Why don't we have a gender in the User CP? Something like those signs for males and females.

What about some ranking system - like reputation?

What do you think? Is this all possible? Does vBulletin support this?

There are some suggestions which I don't like. I suggested just those two. :)

2. Eh... popularity contest much? :p


Anyhoo, I'd like... an evil laugh smiley!!! :mis: just doen't cut it! :D

Gender thing - Sure
Rating - Meh.. only if someone wants to get rated. Maybe an option.

Don't know about any other suggestions really. The gender thingy would be great though :tmb:

^^^ The rep system may not be a pop contest. The admins can disable negative rep and make it only possible to give rep once.

The gender thing has been said about before and I think it would be a great idea. It is sometimes hard to actually tell if people are male or female by their nick, so it would be useful to have.

Own custom ranks would be awesome. Many forums have that.

And also avatars bigger then 5 kb. It's almost impossible to find good avatars under 5 kb.

There was a rating system when I joined and I seem to remember that you could choose whether you wanted to be rated or not. I think it's a good idea for those, who like to be popular :p

The Gender thing would be wonderful, becasue people would make less mistakes when referring to a member...

And I would love a custom ranking system. Imagine all those titles people would get :D

I think the gender option is a great idea. It'd be a lot more convenient for trying to figure out who's a guy and who's a girl.

The ranking system is a bad idea, in my opinion. It seems cool at first thought, but it could lead to favoritism, or turn into a huge popularity contest. Not cool, I say.

But I would also like the allowance of a longer signature and the loosening up of the censorship. sometimes I can't post videos, becasue they would break the ToC

TWICE I have been mistaken for a female. TWICE! And that's twice too many times.

Yeah. There are some words that are censored here that are pretty mild. And sometimes they're even said in TR games!

I do admit myself that the censor system is a bit tight at times. I know this is an all age forum, but the sign up age is 13 years old and most 13 year olds can handle some swear words (not like really explicit or anything).

Gender thing would be nice, since a lot of people get frustrated when they're confused for their gender.

Rating- Rating people is just kind of dumb to me, a person isn't worth more or less.

Everybody who is 12+ hear swear words or swear. Everybody in school swear. I don't understand why people shouldn't be able to handle swear words. But also it would look good if some posted like this:

Today I saw a ****ing *****. I swear she ****ed herself in the door. **** man.

Tbh I think dissallowing us to upload avis ourselves because someone would upload something inappropriate is a bit stupid. I mean, I've been on forums a lot larger than this one that allow us to upload avs ourselves and no one ever uploads anything inappropriate. And if they do, just remove it.

Because no-one cared what others thought of them. I remember the poll being almost unanimous. I would still turn it off if it were to come back as a feature.

Yeah, you remember?

No, before I was here :p It was on infopop? Well, the vBulletin one isn't a 5 star thing. It's just like points. If someone wants to give you rep you get one point added to your forum reputation.

I'd happily support a gender identification system. :) Avatars really influnce my perception of a person, for example, if someone has a female in their avatar I'd mistake that person as a female (slap me, I know I deserve it :D)

gender stuff i agree, but the rating system will turn into a stupid and shallow popularity contest, with the people who don't like you, rating your post as ****, even if they are not!
now avatars with more than 5kb would be good, but with not a gigantic limit, or it will take much time to load all those stuff and will consume precious bandwidth...
this is my oppinion!

I'm all for gender indicators (I hate to always type he/she when referring to someone). Just for the record, I'm male.

Ranking and popularity, though, are not that good an idea. It'll just lead to people trying all different ways to increase their statistics. The members that are really important here, the ones who post good posts and think about what they say, however, cannot be identified by any such system.

Avatars: I wouldn't mind if I could host them on my own webspace (I have unlimited traffic, so it wouldn't be a problem for me. My host might get in trouble, but I don't really care). The current system for changing avatars is just ridiculous crap, leading to people asking all the time "How do I get an avatar?" and more work for everyone than necessary.
If it is possible, I would suggest that we can upload our own avatars, which then need approval by the powers that be before they replace our old ones (or become the first one). Size limits and time limits between changes could easily be enforced by the forum software.

