Yearbook, faceclaims etc

Amelle has left Sonora. The yearbook was a voluntary project run by her, and so this means there will be some changes, unless anyone wishes to pick it up as a project (this may involve doing so from scratch, though we will ask for handover if anyone is keen).

We’re looking at incorporating pictures into the new profiles or the student list as a bare minimum, and possibly finding other features to replace the yearbook (e.g. OOC awards such as ‘frequent poster’ to appear on profiles or in a ‘hall of fame’). Whilst we work on that, we wanted to ask your opinions on faceclaims. Recently rules have been changed on this (e.g. posting requirements) or requests have been made and denied by Amelle (e.g. re-using old faceclaims). We prefer decisions to be made by everyone at the site, as they affect everyone using it. These two questions are hereby open for discussion, along with any other thoughts/feedback people have on the subject of yearbooks/student awards/face claims. Whilst chatzy is the best medium for live discussion, please take a note/screenshot of any discussions that take place, as things tend to get pushed out before everyone can see them. You can also post your opinions below this.

    Hi all, Following discussion in the staff chatzy, a new structure has been decided upon for Sonora. These changes aim to ensure that responsibilities are shared out between more people, and to give... more

      The position of librarian is being covered for this term, and sign ups will be posted at the end of the week, so library monitors, there is no need to panic.

      • Adding my thoughtsLouis Valois et al, Wed Mar 29 03:07
        I've just been reading through the comments, and everyone seems to have some really great points. Let me add my thoughts in a hopefully coherent fashion: 1)Yearbooks: incorporating these into the... more
        • Agreed...Brockerts, Wed Mar 29 03:30
          about the posting requirements. I feel like last year when we had to do so many, I neglected replies. However, with regards to the long gone authors, sometimes people come back though.

            As one of the returning authors mentioned - it has been over 10 IC terms since my last character graduated - I thought I might as well add my opinions. This is sort of rambling, so keep with me if... more
            • Not one but..Brockerts, Tue Apr 4 10:56
              I fully agree about yearbook surveys being exhausting.
            • Any more returners?Selina, Mon Apr 3 19:52
              Thanks for the input, Jen. It's good to know that as a returning author you wouldn't have found that upsetting or off-putting. If there are any other returning authors who would like to voice their... more

        1) Yearbook: If nobody else claims it, and everyone doesn't mind waiting a term or two until I get other site stuff working on the new server, as well as getting profiles going, I can incorporate a... more
        • Mine tooNewells, etc., Tue Mar 28 22:20
          I agree with everything Nathan said. I am especially interested in emphasizing part of his 3rd point: authors should be allowed to choose to release theirs or not. It could be easily noted on a list... more
          • CompromiseBrockerts, Tue Mar 28 22:36
            How about reusing the ones from the actor/model already taken list/ ones that didn't finish (except younger versions of people who did cuz I had like multiple pics of a couple of mine) but not the... more
      • My thoughtsBrockerts, Tue Mar 28 20:19
        I suggest getting rid of the one about how many posts you have to do to claim a face but NOT allowing people to reuse old face claims. I'd rather not have people take away ones I've been using since... more
        • Re: My thoughtsNathan, Tue Mar 28 21:00
          I'm not against claiming faces for periphs, however, that's going to put dibs on a lot more people if it is used heavily, so if we do allow periph claims, I think we'd have to allow multiple... more
          • Well then...Brockerts, Tue Mar 28 21:05
            I change my mind on the periphs thing because I DO NOT WANT multiple people having the same claim AT ALL (other than identical twins) Thanks. And yeah, that was it. Except we'd do them at the... more
      • OpinionDH Skies, Tue Mar 28 20:12
        With faceclaims, I think it would be weird to have two people in school at the same time with the same face but I would be open to: Re-using any claims of characters who don’t finish Re-using ones... more
