Maybe we could persuade the wasteland 2 team to do a special demo where you save the village in some way, like the fallout demo.

*edit*

Stupid internet connection, I've posted this in another thread so..... Look a dancing bear!

Seriously though, exposure is the way, getting ourselves into a quality mod for FO3 might work but that might take planning and well....

I have Dynamite to, you know incase we want to start a library...
The sun beyond the mountain glows
The yellow river seaward flows
You can enjoy a grander sight
By climbing to a greater height

I have run out of places to climb. I will abandon this body and take to the air. We will leave twin vapor trails in the air, white lines etched into these rocks. I am the aerial. In my passing, I will send news to each and every star.

Hmm a well, we could put BC down there and put out a general request for help.

We'd get hundreds of new members, especially if he wore a wig.

*edit*

Corrected some typos, once upon a time it would have been because of alcohol, now it's because of children pulling at me.  I'm not going to explore the parity there.

Do you think Brian Fargo would add the village to Wasteland 2, if  I went down to his house and asked really nicely? And offered... you know...

Might not be too late to jump on the Wasteland 2 bandwagon! Better yet if Brian Fargo throws up a link to these forums like he's been doing for others. 18 hours is cutting it pretty close though... Maybe some srsbsns Wasteland concept talk?
It's a dead mans party! ♫ wa na na

Not sure really how to write this, and although I'm normally a bit of a perfectionist I will just have to do it from the top of my head.

First up, I've been a lurker here for a few years, ever since I came across a number of you in the Wastelands of California. Since then, I've enjoyed reading your conversations on occasion with a nice cup of te- I mean, a flagon of ale from the Bastard Bar and I continued to do so until these conversations dried up. Not completely, but enough so that they didn't flow enough to keep reading them.

Since then in the world of the online Fallout Community, I joined the Vault as well as did a little work on Mutant's Rising before real life caught up with me and I had to tell Ardent I couldn't carry on. More recently, I've been promoted to admin on the Vault and on the copy left behind after the split with Wikia and what is now Nukapedia. You may or may not have been aware of that, or what either of them are. If not, they are Fallout Encyclopaedias.

Don't worry, I am going somewhere with this. The Vault is very old, started in 2005, and unlike the village it is still going strong. I've recently had numerous private conversations with the other admins at the Vault, to list some that you might have heard of: Ausir, GhostAvatar, Tagaziel and Kastera.

The idea we were discussing is mine. I love this place, and like you I don't want it to die. Therefore, I proposed to these other admins that we bring you over to the Vault and give you its community extension. This would include:
*Complete free-reign over that site
*Redesigning to your specifications
*Renaming it to unwashed.falloutwiki.com
*Help from all our admins, including the technical wizardry of the philanthropic Porter21. (When I say wizardry, I cannot be more serious. This guy is a god. In fact I'm making a few joke pages in my user-space on the religion of 'Porterism'. Some of the creativism that you have been missing, yes?  ;) )
*Wiping the site effectively so that the boards are up to your discretion. Ausir intends to move the news onsite again, so if that has to stay for a time, it will be temporary
*We'll send traffic your way from the Vault
*Your admins will be given administration or bureaucrat powers so that you can ban people, as well as choose new admins.

I'm sure there was more than that, but I can't remember right now...

All we want in return is...!

Nothing, nothing at all. We just want to save the site. Please consider. We know you've had this site a long time, but it will be much easier to keep it alive if you travel to us.

I'll be on here every day for some time, awaiting your reply, whatever it is. I'm also open to negotiate as, like I said, we're not doing it for us. Well maybe a little for me because I want to get this site back to how it was  ;D


EDIT: Also, whilst I remember the Official Wasteland 2 Wiki, so approved by Brain Fargo, is also hosted by the Vault, just whilst it on topic! I won't post a link because I'm not trying to advertise.

It's a plot, I tell you!  A nefarious plot!

And did you notice that not ONCE did he mention wenches!

I propose we go over to the Vault and burn it to the ground!!

(after removing the ale first, of course)

Don't forget to steal potential wenches while you are there!  ;)
