Forum "slogan" update ?

Post by exxos » Thu Nov 15, 2018 1:35 pm

Should this be updated now ?
Boosting your Atari since 1994! Come and join the party :)

As terrible fire correctly mentioned a few days ago, this forum is more of a retro hardware forum and of course isn't limited to just Atari machines any more.

Back when the forum was created, I only really thought of the forum as being a extension/replacement for my blog, With the advantage of being able to offer support more publicly than over emails on a individual basis... Of course now we are dealing with other machines such as the Amiga, should we now change this line thing more appropriate ?

I think that this will remain mostly Atari ST (and it's followers - TT, Falcon) forum. So, word Atari should stay in possible, new slogan.
There is 2 kind of people: one thinking about moving to Mars after here becomes too bad, the others thinking about how to keep this planet habitable.

Is this too passive aggressive?

"Boosting your Atari since 1994! Come and join the party :) (Even if you own an Amiga....)"

Or maybe:

"Boosting your Atari since 1994! Come and join the party :) Now with Added Amiga!"

Perhaps:

"Where Atari and Amiga meet"
Collector of old Atari things:
800XL + Ape Warp mod, 2x 1010 cassette, 1050 + Happy mod, 65XE (128k) & XC12, SIO2SD, 2600jr, 7800 and Lynx II
Atari 520ST (1Meg) + Gotek, 1040STFM + Vortex ATOnce + Gotek, 1040STF long button floppy, 4160 STE with Gotek and ROM switcher, 4160STE with 32Mhz booster, ROM switcher and CosmosEx, not to mention various bare ST boards for testing including a PAK 68/2 :)
Plus the rest..
Amiga stuff, Mac stuff, Sinclair stuff etc...

Thing is, I haven't been boosting Amigas since.. well.. ever..hence the slight issue over the slogan ;)

Maybe we should focus on what makes this forum different from all others. Okay, it has Exxos in it, but I guess the name kinda gives that away ;)

Aspects I can think of:
  • Very hardware focussed, but not exclusively
  • Atari focussed, but again not exclusively
  • zero-tolerance for bullshittery and common assholery
I think, we should make something of the last one :)

Maybe slightly more positive than I put it ;)
