Brand New Forums: What Needs Done?

Post by Admin on Mon Apr 15, 2013 11:11 am

So congratulations, Soul Smiths. PM:ECN has gotten big enough to need its own forum. The question is this: how do we make that forum awesome? Comment below. Let me know what we need. Post in the forums and lets develop this place into a cool hangout and a useful tool!

Awesome! Is there any reason why some of the UI looks like it's in French? Perhaps more importantly, is this something we can change?

I think there should probably be a thread specifically for the TV tropes page help.
And for updating the mirror.

Edit: Holy shit, who gave me Angie as an avatar I will hug you :O

I'm lovin' my new Pipet avatar as well. So spiffy!

Also, maybe if there was some special non-signature way to showcase the achievements we've gotten?

I will work on that figuring that out, guys, as well as the Tropes and Mirror page. Also, about the French. I have no idea. 0___0 I'm going to look into that as well.

I'm going to have to get used to the avatars being on the left.

Also since we have a new forum we can make custom smilies for it.

Heck yes we can. Have a look at this; when you type :____card:, and replace the underscores with the name of a zodiac symbol, the card comes up as a smilie. Example: :bondcard:

Perhaps a repository of Default Avatars for the site? I see there is a "Site Gallery" option for Avatars. Putting stuff there (eventually) might help, although most people use custom avatars nowadays.

Well I am not a huge fan of the UI or the frenchness. Also I would appreciate having use of the :mspa: emoticon. I cannot tell you how many times I have needed to convey such a emotion on other web sites.

Cool, now all we need is some good reaction smilies of the cast and we're set.

Also WOW NEW AVATAR AND IT'S OF HAIMISH!!!

Any reason for picking him. It's awesome either way! GS are you going to make everyone an avatar?

@turtleOracle: Here's a larger version of the Beanio pic. https://redcdn.net/ihimg/a/img6/4857/beaniolarge.png

@Purple Walrus: Trying to! Very Happy

@Everybody else: The French UI is my next priority. Then we can look at the smilies.

Wooo!
Finally got rid of the XXX. >u>

Maybe we could have a custom forum skin? It'd help make the forum stand out. (We could maybe use the wiki bg)

Okay, I think I fixed the French UI. Everything should be very English now. On to more problems.

I don't think the smithing boards need to be split into three subfora. Just one that's implied to cover character building, fan characters, and EGO shopping should be enough!

While I highly doubt it's possible, if there was a way to incorporate the wiki into the forum that'd be kinda neat. At least I think it would.

I also want to suggest maybe making it possible to have some sort of looping music in the background that won't get annoying. However something tels me that it wouldn't be a good idea considering it'd stop every time you wanted to change a page, and then it'd start over. We could do a test run of it though, I don't think that'd be much of a big deal.

I just added an avatar bank, folks. You can access it when you change your avatar.
