GTX0 is absorbing another website sometime soon

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.

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