Merging a bit more with Druchii and Ulthuan

Postby Calisson » 28 Sep 2016, 04:13

Hi!
Following the successful transfer for both Asrai (see The "New" Asrai.org) and Ulthuan (see Server transfer), we have resumed the debate about a possible common website grouping present Ulthuan, Asrai and Druchii websites.
See the thread What do we want the future of Druchii.net to be?

Here is the part for which I would like to sense the feeling here in Asrai.

New forum, associated with a Facebook account, same name.

Name: elfwargames.net, acronym EWG.net
Note: other names have been proposed, I like them less.
elfbattles.net, elvenstrategy.com, wargameselves.com
elvesforum.com, elves-online.com, elvescompendium.com, elfkin.net, elvesonline.net, fantastyelves.net
elvennations.com, elvennation.com, elfrealm.net, elfnation.com, elfkin.net
ElfMiniatures.net, fantasyelves.com, elveskingdom.com, pointyears.net


Main forums:
1. Painting & Modelling.
- all combined (1 forum).
2. Aelves in AoS.
- subdivided in fluff and gaming (2 forums).
3. Elves in T9A.
- subdivided in background, Dread Elves gaming, Highborn Elves gaming and Sylvan Elves gaming (4 forums).
4. Elves in WFB (all editions)
- Asrai, Druchii, Ulthuan (3 forums + zillion sub-forums as today).
5. Elves KoW
- no subdivision (1 forum).
6. Elves in other games (BB, WM, 40k...)
- subdivided by game (3 forums + other games).
7. Website miscellaneous (everything not model, fluff or gaming).

Total 7 main forums, 15 main sub-forums.
We will see when more sub-forums become necessary.

Identity:
Some sub-forums are dedicated to some factions.
Additionally, if technically feasible, we should leave the user the option to select among 4 atmospheres (blue/green/purple/gray) which would influence how the screen looks.
We should also let the user select which forum are visible and which ones are not seen on his screen.

Milestones:
1. (today) Tell our intention to Asrai and Ulthuan. Ask them if they have objections. Take reply into account, except if it causes delays.
2. (month-Daeron) Build the new site.
3. (month-Daeron) Migrate D.net and A.org into that site.
4. (week or month-who?) Create FB account.
5. (month-them) When ready, U.net joins.

Please reply what are your thought about this plan?
Thank you.

I like the idea, as I've said before. The hobby is withered for us elves, and I think bringing us all together will help us all. I'm not sure about the details. But those might be up for discussion later.

If needed, I'd behappy to help transferring the Asrai skin to a new site.

Yes, great idea. Larger communities are going to fare better in the long run, regardless of what happens to hobby itself.

I like the idea and the proposed forums (both main and sub). Anything to make the site not seem like a ghost town.

Perhaps it would encourage more discussion to grow across all the systems and among all the race specifics. Seems like a good step in the right direction to give people who want it an outlet to evolve.

I do like the way the intended Forums will be divided, with a sub-forum for all the different Elves.
Its been too long since we burned a heretic, witch hunt anyone !??
