Subject: Re: Public challenges
Fencer: Well i CAN create them to challenge another Fellowship and except ones sent to the Madhouse as well as the Captain can
There is no difference, and it is handy if the Captain is not about etc...

3. When creating a 'Open Invitation, it shows you a list of players for that Team you can select from, BUT if you click on the Fellowship link in the box, it does not take you to that Team within the Fellowship. (not major though, best sort thing now lol)

MadMonkey: Only captains can accept public invitations. That's the reason why they are captains.

MadMonkey 
Subject: Re: Public challenges
Fencer: What i have noticed so far:

1. Bosses as well as Captains should be able to see what challenges are available, to except them and able to create them from 'The list of teams where you can create a public challenge' list, like they can in direct Fellowship ones.

2. Once a Challenge is created, there is no way to delete it. There is no Delete challenge option like in direct Fellowship Challenges created.

Subject: Re: Managers
MadMonkey: I would like to add comments to one of your suggestions:

2. The ability to put challenge Matches in a Team Challenge waiting room, so Bosses & Captains from all Fellowships can look through and except or get Teams for them.

YES YES YES - this would be great. Just like a person can put a game in the waiting room, have a captain be able to put a team challenge in a "waiting room" for other fellowship captains to accept.

MadMonkey 
Subject: Re: Managers
Fencer: OK, On Rank level, they are equal, just one a Fellowship & one a Team but they have the same powers as you can NOT be a Captain without being a Manager

So in other words a Fellowship Manager is .....hmmmm ???? OH, a Team Captain(If they are made one of course), nothing more

No point being a Fellowship Manger unless you are going to be a Team Captain, unless i am missing something

Until a way is made available for Team players to be able to set themselves available or not at certain times (a drop beside there names they can set maybe or something in there profile beside the appropriate Team) the last thing we need is other being able to set Challenges

This has been on Feature request many times

Subject: Re: Managers
WellyWales: In other words, both bosses should be able to edit all touraments created within the fellowship, no matter who created them in the past?

Subject: Re: Managers
MadMonkey: Please don't mix fellowship ranks and team ranks. Every team can have only one captain.

WellyWales 
Subject: Re: Managers
Fencer: The Big and Little Boss can set up tournaments in the fellowship, can it be possible that either boss could edit the tournaments set up by the other Boss ?

6. January 2008, 13:12:21
MadMonkey 
Subject: Re: Managers
Fencer: You asked, Monkeys on form today

My definition would be:

Big Boss: Every Fellowship option should be possible, though this is not yet possible in one. Even as a BB i can not enter Teams in Tournaments unless i am Captain of it. It is a pain, for whatever reason, having to keep swapping Captains, just to make a Team change.

Little Boss: Every Fellowship option APART from the ones already stated, replacing the BB or deleting the Fellowship.

Now as for Manager / Captain as in essence you can not be one without being the other, they should become one, so just use one.
I think Manager should be used, as Teams in life have player-managers (i often manage Teams here that i do not play in). So get rid of Captains, and replace them with managers.
Well, which ever is chosen they should have all power relating to Teams, Team Tournaments & Challenge Matches, Removing players from Teams, picking Teams and setting challenge matches.

(Of course ALL these option should Automatically be available for Big / Little Bosses)

And while i am here , a couple of things that urgently need looking into.

1. The ability to have substitutes. If a Team player has not yet made a move in a Team Tournament game or Challenge match, they can be replaced. Another one started this week, just for me to find out a player is no longer going to stay at BrainKing, so the Team has lost all those games, and renders the Tournament a loss already.
This has happened many times now and is getting disheartening for Bosses, Captains & the Players left in the match.

2. The ability to put challenge Matches in a Team Challenge waiting room, so Bosses & Captains from all Fellowships can look through and except or get Teams for them.

3. That Team BKR's should be based on Team results, not players overall BKR added and meaned. Players BKR's can be shown in Teams and used for ranking purposes for the draw. At the top of the Team in the Fellowship the Team BKR should be shown.

They are mine (and a few other i know of) Main issues that need addressing

Fencer 
Subject: Managers
I remember that there was a discussion in the past about possible new functions for the managers (to allow some of them to create tournaments or challenge other teams etc.). However, after introducing the Little Boss rank, I am not sure if it's still necessary.
Any fresh ideas about that? Or just remind me the former ones.

Subject: Re: Little Boss
Fencer: what about those fellowships where the Boss is now a pawn or absent and can't appoint a Little Boss. There are a few of those. Could a Little boss be put on by you and then the fellowship be given back to the Boss if he or she comes back again?

MadMonkey 
Subject: Re:
Fencer: Sorry, i was just compiling a message for you

Tested, and everything seems fine now

Only things i can pick up on are ability to:

1. Invite members to the Fellowship. In fact, if someone applies can they accept them as in the normal way or is that only for Big Boss still ? (should be both as Little Bosses can remove members)

2. Even if the Little Boss is not a Moderator on the DB, they should be able to edit / delete posts on board.
Maybe Little Bosses should be automatically added to boards like Big Bosses, makes sense


Thats it from me (for now lol)

Could you check the user scripting Fellowship please (you are a Little Boss there as well), i do not have any extra options at all

3. December 2007, 11:22:27

One of the ideas for Little Bosses was to be able to invite players to Fellowships

Could this be added please Fencer

(let you know if i find anything else lol)

Subject: Re: Little Boss
Fencer:

Just my two cents worth, but this would be a good idea if both parties agree to it and if the Big Boss were to come back after their absence they would have the option to regain control of the fellowship if they choose.

Thanks!

Very cool stuff by the way, I think this will add a lot to the fellowships!

A question for you, can you make it so the little boss becomes the big boss if the 'first' big boss goes inactive for a period of time? Say 30 days?

Subject: Fellowship Revitalized...


Since mine has been one of the 'dead' fellowships for quite awhile ... I'd just like to say that I've come back and would like to let any interested parties know that there is plenty of room for new members. It seems I have lost all my teams.

Fencer: Is there a limit to how many fellowships someone can be the little boss in?

2. December 2007, 23:25:22
rednaz23 
Subject: Re: Little Boss
Fencer: Then my only question would be if the little boss becomes the big boss if the first big boss is inactive for 30 days (or another set period of time). Is that a possibility?

Of course it is a tough subject, but people pass on or simply stop playing at BK and leave a fellowship to fade a way, this would keep fellowships alive instead of having a multitude of 'dead' fellowships like our fellowship list contains. Hope this option is possible. ;-)
