In all seriousness, them making it read only, with little explanation and no for-warning is a slap in the face to the people who still used the site. 

The way I see it is its there site to close down if they choose, but the people making the decision should face the audience and give some sort of explanation. Instead of sending animal out there with some weak ass post basically amounting to "sorry guys, TRS is closed". 

This entire situation reeks of some crybabies bitching and moaning behind the scenes to the admin until the admin said "fuck it, were just shutting it down".

The people who get screwed over the most by this stupid decision by TRS are the people like Harry and 1UP, who use the website as a hub to release their SOCOM content. The whole "message animal if you want a post updated" is a really inconvenient way for them to get a patch updated etc. They arnt gonna bother doing that when they see how long it will take to have a post edited. They are just simply gonna post somewhere else, discord or another website altogether. 

You are probably onto something and I honestly wouldnt be surprised but I am not gonna speculate. The fact is in the last week more drama occurred but almost all of it was kept off the website and like I said, it wouldnt have even warranted a forum closing up because its the same old same old that we all have seen before.

TRS was supposed to be the HUB for all things Socom. They literally just slammed the door on all the stuff those guys were doing on X Link, Socom on PC, and all the work they were doing on trying to get the servers up and running again. 

I agree, those guys have no reason to bother with "updating" anything. ...and what? the rest of us are supposed to go check TRS to see if someone has jumped through the hoops of updating something? and even if they did we can provide zero feedback...lol screw that.

I changed my avatar back over there to a "read only" variety. 

I encourage others to express themselves in a similar manner. Particularly the three of you that are on the main page in the recent post sidebar.

Classless move. For weak reasons. I have no issue hanging here. Same guys different site. No drama and flip flopping.

That right there shows that shutting them down was punitive on their part. Why on Earth would they freeze that feature otherwise?

Since it's relevant I'll just post what I responded to Buchanans with when he PMed me last night:

"I'm sorry you don't agree with our decision on the timing of the change but we felt it was the best option when we considered the personality types of our more eccentric members and what they might do if given advance warning of a forum lock up. Now add all the people who don't even normally post but for some reason have a reason to dump on this place like SOF fanboys or just some lurking troll like this community has always had.

Think of how much chaos one person could cause if they had 9 or 10 hours while I was at work to do whatever they wanted. Then multiply that when everyone sees what's going on and they all jump on the bandwagon. You know we have more than enough of those type of people in our community to do some major damage.

So again I'm sorry it was so sudden but the staff all agreed that ripping the band-aid off quickly was the most favorable course of action."

The talk about changing avatars is evidence of this possibility, now multiply that for the more vitriolic community members. We also didn't want any thread owners deleting or changing threads last minute out of spite and depriving everyone of the information contained within like the patch or emulator threads.
