They've talked it over among themselves and agreed it's the best way forward.

We're still working out the details, but the changes to GTX0 look something like this:

new gtx0 (optional) features

  • An option to use their post parser (2005 phpbb, so nothing too fancy)

  • An option to have signatures appear on replies and have posts paginate.

    forum changes

  • A "Worldbuilding" forum that aggregates the bulk of their posts.

  • A "Creative" forum that aggregates their creative posts and also posts here that have been tagged that from previous forum mergers (creative outlet for example).

  • A lot of new interesting posts will get merged into the Science forum here. This and the creative forum will probably be the biggest improvements to GTX0.

  • Some new posts for Entertainment/Media.

    None of this is finalized yet.

    Misc

    The other forum has about 5 or so active members. They should add some new life into our existing forums, and you guys should be able to add some new life into their community as well. I'd like to take the transition slow, integrate the two communities better and work out kinks in programming/etc before sending out the mass email to get the rest of the community here (or at least add them to the pool of lurkers).

    That's pretty dope, actually.

    This would be possibly the best and most productive step forward for GtX0 since it was created.

    If we can work out the kinks with the process, we could theoretically do this many times and/or conquer the internet mwahaha

    I can't help wondering what website we're going to be absorbing.

    things are calm right now but did anything over in world get resolved? I would hate for these new users to stumble into a "Jews run everything stay woke" thread.

    Perhaps people like #85 and Jubei lost interest (for now).

    World at least has a disclaimer. Also yeah, a lot of people have lost interest in gtx0, which is probably the only time that has ever been a good thing.

    Do the post in world still show up on newest replies?

    I try to check in almost everyday but my schedule will be a nightmare again till mid April starting tomorrow.

    Only if you've agreed to the disclaimer. I do need to add an option to let people unsign that disclaimer.

    Next we can absorb reddit to get a few new members.

    Posted January 21st by Vandy

    We could absorb 8chan and become a Neo-Gamergate site

    Posted January 21st by Jacoby McColby

    Or we can build a time machine and absorb the original GT

    It isn't well known, but when I was first starting GTX0 out, I was approached by a stranger wearing mad max getup with a bionic hand that asked me to join him and become one with the GTX0. I thought to myself, "GTX0, that's a good name for my GT clone!".

    The more you know

    Sounds good man.

    World building, like Minecraft?

    If I did dope then please sell me drugs peoples.

    We are the GTX0, your sites will be assimilated. Resistance is futile!

    Update: Looks like this is happening a lot sooner than anticipated. Like tomorrow or the next day.

    They're cool with gtx0's theme and post formatting so really the only change to the code will be the "branch" system, which imo is essential to mergers to smooth the transition.

    Any updates on this?

    Posted January 24th by Vandy

    Their accounts have been imported and I've been working on figuring out how to parse their posts. I'll probably do some more today.

    Cool

    So the parser is basically done, there are however some glitches with it that I haven't been able to track down yet. Should be able to get to those tomorrow. After that, what's left:

  • Setting up the "branch" system

  • Configuring the forums

  • Doing a mock run with their current database to make sure everything checks out. I've already sort of done this, but only with one post.

    After that I'll set up a "merge date" and let you guys know when it's happening for real. Will probably be pretty quick after the mock run, maybe 24 hours just so there's enough time over there.

    Nevermind, looks like that was easier to fix than I thought. Going to just plow ahead on this I guess.
