great mag, is there anyway to download them in bulk?

Maybe bundling them in batches of 12 would make it easier to download older issues, just a thought.

Also dropbox links prior to issue 55 seem to be missing, here are a few examples

Imagine the feeling when you position your tanks, engines idling, landing gear deployed for a low profile, with firing solutions along a key bottleneck. Then some fether lands a dreadnought behind them in a giant heat shielded coke can.

None, really.

Dakka Dakka has a Facebook Page which randomly (yes, randomly!) posts links to various posts here.

We're looking into ways to make sure that controversial (and quite often locked) threads don't end up there, but it is a work in progress.

Dakka Dakka as an 'entity' remains quite apolitical, as seen on the Rules of the Site page here:

https://www.dakkadakka.com/core/forum_rules.jsp

So anyway, this feels like a reflexive overreaction to something that was misunderstood - wish they would have asked for clarification first.

But best of luck to them wherever they post, of course!

Ok I think I see the post referred to. Yes, it's disgusting and I'm glad to see it was locked, but it is still up there on Twitter and Facebook. A removal and a quick apology of "This is not the type of discussion that we represents us" would go a long way.

Well, not sure about that last part there There are any number of thread topics that will invariably lead to a poop fling and a lock within 3 pages tops, so the thread in question actually seems to pretty accurately describe the community here. Start another thread on the same topic, or a similar one in a week or two, and see if it goes any differently.

Hmm, very curious about what topic this was, anyone want to link?

To darkPrince, good work on your magazine. Some feedback for improvement is that the pictures often have a too heavy filter, which makes the colors look very unnatural. I bought your book as well, and it is the same thing there. I would suggest trying out some different photo editing. Lightening the image and increasing contrast a bit often goes a long way IMO.

Different sections in the mag could also often use a clearer separation. No need to conserve pages in an e-mag

Well, damn. That sucks. I really liked what they were doing, it reminded me of the old days of Specialist magazine (and the game-specific ones before that, like BFG magazine).

I meant about linking it here. I don't really frequent the Mantic forums much.

I'm afraid that if it isn't posted here, I'll quite forget about it entirely, eventually...

...which is not a 'media statement by DakkaDakka' but simply a post made by someone on this forum.

Yes, that's been cleared up already. My point was, regardless it was - and still was of the weekend - promoted on official Dakka social media. The results of which are a fractuing of the community such as this. However small, a simple delete Tweet and an apology that a mistake was made would go a long to show publicly that those views are not the image Dakka wants to have with the wider world.

And with that, I'm done.

If this is the offending article "I'm Not Sexist, But Women Are Ruining The Hobby And Here Are My Reasons - an Essay" then that is a political statement, and the apolitical response is to neither agree nor disagree.
Personally I'm not particularly keen on any business that takes a strong political view towards either the left or right. It is generally wise for business to be apolitical as far as possible, because the political landscape can swing in either direction. We are very diverse in our gaming group and we've all agreed long ago to not discuss politics or religion. It's just better for everyone.

I'm sorry but what? The apolitical response to calls to discriminate is "no, that's not ok". Passively consenting to it isn't apolitical at all.

Pretty much spot on, there's no shame saying the random thread selection still isn't perfect yet.

Not quite. If someone wrote a post extolling the virtues of Apartheid as implemented by the Israeli state and these are the 3 responses:
1) yes it's great
2) no, that's not ok
3) no response

Which of these 3 was the apolitical response?

Not really an apt comparison, as the ramblings of one inadequate dude are not the same as the actions of a government.

Dakka FB can (and should) remove posts that cast the hobby in a bad light. A post that aims to exclude 1/2 of the population of earth from the hobby definitely fits the criteria for removal.

We were once so close to heaven, St. Peter came out and gave us medals; declaring us "The nicest of the damned".

So not being a bigot is "too political", gee I wonder what agenda this serves?

Thread locked for derailment.

We can have a discussion about how the Dakka Dakka Facebook account links with Dakka Dakka content (if someone wants to start a thread in the N&B subforum) but the summary is: the owners and staff also do not want to see controversial content promoted through Facebook even if there is some room for discussing controversial subjects on the forum itself. We're working on figuring out the best way to screen for that.
