Default Merging US & int. S&F Forums?

As I'm in charge of both the US S&F Forum and the International S&F Forum and both are run in English a forum merger would be a good idea.

Pros: increased activity, no more spam bots visible in the "who's online" list, no more account validation delays
Cons: you would have to create a new account in the International S&F Forum *

Link: http://forum-int.sfgame.net

What are your opinions? Please vote if the US Forum should be merged or not.

* your post total could be transferred

I have a question: will all the content from this forum be moved to the int forum? If it will then I'm good with a merge

FAQ posts, tactics, strategies (individual posts) can be copied to the other forum (I would simply create them there) but it won't be a technical merger. We did it in the past and had major issues with the vbulletin software the forums use (users were deleted, threads and posts were jumbled).

Apart from increased activity the most important reason of a merger would be having a bot-free forum (only about 20% of the 1500 active users are real ones).

I see, I really like this idea since I have noticed that it seems to be more active in the int-server but I'm playing on US servers so I don't really feel that I belong there :P

So after merging will this forum be shut down? I hope there's a way to keep all the archives of this forum alive, some of them are very memorable, for example the rise and fall of Army of Darkness on s3.

In case the forums will be merged the in-game forum link will be changed too. You will be redirected to the international forum.

The shared language (English) would increase activitiy.

My fellow Americans ...

My vote is NO!

Why?

America - That's Why!

To merge into an international guild is to renounce the United States as an independent forum.

I ask you, my American Citizens ...

Do you want to remove the US out of forum.sfgame.us?

I say NO ... Heck NO!

Now, if you're willing to merge forum.sfgame.de into the international forum and require English as the default international language, then we'll talk.

Until then ... NO

Any vote to merge is a vote against the US

If you agree, click NO!

I'm for merging simply because of activity.After 4 days only 14 people voted,so that's my point.
I do not agree with BMWGuinness about the sentence where forum.sfgame.de should go internationally and to use that argument.Their forums are very very active and most of all its a German game.

This forum, if not dead, is on life support. I only check it once a week or so. There are few posts, and what few there are are mostly complaining about TV problems. Actual discussions are rare. So I say "merge away".
