Community Update #1
Posted by:WNxPhoenix

Community Update #1

We have a few updates to bring you this weekend, starting with an update on the status of our migration project and a few bits on next steps and things to look out for as we prepare for our migration. We will continue to bring you updates as and when we have them for you.

-WNxPhoenix and WNxSwitchBlade



The Updates
The Website

Click the image to open in full size.

One of the most pressing issues for those of you currently frequenting Community Discussion is the progress of the website update/forum migration which is currently in the works.

Several pages of database information, error logs and lots of other technical information which I couldn't possibly explain properly has been sent over to IPB (our chosen forum software provider) to assess what is going wrong with the migration tool WhiteWolf has been using. Their engineers have now been given access to our server to assess what's going wrong and why with the goal of providing WhiteWolf with a migration tool that will work for our community.

Once this is received by WhiteWolf the three of us will schedule time in ASAP to get this migration on the way.

I promise all of you that there is progress. I'm sorry that you're not seeing it yet and that some of you are feeling strung-along by the entire process. However, there is no way that I would be here writing this thread and stating that progress is being made if I did not believe it myself.

We will get there, and soon.

In the mean time...
The lack of a new website does not mean, however, that nothing is going on. We are now in a position to start properly preparing our forum for the migration. There are changes we can make to the forum before migration day that'll make the post-migration period much easier for everyone and will allow us to hit the ground running and working on new additions to our website/forum, rather than fixing some of the old things. Migration day will involve taking an up to date copy of the website and migrating that, so changes made now will be reflected on the new site.




Pre-Migration Changes

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:

Forum Changes
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 members.

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.



A Note on Development...
Click the image to open in full size.

The decision has been made to lift the freeze on bringing new games into WN and the recruitment of new Engineers. However, these are subject to conditions as outlined below:

Entry of New Games
Not every game will be approved for WN. Priority will be given to AAA titles over any other. Non-AAA titles will be subject to approval from the Operations team. We also cannot guarantee that Development Support will be available for these games. Those games that are approved must meet the following two conditions before they will be given a forum and a game selector:
  • 10 newly recruited members signed up as Primary within the Workshop
  • At least one member must have applied for Game Champion
*AAA titles will bypass these requirements.

Recruitment of Engineers
For the foreseeable future will only be recruiting new Engineers that are able to support the AAA titles that WN will be focusing on in the near future. NOTE: This is likely to include larger titles that are already in WN but require intensive support.

If you want to get involved in building successful sections for these games or providing assistance to those that we have, we would welcome an application from you.

Further information on all of the above will be provided as and when elements go live or updates are available.


If you wish to discuss any of the above and what it may mean for you, your section or WN, please feel free to talk to WNxSwitchBlade or myself on Discord or PM us.

Ace Award - April 2016
Posted by:WNxSwitchBlade

Ace Award - April, 2016


Click the image to open in full size.
Awarded to Combat Media Staff that perform their job far above average. Writing or creating excellent graphics, reports, interviews, creative pieces or game guides such as the work on histories or reviews can be issue reasons. Helping and improving other members' work is also specially recognized by this award.

(Only 1 per genre issued every month maximum.)


It's been quite sometime since we have nominated anyone in Combat Media for the Ace Award. Due to the reformation of Combat Media one member has stood out. WNxabysz has been my go to guy and has helped out with numerous tasks that I have thrown at him. While I was busy with RL and other banners that I have been working on myself, other banner requests came in so I looked to WNxabysz and he was there to knock these requests out. He has bounced back tremendously in activity and is going to be my go to guy for now on and I believe he has gotten more experienced since I took over GAT. You can find WNxabysz latest works in the following sections; Black Desert, Overwatch and Tree Savior.


- Nominated by WNxMravens10

Introducing the new Warrior Nation VoIP! (or aeoihealioae, as WNxSwitchblade calls it)
Posted by:WNxGalbsadi


Voice over IP (VoIP) Changes in Warrior Nation

For years, we have used Mumble as our official voice-over-IP program at Warrior Nation, and while this may have been our best option at the time, it has been noticed by the administration that we need something...newer, fresher. Something that can be quick and easy, while at the same time providing us with the stability to push forward as a community and have a place to call our home.

After some deliberation and experimentation with multiple VoIP programs, the decision has been made to move forward with Discord as our new official VoIP software.

