Dear 64 Digits
I am Frederick Watson. Hear me out. I promise this will not take much of your time.
I am an administrator (and current Owner) of Game Maker Station (Game Maker Station is a network of other websites and also the proud owner of the new Game Maker School. Currently 4,172 members strong).
I would like to offer you a merge (I hardly ever offer these and especially do not offer them to communities larger than 2,000 members. this is rare.). What is this merge you're talking about Frederick? Well it's simple really. I am offering for you to merge your website/members to Game Maker Station.
Why on Earth would we do that? I think Game Maker Station has the extra pieces of the puzzle that you are seeking. The only thing keeping 64 Digits alive is the blogs. 64 Digits has a dead forums & not so active blogs. If you merge, you will have a very active forum to go on, active blogs, active school, active chat room, and much more.
What's in it for you? Your administrators will be given administrator ranks on Game Maker Station, and your moderators will be given moderator ranks as well. Our website games pages are still under construction, but it is not impossible to move all of the games from 64 Digits to Game Maker Station. Trust me, our staff has a way of doing things. Also, you won't have to pay for your domain anymore which will mean extra money in your pocket.
Not to worry, we may have slightly strict rules on the forums, but on our chat rooms and blogs, our rules are pretty much the same as yours.
I think this could be a great opportunity for both of us. We have so much in common.
If you turn this offer down, you will only be given 2 more weeks to change your mind. After that, it's final and my offer will no longer be valid.
Please think about what I have just told you. This may sound useless to you, but the whole point of this merge is to JOIN TOGETHER and BECOME ONE. As silly as it may be, this can actually make us stronger, better, and we will both reap the rewards.
I hear you are extremely busy and this will give you peace of mind having less on your TO DO LIST and more to be able to get done in your life.
This is why I am not interested in merging GMS over to 64 digits. It's simply because: 1). Your forums are dead 2). your blogs are nearly dead 3). even if we were to merge and bring more traffic, it would be too difficult to work out all of services and extra websites and communities who are connected to Game Maker Station.
If you are interested, PM or Email me and let me know. The third part of the merge takes 1 day and the other half will take 1 week.
PART 1 - Move all admins & mods to gms. This will require each one to sign up and give me their profile URL's
PART 2 - Put nothing but a link on your website (home page) that says "64 Digits has merged with Game Maker Station. CLICK HERE TO GO TO GMS" and
PART 3 - We will move all archives to GMS. This includes Games, Examples, etc. We'll even try to move posts.
Intead of making a fast decision, please discuss this with your staff and let me know what you decide.
I hope to hear from you soon.
