The forums need some changes.

  • Ok first off I just wanna say I really like all the changes to the site, blogs and stuff like that. But the forums really need some work. One of the problems is they are way too bright. Hard on the eyes. Give us a style more like the old forums, or at least something a little darker.

    Also there really needs to be some new mods. I hardly ever see any of them post. Since the forums first started back in October I've only seen like 6 of the mods post much. With the amount of people here now there really should be more, and they should be people who are actually active.

    It would also be nice if the was some kind of requirement new users have to reach before they can make new threads. There are way too many duplicate threads.

    I think if some of this was done the forums would be a lot better.

  • I agree with the fact that there needs to be more mods, I barely see any of them either, and it is kind of disturbing. I asked a question under this help section and it's been two weeks already and I yet to have had a definitive answer. The new user thing I believe has been suggested before in other forums and I've agreed there and will agree here as well. As far as the colors I actually don't mind them too much.

    When will the developers of games let us actually gamers come up with a creative game idea? The world may never know....

  • This is pretty much the topic of my Forum here

    "Let it all be,"

  • Black would be preferred

  • Yeah, Chf is the most active mod I've seen around the site, followed by Angel. And they only come on when there's business to be done. I barely see Almo, Invis, Pat, Cheech, Erk, and (most unfortunately) Nub anymore. Not that there's much wiggle room since they are currently missing most modly abilities, but it still feels like the order is slipping a bit.

    The forums are a tad too bright, and I'd appreciate it a shade darker, but I find that I've already adjusted to the colour.

    And buddy, we've been asking for a thread-making requirement since the old GI. Hope we can actually get it this time around.

  • I'd like to see a change for the forums too. Maybe a component where you can choose a color scheme of your choice when you log on and browse the forums, kinda like SRK.com and dustloop.com changeable forum color scheme.

    I'd also like to see a place where the mods can put threads that are repetitive into a "Recycle Bin" or "Chatter Box" Forum.

    The iDOLM@STER : A game for real men.

  • Speaking of redundant threads... this should be in the suggestion box thread.

    This is different than making 200 threads on how sweet MW2 is.

  • Or how it isnt...... :/

    A changeable color scheme is in the works for the whole site, not just the forums.  And the forums are going to be reworked and overhauled, but it will take months before we can release the changes.  So just hang in there, and we're going to take a look at all of your suggestions and feedback, and as soon as the ball starts rolling, I'll be updating everyone on what it is we are working on.

    I've nominated a few names for more mods, and seeing if we can get that approved.

  • Thanks for the response Sean, appreciate the fact that it is being looked into and hopefully we can garner some short of resolution.

  • I'm actually on quite a bit more than just when there's business to be done. Although it is true that, when I'm on, there is always business to be done  ; )

    As far as our abilities go, we do have the vast majority of them. There's still no indication of when a thread is locked or moved; I let Nick know about that a while ago, along with my suggestions on new mods again.

    Things around here right now are so very much better than they were during the first month after the re-launch. I know things aren't where a lot of people want them to be, but during that first month I was literally locking or joining 25-30 threads every single day.

    First, thanks to you and the other mods for all your hard work.  We'd be a lot worse off without you guys.  As to the locked threads issue, that is one we are working on actively right now and we will have that in what is planned to come out in January.
