You can't imagine how much more gripe the people have who were there LONG before it was even Rebelscum, and I think that's where Chris is coming from... I don't think (I could be wrong so I apologize if I am) you were a member of Collect Star Wars' "BHC" forums, but THAT is what Rebelscum basically narfed from Mike Sullenger...
You think YOU are disappointed in a decline, talk to Sullenger who built the Bounty Hunter Collective into a great collecting community... It was big, friendly, had great attentive staff... Then CSW merged with Scum and it went to ****, in a nutshell.
GalacticHunter's formed a new BHC and that's cool but it's never been the same for me, and the BHC's never been duplicated I think. I'm happy here now, I'm happy with my comrades here, but Rebelscum has NEVER had a forum like the BHC... Once they tanked that it's been all downhill and even when you started there it was already in the ******* to the "old school" guys that were there from the CSW days. It's really hard to describe how quickly that place went to hell, seriously.
Like Chris said... You have an account here and I really think you're a welcomed member over here. So "who cares?" as he says? Scum's a resource now, and nothing more. There hasn't been a "community" at that site for years now, and there never will be anything more than an uncontrollable, uncared for meeting place for people to get together in my view. We've been hopping in activity, we're happy as a clam with that, and we actually care about this place from the forums to the front page and back again. To me, Scum's a place to consider doing some trading (though given how many scalpers and con-artists frequent it now without close supervision, I am wary of that as well), and as a vintage section read now and then... Otherwise the inmates run the asylum and I personally don't want to interact with that too often.
