Questions
 
I have had so many people say (or thought I already was) that I should be in the Jedi Academy as a teacher.

I do teach people how to play the game, heh, even been called "Master" by a few padawans.

How exactly would I become a "master"/teacher. I'm very, very skilled with a saber, and very good with guns.

Do I first have to go through some "training"....because, it will feel odd, because I already know what to do. I'm willing to take on a master though.


For saber, I can normally takes on 4 enemies at once all against me.


I prefer CTF over FFA, due to at least SOME teamwork.

obi 02-08-2003 12:38 PM

I was hoping you'd stumble this way soon, Rp :D


For Academy information,check out the sticky threads in this forum. As for the gaming side, We do need another gaming instructer. You're more then welcome to join our community. ;)

As for the forum side, 0-700posts are padawans of masters, 700-1000 are Jedi Knights, and 1000+ are Jedi Masters, and then you can take on a padawan here in the forums. LFJA members usually keep in touch via MSN messenger, so if you want to join the LFJA community, Get MSN if you haven't done so already. (Trillian is fine too)

If you already have MSN, just give me your contact when you join the academy.

RpTheHotrod 02-08-2003 01:55 PM

Yeah, I'll fill in the app

Eh, I rarely use MSN, but it's dangearn22@hotmail.com
AIM is RpTheHotrod
E-mail is rpthehotrod@yahoo.com


I'm so creative.

I'll try to get on MSN more


now to spam to 1,000....

(just kidding!)

Darklighter 02-08-2003 02:10 PM

A risky joke there Rp;)Well, welcome to the Academy man. You'll be able to take on a padawan when you reach 1000 posts. We are not so much JK2 related at the moment, only occasionally play games when they can be hosted by fellow members. We're hoping to get a dedicated server in the near future though. Anyways, browse around the forum to find out more about us and what we do. Welcome again:)

Jed 02-09-2003 04:38 PM

Also Rp, I'd like to thank you for your promptness in filling out the registration form. People like you make my job (database guy) easier!

:D

RpTheHotrod 02-09-2003 04:47 PM

:D


Just some information on me

I prefer teamwork, so I'll join servers in this order normally

CTF--->Team FFA---->FFA


I prefer a saber over a weapon, but if a gunner comes along, I'll pull the weapon out of his hand and use it against him if it's an area of effect weapon.

I built my force config on forcing the enemy to saber fight or run.

I'm great at listening to orders and I'm very loyal.

I enjoy helping others as much as I can.

Jed 02-09-2003 04:49 PM

You sound like an ideal member Rp ;)

How proud you would have made some master if you had joined a few months ago...

:)

RpTheHotrod 02-09-2003 05:58 PM

Well, I probably would have joined if someone asked me to, but lately, I've been getting so many people ask what my responsibility in the LFJA was, I figured I'd join so I could tell them something.

:D

I can't tell ya'll how proud I am that LFJA grew this much. Brings me to tears, mates. :D

RpTheHotrod 02-09-2003 11:39 PM

So.....what to do now?

:eek:

We need to get a server somehow.

1. Server Issue: No dedicated server will be implimented due to lack of funds. Games will be hosted by members who are capable of doing so on a volunteer basis.
i hope this solves your question;)

welcome to the LFJA :D

RpTheHotrod 02-10-2003 07:42 PM

Yeah, that's why I said somehow ;) You never know, I've seen a group of total strangers pull together to buy a few servers before.

Glad to be aboard.

Well, that makes the future seem brighter!:D How could we pull it off without $? Do speak up good chum! :D

RpTheHotrod 02-11-2003 12:49 AM

I'm just saying, I've seen a few people "pay" for the servers by a certain group splitting the costs, and sometimes I've seen a single person paying for a server alone for a group.


Anyone here rich? :)

Does that answer your question? :(

LFJA is a not for profit organization. We can't raise the funds required to run a server. Until Goerge Lucas, funds our operation, we shall have to resort to allowing volunteers to host games.:(

RpTheHotrod 02-11-2003 07:33 PM

Eh, guess I'm not saying it the right way.

Here's an example of what happened before. A group I was with online played a game. One of them decided to fund the entire group by buying a server.

