I have added support for editing submitted applications, as well as cancelling your app (in case you've had enough already, or want to choose a different faction).

If you had submitted your app prior to the change going in that added checkboxes to opt-in for showing your team tags on the factions listing, as well as indicating interest in sharing a faction, please update your app to indicate one or both of those if you like. I did not want to assume anything for either of those so they default to "no" for both.

I'll look into the map navigation next.

How do I access the previous app from the page? I don't see a link.

Fixed that -- I jumped the gun on this announcement, I had pushed it to the test environment but not production yet. That's fixed, you should now see "Submitted" in the Factions listing as a link you can click to re-open the app.

I see the link but clicking it does nothing.  Javascript: void(0)

OK try again -- there was one thing I had forgot.

I am going to go to a more formal rollout now for changes to the site and automation, and not do things unannounced in the middle of the day. I apologize for the inconvenience, it shouldn't happen again!

No inconvenience. Figured this is all part of testing the automation :P

That being said...same error.

Edit: nvm works now.

Edit2: ok, cannot honestly tell if anything on our changed application went through.  Added some comments, checked off we don't mind who sees what we applied for etc.

Try to force a reload -- this sounds like a caching issue. CTRL-F5 will do it in Chrome, for example.

Yeah they are dribbling in, many teams aren't sure what to take as they are not sure how much commitment is required.

Also -- have you spoken to any clan loyalist teams about interest in JF, CW or GB? I haven't seen anything from anyone on that side of the fence (so far you are the only Clan applicant ;) )

I know two of three were spoken of by Russian teams and believe CGBI or GCGB might have interest as well.

None of the traditional CSJ units were coming that I know of (even with that faction effectively erased in this timeline, I still thought there'd be some interest, especially since PGI chose to leave them in).  Several were on the fence and wanted time to debate the merits and which faction to go with (like WTAU/GTAU).

We'll have to keep promoting the league and I know MtD sent some notes out on MWO to get some folks interested as well.

Awesome, thanks. Bandit talked to Bombadil about doing a podcast for NBT, that may happen in a couple of weeks (timing is good because I should be able to have enough polish in the automation to show some screenies). And he was also talking to Tina about in-game adverts, so that could help seed interest too.

I was hoping that the CSJx guys would be interested, considering many of them played back in the NBT-Mercs days.

X,  can you clarify exactly which of the Clans is considered a Major for this timeline?

I'm about to go full court press on promoting that component, but need to know exactly who needs filling.

I think IS is pretty clearly understood.

Also, for the purposes of the league, will FRR operate as a Major or a Minor (as I minor, might help them with defending their slim holdings) and I think more accurately represents their position.

FRR is minor in this timeline, but they are impervious to assault from the clans for the next 5 years (we are in 3062).

The Major Clans are the ones in the invasion corridor -- Jade Falcon, Wolf and Ghost Bear, with Nova Cat, Wolf-In-Exile, Steel Viper and Diamond Shark on the next level. All other clans are likely to remain in the homeworlds for the foreseeable future.

FRR: because what is left resides south of the truce line I take it?

It'd be CJF/CSV, CW/CHH, CGB/CNC -- where is CDS again?  Also, IF a Clan earns it's way up, it's eligible to challenge for a corridor or no?

We can live without CHH at startup, same with CNC. It would be better to have a WX at startup, otherwise I have to give the ARDC back to LA to start with. CDS and CSV come later in the invasion corridor, so we can start without them too.

As for other clans promoted to the invasion, that will likely happen on an as-needed basis, and would probably be done via trials. "As needed" in this case would be a seat-of-the-pants measure -- if the existing invasion clans need a pressure relief valve on load, that sort of thing.
