Forum Ideas

Post by Rhino.Freak on March 25th 2013, 3:53 pm

i see its getting really inactive, we just come.. visit for a moment, and go (NOT EVERYONE).. I have some very fine ideas about how to add some new things to forum to make it look awesomer and more interesting..
Viz.

- Updating all ranks to something new, i mean only sprite ranks are pretty simple and .. boring. (sort of like buttons like these with a sprite pic of current ranks in them will look awesome)

- Adding some new features like New Chatbox, A toolbar, Friend Request Notification and stuff (I can help with that)

- Make some new profile fields like "Favorite/Best Character in Game" that will be a drop-down list, and stuff

- And there are many cool systems which can make forums better which I will tell to Admins when they like the idea of changing stuff

- Appointing some active admins to take care of new stuff (I suggest ACE, or maybe Axer?)

Just so you know, the chat box won't return.

Z, myself, and the other mods went with removing the chat box.

I think Storm you should consider his new chatbox idea. The forum needs something new to keep it going atm imo.

The forum needs more than just a new chat box to keep it going at this point.

These are some good ideas.
But the real problem is, that they would work for a growing or strong community. What we have here is maybe around 60-80 active visitors, out of who 40 post regularly, and 20 who do so outside of their respective countries.
There is no NTSD progress, and, let's face it, the idea of a LF2 mod isn't also as appealing as it was when NTSD first started. So from this point, the interest in the forum will be only dropping, as well as overall activity.
So the question is: is it worth it trying to improve the forum? It would only come in handy if you ever wanted to get some kind of web design job, then it could go towards CV... cause honestly, almost nobody here even wants a redesign.

As I see it, only way to help our little community here would be to completely separate off of NTSD and start anew as something else. But what could the whole forum agree on doing together? Half of us aren't even interested in Naruto anymore, so we can scratch the idea.
One thing that's unique about the forum and still keeps it going is its country system. Maybe we could think of something based on this?

let me tell you this :

users come, but don't post -> reason : no interest in posting.. -> reason : Not any kind of award or something that they get that makes them post more.. -> new ranks -> some people will start posting to acheive them
-> an awards profile field like "member of the month" or "best player" or "top supporter" will be awesome, we have SOTWs and even TOURNEYs , can't an awards feild be made where the badges can be placed by mods/admins?

Creating new profile fields is just a click away and super easy.. and so are installing toolbar and chatbox..

Trust me, NTSD team is still working hard.. if they see the new forum and support they are getting they will be happier and will appreciate our support.. Think about it..

Like I said, this is a solution for a growing forum, not a dying one. Most of the active people here have over a 1000 posts - how would you encourage THEM to start posting more?

It should be a nice beginning though. The offtopic section is getting posters from different countries. They can all mass chat with each other to begin with drawing more interest than the current scenario.
Besides that I'll mention again about bringing back the point system. Instead of waiting for more ideas I think first at least point system and the chat box must be brought back.

This forum has over 21000 registered accounts.
About 20000 of those disagree with your statement.

the reason behind it is they see NOTHING interesting about posting, and what I say is to make posting INTERESTING!

Ranks won't keep people on here Rhino. The majority of the people who actually join this forum now only care about the game. Tie that in with people in college and other personal matters and maybe I can understand your idea. A new forum won't keep people around either. Like Axer said, if this forum was brand new, then some of these ideas would have worked out well.

Please enlighten me on how posting can be interesting.

The question is this: Is any of this necessary or is just you wanting to make some changes to the site because you don't like the way it is now?
