So Halloween's come and gone, and as I mentioned, discussion post on how Oatmeal's been dead. Here ya go.
Us admins have been having discussions amongst ourselves, and even that's been at a standstill. Initially we were discussing how we could tweak the server. Stuff like reducing downloads, enabling random crits. Couldn't come to an agreement on some aspects.
We discussed the possibility of making group event announcements along the lines of "Come play with us!". It was dismissed as being kind of spammy.
We debated on running a CS:GO server. That was quickly shot down, considering there isn't much demand for custom servers in that playerbase.
We also had that secret project I was hinting at. I gave it some thought. And then some more. Ultimately, it would end up only catering to a small niche of people, and as fun as it would've been to run with the idea, I decided to can it. It wasn't worth developing.
So things have been a standstill for a long while on that front, and so now I'd like to hear what the rest of us thinks.
Do you have any suggestions on what we should do as a community? Do we care about having new people playing on Oatmeal? Are we content with having our little corner of the internet stay as it is, regardless of TF2?

As I mentioned in the previous two threads, we have been working on things here, and finally, the main event has happened.
We've finally made the last leap to the new server, and upgraded the forum to boot! Take your time to get to know the new features, and let us know of any issues. We'll work on setting up a few of the finer details too.
The current theme is the default for IPB, and while it does the job, I'm sure most of us would prefer Thoreau back. That's in the works, and we should have that up soon as well.

Overall I feel this will be a change for the best, and I'm really looking forward to improving our community with this change. Go ahead and post any questions or concerns you guys might have here, and I'll do my best to answer them.
