Title: Clan Requests
Post by: Charon on May 21, 2010, 09:52:03 PM
So wait, what are clans?

Clans are groups you can join. There are several types now. You can only join one clan from each type, so you can have a total of 3 clans. (please note that this list contains minor spoilers)

Primary Clans
These clans are the basic adept types in the first three Golden Sun games. These are the only clans that have promotion contests, which elect a moderator to moderate the clan and the clan commons.

  • Venus - the power of Earth!
  • Mercury - the force of Water!
  • Mars - the wrath of Fire!
  • Jupiter - the strength of Wind!

Secondary Clans
These are clans that are "unofficial adept types". There's a lot of speculation involving them but until their existence is proven in a fourth Golden Sun title, they will remain unofficial, meaning that you can be a member of a Primary clan and one of these clans, and that they will not have moderators.

  • Luna Clan Member - the mysterious adepts that can control darkness.
  • Sol Clan Member - the mysterious adepts that can control light.

You can request which one of these is your main visible membergroup. To check your membergroups, look at your profile. This will effect the icon that appears next to your posts, as well as your username colour.

Clan Registration Forms
These must be filled out if you want to join a particular clan. Unless posted otherwise, you can post submission forms here, or PM the clan leader.
Venus's Form

Golden Sun Hacking Community: Venus Clan Application Form


If you are reading this application form, then it is likely that you are considering a membership within the Venus Clan; and we would like to thank you for considering our clan. If you do not know already, the Venus Clan has often been referred to as the Clan of Friends. We try to elect a new leader every few months, but elections are often slower than expected. We also have a Clan Hack and some Forum Games that are reserved for Venus Clan members. However, it should be brought to your attention that there are some requirements for you to fulfill before your application will be considered. The requirements are as follows:

You are friendly,
You have a good/neutral reputation within the community,
You are honest, but polite about your honesty,
You are tolerant and/or thoughtful of the opinions of others,
You have a minimum of 10 meaningful posts,
You follow rules well,
Hacking experience is preferred, but not necessary,
It would also help to have adequate spelling and grammar, not to mention polite manners.

If you believe that you have fulfilled the above requirements, then you are free to answer the following questions as you wish. Please note that the following list has to be fully filled in and answered, despite that none of what is listed is required for applications to be considered.

Please answer the questions in a separate paragraph/list, so we can get to know you a bit more. Some of them are asked to develop an idea about your compatibility with others, and some are to find out whether you are reliable or not. After all, friends sometimes have to rely on each other to ensure success.


Username:                                    What do you go by?
Nicknames:                                   Any secondary names that you like?
Approximate age:                             For age differences, need not be exact.
Reasons for joining the clan:                Why do you seek to join Venus?
Time Zone:                                   Such as EST or Newfoundland.
Favourite aspects of the Earth element?      For example, do you like plant or stone more?

Any hacking experience?                      Yes or No, explain.
If Yes, which tools do you use
(game-specific or otherwise)?                Please list.
Do you plan on helping with the Clan Hack?   Yes or No, why?
Do you have a private hacking project?       Yes or No, explain.
Can you follow deadlines?                    Yes or No, why?
Can you make friends?                        Yes or No, why?
How many friends do you have?                Preferably an amount, explain.
Do you think of yourself as a peaceful  
or violent person?                           Yes or No, why?
Can you have fun?                            Yes or No, why?
If you could give blood, would you?          Yes or No, why?
If you could donate money, would you?        Yes or No, why?
 
What else can you offer to the clan?

It should be noted that you must make sure to always possess the requirements to join, or else you may be removed from the clan promptly after we deem you inappropriate for our clan. It should also be noted that we reserve the right to remove you from the clan if you have not been active in the forums for six months, unless we are informed in advance. All members to have joined/requested prior to March 21, 2011 are exempt from having to fill in this application form.

If you have any questions, please message both the current leader of Venus and Salanewt. (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=3)

Have a nice day!

Mercury's Form
All questions marked with an Asterisk (*) are required. Any not marked are not.

*Forum Username:
Age:
Time Zone:
Mercury Aspect (Mist, Water, or Ice):
*Do you plan on participating in the clan hack:
*Can you follow rules well:
*Are you good at making deadlines:
*Are you skilled at ROM hacking and have a copy of some kind of hacking tool:

Please fill out this form and send it to FrozenBlade (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=pm;sa=send;u=652)

There are other requirements such as good forum behavior that will be checked on before approval. Don't expect to be approved if you get into trouble extremely often or are just an all around irritant.

Mars's Form
Let us introduce ourselves first, we are the masters of fire and heat, along with all aspects that derive from those sources. As fire can come in many different forms, from a calm steady blaze to a fierce inferno, we wish to know more about you before you join. So first things first.

Introduce Yourself
Forum Name:
Tell us what type of person you are:
We would like to know your reasons for choosing Mars:

Hacking Knowledge
Do you have any hacking experience? If yes, what projects you worked on? If not, do you plan on learning?
As a group in a game hacking forum we have a clan hack, are you planning on helping with said hack? Yes, how are you planning on helping? If not, please tell us your reasons.

Clan Rules:
Although we are freer in our actions and behavior when it comes to what can and cannot be done, there are still rules that must be followed:
1. We are a neutral clan, therefore clan members will stay out of other clan/forum members fights.
2. We expect you to show the fiery passion that a fellow martian would have. As such, you should have at least 10 relevant posts within a week of joining. Think of it as initiation, showing that you are committed to being a part of the clan and not just hold it as a title.
3. Being inactive for a full month will result in your removal from the clan. To avoid being removed you are expected to inform the clan leader of your absence.
4. As a general forum rule, double posting is not allowed you are expected to edit/modify your posts. The only exception is the Clan Chatting Room topic.
5. Deadlines are important when working on a project. You are expected to follow deadlines.

If you accept our Clan rules, then please send your form as a private message to the current clan leader DarkGriever (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=123).

Jupiter's Form

Please PM Role (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=6) or Hoopa (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=28) for details.

If you're having trouble choosing which clan to join, Role has provided this chart to help you decide, if it makes it any easier.

Post by: Gary Oak on May 23, 2010, 01:54:32 AM
Gary Oak is known as Blue, which corresponds to Mercury

BUT, Gary Oak is also known as Green in the Japanese version, which makes him Venus material, Venus and Mercury are the two lighthouses that are lit in THE FIRST GAME which entails multiple Jupiter adept sightings.

So yeah, I wanna be in Mars.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Charon on May 23, 2010, 01:55:12 AM
BOOM DONE

Also, if you guys already have a coloured username due to moderation abilities, it will be based on moderation abilities and NOT clan.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Salanewt on May 23, 2010, 02:52:25 AM
Just to make sure, is it acceptable if I wait until some forums/subforums are actually created? After all, being in the community hack team, my username does not change colour... And that means no benefits as of yet. I am considering joining Mercury or Jupiter, though I want to see if anyone else joins a team (since I am considering joining one clan if at least one certain person joins it). This said person shall remain a mystery though, so I will remain neutral for now.

