About those ratings - to quote Allakhazam in the original Forum FAQ post:

Quote:
One thing I want to emphasize is the Karma system. If people start to use it, it should solve many of the complaints I see about anon posting. If you have received Scholar status of higher, you in effect become a limited forum admin. Please take advantage of this.

As you read through a thread, rate the best posts up and the worst posts down. Then when you get to the end, hit the rate posts button to enter your ratings. It only takes a couple people rating through a thread like that to move the dumb posts below the default viewing threshold and move the better posts up, which will eventually make those making the good posts able to rate as well.

Now just make sure you have your filter settings at "default" and not at "Never Filter". The default filter means that when you are on the main thread page, any thread where the lead is below 1.5 isn't even listed, and within a thread any post below that rating also disappears. If you choose to set your filter to "Never Filter", then I have to assume you want to see those types of posts.

We do moderate the forum as well, but only to get rid of the most outrageous posts. If people want to carry on a below the threshold flame war, then we won't interfere until it becomes indecent.

How about a "What's changed in EQ since you left." feature.

The user could put in the approximate date they left EQ, and it would spit out what's changed. I swear we see 85000 threads a day asking "What's changed in EQ", "How's the server population?", "Is it worth coming back?"

I figure you could just randomly spit out server populations and a magic-8-ball style randomizer for the "Is it worth coming back" question.

Just a thought to save the servers. I'm only thinking of the servers here.

And then I immediately hit them with this:

If too many (like... two...) are posted within a short time frame, one or more tend to get nuked.

If you like playing EQ, may I suggest that the "coming back to EQ" threads, while annoying, are exactly what you want to see. Because it is an indication of the games longevity being extended.

Could be solved by a sticky thread at the top of the forum which bullet points the main changes for each expansion.

Well volunteered Frakkor. Chop chop.

how about a link to a forum tutorial? i've been reading the forum for awhile now and there are still some things i cant figure out...like is there a way to mark messages as read? or to float a specific thread for yourself? (both are on most other forums and bookmarking threads is a great idea)

I have an idea to add here.
Many people ask in the game...what are levels for faction (IE Katta) step by step with the best being Ally.
I know that somewhere on this board there is a link to this, but after playing for almost 8 years, I dont remember. Is it possible to add a link to the levels of faction from worse to best?
Thanks,
Laini

I just tried to add some wiki template links to a beastiary page and the only parameter it took was the Type.

The format I used matches the others in place:

{{EQ|Type=Undead|Slow=Yes|Root=Yes|Summon=Yes}}

Not exactly that, but the same format. Every variation I try will only display the Type.

The article in question is Hilog Jarsath

I was looking for Bbot's old augment post, realized vwdiesel had done a bunch of work on this too... and then stumbled into the wiki.

Old alla users (the returning types) may not think to use the wiki.

So while Hotzone Wiki Page might make a good addition to the "Useful Threads" area, perhaps a link for the wikibase under site links would be good too?

The original post was just updated to reflect the last 6 years of comments more or less.

With the "Keys, Key quests and Flags up to PoP" thread now listed here there is a good chance (at some point) it becomes unstickied.

From my perspective there are some links listed here that don't rate "useful thread" status because they were originally put here for being the then-current endgame... example: Depths of Darkhollow progression. BUT... I want site user input please.

What do we want listed here (or taken out that currently is)? Feel free to post a link to a thread that you think should be here. If someone posts a good link please rate them up so we know the community agrees.

How do we want the information grouped (already getting a bit wall of textish with just "useful threads" and "site info" as the sorting rule)?

Lastly, at the end of this process shall I repost this as a "New 2015 version" so that there isn't dozens of replies spanning years?




I will let this sit for a few weeks and see what you all have to say. Thanks.

Edit: used the first 11 posts in this thread to overhaul the original post. Did not reboot the thread as it is currently not pages long in replies. That may be needed at some point in the future however.
