I visited the forum a while back, and everything was slowing down a bit. And now it seems to be at the same rate as a dying snail (i.e. New Tree). So I have some advice. Lets break it into some questions.
#1 what do we have.
We have made great strides in the creation of this city. We have laid a solid foundation with a few buildings. It may not be the most amazing piece of the final cut, but may be the most important.
#2 Where do we want to go?
In an ideal world, it would be a place for everybody to explore, live in, and relax. In short, a condensed cavern. With sights, sounds (hopefully), and people (hopefully). And if the later doesn't work, it could be our primary hang out, as a group.
#3 What do we have, and what is needed.
Ok, I know we need builders to fill in some lots. But over all I'm in the black. I am to old to learn how do computer programming. But, I do know that there are ways to get around challenges. like sound, teamspeak is an option
#4 How can we expand our audience?
What I am sure you have tried to do, and what I can now help with, is awareness and anticipation. If builders and explorers both know that we are waiting for their support, and that we have the foundation for a great city. We could try to filter people to come to the site, get some public intrest up, and in time we will have every lot filled, even if it means we use an array of exotic plantsand rocks to make gardens as fillers, and sardine hot spots.
If we had a thread for each point, it may allow the project to pick up some speed.
