@Adamm as you know you have my full support and have asked for something like you on that thread (let's hear more voices on this topic!).

I am generally loathe to join forums, but for snbforums.com, I made an exception. I hope I don't have a reason to regret it (too).

Choice. is king. Tech makes offering choices easy. I really don't see what the drive to arbitrary limits is.

There must be others that want to support the developers to do their work as they see fit.

there have been discussions in place that will effectively kill off many of the addons that we all use on a day to day basis.
Let's not be melodramatic here. Forum management has nothing to do with the survival of a software project. Don't try to pull an Epic Game here by making this a "my users against them".

I like melodramatic. One things for sure, if it goes away, there won't be any new users. Problem solved?
Seems like long threads with a lot of interaction would be a managers dream instead of nightmare.

I realize I am just a peon, and you guys are the best in the world at what you do. I do have a voice, though.

Attention Skynet Users!
@Adamm - thank you for all you do for us users, and Skynet is just one of the more visible things. If you choose to leave I'll frequent that forum. Having you and Skynet here is a big plus value-add to the Asus sphere. Thank you.

Attention Skynet Users!

Unfortunately the future of Skynet is in doubt. As you may or may not be aware, there have been discussions in place that will effectively kill off many of the addons that we all use on a day to day basis. If you use Skynet or any other script let your opinion be known here.


Assuming these changes go ahead on November 1st, the future of Skynet will go in one of two directions;


1) We will be moving to a more inclusive platform (Whirlpool or LTT Forums being strong candidates, but I'm open to suggestions)
2) The project (along with all the others I am involved in) will be ended all-together and no longer receive any updates/support.


I have not decided on which coarse of action will be taken as the whole situation has been quite demotivating and a bit of a slap in the face. But I still have hope that cooler heads will prevail and this decision will be reversed and we can all get on with building the community rather then trying to tear it down.

So I ask all users let your opinions be head, as individuals we can be ignored but as a community we have a voice.

That's what it looks like on first glance, and you are correct that claiming addons will die because of thread management is far-fetched. But, now that I've actually had some time to read through that other thread, I can sympathize with the you vs us mentality.

The other thread looks, on first glance, like it will respect feedback. But it effectively didn't.

That is the main problem I see here...

Regarding the forum change, I was hoping the members would have found a solution/compromise. Isn't that the better way? That's why I stayed out of these discussions, and let the big people talk.
I'm just thankful that I followed RMerlin to this forum, and learned all the things I didn't know existed (scripts) for my router. RMerlin and all the script writers and contributors are what make this a "special" place.
I don't mind change and adapting to new, if that is what it takes.

The software is what I care about. Which site/forum it is supported on is irrelevant, makes no difference to me. As long as I can easily find the information I need somewhere.

You write as if other forums are equivalent to snbforums.com. :)

In all seriousness, I don’t think anyone wants a change to the status quo.:oops:

Just that whatever changes are deemed necessary for the ongoing function of the forum are very carefully considered prior to implementation.