Also, I thought Gary wanted to be in Mars, not Mercury?

Have a nice day.

Ah, whoops, got confused - was in a bit of a rush.

Keep it short and concise, guys >_>

It's okay to wait - it's not like we're cutting off signups for any reason. It wouldn't be fair for new members.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Charon on May 23, 2010, 06:03:15 PM
Please keep discussion out of this thread - it is for requests and questions dealing with clans.

I neutralized the regular ranks so there is no longer a Jupiter theme throughout the ranks.

And I have a question. As long as we can provide substantial evidence that enough people want them, can we ask for subforums in our Clan sections?

Have a nice day.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: RTGreece21 on July 08, 2010, 10:08:34 PM
I'm not a traitor. Jupiter just obviously wasn't the right place for me. I should have tried to get descriptions of the different clans so i could better choose which one to go into~

and yeah, i always thought of using subforums in the clans too, because well... we're kind of doing a lot o.o


Title: Re: Clan Requests

You left Jupiter and joined our enemy - Venus.  Yeah, you're a traitor.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: RTGreece21 on July 08, 2010, 10:12:31 PM
it was your fault i joined Jupiter in the first place, you know. you took advantage of me just because i wanted to be silly and play a game to get to Jamie again.  you knew that was my only reason for being there.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Rolina on July 08, 2010, 10:16:02 PM
Not my fault you joined Jupiter - you did that of your own volition.  Then you left and joined Venus to be with someone who abused his powers to ACTIVELY SPY on us, to the point that Atrius had to strip him of some of his power.  Yeah - you're a traitor.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: RTGreece21 on July 08, 2010, 10:30:49 PM
o.o he spyed? XD i didnt know that! in any case, I'm following Sala. i've given up on Jamie for the most part. Sala is pretty cool. ^^~


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Rolina on July 08, 2010, 11:14:35 PM
Yeah, he did.  He made a topic about it in the Venus Clan, and Atrius called him out on it.  Really made us mad over in the Jupiter Clan, where we were treating him as just another friend prior to that.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: RTGreece21 on July 08, 2010, 11:31:46 PM
:sad: oh... :irate: well, something tells me he'll have a hard time ever becomming a leader in Venus anytime soon!

Especially since everyone likes Sala so much. :heart: XD


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Rolina on July 08, 2010, 11:37:34 PM
Yeah, even the other members of Venus were ticked when they found out (he deleted the thread before people could see it, but we didn't let him just sneak away without letting others know what he tired to do).  However, what Jamie did has still earned the enmity of the Jupiter Clan towards Venus.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: RTGreece21 on July 08, 2010, 11:55:51 PM
well, the rest of us Venus clan members plan to make Venus a good peaceful place. we wont put up with any behaviour like Jamie's.

And this is why Venus is getting penalized in the game - because you guys have such a disproportionate amount of members compared to the other clans, there's no way in hell we can give each member their own unit.

Also:  Seriously?  That's the guy's ONLY POST, and you're accepting him into it?  At least require him to introduce himself first or something.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Salanewt on July 16, 2010, 04:52:16 PM
Why can't each player have their own unit? You could give the other clans supplementary units until they get more members.

So? Being in Venus might give him more reasons to make more posts.

Also, I do recall that this topic is for requests or questions, so...

Charon? Other than what the clans are planning, are you planning any special clan events?

Have a nice day.

Let me spell this out for you:

If we do that, Venus wins every time.  Why?  Because we've got venus, then the rest of the clans have a crapload of units full of nothing but generics.  Why?  BECAUSE OF THE OBSCENE AMOUNT OF MEMBERS YOU HAVE IN COMPARISON.  Let's look at this...

Known active members to me:

Venus: 7 or 8
Mars: 0
Mercury: 2
Jupiter: 3, maybe 4.

So, let's spread this out here...

Venus has seven or eight units lead by people
Mars has nothing but generic units
Mercury has two units lead by people
Jupiter has three or four lead by people

That's nearly a 2:1 ratio on your end - it's very unfair to clans that get stuck with a ton of generic units.  Therefore, what we're going to do is find the average active members per clan (the actual numbers), use that as the number of "player units", then make the rest generic units.  People will have to double up, and as things come to a close, will likely have to triple up as units are lost.

After all, lose a unit, you lose it PERMANENTLY.  When we get to the point of 3 members per unit in each unit, that's when we start getting game overs - there can only be 3 members in a single unit, given how they're structured.

Furthermore - if you wanted your input, you should have joined the IRC channel.  Only Myself, TNS and Leaf have been discussing this.  Nobody else bothered to show up.  You'll take the rules we put out and accept them, or you'll be removed from the game.

Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Rolina on August 27, 2010, 04:19:28 AM
Guys, I know I'm the leader of Jupiter, but Mars and Mercury desperately need new members.  We have WAY too many members in Venus, and we need groups in ALL FOUR CLANS working on the current project we have going on.

As such, I call for a block on Venus, and unfortunately, Jupiter recruitment, until the time comes when we have a decent supply of ACTIVE Mercury and Mars members.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Salanewt on August 27, 2010, 04:39:50 AM
Really though, the projects that you and Leaf are working on are not the only reason why the clans were created. I believe that those projects were initially planned for something that the clans could play together for a bit of competetive fun anyway, not as a tool to convince people to balance the clans. The Clan sections are basically like guilds, where people can hang out, and act as a separate little group inside the main community.

Don't forget that I am passing my unit on to someone else to customize, as I am not participating (no matter if I am a clan leader or not), and not everyone in Venus is likely to come back. If someone can not have my unit, then it is only withdrawn. For example, I have not seen Rayflo in a while, and we do have a few members that only come once every few months, some not at all. In the end, I only see about 3 or 4 of our members playing, so why should the entire clan be blocked when only a small amount of them will be participating? You are basically forcing people to join teams that they do not have as much in common with, and they might not even play the game either. It is for this same reason that I do not see why Jupiter should be blocked either. I mean, we could just advertise GSHC more to get new members, but I see nobody doing that for Atrius and Charon. If anything, blocking these two clans would just dissuade people from joining them at all, not convince them to join the other two.

Have a nice day.

Edit: And now I have broken the rules for this topic, by not asking a question. Oh well.

Edit 2: By the way, Jamie is probably the only member of Venus who is likely to play at this rate, looking at the list of members of Venus. We might have a few more players from Venus, but they do not come around very often anymore.

Uh, hello?  You're working on it too.  The Clans of Weyard project!  We need more than two clans, and everyone's going to Venus!

We've got enough people in Jupiter to take care of it for now, but the other clans?  There's like, two people in Mercury, and NOBODY in Mars.  This isn't the RPG - this is about the editor project!

I agree with Role, with we have everyone joining Venus, than we will there will only be 2 operational clans of Weyard. There are four elements, there needs to be four clans!

Oh and Role, how would I go about getting on the IRC?

I have added Clans. You can be either a Venus, Mercury, Mars or Jupiter adept. If you would like to be a certain kind of adept, please request it here.

