I figured it'd be a good idea to start a thread so people can suggest ideas for INTL v3.0

Most of what I'd like to see has already been suggested, but I thought this up the other night. We should add something to the TOS that says how long you'll be banned for each offense. i.e., a week for bandwidth leeching, a month for using a moderator only thread tag, et cetera. I figure it would be good information to give, and it will keep people from asking when they'll be unbanned and being annoying.

That's all I got right now.

Dr. Bashir: "They broke seven of your transverse ribs and fractured your clavicle."
Garak: "Ah, but I got off several cutting remarks which no doubt did serious damage to their egos."
Dr. Bashir: "Garak, this isn't funny."
Garak: "I'm serious doctor. Thanks to your administrations, I'm almost completely healed but the damage I did to them will last a lifetime."

Warning points like on VB, where you get an autoban after a certian number and are banned until they decrease.

A timed ban - ie ban for 2 weeks, 1 month, etc.

That's all I got right now.

I don't like this idea because sometimes it depends on the situation on how long they should be banned, and if you put a guideline like this and you don't follow it for a person, they will be very loud and very annoying. I'd suggest a "This are not strict guidelines and a banning time may not be judged on this." But people ignore those.
They also ignore the whole TOS, so it's not like anyone will read it anyway.

I think that that would become very confusing. After a while we'd forget who's who.

- There should have a built-in spell check.

- The BBCode manager should have a "color" button considering we can use the [color] option. There should be a color palette to click on too.

Yeah but even if people don't read the TOS, when some one gets banned and starts bitching to be unbanned, a mod can just tell him to fuck off and read the damn TOS to find out the ban length and that if the banned person keeps bothering him than the ban will be extended.

They can tell them to just fuck off anyway. The TOS says that you'll be banned if you do something bad, it specifies no length and therefore they can't bitch if they are being held longer than it says in the TOS.

well, if we use the id option.... or maybe 'changing it' sends a pm or something to an admin and it requires approval.

No, changing usernames is a bad idea.

Sandy, do you think you could write down what you plan to include so that we know what not to suggest? We'd be able to give feedback on what you have already, too.

A Thread, in say suggestions, which tells everyone who is banned currently, and why. Saves wondering.

It is alphabetized, but by original user name, not by current user name.

Thank you for pointing out my stupidity, Sandy. I shall conduct a greater depth search of the site before making other suggestions.

Changing usernames = NO. It'll get confusing with everybody changing their names.

I was thinking about maybe something like a "Highlight" user and "Highlight Thread".

Basically, you can select a thread and add it to your "Highlight" list, and when a new post is made in that thread, a new window opens and lets you know (like the way PMs work). This could also be done with users.

For example, before I log off for the night, I could highlight this thread, and highlight user "Sandamnit". So next time I login, a window will pop up telling me a new post has been made in this thread, with a direct link to this thread. And on the same page, it will say "Sandamnit has responded to these threads: 1, 2, 3", with direct links to Sandy's post in that thread.


I don't know if it would be used enough to be worthwhile, but hell, I'm just throwing ideas around.


BTW, I don't think subforums are a good idea. I just plain old think they are pointless. What on earth could be important enough to get itself a subforum, but not important enough to get a forum of it's own (even for just temporary) ?

I like this Idea. I would use it alot. I hate searching for shit that I realy wanna keep up on. also if it was possible it should open the thread at your last post. That was people don't have to go shifting through long pages to find where they last were.
My old signature was just a bunch of obnoxious zeros and ones, so Sandamnit had to edit my signature to make it less annoying and obnoxious. Also, if I change this signature before June 1st, I will be banned.

On the forum index page, when it shows how many posts have been made in the thread, click the numbered link, find your username, then click "Last Post". Not hard.

perhaps stealing from vB isn't the best course of action, but i *love* the user control panel at something awful. it has a buddy list, a place for subscribed threads and forums, and a link to private messages. shortcuts to the preferences are also included.

these are all things i'd *love* to see in a user control panel. if you added the ability to manage uploaded files, some sort of plugin to the calendar, and maybe a little song and dance, this would be super awesome.

would it hurt if I said the forum is pretty neat just the way it is? It's an opinion, so it's valid. I think this is still a really good format.
