I’ve been obsessed with the “I saw The TV Glow” soundtrack: https://music.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_luOtidpLfUDP2a4DALUPUjTecQcIFRZsQ&si=QIeva4CCiAzSU6X3

Reminds me of The Witness (Destiny 2's "Thanos" / big bad). Sorry for being weird and relating to a video game haha. I don't necessarily disagree with your take, either.

Here a little topic I saved for a rainy day. 

https://sep7agon.net/the-flood/we-should-design-a-sep7agon-card-game/660/  I might include my card as PFP
I mean like...

A big reason I'm building v3 from the ground up is so I have the freedom to do all these cool things that SMF would make difficult. Some of the plans I have are (eventually) built in game mechanics into threads (dice roll, coin flip, etc.) for RPG / DnD type shit.

I could see cards that are tradable being a thing. I want the community to use what I make, so the more stuff that people want to use and interact with the better.

So were having coups too right?
Yes.

It will NOT be implemented right at the start, because I'm prioritizing basic features first. Coup will be part of a quest to get the item that enables it for you. You can use that item to control:

- Role (badge next to your name)
- Rank / prefix (appears under your name)
- Accent color (color of your nameplate)
- Accent color glow (true / false) (surrounds entire post in your color)
- Nameplate (uploaded file)
- Post text color

Coup will not let you execute your own CSS. It's more like inserting overriding values if that makes sense (it's safer). The item will have a switch that will turn the feature on and off for you. When off, you won't see anyone's Coup settings or your own, but users who have theirs on will still see your values (if that makes sense).

Obviously there will be rules about not impersonating staff, etc.

Can we suggest trophies / achievements for v3?
Yes. Please do. Nameplates will be a thing and I'm also introducing an inventory, which will house all your items (which can be both sentimental / rare shit as well as functional, like an inventory item to create user invitations).

We will eventually have quests too (similar to achievements).
How far do we have to get in Destiny 2 to post in the new forum btw?
You have to have at least one raid title to post in Septagon 3.0. We'll be checking your stats and kicking anybody who doesn't KWTD.

Can't wait to see the new site Cheat. 

Here hopping of  spark in activity.  Our discord sever was quiet.
Saaaaame.

For those interested. I frequently post updates to the discord #development channel, as it's easier than dealing with uploading the screen recording to Imgur first. Everyone is welcome to join.

  So is it possible to advertise on Bnet?       I don't have Destiny 2 so that make me a dirty Halo peasant.
Unfortunately I'm hopelessly addicted to Destiny 2, so I can post there, yes. I may make a thread or something once the site has all the basic functions working.

I have Auth 100% sorted, barring any bugs, and page editing is working (and markdown rendering is sorted) but still need to start on threads and posts.

Sent a small amount. No need to repay me. Please pay it forward by being excellent to yourself and your family.
You have saved me from the ravages of debt, and I am forever thankful for that. Truly the kind and gracious overlord Sep7 needs. I will pay you back regardless at some point though because being in someone's debt just feels wrong to me.
Not needed. You're not in my debt; it's basically nobody's fault that for some reason society requires people to have money to exist. Just be excellent :)

Does Sept really have that much opp?
Opp?

opposition

at least, thats what it means according to my gen-z tongue
Oooh. I mean yes and no. You don't see it, but we do get lots of spam bots in here. This will cut down on that a lot. It's also a way to self-moderate I'd like to try. Way easier to make sure people are friendly if you can incentivize good behavior with invitation rewards and punish bad actors with revoking invitation creation / demotion.

Invitations won't be rare. I plan to have everyone's inventory auto-refresh weekly up to like a cap of 3-5. If it ends up sucking / not working I can walk it back.

« on: May 05, 2024, 09:53:34 AM »
Hey y'all. While the new site is NOWHERE near ready to show off, it's reaching a point where I have a majority of the user account stuff actually working (both front and back). Because of this, I do anticipate getting to the invitation system in the next few weeks.

The invite system is new and is essentially a guard against bots / bad actors by requiring an existing user to vouch for a new user via an invitation (tied to email). Everyone here will be invited and will be given a unique "Original" role that nobody else that registers on the new site once it launches will get. Y'all are gonna be special.

