We have finished most of our short term plans and daily operations are running once again through Discord! There have been lots of improvements and changes since the last post, and many more planned. It's amazing how much has changed in one month!

Document Changes
  • About updated the clan description, mission, leadership, and role descriptions.
  • Clan Agreement updated to include rule about Final Fantasy Character requirement, and removed multi-clanning rule.
  • Recruitment process updated with clear instructions and an invite link for Discord.
  • Tweeted for the first time in three years!
  • BattleTags have been removed and will be re-introduced in the future (possibly under a different name)

Technical Changes
  • Discord has been setup for official chat communications.
  • All official clan documents are now versioned using Git.
  • New bookmark icon for Safari. Simply bookmark in Safari to see it. You can also  "Add to Home Screen" in Safari on iOS to see it as an app.
  • Site is now entirely https (secure!). The only exception are some remote user assets (remote avatars, signatures, and images in posts). You can update your profile avatar / signatures to use https instead of http.
  • Forums cleaned up for better viewing on mobile.

We are currently exploring ways to integrate the Forum accounts together with Discord accounts. We are also in the process of upgrading the forums to something that looks and works really great! It is currently in beta and we will start using it when it is finished and the migration is successful.

We are also looking at new ways to present news and clan documents outside of the forums to improve presentation and make it more appealing to join.

Thank you to everyone for making all this possible!

Hi everyone!

After the announcement of Starcraft: Remastered, I was reminiscing about this clan. Although I am not very active on here anymore, I did bring up the idea of restoring the clan in the Skype group and was encouraged by those still interested. I came up with a new goal to restore this clan into an active community that shares gaming experiences (FF and non-FF related) together across a variety of gaming platforms.

Thinking back about what has made this clan successful in the past, I came up with a short term plan to get things started again, and a follow-up plan to fully restore the community. This is all a work in progress and subject to change. I am open to any feedback, advice, and recommendations to help us restore the community.

If you're interested in helping, continue the discussion in this thread or on Skype.

Short Term Plan
Technical
  • Replace Skype with Discord
  • Modern Forums that also work well on touch screen devices (phones, tablets) and retina screens
  • Migrate important sections from past forums to new forums
Administrative
Revise current rules and roles to reflect the following:
  • Reinstate Final Fantasy character name requirement (no longer optional).
  • A nickname can be used in addition to the character name.
  • All Judge positions are now vacant: Seeking two active members to fulfill positions

Follow-up Plans
Technical
  • New character progression system to replace ICE
Administrative
  • Organize game communities and events
  • Open up 2-4 new Judge positions to moderate and host events