Finally, a feature I've been dreaming about for a long time: Add custom BB-Code to mark up times and amounts of money, together with time zone and currency. To a certain degree, it might be possible to detect both automatically. Then the software could automatically convert them to the user's preference. AFAIK, no such mod exists for this (or any) forum software, but it would be extremely cool if it did.

1- not a problem for me but it can be for some people who don't like to say anything about them on web, so that would have to be optional

2- no bloody way, you wanna see everyone in this forum with 0/10? cuz I'm sure that's what would happen sooner or later, with all these get rid of/apreciation thread's wars

What I would like to see in this forum is new and more smilies (oh btw can someone pm me a link to on of those smilies sites that you just click and voila, please?)

the TRL and AoD font's usable when you type a post

a new way to get new ranks. like the ones you gain when you reach a certain amount of posts, but there could be new ones that you could get by doing some other things.... no idea on what those things could be thought.

Use the ranks you want: imagine this I have 2k posts wich means I have been an Hobbyist, a Student, an Historian, an Explorer and now I'm an Archaeologist. my idea is that you (I) could choose any of these titles cuz you (I) already got them..... plus I preffer Archaeologist over Professor :p

10-09-07, 21:02
My suggestions:

1 - Some new skins (we used to have a really awesome one on here that I can't remember :/)

2 - Bring back, if possible, the old smileys that were here before they were reset to the default ones.

3 - Gender Indications below Avatar.

Titanium
10-09-07, 21:02
More forum skins would be good, I miss the old ones we used to have, especially Midnight Blue and Orange Bliss.

Avatars - I would like it if we could upload our own avatars but then get them approved or something. I know I have had this avatar nearly all the time for almost two years. But I would probably change it a bit more if I know I could change it again easily if I wanted to.

Ranking System - Thats an awkward one. Most people say they dont care but some people may care if they get a bad rank.

Gender Indicators - That would be good. :)

And as Reggie said, the old smilies. :)

agree 100% plus knowing some forum hosters and supposing (almoust sure since I found everything almoust the same there that it is here) this one works just like them, that option is just at a distance of a click. the master admin of this forum (a.k.a. Tlr online) only as to click on an option that says "users can upload their own Avatars" that should be near the avatar options in the forum's admin's control panel.... but this is all speculation as even as much the forums can look like there will always be diferences.


As for the skin, I prefered the one that was up when I first joined (2005) but I don't wanna see old skins coming back, I would like to see new ones, don't mind the colour but it would be nice to have a poll about it. Plus there was an idea of getting a new skin when we reached 1,000,000 posts on gen chat so... START SPAMMING!

Talking about fonts, I'd prefer the completely opposite direction. First of all, I'd drop Comic Sans from the allowed list. It's just plain evil.

Then, I'd disallow some kinds of user names and avatars. Anything containing the words Lara, Croft, Tomb and Raider, for example, should be forbidden, just as any shot of Lara Croft, Kurtis Trent, or their respective heads. I just can't keep track of who is who that way and confuse them. For me, it's all just LoveTombLaraKurtisTrentCroftRaider24, and I feel that this doesn't do those people justice.

(Yes, I'm kidding here, but only slightly. And not about Comic Sans.)

In the list of far-fetched and unlikely suggestions, there has been some research recently into automatically generated icons. Based on some mathematics and some randomness, interesting and unique shapes can be easily created and can easily be distinguished by humans.

Gender icons would take care of the "boy or girl?" threads that pop up every once in a while... I think it would be kinda nice to be able to see it just by viewing someone's profile or whatever. :)

As far as the rating system... Been there, done that. I don't really think we need one. Most of you should know if you're well liked or not here. :p

jackali

Yes, and about the ones who have been here for some time, but are still uncertain? Not that I am one of them. I think that I know what people think of me. But still, there simply must be some.

Anyway, having read what people have said, I quite agree with the Gender information on the profile, or under the avatar. Not that I need it, I can do without. It would just be a little helpful sometimes.

New skin options, that would be refreshing! :jmp:

[ ] other (transsexual? Could be male and female icon combined.)

Have to agree with you there with the names, I have some problems recognizing people also.. O_o Of course you can't force people to have more original nicknames, but having one that doesn't contain these tombraiderfan1234567 could be kindly recommended.. Ah well, everyone's own business of course. :) Just more difficult to distinguish some people, as you said it doesn't do them justice.. :pi:

Yes to the gender icons. It gets confusing to tell who is what.

