~ Guidelines and Feedback - Heroes 7+ Altar Of Wishes *NEW PORTEFOLIO 23.01.16* ~

Updates since Heroes 7 has long since been released


Altar of Wishes is now the place to post and discuss ideas and visions for future version of or expansions for Might and Magic: Heroes 7.

Falcons Last Flight forum will be the place to discuss existing features and opinions on the current version of Might and Magic: Heroes 7.

Please read the Newcomer's Guide below, if you're new to the forum and want to know how to behave.

Also use this thread for forum feedback.

1. The 10 Laws on "How to behave in the Heroes Community"

1. Read the Code Of Conduct which explains what's allowed and (especially) what's not allowed in the forum.
2. Respect your fellow forumers, and talk to them in a nice manner.
3. Before you post, make sure what you want to say and state it as clearly as possible to avoid confusion.
4. Don't resurrect old and dead topics if you haven't got anything new to add to them (i.e. read through them and think twice).
5. Before posting a new Topic, make sure there are no other topics covering the same subjects.
6. Instead of making a new topic for a small question, rather use the already existant Questions Topic.
7. When posting a new Topic, make sure the title is discriptive as to what the topic is about. This helps other members to easily decide whether they want to read through it or not.
8. When you quote a topic with a lot of pictures or other load-heavy contents, please delete these from the original message.
9. Respect the wishes of the Moderators. If you feel that they are unreasonable, leave a message in this feedback thread, or send them an instant message to solve the issue. There will often be an explanation that you might not know of.
10. Be positive.


2. What are the yellow and red stars?

For a full description of these features, I refer to the Community FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions). Here is a short review:

Yellow stars correspond to the member's post count. Members start with no yellow stars and can get up to seven yellow stars. Each yellow star amount has a rank associated with it, see section 2.1.
  Yellow stars come automatically, and don't show anything about the quality of the work of the poster, only the amount.

Red Stars correspond to the quality of the member's posts. Posts of particular outstanding quality (top 2 % in forum) will be awarded a Quality bonus and will be marked with a Red Star to show other forumers where to look for quality work. The number of red stars below your fellow forumers avatars correspond to their total number of Quality bonuses (or QP's) (see section 2.3 for more).
  Members with less than 2 red stars in their status will have received quality penalties for breaking the Code of Cundoct (see above). For effects of red stars, read below.


2.1 How do I get/lose yellow stars?

As mentioned above, you get yellow stars by posting. Yellow stars depend on your post count as follows:

  1-20 posts: No yellow stars. Rank: Tavern Dweller.
  > 20 posts: 1 yellow star. Rank: Hired Hero.
  > 50 posts: 2 yellow stars. Rank: Adventuring Hero.
  > 120 posts: 3 yellow stars. Rank: Known Hero.
  > 300 posts: 4 yellow stars. Rank: Famous Hero.
  > 800 posts: 5 yellow stars. Rank: Supreme Hero.
  > 2000 posts: 6 yellow stars. Rank: Legendary Hero.
  > 6000 posts: 7 yellow stars. Rank: Undefeatable Hero.


Posts refer to post count. Post count is affected by the following things:
  - If you send in a post and the previous post in that thread was not your own, then your post count is increased by 1.
  - If you send in a post and the previous post in the topic is your own, then your post count stays the same.
  - If you send in a post and the two previous posts in the topic are your own, then your post count is reduced by 3.
NOTE: If you've made a reply to a thread, and want to make a new one then you can edit your post to avoid the penalty. To Edit a post you must log in using the user name you had when you made the post. The "Edit Post" link will then appear at the end of each post you've made.
  Trouble-shooting tip if the link does not appear even though you are logged in: When you log in the user name is not case sensitive. However, the "Edit Post" link does not appear if you are logged in with another capitalization of the user name than the one you used when you made the post.


2.2 Yellow stars and custom Avatar.

In order to get a custom Avatar you need two yellow stars. Each member can ask for only one custom Avatar. The size of the Avatar is restricted to 2kB. More information on Avatars and Avatar reservation is in the FAQ.

The option to reserve an Avatar becomes available when you have two yellow stars when you edit your Profile. (If you do not have two yellow stars then the option to reserve an Avatar will not appear when you edit the profile.)


2.3 How do I get red stars (quality points)?

The forum guidelines says that quality points should be awarded to the 2% top posts. Red stars will earn you a new Prefix as follows:

  0-2 QP's: 2 red stars. Prefix: No rank.
  3-7 QP's: 3 red stars. Prefix: Promising.
  8-14 QP's: 4 red stars. Prefix: Responsible.
  15-25 QP's: 5 red stars. Prefix: Honorable.
  25-50 QP's: 6 red stars. Prefix: Admirable.
   > 50 QP's: 7 red stars. Prefix: Praiseworthy.


It should be noticed that quality is subjective and the moderator reserves the right to judge what is good quality. Therefore, quality points is usually something which you will not get with any predictability unless a post is outstanding.

Getting quality points is not only a matter of posting things which has a good content, but it's also about avoiding things that are breaches of the code of conduct. Most minor breaches of the code of conduct will not result in penalties.
  NOTE: Moderators are overall good at keeping notes and remembering the good things you've done along with the bad things.


2.4 Benefits with red stars.

Three red stars removes flood-protect when editing.
Four red stars removes your flood-protect.
Five red stars allows you to rate topics in the forum.


3. Temple of Ashan

3.1 Which topics belong to this Forum?

The following topics are on-topic for the Temple of Ashan:
- News about Heroes 5 Patches and Expansions.
- Discussions about the game, including in-game experiences or more general aspects of the game.
- Note that discussion about wishes for future editions of the game belong to the Altar of Wishes, although the boundary between these two fora can be difficult to define precisely.
- Discussions about current and possible Mods (Modifications) for the game should be taken to the Modders Workshop.

