      New Community Volunteer Opportunity   04/29/2017

      With the looming Steam release, we are anticipating many new players to the game. This is great for all of us, and it's important that we retain as many as we can. With that in mind, we'd like to enlist players to help with the inevitable questions asked in the forums. Ideally, gameplay questions are asked and answered in-game, but it's not always easy or convenient to answer questions while playing. A Gameplay Support Forum would be a good place for those who want to help. We are now accepting volunteers for the Rat Patrol, who will provide correct and consistent info to new players in the Forums. The more new players we retain, the better it is for the game and the biggest hurdle in player retention is grasping the complexities of this game. If you are interested, send me a PM.

      Squad Leaders Contact GVONPAUL OR Dodger for Squad Forums   05/18/2017

      Soldiers!

      We are seeking Squad Leaders to volunteer their squads to help us test the upcoming Squad Forums system. This system will integrate squads who wish to participate into a self-sustained "forum within a forum." You will be able to add members to your squad, assign permissions, and create forums/calendar events on your own. The idea behind this system is part of our commitment to support squads as a integral part of our community. This service will be offered free of charge to all squads of World War II Online upon launch. Our goal is to offer all of the services a squad off-site forum can offer but free of charge and tied in to our existing forum service. So what do you need tested? We need willing volunteers to test the whole system - make forums, post threads, assign permissions, etc. The idea is to have several squads giving it a test run to point out any flaws before we launch it publicly. What are the requirements? We are ideally looking for medium to large squads - Ideally ten people or so plus, but smaller squads feel free to apply - and a willingness to use our platform. It's important to note (as of now - these may be included at a later date) we are unable to convert posts from a private forum if your squad previously used one, and you (or your XO's and recruiters) will need to assign individual members permissions. It is entirely possible that in the future this system will be automatically linked to the game's squad roster, but as of now developer priorities are elsewhere (1.37 and steam, w00t!) How do I sign up? PM me ( @Dodger ) on the forums, or email me at dodger@playnet.com - Please indicate your squad name and how many members you have. I will get back to you with more instructions.

  1. Was it easier because you just loaded the community site and then the new articles were just right there in the middle of the screen? The tricky thing with that style of site is that it made it very difficult to "sell" the game to new prospecting players that are coming to the website for the first time or to come find information about the game. That's the reason we had two separate websites for a while, one being the "selling" site and the other being the "community" site. Combining those two into a single sight is a tricky thing do to. I decided to have a specific menu just for the community because you all should be more hardy in finding the information that yall need. We have to have a WWII Online face to the website as a whole. There are the latest articles on the homepage, they are just a few rows down from the top. So if a player doesn't want to navigate over one page, they can just scroll down and see if there was something new posted. Any suggestions?
  2. A few weeks ago I added the categories and the most read stories to the News area. It does make that area look a bit wordy, do you think moving those things down into their own row will help to break up all the words? The wordiness all comes down to how they create the articles, if they do not use any imagery to spice up the intro to the articles, that's all we get. I also added links to the Categories, Featured Articles, and the RSS Feed. I'm not sure if you're aware but the Featured Articles page shows that last five articles that have been highlighted. Also, the RSS feed gives you the ability to get emails sent to you whenever there is a new article posted.
  3. a group of crack shots could really shut down CAS/CAP over a target! at what range do you think you're averaging when connecting?
  4. After Steam is when other things will begin to be looked into again. I've got an idea how to currently track RDP bombing but we shall see if it works out.
  5. you do realize it's spelled "Xoom" with an "X" and not a "Z", right?
  6. we're all here and reading the reactions to these changes and we're weighing the options on what can be done.
  7. thanks for the input yall, we're good for the time being.
  8. Just something that shows the specific branch at hand and also isn't changed from what the game actually looks like. I still need to add a section where people can see the different article categories. thanks for the ideas We had a discussion about that very thing...I actually like the current logo as it looks more "war like" but the truth is that we just don't have a horizontal logo in the yellow color.
  9. Perfect, I've updated them all. This is why fresh eyes are a good thing, I must have read through everything at least three times and still missed things... Bloo is a Retired Rat and Scotsman falls under the production team. Thanks!
  10. I'd planned on taking some new screenshots so that we don't run into that issue. Also, some of the images are Axis heavy so I'd like to take them so that they show all the countries. thanks!
  11. secure.wwiionline.com what specific URL are you trying to use?
  12. As some of you noticed, we've been working on getting a new WWII Online website up and running in order to replace both the battlegroundeurope.com and .net sites. Tonight we were able to make the changeover. We are aware of a few issues, like the second row for the "Support" link at the top of the page on some screens. We expect to have a few other issues with redirects while the kinks get worked out but it should mostly be up and running smoothly. Let us know what you think and what could be better. ps. the site isn't fully "finished". We plan on adding a bit more info/images to the site
  13. I've passed on the recommendation to the forums team as the Comm-Dev team doesn't support the forums.
  14. The new WWII Online website is actually being worked on at this time. got any suggestions for it?
