Hear yea hear yea, h e r e ' s t he N e W s!
Home Base is launched! *gasp* *uproarious applause* I dub all thee Hubbles, after the Hub Island.
I can't reiterate enough that it's a beta version, and there are bugs - so please let us know about anything you find over in this thread: /354371
I won't be able to respond to everyone in that thread, but I'm compiling all the bugs/requests/feedback people have and sharing it with the rest of the team so we can keep making better updates.
@Everyone Looks like 2-3 days ago Phil got the flu and it caused a bunch of issues with post approvals. (Just to be clear - Phil is not a person, I just enjoy the name for the filter you've come up with) I'm looking into exactly what happened. If it's possible for us to do so, would you prefer the posts you attemped to make to all of a sudden come through? Or would you rather just try reposting the ones that are still relevant?
@PhantomDraco I didn't answer because it was coming out the following day~! Surprise! :D There will be special events in Home Base, esp over the summer.
@Galaxian A motto, hm... I have to think more about this, but for now here's this:
-Talk things out in a thread together if you have a disagreement
-Remember that the filter causes post delay, and miscommunications happen
-Don't be afraid to take a break from the forums if you're getting stressed or for any reason
-Recognize that others have different backgrounds and upbringings than you
-Remember that the forums are big, you can join a different RP if things aren't working out, or decide to compromise
-Above all else: show respect to each other!
@Nightengale I'm a little scared but also in games I'm often a rogue/thief-type character with poison weapons so I can appreciate.
@Cyclone Math = Truth
@Glamour Definitely looks like something happened 2 or so days ago where a bunch of posts got lost in post approval. The ones that didn't come through for you weren't rejected, they just weren't....anything-ed. You can try re-posting, whatever happened over the weekend is over now.
@Dog Yes, a few months ago we removed a number of the older MBs.
@Cloudburst I guess something was going on with the filter and siggies weren't coming through or were being left for me to approve. I found a whole bunch of sigs and was able to approve them. You should see the updated version now :) Also....were you the one who beat my Alpha Blitz highscore?
@Andromeda I'm finding out for you. Many of your posts over the weekend that did not come through, obviously should have. Nothing is wrong with Elvis Presley's hair color. You had one form that I see did get rejected by the filter, for Olli. There's one sentence in it ("poison first, interrogate later") that might be catching it. Again, overall I really don't see anything wrong with the form. You can try it again with/without that line.
@Ishmael Big Oof. I'm sorry :-/
I've been sneaking Home Base-related things into the prompts every once and a while...for months wahaha. I like to think of the giant book in the giant tree as a book-meteor that crash landed onto the island. Where do you think it came from?
Singularity is rebooting his WoF fanfic "The Prince of Raining Night" : /354265
Neptune is (about to) update their story "Chime" - (Neptune, try reposting your new chap. It was caught up in the filter issue I explained above ^^) /349096
As for a new RP, Aqualoki7 is starting up a bird-human hybrid themed RP called Aves Academy: /354558
Checking through some stuff now, I'll update if there's anything I need to warn ppl about.
