A detailed Forum FAQ is found here.

Want to register a free account to post here? Visit the Registration Page.

Want to sign up for a premium account on the site? Visit the Premium Page.

Looking for discussion on FFXI races, jobs, or servers? Visit the FFXI Forum Index Page.

Want to report something indecent on the boards? Visit the Feedback Forum.

* Side Note: The FFXI Video Library needs a new author. If you can commit to keeping it updated, create a new post with it (with a suitable thread title).

Want to vent about something non-gaming related? Visit the Out of Topic Forum.

Looking for a no-holds-barred forum for flamewars and deep OOT discourse? Visit the Asylum.

Looking for the rest of our forums? See the Forum Index Listing.

And about those ratings - to quote Allakhazam in the original Forum FAQ post:

Quote:
One thing I want to emphasize is the Karma system. If people start to use it, it should solve many of the complaints I see about anon posting. If you have received Scholar status of higher, you in effect become a limited forum admin. Please take advantage of this.

As you read through a thread, rate the best posts up and the worst posts down. Then when you get to the end, hit the rate posts button to enter your ratings. It only takes a couple people rating through a thread like that to move the dumb posts below the default viewing threshold and move the better posts up, which will eventually make those making the good posts able to rate as well.

Now just make sure you have your filter settings at "default" and not at "Never Filter". The default filter means that when you are on the main thread page, any thread where the lead is below 1.5 isn't even listed, and within a thread any post below that rating also disappears. If you choose to set your filter to "Never Filter", then I have to assume you want to see those types of posts.

We do moderate the forum as well, but only to get rid of the most outrageous posts. If people want to carry on a below the threshold flame war, then we won't interfere until it becomes indecent.


Anything else you want to see addressed here? Post here, or send me a PM.

The Detailed Forum FAQ is slightly outdated (there are many more colors to choose now, and the colors for titles are different on every forum). It can also be found, along with a lot of other helpful resources over in the left column links, near the top.


<--------------- Everything you see to the left is a link


Here is a classic link about how you should act as a new poster. It crops up on theforum once every few months or so.

Expect a new video thread soon, just need time to recompile the list.


My apologies for the lack of updates. RL issues suck.

I 100% understand where you are comming from.


I HATE YOU! Smiley: motz


Erm.


I'm calculating time and such as we speak, along with preparing TWO threads that should show up sometime next week since my boss is on vacation. Smiley: yippee

Once again, sorry for the LOOOOONG delay. The Exo should be back in business once a HUGE mondo update from the dark realm of Smiley: moogle is completed.

Sir Exodus, you made a valiant effort, but you should stand aside or get some help. No offense, but you haven't updated the videos since Feb. Last time I checked it's October... Whats going on? If you need some help or are over-loaded, send me a PM and I'll give you a hand so that we can get the ball rolling again! I know everyone would like to see them back!

Offers on the table.

Hmmm.. would anybody know if not being able to rate up/down/nuke in journal is a problem on my side or the sites? Cause it's been a few months since my rating has been working >.<

If the server was unstable at the time you were rating, it may take a bit for them to take effect.

Also, you cannot nuke your own posts.

If you need posts nuked, PM me the links of threads you want gone.

Hey really need more video threads, I have a very hard time finding videos for this game.

Another way to fix this would be to have someone have a thread that teaches how to make a video in this game. I know how to take pictures easy and how to view them blah blah blah but I have 100% no clue how to make one.

I dunno if this is where to put it, but the Sylph forum has just sprouted a few annoying-as-hell new socks, one of which is spamming every thread... can they be killed or outed or something?

All the videos that I have in archive are currently being sent over to FileFront. Any extra videos you would like to see up would be best to be sent to me. Contact me via AIM. Having one solid host is easier to keep track of rather than 3204987230 hosts.

Since FileFront is slick with their form pages, my account has FastPass access for a year. No worries about wait time and fast downloading ftw.

http://hosted.filefront.com/sirexodus

I'm sending over 1 file at a time so it's taking a bit. As of this post, there should be 8. I still have quite the number of videos to go. You don't realize how many videos you have until you upload them individually. Smiley: motz


Edit to Add:
I will be making a new video thread when I'm done; new look, new hosts. Also, FileFront's file manager is down for maintenance still, so I can't organize the page into folders yet.
