HEADLINES

NulledBB v4 Development - Status Update
As a lot of people will know we haven't been focusing on fixing a lot of the issues that exist with the v3 (currently) version of the website. The reasoning behind this is that we aimed to release a brand new version of the forums in 2020. There was a lot of hype and a massive amount of time put into the development cycle of the website to introduce some fantastic features coming along with it. Unfortunately, the development came to a halt, this was due to some unforeseen circumstances. Whilst v4 has temporarily come to a halt with the move into 2021 I think as a community we should work together to try and make the community strive both on the forums and on Discord (better the forums though). I'm going to be looking for ways of improvement at the current level (v3) and would love to hear what you guys have to say, feel free to open a Suggestions Thread. ~ Nasyr.

NOTABLE THREADS

COVID-19 Discussion Thread
2020 wasn't a great year and as we move into 2021 and with Covid still being a very large part of our day-to-day lives we still have a dedicated thread for discussion around it.
If you'd like to give your point of view, blow off some steam about it, or share your experience this thread is the place to do it.

GROUP NEWS

Challenge, Nullus, Pirates, and Vixen
Nasyr now owns all of the group titles above. These groups at this time are not active and being held until the launch of V4 or a new approach to groups is rolled out. At this time any applications made to these groups are void and will be ignored. I apologize if anyone was looking to join a specific group but due to current activity levels, these groups are not recruiting.

Anime
At the time of this article being released the current standing of the group Anime is unknown.

INTERVIEWS

Interview with Nasyr

Oathkeeper: Hello there Nasyr, I appreciate the time you're spending for this interview. Before anything, tell me, how have you been these days? How's life?

Nasyr: Thanks for taking the time to interview me. I've been pretty good recently, I was ill over the Christmas period but made a swift recovery. Did a Covid test and the results were negative so was nice to clear that up. What about yourself?

Oathkeeper: Glad to hear you're back on your feet. Hopefully, you had a blast these holidays regardless. Personally, I was busy stuffing myself with food and holiday sweets, as well as slaving away for University and writing projects. Casual stuff.
I hope the fatigue from tending to all the forum's needs didn't contribute to you falling ill. It must be tiring being short-handed and having to read so many reports.

Nasyr: Yeah I just left everything alone and more or less just slept for about 4 days to try to get through it as fast as possible. Generally speaking the forums and their maintenance can sometimes be a lot to handle between reports, ask staff, and appeals. That said each staff member does their part but most recently as you'll have noticed less activity from other staff but that is due to a number of reasons in their own personal lives and the current situation. I'm glad to hear that you had a lovely holiday period.

Oathkeeper: Completely natural, it can't be helped. I have to admire your perseverance though. Regardless of the mundane repetition, you press on and, what's even more surprising, you recently decided to re-open the Writers. From what I have heard, the other groups you own (meaning all the other groups) are getting some "backstage work" as well. I am happy things are in motion, but what puzzles me more is: Why did you decide to pop off now? Can you share more information about the rest of the groups?

Nasyr: Mid-2020 I purchased most of the groups being Challenge, Vixen, and Pirates along with already owning Nullus the groups were bought for a reason. At the time V4 was well underway and the group scene was more or less non-existing. I made the decision to scoop up all the groups. This allowed for plans within V4. Originally the end goal was to bring the groups under the control of one person who could then more direct and manage the groups as a whole with appointed leaders from within the community. At this present time, I have put additional user groups to the side to focus on bringing Writers back up to date in which when done I can actually focus on a strategy for the remaining groups going forward in V3 and then eventually into V4.

Oathkeeper: So you weren't just a compulsive buyer... The way you were going, you seemed like you were about to buy the whole forum as well. Well, I assume with the delay of V4, the rest of the preparations followed suit. Having one person rule all the groups sounds like a big responsibility... got any people in mind so far that can take such a challenge up, or should I link the recruitment thread in the interview?

Nasyr: Not at all, there is an end goal of acquiring all the forum groups. The way in which I have in mind is a chain of command system where there will be me owning them but then the Main Leader and then the Sub-Leaders and of course then the members. However, that is subject to change depending on how things go in the coming months. At the moment I think that I need to be sure on the user groups (their goals) first and then I'll be able to focus on who would be best for the position. I did make a thread about recruiting leaders but to be honest, I was looking for ideas there too, none seemed to tick all the boxes. It's more a case of waiting and seeing what the future holds at the current time.

Oathkeeper: Can we expect new user groups as replacements, or the old ones will just make a comeback?

Nasyr: It would all depend, I'm going to be monitoring this closely and approach people down the line about becoming leaders. If they have a good idea for a group and can show there are solid grounds on why it would work well then I'll make the changes. Certain groups such as Challenge which is focused on gaming would probably not change, the reason being a massive percentage of the userbase plays games on some level or another.

