A few forum suggestions.

Post by kloneman on Thu Jul 04, 2013 8:37 pm

Alright these aren't really big problems, but my obsessive need for everything to be tidy and organised has kicked in.

1. There are way too many sub forums, I honestly don't think you need that many. There are some sections that will probably fit elsewhere in a different category. For example you could simply create a 'General Pokemon Discussions' sub forum and then multiple threads talking about Pokemon X and Y or other games in the series could fit neatly in there. Another example, you don't need that many off topic sub forums, they could probably just fit it all under one sub forum called 'Off Topic'.

2. Not sure if you can change this but the 10 character minimum limit for a thread title is pretty annoying, for example earlier I was making a thread about PokeMMO, now this is only 7 characters, so that meant I had to add more to the title just so I could post it.

Okay, so maybe I'm just being a little nit picky here, but I'd appreciate it if you took the time to read all of this.

Thank you very much for your patience.
Best regards,

Hey there Smile

First, thank you for your feedback. I definitely appreciate any opinions on what's going on. Whether or not they are implemented.

I am not able to change the thread title limit, as far as I know of.

For the forum part, I won't make too much of a response on that just yet. Over tonight and tomorrow I plan on doing a lot of renovating for the forum. As a quick note, I like to have a lot of sub-topics so people know exactly where to post things.

I understand right now, when the forum is young, it isn't completely needed. But as it grows it will be helpful. Nevertheless, the forum will look a bit different by tomorrow's end anyway Smile So make sure to check back and let me know your feedback again Smile

Go to the admin panel >> display>> strucutre & hierarchy >> then go the the bottom and search :

"Title length of the last topic on index : JUST ENTER YOUR VALUE


That work? I admin a couple forums, but not a forumotion one. That is what I could find though.

I disagree with length of title.  Title should be a good descriptor, and using 10 character minimum is great.  Otherwise you get titles like "lol" and then how the F do I know what its actually about?

Keep 10char limit, IMO.

Even DDP agrees

So you better agree, or get caught in a [Diamond] Cutter!

We are not writing scientific papers, while lol is a horrid title is something like the earlier mentioned PokeMMO, or hello in the new trainer area? Personally I would go with a minimum of 5, 7 if you really want to force longer titles.

Just remember, high minimums doesn't force good titles. You still get really vague things like "my suggestions" in the suggestion area, and you could just have padded titles ~~~lol!~~~

Hahahaha. Thanks for the ideas, guys Smile  I'll check into that, @JJcalem . Thanks. But yeah if it lets me change it, I'll probably go 5 or 7. That sounds good.

And yes, Donald would feast on their souls!
