Looking at our great new home, one can see that very most of the users interested in gaming didn't switch as yet. This might be a chance for a final agreement with polyethene. He might call 'his' site "AutoHotkey for gaming" (he really should love the idea) while 'ours' could be called "AutoHotkey for scripting" (or similar). This would offer the chance of 'peaceful coexistence', wouldn't it?

I wonder if Chris would be willing to negotiate such an accord

So do I. I admit that people using AutoHotkey for automating games is a bit... repulsive to me, and is not necessarily something that many of us participate in or agree with, nor was it AutoHotkey's original purpose. The fact remains, however, that a large portion (which I was wholly unaware of until yesterday) of the old site is dedicated to gaming, and I believe that the community is basically split between non-gamers and gamers.

So if polyethene would agree to make his site the "gaming" site and redirect "scripters" here, that would be just dandy. Perhaps he'd even be willing to hand over the forum archives database so it could be integrated here somehow.

I totally agree too. And then he could advertise AHK to his runescape community (and others?) full of... gamers. and let the non-gamers come here.
He gets his power over there, with the user group he seems to be comfortable with. Perhaps both forums would have a nice friendly link, linking to eachother.

I also like the idea.
@tidbit But why should he advertise AHK to the runescape community? Wouldn't it be better for him to advertise runescape + powerbot to the "AHK gaming community"? ;)

so that non-gamers know to go elsewhere, so they don't get lost in the sea of gamers when they want to ask a general non-gaming question. same for here (though, both forums could support everything but our strengths (community) would be different).

If it really comes to a seperate gaming and non-gaming forum, maybe we - as the non-gaming forum - should remove the gaming subforums?

With a grand total of 4 topics I see no good reason for the distinction

+1, if we get this deal with poly through. I have no interest whatsoever in any of the gaming-related topics, and they spam the "Unread topics" icons.

so how should we go about suggesting this to him?
all the admins (and maybe some mods he might recognize) send an email with the same title and body on the same day, in hopes he sees it?

I've just read this, any relevant news from Chris to share with the community?

Any chance he retained the ownership of the .com domain?

Moving this to 'About AHKScript' as that's what this topic is about. It's not Offtopic.

We finally have all the pieces together and need to raise funds for legal fees These funds will be used to support the costs of bringing "AutoHotkey Foundation" into existence as a legal entity.


Excess funds will remain in a bank to use for future expenses. Once the necesary costs have been covered the donation link will be removed
