PostSubject: Major forum updates   June 3rd 2010, 2:01 am

Hello guys!

This week (and possibly next week) the Forums will be updated with more features. With the upcoming updates, I hope to make this site much more user-friendly and hopefully provide users with some interactive & fun activities/apps.

Over the next few days, you may notice some minor changes to the site. I'll be experimenting with different themes that will hopefully make our forums more appealing to members but make it simple enough so that it wouldn't cause too much of an eyesore. While testing out themes, I may have to put the forums "Under Construction" so that it won't give too much away or bother members with the site having funky color changes everytime they reload the page. If this does happen, you will recieve a pop up error stating that the forums are Under Construction and will not be accessible at that time (be sure to check back every once in awhile in case it comes back up).

Some hints as to what to expect:
- New forum categories
- New Theme(s)
- Apps./Activites
- "Arcade"
- Much more!

I will also be sorting out some minor bugs/glitches that have been pointed out. Suggestions from the "General suggestions" thread will also be added. If you have any more suggestions, post away! I'll try my best to add them =).

Hmmm. I don't have too much to add other than whats already been said but here are some other things that could be improved/added (a little on the unnecessary side though):
log on tracker (Not a cookie but some kind of easily accessible button on the forums that displays that we are online in a page on the clan forums when the button is activated for each individual player. This way people will be able press a button before you log on and know who's online before you get in the game if you feel like talking to some one in game or getting on only to CW)
Individual calendar (calender in your profile for each player of when they usually get on to more easily plan when you get on and makes it easier to tell when we should have clan events and when you will most likely meet a particular clan member online)
Combat Score (manually imputed from player settings by each forum member)
Favorite Equipment (similar to the gear section in our CA profile except players add to the forum what equipment they usually use in player profile settings instead of what they used last like what is displayed on the CA site and there is the option to add a second weapon to all the slots in case you occasionally use a different weapon)
Favorite Maps (same as Favorite Equipment except with your top 5 maps)
Combat Tactic (forum member can write what kind of player they are (like rusher or camper ect) in player profile)

I know a lot of these things are going to be a pain to do or might not even be possible to code (or worth implementing) but I'm just throwing the ideas out.

I like Favorite Equipment/Maps/Combat Tactics, but the rest are a little unnecessary. I don't think it would be too hard to change around some of the fields in profiles, would it?

The Combat Score/Equipment/Maps/Tactics sound possible. I could easily add the profile fields, but I'd have to find out how to have the combat score automcatically updated to the profiles because most people probably don't pay attention to it.

I'm not sure if the Log-on tracker or Individual Calendar would be possible. I could try and see if I could get something similar to an Individual Calendar on here, but I'm not 100% sure if it would work. Any ideas on how I could get these to work would be great though. I don't know a thing about html lol.

Hmmm... This stuff kind of looks interesting. How would you program stuff for the forum btw? I know a bit of java and wouldn't mind looking at how this type of stuff is done (More like how things are programmed not the PhpBB stuff since that kind of stuff looks fairly manageable).

It isn't too hard. Since these forums are free, everything is pretty straight-forward.
It's all based on html pretty much, with CSS/BBcode.

If I'm not mistaken this forum is based on PHP, which is similar to HTML.
