Sorry Truelight but I think it is unfair to expect people to post their bugs on another site when the majority (if not all) of the bits they have in their games come from TT-Forums.
Can't you use both? Taking such an attitude (i.e. the ones in the three locked posts) will not result in more efficient bug reporting, but it WILL result in LESS bugs being reported - which is going backwards.
Two cents. Take em. They're off the floor.
This forum is for OpenTTD problems, not for OpenTTD bugs, which is how it has been for ages. Also, for ages, people do report their bugs on the bug-tracker, not in this forum (most of them anyway), like we requested them since 2004. Lately only there is a growth of posts in here, and therefor we promote the bug-tracker again. The topics you talk about were closed after they were handled and taken care of, so there is nothing wrong with the attitude of the OpenTTD Developers team there.
So, again, for the record: we cannot use both to track bugs. Forums aren't meant to track bugs, bugs get lost and forgotten. Bug-tracker systems are there to track bugs. They give us an overview, allows us to assign them to people, and all developers look at them. So, as always, we ask people kindly to use http://bugs.openttd.org
to report their bugs and we will be here to help them with their problems.
