Forum Review 1st April 2017

Posted (edited)

Greets.

So we'll continue with these forum reviews until they become irrelevant or you all get bored. I briefly toyed with doing an April Fool's Special but this is a mature forum, right? So with all the excitement of the various issues in February, March returns us to quieter, cultural backwater times. Which is no bad thing considering that the next few months are likely to see the server being accurately promoted giving us a different kind of headache.

So without much fanfare here are the current forum stats:

So the placeholders are people who come here create a name and then....nothing. It may well be that they are lurking with intent. Quite a lot of them have come out of the woodwork recently forced to comment and support the server and its ideals. Primarily though, people put in this placeholder so they can actually peruse the forums, and to a lesser degree, reserve a name in case they need to communicate on the forums lest something odd happens like a server launch.

The avatars are people who not only registered their nicks on the forums but went to the trouble of uploading an avatar too. This deserves some extra credit as it indicates a desire to really push the boundaries out, because before we know it, you'll actually be..

Posting something useful and witty. Or maybe useless and shitposting. If you've actually read this far and haven't fallen asleep, you might consider as a placeholder or avatar of just giving the rest of us a cursory introduction in the introductions section. We're a right friendly bunch here and we welcome all sorts.

The staff numbers have increased enormously since the last batch of beta testers were approved and launched to break things. As always, we consider beta testers to be staff in terms of representing Crestfall on any social media platform.

So not surprisingly, a large fall-off in new members, however, one thing I notice is that a lot of the new members start posting straight away and quickly become part of the community. More of the same.

I was really expecting some sort of a silly announcement from the staff. Like getting shut down or everyone quitting. Sad times.

I'm too fragile for that. Don't trigger me!

I find it amazing how the staff numbers are always rising on Crestfall, getting more devs and CMs, such as yourself. Hopefully Crestfall will continue to rise, gains traction, and becomes the de facto standard server of the Private server scene.

Edit: See Elicas's post bellow as well.

Nearly all the staff rises come from the fact Outstanding counts beta testers as staff, regardless of the facts. 2 new staff members joined, Drzej the dev and Outstanding the CM.

While people may say we 'represent' CF, fact is, beta testers are not staff, and we are not affiliated with the project beyond testing and making reports.

Don't worry, I understand that, perhaps I should've been more clear, and it was Drzej and Outstanding to which I was referring to.

Proud of shitposting here. Make some witty forums but is just an effort to keep activity in the servers. 

Hopefully I'm helping in the cause.

Elicas and I have completely differing perspectives on what constitutes staff. Which is fine, we disagree on balance druids too. We are both right, just depends where you are coming from.

Unfortunately there is nothing to disagree on balance druids, that's the shittiest druid spec, point blank and period.

We didn't even get an email that we're banned.

Darkrasp and Outstanding had a disagreement over some critical issues with the fishing mechanics. It turned into a heated argument with yelling, and they stepped into the server closet to "discuss things in private." The argument got worse and could be heard across the whole floor of the Crestfall Official Offices.

It eventually came to blows, and in the cramped server closet they managed to knock over a 40U rack of servers and networking equipment during the fight. Darkrasp and Outstanding have both been removed from the Crestfall team. The servers were on lease, not actually owned by Crestfall.

We are currently running a donation drive with a goal of $17,000.00 to cover the costs of the damaged servers to the leasing company. This also covers the cost of new equipment that needs to be bought out of pocket since the leasing company no longer wishes to do business with us.

Show your community support with a donation today! All members donating more than $1,000 will receive their choice of Collector's Edition pets (zergling, panda, or mini Diablo).
