I think to look back at the forum for a sense of nostalgia and I find it up and running again? How very odd...

Eskimo's the name for those that don't remember me, or those that wish not to...

So...how are we all?

I remember you, you (most likely) wont remember me, I hardly ever posted

And to answer your question, it never really stopped, it just got really slow

yeah without players it's hard to make meaningful updates but without meaningful updates there's no players

IT'S A VICIOUS DOWNWARD SPIRAL OF DOOM, AN ABYSS WHICH ENGULFS THE VERY SOUL OF ONE'S BEING

so basically

it's kinda like it's always been, only no ridiculous voting booth

But the voting booth made for such fun...what can beat a combination source of argument and killer of self-esteem? It's like mixing chocolate with cake.

I dunno about the voting booth....

But, the last time I checked, the server was working fine. It is just that not many people know how to operate the server. I have been meaning to write down a step-by-step FAQ on how to log on and create games on the server. That should help on breaking down this cycle of doom.

I was thinking a server purge might also help. But, I really don't want to just purge everything on there due to the amount of incomplete games that have amassed. Some people might come back and be pretty pissed off to see their games vanish.

But, it might help if people can actually see if there games are ending up on the server or not. I'll write up a document on how to create games on the cw1 server and post it up within the next few days. That might help a little. As for wiping the server clean, I am unsure... but, if you think it is a good idea or a bad idea. Let me know.

JSR...

There's the wiki, you know, and the main site which has the same depressing color scheme as the forum defaults. I'm under the impression most new folks don't even know about the forums.

Yeah, I agree...

This color scheme does make everyone feel a little "blue". I don't mind altering the scheme a little to fit the mood of the site. As long as we don't slip darker in the color wheel.

It is pretty easy to find the wiki on the front page, which I hope leads most directly to the forums. But, if you think everyone is just bouncing off the front page... then, maybe I can do something to make the forums more visible on the front page. :)
