Suggestion Box


Recommended Posts

This topic should be used for suggestions and criticism regarding this forum. This will make it better for the administrator to make changes where improvement is needed.

I suggest we give each point a number. When reacting to one of these items you should mention the number.

We could also use color: blue is a suggestion, red for criticism.

 

 

Example:

 

#1: I see the forum has a banner with the twelve stars of the EU. I suggest that we put the name of the region and/or some powerfull slogan.

 

#2: There is a calender at the top right corner of the screen but no one seems to be using it.

 

#3: I suggest we create a "Ministery of Culture" or "- Cultural Affairs". People who, for example, like RPG's can use this location for their pastime.

 

#4: As I have seen on other fora we could create a special subforum for ambassadors from other regions, in order to promote the interregional cooperation. We may not get much visiters in the beginning be I believe that they WILL come (because I am putting a lot of effort in interregional communication).

 

#5: I suggest changing the forumname "Parliament" into something else, like "United Nations", to make the subject more transparant.

I know, I already tried to change it to another logo, but that didn't really worked the way it should..

 

#2: There is a calender at the top right corner of the screen but no one seems to be using it.

Well, sometimes someone's birthday is mentioned at the bottom of the forum, but you can add other dates (like for example the founding date of your nation, etc..) to the calender too. I changed the settings a bit, so now we'll be able to see the "Forthcoming Calendar Events within the next 5 days"

 

 

#3: I suggest we create a "Ministery of Culture" or "- Cultural Affairs". People who, for example, like RPG's can use this location for their pastime.

There's a Role-Play department called "politics and incidents". What do you suggest? Rename it, or make an aditional department?

At this moment, all threads concerning alliances and alike are posted into the "Ministry of Foreign Affairs". Maybe we could add a sticky there, especially for for the visiting diplomats from other regions..

OK, did that.

these are not really suggestions or critism but more like ideas. but here goes.

need any help with this i could help. have ran invision, phpbb and sqls for a while and could even give you some script to stretch that logo where it fills the screen (not sure about u guys but it seems to stop short from making it all the way across on my screen).

i know for the time being we dont have a ton of RPers but to atract more we could dedicate a whole board/catagory to RPing. differnt boards for differnt aspects of RPing such as a war room (or whatever we call it) for military and political RP wars, a board used for store fronts, trading posts and more and maybe a general board for RP bar and grills, RP events, basicly general RP.

 

 

and finally, the ad banner annoys the sh*t outta me. i would voluteer to get rid of it. ads! grrrrr! wink.gif

Currently there are some talks with Allied States of EuroIslanders, Greece, The North Pacific, we're also considering an offer made by the Union.. But no treaties have been signed yet. If an alliance is ratified, then I'll happily put them in the WFB.

 

PS: I haven't found anything yet on changing the AM/PM into the 24h-clock, don't know if it's possible, but I'll look around. cool.gif

#8: It confusses me that we have a subforum for the 'ministery of defence' and a seperate forum for the 'Europa Army'. Is there any way we can rearrange this so it becomes clear what is general, limited and top secret? And can we incorporate the Ministery in it?

All boards are open to everyone, except the "Europa-Army"-department.

 

The Ministry of Defence is open to anyone, since it's a public board, it's a bit like a lobby... where people can ask for military support, public military announcements, recruits signing in.. that kind of stuff.

 

The "Europa-Army"-department isn't visible to the general public... it's easier if we want to discuss matters we don't want outsiders to hear. For example our plans to take over Nationstates.. oops said to much wink.gif

But aren't there a lot of posts in the Minstery that should not be open to visiters? I'd like you to make a selection and move, please? pinkelephant23.gif

 

I'm not trying to criticize your work. Improving this forum is very important and if someone on the regional messageboard says our forum is "boggling", I would like to see if there is anything we can do to improve and streamline our operation.

I thought about it during dinner and I came up with some rather good idea's for shaping the forum. Now I know I have been talking about that a lot, but it is my idea that since we are a growing region, we'd best make the necesary changes in advance of our continuing growth. That way our future members won't get too confused and it looks good as wel. I would like talk this over with the administrator *winks at Europa*. Please let me know if you have any means of IM'ing because that would be the fastest way to explain. Thank you.

I got rid of guest posting.. but maybe we could allow it on some boards, like technical, if newbies need any help registering... maybe also general, but i'm not sure. Altough the guest-posting hasn't been abused yet, it could be abused very easily.

 

PS it's only possible to switch off guest posting when you're the admin.

yuppers, admin option only. been a admin many many times, first gig was at www.gamesxposed.net and that was almost 8 years ago.

 

and totally agree with ya boss the general and technical would be great. abusing it shouldn't be an issue any time soon but it is a pain when you forget to login and lose a post.

 

lastly, i would like to have edit privileges to all the RP posts. i would never change anyones message but on some cases i would like to add a mod edit on their post in cases of godmoding, statistics or just helpful RP input. it would and could help/prevent any RP errors and keep the RP active therefor attracting more members.

done.. all moderators have now edit-abilities.

 

Do watch out though, 'cos the "Edit" and the "Quote"-button are next to eachother.

#9. I have some suggestions to make the 'Europa Army'-forum more transparant:

 

* Europa Headquartes >> rename "Top Secret"

 

* Intelligence >> rename "Officers"

 

* Warroom >> rename "Soldiers"

--- Officers lounge >> move to "Officers"
