I do see the purpose of the bar and the idea behind it.

Only i think if you only put it on Freelancer sites, there don't come quickly new people. The most who play Freelancer are people who already play for years, or...maybe bypass trough a friend. And my experience is, regardless how old the game now is, a lot of people never hear of it.

But if Frag Force have more games on his site it's more a "all round gaming" site.
I think on that way you get also maybe new Freelancers. Free commercial for Freelancer outside the Freelancer community

If you put there Starport in as link on the bar, i don't think it's a bad thing, because i think that Starport is a central point for Freelancer nowa days.

From here people spread around.
And that's what a community need to imho.

We can't suspect that they place all servers in a list, If they have more games on their bar, It's a common work around for the game Freelancer, centralized at Starport.

And i don't think that's hurting the community

There isn't only black or white. There exist also Grey. (No, not our Wolf)

Dont worry, if we had a significant amount of visits from Frag Force, we'd seek for a compromise, but since that is not the case (we got 1 visit this month from Frag Force) its a win-win situation for Frag Force right now which is simply not fair to the participating sites of the FL community network.

Therefore, it has clearly more value to show the participating sites that we stick to our ideals and values and that we are serious about the community network.

Establishing trust and being reliable are requirements for the network to function.

Agree;

Get rid of all noted and true (dead) links, not needed and I have wondered why they are in it in the first place. It's good that you posted this because it most definitely got a response and it's not up to you to report changes in services other than to keep the FLCNB up to date. It's up to those that are in it to keep THEIR info coming to you for that purpose.

I don't run it on my forum because it's HTML and it's not allowed per Host. If it were bbcode then yes.

There are many that are just not working or, DEAD as mentioned but some have just moved and have not bothered to inform you of their doing so, some Community. hmm?

Sorry C.C. but, there is no Plasmafire anymore and it needs to go period. You still visit here, you should know. The site doesn't allow access even to those that once had it.

FLGaming Zone posted that they were closing. I think I posted it here somewhere? Not needed anymore either. There's others too.

Not knocking anyone here but, 404 Errors and the like suck!


The FLCNB is like having your name up in lights in Hollywood. Yes, it's nice to see your site advertised in this way but, it's not the TSP's job to keep your info updated, it's yours.

Send updates whenever you change services or, loose it here.

We have a link to The Starport on our network bar, in return of the favour you were doing for us, by having Frag-Force on your bar.

The whole point of the Freelancer Community Network is to link to all Freelancer community sites, not just the Starport - the Starport has nothing to do with it, they just host it. If you're only linking to the Starport, then you're missing every single other Freelancer community site normally featured in the FLCN. You're basically asking to be listed in a link network next to other sites that you yourself don't link to.

Edit: What the ass, I missed this entire second page. It looks like the link's already been removed anyways.

I am a Root-Admin on Frag-Force and I stop in on this site every other day -- I don't sign in but I keep an eye on this community as I have played Freelancer for Years

Alot of the Frag-Force Community stops in on a regular basis as we are all ex-freelancers or on a freelancer break

We also until recently hosted the SSM Freelancer Mod and previously other mods as well but with the server change we lost the ability to host but we are still a companion site to Digital Brilliance and we feature Freelancer Forums on our Site

We are trying to branch out and broaden the community leave us to the Fan sites and possibly take us off the server list but don't just throw us by the Wayside

Our Mission Statement on the Front Page deliberately Mentions Freelancer and Welcomes them to our site

" While Frag Force no-longer hosts a Freelancer Server, we still encourage and welcome all Freelancer veterans into the community, with open arms. "

I also am a Root Admin on Frag- Force and the bar brings in all kinds of other gamers. It seems to me thats the point of the bar. I haven't posted in a while due to real life things, but I am a member here and and admin on several other sites. I believe removing Frag-Force from the bar would be wrong it is a new and growing site that has a lot to give. When other gamers use the bar and come to the site it should help both sites as it will bring in new blood to the game of FreeLancer and that community. As well as to other games. We support FreeLancer on our site and all Freelancer Players or people.
I do stop in and check to see the way the site has changed and read some of the posts. I also am a advid modder of another game. But i'm also a FreeLancer. And I still play the game and when all the sites have quit FreeLancer I will still be wearing out my spare disks. All Sites benefit from a way to link to each other. So if you remove us It won't hurt us, But it would be a boon to both sites. It's your choice do as you will. We will keep and open mind on the Frag- force site towards the FreeLancer community you are all wecome.

I'm not saying your guys aren't Freelancer fans and supporters, as it appears quite to the contrary. I'm just saying that the whole point of the FLCN is to link all Freelancer community sites together. Why not just put the FLCN bar right above or below the FragForce bar?

Doing major cleanup now!

@LSF: Please add the bar to your new forum ASAP, you didnt get deleted since you left a message in this thread.

@Frag-Force: You got removed.. If you still would like to do a link-exchange with just our site, The-Starport, you're welcome to do so.
As said earlier, in order to appear on the bar, you need to show it on your site.
