Re: Concept Idea for activity

Referencing the how to increase activity thread: What creates activity? If you have 40 players in the league, and we change textures and team colors, we still have 40 players in the league. Those things, (though a visual change) do not increase activity. Players committed to playing in the league a...

Re: Ruling admins

No confusion here. In that case, we have: GU - Bullet Catcher, kierra Duc - quantum dot Because BC is also a hoster, I think it's fair to have allejo and brad as the hosters that vote for the GU rep. All 3 hosters would vote yes/no to quantum dot. I know this process seems like a pain, but I feel it...

Re: Ruling admins

It is important for this merger to proceed and become reality for the sake of league play. I do not see all the gu admins transferring over to ruling admin board as that would simply be a duplication of gu league board. Brad has already declined in this thread to be in new league admin board as well...

Re: Concept Idea for activity

What is the most important reason you are a league member? * to play official matches * to play fun matches * to chat with other league members I'd make it a "choose one" type. It's honestly a combination of the three, with chatting being an important portion. The one thing that leagues have that i...

Re: Admin/cops:

mofo has hidden admins and it works well....because as all gu nick changers know, it's easy to change hidden nick frequently on bz forums. Mofo hidden admins do it all the while.
Now whether a hidden wants to do that is up to them.....but it is doable to remain unknown.

Re: This Forum's Availability - Post League Launch

Option 2: make it public so that the bz community sees that this was a group effort on the part of many active players taking a role. That it was not a select few admins deciding things themselves. I feel its important for transparency. I don't really see sensitive or personal information shared. Cr...

Re: Concept Idea for activity

our league site is still missing some critical features that we need, so we should really ask them to focus on those projects first so we can get this thing off the ground.

Concept Idea for activity

With the consolidation of the leagues, there is still the need to include players (teamless and inactive team members) into league gameplay. For those who recall zaphod’s BzMatchball set up: 2 teams: Team A and Team B....where ALL players are assigned to one of these teams (in a balanced manner usin...

Zelo scores are back.

Zelo was removed from visibility for short time only as strayer was contemplating working on it, etc. Nevertheless, internally the ZELO/SELO score/s still existed and was used for the Hix Double Challenge in March.
