So, Community

Community, burst right into gameplay at the Frontiers lunch from nowhere with two main players at the helm - with a really sophisticated infrastructure and keen leadership. It’s been long enough since the region functionally shut down that I can probably post this without any real consequences so here goes,

I don’t think anyone seriously believes its creators were new players, so what are everyone’s crackpot conspiracy theories for the people behind community?

Best one I could come up with was Funk and Lamb. Of course I have no non-circumstantial proof for this.

Anyone else? I’m curious!

I'm probably going out on a huge limb here, and I'll never know for sure- but I have a hunch it was Funk and Lamb.

My first guesses at the time were Feux and AMOM, just because I'm always on the lookout for those rapscallions, but I wouldn't at all be surprised if they were Funk and Lamb. The first time I entered a GC with Marim Grunzy and Braza Wain and saw that both Discord accounts were made on the same day, any illusion of them not being some established GP duo was put to bed.

It would be cool if at this point Braza Wain would just admit it. I don't think anyone would particularly care that they were trying something new, obviously I can relate to starting up a new identity when frontiers dropped :P

AMOM would never have raided Algerheaven, he respects the meme too much.

I think a lot lines up to make Funk and Lamb my frontrunners - and if it was them I don’t think they were trying super hard to keep it a secret.

Obviously it was an established duo, and Funk/Lamb have attempted some region building projects in recent years (Lower Kingdom in 2022 as Hulldom mentioned). The theme doesn’t strike me as out of character and neither does the touting of the Frontierism ideology with the manifesto going with it.

I think what put those two ahead for me was the immediate closeness with LWU and Taijitu (through their Frontier Carcassonne). It being self explanatory why the former would be of interest to them, and Funk being involved in the latter.

But, I could be completely wrong. All circumstantial and arguably reaching.

AMOM can’t work - his WA has been consistently on main for far too long.

EDIT: I don’t think admitting it if I’m right has any real negative consequences - possibly just some further delegitimization of Frontierism as independent or made in good faith, but even then the ideology never got very far.

frankly as far as im concerned frontierism is just the fun word to use instead of janitorialism it never had much merit to me in the first place :p

I mean, I didn't put much stock in it either for other reasons, I'm just commenting that it's harder to sell as unique/independent/original/intended how it was presented if Community was actually created by two LWU members.

God I've never wanted to participate in a thread so badly but also knowing that I can't for fear of it being taken as a mod outing puppets.

I couldn't be bothered to check, but was Funkadelia's WA in Carcassonne as a part of their Senate at any point?

Funkadelia was a member of Carcassonne's Senate until 6-22-23. His nation CTEd shortly after, as I recall. Sorry to put a damper on some of this speculation!

Pergamon?

They were active, fiddling around with their region around the same time.

The word “praxis” stands out to me - I don’t think it’s a word that Feux or AMOM would use, it’s such a leftist word, you gotta be lost in the rabbit hole of revolutionary thought to start spitting out terms like those, even satirically.

As an aside, Marim Grunzy feels like a unnatural or phoney construction - as though it might be an anagram or a cipher or something.

Feux would play with translations - Jeux, the name I knew him as, was French for Games. Feux was lights.
