Do to numerous questions/requests over the past week or so, Flisk and I have relooked at access to profiles on forums and opened them back up.

Some things are still closed, i.e. Titles, Polls, attachments. But the rest should be changable by all.

Please do not abuse it. We don't want to have to close it down again just to stop a few.

As promised.

Here is my plan for event dates for the remainder of this year. This only covers the main game events, not anything minor the sysops may do on a spur of the moment.
Reminder: these are ALT-2 only events

Easter - Apr 7-11 05
Halloween - Oct 27-31 05
Thanksgiving - Nov 24-28 05

I know Easter event is after Easter, but with the current event running already and Easter coming early this year, I decided to spread them out a little bit.

You've all been waiting for it.

A new event has been added to Drakkarzone.

I fondly call it "The Back to School Special"

Now what does this event entail?
Did you really think I was going to tell you? <Grin>

Where is the event?
Nork Alt 2 from today (29 Aug till Monday 5 Sep)

How do I participate?
The only thing I will say is to look at the name of the event and figure a few things out.


Oh yea, Have fun

OK, I've discussed with Brad and he's agreed to another interview.

So we get some answers/comments that you all are looking for. I'm open to suggestions for questions.

Please no questions that are player specific, it has to relate to all.

Send your questions to mars@drakkarzone.com
use subj: INTERVIEW QUESTION

I won't promise I'll use it, but it will give me ideas where to head/lean

OK,

It's update time again.

I am working on updating the ingame help file again.

I am also working on updating the gold tiles for the school

If you have input on something that is missing from either or requires a change, please email mars@drakkarzone.com with your input. When commenting on the helpfile, please look at this file/link first to ensure your suggestion wasn't already included in the previous update
http://www.kingdomofdrakkar.com/help

Please remember, these are not the end all information about the game, they will not provide quest info/solutions, ect. Just basic general game knowledge type of stuff

Added a couple of new forum areas, one for classes and one for guild info.
As part of this, the order of the headings under KoD General Infomation changed to better align the different areas.

Well, as Brad mentioned in another thread,

I'm looking into a new forums. Want to find one that will import everything we have here so posts and users are not lost.

The problem is openBB just isn't supported anymore. We need something more user friendly and admin friendly.

If you have thoughts/ideas on something, drop me an email.

Continued Omni's training

http://kingdomofdrakkar.com/forums/read.php?TID=6632

Killed him yesterday and today to teach him the folly of going afk in game. Been trying to teach this to Tigger as well. We shall see if Omni picks up faster than she has <VEG>

Next Event is St. Patrick's Day. Easter event will be in April due to timing. Don't want to run 2 events back to back
