New HvK website?

    Pros
    • Better integration with games, including: Minecraft/World of Warcraft/BF3 (it supports more as well, but these 3 I know for a fact let you link your account)
    • Cleaner look. Much more organized and the ability to organize posts better.
    • Actual chatroom (We'll have the shoutbox still, but this will be an actual chatroom you can use).
    • Chat with members on the website (Kind of like facebook's PM system)
    • Easier payment management (You'll also get a special title/look to your username for donating instead of just extra access)
    • We can give people the proper titles so they don't "lose" anything (postcounts/posts)

    Cons
    • You'll lose your postcount
    • You'll have to make a new account
    For some, the cons are pretty big, but honestly the upgrade would be completely worth it. Not only does the site look much better, but the functionality of it for those who enjoy posting is much better as well (Such as a quick reply feature).
    [/list]

    You can also use your minecraft character as your avatar, or even your BF3/WoW character. You can also "logout" of that account, and just use an avatar that you uploaded. From what I've seen, I can also integrate my twitter into it, so you can get the latest news on havok without having to open up twitter or even follow me.

    This is something I want the community to decide in. If you're one of those with a lot of postcounts, I'm sorry but there is absolutely no way to port over your postcounts. However, I will be able to link back to this site and keep it as an "archive". I can also make anyone with private first class or higher that rank until they get their post count up. From there I would let the automation take over and you'd rank up as you would normally here.

    I'm not going to do this unless I know the majority is on board with it, with this change we can grow and get our name out there even more. We are by far one of the most successful communities in terms of behavior towards each other considering the number of gamers we have. I would love to see this continue and watch us dominate the gaming world.[/list][/list] <- shit is being retarded.

    I am completely up for this. I think getting a fresh start on everything  would be great. In a way, it would be sort of like a purge. Even though we lose out postcounts, that doesn't worry me at all. I'm pretty sure that will be made up in no time. =)

    I am fuck all for this. Post count doesnt bother me since i hardly post, but just getting the forums more organized would probably get me to come on here more.

    the only guys that are going to lose something are the minecraft dudes!
    (i don't have the game but i follow the threads and i saw about the post counts and the privileges you get from higher amount of posts)

    i'm up for it!

    now i only need to get to 100 before they shut us down.... muhahahahahaah



    P.S. does this mean new forum, new threads, all previous ones erased?

    All previous ones will be stored here still so people can go back and look through if they want to. The new site will be all new threads though.

    No beta for this one, if everyone is down for it, we'll switch over instantly as soon as I configure the new ones =)

    I think the new site looks awesome, it will be worth it. 

    Besides which it won't be hard to work your post count back up.

    Like it's said above the only downside is with Minecraft, not being able to use redstone is gonna be a bit of a buzzkill and now I'll have to get back up to 100 posts without spamming. Oh woe is me...

    The point is, I as an individual or anyone else can't tell you how to run your website Tommy, you do what you think is right. Those that don't like it, particularly the people who didn't like the heroes plugin, should go drink some cement.

    Yeah, I really liked the heroes plugin. I actually spent all night recreating a profession tree to make those who didn't like it happy, then I found out it wouldn't support multiworld and that is the biggest feature of the new server.
