Our TW fac is now doing very well. We have 48 members, around 2/3 of them are quite active, and I'm pretty sure that makes us the 3rd largest fac in the game.
More importantly, we have a good social group forming - we have have a regular chat room running again (via XFire if anyone wants to hop in), and in short, CC is back in business.
If anyone wants to try TW that hasn't - or did briefly but gave up at level 1, the game has become far, FAR more newbie-friendly than it used to be, so you may want to give it a shot.Lomaz
Lomaz, for those who don't know him, is the co-leader of our TW fac, and a very major part of why our fac got to where it is. He has now been promoted to CC admin as well. Congrats. These Forums
If you're wondering why not much has been added to the forums, the issue is that our forum software is currently in limbo. Version 2 has been on release candidates for almost a year, and most new mods are made for that since 1 will quickly die out. I'm hesitant to switch us to what's basically late beta software, but I'm also hesitant to code us stuff that will have to be modified or flat out redone in a few months. Once SMF 2 comes out though, expect more cool stuff on these forums, and yes, the xp system is coming back.
