    Ok, going to give full attention to this and Livestreaming now.

    How can you help? If you can not code or write or livestream, we could mainly use as much participation as possible:). In other words, there is alway a way to help if you want to.

    The biggest part of GameOgre.com 2.0 will be a new format aka CMS for the main site. With this we can a lot more because the whole site can be updated instantly. We can also add more features to improve current areas for a better experience. Stay tuned:).

    We are going with Wordpress for the CMS:). We already use it for the blog so it was an easy choice.

    On this one, you mean the ability to giveaway Forum Coins via the same system as Forum Points, right? I don't think that's possible as they are two different plugins.

    I really like it Ogreman. Seems like a step up, more professional in my opinion.

    Yes, but we probably need a way to optimize it for smaller screens and mobile.

    This is pretty vague, need to be more specific. However I remember we talked about this a long time ago.. I can only assume it's the same thing as the ranking system is working normally. So group rankings:

    GameOgre.com Free MMORPG Forums - Group Ranking

    The default "ranking"... I'd call it more sorting... on that page is "Points" as indicated by the arrow next to it's name. Other rankings include "Group Name", "Members", "Max Points" and "Min Points".

    Group Name - Sorts in alphabetical order by name.
    Points - Sorts by average points of members in a group.
    Members - Sorts by number of members in a group.
    Max Points - Sorts by highest number of points an individual member of the group has.
    Min Points - Opposite of the above.

    All of these are working as intended.

    I believe this complaint is centered around the WoT Group being far down the list when sorted by the default "Points" ranking. This is because the WoT Group has 89 members, many of whom have low amounts of points. This drags the average number of points for the group down and therefore ranks it lower. This is also seen with the GameOgre group, which has 106 members.

    The default "Points" ranking with always be more members = lower number because not everyone will have 30k+ points but is this a "problem"? In my opinion, it's not. The "rankings" are bad in the sense they are in no way a good indicator of a good group but at the same time we don't use the rankings for anything and it is working as intended.

    For an easy fix, just look at this page. In my opinion, it's a lot better snapshot of groups performance:

    GameOgre.com Free MMORPG Forums - All Groups

    For what it's worth, the WoT Group is fine. Groups are under used but I'd definitely rank WoT Group right at the top.

    TLDR: Group Rankings are hardly rankings, in this sense I agree it's bad but at the sametime they are working as intended and it's just they aren't using "normal" rankings.

    I don't think it is possible, but what would be cool is for members to have levels and experience points like an RPG. LA could show our characters and loot. Wonder if something like that exists or not even.
