08C's Transformation
« on: August 20, 2016, 08:23:51 PM »
The 08C Discord server is currently going through some radical changes. It will be one of SwapShop's official Discord servers.

It's in development, so don't expect anything marvelous, yet.

Chaotic and too many voice channels.

I apologize for the lack of activity and planning. I've been focusing most of my mental energy on education. Please be patient. ;) But since a few people aren't helping me with the servers I'll probably have to put a lot more energy and time today or at least this week.

There are currently only two more things left on my list before the servers are ready for SS to advertise and support them in the in-game servers and here on the forums. I've had to do most of the work with the permissions and general set-up. I hope I don't have to do the rules and info page by myself as well.

This labor day weekend I want to get the servers completely ready for SS to support. It's already functioning but I want to flesh out the rules and make sure the Mee6 bot is capable and suitable for the servers' needs. I'm currently skeptical of the bot and I'm considering switching to a bot with more customization features, better censor capabilities, and cooler shtuff. ;)

So the servers didn't get finished. Apparently Blood decided to work with me yesterday on what I wanted us to do weeks ago. I suppose I'll to have to wait three months from now before we do what I wanted us to do yesterday. :| I should just do what we discussed yesterday and then just go with my gut on the rules and info. We'll just iterate on everything. Slowly.

If the Discord channels are "functional" or at least able to allow players to connect without everything breaking, I would suggest (Blood or Psy or even Death) posting the links to the servers on the TF2SS home page. Best way to get people  into the Discord servers. Otherwise, very few would find them here in this specific forum post.
However, if it's not ready, then obviously don't post it to the front page.
Can't wait until it is ready though.

Yeah, I know. Or at least, soon enough.

Ya, the concern I have is some of the small details. That and BloodRain has excellent ideas for securing and automating the servers. We could just go with what we have; however, there's some ideas I feel inclined to follow through with and I don't have all the time in the world. I like the whole idea of training people to micro-manage then have a bot make things easier. In a lot of respects I also really like just having people micro-manage without a bot.

Unfortunately with your proposed approach we will have to teach admins how to do all of the work before the bot's server is realized and its code gets finished. Whether that's my job to code or someone else's is entirely in the air as well.

Releasing the servers as of right now would be fine; however, we could miss some pretty important and nice quality of life changes. We really need to iterate and I suppose a way to get myself, Blood, and others more involved in this iterative process would unfortunately mean releasing the Discord servers as they are. I'll probably just draw up some simple rules and info then set it as the pending channels' only image.

Again, it will be a iterative process within a group. It almost seems to me like most of the work is falling towards me. The problem with that is efficiency. So I kind of have to pull this card. ::) I thought I'd just let people know what position I'm in. Typically I would just pull these kinds of cards without people really knowing my thought process and what not because... Well- gotta own it, gotta work it, gotta serve it, gotta try harder. Not many people do that these days. I'm not sure if it's an ethical issue, ignorance, just plain availability, or something outside the latter. Regardless, there's always improvement somewhere. Let's work on that and these servers.

The mentioned instant invites above have expired! Here are the new links:

The servers are still technically in development so changes will be present. Enjoy! :D
