Sit back, take a deep breath and appreciate how awesome it is that after more than ten years this community is still a strong one. The same cannot be said of many online communities.
You're clearly a very passionate person Trinca, but even Quake isn't worth the daily aneurism's you appear to suffer from.

community seems fine, about as fine as its gonna get anyway (although I'm not totally involved)
expo 08 is just around the corner and its gonna be good
plenty of good people are still making stuff.
czg is a prick true, but his license to be a prick wears out more every year he doesn't release anything. so either he stfus, or he releases a new map. win-win for the community I say :)
Didn't Trinca quit about a month back?
QBoard is dying!!!!!
nonentity me gustas cari�o!
All The Incarnations Of This Community
have had threads of this kind so it's probably just a sign that it's alive when someone cares enough to create one.
ye Bear said it all!
/me hugs bear
What can be done?
Map (for all engines)
Promote (to more than just the usual people)
Be nice (to keep people around)
The Only Negative Thing I've Seen About This Community...
...is this thread.
When I look elsewhere I see loads of recent map releases given this is an old old game and a lot of previous protagonists are busy with shit. I see a lot of maps in the works, a lot of mods and coding in the works. I see people tinkering around in other games. I see a small but well-established community of people who have been around for a whole fucking decade and I see new people cropping up regularly and being welcomed into the fold. I see banter and bollox and productive periods and quieter periods an no real sign that this community is any more dying than it was 1, 2, 5, or 10 years ago.
i just hope SPD and Distrans return :( fuck the rest!!!
the rest of craps... not the others that are missed to :p
It's Not Like People Have Only Just Started Leaving After Ten Years
The following people have left:
Cheshire, Escher, Gonzo, Ghandi, guf, Gen, Gilt, ztn, RPG, Headshot, danimal, Aardappel, Apollo, Borsato, Peej, Pingu, Paul, Damaul, necros, Jeff Yost, Sadlark, Iikka, Preacher, Hotcakes, Fern, Fat Controller, XeNon, xen, ELEK, bla bla bla bla bla Spirit could think of a thousand more.
It happens. nonentity nailed it.
Let's not pronounce anything dead until at least after QExpo, hm? You can panic then.
a few months ago I *might* have agreed with the OP, but now not a chance in hell, there has been so much good stuff released recently its like the 2nd coming of Quake or something ;)
Actually I thought Sham got it tbh.
>The following people have left:
i believe he's still here 'rj'
and where is RPG?
is in college slaving away for his math professors. I don't think he's coming back, at least he has not expressed any interest the times I have talked to him. He's been gone for a few years though.
