1. Vote For Page
I’ve removed the entire thing >.<
One, because a lot of people seem to not like it. Some viewers argued that it defeats the purpose of Vintage Gold, because we would all quit if all of the good items had been released, destroying Fantage’s business. Well, that would have never happened anyway, as described in my next point…
Two, because it’s futile. I’ve concluded that Fantage pretty much ignores our votes and releases the most wanted items once in a while, just to keep our interest from drying up, as Lady Fantage suggested. I think a more useful page would be how to be smart when it comes to Vintage Gold.
Three, I feel like even if Fantage was truthful and released the items we most voted for, I doubt there would be enough people from this blog voting. Well, that doesn’t matter anyway, our votes don’t do anything.
2. XAT Bot
One of our XAT users, Pink, has VERY generously offered to get us an XAT bot, so the chat can be monitored at all times, especially at night, where I have been hearing complaints due to the lack of mods.
I’m still trying to figure out how to buy it and install it, the steps are really confusing… I’m planning to get it on Friday, when all of my homework is done.
I’m guessing that some people will complain about the bot, and I know exactly why. They know that by having a bot, then there’s no chance that I will add a new mod. More specifically, I don’t add them as a mod.
And that’s just selfish. The sole purpose of being a mod is to protect the chat. If the bot is going to do that, and you hate on it, then that means you never wanted to keep the chat safe in the first place; you just wanted a superior position.
So please. No complaints. It will keep the chat safe, as all of you have been wishing. I’m not quite sure about the reason behind those wishes, but I sure hope it wasn’t because you were hinting at me to make you mod.
And make sure to thank Pink when you see her, she’s the one with the awesome pink icon with the Santa hat on it c:
3. Sticky Notes
I’ve mentioned this in the Weekly Announcements already, and you’ve probably noticed yourself too. I’ve discovered a new feature of wordpress that allows me to make these pretty little boxes of different colors, that I like to call sticky notes.
I’ve made it so different colors mean different things, to make the blog easier to read and more appealing. Here’s the guide!
Blue sticky notes are for links
Yellow sticky notes are for small notes and tips
Green sticky notes are for added updates
Red sticky notes are for really important stuff that you should read
The All Fantage Item List pages uses all 4 of these, so you can see them as examples.
You can use them if you want, I don’t own them, but please don’t ask how I did it. For one, it’s very complicated and requires a bit of HTML coding in the Text editor, which I don’t quite have time for to explain. And two, if everyone had this, it won’t be unique anymore!
This is another reason why you should experiment for yourself on WordPress; you learn cool new things about it that nobody uses! So start experimenting, there are so many things that so many people don’t know about on WordPress!
That’s all the announcements I can think of for now, if I have any more, I’ll add it on a handy-dandy green sticky note!
