Site Suggestions

Okay guys, now is the time to tell the staff what you like, what you don't like, what needs improvement, how fluid the interface is. We want to here your opinions, after all, the site is yours.

A few notes I want to make while I'm started on the topic, as Logan mentioned, no trolls allowed, all the mods are going to be breaking in hell's walls to ensure that people are behaving, that's not to say that we're your babysitters, you can swear (to an extent, keep on topic), post what you want, (direct torrent links are not allowed, use NSFW tags). That's to say, you shouldnt ever have to deal with the mods if you're using common sense, I'm not here to sit any go through all your posts, I'm here as a contact to make sure you people don't have issues.

That being said, if you have any issues with the site, use the bug topic, or if your problem is more personal, contact a mod.

Enjoy the site, posts suggestions below.

A few things going on:

No Servers at the monent, I plan on changing that soon. (Minecraft is up intermittently)

In my opinion the light theme needs some work to help things be more distinguished.  It, to me, just looks like a wall of white.

That and being able to use common commands such as paste would be nice.

Really? I think that makes it looks cleaner.

I woould like a weekly podcast with Cain and Logan with maybe Littleviking or a guest each week. Podcasts are a great way to promote. Just a suggestion. Keep the videos coming. New content all the time is what keeps people coming back all day long. Also congrats on the new site all. Looks impressive.

I would like to see the ability to customize the layout of our profiles, and also etting to view the site, like if we wanted the theme to be darker, we can have it darker, or lighter. I liked the all black theme of razetheworld. I found it easier on the eyes

Hmm is the dark theme not dark enough?  There's a switch at the top-right side of the website that says "dark | light" for you to toggle between dark background and white background.  

As far as customizing the layout of profiles...I doubt it'll happen, we want to keep user profiles standard so it's easy to find information on specs and such.  You can change your header, though...

Is there any way to change the username? I can't change the 1234qwer username you gave me Nate :P

posted 2 years 1 week ago

 123qwer, we can change the name for you. What user name would you like?

posted 2 years 1 week ago

Hi LittleViking, I'd prefer the forum name 'Maverick'. Thanks

posted 2 years 1 week ago

 Did you try logging in with your old RTW account?  Should be the same username and password.  We can't change your name to Maverick without deleting the account associated with that name first...

posted 2 years 1 week ago

The RTW forum allows you to change your displayed username, this forum doesn't give that option

I don't like the font used in the titles when viewing a thread. It's okay in the header, but a little too much in the titles.

At the very least, adjust down the size a little.

 

Also, would be awesome if my name could be changed to "SnikendeUgle" :)

(for those wondering, it's just a nick I use here and there, parody of "crouching tiger, hidden dragon's translation in norwegian; "Snikende Tiger, skjult drage", whereas "snikende" = Crouching (sneaky) and Ugle = owl.

 I tend to agree with you. I don't love the font we are using in the titles... and it is actually different than the header font... the logo is using "orbitron" and the titles are "electrolize"... I prefer DIN fonts and Helvetica fonts (the german DIN fonts beat Helvetica, sorry hipsters)... Anyway, I changed the font on the video page to a free DIN font... not sure if I like it... let me know what you think... or make some suggestions:

Definetly looking better, but again, a bit big (or it could be the white glow around it that confuses my eyes) ^_^

 You may now change your usernames by editing your profile. We are only going to allow changes for a short time. It will get ridiculous and confusing if everyone continually changes their name. If anyone wants to change their name, do it now before we grow.

le changed, thanks

posted 2 years 1 week ago

 I can't remember if I've already said this... needs a post count & join date next to profile pic. That way we can identify new users.

posted 2 years 1 week ago

Changed name now. Excellent.

Also throwing this suggestion in:

enable forum signatures (no pictures) (max 2 lines or so)

EDIT: doublepost, and I can't seem to be able to delete posts.

 

And:

Will there be a Tek syndicate chat / IRC?

 

EDIT 2:

Also, update the Google+ page. : )

Changing the color of links by default would be nice. Or underlining them would work well too. All the text is black so you have to go hovering over the words to see which one is the link.

EDIT: This is only a problem when using the light skin. On dark its fine.

What's up with img tags?  I tried to do a tinypic link using img tags and the site wouldn't take them.  It just made it a hyperlink instead.  I had to use the insert/edit image option-->link-->then back to image info.  It was ass backwards.

Is there a way to make the dark theme my default? Mine seems to revert back to light upon each visit. Thanks and the site looks great.

posted 2 years 1 week ago

only thing i can sugest is pick a background that is less 'busy'

posted 2 years 1 week ago

edit: i double posted... and i cant find a way to delete a mesage. maybe a posible delete button?

posted 2 years 6 days ago

 hmm how about finding away to limit submitions on a page per visit to 1 so that there are no double posts?

Suggestion:

Move all the share buttons in the first post of a thread to somewhere else. Ruins all layout in the post

what about guests on the Tek Like on linus audio only guests...

posted 7 months 5 days ago

I've only skimmed the posts here, sorry if i've duplicated.

suggestions:

[img][/img] tags

-top buttons seen on main forum page across all subforums (view forums/ mystuff/ active forum/unanswered topics/new & updated topics buttons)

-seach functionality on the actual site (not using advanced google search, actually have a search functionality on the site i can type stuff into.)

-adding/removing sub forums, or creating parent forums for general topics:

ex: there's currently a "metal" forum. why not have a music forum, that would lead to a section of sub forums for multiple genres. (or even just remove metal in place of music idk)

-personally, I'd prefer a tinymce box at the bottom to each forum/ sub forum where i can post. I find the "post" button at the top quite unintuitive.

-messaging system that doesnt just send emails. I'd like to see the site have it's own inbox system I'd check.

-default size of reply box increased in vertical size.

-------------------

not complaining just suggestions guys. website's great as it is, not trying to start a war with the suggestion of the removal of the metal forum lmao.

Image tags like that aren't compatible with the coding style used on this website.

This website isnt some MyBB forum like you see in other places. This one was hand made from scratch, and uses html codes instead.

Someone really needs some reading lessons in class. Thread was dead as good...

Locking thread for shitty justice.

 

EDIT: We already got another thread for this: https://teksyndicate.com/forum/intheworks/suggestions-tek-syndicates-sit...