I know it's non-profit...but you never know when someone might join and offer such a thing.

heh, nevermind...forget I mentioned it ;)

Actually, that was the same Idea I had in mind. If I ever get into a decent paying job, I'd fund it myself, just for the exitment. Just so you know, LFJA has not closed the issue should a situation such as THAT develope. If someone who has money joined us and wanted to purchase us a server, we would welcome with open arms and we will once again open discusions. Until some rich bean joins LFJA, the server issue is where it stands. I for one admire your positive outlook for us. We need that around here, and it's good to have you with us! Welcome to the Academy! :D

Darklighter 02-12-2003 12:39 PM

Uh huh, we're still keeping an open mind about the issue, though we're not exactly going anywhere with it at the moment. Reason why we can't fund it ourselves is that a lot of the members are under 18, and aren't earning money on a regular basis. Right now we'll just have to deal with members freely hosting games. I feel it works okay, when we get enough people to play. The LFJA is not so much JK2 related at the moment, it is more forum-based, but as we are expanding further I foresee this issue becoming a definite possibility:)

RpTheHotrod 02-12-2003 01:05 PM

I'd fund it...but... my bills cost $430 and I'm making $600 a month at 19.

Damn, and I thought I was doing bad.:confused: I make that in a week. In 2000, my yearly income was about 24,000. Pathetic, I know, but a heck of alot better than I am doing now.

RpTheHotrod 02-14-2003 12:52 AM

Ah, but does your job pay for all your medical bills, eye doctor bills, 80% of your dental, 401k, retirment plans, stock ownership plans, all of your college bills, and even a Christmas turkey? :)

Darth Groovy 02-14-2003 06:32 AM

I had a job that used to give me all that, even the turkeys. Tasted like chicken.:confused:

Clemme w/Stick 02-14-2003 11:33 AM

Welcome to the Acadamy RP. I'm soon to be a master...yay :D!

Well, I'll just add you to MSN and AIM, talk to ya there some day..!

-Clemme

RpTheHotrod 02-26-2003 09:39 PM

Well, I'm getting there. ;)

I did have 957 posts until an admin deleted a thread of a "discussion" I was in. Lost alot of posts. No warning or anything was given...just *poof* end of disscussion. Why not just lock it?

obi 02-26-2003 10:24 PM

Wasn't me....

:confused:

Rogue Nine 02-26-2003 10:28 PM

I always make it my policy not to delete large threads.

Darklighter 02-27-2003 09:57 PM

Thanks for that consideration Nine. I rarely ever see discussion-based topics being deleted; they are mostly spam threads by trolls that get deleted in the Swamp. Odd:eyeraise:

RpTheHotrod 03-01-2003 04:30 PM

Id say if a troll highjacks a thread, delete the troll's reponse, not the entire thing ;)

of coarse, I'm used to doing that from my old forums.

Juhnmia_Ryu 03-01-2003 05:32 PM

hello!
 
ok let's get down to business! I'm gonna get a copy of JK2 maybe tomorrow and I'm gonna make some upgrades on my PC to play it, I had a purchased Half Life server but I canceled it so maybe I can use that for a Server of LFJA... how's that? I'll see what I can do and talk to ya later about it...

Darklighter 03-01-2003 08:34 PM

Yowsers:eek:That would be beyond awesome Juhnmia. If you could get it working as a dedicated and permanant JK2 server, we would be eternally grateful:)See if it's possible.

Juhnmia_Ryu 03-01-2003 09:40 PM

hey everyone
 
Ok, I'm in business, I am a proud owner of an Xbox game console with the JK2 cd and guess what it can be played online!!!!!!:D
This is great I've been playing non-stop, so now I'm cheking prices for the server, just cross your fingers awright?

I got the Xbox deliverred this afternoon, but I'm still getting the GC version and the PC(just as an excuse for making my PC a bit more powerful) hehehe;) well I'll see ya'll soon with the news ok?

Wes Marrakesh 03-02-2003 07:50 PM

I'm glad you're getting the PC version, because I don't think we can interact with the Xbox version.

RpTheHotrod 03-11-2003 11:05 PM

I made 1000...so what next? Am I an auto-master...or do I need to be added to a list?

Juhnmia_Ryu 03-14-2003 01:24 AM

What's up y'all
 
I'm back after 6 days I think, that's why I posted like 6 messages in other forums, I still write one pero day and sometimes non when I'm not inspired I f I get inspired I will post like 10 or 15 pero day we'll see. Just wanted to say hello guys.

Darklighter 03-14-2003 03:54 AM

Well, hey man:)Glad to see you're still here.

Rp, there's no list you need to be added to. You're automatically a master. You can make a thread pronouncing the news and stating that you need a padawan, when you want to get a padawan:)

Juhnmia_Ryu 03-28-2003 08:31 PM

back again
 
Hey guys 'm back again after all these days I finally got a chance to write, been busy with school and work you know...
