Title: New Changes to the Forums!


King Arthur - July 16, 2009 01:57 AM (GMT)
> I'm proud to anounce that we just saved more space for extra possible mods, as well shortened the loading time. It's still slow because of the mods we have, but it's less slow.

> And now, for the big news:
> I am happy to announce the bran new CAP system!
> The CAPs system is the way the leaders and council will have to keep track of who's been doing the most for the clan, who's doing the most effort here and there, and who's levelling the most. CAP stands for Clan Award Points. Members may earn them to show off and possibly, they might be used for something, in a nearby future, maybe?
> You can earn CAP's on various ways:
  • Becoming the month's Member of the month gives you 1 CAP
  • Achieveing Lit's proposed levelling system on a week gives you x CAPs (Read more below)
  • Excelling yourself on a clan war gives you 1 CAP
  • Each 500 post count milestone earns you 1 CAP
  • Becoming a Full Member earns you 5 CAPs!!!!
  • Getting a promotion earns you 2 CAPs, no matter the promotion
> But these are only some of the ways you can earn CAPs. There are some other more you'll have to find out for yourself... ;)
> Leaders and Council are the only ones that may award CAPs.
> CAPs are not a rank measurement. A member with more CAPs than other are the same rank, thus are both respected equally.
> CAPs must not be begged. They are awarded as the Leaders/Council seem fit.
> CAPs may be removed as a light warning procedure for breaking small rules so be careful...
> Reaching some CAP milestones may hold a surprise... Or not... Who knows?

> On a side note:
> Glued topics have been bound, teleported topics have been teleothered and polls are now votings. Just to keep the RuneScape feel ^_^

Lit - July 16, 2009 01:59 AM (GMT)
I'll proceed to explain you how my leveling system works. First of all the numbers are based on F2P Training, so if you're a member the times should be halved.

NOTE: When I say Combat, I'm talking about F2P combat, as summoning doesn't help us at wars.

Below 80 Combat -> 1 Combat Level a week
Between 80 and 90 Combat -> 1 Combat Level each 1 and a half weeks
Between 90 and 100 Combat -> 1 Combat Level each 2 weeks
Over 100 Combat -> 1 Combat Level each 2 weeks and a half, really depends how high you're.*

As I stated above, all the time values are F2P. If you're P2P, the values get halved. For example, if you're 87 Combat (F2P obviously), and you're member, you should be getting 1 combat level each 10-11 days.

*Some people complained about "very high levels" that might find a level each 2 and a half weeks very hard to accomplish. That won't probably happen until like, 110 Combat. At that level I personally wouldn't mind, since this is mostly to build up or average combat level (at the moment it's 89) and to prevent that the Trial Members and the new Full Members "go lazy" and forget about the clan.

________________________________________________________________________________________

Special Cases: Some people have very low defense and high ranged/strength, which makes them really hard to level combat. Don't worry, I am aware of who this people are. In this case, the leveling system works this way:

400k experience a week, in one of the following: Strength, Ranged, Magic, Attack, Prayer. The experience cannot be split, so it doesn't count if you gain 399k exp in Ranged and 20k in Magic. The 400k must be in one single skill (it can be in more than one of course, but never split).

People who should follow this system are Woody Lt Pk and Kerkennah2. If you want to be added, PM me and we'll discuss it.
________________________________________________________________________________________

I'll now explain how I will be tracking your exp/levels. The tracking itself will start July 20, this Monday, 10pm OCT. All levels/exp you gained before that don't count. The next week's Monday I'll check again and see how you did, and the respective CAPs will be handled depending on how dedicated you were. If you have any more concerns, PM me. ;)

Starwolf Ftw - July 16, 2009 02:01 AM (GMT)
Since I got over 3k posts, I should have 6 Caps lol :P

King Arthur - July 16, 2009 02:04 AM (GMT)
> About that, it might take a while till we get everyone's past CAPs ^_^.
> And star, you'd have 13 caps. 5 for becoming full, 6 for the posts and two for becoming High Council.

Kerkennah - July 16, 2009 02:16 AM (GMT)
I like this system :D Really well thought out idea :yes: That means I should have 10 caps at least :D 5 for full member, and 5 for all my posts
Hopefully this need system, encourages people to strive to become better :)

Kevinsaurus - July 16, 2009 02:21 AM (GMT)
cool new system arth... and thx for the clear info on the your system lit... looking forward to see it be a big sucess ^_^

time for me to pull a few combat levels fast lol

King Arthur - July 16, 2009 02:23 AM (GMT)
> Anyone I might overlook, please PM me and I'll update your CAPs.

U R Dead Nao - July 16, 2009 02:33 AM (GMT)
Awesome update K, looks like a good way to give praise to the ones who deserve it :P

King Arthur - July 16, 2009 02:41 AM (GMT)
> Oh, BTW, Clan Friends won't have their CAPs updated unless requested (I can't remember myself who did what, who was promoted to what and such... :rolleyes:)
> I'm PM'ing Council and Leaders with instructions on how to Update members' CAPs.

red ring 95 - July 16, 2009 03:42 AM (GMT)
i like it! great job bud!

animal magik - July 16, 2009 06:09 AM (GMT)
Sweet, so I'd have 4 for my posts? Also, I levelled up a f2p cb level two days ago - will that count for Lit's thing?
EDIT: Ignore the post one, saw the side. ^^

woody lt pk - July 16, 2009 06:24 AM (GMT)
Sorry guys i dont think i can work on lits lvl system... <_<

animal magik - July 16, 2009 07:10 AM (GMT)
I think I should have at least 11 CAPS...
4 for posts, 5 for trial member and 2 for previous promotions.