You can rise through the ranks of your clan by showing excellence through monthy votes in a private for your clan. The person who has the highest rank is the moderator of their clan forum.

Please please please... just tell me what clan you want to be, in the most clear and concise way. I probably will only glance at your post so just tell me what you want straightforeward. Any posts that aren't questions about the clan system or aren't requests will be deleted, so please be as clear as possible so I do not mistaken your post for spam.

First:  There's this thing called the edit button.  USE IT.

Second:  That's not what clans are.  Choose Mars, Mercury, or Jupiter.  Mars is preferred because it has like, two members - one is an inactive troll, and the other is a newb.  Venus is the least desired because there's WAY too many people in it, and other clans are being neglected because of it.  But seriously, for the love of god, us Clan Leaders don't want to share our great positions of power with a GENERIC UNIT.  We need enough people in Mars and Mercury for a leader to be voted upon.

Mars has a serious lack of members, and Mercury has very little activity. Both Venus and Jupiter are doing pretty fine and both have moderators.

It's perfectly fine to leave a clan from an administrative point of view, but I'm not really involved in the clans on a personal level.


Title: Re: Clan Requests

I'm starting to wonder why we even have clans if everyone just goes to venus. Not like it matters, anyway, since none of the others are even active.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Charon on October 28, 2010, 12:24:25 PM
Then again, at the beginning, a lot of people started by going to Jupiter.

Currently, the Venus clan is semi-active with 16 members. The Jupiter clan has 7 members, Mars has 4 and Mercury has 9. This is including inactive members... so... yeah.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Salanewt on October 28, 2010, 03:36:08 PM
I guess semi-active is the best term for it, but we do have occasional posts in there. I have a feeling that having more members would help with clans though, since we only really have a small handfull of active members in each clan to begin with. I wonder where the next request will be though?

I do not have a question this time, but I am currently thinking of something to ask soon.

Have a nice day.

Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Salanewt on October 28, 2010, 07:15:11 PM
I did not think of it yet? I know it now though.

Random idea, but are there limits on how (or if) we can advertise clans? We do have some non-clanned members who have visited a few times now, would there be any way to advertise the clans to them to persuade them to request in here? I am not asking for banners on the website or anything, but is there anything that we can or can not do? Oh, and nothing that makes them feel obligated to join, just like having little reminders in our signatures or something.

Have a nice day.

Edit: I think Venus might only have 14 members. I double checked, and the last Venus newcomer before Felix was brstrd, who was placed on the list long ago.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Charon on October 29, 2010, 09:22:33 PM
I don't think there'd be anything wrong with advertising, as long as it isn't agressive or nasty to any other clans ("Mars sucks! Join Venus" would be unacceptable)

Also, as a leader, Salanewt is allowed to disclose as much as he wants about his clan. Venus is definately the most active out of the four, so I suggest joining some other clans so we can get some mixing up.

Nope, you're thinking of venus and mercury.  Go look at the thread.

I count Four Members and a traitor in the first month.  Everyone else posted for Venus or Mercury, with I think one person for Mars.  Go ahead, re-read the thread.

Well, we have not had any activity since October 8th. Even then, this was only to have a few topics for our members to have fun. Oh, and I think a new leader will be promoted tomorrow as well to take my place for a while, which will be cool. So another quick question.

Whenever people are voted to be a new moderator, do the previous moderators keep their position, or are they downgraded back to regular clan members. I forget what you said the last time I asked a similar question, so I might as well ask again.

It's based on rank. Whoever has the highest rank is the moderator. So if you continuously get voted for the promotion, then someone else gets promoted, as long as they are below you in rank you still remain moderator.

Cool, thanks for clearing that up Charon. Quick question before I put something into a spoiler meant for one person, but how many ranks are there?

You know, your problem with this place was that nobody was contributing, and that people only wanted to "spam" to spend their time. What you fail to realize is that you are doing more spamming and less contributing than everyone else has in the past several months. I know that I am just a regular member, but it would please me greatly for you to just leave, or give everyone else the apology that you claim to deserve. We have always treated you with the same level of respect as everyone else, but now you only spam and troll. Yes, you may have contributed in the past, but that can not possibly make up for what you do now, especially since you have already left us for the desire to spam for good.

Have a nice day.

:/

:\

I thought I admited to being wrong... >_>' What I meant by that though is that most people were joining Jupiter at first, with a few Venus, then activity started to pick up more and the new users started to join Venus. Regardless, you're free to advertise.

By the way Role, I hate to say this publicly but Salanewt's totally right. If you got a jiff with me getting my facts wrong, you can always PM me about it. We don't need to use the public space for that.

Venus signups have been closed until further notice. Please make sure you chose a clan besides Venus. Thank you.

And I agreed to this, so everyone should know that Venus' current representative also finds it fair to halt Venus registration, at least for now. Our next representative might agree to this too, although I can not tell what they will think.

Quick question, but is there a ratio or something to help decide when a clan has too many members?

Also, if we have people who do not post in the Clan after a certain amount of time (like a month or two), would it be possible to have a short period of time during which we can ban them from that Clan forum? Not very long, just something like a day period or a week, and they have to re-register to come back. Still working out some problems with this, but we have so many members who do almost nothing.

Have a nice day.

Edit: In anywhere from a few hours to a few days, the "next" representative will be our new one, charleysdrpepper.

True, but it would remove them from the clan. Most of our members are fairly inactive, which is why I finally agreed to having the registration ban on us. Then again...

Have a nice day.

Post by: Fox on November 03, 2010, 12:11:51 AM
Hmm... so that's what yáll PMed about.. okay..

My opinion: I guess I can agree with the ban on registrations... If we remove members from the clan, I would like to keep the cap at maybe 15, in which case, should be raised by 5's as the other clans get more members.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Charon on November 03, 2010, 01:57:06 PM
We're temporarily closing signups because Venus is the only active clan at the moment. Mars and Mercury have pretty much nothing going on. Jupiter isn't so bad but it could still use the membership.

There's no real "limit" but as one can see from the stats Venus has far more members than anyone else.

For your convinience, here's the stats:
Code:
Administrator  2
Global Moderator  1
Angel  0
Champion  0
Cleric  1
Community Project Artist  1
Community Project Coder  0
Community Project Leader  1
Community Project Writer  1
Forum Member  36 
Gallant  1 
Jupiter Adept  6 
Magister  1 
Mars Adept  5
Mercury Adept  8
Slayer  0
Sorcerer  1 
Venus Adept  16 
Warrior  0
Note: Moderators are different from most membergroups. Each clan has 3 individual ranks, all of which are borrowed from Golden Sun's classes (so Sorcerer is Jupiter, Warrior is Mars ect.)

Jupiter Adept  6

Mars Adept  5

Those seem to be the Clan related groups.


Title: Re: Clan Requests

Though technically, there should be a Warrior now (since it looks like Mars has a leader). I think we also have a second Gallant now. Of course, that list was made before both promotions, so I can see why it has not been updated yet.

