Thanks TheAperture.com for your comments. The reason why mindbender chose to open this up for public discussion, was that last summer when the changes began, it was all private. Quite a few regular members within the community felt jaded that they were not given a proper chance to voice their opinions/concerns before we went through with the plan. So, we tried to keep this private and between the staff only, but that only ticked people off.
Currently, we are working hard to please everyone (the newcomers that perhaps do not mind the nas-central.org structure, and the longtimers that helped build this community, and wish to preserve our identity).
The decision has been made to keep nas-central.org, following bbradley's model. However nas-central.org will become separate and no longer represent the buffalo/melco community. We have the difficulty of choosing a domain name that equally represents the linkstation, kurobox, and terastation sub-communities (which was what started this whole issue). We do however have a tentative plan to find a better suited name that'll help preserve our buffalo centric identity and settle this once and for all.
Please visit this poll to learn about the plan, and cast your vote.
