    A New Chapter for the Kotor Community!

    The porting rule was always a bit arbitrary. There is no need for further discussion on the subject publicly, the point of the rule updates are to encourage modding by allowing sources that people were probably using already without acknowledging. Now we know what people are using without being caught off guard. Any issues that come up because of it will be addressed if they happen.
  2. Hey Kotorians (yes I want to make that a thing) – I am excited to be announcing a big update to the Kotor community. The short version is Deadlystream and /r/Kotor are moving forward with a merger of our communities. So what is happening? Immediately we will begin co-moderating Deadlystream and /r/Kotor. I am being added as mod to /r/Kotor and Snigaroo is joining Deadlystream as an admin, while Goat is joining as a moderator. We will be expanding staff cooperation in the coming months. Moderation of the /r/Kotor Discord will be shared and modding channels have already been added to the discord. This will become the official discord for Deadlystream going forward. Additionally, wee will also be cross-posting content across communities to encourage /r/Kotor subscriber engagement on Deadlystream and working on increasing modder participation on /r/Kotor. We hope these actions lead towards growth for both communities. What about rules? Each community will still have a unique set of rules, processes and procedures to follow. Deadlystream’s forum based community and the reddit community are very different beasts, each with a different need we fill for the community, our rules will never be 100% aligned but we will align where it makes sense. We will have more information announced over the coming weeks while Sniggles and I work on our integration ideas and planning. Speaking of rule updates, we do have two changes that will be implemented beginning today and they are as follows; · Our rule around porting of content being banned This rule is being replaced by the following rule: · Mods and Assets that are of the same game series (ie KoTOR 1, KoTOR2 and SWTOR) can be ported between games and uploaded to Deadlystream. Porting from other copyright game assets is not allowed, although any fan created content (even from other games) can be hosted at Deadlystream as long as there is no copyright on said mods, files and/or assets. You will still need to abide by all other mod hosting rules. -All mods submitted going forward will require all modder's to fill out 1 additional field, this field is called "Contains Port Content", it is filled out by selecting either yes or no from the drop down menu. -Any modder that has ported content will also be required to fill out a second field called, "Source of Ported Content", this will be a free text field that the modder can describe where his ported content is from. · Rule 19: "All content on Deadlystream must be uploaded by the original creator/owners of the content. Uploading content that is owned by someone else is strictly prohibited, unless explicit permission can be demonstrated by the uploader. If you are found to upload content that is owned by another person without explicit evidence of permission, the first offense will result in a warning via PM and removal of said content. Any additional infractions will result in a permanent ban. Deadlystream Staff will from time to time reach out to authors of content not currently hosted on Deadlystream to see if there is an interest in having their content uploaded to Deadlystream. This activity should only be performed by Deadlystream staff members." This rule is being changed/updated to: · "All content you upload must have been created by you or given permission for use in your mod by the original author. In the event that there is a mod (which you did not create) that needs to be uploaded for preservation to Deadlystream, the following will occur; - The community member will message a moderator via PM with the mod attached and any other information about the mod and about where you downloaded it from. - The admin will follow the “Guidelines for Re-uploading Abandonware Mods” (look for this in the coming days). - If admin sees that the mods meets the guidelines, admin shall upload said mod. - The uploaded mod will have a disclaimer stating “it is not actively supported and that responses to support requests should not be expected.” Please note: Removal of a mod upon request from verified mod authors will be honored, please reach out to an admin for assistance.” Snigaroo, myself and the rest of the staff are very excited about what the future holds for Kotor and our communities. This is only the beginning, there is much more to come. May the force be with all of us! -Tyvokka

    New Site Layout/Format

    I probably can change it, it will need to be something custom I do, not something I am looking to do immediately.

    What type of phone, os version and web browser are you using? Modders account will still be a thing, I just need to update how people can apply / sign up for them. I believe this can be changed, I will have to test it a bit before deploying.

    I dont personally have any issues with this theme as is, the point is to have just the one theme that can dynamically fit to the resolution size of your screen. But I hear your concerns so I will think about it more.

    New Site Layout/Format

    Thanks for the input, we will adjust as needed. I hesitate the add any additional themes but I will keep it in mind. Please do note this is not the final form, just an intermediary step that had to be taken to continue developing the interface of Deadlystream. Thanks for your patience through it all and please keep submitting bugs, ideas and general feedback. I am listening! Preferably keep it to this forum though.

    There isn't anything specific to PMs but I may have just missed that.

    Still IPB, found some good wiki enhancements to the pages app. I like the one I found but I dont really want to maintain a "bridge" between the two apps long term, once they have an SSO solution I will take another look.

    The Times They Are a-Changin'

    The Times They Are a-Changin' After what seems like years(oh wait...) I am excited to announce the release of the latest Deadlystream overhaul next Wednesday (5/23). What's New: New theme - Updating the homepage and forum to have a more up-to-date look and feel. New forums - We have had a large backlog for new forum requests and they will be fulfilled beginning next week. Clubs - The ability for members to create and manage their own micro-communities within Deadlystream. Much like sub-reddits or the "social groups" feature of LucasForums. Chat - Not exactly new but the chat room is coming back to a forum near you! Bookmarks - Allows any member to save content and come back to it later (think reddit save feature). Wiki - Adding wiki functionality to Deadlystream to make tutorials and general knowledge sharing more intuitive. Discord - We will be endorsing an official Discord for the KoTOR community and displaying Discord stats on Deadlystream directly. More to come soon. Admin tools - A much needed update to admin and moderator tools for the staff to help make their lives easier. What's Changin': Gallery and Blogs - Modernizing and adding new features to both applications, making them easier to use and adding some must have features. Community Engagement - Updates to polls (surveys), raffles and awards. We want to see a big uplift in the number of community events hosted by both Staff and the community as a whole. Downloads - Many small enhancements to the downloads section and many optimizations to make downloads faster and easier. Login and Profiles - Login with discord, steam and google and new fields to display your steam and discord users directly on your user profile. Premium Members - Additional premium only features such as DS email accounts, chat rooms, forums and more. New Users - Updates to initial communication to new users, helping them understand Deadlystream and the KoTOR community overall. Modders Account - Focusing on advertising this feature to the community, its free and provides a bigger upload limit, access to a new modders only forum, and additional features around the site. Bans - More transparency around bans, why a member has been banned and how long the ban is for. Staff - We will have more announcements around available positions and general staff updates in the near future. Other - Hundreds of small tweaks to posting, uploads, downloads, user profiles and the overall user interface. What's happenin': 5/23 - we will release the site update, forums will be updated immediately, the front(home) page will be down. June - roll out of new features, forums and general updates. Optimization of the site and new features throughout the month. Mid-June - Discord integration, community announcements / updates. July - Homepage will be brought back online, tweaks to the site and features as needed. New admin tools rolled out. I am personally very excited to be able to finally announce these changes. Any questions are more than welcome. May the force be with us all!
