You guys are basically calling him liars no? If you feel like that I feel like it'd be better just to not say anything tbh. Sorry if you feel offended, tis just the way I feel.
Ignore the cynical naysayers who'd rather see the game die for their own amusement that see it actually have something resembling a faint hope of survival.

Things are moving along, albeit slowly, partly due to Magpie being based in Aussie and Azzer being in the UK

I'm actually quite encouraged and pleased about this turn of events, the cynical, pessimistic part of me just can't be turned off so easily Up the Bushies!

It would. I tried it once, broke my toes; got the flu; my xbox broke; my cat died; and my stomach acquired an ulcer

So your assessment would be bang on good sir.

and for my part, i posted this being a troll thread long before anything actually happened.

i also am pleased if things get fixed. however, i think it's unreasonable on everyone's part to keep chomping at the bit as if the wand can be waived and bing it's fixed!

as far as we've been led to believe, only an agreement was reached. no money has exchanged. admin privileges/passwords haven't happened. things take time and going off like a laboratory full of mice afflicted with ADHD isn't going to help things. Actually may even discourage new players with such drivel.

so haters going to hate and can say whatever they want, but a mary poppings everything is fruity atmosphere isn't going to fix things or help as much as they want to believe.

tl;dr - when something is going to happen and you need to be aware - you'll be made aware.

Its always interesting, though, to see who is least comfortable in this type of environment and who would rather things to be dark, dreary and cynical. (You, in case I'm not being clear enough).

From what I've seen and from the conversations I've had with Max/Magpie there's every reason for enthusiasm and optimism. Ignore the boring/anti-change individuals lurking about. Garrett is miserable and misery loves company

Well yeah, that's pretty obvious. But a 'Mary Poppins everything is fruity atmosphere' is a happier one.

The way you feel isn't going to change anything, so why be cynical and negative when you can be happy and optimistic? It's so easy to lighten the mood just by taking a different perspective, just because it doesn't matter.

For example,I had a **** night sleep last night. During an awake moment I suddenly realised I had left out my compound on a bench in chem labs. It took me 12 hours to make and if it was thrown out etc I was screwed. But then I thought, there is absolutely nothing I can do about it, so stop giving ****s, chill ***** and go to sleep. Do I did, and I was happy, not ******** myself.

Basically, if people are being happy and optimistic, ****ing awesome, keep it up.

andddddddd, i'm not impatient at this point!! things are moving 'forward' at least, and it's encouraging!! and you can't expect the transfer of the ownership to happen by snapping fingers especially magpie being in australia and all!!

being realistic about the speed in which things will move is hardly cynical. you simply can't refrain from being pompous and arrogant. you want to believe i'm miserable and that's fine. whatever helps you out at night bro.

There is reason to be optimistic, but there is also reason to be sceptical. Hardly any of us know Magpie. I don't think I've ever spoken to him. And even if he seems like a perfectly nice guy, he could turn out to be a complete jackass (no offence, Magpie). We don't know if he'll be a good admin. We don't know if he is going to make good changes (from our perspective). We really don't know much at all.

There are a lot of possibilities and imo it is understandable to not be purely optimistic when we don't know what is going to happen.

+1. Toby is right, as usual. DA is spouting the usual nonsense.

We're all optimistic (i think), but we aren't all over the moon unicorns and candy poop about it. Be sensible, not retarded.
