I use the in game globe, but I also still use Gilroy's.  I am surprised you don't have that as an option.  O;-)

I'd read a Blog or a good Website with easy categories to get news about recent changes. Atm i have to Check (too) many different sources. You could post those links on other platforms for advertising...

Can we please delete this post or at least change the options? Clearly Infinity is trolling the forums by voting "Buckhunter" as their number 1 news site considering its just a non-stop propaganda machine full of hate-filled messages.

Well the options were made by sampsonette, so I'm sure there is a reason for each one.

Like it or not, we ARE here to promote the entire Meridian brand. A few clamorings from 101 doesn't mean we have to exclude them or fight them. They're doing tons of work for us over there by promoting the game

Excellent point Gar...let them continue to advertise their server and promote a healthy population, then when they inevitably run all the players off their server with their toxic play, they will come flocking to server 103 where we built a healthy environment :)

lol infinity playing right into our hands :)

Seems to me that you only post propaganda here. Forgive me if I've read you wrong. I can only go by what you post and not by your meaning. That's all I have to say about your post.

I play 103 only. I don't know of any other site that has information about it. There's GitHub, that one I don't understand. And there's Gilroy's that doesn't really do any innovations like 103.

I understand the concept of "the meridian 59 community" but I think its a good thing to have different sites for different servers so they are less confusing to get what you need from them. I don't want to end up on Server 105's fan page looking for changes on 103.

I wouldn't call it propaganda. More like a very long-term rivalry between communities.

He's not wrong, either. 103 exists because Meridian has been in a boom-bust cycle for nearly two decades. The game simply does not have the strong foundation, ongoing content, and fixes / improvements it needs for people to keep playing. We all flock back at changes in ownership or big expansions, we all think "this time it'll be different" - but, in the end, there just isn't much to do. In the end, being stuck in a small world with people you don't like isn't actually that great. So, that's why 103 and the Open Source contributors are all here: to start building Meridian's potential.

Ideally, this work benefits a range of servers, both old and new. But 19 years of history has shown that 101 will just go bust again if it doesn't start accepting at least SOME new stuff to help fill in the cracks.
