Requests and Suggestions for Forum Upgrades:

Recommended Posts

Haven't heard from Admin exactly what the upgrades would have with them but thought a thread with what we would want to see here would be good, not that they all will be available, but the ones that are then maybe they can be put in place o:)

 

I will be shameless and still beg for a Video Embed button :lol: I've been begging for years for one, because I'm lazy and hate typing youtube a million times :teehee:

 

also most forums I go to have auto embed of Twitter, Instagram etc, hoping that's possible here, or one overall EMBED button with choices for formats

 

what are the ones you would like? :unsure: I think it will have mobile friendly stuff, so ask for what would be helpful for you on that also

YouTube linking, and a sharing post/thread button for Twitter and other social media would be great!

 

 

I just want people to make cool sigs/avis shops again... lol :'(

 

 

 

Would be nice also to have separate sections for FOX's and ABC's AI. IMO

I miss the old blender shops too :'( all the fun contests also.

 

yes for social media, and just now thought a Spoiler Button would be nice too, that hides the text/etc with a click on it o:)

In all seriousness, I think the size restrictions for signatures and avatars could be adjusted. 80kb for avatars seems really outdated since graphics programs churn out bigger file sizes, and I think it was mostly a requirement back when internet speeds were as fast as they are nowadays. :haha:

80KB file size is for signatures. Avatar kb size is up to 400, but anything over 60 has to be hosted online somewhere

 

some of those were probably because of dial-up :lol: they might re-think the sizes then I don't know

Our bios could use a higher character limit, as well. Now that there are so many seasons we list our favourites for, I'm constantly running out of characters allowed.

I really wish the entertainment forum didn't include music/ sports / tv shows all together. It would be nice if those 3 were separated.

I think they did it because those separate forums were not busy enough. :unsure: and they're trying to cut back on forums to manage

I also don't like sports mixed in with tv and music stuff. It's hard to pick it out.

 

Some of the threads were only active part of the year because teams don't play year round.

THIS! Only forum I'm on that is so outdated with those sizes. Looking forward to this forum finally being brought back to life and updated with new things and a new look :D

I don't appreciate secret threads the public don't have access to. It makes it seem very shady and makes us little people think we are being talked about without being able to partake in the conversation. :'( This is discrimination and it shouldn't be allowed. (!)

 

:)

 

That is why God invented FB or texting. (!)

Are you referring to the spoiler threads?

 

 

It does require an account to see those threads, but nothing is overly secretive about it. It's so spoilers about shows are spread all over the site. Not a bad thing. IMO :unsure:

I wonder if we will be able to @ members in our posts? :unsure: that's a cool feature, they get notified of mentions
