A couple changes will be occurring soon, and I just wanted to give you all some advance notice. First off, we will be merging Asylum, OOT and the FFXIV general forums in order to drive poster numbers up. We feel that these forums have a common thread that will result in a stronger community.

Next up, the karma system will be replaced by a “thank you” system, where you can show your gratitude to other posters for posting by “thanking” their posts. We would call it a “like” system, but we don’t want to get sued.

As an additional forum perk we are going to implement an avatar and title micro transaction change system. See someone in the forum without an avatar or a title? Now for $0.50, you can give them a title or an avatar of their very own! Will it be kittens? Maybe a picture of your dear aunt Ethyl? Whatever you desire. See an avatar you don’t like? For the same low fee, change it to something you like much better! People with premium membership of course would be able to change their own avatars or titles back after you change them. The proceeds to this exciting new system will go towards the purchase of a new forum server!

And finally, in order to increase our coverage of the forums, we are planning on giving anyone with over 1,000 posts limited admin powers to increase the speed at which spammers and the like are removed. Nothing major, just temp mutes and nukes, etc. Maybe the karma reset to 3.00 button. You know, the usual.

If anyone has any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to share them here!

We're still looking into the feasability of that. For the moment, we are thinking of a paid post transfer from thread to thread inside the same forum might be easier to implement without all the pesky admin rights checks, etc.

Can we beta it in the Asylum/oot/ffwhateverxiixi forum?

I know I'd pay fifty cents to start forcing pony avatars to resistant posters. Jus' sayin'.

no this

Last social network I created for a client, every single alpha test image was that guy, or a honey badger.

Could not demo the site for anyone without laughing.
