Wow :\

Used to fight him a lot in classic, he had also a lower leveled pure Kryptik where he made my word 7 castle days unpleasant.

I think he posted some kill pics here a while ago, very sad to see him go. RIP.

Always nice to meet the fans :)

1) what do pinned stuff have to do with freaking transparency


I'm assuming with the bold you want to point out my poor spelling, yet you don't use capitals nor punctuation marks. Sorry English isn't my maternal language, I do my best to type as good as I can.
I wanted to say that it's always nice to know what the staff is working on, in a topic. It's also nice to know what the CD users want so the staff can fill the needs of the users. And if users know what they are working on, they won't say "tip it is dying" but have more patience.


2) laikrob was a staff member and if i'm looking through this boards history right, 10x the staff member you were; pinned topics from (good) retired staff members dont seem to be a problem anywhere else does it so why does it bother you now...ican guess...but more on that later down


Not really sure what your point is here, yet Laikrob is indeed a far better staff member then I am. I complimented here multiple times (I'm sure you have read my post on her goodbye topic) and I told in my previous posts that she's one of the few people that I worked under who really were outstanding. Yet I also shown my admiration for Y Guy, Kim & Joe since I think they are great. That doesn't mean I can't have an opinion.


3) question about the tourney looks like it was already answered here how come your not paying attention lol


Since when is that an answer? As I said on my post it's - in my opinion - important to give people an idea if there will be a tourny in the winter of 2011 or if it's more a long term project for the spring of 2012.


4) you say you dont play rs and im assuming youre also not in a clan yet you post here like youre a part of the community when looking through topics i havent seen you post in months...in fact it only seems to happen that you pop up when you smell some drama....but more on that later


Funny that comes from you, you registered today (welcome to tip it ! ) and start to flame me out of nowhere. You accuse me of not being active, yet you weren't even registered before today. When I browse I don't post a lot, I read these forums weekly out of interest. Funny how you accuse me multiple times of not reading trough topics, of not being active yet you weren't even around when I was a staff member so how can you know what I did or didn't do? Do you ever see me brag with something?


5) youre talking about staff and you see 'qualified candidates' yet you admit you havent been around and youre not active....huh


I'm not active in the clan world anymore no. Yet I read these forums, and as you certainly will know there aren't many frequent posters here. So yeah, the few that post I know.


6) clan memberlists, what? you must have really been in hibernation, why would anyone waste the manpower to make memberlists when runehead (funding through RSC/curse) and Jagex (infinite resources) have done it already


As you certainly know as well informed person Michael West (the runehead owner back then) said if tip.it would make great memberlists Runehead would probably close. Back then it was an opportunity to get ahead of other clansites, and if the main coder didn't have time to finish the project (they had a few people on it, I don't think the tip it crew would "waste" resources on something that would "certainly fail")


and lastly

7) you say no one around here has a constructive opinin well i sure hope youre counting yourself amongst those people because nothing you said was constructive; it just sounds like youre an old staff member who likes to backseat lead and so out of touch that nothing you say holds any relevance

nice job turning a promotional topic for the one person it seems like actually still gives a damn about this place into your soapbox btw stay classy gamerr


I have no idea who you are, but if you know me from the past and have a problem with me it's always fun to know your original RSN/forumname. And again, you base your opinion on me on 1 post - classy ! Not sure where I'm not constructive, I'm sure that if my opnion is worthless they will ignore it.

Ok...

Anyway:
I was always a fan of transparancy. If I look at the clan forums I only see two - if I may say - seriously inactive stickies:
Improvement topic - only 5 posts in a year, hardly any suggestions
TWR Suggestion topic - last post 07.11.2010

I don't know, I kinda expected a topic made by a staff member with questions on how do the current visitors see the future, what are they suggesting, ...
Also, oppurtunities to maybe give an activity boost aren't updated/follow up'd on:
Tip it tournament - will there be one in 2011 ? I assume a tourny takes a lot of preparation so if that hasn't started yet maybe say "Next spring 2012 a big tourny" or w/e. If you keep users posted they will frequentely check these boards to see what the plan is, and maybe drop by the CD and reply on a few topics.

