World of Warcraft / Welcome to the World of Warcraft board!
« on: July 11, 2017, 07:38:49 AM »
Hello Guest,

Welcome to the World of Warcraft board!

Back in 2010, Severity Gaming was formed just after @Delacour had quit playing World of Warcraft (#WotLKProblems). But shortly after SG got their (original) League of Legends community off the ground, WoW was a quick second. We started the first iteration of SG-WoW on US-Kel'Thuzad (Alliance) in November 2010 (Cataclysm) and ran it up until September 2016 (Legion). During this run we did both great and terribly, but were learned so much. After almost one year of break, there's some rattling going on in the community wanting to bring the family back together. So without further ado, it's with great pleasure that SG announces the return of World of Warcraft it's portfolio. We're back and at it again, and hopefully with a vengeance!

The purpose of this board is to serve as a home for our World of Warcraft community to collaborate and organize. As with all other boards on Severity Gaming, The Rules apply... Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!

Ooh... One last thing! If you capture any great moments while playing WoW, you can upload them to the World of Warcraft Gallery here.

Hey Guys,

My name is Chris "Delacour" Schek, and I'm the current moderator of our PlayStation 4 boards. I graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a BS in Applied Networking and Systems Administration. I started Severity Gaming during the summer of my Sophomore year and have been driving it ever since. My favorite game at the moment is Overwatch for PC, but I am also a long time World of Warcraft addict, and avid League of Legends support player. Feel free to hit up my forum profile for my handles. If you have any questions I'm almost always available on our Discord server.

Thanks for dropping in!

Wadup,

90% of my free time is balanced between ark, ff14, and overwatch. Ark has become one of my favorite games since early access started, with over 1600 hours played, and I am super inspired for this SG ark server. I want to build stuff for people to raid and boss events to fight with worthwhile rewards as well as encourage pvp-related events, although the server will primarily remain pve. Later with more dedicated hardware we might have a cluster with the other maps, one of them for pvp. I'm open to ideas for cool events to do, so if you got any leme know. Also open to mod suggestions, but know that my values on mods follows 4 key points: immersion, balance, engram clutter, and removing the usefulness of existing engrams.

If you pillar spam I will kill you.
Love, Meril ;*

Any events that get added to our official Community Calendar will also have a thread created here with further details. If you see something you like, dig deeper and learn how you can get involved! We also run an "Event Registration" plugin that improves overall organization, and also gives us the ability to host paid events. If you're interested in knowing the second something gets scheduled, our Community Calendar is synchronized with a publicly subscribable Google Calendar. You can access it here.

Users are also more than welcome to post events of their own to this board.

As with every section on our community site, The Rules apply.

Hello Guest,

Welcome to the Xbox One boards!

What we plan on doing at a "gaming platform" level it isn't quite clear yet, so we don't have much of an introduction thought out for this thread. We'll update it soon! What we do know is that The Rules apply, so please don't do anything that makes both your and our lives harder. ;)

General / Please Read - New Member Orientation
« on: February 27, 2017, 09:50:30 PM »
Hello Guest!

Thanks for registering, we're glad you decided to Severity Gaming (SG). The following documentation is intended to guide you through some of our recommended post-registration steps. This includes things like finishing up your user profile, linking your social media accounts, changing notification settings, applying for a "contributor" account, and much more!

Use your social media accounts to log in
Our website has integrations in place that will allow you to link your SG Account to some of the well known OAuth2 providers (Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Twitter, etc.). After linking your account you'll be able to use the associated "Login with <provider>" button on our Login page as an easy way to log into your SG account. One less password to type in!

The first time you log in with an OAuth2 provider, you'll first be securely redirected to that providers website, they'll then prompt you for your credentials if you're not already logged in and/or validate that you are who you say you are, once validated you'll get redirected back to our website and automatically logged into your SG account here. In the future we plan on supporting other providers such as GitHub, Discord, and Twitch. Stay tuned!

If you already have an active SG account...
  • Log In using your SG account credentials.
  • Visit the "Social Network Accounts" section of your user profile.
  • Click the "Login via <provider>" link button for your desired provider. You will then be redirected to the providers website and asked you to log in if you aren't already. Do so.
  • After logging in, you'll be asked if you want to "connect" or "link" your account to your Severity Gaming account. The provider will also provide you with details around what information will be shared with us when you "connect" your account. Please do so.
  • After confirming, you'll then be redirected back to our website here, and you should see that you're account is now linked. Note: There's no limit to how many providers you link, feel free to add them all!

If you don't have an active SG account...
  • Visit our Login page.
  • Click the "Login via <provider>" link button for your desired provider. You will then be redirected to that providers website and asked to log in if you aren't already. Do so.
  • After logging in, you'll be asked if you want to "connect" or "link" your account to Severity Gaming. The provider will also provide you with details around what information will be shared with us when you "connect" your account. Please review and do so.
  • After confirming, you'll then be redirected back to our website here, and provided with further registration steps (setting an emergency password, adding profile details, etc.). Continue with these steps, and you'll be all set. Note: There's no limit to how many providers you link, feel free to follow the steps above to link additional accounts.

Finish Updating Your Profile
When registering on our website we ask you for some information up front; If anyone referred you, Twitch Username, Discord ID, etc. We didn't want to over do it and turn registration into a 30 minute process :) so we left a lot out. :( When you get some free time we recommend that you go through your Profile settings. Details below.

Account Settings
  • Change your email address, and contact settings.
  • Change your pasword.
  • Set a security question for password resets.
Forum Profile
  • Change your avatar/profile picture.
  • Set a personal message to be displayed on your profile.
  • Set your birthdate. You'll get an epic email from us once a year!
  • Set location details. Maybe for meet-ups in the future.
  • Set your gender.
  • Add a Signature.
  • Add a link to your website.
  • Add your Social Media accounts to your profile. Sorry, this is seperate form the OAuth stuff right now. :(
Look and Layout
  • Set your Time Offset. Our Website is hosted out of Chicago, so all of the times are based on CST unless you set an offset.
  • Set various forum forum layout and functionality settings.
Personal Messaging: Configure settings related to personal personal messaging.
Buddies/Ignore List: Edit your buddy/ignore lists.
Social Network Accounts: Link your Social Media accounts with your SG account so you can log in with them instead.

Update Your Notification Settings
Periodically we will send out notifications and news letters to our registered users. These are intended to keep you guys informed as to what's going on around the community, or ensure you about any upcoming events. Additionally, our "Division Leaders" had the ability to announce posts to member groups (ex. WoW Members, Donors, etc.) If you want to make any adjustments to your notification settings, you can do that here: Notification Settings.

Update Your Security Settings
TO DO: Include details about setting security questions and how we've implemented "IP Whiteliteing" for those that are super paranoid.https://www.severitygaming.com/profile/?area=account

Google Calendar
The Severity Gaming Calendar syncs to Google Calendar automagically, you can import it and follow along here:
TO DO: Include more details about why the hell people would want to add and follow -_-

Media Gallery
TO DO: Include more on our media gallery, outline the file types that can be uploaded, and give them a link and some instructions on how to use. https://www.severitygaming.com/media/
