Please don't take me wrong, I have nothing against MD. I like all SEGA consoles, but SMS is something different for me and that's why I registered. I've learned so many things here and keep finding new stuff. I just think you can find SEGA lovers everywhere, but SMS professionals only here! Have you considered why SMSPower or MasterSystem-France don't have a MD section?
I totally agree with you Nick. The Master System is something very special for all of us and I learned a lot about it thankfully to this site. For Master System France: I don´t speak french, so I have nothing to do with their site (sadly, because there are some cool guys over there). SMS Power is more for homebrew and technical stuff. Sega8Bit is more for gamers.
This forum has loads of active members, but they rarely post something. There is no much to discuss about the MS anymore, nearly everything has been discussed. The MD has a growing homebrew scene and an MD section could be helpful to make the boards a little more active again in the form of comments. An SMS vs. MD Thread would be awesome, where releases could be compared and members could discuss which versions are better. The Master System would be still involved
There are a few reasons I voted yes: 1. Recognising that we are fans of other systems is beneficial to the site and its members (in my opinion). Look at the 2014 secret santa, we didnt rely on the master system as the only system we bought for. 2. The other sites I am a member of work differently, examples being retrocollect (has a modern gaming sections), retrogamer magazine (has a non gaming nostalgia section, seperate from off topic). I am not a member of sega16 but they are a mega drive site with seperate boards for other sega systems and non sega gaming.
Its not in our hands, I recognise that but at least if we understand eachother's opinions that can't do any harm

Interesting topic but during all the years the forum has been around, there's never been any demand for a Mega Drive section. There's barely even been any threads related to the Mega Drive.
As much as I love the Mega Drive, I think it would be better off discussed on other dedicated web sites, where people have more interest and knowledge on the subject. I'm happy for threads to be created to discuss the Mega Drive or anything for that matter, but I don't see the need for a new section (there's probably too many sections as it is).
I'm kind of on the fence on this one.Sega 16 had a master system section and a Game Gear section, but I usually just come to this place for SMS talk.
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.
