Normal Order Restored

Posted by Copy_Ninja (Administrator) at Apr 2 2017, 07:43 AM. 15 comments

So,

As it turns out, I can't just go on a rampant power grab and change the forum to anything I please. Apparently people "get upset" and you "have to think about people other than yourself" and "there's two other Admins and we both outrank you." In line with this thought process, we have reverted to our original theme. You may return to discussing Dragon Ball here.

Thanks for all of you that appreciated and supported the change. And do not worry, our time will rise again.

The Dawn of a New Era

Posted by Copy_Ninja (Administrator) at Apr 1 2017, 07:40 AM. 22 comments

Greetings,

As some of you may know, the forum has had a bit of a dip in activity lately. There's been some speculation as to why. Most seem to think it's because of Discord and claim this because of the clear link between activity drop off and establishment of this feature. I, however, see a different issue. Naruto Boruto: Next Generations is not what we were hoping. We all know this. The poor quality of the series has obviously driven people away from this forum. In order to keep people here, I believe drastic measures need to be taken. I have advocated for change in the past but have met resistance from the staff. With our recent changes, we now have the support for this exciting next step.

I hereby announce our change to a Naruto Shippuden forum!

With the change of focus to a much higher quality series, we are in a better position to attract more members and keep activity in to tip top shape. Now, I appreciate that this is a big change that you will need to adjust to. Obviously for now some references to our old Naruto theme remain but they will be updated in due course. Old topics will remain in the sub-forums for now as an archakrave but I expect there to be Naruto centric topics from now on. To help this along, I've made some slight adjustments to the word filter so you do not stray from our new focus.

As I'm sure you can tell, we now only have one theme. This is due to the reconstruction of the forum while I get to grips with the CSS, all schakrans will return in due time. While I will take any comments in to account, I'm not crazy on this whole "dissent" thing so complaints will only be tolerated to a certain point.

All new rules also apply to Discord.

If you have any issues, ask any member of staff who will be delighted to explain our new direction to you.

Yours sincerely,

God Emperor Hokage Copy_Ninja

Or at least Super Moderators!

Congratulations to Tinny and Drew (Nagito Komaeda) on their shiny new dark blue roles.
They have both done a fantastic job as forum mods so I have every expectation that they will excel as much here.

The RP Lounge, GFX Changes & New Moderators

Posted by Sam (Team Leader) at Feb 25 2017, 12:26 AM. 12 comments


The first attempt at roleplaying on DBZF goes way back to 2005, when I created the topic 'Text Battles'. What began as little more than an auto-hitting one-liner open format quickly turned into the first semblance of a Dragonball RP on this forum.

However, over the many years, we've seen several attempts to create a roleplaying community fall through going all the way back to one of our first Administrators, .Artificial, creating an entire area for it... only for it to not be used at all whatsoever :lol:

We've repetitively shut down the idea because we just didn't have the community. Well, ladies and gentlemen: now we do.

Over the last few years in the old Battle Zone - which has now been renamed the Roleplay Lounge (we're in the process of organizing the graphics and the roleplaying out! :p ) - roleplaying has steadily grown in this community. Until Tinny messaged me this past summer, I had no idea we even had any roleplaying going on whatsoever. It turns out, it had been going on in the shell of a section that had become the Battle Zone: a confusing area that was once meant for graphics battles and other competitions, now morphed to fit the roleplaying community. I was immediately skeptical, despite the fact that roleplaying had been going on there in some form for at least a year or two already, if not longer.

However, Tinny asking me to create an announcement of the second DBZF Roleplaying Tournament made me decide to give this a go. How many times had I said no to this idea? Had we all said it just wouldn't work with this community? Without even giving it a try for myself, how could I say that? I saw our best shot in years and I took it.

What resulted was several new friends that I cherish and a shocking second place finish to the reigning champion Tinny in a tiebreaker tournament that lasted several months. We truly put our time, effort and all our love into the characters we developed - the people we faced along the way in the various matches - and got to know each other as more than just roleplayers and became truly good friends. I can safely say that deciding to join the roleplaying community on this site has been one of the best decisions I've made over the last dozen years on staff.

It's with great pride that I'm able to announce that Daemon Keido and Goddess Ultimecia have been selected to function as not only new staff and Moderators for a new and prospering section - but have also shown their loyalty, friendship and dedication to both these boards and a deep passion for what they love doing. They'll be responsible for controlling content, providing lore and producing a variety of ways for everyone to feel welcome in this new arena, giving direction every step of the way. All future roleplaying events, announcements and tournaments will henceforth be put in the new RP Lounge. :)

The graphics battles and tournaments will now be held in GFX Showdown, a subforum under 'Graphical Showcase'. It's my goal in 2017 to revitalize this community as well. So stay tuned. After all, you must become the change you wish to see. ;)

Thanks to all of you who have gotten involved. I never thought I'd see the day where an RP section would be the most active non-Dragonball area. But here it is. I'm drafting the announcement. Thank you to all the staff - Tim and Copy_Ninja especially - for being open to this experiment. And a special thanks to Meowth for putting this section together and giving us an opportunity to do it proper. Thank you for putting up with my spamming, incessant pestering and rambling. I've known you over half my life and I don't know how you've put up with me this long. :D

There's so many of you that helped make this become a reality. I can't possibly thank you all. I hope to see more of you involved in both the creative writing and roleplaying aspects of the RP Lounge in the days, months and years to come.

