Forum Upkeep


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

The forum reserves only have about a month left in it before we will absolutely have to switch forum service providers. We have two options going forward:

 

1) Switch to an alternative, less robust service.

2) Continue to rely on community contributions to keep this work going.

 

Based on how the account fares in the next month, a decision will be made near the end of January.

 

If you would like to afford future game designers the opportunity to work on Aeon of Storms on this service, please donate.

 

An alternative solution would be to get assistance in transferring forum content to another service. If you know any web developers interested in helping with a content transfer, please let me know.

 

Thanks, and have a Happy New Year!

1000$ - If you ever come to Connecticut or New York, I will bake you a f@$king cake.

 

 

For every 4$ donated, you can reserve a private channel for you and you friends on our mumble server for 1 month. Compared to renting it on your own, Mumble would charge you about 6$/mo.

So if I donate $100, then will I get +4 donor badge and a private mumble channel called "Apache Feeds"? Mumble is dead now with Voice chat but wouldn't mind advertising the fact that Apache is a feeder.

 

I wish people still used Mumble. Voice chat is tedious to use and makes me alt-tab IG. It makes forming IHs easier as you can see everyone who is on. I blame certain 'bastions of IH' for letting scrubs escape mumble leading to the IH scene being very scattered.

Don't understand why we'd move onto a Discord server. For one who is running it? Is that person active in the community? From what I gleen the persons in charge do not play this game, have 'resigned' yet are still lingering in the background giving 'advice' in an undiplomatic fashion. Perhaps an inability to let go fuels this mission.

 

I really, really hate to agree with you, but it seems you may have a point.

I'm not in favor of moving Discord personally. For one, AoS and Mumble have been synonymous for a very long time. Functionally speaking, I felt mumble is more inviting. Maybe because it's familiar. But I'd rather we maintain the status quo with this one. If the only problem with mumble is the user cap, it'll be raised.

 

What's next, you wanna move to reddit instead of the forums?

 

(btw Ekco I sent you some cash. Hopefully we'll be good for a while now)

I mean, if y'all want to continue paying for mumble or make your own discord, that's entirely up to you. I won't pressure. I'd just rather there be a easy transition when mumble inevitably runs out of funds.

 

For what it's worth, I also prefer mumble for reasons I can't quite explain... Sentimentality?
