The front page of the guildofwriters.com site credits: "AdamJohnso, Deledrius, Kato, Paradox, Taghtahv, Tiran, Zrax".
That's new. That's *almost* what I want. But there's still no link to the forum from that page. And the link posted here doesn't go to that page!

With user-friendly tools, tutorials, and a great community willing to offer help, creating Ages is easy, and fun.
Whaa?? There's still no explanation as to what the Guild really is or its status, from either an IC or OOC perspective. It doesn't even mention MOUL! And from reading the front page, the first question any newbie is going to ask when they get to the forums (if they can find them) is "where can I download the tools/tutorials you're talking about?"
Please note that every time anyone tries to do anything in the URUverse, the wheels quickly fall off or are torn off. It makes me sad.
Holy Christ, do I have to put in a frickin' disclaimer in every post??
I am in full support of this site as the home of the official GoW, and I fully support the people who built and run it.
Am I the only one who wants to do this without hiding things, without pretending we're something we're not, and with full explanations and full disclosure? Really?
It may not seem like a big deal, but now is the time (when we can't actually do anything to create ages) to sweat the small stuff, so when we finally get the tools, and the floodgates are really opened, we don't stumble over ourselves to figure this all out.
