    Default Cooperative project

    Will there ever be another Cooperative Worldbuilding Project like the first one?

    I thinki I would be interested but I'm not sure my skills are good enough.

    It was not for lack of skill that the CWBP became inactive. One of the driving forces was the Wiki that went with it and unfortunately, when the Guild suffered a severe hack/spam attack, the wiki got hit and for the worse. There were a lot of work done, both map-wise and in the wiki, by some great talent and it is a shame that it got dropped the way it did. If we ever do this again I am sure that we would do it taking into account some of the lessons learned.

    One thing that I know for sure is that once again ALL COMERS would be welcome. As in the last one all sorts of styles were used, and given the vast talent (present and potential) here at the guild, I doubt that there will too much demand that one style rule over another.

    Having said all that, all I can say is that I hope there is a new CWBP down the road, but I can't say for sure that there will be.

    I wouldn't mind contributing to a new CWBP. I've abstained on the old/present one because, as you've said, so much info was lost. It makes it hard (for me anyway) to tell where to contribute, and the areas/things that do need to be mapped are mostly things that don't interest me overmuch.

    If we gather enough people, it might work.

    Would it be better to continue to map on the same world : http://www.viewing.ltd.uk/Temp/CG/Th...ld_Jan2013.jpg
    or start a new one from scratch ?

    I'm in favor of a fresh start. That way I would actually be interested in participating.

    I would love to participate in any way I could. Joining into the old one seems rather daunting to me, as I have no knowledge of anything that went into it. Either way, though, this sounds like a great thing to be a part of.
