It's been quite a while since anything's been posted here(a solid two months 0_0)! Something that would really make my day(it's a pun) would be some sort of a chorological posting log! With this, it'd show the posts posted by day, even if you've already seen it. I'm suggesting this because there's quite a few things I want to respond to today, but it's a bit hard to track it all down. Heck, it doesn't even have to span back far, as long as there's something that says "View all posts posted today", I'd be fine. Of course, if it would span back even further, I certainly wouldn't object :)
I've done this on the news thread, But i Want to Get more Detailed. So, I'm putting a possible requirement thing, and there's 4 Ranks. Pellet-Capsule-E-tank-Yashichi. Pellet Requirements: Be a good person overall and try to Help a lot of people? Capsule Requirement: Help In A Really Great way, Possibly Contribute Sprites... Tank Requirement: Get Good enough to be Like a MBM Or a Mikey (And i mean Specifically Those 2), and help out in A NUMBER of great ways. Yashichi: Only Adrian has this, and It's almost Impossible to get, Unless you start coding in a useful way?
Experience: I was thinking about an Experience Bar thing for it. You gain exp for doing good things. Pellet you need 500 EXP, Capsule you Need 2,000 EXP, Tank is 5,000, and Yashichi As mentioned, basically nearly Impossible... IDK.
@MetaKirbSter : Like I said in chat, it's possible but you're making too many tiers without any basis. The requirements posted are very vague, and the experience bar is basically making a game out of it. The ranking system is made to recognize those who have contributed/have been chosen to contribute to MMRPG more so than the average member, not to act as an out-of-game achievement system.
Depending on how Adrian opens positions up, more and more recognition is definitely an option, but not currently imo.
I feel like this idea has been bounced around before, but I'll repeat it in this thread just to let the record show it: Can there be something implemented in the forum so that you don't have to actually view the threads to get rid of the "new post" notifications?
Couple of possible ways to do this: 1.) You could have the old-fashioned "Mark Forums Read" instead of navigating to each individual category. 2.) A while back, MBM suggested some sort of subscription mechanic where you'll only be notified of updates in threads you've subscribed to (and brand-new threads as well). Harder to implement, but gives the user more control over his/her forum experience.
I'd really like it if there was a setting in your profile to not show deleted posts in a community thread, while I do understand the reasoning behind it for its use to show a hole in the conversation, if you're just casually reading a thread they break the flow of the conversation and only serve to be empty space.
Suggestion: (if it is already addressed, sorry. Just came back.) - Please include stat boost caps in the web database display for each playable RM. That way, players will be aware of their "training progress."
I'd love it if you could "note" threads, it's a bit of a weird concept but stick with me, here. Overall, there's been plenty of times that I've completely forgotten about a thread, even if I have an obligation to it, and as such I've completely forgotten to post whatever I need to do. See, since new posts can only be read once, I've had times where I looked through a thread, went "hey I should do that later", but since the new posts don't show up afterwards and I don't have the time at the moment I read it, I end up with the aforementioned situation. It'd be a small visual edit that could show up next to "Check New Posts", maybe labeled "Checked Noted Threads", and clicking it will take you to any threads that you've noted. However, since I'm clearly taking this into an Administrator perspective of "I need to check what I need to check and I can't afford to forget", I do understand that if it's entirely different for regular users and I'm not sure if it'd be useful for everyone.
Or, you know, you can also offer the counterpoint that an user shouldn't forget about it in the first place, that too.
