The last article in the mpc forums is from July 1st. This is more than dead.

Isn't it time to remove the direct links to mpc forums? mpc is like a dead limb in ha.

Building support for Commodore 64 and Atari ST is not exactly the kind of argument users are waiting for.
BTW, no need watch the source to see that MPC isn't progressing. VQF is still closed source and everyone can guess that the format is dead.


It's open-source, or "Code it and add it yourself if you're unhappy". For some people, wide decoding support is important. It certainly was for me. Libmpcdec works on almost every known platform. Mplayer and VLC added support for it. I know I will not depend anymore on some winamp plugins to listen to mpc files on linux.

About attacks on the musepack.net site
Initial goals were :
- to set up a unique place where all mpc related cod and binaries could be downloaded. (ok)
- to set up a sample database with problematic samples (dead)
- update xmms/gtk code. (ok)
And a few other things I forgot. It's quite similar to some todo Frank Klemm posted about musepack a long time ago on those forums (Donation thread).

While I don't necessarily agree with how the site is currently handled, I also find the current 'anti-mpc' crusade on HA pointless. The codec, if dead, will fade away naturally without all the fuss and drama around. Deleting the forums can't be backed up by any valid argument.

No one is talking about deleting forums or about deleting a forums articles. This is just about forum organisation. Codecs, which are alive, get their own forum. The more alive, the more subforums they may need. Forums which are dead (guru gave us a good definition), don't need subforums or do not need an own forum at all. Their articles get merged into more general ones. It's so simple. There's only the "psychological" problem of "burying" ones own child.