Tomas_Speed - July 16, 2009 07:47 AM (GMT)
I really enjoy this system guys, Its a good way to track all our effortes. Nice work you guys :D

Another thing, The levelling system is ok but i dont think i will be gaining alot of combat levels... (will gain some dont worry) because since the minimium requirements for the clan is 75 combat and as i said before i rather not go too far from it or i wont be able to help my lower lvl clan mates (aside from wars...). Im currently working on my ranging, magic and prayer for the time being so i will hardy level... hope thats ok... i dont want it to be considered slaking off because i can garante i do care about the clan and if really necessary will earn combat levels... :P

Puranox - July 16, 2009 07:50 AM (GMT)
Great idea Arth ;)

I like it, and Lit's combat system is cool too :P

Old faintman - July 16, 2009 08:06 AM (GMT)
cool idea arth :D
I rly like it

woody lt pk - July 16, 2009 08:53 AM (GMT)
I dont rly like it :D cuz i will be the badest clan member and it'll make me feel a bit sad.... :D anyway u can feel good when u see me :D

Dylan - July 16, 2009 10:00 AM (GMT)
I'm sorry lit, i wont be able to do that much leveling as i actually do things that arent related to Runescape most of the time.

Kevinsaurus - July 16, 2009 12:56 PM (GMT)
don't worry woody it doesn't affect your position in the clan or how anybody views you... it's just like a SIDE SEPARATE competition for ppl who like to a have a lil fun... it encourages activity as well... and with mystery awards ppl will wanna do it =)..

btw i think I have 10 CAPs now but not sure...

where are you gonna keep track of it? u gonna make a pinned topic that displays it?

EndlessNameless - July 16, 2009 01:51 PM (GMT)
That's a really great Idea Arthur! Gratz!

tubu1982 - July 16, 2009 03:12 PM (GMT)
wow i love the idea! and the combat leveling idea is good!

Lit - July 16, 2009 03:23 PM (GMT)
Don't worry Woody, I know who can gain fast levels and who can't. You have low defense, but very high ranged. If you keep training Ranged, you'll never level combat a single time. I understand this and you, like Kerk, are "special cases". Don't worry, I have planned something different for you both.

blompty2 - July 16, 2009 03:25 PM (GMT)
These are very good and can only bring the clan forward.
Thumbs up from me

woody lt pk - July 16, 2009 05:26 PM (GMT)
Thanx for understanding Lit ^_^

King Arthur - July 16, 2009 07:01 PM (GMT)
> Magik, going AWOL and rejoining sets your CAPs back to only your post count award value. So, since you have 5 for becoming full again, and 4 for 500x4 posts.

> I'm updating your CAPs now blomp.

> Golden and Lamb, feel free to set your CAPs at any value you want. I'd set to your favorite number ^_^

nickedemus16 - July 16, 2009 08:58 PM (GMT)
sounds like good stuff ^_^
guess i gotta show what i got for this clan huh? :yes:

This is mainly so everyone can participate on the CAPs system fully, and so I don't get hated for making differences or anything. ;)

Kerkennah - July 16, 2009 10:06 PM (GMT)
Ok :) I'm working on 99 strength and range all the time, so that shouldn't be a problem. Oh and 94 magic :)

woody lt pk - July 16, 2009 10:09 PM (GMT)
Thanx Lit and I'm acctually doing th same thing as kerk rofl :D but kerk i sugest u do range when u skill hunt(its fast) to 90 or so with red chins its really fast exp :)

Thats great :D We can train together :yes: Ya, I'll have to train hunting sometime, right now I'm at level 1 :lol:

Lit - July 16, 2009 10:50 PM (GMT)
Glad you like it. I'd like to add that for each level (or 100k for Woody and Kerk) you get 1 CAP. Say if you got from 90 to 100 Combat in 2 weeks, you'd get 10 CAPs (and a T-Shirt saying "I nolife Combat"). ;)

King Arthur - July 16, 2009 11:59 PM (GMT)
> And Lit got access to the members' CAPs so he can add CAPs as needed.

> Btw, Lit, I got a level today, remember? Award me CAP?

CAP begging is not cool! :P You can do it yourself lol, no need to ask me. Doing it now.

If any of you gets a level (and can prove it), tell me and the respective CAPs will be given.

King Arthur - July 17, 2009 01:43 AM (GMT)
> You might not have noticed, because it is very small update, easy to miss:
> When our DEFCON is lower than 5, the skin goes red on the borders :)

Dude12dragon - July 17, 2009 02:19 AM (GMT)
7 cap points ouch better get posting or lvling :P :)

animal magik - July 17, 2009 08:02 AM (GMT)
So I guess a cb level the day before the levelling thingo came out doesn't count?
Proof is I signed up with my cb on the duelling tournament before and now it is 1 cb level higher. :o
But nah I guess it doesn't count seeing I was early... oh well, looks like another month before I get another. ^^

Sick Mate 9 - July 17, 2009 08:44 AM (GMT)
the 500 post milestone. wouldnt that just make people spam? or would that take away CAPS?

but anyway. its a pretty cool idea.

would i have 5? cause of my past member rank

woody lt pk - July 17, 2009 09:58 AM (GMT)
hey Lit im 80cb in p2p so if i make it 90cb in 2 weeks will i get that t shirt? :D
