Steps on Creating a High Quality Suggestion Thread

24 May 2019 - 08:11 PM

The suggestions section here on the forum receives a sizable voluminous handful of incipient conceptions every week, some good and some not so good. Alora's staff team genuinely values suggestions and aim to locate as many great conceptions as possible to pass on to Omicron.

 

To help with this aim, I thought it would be genuinely subsidiary to provide everyone with steps on the how to get the most out of your suggestions, and the best way to present them to the staff team. 

 

 

image.png

 

Step 1 - Before Creating Your Suggestion Thread

 

Make sure that there aren't any already existing threads of your suggestion:

First of all, endeavour to probe if there isn't a homogeneous thread to your suggestion you optate to engender. If no one else has posted a similar conception recently, feel in liberty to engender an incipient suggestion thread. Please be as detailed as possible! This gives the suggestion a higher chance to get incorporated into the game/on to the forum.

 

If the suggestion already exists, give feedback on the already existing suggestion:

First of all, endeavour to probe if there isn't a similar thread to the suggestion you optate to engender. If there is a suggestion thread akin to your suggestion, please give feedback on that suggestion in lieu of making an incipient suggestion.

When commenting on a suggestion, please be detailed as possible, give feedback and let them ken what's good about it and what not.​

 

Avoid posting on threads older than a fortnight, and if your version of the suggestion is consummately different than an already subsisting one, make an incipient suggestion and verbally express how your version is different to others.

 

 

Step 2 - Coming up With an Idea

 

Think of a need, fill that need:

Try and cerebrate of something missing from the game. You should then visually examine cerebrating up a logical solution to fill that gap in the game. It's withal a good conception to cogitate whether it's genuinely worth integrating.

 

Think about what impact such a suggestion could have:

This is probably the most important point when it comes to making an idea.

Balance is a major issue for ascertaining a good suggestion. A conception might sound good because it makes something more facile, but if that has a major negative impact on other areas of the game, such as the economy or inspiritment of rule breaking, then Omicron won't be able to introduce it.

Ask yourself whether your suggestion justifies any major impact to the game. If it would only make things a diminutive bit more facile, but could cause balancing issues then you may need to go back to the drawing board.

 

Don't focus on the end goal:

When putting forward a suggestion, make sure you are cerebrating of how the suggestion could benefit all players, not just those at the terminus goal (unless of course it's high level content).

 

 

Step 3 - Presenting Your Idea on The Forum

 

Creating a title:

Before you begin to write up your suggestion, you will be required to enter in a title.

Make a title that describes as briefly as possible the main conception abaft your suggestion. The community and staff team need to grasp the main conception of your suggestion by reading the title, this is probably the most paramount part of the suggestion.

 

Structure your suggestion:

A structured suggestion is facile on the ocular perceivers and can get a lot more information across, structuring your suggestion is highly recommended.

A clear and facile to read suggestion is a prosperous suggestion.

 

Make yourself presentable:

Utilize clear language when making your suggestion and evade falling into the pitfalls of being exorbitantly negative about why you cerebrate certain things don't work or are left out. Recollect that you have all the time in the world to engender your thread, so there is no desideratum to rush it.

 

Hook your reader:

When you make a suggestion, or any thread authentically, you require to ascertain you prehend your reader expeditiously. Having pages of text to find what you are proposing may put people off. The staff team receive a substantial amount of suggestions every week, so it authentically avails them if they can visually perceive what we are suggesting expeditiously.

 

Getting back to structuring your suggestion:

  • Make titles and paragraphs, divide your suggestion into different sections
  • Don't hesitate to use colours, don't overuse the colours or other formatting though
  • Use spoilers when you want to go into specific details about one item, so it doesn't take up the whole thread, people also have the choice to read those specifics if they chose to
  • Use indentations, giving people the choice to go into details or not is important, put the most important information closer to the left and the specifics closer to the right
  • Use spaces, when you move from one point to the other add a line break between them as people would skip the whole paragraph if they get bored of the first two lines

Try and anticipate questions that the rest of the community, as well as the staff team will be asking about your suggestion and answer them afore hand, this could include:

  • What is it?
  • What does it do?
  • Why is it needed?
  • What problems does it solve?
  • Why is that feature like that and not like this?

Adding Additional Information:

This could include:

  • Problems that may arise from your suggestion
  • Possible extra features that could be added to the suggestion
  • A list of your sources, if you were inspired by other suggestions

Adding Tags:

Tags allow members and staff team to probe and find your thread when probing for suggestions cognate to a certain topic, they increment the threads overtness during these searches.


