Entry: New Bloggers
As you guys might have noticed, Slip Anc started accepting applications for new bloggers. A few of the more well-known writers claim that they have sent applications, so the competition will probably be tough. The future-bloggers will receive forum recognition through a usertitle, a personal blogger’s account, and “Total Awesomeness”, of course. These perks are likely to attract many applications. These openings are an awesome opportunity for many of you who would enjoy being involved, and know how to write. I’m personally looking forward to the talent that will be displayed to the community through these blogs. As soon as the spots are filled and names are released, I’ll update you guys.
As you all know, Wibbles is in desperate need of a makeover; one that would require more than just the occasional five day ban to a mentally dysfunctional poster. No, friends, Wibbles is in need being completely re-altered, a fresh new start to redeem itself from the notorious shit-spawn of bad trolling and overused memes.
Yes it would be a demanding, and to some an almost impossible task, but this is change we can believe in…a pretecessor to greater, healthier Wibbles. Reverting the board back to “pre-Rapid Thread” quality is the easy part, however making the board STAY that way for over a week would be the much more challenging and rigourous half of it. You see, the previous attempts to change Wibbles failed miserably for a multitude of reasons, but here is the most promintent: nazism. Yes well, sort of, let me elaborate. Moderators cracked down too hard and laid too many bars in only a concentrated period of time…so it’s like trying to run a marathon by sprinting as fast as you can and stopping after ten seconds, get it?
Well, to basically summarize my rant there would need to be boundaries set in stone, a clear-cut system to what you CAN and CAN’T do. Easy enough? Make it happen Toribash!
Clan Admins stepping up to the plate
As we approach the end of Janurary, it is becoming evident that 2011 will be a year filled with change. Super Moderators openly recruiting, GameKeepers and ToriAgents merged together into the GameMasters, spots being filled in the staff quicker than ever, and all of this in the first month of the year! In the midst of all this reform, the Clan Admins have finally decided to step up to the plate and do some work themselves. Usernames Gynx and Lightningkid, two of the three former Clan Admins, have been removed from their posts and substituted by usernames Uric and Alan due to inactivity. Along with the new staff members taking close care of the clans section, clan events have also started emerging. The first of what will become a series of weekly events hosted by username Fish requires a member of each participating official or unofficial clan to post a detailed clan story for the prize of ten thousand toricredits. Expect interactive events similar to this one and don’t be shy to sign up for one!
How many brix have been shat on the process of reading this?
For log time, there were to groups that moderated in-game.
There were Gamekeepers and ToriAgents
Gamekeepers where in charged of tournaments and acted like in-game police.
And ToriAgents, acted as server sitters, that means that they just sit at newbies servers such us Begginers or Intermidiate servers, and they made sure everything run ok and prevent bans.
Now, there is a new moderation class, with merged Gamekeepers and ToriAgents, they are called GameMasters.
GameMasters, have the same function of GameKeepers and ToriAgents, so they are encharged of everything that happens in-game, such as tourneys, events, in-game police and fun stuff.
New Smods are in the building!
After a week of apps and intense waiting, seven new smods have been chosen and are now hitting up the forums, handing out bans and infractions, eager to make their mark on Toribash for ever. They will be the next generation of police, law enforcers and supporters. The seven lucky dwarfs now basking in blue are BlackBear, Boredpayne, Enzu, Gynx, Ravenger, Raya75 and war_hero. Watch out for these guys, make a slip and they’ll be on your ass and you’ll end up like Gorman! The ban list’s first page is full of fresh and funny cases of miserable members, breaking the rules of the forum. Boredpayne has already handed out 16 perm bans, all for sock puppet alts. This guy, serious about his crime and punishment. He’s like the Judge Judy of the forums. Our hearts go out to you Bored and we all hope that you can find and extinguish the last of these pesky alts. Also on the list is young Enzu, having only joined the forums in February of 2010, he must have really made an impression in the last year and I’d wager that he has much more to show us. Also on the list is a guy called war_hero, heard of him? I just don’t understand why he hasn’t got Smod before now?
All in all, these guys deserve it. The competition was fierce and they arose to the challenge. Happy banning guys, and happy reading Toribash.
Ever had a problem with staff members amusing their powers? *cough*shin*cough*
Oh, and jalis is gone now, so no point complaining about him. ;o
Anyway, the new Complaint Box is the place to go if you feel any of the staff members have been particularly nasty to you. Feel their moderation sucks? Then come here and express your feelings; let us know :3
The Box is hiding in Discussion, above the blog news. Be sure to read the rules, ’cause if you didn’t you’d be stupid.
Now after these awesome posts note that I’m still waiting for a few applicants to send in their examples.
These guys will now proceed to be absolutely and totally awesome
