Bringing the community together!
« on: April 01, 2021, 12:28:31 pm »
We are pleased to announce Cemetech has approached Omnimaga and is looking to acquire the site. These talks have progressed to the point where we require community involvement in the acquisition.
As such, we are now looking for comment from community members in support or against the merger. As you can see, @KermMartian is very interested in this acquisition and would be an excellent choice to guide the spirit of this community:

No, but we are considering an onlyfans. After all, LTT has shown that it's viable for tech to make the jump: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJwjqZZgcWk

Hello there.
Would that mean just an ownership change, or should we expect some significant changes regarding the actual omni site experience?

Likely we will be experiencing significant changes reminiscent of when TI purchased Omnimaga: https://www.omnimaga.org/news/ti-really-buys-omnimaga-more-details/

Sounds great.
BTW, Kerm just confirmed the new clickable peanuts feature!

I don't think I can do an OnlyFans; I'm just not ready for that kind of responsibility :|

I, for one, welcome our new overlords as long as there will be a blue skin. I don't really care for Cemetech's shade of red. Since it is an acquisition, that means money is changing hands right? I won't sell my support for less than a brand new 4-function calculator!
I'm still around... kind of.

Agree, but cemetech peeps can't handle the omni-bus.

Ugh. I really like Omnimaga as it is. But what type of benefits are even going to come from merging? And I agree with E37. That red is gross to me. I can't stand the harshness of it. But if Kerm can work something out then I'm willing to take a look. There is a lot of good information and things on both sites. And this also has the potential to get my programs to other people and calc enthusiasts outside of omnimaga.


Just a little more detail on what this looks like. I'm curious...

We wouldn't want to compete with LTT.

While I understand there could be huge benefits from merging the communities, I'd still love to keep the site as it is - at least the looks and feels. Would be really weird to stuff the cemetech theme down omnimaga's throat >.>
(Not opposing the merge itself - just huge changes in design) :3

I don't think OnlyFans, which is Cemetech, Omnimaga, TI-Planet, CodeWalrus, TI-Basic Developer and Ticalc.org's future homes, allows much webpage design changes.