Oathkeeper: Sounds fair. But I am itching to address the elephant in the room. What can you tell us about V4? How close are we and what information can you leak if you can.

Nasyr: I was waiting on the big question to be asked as I know a lot of people really do want to know. V4 is a massive undertaking, with some fantastic new features being added along with a sleek new design to freshen the website up across all devices. Overall the entire website will be going onto a whole new level. I've seen the work and tested the new version which the difference is night and day. At the moment we do not have an accurate release time frame, we had hoped to have it here before the end of 2020. However due to a change in circumstances, the development cycle has currently halted and at this time I am unsure when it will pick back up, hopefully soon. This is why at the moment I am focusing on the group's aspect whilst also slowly working through sections to clear them up.

Oathkeeper: I see. I hope the new version also addresses a lot of the current issues, like leeching and broken features, whenever it comes. I'm still eagerly waiting.
Anyways, I would hate taking up more of your time and tiring the readers any more. Before we close this lengthy and informative interview, I have one last question: You have been a member here for a while and you're still around. Can you name a person/people that used to be active but no longer are and you wish the V4 would bring back?

Nasyr: Yeah that’s it the main goal is to bring to life new features and design whilst also fixing some minor issues here and there as we go along. To be honest there are loads of people who used to be really active here who’ve since moved on from forums or just disappeared. Would be hard to say who because I’d like to see every one, even people who are active in discord, get on the forums and be posting now and in the future.

Oathkeeper: Truthfully, a really touching wish.
And with that, this wraps up this issue's interview. Let this edition be the beginning of many great things. Thanks again Nasyr for joining this session and I hope you keep up the amazing work.

Nasyr: Thank you for taking the time to interview me.

GAMING NEWS

Cyberpunk 2077 loses over 75% of players on Steam
Quote:Cyberpunk 2077 has become a controversial topic to discuss since its release on December 10 last year, with its 'fall from grace' hitting major news networks around the world. After hitting a record-breaking 1 million concurrent players on Steam, CD Projekt Red's futuristic RPG is now struggling to maintain 225,000 users less than 4 weeks after the game was released. For PC players at least, these numbers dropping at such an alarming rate are an interesting gauge for the satisfaction level of the gamers who purchased Cyberpunk 2077, and the potential future of the game itself.


Microsoft’s ambitious Minecraft Earth game is closing down on June 30th
Quote:Microsoft is closing down its Minecraft Earth mobile game in June, due to the ongoing pandemic. The ambitious game had aimed to rival Pokémon Go and cover the world in virtual blocks for players to meet and play together. The final build of the game is being released today, which reduces the amount of time it takes to craft in the game and the cost of certain materials. It’s designed to let players craft and build more easily and safely at home in the coming months before the game is disabled on June 30th.

WORLD NEWS


Introduction
2020 has been an exceptional year for all the wrong reasons, however, we will be going into 2021 with a brighter future ahead. Unless you are a Republican Trump-Supporting Anti-Vaxxer with no faith in the crypto market, in which case the most notable stories of this year are completely miserable and irrelevant to you.

US Presidential Election
Quote:As foreshadowed, a story that has interest all over the globe; the Presidential Election of the USA has reached its conclusion. On the 20th of January 2021, Joe Biden shall be sworn into office, having triumphed over Trump with 51.8% of America's votes, crushing Trump's 43.4%.
Many controversies have followed this decision, Trump and his supporters have taken legal action against many states, although to not much avail.
Ultimately it is likely Trump will once again become a Private Citizen of the United States, to the great pleasure of many, and the dismay of some.

COVID-19 Vaccine
Quote:COVID has taken the world by storm over the past year, with over a 1.84million deaths worldwide (as of January 3rd, 2021) however this era of fear is soon coming to an end with the help of vaccines being provided and distributed worldwide.
It is likely that you will not be receiving a vaccine in the near future unless you happen to be one of the unlucky few with serious health conditions or a healthcare worker on the frontline. For the rest of us, below the age of 60 we will be waiting for a while, perhaps half a year for things to go back to normal. Hold out! You can do it, a future with no masks is coming soon, and I for one am looking forward to smiling at old ladies in the grocery checkout queues!

The vaccine is a first of its kind, editing the mRNA teaching the body to combat the virus, unlike past vaccinations with containing a small isolated sample of the virus itself to build resistance. Regardless you can read more about it by clicking the title of this section.

Bitcoin
Quote:Finally in financial news the notorious king of cryptocurrencies Bitcoin has hit an all-time of $35,000 per coin proving to all those that it is here to stay. In the past it reached a massive all-time-high of $19,783 famously creating millionaires with its rally, however, on the 2nd/3rd of January 2021 it smashed that topping at $34k and as of the 6th of January it has breached the $35k mark!
Many of you I am sure had investments to be congratulated on, will you be looking to sell and purchase something nice, or continue to hold down your coin?
