Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

(Ladies and) Gentlemen, for some of the stuff I am working on I need some creative help, your chance to influence forum programming, check and see whether you can come up with anything of the following

1. A better name for "ChatBot" in the chat system (R2D2 was already dissed for being too boring by the ppl I asked)

2. A better name for the "Public" Channel in Wat (My proposal: "Wat Aisle")

3. Flags ideas for the following:

     - Continents (Africa, Americas, Antarctica, Australia, Asia each - Europe we have)

     - Planets (let´s start with our solar system, Earth has some priority Smiley )

     - Solar Systems (known)

     - Galaxies (should you know some)

4. Name proposal for 2 new, standard channels on WaT chat (my proposal, for gamers: BLUE and RED)

TIA,

TA

sorry to intervene with my Rattler hat on:
2. what do you mean by 'channel'?

Like in IRC, the communication "coneection" between users on and in our chat is called "channel" (think of it as a chat room).

Currently there is always the "Public" channel, then one more for each forum and subforum, and furthermore - if anybody creates one - there are the private channels named after the user who created it.

Hope that helps,

ah, I see....IN the chat...ok

maybe 'the lounge' since it's public and when we want to discuss admin stuff we go private? (altough the lounge exists already since it's a subforum)

I went with what is internationally accepted as continent flags (even if sometimes inofficial, Asia has none), feel free to do that with our solar system  Cool

Onnly condition, must be decipherable at 16x11 px (which is our country flag size).
