Anyone notice that in the description of the <a href="http://www.jediknightii.net/cgi-bin/forum/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=forum&f=16">LEC/Raven/JKII.Net</a> forum that it says, "LucasArts, Raven, JKII.Net only." ?

Also, notice the title of the forum. LEC and Raven.

Wouldn't that just suck if LEC and Raven are colaborating with JKII.Net and giving them info on the game, and specific dates on when they can and can't post them?

I understand. But I think it would be cool if they were doing that. At least somebody would be getting info.

How did all these people get admin access?
More importantly, how can I?

They are dedicated members to the community. Good chance you'll never be a moderator/admin. You increase your chances by having intelligent discussions, helping others out, and being a good person in general. Or sleep with someone important like Aristotle or Zero. ;)

Well I do log in every day. Maybe one day I'll be an admin.

Heh, neither Raven or LEC has posted anything on the JKII.net boards yet. Like Gonk, I am forbidden to speak about the JK.net ones though. I don't want Jeff to throw me out of a moving van ;)

I think that sentance is by far more important than the rest. :D

But seriously... How does the selection process work? Do you just call someone up one day and ask them to be an admin?

GonkH8er
06-14-2001, 06:21 AM
no, you have to have been an active member at owk.net :)

And yeah Gonk, I think Canoli has you smoked on # of posts, membership time, and maybe even quality. ;)

Yeah, like Zero said, nothing really exciting is going on in that forum right now...basically our conversations are about the network and those type of happenings. Nothing really to worry about :)

Why are you all so bothered about being moderators....ok its a bit off fun, but believe me, for anyone who hasnt been a moderator before, it is hard work and takes a lot of dedication. Anyway, they've got loads of moderators! They just need to pay a little more attention, thats all.

OnlyOneCanoli
06-14-2001, 07:24 PM
I say leave the moderating to the moderators. They're doing a fine job, at least from where I'm sitting. Anyway, from the 6 staff members they have here, plus Kurgan coming back any day now, they've got more than enough to patrol our relatively small community we have here.

I wouldnt call it a 'small community'!!!! Its gonna be huge after raven have finished with the title. Even my non star wars friends are looking forward to it!!!!

OnlyOneCanoli
06-14-2001, 09:50 PM
I said relatively. Relative to the TF.N forums where I visit, which have over 30,000 members, or IGN, who has a ton more than TF.N.

wardz
06-14-2001, 10:40 PM
but I'd prefer to have a smaller close knit community rather than have 30,00 members who don't know who anyone is..

Agreed. That's why many of us miss the OWK.net forums. For the longest time after Obi-Wan was cancelled for the PC, a small handful of us had those forums to ourselves. And it was just that, a small close-knit community where everybody knows your name - and they're always glad you came :)

GonkH8er
06-14-2001, 11:17 PM
vag, you took the words right out of my mouth :)


maybe, in 9 months time, we'll be looked up to as the regs and founding members of these boards, and all the little sprats will respect us :)

i say we all give eachother 5 stars. someone start a thread in theed called '5 star voting' and we'll all just post once and give everyone in there 5 stars. then we dont look like bickering old farts.....

OnlyOneCanoli
06-14-2001, 11:59 PM
The mods are saying some stuff about plans for owk.net. I hope it's good. I'd love to have that little community back.

And I think stars are silly. Maybe someone who just doesn't like you brought you down to 4 stars. Stars aren't reflecting one's posting ability or dedication, but rather how many friends you have or how many enemies you have.

GonkH8er
06-15-2001, 12:13 AM
woooooooooooohoooooo someone doesnt like me! :)

ChrisC3po
06-15-2001, 12:18 AM
OnlyOneCanoli: I totally agree with you about the rating system. I'm thinking we should scrape the whole thing.

While we are on the subject will someone please vote for me? :D

Boba Rhett
06-15-2001, 01:04 AM
The whole thing is a bad idea. Perhaps if everyone here got along, never argued and weren't immature, it could work but with things being the way they are, there's no way this star system could ever spawn anything good.


maybe, in 9 months time, we'll be looked up to as the regs and founding members of these boards, and all the little sprats will respect us

We can only hope. :) Just imagine, A jk2 society as big as even Half-Lifes' and all of us at the helm. *drifts off into lala land*


P.S. Don't worry Chris, I voted for ya. ;)

I agree about the voting
Someone who hasnt even posted once can give you 1 star because he doesnt agree with your comments

Maybe the moderators could vote only, and the people given 5 stars by them
Or the mods could moderate the given stars
nah
Too much work for them and there is no need for it

GonkH8er
06-15-2001, 05:14 AM
we could scrap it and go for a simple UBB mod.... like stars depending on number of posts....

