Happy 3rd Anniversary to the guild!

Finally had an excuse to start tweaking the theme of the site & getting used to Shivtrs updated editor v2.0, which allows these lovely custom content borders; told you those frames would come in handy someday, finally they'll see some use. The golden pillars were much too large for the side blocks so I actually made a few new pieces & even recycled/edited some stuff from my previous theme.

Everquest Next - Landmark
(still in beta)

Anybody thinking... guild decorators dream tool? Anyway, this is where I spend the majority of my time now, hence the delay in updates.

Figured we haven't had a poll in a few months so I posted one to see if anyone is excited about Sony's new addition to the Everquest franchise.

Shivtr added a timezone & a Twitch function so the modules have been added at the top. The Twitch node should display screenshots & a link when EQII devs stream. Check out these great EQL live-streams as well & possibly win some prizes!

If this page looks funny or frames don't link or images overlap try pressing ctrl+0. This resets your browser page zoom to 100%. Don't try in the game-browser though or you will likely activate one of your abilities!

I got re-acquainted with the Server Status node, also at the top; I took it down a couple of years ago because it would display the server as active even while it was down for maintenance, making it useless; so we'll see if it's been fixed.

Still having issues with the EQ2 community news RSS feed so that block will not work for now; go to the source for EQ2 related news.

Applications are always welcome, I still get them forwarded straight to my main inbox so I get to them fairly quickly; despite being a large guild the applications don't exactly "pile-up" on here. So I just thought I'd clarify why I continue to moderate the site:

Metalocalypse is an active guild, the players are diverse & as such passionate statements can arise that may conflict with others views, so to avoid that sometimes people walk on eggshells & shy away from the text box to concentrate on the game rather than get swept up in the fury of a debate. To each their own, as long as it doesn't get out of hand (i.e. uncivilized, disruptive to the desired guild-chat function) we wouldn't dare try to silence your voice!

That chat box can also be outright inadequate at times, when you are trying to give a lengthy slice of advice, or when sometimes a topic is too demanding to carry on in public without being washed away in other topics &/or overshadowing players asking for assistance. So the website is just here for any who need/want an outside of game way to communicate should the need arise, for example: if the game experiences another extended period of downtime.

I can't be arsed to censor you, if you make a fool of yourself it'll be on the page for all to see, you can always edit posts if you make a mark you regret, I will just delete any post that goes out of it's way to be inappropriate (porn, illegal discussions, bullying/real-life threats, being a prick).

The forums are free for members-only viewing/use, they just don't get used. But I really only made this site because no-one else had done it yet, I never thought it would last this long; I like Shivtr, I've used it since it was called MMOGuildsites; it serves it's purpose, however basic, without having to waste money on a paid service. I will gladly keep it active if it is ever needed, it's easy to run. Maybe I'll redesign the layout soon, I just grew fond of the way this one looks when I open it in the game browser :)
