Designing the OC Mousemat

OK so this is just a short little post, but I wanted to tease something that I'll be writing about in an upcoming announcement on the website ūüėĄ So, ages ago we were talking about what we might want to do for the next supporter tier, and we had a couple ideas flying around. Scarves, pillowcases, OC-themed dice,¬†even some other more mad ideas, but also mouse mats! I went to explore and look for a good place to find decent mouse mats, and I found a great place. When we were talking about t

Community Update #4 - Guild Wars 2.0

Hello everyone! As the reshaping of OC continues, the biggest, and so far most untouched, area that will need to be affected is Guild Wars 2. Let's talk about the future of Guild Wars 2 and OpenCommunity!   Guild Wars 2 Club As part of the modernisation of our website, the Guild Wars 2 section has been moved into a club of its own, becoming our third specialized area of the website! This includes all the general Guild Wars 2 forums, but does not include the GW2 guild subforum

Clubs, Calendars and the Pitfalls of our Community Software

Clubs, Calendars and the Pitfalls of our Community Software

I am often amazed at how easily @Lelling gets hyped when he discovers a new and so far unused cool feature of our community software, immediately being enthusiastic about the many things we could do with it to improve our website's usability. It's a character trait I myself don't share, as I don't get easily excited as it is, but particularly definitely not where it concerns our community software (IPS). However, I think very few people can be completely immune to being affected by those sparkly

Packing Shenanigans

The other day, I got all our pins & magnets required to fill the supporter packages still waiting to be shipped out, so¬†over the last few days I've been packing the next batch of supporter prizes.¬†I figured it would be fun to share the process, drama and conflama of preparing the packages for mailing¬†ūüėĄ¬† When I decided to make this blog post, I unfortunately already packed all the currently pending packages - you can see them in the pic above, waiting patiently in their box corner

Let's get right to it!   Part 1 - Early Spring Cleaning We've taken the old broom out of the cupboard for a bit, cleaning house a little bit, scrubbing some of the various old features on the website which are no longer in use out of the old shower curtain, polishing the silverware with some overall performance improvements, and afterwards we brought in some shiny new furniture to liven

Community Update #1 - Moving Forward

Hi everyone! We've been in downtime for quite a while now, and it's time for us to post an update regarding the state and future of OpenCommunity! But before we move forward, let's take a look at how we got here.   Let's Start at the Very Beginning I hear it's a very good place to start.
