First of all, I'd like to preface this announcement by saying a big thank you to those who congratulated me and wished me well on the Administrator position, your support means everything to me! I am really looking forward to helping the community improve and thrive!

So, on to the meeting! In the past when we've done this, it was a really effective way to get things that mattered most to the community discussed in a timely manner, so here we are again! The current staff will be having a meeting on January 26th, to discuss a plethora of things relating to the forum and community. I will be going over the forum suggestions section and trying to find as many discussion topics as possible. However, if there is anything that immediately springs to mind, that you would like for the staff to discuss or look at, please share here. I will be locking the topic on Monday, the 25th, to prepare our meeting agenda :) Thank you in advance for your input, guys!


Kate

I think this is a more existential question for Neocodex in general: Since Neopets is pretty much a dying game, should the forum invest more efforts into diversifying into other games like Flight Rising? In any case, it would be optimal to have a program/cheat that is unique to Neocodex that provides a significant advantage in the game, like the coliseum bot. When Neopets dies, the existing community may stick together, but it will be harder to attract new members if Neocodex did not invest enough efforts to diversify.

Lowest of the low issue: Private members can't access the IRC chat page. Not like anyone even uses it.

I think the main issue is the lack of content creators i.e. programmers. We're already delving into games like Flight Rising and Kaylune, but there doesn't seem to be enough interest on the forum to coax more current users to contribute to the cheating cause or bring new people to the conquest. There's already a coli bot, but that surely can't be enough.

I will put this right here as a small reminder of what's important in the hearts of all Codexians.

I would love to see the "recent status update" wider like a newfeed style. It would be more interactive.

I have a limited background in programming and stuff. But I would love to dedicate more time to learning programming, and learning to spot glitches (which is half luck and half dedication). I was actually going to suggest an event like that hour of code thing from Codeacademy, to get people interested more in programming and whatnot. Admittedly though, I am anxious about being judged if I don't know enough or learn quickly enough. That's primarily why I haven't put myself out there yet.

Is codex ever going to shut down?

 

I've seen other neopets forums shut down and I know we're a little different but it's still on my mind

Hopefully not for a very long time :) We are always looking into ways to increase the longevity of Neocodex. The gaming forum was introduced for that reason, as it broadens our market and target audience, beyond just Neopets. If anyone has any ideas they'd like to share surrounding this, we are all ears. :p

I have another suggestion that I'm sure @DonValentino will back. One single sub section for writing in the arts/graphics section. That way we could include similar threads like the "draw every week" thread, or share poetry, microfics, short stories, etc. I'm sure there are other members here who like that.

If this happens, I will happily and consistently fill it up with amateur obscure fan fiction fueled by teenage angst (because apparently Mother Nature said "Fuck you. Stay in puberty forever" to me) and a history psychologically wounding childhood that may or may not include not getting a Hogwarts invitation via owl.

See, this is an excellent reason to implement my idea -- how will we live without @Kelvin's teenage angst-y fan fiction?

Not that is not a bad idea at all.  I reread this and wow, where was my head? That is not a bad idea at all. I would do it but I'm incapable of being a responsible, functioning adult.

 

And I hate my voice.

We'd get an episode out before deeming it too much work.

Just record the tinychat conversations and call it at podcast.

I'll write the dirtiest fanfic of codex members. Jkjkjk
I'd be too inappropriate and I'd have to sensor everything. So it'll be all blank. Best story.

This sounds fun though. Can we get people to read their blog entries?

I was curious if we could have a challenge section of the forum where we could challenge other people to games officially through codex.

Stuff like poker games where the loser has to change their username for the month, or signature etc. Fun, dumb stuff.

Codex has been through worse. Back when I joined, there were only like a dozen active posters but that didn't stop us. If Neopets dies, the strongest of us will stay and build the Codex of tomorrow or at least enjoy the peace.

 

Maybe we should have polls to vote for who we think will stay until the end. Would be fun to look back to regardless what happens (with few exceptions).

I'd be down for a podcast. We should have a pool of alternating speakers or just simply guest members or smthng
