If CZ would make ForumWarz open source we could finally have things like a Forumwarz Iphone app or a ForumWarz Facebook app and it would allow some of the FWZ users that are always posting their ideas on the boards to actually implement some of them within the game without having to wait for Crotch Zombie to do it for them.

CZ contains Evil Trout, so saying CZ and mods would have sufficed

correct?

anyway,

that wouldn’t be “open-source” ; it would be “partially open-source”

aka “not much different than it is right now”

It’s not like there wouldn’t be rules in place to try and stop people from going in and screwing with the game.

That makes it not open source.

What I meant by that was that it’s not like there wouldn’t be rules in place to keep people from screwing with the game. Now, these rules are not up for me to determine. The responsibility for that goes to people like CZ and the moderators.

Maybe make it so that anyone can **** around with the code but ET chooses which ****s actually effect the real used code.

like a sandbox?

as in “u can **** around with a copy of the code”

and then “submit to ET”

and then if CZ likes it, they implement it, and everyone profits

and if CZ doesn’t like it, they discard it, and no one gets hurt

MY MEMORY IS THAT OF A SMALL GRAPE

I cannot see any reason why open-sourcing would benefit the site at all.

I’m sure if you actually had the knowledge to make an INCIT app for the Iphone ET would help you out and supply some code. But that’s not open source and a very specific case.

All I see happening is people re-hosting the game on external sites making crappy parodies of a parody.

Some people could do cool stuff with some of the source. He knows who they are and if ET wanted he could contract them in with a non-disclosure agreement to do specific work. Maybe creeppipe on the iphone, invariel on the dom page sort of thing.

How would ET actually know who to seek out to do these things. I think if ForumWarz was Open Source in a sort of way like GenerichHaxor just suggested it work out where all those things would get done in a faster and more efficient manner than just having ET going on an endless search to find people to do stuff for him.

ET knows. Trust me. It’s not like he’s a hermit living in a chat-less internet; he talks to people and people seek him out to talk.

I’d rather see work go to people who know their stuff and can do a good job than the entire site library go to everyone and be desecrated.

I think you should take a look at this Tubsweetie.

I dunno, I still think it’s a bad idea. This site is ET’s livelihood. Open source and source of income just don’t agree with me.
