both of you (with Scorpio) have been very generous with your resources, skills and moderation.
No complaints from me .. :D

Marco's problems were manifold not least of which he opted for quantity rather than quality and that his choice of autocratic and hypocritical moderators was not exactly conducive to maintaining a friendly environment. As Ovyron points out some members chose to leave - so did I .. :D :mrgreen: rather than put up with that.

Admittedly my contributions there were more of a 'fun' type hardly serious but the members there (some anyway) enjoyed it.

Cant say I'd miss the Forum - you two for sure .. :lol: 8-)
Finally "got ya". :lol:
I just want to say that for me your contribution was the most significant (you know what I mean). :wink: I will never forget that!
As for everything else, everyone has their own concepts and principles. So it was and will be. :mrgreen:

Moderation is known to have disrespect for their users
Really? Why is that?
Several users and me have had their posts deleted for arbitrary reasons. I know someone else that quit MZ Chess for this reason. And since this happened within a short time frame after I joined, it's a thing that happens on a regular basis.

Even my post stating why I was quitting was deleted :P

Where exactly you saw "Thanks" system etc? :lol: If you have any problems / disagreement then write about it on the forum right away.
No need to slander.
Situation 1:

-User shares some stuff as attachments on their post.

-A new user wants to download them, but the system in place doesn't allow them to see attachments until they make "10 meaningful posts."

Result: People can't see attachments, so sharers have to use third party hosts. If those hosts or links die, the person wanting to download is out of luck.

Situation 2:

-User does something nice.

-Another user thanks them for that in a post.

-A moderator appears and warns the second user about how they shouldn't be thanking in a post and should be using the thank button on posts.

Result: People that thank other people are being censored now? :shock:

Where's the slander? I don't know how good Sugar compares to other Stockfish branches, but Marco sure has a terrible moderator taste...
Man I feel identified with what you posted ..i got banned 2 times as well because of nonsense...👌

I read the word "injection" in the error logs... smells bad... Sounds like I was right about a possible SQL injection...

Like 'haters will hate'...complainers will complain. They did a decent job of keeping the jerks and spammers out of there...unlike say
I never once had a problem, nor with the newer

I would be willing to wager that the truth behind the demise of each might just be that some commercial entities got together and paid someone to engage in some cyber-espionage, tired of their products being 'given away'.

It is a pity of course if the forum is closed. Although I rarely visited him recently, I’m glad that I also made a small contribution to its development.