Oh yeah, these classes:

To put it briefly, they're essentially 4 clubs, one associated to each element. Members congregate in these clubs, but they can only join one clan. There they discuss anything they want to. They also have a "clan commons" area that allows clan members to discuss inter-clan relationships.

Title: Re: Clan Requests

Cool, thanks. I just sent a PM to charleysdrpepper, so he will hopefully forward it to you soon.

We should wait until such an idea is officially announced by Camelot before I make new clans.

...We could make new fictional clans though... like, you could still be Venus (your main clan) but you could also be a part of an additional club. That'd be a pretty cool idea... but I'd rather see what you guys think of it before I just make random clubs XD


Title: Re: Clan Requests

Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Charon on January 08, 2011, 07:34:00 PM
Okay, I added Light and Dark clan. You can join one even if you already are an adept, but you can only join ONE. They will have themes soon too.

I'm also going to add a few clans like "Proxians" and "Lemurians" too, but you don't have to be the member of any particular clan to be allowed into any of these clans. Like Light and Dark, you can only join one of them. Unlike other groups though, you can view the forums of other races, just not post in them. Also, any person who is a member of any clan can view and post in the general board.

Current Races:
-Lemurian
-Proxian
-Anemos
-Valian
-Champa
-Shaman
-Yamata
-Beastmen

Adding:
-Sanan

Suggestions? My brain is mush right now and I can't remember much at the moment.

Also, I updated the first post, so if you don't understand what's going on, read that before asking questions.

Hey, do you mind if you show the member group colours (like how Mercury is light blue, Jupiter is purple, etc.) in the first post?

The Shadow Clan is awesome, but weren't they called the Umbra Clan in Dark Dawn?

Have a nice day.

Yikes, you're right! I can change that.

Modifying your custom user title won't affect your colour in the userlist, which is the reason why I suggested it.

He still is, he just chose to have his primary membergroup look different. It would be like if I changed my primary membergroup to "Sorcerer", I would still be an administrator. (although I won't do that because that'd just confuse people)

Post by: Rolina on January 16, 2011, 09:38:58 PM
Okay, I added Light and Dark clan. You can join one even if you already are an adept, but you can only join ONE. They will have themes soon too.

I'm also going to add a few clans like "Proxians" and "Lemurians" too, but you don't have to be the member of any particular clan to be allowed into any of these clans. Like Light and Dark, you can only join one of them. Unlike other groups though, you can view the forums of other races, just not post in them. Also, any person who is a member of any clan can view and post in the general board.

Current Races:
-Lemurian
-Proxian
-Anemos
-Valian
-Champa
-Shaman
-Yamata
-Beastmen

Adding:
-Sanan

Suggestions? My brain is mush right now and I can't remember much at the moment.

Also, I updated the first post, so if you don't understand what's going on, read that before asking questions.
Understood, spoiler tags are not needed any more, now that the existence of Light/Dark adepts has been revealed by the admin and spoiled via clans.   Ooooor.... Am I misreading this?

Also, why the hate for Ivan and Hamma?  No Contigo?  You make Ivan sad.

But what you listed were mostly Nationalities, not races![/nitpicky]
Understandable I guess.  Personally, though, I'd have gone with continents for nationality, and the various actual races, such as Human, Beastling, Dragonkin, etc... (See: Proxians).  They'd not be clans, and they'd be selectable from the profile section.  But the Elemental and Fundamental clans I'd have done as you did - you can be in one from each.  I'd have waited until the spoiler time period was over though.  I remember Leaf was pretty irked when he found out about Light/Dark adepts from the scrolling announcement.

Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Rolina on February 03, 2011, 02:12:20 PM
Hey!  You!

Yeah, you, new user person guy thingamajig!

Can't tell what clans to join?  Well, I have a way to figure it out!  First, ask yourself, which powers as an adept would you have?  Would you control explosions?  Zap enemies with lightning?  Move the earth itself and smash your foe with giant hunks of rock?  Perhaps you'd freeze them in ice, or perhaps control the void.  Well then, do I have a helper for you!

(http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a314/acidadept/ClanSelector.png)

Using this selector, choose your power, and find your corresponding Element and Fundament.  Neutral and Null essentially mean you go without clan for that section. Also note that you're not bound by this, either.  I myself wield the powers of lightning, yet though I am a Jovian, I am not part of the Luna Clan.  Basically, use these as guidelines to help you choose, not as strict rules. Element rules still apply, though - you can't wield explosions if you're in Mercury, and you can't use plants if you're in Mars, etc...  However, in terms of the fundaments, though, Fundaments DO matter.  If you want to wield light, then you'll be Sol fundamental.  If you're using darkness, it'd be Luna Fundamental.  In those cases, it's the element that doesn't really matter.  A light user only has to be Sol Fundamental, so being in Mars vs Jupiter for them wouldn't matter as much - every element has themes of light and darkness in it, after all.

Happy clanning.

-Gasp- YAY A NEW MEMBER!!!! Welcome im the Master Healer of Mercury (Otherwise known as the leader). I will add you to the member list once an admin approves you!


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Charon on March 20, 2011, 01:47:26 AM
From this point on, the clan leader will decide to reject or accept clan requests. Clan Leaders, either post here or send me a PM so I can update the users' profiles.

The clan leaders are:

Venus - Salanewt
Mercury - Momo, MegaDarkNero
Mars - DarkGriever
Jupiter - Role

If the leader hasn't been active in the last week, you will automatically be submitted; however, leaders have the right to revoke your rights into a clan at any time.

These rules exclude Sol and Umbra, as well as the Race boards.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Rolina on March 20, 2011, 01:48:49 AM
Confirmation:  Jupiter is a monarchy/dictatorship, not a democracy.

Also, to make it feel more GS-esque, I'd like to suggest calling the fundamental clans Sol and Luna.  Umbra was a regional Luna fundament sect, after all, such as Prox's Fire Clan of the north and Mia's Mercury Clan.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Salanewt on March 20, 2011, 01:58:54 AM
I like this update. Is Venus allowed to request opening submissions again?

Oh, and something I aught to mention; charleysdrpepper is currently the leader of Venus. However, I have a back-up position that can work when he isn't signed in. Would it be possible to allow for the back-ups to have a chance at deciding should the leader be unable to visit during that time?


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Charon on March 20, 2011, 02:00:51 AM
It's up to you now whether or not you want to accept, so yeah.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Crystal Sonata on March 20, 2011, 02:27:04 AM
Ok. Should i make the compiled clan lists public here? They show only in the Clan Commons at the moment, only seen by clans.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Rolina on March 20, 2011, 02:28:41 AM
No, don't.  Right now, we just need to work on making whatever we're gong to make to determine if we accept entry into the clan.  You need to figure out what kind of people you want, and make an application to check and see for that kind of person.


Title: Re: Clan Requests

Already done actually. Ive been prepared for an occasion like this since i was appointed. I figured it would happen eventually.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Griever on March 20, 2011, 06:32:56 AM
I have something in mind .. but it might be too much .... can we accept the people based on there posts? for example unless a person has 10 posts he/she cannot enter Mars ....

