Forum Suggested Improvements / Enhancements

Recommended Posts

Social links at the top aren't linked to anything. Might want to link them or perhaps hide with CSS...?
 

I don't know what the links under the user's sidebar profile are for (Twitter/YT/Steam/Twitch/etc.) The grey ones to the left of the Quote/Go to top links.

Is there any way to build in better support for external images since we have limits to local storage? I don't know if this BB has things like plugins, but to be able to add an image to an image sharing site (imgur, etc), directly within the forum, instead of pasting in the external URL, would be lovely.

Cheers for the voodoo that you do so well.

Thanks for pointing this out Shucks, I'll find some time over the next few days to clear that up and make them work again. I think our last upgrade, wiped them.

Just thought I'd let you guys know, it's been a long time since I last took a proper look around the forum, and its definitely come a long way! It's looking clean and organised, you've done a real nice job!

Cheers bud, it's come along way and we're still getting there but it's really all down to everyone that keeps coming here and contributing. If that keeps going and new people keep on popping in becoming new regulars, then we'll be all good. Good to have you back around buddy👍

Two things:

 

One is that there are far too many smileys / emojis / whatever. It takes fucking ages to load a million slightly different picture of a caravan, see if you can trim them down. 

 

And when I'm not logged in I can see who's responded to posts, but as soon as I log in, I can only see how many, but not who they are. I'll fuck around with the skins a bit as I suspect it may be a user setting but I wanted to see if this is the same for anyone else as well in the mean time. I'll see if I can figure it out at some point, but I worked until 2am last night so I'm getting a fucktonne of sleep in today.

I don't but this is really good to know Space, thanks for heads up. Please keep me informed on how much it happens 👍 I'll investigate it tonight when I can get on my PC.

I'll look into it, I just do what Brede does mostly though 😎😂

Forgot one thing. Does the BB offer a way to put a notification badge in the browser tab?

I'd love to, notifications via browser would solve a lot of our issues whilst we have to wait on a far superior App. I'd need some technical support on it as its currently beyond my capabilities.

Seems a widget is also causing issues. Just got this on mobile while clicking on the GT Sports Time Trials thread.

I was wondering if we could curate a collection of free and open source games that we could make available on here or at least signpost to the sites where they are available to download.  Stuff like Chromium B.S.U & FreeDoom which I have played and can tell you they're good and addictive.  It could be fun?  Also, did anyone ever suggest a chatbox in the past?

We had a shoutbox earlier. Good riddance I say. 

There is a capability which we could purchase that allows a user to upload and download files - we've never had a need but this could be explored if there was more interest. We also would have to consider the cost. I'd love to get this place recognised more for the sake of all the wonderful people here, just have to balance things up.

 

Shoutbox came here before my time and was found to discourage posts and threads on here so it got shelved. People do you use WhatsApp and Discord (we have a FG discord channel, whatsapp doesn't work the same) to "chat" and that will happen regardless of this place. The era of instant notifications and quick messaging is how many want to operate. I'll embrace whatever we all want to use as long as people don't forget that the central home of FG is the website as there's more here (posts, info, videos, quizzes, events, widgets that much more, etc) than all other platforms we're on.

 

Like with most things, there's usually a cost and time investment involved but these shouldn't be blockers if we want things. We can make it happen if a lot want it.
