I understand that apparently it's for "staff" only as of now, but if we are frequent users could we possibly be allowed to write our own bio for the "About" section of The Hidden Blade?

If the only way I'd be allowed is to become an admin, I'd gladly accept that promotion Laughing out loud

I think the frequent users (which are what, 15-20?) should have the opportunity to be apart of a THB "staff". Big smile

No, that's my real name. I decided to "go public" when we launched The Hidden Blade. Who are you calling paranoid? (@.@)

As far as putting other biographies on the "About" page, I want to avoid a situation where we either have 200 people listed or else some members feel slighted for not being included. How about a "featured member of the month" or something?

Member of the month sounds like a great idea. Personally, I thought that Glyphs article was pretty mediocre Wink

Ian's article is a little lacking. Can we come up with some facts for it?

Some say that he killed Robert under Solomon's Temple, and that he personally befriended Kristen Bell.
Some say he runs a hostel in Monteriggioni, and that his hidden blade is shaped like a fleur-de-lys.
Some say that his life story is canonical, and that you can see him on the face of an NPC.
All we know is he's called IanXO4.

Well I like the member of the month idea ,Stabguy. I think that every month at the end of the month we should all vote on someone (based on videos they uploaded that month), and there will be a post on the front page about them (probably what they say about themselves and their history of playing ac1 and 2). That post will disappear when someone else gets voted the next month. Does anyone agree with this? Someone reply please, even if it's just to joke (there have been more jokes than actual serious gaming discussions lately, especially on this post). And by the way, I'll try to upload an ac1 or 2 video on youtube every week.

Sounds like a good idea to me. I think it'll be good for members of the site to get to know the more frequent users and those who add lots to the site. It will also enable them to find a few decent videos from those users that could be helpful. I'm all for it.

^ No jokes here Smile ^

Great idea! It could encourage new people to write about their experiences on AC. What do you think Stab?

No. There are many interesting and valuable members of the community who don't make videos. Let me talk to Ian and see if we can work out a good format.

Sounds great, Stab! I, and many other users, try to give just as much to the site as the ones with vidoes. Big smile

Sorry for saying just people with videos. I forgot all about other ways (like writing walkthroughs, posting art, the screenshots for feathers and glyphs just to name a few). I'm just trying to get people motivated into making great videos.

I think some nice motivation would be if a THB gold membership included Stab sending us free capture cards Big smile

Maybe we can each send in like $10-20 to Stab so more of us can participate? No refunds if we break it though, unless it's broken on the way after being shipped to us. I'd be willing to do it! Laughing out loud

capture cards? who needs them? Tongue THB has plenty of great videos shot with a plain ol' video camera. I've even seen some vids shot with a cell phone!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCmbWI3tY80

and in case anyone forgot - my first 46 AC videos were recorded by camera.

i guess what im trying to say is that the lack of a capture card shouldnt stand in anybodys way of making videos.

Ian and I still don't use capture cards. Our "high quality" videos are shot with DVD recorders.

In NZ capture cards are real cheap, also inspired me to make vids for my other games. I like this idea as well

Speaking of which, is there a way to find out post counts of users?

I'd like this as well, the old forum was quite useful like that, showing which topics youve posted in most, the percentage of posts you make a day and of course your post count..
