Hello!

Any chance this could be stickied?

A GURPS Discord Community

We're an active and welcoming community with a variety of available channels. The full list is below for those really interested, but the short of it is -- we love GURPS, we love games, and we love gamers, so all those things are represented. Hope to see you there!

The OP began with a question, "Any chance this could be stickied?"

I was following up to see if the lack of response meant:

1) Nah, the answer is "no."

2) World is ending, reply hazy, the answer is "the world is in chaos and upheaval, we'll make a decision when we can."

3) This isn't the place to request it, message "xxxx", the answer is "this isn't the place to request it, send a direct message to 'xxxx' instead."


Though perhaps I should include a... 4) the answer is, "oh, did you ask a question?"

4. The answer is definitely 4. Also, you may want to PM someone on the staff, as they may not have even noticed this thread.

Yeah, it's probably 4, as in THEY are discussing "How much 'official' recognition so we want to give to a fan site?"
