    The threads go back quite a while, yes. Unfortunately, most of those members are no longer here. Therefore we have had to restructure things into a format that works for the group we have. That's where the 'new group' thing comes from. :)

    I see, Swan! :)

    ...and I wonder how the mission thing works. What are the aims (beside of having fun, of course)? After five completed missions, one becomes a master. Is that the end? Are there more steps/ranks? :confused:

    Here's the thread I just posted about that on the off-site.

    There are more steps. grand-master. council-member. I envision more, but for now that's where it's at.

    the aim, besides having fun, is to grow as users and people. Instead of having padawans going on missions to get them kind of up-to-speed and pay their dues, we all do it together, because there's always more room to grow, and it's more inclusive. And it's to promote activity in this thread (by having a major activity to bring everyone together), in the organization, as users (discovering new places, etc), and on the boards (sending people out to connect elsewhere).

    and it changes based on the mission. new users should always be on our minds somewhere, so this current mission is about pressing that a bit: being welcoming and encouraging to new users and getting us over to the WNU- see if anything sticks- maybe swim around a bit more over there.

    Thanks for the PM and the links. :)

    It's interesting to read about CJ and I totally welcome everyone who supports us in WNU. May it with ideas or with welcoming newbies or maybe even taking them as padawans. :D

    You have a cool gang in here. :cool:

    Thanks. :D :cool: It certainly is all very loose around here. There's a lot of room for growth in our direction.

    Didn't the CJ and NUS start out as part of the WNU?

    I don't recall that ever being the case. I'm seeking confirmation now though.

    I enjoy that Fred is like the Godfather of the CJ now. :cool:

    No, it was started here, though we did have new-user help threads that taught stuff like mark-ups and... other stuff I can't remember. :p they were called the classes... or something.

    this did evolve from those, though. We were trying to get a permanent home/social thread somewhere and (btw this wasn't me... I can't remember who had ties to the EUC... it mighta been imperial hammer....) because of what we had done in the WNU with those classes, someone thought we could do something similar here, in a social thread. It was genius. Probably the best move we ever made. and the poor mod that had the wool pulled over his eyes for that one.... [face_laugh] :p

    edit: oh yeah they were called the CJ classes. there's a bad link to them in NUS-5, since they're so old they didn't make the move. :p

    "CJ Classes : our thread in the WNU to help teach new users about starting threads, using mark-ups, and what to do when flamed or baited...the basics, if you will" -typocelchu
