These are, of course, in their infancy. Expect design changes to come to the site's news page. If anyone wants to be involved message me here.
My goal is to have some of the more interesting news stories gathered daily from the web, and compiled here. Ultimately, I would like to see a system where players can send us their news and we can post what we deem newsworthy. If I sat all day compiling news myself I would never get to play (and all I want to do is play). These are things that will be built over time. Ideas/suggestions always welcome.
Cheers to you all, good to be back.
P.S. I should mention all news will be IN-CHARACTER. So we won;t be posting and news that relates to the game IRL (updates, changes to code etc), this is meant as an in-character, in-game news network.
Lets make this thing amazing, and get HG's attention, we'll work with them directly in the future
We can make a RSS news system within the deiscoveries forum? ,i exdplain myself letting the non administrators users post a thread and the title an subtitle of the post goes to the RSS channel , so all the members can see in real time the discoveries of others and post his discoveries.I'm not sure if there is a module for that in some moduled type webs or you just can set in a forum a RSS channel for certain threads.
I can read about that, to make sure of that, anyway if you need some technical help, i offer mine (i am a programmer , the web programming isn't my thing but i can do some)
To the center of the universe, explore, discover, endure and survive.
Here is a link to our RSS feed to our blog. May be usefull for pilots to use the blog to enetr any interesting facts or finds when the game goes live, that way i can update any information that is not already up there and reduce on replication. And also may be of use for those that just wish to keep an update on any site activity or other information posted on the blog in general.
Padrino helped me test out author access on his pilot's page. he only had access via his mobile and was unable to access the page for editing, even with permissions set up. So for now it looks like only those members with PC access will be able to use this function once enabled for them.
I will need a BC member who has a PC to test further to ensure this is not a problem with the functionality in general, and not just isolated to mobile access. Contact me via PM if you wish to test this function for me via PC, and send me an email contact if you already have not done so, in order for me to send you the access link.
If anyone has a workaround for this, then by all means PM me. (Thinking about members with Console and Mobile only internet access.) The only solution may be that they link to here and myself or another admin can link their cloud related info, docs, photo albums, vids, journal' etc for them when the time comes.
Oh, and altsaxen, I wish to duplicate the mobile access again also, just to ensure it was not an isolated problem, and see if you can access via your mobile, as I have your email, I will send you access asap.
