Re: Mithrandir clone xoopsbrasil for consider inactive
Mikhail seems to think that if there are other Brazillians working with XOOPS, they are working against him.
Mikhails project at dev.xoops.org has no files released, no tracker items, no forum posts and no news items. Therefore I consider it inactive. However, it has not much to do with me approving another Brasil translation project since they might not cover the same areas - at least it should have time to show whether one of the projects are superfluous.
We have registered www.xoops.com
because we could - and we did not want some unrelated website hog the XOOPS name by putting up something else on www.xoops.com
WF-Projects also have a .com domain, but I don't consider it a commercial project.
Mikhail has been warned repeatedly and shown no willingness to understand why or change his behaviour. For that, his account has been closed (not deleted, but inaccessible).
I am sorry that I had to resort to this kind of actions and hope that the rest of the community understands why this has been done.
I am also sorry that the community has had to put up with Mikhail's outbursts, but we had to see if the warnings had any effect before going to these kinds of measures.
Let me use this opportunity to also stress that good behaviour is for everyone here. It may seem that we have taken sides in this, but I can assure you that this is not the case. We will be monitoring the new official support sites in Brasil as much as we can to ensure that Mikhail's fears are ungrounded and that anyone can get support on any of our official support sites.
I'm so sorry that it had to come to this.
