Louloudian Affairs: A Team To-Do List


#1

It was decided during one of our 2017 Gatherings that we would be sharing our to-do list publicly. We hope to offer transparency in regards to our workload, and keep our community up to date on new features and items as they progress. This topic will reflect what we’re currently chipping away at together, along with any other reasonable things we’d like to complete in the future. The list below will be modified as projects complete or shift. Feel free to post any related questions or comments on this topic. You may also contact an @Overseer privately if you prefer.

Species Guides & Chat Avatars
Status: Ongoing Muse task
Our existing chat avatars have been saved for use on the future chat platform.
Louloudia-specific species in development for future avatar choices.

A Peacekeeper’s Handbook
Status: Completed
Some minor adjustments being made to update the wording.
A version of this guide will become public in the near future as we continue to organize team information. The plan is for both Peacekeeper & Muse guides to be available for the public to view.

Forum Tips/Basics Thread
Status: WIP as of 2/27/18
This will paraphrase the basics of navigating our forum, some of the newer functions available to you, member trust levels, common q&a, and what we’ll be able to do with these forum functions in the future!

Lore & Encyclopedia
Status: Encyclopedia coming soon
Finished flora/fauna species along with their basic info, prominent characters in lore, and Spirits will be showcased in a public Encyclopedia. We are currently researching Wiki topic functions on our new forum platform & deciding how to stylize these entries in the most clear, accessible way.

Forum Themes
New forum themes will be coming as we continue to customize. You can switch between our Light & Dark Defaults currently in your User Preferences (click your avatar in the upper right corner, the settings cog, then Interface)

deviantART Group
Status: WIP but open for new members: landoflouloudia.deviantart.com/
We would like to utilize deviantART as a way to share Louloudia’s artwork and create interactions around our lore. This is open for feedback.

Artwork Guidelines & FAQ
Status: Dependent on chat installments
This will pick back up once we know more about how avatars will interact on a new chatting platform.

Various Forum Editing/Organization

  • Discourse Basics Thread
  • Avatar up-sizing (coming in the near future, pending Discourse update)
  • Add/modify subcategories upon request or as needed
  • Create more interactive areas for members
  • Customize category “header” images to match the contents within
  • Seasonal decor & images
  • Potential for “badges” to host earned event items as a type of Inventory function for members
  • Additional user fields/badges/emojis

I love the idea of the Peacekeeper’s Handbook being public.


#3

Agreed!! That is a really good idea. I’m excited!
Everything here is great and I look forward to seeing it!


#4

@Mimew @Jace thank you both so much.

I added a few things and briefly updated the status of a couple points, need to go for now but will add more later.

[size=80]I absolutely adore that this is public and that everyone can see the process of each individual task that’s happening, including where it currently is in time. The little green status additions are super helpful too, it provides a rough time gap of when we could see updates for a potential item on the list.

Love it a lot, really neat addition to Louloudia and I’m glad that the user gatherings helped make this happen.[/size]


#6

@Echelon thanks for your input ;_; I’m really happy about this too, and it seems to help keep me motivated.

went ahead and wrote the rest of our rules so once it’s approved by the rest of our team I’ll be presenting it publicly.


#7

[size=80]Honestly, to-do lists are probably the only thing that keeps me super motivated when I really need to get something done. So, I understand it working here a lot too.
I always have a list when I go shopping and when I have general tasks to do with work or at home, I jot down a quick list to keep me on track and also so I know my progress… It’s surprisingly effective, like wow.[/size]


#8

Chat Etiquette complete.


#9

Added a couple things.

This has been updated and will continue to be routinely. If there is something you’d like to request more transparency on - or something you’re wondering about seeing implemented - please ask!
