    Should Hiveworkshop should also support Dota 2 modding.

    someday, probably, yes. It's so much pointless to support it if no one is interested in it. It would be a death section of Hiveworkshop if so.

    It should, the excitement is seen in the amount of threads created over the past two days to discuss this topic.

    We already talked about this. If it's good, then why not?

    Because then it's up to the moderators to create a section for Dota 2 Modding.

    Well, we're looking for someone who is dedicated to that forum and will actively help/moderate DotA 2 content. Also, the more experience with the tools, the better. So it isn't so much about choosing one of our staff members, but rather finding someone (anyone) who meets those qualifications. :)

    CakeMaster, we don't need your recommendations :). Nestharus would never join the staff, I have offered him a JASS related position at least twice in the past.

    If DotA 2 modding is very good modders will probably transfer. Just the same banana with better graphics.

    The graphics/visual area seem to be rather lacking more so then wc3.

    Im not personally interested in Dota 2 wow modding but
    I see opportunities in making a section for it.
    It would bring more user to the community, and hopefully
    some to wc3 modding.

    BUT this whole page is about Blizzard's stuff, Blizz games,
    Blizz resources, Blizzard inspired creations. But dota2 is Valve,
    its just not compatible with anything here. There is something
    charming about being surrounded by warcraft enthusiasts.
    There are various people here but one thing is common, the
    luv for Warcraft. Bringing more genres with its community here can
    spoil this. Personally I have a friend who is a serious dota2 player,
    but he is always complaining about how warcraft&blizzard sucks....

    So please take this also in consideration before making the decision.

    I dont say yes or no to it, but Im just a bit affraid it would divide our community.

    I don't see a reason to restrict us from non-Blizzard games at all.
