In the past you used to launch Garry’s mod and immediately you knew exactly which community did what you would go there no questions asked. Over time now this seems to not be the case, the old communities seem to have either fallen away or are starting to collapse.
A lot of people will say roleplay has taken over everyone interests and the “kids” have taken control but really why has everything in a garry’s mod community started to revolve around donations. Why is there never a server that just gives you everything, why must you buy all these extra things, can you really call it a donation when you only do it so you can actually play the game unrestricted. There must be some people out there that use there own hard earned cash to run a community.
I do feel that since garrysmod.com has gone through its changes i feel i am less informed as to whats going on in the community and to be honest i really never understand why it had to change. I do sometimes think facepunch being facepunch doesn’t help and it only ever seems to get used to argue or ask for help which you will never get.
Tl;dr - Commence discussion on why communities are lasting 25 seconds people are ddosing each other nobody knows whats what and why people are generally miss or un informed about anything gmod related.
