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 ?

Answers on a postcard..

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.

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"

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 ;)
