One of the main values of any project is the community that gathers around it. The Golden Clone community is very strong, friendly, and quite diverse: to achieve the goals, our economic simulator managed to unite housewives and successful entrepreneurs, students and retirees, top managers and engineers. Despite their age, status and social position, they are always ready to help each other in a difficult moment, to give advice and steer onto the right path. And what's the most important — many of them spend time together not only online: they organize offline meetings in different parts of the world and share their emotions and photos with all the community participants!

Besides the great number of gameplay processes, a social component of the project is streamlined as well. There are special themed chat rooms in the game, where you can communicate on free or specialized topics, trade, and get assistance with the game.
The chat migration to a more convenient and modern messenger is scheduled for the near future.
In addition to the chat, there is a handy forum where you can start different topics, get advice, discuss news, and keep in touch with the project Administration.
Over 15 years, the forum provides the project participants with a platform to agree on personal meetings, gather companies in different parts of the globe, and share their photos with all other project participants. Sometimes, virtual chatting on the forum and informal meetings can even develop into real weddings and close-knit families. It is this social component that has helped many participants to establish beneficial contacts and agree on fruitful cooperation in the future, or build a personal life.
Active participants of the forum life organize amusing contests all the time to make the community even stronger and friendlier. For example, almost every year, on hot summer days they hold a wonderful Miss Summer contest. And on cool winter evenings or on the New Year's Eve, you can participate in a snow sculpture contest or share photos your decorated Christmas tree with the community members.

This kind of informal communication brings the players close together and helps them to find common interests beyond our project. Someone - now it's hard to say who it was - once said great words, which can also be attributed to the Golden Clone online strategy:
It's not just a Game. It's a Service. It's not just a Game. It's a community. It's not just a Game! Anyone who says, "It's just a game," doesn't get it!
