Suggestions/future updates
« on: June 04, 2016, 05:45:08 PM »
What do you want to see happen here, on the forum, maybe to the site as a whole? How do you want to proceed?

At the moment I'm treating the forum as it is right now as a temporary measure, a template that's going to be changed over time to reflect the "fresh start" we've got on our hands. Primarily it'll be a cosmetic thing, might be something more, I haven't given it too much thought.

tl;dr, make suggestions for future features and future developments of the site/forum, even if you feel they're menial. At this point I'm open to anything.

Oh, and let me know if the shoutbox is visible to you. I just set it up and I haven't been able to find a permissions list so I'm not sure if I'm the only one who can see it.

Would it be possible to set up our own distribution/trade network?  Maybe something Vaga would know about since he runs one, you could work together on it.

Keep in mind that I don't know how shit works so if this is a really stupid idea please be gentle.

I suggest that we cap membership at 10 people and then anyone else will have to kill one of us originals to be as kvlt as the primary dark gods of illuminating grimness.

And anyone who posts on any other board than black or doom should be banned without notice or explanation.

Orcus and Shady should be allowed the death metal boards.

In all seriousness I also think there should be some standards for band specific threads, like they have to include links and some degree of explanation so we don't get a bunch of "I like band, discuss" threads like MT used to get.  That way what we end up with is more of our own archive of bands/artists rather than a graveyard of dead conversations.

The op should be useful on its own is what I'm trying to get at.

I don't expect any less from the community, but just in case we ever get big enough for noobs to stumble on this place by themselves.

Yeah, to be fair even in the old days that's how we operated. The music discussion was always closer to how it was on old MT, but with the shitposting too. I have faith it'll develop back along those lines.

I'm willing to cap members at 10 provided we can round up the core of the OSN again (Carg, yellow, asta, levi, anti, and that one weird romanian guy). We already have me and mjolnir, i think that's all the founding members with the exception of rick (LOLOLOLOLOL).

As to the suggestion of a distribution/trade network... that was an idea i had in mind at the beginning of this whole revival thing, but i wanna see where the site is gonna go first before we go any further with that.

I propose we get to the ten member cap and then kill them all.

Fuck me, I can't figure out the hyperlink thingy. I mean, I'm sure it's not a big deal but it kinda gets on my nerves. At Metalthrone I got used to just highlighting the word 'download' and then clicking the hyperlink button, insert the link. Seems to work a bit different here, but maybe I'll get tipsy and figure it out one day lol. The break in routine is screwing with me though. Also, I need some advice. I'll probably spam a lot of download links, and usually I'm just lazy and post the link I found an album on. But sometimes those links take a while, Mog has already asked for another link for an album. I've got a Mega account, but haven't used it for a long while. I've been using ulozto.net for some time to upload my own files. Not really sure which is quicker for you guys to grab an album, so input is appreciated.

I'll look into finding a modification for the URL thing. Normally I do the BBCode manually anyhow so I never picked up on it in this specific software. Thanks for the heads up.

Mega's all I've used since mediafire went to shit, so I don't have anything to offer in that regard.

Also, I'm gonna set up a separate (private) subforum for downloads, you'll all have permission to view it obviously, I just don't want some uppity outside faggots rolling through and reporting the site for hosting links.

I added the subforum to the Commerce category. Switched you all to the "Ubermensch" usergroup too, basically all that offers is access to the fiesharing subforum but there will probably be other perks added to it later.

As to the hyperlink thing, go into Profile -> Account Settings -> Modify Profile -> Look and Layout and scroll down and check the Show WYSIWYG option so it's enabled.

That allows the little window to popup where you insert the url.

Was looking at the member list and saw that Kat's position is still Untermensch.

Are you sexist or something?
