    Oh you have a suggestion / possible idea for the new forums?
    Let me just take the initiative here and create a thread for this because I'm seeing suggestions for the forums all over the place in all sorts of threads. Some people have some really cute ideas and I hoping it would help Mirage out if they were all directed/placed into one thread, instead of 10 :p

    So feel free to post your suggestions here that you think would be great to have in the forums or little tweaks to add to improve user experience on the forums.

    I believe I've noticed people mentioning the following:
    ~ More of these awesome :cool: smilies :eek:
    ~ Slightly different colour scheme.
    ~ Gaps between posts to help differentiate posts from each other.
    I would also like to include:
    ~ Additional Fonts, such as Comic Sans (its my fav :3)

    Please post your own suggestions below ^-^

    Alright, unsure whether this is a bug or not. If not, it is a suggestion.

    Can we have the dislike post button count as a neutral or negative reputation. It makes no sense for it to count as a positive reputation like it does currently.

    Also, can we have this thread moved to Online Operations as well?

    Also, if people are having issues with reading the posts cause of the fonts, perhaps change the default font to Arial. Just seems to be an easier font on the eyes imo.

    Is it possible to add avatars via URLs instead of just uploading a pic on your own pc?

    Mirage ಠ_ಠ What are you looking at?

    Get me clean (ie no ugly white border around them) .png's and the suggested :TEXT: for each and I'll consider adding them.

    Also humpz, just deal with it. :p

    Is it just me or are the "like the post" or "thank you" buttons missing from the forum?

    Well if you donate / are a Black Ops, you get this function

    However, perhaps there should be a very basic option available for normal members that just have a single "like" option.

    Can we get an thanks option added to the little icon rate bar?

    With a gold star as the icon?

    Like this one?

    ALSO, is it possible to have some sort of Gallery?

    Where images uploaded on posts can automatically be placed into the Gallery as well?

    It would be a lot easier to find imagery of NOTD for graphic artworks that way.

    You just barely got him to increase/remove the upload memory cap... you do realize web-servers have a limited amount of storage space (which they pay for) too, right?...

    Seriously, we should just set up something to forward players to a different image/file hosting site that we can pull them off of if need be (evidence for reporting players, replay dumping for videos, etc.). There's a reason there is(was?) an upload cap per player; it would fill up the server memory space and fuck over everybody/thing else. I'm sure Mirage can explain more on our problems in this department; I'm only familiar with the general issues from being web-master of my scouting troop.

    Mirage ಠ_ಠ What are you looking at?

    If it ever becomes an issue we can revisit this kind of thing later, there's always the option to swap over to a small CDN to hold larger things if need be, but don't worry about us running out of space for the time being.

    In fact I just cleared out 4 GB of space by deleting old error logs (Yes.. 4 GB of raw error text files lol)

    I just realized we got 'Bug reports' forum (empty) where you can post game bug report and 'Game bugs' subforum in 'NOTD Discussion' (actually used).
    First one should be cut out unless it is for some forum based bugs but then it needs renaming as now they both seem to have same use.

    The first one is an actual form to report bugs which would go directly to a mod (Mirage, AP, Shooz, Ability), but cannot have any player feedback or discussion. I think that's something Mirage was fiddling around with, because he mentioned attempting a form like that on mumble.
