Evan: Possible new forum for the boards?

Postby Khan the Warlord » Mon Aug 19, 2002 7:29 am

Sounds like a good idea--how about this one? :)

So... Besides the suggestion box idea, got any site issues, forum questions/comments, and/or the like? ;)

Actually, yes I do. :)

1. When a member joins, there are two categories in their profile (under preferences), that are defaulted to non-typical forum settings.

A. "Always notify me of replies": This was defaulted to yes, which can certainly waste your bandwidth with unnecessary emails and can also spam a member's Inbox quite easily.

B. "Always attach my signature": While this setting is quite harmless, I really don't see what good it does, as most members will probably overlook the fact that its currently disabled and will PM you, wondering why their signatures aren't working.

2. About forum style, colors, and the like: While I really like the actual menu and board colors, the glaring white background is just... well, glaring (and doesn't exhibit a very Green Ronin-esque feel, IMO). Perhaps some black/green to replace the white?

Just a couple of thoughts... all in all, I really love the forums and the work you do on the main site. :)

Forum look & feel

Postby SassyRonin » Wed Aug 21, 2002 10:28 am

Thanks for the suggestions, Khan!

re: 2. This is the default template set that ships with phpBB2. I'm working on a custom template for the forums with a darker and cooler look & feel. I will eventually also do a version of this current template set that matches the rest of the site more. (Then I might update the rest of the site to match the superclean look of these boards...)

re: 1. I'll fiddle with the settings and/or the php code to implement those suggestions--they could be something I didn't notice when I was setting up the boards. Thanks!
