PostSubject: List of minor suggestions that'll go a long way!   Sat Aug 21, 2010 5:03 pm

Here's some suggestions I think we kinda need:

-Change the 'Preview' and 'Send' buttons when you make a post. Just make the words black because at present, they're grey and it's on a white background. You can barley make them out. :/
-Rid the censorship. I think everyone here can handle words like f*ck. sh|t and cr@p. Plus Belgiums would be offended.
-While it's not really necessary, the 'New Topic', 'Reply' and 'Quote' buttons seem messy and are overlapping.

These are just the ones I think we need. Post yours and I'll record them.

Agreed.

What browser are you using? For me on Firefox, the buttons are fine.

Well this is how I see it:


I'm on Google Chrome.

That is to the how the image looks, it's not Chrome issue. To fix it, someone will need to make new button images. But I have to say that I like it this way, so I hope there can be multiple skins just like on the second forums.

Agree with the first two points, but i'm fine with the buttons the way they are.

I agree with the top two points. I can handle "bad" language, and the send and preview buttons are really hard on the eyes. Also, the preview and send buttons on the post reply/thread page should be swapped. I mean, most forums have send on the left, and preview on the right. This is the opposite.

I could do new buttons, but I think they'll serve us well when we start getting more backgrounds. If they don't i can change them, but right now I can't.

Censorship isn't necessary, you're right, but some people just don't like it. Even if we can all handle it, I think it just makes us look a little classier. The use of "Belgium" is a refrence to Douglas Adams, and, since we're making a game about astronomical things, I thought it was appropriate.

The "preview and send" problem isn't easily fixed, because their text took up the default text color, which is light gray. I may be able to change the backgrounds, however. Again, I won't be able to fix this easily right now.

the forum is good but i thing its a bit too complex or disorganized. i mean there are so many sections in the forum( Gameplay , Outreach and blabla. ) and every section has many topics. in thing that topics should be inside forum so in order to access the gameplays section topics you have to press the game play section .

also how you post a new thread

also how you post a new thread
It's all up front because you can post in any forum, there are no "categories", just head forums and sub-forums. That's why the main page is not reduced to head forums- the forum config does not allow it.
To post a new thread, click the "new" button at the bottom of a forum.

I think it's best that we keep the censor on, now that I think of it. I have... whadayacallit... a "potty mouth". In other words, I talk like a sailor. I also write like a sailor.
