Forum Changes: Ideas and Brainstorm

Post  Leonardo on Thu Aug 28, 2014 12:01 am

Before we start recording our adventures, there is a list of things we as a family need to take care of. I have opened this topic to officially record ideas that i will suggest, as well as take suggestions from the rest of you. So without further ado, here are my suggestions, hopefully you can help me improve them because i hope this to be a team effort:

1: Reduce forum content. Condensing old sections from our JK2 days into an all new "AoF Archives", making the forum easier to navigate. Updating our history. Cleaning up dead topics, etc.

2: Everyone will now have same forum rank. We are now all the same, the structure of a clan no longer applies to us, and potential fans we receive on youtube that visit the site need to see that we are all equal parts in a moving clock. Everyone gets admin. Alta retains lovability.

3: Create a joint Youtube channel that we can all access along with a separate email. This is so if one person is busy and cant upload a new video, anyone else can just by leaving it in the joint email. Password will be shared between members.

4: Give mcmonkey.org more exposure. Monkey does a lot for this community so its only right that he gets credit for basically everything. Fans will be able to use mcmonkey's site to play with us on minecraft, which should make for some interesting troll videos.

5: Social Media? Some of us are already on twitter, should we expand to facebook also? The youtube email will be used for this as well.

6: Create list of games we need to make videos in. This requires research unfortunately, we need to find out which games people want to see played in order to get more people visiting us.

Thats all i can think of as of now, please add suggestions or comments as you see fit, i'll add new proposals as we think of them. When we're done proposing, we'll hold a 2 day poll to ratify the new changes.

6: Create list of games we need to make videos in. This requires research unfortunately, we need to find out which games people want to see played in order to get more people visiting us.
Obvious initial set: minecraft, JK2, TOR. (Our home games). We could also do some for-fun side vids in games like L4D2 or Speedrunners. (as in, not a consistent series, just something we might record occasionally). I specify those two because some of us (me, prov, chos, nick) have been playing those a fair bit while teamspeaking and it's always epic fun.


3: Create a joint Youtube channel that we can all access along with a separate email. This is so if one person is busy and cant upload a new video, anyone else can just by leaving it in the joint email. Password will be shared between members.
I think we should limit the password to the channel to a few users who have reason to have it. Starting with: You, obviously (leading this ATM, you'll probably be recording). Me, probably (I'm tech master guy here ++ I'll probably record/edit videos sometimes), and alta because he gets access to everything.

2: Everyone will now have same forum rank. We are now all the same, the structure of a clan no longer applies to us, and potential fans we receive on youtube that visit the site need to see that we are all equal parts in a moving clock. Everyone gets admin. Alta retains lovability.
Please... do not give everyone admin. Too much damage done if we have trouble with a current or future member.

Cleaning up dead topics, etc.
What would that entail? Just locking them, or...?

4: Give mcmonkey.org more exposure. Monkey does a lot for this community so its only right that he gets credit for basically everything. Fans will be able to use mcmonkey's site to play with us on minecraft, which should make for some interesting troll videos.
And we can definitely use that site for... whatever is needed related to this. Basically, we have a full power webserver and can do with it as we wish. Anything from hosting a dynamic image to recreating our forums on it (which is pointless, I'm just saying it as an example of how far we could go). Any suggestions for things my site should do to help us out here are welcome.

Make sure you create a clan email also Alta, that is crucial to us sharing data.


I agree that we stick to lets plays in our home games, why stray from what we know? L4D2 is a good pick as well, sounds like i need to try speedrunners.


The all admin thing: I assume we trust the remaning members here so i for some reason am not worried about the forum being compromised. I can just restore it whenever anyway. Also this is something i forgot to explain: AoF is now a closed community, which means membership is now via invite only. The candidate must also be approved by all active members in order to officially join.


Youtube channel: For now we'll keep the access between Alta, monkey, and myself. Possibly add Vader and Prov eventually since they are always onboard and enjoy lets plays.

