Another update has hit the Lodestone -- this time announcing upcoming changes to the site itself. The main improvement will be Linkshell pages that can serve as hubs of communication for players who venture together in the game.
Im very excited about this update because ffxivpro will undoubtedly rank shells on each server. We have been working very hard in our shell to get as high as we can and would love to know where we stand on Istory haha
I think this would be really cool, maybe help out with LS recruiting, or the advertisement of crafting LSes. I wonder if they'd allow us to put a linkshell type in, so shells can be searched based on type (categories: Social, RP, Endgame, Crafting, NM, Leve, anything else?)
I'm not sure it will change things for some of the larger LSs (like the groups who span multiple games, or similar multi-purpose groups), I truly think this is a game changer for Square. If they impliment it correctly, it will greatly simplify being an organized LS. I know I suck at HTML and web layout, if I had a LS it would be pigeonholed into a Yahoo groups page or something similar. However with a (assumed) facebook/myspacish layout tool and a free host almost any one could make an informative and relaxing LS tool.
