Wow, so 2,000 months later my DNS issue with the main site is resolved. I'm back at the real xeogaming.net!

Just an FYI =O

More issues I guess

Board is randomly working and not for some at the moment (past few days). Hopefully this will be fixed soon ...

Thank you for all the patience.

Bump in the road, hopefully things are all fixed!

Well we've obviously ran into some issues recently. Our host kind of decided to upgrade their servers to PHP5 recently and the Acmlm board code is a little aged, it was built around earlier versions of PHP. So the code wasn't really working and whatnot. I didn't think it'd be possible to fix, but once again Xkeeper fixed some stuff. So all your thanks should go to him for helping us out here.

Hopefully everything is back in shape now. If you notice any bugs, report them to me or DarkSlaya and we'll see what we can do. Until then, its good to be back in business.

Sadly I'm still having DNS problems so I'll be using the other URL for the time being.

REAL Sub-Forums! =)

Sweet deal.

All thanks to Lord Alexander for the coding. Me and Darkslaya moved it around a bit but that's besides the point.

Also, when someone posts in the subforum the main forum will also show up as "NEW" on the index, so there's some good functionality there.

Only real little issue I guess is when this happens, the last post by user isn't updated on the main forum (it is for that main forum, but not the sub forum. If that makes sense?). No biggie though. Also, the New Poll button is back ... if you didn't notice!

If you notice any bugs just let me, DS, or LA know.

This could also open up a new door for possible forums and whatnot in the future. If you have any ideas or suggestions, just head over to Help / Suggestions and let us know.

The atmosphere of the board as of lately

[this was going to go in General, but I figured it'd be better off as a Global Announcement]

Originally posted by Katana
The atmosphere of this board as of late...

This is going to be pretty long people, so please, listen up and read everything carefully.

There are just a few things here that need to be pointed out. Not all of these things may be going on at this second, but they have come and gone repeatedly, so I just want to get this all put out there so that things may be solved once and for all.

This place is supposed to be a place where we all post and have fun! However, there have been many times when that was not the case. I've been noticing trends in being extremely disrespectful to one another off and on here, and it has to stop. Right now. We can't have fun without respect. I am not going to mention any names. If some of the situations brought up in this announcement pertain to you, do not take any offense. This announcement isn't meant to piss people off. Our intentions are to get these things out there and settled once and for all so this place can be as fun as it used to be again.

First and formost. You do not, I repeat, do not have to like every single member here. That's just life. You are going to dislike some, like some, and then there will be those that are in between. However, like it or not, you may have to interact with these people you do not like. That is where respect comes in. If you want to argue, take it somewhere else. No more arguing with other members in the threads. Period. No more nasty sarcastic remarks, no more baiting one another or aggitating...there are PMs and other online messengers for that, if you really like fighting so much. Otherwise, not here on the board.

Secondly...and this is something that I actually haven't seen in a while, but again, it is something that has happened, stopped, and then happened again. Yes, the touchy subject of this little thing called staff. Staff can move and edit threads/posts. That's about it. Regular members can not do that. Live with it. You do not have to be staff to be an active participant of this board. You do not have to be staff to give ideas, to have things changed...to do all that fun stuff, like make banners for the board...Staff is NOT any better than anyone else. Sure, there has been issues, but again, that is the purpose of this announcement. To get these issues worked out. To reiterate, staff can edit and move threads. That's pretty much it. Sure, there are differences among staff such as where you can edit threads, and then there's the ban feature...but who cares if you can't move threads? Tell me, please. Why is it really so important? As for the ban feature...Let's all work to get to a point where that thing can just sit there and collect dust, shall we? I know...I may sound like I shouldn't be talking on this topic...people are allowed to think "That's easy for you to say...you're on staff." But seriously? In all the three years that I've been on Xeo's boards, I was not always staff. However, I was always treated the same way I am now. People show me respect and when I have something to say, I am listened to. Staff or not. So yes, all of this IS easy for me to say, on staff and off staff.

