Thank you very much for joining us!
As you can see it is quite different from the old ones. We have a lot of new, powerful features (did you see clubs?! You can start your own little forum! On our forum! Check the snazzy discord integration!) and I am sure you'll run into some missing ones as well.
We'll improve it over time and install plugins and such based on requests. We feel this is a really good base for our new community strategy.
Do I hear strategy?
Offering a discord is just a start. We want these forums to be the best place for people to discuss SuperMechs in a friendly environment, with Discord replacing the Chatting that people did quite a bit too often on the old forums (poor Marija...). Moderation on these will be much, much harsher than the old forums, anyone who doesn't want to contribute positively will simply be shown the door, tone or otherwise. We think this'll mean it'll be a lot more fun here.
The language of these forums is english and... well, obviously some people enjoy fueding. They like to attack each other, turn each other into a joke, for some it's really fun, target or attacker. Additionally there's many languages other than English that we simply cannot adequately moderate.
As such we will begin linking other communities in this one soon. The only rules from our end is that they hold a zero tolerance policy on anything harming the game (cheats, hacks, attacks) and will be active enough to moderate out the few people who really don't belong anywhere (racists, sexists, people who threaten others...).
If you are interested in having a role in this, please PM me and we can discuss the options, there. We'd love to see a few Reddits, Discords and so on pop up.
We will open job applications for a Community Manager this weekend as well!
Thank you everyone for coming here. I know this will take a bit of getting used to, but together we'll make this into the best place to be on the web.
