I am proud of you. You couldn't say that better than me.
I most likely thought in the same way as you, but I couldn't say that. Thanks!

I want to say it more nicely, like this:

I give some respect for the thought of sharing racepack. I liked racepacks too. But sometimes it wasn't nice to go through all the "hundred" races and fix the errors, tho...

However, saying that everyone is "kind (of) selfish", is mean, because they do not share...what? races or racepacks?
People shared races and racepacks, a long time ago. But I think I know what you mean...
Hopefully you mean that other WCS server hosts do not share their racepacks. Some do.
If they don't, it's okay to be selfish. I most likely wouldn't share my server racepack, because it's stupid thing to do.
Why should I give my racepack to other hosts? lol Makes no sense, at all, if your server is doing fine...if your server is dying, then I can understand why you'd share your racepack.

About your server. I checked your server a long time ago. Nothing special there. I didn't enjoy it.
Hopefully your 60+ races are actually selfmade and not 99% c/p. Now that I said this..you maybe do not feel like sharing your racepack anymore. Are you selfish?

Hello specdo,

The discussion on "sharing" versus "keeping content for yourself" is an everlasting discussion where opinions strongly differ between content holders across the world, as you can see by the replies by some of our elder members. Anyhow, I'm sure you meant no offense.

You are definitely welcome to share your races so that others may use some of them or perhaps even your entire racepack. It is somewhat noteworthy that you still manage to run a WCS server in this day and age whilst many have already stopped hosting WCS servers (I guess everyone just got old or something). Anyhow, I wish you the best of luck with your server and in general.

Btw, feel free to post some server info in the "Promote your server" section of the forums so that others can read up on what it is actually about and learn more about what you're trying to accomplish.

Anyways why you all code so late? Or early? Don't you guys sleep at all?
Sleep? What's that? Just put a wire up your arse and charge while you code during the night. Doesn't all do that, or is it just me??

You definitely mention a good point, but then again it is in the same idea of why companies do not share proprietary information about their goods if they changed their market. Also, there is the sense of ownership and taking pride in the idea of it being a person's property, something that they created and had so much enjoyment in doing so, in which the idea of just simply giving it all away could be a strike at ego. There is also never a say that a person will ever be back, so keeping it hidden is a smart move if they ever plan on reviving their server later on.

Ultimately, the biggest issue goes back towards what Muerte addressed; the idea of respecting the community. Sure, it can be frustrating that people do not want to share, but name calling does not change an outcome and rather angers people, as you've seen by some member's responses.

I will say, it would be nice if you released your pack, hopefully it could be of great use to some people!

Take care and code on!

Reading through this thread makes me think about releasing my server's racepack as well, unfortunately though the races.ini I use is coded for block format and there are a lot of external blocks being called so idk how that would work in terms of an upload. I would almost need to create a dedicated webhost for people to download the collective wcs folder for my server.
If you like WCS and are from AUS/NZ drop by our server to take a look.
