Only one of the poll on Gps home page it said something like do you know if you game has files that can be uploaded that we can create a content for them. So I was thinking can we maybe get a betetr raid point feature one where we can set the points and then upload the raid dumps and it will do the points basted off the ppl who showed up not nesisarryly signed up? Right now I am useing a free form HMTL page and typing these all up by hand and some of the ppl arent even registered to my site and the only thing we really use the cal for is to announce raids. Some type of content where I can upload my raid dumps to and it will put in the ppls names and give them the points would be great. Maybe an upload simialr to the In Game roster upload EQ has and it will put everyones Name, Level and Class and then give them points based off how you have it set up.Would something like this be all that hard to make up?

So, the problem then, is that a lot of your guild members don't visit the website, and those that do don't always sign up for the raids they'll be attending? I can see how some custom programming on the guildportal side of things would be a good solution for that, but another good solution might be to get your guild members to actually use your guild website.

Believe me, I know how hard that can be. But if folks aren't using your website actively in the first place, why would you want to make it even easier for them not to go there, while at the same time adding more content they're not going to see anyway (since they don't go there in the first place)?

This would be a cool feature to have i think. It would be good for guilds who don't use the calendar but still tally the points and put them on the website. My guild uses the raid dumps and then enter the points onto a seperate page. Someonthing that does this automatically using the Raid Dumps would be pretty nice. We use the calendar when we can but alot of times we just go out and kill something since we cant announce raids that much becasue we have no idea what will be up at the time and the number of people who will be on.

Thank god these opinions are only yours... While it is nice to have a DKP system for the user to look at it is more for administration to be honest from my part.   Not to mention that the DKP system here is severly lacking in things such as ADMIN removal and addition of points without having to create an event.

Telling someone who is just suggesting a new feature "Hey try getting your members to your site instead" is pretty crappy in my opinion... Thats like saying "If you want to see the sky look up" stating the obvious doesnt solve the issue that some people hate loging in to a forum.

 Currently i use a diffrent dkp system and ADMIN 285 members on it. The reason i do this is because guild portals DKP system is nearly unmanagable in its current state for any guild of size.

Hmmm.... Actually, I agree with both of you. Yet I disagree with your flaming the poor guy for trying to suggest a more Pro-Active guild membership as I have the same issue and am on the verge of going Tyrannical and ruling Carpe Madidus with an Iron Fist. I have busted my buns tring to get these guys to be at meetings, vote in polls, check out addons, etc. They claim to "not have time" but when i log onto the game I see like 10-15 members on at once. THAT is annoying!
