How to make this forum better

Post  Naughty Gingerbread Ninja on Mon Jan 19, 2009 9:05 pm

If you have any suggestions on how to make this forum better, or sections you'd like to see, post here.

If it's in the wrong place someone move it. Oh wait, I'm a moderator, I can do that...

I had another idea. If we want this forum to replace the other one, would it be cool to have Bug Reports and Feature suggestions?

And for Bug reports, it would be a requirement for people to post their garden link so Mike can help them.

That's a good idea, but I'm wondering if I should hold off on adding them until we know Mike is checking this forum out. I wouldn't want people to post bugs here and not get them fixed if he's not looking here.

Hi team, what about an "add fairy friends sticky" - that's another common one?

I think that would be great. I think we can put a new topic on the discussion board, for one. Then advertise in our own gardens, tell our friends, that sort of thing.

Then we can get Mike to put it on the fan page... anyone hear from mike?

I have an art contest idea - a pretty headline for the forum. I can donate some diamond dust for a prize )) It surely will bring new fairies here cat
In the end, we can create a poll with all works, and fairies will vote. Wow, I'm getting carried away Very Happy

Can we even change the headline, huh? Smile

That's a GREAT idea, Noir! I'm sure there are plenty of talented fairies out there who would be willing to use some of their talent to make a great headline... wow!

I'd spare a DD too.

Sure thing! Especially if we're gonna have the competition Smile
People can discuss their works, and other fairy-art-related issues, like films and music. That's a whole fairy-culture section )) Surprised

Fairy culture sounds great! ^__^ I always wanted to talk about the type of music NGNF likes, but didn't want to clog up the other DB with chatter.

A new thought Exclamation (I'm like a fountain today, really) Smile
I suggest to make "read here first" section to a whole "newbie area", with all the basic information. A new name needed of course. It is quite empty now, and many fairies may ignore it completely.
It can contain the FAQ (which doesn't really belong to General Garden Info - it has many info about alchemy and herbalism as well). A newbie can read all there is to know about everything in one place, which is really handy. As for the Garden section - Almanach has all the info about gardening, and can replace the FAQ pretty well.
Another suggestion for the "newbie area" - a team of Fairyland Specialists! Smile Any user can PM them, if he can't manage on his own, and they also can answer endless "harvesting" questions in this section. I think it can help to keep every thread in order. Specialists (or Advisers, or Fairy Gurus, as you wish) can have their own status under pics (like Marmaduke the Herbalism King lol! ) so the newbie could know who has the precious info Smile

I'm done cat

Is it possible to make the avatars a bit smaller? Not much, I like seeing them properly... Now the space needed for the post isn't defined by the length of the text but by the size of the avatar.

definitely as bad as all caps Twisted Evil

personal preference would be for smaller avatars but, as we've got search and posts since last visit, the rest is gravy Smile

Lol Marmaduke, it's very loud indeed!

I love the big avatars (usually they're so tiny you need a magnifying glass to see them) but the threads will end up unnecessarily long if everyone only writes short messages. Of course there's no problem if we quote a lot and write long posts. :flower:flower-metaphors-02

Oh and Zinnia, you're so right, big avatars aren't really a problem considering that we now have a proper forum! cheers

Don't rush to implement them all anyways - rest assured the next posters will want something different.

What we do all know is you *can't* please all the people (or even all fairies) all of the time.

You are the admin so you get to decide Smile Our input is exactly that - just for your consideration. I'm sure you can develop a small committee of your moderators perhaps over time to help with the big decisions Smile

And once again - great job Laura et al.

What Zinnia said!

I love the big avatars myself. People said they couldnt' see my pic on facebook, just something small, brown, and angry. Now Chewie is displayed to his full glory!
