As discussed in THIS TOPIC we have decided that the only logical solution to the critical situation of wowmod is to grow into a broad gaming community.

Over half a year I have been helping such a gaming community with several code-based issues, as well as getting involved in several strategic discussions. Now, I am having a very friendly relationship with an owner of community and we are considering the possibility of merging our communities to gain mutual benefit.

Briefly, their community is exactly what we are trying to achieve on an early stage, they are currently having several popular GMOD servers, working on Minecraft and few other servers simultaneously. Merging our efforts, we will be able to establish different game servers more frequently. Taking into account the size of merged community being much bigger, the provided servers will get more populated and overall healthier. Both us and them are not that large, but as they are not around a single product nor are bound to CS:S are being in overall better situation than us :)

So.. As merging communities actually means you (members) getting introduced to gamesketch.net members and getting along well. Ideally, we are looking forward to merging both members and effort. As an outcome both servers will become way more alive and having several head admins reduces the risk of dependency on someone's absence.

The most important question left for you to discussion, please comment rather than just vote. Sensible arguments will be valued a lot more than a single vote in a poll when final decision will be made.

What about our special community? We've got a very colorful [community] even for an internet forum.

Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired.

I understand the importance of collected garbage on this forum over several years, but in both cases if we are to become a community not only about wowmod, the reconstruction is required :( Nevertheless, I am focusing to make as little changes to the look and feel of the forum as possible.

You never know, who we'll find on the sketch communtiy, more colorful people to talk with (hopefully no pacman-like). Is a bit sad to the forum go, but more excited what would come of it in the future.

More bronies like Tas and we'll never gain rest (And Rescape does something unforgiven)

I think this is a fabtastic idea, the thought of fresh new nice people might actually make the now biased community so much better and help populate the server again, Could even give birth to maybe a gmod Warcraft mod. But in all seriousness anything that will help the mod grow while still keeping its beginning goals is a good thing.

edit: is there a way to move this site unto another one that way not to be rid of the forums? Like link it with out linking it? Im not sure how to type what I mean but just transfer the database over to a merged site?

Sup guys. Moderator from the other forum here.

Trust me, we're a very good community, that is, if you think a good community is a funny one which literally can turn a serious thread into (funny) bullshit in 30 minutes.
You'll enjoy it.

Hey guys, I am Demonrat. a moderator from Gamesketch, I have been around since the beginning of our servers. As I care about our servers I have come to look around and see what you guys are all about. What kind of community you have. And what advantages it will pose to each of our servers if the merger goes through. I hope that you will accept me all as I look around, and maybe get to know some of you.
I figure I may as well introduce myself aswell.
My name is Ted, I'm a guy, I live in Canada (the great white north OHHH CANADA) and I enjoy playing games (obviously) and watching anime. Hope to learn more about you guys too!
Thank you
Edit: oh yeah, im 17 aswell

Hello everybody! :)

I'm Kyshu, one of the admins of the Gamesketch Network (since about 1 1/2 years now?).
I'm 17, just about to turn 18 and to finish my 11th grade of the A-levels, skipping the 12th grade and transitioning either into a work experience or go to a praxis-centered school for 2 years of Electronics (mainly IT and similar stuff).
I joined Gamesketch in Oct. 2010 (man, 3 years ago!!), when I was looking for a good Minecraft server after getting bored with SinglePlayer, just before the Halloween update. The world was about to be restarted (TNT, yay) and everyone had a bit of fun before we started a new world. Eventually I became a Trusted member, and later a Mod for about a year, until at last I am a server admin now :) I still enjoy playing with the community and helping out if need be as much as I did way back at the start, and it's always great playing a game till late in the night (including nex and friends raging at each other and me rolling eyes, haha).

If there is a merge, I'm sure the communities will get along nicely. We should do a few community plays on CS and stuff to get to know each other first? Unfortunately I can't play right now, as my Pc is broken, and I don't really have the money nor time to repair it till my birthday. Oh well, haha.

Hey can I introduce myself also?

I'm Rescape, 19 year-old finnish guy and I graduate from Finnish version of high school next saturday. I love turning threads into senceless bullshit and I'm also second biggest spammer on this forum (after Wookie). I've played/been part of WoWmod for ~5 years now. I've also been on/off admin on server for few years now and been in lead of events team when Hani was absent.

Btw 80% of people who use this forum actively seem to be Finnish :D
