    I've always been a fan of having very few subforums. I think we could do with combining most of ours, since this is a small place and we don't really have to worry about flooding. Combining serious chat into normal chat, combining the adventures together, combining media, and combining the forum nuts and bolts together so we just have 4 sounds perfect to me

    I think its set-up the way it is for better organization.
    Personally I like it.
    But that might just be me.

    It's really quite cool but my wishlist includes customizable spoiler boxes and a built in avatar rotation system.

    I think that because this is vBullitin (unless i'm mistaken) avatar rotation is impossible. You could just always make your avatar into a really slow moving gif like ressertact did?

    One thing that i would like to see (but understand if it's hard to implement) are forum-unique smilies

    okay really the only one that i care about a lot is Drinkie Pie. [​IMG]

    well yeah but the idea is I want to have it randomly select one of my many dancing hamster gifs.

    Vbulletin. Same as MSPAF, but ours is a newer version :)

    The fact that our spoiler box is even the way it is took some figuring out and for different ones we'd have to create new buttons for each, and to be honest as a not programmer, I'm focusing on the basic right now (like getting that spoiler button into the quick reply). From the searches I've done, there is no way for each user to write their own unless we make our own mod/hack that can do that. And uh, I'm an art student.
    So yeah.
    No idea how to do that.

    As for the random avatars, a bit of research shows me that mods have been made for vbulletin to support such an option (although none officially by vbulletin) but the verdict seems to be that they're pretty unstable and allowing all users the option could crash the forums. I don't know the science behind it, this is just what the internet tells me.

    Actually new smilies are supposed to be pretty easy to put in, and in fact vbulletin has full sections of their own forums dedicated to custom smilies. I will look further into it this week and let you know how it goes.

    Oh thank god I don't have to learn to do that.

    Yeah new smilies are easy mode. We need TOO MANY SMILIES!

    But yeah the forum is fantastic. Great work guys. I just feel like I should have found a way to help, but what's done is done.

    This forum is currently too much like Esrever's wet dream.

    (I.E. quotes don't go deeper than the current person you're quoting)

    There are still plenty of ways to help with fixing bugs, finding cool mods, designing things, bringing in flesh blood for the sacrifice... We need all the help we can get!

    I hate learning though. That's why I took up art :p

    It's every MSPA fans wet dream: It's an MSPA fora with no NaS. OoOo burn!
    I'm just kidding, I promise :)