It's an understatement to say how proud of DBZF I am today.

Thank you - all of you, ^_^

DBZf Pokemon Tournament

Posted by EMIYA (Super Moderator) at Jan 6 2017, 05:52 PM. 7 comments

Your good friend and moderator "EMIYA" is going to be holding a Pokemon tournament for the DBZ Forum. A few of you have already show interest in the previous topic "DBZf Pokemon Talk" but I wanted to try to spread the word here. The tournament will be done using the Pokemon Battle simulator.

Pokemon Battle Simulator

Some of you already know about this but for those who don't, basically this is a place to do battle simulations. You can do different types of battles, randomize, create your own teams, pick your moves, etc. If you need help with anything, feel free to ask me as I'll be sticking out and just getting the tournament in order.
---
---

Tournament Rules

1.) You may decide 6 of your own Pokemon as long as they fall in the OU (Overused) or under category. So this means no "Ubers" like Mewtwo,

2.) You may choose a different "Item" for your Pokemon to hold, but each one must be different. So if one has "Leftovers" another Pokemon can't have it as well.

3.) You may choose any ability for your Pokemon.

4.) You may choose any four moves however they may not include OHKO moves. (Note: For those more keen on the rules here, if there's any other specific moves that you feel need to be banned, do tell me)

5. Each Pokemon will be set at Level 100.

6.) You may choose whichever "Nature" you like.

7.) Matches will last 2-3 rounds.
---
---

Reward:


$15 worth of Amazon items (8 people tournament)

$25 worth of Amazon items (16 people tournament)

$50 worth of Amazon items (32+ people tournament.

Note: I will provide the cost and shipping services, however (especially for the higher rewards) I may ask you to provide any international costs if they come up.
---
---

Other than that, please sign up and if you have any questions, go ahead and ask. Consider this just another moment of good will from your good friend EMIYA/Brofist.

Intro
Its gonna be a short write up this month but here we go...
Guess who's back with a brand new rap(copyright what).So what happened this time around? Not much to be honest, not much at all, but to keep up with this segment and for me to stay relevant(mostly for me to stay relevant) let's start off with a random quote from a member ďIf we're all just part of a computer programme, how often are we switched off?Ē Post below who you think said it.

Battle Zone
Let's talk about it. I thought the tournament would be over by the time I posted this but it's not, shucks. I mentioned it last month and I will say it again, this place is heating up. And it's no coincidence, having great members in this section like Goddess Ultimecia and Daemon Keido among others. Rpíing is making a come back so if you're on the fence or not sure about playing, hit up these members and they will convince you. Talking about great members and a hot section, almost seems like this place could use a moderatorÖnudge, nudge, wink, wink, someone like the members I just mentioned, nudge TimÖÖ.

A Short Appearance
A forum great came back for a little bit. Rogue dropped in and did the whole tough person act (that gender neutralness right there, oh baby). I stopped to think and wonder if Rogue was gonna help Tim around the forum, you know put in some work, after some pause I thought nah Rogues just here to mess around and leave. Oh but I got some good tips from the great, I have to add pictures in this newsletter and glitter that is key, so thatís what Iím going to do.

Rule Changes
There were a few rule changes here and there, nothing major but I decided not to do a big write up for. Itís really short nothing much to say so I will link it for those who missed it, Itís important we uphold the law (scratched out), rules.
http://dbzf.co.uk/topic/10002664/1/#new

The End
So this is the part where we have a an interview at the end of the segment but Iím sorry but that interview was horrible, you know what Iím not sorry. Accelerator was the member I interviewed great guy horrible interviewee. Our interviewee next month is Tim, so it may or may not be juicy, no promises. Here is some glitter to end it, see you cats next month.

Little Bit of This, Little Bit of That

Posted by Tim (Prince) at Sep 29 2016, 05:02 AM. One comment

Hi all,

Firstly, please see the recent Rule Changes as posted by Sam yesterday.

I would just like to let you all know about a few minor changes I have made to the forum.
- Calendar has been disabled (if you legit use this please let me know) in order to tidy up the menu bar
- Chat link now directs to our Discord channel instead of IRC (RIP in peace)
- Board Rules link is now cleaner and should accurately reflect the new rules
- DBZF Staff List is now updated and can be found here

That pretty much covers all the little housekeeping things.
Sorry for the post so soon after Sam's - I have a rather unreliable internet connection at home right now and it is very hit and miss as to whether I can actually do anything!

A reminder to everyone that you need to PM myself (or another active member of staff) on Discord to ensure you get masked and can do all the fun stuff like chat to us in the voice channels and such.

Cheers,
Tim
