Features you would like to see on the forum?

Just what the title says. I have a few in mind, and I have a few that I absolutely don't want (changing font size..... :shudders:), but if anyone's got suggestions I want to hear them!

Re: Features you would like to see on the forum?

Possibly a spoiler tag that auto-whites the selected text, so those of us who use color tags a great deal (mainly speaking for myself, here) don't have to fiddle with tag nesting?

Code:

Function:
[color=red]Spoiler alert: [spoiler]Red is blue and blue is red.[/spoiler] Told ya.[/color]

As it stands, spoilers are handled like so:

Code:

[color=red]Spoiler alert: [/color][color=white]Red is blue and blue is red.[/color][color=red] Told ya.[/color]

Also, totally agreeing with do-not-want on font size. I've been on forums where that gets abused horribly. Usually by trolls or people who think they're the most important individuals on the web.

All I really want is a button.  When I click the button, IRG tells me I am beautiful and smart and also good at jokes.


Oh, and also permanent links to various places we like to play together off the forum: IRG on Facebook, our Steam Group, the chatroom, (the information needed to join the IRG Minecraft server) etc.

Not to mention everyone else who periodically asks whether IRG has spoiler tags.  It would be nice to be able to say "yes" instead of "sort of, but you have to learn some BBCode."  Good idea.

You can have me pretending to be Jeremy Irons. school-devil

Which would sound about as much like Jeremy Irons as Jeremy Irons would sound like me if he tried to imitate me, but it would be unique!

Dude, a spoiler tag button would be legit, and would help the n00bs integrate much faster.

That actually seems kind of cool! Like, not even joking. It's nice to have a pick-me-up. If it could cycle through some things, too, to keep it fresh.

Also, just to nudge, I do do voice acting professionally, and wouldn't mind doing this. emot-biggrin

Dude, you didn't read the masturbation/hardcore pornography thread, or see the extra button in the post screen? If not, well, we are now mp3 capable, just host an mp3 somewhere and use the mp3 button on the post screen to make it go. All you have to do is paste the address of the mp3 after the '=' when you hit the button.

Oh yeah, and before anyone (no one) notices, I made it so that links open in a new tab.

Just sayin'.

That's something I've wanted for a while, sooooo...

Re: Features you would like to see on the forum?

Just realized something that a few of us could use, especially for doing the truth-telling cough (you know the one) text-wise.

Strikethrough tags! Either the full word or just {s}{/s}. Doesn't matter. I know I'd use this on occasion, and it would give me the chance to remove it from the "dead tag" list.

Re: Features you would like to see on the forum?

Spoiler blocks would be a nice feature. So if you have a lengthy digression, you can just put it in the sblock and it won't show up unless you click on it. It would reduce clutter.

Re: Features you would like to see on the forum?

Strikethroughs are definitely coming. Definitely.

Spoilers I will have to find code for-- I didn't think of them when I did my first sort through the lists. I'm pretty sure I can do them though.

It's really funny, I was going to ask for the ability to post gifs (because this is a nasty habit I have acquired) and I saw in another thread that it can basically be done. Sooo....

I will try to keep my gifs under control everyone.

You Tube tags.

In another forum I frequent, you can embed videos using code like this: [YOUTUBE]gjhReq19Sq4[/YOUTUBE]

Where the gjhReq19Sq4 is the part of the video in the actual link.

It's helpful. emot-smile

I'm really sorry, I like the idea too, but Gio is vetoing on the grounds that he doesn't need any more help being creepy. Although a Mikage one would also fit....

Ohhh.  I always wondered how all those minor characters decided to go visit Mikage.  Now I understand!  It was the promotional flyers.

I was going to say, if we actually need this kind of emote, maybe it shouldn't be something that we all interpret differently!  But then I remembered that this is a SKU forum.

Re: Features you would like to see on the forum?

Could we have some message management tools?

Like, the Inbox counter only seems to go up, I can't delete things that I've read, and I'm afraid that something will explode when it hits 100%.  And the notification for new messages.  Either I'm incredibly dense, or it doesn't reset easily.  And not at all manually.

Granted, we're facing a hosting switch, so... this can wait.  I get that.  But... maybe do something before the thing that's going to explode explodes?  When things are straightened out a bit? emot-frown

Re: Features you would like to see on the forum?

You should be able to delete messages from inside the message itself, at the bottom right hand corner of the message, where the "quote" thing is, and the new message notification should automatically go off when you open your new message. Either way, nothing will asplode when you hit the limit, so don't worry about that. It just bitches about too many messages.

If that delete thing isn't there and you haven't overlooked a pm, let me know and I will want to take a look at your account. The system is a bit cumbersome, but usually it works okay... emot-frown
