    Greetings, all!

    I know various people have stated that background images have been a major obstacle to new conent and perhaps its biggest obstacle. What about hiring artists to make backgrounds or/and other art assets of similar style and quality to match the existing styles? Such seems like the best option for new content.

    Thankee!

    I'm sure that's not feasible financially. Plus, if we were hiring people, that would involve incorporating on some level and thus becoming a company peddling in someone else's IP. Major no-no.

    I think we should come up with a way to pay Gaear something for his years of service.

    I know many others have done much, but Gaear has always been the one constant that has cemented this entire endeavor and enabled the many things about Co8 that we, (me included) tend to take for granted.

    Thanks lol but the minute we start throwing money around for something other than site upkeep, we start down a very slippery slope. It's not necessary anyway but it's best to stay very far away from that concept.
