Christmas/New Years would be the obvious ones usually, Easters coming up shortly, so maybe throw those in

People must be complete outcasts if they spend their holiday times playing a 20 year old game.


We clearly know Equinox will be doing it

Replying to your posts or even acknowledging you on this forum is obviously a waste of my time
took you a while, rit, glad finally you realized that!

@tribunal idea: we don't have enough eople in the community. In League the community votes go in 10's of thousands to avoid variance/grief/people having a bad day, that's one.
Another argument against it is that cases there are ANONYMOUS, it would be literally impossible to have that here. People may be (or in my case - are) biased and vote punish no matter what, just because they dislike the player.

There's good stuff related to it obviously, but those two arguments outweight it imo

However, I would also like to add other dates relevant to War2's history like the anniversary of the game release or anniversary of this server.  I will try to add what I can from my own research but I thought I would create this thread to see if there are any special dates that any members of the community feel should be added to this calendar.

Good thought! Some generic dates would be release of WC, WC2, expansion pack, Kali, BNE. Could also include info related to some of the major fan contributions, like the Occult, Kpuds, etc. There's probably others but I didn't start playing 'til '04, I think most of the boom was before that. Burnt or iL might have a launch date for war2.ru. The WC2 Festival is an important entry too; I know it's in July each year but the specific date probably varies, so that one may have to be added manually. Have you talked with Burnt yet about the calendar in general? 

A great way to make the calendar idea more useful & practical would be to delegate the ability to add events to the users that might use it, like USA-Archer who's running his own tournies. The built-in SMF calendar would be great for that but embed options are pretty limited. If a two way sync could be set up between SMF calendar and GCal that'd be perfect, but it'd take some fancy coding if it's even possible.

A link to the polling board could even be added to the website urging players to participate in voting.  I'm not sure how much work is involved in doing this, but for more exposure, I'm sure there's a way to add a "Latest Poll: Title of Poll" feature in the welcome message for the War2Bne channel. 

Probably doable, but that's iL's domain. Embedding a poll into the website is definitely possible and something I can do; probably have to hand-pick relevant polls by ID for that, like the client vote.

This is exactly the type of response I've been waiting for on this thread.  I will research all of these dates and add them to the calendar today.  We could post things like this in the format This Day In WarCraft II: WarCraft II First Released 1995 or something like that.

Great recommendation.  I will talk to USA-Archer about this.  It looks like it's possible to sync SMF calendar and Google Calendar but we would only be able to sync the events to the Google Calendar by posting them from the SMF calendar.  I have read that there are problems with user permissions though as it involves using gCalSync.  I don't recommend even trying it.  I've only been able to research information from a few years back.  I've posted this on the Simple Machines forum to see if we're able to do something like this: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=535150.0

Some valid points but I think it could still work in our current state and to the benefit of our current state.  We've had some polls on here already and I think the results of them have been pretty justified.  Here are a few pros to doing this:

1. Gives players who are not already on the forum more of a reason to participate. 
2. Certain people will no longer cry about the admins being biased.  I'm sure they'll shift it into some other grievance but it's hopefully a step toward reducing the negative impact the subject is having on the server. 
3. Eliminates server rules.  Ganz could no longer claim there isn't a rule for karma.

Admins could still participate in the vote.  I don't see a reason to make it anonymous (it would be nice though).  After a member of community presents their case, other members are able to debate the case while the vote is in progress.  I think most members can distinguish the rational arguments from the irrational and a fair punishment will be served. 

For instance, if I go to present my case on the forum with my screenshot (from a certain folder o_o) like the one attached here I could say "Look! Claw is hacking! Ban this fool!".  Someone like myself would argue that this is not actual proof that you have been caught hacking.  In all likelihood, even considering the bias of a few people, I don't think the majority will vote to ban you.

I think the administration at this point makes good decisions but I've also seen some irrational decisions made over the years such as Dugs banning someone without proof (also attached).

I dont care if community wants or doesnt want to participate, theyre free to register, free to post, free to join and play in the tournaments. I am not a democrat and would never give power to the people. I prefer admin/mod system with transparent decisions and i always speak up the moment i see incoherence or injustice.
Funny how you say things like:
"  Someone like myself would argue that this is not actual proof that you have been caught hacking"
but totally forget what your initial reason to start the "klaw" album was. It was to prove that i was indeed a hacker and to get me banned, so you yourself were among the biased, retarded people.

let him claim whatever, he's simply wrong and no matter how many people claim that, they will still be wrong. Most of the people are retarded, biased fucktards and giving them real voting power would be destructive. My 3 cents, but iL seems to have faith in the masses, so who knows what he's going to decide.
We actually have a demonstration of what votes of the masses look like. See the rules thread - people decided that's the rules they want and then bitch about admins executing them. Pathetic.

Thanks for your input on this.  I suppose we agree to disagree.  You do make a good point and this also works fine but I still prefer my idea over it for reasons I've already specified.

but totally forget what your initial reason to start the "klaw" album was. It was to prove that i was indeed a hacker and to get me banned, so you yourself were among the biased, retarded people.

When you claim you hack, people begin to believe it.  The album is more of a joke to me at this point and really meant as a joke here.  A lot of epic Claw moments in that album.  I was never able to gain any solid proof and that's the reason I've never brought it to the attention of the admins.  I wouldn't get too worked up about it. ;)

Archer has access to post events on the calendar but I'm not sure if he has posted anything yet.