Possible Fixes for CAPTCHA Errors When Voting

24 May 2019 - 08:04 PM

image.png


Hello everyone,

It's come to my attention that a good amount of players in the community are facing trouble with voting lately. This is due to issues with CAPTCHAs. CAPTCHAs play an important role in keeping the internet spam-free and making everyone’s experience a little bit better. We have to go through them while voting on RuneScape Private Server toplists in order to receive our beloved bonus experience. Unfortunately, even real human-beings don't pass them at times. Sometimes people would face issues with CAPTCHAs for weeks, however, there are possibilities to solve your troubles with CAPTCHAs.

Down below you will find a small list of possible methods in order to solve your troubles with CAPTCHAs when voting.




1. Reset your IP

*NOTE that changing your IP in order to vote multiple times is strictly against Alora's rules and will result in a ban and wipe.*
Spoiler


Go to your Command Prompt, and then enter the following commands to reset the network adapter and IP address:

netsh winsock
reset netsh int ip reset
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew


2. Try a different browser / Clear your browser cache


3. Turn off your VPN and/or proxy. Better yet, uninstall them from your PC


4. Setup a Google Mail account

Having your own Google Mail account and being signed in will make it easy for Google/CAPTCHAs to understand you are a human-being!


5. Check malwares & browser extensions

Your computer may be infected with malware, or you may have browser etensions and plugins which are causing troubles with the CAPTCHAs. Secure Yourself today.

Experience Boosts Guide

24 May 2019 - 08:01 PM

Alora offers a handful of methods of amplifying your gained experience. The boosts stack with each other. This means that if you have 15%, 30% and 30% boosts activated, your gained experience will be multiplied by 75% of the initial experience gained. As an example, with 70% experience boosts, an experience drop that would without boosts grant you 1,000 experience, now grants 1,700 experience.

 

 

Passive Boosts

 

Passive boosts are experience amplifiers, that grant you bonus experience on whichever skill (unless specified) you're training at any given moment whilst the boost is active.

 

image.png Vote Book - Obtained through voting redeeming the vote book grants you a personal 50% experience boost for an hour, if you have Two Factor Authentication activated on the specific account. Vote books can only be used once every 12 hours on the following game modes: Hardcore Iron Man, Elite Iron Man, and Group Iron Man. Vote books buy/sell for 3M-4M. Does not apply to combat, including Prayer.

 

image.png Well of Goodwill - The well of goodwill is an object in the game that, when filled (100M), grants a global experience boost of 30% to everyone online for 90 minutes. The following game modes only receive half the the bonus experience (15%) - Elite Iron Man and Group Iron Man. 

 

image.png Skill of The Day - Changing every day, the skill of the day grants an experience boost of 25% globally in a specified skill. The order by which the skills change, can be found Here.

 

image.png Bonus XP Weekends - The event managers are constantly providing the community events to provide them with desired boosts/activities. The amount of experience boost granted is always specified beforehand. The experience amplifiers is often x1.5.

 

image.png Wilderness Bonus Experience - Players will be granted 1.5x experience for training skills above level 25 Wilderness. You must be in the Wilderness, above level 25, for two minutes for this to activate. Does not apply to combat, including Prayer.

 

image.png God Event - God Event, located at ::Event, occurs every 2-3 hours. Attacking any of the three Gods until you have done at least 100 damage will grant you with the blessings of the Gods, granting you 20% bonus experience for 30 minutes. Does not apply to combat, including Prayer.

 

 

Item Boosts

 

There are several items that grant you the ability to gain bonus experience in a skill specific to the item. These items are widely used by everyone going for large amounts of experience, or just level 99 in general.

 

image.png Goldsmith Gaunlets - These are obtainable through the Loyalty Store for 50,000 loyalty points. Wearing the goldsmith gaunlets increases the experience gained from smelting gold ore into a gold bar (x2.5 times as much). This applies to normal smelting, superheat spell, and Blast Furnace. 

 

image.png Karamja Gloves 4 - These are obtainable through the Achievements Store for 120 achievements points. Wearing the Karamja gloves grants 15% extra experience in the Agility skill.

 

image.png Ardougne Cloak 4 - This is obtainable through the Achievements Store for 200 achievements points. Wearing the Ardougne cloak 4 grants 15% extra experience in the Thieving skill.
