what should we add to the forums
« on: February 22, 2019, 11:38:04 am »
they're new, they're basic, they're great

SMF has a lot of addon packages developed by the community, commonly called "mods."  If you want new features on the boards, they're gonna come from a mod.  The largest repository is on the smf mod site.  You can also search for "smf <feature> mod."

Having said that, what would you like to see added to these boards?  Here's a list of what I'm thinking:

  • require invites to register a new account once we have a healthy userbase built up
  • custom front page/forum theme (geocities)
  • mention users
  • user-generated banners at the top of the site

I don't want to make the forums too accessible so they don't get shit up by the lowest common denominator, so I will definitely not be installing a mobile theme, social links, etc.

Any suggestions or requests are welcome.  Semper fi

The theme I would be willing to make some photoshop stuff for. I got some interesting ideas.

Chat room? I know there is this free php chatroom system I found that has that old jquery look, maybe we could add that.

Second Fod, the old chatroom on the old mdeforums was a great time.

Other than that I have a webpage on my personal site that has a script that makes green Matrix code run down the screen. Also more geocities gifs.

Is there any way the shoutbox can be moved to the sidebar or something? it's kinda annoying to have it at the top of every single page, but I don't want to minimize it necessarily.

edit: also we need a favicon

I'll make homepage exclusive, there isn't a great way to move it around (on the side would be a pain in the ass)

edit: also we need a favicon

Heavy agree.  If anyone would be interested in making a favicon for the site, just make sure it looks good at 16x16 and send me a 512x512 PNG please

EDIT: I've added a favicon to the site.  If you don't see it in your open tabs, try clearing your cache

@Quate I asked about the Litposting section to get made intending it to be a place for creative writing, OC and good old shit (like that SF masterpiece,) but I think it got misinterpreted as a place for discussion of books.

@ralph is it at all possible to modify the section description? Dbe golly nice ovya.  :)

Schizo posts should be wherever the poster wants it to be. It makes it too predictable. Id rather see a fucked wall of text randomly by accident instead of going to a specific sub board.

Also we need a politics board, but use it ironically.  Something for outsiders to see and freak about

I'm not sure if I can set up per-section descriptions.  If you make a post outlining what you'd like to see on that board, that's more than fine

Schizo posts should be wherever the poster wants it to be. It makes it too predictable. Id rather see a fucked wall of text randomly by accident instead of going to a specific sub board.
My thoughts too. schizoposting is globally allowed

Also we need a politics board, but use it ironically.  Something for outsiders to see and freak about
I'll set one up.  Currently thinking about restructuring the forums somewhat so we don't end up with 1,000 boards for super-specific topics.

Put a marquee on the politics subboard in big glitter letters that follows as  you scroll down that says satirical. And one in the to of the main body and footer in those little dancing letters that also say satirical. Just to confuse people who talk seriously and don't