*I know it's kind of stupid to accept members based on post count ... but that will increase activity .. or so i think*

Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Salanewt on March 20, 2011, 12:41:45 PM
Perhaps a topic to discuss the various application strategies we might want to develop in the Clan Commons? I think we should cease talking about it in here, as I recall that Charon only wants questions or requests in here.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Charon on March 20, 2011, 01:29:40 PM
That's right. Keep this in clan commons or something; if you need any private help, I'm only a PM away.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Salanewt on March 20, 2011, 03:35:32 PM
I have a quick request. Could you please remove the "Venus sign-ups are closed until further notice" message? Newer members who do not read some of the posts might really think that it is still closed.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Salanewt on March 20, 2011, 07:35:16 PM
The current plan is to wait for members to get 25 posts before allowing them to join, as we have had so many members leaving and filling in the permitted space. However, as this has not been finalized yet (and I just got the idea today, which is not fully public), you may join immediately. Hey Charon, could you please bring him in to Venus when you sign on next?


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Griever on March 20, 2011, 07:52:22 PM
You might want to put clan requests on hold until the clan leaders can think of some way to accept or reject members.

I can be in both at the same time, but I just don't want to be in a 'main' clan anymore.

Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Charon on March 20, 2011, 09:02:32 PM
Anyways... clan requests will be put on a waiting list. Not necessarily closed, but your signups will be held up until the leaders compose their joining requirements. Such requirements MUST be posted here in a formal manner, because I'll be putting them in the first post.

Remember, Umbra, Sol and Races are exempt.

To clan leaders - get up your joining requirements ASAP! We need them up so we don't get a large stall.

Pending list:

Title: Re: Clan Requests

Again, Umbra was a minor sect in Dark Dawn, and should be considered to be part of the 'races' - it should be Luna clan.

Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Salanewt on March 27, 2011, 12:20:08 PM
There are no requirements for joining those two, as they are secondary clans. You could probably join one of those as well as a primary clan if you want.

If y'all have any damage or requests for repairs to skins and the like, let me know.  I'm gonna work on getting the skins back up, or at least figure out what the proper colors are for use.  If there's any specific images you want (ex:  Image of the major clan members you had commish'd or something), then let me know and PM it to me.

She really went too far - I'll do my best to help out in fixing everything.

@GSM:  If you want to be a Jovian, send me or Leafgreen386 a PM asking for the proper forms to fill out.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Crystal Sonata on April 04, 2011, 02:31:18 AM
Hey Charon. I would like to submit a revision of the Mercury Form:

Mercury's Form

All questions marked with an Asterisk (*) are required. Any not marked are not.

*Forum Username:
Age:
Time Zone:
Mercury Aspect (Mist, Water, or Ice):
*Do you plan on participating in the clan hack:
*Can you follow rules well:
*Are you good at making deadlines:
*Are you skilled at ROM hacking and have a copy of some kind of hacking tool:

Please fill out this form and send it to Momo

There are other requirements such as good forum behavior that will be checked on before approval. Dont expect to be approved if you get into trouble extremely often or are just an all around irritant.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Have had some problems with which questions are required so i decided a revision would be smart.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Rolina on April 04, 2011, 03:25:15 PM
Momo, what does Mercury hold as important?  I can't tell from that application, it looks too generic.  The others have answered, save for mercury itself.

Jupiter was Intelligence/Logical Thought
Mars was Work Ethic/Determination
Venus was Kindness/Friendship

So what is Mercury?  What do you stand for?


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Griever on April 04, 2011, 04:34:22 PM
I thought Mercury was supposed to have the Kindness ..... Venus is more Friendship/Respect .......

It seems to me that Momo isn't looking for anything special about those that join Mercury clan except for them having the Kindness of a Mercury member.

Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Crystal Sonata on April 06, 2011, 01:10:49 PM
Actually i already stated them before the most important of which being kindness. I see the venusians have stolen that one. Other qualities being such as intelligence and respect. These qualities however are not asked on the exam, but percieved in the person's behavior. A test can be fooled and cheated on. But a person's behavior cannot.

Sounds good. While you still have a few more posts to make (as you acknowledged), you can complete the form in advance if you want. I have attached it to this post in case you want quicker access when you do post your application. I would prefer it if you were to send the application to me by PM, but you can post it in here if you want.

(game-specific or otherwise)?                Please list.
Do you plan on helping with the Clan Hack?   Yes or No, why?

If you could donate money, would you?        Yes or No, why?
 
What else can you offer to the clan?

It should be noted that you must make sure to always possess the requirements to join, or else you may be removed from the clan promptly after we deem you inappropriate for our clan. It should also be noted that we reserve the right to remove you from the clan if you have not been active in the forums for six months, unless we are informed in advance. All members to have joined/requested prior to March 21, 2011 are exempt from having to fill in this application form.

If you have any questions, please message both the current leader of Venus and Salanewt.

Have a nice day!

They do.  You can have membership in both a Elemental and Fundamental clan, or did you not read the first post?


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: CelestOrion on June 13, 2011, 06:21:24 AM
Pardon me asking, but is the first post only showing detailed information for the Venus Clan and not the others, or am I just missing something? From what I can see, only Venus explains what makes a Venus Adept on the site, with Mars lagging behind. Mercury has little to no information, and you have to request information for Jupiter. Personally, I would set up the first post so that it would have detailed information for the available clans so that members who wish to join them will understand what sets each clan apart.

Anyway, that's my spill on that matter, hope to find this information soon to fit my interests.  :happy:


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Rolina on June 13, 2011, 06:45:24 AM
No, actually, Jupiter is working hard on a description of what the the clan is.  Unfortunately, we haven't really agreed on what exactly that will be yet, as the change to the clan structure is a very recent one (before, you just asked Charon and you were in.  Now the clans are actually run by the clans).  What you request from Jupiter is not the description, but rather the application form.  It's basically just a formality - even if we posted it here it'd tell you nothing about the clan itself.  You also don't really have to join us if you request it, if you're interested in what it is go ahead an send me a PM and I'll let you know.

As for the clan itself... If you want a general gist, here's what Jupiter is in a nutshell:

Jovians value intelligence and logic.  They're the ones who tend try and get things moving on the site, and the ones who probably enjoy debate the most.  In the Clan Wars RP-esque thing, they tend to be the original creators of a lot of the devices in the world (reflecting how most utility psynergy is Jupiter element).  Their culture uses a lot of psynergy integration similar to magitechnology in fantasy, and compared to the other clans are a bit more... modernistic in their designs.

In terms of power, Jovians are the strongest adepts of all the clans.  However, because they are far fewer in number compared to the other clans, this balances out - even with all their power, they don't have the manpower necessary to overpower any one other clan.  This is very apparent in their ongoing wars with Venus, whom are the opposite - though weakest in power, they are the most numerous.  Neither clan has an upper hand in their conflicts.

