RRM is going FRRRRREEEEEEE BIIIIIRRRRRDDDDD!!!

Postby JWat » Sun Aug 21, 2011 9:10 pm

Derp. Here it is, folks, about a year late. Us as staff have been talking, and we decided that Raw Rock Militia is finally opening registrations up to everybody.

A few quick things:

All new registrations will now have full access to all forums except for: mod/admin only forums, Exclusives, Man Cave and The Kitchen. I think we can all agree that this is fair.
So to new members that hopefully see this: you will NOT be able to see the exclusives forum unless you donate. Ya dig?

During some maintenance stuff to get this ready, I *might* have taken access from those forums away from people that it shouldn't have been taken from. Sorry maybe. If you suddenly are missing those forums, email me or post here or whatever so I can figure it out.

Old members: remember to be inviting and welcome any new folks that might come in. Don't be shame jerks. New members: before doing stuff, please introduce yourself here: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=22

Any questions? Concerns? Thoughts?

what are you going to do to "spread the word" about not only the forum, but its freeness?

Clayton: Yup. DJ TURN IT UP.
Seth: Nope. Yr banned.
Sara: I figured I'd just mention here that it was for sure happening, to give everyone a heads up and to respond to things before we make it official. It'll be all over our social profiles pretty soon, and Josh said he'd help spread the word.

Anyone else that wants to help is more than welcome to. If some of you wouldn't mind reblogging on Tumblr (when I post the announcement), that would help lots. Other than that, any way/anywhere you can think of.

Here's a thought, maybe we could offer an upgraded account to a new member that promotes us and our freeness the most? Say like, they reblog on Tumblr: 1 point. Reblog on Tumblr and post on Facebook: 1 + 2. Tumblr, Facebook, and twitter: 1 + 2 + 3. Etc.
Or maybe not the person that posts the most, but every point puts your name in a raffle to get the free account, so every additional site you post it to will increase your chances significantly.

maybe say get x amount of points free exclusives account instead of a contest maybe? also will this message board still be spam free (without making the mods delete stuff)?

Yeah, I thought the whole point of the donations was to eliminate all the spam and such

Yes, spam free. The registration process is tough for a bot to break, so no worries there. The way it works now is I have to manually approve every registration, but I guess I could just as easily make it automatic and look at the accounts later, I suppose. Still, there should be no bots getting through.

Donations were actually mostly because of some trolls on the old site that basically ruined things for everyone. It honestly wasn't even all that bad, but being that there are younger folks on this site as well, some kids and parents got very upset and Josh got some pretty angry emails.

I am too. Can I make Youtube videos play automatically when it's embedded to a site? The tumblr post won't be automatic but w/e.

Why? You have access to great Showbread stuff that lots of fans don't even know exist.
