HS Codex Editor's Report (Nov 17)

HS Codex Editor’s Report
November 2017

Greetings from the Codex, and welcome to all our readers. Back in August, we announced that we would be releasing monthly “front page promotions.” Obviously, that didn’t happen. However, there is some very important news which we felt warranted another stab at a front page announcement.

Before we get to that, though, we want to highlight some of the past articles which you might have missed. They include: The Codex is completely fan-made. That means that we rely on fans of HeroScape for everything, from articles to comments. Recently, I’ve been wondering how we can both reward our faithful contributors and provide more incentive for people to write for us. After some discussion with our local proofreader/tech support/admin, Xotli, we have hit upon an idea.

As of now, membership in the Codex group here on Heroscapers will include certain on-site privileges. These privileges apply to everyone who has a Codex badge and has access to the HS Codex private forum. They include:
  • extended PM space, allowing you to store up to 8k PMs, and
  • the ability to upload files to Heroscapers.com.
We felt that these privileges were significant, while still not infringing on the privileges of site supporters or contributors.

With these new privileges come two new changes in the way we run things:
  • We will now be stricter about who stays in the Codex group. Up until now, we’ve allowed basically everyone to stay on when they leave. From this point on, the only members of the Codex group will be active contributors and staff, and our honored retirees.
  • We will now use more extensive measures to make sure all new contributors are a good fit for their department. This doesn’t mean we’re going to start turning down a bunch of people; it just means we need to make absolutely sure you have the interest and ability to contribute before you join the team.
This change represents a large shift in the way the Codex is set up, so please be sure to comment and let us know what you think about it. You can also send a private message to The Grim Reaper’s Friend.

Remember that joining the Codex is simple and easy. Just go to our Facebook
and click the “sign up” button directly beneath our cover photo. You’ll be directed to a form with a few questions to answer. Complete the form and we’ll get back to you soon.

See you in the Codex!

There will be a slight pause in posting articles for approximately one week, while Xotli deals with a family medical issue. I'm praying for you and your family, Xotli.
