.. or something.. :)

This is what's been diverting my attention for the last 2 weeks or so. The story goes a long time ago I did a little server called tRO. Well a few of the guys who help to make it got together (a few times). This evolved from 2008's tRO3 to NotRO, to 2Dudes1RO. (Named so due to @Ferdal and I talking about this RO stuff we left unfinished.)

It's more in the style of tRO1 where it's just for fun. Like with tRO you can just chat if you wish, but you won't be making the most of the game.

Head over to http://www.2Dudes1RO.org for more info, or visit the forums which are hosted here on Kafuka!

Seems we needed a new forum for Forum Games. So now all of those threads will go in there. Dunno how we missed having that forum before.

Anyway, go have fun!

Hello all,

In the 2.5.1 update @Gywall has implemented a new system for the user birthdays. This however required a db changes that wouldn't allow us to keep everyone's birthdays. I was looking into conversion but we had less than 40 entries for birthday so I have saved it out but it'll just be faster is everyone fixes theirs than have a script or me manually converting them...

Please review your profile to make sure if yours is missing. (I did update a handful by hand as a test, so if you have one that would be why. )

Again, sorry about the inconvenience.

Hello everyone,

First off I would like you to congratulate @Nicole in a promotion to Full Moderator! I made the decision to add her to staff to help cover the afternoon, while giving a fresh perspective to our staff. Why not local moderator you ask? Well on a board like this Local Moderators really don't work. Local Moderators will be reserved for hosted forums form now on until we grow to a point where we need it. Also I will be asking Nicole to do a few things in a near future that will be easier if done as a member of staff.

Second off due to the fact that I won't be as active this month I have appointed @Gywall to a temp Administrator position to cover the (from my perspective) early morning time frame, and allow one addition person who can handle spam bots if we get them.. His term will end on 8/1/2012. Until such time he will be returned to Full Moderator in accordance with the new policy on Local Moderators.
Please congratulate him!

Also DJ Bouche as stepped down to a Developer position. He's just doesn't have the time to really be an admin for the board, and would just like to work on the code.
His slot will be open until at least the end of @Gywall's term.

Thank you for your time,

-Emuz

We need Sprites™!

No, not the transparent fizzy lemon-lime drink Sprite.

I'm talking about those little dudes and doodads that pop up on your screen every now and then that you can click on and collect. Those.

Check out this thread to discuss this information.

To recap: We need Sprites that fit the Retro era of gaming, preferably 8-bit ones. We need to start out with CORE FRANCHISES at first. If we get enough, then we can branch out to 16-bit and more obscure (and non-game oriented) Sprites.

Requirements are stated as follows:
- Must not blend into background easily. Make a black outline around (and inside) them if the game was designed with a black neutral color. (See Metroid sprites for a good example)
- Must be size optimized. No .bmp files. If you use a non-lossless format, make sure it's not noticeable.
- aGIF for animation preferred. PNG or GIF for still sprites accepted. Indexed PNG's are nice for the ability to specify palettes. (A palette of 64 colors is ideal; if you need more, 128 or 256 is also acceptable)
- Use Dropbox for your uploading needs. I would love to have you guys use this link because it's a referral link; anyone who uses it nets me a bonus. I'd appreciate it. On top of that, it's really the best upload service out there. No ads, no captchas, no bullshit. Drop files in this local folder and they go wherever you have Dropbox installed. You can even access them through the website!
- Optional: Include a description and a mouseover text for your sprite.
- Optional: Remember to make your Sprite with an indexed palette, starting with 64 colors or 128 or 256 if you need more.
- Optional: Animate your Sprites. The extra mile adds a nice appeal to the feature.

Here are the suggested franchises we'd like:
  1. SMB2 (and the poison mushroom from 2j)
  2. SMB3
  3. SMW
  4. SM Allstars variations of SMB 1-3 (this one is the one Emuz and I are looking forward to)
  5. Super Metroid
  6. Yoshi's Island
  7. Zelda 1


Remember, participation is rewarded! Not much we can do right now in terms of practical, useful stuff; but things are planned, and you won't be forgotten!



I want to share one last thing..

