Guys, we're almost done! I think the group is on its final stages, we have a set of large and healthy groups to draw staff members from, and we have a useful MOCpages Hub user account for said staff-members to use. The last two tasks (once we've finalized the Hub homepage) are:

- Writing some news articles to unblock the Hub account from private mode and fill up the homepage of the MOCpages Hub group
- Inviting people to the MOCpages Hub group

I suggest each group that has 75% approval or greater in the "Determining Founding Groups" thread prepare one to two articles about itself (an introductory article and possibly a special event article), and someone should write an article about the MOCpages Hub itself.

Well, since no one has really been around, I don't think this can go on right now because it needs solid commitment from I'd say at least 5 people.

With me, that makes four of us. I've been dead for a little while (e.g., concerned with the Tourney, LOM, holidays, travel, a new term, planning a long trip, and so on), but I'm back.

MOCpages (or MOC-pages) is being really slow, though, so that will contribute to some delays until the server transfer is complete. If no one else has already done so, I can probably find time today or tomorrow to log in as the Hub and post first comments for the conversation threads, and I can easily write an article about the Tourney and probably some other article as well in the next week.

Im 100% committed ! I know i haven't been active but i am now.

Also, Should i start work on setting this group up to be a private staff group ? Im good for that kinda stuff. Then we dont have to even think about it during/after making TheHub public.

How about making a new group for the people representing the groups with higher-than-75% approval in the founding groups thread? That way we don't have to kick a lot of people out of this one to make it into a staff group.

Ok, that also raises a question: Whose going to be a admin of the group ? should we vote or just let you pick ? (and yes ill make the Staff group)

So since the activity bar is fixed does that mean this is done?

Lets start chipping at what's left to do, We need to all start giving input for the final Hub homepage.
The first news letter needs to be posted, so lets all throw some pitches for what it will be. Then we can see who'll be the best for the job.
The whole reason we are doing this is to boost activity on mocpages by uniting groups; so we've got to be active ourselves !
Right now the Homepage looks very weird and confusing
May i suggest that we save what we have and go back to the normal group layout? Im not talking about doing it permanently but just so its easy to finish up the group.
I'm not great with fancy writing or HTML so ill keep my hands off of the edit button.

Since we are quickly losing and have already lost most of our "team" we cant get things done as fast. solution: Roll back some of the things that need to be completed for the homepage. Here's the good part; by using the base model for the homepage we can finish it up sooner (and have a much easier time doing it) and get the Hub public. Then we can keep working on it and put it on the homepage in the future.

If we do that then we can be ready to go public in less then a week! which means a boost of activity from the inactive staff, hopefully.

Done as in ready to go public? Not quite. Done as in irrelevant? Definitely not - this should work even better with the activity bar. To be perfectly honest, though, I personally might be "done" - I barely have enough time to keep up with the Tourney judging these days. Maybe my schedule will lighten up as I get it in order, but maybe not. If it does, then I am certainly up for continuing this project. If not, I agree that we need at least five active people to run the group, and I can't count as one for the time being. Until we can accomplish that, we're at a standstill.

Likewise; While I still think this is a fantastic idea, personally, I don't have enough time to actually participate in the construction of the group. University is really on top of me at the minute and so my MOCpages time has really been reduced. However, I am still around and checking in, so, I'll help with whatever I can, when I can.

I'm also sorry that I haven't been active lately. I don't think that I will still be one of the "main constructors" of the Hub project, but I'll help out whenever I can!

I still have some questions, though.
Did we really all agree about calling the group/project "The Hub"? What about the term/title "The United Groups of MOCpages"? Where will we use this term? It's not that I am mad that nobody uses the name I suggested, but I'd like to be certain what we're talking about. And since this group, the official MOCpages account, the future group's description and some of its topics include the title "MOCpages Hub" now, it would make sense to make it official, because it would be too much work to change everything back.

My idea for one of the first news letters is the announcement of The MELO 2016, MOCpages' largest contest, which will probably be open for public in late February/early March.

Sounds good to me! A big contest should draw at least a few views to it!

Yeah, we have definitely leaned toward "TheHub" its just a bit more catchy and makes more sense. But your question did just give me an idea; What if we refer to all the groups participating as: The United Groups Mocpages or UGM ? I think that would be boss !

Yeah sure, we can use the normal layout. I have it saved elsewhere, so you can take parts you want from it and delete the rest :)

I like that distinction: the group is the Hub, the groups are the UGM. That makes much more sense.

Anyone want to upload a post through our admin account to get it activated (or possibly shut down by the real admins for impersonating authority)?
Note: Maybe we could rename it to simply "Hub" to avoid confusion.

as longs as its not "hubby" im cool with the name change, my computer doesn't like it when i use multiple accounts on Mocpages (as in it doesnt let me) so until i figure that out i cant do anything with the Hub account.

I did some "un-editing" to try and clean it up so it doesn't look so broken (Page flow wise). I won't do anything further because my HTML is not good enough to fix anything I break.

If you use an incognito or private tab, you shouldn't have any problems with multiple accounts.

We need a few starting posts, but then we can start bringing in members. If you want to write one for the Insurgency and post it with the Hub account, I can do one for the LOM and the Hub itself.

We're using the group's creations area to showcase news and other posts, instead of relying on comments for that. I meant that we should have two or three of those already up when we start inviting people so that the group doesn't look empty and half-finished, that's all.