All the items listed in the Table of Contents for the Temple of Ashan are examples of topics that are on-topic for the Temple of Ashan.


4. How do I search for existing topics?

You can search the Heroes Community using the HC Search Engine, where you will be able to see whether certain topics have been discussed before.

In order to make this forum orderly, the Moderators encourages users to search the forum for a relevant topic and revival of old topics instead of creating a new one. Most of the more common topics are included in the Index for the Temple of Ashan, so a member should look through that thread to find something related. Members are also encouraged to look through the 100 most recent topics on the Temple.

The main reason for this is that the forum currently has no way to merge two threads, so creating a duplicate topic will place very similar discussion in two different threads and will make it harder to find things in the forum.

Important feedback regarding Moderator situation in the Altar Of Wishes

If you are willing to and think you are suited to help as a Moderator in the Altar Of Wishes and/or Lands Of Axeoth, please read the following.

As some of you may know, my activity here has been low the last 6 months or so. This has been caused by two facts, namely a general low activity in this forum and me being occupied with things in real life. I don't see the latter to change much from end of summer vacation, while the former is bound to change at some point as information regarding Heroes 6 starts to come out. Therefore, I predict that in the near future, I will not be able to be here as much as is required to run things optimal.

If you:
- Would like to help out in this forum with cleaning, helping new members and evaluating posts on a day-by-day basis
- Frequent the forum regularly
- Know and understand the workings of the Heroes Community
- Are familiar with the rules and Code Of Conduct and understand how to manage them with regard to your own and other's behaviour
- Feel you have other qualifications or things you can contribute

then you are welcome to send me a message about this, and I will bring it up with the remaining Mod Team.

Cheers, Alci.

Regarding the moderator situation of the Altar Of Wishes (january 2011)

Some of you may be new to the forum, and others may have been around for a while, but I hope you'll take a moment to read this. As also stated in the post above, I've been moderator here for a while, and for the last year, I've been hard pressed to keep up on all (read above post, which btw. still is valid).

There's been a lot of good activity within this forum the last couple of month, and I would like to acknowledge that and hand out some more quality bonuses. Elvin is helping me keeping an eye on the forum, but I would like to ask you members to help me also, by writing me when either you see someone make a good post or also if someone has made a good overall contribution that has gone overlooked for a while.

@alcibiades

A wish of a different sort. I am still new here at HC as I am yet trying to understand how things are done here.

I found this thread more by accident than design. I saw the topic and thought it was more about "H6 stuff" etc. but then I read your statement on post one and went to post three and saw that it is <IMO> "a needed read for everyone". So my questions is; Is there already a thread like; i.e. "Need to know" (concerning only HC) that is clearly only communications from the Mods to the members?

On a more dreamy note, I think it would be greatif there could be a spot of the Main-Page HC tool-bar to click-on and "get all the latest heads-up from all the mods".

I clicked on an existing thread heading that could be interpreted to be sort of the same but there was only one old post there and nothing followed.

I'm not sure I understand completely what you're asking. As you have probably noticed, this forum (Heroes Community) concists of a number of subfora, this one (the Altar Of Wishes) being just one of them. This thread is the place where I (as moderator of this forum) will give general information and instructions for you as member. I am aware that there is a chance it will get lost among the other sticky threads on top of forum, but I try to update headline when something new is up.

On a more general level, the subforum called Turban Tribunal is where you will find major information regarding the Community as a whole (and where you can give your feedback). Also remember to check out the FAQ/Rules section (link also in top menu at the very top above commercial banner), where you will find the Code Of Conduct, which is the general community behaviour guidelines.

I'm not sure if this answers your questions (if you had any). I'm only a moderator of a couple of fora here, and thus is not an administrator of the whole community. Thus, I cannot make general changes to whole community set-up. If you have suggestions to changes, you should leave them in the appropriate thread in the Turban Tribunal (check the sticky threads, if you have doubt, let me know).

@alcibiades

The main thing I was trying to say is; that I think it would be good if there was a spot where, when you made the request about "members recommending posts for QPs" or "when any Mod made a request" all members would be "alerted" I've seen other Mod statements about a requests,rules or warnings etc. but it's the same...usually buried within a topic thread. i.e. If I had read something about that thread where all that discussion kept creeping into your news thread I would not have bumgled in to it by adding more comments when seeing comments

Just a thought.

As far a single spot for this sort of thing, I realize that is a management issue but I  thought I would mention it anyway. I just thought it would be handy when you first log on and see all the forums etc. that if there was a Mod-spot I could click there and see anything going on with moderation anywhere at the moment.

Yes, I agree, perhaps one should work on a forum specific news banner, like the one we have for the whole community. That is actually a pretty interesting idea.

There are no announcements on HC at the moment, and never have been as far as I'm aware - that's why you can't see them. When I said "my own forum test", I meant "my own forum" - I installed the software on my laptop and started a new forum, which I was the admin of . That's how I know how they work.

Edit: also, the headlines are something Val has added.

Mod status 01.03.11
Just a heads-up to all of you - things are going very well in here currently, so let's continue that.

I'm moving to a new place from today, and thus I'm without regular internet connection for an unknown time. I've asked Val to add Elvin to the Mod list, but until that happens, please respect his authority in my absence, even if he has no mod powers in this forum. I have given him the liberty to silence anybody as he sees fit if a situation arises and then leave a note to me, so I can take care of things. But hopefully that will not be necessary.

However, please respect that updates on news topic, artwork topicetc. might be a little more erratic for a while - but I'll try to take care of things from work.

I applied a handful of QP's to some memorable posts, but there have been so many posts lately that I might well have missed some - so give me a heads-up in a PM or here, if you find something of quality that has been passed by.
