We are seeing a need for leader-only forums to return. This would be a place for public negotiations and discussions free from players and also free from my own comments.
Although anybody should be free to comment on #universal-news topics, there is a reasonable concern that my own comments on in-game matters might unduly effect their outcome.
We therefore need a semi-private forum, because there currently is no platform for leaders to challenge each other without outside influence.
Can we give leaders read+write access to this forum, and all other players read-only?
That’s the setup I was thinking.
Do you recall how the original one worked? Was it VLs could read, but regular players couldn’t?
yeah, VL’s had read rights only. the rest nothing
This was actually a very helpful area of the forums back during the days of 100+ families in MW. Widely used for families to recruit allies, to announce wars, to announce changes in allies, to make it known when dishonorable raids/wars were happening, and to put a stop to vultures.
