Hey guys!

 

The new year is right around the corner and XC has a fairly major update to go with it. 

 

One of the first things I did when I became head admin here was look at what the admins before me had done. I looked at what they did right and I looked at what they did wrong. I noticed one recurring theme which tended to mark the end of each head admin's tenure here, and that was that they were juggling too many things for them to handle, in their own words. It didn't take a lot of self-debating to come to a solid conclusion: I wanted a team. And with that, I present to you Team XC 2016 (cool nickname, eh?).

 

Head Admin: Jesse

Admin: Gren

Admin: Bardon

Global Moderator: Emma

Global Moderator: Exarion

 

All other Moderators will be returned to Member, except n00bdragon. No admins will be changed. I'll also still be working with storyteller to make sure the Virtual Card Game is as enjoyable as possible. The team and I have already got some ideas in the works, so we'll keep you updated.

 

These changes are effective immediately. I just want to take the last few lines of this post and use it as a thank you - for all of your support and trust that you've had in me since I took over. If there are any issues you have regarding anything, XC or otherwise, I'm always open to discuss it.

 

Let me know what you guys think, and have a happy new year!

- Jesse

If all the oldies were here with us now, I don't think a single one would ever come to think I'd make it this far, but to be fair, they probably didn't think XC would last this long. I've been here for 10 years. I've had my ups and downs. Now I'm ready to help this place grow again. There we be a lot of challenges ahead and I'm hoping for the best outcome when we tackle said challenges.

 

I'll be doing mostly behind the scenes work. My first priority that I have for myself is getting an IRC server back up, whether we get a server or I host one myself or rent one. Otherwise, if any of you have some suggestions to toss around, let me or one of the staff know. If an IRC server is out of our capabilities, we have a backup plan.

Its funny when I think about how this is the THIRD forum that I got ended up with trying to bring back from the scraps. And its even funnier when I realize that I ain't even any sort of big deal when it comes to managing those backend stuff. I mean sure, I have SOME basic sense about it all and I did have an on/off thing with learning as much as I could, but like Jesse said, lack of manpower can always weigh ya down hard regardless of how high your ambitions want you to fly up and both of my previous forums died exactly because of this. So I'm glad that the big difference this time around is that it'll be an actual team which may actually collaborate on something for once instead of being left drifting about with no direction. (assuming that remains their motive)

 

 

Oh and the funniest part: much like Gren, me who came here 6 years ago only to discover online YGO wouldn't have expected to be doing this at all either. :P

 

Then again, I was a completely different person all those years back, miles apart from what I am now in both RL and online. Obviously we all were, but I digress.

 

 

Anyway back to the matter at hand, I'll be with Gren in getting us the IRC server we need and I'm also currently looking into ways for stabilizing the forum's functionality and fix whatever's broken. (which is hellishly plenty if you look at the mess in the backend... =___= )

 

Here's hoping this time I don't get possessed again by you-know-who and break something else.... >.>

If you guys need an IRC server then I may be of some assistance.  I could create a server within the week, but it doesn't seem like a wise strategy at this very moment.  The forum isn't attracting new users so the IRC server would just be a nostalgia hangout that I would be paying 10 dollars for.  See: Facebook, reddit, etc.  Your best bet right now is to relocate to a popular server like Rizon or some other massively popular IRC network.

Sounds cool.

Now that I'm back in the states, *hopefully* I'll start building that digital version of the virtual card game as I had promised.

 

In the mean-time, I think an average chatbox/shoutbox would serve our needs well enough for the time being, rather than an IRC server.

Then again, I've never actually been an IRC user, so I may simply be lacking when it comes to knowledge regarding its advantages.

 

Unrelatedly, my own new year's resolution is simply as follows:

有言実行

I think it's "to accomplish what has been said", or ~to fulfill promises~.

I do not understand.  Where is this far to which you've made?

From what I understand, Gren's really happy that he can give back to this place. I'm really glad. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Please, forgive me, for I still do not understand.  I do not understand how this is a place nor what it is that we're giving to it, as though it were an altar upon which to offer sacrifices rather than the remnants of our community. I am plagued with literality.

this "place" metaphorically is our community, a community who like to play games with each other be it Yu-Gi-Oh! or otherwise. he is happy that he is now in a position of power and able to give something better to the community that he's been a great contributor to for years now.
