» The Ghosts of Onyx Is Moving to REDDIT!

Apr 17, 2014 - 12:33 AM - by Tender Bisquit
That's right Folks!

We are finally trying something new to revamp the site. This time, rather than go with the tedious task of redesigning the entire site and trying to add features in an outdated community format - that being vBulletin... well, a forum for that matter. We will be strictly using our subreddit at /r/ghostsofonyx to discuss games, content, music, movies and general chit chat that always happened on the forums before. We will keep our domain, but after our hosting expires in about a year or so, the domain will simply redirect to our subreddit. So, what does all of this mean to you?

First, if you don't have one already, and you wish to remain up-to-date with the GoO dealings, you will need to create a Reddit account. Simply go to the link, click register, and set up an account... IT'S FREE! Once you have registered, go to /r/ghostsofonyx (literally just put that after "...reddit.com") and click on the subscribe button. Third, post a brief intro in the sticky thread. From there, our moderators (Bisquit, Dev, Stick, Tony, Kal, Ambrose) will add your Ghost emblem (flair) and add you to the approved list so that you may then begin to post new threads and such.

Now, you may notice some things about this new setup. The most notable would be that we are now technically a "public" group. Anyone using Reddit will be able to reply to threads that have already been posted. However, they will not be able to post new threads. Essentially, this makes the public as a whole "Prowlers." Which brings me to my second point. We have consolidated our ranks to just Ghost, Spectre, and Wraith. A person will only get Ghost after they have been subscribed to our subreddit for awhile and have "made their presence known." People know them and generally like them. No strict requirements to meet. If they are known and liked, they are able to post. Which brings me to my last point. Posting will still follow the rules we have here (which have been posted on our subreddit as well). Anyone not following those rules will be dealt with.

In the end, my suggestion would be to go there and take a look around. You will learn a hell of a lot better from messing with what you can and cannot do than from me trying to detail everything in this announcement.

That's it! WE hope to see you all join us on Reddit and enter a new stage for our long-standing community! Here's to many more years!
