@  acceptance : (20 June 2018 - 02:09 PM) I think
@  acceptance : (20 June 2018 - 02:29 AM) Sick nasty.
@  acceptance : (20 June 2018 - 02:29 AM) No More Heroes 3 is a thing.
@  Mig64 : (15 June 2018 - 02:36 AM) I'm not really sure how I feel about it, it felt a bit too different, could either work very well or not work at all, no middle ground.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) not having super high hopes for it
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) the names and art are interesting
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) new FE looks ok
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 09:07 PM) A post on SF refers to "brigade based tiles" and "squad based controls"
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:59 PM) Those generic units following the character give me hope that we can have actual large scale battles instead of turning everything into a glorified skirmish.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:56 PM) Seems like a very fitting name for the character, then.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:27 PM) oh hey doing more research on that - the "gard" part is in fact cognate with "guard," so Edelgard approximately means Nobility Protector.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:26 PM) (Also, Edelgard is an interesting name - -gard is a common ending for old Germanic feminine given names [think Hildegard] and Edel is German for noble)
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) The thing I thought might be interesting for gameplay is that it looked like maybe there were "units" that were actually ~a dozen generics. You can see a large group of archers and a large group of mages attack simultaneously.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) I appreciate that Edelgard is wearing pants and not exposing her cleavage. These are useful things in battle.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:23 PM) There's not much there.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:18 PM) Hey, guys, did you watch the Fire Emblem: Three Houses trailer? Thoughts?
@  acceptance : (12 June 2018 - 12:19 AM) Abyss 3DS will never be a thing that makes sense to me lol.
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) but maybe they'll just remake it from the ground-up one day, who knows
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) I already played it for PS2 and 3DS, so I think I'd have passed on that
@  acceptance : (11 June 2018 - 03:35 PM) Although in terms of remakes I would have preferred an Abyss PS4 version. Beggars can't be choosers and all that, though.

*Mostly mainsite staff.

Hey everyone—been a while since the last homepage update. First of all, we're currently working on new features and content for the site. As a starting point, you can now submit your own savegames, and soon, you'll be able to do much more.

However, we also need some help on this front. We're looking for multiple staff positions: a community manager, a PHP coder to help me out, and a content moderator. For more information or to apply, please contact us.

Lastly, as always, please follow our Twitter for all the latest updates on Fire Emblem! Again, you won't find the latest updates on this page unless they're huge! Thanks!

Staff Position Details:

Community Manager - Promote forum activitiy by investing time into new topics and replies as well as helping new members. Later on, there is potential for helping with maintenance and other aspects. Can compensate you for your time with $20 a month.

PHP Coder - Help speed up the coding of PHP elements on the mainsite. This requires a decent level of PHP knowledge as well as free time and flexibility/adaptability with getting used to the site and how I want things to work. It also means I'll have to trust you so I suppose "trustworthiness" is a nice trait to have. Volunteer only--programming is difficult and a meager amount of pay wouldn't be worth it, so if you're going to do it, it would have to be for a greater cause (like helping the Fire Emblem community, which is why I'm doing it).

Content Moderator - This simply involves approving and denying submitted files such as save games, patches, utilities, etc. as we add support for people to submit them to our database. You may have to also make slight changes to them before approving them. For the most part though, it means checking like, once a day and spending 5-10 seconds to approve anything, if there is anything. Once the hack section is up, it will likely take a bit more work to approve and manage projects (due to their bigger nature) but those would only happen once in a while, and said system won't be ready for a while, so it shouldn't be a worry.

Stuff on this forum I could probably manage as I already visit as a part of my regular rotation...but mainsite...not so much. I'm starting a transition to grad studies in the fall (kind of...changing streams is hard so I have to take a boatload of courses just to change departments) and will be working part time (since screw you kirant we only offer one session of each course a year and our schedule is screwed up) so doing mainsite stuff, in addition to working on my own projects and running an entire simulation hockey league, would be a bit much.

I could certainly look advertise a little for these positions elsewhere though.

Zak isn't mainsite staff, but he has so much time on his hands that he'd probably be able to handle the content moderating without a problem. i don't really do anything right now so i could pick up on PHP coding fairly quickly as well. it might be a little while, but i work with coding here and there so i'm sure i could pick it up without a problem.

@Kirant ahh, understandable, thanks for even responding haha. Your continued visit to the forums is, honestly, enjoyable in itself and enough of a "contribution" to me, haha... and I think I discussed that you would make a good mod at one point but you must have declined or it just never happened or something idk

@Zac That would be helpful, are you somewhat familiar with various aspects of hacking and such? And do you feel like you have a good sense of things like proofreading and formatting? That's all it really comes down too--they're not high-leveled skills but if I have to say "no no you should do it X way" constantly then it does defeat the purpose of having you help me is all. If you think you can do it though then hit me up on Skype sometime and I could show you how it works, it's pretty simple and I could probably set up an e-mail system so that you can check your e-mail for new submissions instead of checking every day (would be more efficient since I doubt we'll get many save game submissions for a while/until things pick-up).

Oh and "Zak isn't mainsite staff" is silly to say, you can just become staff lol, that is kind of the point of this. You don't have to be staff to take on a staff position (or else there'd be little point in making this thread haha).

proofreading is my thing actually. i was one of the editors for my school's newspaper back in maryland(and if i wasn't so interested in cooking i'd totally be an english teacher one day). i do have a little experience in the FE hacking world...not a whole lot but i am familiar with the basics if that's what you're asking. next time i see you on skype i'll send you a little message that probably won't be very relevant to anything.

Oh and i thought you were putting this thread up for mostly mainsite staff to read. just a little misunderstanding on my part.

I'd totally be open for content moderation, haha. I may not visit too much, but hopping on once a day and validating stuff is very realistic for my schedule at the moment, and I'd have to visit the site more to do it, probably hitting the forums in the process, so there's that.

haha nah, for mainsite updates though I usually do something like c/p the update to the forums in a topic and link to it on the mainsite (depending on the update, sometimes if there is another relevant link I'll use that instead, but this gives me a place to put more information/details or let people comment)

@Smashed alright I'll keep you in mind