Do note that in terms of actual power between members this isn't the case.  The "Hero units" for each clan all are roughly similar in power, I'm speaking of the overall power of the adepts in the clan - the generic units you'd see in a RTS game, in other words.  So don't choose one clan over another because you think you'll have more or less power as an adept, since you'll be roughly the same.  Sala could easily beat a Jovian Generic, for example - after all, that's how named units tend to work.

As for why it's like that, I'm working on the lore for that right now.  When you're clanned (or before that, if my idea to open up clan commons to everyone is accepted), you'll be able to read the reasoning for it.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: CelestOrion on June 13, 2011, 07:02:46 AM
After taking the time to read through the entirety of this thread, and to grasp a better understanding of what exactly makes up the traits of each clan (for the most part based on observation, anyway), it's quite difficult for me to figure out what alignment I best describe.

For example, I value friendship higher than most things, which is a trait that Venusians have. However, it appears to me that the 'stereotype' of Venusians is that they're the 'vanilla' members of the site. It just saddens me when I see what generally makes up a Venusian, and then I look at myself. This, of course, is my first opinion when seeing that Matt-generic avatars and poor grammar were parts of the stereotype, which obviously do not fit me, haha.

However, as per most 'main' Martians in the Golden Sun titles, I can be rather rash at times when emotions kick in. I mean well, yet the occasional outburst may or may not be seen, depending on how well in-check it is. (I also figured into the variables that since Celest is a great-sword wielder, he would probably be more prone to that category). The only thing that doesn't fit about Martians is the neutrality, since Celest steps forward for what he believes is justice.

Yet, at the same time, no matter how rash I can be, I tend to be the most logical out of my group of friends, and evaluate given data in a more precise manner. This is something that is befitting of Jovians, who value intellect.

Two more confrontations arise in my decision, however, since Celest is a wielder of both light and darkness in his story (http://parable.wikia.com/wiki/Celest_Orion), but at an even usage. Would that fall under Null/Void in that one chart that I found halfway through this thread? I interpreted Void as using a mixture of both light and dark, although I may be wrong in assuming.

Basically, in a more tl;dr sense, Celest is a great-sword wielder who thinks highly of his friends and wishes to aid them, can sometimes be rash, but is mainly logical and can understand what most others can't at times. What do you think would be best befitting for such a character?


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Rolina on June 13, 2011, 07:17:36 AM
Hmm... well, look at it this way - there's another way to see it if you're familiar with Harry Potter.

Venus - Hufflepuff
Jupiter - Ravenclaw
Mars - Gryffondor
Mercury - Not Slytherin

The other option?  Go clanless.  You don't need to be in a clan to enjoy this - in fact, in one of the games I'm working on, clanless happen to be mercenaries.  They're people with no real allegiance, but most do have values.  For example, some would charge much more for clans they disagree with, or less for clans that they're friendly with.

Another option is the element selector.  Instead of values, what type of adept are you? 
(http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a314/acidadept/ClanSelector.png)

Choose here to see your elemental and fundamental clans.  Also note, fundamental clans aren't part of clan wars - they're just fun clubs to join.  That's why they're still just "Tell Charon and she'll add you".  Every person has one element and one fundament, but they don't actually have to join the clan of that element or fundament if they don't want to.  For example, my fundament is Luna, but I'm not in the Luna Clan.  IIRC, MegaDarkNero's element is Mercury, but he's not part of that clan.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: CelestOrion on June 13, 2011, 07:24:59 AM
This does help, actually. I'm quite familiar with the Harry Potter universe, and I must admit, I had a chuckle at the 'Not Slytherin' aspect of Mercury.

Going clanless actually would fit Celest best. Fights for what he believes in.

Am I wrong in assuming that Void is an even mixture of both Light and Dark Psynergy? I don't recall having that one particular question answered, so that's basically the one thing holding me back from knowing what type of Adept Celest would end up being. I mean, he mainly sticks with Light, but does know Dark skills, yet tends to not use them.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Rolina on June 13, 2011, 07:34:34 AM
Heh, it doubles as a joke, actually.  Momo, the current leader of Mercury, once made a site that mirrored this one and tried to get us to join it.  When called on it, she insisted that it was "Not GSHC".  So I often joke about her making an island in the Mercury clan territory that's an exact duplicate of the Clan Wars Weyard, and calls it "Not Weyard".  Thus... "Mercury is Not X".  But it's also true, none of the clans actually hold value to what the Slytherin house does, not even Jupiter.

Void is pure non-elemental psynergy.  Force would be of this element, as would any other psynergy that has no associated element.  Basically, pure psynergy of neither element nor fundament, thus with neither weaknesses or strengths.  If it were in a hack, it'd be represented by spells that ignore the power vs resistance check.

Edit:  Oh!  Also, you don't have to be a Void user if you're unclanned.  Go ahead and choose the power you want - clanless won't be held to follow it.  This is important for if we include you as a character in a hack, as it'll help us figure out what power and resistance values to give you, or how your class selection will work.  Also remember that you're the adept - so why not use powers that you yourself want?


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: CelestOrion on June 13, 2011, 07:43:24 AM
So I can get away with using both Light and Darkness-based Psynergy? I just wanted to make sure, since I didn't want to have anything that would be considered 'overpowered'. If that's the case, then sign me up for a Light/Dark Clanless. That would seem to fit Celest the most, if I'm not butchering my data values.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Rolina on June 13, 2011, 07:50:19 AM
One or the other, not both.  Those are opposing fundaments.  What you can do is have a djinn combination which gives you access to spells from both fundaments, though - it'd probably be an item class specific to you that allows that.  In fact, since it would be an item class, knowing the element would then be unnecessary, since the classes would be accessible to any elemental adept.

But yeah, one element, one fundament.  You'll probably have to choose the fundamental clan.  Keep in mind, here we follow the "Light is not good" and "Dark is not evil" approach, so don't just go to light because you prefer justice - darkness is just as capable.  After all, if Darkness can't do justice, then what about Batman? XD


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: CelestOrion on June 13, 2011, 07:57:15 AM
Well, I wasn't trying to fit 'light' as 'justice', or 'darkness' as 'evil', but as two elements, since one cannot exist without another. I should have worded that better, haha.

Perhaps an equip of such to allow learning the other half of the abilities might be in my best interest, then. In that case, hook me up with a Light clanless.

Not in Golden Sun they're not.  There's only four elements - these two are fundaments.  This is why you can be both in an elemental clan as well as in one of these two.  In fact, the whole reason they're not in Clan Wars is because adepts of Light and Dark came out of left field in Dark Dawn.  Until then, they were just considered symbolic, nothing more.  As such, they're not major clans, but act instead more like the Sol and Luna clubs.  Even people from two warring clans can hang out and chill in there - it's kinda hard to retcon them into clan wars, after all.

Charon may have been a bit hasty when making them ("Don't spoil dark dawn, everyone!  Oh, by the way, Light and Dark clans now exist, just like in dark dawn!"), but she was very clever in making it so that you can be in both an elemental clan and in one of these.  At least this way we can incorporate them as attributes in the lore.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: CelestOrion on June 13, 2011, 08:06:25 AM
Ah, I get what you're saying. Perfectly understandable.

