NOW IS THE TIME, IT SHALL BE YOU! :D In the past we have discussed this, but never really taken much extra thought to it. Now would be the perfect time to get it all put in place. I shall get the details for you and send them on through!

The perfect time was actually 6 months ago.

you can link multiple social media platforms now, so it's pretty easy to have one account and it would post the same info i.e twitter/fb

I'm old and out of the loop, sorry :p Thanks for pointing that out though! Would definitely make things easier.

Holy shit, where have I been all my life? Oh right, I don't use facebook anymore because I mainly use my school email and cell phone for "social media things." I have most of my professors' phone number which is not weird at all.

I know there are some hard feelings about shit not getting done when being brought up in the past.  Trust me, I feel you.  I've been there.  However!  Join me.  We'll make it better.

I've already mentioned half of these ideas multiple areas, to different members, in different sections.

Excuse me if I don't get my hopes up after the last few years of constant disappointment.

Yep, I'm with you.  Which is why I said fuck it, I'm not waiting anymore.  We have lots of people that want to see change, and lots of people that are capable of great things, but everyone's waiting around for staff/admins to institute it and being disappointed when it doesn't happen.  Fuck it.  Let's just do it.

Keep the apps coming, guys!

 

Remember, with enough people helping out, this will NOT be a major time commitment.  Let's get as many people involved as we can so we can spread the love around!

 

Those who are applying for team leader positions will need to dedicate a little more time to keeping tabs on how things are going on a regular basis, communicating with the rest of their team and other team leaders, etc.

Im all for this, +1 admin approves. Let's improve and let the forum GROW like it should be!


Will add suggestions etc later when I have more free time on my hands :p

 

Perpetual growth is inherently unsustainable, capitalist pig.

Well, even if it's just you and I, it will still not be a major time commitment. I have work, a 91 year old grandpa, and hours of wrestling to worry about.

He really gets squirmy when you milk his prostrate.

The only reason I know this is because he was talking about milking cats.

Just to clarify.

I understand the intention but I can't help but feel this is far too fragmented - a number of these roles are already filled without the need for a team badge, and I think we can probably merge some.

 

We could shrink the number of new teams down to 3 (from 6).

  • Content creators (regular contributors of guides, experts on various game subject matter, also encompassing the previous News Team role)
  • Graphic designers (aka graphics team)
  • Recruiting team (bringing new users to the forum)

... and keep the already established teams:

  • Programmers
  • Contest team 

 

I don't think we need to go into any finer detail, and we especially don't need a "newbie helper" or "greeters" team as these two roles are already filled. I don't remember the last time an intro thread went ignored, or a new member didn't get help when they needed it (usually from @Napiform -- which is a big reason she got the MOTM award). Other forums might need to force people to do these things, but our members are friendly enough to do it without being prompted. Instead of establishing a team, why don't we just have an award for greeting & helping out members new to the forum? 

 

The more teams we have the harder this is going to be to manage. I also feel "project managers" and "team leaders" can naturally emerge rather than being appointed from the very beginning. Let people earn the "team leader" role through putting in hard work and then proving they're up for the job.

 

Overall, I totally support a re-jigging of the groups and teams here at Codex and we've already proven we can do that with some success if you look at the Contest team and the hard work done over the last year. My only worry is that we won't have enough people with the relevant skill-sets to fill these roles, but I have no idea how many responses you've received thus far.

 

---

 

As far as programming goes, as you already know, we are currently stricken by the current administration and there are ongoing recent discussions about this. I hope that if we can re-form some kind of team of like-minded people who are interested in contributing to some interesting projects and we may actually be able to innovate some. This is where a number of the issues we're seeing stems from, most else are just symptoms. 

 

Many of you might not play Neopets anymore, but please do not underestimate the effect new programs and tools could have on a new era of Neocodex. Don't forget, it's the reason you all joined in the first place!

Hey, Dan.

Why don't you start an unofficial programming team?

Sorry, I'm useless.

I feel this way as well. I would be down possibly for the graphic designers, but at the same time.... I dunno that I could commit, nor keep up with some of the talent here xD
