    Hi

    Should quakeone.com open a position for "Editor" so we can have many candidates in charge of "top news" (front page)?

    Should they receive some contribution ($)?

    Should we vote for the #1 Editor and have others be assistant (journalist) or into a kind of rotation (they have their "month")?

    Please don't let Mindz alone with all the responsibilities... P9 isn't around anymore and Baker is long gone by now.

    Well, let's put it this way... Quake will be 20 years old in less than 2 years.
    One could start building a free-2-play pak in hopes to get it done,
    OR we could start promoting the place to buy it and how to install it and where to play it, NOW!

    I liked the idea of setting up an area where you can explain to people how to get quake running nowadays. Though i think Quaddicted has that pretty much covered...maybe this could be write ups on how to get people into multiplayer games easier? I like the real time browser and server list stuff myself, but maybe it's not readily apparent to new people what it all is?

    I dunno, just throwing some thought out there.

    Edit: Upon looking at the front page again, I do see a recent threads column but I feel like it gets lost. Maybe that can be more of a centerpiece on the front page?

    I think I was in the middle of adding something to version 1.97 when I last touched the code, so im not sure, it's been over a year.

    Hi WL,
    Please forgive the newbie question as I know virtually nothing about CAX, but does the version you are looking for differ from the one on newyork.servequake.com:26004? This does get some traffic, especially from 2 players called "Q rum Q" and "the Muffin man" whoever they are , and I was just wondering if this what you were after?


    P.S. You will be pleased to hear that Lefty is back kicking and some RuneQuake butt at quake.shmack.net so whatever you said to him appears to have worked

    Kind regards

    Monty

    I don't idle on Quake servers anymore. I am always willing to play a game of CAx but I'm never willing to seed the server.

    Everytime i come home i want to play some damn CAX. No one is around and no sense of posting here because my real world life changes by the minute for things to do. I have however been playing alot more Urban Terror and Quakelive not because i want to play them but because there are people. I still can't seem to get into Counterstrike as it bores me to death. But i do not care to play on an out-dated CAx server such as Rage. I would like to have the freezetag, Qball, koth and so on with the latest stuff.. until i see a server with the latest updates and people playing i will continue to remain in retirement.

    if anyone knows if anything has changed in the last year, i still have all the files from when i was running cax on quake.toked.us

    @Rook not answering - he just does that. I don't think it's personal. Ive sent a PM or 2 that never got a response, and as far as I know R00k and I are on good terms.