Well, since you can change your alignment or clan at any time, I think I might go with a Dark/Venus Clanless, since something about the crystal aspect was drawing me in. If I'm not happy with it, I could just change it up after a while, right?

EDIT: Of course, implying that I can do that and still remain clanless. Last I heard, the Venus Clan was a bit 'numerous'.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Rolina on June 13, 2011, 08:20:15 AM
Yes, you can remain clanless.  Look at Overlord Kain.  Given his class, his element would either be Mercury or Jupiter (he refuses to answer as to which, despite all my poking and prodding), but he's a solid clanless.  No matter how many times we've tried to get him to join it's usually a "Nope".  Besides, we need people to populate the world - not all people side with the four main clans, after all.  Especially those that formed close bonds with one another before clans even came about.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: CelestOrion on June 13, 2011, 08:29:27 AM
Yeah, that'll work best for Celest, because he'll aid any clan or adept, no matter the alignment, as long as they share the same views. That would bypass the conflicts between clans, as far as I'm aware.

Dark/Venus Clanless, it is.

Read the first page. You need to fill out Venus's form. If the form says to send it to the leader then do that. Going by patterns i thought the next request would be to me to join mercury though. Maybe my math was wrong....

EDIT: Charon change Mercury's form where it says "Send it to Momo" To reflect my name change please. It would be easier if us clan leaders could change that post ourselves, plus it's less work for you. I dont know if you can assign single thread or post permissions with SMF though.

Wouldn't it be even better if it was  BBCode?

We could do:

[name=id]

or

[name=their current name] and this would grab the id of the name (and save it) and display the user's name.

I don't think we have that here, but, I know that Atrius has the ability to add custom BBCodes.

Please fill in the following form,

Quote
Let us introduce ourselves first, we are the masters of fire and heat, along with all aspects that derive from those sources. As fire can come in many different forms, from a calm steady blaze to a fierce inferno, we wish to know more about you before you join. So first things first.

Introduce Yourself
Forum Name:
Tell us what type of person you are:
We would like to know your reasons for choosing Mars:

Hacking Knowledge
Do you have any hacking experience? If yes, what projects you worked on? If not, do you plan on learning?
As a group in a game hacking forum we have a clan hack, are you planning on helping with said hack? Yes, how are you planning on helping? If not, please tell us your reasons.

Clan Rules:
Although we are freer in our actions and behavior when it comes to what can and cannot be done, there are still rules that must be followed:
1. We are a neutral clan, therefore clan members will stay out of other clan/forum members fights.
2. We expect you to show the fiery passion that a fellow martian would have. As such, you should have at least 10 relevant posts within a week of joining. Think of it as initiation, showing that you are committed to being a part of the clan and not just hold it as a title.
3. Being inactive for a full month will result in your removal from the clan. To avoid being removed you are expected to inform the clan leader of your absence.
4. As a general forum rule, double posting is not allowed you are expected to edit/modify your posts. The only exception is the Clan Chatting Room topic.
5. Deadlines are important when working on a project. You are expected to follow deadlines.

If you accept our Clan rules, then please send your form as a private message to the current clan leader Griever.

Looking forward to reviewing your answers.

Edit: Seems like he won't -.-

Alright, putting forth my clan request publicly:

I am Thunder-Squall, on the east-coast of the USA.  I don't like the cold, but I like the storm, and even the damp period right after.  My aspects of preference would be mist, and then water.  I plan on participating in the hack to whatever extent the clan-leaders make use of me, but I have never before hacked a rom.  I respect rules because of the law, order, and community they represent, but not merely because they are rules (else I wouldn't be on a hacking site, right?).  I am good at meeting deadlines, and fulfilling my end of community efforts.

As stated before, I have no hacking experience, but have instead taken on the personal challenge to code components that can be put together into an open source, accessible, and easily customized Golden Sun game.  My current project is the basis for overworld map movement, dungeon puzzles, and battles.

Edit:  It wasn't asked, but I suppose I should say that the reasons I'm approaching Mercury first is because of their friendliness, but also their seeming willingness to engage in and pursue their own projects, and include others in the efforts.  I thank Takumi for the initial welcome to the clan-choosing process, and I thank Misery for the prototype hair sprites she made for me.  I'm eager to see the kinds of things you're up to, and I love to help people accomplish things.

I would like to remove the following people for being 3+ months inactive at GSHC: (I would have probably made it 6 months... but we're 3 months into 2014 and there's only a one member difference, so...)

2013s:
leaf (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=23) = December 09, 2013, 03:59:01 AM
RTGreece21 (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=113) = September 21, 2013, 11:49:03 AM
dwkjohn (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=802) = May 06, 2013, 08:38:31 AM
Salanewt (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=3) = April 01, 2013, 10:12:10 AM

2012s and earlier:
brstrd (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=220) = July 15, 2010, 06:10:41 AM
BloodyNeko (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=207) = July 12, 2010, 07:25:18 PM
Chuck Norris (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=120) = March 10, 2012, 03:51:33 PM
i_am_isaac (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=111) = July 17, 2010, 03:48:39 AM
Sajin (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=12) = November 01, 2010, 12:33:32 PM
SSBMX (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=550)= September 09, 2011, 01:34:41 PM
felixsrg (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=345) = December 12, 2012, 04:30:14 PM
KeinoGSTLA (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=358) = August 03, 2011, 07:43:19 PM
Drick (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=21) = May 23, 2011, 09:06:07 PM

Hopefully that will clean up the list so that people get a more reliable reading of how active Venus really is...


For the record, after those members above are removed, these are the Venus members we should still have:

Me = Today
MaxiPower = March 08, 2014, 05:20:28 PM
Kingzane = February 19, 2014, 08:40:51 PM

It may not be my place to, but I'd humbly suggest letting a year pass before removing members.  Even Atrius barely posts once a month or so.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Fox on March 31, 2014, 11:19:48 PM
Isn't that why I separated 2013s from the rest of them?

I strongly doubt Salanewt will come back in that time. (Tomorrow will be 1 year for him. The time he really left was in 2012, though. He used to be very active back then. I assume since then, he only logged in for April Fools... (and made no posts.) ; And from conversations with him a long time ago, it doesn't seem like he'll ever be active here again? (Even if he manages to randomly visit.)) - In fact, this guy would be my second in command, but oh well.. he left.

 As for dwkjohn and RTGreece21... I know they were active members at one time... but somehow, I have doubts on their "permanent" returns... (I do remember there was a time dwkjohn left for a long time, and then came back to make 6 posts over a couple months... only to randomly leave again...)

Out of those that I'm removing, leaf is probably the most likely one to return. He was fired from Jupiter once, and it's not like I have a strong connection with him anyway.. so...

They are all welcome to come back when they become active again. (And I might not even require another form to be submitted.) It's not like I'm banning them, just removing them.

Anyway, the last post in Venus was on June 20, 2012, 03:33:48 AM , so I took this into consideration as well. (Just so you know.)

