I want to make a post to discuss the user roles on the new website. The original goal was to give everyone a key to the kingdom. Make you authors, editors, and keymasters of Gozer. Normally that might make the website susceptible to vandals, but that presumes people actually care enough to bother. The mod is a known entity, but it isn’t famous.
The problem wasn’t vandals, but spambots. Hundreds of hundreds of spambots. They go by names like Alfredo Bowers and Vaun Diamond and Zoila5110sxido, names that couldn’t possibly be real (We need more Zoila5110sxido license plates in the Gift Shop. Repeat, we are sold out of Zoila5110sxido license plates). Worse yet, they make posts on the front page about maggots and bees. Their will is unbreakable because they have no will to break.
Vandals get tired. A spambot never sleeps.
I am still sticking to the plan, of course. You will all be given powers, I just need to confirm your status as a human. While I realize this disqualifies Anduniel, who is clearly some sort of evolved superhuman machine, the rest of you well-mannered waterbags shall be awarded authorships and the like. Just make a post somewhere on the website while logged in as a subscriber, or ask for a key directly by sending me an email.
This will allow you to make posts to the front page, and edits to the wiki. Author powers will also allow you to make additions to the collaborative script page in the casting call section. Want to write a quest where Zora gets her scars healed? Where you can marry Two-Tails? Make Olivia a follower? Have party banter with your new followers Olivia and Dai-Dar’rakki? Anything you want, you can write.
Consider it a fanfiction playground, save one stark difference. I’ll be notifying the actors and if they are willing, they may lend a voice to your fiction. Myself or another modder may make a patch to turn it into a reality. I might even include some of the lines into the base mod. Basically, this is a way to satisfy every request and desire without altering the canon version.
