PostSubject: Latest news!   Wed May 28, 2008 9:18 am

Hello boys and girls!!!
I'm here to clear some things and finally, to ask some other things.

First of all, I'd like to say, as most of you already know, we will be moving to Vbull really soon. I know it's taking long and some of you are really excited with the total change. Let me explain what's going on right now. I've bought both Vbull license and Host service. Vbull software is in my notebook already, waiting to be installed on the server. But, nothing is perfect and the host site requires some documents I didn't predict they would. I sent them these documents sunday, 25/05, and am waiting for an answer since then. Yesterday they contacted me to confirm some data and I hope today they will finally give me my user/pass to access the FTP server. If not, I'll have to call them later on and prolly insult some mathafackas there. =P

After all this process is done, I'll start setting up the forum. I've been following some tutorials and friends help, so I don't think it will be much of a problem. This shall take 1 day or 2, max.
Once I finish setting up the forum, I will open it for MOD's first, so they can help me checking for bugs and stuff like that. This shall take 1 more day I guess. After all this, we will finally be opened for members. You all will have to register once again and start from 0.



Now here is where I will talk to you about your actions, member.

After the forum being setup, you'll have to re-register at the new domain. After registering, I ask you to open both forums, this and the new one, and copy the threads that you want, and with this I mean only YOUR threads. I will warn the MODs to delete threads that were moved by the wrong member.

So lets say you have 10 threads here in MH.
3 are showoff, 4 are tutorials and 3 are w/e subjects.
You decide to move 2 showoffs and 4 tutorials.
No one will be allowed to move them if you don't. Not even MODs or even me.
Once you move them, you can forget about this forum and only log in to the new one.
I ask you to really hurry to move your threads. I won't close this one right away, but it's better if we simply forget about this one as soon as possible.


OK, all this being said, I'm hoping you guys understood what is going on and what will happen.
Other than this, I ask you to give me whatever ideas you might have.

What kind of functions would you like to see at MappersGuild?
What type of layout?
What sections?
W/e!

I give you all the authorization to simply create a new thread @ feedback section or even send me a PM to give us your ideas. There's no need to tell spams will be deleted.
I'm authorizing you to create as many threads as you want, as long as they are not spam.
Me and the MODs will read all of them and discuss if they are useful or not.





To finish this post, if you have read it this far, thank you all your help.
Each one of you is unique and I try to know as much as possible about you.
Many times I've seen MODs and Admins in other forums that simply do not develop a relationship with they'r members. I find that wrong. Although my name is orange, I'm a member as well. =P
Thank you one more time.
Hope to see you all at www.mappersguild.net as soon as possible.

C ya

If it's possible, I could be mini-mod to only look at the showoff section? (a)
And then create rules etc. for it. Also I would want people to ask before they rip e.g. tutorials from other sites, like PM them and ask if they are allowed to rip them. Would be better than it was now with some ripped tutorials I've seen.

Creds to me for name. Very Happy

I can also now drop a suggestion. A Mapping-deepdiscussion board for mappers which has been approved by the mods/admin as a qualified mapper. Where deep thoughts and great ideas could be discussed by the enlightened. Very Happy
(Yes I wanna be in a cult. Very Happy)

Introduction
Polls
Applications
Discussion board Smile
Mapping
Showoff
Contests
Tutorials
Mapping Discussions
Lua/xml
Pre-made scripts
Tutorials
Downloads
Utility Downloads
Distro Downloads
Map Downloads
Server Boards
the existing ones Smile
RPG
Stories
Quests
Unique RPG ideas
Chit Chat
Real life
No life
Forum games
_________________________________
That's kinda where I was thinking of. Chit chat or forum games could/should be without postcount.


And I seriously can't wait till we get vB Smile

Greetings, Heer Karel

@Mackan
Please, make no such requests. Mod positions will be given by the staff once we need it.
Since the forum will get much bigger once we move, I think we will need some more staff members. MODs will still be MODs, there we shall decide who gets to be Managers.

And about your idea of a discussion board for discussion with the enlightened, good idea.


@Heer

Nice stuff there.
Some boards will be changed and I don't think all of those will be used, but some of them will.
Chit chat will be for sure.
We will also have a 'Donators' area that I've been thinking about. Maybe some online games or w/e...
Btw, since Mackan came up with the Domain name, he'll have Donator status for some time that will be discussed by the staff.


Tnkz all for ideas, more plz!!! Razz

I think some things have to be changed in the list you got there heer..

-Polls. Can't they be at the section they belong? I'll explain:
Poll: What do you think about the server so far? In feedback.
Poll: Remere or Simone's? In Chit-Chat?
Something like that, but not a whole board for it..

-Chit Chat: Real Life, No Life( This gives ppl emo thoughts, don't call it like this Razz ), forum games.
Looks quiet good, but the forum games board will be the ultimate spamming board? Count to 1000:) Survivor says 1 heer says 2 survivor says 3 bruce says 4 survivor says 5, got 100 posts! omg leet hax0r.

-Lua/xml section?
mappersguild.net Smile I think they can check openLua for those things..

-NPC Things..
What do you mean with that? Razz maybe if you have a good explanation i can agree with it..

if you don't want to read, you can check this list and see what i changed Smile

Well. Milosovitch, according to me - a Map ain't perfect without it's actions.
A regular map would become deadbooring after a small amount of time without any actions/movements/lua-what-so-ever.
So I think and suggest Bruce to add a LUA/XML section, since me myself like to script and for newbies which is in a deep need of help with this kinds of subject.
And Since we're not a brag-comunity we'd like to help everyone to succeed in their mapping, including Map-Lua.

Yours Demon.

Well, thats a good point.
Indeed I agree with that, and yes, mapping has to have scripting.
And well, for those matters, I'd agree to make a simple, small and limited area for Lua.

But then again, we fall back to the OpenLua matter.
I've affiliated with them, so we wouldn't have to make a scripting section, cause the resources there are unlimited. And that works the other way too. If a member from OpenLua wants a map, he shall come to MH instead of asking Kakan for a mapping section.

Now, I know how it is boring to have to navigate between 2 forums looking for different stuff, and that's why I agreed with Demon.


Let's see what will come. We might have a Scripting Board maybe. Though I don't think it would be something really supported.


C ya

Couldn't you just make a little scripting section, but then put a sticky link of OpenLua inside the scripting section? Then everybody's happy! Wink