I'm not sure about a ranking system. It's not a popularity contest and there are always going to be people who abuse the system. But then if you don't want it don't use it. I'm undecided on it all.

HELL YES for a General Tomb Raider chat forum. We need a spot to talk about other Tomb Raider topics that don't get their own board like the comics and Gameboy/Mobile/TV games, or topics that cover multiple games like "Who's your favourite _" polls or theories like a possible connection between something in TR3 and something in AOD. There's always general chat but the topics get lost with the non-TR related posts. It would be good if we could have one board for everything on Tomb Raider that doesn't have its own forum.

I'm for a gender feature ! :tmb:

Are you :
[] male
[] female
[] other
[] not sure :p

Hmm more seriously, something like in the options in our profile (for choosing or not to display our date of birth), we could choose between hide our gender or show and specify between male or female.

For the ranking system, the problem is some people could abuse of it... The idea is nice and it could be set as optional in the profile but I'm not sure.

A General Tomb Raider chat forum would be great. :tmb:

And bigger signatures are not necessary IMO.

just croft
11-09-07, 13:14
maybe the gender option could be something you could write instead of putting a tick in a box is pre-determined options, cuz then people that don't wanna tell what their gender is they don't and anyone who wants to be alien can be alien ;)



Edit: ok guys, Eddie Haskell's survey's gave me an Idea, I'm gonna make a survey based on the opions already posted, to make everything more organized and clear. ;)

Actually,the forum,for me,is perfect,and,you'll excuse me,but most of the suggestions I see here do refer only irrelevant aspects.

A general TR forum?Why not?Once this isn't a forum dedicated to TR,I think that suggestions is highly sensible.

More fonts...yes,we still don't have enough and some personalities may feel suffocated,once the existing ones do not allow them to express themselves.

Yes,let's allow some members uploading nude Lara avatars.

Please,pay some attention: some members already changed rankings due to contests,like Baby Jane,aka Modding Princess.


Signatures with images,etc:these aren't aspects which,being applied,would enhance the forum. Some would be completely indifferent,the popularity stars would only bring more conflicts and a TRF General Chat on a Tomb Raider Forum is just one more excuse to spam.


And,let's be sincere: how much time do you need until you get a member's gender?!!

Titanium,you know perfectly you wouldn't :ton:!When we could change avatars each two weeks (let's not forget why we stopped having no limits to ask for an avatar change),you changed yours and one day after you desperately asked to get back your traditional one :D!

MiCkiZ88
11-09-07, 14:39
Voted. A huge no from me to images as signatures. It just looks untidy & makes the posts hard to read. And Avatars are fine as they are (128/128 px) Although the size could be a bit larger than 5kb. But I aint complaining.

OK the questions in the surveys are made based only on posted from this thread, since the part 3 would only have one question about Arcade games I decided to wait for more sugestions in this thread before makeing part 3.

Totally agree ! No offense, but it was possibly the worst suggestion here. People should be allowed to select any username they want (not swear words obviously).

11-09-07, 15:13
I like the gender idea and a more TR-ish skin for the forums are nice, but I think other suggestions are a bit too much - we all know why we can't have avatars bigger than 5kb, so why the complaining? And why stop the censoring? You really can't understand what is written when it's censored? :rolleyes: I find the picture and link sigs also very untidy, and it could be a problem to members with slower internet connections.
I find the forbidding certain usernames idea ridiculous. To avoid confusion you say? A sfar as I know, I'm the only active VonCroy here, and I can't remember ever seeing someone which username was based on Xian or Amanda. If you have trouble telling apart different people (the many "Lara's" for example), you can also remember them by their avatars.

As an explanation, there was a complaint, with which I agree actually, that a graphic depiction of an autopsy was not suitable for an all age section of the forum. Stupid? Well if you think trying to protect minors from such a graphic clip is stupid, then yes. Thats your opinion. Remember, not all here are of the same maturity as others, it may actually affect some people. Better to not take the risk. If you want to hunt for it on youtube - go for it. It is rated R afterall, is it not?

As far as your access to the mature forums - blame your parents. They are the ones who had you later :p

something telling gender would be helpful.
mild swear words should be permitted lik "ass", but words like the F word should be censored, trust me, it gets very annoying seeing that word every 5 seconds.

