Please drop by and give us your thoughts on how to increase community involvement at Dustloop, encourage discussion, bring in new players, and whatever else you think needs fixing here.

Forum Upgrade This Weekend (August 1-2)

Jul 31 2015 06:51 PM | shtkn in Home

3.4 to 4.0
We currently run IPS 3.4, and 4.0 was released back in June.

Upgrade Will Be Longer Than Usual
This is a major change, so downtime will be much longer than usual, as I want to download a backup of the servers in case things go horribly wrong. There are no good estimates for how long this will take, but I expect at least a few hours (and possibly a whole day) will be needed.

I plan on starting this late Saturday night if I'm free by then. If not, then Sunday.

Why Upgrade?
The key feature that interests us is front page should be more configurable. The forums should also see slight improvements as well.

Why Didn't You Upgrade Sooner?
This is a major upgrade. Typically this means major parts of the software has been rewritten and as such, certain features may unexpectedly go missing. I was hesitant to upgrade due to this, but seeing as we're trying to make the Front Page actually useful now, and 4.0 promises more options to do so, I've finally decided to bite the bullet.

Xrd Google Doc to Find Players/Matchups

Jul 29 2015 09:15 PM | Chosenninja in Home

Posted Image


Now you're wondering why I've brought you all here. The reason why I decided to create this google doc is basically for the sake of being able to find players for the matchups that you lack or wish to get more experience in. Another reason is to find and identify many of the people who play these characters to varying degrees that many people may not even know of. Since starting Guilty Gear (with Xrd) I had to play a lot of catch up and had a pretty difficult time finding certain matchups. Even OG's lack experience against some of the newer characters who can give trouble, but I noticed specifically harder for a lot to find Bedman, so hopefully an open google doc where people can input their own information will create a much quicker way to find what you're looking for. There was about 1,000 people at EVO this year for Xrd and I'm hoping at least 40 or 50% can find this doc and input info. So just keep sharing.

Also as I'm starting to notice. This is a great way to help identify people that are near your scene that you didn't even know existed. Very great way to start having people come to your casuals so hit em up.

"Time to Make History" Dustloop Revamp...

Jul 28 2015 05:08 AM | huey253 in Home

Hi Dustloop,

As promised, I've created a thread for the resurrection of Dustloop. After receiving feedback, we've realized that one of the biggest issues is...

The Front Page

This includes the lack of articles, informational content, and promotion of community efforts.

How would you change this? Please leave any suggestions for improving this issue as a response to this post. Currently, one of the greatest issues for generating content is a lack of motivation. If anybody would like to help contribute to the front page, please speak up.

Once again, please continue to leave any other feedback regarding issues or potential changes to Dustloop.


And if you want to reply to this topic, use the thread in the Site Feedback section http://www.dustloop....view=getnewpost
