New Rule Enforcement Methods

By Ningamer on July 12, 2011

NOTE: These methods are only being tested, and may be changed an tweaked to work better.

You may have noticed that in the last few days some members on Victory Road have had their avatars and signatures taken away, and their usergroup changed to "purgatory". This is part of a new method of enforcing the rules more efficiently that the staff are testing:

Infraction Points now have a purpose. In case you don't know, whenever a rule is broken and a moderator deems it worthy of an infraction, an infraction is given out with a number of points tied to it; The more serious the offence the more points (From 0 points to 4 points, with a moderator being able to give more points should he/she feel the offence is more serious). Once a certain amount of time has passed, these points expire and no longer count towards your total amount of active infraction points.

The new system that has been put in place works around infractions and infraction points. Should your total amount of active infraction points reach 2 or more points you will be put in purgatory, where many privileges are taken away (Such as avatars and signatures) and all your posts must first be moderated before they appear on the forums. Moderated posts are still subject to the rules, so if any violations are made within these posts, you may still receive an infraction.

When enough of your points expire to take you below 2 active infraction points your account will become a regular account again.

Should your total amount of active infraction points reach or exceed 5 points you will be banned from Victory Road. As with purgatory, when enough points expire to take you below 5 active infraction points you will be unbanned and put into purgatory or become a regular user again, depending on the amount of active infraction points you still have left.

We hope this new method of dealing with troublemakers will make Victory Road a nicer and friendlier place! Please post any questions or comments below.

VictoryBlogs

By KingOfKYA on July 6, 2011

So hear is the deal:
I have setup WordPress and allowed registration. Now for now consider it a beta that may be removed at a later time. However if there is interest it will stay running. I am just trying to gauge the interest in Vblogs. We will also need a few themes done but not quit yet if anyone wants to do that let me know.

Reg here.
vrblog.org

Comments Please.

Edit:
Also you get a URL like

What is wordpress? Esentally MSword interface for a webpage(s).

From WP
Quote:Key Features
WordPress Pages — Pages allow you to manage non-blog content easily, so for example you could have a static "About" page that you manage through WordPress. For an idea of how powerful this is, the entire WordPress.org site could be run off WordPress alone. (We don't for technical mirroring reasons.)

WordPress Links -- Links allow you to create, maintain, and update any number of blogrolls through your administration interface. This is much faster than calling an external blogroll manager.

Cross-blog communication tools— WordPress fully supports both the Trackback and Pingback standards, and we are committed to supporting future standards as they develop.

Comments — Visitors to your site can leave comments on individual entries, and through Trackback or Pingback can comment on their own site. You can enable or disable comments on a per-post basis.

Full user registration — WordPress has a built-in user registration system that (if you choose) can allow people to register and maintain profiles and leave authenticated comments on your blog. You can optionally close comments for non-registered users. There are also plugins that hide posts from lower level users.

Password Protected Posts — You can give passwords to individual posts to hide them from the public. You can also have private posts which are viewable only by their author.

Easy installation and upgrades — Installing WordPress and upgrading from previous versions and other software is a piece of cake. Try it and you'll wonder why all web software isn't this easy.

Easy Importing — We currently have importers for Movable Type, Textpattern, Greymatter, Blogger, and b2. Work on importers for Nucleus and pMachine are under way.

XML-RPC interface — WordPress currently supports an extended version of the Blogger API, MetaWeblog API, and finally the MovableType API. You can even use clients designed for other platforms like Zempt.

Workflow — You can have types of users that can only post drafts, not publish to the front page.

Typographical niceties — WordPress uses the Texturize engine to intelligently convert plain ASCII into typographically correct XHTML entities. This includes quotes, apostrophes, ellipses, em and en dashes, multiplication symbols, and ampersands. For information about the proper use of such entities see Peter Sheerin's article The Trouble With Em ’n En.

Intelligent text formatting — If you've dealt with systems that convert new lines to line breaks before you know why they have a bad name: if you have any sort of HTML they butcher it by putting tags after every new line indiscriminately, breaking your formatting and validation. Our function for this intelligently avoids places where you already have breaks and block-level HTML tags, so you can leave it on without worrying about it breaking your code.

Multiple authors — WordPress’ highly advanced user system allows up to 10 levels of users, with different levels having different (and configurable) privileges with regard to publishing, editing, options, and other users.

Bookmarklets — Cross-browser bookmarklets make it easy to publish to your blog or add links to your blogroll with a minimum of effort.

Ping away — WordPress supports pinging Ping-O-Matic, which means maximum exposure for your blog to search engines.
There’s much more, but these are the highlights. If there's something that you really want, submit a request on the support forums and there's a good chance someone will whip it up for you.

By AuraKshatriya on June 24, 2011

In commemoration of the upcoming simultaneous releases of both 14th Pokémon movies, two new C-Gear skins will be available to download for Japanese players, beginning on July 13th, and ending on October 4th of this year. The skins feature Zekrom and Reshiram, respectively. However, the skin you are able to obtain depends on which Pokémon you first put to sleep and bring to the Eind Oak Dream Island. A Victini Poké Doll is also being made available in commemoration for the aformentioned theatrical releases, however, it will require a password to be obtained.

Server maintenance

By Cat333Pokémon on June 19, 2011

As you may be able to tell, the server has been under maintenance. It appears like the network configuration has been incorrectly setup, so KingOfKYA and the HiVelocity techs are currently working to fix it up. Please be patient during this time.

Thank you.