12-09-07, 09:03
Voted on Just Croft's survey. :wve:

I really agree with some of the suggestions so far, like larger avatars (in terms of kb). After all, we had 10kb avatars not so long ago, and even 15kb before that, if I'm not mistaken. The main reason the maximum size was reduced was in order to reduce the burden on the server. But now that we have got a new server, surely 10kb avatars could make a comeback?

Longer signatures would be nice too. I have never understood the reason for the limit on the characters :confused: - after all, text-only sigs make practically no difference in terms of bandwidth. Obviously, there has to be an upper limit, or people might started posting long essays as sigs ;), but other than that, the character limit makes no sense.

There are some suggestions that I am strongly against - especially the rating system, which I think is an extremely Bad Idea - and other suggestions which I don't really care about either way, like gender markers.

Can i make a suggestion? I have noticed since the the search feature has been re-enabled, a lot of old posts are being dredged up and posted in. Another forum i visit automatically locks threads that haven't been posted in for over a month with the message "no reply has been made in over 1 month and so this thread has been closed." that way people can still read old threads, but cant post in them. IF they want to continue the discussion they need to make a new thread.

Maybe that would be a good idea here?

There could be a sub-forum in Fan Artwork, Pictures, Movies and Writings where all these "artwork bins" etc. members' own galleries could be put.. :)

Maybe a specific place for competitions also? :D

Nice idea :tmb:

Now,clearly: I think the Art forum,having as function receiving members's artistic works,does not need a sub-forum in order to receive members's artistic works,whatever names those members give to their threads :).

Besides,the comps attract a lot of members to see other works;a sub-forum would make that more difficult.

Logical arguments, can't really debate with that.. :p *shrug*
That's how it'd indeed be, and after all the Art section doesn't have that many threads.. Ah well, it would have been neat.

I don't know about the art section. It sometimes looks a bit messy with all the competitions. Sometimes so much that your regular artwork thread can't fit in the first page. And no one looks to the second page (/sarcasm) :p

The second thing is that the Art Bin threads demand a lot of attention. Some threads hardly get a single view or post! Kinda understandable (considering some threads), but meh. I dunno. It does look clean now. But wait till the competition feaver hits & you want to post something else.

you got a point there... it seems that some threads are just ignored and *cough* you need to continuasly "revive" the thread so it perhaps can get some posts *cough*
the art bins are cool, but are getting too common...one or two it's ok, but it seems that every drawer here on TRF wants to have his/her bin...
good thing that the art section only can have ten stickies...

I think Justin would be the best one to answer that. :)

I thought about that too - but why is he not aswering PMs?

I only have one suggestion, i know the different themes have been gone for a while and to my knowledge i don't think theres a plan to bring them back.

Generally i stick to normal forum skins, saves tossing around to be honest, but this forum along with a couple of others has an unusually bright interface, anything in a darker format would be great, preferably black.

Cheers,
James.

Sorry if this was said but over all I if anything could be imroved would be a longer signature, its hard to cramp something good into a sig thats under 80 characters.

EDIT: just read othe rposts I feel stupid now....I wish we had the ability to delete our own posts.

You know, I second that. :)
Another thing I'd at least like to see: Smiles in our signatures.
And how 'bout we also add the thing at the bottom of the threads that shows who's watching in the same thread/section like on some other forums?

One skin per forum member
Professionals creating new and actual fonts and not those we use,decadent as they are
TRII should have its own sub-forum,for me to discuss Venice with myself
The Art forum should have a sub-forums regarding the different ways of drawing Lara
We should all be administrators
We should have the power to ban all those members whose nicknames aren't according to our taste
A general chat for each TR game
Justin should make 24hours radio sessions only with the songs I decide
Me ruling,obviously
All KTEBERS being banned,even more obviously
Did I mention the skins?

if you ask me I don't think the OC suits for most of the peopel here, most of the peopel who talk there are always the same, and they talk about something that they are familiarized with. I really don't think that the OC serves for certain topics in threads that get closed for being considered spam.

Yep, i agree with the male/female thingy. It would be really cool if everyone had a personal page, but no one else would be allowed to post things on their page. ( Then it would be too much like Bebo or myspace and infinitely more difficult to moderate.)

I'd just really like my own personal page to put up my fave pictures, videos, etc.
