Staff Applications Re-Opened

The Administration team came to the conclusion that a handful of staff has been too -less active- over quite some time, and something just needed to be done about it.

So, we came to conclusion to simply do some staff changing, and reopen the applications to allow other members the opportunity of landing a spot on staff.

-However- if you were a previous member on staff, or demoted and felt that this action was either unfair, unjust, or just simply out of place (there was no discussion outside of the Administrators this time around. Simply said, if you want us to reconsider your postion, just let us know, but be ready to possibly answer a few things. The issue has been brought up before, but nothing was really done) ... you may contact me via PM's to discuss the matter (I'd say AIM, but the most of you know that's hardly possible with me).

We went with our best judgement, and you should understand being a member on staff is not exactly a need, it's a privelage, and things like this are absolutely not personal. We felt this needed to be done for the best of the community.

Block Layout and other stuff.

It's back, and all the old blocked layouts are still there.

You can use it by going in that person's profile and click on the appropriate link (it's under "Misc").

Also, I'm doing some work on the board, so if you see errors, don't be surprised. If you see errors when I'm not on (and haven't been on for 15 minutes), then you can PM me.

Edit: There's still some problems with announcements on the index, I'll try to fix that later.

AcmlmBoard v1.92.08

As you can see, the board took a little change. We've downgraded / upgraded to Xkeeper's new 1.92.08 (funny name).

Why?
- Development on the 1.A series has, pretty much stopped. The people who were coding for it, just seemed to have left the AcmlmBoard community, so if we were to stick with it, we wouldn't have any new versions, updates, or anything to look forward to.
- Half of the things 1.A3 had, were uncomplete, sloppy, and didn't even work.
- The use of a Abuse Forum, can easily replace the Disciplinary Tracker (like we used to).
- Folders, files, and everything in 1.A3 was sloppy, and scared me like Acmlm+Erk.
-----------------
- Xkeeper has been working heavily on this board, which comes from 1.92. It's cleaner, has better security, and we'll have good updates to look forward to.

I, and I'm sure most of you, can all hope this is the last "version switch" we go through.

You can expect a few things here and there to be re-added, as quickly as possible, such as User Comments, the old PM Box with Folders, etc. I will also probably re-add our affiliates as soon as possible.

But as you can see, there's still a few issues here, GD doesn't seem to work (graphic, php images. The Exp, Level, etc numbers next to posts. You can switch to Regular w/o Number Graphics to see the text though). And there's a few errors here and there (Profile.php right now).

If you find anything wrong, not working, errors, something not displaying correct, images not displaying, please give me a PM.

Recent and Short-Future Downtimes

Expect the board to be going up and down for the next couple of days.

Simply put, I'm behind my payments for my host. So, my account has been (somewhat?) deactivated for the time being because I'm -very- behind.

Money isn't an issue. But, I just recently opened up a checking / debit account a few days ago, and it'll take about 7 days for me to receive my checks and card in the mail. So, I won't be able to make the payment until this weekend, or shortly after. So, you can expect the site to continue to do this for a few more days (probably).

Sorry. I'll be sending a chunky check, so after this, expect XG to be in the lands of gold for quite some time.

Accepting Local Moderator Applications

Go here to fill out the application if you're interested in becoming staff.

There is no guarantee that you will and will not be promoted, and it's undecided whether or not there will be 1 person, or maybe 2 promoted, or so on.

So, for now post your applications in that thread, and staff will review them, and in time we may inform you about your application to take it into further discussion.

-Old- Arena and Shop put back up

For the moment.

You can check out the Battle Arena here, and the Shop here.

Feel free to give feedback to myself, and SyntaxLegend (mainly) if he wants it.

He's started work on a new one, and if you really like the current one, know that the new one will be far superior. If you really like it, and can't wait for a new one, we've got to show him just that.

So for now, check it out if didn't get a chance to see it before, and let myself and SyntaxLegend know if you'd like to see things like this again here at the board.

Custom Titles

Seems a lot of people are starting to hit over 500 posts as of lately.

I'm still allowing user titles to be given out at this amount, but it isn't yet automated. So, for you to get the ability to have a Custom Title, you'll need to PM an adminstrator once or after you have 500 posts, and they'll give you some temporary title, then you can edit it from there on.

Board URL and various things that are related.

From now on, I would ask you all to use the URL http://board.xeogaming.net
instead of http://www.xeogaming.net/board/.

Note that it doesn't make a big difference (as the links will get you to board.xeogaming.net anyway. But just to stay safe, use board.xeogaming.net) I'm saying this so none of you ask questions.

Now, this simple url change now doesn't mess up the $root variable in this board's code.

That means that all admin functions are now available once again (Edit User, in particular), the Disciplinary Tracker (which was one of 1.A3 main features) is also working.

