Over the coming days and weeks you are likely to begin noticing changes around the forum as we begin to plan and test how parts of WN will either look or operate once our IPB site is ready to be enjoyed. Some of the changes you may start to see include:
You will be likely to see changes to our current forum arrangement including name changes, position changes, removal of certain forums and so on...
A reduction in the number of sections currently supported by WN.
This is one of the more unfortunate consequences of our current situation and restructuring. WN has many inactive or dead sections that house only a very small number of active members. These are sections that we do not have, nor do we expect to have in the foreseeable future, resources to fix. As such the decision will be made to archive these sections. Please note that we expect this to only affect a small number of active
Development of a new rank structure.
Work is currently underway to make WN a lot more simple to understand and a large part of this is further work on our structure - a project that will have 'does what it says on the tin' very much at the forefront of the changes.
At this point I can say that from Chief Officer to regular member there will now only be five layers
of 'rank' within the community (with specialisations). Two administrative, two leadership/departmental officer, and the general membership. Ranks will be renamed almost across the board and the new names will reflect where that person belongs and, hopefully, give new and old members a pretty good idea of what they do without needing a handbook!
The most obvious changes will be to the rank names, tags and colours. Further updates will be posted as these changes are made.
Changes to our Laws
WN's current laws page and the laws themselves is looking rather tired and outdated. WN has operated a Laws system for many years now to varying degrees of success and flexibility. Our Laws will be replaced by a Code of Conduct in the near future, which will adapt and change as Warrior Nation does and be very much a living part of our Community moving forwards. The CoC will go into more detail about what types of behaviour and actions we do not condone and will also give more information than is currently available about the punishments for violating the rules of WN will be.
There are likely to be further changes in addition to the above as we progress with our plans to set WN up in such a way that it can be successful once again moving forwards. Again, further updates will be posted if this is to be the case.