Third...People coming and going from this place, and others that follow...when there is a problem and people decide to leave, if all possibilities of solving the issue have been worn out, then there's nothing we can do about your deciding to leave. However, those of you who follow them just to be spiteful? C'mon people! Knock it off! If you want to leave, then leave. As much as we don't want our members to leave...hey, shit happens. But don't go just to be spiteful. If you enjoy it here, then why do you have to leave just because someone else does?

Also...Goodbye threads...I really haven't seen many that had polite and legitimate intentions. People may grow out of this place and just want to leave. We'll be sad, and that is a legitimate reason for a thread. When you're taking a bit of a "vacation", that is a legitimate reason for a thread. When you are returning after the "vacation", welcome back! Post a thread to let us know how the hell you have been doing. However, for as long as I am a mod of general, if I ever see a "goodbye" thread with malicious intent, the thread will be closed and trashed immediately. I am personally growing tired of seeing that and that is something that bothers the hell outta me.

Next...when something DOES come up. If someone is being disrespectful, or there is something you do not like about this place, anything...if there is anything at all that you do not see fit...or hell, even if it is something positive...talk to us! If someone is being an ass, don't be one back. Let one of us know. For christsakes, it's a message board! There is no reason why someone HAS to retaliate when someone is acting disrespectful.

I know, I know, I've heard many times, "But I did talk, and nothing was fixed!" Well...one, dun matter how angry you are. Coming to us in a fit, saying you'll leave if **insert issue here** or being disrespectful...that is not going to get you what you want. You have to be calm and respectful. And for those who have gone to someone respectfully like that but the problem still wasn't resolved...we have lives outside this board as well...and, I know a personal quirk of mine is that I get scatterbrained and forget a lot of things...so...just remind us, "Hey! I'm here...yeah, you know, the one who had a problem but you forgot all about?" Of course you should still be respectful, but...help us help you.

Now...if you've read this far, you're almost done. :p After posting this announcement, I expect to see LOTS of PMs, guys. The atmosphere of this board kinda sucks lately, so obviously there are still some issues. Tell me about them! I'll fix them! I am always willing to listen to you guys. Please, PM me when there is something wrong...but I also like to see the good things too. Let me know that you're happy with something here as well as being unhappy with it. Not just me, but everyone here is willing to help and hear you out, be it good, bad, or a little bit of both. For all you old members, you guys should remember what MoD felt like...let's try to get that back please?

Thank you all for taking the time to read and please adhere to my suggestions.

Sup

I'm "back" I guess.

Like some people said who did end up talking to me on AIM and whatnot, I was just taking a break. Nothing more than that. Why? I don't know. I just did. It turned out to be longer than I expected, but we've switched ISP's and that hasn't been extremely fun (wireless connection doesn't work, so I'm on my POS family computer right now).

I just took a break because I wanted to I guess. It wasn't because of activity, or anyone here. I just did it. Although I hinted I'd return once a certain number was reached, the meaning to that number was insignificent to any real relevance of any kind, other than it was simply just the number that would mark my return. That was 70,000 posts on the board. Well, yeah we hit that, but the whole ISP switch was during my break and that kind of ruined my earlier return. Congratulations on that milestone too, everyone.

Nothings really happened to me during this time, other than having an incredible time with my Wii and Zelda Twilight Princess. Buy them both now!

So ... awesome.

Make a donation to the Bring Back Xeogred fundation.

Xeogred has disappeared from the board. He claims that if a certain number of post isn't reached, he isn't coming back.

Please give us as many posts as you can spare.

If Xeo doesn't come back, I fear for our future, and the future of the world.


If it can help you people, he also said he's gonna take anime girls hostage pretty soon.

A few updates that may or may not concern you (now with added stuff)

First of all, the darkmoonRO Forums were removed. Please refer to this thread for more information.

Second of all, since we've got a small taste of retarded accounts that seemed to be spambots, I'm gonna use Xk's system (that means that homepage won't be able to be filled on registration, even if it's gonna be only hidden. Fill it, and it's auto-ban)

--

Also, the private message system has been somewhat upgraded. You can now delete all your messages at once!

You can now mass delete PMs! Still a few bugs (and seems to not work in Opera, for me), but it's still working. Also, only messages sent to you will be deleted.


Depending on how much time I have I might edit this announcement.

Promotions . . . Complete

Done.

