  1. Although this is a fairly new user I think he would be a great candidate for a 1 bar. Has been in communication with me over DM and I've been showing him the ropes. +1! Try to stay active, friendly and helpful within the discord and 07 altar CC and I think you will go far here!
  2. - Altar FC & 07 Altar CC Rules - 1. Do not call names for open hosts in the chat who are not in the chat themselves. The exception to this rule is if no other hosts are open in the chat (rule is currently under review as a result of the popularity of the house host tracker). 2. When hosting please remain in the chat at all times to ensure you are advertised properly and to avoid confusion. 3. Only call out a host name in the chat when someone is asking for a house. Assuming it is not spammed, the exceptions to this rule are: If they are the only host in the chat. If all host names are being called out to provide a non-competitive environment. 4. No begging or asking for donations in the chat. If you are a host, please avoid all donation discussion while your house is open. 5. Limit advertising bone running, lighters, & advertisement services to once every 3 minutes in the chat unless a specific service is requested from another player. 6. There is no "Best Host". All hosts in the eyes of the FC/CC are equals. 7. Please discuss any disputes in private message with a rank. 8. Altar FC/07 Altar CC ranks are NOT obligated to investigate ANY trust trading, item scamming, bone running or advertising dispute. Ranks may request screenshots and investigate under their own discretion. 9. Altar FC/07 Altar CC ranks strive to moderate fairly at all times in the community with the information they have (sometimes limited). At the end of the day, we are all human beings and our intention is to kick as a last resort. Being kicked from the chat is usually due to breaking one or more of the CC/FC rules and is pretty self explanatory, but mistakes happen. If you feel that a kick is not justified, please contact a high rank or mod/admin via Discord PM.
  3. Really good I'll make sure to add some in the next revision of the advert that's created
  4. I like a lot of these I'll make sure to add them to the list!
  5. We collectively have 150+ ranks!!! Wow!
  6. This in theory would be much better for determining the consistency of a player on the tracker and would be more effective in the long run. The only issue would be finding an effective way to determine those stat averages which we don't have the functionality for yet. Maybe in the future
  7. off to a great start LOL i'm going to start adding a bunch now so maybe it'll give others some ideas
  8. Hello all, Thought it would be fun if we all collaborated on cool things the adverts could say when advertising. Since we have the functionality of setting how often a particular line shows up we can also create advert lines that will only show up once in a blue moon or very frequently. Please post all of your awesome advert line ideas below! They can be serious, informative, funny, quirky but let's keep them appropriate for something an advertiser would say to grab peoples attention. I will compile them all into a list in this post GOGOGO! List: Informational: Need a G Altar? Join [ Altar ] Friends Chat! / Need a G Altar? Join [ 07 Altar ] Clan Chat!

  9. Hello guys! I just wanted to make a quick announcement that our ranking changes are almost complete and ready to be rolled out into our live environment. We're currently going through all of the ranks with the altar management team and are getting close to completion. One huge thing to keep in mind; After these ranking changes are complete if there are any questions/concerns that you have about the placement of your rank or it's status PLEASE REACH OUT TO EITHER MYSELF/MAGIQ/WARRIOR/TIFY/SCUBA STEEV/JALAMANTA/SUBLIME. We would like this transition to be as smooth as possible. There will inevitably be an uncomfortable period as we all get used to the new system and there will absolutely be issues to fix. So please don't be alarmed if something is set in the way you are not expecting. I'll keep everyone posted with more updates EDIT: I will be removing all current and outstanding applications.
  10. Right off the bat we're getting input that the activity scores should be higher, thanks guys
  11. Hello there everybody! It's time (once again) for another one of those "Yikes! Look at all the time we spent being unproductive this year!" posts. We have made a significant amount of changes this year and will be continuing to do so throughout 2019 and beyond! But not to infinity, that's too long. Of course the most significant implementation that's been made this year is the house host tracker. With mixed emotions/opinions the house host tracker is live and operational. The data is being actively pushed to our website/forums from the discord as well as integrated into advert scripts thanks to @Lusfr_ and @Im Dakota. Thanks yall! And of course, thanks to all of YOU for being so consistent with keeping it up to date. I am aware of others concerns with the tracker and am trying to address them to the best of my ability. But for now I believe that it's important to understand that this tracker is essentially in the Alpha stages. It's not even fully designed yet. With that being said please bare with me as we try to change our ranking structure and rules for ranks to maintain the tracker in the most fair and effective manner. But until all of these changes come, let's reflect on our 2018 accomplishments: - 20k+ views on the OSRS prayer training guide made by @Warrior. This is amazing! - We effectively doubled our discord users since the tracker went live. Holy moly! I guess this tracker thing does work! - Magiq somehow cleared olm as a level 79... All by himself. - With the assistance of good guy @Magiq we were able to assist in getting the gilded altar burner plugin implemented into RuneLite! Now that is truly magiqal! - I got into Elite Smash on the new super smash bros game! Oh wait... I should probably be playing RuneScape shouldn't I? - Our website now has fully integrated SEO and pretty damn good page ranking for prayer-related searches. This really helps tie our whole ecosystem together for hassle-free and hands-off recruitment/playerflow. - We have adverts at the portal that fetch our host data! This has been a huge positive change for us until Jagex can get rid of all the spam (Don't get your hopes up). Thanks especially to @Lusfr_, @Im Dakota, @King Capone and recently @Tify for running these adverts in RS3 and OSRS respectively. - New application and donation system on the forums are so awesome I feel like cutting a mountain in half. Ribbit "I am not yet satisfied, what do we have planned for 2019?" Good question non-existent person! (let's just call him my "Altar" ego "goteeeeem") and here is what we've got planned so far for 2019: - We will be moving from Discord back to Ventrilo. In my opinion Discord is just way too free and easy to use. Gotta keep things challenging for ourselves. (EDIT: This was a joke for those who thought I was being serious heheh) - The Host Tracker will at some point be considered "Beta". This will be the point where all features and implementations are complete and we can consider this a tool to heavily rely on. - Ranking structure is going to be completely redone in order to simplify users roles in the community and to better convey their significance and responsibility in the community. This will be quite a large change for all of us. We will be reaching out for input in the near future! Our rank up process is awesome but the roles themselves as well as our process for removing inactive ranks needs to be overhauled in order to mesh better with our current environment. - Server migration; our server is becoming "end of life" and we are going to need to move our entire infrastructure to a new server. This will be an incredibly painful process and there will be some type of downtime. We will hopefully figure out a way to keep the tracker running while that occurs. Thanks to everyone in the community that plays a part in MAGA (Make Altar Great Again, name checks out). This community wouldn't exist without you and damn I'm gonna make myself cry again. We are the best gaming community in the universe. Don't let anybody tell you different. If it wasn't for us RuneScape would be DEAD. That's factual. Let's make the best of 2019 and see what it has in-store for us

