Survival Guide - Dust Settles: Message of the Day (MotD)
Messages of the day are quick informative blips of news and information that
we use to give you important information or reminders in a slightly more noticeable
manner than standard news can be at times.
These messages will appear on your game screen
on every page just above the mid section.
These messages of the day are for normal announcements and reminders
that range from reminders about saving your
camp name to little humorous blurbs here and there that an admin might want
to say. As soon as one of these is put up, you will see it just above the middle
section of your screen (where all the pages load after you click a link).
An image of the admin who posted the message will be seen beside the message.
At the top right of the message box you will see a (close) link. Once
you have read the message, you can click this link to close the Message of the
Day box so that it will stop appearing on every screen.
If something happens that we need you to note a bit more readily
even than a standard MotD, then we put up a warning message. If you notice this
appear on your screen, READ IT and read any news
that might be associated if it points you to the news. These messages are not
entirely common, but a couple of instances that we have used these before included
a temporary game-wide player ban to upload certain new parts of the game that
could be dangerous with people possibly ending
turns or to fix a server/database problem that had suddenly cropped up.
These messages are very important to note.
You cannot close this type of MotD, primarily because we want you to actually
read it instead of ignore it.
