The World's Top Trophy Hunters

Dec 18 2014 06:57 AM | Roughdawg4 in Announcements

Over the last few weeks I have talked with the top trophy hunters in the world and asked them a few questions about some of the games they have played. Since most of the top 100 are on the site, a majority of them are on imports :)


Here is the interview that you all helped me produce. Thank you for your help.

Also a big thank you to Blondlizard for the idea of the interview

Fluffy is Back

Sep 11 2014 09:27 AM | Roughdawg4 in Announcements

Just when you think she is out, we pull her back in :)


I am happy to announce Fluffy will be returning to the staff. Fluffy always had an open door to come back to the staff after she retired and I am very happy she has decided to return. When we first moved over from zetaboards, her and Captain helped us move and account for every important topic we have as well as setup some of our current checks/balances on community games.



Welcome back

Trophy List Challenge

Aug 22 2014 06:59 AM | Roughdawg4 in Announcements

Now that the summer is coming to an end, the staff and former staff have all come together to play a game and have some fun. Using a standard trophy list, both of our groups have come up with 2 trophy lists for you to complete.


Welcome to the Trophy List Challenge


In the Forum Games and Contests Board, two trophy lists will be posted. If you can complete 50% or 100% of a list you will receive an award. To the 1st person that completes either list, there might be something additional waiting for you as well.



Good luck everyone

Trophy Guide Moderator

Aug 18 2014 06:58 AM | Roughdawg4 in Announcements

With the increase of trophy guides going on the site, we have added a new moderator whose focus will be on trophy guides. CrystalPhoenix has gladly accepted the position :)


His main focus will be editing the guides so they are easier to read and making them look better. He has already helped on a bunch of japan guides by adding pictures and/or adding numbers on choices. His great eye for detail and passion for trophy guides made him an easy choice to help our staff out.



Congratulations Crystal.

Site Email Issues

Jul 15 2014 12:26 PM | Roughdawg4 in Announcements

It was brought to my attention that the automatic emails from the site was not working. This could involve anywhere from getting emails on threads or PM's to password recoveries.


I have fixed the issue so it should be working going forward. If anybody has any issues please let me know.

Two walk in, One walks out

Mar 21 2014 11:09 AM | Roughdawg4 in Announcements

As you already know, Bobbbylight has stepped down from admin.....again. It is really hard when real life gets in the way and we wish him the best. As always, there is a position on the site that is always waiting for him :)


With a spot opening on the staff, we are going to promote Velsu to Moderator. Velsu has shown great potential on the site and gets along with everyone. In a short amount of time, he has been very active and has great ideas about how to make the site better (which already includes the idea for 4 community games).




Congratulations Velsu and welcome to the staff.

Forum Permissions - Guest's View Of Forum/T...

Feb 28 2014 12:34 PM | BobbbyLight in Announcements

As noted a week or two ago, we had some issues with forum permissions and people not being able to see guides/posts in certain areas. This was due to an error in forum permissions which should now be corrected across the board. There is an issue with our forum software that bugged out once we hit 1,000+ forum/sub-forums so I was lucky enough to have to go through the permissions on each of those 1,000+ forums and click the boxes on each one.

For any conspiracy theorists out there, we did not change any permissions on purpose to drive people to join or to stop anyone form seeing guides. It was really just a fix in the forum permissions that needed to get done.

That said, we also have had a handful of guides restricted to certain member groups only. People are wondering why we have done this and the answer is simple. While some people (and I am one of these) think all guides should be view-able to the public, we (as a staff and a site) actually place the guide creators' wishes above all else. That means if someone here writes a guide and they want it to be for premium/junior members only, that is what we allow the guide creator to do.

We allow you to do as you please with the content you create, within the restrictions our forum software allows. That even means if you decide to not be a member here any longer and wish for any guides you created to be taken down, we will do that, no questions asked.

People may wonder how to have guides being hidden from public view can be avoided. While there is no real answer, as it is up to the creator of each guide and how he or she wants it to be shown, a little bit of thanks goes a long way. I've seen it (very recently) said that guide creators shouldn't care about feedback or thanks, they should just write guides and not want anything back. Even if that anything is as simple as a "thank you". I'm pretty sure that thought process is only held by those who use and abuse, not those that have ever contributed to a community. Guides take extensive time and effort to create and some of these creators really appreciate a thank you or even a tip on a certain section that maybe worked better for you. So if you use guides here, why not join and just post a simple thank you for that platinum someone else helped you earn?

This site is nothing without its members and we do not own our members, they control their content. Want to be a junior member? Contribute quality reviews and guides, help with a few boosts. The staff is always watching to see who helps and can be an asset to what is easily the number one source of info on stacking and Japanese games on the internet.

Thanks to everyone who's made this site what it is! We look forward to the future members help us continue making this site what it is as well! Now go get those platinums!
