yeah! please please please please please please
Avatars, reputation points, more smilies - these VB boards are capable of so much more!
Was already discussed though I guess it was "last year"
but got no reply from the big man himself
yep; i used to have a site. and at least more smileys and avatars are definitely possible; and not THAT hard. Let me know if I can help. BTW; what is the system this site is using; Joomla?
Silence speaks volumes....
Arn, do you think you could pick select users (like mods, or big contributors like wastedtheyou) to have special avatars? That way we could easiy recognize them as people to trust.
on the other fourm i use, the mods names are a different color font, its really easy to pick them out. And everyone had avatars
Yes, something like that. I don't think Avatars help that much, and nobody really pays them much attention.
though it would give us a good laugh. it would be nice; after all we were nice all last year.
but nobody will leave ta or die if we dont get avatars
I know arn's reading these threads, but probably just doesn't want to get into it yet.
Come on arn - lets hear some of your feedback!
Well I am looking for someone to come online; but so far I dont think arn has come online. He is busy with MacWorld. The person who posted the latest article in the frontpage was Blake.
P.S: Just checked:
Yes, we also need custom titles. I want to be known as "Legendary Member" not just "Senior Member". What is this, high school?
Ahhhh.... high school... those were the days....
Then I should be Prom King as I was in HS
Sure you were . I believe ya . You make the most useless interesting threads...
hmm.... wonder what i should be? i know; the computer geek.
Believe me, if avatar were allowed most people would be remembered more by their avatar then their names. Images (for me at least) are more easily identifiable then names.
I assume it is a server load issue. Adding avatars increases the bandwidth used, slows down the boards, and most likely makes the site cost more to run.
The same can't be said for editable titles under your name. They just need to enable them in admin mode. It's really easy too, but I'm sure the admin has a reason for not using them.
Right now, as it is, some people may spam just to get to 100 posts on this site. Then, after that, what's the point of spamming? You just get more post numbers, but you're still only a senior member. If we had even more ranks, people would just continue to spam until they reach whatever uber high level they want. I think it's nice right now that junior members or members may just post some useless stuff to get up to a senior member, but once they're there they can just post their opinions and stuff and not have to worry about increasing their rank.
I'm not saying everyone spams, and I would love more ranks, but that's one of the views that could keep arn from adding more ranks. It probably keeps sites tidier and keeps some of the spam out.