I know it's easy to not do anything myself - since I don't play RuneScape anymore so I wouldn't be useful - but there are a few simple things to do in my honest opinion that don't take so much work. Update users on the projects the clan staff is working on, and do that atleast every month. If a newsletter is too much work, just a small topic on CD then with the activities these days. You could make new fresh discussion topics about specific problems (e.g. : do you want a TWR tourny? do you want a tip it tourny , ... and make polls in those topics, always attracts more users) Don't do such things in the conclave, but in the CD forums. I'd personally hire 5-10 extra staff members (I know maybe there aren't a lot of people around but when I look around here I see like 4-5 potential candidates (ofcourse I'm not informed if some of them already declined a position) ) and prepare them for something. A tip it tourny still in the winter of 2011, clan memberlists, a complete revamp of tip.it, or a big TWR tourny where the winner clan gets a month advertising on tip it's front page, I don't know what's possible.

However, I think many of the tip it CD users are a bit uninterested also. If I see something, I'd make a topic about it to discuss something. Apart from a few here, most of the users only complain and never hand in a constructive suggestion. Though to form a great clan discussion then when some people only seem to be interested in tip it when they don't have to cooperate and be innovative themselves and basicly sit back and jump on the success train.

This is just my opnion eh, I just don't like dancing around the problem and chit chatting about irrelevant stuff. Yeah Danny sometimes seems a bit cynic but I don't know, maybe he just wants an active CD and thinks there isn't done enough at the moment. I'm not saying we all should become negative and shout out that tip.it's clan discussion is dead, but I don't know maybe a few small things could make a huge difference.

I have posted constructive suggestions in the past. Maybe in stead of crying about aw a reg member thinks this section is dead why not try and fix it, clans and discussions strive on drama btw so you can't get everyone all nice with each other.

Everytime you go around promoting some one new its like here you fix it idc anymore and they dont even do anything with their rank but moderate and more moderation turns people away.


I know you did, however I don't browse these forums a lot anymore. However I think this topic isn't the place to vent your worries in my opinion. Kevin deserves to be congratulated without being questioned when he didn't even have a chance to proof himself.

I'm not saying I disagree with you, but there isn't a quick fix. To "revive" a clan section you need a lot of hardworking people who spend a lot of time on thinking out ideas, trying new things. There's a chance that all that work is for nothing, but there's also a chance that it will succeed. I'm not saying Kevin will turn things around, but he's extremely active I see and he tries to make topics - even when hardly anybody else does. I know it's "useless" in the eyes of many people, but if really nobody posts here anymore then the clan section is truly dead.

I'm not going to comment on the current clan staff, but I doubt the situation is different from that a few years ago. A lot of great staff members left the clan staff, and I personally think they should hire a bunch of really active members now, and indeed try to rebuilt it step by step. What did change is the clan situation, since I'm unaware of the current clan activity I don't know if it's realistic to dream of a super active clan section.

Personally I always had a lot of problems with the hierarchy on tip.it. The admins really supported the clan section, certainly when Daniel and Laila were in charge, but there was so little out of the box thinking. I'm not sure if it came from upperhand, but it was hard to get an - maybe risky - innovative idea done. We once had the chance to make some sort of runehead, and instead of putting heaps of people with tech knowledge on it (because honestly, if that was good tip.it could be the biggest clan section now) they just let it die. I also never understood the idea behind promoting clan moderators to super moderators. I think it's a good idea to promote clan moderators like Kim, Y Guy or Joe who did a great job but give them a "higher" rank excusivly for the clan section. Now they spend a lot of time on moderating other boards (I could be wrong but I thought a super moderator was a "general" moderator) instead of having the full focus on the clan section. Times with low activity are the time the clan section needs people (like the CL's) who exclusivly are working on how to revive it. This is in no way a finger point to the current clan forum activity of Kim, Y Guy or Joe - but it's just something I never understood. Because honestly the only person that was able to do that - and that I worked under - was Laila.

I never had the end responsability ofcourse, and maybe the not-clan admins were afraid tip.it's clan section would become too big and the rest of the forum would be undermined, I don't know. However, with the right people and motivation a lot is possible here. I saw that myself a few years ago when I thought the clan section would slowly but steadidly grow to a new dimension, however for an unkown reason that growth stagnated.

Edit: now I'm doing it myself to discuss this matter in a wrong topic. This post can be moved elsewhere if it isn't suited.
