I wanna have my Necta back! It's one of the last refugiums of an otherwise crazy loud hectic world wide web! Small, cozy, Web 1.0'ish. One of my daily sites to surf to!

Sad to see it go. Nectarine had a great library (the best?) of songs and metadata of demoscene history. Also, my favourite list is lost :/

ps. Hi Serpent and Rapture o/

BIG NEWS!!!

Just got a message from Arab! Before handing the database to us he wants a Dodge Viper, an SX-64, two crates of Dark Lord Imperial Stout and a poodle puppy.

Might we be able to deliver those? Anybody who could contribute?

Please everybody, your help is needed right now!
la mett: lol he really wrote that? ;D

Nectarine will be back, that's for sure.

Some points after settling my thoughts:
- thanks to all who expressed their dismay at my person, much appreciated, you have my almost undivided attention going forward - i won't forget (cocky bastard grabs popcorn)
- some backend stuff needs to be rewritten (and the need was expressed on the forum long before the shutdown, nobody stepped in to do that in the open). i have now found a developer who is willing to help - no thanks to anybody in this thread.
- artists who expressed their concerns regarding the db and their inclusion therein - i hear ya. i will either remove your songs personally, update the status to something more positive - banned is for sure a bit too strong word to show that a tune was rejected - or give you the option to manage your own tunes (this needs development, so for now please be patient).

ETA: unknown.

But you didn't ask.

In fact, you SPECIFICALLY TOLD US not to mail you, AND you said that Pouet posts won't help.

you never asked for help at least here in the first place. you shut everyone out and bashed the thread.

I did ask - multiple times before - imagine me loosing faith in anybody who has ever been to nectarine to step up the game. I did. And so i didn't. And specifically asked not to contact, because it would be pointless.

First wave of stilted but in the end effect fake helpfulness would die out after a week.

So please, just stop.

And i mean, it's only fair for you to _DEMAND_ what y'all been taking for granted over the past 11 years.

That's on you, not on me.
added on the 2018-06-25 16:50:52 by arab arab
Hey guys, how about giving Arab a break and stop posting crap here that will only make things worse?

Unless he's a complete moron, which he surely is not, he surely got everybody's concern and opinion by now.

Just let time do its work, be patient and go do something else in the meantime.

I suppose your view was that everyone using the site were just ungrateful bastards, and you're the lone hero, struggling along, trying to hold it all together until reaching this breaking point. Your reply shows that you still believe this, a week later, after "cooling off".

If you continue to view all site users as adversaries, then why even run the site? What's in it for you?

Why not pass it off to people who would actually want to run it?

Why yes, i still do. I really do. lol

@hornpipe2 get you shit straight:

- i never expressed open hostility to the nectarine community
- i never personally attacked anyone using nectarine
- i've been most polite towards the whole community during the time site was up and running (tho i might have expressed strong opinions now and then regarding requesting and general queue quality)

yet, for all of the above - all i saw in this thread was:
- assumptions
- acusations
- asshatery
- smartassery
- ect.

imagine me changing my attitude in the end effect. but - yer entitled to your opinion. keep it. best to yourself.
added on the 2018-06-25 17:02:48 by arab arab
p.s. i still want to run it, but you're not going to dictate the terms.
added on the 2018-06-25 17:03:47 by arab arab
And just to be clear:

- i adore everyone who - during the years - helped maintain the song db, did uploads, moderated, made custom css, contributed patches and helped in general
- cheers to the everlasting nectarine revision team and all the photos we took toegether
- i <3 everyone who sent me support beers

fucks to all the suckers who think they can bring me, the nectarine community, or in fact the demoscene down just by posting a few words. you write your own history.

what's in it for me? nothing. i do it for the demoscene and thats enough of a gratification itself. always did, always will.

Aaand if you wan't to personally punch me in the face - come do it at the last Riverwash. It's just around the corner (i might hit back tho).
