Grey knights forum news announcement.

Post by Klomster on Mon Apr 01, 2013 8:13 am

Hello fellow grey knight forum dwellers.

I am Klomster, most of you will know me from.... well, this forum Very Happy

Me and Inquisitor Lord has been doing some new stuff for the forum and are implementing the changes as soon as possible, i just wanted to share the changelog with you, the honored brothers of the forum first hand!


* Main design changes.
-A new innovative feature created by forumotion, known as "Insta-click" will be implemented. This will allow the user to go to any part of the forum with just a single click.

-New art selection feature. The logotypes, smilies, the main site top image and many other images will be linked to your facebook account. If you lack a facebook account, that doesn't matter since it will also be linked to your email, sensing your most preferred searches, favorites and likes accross all the sites you usually visit, and create a custom grey knights forum for each and every member. With custom art chosen from your own preferences.

-The forum index will also be overhauled. And only show the most important sections. Since you will be able to go anywhere on the site with "insta-click" they will not be needed giving you and us a super slim front page design with easy access without many confusing choices.

-The FAQ, Memberlist and Usergroups tabs will be removed. On popular demand since they are deemed unnescesary.

*User control changes.
-To make each and every member a more indivuídual and outstanding member. All avatars will also be implemented with the art selection feature. Making your avatars be chosen from your internet history automatically. We will all see what makes each and every one of us who we are by being shown at all times what every member mostly searches for on the internet. The avatar customised in real time to show what this member is currently searching the most for. There will also be a secondary smaller avatar which shows what you are searching for right now! So we can all become a better, more friendly community!

-New password protection. This is to improve your grey knights forum experience, by giving you an even greater sense of safety while browsing our boards. A primary feature of this will be an automatic password reset with passwords generated by a specifically designed computer that Inquisitor Lord has purchased with the donations of some extremely generous members of this site. (We thank you again, we could not do it without you.) This computer will automatically generate a new password for you every fifteen minutes, which will be sent to your email. Also you will have to insert your password every 2 hours while visiting the site. To improve safety, and make you feel safer.
Sadly this means that the automatic login feature will be removed, since it was a safety hazard.

-A new foul language detector plugin on the grey knights forum data-base will be installed. Sensing when a user is typing something inappropiate, something foul or simply spam. Automatically kicking and banning users who doesn't abide by the language rules of the site. This is also to help relieve some of the workload of our hard working admins and moderators.

*Other noteable features addons.
-A bigger and more noteable donation button will be added. Since a lot of members have been complaining about it being hard to spot.

-Likewise a bigger font will be implemented. For the repeated problems we've had with people hard of seeing. The new font will be roughly ten to twelve times LARGER! For better ease of access!

-All cats will be removed.

-Facebook will be fully implemented in the forum, and will automatically like all threads you reply to.

-Also, all members on this site will be added as friends automatically on your facebook account. Again, if you lack an account you will be sent emails telling you what they are up to right now! So you are allways up to date on your favorite grey knights forum brethren!

-New cats will be implemented.

-Google Nose Beta will be fully implemented. So you can smell all your grey knights brethren in real time.

-Fully automated voice command will also be implemented.

-Serverside cleanup. Removing unpopular threads and providing a smoother forum experience.


That's all guys. I cannot deny that me and Inquisitor Lord is super pepped about this new release, and i hope you will be as well. We have worked a lot on this update of the forums and of course have done so for your sake. Our beloved brethren and users!

So have a beutiful spring this April, and have a great time! Very Happy We will be seeing you around as usual!

Those are a lot of changes Brother Administrators. Thank you for all of your hard work! I am excited and nervous to see the results of your labour. Change is not my strong suit.

I am having a hard time visualizing what all of this is going to look like right now, but I am sure it will be great when implemented.

I am a little concerned about having my e-mail and FB accounts bombed with notifications every time someone posts. Is this a feature that can be turned off?

Also, the avatar piece confuses me scratch I am hoping that we can keep our existing avatars, and not have them randomly changing depending on our activity.....

We will need to ensure that we are communicating effectively with one another during and after this transition so that we can make it as smooth as possible.

One note to all: Be prepared for your rank/post count to drop if threads are bing cleansed.

Can't wait for the nose beta and new cats to be installed!!! I have a feeling that Brother Klomster and his stormtroopers may have personally programmed that feature Wink Razz

Indeed brother constantine.

Me and my stormtroopers (correction, BURNING stormtroopers) have been working really hard to bring you this awesome new update.

And sadly, the notifications can't be turned off.

I mean come on, we can't let people be left out from the comradery the feature is designed to bring the forum.

And don't worry Souba, all features will still work without a facebook account.

Mmm I like the idea of linking FB with the forum, but I'm worried about the options and settings we could work with. Some people like privacy and some are closet gamers. Plus we don't want our news feed or friends' news feed being blown up with forum talk and actions. I could understand that automatically adding everyone as friends seems like a good idea, but I'm not completely sure about it. Instead of banning foul language can't you just add a censorship feature which people can toggle on or off and set all profanity to be just ****? And I'm very sad about the cats. D:

Another thing I like about this forum is the front page (without the /home to the URL). There on the left hand side is the scrolling thing where those are the topics I actually look at. Sometimes that bugs out on me and I have to wait for it to re-scroll to the next topic or it just freezes. You could expand on that area so we could answer any new thread questions. Also by clicking the "home" button it could take us there instead. But keep up the innovative ideas!

As I said before, we will need to ensure that we communicate well when the changes come. Until then there is not much that can be addressed.

Yo again fellas Very Happy

For all out there seeing these posts. It's just something a drew up from behind my back since i saw lots of places making fun april fools jokes.

So if it isn't obvious, Aprils fools guys Razz

Indeed brother Constantine, it was fun seeing you sort of believing the update (even with its super wacky things.)

Needless to say, every thing i wrote as a change is something i would vote STRONGLY against.

Think about it for a sec.

All the pictures on the site changing depending on what you've searched for lately, the text so large it basically fills the screen with each letter. And small avatars showing what everyone is doing in real time.
Yes, this includes porn Razz

If you have facebook, your friendlist will instantly be upped to like 1500 or however many we are now, and it will be filled with updates. Not to mention automatically liking everything you respond to.
But this is not nearly as bad as if you don't have an account.
Every action by every member is sent to every user via email....... plus the password updates every 15 minutes and the disability to log on automatically.

This would fill up you inbox so fast, not even the speed of sound could compare. And of course with no way to turn anything off Twisted Evil

Luckily, i'm just messing with you Razz

The site will stay like this for quite some time, and as far as i know there is no plans for any major (or smaller....) updates in the near future regarding to the way the site is run.

So i hope it was entertaining, and be calm, nothing of what has been mentioned will be implemented. If you actually want something to be implemented i would one: Evaluate your sanity and two, consider the idea.

Needless to say some ideas are madder than others, but all in all, yes, i will not remove the cats. Nor will i replace them. The cats will be fine! Very Happy

So cya around guys!

The start of it was believable then as you ran out of sensible ideas they became a little obvious but remained very amusing. Congrats :-)
