Hey all, sorry I've been pretty dead lately; basically I've just been doing a lot of thinking about how I should handle things.

Shit that I'm planning and working on with RX14 and someone else, related to Weeb:
  • Writing a new forum software in the Crystal programming language. (MyBB just isn't making the cut for us anymore) - this is entirely for Lewd.sx (my other forum) and we plan on having an open beta within the next couple of months.
  • A new theme for Lewd - I paid a really good graphic designer to put together some designs that we're converting from PSDs for the new forum software.
  • Some intense guerrilla advertising methods that I'll be trialing after 2lewd (the new forum software) gets released.

You may be asking; what do any of these things have to do with Weeb? Well, basically, 2lewd is a massive roadblock on anything related to Lewd - and Weeb is related to Lewd in that it has the possibility that it may end up merged into Lewd - the mentality behind not doing any MyBB related work because literally everything has to be rewritten anyway, so it's far more time efficient to wait until everything can be coded in Crystal.

It's become pretty apparent though that my lack of work has made both Lewd and Weeb fairly stale in regards to activity; moreso on Weeb. So I wanna do this poll earlier than later, to help decide what we should do with this community.

If the merge takes place:
  • all staff here will keep their positions on Lewd
  • all groups will be transferred to Lewd's group system
  • all people that were banned here will receive a second chance on Lewd
  • all people that are banned on Lewd and are not banned here will receive another chance on Lewd.
  • People will be without a light theme until 2lewd is finished.
  • People that don't wanna get their account merged into Lewd are welcome to have their account deleted once the merge is complete.

If the merge doesn't take place:
  • I'll try harder to make Weeb great again.
  • You won't get merged into Lewd.
  • People that are banned on either site will remain that way.

I personally think that a merge would benefit both Weeb and Lewd, providing both with a more active community and some nice newfriends; but I can understand how some might be against the idea of merging.

Merge it. Aiba ran an absolutely abysmal site and the only way it has a shot of being "great again" is if it gets filtered into something half-way decent.

Lack of light theme in lewd is no blocker for me as lewd's dark theme is actually acceptable.

Would have been nice if some more emphasis was put on Weeb (not as compared to Lewd, but in general), but it is nice to know that you've been busy.

Voted merge since I think it would be a better choice, weeb seems kind of inactive lately. At that point I think it would be better if we just merged.

there's a second "yes" option for people that wanna wait until the new software (with the light theme) is done

Can we make it just to merge when everything is done? sounds better, it would take even less effort.

except weeb is dead. 
and waiting probably isnt the best move imo since even less people will be motivated to move when its more dead

It'd actually require more effort to merge once everything is done, and Weeb doesn't really benefit from waiting at all.

I think the only thing that may be off putting to people that get merged into Lewd is the lack of the light theme.

I myself would like to wait, but I can see how it's effecting the community by waiting.

How soon could we possibly see a merge?

With the first option, we could potentially see a merge under 7 days from now. With the second, it'd be at least 2 to 3 months from now.

Oh okay then. Weeb is not DEAD actually, there are just a few members that still keep on coming but i doubt that new members will be doing this if things go this way.

ya, it's not dead; just very slow at the moment.

I'd love for Weeb to be more active again, but I'd also love for both communities to become one community.

When I'm considering merging, I'm not considering the post count in the slightest; the amount of posts that either forum has is meaningless to me, and I want to merge solely because I believe that it'd be great for people that are members here to meet people that are there.

And while it is "my site", imo it's everyones community, so I'm leaving it up to the majority to decide.