From here on minor changes may take place, but for the most part the supposed "big rehaul" is finished.

Just try to keep a steady flow of activity.

Congrats.

Complete Staff Rehaul

Taking a look at the index, the memberlist, the user color ... yes you will see that everyone has been demoted down to regular users. You're probably asking a lot of questions now, a lot of questions boggling your mind, wondering what's going on and what will happen. Heads are probably doing a 360 spin right now, and you want answers. You can ask many others about my thoughts on this, and many will probably tell you I've suggested, hinted, and basically wanted to do this for months literally. Recently though, I just felt it was ultimately time for it. It was bound to happen sometime, right?

In one case, Thexare Blademoon will remain on staff for one reason. The RO forums are technically all his, as he has ultimate and full control over them. He is the lead Administrator and owner of DarkmoonRO, in which I have absolutely no power over. They are technically not XG's forums, but dmRO's. Therefore he is a special case and will remain over those forums for the time being, and will probably be promoted back once this is done.

However, I will be making this decision with the promoting entirely on my own, not with him, and not with anyone else (ie. meeting, etc). But you can make suggestions, anyone can. I'm open for ideas if you have a good explanation or suggestion.

A few points that need to be made clear and stressed:

1. I'm not perfect, you may love my decisions, you may hate them. I can't stress enough that I don't want personal relationships to dwindle into this. Its nothing against you, or anything like that and I hope nobody here believes that. I'm doing this for the community, and with the promotions I will be doing them with the best judgement that I can come up with, and try to do what's best for the board, not whats best for me, you, and so forth. I've always been pretty nice and lenient when its come to giving out promotions and keeping people on staff. Its not the easiest thing for me to do, because I've always had that brick of guilt in me thinking that people will neglect my decisions or whatnot. So in the end, please understand this isn't the easiest thing for me to do, and I'm trying to do what's best for the board here.

2. Many people may or may not get their positions back, or may get different positions. However I do not see myself promoting back the same amount of people we had. The decrease in activity has been apparent, and for a very very long time, XG had been overstaffed. Unless people return, posting picks up more like it used to be, I doupt I'll be promoting back the same amount of people this time around. However I hope this wouldn't effect your activity, as I have always stressed ... posting on a board should not be determined by your position on it. It should be seen as an opportunity to be on staff, rather than a need. I'm pretty sure its been visable, that most of the active users have always been on staff, honestly I'd rather see the opposite. I'd rather see a lot more regular users posting than staff, which seems rare for some communities these days. This all brings me to the next point.

3. I'm looking more into activity this time. And I'd like people to be a little more insightful and contributing when it comes to being on staff. Back on MoD, it seemed we always had interesting topics to discuss among staff. But with XG, I look at the forum and see the "Inactivity / Vacations" thread as the largest thread (by a lot), and that's not always what I want to see. It would just be nice if we had people bringing up a lot more ideas than we have, and so forth. Because it makes things more interesting, maybe mainly on my part, but also for the board.

In the end, I'm sure there are a few out there who knew this was bound to happen eventually, or some who didn't. Either way, I'm hoping this doesn't effect your judgement of XG in anyway, and also towards myself.

So, the Application Threads are open for everyone.

Everyone, it is time to make the board a cleaner place! READ

This issue has plagued XG for a long enough time, long enough that I have decided to point it out (not like a lot of us haven't seen it already).

Q: What is this issue? What are you talking about?

I'm talking about XG's product here, post quality. The quality in posts has seem to become somewhat of a slump lately, but I've always seen it for nearly the last year or so. Sometimes not as often as some days, maybe just here or there, but enough for me to say "We have work to do".

I have not brought this up to the staff, nobody. Maybe this is a personal request from myself, maybe it isn't. Either way, posting better makes:
A) The Board look better and cleaner.
B) You look more respectable and intelligent.

I would love for everyone from here on out to put a far greater amount of effort into posting. This includes proper grammar, spelling, and even simple puncuation.

1. hey my name is xeo and thsii is my board its cool...lol
2. Hey, my name is Xeo and this is my board. Its cool.

What looks better? Let's hope you're looking at the second example there.

