It is a stickied thread, so (waves hand) the Forum will forgive me.
This was a cycle, the matter that this OP addresses. I thought it had ended with the completion of the major mods, but apparently old habits die hard.
I have been guilty of discouragement. My rectification for this was the Script shack; and that Script shack has a disclaimer.
Ultimately, I find it amazing that new people still want to make mods for these games. Makes me wanna scratch some rust off...
Reality checks, delivered with respect, should be allowed. Necro's of old topics that a newb has confusion about should be forgiven and answered. Trolls should be squashed.
I am just happy to return to a forum with some semblance of sanity. I am afraid the BSN brings out the disgusted angry Sith-leaning Qui.
