Eccbox's Crazy Forum Plan

Post  Eccbox on Wed Sep 04, 2013 10:54 am

Problem: Our forums are inactive and suck.
Most of you wont even see this post.

Alright here is my crazy plan.

We do a Forum Reset.
Brand new Forum. And we implement this plugin to the server
http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/forum-bridge/

Now we only use a few features of the plugin. Such as in game reward for posting to forums. And matched ranks. We then change Noble requirement to a set amount of posting to the forum. No Spamming. Noble as a posting set requirement will take some time but will do away with "Ive been playing for a while can I get noble?"

Now this is a heavy reset as it will reset the forum system and the Noble System. Perhaps we can do it when 1.7 rolls along and call the whole thing Wingnuts 2

Any suggestions to better implement this plugin or people who dont want it speak up xP

I completely agree, i'd be happy to help with any graphics for the new forum (banners etc)

Can we start working on stuff for the restart before-hand otherwise the forums would lag behind the map reset

I think that's a much better idea than scrapping the noble title altogether. I also think that going back to forum posting and approval for plebs to become squires is a good idea too - it displays a stronger image of community to plebs, you know, sets the expectation right-off-the-bat for forum involvement.....i read through topics anyway...worked for me Razz

I'll stew on some other ideas as well.

And unless you were planning on deleting completely the old forum and pasting the important stuff to the new one....( I've heard this line somewhere before....where was it? ) someone needs to see about cleaning up the threads and removing some of the obsolete stuff...
quick example:

Wingnuts Wicked Minecraft :: Minecraft Servers :: Community Members Only :: Wingnut World Sites to visit
- these things don't exist anymore -_-

Wingnuts Wicked Minecraft :: Minecraft Servers :: Community Members Only :: World Projects
- these things don't exist anymore either.

Wingnuts Wicked Minecraft :: Minecraft Servers :: Community Members Only :: The Inside goss (Community Member only talk) :: Station Locations
- these things don't exist anymore.

etc...

I think the problem here is stagnation. People won't post things about world sites to visit - for example - on a thread that is two years old with stuff they have never seen before from maps that don't exist anymore.
