Clans Forum?

To the devs, and admins:

Is there a chance of getting a forum for FF clans? Nothing super-special, or anything...just an area where clans based in FF can post messages, and potential players can see what clans are available and their contact information. I'll offer to admin it, if you want me to.

I know that most league-clans have websites of their own, but it would be nice to have all the info available in a convenient place.
(Obviously, non-league clans would be welcome in the forum as well. I think it bad form to exclude clans just because they are of a more casual variety than super-serious).

This

AND

I would like to see Mapping expanded some.

Perhaps:

Mapping
Lua
Released Maps

Just to seperate things into specialties a bit more. Chat has 1 section... that should be fine, all offtopic posts can fit into one area. General has six, more than enough and each is focused where it should be. But Mapping has *1* section? It is much, much more complex than that and I hate seeing legimate questions getting bumped down because there is so much activity there.

Lua is its own beast, for sure... it should definitely have its own section. Mapping can just be for general stuff. At the very least, Released Maps is a must. I would like to see it run like the beta forums (each FF official map has its own thread, and no new threads are to be made...). When a map is released, a moderator should create a thread for it and basically have it so people can not create new threads in that area. It would clean up and organize discusison on released maps.

Not a forum section, lets make a web site so we can get direct downloads to a commonly used web site such as fpsbanana or something. Have someone on the Dev team to be responsible for uploading these maps to the map page, so when someone comes out with a map, they have to request that it be added to the map download page, and after the Dev plays it, or reviews it to make sure it's a completed map, he can then upload it to the server.

that way we don't have to scour the internet for new FF maps or search through the pages of the forum and hope we can find a working download link. I hate broken links.

I'm sorry but that just made me laugh! Reall though, that's a great idea, but I think they should outsource within the forums for a web-master...I think they are already slipping with the amount of stuff they have to do.

Hey, I'm a webmaster. Just give me a CMS and what you want it to look like.

I'm not THAT good, but before I go disparaging against my skillz, I don't mind working on it for free, however the time factor would probably hinder my ability to come up with something quickly.

Exactly. I've gotten info on some clans, but so far, none that are intending on league play.

Go to the league sites...

STA: http://ff.sta-league.org/news.html
UGC: http://www.ugcleague.com/home_ff8.cfm
TFL: http://ff.tfleague.com/

Can't find a site for ADL though yet. ):

Problem is that even there the activity is pretty dead...I think until the leagues start something up then it's not going to be worth it.

But if we add something here then maybe the clans can get together and start a riot or something to get the leagues to be more active!

eh him...I'm pretty sure I am the ONLY person that isn't an admin who has suggested anything in the FF forums on UGC, but you guys over there dropped the idea until "FF 1.1 is released."

So get on it and get a league going 4est...since you seem to be the only UGC admin who is even looking at the FF section of the forums over there!

My Thread In the UGC Forums

P.S. If you look at This Thread I also tried to encourage the FF clans here to go there and give some input so that this thing would happen...but alas no one listened to me!

The UGC staff is more than aware of the FF issue. It will happen soon... don't worry. Too bad the rest of the community is not 1/2 as vocal as you...

...

Actually, too bad you are not 1/2 as vocal as you.
