This weekend I plan to open the GuildCP to everyone again (it's currently restricted to 2001 accounts only).

I'm also going to add 1 new feature of your own choosing. Select the desired feature from the poll or select 'Other' and define your own custom one.

I can't think of anything I want. I'm probably the only one! :D

I'd like private notes to be implemented, but if we do get private notes there should be an option to ignore it from a certain person (To prevent harassing)

I'm gonna have to say info page. There are several tags that I administrate and nothing is more annoying than not being able to change my e-mail address for the tag that I administrate.

So please, info!

Private notes can wait.

The info page is for putting your guild info on the web site

I think restrictions should be lowered for 2k1 members...

say 100 hours to make a guild and 50 hours to support one..

I think the new nicknames should work right after you build the database, not 10 mins later. Also, the mailing list should be available to level 10 members too.

The nicknames can't work right away after you build the database because of one reason, and one reason only.

I don't know if this is true, so don't sue me, but, there are 2 servers. One for the website, and another for the game server. When you're adding nicks to the guild tag system, its saved to the website server. Then about every 10-45 minutes (Not sure on the time lapse.), the game server and website server connect and download stuff to the game server. That's why you have to wait a while before your new head/shield/sword come online. It can't be helped.

how about it so admins can set new members nicks (and they can still change it like normal) because sometimes you add people and they forget to log in and change their name.

how about a guild manager program, either separate or built into Graal? that way i dun even have to bother going to the site over and over.

We should be able to change our e-mail addresses. We should also be able to set people's names for them, kind of like it was before the control panel since some people just can't seem to get their names right. Maybe we could choose their default name when we sign them up, instead of their account name. After, they could still change it whenever they wanted. But it would be much better if any accounts could use the control panel...

There is a simple explanation. Since guild officers can add anyone to a guild without their approval, the new member must login and set their nick before that person can use the tag and be listed on public guilld roster. The public roster is what displays the total # of members. I do not want people atrifically inflating that number or adding members who do not want to be in that paticural guild.

Someday there will be a whole invintation thingy and the guild info will be on the database server so all changes are reflected instantly on the game server.

Info pages. im not in a guild but you know, it would be nice to see a small page with guild information, history, link to a website, administration/leader contacts etc.

i think it should be viewable to EVERYONE though, you know? just add it under the roster list in the guild list.

Galen claims he wouldn't be able to do that.

But there must be a way!

Hmm wel the setting nick problem I think can be solved by sending an E-Mail to the players ISP E-Mail for which you must click a link to confirm that you are a member, then guild administrators could set nicks while stopping them from adding an infinite number of people.

That goes along with the invitation bit. It would take time to make and quite frankly, I no longer have the time to do it. I work for 8 or more hours a day, 5 days a week. I sit in front of a computer all day and I don't particularly want to do it for an extended period of time when I get home. I need the weekends to have fun.


Lycia> Whenever someone sits down and converts the guild system form flat-file to SQL, then you'll all be able to change your emails. If I let you do it now, you risk the corruption of your entire guild data file. If it corrupts the guild would have to be deleted and re-created by hand.

I guess I'll just wait and transfer my guilds over to another account and then transfer it back over.

im not sure but you could try this:
Add yourself agfain with the new e-mail address
and then just make your self an admin of the guild,not sure but worth a try

Wow, I guess everyone needs something because I'm still the only one who voted for nothing. Maybe not having any guilds helps that...

You all have yourselves an info page now. I also updated the public roster display.