Advantages:
  • No Download Required!
    While Discord does have a fantastic desktop application, for basic usage no download is required to simply log in and get in the action. All you have to do is click a link and you're in!
  • Free Mobile Functionality!
    Unlike Mumble (and TS3), Discord has a free, easy-to-use, and functional mobile app for both iOS and Android. This works for all forms of communication in Discord, and with our testing was very reliable.
  • Game Tracking
    Do you want to know what game your friends are playing, similar to the days of XFire in the past? Any user with the desktop app installed has the option to broadcast their currently running game to all other users in the server, allowing for quick and easy coordination to improve your game nights!
  • Text Chat!
    Obviously in a VoIP program voice is our primary concern. With Discord, however, a fully functional text chat application is being integrated into the system, allowing this to serve mid-length needs without having to open Skype.
  • Simple Moderator/Admin Controls
    This will be followed up with section leaders as they are integrated into the system, but simple controls means a simple lifestyle for keeping your section running the way it should. Further, unlike the case some section leaders have had with TS3, if a problematic user pops up, the section leader will be able to control the situation until an admin can be notified.

Structural Changes:
  • Unified VoIP Clan-Wide
    Discord is being set up to be simple and easy to use for all sections of Warrior Nation, be it XBox, PlayStation, Elder Scrolls Online, Dirty Bomb, Counter Strike, World of Warcraft, League of Legends, or anything else. For those of you who only play one game, you're free to only use your own voice channel, and no participation in the text chats or other channels is required. For those who wish to actually have a community that plays multiple games together...we're doing this for you! General chat will let you quickly keep up to date with the community at large, while individual voice channels will allow you to focus on the game you are playing at the time. Switching is as easy as it's ever been, with a simple mouse-click to get to the channel you want.
  • Easy Administrator Access
    Rumors have been around of a "super-secret hidey hole" known as "the Pentagon" or "Hangouts" where the admins such as myself go to get things done. While I can neither confirm nor deny these allegations, I can note that current administrators will be active on the Discord server, allowing for quick access to get our help where needed.



Discord New User's Guide

Connecting to a Server
  1. Click on the invite link for the server here.
  2. Contact an Administrator to get your login approved.
    (It is strongly recommended that you use your forum username as your discord name, for ease of getting identified and approved.)
  3. That's it! If you claim an account with Discord, future logins will be automatic and these steps will not need to be repeated.

Claiming an Account
  1. Enter your desired username in Discord.
  2. Click "claim this account" on the top of your screen.
  3. Enter an e-mail address (for recovery) and password.
    (Note: Warrior Nation administration cannot access, reset, or manage your Discord account. Think of it like a Steam or XFire account.)
  4. That's it! You can verify your e-mail with Discord as you desire.

Changing Your Voice Settings
  1. Click on the cogwheel (gear) icon by your name on the lower-left hand of your screen.
  2. Choose the appropriate device, where applicable, volume levels, and push to talk or voice activity.
    (Warrior Nation strongly prefers and asks that you use push to talk where available, as a courtesy to your fellow members.)

Installing the Desktop Application
(By installing the desktop application, you turn your discord application from good to great! You will gain system-wide push-to-talk, automatic login (if desired), and will be able to broadcast your current game to other members of Warrior Nation (if desired). An overlay feature is forthcoming as well.)
  1. Go to https://discordapp.com/apps
  2. Select the appropriate operating system for the app.
  3. Follow the on-screen prompts.

Formatting Text
  • Discord uses markdown for text formatting
  • So put *before and after text* to get text like this.
  • Put **before and after text** to get text like this.
  • If you want both, like this, put ***before and after text***.
  • Lastly, if you want something underlined, put _before and after text_.

TL;DR Instructions
  1. Click me.

Note from WNxGalbsadi
Like many of you, I've been gaming on multiple platforms and playing multiple games for nearly as long as I can remember. (In fact, I've been gaming longer than some of our youngest members have even been alive.) In this time, I've experienced multiple VoIP programs, including Ventrilo, RaidCall, TeamSpeak, Mumble, Skype, Lync, Yahoo! Messenger, AIM, and, most recently...Discord. Of all of these, Discord is by far the easiest to use, in my opinion, and has great stability options available to assist administrators in keeping things the best they can be.
