PostSubject: June 7: Introducing the Arcade, Mood, Useful Links, and More!   June 7th 2010, 5:19 pm

Hello guys Very Happy.

My previous topic "Major Forum Updates" gave you a heads up on some of the expected updates I've been slowly working/adding onto the site. I haven't had the chance to add everything I planned on, but a majority of it has made it's way onto the site. I hope you guys enjoy some of these updates and find them useful as it took quite some work and time to figure out how these would be done! Here is a list of what has been added:

Miscellaneous Updates:
  • A chatbox pop up link has been added to the Homepage message, this will open a minimized pop up for the chatbox.
  • The Forum Width has been changed to 90%, making the forums wider than before.
  • "Noob" Usergroup has been removed.
  • Points Field has been removed.
  • The "Who's Online?" imagine at the bottom of the forums has been changed.


New Forum Categories:
  • A "Moderator" section has been added for Forum Moderators.
  • A "Gaming" section has been added where users can discuss Video Games, Consoles, etc. This can be found under the "General" category.
  • A "Reviews" sub-forum has been added to the "Gaming" section to share your reviews on games.
  • The "Media" section has been updated with 4 sub-categories: Videos, Music, Art, Writing.


Profile Updates:
  • Profile Field added: What type of player are you?
    *] Profile Field added: Favorite Weapon
  • Profile Field added: Equipment/Gear
  • Profile Field added: Favorite Map(s)
  • Profile Field added: Nickname
  • "Jobs/Hobbies" field has been changed to "Interests"
  • Contact Field added: Xfire Username
  • A "Warning Level" field has been added to indicate the number of warnings you have received by a Moderator.
    : Clean
    : Moderate
    : Dangerous
    : Dirty
    : Banned


Colors | Images | Buttons:
  • Profile Fields on a post have been bolded and color-coded.
  • The Calendar Navbar button has been made to fit the existing Navbar buttons.
  • New Rank Badges (Admin, Super Mod, Clan Admin, Moderator, Member, Banned) have been redesigned with a glossy-dark theme.


Moods:
You can set your mood by going to your Profile settings. Currently, you can choose from the following:
Accomplished, Alone, Angry, Annoyed, Anxious, Ashamed, Blah, Bored, Bouncy, Calm, Cheerful, Cold, Confused, Cool, Curious, Disappointed, Evil, Excited, Happy, Lazy, In Love, Relaxed, Sad, Shocked, Tired. These will display as icons on your profile/posts.

Useful Links:
This can be found on the Right side of the forums and when hovered over will display a list of links that will redirect you to the Official Combat Arms page, Nexon website, our Clan Page, Forum Admin Email/Contact form, FAQ, and more.


Profile Widget:
A small Profile Widget and "Who is Online" widget have been added to the right side of the forum, displaying your Post Count, Private Messages, and statistics of who is online. If possible, changes will be made to the Profile Widget to display your mood and a "What are you doing/Status" updater. For guests, this will instead be replaced my a "Login" menu.

Arcade:
An Arcade page has been added that will redirect you to a list of flash games you can play in your spare time. The arcade can be found by clicking on the "Arcade" button on the navbar. Just click on a game and play! As of now, there are only 11 games, but many more will be added soon.

Other Updates
Internet Radio: Not certain if this will be added. I'd like to hear whether members would find this useful or not first before officially announcing it. To view this Internet Radio widget I have added, click HERE.

Site Banner: My previous attempts at creating a new site banner have failed. My new idea is to instead, replace the banner with a clan picture of a couple of UnDefiable. members (this can be done ingame), and then have our Clan Emblem and name somewhere on there to represent our clan. If other members like this idea, we can set up a clan event date/time to take the picture.

Nice!!!! I can't seem to find the first 4 profile updates though. Although the Warning Level interface looks good I think its a bit too public and people who have anything lower than clean would probably feel like quitting even if the warning was for something small and unintentional. The internet radio seems like something that isn't really necessary for the site but I guess having an internet radio is kind of nice. Having a clan picture for the banner (if you Photoshop it with better graphical effects) would be good but we would have to get a LOT of members to do this to make the picture interesting and give people who are looking at the site and just joined or about to join the impression that this is an active clan and can easily get 16 members to get a picture.

My bad, I forgot to change the permissions for the Player Type, Maps and Gear so that users can change it themselves. You should now be able to do so by going to your Profile settings.

The Warning Level only counts warning as serious offenses, so small things like multiple posts or profanity wouldn't be counted. The Warning Level will drop down towards Moderate, Dangerous or Dirty depending on how many times the user has been reported for things like spamming, posting harmful links, Fighting with other members, or in general breaking Forum Rules.

Hopefully the Clan Picture/Site Banner thing will work out if other members are willing to get on for a mere 10 minutes or so. I think it would reflect our clan pretty well.

It should be noted that moderators/admins can manually set warning levels if we would like to ban someone. I'm not sure reporting posts affects warning levels. Clarification, please?

Internet radio is nice but I don't particularly like Shoutcast's service. Ubuntu has a nice internet radio client if you know stations. Winamp also has internet radio through Shoutcast so you aren't tied to a browser window to keep listening to your music, so I think it's better off to go that route. I can write up a guide on setting up Winamp if it's deemed necessary but I don't think it will be.

Lol, an Elmo/Teletubbies/Barney theme song? xD

Btw, slight changes to updates:
1. The "Name" profile field has been changed to "Nickname" and has been fixed so that you can change it yourself through your profile settings.
2. I've added a "Favorite Weapon" profile field.

I just filled mine all out and if you ever edit your profile, those new fields you added are mandatory. It's kind of annoying, because I wanted to leave "Nickname" blank. >_>

Hm...could have sworn I set it to optional. Just changed it though so it's not required anymore.

The rest are meant to be required though, so that we'll have some basic info of the newest registered user (in case they don't actually post an introduction thread).

I'd have joined on a mule if I were you. Some change is nice but I really doubt you will find a clan as nice as ours with a forum and if you do they will probably be like the rest of the ones I've seen were full of people who use their clans to form camping formations and Mod Kick anyone that is better than them.

On a side note I don't know how specifically it should be done but I think we should also have specific groups for members based on their abilities so we can categorize peoples' better (like CQC, Sniper, Mid range, ect).

Agreed. UnDefiable. is the best clan/guild/group of like-minded individuals playing the same game I've ever been in. Nothing compares to the camaraderie we have here.

If there was a better clan out there, I would have left back when EW went down, but with Invoked at the helm, things have only gotten even better.

While I like that idea, we're still having trouble getting members to join the forum, and even then we've only recently started having multiple people in-game for CWs at the same time. I feel like it's a bit early to start that. As it is, we just take whoever is online and willing to put together a team of 4 or 5 and hope for the best, not because we aren't being strategic, but it's because it's all we've got.
