    on the list...

    - make donator system using vB's subscription system and secondary groups. (done)
    - find good free graphics program, and make a page for the market that explains how to use said program to save images of items.
    - figure an easier way to add images to market posts. Currently you have to get image hosting and use an IMG tag.
    - bring back the shoutbox.
    - add color key to "Currently Active Users". (done)
    - add little character table to post info boxes (look left). (done)
    - redo group and title assignments. Special titles for donators, high rep users, etc. Relabel moderators that aren't playing WoW (are not officers). (done)

    Looking good, but quick question. How hard would it be to make a pulldown menu for Server? Just on the characters page mind you since I don't think there is room for it on the left column?

    Nice, this will look really good when you are done. Just wondering, what host do most of you use to post pics? Free would be good. Thanks

    Both almost done. The donator page is here:

    http://www.mscclan.com/donate/

    ...but I am still testing the payment process, so you can't donate yet. The people on that page are old donators.

    And I still need to implement titles and markups for high rep users. The plan is to have titles like Respected Member and add a bold face to their username markups, like Username instead of Username.

    Donation system done. Payment processor tested:

    User CP -> Paid Subscriptions

    New Respected Member titles and markups done. I added a corresponding guild rank in the game. Instead of making the "Respected" status an automatic promotion based on reputation count, I will just manually promote people... it is very possible for people to be helpful in the game but not on the forums (no reputation count).

    Suggestion: put a link from the page that lists the donators to the donation subscription page.

    "Would you like to be as popular, good looking, and intelligent as these fine, upstanding citizens of our online community? Then click here.

    It wasn't on the list, but I just added profession fields to the member list. So go add your professions... NOW!

    :whip:

    edit: there was no room in the mini lists for professions, so I added that information as a mouseover effect

    Lately I am concerned about the "Respected" title. I am concerned that it has potential to cause drama. For example, some one might think they are less of a member because they are not "Respected".

    Haite and I have been tossing around other titles like "Venerated" and "Accomplished", but those adjectives have the same potential for drama. I want to recognize "good" members, but I want to do it in a way that won't make people feel excluded or unappreciated.

    The default title in the game is "Veteran", which I replaced with "Respected". Of course "Veteran" means that person has been with the guild for a while. The "Veteran" title has the advantage of being more neutral. However, it can't recognize new members who have been "good" because new members are too young to be "Veterans". Despite this, I am leaning towards going back to the "Veteran" title for its neutrality.

    If anyone has thoughts or opinions on this, by all means...

    You could apply terms used in some medieval guilds. For instance, apprentice, journeyman and then master. In this way, you could set certain milestone's that need to be accomplished in orde to attain certain titles, which should eliminate most drama. Just a thought.

    Are you trying to go more WoW oriented or more forum oriented. If you are going both then there will always be that place for drama. I think most of the people here act like adults though and can handle whatever you decide. I like the idea about the medieval names.