I mean if it seriously means busting out Microsoft Word, then so be it. Again, making better posts makes yourself look better.

Also, expect myself and possibly others to start getting a little harder on the one liners. I myself suffer from pushing these out at times, but like the title of this announcement says, its -everyone- here. This is going to be a long process, and everyone of us needs to help out.

2nd Issue ------
I have only seen this one recently, posts like (assume these are the entire post)
1. okay but thats not what I meant ...
2. I meant the first movie but okay...
3. No that's not him...
4. Okay, sorry I didn't mean that.
5. 3rd one was the best.
6. Okay, I'll try to remember that next time.

Basically, these are some examples of short posts, and a lot of the time they're users posting back ... what seems to be little answers to whomever they may speaking to. You do not need to post something so simple like that, it just really bugs me when people do this. If staff is possibly pointing out a flaw, I don't want to see people just post "Okay, I'll do that next time" unless its a large post and has more of a discussion than the user saying "Sorry, I'll do better next time". There really isn't a point to posts like that. Just take into consideration whatever someone may be pointing out, and keep it to yourself.

AND A BIG ONE

Do not, I repeat, unless you have some good justification say "Okay, this can be closed now" ... especially if you say -just that- ... its extremely annoying and pretty much worthless. This happens a lot in the Help forum. Yes, if someone answers a question, you can come in and thank them, but make sure your post is a little more than that, and just realize that a thread does not need to be closed because something was solved. In my belief, threads only need to be closed if they're pointless, and basically trash and or are just some kind of special thread like a tournament or whatever.

3rd Issue -----
Puncuation. Okay, this isn't school. You're not typing up a paper here, but just please try your best with corrected spelling, and puncuation. Again, like I've said a dozen times by now it makes you look better and the board cleaner. I'm not going to get angry if you don't do this all the time, but I do promote this idea. Also, if you type correctly on the board, I'm sure that would increase your typing speed for papers, and just overall being a fast typer on the keyboard while being able to use it correctly at the same time.

I also want to see you, instead of u. This is not AIM.

Speaking of AIM, I myself throw out an occasional "lol, lmao, rofl" or whatever like that maybe at the end of my posts, but don't go overboard, and only use it when it would maybe get a picture across, and actually have a meaning. I really don't want to see any of these used except for the "haha's" type.

In final, I'd really like to see more thought out and intelligent 'looking' posts from here on out. From everyone. It makes us all look better. So maybe I should say, treat XG like you would a school paper? If you do, it'll probably just help you out even more in the end.

~ Attention! Help out our Host, Help Us, Them, and You! ~

I recieved an email today basically for a request to help out our host. The business has been somewhat of a financial loss within the past year.

The Threat
- Ultimately, if this were to continue our host would eventually be put out of business, and thus we would have to search for another host again because we would not be getting hosting.

Our Help and Goal
- I've already setup the answer to the problem with our host today, and you will see it at the bottom of the board. Ads. I know it may come to an annoyance to some of you at first, but I truly don't think it should be a problem. And again, our services are basically on the line here.
- What can you do to help? Simply click a link anyday you can. That's all it'll take, at least 20 clicks a day from people would generate quite a bit.

We'd Win
- If we are successful with this and you guys do pitch in to help here, we would in the end, be getting hosted for free. My host has already discussed this with me. We generate a steady Ad Revenue for our host, and we wouldn't even have to pay for our hosting. He's already suggested that if we start off well here, our domain will get renewed.
- Altogether if this is a success, our host will be buying another computer to use as another server. This would give us cPanel, ultimate and easy control over our site.
- So in the end, everyone please give us a hand here. Just click a link at the bottom a day, or any day that you can. And we'd basically be getting our reliable fast hosting for free!

And you can get Free Hosting also!
- If you are interested and think you could run a successful site through our host, and setup Ads for it as we are doing, you could in the end, be getting free hosting! You'd have to pay off for a domain and 3 months at the start, but then if you ran a good Ad Revenue you wouldn't have to pay -anything-. If you are interested, check out our host!

So... Since I need to follow to current trend of making announcements.

First of all, make sure to read the last announcement, it's important.

