Earlier on the chat it was asked what the forum was all about and how we were related to a few other Monster hunter sites... I will provide you with that conversation (part of anyways) in hopes that it may hep some of you with a bit more understanding about this forum as well.
[16:03:18] Ares : and this forum is dedicated to the wiki
[16:03:28] Ares : And also
[16:05:01] Ares : wb win
[16:05:22] @ Win32error : Ares, you do know we're not affliated to the wiki?
[16:05:33] charleszxc : SEEE
[16:05:41] charleszxc : sorry had to do it
[16:06:04] Ares : so mh wiki forum is not affiliated with the mh wiki?
[16:06:14] @ Win32error : Nope.
[16:06:22] charleszxc : i already said that earlier
[16:06:37] @ Win32error : While it was deadcat, a wiki member, who created this forum, there's no official links.
[16:06:37] Ares : and that's why theres a link to the forum on the mhwiki?
[16:06:54] @ Win32error : Courtesy of us towards the wiki.
[16:07:03] Ares : I see
[16:07:06] Ares : Whatever
[16:07:10] @ Win32error : Look, it's not like we're 100% unrelated.
[16:07:29] @ Win32error : But there's no link in any real way, apart from a few members knowing some others.
[16:07:29] charleszxc : hes
[16:07:58] Ares : I see
[16:08:23] Ares : The title seems to be a bit of a misnomer then doesnt it
[16:08:50] @ Win32error : Not really.
[16:08:54] @ Win32error : It was made with the intention
[16:09:12] @ Win32error : Dcj does try to bring it closer together, i hear
[16:09:22] Ares : Yeah
[16:09:43] @ Win32error : But the wiki people don't care about us, and vice versa
[16:10:40] charleszxc : dcj is the creater of this right
[16:10:48] charleszxc : bc i heard he was
[16:10:50] Ares : no
[16:10:53] Ares : deadcat was
[16:11:20] charleszxc : someone said he was, or the owner or something
[16:11:31] charleszxc : i heard it the other day
[16:11:33] Ares : He was head admin for awhile
[16:11:44] Ares : but he passed the title to win
[16:12:25] charleszxc : oh is that true win?
[16:12:40] Ares : No i'm a dirty liar
[16:12:55] @ Win32error : Deadcat was the founder of the forum
[16:13:09] @ Win32error : He left soon after, leaving only one admin, rook.
[16:13:24] charleszxc : i didnt say that ares.
[16:13:35] Ares : I know
[16:13:45] @ Win32error : Rook was here for something like a year, as only admin. Deadcat remained founder, but he never showed up.
[16:14:20] dcj91x joined the chat on Thu Nov 15, 2012 4:14 pm
[16:14:21] @ Win32error : At some point, rook made dcj mod, a week later admin, and then he left about a week after that.
[16:14:30] Ares : hey dcj
[16:14:34] @ Win32error : Hello dcj
[16:15:54] @ dcj91x : Maybe I can help explain..
[16:16:05] charleszxc : please do
[16:16:09] charleszxc : more the merryer
[16:16:30] @ dcj91x : the Monster Hunter Wikia and MHWikiForum are seperate sites
[16:17:02] @ dcj91x : but we all try to promote each other and try to unite multiple Monster Hunter Comunities.
[16:17:42] @ dcj91x : Links to the MHWikiForums can actually be found on several sites such as the MHWikis, MonsterHunterNews, and several others as well.
[16:19:15] @ dcj91x : It is a joint effort to inform more people about the world of Monster Hunter... and While yes we all do have seperate (and equal) roles to play we allso provide a little bit different experiance.
[16:20:39] charleszxc : i like it here this will always be my go to mh wise (except for wep trees until u get some)
[16:20:58] @ dcj91x : MonsterHunterNews, primarily provides .. news, the Wikia primarily privides an indepth look into each game and we Primarily provide a community based forum to learn about and talk about each game and provide resources to learn about the games from each other...
[16:21:26] charleszxc : are herealso events and stuffa
[16:21:42] charleszxc : *also events are here
[16:21:43] @ dcj91x : For us this could include community member made video's, guides, chat's or just basic talk...
[16:22:39] @ dcj91x : Yes Charles as well as community based events that introduce new members and more experianced members to each other and the games.
Hope that helps a bit....
And by the way.. Welcome to all the new Forum members!
