Hello, Parapeople!

It's been almost two years since we started this forum (september 14th being our birthday) so I've been going over the original "guidelines" threads in the forums. I also added a Fan-Based forum as was long ago requested by someone.

So, if you have any similiar requests or suggestions for the forum you want to toss out there, we're all ears! You guys have made this forum an incredibly fun place, so we want to know what you think. It might not happen right away, but there's no harm in throwing around some thoughts.

requested by someone.

Et tu, Brute? Et tu?

I request descriptions for all the forums, or not at all. Things must match!

What about a thread archive? A place to put old threads on a read only basis. Like let's say years later a gamer wants to do a sequel, but needs to reread through a thread to get a feel for an old character.
Likewise it would keep the main boards uncluttered with dead threads.

Also what about invisible mode.

Caesar Krys, done! Bam! Take that, my neurotic friend!

Thunder, thank you for throwing in! I will have to do some admin prowling to see if invisible is even an option available to us... And currently none of the forums are more than 50 threads full. I'm not sure how much we need before we have clutter, but an archive is definitely an idea to consider.

I remember now that someone also suggested a forum for completed threads or a way of somehow marking them as finished. That might be something we could do too.

You're not subtle, Brutus. But yes, I did. Stained-Glass will eventually be marked as Finished when Silent and I finish up our "alternate ending". But Bleu and I have completed a couple of small threads...so....>.>

But if I move them then they won't be with all of the other threads you guys have going.. Maybe we can figure out some sort of awesome stamp thingy... /brainstorming

ps. I'll be your Brutus anyday, Krys.

Brutus, I have an information thread that has the links to them. I just update that and we're golden ^-^

Cool stamp and/or pinning them, is also a neat idea.

It's a minor, aesthetic thing, but would it be possible to increase the edit window to be longer than a minute before the timestamp shows at the bottom of the post? I almost always end up wanting to make formatting changes or other minor alterations to a post, but I have to war with myself if those changes are worth dealing with the jarring stamp mocking me for the rest of eternity.

Like this, below. Can we increase it to like 5 minutes?

speaking of little things, y'all need a black coffee symbol. the present coffee icon looks laden with cream, and tomato soup.

Pride- done! It should now have a 5 minute window before there's an edit stamp. I like the little suggestions. haha They're easier to do.

Oh man, TS... the emoticons. Have you seen how many insane emoticons we have going? And yet, I am totally going to go look in the bin of emoticons to see if there's a black coffee lying around.

Minor thing, but because I always forget...

Would it be possible to have "sent" pms automatically saved, too?

I think we could use a "I Joined...Now What" thread in the same section as the rules.  We've had some people pop into the forum, but the fact that many of us know each other, and already have projects rolling might be daunting to any new folks without an idea of how to get started.

A wonderful suggestion, Beau!

And Krys, I'll look into the pm settings.

Could we maybe get more fonts, or at least a couple that are cursive? Or a list to fonts that work on this forum?

i'd like to note that if fonts not listed do work (apparently they do), if the other person doesn't have that font on their computer, it won't show up as intended. i learned this from messing around with fonts on the site that must not be named~

btw that font is awful.
