Haven't been impressed with it either. The beta -> release was way too short. There's too much drama. The staff is a bit annoying at times. Glad .net didn't merge with that hot mess.

Drama is basically a feature of Dodian, it's famous for its drama

But yeah, .com might be a bit too ambitious for how much time has gone into it, how quickly it was put out, and how few people are actually working on it.

I also offered to put in some help to get things progressing a bit faster, but Plasma never took me up on the offer for whatever reason. So I guess that's that.

Now, I don't know what happens at all on .com, was nothing for me there so I left it and stopped paying attention to it.

It's a lot of work to pump out enough well planned content that actually retains players. Also most players are only hooked on the idea of the nostalgic feeling, and that won't last long.
.com lasted all of 2 months and that's being nice. The owner abandoned it 3 weeks in. Arch has been picking up the pieces since then and it held atleast 15 players until around 2 months.

The players didn't gradually stop playing because the hype of the nostalgic feeling faded away... it was because of the management style of Plasma...or lack thereof.

Why throw away .net?s reputation of being a stable dodian community?

Why throw away a community driven, open source project in favor of a closed source, premium membership model.

Don?t get me wrong, I?m just as excited as anyone that the original Uber 3.0 data will be available soon, but I like what we have here too
I understand your concerns, and it's clear that you value the existing .net community and the open-source model. Decisions about domain ownership, project direction, and community involvement can be complex and depend on various factors, including the goals and preferences of those leading the projects.

Can you further elaborate on that?

It's encouraging to see efforts being made to strengthen the Dodian community.