So banning anyone who acts like an idiot will now be easier.

P.S: That also mean to admins should now accept your name change requests.

Have a nice day!

Xeogaming [official] site launched!

http://www.xeogaming.net/

No joke, after 12 months of waiting ... it's back, and here to stay!
(and hey, it's not ugly!)

So, I recently discovered PHP-Fusion, just another Content Mangement System, but judging by the PHP-Fusion site, I thought it looked pretty nice. So today, I stayed home sick from work and decided to give it a shot ... and, I've already fallen in love.

The CMS is great, organized, and slick looking. I truly believe Xeogaming has officially been born on this day.

It's going to need a lot of work though, idea's, and suggestions. Reviews can now be submitted on the site. We need ideas for Links, Downloads, and I hopefully can figure out how to get the Photo Gallery working correctly, that way you guys could upload your original art up on Xeogaming and show everyone, get comments, and everything.

And I'm still personally, in a state of being not-so-active, so really, I'm going to need you guys' every help I can get on this!

I will also need some staff, people who are willing to watch the site, keep it clean, and so forth. It doesn't matter if you're not staff here or not, but keep in mind I'm not making any promises of any kind this time. But if you're interested, PM me here at the board, and explain some reasoning (I mean, I just don't want to get a PM saying *Make me an admin!*, so yeah).

We could also use hits. Tell people about the site, link them here, heck we could start seeing new members here in a few weeks or so now that the site is up with keywords, and everything. If you know of any smaller communities out there that might be willing to Affiliate, again, let me know!

I know it was random, and I didn't even think I'd keep the PHP-Fusion CMS up on the site until I messed around with it, but I truly think Xeogaming-history has been made today, and I'm really hoping this is the start of a new beginning.

Cheers!

Happy Anniversary!

That's right, Xeogaming is officially no longer a youngin'!

Xeogaming has now been around for an entire year. We've been through ups and downs, and even two restarts, but we're already and for the 3rd time on our way to 30,000 posts, and I don't think we'll be stopping anytime soon.

A special thanks to everyone. Without you guys, this place would be absolutely nothing. So, I'd like you all, each and everyone of you to take this time to pat yourselves on that back. Congratulations to all, and to Xeogaming everyone!

This is just the beginning, there are no plans for Xeogaming going anywhere for a very long time.

I hope from this day forward we will only continue to see the community we've created here at Xeogaming continue to grow.

Special : Good until August 21, if -anyone- gets a Posting Spree, you will be granted the ability to have a Custom Title. I hope we can all boost up posting this week, even if our posts are shorter and don't have as much quality, this is a time for us to go crazy on Xeogaming! Let the Spree's begin!

If you get a Posting Spree, and already have a Custom Title, I'm sure we can work out another arangement.

Thank you everyone, here's to another great year for Xeogaming!

No more name changes for awhile

Please, do not request a name change for the next week or so. I just recently got a ton of requests in, and well the thing is, since the server has an issue with my root directory, a lot of things on the board aren't working right now, this includes edituser.php.

So, if I wanted to change anyones name I'd have to go in phpmyadmin, it just takes more time. I'm not pointing fingers, and you guys never did anything wrong, it's just gotten to be a little hectic to do this.

So please, for about the next week or so, name requests sent to admins will be ignored.

Working on the upgrade to 1.A3 (buggy!)

I'll probably be working on the upgrade to the AcmlmBoard 1.A3 for the next couple of days (yes, days. Works really gotten to me).

Thing is, I was told that 3/4 of the files need to be overwritten. So, you're asking me "So what?"

Well, I'll have to re-edit some files again, such as editprofile.php and add in Yahoo and MSN messanger fields again, and so on. And more things here and there. So if you see some features that we had disappear, don't fret, more than likely it's just being worked on.

And right now, for staff at least, things are quite buggy. I still haven't inserted the new SQL tables, so yeah ...

So as of now we're in a transition in upgrading the board, new things and features will be explained in my next announcement once this is completed.

But for now, since I've already gotten a lot of PM's about it:

System Messages: Are, basically private messages that you receive from staff anonymously. They're used for sending warnings, information, and whatnot. So they're NOT good to get.

I'll probably be shrinking up the PM / SM table up a bit, since I think it's a little bulky up there at the top.

Other News: Expect a new "Tech" category, and a new Programming Forum sometime soon.



And as for other news, again, use common sense and be respectful in the realm of Sim-Battling. Don't bring Sim-Battling up in any other forums, except for the Sim forums themselves, unless it is a dedicated topic to discussing Sim and so forth.

Recent Sim-battle Arena uproar.

Leave it to the Sim/RP-Discussion forum if you any complain, just wanna bitch about some battle, etc.

