First let me say that I really appreciate what are you guys doing. I know that it's not easy to juggle real life/job/school/girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband/mates/etc. and develop something like this. I know all that because I was a president of Linux User Group for 4 years... Where I am going with this is that as somebody already mentioned, it's not possible to please everyone. With such a diverse group of people there have to be compromises. Even if people don't agree on everything they still can cooperate on something and respect each other!
I'd like to make two points related to what's going on at the moment:
1. Looking at the original "WHAT'S GOING ON" topic, it seems to me that most of the people agree in principle with the expansion of the web site & cooperation with other communities. What I don't understand (unless I missed a topic/post somewhere) why suddenly <something>.nas-central.org or nas-central.org/<something> isn't an option? ltk-united, doesn't seem to be very popular option and most of the people who contributed to this topic seem to prefer nas-central.org (me including).
I am not sure why are some people afraid of losing the identity of the community. Nobody is going to lose his own identity and his/her contribution to the community will be visible & cherished & appreciated in the form of wiki pages and posts in forums! The identity of a community is made of all the members of the community. When new members join, the identity changes slightly. When two communities merge, each will lose part of it's identity and will gain part of the other. So, by staying a part of nas-central.org, something will be lost, but more can be (hopefully) gained.
2. On the other hand who the f*k cares what the domain name is?
A community is only as good as people participating and wiki/forum is only as good as the content. I think that each project goes through 3 major phases:
expansion, consolidation and stagnation. It seems that last 6 months could be considered as expansion. However the content of the wiki is getting a bit dated and confusing for newcomers. So may be this would be a good time for consolidation. Instead of arguing about a domain name, we need to focus on the wiki pages and documentation and how-tos and see how we can improve them to help ourselves and to help new people...
To show that I am not only whining, I just want to say that I am happy to help!
Sorry that my rant is a bit long...
