Bulletin - October 2018
Runefest I write this bulletin inbetween preparations for Runefest, which is happening in just a few days from now. Sixteen clannies are scheduled to visit Runefest itself, with more to join us for Clan Quest socials on Sunday. We will be sharing our experiences on the Clan Quest Twitter and Facebook, but even better, you can check out the one and only Clan Quest Runefest Hub. If you want to add to the feeds, get in touch with Shane and he can make sure we're including you in the hub.
Also keep an eye out on our website, where we'll be sharing a report and more pictures soon afterwards. If you're around London during the Runefest weekend, it's not yet too late: you're welcome to join the picnic on Friday or the social program on Sunday!
Last year we made a pretty big impact on Runefest. There were Clan Quest t-shirts everywhere. This year will be no different, and we've got some amazing t-shirts ready to look the part during this year's festivities!
You can find the results, and some of the considerations that went into the new logo, in this thread. The new logo came to be after many iterations, and symbolizes important aspects of the clan. A few that stand out to me are that the logo is based on a heraldic design, representing family, the dragon's protective stance over the shield, representing that we look out over our members, and the open wings, representing our welcoming nature.
The responses so far have been very positive, and we've made some good progress on implementing the branding across our platforms. We're still working on some places that need updating, but you'll see the remaining places switch over soon.
Some of you have asked about getting your own t-shirts or other garments decorated with your favourite clan logo. Our immediate focus is on Runefest, but it is our full intention to enable everybody to buy their own Clan Quest gear from some time in the coming months onwards. We're comparing opportunities to make sure we can cater to as many people worldwide as possible while still getting reasonable prices and quality. Keep an eye out on this space.
Talking about mobile-friendliness, we have worked on several #fixmobile fixes over the past few weeks. The forum should now be easier to browse on mobile, the navbar no longer clips on smaller screens (partially thanks to the smaller logo), and more.
We've also spent time to make the wiki more newbie-friendly to get started with. Visual Editor is now the default, and should now make wiki editing as easy as editing a Word document. Consider taking the time to create your own user page!
Sirapyro has been doing lots of work on adding new content to the wiki, and we now have a Wiki Discussion. Here you can see what is being added and discuss it, but you can also use it to ask any questions you have.
The website is a continuous work in progress, so we will keep making changes over time, but do feel free to reach out to the Clan Council if you have some points of feedback.
A diamond anniversary
I guess you've all heard about wedding anniversary presents at least once in your life. You know, silver is for the 25th anniversary, gold for the 50th, superior bronze for the 99th, you get the idea. According to the tradition, diamond is the material for the 75th. You better start saving, because this magazine issue you've just started reading is in fact the number seventy five! (Yes, I realize we're not actually married to the magazine, and that this is not the 75th year and that I've lost track of how many magazine anniversaries I have celebrated but as usual I don't care.)
I'm actually honoured to be called the editor in chef (or was it chief?) of this magazine. But I can be called like that just because there is an amazing group of people called the Content Editors, who actually work a lot to bring you the Questaholic, the wiki, the social media, and more. Thank you everyone who made it possible to reach this 75th issue. Thank you everyone for your uninterrupted support. And thank you, of course, for that diamond.
*yells from the distance* And happy -wow you're actually saying this again- anniversary, Questaholic!

Fri Sep 14, 2018 9:54 amWe all know him as somebody who tirelessly goes through the wiki fixing one thing and another. Lately, I have been working hard on getting the t-shirt designs finished, and Sira has been able to respond to my nitpicky requests of small logo changes without actually kicking me so... yay!
I am going to nominate Sirapyro.
