admit that the newspost about Nemesis really, really sucked. And you also have to admin that the inital newspost about Prometheus was really really bad. Just have a look at the other reactions there and your own "excuse" reply in that thread.
Can you please point me towards the other "passive aggrasive" posts I have made? I think you'll be done pretty quickly, because there probably aren't. It's just you big toes, in combination with your ego that has made you post your message above,
Besides that, commenting on my poor level of English is just weak, and more or less tells more about you then about me. So your English is better the mine. I guess that makes you a better person. I hope you feel good about yourself.

A post like yours, would normally be considered a flame... And yes, I'm taking the bait. Hope you're happy now...

Geez.. Go get a life man and grow up...

@ tfh: A big ego? Seriously, dude? Big smile
The moment I read that, I was certain you don't know me at all.
I will admit to the big toes; I do have them. I'm, as they say, hot blooded.

Ha! Well for the record: this is all on my personal account, and I'm not talking as an MRC team member here, neither was I in my previous comment. This is my personal perception of your attitude, which stinks IMHO.
So don't issue any useless mod alerts like you just did either; be a man and just support what you're saying. With words. Our disagreement is between you and me, and we shouldn't bother anyone else.
Got it? We're already wasting other people's time with this, but sorry, my friend, it's absolutely you who kept pushing me into reacting the way I did.

It's basically all the nagging. As you say above, the post about Nemesis "really, really sucked", the post about Prometheus was "really really bad". And you went making a fuss about it in this topic.
Maybe this is some alien concept to you, but if someone keeps busting your balls and complaining as if they're your goddamn employer or something, you might reach a level at a certain point where you get slightly annoyed, yes.
Need I remind you that all of this is 'hobby' work we do in our free time? I think not - you're smarter than that.

What's more, let's see - here you're making a joke on my expense, not giving any serious response at all, and there was some other newspost where someone else asked why there wasn't a newspost yet, and you made a sarcastic reference to what I said in another topic about newsposts getting posted quicker if they're submitted.
Either I'm less stupid than you think I am, or I'm more paranoid than I thought I was, but the truth is probably somewhere in the middle.

Oof, so edgy, dude. What do you know about my life? You know nothing about it.
Now, that's a cheap thing to say of you, and I guess you, in turn, can admit I did not steep to that level. Because, did I make an assessment or evaluation about your personal life? No, huh? But here we are.
Class. Didn't I mention class?

Let's forget this dumb stuff. Just don't fucking nag so much, or just join the team if you think you can do a better job. But quit riding my ass and don't pretend to be all holy when you're called out.

I'll leave this to rest if you will, too. I don't actually have something against you, but you did annoy me for quite some time. Let's just forget it, okay?

(in an alternative dimension, I would immediately ban this user because that's what MRC does all the time when someone disagrees with a team member, or so I heard)

Dear John,

* https://www.msx.org/forum/msx-talk/software/starship-rendezv...
That was only a simple, maybe stupid joke. Nothing personal towards you. Would have made it towards someone else as well. It's the level of jokes here sometimes. So not an example of any aggression. If you really think that was personal, you are indeed way more paranoid then you thought. This forum is full of this kind of stupid jokes.

* If you can honestly say that your newspost about Nemesis was decent, and your initial one about Prometheus as well, well... That there is not much to say I guess. Just take a look at the other reactions. And why didn't you respond to those people as well?

* This more or less only leaves my point about the newspost which I submitted four days ago. OK, maybe I am expecting to much. And no, I am not ungratefull and I am not in any place to make any demands regarding when you guys do a newspost. I only try to submit some news now and then, and these days I even try to supply some extra info with it and then sometimes you get anxious about when it's gonna get posted (before the news gets old). But don't worry. I will not submit them anymore. And joining the team? Nah.. My English sucks (as you have nicely pointed out) and with such an hostile attiude towards me. No thanks, I'll pass.

I never had any trouble with you, and I really really don't understand where this is comming from, but I suggest you have another look at my original posts (and your news submit) with a clear mind and then I hope you will just see what I meant.

Okay tfh.

About the Nemesis newspost, I can be clear and simple: everyone was busy, I was busy, but people were (rightfully, so) wondering why there wasn't a newspost. Everything that could be said about it was already on the forum, but there are also visitors who only check the frontpage, or via the phone, etcetera, who could have missed it, so I did, in your words, a "quick and dirty" one, and actually inquired our users if that was a problem. People said it was no problem. Remember?
But then, here in this topic, you suddenly started to ride my ass about it. And that's my problem with that. Overnight, it instantly became a problem.
I never ever said or even suggested it was a decent newspost, but I don't see you paying my limousine to get to MRC headquarters either, so it just comes off as really ungrateful.

The Prometheus newspost was more or less a placeholder, but I spotted the news and decided to submit it and perhaps later add info to it, because I (*gasp*) also have other things to do (which has something to do with what you said earlier, that I should get a life: I wish).
Then again, my ass gets ridden about it. Just place yourself in my shoes for 5 seconds, okay? I'm here every day, playing policeman, resizing pictures of front page items, editing mine and other's newsposts, trying to keep the team together (not to mention the practically daily flack we get from haters behind the curtains or hidden in the shadows), and maybe I was overreacting, but systematic complaints like these, especially if they come from one particular person (you), that quite rustles my jimmies. Do you understand? I spend way more time here, trying to keep it all together, than I would like to. And I expect structural complaints only from people who actually pay me, you see.

If you ever want to submit something, don't worry about your English. The English of everyone here on the team, including me, sucks. :) We're not native speakers at all.
I won't be 'hostile' to you anymore, and as far as I'm concerned, I'll never be again and practically forget about this argument if you can find the time to let go off my ass about newsposts that aren't to your liking. ;)

Peace?

People seem to dedicate a lot of effort to complain, but I rarely see compliments for the MRC team efforts.

I would like to express here my gratitude for all the MRC team, for their immense investment here, and for this awesome portal were MSX friends from all around the world can meet, keep themselves informed and discuss ideas.

I'm aware the service isn't perfect. But nothing is perfect. Most of the software released for the MSX isn't perfect too, and the MSX itself isn't perfect. And here we are, talking and releasing new things for a computer that has been declared commercially dead for around 25 years.

Keep up the good work!
