    This is a response from THIS thread

    All that was supposed to happen on the 10th was a holding page go up - thats it -

    what kind of holding page? nobody even had made it all we knew it was going to be a flash movie.

    I got excited at the last minute (an hour before) and decided to make that statment in the forum - no-one from the team knew themselves. that includes moderators too.

    In all the excitment I guess I forgot my responsibilities and I should have made a post letting the moderators know. I was told to make the mods aware as we were in IRC and we knew- I am sorry I let the moderators down.

    It was all last minute stuff, Celt had started the movie late because the flash I was trying to arrange was a bit 'pants' and Celt put together his masterpiece.

    We were so rushed for time and the holding page didn't come up due to technical problems it was 28 minutes after 12 that the page came up.

    In true bit style nobody expects the expected from us do they? we are always outrageous and always keep people intrigued and 'wowed' with mental stuff - we are known for that so anything could have happened on the 10th - we let everyone know well in advance that something new and exciting was happening at bit.

    We would *never* sell out like that and the true bit-techers (thats you) know we wouldn't either - we have spent far too much time and money.

    I hope this explains things and I am sorry if people still feel that I have mislead them with false posts and I see their POV but most people could have easily of known that it was false.

    If I wanted to lie and mislead people then I would have made a post like that a week before - and kept people in the dark so Once again I hope that this clears up the confusion and If you still think what I have done is wrong then I am sorry. Feel free to voice your concerns here or email me Koolvin@bit-tech.net.

    Thanks for your time.

    Stay Kool.
    Koolvin.

    What *is* happening in a few hours then? well We will unveil that we are aliens and also that Kna is indeed Elvis.

    Thankyou for apologising for your actions Koolvin.

    I feel people believed your story posted upon the board because Bit-Tech has had money problems in the past with all the hosting charges and that.

    We have all seen Bit-Tech go down once before when the previous host pulled the plug, and I believed what you said because I thought you were an honest and trustworthy person.

    Hi all.

    I was one of the people that at first didnt believe KV would sell out and kept telling people via msn/icq no he wouldnt blah blah.
    I also have a lot of respect for Vin as i know how hard he worked for this site., thats what i think annoyed me more in that i felt let down when no one posted to say otherwise for several hours.

    I have spoken to him via msn and i now understand where he is coming from and should of seen that in the first place.

    I could go in to more detail but i dont feel it would be appropriate as they are private and personal feelings. Needless to say that my faith is now restored the mod masters......thats here:)

    Many thanks to RTT for being a go between.

    Long live BIT

    Cheers All
    GaviN

    For what its worth I think that Koovin is being way to hard on himself. What happened on the 10th has been explained over the last 24 hours. Its a shame that not all of us were able to see that hoax for what is was, nothing more nothing less. For people to still be upset and start pointing fingers hides the real reason of what we are waiting for and that is the relaunch.

    Koovin: You have nothing to be ashamed of, hold you head up high and be proud to be BIT.

    Koolvin, I understand what went on on the 10th, and from what I see, I can see no reason for you to appologise, apart from if it makes you feel better in yourself. I think what you did was cruel at first, but its kind in a way, because it gets people thinking what is going to happen next! Then the flash movie comes on, and then its mmmm...just one of those marketing ploys!

    I really think this new design is not overhyped at all, I think the new site looks great, and I cant see where there is an anti-climax in any of this. Plus I even though the site is not fully operational yet, its another one of those guessing games, making it even more exciting when it does actually become fully operational.

    I really think all you lot over there at BiT have done yourself proud, and all the flak you have been getting is not deserved, I know what it takes to redesign a new site (I've got some coursework on just that at the moment in Uni!) And all the hard work is worth the wait!

    Many thanks, and I cant wait for the site to be full open ;) ;)

    Biggie

    Yah, Koolvin was just building suspense. No harm in that.

    As for all those people saying they'll never come back. Well, I'm here from .au I've found a board here with modders. HEAPS of them, however, none of them have the inspiration or dedication as the staff @ bit-tech.

    I don't think bit-tech will lose users at all, and Koolvin's done nothing to be worried about, and, at the end of the day all of us admire his work whether we want to or not.

    btw, the new site looks brilliant!

    Well, I have read all of this with some interest. Yes I had a heart attack after the posting as I have found this the first forum that I have truely liked. As soon as the Flash came on, which my 2 year old thinks is great and dances to it (any chance of a dowload) I took it as a joke.

    I understand that some peps were upset, but life doesn't have to be so serious. I still cant see what the fuss is and the fact that he pulled it on his mods as well, makes me smile more, all equal as they say.:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
