A couple of features that I'd like at Elysiun


(CubeFan973) #1
  1. The ability to lock posts yourself. Of course, this would have to be limited (i.e. locking the topic as soon as it’s posted), but it’d get me off the moderators’ backs about locking up topics I’ve started that have turned into flamewars. Of course, a moderator could lock it down for good or unlock it, and it’d have to be restricted to your own posts (duh).

  2. An easier way to do polls. Add the question, optionally the amount of time, then you have to insert one by one the choices… AAAHHH! Can’t you just make a list where every “enter” means a new choice should start? Not really necessary, but it’d be helpful, I think.

  3. A new forum made for flame-wars. Whenever it seems that someone’s getting flamed, it’s moved into there. This would be truly helpful, as I’ve started some heinous flame-wars and can’t resist making comments on them, only to have my point undermined somehow.

  4. An automatic CubeFan973 useless-junk-meter! (From spending too much time around flames on me, I’ve grown a habit of insulting myself… ever seen that scene of “hit me somewhere” from “Fight Club?” Neither have I, but I guess i just have to make myself normal somehow!)

  5. More emoticons or smileys or whatever they’re called. Of course, not too offensive (at BlenderGames.com, one can flip another off with an animated emoticon), but we have overused our current ones, and need new ones to shock people :smiley:

  1. NO
  2. It’s easy enough, this isn’t AOL.
  3. What do you think the off topic forum is?
  4. YES
  5. YES

I know it’s Christmas soon, but do you think Kib looks like Santa?! :stuck_out_tongue:

I agree about the emoticons though.

(I will keep it there for a while, so if anybody needs to express those christmas feelings and just can’t find the words. Feel free to use it :wink: )

How about a “print hardcopy” hyperlink that would give you a new window with just text and graphic that the posters have linked in. I have seen this in other online forums.

Guys, there’s a reason that the post is “Features I’d Like To See On Elysiun” and not “THINGS THAT KIB MUST INSTALL ON ELYSIUN RIGHT NOW!” Not all of them are really big deals. Emoticons, though–we do need more that we don’t do ourselves. For the lazy/websiteless.

The reason flame-wars should be thrown into another forum made special for them is that some people would rather not be involved in flame-wars. Usually, if it’s long and has been moved, it’s a flame-war, so that’d tip us off.

Just in case: We also need the moved things to tell us where they’ve moved.

why can’t you see a joke when one is made? :wink:

you know, there’s a strange thing called will power. If you don’t want to participate in a flamewar or don’t want to read one, then DON’T.

That depends on who moves the topic, since there’s an option to leave a notice in the forum where it was originaly.

ooooooh…Cubefan…I think you just started another flaming session…whoa, mind that fireball…LOL :stuck_out_tongue:


(IMProvisar) #10

Folks, I wouldn’t expect any big changes to the forums… the code isn’t Kib’s, it’s a PhPBB, and as I understand, Kib doesn’t want to change much, because that would make it difficult to upgrade to newer versions put out by PhPBB.

Hi… :smiley:

I agree with the emoticons idea…

Well, perhaps CubeFan’s “power of will”, is weak… :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue:

Cause it seems whenever a nice flamewar starts, he’s always around… :wink:

Spyros.


(Alltaken) #12

that is usually becuase they start in his topics.

so really he is not around the flamewars they are around him.

cubefan for some reason you say STUPID things that make people flame you.

i just think it is very funny.

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha (where is that emoticon for i’m laughing at you)
