Personally I would've liked more discussion before dropping this idea, but whatever.

Well next time you want to push an agenda, maybe you can consider becoming an admin again.

That'd be this issue, which we would resolve before ever getting to that other issue, follow?

I am just saying things can snowball, 's all.

Having come from there (or a specific subset of there), I can say I'd be generally against a merger...

It seems to me that a lot of people with experience from AH are saying it'd be a bad idea. I'm curious as to why though. Are they just bad people over there?

Not all, but the player-base is very mixed, and there's some problems with bias in the moderated section.
Spoiler:
(Three out of five moderators have not logged in for two years, the forum admins refuse to appoint any replacements, and the remaining two tend to support one another in OOC decisions in their favour when they participate in games.)
The Nation Games board is even more mixed, with some being well-done and others being terrible. For all the good players such a move might accrue, it might give two or three bad ones and a vast influx of children. And additionally, part of why I am here is because it is not there!

Maybe selective poaching of good players would work?

Poaching is a strong word. It makes it sound culpable and illicit. But i am for extending invitations while preserving our forum structure and leadership.

You're free to recommend this site to people you think would enjoy it, but I'd strongly object to anything like "user poaching" as a strategy/policy for Molotov.

(I see what you mean about being unable to fuck around. I meant it as a lighthearted throwaway comment. Ah well.)

To be honest though, I personally don't know anyone who'd join Molotov. I tried with Gong a while back, and that didn't go so well >_>
