Few months back when Qwaider Planet started. I had doubts how it will be received. Or how good it would be. Even more how will it serve people.
The days passed, the hits piled up, even some polls showed that it's being favored by a good number of people. The way it was all designed was the end user in mind. At the same time, I tried to distance my self and my personal opinions regarding content and participant.
