Additional ideas for the forum

  • make it so unregistered posters can't post posts with links in them

    true balance is impossible in video games the best one can hope for is to make it really hard to guess which of 2 choices are better.
    and remember kids "NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF JOKES!"

  • Whats about additional Engineering-Subsections in order to sort Threads better? Like Redpower-Engineering, Exploit-Engineering or Frame-Engineering.

  • RP doesn't have a forum and Eloraam is hesitant to make one due to lack of moderation


    It has an unofficial forum.
    Last I heard the reason for a lack of a forum was a lack of time. She hasn't even been on the thread in a week or so.

  • We have tried to make one for her. We offered to pay for it, moderate it and everything. She declined.


    Which is a shame, some awesome stuff can be made using RP2. Seems sad that it will just get lost in the oblivion...


    I personally think the industrial-engineering forum should be closed, only used a portal to the sub forums within it- right now everyone just posts in the industrial forum which defeats the purpose of having neatly organized forums.

  • When I disable avatars in account settings, there is "Picture N/A" image shown as every avatar which makes this feature useless. Completely disabling this field would be a lot better, cleaner and more intuitive. Fortunately there is no "Signature N/A" image. The best option for me would be to have an ability to view posts exactly like they are shown in preview why replying. It makes ratio of content to visual noise a lot higher.

  • I just though that Thread rating could be more of a solution to the morons that only said +1 or -1 in a thread. Having the OP rate his own thread its detrimental to this effect since it throws the scale around for the first few votes, and since the OP vote its always Biased to an automatic 5... Just saying that this system could be used a lot better to know what threads are worth reading or not.

  • I got an idea to reduce "already reported" posts, just don't know if it is possible.


    Make all recently registered users be obligated to read a small alert of "Things not to do\rules" (which includes "do not report bugs that have already been mentioned before") every new thread they make. And apply penalty to those who don't respect it.
    They must click and wait 10s to prove they have read it. [Waiting 10s to create a topic is not much time, enough to make them read it]
    After 20 posts or 1 week after register alert message does not show anymore

    I like it, I predict this would keep down 80% of release date and already reported bug (by my count there have been 18 threads with some e-net ghost related thing in them), but there would always be the 20% of people that can't read and still post a Y U NO RELAESE thread like the famous one

    Is the answer to this question no?

  • Hello guys,


    I was wondering if adding an RSS feed to the forum is a good Idea, at least for the most important topics like "releases,bugs,etc".


    Will

  • Some kind of small live chat box would be nice, like Enjin sites usualy do. Requiring membership ofcourse. Damn Spambots.

  • btw we have that already, ic2 irc chat...

    Change the scheme, alter the mood. Electrify the boys and girls if you'd be so kind.

    Is there ANYONE ever being active in the IRC or do I just come at the wrong times?
