We've got a number of BA members who are interested in the upcoming MMO from Sigil and SOE, Vanguard. We've started a developmental forum for those interested in starting up a possible Vanguard province within Bellum Aeternus.
If you are interested in helping shape this proto-province. Be sure to sound off in the forum, and make it known that you're interested. If you are even more inclined to help lead this province, that's the first step in the process.
Head over to the forum to find out more information.
We appreciate everyone's patience as we experience our latest growing pains -- we're honestly damned proud of the new site, and the possibilities for offering you even more enhancements to your BA gaming experience!
We just enabled the BA Site/Development Feedback forum for your bug-shooting and suggestion-making enjoyment! Please help us manage our improvements and opportunities by using that new forum as your one-stop-fixit-shop for the future!
So, here at Bellum Aeternus, we remain committed to bringing you the most up to date and advanced web page possible...
Well, actually, some random discussion topic made want to test out modifying BB codes to let us do neat things. Of course, I need something to do with a new BB code, so I pondered for a moment, then came up with this example modification:
Without further ado, here is BA doing some random pwning, WoW style:
Introducing the [youtube] bb tag.
Now you can embed YouTube movies directly into pretty much everything on this site (except the wiki). Anyway, the whole point of this post is not so much to show off cool web tricks we can do, but to let everyone know that this site is now undergoing continual enhancement, and we would love to have your input. Have any neat ideas or things you would like to see implemented? Let us know! We are certainly on the look out for new and better ways to do the things we do.
Welcome to the New Site!
There have been some changes to the site, some minor, some major. Look around and check things out.
Cool Things to Check Out The BA Wiki
All of 'The Path' content has moved to our brand new BA Wiki. Almost all of the content is editable by you, and each Province has their own Province page. Some pages are a bit bare, but with your help, that will change soon.
BA Event Calendar
All Provinces can now schedule their events on the new Events Calendar. Right now we have very basic functionality, but Voltaire is working hard to bring improvements like Province Specific Calendars and more.
Good, but not Perfect
We've spent the last month or so making sure that the transition would go smoothly and adding new features to the site, but we're not perfect. Drop by the threads in the BA Members forums to praise or complain about the new site.
Note: It has also come to our attention if you are a visitor and attempting to register for the site that the required Email might not be sending, and there is no way to alert us of this because.. well.. you're not registered. We're troubleshooting this ASAP and should have resolution soon. (posted 8/29)
We will be moving to our new webhosting on Friday, August 25th.
The website will be down starting Friday evening, as we move the final data over. I hope to have the site back up by Saturday, or Sunday at latest. It will take a while for the DNS to Propogate. The Kelthuzad subdomain should remain online during the transition.
There are some changes to Pledgekeeper with the new site - Details Here.
Custom uploaded Forum Avatars will not transfer to the new site. If you uploaded your avatar to the site, make sure you have a backup. Similarly, Signatures hosted in the Gallery will probably not transition. All Gallery Image links will break. All other site data should be transfered completely.
Okay -- new servers are up and going, but your Governors will need to do some installation (namely, setup of channels, etc.) -- so please bear with us for today/tomorrow while I communicate with them and get the new servers fully operational. Expect to see new news posts either on the front page here or in the various Members forums with new server details.
This change was a bit abrupt -- please bear with us while we "punt", as it were, and get our new hosting solutions going!
Governors, please see your various Gov forums for details. Thanks!
We regret to inform you that our current host, Xgamehost (Redemption from WoW: KM) has shut down all TeamSpeak servers with the exception of WoW: KM this evening without warning. We had been working on a backup plan already, and hope to have new servers in place ASAP. Perhaps even on Saturday.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are working hard to get these back up and running. We'll notify you of any changes that need to be made in order to connect to your Province's TeamSpeak server.
Bellum Aeternus has grown in leaps and bounds ever since its founding days in planetside. The majority of our current supported game provinces found their roots and major driving force even in the early beta stages of game development.
Over the past number of months there has been a relatively quiet period in the number of betas and online game releases, but that's all about to change!
"Vanguard - Saga of Heroes" as well as "Lord Of The Rings Online" are just two games about to enter their beta testing phases and not surprisingly our community members are showing a great interest!
So head over to our BA Community Games forum and have a read! Perhaps one of these or any of the up and coming game titles out there could become our next supported province!
Member involvement is what makes things happen, if there is a game YOU have a passion for then share your interest with others. In the future it may be you taking on the role of Governor and steering us into a new evolution of Bellum Aeternus online gaming!
