The Town FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions


Why "The Town"?

We liked the idea of a sense of place for the community, so we came up with the idea of a town with different quarters where people with similar interests could get together.  The physical metaphor seemed more interesting than calling it just another cyber space and fit in with the idea of 'building' a community.

What's with all this Citizen and Townsperson stuff--can't you just call them users like everyone else?

If you prefer to call them members and users, that's fine by us.  We just liked the idea of extending the metaphor to the participants as well.

So who runs this Town?

When populated with active hosts, the Town Council handles day-to-day management and the Pantheon formulates policy and strategy.
