Welcome...
« on: February 01, 2011, 01:02:49 PM »
So, I set up this forum so that we could have a slightly easier experience in conversation than the yahoo group....   There is a section for images and other files under Media, and, if desired, I can even set up an "auction" style service.

Obviously, the forum is currently empty, until we get some people posting. :P

Thanks for the quick set up. Hopefully we can take advantage of the organization and format you set up. Fingers crossed here.

Huzzah! Down with that Yahoo! group nonsense!

Hmm, distinct lack of avatars here. I feel a bit like someone who's turned up to a tux party wearing a Watchmen costume ...  :o

Howdy Vile.
Guess you are getting around ;)


You'll all have to pardon Vile. He gets very excited, easily around cool games.
And if he can't find a cool game, he will make one.

Freedom is the right to speak your mind.

It is also the right to walk away from those you don't want to listen to.

I'd like to add some old LoS art I have, plus an image of a map for a scenario I wrote up back in the day, and maybe some photos of my painted figs - can I add new folders to the media section for that?

I'd also like to upload an avatar image, is that cool?

yes and yes...

Basically, if you have permission to do it, you can.  I'll move around anything that is wrongly placed

Kindred - I was wondering if you can manipulate the 'titles' that appear above the member profile avatar such as 'newbie' etc. What would people think of having them changed to machine units? I was thinking the levels might go something like this;

1] Gremlin [aka 'newbie']
2] Nightmare
3] Sniperbot
4] Predator
5] Stalker
6] Mk1 Assault Fiend
7] MkII Assault Fiend
8] MkIII Assault Fiend
10] Centurion
11] Dreadbot
12] Arch Fiend

I skipped a few units such as Runaways, Succubots & Scorpions, I'm not sure how many levels you can attain... Also, perhaps you'd want to just use Assault Fiend as a single level.

Any opinions on the idea?

There are 5 levels of post-count based groups in the forum software.
Newbie (0-49 posts)
Jr Member (50-99 posts)
Full Member (100-249 posts)
Sr Member (250-499 posts)
Hero Member (500+ posts)

I am actually going to add a restricted membergroup (0-5) which will not be able to post links.

However, to answer your basic question -- I can change the names very easily...

I can also set the username "color" and the "blobs" based on the group


-edit- I have changed the basic names and added the restricted group as "gremlins".

Cool - I would then suggest a shortened list as follows...

1] Nightmare [still like Gremlin here too, though that might also work well for a restricted level]
2] Predator
3] Assault Fiend
4] Dreadbot [or Centurion?]
5] Arch Fiend

All depending on whether anyone likes the idea?
