The site is dying, there's no mistaking it. We need to try to lure some players from other communities in and hope they'll stay/get their friends to come as well. I think its time to host a real cross community game
I suggest a setup creation contest. People submit a setup and say its for the contest. Whoever makes the most appropiate setup with the best storyline/most fun gameplay gets some kind of award/special title/colour. And then someone has to host it. I would offer to co-host the setup for anyone willing to be the main host (I'd offer to host it myself but I'm afraid I would get banshee screams after Magellan).
You obviously don't need to follow those guidelines, but as a general rule, I believe it should be kept simple, and should have a minimum of 15 slots at the very least.
If all goes well we may even look at hosting an actual M-FM or even an FM at some point. Man that would be amazing. Lol
