I've asked to be on staff. I've emailed. I've PMed. I've gone to channel. I got a couple of replies, once. One from Swamp, in fact. Problem is, his reply pointed me to a mambo install (which I fucked around with), but did not include any directions of how to, say, log in to SFTP to do any real site updates. I couldn't even edit the damn default theme at all, because those didn't have the right file permissions.
I've asked if I was on staff again or not, and got ignored. I went to channel to ask Swamp directly if I was going to be ALLOWED to help or not, and got ignored. I've PMed and asked, and got ignored. I've posted rants on the fucking forums, and they get a little snip comment - but still, nothing is done.
Last I checked, it's September 10th. The last update on the front page is August 25th, and fuckall if I know if that was hand-coded or anything. You have a broken ass forum, broken ass news page, half of your damn utility pages are missing, the ones that are there are out of date... NOTHING IS BEING DONE.
You want some shit done? Step off your fucking "I need to get laid" box, give a couple of people FTP access and back the fuck off. Every damn comment I've heard about TRYING to bring forward a new look to the site was that Swamp shot them all down because he didn't LIKE HOW THEY LOOKED. Well fuck all! That's a great reason to let things languish and DIE, isn't it?
