Well, to clarify, I wouldn't say it's the direct successor of Omnimaga, but rather the direct successor of Omnimaga as it used to be until July 2011 (or arguably, November 2013)

Well, I would have liked to show up and say "nope, I'm actually Dark Storm", but you guessed correctly DJ Omnimaga - the principle of least surprise, I guess. I'll make sure to tell you if I ever manage to write a decent piece of music (which I doubt, but who knows, I'd even say I'm on something good right now).

So it was you mazhat who sent all those folks to my house? Well, thanks a lot. I'm still stuck with them and I'm not sure they'll let go of me before a few more hours. Especially the Canadians, they obstinately refuse to leave unless I give up on this mission. They seem pretty influential around here :P

I really don't know much about communities that originated in other countries than France. Could you explain a bit what you mean, DJ Omnimaga? I would really like to know what happened.

Actually Dark Storm already has an account here :P. As for what happened on Omni, the first post of the following topic should explain more in details, although it doesn't mention everything since the post is incredibly long to begin with https://codewalr.us/index.php?topic=676.0

Thanks for this! I read the whole post and I pretty much realize how hard it can be when communities like this are passed on to new maintainers. As for what CodeWalrus stands for, I would think that being transparent is a good habit. Maybe we actually need to be clearer about what happens on Planète Casio sometimes. :P

Well to be fair, my biggest worry about PC was the risks that the v5.0 upgrade would break all old URLs and force other community websites to update their old news, articles, tutorials and download links to point to the new locations. Both Omnimaga and United-TI did this and half of the community got pissed at them.

And sometimes it doesn't take a new owner to change everything on a community. Just look at Capcom and Konami <.<. What was bad about the Omni changes is that as the founder, I not only spent over half a decade trying to make the Omni forums what it is while trying to persuade the rest of the staff to keep it as it is no matter if I remain admin or not, but also I was forced to step down due to health issues and certain community users outside Omni and afterwards it quickly became clear that I would not ever be allowed to return in the team again.

Man, that article about the omnimaga website is really sad.
I wasn't there personally, so I can't form an opinion,
but regardless, I hope they know what they are doing :(

@mazhat They  do, in the sense that they partly achieved  their goals. They wanted to make the site more attractive to Cemetech users and managed to attract a few people from there, but I wish it was not done at the expense of the traditional Omni users.

@Pieman I think you did :P
