Topic: Site Improvement Ideas
Hi there everyone!
I searched for the right topic to post my suggestions and site improvement ideas, but found nothing and decided to start a new thread (if there's already one on the forum, let me know).
So, let's start!
Here's a list of all of those improvement ideas & suggestions that came to my mind:
Modern Site Design:Maybe it takes you time, and maybe some of the members are familiar with the current theme; but it will be better if the forum changes it design to something more modern and flat-like. There are a lot of gradients on the site which are old. Nowadays, most of the web designers use flat buttons, flat tabs and there's no sign of gradient at all.
If you've used CSS for the forum, I can help (if you want ).
Even if you are not planning to change the current forum theme, you can just change the main page.
Besides, it will be better if the site goes full-width.
Deleting Posts/Replies:I'm still confused either if it's related to the forum platfrom or it's a policy, but why aren't we allowed to delete a post or a reply? Sometimes, users suddenly post twice or in a conversation, they ask a question or say something, but later they regret and they won't be able to delete it! The only way is to edit the post and ask moderators to delete it. I know it will cause a lot of problems when people are allowed to delete their posts, but it could be avoided by putting a limit on it; for example, "Delete" option will be available for only 5 minutes after posting or until someone else replies.
Super Old/Inappropriate Threads:Just like the previous idea, I'm not sure if it's a problem or a policy, but why moderators (or other people who take a hand in the forum ) don't delete inappropriate or super old threads? The other day, @Slothpaladin asked me not to reply old threads and he said he'll delete the replies to sink the old threads. Hmm, if these topics are going to sink in deep, why are they still there? Why not delete them? There are a lot of pages in the forum with inactive topics and they seem that no one is going to answer them.
I saw an inappropriate topic and reported it, but why it was there? We have too many active Moderators/Site programmers here such as rioforce, slothpaladin, Smeagol, ... who visit the forum almost everyday. We can clear the forum from these kind of topics by helping each other, albate if we're able to delete threads.
[vid] BBcode:When I was going to post a video in a topic, it came to my mind that maybe, I'll be able to use a BBcode to embed my video in my reply, so, I searched the web and found a list of BBcodes available and fortunately, there was something called [vid] and it was used to embed videos! Then, I came to BiM and sadlys found out we don't support it! It will be excellent if dear Site programmers make it available, because it is a very handy tool specially for us!
