I appreciate the irony that it gets no traffic because of the website problems which in order to be fixed would require traffic to be here.

Thanks for explaining Nate. Makes sense. I was just 14 when I joined OWF, and it's funny looking back now aged 26 I'm just glad it's still around now and people still actually post here! Although I thought there might be some more activity due to Soulstorm released recently...

We're working on the assumption that fixing the problems wouldn't fix the traffic. No-one uses forums any more, especially not for series that haven't put out a good game in 16 years.

Though I partially agree, the forums were just as broken a few years ago before Soulstorm was released when there still was a group still excited and willing to talk about it on the forums. I don't expect it would boom in popularity like in 2001, but throwing obstacles at newcomers only made them want to join less.

I will embark on a great plot to destroy big tech and restore OWF to its slightly less dead state
