Xhin is listening.

Hey guys, this is an open post because recent changes nonwithstanding, GTX0 is still a site built around the needs of its community.

Here are some things that will probably be suggested:

* More communication between the content team and general staff / userbase when making sweeping changes

* Custom quicklinks for each user, as suggested by Dooku. Tnu also wanted the old format back, which is a plugin now and will get bundled into this feature.

* New people obviously

Additionally, PN pointed out that he made a feature request a while back that I didn't fulfill due to technical problems. Over the last year, I've found solutions to far far worse problems with my work on NIFE *cough*equipment*cough*, so there shouldn't be anything I can't fulfill at this point. However my memory is pretty bad and my GTX0 notes are pretty scattered, so a lot of things have been forgotten.

So, please also let me know which features you'd like to see, even if they seem wildly impractical or even if you've requested them before and they were turned down or not implemented for whatever reason.

One of my most requested features was always the 'badge' system. I don't really even remember the original design for it, but in my head it was a forum-based achievement system where we could earn or be assigned 'badges' for doing certain things. You'd also have 'global' badges for visiting X number of forums / post and reply counts / thread views / etc. And it would tie into the existing mycard system by allowing you to display 4/8/16 badges depending on your card (think the cards that allow your profile picture and 4 smaller pictures for example, but replace the smaller pictures with 'badges' the user assigns).

Each forum's moderator could set up and issue their own badges to members. This would also tie into things like Mafia or Adventure, where you could get a special 'Mafia Game 17 Winner' badge or a 'Found the secret alien hive' badge in Adventure.

My biggest concern would be shitty low quality badges making the whole thing kind of dumb, but maybe that's where we get someone like mariomguy to design them consistently.

Also user profiles. Even something basic that we can get to by just clicking on a mycard. It's a little ridiculous that we still get threads saying 'please add your Nintendo switch contact info to this document'. Everyone should be able to set that info up in their contact page and have it aggregate in a VGND document.

Also on the subject of customization, our current emoticon system is really kinda blegh. Gtx0 already lets us link to images on other sites, why not let us set up custom emoticons via image links?

I noticed that filters that involve some special characters don't work.

Edit: Wait, nevermind. I guess it works now. It didn't the last time I tried.

I'm bothered that everything dooku has asked for has been requested in some shape or form since the start of this site and have yet to be implemented and or just straight up denied because they werent in the spirit of the original GT.

I still want to start a Gtx0 book club, have a chat feature and bimonthly movie nights. But some of that falls more on the community than anything else.

I know we can upload images, but hasn't that created issues in the past? Also isn't that option basically 'global' for everyone? I'm talking more about custom sets per account. But I'd also say this is the least important idea by far.

Posted April 24th by Count Dooku

Ooh custom sets per account sounds pretty awesome.

Actually everything here is a good idea and should be pretty easy to do once I unbury myself from other obligations.

Also chat feature has been planned for a while. Will implement soon.

  • Basic text editing functions, like standard/forum rich text support (bold, italicize, underline, sizing, color, font)
  • Full forum search/catalog
  • People stalker counter
  • Room humidifier

    Don't we have this already with the Filter feature? What's missing?

    People counter

    Also what's missing here? We've got the people tab, the "people here" feature and even the "thread views" feature.

    Demote Null. That's a good start and then maybe I'll actually come back and stay back.

    Where is the filter feature?

    But no counter to show how many people are actively browsing the site. I think GT has more browsers than posters, so having a counter that shows that could encourage people to engage. A small number next to the people icon should do the trick.

    As Mariom's reply points out, it is kind of out of the way. (But the filter feature makes perfect sense where it is in newest posts/replies).

    I do think it's beneficial to have some kind of page or search feature to allow people to more easily find the ones that aren't on quicklinks.

    I want the features the mods had a few years back; I think it was mostly Moonray because he had that "bomb" feature. I'll get to spam Moonray and Dooku. Muahahaha. :P

    This. I tried starting it but readers lost interest. It'd be nice to discuss current favorites, least favorites, where ya at, etc in one thread.

    Also, what Dooku suggested in the beginning of this thread. Plz. Plz. Plz.

    What do we have to do to get the drunjk forum back?

    I don't know if you're serious. But -

    Why is it more desirable to post while drunk in the drunk forum rather than the general forum?

    Posted April 27th by Vandy

    bring "CLassic mode" in as soon as possible.

    We should have a forum called "Everything."

    Posted April 30th by mariomguy

    We do. It's called Newest Replies.
