Community Issues

Community Management Twool

I've talked for a while now on Fandom Today, about our dreams to build a community site for you all to talk to each other in the same way you talk to us via email, Twitter, and FaceBook.  For a long time we used Ning, but there new pricing model makes that impossible... (sigh)

For the last month we have been playing with BuddyPress with mixed results.  While it add most of the function you all have asked for, it does not allow us to set up a dedicated video upload section, and the Profile and Group Avatars are broken.  Over the last several days, BuddyPress has started causing random crashes on the site, so I disabled it until the next update.

We are thinking of adding VideoPress to the site for our vidders to continue adding videos to the site.

You all are what makes dashPunk worth the time, effort, and cost, so we want to make you as happy as we possibly can.

I am sorry for any inconvenience our recent issues have caused.  Let me know what features (or services) you would like us to have, and we will do our best to bring them to you as quickly as we can.

Eric, Master of Heka

master_of_heka Evelyn @ Steampunk Fashion posted her self portrait from the HeroMachine at UGO.com and I felt inspired to make one of my own. It was really fun imagining myself as a superhero and trying to design a character to match. Recently, I have developed a soft spot in my heart for Kitsune, or Spirit Foxes, so I envisioned my superhero self as a half-demon with a companion fox to help me find my way in the world...

I wonder if it would be possible to create a character like this in City of Heroes... I need to look into that. Maybe this should be the hero of that web comic strip I have been thinking about doing.

Beware the legend of the Steampunk, half-demon, spirit fox, with the magic ring, master of heka, lord of the night, king of sneakiness...

Maybe that is a bit overdone. I suppose I need to think this through a little more.
