I someone wants a subject to keep this post going for a while I reckon we should discuss community events. The metaverse holds a series of events, like the ship designs and ARRs along with a few inconstant events, but they lack the effort to bring a community together. Right now we have a rather loose community. people finding a little group to chatter with and occationally moving into someone else group to have a chatter with them.
We need some simple yet community binding forum events that will unite all these little friends groups and keep people interested and active. I am currently running 2 events myself as an effort towards this goal which I assume is in common interest with everyone else on the metaverse. both have been highly sucessful and brought people together, I People are eager to share and talk, give advice and creating a clever text response or picture which people admire. Not to meantion the humor and funny we are having is extrodinary.
The Sucessful posts:

I'd like to perhaps start a post somewhere on this site that can be actively maintained to show a description of every thread support community activities so that everyone can have a constant up-to-date link with every event that is happening. My reasoning segests that this will motivate people to actually stay active and in the process get to know and become friends with everyone on the forums. This will ultimately bind us together making everyone feel more comfortable and at home here. Not to meantion newbies would also feel much more welcome and thus be more likely to stay because they don't feel out of place.
I know it's alot of reading here, but I think it would be a good idea. If you guys support this I'm willing to go through with it and organise the post that will keep and up-to-date record of events for people to participate in. I'd expect people to be eager and paricipate by posting an event of their own aswell.
