Duuude, I'd love to do an entire Secret Santa thing for the entire forums. It sounds like a lot of fun-- plus being able to give things digitally like your list would be cool. I think we can pull it off! We'd just have to get a good list of participants going and find a way to match everyone up (probably like a randomizer or pull names from a hat.) Do you think it's still too early to do a poll & see who's interested?

Not at all! My discords are already getting up the interest lists and the various adoptable sites are already dusting off their threads. I think if we do an interest check now it might be a good plan to get everyone in the spirit and start thinking up some stuff. Also I think it might be really awesome in case some others can add to my list before the holidays, just so people who aren't artists or writers aren't panicking at the last minute. As it is, I think roughly if we do an interest check now then people will have about a month and 2 weeks to mull over gift ideas and some fraction of that to actually stalk their giftee's posts to try and figure out what they like.
I'll start an interest check either tonight or later this week. I currently have 2 projects going (working on the 1st right now), so I'm hoping they won't last over 3-4 days. Sounds good to me! Also, seeing that PB's poll/survey thing is useless asf, I'll probably link to an off-site one either through Google or some other poll site. I don't wanna flood members with threads.

Good luck on your projects! Hope they go well!
Pfft. Yeah, Google would probably work best since you can input things. Only other one I know is Strawpoll. But yeah ... Proboards killed the polls. I've been trying to do a poll story for ages and it's 10xs harder thanks to ProBoards.

Not that I can think of! Sounds like all the questions that are needed for the time being. Maybe an 'extra comments' section in case anything else turns up? Or maybe just leave that to the main topic to do.
Trying to do the form for the Secret Santa Event.. not sure what to include other than what people are interested in & things they would find either unsettling or triggering. Is that good enough or am I missing something?
It looks like WCC is locked or so it says at the bottom of the page. I'm not sure why it's locked but it won't allow me to create an account and try to affiliate with them. Gonna try WCO and see if they're open to an official affiliation thing. originally I was just posting on a thread but might as well go a step further and see.
I try to poke around but I get distracted easily and forget to do things that should be done. Ooops.

True! I'd possibly make it less the main feature and more off to the side? And maybe a font that resembles that on the Warrior books? That's just what I think might be cool, hey hey. I'm just one opinion.

I dropped off the face of the earth. Very whoops.
Hum. On the one hand, the top looks cute. On the other hand, the bottom is a classic. I'm leaning toward the bottom? Since as you said the nostalgia of the old forums is a very big "selling point" on our end. Plus it's a classic header. Wonder if there's a way to incorporate them both at all. But it would probably be a bit too busy.
Off topic but like some of these sites have such pretty coding that it makes me wanna cry with joy.
liesinthelow.jcink.net/ - this reminds me to make an affiliate thread fiveclansfate.proboards.com/ - they also affiliate warriorcatsarpg.com/ - last advertisement on their ad thread was oct. 10, so it could be worth a shot? it's been almost 2 mos. since then though. warriorcatclans2.freeforums.net/ - complicated navigation system. gonna say no to this one for now.
Discord -- If Roswell is up to it, we could always see if we could get our server out into the open thru disboard. I don't have much "control" on the discord besides basic things iirc.
TheSacredLight - most of their ads are Discord server related but could check & see if they allow web ones. It's also kinda dead... QuietHollow - the only way to get in requires creating a character and a bunch of steps. I could always contact them via DA and see if they'll respond. People have asked if they're still accepting and I don't see any responses (then again, I'm not logged into DA right now.) Overflow rp - Last post on their Discord to what they allow a guest to see was Oct. 21, 2019. They have 8 members. Worth it? Ehh.

Honestly, I was looking through these and they seemed interesting, so I'm glad a lot of them seem worth a shot. Possibly advertising through Disboards could be worth a shot. But I also noticed some discords which are just Warriors related. Might allow ads or promotions, but I'm not sure and would have to check on some which I found.
Yesssss. So many with beautiful coding! I may look through Discords later this month perhaps, huuuuum.

I was looking through those sites I linked and apparently one has a similar topic to this one! And they have some ideas I hadn't thought of (and that I can do, ha ha)! So I'll repeat them in a bit. Really busy today. This is just a note to self.
Post by mintedstar/fur on Dec 15, 2019 7:06:34 GMT -5
Me: I'll post Also me: Aaaaaaaaaah what's motivation I'll just do the idea without ever saying it.
Gotcha, so another thing that this site tossed around was promoting on tumblr. Apparently they had/have a promotional tumblr page. Just saying what they have, not suggesting just stating. But I did like one users suggestion of writing short stories based off popular RPs/Fan Clans and posting them to various writing sites with a link back as credit. AKA 'Inspired by the ____ Clan at ____'. Which ... functions as credit and less as advertisement to my mind. They suggested AO3, which I could totally do ... if I was a member of any clans. But I CAN do it for some OTRPs (with permission, even though I do have some of my own RPs. :3 )
And there was another thing but I need to go back and look into that.
Any verdict on the mini forum-wide event? Sand Sorry to bug you, I was just curious.

Sol: I think Wolvden is a computer game where you survive as a wolf
Oct 19, 2020 16:12:48 GMT -5
~Ƈαммι-`ღ´-: Wolvden is a new site that's sort of an RPG/virtual pet/breeding, browser-based game.
Oct 19, 2020 18:09:08 GMT -5
~Ƈαммι-`ღ´-: WolfQuest is the other wolf game I've mentioned that's actually animated XD
Oct 19, 2020 18:09:36 GMT -5
Rosemary: Yeah, I used to play WolfQuest! Imma start again. And I made an account on Wolvden and it's really fun lol.
Oct 19, 2020 18:18:08 GMT -5
~Ƈαммι-`ღ´-: WolfQuest has had a whole awesome revamp since it’s 10-year anniversary in ‘17 so although it now needs to be purchased it’s worth it.
Oct 19, 2020 18:52:31 GMT -5
queenbeast: I really want to play the new version of Wolf Quest once it's officially released
Oct 20, 2020 12:00:31 GMT -5
~Ƈαммι-`ღ´-: You mean 3.0 (anniversary edition)? It’s available! If you purchased 2.7 then you should be able to get a free download of 3.0. If not it’s purchasable on Steam. Multiplayer for 3.0 recently became available which I’ve been enjoying
Oct 20, 2020 12:38:15 GMT -5
queenbeast: Oh sweet thank you for letting me know!
Oct 20, 2020 13:27:18 GMT -5
Rosemary: How much is it on mobile?
Oct 20, 2020 13:35:00 GMT -5
Rosemary: When I used to play it, it was free, but idk about now.
Oct 20, 2020 13:35:35 GMT -5
~Ƈαммι-`ღ´-: $15 via Steam or itch.io
Oct 20, 2020 13:47:44 GMT -5
Rosemary: Oh, thanks!
Oct 20, 2020 13:52:14 GMT -5
--яєɗ яαᴠєη: That’s for the desktop version right? Do you know how much it is on iOS?
Oct 20, 2020 20:11:14 GMT -5
Darkriver13: Have a happy day people of the shoutbox!
Oct 20, 2020 22:52:42 GMT -5
~Ƈαммι-`ღ´-: --яєɗ яαᴠєη The mobile version is only up to 2.7 at this time and won’t be revamped until their currently planned work (they’re still working on redoing Slough Creek and the Lost River map as well as planning a 3rd chapter) is done for computer versions...
Oct 20, 2020 23:10:41 GMT -5
~Ƈαммι-`ღ´-: That being said, on 2.7 mobile, the full game and additional wolf customizations are in-app purchases and respectively $4 and $5.
