Gone for a while... again!
Hi alltogether

Some of you may have noticed my absence in the last weeks, i.e. GOTWs were not regularly updated with the exception of today. This has a few reasons:

1# Over the holidays I got terribly lazy. Sorry for that. Delicious fondue and Swiss chocolate were an accessory to the crime.

2# As you can see the list of available Neo Geo games to post as GOTW slowly sinks to zero, with a handful of titles left. Of course now there are tons of non-Neo Geo titles like the ones for the NGPC, Atomiswave etc. But still keep in mind that this site's URL and name still contains the term NEOGEO...

and the most important

3# In fact the recent days took me long to prepare me for a 6 months trip to South East Asia I'll be doing from February 1st on. This simply means I'm not able to write the GOTWs for a half year until August.

Now we again procceed to the topic of the continuation of the GOTWs. Do you guys still care about the GOTW to be continued? Or is there someone specific who wants to do it as usual?

Hey Murikov, thanks for the update.

Having a new GoTW is good and all, but maybe we can do a "GoTW : revisited" type of thing. Meaning that we go back to GoTW greatest hits, the threads with most responses. I think that this might be good, as we have a lot of new members who probably didn't get to comment on some of their favorite games. That way, it'll be easy to have GoTW without much effort.

If nobody cares about GoTW, that's fine too.

Just my 2 cents.

Murikov, hope you have a safe trip.

Well, welcome back again, for a little while, I see why things kinda slowed down for a bit, but I guess it was kinda necessary. But yeah, this site isn't what it used to be back then, although still kicking I guess, but the latter would be to do what you can.

So yeah, it looks like GotW will either...1. Take a long ass break, 2. I'll probably work on them, and 3. Um, I don't wanna say cancel it or anything, but...>_>

Whatever happens, I just hope there would be more discussion of the past and present stuff occurring to GotW, but we'll see when the time comes.
You'll be sorely missed here, Muri but I hope you have an amazing experience in Asia! Hope we can look forward to some cool stories when you return from your trip. Thumbs Up My attendance on the boards has been scarce lately too, though for far more mundane reasons than yours. Wink I hope to improve on that fairly soon...

Regarding GOTW, I've also thought about 2D's suggestion of revisiting popular games covered in the past. It could attract some fresh, new opinions and re-kindled interest! I'd be all for it if enough members feel the same way.

Anyone else agree?
I would maybe, but lets just continue on stuff that hasn't been discussed yet, in the near future, maybe there would be a re-visited section to it, but there's already the boards for all the GotW games linked in almost each and every thread.

Which is why it'll be so easy to make those games GoTW again. All the person (in charge) needs to do is make the proper announcements on the front page, and change the GoTW Icon. Simple as that.

Well, good luck with that, gotta ask the mods who are in charge of it to do that...>_>
From the looks of it, Muri... nobody except Stray, Chiba and myself care enough about GotW to post about it.

Looks like nobody will take up the baton once you're on vacation.

Cheers for your input so far, guys! Also thanks a lot for your encouraging words, this Saturday it's already happening. Thumbs Up

It's just a pity that allegedly no one's really up for even reviving old GOTW threads - on the other side I understand that not everyone has enough time these days, alongside with their jobs, families or other interests. Note too that certain people only show up at weekends at NGFL.

I'm coming back to this thread before I go, no worries. Smile
Apologies for the late post in this thread Murikov. Have a safe and great vacation my friend.Mai
Thanks dude and everybody else!

So that's it. If anyone's interested I occasionally might post some photos in my travel blog, depending on how much WiFi access I'll get during my trip:

I'll try too to check out this site occasionally, but my NGFL activity will be much lower than it already was.

With this in mind I wish you guys a good time and take care!

I think there should be a handful of members devoted to GOTW. Each member should focus on a particular area of SNK (fighters, 'greatest hits', NGPC, generally obscure, etc.). In turn everyone gets to contribute. I'd like to focus on NGPC games whenever I'd be my time to contribute.

Another issue is the distribution of mod privileges; a certain someone was MIA at the time I was asked to do GOTW. As a result, the GOTW entry on the center of the home page, as well as the pic/link on the side of the home page were delayed for several days. General communication re. these matters, can be improved. I suggest making a schedule for those interested in contributing.
Tobal, the major trick there involves getting the Mods to become active at the site again.

They have forsaken us. : [

I'm an admin. Smile

Just shoot me a PM and I can change the GOTW stuff. I may not always be online on Sunday nights since I usually have to work early on Monday mornings, but if you let me know ahead of time I can make sure things get changed in a somewhat timely manner. I've definitely taken a few leaves of absence in the past but I don't foresee that happening anytime soon.
Thanks mojo, In the future I'll make sure to give you a few days notice should I require your service.

Speaking of mods and admins, I'd like to hear what the rest have to say about the fate of GOTW.

So the current list of those interested are:
2-D, Stray, Chiba & myself
Have a good time in Asia Murikov Thumbs Up Hope you wil still be able to post on the forum when you can.

I like the idea of revisting GOTWs. There's a lot of new members, and opinions change over time.

Very late, but take care Murikov!

Do we have an official taker on GotW? Or what's the general consensus on it?
Without love, the truth cannot be seen.
I was thinking of doing them again myself, but since you used to do it too back then, but lately, you haven't been around much like before, but hey, that's not a problem though, times change, and you could do it again and continue. >_>

In the meantime, there might be some more soon, or as some people mentioned, rather do GotW flashbacks or something like that. @_@
F U Stray, I don't want you doing fuckin' GoTW.

PS: Just kidding.
