Title says it all.

Solorien just created a poll to merge WTS and WTB. So, I want to give my suggestion. Hopefully, the new forum rank and the chat box can be implemented in the next forum update.

Let's see the community answer for this.

About the chatbox, I see a lot of cons, so I won't suggest it.


Chat box could cause an extreme amount of cyberbullying. I don't want it implanted.


I don't want it implemented either, for this reason and the fact that it would make moderating WAY harder than it is, and it's already hard enough. People complain about them not getting enough done (which I don't see how, they do tons), so why would you give them more work.

+1 on the new forum ranks, though, been on Master Sorcerer for years. :p

Forum rank please. Chat please. It'll lighten up the forum since most of the people aren't used to the new format. In addition, one can ask a quick question on the chat about what sub-forum his (future) thread belongs to. Might come in handy, ok.

To be honest, I chose the old forums in Solorien's poll. I just want the forums not to be so complicated. Don't wanna argue with this.

Well, the "chat" feature can be a menu in the forum. So, we can actually "interact" with other forumers without making spammy threads like "SUP FORUMERS" or "Hello guys! Wanna hangout?". To prevent spammy threads like that.

I'd love to have another rank! 1,000 to 2,000 to 3,000 and on and on..

And the chat box - good idea.

Then we get some moderators/staff and keep it family friendly. It's also somewhat a bridge between Mods and normal players. Some players (not me) think that mods are "evil" because they don't reply their PMs, well, that chatbox may be that bridge.

Let's all be honest. We all know having two different sub-sub forums which is very similar in concept is unnecessary. Plus, having two different threads for two different purposes is hard to maintain.

Adding a shoutbox needs a plugin
Adding a plugin adds more code to compile
Adding code to compile adds more time for loading
More time for loading = People getting pissed off because the site loads slow

Don't mention the additional database queries.

Adding a shoutbox/Chatbox WILL MAKE THE SITE LOAD SLOWER

So I'm against it.


+1 on new forum ranks.


(This site is already slow :p don't ask to make it slower)

15k posts - "The BOOMER"

25k posts - "Get"

50k posts - "A"

100k posts - "Life"

200k posts - permanently banned from the forums.


Lmao

New forum ranks will just give people more of a motive to post pointless replies to threads they don't care about just so they can get to new ranks :sweatdrop:

How about stopping to suggest stupid ideas? Why do we need more forum ranks? To show your awesomeness? No one cares

Chatbox? Watch it get spammed 24/7 by 10 years old kids who just joined the forums. We have the forums if you want to write, good enough.

A chat system would be awesome! Maybe if Seth won't add it for us, we could make our own!

it would be nice to have a new rank bc alot of us have been on forums for two years and hand the same ranks for a long time now

I think new ranks would be cool but, on the other hand with the chat I go with what Cloverlord and JackBowe said, it'd cause so much unneeded cyber bullying and that'd just make mods jobs a lot harder, also there would be so many spam bots and it'd make so much unneeded lag.

I like this idea!
1000 posts - Wizard
2000 posts - Legendary Wizard
3000 posts - Time bender
4000 posts - Elemental Prodigy (idk)
5000 posts - Senior Wizard
10000 posts - Overlord


Also, for the chat, players can be able to report users who spam, and an anti-spam thing may be implemented, like if someone sends more than 5 messages in 10 seconds, he will get stopped from chatting for a minute.

The site is very fast for me even on 3.5G.

it's slower than most sites I use

I use my phone (3.5G also) which is pretty fast for a normal user

The purpose of the forum ranking feature is to reward users' contributions to the discussion forum.

For the chatbox, I just realized it's not a good idea.

maybe you need to be a master sorcerer plus to be able to chat in the chat box? or 700+ posts something like that, if you are below 700 posts you could pm a mod to give you perms to the chat box? something like that? i personally think a chatbox would be and amazing idea, maybe it will be a bit crowded? but id live with it, i think the 500-700+ posts will also cut down on trolls and mass spammers

The Chatbox is a totally different thing, it can't be done. You can't just mess with vBullitens software.
