Thanks again for runnin the board j.

I was curious about a couple things:

Do you think you can implement some kind of posting system that gives people cool titles and stuff when they have a certain amount of posts? It's not the biggest thing in the world, but I like that kind of feature. As opposed to just the one or two labels (steel or gold steel addict) you could have more ranks than that based on either steeler players (though I think stillernation did that) or something else.

Just a suggestion.

I thought maybe we could have a thread where we discuss suggestions or features and things that people might want the board to have. So I started this thread.

I don't think there's a thread like that but I'm half asleep right now.

I have a website with forums and what not. We're using Nuke Evolution instead of
phpBB. We have an arcade, music player...all kinds of wacky stuff. I'm not saying we need any of that here (I really don't think it's necessary) but since that kind of stuff is out there I just thought I'd mention it.

Not sure what my point with that is other than to point out that there's all kinds of stuff out there and I think it'd be cool to have this thread for suggestions and what not.

Thanks again.

Great suggestion. A stickied thread that would have this title, accessible to members with suggestions. What do you think, J?

I'd like to suggest that the bad word filter be modified since legit words (assist, associate, etc) are being changed to "bad word" instead.

Personally I would enjoy having the "who's online" section of the MB at the top of the page if that is at all possible. It is a lil bit of a pain to scroll to the bottom to see who's online atm. Is that possible?

$$$ I thought of that too. I often look there first-- it is a great convienence. ANd here I thought I was the only lazy one. :D

Also - I like the "levels" based on post count. I would go with something football related, but instead of players names have things like:

Undrafted Free Agent, Practice Squad, Second Team, First String, All Star, ..... all the way to Hall of Fame. SOmething like that.

So where does Sean Mahan's "level" exist? He isn't any of those. He would need his own distinction I feel, and it should be reserved for Steeler bashers...and no not trolls, but the Steeler "fans" like that nutsack guy who do nothing but bash everything about his team. Good?

Hi all,

Thanks for the suggestions...

I will add the "post categories", but I'll have to research how to setup something like that first. It shouldn't be too difficult. I'm thinking:

0-50 Posts: Undrafted FA
51-100 Posts: Rookie
101-250: Second Stringer
251-500: Starter
501-1000: Pro Bowler
1001-2500: Hall of Famer
2500+: Legend

...

Let me know what you guys think about these. I know its not very imaginative but I wanted to keep it football related.

Thanks.

I like the black background, I feel that it is easier on the eyes then the white. Not sure how the gray would look but if I had a choice it would be to stay with the black.

You know what they say "Once you go black, you never go back". :lol: :lol:

Great work J.

Guys as for the bad word filter I think it's all or nothing. I could be wrong but
I think it's similar to the Trib filter...php filter? I would imagine J could
turn it off...but that presents issues with viewing at work.

I wonder if J could turn it off and let each individual control his own naughty
word settings. Just a thought.

I'm not sure how easy it is to get the who's online at the top...but I would like
to see our General topic section right above the Steelers. As the site grows
and the season draws near we will need to keep off topic threads in the general
section. It makes it easier to get your Steeler fix without wading through non Steeler
threads.

eniparadoxgma
05-20-2008, 09:19 PM
One setting I'm curious about is the one that highlights the threads you haven't read yet. On most boards, when you go to a forum, even if you don't view all the new threads, the next time you come back they will no longer be highlighted.

However, on this one it looks like they're going to stay highlighted forever unless I actually click on them. I much prefer the former way, as (gasp) there are some threads I don't have much interest in. :) That way I can see the *new* threads I haven't viewed yet or have new posts in 'em.

I am proud to announce the following:

1) Created a How To for disabling signatures, avatars, etc
2) Consolidated the "How To" threads. We now have one How To thread and will add to this thread as needed. Currently, we have instructions on how to utilize some of the Planet Steelers message board features such as posting videos, disabling signatures, etc.
3) Increase the quote limit from 3 to 5
4) Move the General Discussion board to top for "visibility purposes"

Ok,two of my suggestions were taken into account.Now,what about getting Jessica Alba into my bed tonight??? :lol: :lol:

Do you really want her after I am finished with her??? OK. I will send her over, but she will be worn out dude.

I doubt that she'd be worn out form something smaller than a thumbtack. :lol:[/quote:2cb8vck1]

Does anyone have any suggestions for the Planet Steelers community as a whole? For example, not just enhancements to the message board, but the overall site.

Currently, we have a very cool photo gallery, mock draft database, and links sections.

Do you all have any recommendations? Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Maybe this maybe off base, but with the recent interest in the upcoming "gaming" season, maybe you should have a separate section for the contests that we're proposing. I have a feeling with all the Madden interest you'll be bombarded with gaming enthusiasts and this way the flow of discussion on the main Steeler MB can still function without OT gaming discussions. My two yen.

How about merchandise sales.... Couldn't we get a hook up with a vendor that could give us a cheaper rate on collective orders by the board, on say game jerseys... Just a thought.

Maybe a place for favorite bars, restaurants or Steeler establishments in different cities or where some go on game day to watch the games. That way if anyone is interested in meeting some of the members they would know where to go and get drunk, I mean, where they could go to meet them.

I don't think the board currently has any way to show when/if a post has been edited. While it's not a big deal atm, it might be good to turn on a feature like that later on, especially during contests/pick 'ems/etc.

My personal preference is when you set edits to only show up after five minutes after the initial post is made. Regardless, I just thought I'd throw that out there.

Thanks again for hosting/running such a sweet site, J.

I don't know the technical word for it, but when you click on a link, can you make it so that a new window pops up to that link instead of redirecting the page we are on?

Also, a question. When I get to a new page, I usually experience a pretty long delay where the page freezes. Is that a problem with my RAM, or a problem with the board? I have sometimes had that happen on other sites, but never as bad.

I know this board is capable of installing / displaying new smileys such as animated gifs. For example, a smiley waving a terrible towel.

We could even have a week long contest for the best smileys. Aftwards, I can install them to the phpBB to allow users to display them in there posts.... Just an idea.

They don't have to be created. They can be taken from other sites and installed. I admin on a sports board (that gets zero traffic, which is why I rarely visit anymore) and that's how we did it. We have hundreds of smilies taken from other sites. It's simple!

That's the emoticon I was referencing in another thread. It's become difficult to concentrate on the posts I'm writing because my eyes are constantly drawn to the left as I type.

Would there be any way to set up the smilies so only a certain number of them are visible and for the rest there is a link above the smilies reading something to the effect of "click here for more smilies" or something like that? What it does is then open another, smaller window containing all the smilies. I don't know how you do it with this software since I've never had the keys to the store on this type. I know how to do it on this type: http://www.invisionpower.com/community/board/ though. It involves making the smilies "clickable". Smilies that are "clickable" will automatically appear to the left of the reply box. The rest are only available by clicking on the "click here for more smilies" link.

Gives the board a much cleaner look, imo.
