Title: Forum Modifications Proposal
Post by: s0lidmetal on May 14, 2005, 10:27:30 am
Steve, If you are listening...

OK this is a video game forum, so why do we have STARS to show our posting experience, wouldn't it make everyone here alot more comfortable to have an EXP Bar? The stars are nice but an EXP Bar would be cool. With or without the stars.

Experience Bar MOD: http://mods.simplemachines.org/index.php?mod=34

While discussing some games or movies, it's hard to say much without giving alot of stuff away. I know people can just a;ert the reader of spoilers but what about pictures? If only there was some way to hide content to those who choose not to view it...

Spoiler Alert BBCode MOD: http://mods.simplemachines.org/index.php?mod=50

~

I thought these were cool novelty MODs that would help improve and personify the forums to make it more than just Default, like alot of other forums. Anyone else have any ideas for mods that could improve these forums?


Oh yeah I know there is supposed to be a spell check function when you post but I can't find it anywhere?

Haha, an EXP bar, that's genius! Does the EXP bar mod have level ups and stuff? Oh, wait, I can just go and look.

Looks like it has levels, but the spelling (gnellips) on the thing was a bit questionable.

Of course I read this! Hum, the Exp Bar is an interesting idea. I will look into that one.

The spoiler alert code I want to add. The one that BBCode makes I really don't like, it works sort of wonky. My friend wrote some excellent code for spoiler code, I just need to remember to get it from him and put it in. But I'll try to do that shortly.

As for the spell-checker, yeah, I need to do that too. That I know is a lot more complex as I need to install some 3rd party programs, but I will do that to.

Anything else my liege?

I thought spell check was included with the forums though?  It has it listed as a feature here: http://www.simplemachines.org/smf/features.php for version 1.0 of these forums.  Thanks for considerating these though. ;D
