I am thinking some rules may need to be implemented regarding tags, and publicized messages in profiles and such

unixmad 07-18-2008 06:12 PM

If it's abused for spamming, we will come back to the old system, so respect rules.

It will be worth it to have more people being able to access the forums. I am happy, for now >_<

Skyld 07-18-2008 06:12 PM

Very nice. :) Glad to see you finally added the user groups after me and Spark mentioned it to you so long ago! Hehe.

Cute. I know how the forum members need specifics. :\

All forum rules apply to every aspect of the forums

Admins 07-18-2008 06:16 PM

Classic accounts should work fine now, accounts with previous limited time subscriptions will be added later.

Perhaps now that the forums are free, you should open them up to reflect the game more. I realize that a lot of classic servers do have their own forums, but a lot of them are unreliable, or uncomfortable for a lot of people. I know it hasn't worked in the past, but to get more people in, maybe the sections should look a little something like the attached.

unixmad 07-18-2008 06:32 PM

That's in my todo list and it's not that far from your list.

That's cool, if it's a better organization than the current with tons of forums that aren't used and descriptions that match I'll be very impressed :D

kia345 07-18-2008 06:45 PM

Hey Unix, since when you log on, you're only known to view one thread, I'll post this here. How come Sam can use an animated avatar, but normal players can't? Is this some form of discrimination? Or is Sam merely abusing his Super Moderator rights? I for one am appalled by this, no matter which the reason is correct.

unixmad 07-18-2008 06:50 PM

Being Super Moderator or Administrator give some privileges nothing new :)

I have still not decided if i will allow or not animated avatar.

Mods are allowed to break the rules they enforce? It clearly reads "You may not upload animated images", not "Only mods can upload animated images". Sam is breaking the rules, he's subject to ban.

If you have some questions about the moderation then they should be sent in a forum PM to Unixmad. They should NOT be posted in threads just because you feel like it.

Back to the topic of the forum upgrade please.

Yeah please do, and increase the size to 130x150. People love customizing, heck that's why the majority of people play Graal, so this would also be a big improvement.

Elizabeth 07-18-2008 06:58 PM

just put the moving image in your sig, its not a big deal. but i do agree on the "sams breaking the rules" thing

Great update! :D

Vimerge 07-18-2008 07:02 PM

Please enable animated avatars!

DustyPorViva 07-18-2008 07:07 PM

Must say, good change, good change.

Tigairius 07-18-2008 07:30 PM

Awesome!!! :D Great job you guys! I'm so glad the forums are free now. This is exciting.

Rufus 07-18-2008 07:36 PM

Change avatar size to 130x150 it's really not that big :mad:

Elk 07-18-2008 07:38 PM

Considering that the majority of graal has big computerscreens it is acceptable.
Must agree with Rufus.
In relation to the screensize the current avatarsize its just 1 dot :P.
Would also make the forums more lively...

I'm still on 1024 x 768. :cry:

Elk 07-18-2008 07:40 PM

Crono ≠ Majority
or do you want to be considered as a noob in the crowd or someone special ;P