    Hello rs3 :)

    +1 good work so far
  13. Would be an awesome idea if someone could program it ?
  14. Hey guys, just posting a quick community update to talk about some of the changes in our community as well as in runescape as a whole. There are two main things that I was to talk about: 1. OSRS Mobile and fostering a high quality community 2. House host tracker But first I just want to mention that I am super proud with everyone in the community and the things we have accomplished in the past 6 months, and I personally think we can turn this amazing community into something 100x better OSRS Mobile and fostering a high quality community: With the release of OSRS mobile it's important that we understand the impact that this has on our community. Mobile is going to bring in a significant amount of users, a lot of which will play OSRS for many years to come. It's necessary to capitalize on this while we have the opportunity. We have two primary social platforms where we potentially recruit and engage with new members-players (07 Altar and Discord). The traffic that we receive to these two platforms is perfect and a result of all of the hard work and dedication we have all given to this community. Now we need to understand what we have and not let it go to waste. New players are the lifeblood of our community and from my perspective and many others we are not capitalizing on this. This is mainly due to one important factor in our culture; we aren't doing a good job of making new players feel welcome. Go ahead and ask a lot of even our own entry-level ranks; I've been told that it was difficult for them to start earning their rank and even more difficult to make new friends. "Altar it's easy to make friends you just need to be outgoing and charismatic, and put yourself out there". While I agree with this we have to realize what game we're playing here and the type of people that play it as well. Many of us aren't outgoing or charismatic, and many of us (including myself) have issues in social situations. For far too long members have had to do most (or all) of the initiation and/or work to try to integrate themselves into the community. It's about time that we try our best to be more welcoming and helpful to players. If a player is clearly new, throw them a PM. Get them excited about the game and show them that they have a support system if they hang around with us. If you see someone new join Discord, respond in the general channel and ask them how they're doing. Make some small talk, introduce yourself and some of your friends or other ranks and BE HUMAN. I'm personally getting a bit bored with all the memelords and edgelords in the community ALL THE TIME. It's all just so fake and disingenuous, save some it for reddit please. With the release of OSRS mobile this is the opportunity to make our community even greater then it already is. LETS DOOOO IT! TLDR: Let's start being more welcoming to all the new players joining our community 2. The House Host Tracker: The release of our house host tracker in my opinion has been very successful. It has increased the traffic to our website by almost 10x and is the perfect way to keep an active list of all the open hosts in the community as well as to log potential data and give others the ability to use our data. The current best example of this would be Lusfr's script to call out the open hosts in the cc. We also recently updated the tracker to a new revision which has some quality of life changes as well as the notification system that I'm sure most of you have seen already. This notification system has GREATLY improved the consistency of the tracker and it will only get better from here. For those ranks who haven't yet used the tracker please keep in mind that it is mandatory as a rank to keep this up to date. Failure to do this over a long enough period of time could have negative consequences for you and your rank. Please don't feel the need to have to update the tracker every single day or else you are going to lose your rank, that's not how we want to operate. We just want to make sure that everyone is doing their part in the community. Keep it up guys. We couldn't do it without you!
  15. Really well done man. You should write up a quick guide/explanation on how to use it for the plebs out there
