    Exclamation Long, but important: ALL Guild members (IWG, IBRSC, IFRP)

    We have finally gotten our collective shite together and created a master list of all guild members. I won't bother to go into the technical details, but suffice to say that this is a Very Good Thing(tm).

    What does this mean to you?

    It means you will be able to keep your contact updated with us, and all of the Lundeguilds sites hosted on this server will be able to share data so we can create some really fun new websites and features. For example, with this master database, we can now easily see which of our wenches are "Battle Bitches" - women who are members of both the IWG and the Mercs guild. Or, we can access the info from who is in the Privateers Guild if we need it - like this.

    What that also means is that the database knows which guilds each person belongs to, so we can (for example) offer specific benefits to people in two or more guilds, easily see where there are mix-ups in guild ID numbers, and make sure that duplicate guild numbers are never issued. (It doesn't happen often, but it has happened.)

    It also means that once you're in the system, lists like the woefully neglected IWG chapter list on this site will be more accurate and up to date, with less work on Lars' or my part. Yay for less data entry and better accuracy! When new local madames are elected, the info can be easily updated ONCE, and it will be reflected everywhere that local's chapter info is listed.

    Please note - we WILL be building in the ability to supress your information, if you do not wish to appear on any of the rosters. In most situations, we will probably only display your faire name anyway - but if you haven't given us a faire name, we will likely only use your first name and the first letter of your last name, as shown in the Privateers roster. But even then, if you didn't even want your first name listed, we are building in the ability to supress that.

    So what's next?

    We're finishing up a tool that will allow you all to update your contact information with us. I'll be posting a link to it when it's done, but I will need you all (including IBRSC, IFRP, etc) to update your information in some sort of timely fashion. Please keep an eye on this thread for more information and instructions.

    And of course... the usual caveats...


    Lars and I have been busting our booties de-duping the guild master lists to combine them into one main list. Because some names are particularly common, and we had to do this by hand, expect that there MAY be a few mix-ups. We'll work quickly to get mix-ups resolved in a timely fashion, but please don't freak out if information looks wrong at first.

    In order to set things up so that you can acces your own information to edit, we will likely be asking you to authenticate with your guild ID and your last name, at which point you will be able to set your email address, password and a reminder word. Once that has been set, you will use your email address and password to login to update your other contact informatiion.

    While we realize that someone COULD create the master account as someone else if they know the person's last name and guild ID, we will be monitoring the input carefully, and we'll be able to quickly resolve any issues that come from that. Plus, I don't really expect that to be a problem with this group. But again - if you try to create the account and it say it's already been created, don't panic - just contact us and we'll get it resolved.

    PS - my stupid "r" key is still behaving badly, so forgive the typos

    Yep - you'll be able to do all that. Down the line (NOT in the next month or so), I'll be building in more tools for elected officials, like the ability to email all people the local via a web form, etc.

    Once we have everything set up, it opens the doors to a slew of cool things that we can do - including having guild elections online, since every member would be accounted for, and couldn't vote twice.

    Lots of good stuff ahead. I can't give you any timelines at this point (other than the contact list update form thingie should be done within a week or so), but everything I've wanted to do for ages and couldn't was only impossible because we didn't have a master database.

    That totally rocks. And it's a hell of a lot easier and more secure than what we were trying: having all the members of the Yahoo group fill out a form on the group's homepage.
