Quick note.

Permissions are structured in a hierarchy. We can't have team 1 and team 2 have equal forum permissions and exclude each other from their forums. However, we can create groups that have private discussions.

We have 2 options.

1) Have general guild / class discussions open to all guild members and seperate out private discussion in the groups area.

2) Just have the forums open and have people use their discretion for posting and not post in other people's areas.

To better clarify:

The permission views are like this:

Officer
Team1
Team2
Team3
Members
Alliances
Guest

Team 1 would have access to team 1, 2, 3, members and etc
Team 2 would have access to team 2, 3, members and etc
Team 3 would have access to team 3, memmbers and etc

What I want to set up would be:

Officer
Top Secret Clearance
Security Clearance
Team Members
Members
Alliances
Guest

Members would have access to member areas and BS'ing threads.

Team members would have access to team threads... all team threads no getting around that. We would then use the "discussions" feature from the group link and add players to your group and discuss from there.

I think each team has a forum that the other teams can see and if for some reason the group discussion needs to be used then use that. If people respect the structure then it should not be a problem. Plus it would make it feel more like a guild than just a 10 man group.

I'm also editing view permissions for the general discussions.

We can have people join the forums and use them for general discussions but nothing for guild related stuff.

Well a couple things.

First the way the forums are set up you can't have permission groups with equal permission levels have seperate forums. If you are at the same permission level you can see everything they can see. You can set a permission level higher or lower. Higher means you can see what they can see plus shit you can see. Lower means they can see their stuff but not yours.

There is a feature called "Groups" not to be confused with the permissions groups I stated above. The "Groups" feature allows you to add forum members to a "Team" or "Group" as they call it and have specific discussion, wall post and members area. However, the group feature is a paid feature and not a free feature.

I also wanted to make note that some of the features we currently see will not be available in about 23 days and our site will have some ads on it.

List of paid the features:

  • Custom CSS
  • Event Signups
  • Videos
  • DKP
  • Groups
  • Journals
  • Progressions
  • Bank
  • Awards
  • Google Map
  • WoW Activity Feed
  • WoW 3D Character Models
  • Guild Ox Rankings
  • Game Character Data


Some of the features are neat like the Groups or the Character Data but, I don't think any of it is worth paying for. Just my 2 cents.

Wish you could just disable it now to see what it will look like...Not that it matters since this is 100 times better than the Thrall HnA page.

I am previewing a couple other sites. It looks like they just put a banner add between your header graphic and site content. I'm still looking.

Check them out here

You can't separate them out by paid or free sites so I"m literally clicking one at a time to find ads.

I have adblock enabled on firefox so I dont see them anyway.

I edited permissions to give guild members access to guild related information. I moved team members up in the hierarchy to give them access to the team forums. Once you get assigned to a team you'll be given access to the team forums section.

I'm adjusting people's permissions as I see them get logged into the site. There are some people that I know what team they are on and others I don't. I'm not just handing out team member permissions if I'm not sure where you are going to be at. I'm keeping in close contact with Agnew on that.

There are also some names that I don't recognize on the boards. Just bear with us while we get everything in order.

Two things:

1) I see you're doing permissions for groups and what not. I'm in Donnie's group for 10manning.

2) How much is the paid service?

I'm moving people into groups as they are requested.

If you are part of a team and do not see the team forums let me know and I'll move you accordingly.
