    Airing Grievances.

    Hey, guys. Meh here. Listen, before I get into absolutely anything, I want to go ahead and say that... for the most part, I love this forum. I have loved this forum for all the time I've been here. Four years of support on my ideas, a loving community to follow, maps and theories to discuss. It's all fun. I've met many people, experienced things, torn my heart out with my honesty and built upon it a reputable soul. My experiences here are good, and I look back on them well. This place has grown well in the time I've been here, and I like how it's been managed. With that out of the way... bear with me when I say, I think there's problems. I think there's things needed to change, if this forum wants to stay afloat. It's become very apparent to me as of late, and I can't stand by anymore and see them perpetuate. So, I'm taking a stand here and speaking out for them. First things first... let's face a fact here, there's not a lot of people stopping by anymore. I get that, I do. The Reddit's around, the YouTube community's growing strong - it's a genuine win-win situation. But we've been left in the dirt, the background. I feel like, as these other bodies of the community rise, the roots have withered. I get that we try, and, truthfully, I won't deny that I don't know the exact visitor number, daily (a more comprehensive page for statistics would be lovely, come to think of it). I don't know perfect analytics, nor do I know the traffic this site gets. But, it's evident to me that, compared to its compatriots, we're in a lull compared. I don't wish to attribute it to the off season (truly, we haven't had a year without Zombies since Ghosts), and I don't wish to believe that it's anything other than the simple fact that... well, we haven't grown with the times. We've stuck to a format that we like, and I don't wish to see ourselves change "drastically" to embody a completely different image than that we originally started with. But I think, in the pursuit of things, we need to find a fix to this. In my eyes, I believe that, if we want to ensure more traffic, we need to branch out more. In that, I mean that... we, as a forum, absolutely NEED to have more community involvement. I know we have a Twitter, a YouTube, the whole nine yards, but I thoroughly believe we need to completely overhaul them in some way if we want external services to produce internalized traffic, y'know? Re-brand the CoDz YT, call it "CoDzOfficial" or something, and make it a community hub page. Make topic videos about certain aspects of Zombies maps, reintroduce the infamous podcast (that I know little about to this day). Make weapon guides. Make "post of the week" videos. Introduce the same atmosphere we have here and inject it into that. Added into that, throw up an official Twitch. Run charity livestreams (be that for the forums to stay up or for actual places, like funds for hospitals and such), connect with other popular CoD streamers, perhaps even give them spotlight on the Twitch. Embrace the larger community at hand, really, as, together, we can have that power. ...oh, and before I forget with that point... re-connect with the Reddit, for the love of god. It may be run with other people at the helm, but I don't believe that it being there like that should mean that the forum that it (by all technicalities) was birthed from should take the backseat of its rise. I think there should be some internal talks with the crew that runs that, and that, in some way, we should involve eachother more than we already do. I think, in the grand scheme of things, a beneficiary relationship between the two would work out on both ends. I think the second point I have to bring up here regarding things... more or less, is in regards to the way things are run. Believe me when I say, to every single Moderator and Admin that stands here still with us, I respect all of you. I respect that, as it stands, you guys do a fantastic job. Though, I don't know that everyone does it in the best manner. I don't think that every Moderator sees their work equal and just, or handles their work well, and in a conducive manner. Notwithstanding the fact that, if I'm being honest, I don't really even know how many of you are still around these parts. The most I see anymore around here is @Lenne, and @InfestLithium, the two of whom, I trust the most, and the two I believe will hear me out on these points as I say them. I mean, honestly. People throw suggestions up all the time - hell, I've done it over the past few months and have had good answers from them. But I've seen a number run down that pipeline and not get the same treatment. Like Zombiefication ranks, which, truly, I'm glad to see as different and updated to represent a form akin to referencing the Black Ops III format... and yet, I go to look at the Zombiefication page, and these changes, these new ranks, they aren't there. How's someone supposed to know how they got their rank if the pictures don't represent them right? I know that's someone's job to do, I know it's someone's job to do upkeep on those pages, so... as a regular member, I feel it a disservice to not understand why these things aren't tweaked, or already dealt with. Notwithstanding, with this fact, the concern over the number of people still around to treat these things and correct them. Like... I know certain auth aren't able to come around anymore, as is. I know @Hells Warrrior is more or less his own body of sorts when it comes to activity... as are most admins, if I've come to understand it. But where are the mods? I'm not sure I understand where @GRILL, @DeathBringerZen, or even the likes of @Slade have gone. I know people have lives, I know they have higher priorities, but I don't get the idea of having a Staff team where 80% aren't around anymore. Is it that "the Old Guard's the Good Guard"? I don't understand it anymore. I was complacent about it, but the lack of activity and the general rut in which I've seen has simply become too much for me not to question it. As good as you all are, I find it appropriate to figure out the matter, and those overall with them. The final thing I can think of that I find issue with is... likely, the one thing that I see as a more personal issue than anything else. That being, keeping the Zombie Labs/Stories sections barred from adding post numbers to the people using them. I won't be the first to admit that I didn't like the idea when it was introduced, and... as much as I've grown to accept it, I still don't like it. There are aspects I find lie into actually creating posts there, and I agree that there are issues with how it's been used in the past. Yes, I do understand that a single person posting thirty posts in Zombie Labs in a short time is bad, but, truthfully, it's something like that that we need to ask ourselves what we distinguish in there. There's a difference between "Zombies Ideas" and "Map Concepts", really. Some posts are more just rambling dialogue, and maybe those deserve to be thrown in a separate subforum as their own sort of ideas. But larger, expansive ideas, those that grow to be concepts of their own... something like The Unity Series, for example (my map concept series), those should perhaps be set aside to a different subforum, specifically for map concepts like them. It wouldn't be to set a bar, it wouldn't be to schism the whole of what makes that area of the forums what it is, but it would make the flow more conducive. Concepts and stories, I believe, deserve to be given their numbers for posts back, while smaller and generalized ideas should be kept barred. If that makes sense. ...in other words, I believe there's a better way to run that area, and that's what I believe we could do to assess it. ...with all of that in mind, however, I think I want to end this post. I know, there was a lot said, and I know that, truly, not all of it was good. I don't really want to make myself "Public Enemy #1" here, and I'd feel bad if that were the case I made for myself. I truly care for this forum, and its betterment from this moment to the next, enough so that I'd put myself on the line with a post like this. I hope you guys - the auth included - will understand that, as you guys read this. I know that not everything can be done, as I know that not everything is perfectly capable, but I do want to see that something can be done as we move forward into the Black Ops IV season. As much as I love me a game of Zombies Hangman with just me and Lenne... I think it's time we garner a crowd again. I truly do. Hopefully, you guys will see that and stand with me on that shore. With that said. As always, more than ever... ...per aspera ad astra. -The Meh

