Favorite / Most Used Feature? Please vote!
« on: July 31, 2015, 06:03:10 PM »
With the upcoming forum upgrade, most of the current extra features on the forums will have to be deactivated temporarily, while they can be re-incorporated (if at all possible). For this, I need your feedback in defining a priority list for existing forum features, so that I can work in re-implementing them in a sensible order.

Please, note that this poll does not include new, upcoming features, nor does it guarantee that any of the features, existing or to-be, will come back after the upgrade. Security and integrity will be my top priorities during the process. I am trying to make the forums safe from spam again, and the fact that the forums use such an old version of SMF has a lot to do with the issue. Therefore, this is completely necessary. Nevertheless, I am sorry for any discomfort this may cause to the community.

Regards,
Jessica

I think the shop is woefully underused. Inflation is rampant, as a majority of the regulars have maxed out both their bank and pocket change. Unless there's a good way to make the shop actually contain something fun or meaningful (and also make currency a bit harder to obtain), it'd prolly be best to remove it.

I agree with legacyblade, the shop hasn't been used/updated since Quintessence was the trend of Freebird. I don't mind if you remove it but profile comments, chat, shoutbox and the media gallery I want to stay.

While I like the idea of the virtual shop, there is nothing interesting you can buy (the darts are interesting, but sold out), the interest rate in the bank is broken (everyone has max level). Also a functioning shop would would give an incentive to spam.
Even if you are nothing more than a drop in a bucket...
Every drop leaves ripples.

I think if you came up with some fun things to do with the coins, a way to combat spamming for coins (maybe only gaining coins from a post if it's been more than 15 miuntes), and priced these fun things relatively high, the shop could be awesome. But I feel that'd be far more work than its worth.

I brought a telephone that was supposed to have a secret message in it but it's been broken for a while.

Not everyone. I'm not a spammer like Lance :P

You are a spammer like Lance once was, but that's not the point - max level is Tier 7, so you do have it.

Spoiler: show
Thus you can stop spamming already.




As for the poll, shoutbox of course. Not only my favourite and most use function. In fact, it's the only function we need. The forum could do without forums, but the lack of a shoutbox would be unacceptable.

For the shoutbox, I don't want Arwym remove it. Same reason with Kyo (but a bit different). The forums will kinda quiet if the shoutbox is removed. But still, everyone want shoutbox not disappear from forum. 

As for the chat, i didn't have any objection if Arwym wanted to remove it. The forum already had shoutbox as chatting place.

For the media gallery, I don't mind if the media gallery removed, and as the fanart/video move to Creative Showcase, but I'm enjoying searching any fanart/video at there, because the media gallery looks portable and I can see any fanart/video at below freebird homepage.

I agree. The SuperShigi forums seemed very quiet before I requested a Shoutbox to be put in (and it still seems quiet :reivsweat: ). However I don't want you to remove the media gallery. Believe it or not, this is the only place I can find Quintessence fanart and fanfiction. :needshat!:

I really like the media gallery (but for some reason I have to go offline to view it), I do use the bank for getting my credits down to 1000. I like the profile comments, although I don't get a comment on my profile that often. The shout box is always nice thing on Freebird. The chatroom is something I don't use very often, but I probably would like to.
PoisonRabbit is dead, the EgotisticalRaven ate it.

Same. I've mentioned this once before, but no one believed me.

That's strange, it works for me. I wish I knew why it doesn't for you :(

But I do know the reason why it doesn't work for both of us (and for some other members, I suspect, like Thunderbird). However, we're not the ones who could do anything about it.

Yeah. Well hopefully this 'upgrade' will change that.

Guys, I will do my best to keep as much as I can, but like I said, there is no guarantee. Security come first. Anyway, what is it that you think makes some members unable to see the gallery when in session?