Even Atrius barely posts once a month or so.
But Atrius is active on the forum quite a few times a week/month, right? Those dates are the last time those members logged into the forum, not the last time they posted.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Thunder-squall on April 01, 2014, 04:21:34 AM
In general, I think a year's wait on removing members makes a little more sense than a 3 month wait, given what I understand to be the nature of groups and this forum.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Fox on April 01, 2014, 05:22:25 AM
I think there was one time where 3 months was Salanewt's idea way back when he was here. (There was that one PM he sent to me on Jan 2011.)
6 months was mine because of Atrius's script that removes non-posters. I believe this is also why six months is labeled in the application. I didn't write that application, though. I think Salanewt did.
1 year is already most of those people... The small few that range from 3-12 months can simply re-ask to join the clan if they want, and it's no hassle... they're not missing anything, anyway. And besides, I'd like to see them "renew their vows" if they were to come back.

To be honest, it doesn't really matter at all. For now, I'd like to keep the people who have been active in 2014.... This is probably like my first "clean sweep"... since I can't remember removing members before... and it falling right near/on April Fools is also a plus!

Mars has this:
"3. Being inactive for a full month will result in your removal from the clan. To avoid being removed you are expected to inform the clan leader of your absence."

(And I wouldn't be surprised if Role had a strict policy for her Clan as well?  No idea.)

EDIT: By the way, if Charon was still here... She'd say this topic is for requests only, not for discussion. (And I think requests applies to removals as well, but not sure.)


Um, Atrius? I think I'd like to change the six month inactivity thing in Venus's form to three months. (Even though I'm likely to wait twice as long (or longer) in most cases...) ; After all, it's saying that "we have the right", rather than "we will do this"...


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Fox on April 02, 2014, 03:00:26 AM
Saturos (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?action=profile;u=2599) is accepted into Venus. That's like our first new recruit in how long?


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Lord Wolfram on April 02, 2014, 03:46:46 PM
I am relay happy to join Venus clan.
I look forward to our next conversation.
Next time in Venus clan.

On the note of Clan member removals, wouldn't the Clan Commons be better suited for that? I've got a few I've been meaning to remove myself, I just wasn't exactly sure how I should go about it.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Luna_blade on April 20, 2014, 04:38:53 PM
How can I join only in Luna clan? I've read things in this topic that you can only have Luna as a secondary clan... :C


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Fox on April 20, 2014, 04:59:27 PM
You can join Luna without being in an Elemental Clan. Check out Tetsuya's post: http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=630.msg32855#msg32855


@Takumi: That is my thoughts about this topic... Since unclanned members can see that section. (Unlike when Clan Requests first started.) ;  But why create another topic when you're not likely to make many posts on Removals...


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Luna_blade on April 20, 2014, 05:49:53 PM
Okay that's good to hear. But I still don't know how to get in them... Do you have to ask the leaders or something?


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Fox on April 20, 2014, 10:27:52 PM
 Nope. You just ask Atrius. No approval needed from any leaders since the Fundamental Clans don't have leaders.

http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=2167.0 (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=2167.0)
Was able to extract and compile about 98% of the instruments from Dark Dawn into an .SF2 file, ready to convert to any other sampler formats. Have a few copies of it in .NKI format for Kontakt use myself:
http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=2256.0 (http://forum.goldensunhacking.net/index.php?topic=2256.0)
Here's an .MP3 example demonstrating a few sounds from the soundfont in use (along with a few from Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess):

Was also able to extract the MIDI sequences from Dark Dawn. Goes great with the soundfont I've provided, simply replace channels and adjust patch numbers where indicated:

If Yes, which tools do you use?
You name it, I've used it. Can provide a full list of all game-related and non-game-related software and hardware if desired.
Do you plan on helping with the Clan Hack?
Sure, see no problem with that.
Do you have a private hacking project?
More of a collection project that utilizes hacking procedures. Have a library of samples I've built up over the years, spanning a wide variety of sources, from samples I've created myself to extracted video game and film samples.
Can you follow deadlines?
I can.
Can you make friends?
I can.
How many friends do you have?
A healthy number.
Do you think of yourself as a peaceful or violent person?
I'd like to think I'm a generally calm and collected person to a certain degree, as we all are.

If you could give blood, would you?
If the situation calls for it.
If you could donate money, would you?
I have.
What else can you offer to the clan?
What is it you need?

Oh? Have you used Yoshi Magic yet? (It was never fully developed, however.)

Okay. ( By the way, I view "healthy" as having at least 3 close friends. :) )


Majora is accepted into Venus! (*Waits for Atrius to add him.*)

Thank you, sir.

Now that's one I haven't used. Looks like it performs functions in a manner comparable to Golden Sun's editor.
I have extracted a few samples from one of the Yoshi's Island games for the Super Nintendo, would play the Tetris one all the time, along with Donkey Kong Country, of course.

You are welcome. So now, it's you, me, and Saturos for our potential active members, I guess?

Yeah, it was made in Visual Basic, and was meant to be game-specific editors for the three M&L games. Superstar Saga, Partners In Time, Bowser's Inside Story. The unfortunate part is that the fourth installment of the M&L series was done on the 3DS, and 3DS ROMs are encrypted.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Majora on May 06, 2014, 12:28:18 AM
That's right, gotta preserve the tried-and-true protagonist element whenever possible.

It's a question of time with 3DS hacking, they're really getting their hands dirty with the console. Think Pokemon X & Y has been spurring the process along pretty well. A friend of mine was able to extract audio files from Ocarina Of Time 3D recently as well. Its audio storage method is interesting in how similar it is to the method other recent Zelda games use, Skyward Sword in particular.

Was apparently a fairly similar timeframe-based situation when the Nintendo DS was released. Simply takes some time to understand how a new system operates. It'll be along soon, the system has a solid amount of popular titles, plenty of incentives.

Can imagine Golden Sun will see a new installment sometime within the next few years as well, wouldn't mind seeing it on the 3DS myself, it's a cool system. Always liked how select Camelot are with Golden Sun, won't be seeing them cranking out a new installment just in time for Christmas every other year. Once every few years is a great setup, used it for albums myself for years.

So about this clan thing, how does one choose?  What are the pros and cons?

I hunger for information.


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: Fox on June 23, 2017, 09:37:53 PM
By saying you want to join a particular one... Although, it looks like it's probably best to directly message Atrius or Kain.... because it doesn't look like they are watching this topic closely.

Choices are the four elements and two fundaments. (Can only be in one of the six.)

There are no real pros/cons worth mentioning... but there are these things:
-Your name color changes (Limited to certain parts of the forum.)
-You get access to the clan forum of the one that you choose. Most of them do not have much activity, so I wouldn't worry about this much. (It's been years now, something should probably be done about them. Maybe make them public for two weeks and see what happens? I dunno.)


Title: Re: Clan Requests
Post by: HerrBoltzmann on June 23, 2017, 10:04:44 PM
Alrighty, I guess for the moment I won't worry about it.  Thanks for walking me through it though, it's good information to have for later.
