    So, considering MindArk doesn't actually own Planet Calypso, will all other planet partner forums get an AMA section for the MindArk leadership as well?

    No need to answer this. It was a rhetorical question.

    1. The admin of PCF is a scammer, liar and notorious rulebreaker. Have you ever considered having your company forum managed by professionals with a clean reputation instead of engaging in shady nepotism with a shady character?
    2. In your double role as the platform provider to your planet partners and as a planet partner yourself competing with the other planet partners have you ever considered not running something like an "universe-wide" AMA on your own planet forum but on a neutral place out of fairness towards other planet partners?
    3. Your sure love your community. Would you consider running your next AMA on EntropiaPlanets.com, a neutral site truly dedicated to the Entropia Universe community for 10 years already?
    4. Over the years EntropiaPlanets.com has sent many many interview requests to Mindark but never got any reply, why is that? Because you don't give a fuck about the community and even less about community sites working their asses off to keep your community entertained and informed?
    5. A medium sized media outlet with for example a 30k subs YT channel dedicated to MMO gaming is currently implementing an additional focus on gaming with guilds organized by the site and therefore was looking for 2-3 MMOs to partner with for bringing their community of 50k MMO gamers while accompanying the operation with articles, livestreams, etc. They've sent you several messages inquiring information about the affiliate program but never got any reply. Don't you think such opportunities could be more worthwhile than for example a press release about spaceships with a Ferrari painting?

    1. Did MA elect to hold the AMA on PCF, rather than Reddit, purely so they can remove anything they don't want to see answered?



    Off-topic, but it warms my heart seeing how many posts question the conflict of interest with the planet partners. I doubt any of those issues get addressed, but at least it seems the community isn't letting them get away with that crap anymore.

    Make a backup every few minutes for the duration of the session. Don't trust Reddit either and be glad they didn't choose Facebook.

    Continued from #5

    6. What game did you enjoy recently (besides Entropia Universe)?
    7. What's your favourite game of the recent years (besides Entropia Universe)?
    8. On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate Entropia Universe compared to that game?
    9. I have several ex-MA employees on my friendlist, one of which even subscribed to our Twitch channel in 2015 already, all of them have stated that the game is shit and the company is shit? What's the difference between you and them?

    I don't go to PCF for 3 reasons:
    1. It's still administrated by a liar, scammer and notorius rulebreaker, while paying customers who dare to complain too much get banned, it's total fucking morale bankruptcy. Stop this shit.
    2. It's still administrated by one of MindArks cronies -probably for inflated premium rates- who doesn't have any professional experience in forum administration other than buying an already working forum. Stop cronyism, work with a professional provider with competitve pricing, do it for you customer who in the end have to pay for this shit with the deposits.
    3. The content I've personally created on that site was sold to MindArk who've paid for it with the money I've deposited, in the end I've paid a liar, scammer and notorius rulebreaker for the content I've created myself. Fix this.
    Now I'm really considering making an exception and go to PCF for this silly AMA. But if so I would also finally be done, it would be the last I ever do related to this shitty game and this shitty company.

  13. You can only ask 2 questions on the real forum. But ofcourse you can ask 10 questions in here, the place that Mindark doesn't even know exists... That will teach em!

    It's like holding up a banner with "fuck Trump" on a deserted island close to Antarctica.

    If you want to make a difference, go there and ask your two questions. I won't tell that you sold your soul to the devil by visiting the greatest evil known to men: PLANETCALYPSOFORUM.COM

    First of all, this forum is very real, it's even older than PCF and it will survive Entropia Universe. The lack of popularity is a pity, mainly for MindArk, Planet Partners and the community, we could as well have a thriving place with developer interviews, news and articles, guides, even a magazine, covering all planets, but in the end it's been mainly MindArks very own deficiencies that have made this site what it is.

    Some people have principles, I've calmed down and probably won't go to PCF. I guess everyone has a red line, for me lying, cheating, scamming & nepotism is enough for not supporting people that are already paid from my money, for others it might take robbing old ladies or worse, and that's actually sad.

    And then I don't think it would matter at all where I held up my sign, case closed.

    What a weak attempt at a troll. Rest assured MindArk knows this site exists. As do the Planet Partners. They also know MA is once again favouring themselves, by holding the AMA on their own planet's forum.

    If MA really had balls, they'd do the AMA on an independent platform, where questions they don't like won't simply disappear, and the community can push interesting questions to the top. You know, like Reddit.

    I go to PCF for exactly one reason: It -is- the channel to communicate with MindArk, as one-sided or rough as it may go, because other ways don't work at all. I don't care about the rest (after certain experiences confirming some of the known criticisms) and don't put any personal content there I'm not prepared to lose to a crazy mod's whim. What I do put there now is strictly for documentation purposes, and if anything vanishes I make sure to keep the traces (though it hasn't happened since).

    With all its imperfections, it is a tool I consider unwise to avoid just because of emotional reasons. The mod or shady owner has to be born whom I allow to drive me out in this way -- if that happens it will be -their- decision to use force and -them- exposing that they've run out of arguments, not me.

    If you have something to ask the young boss and his leading colleagues, here is your chance. It is counterproductive if only the critical voices remove themselves. They ask for it, give it to them. At the very worst, no answer is also an answer. Or see it this way: in the digital world, there is no difference between the informational value of a 0 or a 1.
     

  18. You finally shot yourself in the foot. Congratulation !
    But why did it take so long ? Bad aim ? ;D

    Always smiling, while Mindark is laughing at its own community.

    Enjoy "making a difference" on the "real forum"...pffft...the saddest part is, you beeing serious.
     
  19. They don't "have balls". The AMA is through PCF. That's why asking your questions in here is useless. Not a troll.. just the way it is.
