Hey guys, as you're no doubt aware. We've been investing more and more into the joint project that is Warhaven, first and foremost noticeable through our now joint comms on teamspeak which have as a result been considerably more active with next to no negative side-effects. As anticipated, the formerly separate communities that make up Warhaven have integrated very well. This has not only resulted in more games, both inside and outside of WC3 being organized and played organically, but also considerably reduced running costs. We've formerly been rather clear in our stance that to us, Brigands Haven represents far too much history and legacy to ever consider changing platform. That said, with the website growing harder to use by every day as the outdated software it is ran on remains sorely outdated. With costs remaining high, and donations slowing down considerably, aswell as complications on the Warhaven side of things from running everything out of two forums.. Things are simply becoming unsustainable. To this end, we're entertaining the thought of a new joint forum in the same spirit as we have thus far worked out teamspeak, discord, and games in general. With a clear intent to keep full transparency through this process, realizing that a great deal of people through the years have to some extent, grown as attached to the website as we have. We intend to present the situation, and request the opinion of the people that use this website on the idea, and explain how it would be ran. It would be ran by two head-admins, myself and Ske. Rather than the current situation of a singular person of ours having "sort of" control of the website. With a expensive licence constantly threatening to run out, and being reliant on the individual who technically speaking still owns the website, who has since long ago distanced himself from gaming in general. This would still leave us with a pool of admins and general staff twice as big, and a far more easily and accessible administration in general. This would not only make it far easier to access and organize games in the future for the common forum-goer, but also streamline the process we're working on as to allow other communities to join the larger Warhaven one. It would reduce costs by a massive, as the hosting would be local and direct compared to the labyrinthine experience that is technical work on this one. Other than this, we'd both give activity a much-needed boost and have an opportunity to fine-tune the website in aesthetics and functionality both. All of this said, we fully understand the attachment that some people feel to the brand that is Brigands Haven, and the nostalgia. We are thusly going to be deciding wether we go ahead with this or not based on the opinions put forth by you, the common forum-peon. It is therefore absolutely crucial to us, and this website that you present your opinion however short or long it might be. And, in closing. We'd like to re-assure you that regardless of what is decided there will no matter still be a community doing what we always have been. Playing games, chatting shit, having a good time. All the same people and more, on teamspeak, on discord, on this website or another.
