That would work, but you don't neccessarily have to link to the board. Everytime a board has been set up for the NGDD it is busy for a few weeks to a couple of months, but then people stop using it. That may be because people forget it's there, or it could be people think that we don't need one.

I think a poll is in order. Do you guys think we need an external board like this one, or do you think a plain website will do the job?

A forum has more interactive elements and as long as it is edited well I think it would be great.

Yeah i wish that would actually happen. But by the looks of things its not going to happen anytime soon.

Don't be so sure if the club starts up again we could get a lot of new members.

Too much history. A new thread would be the same way after 380 pages anyway. We want to see the thread get bigger and older. Well, I do.

The main reaseon that I want to start a new thread is to have a proper first page. Something that doesn't just say that we are a bunch of people and that muffins are good and that clocks are bad (which is still true).

Like I said, we can still provide a link back to this thread, showing that we are one of the oldest clubs on NG and we have 380 pages under our belt. There's no real point to continuing this thread if we can't grow it at least one page in a week.

Yeah but hey if alot of new members knew of this club then they would probably join and it would become popular again.

I would like to join as well, if it would be possible.

Also, if I am allowed to join, than I agree with Wylo's idea of a new thread. The first page kept me from joining until I saw the recent posts.

Also, I take it the main idea from the first post changed over the years, what exactly do we do here now?

Response to NG Department of Defense 2006-05-19 00:49:31


I'm game to join. I've been around NG for a lilttle whille now, but have never been active with posting much of anything. I read the first page about muffins and clocks and the last page about regrouping. If you're looking for new blood, I'm interested...just not good with computers.

You don't need to know computers just answer a question, which department, Flash, Audo or BBS?

Response to NG Department of Defense 2006-05-19 16:13:25


Gee, thanks for accepting me. Well, I'd probobly go under the portal department, so what exactly do we do in the departments. Sorry if I sound like a noob :(

Response to NG Department of Defense 2006-05-19 19:51:19


Cool! Then I would go for Portal, although I'm not real sure what exactly the question is. I have never listened to any of the audio files. Since I don't do flash myself, I've not had a need to go search for audio. As this is my third post to the BBS, I am a total noob here. I go to the Portal every day, however and watch as much as I have time for.

Response to NG Department of Defense 2006-05-20 02:40:07


Welcome to all the newcomers. If you didn't already know, we are currently re-organizing the club - most likely creating a new thread for a fresh start.

Here's what I have so far for the first post of the new thread, comments and thoughts on it would be appreciated. Things in italics are things that I would like the most to have input on.

The Newgrounds Department of Defense

Welcome to the NGDD! Our purpose is to band together to serve Newgrounds. We have had a long history of 380 pages and are one of the oldest

surviving clubs/crews on NG. We have decided to start and continue using this thread as our active thread to create

more interest in the NGDD and to clarify what our purpose and activities consist of in the first page.

Activities
The NGDD will have many competitions, b/p, Flash, audio, review, random quizzes, etc. When you participate in a

competition, you will earn a certain amount of points depending on your performance in the competition. These

points will be able to be redeemed for Newgrounds merchandise

or a promotion within the club. Other ways to earn points is to do various things for the NGDD, such as running a

competition.

Club Structure
There are four main departments: The Department of Flash, The Department of BBS, The Department of Audio, and the

Department of Internal Affairs. A member of the NGDD will be able to join any one of the departments. Each

department is headed by a leader (already selected from the previous thread) and after this post each leader will

post what their departments purposes are (and the expected duties of their members). There are no

requirements to join the NGDD, but you will be automatically dishonourably discharged and lose all lost if a post is

not made in two weeks without prior notice. Also, all new members will be ranked as Privates for fifteen days after

which, they will be promoted by their Department leader to what they deem fit.

For up-to-date news on activities, member lists, the point system, and much more, please visit our private forum(website?).

We hope you enjoy your stay at the Newgrounds Department of Defense!

The competitions sound like fun and also a good way to see more of NG. I am prime example of one who has been in NG for about a year and a half and am only now venturing much beyond the portal. Heck, it took me weeks to realize one could *vote* on entries and how to do that.
It would be lovely to see the department descriptions and expectations/duties for each before deciding which to join.
If I am not online everyday, it means I am either deathly ill or my computer has died. Given that I live in PA, it could also mean we are in the midst of another lengthy (read 'days-long') power failure. This happens quite a bit in the summer.

Hey guys! Could I join? I tried to join earlier, but was looked over. This place seems like a great club.

Ok just choose a department, BBS, Flash or Audio.

Anyway just a couple of questions, when do you want the department purpose done for? and also I had an idea. I understand the departments have to be freinds but how about some competition between the departments in these comps?

Everything else in that report sounded great.

You don't have to be online everyday. There aren't many commitments that you have to make to the NGDD other than making at least one post every two weeks.

I'm planning to open the new thread next weekend, pending no objections. So if the departments could have their stuff done by then, that would be great. I'll message the department leaders on Thursday to arrange what day and time to open the thread to make sure all the leaders get the first posts. And I'll post an updated member list on Thursday.

Should we still have the department of Internal Affairs? I don't know if there is enough "internal activities" for a seperate department.

I forget now, but who messaged that they were going to try to create a good forum layout?

Assuming that I'm still heading the Audio Dept., I'll have something ready.

Sorry I haven't been by more often - I'll start writing up a basic outline for the Audio Dept. and I'd like to bounce it off of you before it gets posted (for consistency).

New thread? I could have sworn that we were keeping this one. Weren't there a few objections to a new one? - Either way, doesn't really matter to me - once everything is posted (wherever) then I'll be making a recruitment push to get a few more users together in the Audio Dept.

Funny you should ask - we were just looking for someone with environmental
de-filthification skills.

Unless any objections are posted within the next 2 days, I see no reason why you cannot be accepted into the Audio Dept. as "Private" (as per the new guidelines)

The complete Audio Dept. guidelines will be posted soon but for now keep an eye on trends in the AP if you can - monitor hot topics in the AF over the next week and after 15 days (on June 6th) you will be eligible for a meritorious promotion and given a title.

Important -
After 15 days, only your eligibility will change, you will not automatically be granted a new title. You will need to specifically request advancement, this is so that only pro-active personnel are given additional roles and new titles.
