Building shard can be a considerable amount of work. The more customization and quality required the more work it takes. Collaborating on a shard project if often what turns a dream into reality. I am curious find out what motivates people to work together and keeps them apart. Over the years I have seen a lot of talented people spread out on various shards. I always wondered what can be accomplished if all that talent and energy could be focused together. As for myself I have spent a fair share of time working teams on their shard projects, as well as creating a shard of my own. The main aspect that made me want to help or not want to was the world that was being created. Did I like the setting, story and thematic of the game being made. If not then finding the inspiration to help would be hard to come by. The main reason for creating a shard of my own was to have a place where I could truly create a setting I imagined and to tell the story I've been dying to share. I like to hear some thoughts on how can collaboration made more possible and what are the barriers that prevent it from happening.
