    Is that yet another empty promise? We were promised Hanad, but we did not receive what we were promised. I have yet to lose hope. They say without the dark we wouldn't see the stars and Hanad, Hanad, she shines bright like the moon. The chronicles of an almond drinker episode 2? Conspiracy theories part 2?

Short answer, we can't run servers because the community doesn't have a server box.

I've been brainstorming for the past two weeks, incorporating suggestions made by a number of members along the way. There is a plan ready to go to revive the community. The vision of what GirlGam3rs was supposed to be with a few twists. It's still achievable. However, things get complicated when we're talking ownership. Quite a few people expressed interest in taking over but after having discussed terms with a couple of them, neither seemed like the right fit.

They say power magnifies personality. That holds true, even in such a small community. People changing soon after they get authority has been a reoccurring theme.

The next owner has to have certain qualities or there is just no point. Is the person genuinely interested in running a community and helping it grow? Or are they just looking to run forum ads? (bang bang). Leadership qualities. Would they take responsibility for their choices and hold themselves accountable? Would they take initiative when the community lacks direction? Privacy concerns. Can they be trusted? Are they easy to work with?

What I'm trying to say is we can't repeat the same mistakes and expect different results. We've all seen the impact an incompetent owner can have on a community.


The good news is I'm in talks with someone who seems genuine. We see eye to eye on almost all the details. While he implied he wouldn't take a hands on approach, he recognizes the importance of upholding community rules. He's flexible, cooperative, I like what I see. I'll keep you up to date. I'm pretty confident we can roll out the carpet sooner rather than later barring an unexpected turn of events.

As for your idea, running a different server per season, :poop:
As long as it's not @MachOMan and his clown run servers where people shit on rules and don't receive a back hand for it. Actually surprised he found his balls and permed me. Kind of makes him look silly when he gives me admin/revokes it within 24 hours, bans me, and then perm bans me for shit talking to him. When admin can be given to any retard, most tend to favour themselves and aren't actually there to help the server. @blake_won please tell me you have more sense than this.

Funny enough, aside from kicking someone for alt-strafing/g strafing, whatever the fuck straving it's called, I did act on my admin powers with full service to the server, not just myself. Maybe I should be the owner of GG?

Unexpected turn of events it is. Unfortunately, a couple of days ago said person informed me he has to pull out of the agreement due to unforeseen circumstances. Understandbale, but a shame considering I've been waiting to hear back from him for the previous ten days or so, thus no progress has been made since.
