Community UpdatesOkie lovely people - I'm going to try and maintain a monthly update on things which are happening - there'll be info and some statistics etc.
Massive thanks to Tech Guy for his anti-bot script! It means that we (seem to) have stopped the bots that were getting through. This means that our analytics data is meaningful (or more meaningful) - so we're going to try and keep up our daily voting on RPGFix ( here ) and TopRP Sites ( here ) up for a few months. At that point, we'll be able to see if voting there makes a difference to people finding the site.
Please do vote daily - mods will be giving reminders in chats and - if we hit milestones in November, there'll be some rewards next month!
Threads & Reviews
Sometimes, it's easy to get so focused on our own individual stuff that the big picture gets lost.
So - going on my own timezone - the first review request in October was this one - it's for The Long Moo: An Oram Mednix Mystery .
Since that review request, we've had 96 threads put up for review, up to this one by Kalortah, who's had his portrait painted. Our reviewers are amazing and there are only 4 threads waiting for review.
Of course, this number doesn't include any moderated thread reviews etc.
We've answered & closed 63 PSF tickets in October.
Our Wiki Workers work really hard behind the scenes - they've uploaded Dragons, dealt with a load of character wikis, put events up on the wiki and have been fundamental in keeping records up to date. The Global is up on the Wiki thanks to them!
We made a change to the Skill: Teaching to actually make a difference to learning.
We also simplified Startup and gave some XP and knowledge to existing PCs!
What We Are Working On!
Currently, we're working on the following:
- Giving feedback for Dragon Effigies - they're written, but they're still in the feedback process. This is being headed up by Basilisk.
- Darius is leading on trying to streamline the languages we have on Idalos - on giving them descriptions and so on.
- We're working on simplifying the Shoppe - on making 1 page per Wealth Tier that gives you an overview of that Tier, and the Shoppe only being for buying things outside your Tier.
- Munchkin is working on Sovereign - this is in the feedback stage and is nearly ready to go!
Best to all
