Scheduled forum changes

Postby Flash » Mon Aug 03, 2009 12:15 pm

These are the plans for the forum over the next few days...

Auto pruning the "Spam Forum" - Done
The Spam Forum will be set to auto pruning. Any topics dumped into the "Spam Forum" will be automatically be deleted after 1 month by the forum software.

New Moderators
No new Moderators are needed for the moment. Inactive Moderators will set to a "Retired" status until them become active again. This makes it easier for everyone to know who are the active Moderators.
A few Moderators will be selected to actively recommend new members to become Moderators to ensure that there is a healthy active number of Moderators on the forums at all times.

Forums Too Generalised - Experimental layout for the moment
Most of the forum areas are too generalised ie. "Gaming, Music & Entertainment", "Anime & Manga Discussions" & "Japan Discussion". They don't invoke any discussions because the topic is too broad.
Instead, more specific forum sections will be created ie. "Anime Episodes" with subforums like "Bleach; Naruto; One Piece".
This will invoke healthy discussions by limiting the topic material. General topics that don't these forums can still be posted in "General Chit Chat".

Deleting Old Users - Done
The website may have 7000 users but most of them are inactive...
Users who haven't visited the website in over 1 Year will be deleted from the board to give a more accurate number of current members.

Re-skin
The forum will be visually updated. Something that is more in keeping with Anime/Manga style. Something that is easier to use/read.

Adding Fun to the Forum!
New modifications and new smilies shall be be added to the forum to make it more fun. People like to spend there time so I want to make it as enjoyable as possible :)
I won't be going overboard like other forums with adding arcade's or anything like that, just little touches that I hope you will appreciate (like the reputation points).


Well, those are my thoughts for the moment... I shall update this post when I have had more time to think about it. It would also be interesting to hear your comments!

I've still got a long way to go. Next is the forum skin & making sure all the forum modifications work correctly.

The "retired" thing for the Mods is probably wise :3

Yep, it all looks good! ^-^ Thanks, Flash.

A header, banner thingey at the top would be rather nice. Pale green with a random anime character on it.. or a different character on every page. Im going to go off into a bubble now. 0_o (I used to own a graphics site, just a little nostalgia coming through.) But sounds good. Rep points, sweetness.

Welcome back. I'm sure we'll get it sorted, I'm still available for general spam watch and admin duties, I haven't let the power go to my head.

More fun is always good, as well as the deleting old users. It's a shame we can't retain more regular users though, we need to give them something to keep coming back for.