Don't FUCKING BRING TO THE NEWBIE THREADS OR ANYWERE ELSE (of course, the 'faulty' battle thread is fine)

Note: I don't like having to interfere in the Sim-Battle affairs, but It's not like I have much choice.

Itemshop, Arena, Battle Stats are all down ~

Ponterios has begun work on a new Item Shop and Battle Hack that is currently progressing smoothly. He suggested I take down the current ones, so we can await the new Shop, and Arena.

Judging from what Ponterios has told me, the new Shop and Arena will be both more advanced, secure, and probably overall more fun. So, this is good news.

Just informing everyone, so please no more "Where is the arena?" threads from here on out.

And I will keep you guys informed with the progress.

It has come to my attention. [READ]

"The board is boring now. Why?" (I am not pointing fingers here. Read my entire announcement to understand my thoughts on this current issue)

Why what? What am I supposed to say? Do you think I seriously have an answer to such a question? No.

Ask yourself that. Why are you bored with it?

I understand that a messageboard should not be someones life, and other things are much more important, but as a board owner I have just about had it with these entirely -same- conversations and arguements from people that I have heard again and again over the last month or so; that the board is not what it used to be.

If you want to sit there, and moan and groan on and on about it, I wish I could pat you on the back for a great amount of effort that you're putting in to fix the issue.

The question is not why is the board boring, why has it become boring for you?

It's nothing I, or any of the staff have done, or any of the members have done for that matter. People change, members come and go, some leave and don't come back, it's the life of a messageboard and you'll have to accept it.

If you wish to leave, seriously, what can I do to stop you? Absolutely nothing. It's your choice. But if we [a large group] of members, keep it up with this kind of attitude, you should clearly understand by now, it's not helping and it's not going to change anything. If you want this place to change, get involved, do things, even though maybe you're having a bad day, be cheerfuly on the board!

I can honestly elaberate on this issue myself. It's human nature to see flaws, and things you wish were different. Over the past 2 months or so this place has slowed down, incredibly compared to what it used to be. I've accepted that fact, and I know for a fact it could more than likely be because this place has had so many restarts, and gotten "hacked" more than a few times.

But before I go on, ask this:
Do you think I wanted these things to happen here?

No. I have always done the best of what I can to keep this place up to date, and to keep records of our past post counts, our old threads. You can ask DarkSlaya, Ice Man, Randy, and probably a few other people about this; when the Acmlmboard 1.A2 package came out, many doupted a conversion from Acmlm+Erk would be possible. I proved some to be wrong when I put a lot of work, and a lot of effort into managing the conversion and savoring what I could from the old board system and intergrated it into the newer and official Acmlmboard 1.A2. If it would have been impossible to keep our post count, and threads, and all of that, I wouldn't have done it: For you guys, I wanted to keep what we had.

It's things like that that show dedication. Although I've come close to losing it sometimes when there had been past issues, I always kept a positive stance about this place and gave it the best I could to keep it going.

As of now I think this board is beginning to pick back up to it's old ways, in activity, and flourishment. New members are appearing often, some that are actually sticking around. I think this past Semester was a bump in the road for us all, but now we're starting to overcome that bump.

Now, I am very proud of this board, and am surprised that my boards have been going strong since 2003. I, in no way take this place for granted. And I completely acknowledge, and understand, that people won't always be there. Members will leave, and I respect that.

But if you're going to do so, and or don't like this place, please, if I can be, then so can you; simply be respectful about it.

Transition to 1.A2 in the making. [Status: Screw temporary ice, everything's nearly fixed.]

As I'm writing this, bugs are being fixed and and stuff like that.

Some bugs are annoying, yes, but bear with us (Xeo and myself are doing stuff as fast as we can).

Also, post bugs and stuff in the proper stickied thread in general.

To be fixed
- PM count isn't right (it won't notify you, actually)
- The infamous layout attack (switch to "Auto-Updating" fixes it, or switching to "Disable" fixes it too)
- Some minor stuff.
- newposts.php needs a bit work (Recent Posts)
- Mark All Forums cannot be changed through editprofile. We'll probably move it to be after "Favorites" at the top.
- Polls don't work

Edit: Old ranks back, too. You've got 4 ranksets to choose from (plus "None").

Edit 2: Also, I edited some users so they don't have to deal with the whole "AE Torture" scheme.

Working Now / Finished
- You now gain currency again. (50 per post, 75 per thread)
- FAQ updated
- Can Edit your MSN and Yahoo Screenames now.
- PM's should now work fine.
- Polls work
- Forgot to put in titleoption for users, you can now edit your Custom Title if you meet the requirements. (1000+ posts)
- Edituser redirect works.
- Recent Posts now works.
