OKay, so I'v been thinking. So GAC is the Galactic Adventure Club right? So, why can't Adventure Craft stuff be offical GAC advenures. They are adventures of their own galaxy, the MC galaxy. The introdution of Adventure Craft to the forum would let the Minecrafters on GAC particiapte in offical contest and make adventure maps again. It could also get more attention for the forum. Sence people here often complain that there isn't enough activity in the Adventure Section, why not ad Adventure Craft? Disscus what you think.

So... you're saying you'd like to post Minecraft adventure-map making threads in the Adventures area of the forum, as opposed to the off-topic section? That strikes me as being a little superfluous, if I'm honest, but perhaps I'm missing the point. Wondering

Honestly I think what we really need to do is condense the whole forum into 5 sections: GAC Discussion, Adventures, General Discussion, Off-topic and RP. razz With decent descriptions for each one it would make the forum much easier to navigate.

I'm not 100% against this, but anyone who doesn't notice how GAC is now all about MC it seems, must be blind :P I know there are some big MC fans out there but seriously, this is GAC. The "Adventure" In Galactic adventures is just because that's the title of a spore extension pack. Adding this will not only further annoy me, but further tear the "GA" In GAC. MC isn't a bad or stupid thing, but it's destroying the meaning of this site. You may say "But discussing Spore was over a while ago" But I don't care. Get an MC forum up! I assure you MC GACers would check it out.

So go ahead, put this in, I don't care much, but it'll only increase the amount of random MC threads and discussions I'll be left out of and will pollute this forum. MC is becoming the Borg of the internet if I put it in Star Trek terms. It just gets so popular that everyone talks about it until the internet is assimilated.

Again, Go ahead and add a new MC section after reading my post happy. And think about it please.

I have been trying to shove this one up the mail box forever. razz

I don't think we really need to have a section dedicated to a specific purpose. If anything I lean where Delta is going with this. I personally do not think its entirely worth the effort. Off topic section seems to be doing the job just fine.

Although I'm a big MC Fan, I really don't think we should bring in even more Minecraft-ness into GAC, since we have a lot of it already. :P
I do like your idea that we should (Or could) build Minecraft adventures.
But I think it'd be a good idea to just post the adventures in the Minecraft thread. :P

-Lazer

Seriously Lazer, if you don't like that our friends and family have moved on to a new hobby, you're more than welcome to leave. Sitting around complaining about it won't get anything done. Aside from giving us all a headache.

Face it, spore is a dying animal. Minimal content, abandoned by the developers, and taken over by a horrible community. Minecraft is similar in terms of allowing creativity, and is actually receiving updates and attention from the developers. We just might want to switch this place over to a general gaming forum. Might suit us better.

But I do agree, I sort of miss the days of adventure collaboration. But what's done is done, we have to move on and live with it.

PostSubject: Spore, not Minecraft   Tue Aug 30, 2011 5:22 am

I don't care whether Spore is dead or not. GAC is a Spore thread, not a Minecraft thread. There's plenty more Spore-related stuff to discuss, if we just think about it. And I remember hearing that someone here made a forum dedicated to both Spore and Minecraft. That's where this idea should be fulfilled.

Now YOU'RE the one misunderstanding ME. Read my post carefully. I'm saying the same stuff everyone else is saying. I don't want MC polluting GAC, MC goes in off-topic and we're not going to transform GAC into MCC even if Spore is dying. We neec to use this forum for what it was meant for. Hanging out and talking about Spore. :P If you're gonna get mad at me, see if others are saying similar stuff first please. I don't like being examined under a microscope whenever I post roll

No, his was just a Minecraft forum. Someone specifically said they had made (or were making) a forum about Spore and Minecraft. I wish I could remember who...

And even if it was Birdie, there's no way I'd recommend his site after his "Srew GAC" thread.

Mainly because you're the one who always exaggerates and warrants me posting back with my thoughts on the matter. Most of the other users post reasonable opinions. Yours tend to be... Extreme. Either way, I never suggested we turn this into an MC forum, perhaps we both misunderstood each other.

Anyway, I'm thinking about making this a "Universal" forum. Hopefully where minecraft and spore can exist peacefully and we can finally hit that "Off topic" argument in the face with a shovel and throw it in a VERY deep grave. Making two individual forums is not the best idea. Splits the community up, which in my opinion isn't the best way to keep the community itself healthy.

Anyone with this "Branching out" idea? It'll require a TRUCKLOAD of effort by 3D and I, but we should be able to do it if the majority of the community wants it.

I think that'd be okay as long as our main logo and forum objective remains Spore. I wish you and 3D luck, it'll be hard to do it with only you two, but I think you could do it. 3D and me have been doing some great work on the lab, I'm really gettin' the hang of it.

So I'll be on your side with that Hutch, I just don't want the soul purpose of GAC to go away. happy.

Cool...it feels much nicer to agree with you..I don't like arguments. :(

But I'm also with Frostie, I'd really want it to stay the way it is, but It is your choice and MC IS very popular.

PostSubject: Minecraft section?   Tue Aug 30, 2011 5:48 am

Maybe we could create a Minecraft section in Off-Topic, or even in Adventures. I don't want GAC to turn away from Spore, but I'm fine as long as it's just accommodating Minecraft (as opposed to mixing in Minecraft content with Spore stuff). That way we won't have complete assimilation (if we follow Lazar's pun).

And I don't like arguments either. :D

Alright, so what I gleaned from this thread, I'm actually in support of to an extent. I think MC adventure maps are a great idea. Collaborating on MC maps and stuff like that is great. It's like an MC version of what we used to do. However, I have to agree with Lazer to an extent, that we shouldn't overhaul this whole site to be MC, as I think that wouldn't be really...well, acceptable. I'm not saying anyone SAID that we would overhaul this place, but I'm just sayin' I don't think we should make it simply MC.

So, I have a few ideas in mind, and if anyone has other suggestions, leave 'em below.

1. Condense as Delta said.
2. Create a new Forum
3. Put MC and Spore in equal emphasis. Meaning, each have an equal share of the site's new configuration.

I'll attempt to do whatever you guys decide on. I don't promise perfection, but I can try to the best of my knowledge to do as you decide. Further, I support the idea of creating adventure maps together, I think it's a cool idea. As a final option, though, we could leave things as they are. Have an opinion? Leave it below, but don't just RAEG or get all nostalgic and snobby.

It was Glass and Lone. I don't even know if that forum's active anymore.

EDIT: Yep, I checked it out and it looks quite dead to me.

And I think we should have a Minecraft section here on GAC.

I personally think it's fine the way it is. Just because it's a Spore forum doesn't mean it has to be 100% about spore, as you all will agree.

As far as I'm concerned, this forum has always been a place where people with a common interest -- Spore -- gather and discuss a variety of topics that interest them; whether it's Spore, Minecraft, Doctor Who or that wacky thing some people like to call the 'real world'.

The prerogative to branch out widely from the topic of Spore is what separates us from the Sporum and makes this a fun place to be, and on consideration of the number of directly Spore-related threads compared to Minecraft threads, I can see that giving Minecraft its own section might not be a bad idea. Just the one, mind. razz I don't think we really need to do anything more major than that and condensation of our current sections list.

@3D: I'm not sure about your second point -- creating a whole new forum is a bit of an extreme length that would split this small community... unless you meant 'section' rather than 'forum'. Wondering


As an aside, I think I might create a separate thread to discuss cutting down on the number of sections we have.

Well we are overdue for a makeover anyway. These things need to be changed. I will lock this because the discussion can continue in another thread. If you feel it should not be locked I will unlock it as always.
