The KOS list has been a sore subject for a while now. There were concerns about how nationalities were listed, the list lacking a proper home, and that ever-appearing question always seems to pop up… “Does Wahoo really care about Sufferlandria, Knights, and the KOS quest itself?”
First things first, should the information about the knighthood quest and the current listing of Knights live somewhere better than here in the forum? On one hand, of course, Sufferlandrians and Knights alike think that these things should be front and center.
On the flip side, these things are nothing without the community that surrounds them, so we could make the argument that this forum is the perfect place for this information to live!
I was going to elaborate more but got too excited… The KOS quest is not lost. In fact, I’ll take the cliché route, and remind everyone that Sufferlandria, the KOS, and our community are what we make of them when we come together.
First CONGRATS to all the new Knights! We trust your lives in the castle will be suitably uncomfortable for now and for evermore
Second, thanks Sir Cody for updating the honour roll (note spelling, ) and listening to our pleas.
Now, let’s get down to bizniss.
Soooo, Sir @Cody.Moore, are we to read in this post that the argument for housing the honour roll in the forums is the argument that won the battle? Is there still a battle?
I’ll take the other side (the flip side of the flip side) that the forum is a sad place for the roll. It lacks panache, aplomb, erm that certain je ne sais quoi.
If there’s still hope, then I HOPE you can reconsider and modify the Wahoo blog page where, if you were to make it the only page, you could add in the pics below and it would be much simpler to maintain (ie update with new eligible vids [here’s looking at you Rue the Day], and newly dubbed Knights as they are approved (every month or couple of months or whatever frequency seems reasonable)
I really miss the numbering system. I miss this taunting, tempting photo:
@Cody.Moore Thank you for posting this list to at least give it a (hopefully temporary) new home!
That said, I completely agree with what Sir @Glen.Coutts said. This deserves to be somewhere more prominent than the forums. And also it definitely needs to have the numbers added back in. And everything that went with it.
Don’t get me wrong, I am very glad to know that the list has a new home. But, it needs a better home than here.
Exactly, else how else are we supposed to market ourselves. Only the genuinely intrigued will make a sortee onto the forum for details. And how are Couchlandrians considering moving over to the light side supposed to know there even is a light side without a Sufferlandria website that lists all the fabulous activities and national products we have on offer.
For the most part, the forum is just a starting point.
I for one knew that the forum was a place to get ideas, tips and advises pertaining to the Knighthood. On the blog, perhaps we can have like a drop down list of all the Knights and Dames (a spoiler kind of list, whereby, when clicked the list reveals itself and when clicked once more, the list disappears).
Got to agree that the forum itself is hardly a home but at least it’s a good starting point.
Have to agree with you Sir @Glen.Coutts and @DameLisa, the used-to-be Sufferlandria website was what got me into SUF back then with all the very intriguing terms used to describe this mythical nation we are all proud to be part of.
In fact, I really miss that site… and would like to see it make a comeback rather than sitting in the wayback machine.
