Title: Offers about forum improvement?
Post by: iL on November 26, 2014, 04:26:05 PM
Maybe you think this forum need something to be better?

Should we add some functionality or change configuration?
To add some more languages to International Discussion?

I think the language forums are useless since everyone can speak english. There are probably like 3 french players, 4 germans or something and do they really need their own forum? We have a small enough community as it is.

Maybe you right, we can remove some forums later if they will be empty.

Maybe there are some more active regional forums to redirect any language section there same as for russian part?

Yeah, they probably won't end up being used very much, but they're not hurting anything just being there for now.

I also enabled Quick Reply for current & future members, because, quick reply! Can still be disabled on a per user basis.

French or others languages should be welcome, only if more players can come on war2 & registers here.
Some frenchies were glad to see it but the war2 community is simply too "hard" for them :p

Do you have contact with them? You can invite them here, you will be able to play between frenchies at least and keep your own subculture :)
Russians did.

When people were talking about problems with Warcraft Occult Forums, the 2 most common complaints were:

1) New members could not register

2) We need an updated forum where we can post youtube videos




Having the ability to be able to post Warcraft 2 videos especially is very important i think.

Well, i actually have some plans about chat... for far future, not any one, and not now.

So, what we have offered but not done yet:
Well in that case, you should add spanish.
Maybe add a newbies section where guys just starting off can challenge each other
Strategy section is important too..

You guys cant even get peoples here, my clan member forums have more member then here, spamming the whole channel and the whole game all day long not gonna make them sign here.

You guys have to be closer of people and talk directly to them for make them sign up here.

How the fuck you want to get people in these section if you cant even get people in the forum.

People are lazy, if you dont talk directly to them they are not gonna sign up, you have to push them and they will.

You guys understand nothing.

Robot staffs.

One thing I would like to see is when new posts are made they are more easy to see, like on the Occult forums they have the color orange next to the new posts that are unread, when I open a thread here that says "New" posts sure I could scroll all the way down to the bottom, but theres also the chance that there could have been multiple replys before that. So having it show you which posts are the new ones since the thread was last visited would be nice.
Title: Re: Offers about forum improvement?
Post by: GaNzTheLegend on November 29, 2014, 12:18:36 PM
A feed of the last 10 posts or something would be cool.

You guys have both right, this forum need more colors, look like to much the old one, look dead, thats not attractive, aslo a better banner should be greater. When you try to sell something, 85% of the sellin is due by the desing, you not gonna sell nothing like this... Put more colors, it's look like neant.

A feed of the most popular thread can be great.

So new posts are also highlighted inside the thread? I never noticed that before, and I tried just now on the old forum but couldn't make it work.

A feed of the last 10 posts or something would be cool.

Did this, it's at the bottom with the forum stats. Thoughts?
