A Couple of Suggestions
 
I have a couple of suggestions for both the website and the forums.

1. It doesn't seem like there is a ton of information of the swbattlefront.net website. Perhaps some detail about planets, the different units in the 3 factions that have been revealed should be posted.

2. I think all the different links to different articles by the numerous gajming websites should all be posted on one page in the website. That would make it easier for new people coming in.

3. Hosting for Battlefront clans would be a good idea. That has been very successfull in other games and is great for clans who don't have the money to buy a decent host.

4. On the clan forum, please make it a rule that each clan only get one recruitment thread for itself. I am amazed that numerous clans have 3, 4 threads dedicated to themselves.

I've been updating all the content, but it's a matter of getting it back on the site. Somebody reset the FTP info, so it'll be fixed soon - I'm also on vacation, so that's why there's been a lack of moderation and such. Point taken, though :)

We can do that, or we can make a sticky thread in the main discussion forum. That way, it can be up with everything that most new people will read. And people can just add on to it when they find something new, making it member-driven :)

If memory serves me correctly, it's LFN policy only to provide hosting to mod projects, and not to clans. Again, this might be wrong, but I'm about 98% sure of this.

Yeah, I totally agree with that. Again, I'm not readily available these days, and there SHOULD be moderators lurking this area, but I'll try to get on as often as possible...


Suggestions taken :D

Thatīs correct. There are SOO much clans for every game it would be impossible to host em all. So LFN doesnt host any unless they have something to do with modding.

Correct aswell. People are watching at times.

Maybe a suggestion to you Boran, whenever you see such multiple thread being created or other things that arent actually by the book, you can pm supermods or use the "report post" feature.

Perhaps you should hire a couple more mods for these forums.

I think Doomgiver would be a decent mod.

boran, my son...

I've been watching ALL of you, making considerations for moderators, since you all started posting in here :D

I'm kinda like Santa. I know when you've been nice and naughty. And for gifts, I give the good boys and girls moderator positions XD

Uh oh. (looks around the room, notices one of Jed's spies hiding behind a bookshelf). I'm on to you.

You should be noticing them, otherwise the people I've told to lurk here haven't been doing their job whilst I enjoy my house at the beach. :D

VanLingo 08-13-2004 06:31 AM

The only mods I ever see are the ones that insist on posting 1500-word debates on God and Iraq.

Donīt let your eyes fool you ;)

yaebginn 08-15-2004 10:22 AM

boran, darnit. you told him to hire new mods! now it has happened. be careful what you wish for. I'm surprised tfighter isnt a mod yet. maybe he'll be on the next batch.

There's no next batch.

yaebginn 08-15-2004 03:22 PM

so no no new mods will ever be created?

jack "odc" one. 08-15-2004 04:50 PM

You guys really need to calm down. I'm not about dragging stuff from other threads in here, but weren't you talking excessively about obeying? Bad example, OK, but what exactly is your point?

yaebginn 08-15-2004 05:12 PM

obeying real authority. higher authority.

jack "odc" one. 08-15-2004 05:25 PM

It's the mods, supermods and admins who run this place, so they obviously have the powers, and because of that, authority here. There is no other or higher authority here. Except maybe the man who operates the Lucasforums-server-power-switch. But i think he will be one of the romping buddies of the mods, supermods and admins.

Of course you could easily run your own forum, anytime.

Well the game's got a lot of potential of bringing in a crap-load of new forum members.

So I guess I should revise my statement that I don't intend on creating new mods, but under different circumstances, I'm sure there's a possibility :)

Doomie 08-20-2004 05:54 AM

Aw... he proposed me... I'm touched...

I'm sure i'd be as abusive and sarcastic as a real Mod...




I keed, I keeeed

Was it really necessary to bump this thread and try to act like ET? I think not. :dozey:

El Sitherino 08-20-2004 06:41 AM

*gives one more bumpy*
 
HAHAHAHA! school'd.

Doomie 08-20-2004 07:01 AM

Sorry. I didn't notice this thread was so old...

But it IS my right, y'know. If ET mis allowed to act that way, i'm allowed too.

- Divide the site and forums based on platform: PC, PS2, XBox

- Get involved with ladders and leagues like this one that just appeared yesterday/today Star Wars Battles

- Provide a clan list for players to search at their leisure, very basic just the clan and its link

Alegis 09-15-2004 03:35 AM

-Why divide? Its mostly the same. We cover all 3. Though of course mostly PC cause of the modifications.

-Leagues list could be posted in a stickyness in clans forums as well.

-Already exists. look in some stickies in clans forums, theres a clan database, a topic where clans can post their info in a compact post...

I don't like the didviding neither. Somebody proposed it a time ago, but are there so many things that only aply on one platform?

MoonSlasher 09-16-2004 02:46 PM

i am sorry for bringing up bad topics, but i have thought that this was a better thread to add my suggestments, instead of making a new thread (which is pointless).

anyways, going on-topic.
I suggest that the site would have Video Clips of the game.
Detailed information on the weapons, vehicles, planets ect..
More Content to the site itself.

Don't worry, sir, all content will be updated hopefully by the game's release, maybe even by tomorrow ^_^

Video Clips are a nice idea, I'm thinking we can get that organized once the game comes out.

MoonSlasher 09-16-2004 02:55 PM

Thank you very much for the quick reply, i will be looking forward to the site's improvments.:D

Maybe it's an idea to kame a thread for first impressions, cause as it looks now everybody is making one of his own.

We are very well aware of that and have already our hands full with all the new people.
