PostSubject: Enjin forum discussion   2013-07-27, 22:17

So today I tried out the "Enjin forums" which are specifically dedicated to gaming.

I've already had some past experience with these forums and I can't imagine why I haven't thought about this earlier. This will solve some of the issues we're currently having with design and stability. Giving me the ability to personally support membership payment for possible future features.

The advantages

Character & Game integration
Import & keep your guild characters and ranks synced with various game armories.
Mobile Website
You can browse and access the website anytime, anywhere and from any mobile device
Improved Chat system
No more random logout after a certain time of inactivity, and accessible from mobile devices.

Possibility on future features

10(+) user supported teamspeak or Mumble
Our own possible voice chat server for group chatting. Teamspeak could even have website integration!
Gallery & Showcase
Sounds like just another great way we could share those great moments and screenshots.
Merchandise shopping system
I'll be honest, this one I might not be entirely sure if we need it. Linkshell merchandise?

The future features are subscription based. And I've let out some of the more technical yada blabla. But I'll gladly answer any further questions or involve into discussions on whether this might be a good idea to change websites to. Since this is more professional to show off and possibly advertise in the linkshell forums for future members and growth. And just generally feels more slick to use.

Please let me hear your thoughts!

This is in no way final, suggestions and feedback are welcomed. And this came after Konata posted a link to a "Moogle" realm based mIRC chat server where I got to chatting about a future of possibly Enjin/Guildworks;

You can enter the chat by going to: Quakenet Webchat

Yes to Mumble. One of the sites me and momo checked out had it integrated. How much is 20 seats out of interest?

Mumble is still a standalone voice server on Enjin it seems, not too sure. €/$23.95 per month will upgrade to the "ULTIMATE" package which includes a 50 User Mumble server. 25 Teamspeak.

But you should be able to buy extra seats separately, I'm just trying to see which might be easiest to use for everyone mostly. And this could add to the donation portion of the website, where everyone can help update for the addition features + voice server use.

7.95 for "Advance" package which is for 10 User server.

Was checking out here earlier in the day as one of the sites me and Momo looked at had it. Nice to see it's still cheaper than vent.

Aah, that could definitely be a consideration in terms of mumble.
As for forum solutions, Enjin seems a great way to go. Multiplay seems more dedicated to private server hosting.

Appearantly these are the prices of User upgrades on Mumble through Enjin.
10 User - $2.50 p/m
15 User - $3.75 p/m
25 User - $6.25 p/m
50 User - $12.50 p/m
100 User - $25.00 p/m
150 User - $37.50 p/m

I think these are "Added" user seats to the already base given amount of seats coming with the Enjin package.

*Edit* It has Enjin user integration. Though it seems Enjin only because it uses your member information on the enjin server.

Well, I just registered, browsed it a little bit and I have to say things look nice. Good to see the way ARR is a part of it, specially the news feed on the homepage. The font is good, clear and nice on the eyes, don't need my glasses to read it. The background and all is oke too. All in all, with the events and the calender, looks pretty good. I checked it on my phone too and that is better than this one, much more straight forward.

@Mamami - That certainly does look nice and easy to use for everyone. <3

@Konata - The front page posts aren't forum based, it's a completely different module. I'll have to take a look into the moderator/tag system and permissions. I think it'd be nice to split it up in people who can look over the order of the forums, and those that can create and modify special features like the front page.

@Momo - Can it be cats instead? I prefer cats o.o

Caelia - Yeah, I added the current XIV rss feed on the front page. I would love to add Yoshi's posts in a special feed, but it seems that's impossible. But likely it will also update the character progression information on the website in the future.

The design is nice and crisp, simple and easy to understand without having to search for ages. Which I think is very important. It's fun to create a personal touch and all when we're in a small group as it is currently, but if we will have more nice and awesome people joining in the future it's important we don't need to give personal explanations to every single member or have unnecessary sticky's clutter the boards to make sure everyone understands.

Maybe some simple groundrules and stuff, but otherwise it's best if the forum portrays its uses in a natural way.

@Mao - I would love to hear your opinion on a switch over to the enjin boards. I've been crafting and designing on it a bit, but it wasn't necessarily my intention to have everyone join without some discussion, hence this topic.

We've got everyone together here, and it'd be a bit of work to transition everyone if they'll all agree. And it would certainly open up possible future features that could be nice for the social aspects. Plus it doesn't need as much work creating a basic forum, cause as it stands now it should already have a good base to run itself so people don't need to mess around too much on it. Including myself.

Sounds like a good idea to me, Mao. That way we have time to see how everything will work
on enjin, and start fresh at release! :-)

Looks great......wait a min... how did I end up at Carrotknights website?

I suggest we move a bit before phase 4 since I don't think we can resist to play than moving threads over to new homepage.
