I thought it was clear to everyone that The Postmortem is a Blood community.

No.
Rationale?
As Daedolon stated, this is a Blood community, in case that was unclear to you.

It is not a Cthulhu, Undying, or Nosferatu community. But you're more then welcome to start one of those yourself if you like. You also seem to have some kind of attachment to Source and Thief modding. But again this is a Blood community and not a menu where you can pick and add any subject you like and see if it works. There are a lot of things more popular then Blood. They could all increase membership here, but they would dilute this site from its purpose as a Blood community.

This thread is not even about the Postmortem, its about building your own super site. You could do that yourself if you want greater variety, or maybe you could go to a Source community and suggest that they add Blood and Thief to their forums. I'm sure they would be receptive to the idea of turning their community into something else.

Naturally. The point I sought clarification on was how exclusively Blood-only it's meant to be, or whether you had plans for a "horror gaming in general" miscellany.

I understand hosting and bandwidth aren't free, and it's just a request for clarification, not a stealth attempt to sneak in some other gaming support under the radar.

Placing other titles in the big picture before the site is complete in all its majesty will look like there is a lack of focus. The amount of focus put on BLOOD itself needs to be so grand that other honourable mentions are literally just mentions. We don't really feel like we should spend any resources on bringing forgotten titles back on the spotlight no matter how nice that sentiment is. We need the spotlight first.

While most of us are confident that Posty will be completed and restored as the best site for Blood information, there grows a slight disadvantage as the delay becomes longer. A flood of new players experience Blood following the release on GOG, various promotions, etc. Among these players are ones who look to complete the game and unlock its secrets, casual gamers seeking walkthroughs, and curious people interested in Blood's dark lore. They scour the internet for Blood insight, but currently have no access to the upcoming knowledge base and are unaware of Posty's status outside of being a community.

Take your time with the efforts in building the site, but the sooner you get it done, the better.

Has Posty been mentioned on the GOG Blood forums?

You must lure them with promise of rack! Show them to the appropriate garbage page for evidence!

Excellent idea. I browsed the GOG forums just now and saw a few mentions of Posty, but there was no evidence of rack or knowledge base so it failed to attract many newcomers. BTW, a bloodite posted an image of his Caleb tattoo.
