PostSubject: Suggestion: For the forums   Mon Apr 01, 2013 11:18 am

I have a few suggestions for the forums nothing (THAT SHOULD HAPPEN) just giving my ideas out

#1 A Homepage Shoutbox (So all of the members/staff can interact besides posting each topic/replies)
#1 More RANKS such as Global Moderator & Enforcer ETC (This would help prevent spam, etc)
#3 Default AVATARS when people signup SUCH as something in RED saying REF (It's all mischievousness)

---------------------

Thanks for taking the time to read

Thank you for the suggestions! We have heard the shoutbox suggestion many times, but I will not allow it as it detracts from real forum activity. As for ranks, since we are a smaller forum compared to most, 3 administrators are quite enough. If we gathered a large enough user-base, I would bring back the moderator position and maybe add a few more. Until then, having any more members policing the forum would just add a greater potential for abuse of power. Your third suggestion is one I have not heard before and it is really good. I'm going to look into it. Hopefully our forum host has that option.

You should maybe let members create default avatars and choose whatever one's you
like or think would suit the forums best.
I can muster up a huge collections of custom made avatars that relate to REF and Resident Evil

What are "moders"? If you're referring to the admins, then they should get to vote just the same as you or I. They're members, too.

Yeah totally, should be a voting system.
I would say to make it more professional it shouldn't be bumped pics, as in don't just look up
google images or deviant art for images, they have to be made by the user submitting them.
A range of different style would be great as well, from 2D/3D/pixel/painted, basically all kinds of art styles to give it variety.

I think he means as a suggestion to improve the forum we ban Paul W Anderson.
Though I have no clue as to why he said this, maybe just another member that spam's random messages in order to rack up his post point, I dont know.

Y'know, not to be an asshole who contradicts or anything, but on a forum I co-own, we thought this until we tested the theory and well, the results in effect revealed:

1 - The activity on Shoutboxes is very different to content elsewhere, substituting none.
2 - It entices people to remain on the forum longer as they engage in conversation and thus increases their posting as they're conveniently here to do so.
3 - It integrates the community more with direct bonding.

Now, this isn't to say it won't detract from activity due to unforeseen complexities or even coincidence, but I do believe a test, with statistical comparison for a week, is certainly not going to harm the forum in the long-term?

I liked what he suggests. There's no harm in trying right? Just like Ghost, I voluntered myself as one of the enforcer as well. I agree that the default avatar is the Umbrella Logo. It perfectly fits in the forum.

Authority figures when unnecessary? Too prone to power-tripping and status-wannabes... I mean, they're enforcers, but what would they be enforcing? It'd become nothing more than a status and the only outcome possible, definitely negative, would be power-tripping- enforcing where it's useless to feel artificially useful but egoistically powerful.

I'm not actually pushing for such a position to be made. Wink

I've got the experience for it under my belt and if Spike or Nite ever felt my assistance was needed, all they'd have to do is ask. Beyond that, I'm just here for the community. Smile

See a lot of talk about ideas for the forums lately; The like button situation, an RP thread, ect ect. Thought it would be a good time to bring this thread back up.

What do you guys want to see on the forums? Do you have any general ideas for the community in general? News of re7 is bound to surface soon, so we can expect a higher involvement on the forums in the near future.

I've always pushed for a chatbox, but the other admins don't feel that's a good idea. It makes sense too that a chatbox would mean members don't have to post on the forums anymore, but I also think it'd free up spam posting. Double edged sword, so best not to meddle with it.

I'm interested in hearing thoughts on forum improvements.

We tried a chatbox day, but I think chatbox weekend sounds like a better idea. That way, I don't have to keep track of turning it off after 24 hours. Because you basically have to do it manually every single time.
