Newsletter, Lifetimer Badges And Enormous Tube

Bunch of modernization to get yourself notified, thanked and amused:

1) Newsletter

We've got a proper newsletter for receiving notifications about new releases and related important announcements by e-mail. You can subscribe on right hand panel of http://www.unrealworld.fi frontpage. Serves for those who don't frequent the forums.


2) Lifetimers: get on the forums, get that badge

I dare, challenge and encourage all of you who've got lifetime membership to register on UrW forums and get the honorary badge. There are humble people among you, but getting promoted to lifetime supported group makes it easier to thank you with additional content. Nothing major in this regard yet, but at least a new thanks-video (may 2014) is up and from here on we'll start providing every fresh thanks to the badged lifetimers through the forums. This will be done either by forum group e-mail to according group, or setting up restricted goodies section for the members of honorary lifetime supporter group.

Don't be a badger but get badge. Here's a simple form to follow, after you've registered on the forums:
http://www.unrealworld.fi/urw_lifetime- ... -form.html
(A hall of fame-list of lifetimers will be compiled some time in the future and the form above suits for getting enlisted there as well. For that purpose, you can use it even if you are badged already.)


3) EnormousElk YouTube-channel

This has been requested, and now it's up and running. Here's a monstrous link to enormous tube:
http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnb-9BkV4XG5ah8YhX9b-ug
But it's easy to find also by searching enormouselk on YouTube.
There's is variety videos to browse, follow, share or whatever. Same stuff is also available on http://www.enormouselk.com website.

While offering perks to lifetimers isn't a bad thing, beware the danger of creating a gated community -- it can often create an us-versus-them mentality and increase plaguing by help vampires. Usually a gated community is created due to the presence of an infestation already, but the converse is also true: creating a gated community can isolate good resources from those who need them, making it more likely to cause an infestation.

So long as you bear that in mind and keep in touch with the community on the whole, there shouldn't be a problem. =)

The badge signup doesn't seem to recognize forum accounts by login or email...

Ah, it's not automatic system but every sent form is checked and processed manually.

Oh, ok, thanks for the quick reply. I guess the form validation is rejecting my entry.
"The Forum Account you entered does not appear to be valid."
I tried my login, my email, and my userid (2682) The url to my user profile is too long for that field. so what am I supposed to enter?

Thanks!

Oh, bummer, there seems to be a bug in form check script which rejects forum accounts which include numbers - now that's the reason.

I'll get on fixing it, but meanwhile you can send the same info by e-mail to urw@iki.fi

[EDIT]Script fixed. uipoed1, you can try it now and report if it's ok.[/EDIT]

Hey Sami. Which email address do I use when filling out the form? I think my forum one is different to the one I registered with. In fact I can't even remember which email I used to register the game :(

Any e-mail that currently works and will reach you is fine.
I'll then ask more details by e-mail if I can't sort things out by checking out the purchase/donation archives.
