Isn't that what this is for: http://tarnished-coast.com/forum/index.php?/topic/810-general-forum-starting-guide/ ? To me the sections are pretty self explanatory for guilds and what's offered in wvw via pinned threads, like in the citadel and the new player/admin/transfer section where the above link is from.
In the Members roster list, on the other two sites you could go to the Members list and click 'new content' and it'd show the new members, not the new threads. Also, there is no advanced search if I want to look for an account id or guild or anything ..that I saw at least.
We do need 5 registered people on mumble with a [STRM] tag before a guild channel can be created. Once on mumble, if you go to the site the TC Bot sends you in the chat you can request a guild channel there as well. Are you asking for the mumble information to post to your guild or...? address:22.214.171.124 port: 50388 pw: forthetoast From the TC Bot link you can also change your name to reflect your STRM tag as well Right now it's [-]
YESSSS I miss having people to PvP with consistently </3 Very enthusiastic; can confirm later... Leagues...of Legend? Cause that's what the Stronghold is >.> Teams...really vary. At least one bunker of any class is nice. I've seen necros, d/d eles, guardians, engis, wars, and mesmers (beta Chrono) even hold a point as a bunker. Thieves aren't the best at it because of all the stealth and if they can stab someone down quick enough to hold a point, they would be more helpful in other group fights than in one place (maybe 'bunk' mid then?) I've gone in with all mesmers on a team, all necros, all rangers, all engis, and all thieves xp It was fun. We won most of them, but then again I've played against those teams and they fail against a mixed group. Being in comms is very helpful for quick information (quick needed more than in WvW) or if you play enough with a person you know their style and what they can do - how to play off them.
Since I uploaded the picture of Zingkaro (necro) to ODIN's Necro Night thread, anytime I edit a post it pops up at the bottom unsummoned. Even if I click the trash can icon delete it doesn't go away and is inserted automatically when clicking Edit. To get it to go away I have to click Submit on the edit (because it doesn't appear in the first edit) then click edit a second time for it to show up and then backspace it out. If I backspace it out and then click the trash can to get it to go away in the uploaded images, it adds it back in.
What I would like the War Council/TZ Leaders to focus on is research the changes to WvW and make goals and events geared towards that.
The idea behind the Guild Roundtable and WC is or should be different. WC is specific to WvW and for plans and thoughts about the week and moving forward in a more serious and proactive thread. The Guild Roundtable, to my understanding, is for all guild events, their approaches to things (such as GIF does defense by X,Y,Z actions), guilds working with guilds for a day or week, open to everyone. It's guild oriented so why shouldn't members of the guild be allowed to post and only the GL? If it's locked it might as well be another WC and that's redundant of people who would be posting and have information posted that is fine to be seen by verified. Something I think Gos mentioned about was we could treat the Guild section as an 'LFG' as well - which I think is a great use of that place getting to know each others' likes outside of WvW and any open guild events. Is there a way to make sections transparent/read-only? That was huge for many people in their posting on forthetoast and the request should be respected. I do understand some things don't need to be seen by public such as when a heated situation comes up in game and makes it to the WC of 'handle this person!' it's better the public not see that until it's taken care of. However I do think something needs said publicly afterwards about what happened so members know the WC is doing stuff and how. EVEN! If WC isn't 'read-only' have a once a week post of what happened the past week in summary or bullet point or..some sort of post. -memories of the Tarnished Coast Times online newspaper- and Yes, many in WC didn't ever contribute and just lurked - that's not being part of the WC. If we get that going again I'd like a requirement to have x posts a month (I know, more work for admins). That would mean the WC is actually active doing something (because there shouldn't be bs threads in there) and the members allowed access are active there as well. A vouch system Ches brought up could work if we're not limiting 2 per guild anymore - but I do think 2 per guild worked well and preventing any possible 'circle jerking' of an idea or opinion...by those who were there as guild reps anyways. Something else for the WC, not on the topic of vouching, but I liked having deadlines on topics like the voting had. It kept topics going in term of progressing and allowed enough time for people paying attention to post. If the discussion needs more time then of course extend it another week, but really nothing exceed 3 weeks - in my opinion - because by then new problems have come up or to whatever happened, a response would be very delayed and not meaningful.
Defense has forever been a problem and something we were told will be needed more of in the new maps. I've talked to several other commanders/guild leaders and will be doing a defense night (or two) soon --figuring out work schedules before a date can be thrown around and set.
Edit: I do think the Guild Roundtables and the subforums 'TC Events' and 'Public Events' are pretty similar.. I went to post something in the Roundtables, but felt it's too similar to something I'd post in the TC Events. Could the subforums be moved to the Roundtable instead? At least the TC Events, I know the Public Events is in the Great Hall for.. the public to see, not just verified.
One thing I noticed too was it said 'Goseldt has posted - show post' or something along those lines. I clicked it, and nothing. I had to refresh to see her post. I did notice the Recent topics do not update with new posts, but take a while to be added.
