  1. I have always liked units/clans/what-ever that do something like this. It does give an over all overview of past happenings without reading a bunch of forums postings to get a vibe of what has gone on. But like the Major and LT point out, very time consuming and would require a lot of dedication while not crossing the line of burnout and/or frustration of not receiving the required input on time. Given what you put in the initial post is covered by the Home Page news or Calendar, it is hard for me to see a need of it right not but then right now might be the best time to start the redevelopment of the 3rd ID newsletter. Here is my first suggestion for the news letter, while message for CO should be there. How about a rotating message from other command staff personnel to all those assigned to 3rd ID??
  2. Congratulations to all those who received an award.
  3. Info for our future Website Admin. Exact location may depend on directory structure for the website. Example of the code changes: Currently 813 <label class="ipsFieldRow_label" for="content_field_26">Steam Username</label> 819 <span class="ipsFieldRow_desc">Please enter your steam username.</span> Requested Change <label class="ipsFieldRow_label" for="content_field_26">Combat Unit</label> <span class="ipsFieldRow_desc">Example - Alpha Company, First Platoon, First Squad </span> Could also use the following as it puts everyone as "Fireteam Member" <li class='ipsFieldRow ipsClearfix '> <label class='ipsFieldRow_label' for='content_field_XX'> Combat Position </label> <div class='ipsFieldRow_content'> <input type="text" name="content_field_XX" value="" id="elInput_content_field_XX"> <br> <span class='ipsFieldRow_desc'> Please enter your Combat Position.
  4. Need the template that soldiers use for XML request be updated. Their Steam name isn't important but combat unit can be put in the spot instead.
  5. Hopped on server at the same time as CPL Apollo and verified all looked good, Sir.
  6. Everything appears as it should. The info shows up when you being up map, go to players. It also auto appends [3rdID] to your name when you join our servers.

    Well what I was doing at the time it was happening, don't recall but I do recall making my way to a TV to find out just to see the second plane hitting the towers. I remember speaking with recruiters given I was still in IIAR at the time (though near the end) and calling my cousin who at that time was a CPT at Fort Campbell in the days that followed. All to weigh out my options about going back on active duty.
  8. With you on that Lambert. Friday thru Sunday we have events, might use one of the others days to use and hit our public server to try and draw a few. Given it isn't running mods, people won't need to download anything to join us for some fun. I do realize that it might be hard to get a bunch of us on at one time give time zones. Might look at two groups, one that is US friendly and one that is European friendly times.
  9. Greetings Major, He is administratively assigned as both Senior Recruiter (79S) and the Non-commissioned Officer in Charge (79X). When he was originally assigned as the NCOIC, I believe that Major LaFlash did that but SGM Rizzo still held that position on the roster. As the BMO NCOIC, just trying to get it straighten out now for uninformative.
  10. Unable to get the NCOIC for RRO to standout like it does for NCOIC/OIC for the other S-Shops. Have tried removing and re-adding him back without any luck. It might have something to do with adding CPL Apollo as NCOIC while SGM Rizzo was still also the NCOIC. Not sure how to fix this.
