As far as I am concerned COTI seems to be an excellent forum for Traveller.

Actually, there are 10 sections of this forum that don't have a moderator, including this one. There was one assigned awhile back though never did see that one post anything.

The Classic Traveller forum on CotI is a good one, with a great deal of information, and plenty of helpful people. It also tends to be quite lively, with a fair bit of activity.

And for my part, I apologize for my role in the derailment. That discussion should have gone off-line, or better yet, simply ignored.

I don't think this post breaks my promise to "drop it", but, in parting, I do want to make clear that I think CotI is a fantastic place for Traveller information, especially my favorite version (is there any other? :D ), Classic Traveller.

And, there are a lot of good people still posting at CotI.

The problem there is the mods--not the other members or the lines of discussion.

I hated to post this, because I am dropping it. But, I do think its important to make that distinction.

Who knows. I may return to CotI one day. I've just had enough of the mods for now.

Time heals all wounds, though, as they say.

We'll see about the future.

I never had any problems with COTI mods, but I rarely post there ( I only lurk there now... ) because of the level of arguments concerning canon minutia which sometimes even involved some finicky rules-lawyering and personal interpretations about what is and is not 'Traveller'. I felt that sharing ideas often led to 'discussions that seemed petty to me. This is a hobby and sharing there just didn't bring much enjoyment, so I stopped.

I pretty much post my ideas only on SFRPG now. I feel SFRPG is more open to non-standard/non-canon ideas than other boards.

This is just my opinion.

When I became a mod I was given mod rights on almost every area that existed at the time, since then many new areas have cropped up for which I have not ben ngiven mod rights, it's one way to spot the newer areas of the forums :)

Wow, this thread got lively over the weekend. Hardly surprising to find that Supplement Four is at the heart of it.