Also, the mark forum read feature is FUCKED UP due to deleted posts. I will fix it eventually. (it will show a new post in a wrong forum, stuff like that)

Your threads and why they get trashed so quickly

Originally this was an announcement for General, but Xeo felt this should be a global statement. The annoucement prior to this one was attached to further drive that point home:

Though this is an ongoing problem, there has been a bombardment of inquiries to this issue as of recent.

If your thread was almost instantaneously closed and moved to Game Over shortly after opening it, there might be several reasons behind that, most of which are listed here:

  • Your thread had no major purpose other than to announce something petty like your beef with a particular member, your "official" decision to leave the message board, your request to know what people think about you, etcetera, etcetera and so forth.

  • Your thread was self-advertising for your message board and/or website.

  • Your thread was going to start unnecessary drama for our members, whether it was something you needed to get off your chest or not.

  • You are not God, the Anti-Christ, Satan, Bob, whatever, and starting a thread to only say that is spam.

  • Your thread was of a topic that has already been discussed, sometimes MANY times, and does not need another thread opened about the situation and with your original post not stating much more constructive news or opinion.

  • A thread stating that the board's activity has dropped, that mods or admins are corrupt, that you are an authority on how this place should be run, what you will, does nothing but start trouble, namely for you.

  • A thread that which contributes absolutely nothing to the board in any sense (i.e. making statements like "I rule" or "You all suck" or "I'm bored" or "I like posting") are simply spam. Nothing else to it.


Now, if you wish to contend the closing of your thread, be my guest, but if the criteria of your thread matches any of the above, it will not be re-opened and starting a new thread for it will warrant you a strike. Am I making myself clear?

The reason why many of these threads are prohibited is that they simply bring on negative aspects to the board, most of which I know you don't want coming, and halt positive, non-inflamatory activity.

Would you want to post on a board where everyone's on edge and stroking their egos over something someone carelessly said in a thread they started? I don't think so.

Joy delights in joy, my friends. Gather ye rosebuds while ye may.

Like many of us staffers have to say sometimes, it's a message board. When you come across Internet drama take solace in the fact that it's the brand that you can simply turn off and walk away from.

Originally posted by Xeo
Current Issues (Flaming) and Custom Titles

1. Current Issues
- Both staff and members have noticed a lot of negativity around here as of lately. There have been some threads that have sparked blatant flaming of members, and take threads off-topic. If this continues (well even if it doesn't) expect staff to start taking actions. You will be warned. If warned multiple times, like we've always done it, you could lead yourself to a temporary banning ... or full banning if you continue even after a temporary ban.

People, just lighten up. If you have a dispute with someone here, take it to emails, AIM, or whatever -- just away from the board. By flaming others you don't just upset that person (some do and some don't take things seriously over the internet), but you make yourself look bad.

And it doesn't matter who you are. Staff, an Admin, a member who's been around for years, there's no leniance for who you are. Be respectulf to others, and as I always tell people - use common sense!

2. Custom Titles
- The issue? Profanity. We're all mature here, and face it not everyone in the world uses profanity, and some can be offended by it. Some of us use profanity throughout the board, some more than others, some maybe never. And that's fine. We're not going to filter words, but its a little extreme to put pointless profanity in your Custom Titles. Pointless yelling, and pointless f-bomb's in a Custom Title are not needed.

- Now I think we can give you some leniance, maybe you're quoting someone, a book, or something, but just think about what you're putting in your Custom Title before you put it in. But, everyone has a different sense of leniance, and probably especially for this case. So, if you're unsure about putting something in your Custom Title that you think may offend others, just simply ask multiple people and get opinions. Yeah, its a little work on your part, but you won't be making anyone upset.

- If we see pointless flaming, profanity, or whatnot in Custom Titles you will be warned to change it. If you don't, then your ability to have a Custom Title will be revoked.

Current Issues (Flaming) and Custom Titles

1. Current Issues
- Both staff and members have noticed a lot of negativity around here as of lately. There have been some threads that have sparked blatant flaming of members, and take threads off-topic. If this continues (well even if it doesn't) expect staff to start taking actions. You will be warned. If warned multiple times, like we've always done it, you could lead yourself to a temporary banning ... or full banning if you continue even after a temporary ban.
