This is something I've been kicking around in my head for a while. It seems
the elite scene is sort of in disarray. It seems everyone agrees that the scene
sucks but no one knows why or who or when or whatever.
But, before any discussion like that can take place, it should be decided what
exactly *is* elite? What determines eliteness? Why is there a number of boards
in the nation that seem to draw intelligent, ambitious users and are generally
uppity-up about it? Are the current trends on art/lit boards to vote upon users
just a remnant of past days when NUV was a security measure, or is there some
way that certain users just aren't wanted/needed. How does one determine from a
NUV message if a person is worthy?
Further, where are the trends taking the elite scene? Warez, lit, art, and hp?
Is hp almost dead? Are warez/lit boards more popular because its easier to jump
into that scene? What?
Just looking for some thoughts on why we call ourselves elite and what that
should mean in reference to bulletin boards.
