Suggestions/Changes for the TK Forum

Alright, first off;


Nothing here is promised.



So - yeah. As the title says, what features and/or changes, would you like to see to the forums. This is merely for curiosity's sake, but it also gauges interest for the future if any changes/mods/add-on's can be considered.

Oh - almost forgot.

No whine thread.


I've been hearing people mention;

No search time limit (Flood lock)
Less dumb search engine
View user posts via unspecified button
Custom rank
Blacklist topic
Games Forum

No search time limit (Flood lock)

I do get this - but the flood lock exists as a spam filter.

Less dumb search engine

Advanced Search! Sure its a pain, but its there. Still - I get the complaint on this one.
<To many omitted words>
...

Custom rank

Will not be added. As I have my own custom rank - I don't feel a need to make one for E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E.

I am the special snowflake.

...

I'm down for this. Nothing wrong with it - I kinda miss it.

Blacklist topic

Yes!

Games Forum

*inhales*
...
*exhales*

in reality, it could be done-soonish. As long as it doesn't turn into "Spam the sub-forum" - again - i'm not against it...

-Automerging posts is bane to posting fiction. Please have it disabled by default instead of enabled.

There is an option to not have it auto merge :P I know the feels though - I believe it can be disabled via sub-forums, not for sure, though I might look into it and revert it for the FF sub forum.

This is one issue I have with the mobile app, but please, please take "Mark Forums Read" and swap its position with "New posts". Tired of accidentally clicking that when I'm trying to view "Your Posts". Using the Battra skin by the way.

Other than that, all I really would need is the "Blacklist Thread" option back.

And can we have the "who viewed your thread" feature back?

I think that's something that can be changed/edited with themes, not 100% but I remember reading into something similar. I think someone else brought up the option of customizing the layout using a specific theme. That's more back end stuff.

I can feel yah though, I accidentally hit "Mark Forums as Read" instead of hitting "Board Index". D: Tabs FTW though.

^ Yes.

I vaguely remember that. Kinda stalker-ish though, don't you think. :P

Oh, man. Just thought of something. Kinda gimmicky, but it's better than hearing "FIX THE SEARCH FUNCTION" for the umpteenth time, right?

I'd like to have the option to put the TK watermark at the bottom of my avatar, like how the default ones look. Would look good with a couple of kaiju avatars I have and saves me some Photoshop time. :P

I like to see who my audience is.

*checks "Christmas Purge 2016"*

I've been trying to explore middle ground between warnings and a verbal and in some cases, people just need to grow thicker skin or just to get up and take a break from the thread along with everything else in between. Most I handle case by case and normally after a post or two, they tend to work themselves out.

S-t-a-l-k-e-r... :P

Seems legit though.

You know - I remember Vega did a template for that but I think it got nuked. You might be able to salvage it in the Wayback machine. Though a few hypothetical situations pop up where the watermark over said image could cause a few problems.

Letting people disable images/Youtube videos in signatures would be pretty sweet.

Can something be done about people's signatures again? Because even those with quotes in their signatures are obnoxiously massive.

No way. Images on mobile are already a bit of a problem, lets not make it worse.

There needs to be image and line limits on signatures, like one image and five lines of text.

What I don't get is why there is a need for signatures in the first place? What does that do? I know many of you have YouTube channels but aside from that why?

Some people things sigs are cool. I'm probably going to get rid of mine soon. And no, not because of your post.

It's just some added flair to personalize your posts. Same reason for avatars, really.

A hell of a lot better than adding...

- *username*

...to the end of every one of your posts.
