For a very long time MWH has used much older software for our forums and website. With it, we have been through forum-implosions, hackers, drama, and the occasional member database wipe… *cough*… and now that era is over. This is our new vessel on the seas of the inter-webs with all the shiny goodness. The forums will still be there but they’re very trimmed down. Discord has replaced them as our primary form of communication.
One of the goals of the new site is to make our activities more visible. In the past the guild has operated behind closed doors. The appearance of stagnancy has hurt our recruitment effort and we seek to change that. The addition of a blog and event calendar will go a long way towards showing our dedication and camaraderie.
Another goal is to accommodate changes in the focus of our gaming community. The guild was created in and for MMOs. When someone stops playing a game like Shadowbane, Warhammer Online, or WoW they tend to disappear. Sometimes members would trickle back for the next game, but for the most part we lost contact with them. We are hoping that scheduled sessions of Sins of a Solar Empire, Dungeons and Dragons, and other games that have a small time footprint will help create an environment that is inclusive. Enjoy the new site! Hammers High!
