Ever wondered what a particular user sounded like? Or you're bored, don't really feel like typing but still want to interact? I thought so, too. That's why we bring you the Inn's own TeamSpeak 3 server! All you need to connect is a functional microphone, preferably a headset, and TeamSpeak 3 from www.teamspeak.com. Once you have it installed and configured, simply connect to dragonsinn.tk - default ports, no password.
So if you ever wanted to hear that one voice behind a particular user, now you can! Hope to see all of you there someday!
So I've reiterated the rules and Ingwie is working like a champ to have them put in, but a part in there mentions tagging and sourcing the art in our profiles. Now, Ingwie is working on some code that lets us check these links for the information we want, but until that is live I have a few guidelines that if followed, would really help us - and would make us look good if artists do come snooping around to see if their art is used.
It is a matter of integrity, we don't want us, or our members to be seen as thieves as we do not condone this type of behaviour - and so that we look more professional for our users.
Truth be told, many artists don't mind that their art is being used for reference as long as people give them credit for it, and unfortunately a link to e621 really isn't that comprehensive even though it does have tags and usually a source link, but that does create another series of pages that we as staff have to go through. Thusly I offer y'all these few steps in a small tutorial.
What we are looking for is this: * Name of Artist * Source link that provides, and/or preferably leads to the artist's name/page * Preferably the name of the character's owner
So I make a profile of a creature, I use this picture of Drayk, drawn by Faint as my reference. There is no picture that I've been granted permission to use on E621, but let us assume that it was there As you would have been able to see in that page, underneath all the tags, in statistics, there is something next to Source: there's usually a link there. In this case it links to the FA post of the picture which usually has a bit more information about the picture than on FA, it is also... a bit more legit than E621 and generally looks a little better too.
The chains goes as follows: [E621 link] -> http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5316989/ -> http://www.furaffinity.net/user/drayk
The links we'd prefer to be used is the furaffinity/deviantart links that goes to the actual image, which links directly to the artist's gallery - and in the description you can see the commissioner's name, Drayk. You don't -have- to link to the character owner's page, it is prefered, I'm sure he would prefer it, but at least mention the fellow's name if you know of it.
In the end your source should look like this:
[Picture] Artist: Faint ( http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5316989/ ) - Character: Drayk ( http://www.furaffinity.net/user/drayk ) - This way you've sourced it back to the original submission which leads us directly to the artist, and you've led us to the owner of the character.
We hope that you'll help us keep your profiles, or in particular your picture references as well sourced as possible for future characters, and gold stars for those who go through the work to source their main characters too.
We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause you, but it is for your own, and our safety from angry artists - and nobody likes an angry artist.
If you need any help with sourcing the art you want to use, I volunteer to help you with the search if I have the time.
Sincerely, the staff.
If you are okay to eat some critique - lots of ranting actually - then you should read this page. Talk to me in the chat about it, if you want to.
I just realized something that I had previously forgotten... Google seems to preffer my old drachennetz.com domain over the current dragonsinn.tk one - I bet it is due to the .tk ending. So I have decided to give y'all a chance to peer around and throw suggestions at me whilst I am coding the new site.
Head to THIS link and look at the list. You can also try a new search and other variations or names that are close to the current one, and suggest them to me!
So if you ever feel bored (not like everyone happens to feel that way int he chat =) ...) then you can pick up on this and try it out.
Due to my impatient nature for wanting to test out the kicking/banning system, I have caused some problems. Therefore, I would like to take the time to say that I am sorry for any inconvenience I have caused for others. Especially Luke. As a moderator, I had felt that it was my duty to keep things in check. My biggest mistake on that day was I had not discussed things through with my other fellow moderators and administrators and instead went ahead with the test without telling anyone else but Luke. So on that absolutely embarrassing moment of hindsight, I look for forgiveness in my actions. Although I had the intention of helping out the Inn in mind, I did not think of the residents’ feelings at all, and for that rash offense, I am sorry.
That being said, I have no intention to drop, but in the future things I might tinker around with, I will inform others for permission for my antics and work with others instead of by myself.
As you may have noticed, we've been experiencing some network related issues lately. This isn't under our control as the hosters of this server seem to be having technical difficulties. All we can do is keep permanent backups and hope that this issue resolves itself. We do appologize for the inconvenience.
As you might have noticed, the site has been experiencing multiple network issues over the last two weeks. To fix this, the router of the server will be updated on june 4th, at midnight (EST). During this time, the site might be unavailable for about 2 hours as the router system is switched out. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, however it will benefit the actual network performance and should make the Inn alot more stable.
Now that the staff meeting is over, the following moderators have been choosen and set into action:
Furthermore, we will soon see some cosmetic changes, as I am adding:
- A rules page
- A page of "fun facts", or "fun rules".
- A form for sending complaints to the staff.
So, stay tuned on things!
Quick update: The meeting will be scheduled early saturday afternoon! An exact time is not set, yet.
Been a while since I posted here - but this is becoming more and more necessary.
Nobody of you probably knows - but in truth we actually have four moderators - from who only two are really active. These are currently:
Its a fact, that Snake is on rather rarely to never, which means that I have to talk about his status. Sapphy freely decided to drop down to a VIP and Lesia needs to be removed anyway; she is not going to return any time soon, that is her RL's fault.
This leaves only one moderator left: Ranshiin. Yikes! So what this means:
In the name of the Dragon's Inn, I am officially searching for two moderators.
For those that are new to that kind of "season", here is how it works:
- Send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject that will let me know that its about the Dragon's Inn staff registration. Something like this should work: Dragon's Inn staff application.
- In that email, make sure to let me know who you are! This is very important, otherwise I will just drop the email into my trashcan o-o.
- Answer the following questions in your email:
- Why would you like to register as a moderator? - What makes you a good moderator? - What do you think you can contribute to the inn - aka., what are you really good at that can help the inn evolve in one way or another?
Then, wait. Because during the next weekend, we will be voting for the new moderator. For that vote, we will have my sidekick Excel, thus all current - if they are going to be present - moderators and the VIPs that decide to come. The plan for the staff meeting itself will include some more topics than the voting itself - some things that concern the Inn are gong to be discussed too. Talk to your vip or staff friend, so they can bring in a topic that you would like to have discussed in the team - now is the chance to get that concern in!
CAUTION: I do not like to take staff applications via the chat! Please email it! That has to do wit the way I organize these kind of things and its mandatory for the housekeeping of the Inn.
A special moderator requirement during this search period is especially the following: We need a moderator that can cover past-european times! Somebody with a good time difference to Germany or the Uk will do, cause that is when Ran and Me go to bed - Excel too, sometimes at least... ;). But it's very important that these times are covered properly.
Now now! Let's flood the bird's inbox, right? :) I'll review your application, and we will see each of them during the meeting! So all that you write might become visible to the VIPs that join the meeting.
More information about the meeting will follow during this week. Stay tuned, stay warm~
