Yeah, so I've been posting in Salt World somewhat sporadically, but I don't recall doing an introduction thread at any point.

Anyway, in case I have and you find it and laugh at me, I instead use this opportunity to ask:

What's the relevance of the name and what happened to the original GW? I notice its URL brings me straight to this forum. Will there ever be a front page again...?

Yeah so SpoonyBard eventually did a new Final Fallacy game.

SaltW is an inside joke that I did not participate in, I remember it being explained, I don't remember the explanation.

As for there being a front page eventually, Dada said he planned on fixing Saltw in general (first order of business is switching to better forum software) and I'm pretty sure a front page is planned.

I still think this place needs to be revamped towards intellectualism and game making as a part of that. Rename it somethin practical, inside jokes are lame.

How about www.Indiecent.net

As a reference to progressive thinking and intellectualism being largly shunned and misunderstood in most societies and a direct reference to independent media.

Or www.Haddocks.net which could both be our new mascot and injoke which is much easier to get and the actual character itself kind of personifies this place.

I dunno if that would be an illegal namesake though. Also we could ask hundley to write some haddock puns and stuff to describe the place in a manner to pull in the indie community aspect of it I think.

intelligence is nothing

several people jokingly suggested the name be changed to salt world over the years, based upon a joke webpage GZ made a long time ago. in I guess late 2010 drule made a thread asking us to come up with a new name for the site, as the consensus was that gaming double-u was a pretty terrible descriptor of the community. there were some pretty good suggestions but nothing really stuck out. eventually they decided to go with salt world, and that was considered a better alternative to astrojone, which was iirc what drule originally proposed

if there ever is a front page again (we've learned this is a touchy subject) I wanna write an article/forumpost sorta call-to-arms about the indie games industry with Edmund as the centerpiece. we need more ppl to be like angry 50s art critics

Ooh, I love to criticise things! My friends say I'm very good at it, and then they distance themselves from me. Can't think why.
