    I shot a blank in the dark with 5 minutes to spare before work, so maybe not my best idea that ive had. And I fully agree with you, I work with Tyger IRL and we both have obligations both inside and outside of work, with the only free time we have spent on games or fucking asses. I myself spend some time talking to US gmod managers and communitys since I can never truly give up TTT. While there are people who are not able to fill these positions because of their requirements outside of poseidon there are plenty of experienced managers, both past and present that can spend a certain amount of time each week to fulfill a certain project. The reasoning for not branching out into another community is simply its alot harder to do if you dont have the resources at your disposal, e.g. developers, forum knowledge etc. This is why its essential to start with a pre-existing community instead of the harder to bring up community. Lantos has stated that he would rather sell it off than hand it over (I have the sc to prove it). And I disagree otherwise, which is why it was good to see Lantos striking a deal in the middle of keeping the servers up, still under his management, but also the management of others if they put in the dedicated time and earnt the right amount of money to keep the servers afloat. We have dedicated people in the community and those willing to go above and beyond, they just need to step up and put their hands up, hell I had to annoy Tyger just to post. This is a stable community, with an active playerbase (That has been frozen) and a dedicated development platform behind it, just need people to put their hands up.

    just put bat, jimmy and tyger in charge. Jimmy & Tyger work on server developement, staff management and interest projects Bat works on overal community communication, management and future projects that will attract more people. 3 partners that work with one another using various forms of communication such as discord, trello, forums and whatnot to not only communicate with eachother but also the community on updates and new platforms.

    Tyger was always going to take ownership, up until real life got stressful for him, even with that he maintained an active presence within the community even more so than lantos or spook combined. While I agree that he does go off every now and again with other matters that still dosent put aside the fact that putting him in the full ownership role now is better for long term and will definetely keep Poseidon alive for years to come. Im kissing his fucking ugly ass toes here but he quite literally the backbone of the community and always has been, from his developement of multiple servers to the implementation of complete new ones that were a basic shot in the dark.

    Why not do as intended and convince lantos to hand over everything to Tyger, one of the few sole members that made Poseidon what it was, convince him to calmly hand over full access with a partner program placed on him and spook instead of a $6000 buy out like Lantos wanted. Poseidon is still a viable community that can be around for years to come, with a branch out to several games and to dominate the Aussie gaming sector. GMOD aint going anywhere, no matter how much people say its dying, the numbers havent flucuated ina negative pattern (as far as ive seen). The management and ownership team was and still is lax, leading to several terrible decisions (Discord Manager Higashi ftw). What there needs to be is a hand-me-down style of transfer ownership that Lantos dosen't need to cling on and dosent need to end as him.

    If I got the old files surely Jamie does too

    Like always you'd need a staff team that actually knows what they're doing, how the server should be built and run and how to actively draw in players. So basically anyone that isnt Stevo.

    Thing is with these images, there would be 6 of them for one row, I'd say about 2 rows of 6 (12 achievements) would be kind of neater than stacking them all over the place. But do the achievements then replace ones that are older or will it work on a tier system, where say the 2.5k post achievement would be higher than say the 100+ reacts. (Im so sorry if this dosen't make sense, I just blurted it out with no fucks given if it dosen't really make sense haha)
  10. Higashi

    That would be a hook within the admin cp, where when someone is given a rank e.g. Owner or Manager, the achievement would be given to people that have the Manager Tag. Could you also elaborate what you mean by "ut only 5 or so selectable at a certain time" ?

    Forum Suggestions: Brief Snippet: So basically how this would work is pretty much the exact same to the old Forum Achievement system that @Tyger implemented back on the MyBB based forum as seen here: https://imgur.com/a/WkhHn4t (Just a bit of Chris acting big brain back in the day). I feel like this would thoroughly increase browsing and post making on the forums something to be rewarded for.

This is just an aesthetic/interactive system where by being active on the forums and posting regularly (besides shitposting) can and will reward you. I don't know how this could be implemented with already existing reacts on the forums, like will certain people instantly get the achievement based on what they already have? Possibly, a way you could do most of these achievement is to add a hook to what a user posts and how he/she gets reacted and go from there. Also borders around the images would make it a bit aesthetically pleasing. New Borders for ranks If you would scroll up once more and view Chris's post in all his glory, you'l see a border for his rank, him being Veteran. What I propose it to make an easily designed border around the ranks on the forums, just a simple suggestion that shouldn't even take 5-10 minutes for someone who knows what they're doing.

    Shamelessly been getting into alot of electro

    100% agree but with the fact of a mimic of a developer can still become handy in some cases, I myself cannot code or develop anything customly made, but ive spent time editing and miss matching folders like im sure you have, to the point where I was able to give my server to Flux, which it was open and recieved 'moderate' success in being a vanilla server. But yes this suggestions provides something for the up and coming future of Poseidon (if there is one) and to suggest a basis on which to handle and delegate tasks to developers who ACTUALLY know what they're doing.
