    Editor's Note by BWOT

    The reason I love this job is that I can put my own name in the title :p . However, on the serious note: we are making a lot of progress. I am so glad to see the change which is about to come (you might not know it yet but trust me… its good). Even though we had some bumps this week, and we have lost two staff members we are looking at problems in our community and addressing them so that we will have a more productive, a more coherent and most importantly a stronger community.


    ~ Project Progress ~

    Andrast - Lead: @jacenpeter | In Progress
    Report by LegoCellist and BWOT

    No progress has been made in the last two weeks which is a shame due to the amount of planning which was put in. I hope we can get this back on track.

    No progress as far as I know.

    Dol Amroth – Lead: @Thijs1801 In Progress
    Report by BWOT

    Tremendous progress all over Dol Amroth, planning on sewers is underway because guess what…. Drum roll… all the houses in Dol Amroth have been built and finished. Derp checking still needs to be done across the city, however the end is near. The palace is getting its interior done by Eriol, Thijs and a whole team. Surprised it's not finished already :D Then we also need Patrick to finish his farms and fields.

    Moria – Lead: @Despot In progress
    Report by awaywind

    Progress in Moria seems a little slow, though it did take many years to build in the ‘actual’ Middle Earth. The trials seem to be now that halls lay empty, waiting to be filled by the imagination of builders.

    BWOT: All lies, the central dwelling is getting a significant amount done which makes me very happy. Thank you Jesia and Nap!

    Gondor RP merge
    I am sorry that I have to admit that I was not able to make any major progress since the last Times on the RP’s. But I am looking forward for the couple of free days around Easter to make a huge leap forward in this.

    To get the latest infos about this process, check out this thread: Gondor RP Update Thread [v2.4]

    MCME Badges

    I spent some time to configure the dev server for badges players can get additionally to their main role (rank). In this way a Guide with good building skills could get building permissions like an Artist. Other badges could give access to World-Edit, Voxel, Minigames, Jobs and some more.

    [​IMG]

    **DISCLAIMER by BWOT** The idea of badges is still being decided on with the structure, should it be done and etc. This was just a test / step to see if it was possible

    Job announcements on Discord

    @Merlinc01 was nagging me over the last weeks to get automatic job announcements on Discord. Just kidding, thanks a lot for your input @Merlinc01 ;)

    He also did quite some research how to implement his idea and now it’s working fine at the dev server. There is just one issue, I can’t manage to put newlines into the discord message. So if anyone has an idea please send me a pm.

    As @BWOT said, it's just a test to check that colored characters can be added at any position of the chat name. I didn't spent time on thinking about a nice appereance.

    How would a nice badge look like? Suggestions are very welcome.

    "&7[&(color)(letter/whatever)&7]&r "

    ->
    [B] = [Build]
    [T] or [G] = [Tours] or [Guide]
    [J] = [Jobs]
    [W-E] = [World-Edit]
    [VOX] = [Voxel]​

    It might look something similar, but we will decide all this when we decide on the badge system we are using. But thanks for the idea.

    or

    I think those are less intrusive.

    I believe you can make things appear when you hover above certain letters or words in chat, so it tells you what the letter means when you hover over it. So I'd have it somewhat like this:
    Artist[F][+]barteldvn:
    I'd also still keep a Artist-Guide difference but with a [A] tag for guides who want to build and a [G] tag for artists who want to guide, but to show which category they focus on.

    The different asterisks represent the different ranks/badges. It's no less detail than the letters (A G WE) but it's less intrusive.

    @barteldvn idea is pretty nice, not intrusive like @JordD04 is saying but easy to tell based on the colour
