  Name Decided! Among other things 3/9/2012
Posted by: Sento - 03-09-2012, 11:20 AM - Forum: News & Announcements - Replies (3)

Alright the tie has been broken by GK Rebels.  Snoop's vote went to staying "League of Revolution".  I am sort of surprised at it since like I told everyone here LoR has only real meaning to me, but hopefully one day it will have significant meaning to everyone.  The name is now locked and will never change!(unless I leave but im pretty sure if that happens no one is gonna stay in the community unless we are actually larger lol). 
--
The sad news of the week is the WoW guild unfortunately will no longer be joining us.  The plan of them joining was kind of shot down from their leadership who don't appear to ever want to have a website let alone they prefer skype over TS I guess.

The good news about this week aside from GK Rebels settling in is an old friend of mine Chemich who was originally one of the founders of LoR isn't exactly coming back to help me but he is looking to get a TF2 server for us and run his own little TF2 clan.  More information on that should come this weekend but that would bring our community up to 4 clans from our previous.....uhh...GK lol.
--
The next major thing on my agenda as for as LoR goes is to put our donation method into play.  I touched basis on this a while back and got it all set up just not active.
  I still have to meet with madoc to go over some last min things regarding GK's server box, but the donation system I THINK is going to work like this and I am open to suggestion(in my head this seems ok Tongue)

- GK Members who put money into the GK box will still count as donating to LoR(Cept its going to madoc not the LoR account)

- Anyone(including GK) Who donates to the LoR account will be recognized for that month(when the website is actually fully up).

- At the end of each month the donations in the LoR Account will be divided evenly among the various things that require a monthly fee(Servers, webhosting, etc).
  - This includes the TS3 Server that is being hosted by GK.

This means the more donations we receive as a community obviously the more upgrades we can get.
There are requirements to get a cut of the donations, however, I will not go into that as I am still trying to tackle that part.  So for example if a new clan joins are they entitled to an immediate cut of the monthly donation(Which I know at the start isnt gonna be very much I dont think lol). Also I believe it will be a choice for whoever is  currently paying for whatever wither or not they will receive donations.  Finally, should any of the money be set aside for a sort of savings for when either something major happens or we want to branch out somewhere.

Again I am open to suggestions and I know this whole donation thing is a big step and really isnt gonna get a A WHOLE lot of support(even tho I plan on contributing Tongue) it is still something that needs to be done and addressed.
--
Looking into the distant future obviously is the actually construction of a full blown .com web page for our community.

Again if you have any questions, suggestions, comments, etc feel free to post them here or send me a PM directly Smile

  Name vote Tied 3/5/2012
Posted by: Sento - 03-05-2012, 03:27 PM - Forum: News & Announcements - Replies (9)

Greetings everyone,
  It seems that the name for our community has reached a tie.  Golden Kingdom Missed the deadline but thanks to Wolflo always staying on top of everything GK's vote went to "League of Revolution".  Absurdities vote was almost instant for "Integrated Gamers".  What this means is now we have a problem lol.  One would think it would fall to me to break the tie, however that is not the ideal operation I am shooting for.  I have decided to postpone as long as I possibly can to get either GK Rebels into the community and/or a newly formed WoW guild.

Once the name is decided with the tie breaker we will proceed with openly recruiting new clans/guilds to join our community.

If time does not allow however when the time comes for me to pay for the domain this month I will then have to make the tiebreaker decision.  Stay tuned as things develop I will be contacting both reps for GK Rebels and WoW and see if I can get them on board a little faster.

During this time I will point out that GK or ABSD may change their clans vote at anytime during this period.

Again as always any comments, questions, etc feel free to post them here or let me know via PM Smile

  News Update 2/25/2012
Posted by: Sento - 02-25-2012, 09:24 AM - Forum: News & Announcements - Replies (2)

Hey everyone,
  Just a quick news update as I will be gone all day Sat I am going to meet my new nephew Smile

The latest news is there may be a WoW guild joining us as one of our Absurdity Members started playing again and got sick of every guild being boring so he made his own and wants a home lol.  Even convinced me to get back on lol(Will I ever find time for Warband?) So once I get the details that will go underway.

