[SUGGESTION] Display board operation adverts

Just an idea after popping back on the server after an extended absence last night, I noticed a number of display board have been put up around the supply crate, but they all have the same information on them.

I personally think it might be a good idea to advertise some other things the unit does on these boards - turn them into a sort of 'water-cooler notice board'. We could include:
  • An advert of the forthcoming week's operation
  • Promotion for people to become members
  • Link to the website (just in case people forget)
  • Advertisements for trainer positions (I'll be coming back into my usual capacity as a trainer soon enough, going to make a start on a BI SOP some point this week, might do a fixed wing one as well, I'll see!)
  • 'Pic of the week' board?
  • Member promotions
  • Names of prominent community members people can ask about questions and the like

Just my two wee pennies.

This is a fantastic Idea and easy for management to implement.

 If any one with some Photoshop skills would be able to knock some sample and submit them to management in a PM it  would be greatly appreciated.

If you would like to make one these are the five things we would like to see and or have room for. Please PM examples to management and do not post them in this thread.

• An advert of the forthcoming week's operation
• Promotion for people to become members
• 'Pic of the week' board?
• Member promotions

If you write down what Dimensions they need to be I can probably bang a few out tonight (or in two months).

I generally like this idea but I kinda dislike the 'Prominent Members' thing. I mean we all know how ACE works and at least every member should know how the Squads and their command structure work. As I understand this this isn't about technical problems in which case I could understand, but for gameplay purposes. As such this would project some sort of 'special council' of members with supreme knowledge who are somewhat better than the rest, which is against TWC rules ("The TWC environment should be an environment in which all are one group. No super-secret-no others-allowed internal groups, no cliques, no clubs, or anything else resembling this."

Fair point that Sax, maybe I should have rephrased that to 'Look for people with the unit insignia on their arms' or something similar. I just meant it as a sort of 'initial buddy' sort of thing where people new to the server can know who to look for in they need help

I'll have a gander tomorrow at making something potentially useful.

On that note, could we have a new forum thread for pic of the week submissions? Every Sunday night (or whenever) it gets cleared out by admin and the best picture is used on the board for the following week. Pics could be from Ops, training or public, so long as they're suitably epic

But is everyone in this community as helpful as eachother?, is everyone as patient, active and pleasant to talk to as everyone else? No. But Prominent members shouldn't be it's title. 
Is it a group? No. Is it a title? No. It's simply a list of people that are competent, active and happy to help. People often don't like to speak up when they are not aware of something, this combined with the fact that some members of this community, myself included at times, are not always the most level headed, calm and approachable people on the server. (Something shown when people accidentally chuck frags or fire at base only to be berated with "OH MY FUCKING GOD WHAT ARE YOU DOING, YOU'RE SUCH AN IDIOT WHY HAVEN'T YOU REBINDED EVERY SINGLE KEYBINDING TO ctrl+tab+space+F2+key, FUCKING SHIT-TAC SCRUB" 

I've seen people get angry at new players for asking questions while also seeing other people put aside their own enjoyment in order to help someone out. 

If I were to join a server without much knowledge of how things I personally would be afraid to ask anyone, but if there were some fucking huge billboard that said "Don't know how to get your Radio working? Ask Phill (just a random member, no real reason its Phiill)" I would be much more inclined to do so rather than attempt to lonewolf or straight up disconnect. Maybe putting some basic instructions on billboards would help as well.

So yeh, I like it

Quote'Prominent Members
This was meant in my eyes to me and Fakematty as the people should be aware of more than others but maybe I saw this in the wrong light.

I agree with you Saxon that no member is more equal than another. But and there is a but how do I explain trainers ? It is minefield and something that maybe have discussed SOMEWHERE ELSE in more detail.

Although like I said I envisioned it as me and Fakematty on that board but we will have to see I haven't even seen the examples so nothing is certain at the moment it is only idea.

Twiggy's point is valid but not the solution. The problem is YOU all should be that Prominent Member and members not doing this should really question why they are a member.

i can and will and do, happily help anyone that has issues joining, questions in game ect ect lol, as i am currently a public player and quite experienced in this, it may help with any new players scared to ask people things ect.

so yea people can ask me if they want im happy to help 24/7.

lol but obv thats up to management , im just sayin i dont mind, my name could be used ,and i do already help in this area quite a bit.

i could also send the message of what NOT to end up like? hahahaha

NOTE : they way i would explain a trainer is just simply sayin "these are the people that go the extra mile for the group but they are in no way different to any other member"

Maybe just putting a list of trainers up would be a good idea. Might give people a bit of an impetus to sign up as a trainer too maybe? We could have trainers who specialise in keeping an eye out for new public players or something similar? That's another conversation altogether though I think, let's just get something ready first then deal with the whys and wherefores.

Anybody else got any ideas for things we could show on the boards? I thought earlier a suggested basi load out might be a good idea? To each their own, obviously.

@Management/anyone in the know - How do you want these boards submitted? JPEGs?