Now that we have resolved the ban I have one last thing to say. Besides the people calling for heads, I've had a lot of people tell me they don't feel welcome here.

I built this place to be one of unity, not of division and segregation. I want everyone to have fun. You may not like people on here, and that's fine. If you have a criticism about someone, all you need to do is present it in a well thought out, non-accusatory manner, and we will listen. Don't start shit with them, don't provoke them, just leave them be. Being rude is also something that just drives people batty.

A lot of you have stated or come to me as well going I don't like group X, or group Y fucking sucks. They both have equal right to be here.

That's it. I just want everyone to have fun and be nice to each other. Spamming not and then in the right place, fine! You want to make statements that are a joke against someone, make sure that person is ok with it.

You can have fun and be nice at the same time. That's the cause of almost all of what I've seen in terms of complaints.

In closing, All I want to see is peace between everyone. It's up to you to see it though.

Sorry this a big a long day. I have a few minutes before class and I wanted to share why the ban decision was come to.

I am going by the complaints I got over the last week, the many many attempts Staff and associates tried havingOut of the 8 or so I got via /msgs or PMs. J was #1 and jet #2 (GM was #3 if you wanted to know) However all was sent to me privately, and while you are in your rights to doubt in what I say, If you've known me for a long time I don't lie about shit like this. I take complaints very seriously.

You wanna know what? Ryudo would have just banned them day one on a much bigger forum like FFL. Their fun having wasn't the problem. I actually found the RoboCop stuff humorous. The staff as a whole just didn't like how it evolved into a way to mock the staff. That in itself was also fine, can't be funny if you can't laugh at yourself. The simple suggestion we were about to adjust the rules about Custom titles and you guys when "lol" or "Don't you like robocop" in essence a "fuck off" The general attitudes against staff, the Bronies, egging GM on so he's an even bigger problem. All that stuff fine. We let it pass for a while. But..

When I get /msg and e-mails and all shorts of private communications saying "I am not going on that board with that trolling going on" or "I'm going to leave.. Jet, Nick, and MrJ are too much" That. The board cannot grow like that. I have a group of people who was going to share the board. They took ONE look and passed. The reason I got was related to the harsh attitudes.

I don't ask much do? Rules are simple? "Don't be a dick" that's all you need to do. Have your opinions, tell the staff in words not "LOL HAT'N", you know basic stuff. We asked to, and someone on this board I won't name tried to talk to you guys, we've warned you many time to just mellow out on the trolling aggressiveness but you didn't.

As for Kawa's involvement. He did a favor for me. The staff was having a vote on this, and I wasn't going to be able to watch today much at work. He got stuck applying the ban and I apologize for that.

As Ryudo just pointed out.. a lot of other boards would have banned this behavior right away. You may not like our ban.. you are free to discuss it with us. You many not believe this, but if you know me well enough I can say I hate banning anyone. Hopefully we can resolve the issues between us and the ban can be lifted sooner rather than later.

Thank you for your time,

-Emuz

Hello everyone,

I am not a fan of arbitrary bans. If you wish to leave this board over my actions here today, that's fine. However this needs to be done for the health of the board.

When people I asked to the board tell me that they are leaving as it is a "troll filled mess", that's the final straw. While I am all about freedoms, rules, and chances, there comes a point where people use that against you.

The people in question have the intent to do things their way and to ignore what everyone else may or may not want.

They have broken some of the rules, mostly the trolling one (and we've had more than one non-partisan complain about this). There have also been counts of flaming.

Regardless, this isn't a permaban, but it is also not a timed ban. If they can convince us that they can mellow out on the harsh stuff, they are welcome back after a little bit of a cooling off period.

I am not unreasonable, but when it comes down to it I plan to use this board for projects and at this moment even I don't want to post here.

If you have questions or concerns please see us on IRC.

Thanks :(

With a new message board comes a new community, with which also comes new features. This is a test announcement. So long as I'm up here flapping my... fingers, I might as well do something constructive with this time. So, welcome to Kafuka! All of us here in staff wishes you the best and we hope you all enjoy the time you spend here. We hope it brings back memories as well as create new and amazing ones!

Ciao!~
