The Great Trinity Debates (#1) begins today!

Submitted By:Maglarken
Date: Monday, July 8, 2002

Yes, we at Trinity Republic are embarking on a series of debates in our Private General Topics Forum today that is usre to help us shape our policies and positions on certain MMORPG issues.

The first Debate topic that was kicked off this week is "Grouping Issues". Maglarken :) told his woeful story of an ill-fated trip in Everquest that spraked this debate. The story depicts his joining the "Group from Hell" in EQ that ultimately lead to his character being killed numerous times due to the poor leadership and skills of the inexperienced "Group Leader".

This debate discusses such topics as:

1. What will Trinity do to help newbies?
2. What will Trinity do to avoid Leadership power trips?
3. what will Trinity do to implement a rating system for our members? and should we even have a rating system in place?

All this and more can be found in our NEW FORUMS in the GENERAL TRINITY TOPICS FORUM in the Private Section of the Forums.

Enjoy! and happy debating!

Hear ye! Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

The President of Trinity Republic would like to announce a new feature!

We announced a few days ago that something awesome was coming to Trinity Republic. Well I can tell you all now what that big suprise is. The Members of Trinity Republic will now enjoy their very own forum hosted by their own server!!! No more depending on a staff of administrators!

2 Weeks ago, we procured a forum that most matched the ones that we have now hosted through SWG:: DATABASE. It has Avatars, Usergroups, a cool color scheme and many many more features including private messaging! These baords have now been tested by our leadership and most of the smaller bugs have been fixed!

The Migration of all Trinity Republic Members over to the New Forum will begin July 1, 2002. The transistion will be complete by July 14th, 2002. After the 14th, we will begin shutting down whole forums on the old forum site.

A few Questions were raised during the forum tests, and here are the short answers to some of them:

Q. Will we be able to transfer the threads from our old boards to the new ones?

A. Some of the more important threads have been moved over already, but not all of them, JuryDuty has been busy trying to save as many as he can in the public library section of the website in the archives so we dont lose too much of our history. Unfortunately there are over 12,000 posts that he must wade through :(

Q. Why are we switching?

A. We enjoyed our 6 months at SWG::DATABASE, they were a terrific team, but we needed more control over the boards for intel reasons as well as we needed to be able to do things in a hurry. The SWG :: DATABASE Team were terrific, we just neeed our own forums on our own site.

Q. How will it happen?

A. The New Forums Link will be posted in the SWG::DATABASE forums, under General Messages of the Private Forums. The Link will also be emailed out to our members. First, new topics will NOT BE ALLOWED on the old forums, they are to be posted on the new forums ASAP. Secondly, methodically the Forums will be shut down one by one on the old one and brought up on the new one. Lastly, on July 14th, 2002. ALL FORUMS WILL BE SHUT DOWN on the Old Site, with the exception of the public forums, it will have a link to the New Forum.

Database Problem Forces a Shutdown!

Submitted By:Maglarken
Date: Friday, June 21, 2002

Today at 6:40pm, the Trinity Republic database experienced a fatal error that caused it to shutdown. This shutdown caused an irrecoverable database error that further complicated things.

The Database had to be emptied in order to repair the error.

What does this mean? It means that ALL profiles in the database were lost forever! Why? The backup system was NOT backing up the profiles that we thought that they were, it was backing up the OLD database information.


All members will be required to RESUBMIT a Profile unfortunately. This re-submission will begin TOMMORROW and you will be chosen to submit the profile in small groups. PLEASE BE PATIENT! This was an unforseen accident and I apologize for the inconvience, but this will actually help us to purge inactive and uninterested persons.

Please check the forums for details in the General Discussion Area sometime this evening.

It's Coming!!!!

Trinity Republic Closes Down Sign-Up Operations!!

Submitted By:Maglarken
Date: Wednesday, June 19, 2002

Due to the rapid expansion Trinity Republic has experienced in the last month, Trinity has been forced to shut down recruitment and sign-up operations until July 14th, 2002.

This was necessary so that new members could become accustomed to their new family and gain the friendships that we all strive for here at Trinity Republic.

This ban will NOT affect those that have applications submitted already.

If you have questions or comments, please direct them to the President of Trinity Republic, Maglarken at:

Possible Virus Attack!

Submitted By:Maglarken
Date: Tuesday, June 18, 2002

Trinity Republic Email Account Holders:

Be Aware that Trinity Republic is being targetted by a hacker that is foolishly attacking our email accounts with what looks to be a virus.

The suspicious Emails do not contain text, but are large in size, and some have attachments while others do not.

Upom close inspection it DOES NOT APPEAR to be a VIRUS since popular virus scan software have not picked up an alert of any sorts. However, the emails are suspicious enough that it warranted investigation.

If you recieve any of these emails, please forward them to the following email address: - This email account has an automatic virus scanner on it and it will automatically quarantine the emails. These emails will then be forwarded to the CERT (Computer Emergency Response Team) They will be tracking the emails since it is suspicious and it is an unsolicited email.

Again, it is NOT confirmed this is a virus, but to be prudent, we wanted to warn our account holders just in case. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
