I think we should take these criticisms seriously:
This, the issue of collaborative is tend to degenrated into own writer utopia or dystopia fucking the other plans, write yourself, is your story, your ideas, what you think the butterflies wind will flow and so on
Is not collaborative. @Megafighter3 is the absolute writer and he approve or vetoe anything he want, and we just give suggestion and discuss ideas with him(i would say he have the balls to stuck up the plot points he wants, even if very ridiculous or out of the left field at times)
 
Thanks for bringing it to my attention. If anything, any suggestions or ideas we need to adhere to? I am certainly open to suggestions...
Oh, I posted a question on the Pop Culture Timelines Go-To Thread about what do they think about collaborative TLs and the opinions so far are mixed, to say the least.

Speaking of which, here's some more:
Collaborative timelines are like improv or a writers room. The best improv ones are good at “Yes, And?” and the writers know each other well enough to riff, the best writers room ones have someone in charge (as noted above by Nivek). But like just throwing the floor open rarely goes anywhere.

MONTAGE
Insert classic heist movie assembling the team scenes.
And i don't hold you against it, that is an example of you being the TL author and you using it to show where to draw the line, something @Blaster Master surely need to act at times.

Still some of your videogame choices are more questionable but is your TL, your call and i respected it
Perhaps I need some thicker skin

Relax, if anything, message boards are notorious for harsh criticism. After 16 years, there is very little that surprises me about complaints. Just take it with a grain of salt. The only person you need to please is yourself.

Then again, I people start calling me a coward then I feel like I need to prove them wrong.
 
Cool! How about this one. Two major cities, Chelyabinsk (2013) and Bangkok (2015) were destroyed by meteors. As such, what if this forces a major boost in the world's space programs?
Wait, does that count as ASB? I mean the REAL definition, not the word for anything that isn't "realistic" enough
