Simple but useful improvements to GTX0 (Dooku, Cetasaurus)
Posted: Posted July 29th

This is a list of simple changes I'd like to make to GTX0. I
might do did one major thing tonight, but can't do a lot because I promised myself I'd make progress on NIFE.
Private Messaging. While I'd like to make a Chat feature, the site needs a better PM system first. In this new one, messages will be stored, it'll be easier to see your messages / message new people various ways, and messages will be more like posts in how big they are. They'll probably also migrate away from the Alerts section into their own tab.
MyCons. This introduces Medals and Badges. Medals are icons that moderators and special groups (NIFE Hosts for example) can assign for various things, or can be awarded to a user by the Site itself. Badges meanwhile are icons that users can create and other users can then apply to themselves, for example political leanings, video games they like, etc. MyCons can be part of a user's MyCard and/or they can display a row of them below it. A user's profile will also show all their MyCons.
Help. I'd like to exhaustively comb over the site and document all the features GTX0 has, but not necessarily how to use them or anything. Then I'll organize them and create a page and assign some editors to help me work on it. This overall "help feature" should cover everything and stay up to date, as I will integrate it closely with the site.
Newpost/Newreply. The way these currently work are garbage. I'm either going to migrate over to a special Quirks format (since Quirks' newpost script works flawlessly and looks nice) or make something new and build onto it over time.
New ban system. Might be Warden, might just be a v0 of it.
New complaints system re:dooku
Post archival system re:dooku
Fix GTX0's homepage, probably through the same exact crowdsourced system that the help files are on.
Migrate stickies into documents as needed, remove "moderated by: " where moderators aren't there, other minor tweaks.
Fix primary username / account username so that whole thing makes more sense and is hidden unless grandfathered in.
Kill redundant or confusing links, prune worthless features
Set up a Welcome Team.
