Something coming up a lot on another CC forum is people have problems with lag and ping on W39. We can just cut to the chase:

  • W39 is an American world
  • Not everyone is an American

It's not fair to force the sweet sweet taste of bald eagle freedom down everyone's throat, so honestly, we should designate other official homeworlds, so that playing on a wikiworld is something everyone can enjoy.

Proposed worlds

  • W39 - Keep world 39 as our American homeworld; we have too much history with it
  • W5 - Use for continental Europe; It's a Norwegian-based server that seems fairly popular with our Dutch users
  • W100???? - For Australia; I don't know, I just know Astra uses this world a lot, so I assume it's good ping for her
  • 139 - Proposed for Europe below
  • 49 - Proposed for Australia below

Special thanks

Also, a special shout out to Christine, who articulated the idea formally first, but had it glanced over in the midst of drama. I only want clv

Strong Support - I think this is a great idea, this way we can have all the benefits of home worlds (namely being together, running into each other which I always enjoy) and of good ping. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 00:13, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

Strong support - Alternatively, and as a Dutch person, world 139 could be used rather than world 5 if people have more interest in that one. I'm getting a good ping on that world as well. Beach ball.png ThePsionic Ice cream.png 00:14, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

w5 and w139 are geographically close and have similar populations. Which one we choose isn't very important. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 00:16, December 19, 2014 (UTC)
Indeed, and I know Gaz like w139 Beach ball.png ThePsionic Ice cream.png 00:17, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

Strong Proposal, leaning towards Neutral - What about w39 for Americans, w49 for Australasians and w139 for Europeans? Easy to remember, low native populations, good pings. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 00:19, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

sure Beach ball.png ThePsionic Ice cream.png 00:23, December 19, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the A+ comment! I can definitely work with the suggestions you've given me. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 00:25, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

Support how about w32, that world it quiet popular with users. Sly Fawkes (talk) 00:20, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

You have my support. 5-x Talk 00:26, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

Support - Sounds good, also logical suggestion from Oil Star Talk ayy lmao ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 00:22, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

Support 39, 49, 139 - Makes sense to me. If these world suit enough people then i support this. Raglough (talk) 00:27, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

Neutral - I'm not dead opposed to it, but I have a nagging suspicion it may create more problems than it solves. On the other hand, if there's a chance it would improve the in-game experience for a significant number of players, I don't see any harm in giving it a try. Farming-icon.png Ms ZuZu Talk Quest icon fixed.png 07:24, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

Support - 139 sounds good. [1] Pink Floyd Talk page Vandalize my sig

Neutral - I have never had any noticeable problems with W39 and I am in Europe. Plus, like Jpaddon above, this might cause more problems down the world such as for Events and Avatars. --British Blaze (talk) 22:35, December 22, 2014 (UTC)

It's actually meant to solve avatar problems. With multiple official worlds, wardens can choose a world more suitable for them, while still choosing a world that's sanctioned by the clan. MolMan 22:38, December 22, 2014 (UTC)

Oppose - If we can't agree on where the avatar should be when we only have one homeworld (and the citadel) then how is there any hope of doing so when more homeworlds are added? Adding more clanworlds to accommodate for people in different countries is a nice idea in theory, but practically I think that this will just cause more problems than it solves. In my opinion we should just keep w39 as the homeworld and let wardens take out avatars on other worlds if they wish. If the avatar is on a different world than 39 then the warden should communicate this in chat. At the same time other members of the chat should respect that not every warden wants to play on 39, and allow the avatar to be out on other worlds (unless ion the rare occasion that all the avatars are not on w39 - and then 39 should be allowed priority). I think it was the failure of wardens and other clan members to actually discuss the problem they were having that was the issue rather than our current policies on this.

Soft support - I feel like the avatars would be the only issue (how many do we actually have?). If that won't be a problem, then support. User:Harmonising/Signature 09:37, December 23, 2014 (UTC)

Suggestion - Why don't we try it on for size, temporarily, and revisit the subject in 3 months? If, at that time, we determine that it has been well received by clannies and well managed by wardens then we can make it permanent. If not then we can scrap it and pat ourselves on the back for having given the idea a fair shot. --Farming-icon.png Ms ZuZu Talk Quest icon fixed.png 11:26, December 23, 2014 (UTC)

Closed - The clan worlds will officially be 39, 49, and 139 for the purposes of wiki policies. Anyone who notices if any issues arise with this arrangement are encouraged to bring them to the attention of clan administrators and/or the Yew Grove. --LiquidTalk 06:47, December 25, 2014 (UTC)
