Alright -- I am making MY official call for help. I need help...with this. I bit off a little more than I can chew with this, I had no idea how great of a server we truely had and you all came out of the woodwork to prove that to me. I love you all for it, but I could use some help working this all out.
We're all human...^^


I have a ton of volunteers, and plenty of people who need help - and I wanna see it through. So, how can we organize times and schedule these things? I've never ran a LS, I've never done this. Suggestions for how to organize these events are very welcome guys.

Perhaps a linkshell (BahamutUnited) would be in order? Not a static LS that you have to keep on or whatever, just a way to communicate with each other. We can schedule an event with a tenative time, and be able to see exactly who is on at the moment, jobs, levels, etc. If you all see the way that could work, I'll go buy it right now.

Thoughts?

I'll tell you this -- I may be one guy, and not sure how to do this -- but I sure as **** am not gonna give up on you all.


Well, websites are my specialty, and I have my own special little domain to host them at, so if you provide me with all the data, I could knit together a nice little website for it... :)

You know this is getting really long... and hard to follow....

Maybe somone should donate their Journal to this? (I'll do it if Jersey prophet cant/doestn want to.) It'll make it a bit easier to follow...

If you need a WHM at all for help or my teleportation powers, you can count me in.

Problem - London timezone, so I may or may not be on as the same time as needed but see if I am on and gives a /t.

I think all three ideas are excellent ...linkshell, website, journal.

I agree, very hard to follow, but this just proves how necessary this is.

My journal has a couple "bs" threads, so it's up to you if you wanna donate yours or use my sloppified one ^^

Jersey, Xvalkyrie, and Niro. I would like to extend my services to the Castle Oztroja Coffer Key hunt. I also need that coffer key aswell. But I will Pass on drop for Niro and Xvalkyrie since I dont need it for a few more levels and they asked first. But if I could get some assistance with it at some time. It would be greatly appreciated. ^_^

JP's right. I'll even throw some cash in to buy one. I thought that if you are available for help, enter the LS as active. If you're busy with other things, use your primary LS. Can we meet in jeuno tonight to take care of it, or should we make 3 of them, one for each town? In other words, one for sandy help, one for bastok, and one for Windy. This way if you're in a special area and plan on staying there for a bit, you can help others in need when they shout. Also, every person in the shell should be a sack holder, so they can make pearls for those whom wish to join.

Bottom line:Four linkshells total. Jeuno, Sandy, Bastok and Windy.

I'll volunteer to get Sandys, and will call it Bahamut United.
Any volunteers for the others?

Let me know if I'm doing this, or not...feed back pls.

I guess my only feeling on multiple pearls is.. my inv space is already tight. Im maxed on quests for slots on my toon and my mog. Also, I already have a pearl that was made for people on Bahamut that post on alla... maybe use that one? I think quite a few people already have it. I don't visit it enough :/

Jersey- As for Organizing your Journal. We could use it as a help hub until a final solution is made. Easy way to organize. Just make threads ahead of time ^_^

Example-
Thread Topic Titles
Genkai 1 Help - People who need help with it. Post here.
Genkai 1 Volunteers - People willing to assist. Post Here
Genkai 1 Schedules- This is where all the times and dates can be listed for everyone to clearly see.
...etc

Eldemiene AF Coffer Help - Same thing as above
Eldemiene AF Coffer Volunteers - Same thing as above
Eldemiene Schedules - Same thing as above
...etc

I know about inventory space and not having enough. I'm maxxed out gobbie bag and mog safe. Even my mule is hurting. OK then, I'm down with the journal idea. That way if you're on for helping one particular day, post in. If you see me, I'd like to have a pearl for the allakhazam ppl. I'll be in Jeuno tonight to get a pt for my 45 SAM, around 630pm EST. /tell me and I'll meet ya somewhere. Better yet, if anyone is 45 and feels like an exp pt, I'd be more than happy to join/organize.

Ok, this is my official shout for help. I am desperately seeking my Coffer keys in Garbage citadel and Beadeaux. If anyone is willing to help me out, I would really appreciate it.


PS: I may only be a 52WHM, but if you need help anywhere else, let me know. I like camping for coffers, but i have distain for those 2 lately.

I can help you tonight if I can. I may only be a 45 SAM/RNG, but I can take a few hits and start a few SC's. Or, my WHM is 43.

Two little things. First, the 2.3 dragon is a level 25 cap, not a 30, and second, if you're doing it at 5pm on Saturday I will be at work >.< I don't get home till 9pm PST. But, I'm not the sleeper or the DD so you'll be fine. :)

Good luck! JP, if there is anything I can do to help ya, let me know.

Thanks for the responses guys, I'll be sure to get back to you.

In regards to an LS: I believe this is a great idea! I've noticed recently that I haven't seen a lot of people willing to help (I even got pestered to pay for help for my coffer key ><), and this would be an excellent idea. I, personally, have no leadership skill, but I could definately pitch in some extra gil to help with funds.

On another note: Please don't hesitate to ask me for help. I'd love a break from this **** coffer, but I would also like to get it done as soon as possible. I'm usually available 3-10 PM EST on weekdays and anytime on weekends. Look forward to seeing you.

I would be more than willing to start up a LS for these events. I like to think with all the time I spend online, I could(with help) set up these events. Heck, maybe even get through some promyverion runs for everyone here too. If there is really interest, leave a note here with some name/color ideas. No need to donate funds, just be online and in jeuno for a pearl if the interest is high.

The LS, we already have an Allakhazam Linkshell if that counts?
We could maybe use that, since this is pretty much related to it.

I just wanted to be explicit about a point that a few others have touched on here: please please please if you're going to ask for help with AF1/2/3 mobs or missions like the dragons please make sure you have done all the prep work well before the appointed time.

There's nothing more frustrating than dropping what you're doing, and going to help someone and then cooling your heels for an hour while they do the prep work for the missions >< This has happened to me many times and it's crappy on all sides.

I agree completely and it is fustrating when people are not prepared for their own quests. i always have all quests started and ready for these sorts of things. 5-2 ready to kill Shadowlord. AF3 im ready to kill the NMs.

Whats the Mobs name? Lvl? What time do you want to go? Is this going to be a 10+ hour camp or is it rare/ex and not camped?

Edit: Also try posting Here, to get the Help forum rolling.