100 - 1 star
200 - 2 stars
400 - 4 stars


hrmmmmm then again we'd have mad posters....


perhaps some more ranks?

Boba Rhett
06-15-2001, 09:04 AM
I think more ranks would cause even bigger problems with post "whoring" than the stars would. Unless your talking about assinged ranks by mods and admins but that would be a hell of alot of work. :eek:

06-15-2001, 05:08 PM
I'd go with digl, having the admins vote would be better, but then again why should they? We all know who are the people that make sensible comments, and they are the ones that become more respected rather than the people who post 3000 times a day for the sake of it, with nothing decent to add...

I think the rating system is dull. It only develops conflicts. We all said this at the beginning! Im gonna hide mine cause its pointless....whose with me!!!!!!

OnlyOneCanoli
06-15-2001, 07:51 PM
Maybe the admins here could disable it entirely?

ChrisC3po
06-15-2001, 08:14 PM
The ratings can be disabled. Turning them off will be discussed at the next LG.com meeting, sometime this week. I’ll keep you guys updated.

wardz
06-15-2001, 09:12 PM
I feel a little uneasy about the potential return of OWK.net. While most of the old regs will still go back, maybe myself included, you can't expect it to be the same and that may inturn 'ruin' the fun we all had before it was closed.

I would like to see other peoples opinions on this...

Vagabond

My thoughts on the return of OWK.net is that it's a legitimate site for LucasGames to cover, but most of us old regulars shouldn't expect it to be the same site we came to love. Let's admit it - while some may have been truly interested in the X-Box version of Obi-Wan, most of us were really jonsing for a JKII-type game. That's why most of us went to the Obi-Wan site in the first place - because LucasArts initially marketed it as a sequel to Jedi Knight.

Obi-Wan should be covered as the X-Box title that it is, but for those of us who have already stepped through the looking glass, we can never go home again.

digl
06-15-2001, 11:38 PM

Agree

In the tradition of Dark Forces and Jedi Knight
One of their biggest mistakes was that phrase

wardz
06-15-2001, 11:55 PM
I think you have hit the nail on the head there vag, I will be quite happy to see how the old dog is doing, but it is time to make way for the next lot.

It is not my\our place to go back and hog it all. That would be unfair to the people who actually want it for the xbox rather than us going down memory lane...

I feel I may be outnumbered on this view as everyone will shoot back at the first opportunity, but I am just warning people more than anything - not to expect it to be a replica of the OWK.net we once flocked to.

Heh...I'm late to the thread again, as usual. ;)

As far as the Stars rating system goes, I don't really see any point to it. Anyone can give you any rating whether they know you or not, whether they've read your posts and agree with you or not. And it has no particular function, so I think it might be a good idea to ditch it.

I think the same goes for other Ranks, like Stormtrooper, Mercenary etc, tied to how many posts you've made. What usually happens is someone decides they absolutely must have the greatest number of posts, and they will post anything just to bump up their post-count.

I think that's rather pointless. Personally, I usually only post something when I feel I have something good to contribute to the forum, either to help others, or to debate pertinent issues.

Regarding OWK.Net...yeah, I think you guys are right. We had some really good times over there, and I have some fond memories - but like anything, once you move on, if you try to go back to something you've left behind, it never feels the same.

I vote we enjoy the here and now, and attempt to make these forums as good and friendly as OWK.Net was.

Also, long live the Galactic Plumberman Alliance! :D

Aragorn
06-16-2001, 01:15 AM
Yeah, I can't see myself going back to OWK.net. It won't be the same...
I wouldn't like to see 3000 members here either...That way you will never know the person you are talking to.

As for the ratings, I agree with most of you people, we really have to get rid of them.

matt--
06-16-2001, 01:38 AM
There isn't a stormtrooper rank that I'm aware of.

CaptainRAVE
06-16-2001, 03:46 PM
Ratings are pointless anyway. If someone doesnt like you, then theyd give you a good rating. I someone does like you, then you get a high rating. Either way it'll cause conflicts. Just scrap them i say!! OR, have a vote on the main page. Just an idea!!!

[ June 16, 2001: Message edited by: CaptainRAVE ]

Boba Rhett
06-16-2001, 09:32 PM
Yeah, that's not a bad idea. How about having that as the next poll?
