It’s a nice greyscale theme with black and red accents and does an admirable job of tying the forums together more closely with the shop and market systems. It also adds a few nice touches like dynamic width (Widescreen users rejoice! You can make the most of your screen!), and collapsible forum sections, so you can hide places that you rarely visit for quicker navigation if you so desire.
Anyways, enough talking about it here, go and see it for yourself!
Seven months ago (July 21, 2008) the forums reached half million posts. Not bad for a community revolving around one game isn’t it. Most of it were raving rants about cheaters, farmers and “can I borrow credits” and the multitude of internet memes… but in any case, for a game you can fit on a travel sized USB disk, the game forums is pretty popular and active.
And what post about statistics is complete without visual aid(s) eh? Plotting the growth in a crudely made chart with three data points…
And extrapolating the data… calculating percentage of error, using satellite data and forecasting by eye, you can see that my prediction says that we may be hitting a million posts after valentines day. Pretty sweet. Drakhir had garnered the 500,000th post last July and got himself a (nearly) endless supply of credits for his trouble.
I wonder what the millionth poster will get? Exclusive items? A personal ingame entourage? An interview with a magazine? A foot massage from the player of his choosing? Who knows… all I can say is good job Toribash for both nurturing a great game, and a community to boot.
The history of the Toribash Forums has been full of heated drama regarding the power of those great’n'mighty Moderators and Admins. At the same time, the population of Toribash players and forum posters has been steadily increasing, requiring more monitoring and upkeep.
So instead of creating a rash of new Global Moderators, hanz0 has wisely chosen to appoint Local Moderators to govern individual forums. Applications can be submitted now! You can check out the thread here.
In other news, the old Clan Council is being resurrected by head Clan Moderator, HebrewHamr:
Because of the recent outburst in official clans, we have decided to bring back the clan council.
The clan council is a system used to decide whether or not a clan can become official. Members will vote on every potential clan that comes through. If a clan passes the council vote, it’s made official. If the council doesn’t pass it, it can reapply at another time.
As with the appointment of new Local Moderators by hanz0, HebrewHamr is looking for clear-headed Council members to form the new Clan Council. If this strikes your interest, you can post your application here.
Support the Toribash community, and get involved!
