RetroRomper's ACK Preservation Project Survey

Post by bryanb »

RetroRomper is no longer active on this board, but he still has big plans for his ACK preservation project. He has asked me to share a form with the ACK community that will allow you to share your ACK opinions, memories, and files (including incomplete games) with Retro and his team. They are considering a number of possible ACK-related endeavors, including a documentary and an online museum exhibit, so if you'd like to help out in any way filling out the form would be an excellent first step. They need your help to tell ACK's story and archive it for future generations. The form is currently accessible here.

You'll need a Google account to fill out the form since Google Forms requires this for forms which allow file uploads. If you don't have a Google account or have some other problem accessing or filling out the form, let me know and I'll try to come up with another solution or get you into contact directly with Retro. I'm not currently affiliated with the project beyond serving as a contact person on the board in RR's absence, but he is working with several talented people at his new nonprofit who will potentially be helping out depending on the response from the community and Retro not suddenly firing them all.

Please know that RetroRomper has a history of distributing private conversations into the public, doxxing associates as well as creating libel and hurtful accusations against posters here. This is not a JC-approved form or project.

Yeah, I kind of assumed most people on this base would already know who Retro is, but if you don't there are definitely a few threads you should peruse in total before you join a project with him:

http://joltcountry.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11816

My personal opinion is that you probably won't have issues with him if you just want to share ACK files and talk ACK which is why I posted the poll, but I'm not a mental health professional and you should definitely make your own informed decision. I do think he sincerely cares about video game preservation and wants to save ACK for what it's worth. I'm also not aware of any active ACK archival project other than what he's doing at the moment, but I promise that will change next year at the latest.

He was also my vote for MVP of this website for the year 2020, so please know that there are two sides to everything.