As far as bots go ever since I installed the anti spambot picture we have gotten 0 bots(unless a few are already registered from before lol).  The admin approval method is working out nicely both myself and madoc can see the members awaiting approval in a nice dialog when we login to the forum so no more email spamming Sento when 20 people join lol.

I am still open to suggestions for the forum layout etc as I believe madoc is also open to suggestions feel free to PM either of us.

When our name is fully decided we will be then thinking on an actual website as in not just a forum but a full blown site for our community.  I am also open to suggestions on how that should look.
  All I have in my head atm is a main page basically like we had on the enjinn forum were the latest news is posted, who we are, what groups are in the community, etc.  So if you have suggestions please let me know Smile

Everyone have a good weekend I will return tonight but when I get back I have to go right to bowling and bowling = drinking so lol.

  Preliminary Vote is over!
Posted by: Sento - 02-22-2012, 08:57 PM - Forum: News & Announcements - Replies (4)

That is right our top 3 picks are in as follows

League of Revolution - 7 Votes
Team Stackers United - 4 Votes
Integrated Gamers - 4 Votes

Now that these are in it is time for the clans represented to vote.

At the present time only Golden Kingdom and Absurdity are represented by the LoR community(although we have 2 more groups in the process of coming in)  So I will shortly be messaging the leaders of these 2 clans and ask for their vote.  How their clan votes is theirs to choose wither it be another poll in their section of the forum, vote by the leadership, or a dictator declares what their vote is.  The Preliminary vote shows the leaders what the public has voiced(even tho tbh not many people voted which I am a little disappointed lol) so it is now in their hands.

In the event GK and ABSD do not pick the same name(which Im thinking will be the case tbh lol) we will hold off until 1 of the 2 new groups to join and caste their vote to break the tie.  The name that wins will forever represent our community.  Our domain expires this coming march which means this is the prime time for us to change who we are. 

After this change we will begin advancing forward in trying to grow as a community.  I am also looking forward to getting an actual website up that we can use and actually looks half way decent, however, we will just proceed one step at a time.

I will post the winning name(or if their a tie) when I get responses from the 2 clans.  I am giving them 1 week to make a decision just as the preliminary vote was(primarily because this month is almost over and if their is a tie I gotta get a name before we end up with no site lol)

  Anti Bot/theme update 2/21/2012
Posted by: Sento - 02-21-2012, 12:12 PM - Forum: News & Announcements - Replies (7)

Alright,
  I know we had a few bots register and I thank you all for hitting that report button to make it easy for me to get rid of them.  I had been working on the forum in terms of anti bots but unfortunatly I was stopped with my father having a stroke and going to the hospital.  So now that he is out and this past weekend is over I can get back  to work with what little time I have.

SMF seems to be a lot easier that what we have used in the past.  I have removed all awaiting registration as well as anyone awaiting approval since we switched from email to admin activation. 

I have installed an anti bot package which I think should stop all bots from registering but we will see.

So for anyone who has registered and waiting for an email I will be letting the GK lords know as well as Absurdity leaders that anyone who was having an issue registering will have to re register on the site.  If no bots are successfully registering Madoc and I should be able to approve them quickly.

I have installed a number of themes suited to myself you are free to browse them(im not sure how but I think you can) There is not much in terms of GOOD themes for SMF I have seen but I am sure these are not the only styles we will have.  If you are not a dark theme person I am open to theme suggestions so shoot me a PM with what theme you want and I will see about getting it on the forum.

A note to all the leaders of each clan a forum style can be set for YOUR board(like the minecraft one is) so just let me or madoc know and we can set that up for you.

If you have any questions or comments post them below
