Well, I'm going to try to be secretive mostly, but there are some things we'd like your opinions on.

Soon, there will be a new VIII site. It's already in the works, some bugs being hammered out. I'm going to post some features that we've thought of, but of which we're still figuring out the feasibility.

If you have any more suggestions, please post them. If you'd like to vote for more than one thing, feel free to vote with multiple accounts.

Note: some things that will not be changed are gameplay, our use of phpBB or domain name.

Wiki.

I don't really like the idea of online conversations being recorded, personally.

Nice work though, Cray. : D

And a Force System, so it's more clear and cut.

Wiki and Force. Or am I not allowed to be in the poll? :p

Wiki and Force, definately. In fact, I'll even volunteer to do the DT-IV page (I've already got it on the Fanon site, just need to change it around a bit).

There seems to be a lot of popular misconceptions in the DT unit... one being that they're EXACTLY like Spartans from Halo. :p

So, I'd suggest waiting on volunteering to do anything until you're sure about your information.

Also, we'd probably have to place a couple rules on it, because we'd like the Wiki to be a comprehensive database instead of being only IC stuff. But we'll cross the bridges when we come to them.

MAKE WIKI AND FORCE SYSTEM! *tries to use lightning* :p

I would say the Force system is the main thing on the list. Aside from that, please fix the PM system. I can't tell you how annoying it is to have someone PM you, only you don't know they did so because the indicator doesn't show up.

Well, I guess fixing PMs is important too... I just tend to forward things separately instead of all at once to get around the problem.

Wiki and an Issues tool upgrade.

You never disagreed with me when I explained to you that's how Brent set them up...now if that's suddenly changed then that would be news to me.

To be honest though, the IVs may have even surpassed the Spartans in some areas.

We need to reassess allot of background to things in this universe, get em looking all sharp and shiny rather than hackneyed! I push for a group of people to ensure a high standard is maintained in all entries.

No idea what Jabber is, and I'm rather disillusioned with the Force system, so I went for Wiki.

EDIT: Actually, with the OOC here, a Wiki might not be a great idea, at least, not in the conventional manner.

A Wiki would be so cool :) I like the idea of writing articles about aspects of VIII.

Well, the Jabber server was kind of something I was just thinking about in my daydreams. It's a distributed data model, like websites in general are, opposed to the single-server service that IMs like MSN and AIM are. It's sort of like IRC, but you can use it to talk to any Jabber server (and therefore user).

The only reason I'd be interested in it is to have real-time conversations between CMAC and members, and for those conversations to be logged on the server. Believe it or not, conversations containing important information over MSN usually get lost and vital things get forgotten.

But anyway, it seems about what I thought. Force system and the Wiki. Didn't expect such an overwhelming response for the Wiki, though. :D For those worried about the IC/OOC issue, we'll be planning to strictly enforce IC information, OOC information, and restricted information (for example, people revealing faction battleplans on a page as OOC information - that would not fly).

Mainly because that, in the past, whenever a wiki was mentioned on this board everyone started hissing and scratching their moniters in pain. :P

I think that the wiki should be used for historical purposes and character bios. That way we can keep out of the classified stuff that needs to stay in faction boards.

Could I get a little info on what the Issue Submission thing you're talking about it? I'm not exactly sure what the thing in the poll options means.

I think that the issues being submitted aren't getting to the people who are supposed to get it. I sent in a couple of rifle designs a few weeks ago and haven't heard anything about them.

I concur, CMAC should try to work out a better discussion schedule when it comes to issues.

Well, I've been dealing with finals and wrapping up the semester for the past few weeks, Han's been doing the same... Cray's got school and he's doing a huge site overhaul. So we'll get to issues when we get to them; of course, it helps if people don't feel the need to totally and completely forsake canon technology and make the biggest, baddest whatever the Universe has seen... until someone finds out and makes a bigger, badder one.

Not to mention most of the issues submitted are designs... I don't do designs anymore.

But anyway, these upgrades will have no affect on the other CMAC. So, I don't see the need for complaining that just because we're doing this means other things will be neglected, because it's untrue.

Anyway, back on topic, please.

if there was a wiki the admin can acutually lock pages so that only a certain group of people can edit them this will get rid of any problems that someone trying to cheat blah blah blah. Oh and always backup any page you do just in case somke random comes on the wiki and ruins it