The dead topics will be locked, and stored within the AoF Archives along with all of our past activities, mostly to be viewed by visitors.

As for mcmonkey.org, i'm open to any suggestions/cool ideas it could be fully utilized for. I thought originally it could track us playing whatever game and fans could join us, but now i feel like it could be used for something more ambitious

If we want to get views, then playing a new game will increase the chances of people liking it and subscribing.
If we stick with our old games, not so much.

(Not sure if we'd be semi serious about this, or if this is just mostly for our enjoyment).

Hey I enjoy lets play too... but should you make it some sooner (in relation to time) D:
Tho I can rarely voicechat (so?) but at some points next week I might be able to.

The recorded videos could be placed on monkey's site..? Not just forums, Just idea

From the games you intend to play, for me counts MC and possibly JK2 too. But TOR/L4D2 surely not.

Approved by all active members, the invited guy. Well having just few majority of time, well now also with the schools starting.. but ye I could agree with that

Well that would work. I say, Limit the people who have access to the YouTube account. Maybe give the password to those who are absolutely certain that they can handle it and are volunteering.
Leonardo wrote:AoF is now a closed community, which means membership is now via invite only. The candidate must also be approved by all active members in order to officially join.
Regarding that, If AoF is even a little successful as a gaming community (I have faith that it will be good but you still gotta think of the other points) then it is wise that we change the membership to invite only. It would be a lot crowded soon. But if it is not, then AoF still has us.

Just to let you know, I don't think my schedule allows me to play during weekdays but on Fridays and Saturdays? Sure, except if there is an emergency.

even though not helping much, help bout we attempt to try to play unturned? its a free game and its a mix of minecraft and dayz.

also, i would really like to attempt to get active more and start joining in when we play and chat. It will take me some time to get used to it since my last year oh high school starts Thursday, but i can get a lot more active.

about that admin for forum, why not give it a go? everyone is trustworthy here besides myself who is power-hungry.

Other games which i recommend later on(since i dont have and you guys probably dont have either) but are very fun and get alot of views on youtube is dayz and garry's mod. those are some good games, but we should stick with what we know for now.

Yoda i was hoping we used mcmonkey's website for something besides posting videos, since we will be using youtube. Give me some time to ponder on what it can be used for, all i know right now is that we should utilize it.

As per the youtube channel, i trust you all so joint access will be given to all members, or at least that is my wish. If anyone disagrees as to why that shouldnt be with a valid reason, then only a couple members will receive access.

Anyway, not to worry on recording Venge, i'm hoping to record on Fridays/Weekends and then we'll pick a day during the week to post the video. It should be wednesday/thursday to give time to edit.

Early on, we're most likely going to record many minecraft videos because its the one game we have that people frequently search. I have some ideas for video topics that we'll discuss. After that, easing in JK2 would be best, then occassionally some TOR. Eventually though, i would definitely like to move on to Garry's Mod. Prop hunt is kind of a hot topic right now.

Thats okay, i'm still getting the necessary equipment for recording and i'm trying to get my hands on a turtle beach headset. Regardless if you cant chat or not you'll all still be mentioned in the video intro.

Does anyone have any alterations or suggestions to tweak the proposals above? Speak now because i'd like to start the forum rehaul

I apologize for the double post, I just found this article that I think everyone should read, at least the software/hardware part.

I for one am fully set up for recording -> see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkfoFTEZWYE

probably it'll be just me and you recording though.

When was this the "original plan"?
A while ago (while you were absent from AoFland), we have a skype group for it and everything. Nick and I were going to lead it, but it never really ended up happening.

Monkey, you never disappoint.

I'm curious by the way, will we all finally hear your voice?


I'll be browsing headsets today when I pick up my copy of Destiny, and if you're wondering why I haven't been on Skype, it's because I haven't downloaded it yet. #fail

Anyway, it appears that everything is in place, so I will start the poll.

Monkey's actually been in Teamspeak quite a lot lately, and has been making videos of new minecraft server features with audio commentary.

Be warned, though - his voice is incredibly sexy.