  3. Welp, Week #1 of Black Ops 4 has come and gone. What do you guys think?

    Admittedly played a flurry of it myself... I'm enjoying things.

    No Jugg will ruin Black Ops 4 zombies.

    I can't help but feel that this post is brimming with... general pessimism. Which, given, is fine in mediation, but still. Zombies in Black Ops 4 is going to be different compared to anything we've ever had before,, there's no question. People like a system that works, and I think that this one will still find a way to be worth having. Nostalgia's a fickle thing, and Juggernog being cast aside sucks... but it's not going to singlehandedly ruin the mode. There'd have to be a multitude of issues that would make the general mode bad, and... frankly, WWII Zombies had plenty enough to be concerning and a bit shit. That said, it still presented new ideas, ideas enough that could be integrated into something entirely new on its own. I have faith Treyarch knows what they're doing. Only time will tell what becomes of it. ("Only time will tell what new questions await us, in this... THEATER OF THE DAMNED!")

    So... Podcast der Toten?

    Hey guys, Meh here. Still getting used to the whole "Dweller" thing... definitely a new aspect of the forum to me. Glad to say I appreciate being able to reach this point, though. That said, I'd still prefer to level with you guys on these terms for a time. I like having these sorts of conversations with the community we have where anyone can have a say and not feel shut out because of all the people that are above them. So... that's partially what this is for. ...weird way to start the post, but, hey, I wanted to address that. Onto the juicy stuff. I think a few of the older members - and the auth - would likely remember the name "Podcast der Toten". I know I do, but not very much as well as I could. All I can say I really knew of it was that it was a sort of community podcast, where most the auth would come together and talk. I don't recall if there were special guests from time to time in the form of YouTubers or not, nor do I remember a lot of the other pressing details, but I know that we used to do it. So, in light of this, I wanted to ask about it. What the plans were for it. All that cool jazz. I know that we're planning to reform the place a bit... certainly hope we can, and we do it well, admittedly so. But I don't want to leave certain things in the dust. If there's plans for the Podcast to return, I would love to hear them... and perhaps, even, be a part of it. So... yeah. As always, per aspera ad astra. -The Meh
  8. Y'know, I was looking at a couple of old posts today. Do you guys remember a "bump this post" function? Because I do, and I've read comments mentioning it.

     

    Now I feel old as shit just thinking about it xD

      @Lenne It’s an ancient function. Last I saw it even mentioned was in my “Unity” posts after it. So... like June 2014. “Ancient af” probably is an understatement in some ways xD

      It was a function I introduced before the upgrade to IPS V4, not available anymore but I can check into whether we can add it back.

    Why yes it is! Posting your board momentarily, boi. I was hoping you'd catch the whole theme that, well, I've been doing member names... ...and I did yours so you could get the points and dethrone Slade. Then you guessed Slade. I died a little, not gonna lie. No prob, Bob. (...it's 'Lapis'.)

    Which map will you play first?

    I think my working order is Classified... then maybe BOTD/IX? Voyage of Despair is sadly the last one on my play order though. Then again, I might just play them all in order. I dunno. I'm excited for all of these maps. So...