But the invitations work via a whitelist / allowlist of emails, and those emails will be pulled from THIS database. You'll need to register again, but you can only do so if your email matches one on the list.



Not on the list? Get bent.

So if you have any interest at all in joining v3, make sure your email is correct and current. Like... do that this week if you can.

theres my idea to get traffic here. cheat, make it happen
Wait do you expect me to be your streamer personality? I'm many things, but I am not great at entertaining lol.

If someone else wants to stream and advertise I'd be fine with it. Maybe just wait for v3? I make progress every week and within 3-4 months it should be more or less ready.

Septagon / Re: What I'm Working On
« on: April 27, 2024, 05:13:35 PM »
Quick update: took a couple week break from working on the site to stand up my personal website to try to get more side-gigs. It had the added benefit of making me slightly better at Angular so there's that.

Authentication system is entirely setup now (front and back) with the exception of password recovery, password changing, and email changing.

I guess I never announced this, but registration requires an invitation. The idea is that users can invite other users (which is the only way you can create an account). Users who are new (30 days or less) who get moderated will have an upward effect to the user who invited them. They will likely rank down and will have all their invites removed and will not be able to create a new invitation for x days (thinking probably a 2 week ban on this).

On the flipside, the carrot is that there will be quests / rare items like nameplates and special ranks / roles dedicated to getting x number of new users registered and in good standing for 30 days. Ex: I'm thinking of making a role like "Paragon" or something that, among other things, requires recruiting 5 people (and anyone who gets moderated within 30 days subtracts from that total).

Basically: recruitment will be baked into the entire system and incentivized.

The Flood / Re: New Fallout show is really good
« on: April 23, 2024, 08:19:18 AM »
I loved the crazy mixed vibe of the show. It felt very light, like it could be playing on Disney or something and then a character gets their leg or arm or something blown off on camera.

I'll definitely be trying the games.

« on: April 18, 2024, 03:51:54 PM »
aw, we're getting rid of the number?

.net because its short and that's what it was all these years.
Yes. I plan to run the two concurrently during the transition period and then once this place closes, sep7agon.net will redirect to wherever the new site lives.

« on: April 18, 2024, 08:03:37 AM »
What should be the site's TLD for v3? I already have these purchased and they will all redirect to the canonical, but wanted to get some input:

septagon.net
septagon.forum
septagon.app

It'll be there as a trophy / inventory item for original members. The memes must live on.

  Hold up your making a V3?


Starting recruiting the Destiny crowed.
I am making a new site / app, yes. I needed a new hobby other than sitting in front of my TV playing Destiny 2 all the time.

Septagon / Re: What I'm Working On
« on: April 07, 2024, 09:00:26 PM »
but rather than try to wait for everything to be ready, my new plan is to get the basics (auth, bare-bones user stuff like pw / email resets, thread creation, replies, post editing, etc.) and then add in the missing pieces as I go. This will mean the 3.0 site will launch without stuff like PMs, Coup, administrator tools, private groups, etc. BUT it will also mean users can be hands-on ASAP.
I am surprised nobody done a joke about a "Print" button being an essential feature that should be added ASAP yet.
No cap: I planned to have that be the inventory item all the old school users get that unlocks the “Original” role if they register.

will it have twitch emotes?
i plan to have it be an ongoing project so eventually who knows. It’s gonna have built in inventory / quests like out of an RPG.

For example: unlocking the reality stone will let you use coup / custom post design, which you will earn from a quest. Not sure about the details as I’m working on getting auth and profile management solid before I start on the community features.

Once the app works as a basic forum I plan to launch it.

Halo is dead at this point.
I legit started Halo Infinite and just never finished it. It was just ... not interesting to me anymore and that is so sad, because Halo was a big part of my teen years growing up.

Too lazy to color in.

I've been to Canada and Thailand besides the USA (obviously lol). Also I've gone to the Florida Keys / parts of the Bahamas as a kid during a cruise. I had a layover in Japan, but never exited the airport.

For the states: I've been to Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Arkansas, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Pensilvania, Washington DC, California, and Washington State. There might be a few others as I've gone on two road trips to NYC / Florida, but I was just passing through them via car or bus.
