Suggestions on how to improve the forums

posted by ryannumber1gamer on - last edited - Viewed by 21.8K users

I made this thread so people can discuss how the fourms can be improved so i'll start off.

I think the classics part of the thread should be back in the main menu of the fourms with all the rest of the forums topics because since they are in the classics hardly anyone ever replys anymore to them.

  • How did you manage to make the same typo 3 times in a row? That takes skill.
    At this point, I'm starting to think that sign-up security should be increased. Reviewing accounts before granting access, or other safeguards. The spamming is getting ridiculous.

    There's a bunch of typos in his post. I think he doesn't even bother to check something once he's typed it.

    I'll agree with the security thing. I've seen more than a few bots slip through the net.

    Beyond that, nothing really comes to mind. Maybe ask people to stop making new threads for every little thing that pops into their head? I dunno.

  • It would be nice if the forums didn't go down every day at around 9AM. But I guess that's necessary.

    Bloody hell you must be in England.

  • It doesn't email me everyone's password when They sign up please fix

    original.0

  • Lets not do user verification. Our mod staff is way too small for that and it would just drive new people away to wait.

    What needs to be done is the creation of a code of conduct for mods because it's kind of the wild west and some people get banned for the smallest things while others doing worse stick around forever. It's just very odd. The whole prevalence of post deletion is also very odd.

    While I like our mods, theres just a huge air of unprofessionalism and disorganisation about them, akin to the staff at an anime convention. It's kinda annoying at times to witness.

    I think the forums would be greatly improved if people had proper grammar and spelling.

    Hello!

    Yeah, it going dark around 9AM our time is a tad frustrating, since it's when I'm usually still around. But then again, if they moved it back an hour, I suppose someone else would just get upset. Damned if they do...

  • Change the blue to red, which is not only the official Telltale colour, but also my favourite colour.

    (Or is there some psychological reason for not doing this? As in, red makes forum users more aggressive?)

  • If we wanted the forums to be a calmer place, youd want to make the place seafoam green. Theres a reason why asylums were painted that color, you know.,other than being easy on the eyes of doctors who just got out of surgery and seeimg a ton of blood...
