Conflicting information[edit]

There is evidently some conflicting information as to how (or more appropriately, where) TRSI was formed. The opening paragraph states that the TRSI alliance/merger took place after meeting at KewL Party in Denmark (1990). Then further down it says that TRSI joined forces at the Red Sector and The Silents Summer Conference (1990).

For example, at http://www.trsi.org/WELCOME/history.asp it states:

"In Summer 1990 Those cool Dudes from Tristar like Flynn, Nutribrains (both), Beermacht, Delaware, Wizler, Double Trouble decided to drive to da KewL Party held by Silents in cold Denmark. [...] After 3 days without many sleep ,too many beers and da real tuff stuff we founded one of the best ever founded co-operation called Tristar & Red Sector Inc., later on these two groups merged into one powerful group which is still one of the best ever groups from europe."

Yet at Amiga Scenery (http://exotica.fix.no/info/scenery/online/t.html) it states:

"TRSI was born 29.06 1990, when Tristar and Red Sector Inc decided to join forces on the Red Sector and The Silents Summer Conference 1990."

So, which is it? —RaD Man (talk) 19:51, 3 Feb 2005 (UTC)

its the same party in summer 1990 held by the silents dk

Keep the article[edit]

RSI (especially with their "MegaDemo" was a huge milestone in the development of the Amiga demoscene.

Deleting this article would mean (at least for me) deleting what a large piece of what "Amiga capabilities" meant to a lot of people a decade ago.

TRSI Redirect[edit]

I am wondering if there is not a problem with having this redirect lead to Tristar and Red Sector Incorporated. Can't it also lead to The RightStuf International? In fact most of the people I know think TRSI first for the RightStuf and might get confused finding it lead to another site and not The Right Stuf International or at least a choice between the two.

never heard of it.....right what....

Cleanup from Aug 05[edit]

Finally completed it would seem. Qaanaaq 11:46, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

Cleanup needed[edit]

Some more cleanup is needed. Some very non-neutral words are used like "legendary", "ruled", and "rocked". Maybe some TRSI members are editing the page. Also, the lists of BBSes and members are a bit ungainly - they could at least go in collapsible tables. --Vossanova o< 15:05, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

More neutral words were chosen at the appropriate spaces, thanks for the remarks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.191.34.218 (talk) 15:18, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Way too long[edit]

This article looks more like a propaganda (and bragging IMHO) page than like an encyclopedic article. The history part is way to long and elaborate, especially with all the name dropping. I couldn't endure to read all of it even though I am very interested in the scene. And does it really need to mention almost each year separately? I'd suggest some early-years, rise to fame (or something) and recent activity paragraphs instead. A bit like it can be seen (and i'd consider good practice) on articles covering bands and the likes.

Agree. Another big problem is all the direct extern links within the article. This is Wikipedia, not the Internet at large and direct extern links like that are highly discouraged. The whole article needs to be waded through and all the direct extern links made into refs or removed completely. Reading just the lead, however, I can't see why we even have this article. Why are they notable? Why should we care? — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 13:41, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

10 orbyte cracktro, loaded from space[edit]

I think this article needs to be updated with some details about the 10 orbyte demo. This was quite a technical achievement (building and sending a cracktro to space on a femto satellite) and then executing it on a c64 at a demoparty loaded from space. As far as I know unique. For details see this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLrF_2aS_hI — Preceding unsigned comment added by 118.211.81.194 (talk)

Please note that for Wikipedia to cover something, it needs to be verifiable -- the information needs to be covered by a reliable source. So for anyone to add it to the article, it has first to be established that RetroDemoScene qualifies for WP:RS. This already has very bad sourcing, let's not make it worse. -- intgr [talk] 13:40, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
