Impreuna cu ajutorul comunitati Rogather.ro incercam sa resuscitam canalul de #cs.gather.ro (de 1.6) cu aceasta ocazie vreau sa le multumesc baietilor din aceasta cumunitatea si stafului meu actual!
P.S Sper sa realizam lucruri frumoase impreuna!
As you have noticed, the CS1.6 activity on Gather-Network has seriously decreased over the last few months... and today seems to have come to a stop.
I am shared between a sad feeling of seeing the community leaving for new adventures, and the satisfaction of the job accomplished.
It is clear that IRC and Counter-Strike 1.6 have made their time, and that the future of online FPS is Global-Offensive. We tried to follow this move with the CS:GO support, but the built-in matchmaker and the multiplication of other 'gather-like' websites compromised our efforts.
It is for sure still possible to develop a brand new project and evolve into a sophisticated CS:GO gather community. We have the user base and the existing structure for that.
But I will be very honest with you, I won't be able to do that myself. Not only because of my technical limitations to meet today's coding standards, it's also personal. Two days ago, I celebrated my 32nd birthday. I am not playing online for many years, and I feel like I don't have the required knowledge of actual games to create something great for this generation of players.
So is this the end ? I could be, but it does not have to. I am calling any talented and extra-motivated coder to take over my position and boost the Gather-Network adventure to a brand new level.
If you have a lot of free time, very good coding skills, and plenty of ideas for GN, just throw me an email to email@example.com with your project. Everyone is welcome: members, visitors, even competitors !
Practically, the website and the bots will stay online for the moment, but I won't be able to keep those forever for financial reason. Later on, I may try to find a free hosting to at least keep the website online.
Finally, I want to sincerely thank you ALL for believing in us during all those years. You enthusiasm and dedication made this community such a nice place to be.
