  New Year's Party for everyone! Click for details.
Posted by: Arynis - 12-27-2011, 06:29 PM - Forum: Announcements & News - Replies (48)

New Year's Eve is coming up, and what better way to celebrate it than to party in the IRC channel and start the New Year with a bang?

Therefore, I hereby invite everyone in the Neo Ark Cradle IRC channel to spend the New Year's Eve together! Our first one together, even.

Server: DarkMyst
Channel: #neoarkcradle

If you are new to IRC or don't know how to connect, check out Kitten's excellent guide: <!-- l --><a class="postlink-local" href="http://neoarkcradle.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=593">viewtopic.php?f=1&t=593</a><!-- l -->

What can you expect:

The event lasts from roughly of the evening of the 31st until everyone passes out from exhaustion the next day. There's no fixed date; just enjoy yourselves.

Program yet to be decided apart from general chatting; check back for updates. If you have ideas or services to provide (e.g., streaming), please let us know in this thread!

Who's invited?

Like I said above, we welcome everyone! While we highly encourage our current members to join in, we don't mind guests or non-members to tag along, as long as you aren't around to cause trouble.

What are the rules?

The gist of the forum rules, basically. While we are more laid back and lenient about the rules in the IRC chat, the basics still apply. No attacking other people, no trolling, no causing trouble. Troublemakers will be booted out.

The channel will be moderated by myself, NeoArkadia and Geno. If you have any questions during the duration of the event, just send us a query on IRC. (Here's how to send a query.)

Anything else?

We can to keep the party fairly simple yet fun. Hope to see you guys around!

  FORUM RULES & POLICIES UPDATE (October 23)
Posted by: Arynis - 10-23-2011, 04:56 PM - Forum: Announcements & News - No Replies

After getting some feedback and having discussed a few things over at the Staff Forum, we have made a few clarifications to the current rules. Please take your time to familiarize yourself with the updates. To make things easier, I'm including the relevant parts that have been rewritten and updated, comparing the old rules with the new, rewritten versions, as well as an explanation for said changes.

The updates are highlighted below. If anyone has any feedback or questions to ask, please don't hesitate to do so in this thread or Private Message me or anyone else from the staff. We're here to make things run smoothly and all.

Policies and Guidelines: <!-- l --><a class="postlink-local" href="http://neoarkcradle.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=75&t=869">viewtopic.php?f=75&t=869</a><!-- l -->

Old Wrote:Posting Guidelines
Therefore, do not include more than 2 animated gifs in your post and do not link images directly that exceed either height or width in 1000 pixels and/or are bigger than 1 MiB.
New Wrote:Posting Guidelines
You cannot have more than 4 animated gifs in your post under any conditions. If you want to include more than 4 animated images, you must link to any further gif images rather than post them with IMG tags. Furthermore, if any individual image you post is bigger than 1 MiB AND/OR the image's width OR height exceeds 1000 pixels, you must link to said image rather than post them with the IMG tags.

We updated the posting guidelines as far as animated gifs are concerned, as well as rewrote the sentence regarding linking to images in case they exceed specific limits for clarification.

The original idea was to allow any numbers of animated gifs, but then it was suggested that given the size of an average gif, it would very easily lead to huge amounts of filesizes per post, especially if people go overboard with them. Therefore, we all agreed that a final limit of 4 animated gifs would be reasonable enough. This includes any kind of gif, whether it's an animated icon or a gif with bigger size dimensions. The reasons we are strict on limits like this is because there are people out there who have bandwidth limits, and while images may not be the biggest culprits in exceeding such limits (compared to watching a video online, for example), everything counts. So let's be considerate for those who may not have unlimited bandwidth, mkay?

General Forum Rules: <!-- l --><a class="postlink-local" href="http://neoarkcradle.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=75&t=870">viewtopic.php?f=75&t=870</a><!-- l -->

Old Wrote:Advertisements
Blatant advertising and spamming links to other sites or products is not allowed. Posts breaking this rule will be deleted, while spambots will have their accounts removed without question. Posting links to official websites and Wikis for educational or informational purposes are okay, so is advertising fan projects. However, please keep personal links in your forum signature or the website link in your profile.

Posting links to official websites and Wikis for educational or informational purposes are okay, so is advertising fan projects. Fan projects include group projects, artwork and fanfiction, and any project involving one or more people centered around the franchise not done for commercial purposes. However, please keep personal links in your forum signature or the website link in your profile.

A member asked me if fanfictions are okay to advertise, and thus we clarified what "fan projects" entail. Basically any project which centers around YGO (given that this is a YGO forum and all) and it doesn't involve you making money from it. The most that we'd allow is donations for equipment and resources, but nothing more. No selling stuff or anything like that. Take that elsewhere.

Old Wrote:Inappropriate Language and Profanity
We don't mind swearing or the occasional curse word, but that does not excuse excessive profanity in your post. Furthermore, racism and bigotry are forbidden and committing them will result in a warning and the offending post getting deleted.

Just a small clarification that homophobia isn't allowed either, except in a debate context. But yeah, no trashing homosexuals, homosexual fictional characters or homosexuality itself on this board, just to make that clear.

Posted by: Detective - 08-29-2011, 09:15 PM - Forum: Announcements & News - Replies (6)

For the next 12 hours or so, when we post something, if posted in a topic that existed BEFORE the move, chances are your post will show up in the middle of the thread.

Sorry about that, but it will fix itself in 12 hours or so and all threads will go back to normal. Meanwhile, you can keep posting without problems in new threads, and even old threads, just remember your post won't be listed as the newest because of the way the dates are setup.

Again, this problem will fix itself in 12 hours or so.

Thanks for your understanding.

  Hello everyone
Posted by: Detective - 08-29-2011, 05:07 PM - Forum: Announcements & News - Replies (66)

Welcome to the Neo Ark Craddle forum!

We have just finished the conversion, and everything looks nice. Shadow and I managed to get the conversion working properly after one or two minor hiccups, but tell us if you see anything strange in the forum.

We would like to ask you to please change your passwords, as the ones we gave you before were randomly generated and offer little security. Just use the user control panel to do so.

We'll be installing mods such as the reputation system soon, after we have all settled down for a bit.

As for the aesthetic side, we'll be installing new skins shortly. PHPBB3 demands us to upload the skins via ftp, so we'll need assistance from our system admin to do so. Before we bother him, I think we should decide what skins we want. We can have multiple themes installed in the forum. Right now, we have two skins that came with the installation and can be checked under user control panel.

You may suggest a skin in this very topic after checking the galleries here and here. Just post a link to the database so we can download it and load it up on the forum.

Don't worry, we'll be preparing a skin easier on the eyes as soon as possible.

I hope you enjoy your stay, and let us know how the conversion went!

Feel free to contact our staff with any of your concerns.

  The Super Awesome Sweet Banner Contest
Posted by: NeoArkadia - 08-21-2011, 12:23 AM - Forum: Announcements & News - Replies (73)

Okay. This is very simple. We're a growing forum community. Thus, we need a banner.

The Rules:
- Max Size is roughly... oh. 500~1000 width x 200~300 height.
- The art must include the Ark Cradle as the central visual image. You can add anything else in, but needs Ark Cradle, yo.
- No QUALITY:
[Image: janimerotationbannernoyamiyugiyugi.gif]

How it gets picked:
- It will be voted on by the whole community at some later date!

Go nuts, guys!
