How would you guys feel if I started asking for your phone number to post on SA-MP forum?

What about requiring phone number to play SA-MP? lol
Sorry, you are wrong here. You can create an account on utube without entering the phone number, its optional. I just tested it.

Wow, congratulations

You know SAMP is just a mod right? not a big deal. 1e100's policy of requiring a phone number is great ( for me ) because there will be less ( not 100% but the most ) bot accounts in their platform

It's their product and I bet themselves are nothing without their customers, and same applies here

Oh and don't forget to block g-drive links too.

This is a very good idea. I think that with this approach people will stop creating fake accounts, and there will be fewer cheaters in the game.

SA-MP is on the home stretch. Everyone knows it.
There are still many people who want to play, and many people who believe there is still life in the mod. There are other people qualified to take over and run things, even within the original vision and limitations of the mod. The two of us discussed this years ago and I wasnít willing/able to at the time - but things change and I regret that decision.

Plus there is all the Russian community that is still going strong. I know you donít have much interaction with that side, but again other people do - they are there and crying out for updates.

I know weíve never been close, but I think Iíve proven myself more than capable and dedicated (minor hiccups excluded). On the other hand, if you want ďanyone but meĒ, at least make it someone - I can think of a list of capable people off the top of my head to run things. If you donít want to continue, thatís fine. No-one expects anyone to keep doing the same thing forever, but please donít pull everything else down with you (like I did, it was a mistake).

This.

I've always been very passionate about your mod and a lot of other people as well. If Rockstar North really had any concerns against this mod, they would already have been voiced.

It's no surprise that you want to throw in the towel, Kalcor, after all you've been investing your time for years on the end. Nobody blames you for being bored of it but at least give someone else the chance to continue it.

I wholeheartedly agree. I've said for years that SA:MP is a fantastic platform for introducing people to the basics of programming, and I've seen many younger people start, learn and progress in software development just because of SA:MP.

People here still care enough to carry on what you started. I personally don't care how you run your forum and websites, none of that bothers me in the slightest because you're well within your right to do so. What does bother me is the sentiment that "SA:MP is dying" which has been echoed for years and never really been realised.
