not sure if anyone reads my journal, but this was too good not to share for those who do read it.....thoughts???? biggrin if you have to ask what it is, then you won't be as excited as I am. I've been working hard to get this on the table for the last 8 months, but all the work was done by the hands of diversaurus, dev. extraordinaire
Whee, I'm in several guilds whose owners have been eagerly awaiting this feature~! whee
Good job, team; I can hardly wait!
I don't use guilds...much at all, but wh00t! Good job! heart
This looks great. Glad to see what kind of restrictions are being considered for such a system as well.
Interesting... So announcements will cost gold? Will it come directly out of the guild funds? or will it come from the poster's personal funds?
Well, it looks great anyway. biggrin
I do read your entires! 3nodding
And I did not get the gold stuff: If you've 2 members you'll have to pay 5 gold or every 2 member included you pay 5 gold?
I hope this doesn't sound corny but Your hard work is worth it. I hope you are proud of it as the users are proud of you.
Thank you for the wonderful things you help with. It might not be as "out there" as an EI (For lack of a better explanation of what I am attempting to say) but looking at the comments so far there are people who notice. HAVE AN AWESOME DAY!
I read them, too! Well, with the exception of some of the more recent ones due to my internet failure for the past month... XP
On-topic: Group announcements! Group announcements! GROUP ANNOUNCEMENTS! =D
Yeah, the one thing I have been waiting for in guilds. blaugh
Very nice. cool I'm not active in guilds, but I'm sure there's a great many people who will go nuts for this.
»ĘмǿЯέжĨç~ÞĨмþ« oh my god! I think I just had a heart attack when I saw this~ heart
I HAS AN AUTO-FORMAT TOO! SEE?
Yes, yes, OMG YES!!! Seriously, this makes me just about cry tears of joy. rofl
Thank you! Thank you so much!!!biggrin
heartheartheart YYEEEeeee!!!!!! thank you so much its going to be so usefull <3 i have been waiting and hoping for this feature for years this is so cool, *can i hug you?? pleaseeeeeeeeeee *HUGS
The guild owners will die of joy when they see this ♥ (I hope they don't though xD)
Surprised so many people read your journal?
WTF? Guild PMs?! Who the devil would use this?! scream
I wish I knew about this before I posted in the site feedback! Awesome job! Seriously, hats off to you!
-rips clothes off-
I don't understand, could someone plz explain this to me..
*salutes those who have spent the last 8 months rocking* <333 You amazing people heart
When will this feature come out?
Ooh nice. I can't wait until this is released!
I have a few questions though, how much does it cost exactly to send 1 message? We don't use half gold (.5) so how does it come out to 5 gold for only 2 users? And how many users can we send a message at 1 time? Will there be a maximum like 200 users per group announcement?
Wow, I can't believe this was here for 6 days already and I didn't see it until now! xp
Thanks for all your work on this, I hope it's something that will really help guilds/clans. I just hope your servers can handle sending tens of thousands of PMs at once without breaking. gonk
Can't wait until it's live!! ^.^
This is beautiful. Thank you!
Awesome! When does this come out?
Yay! This will be extraordinarily useful to my guild! Thank you so much for making this feature! A question: What do you mean by "Sending group announcements for your guild with 2 members will cost your guild account 5 whopping pieces of gold"? Will the announcements be charged by the guild's member number? If so, that'll be extremely disadvantageous for large guilds. I would suggest instead having 1 fixed fee for all guilds.
Anyway, I'm extremely excited about this. We've been waiting for a feature like this for ages! Thank you!
Yes! This will be so awesome can you chose if your sending to crew or members?
Hello, I am Ben and I have been off an on in Gaia Online since 06/20/2007. Here is a link to my Discord Server if you want to get in touch.
Can't wait for this.
That would be a nifty feature. 3nodding
Looking good, can't wait to see it roll out! *has to stop watching Transformers ...*
thanks for everyone's feedback smile I wanted to answer some of your questions, and the rest will have to be surprises with the FAQs once we launch! Insanity_Is_Freedom, Hydra-Star and Ungoliath : Yes, it will cost gold that comes out of the guild account. The cost will vary depending on the number of guild members (algorithmically set). When you go to create the announcement, it will let you know how much will be required to send - the FAQs will have the complete table.
Aerobe : see above for gold questions. The message will be sent to all guild members.
Ben229 : No, you won't be able to pick just to crew.
Pilotslover: still haven't seen it yet. heh smile
Everyone else - thanks for the encouragement and hope you guys make guilds a crazy mess of activity!
I'm curious, the message will be sent in the name of who? I mean, it will be sent by a NPC or by the moderator that sent it?
captcha: guitars first (that's right!)
I were about to write a comment on the "send guild announcements" box. xD
