My Dying Bride Forum

Take from me the crown of sympathy...

Improve Your Forum !

Remarks, suggestions for improvements and questions about the web forum.

Postby DarkLink » Mon Mar 24, 2008 6:51 pm

Ok so basically, this is the place to post all the useful ideas you ever wished to post to improve this great forum. I started myself to find some ideas, which most of them are based on what I could have experienced while browsing the other musicaly devoted forums.

So, do not hesitate to share your opinions, ideas and other useful remarks.

What about this chat that someone proposed to set up sometimes ago ?

To continue...

That chat room died a quiet death it seems.

I am personally not a big fan of chat rooms so I'm not going spend a lot of time on making this happen. If someone else wants to set it up and maintain it I'll happily advertise it for them on the website, though.

" Add friend, add foe" >>>> LOL

I thought there were only friends to everyone on this forum ! :D

Did I mistake ? :o

Why is there a google bot and an msn bot browsing the forum ?

Ah well, now you can put people you privately dislike in their place :)

Because search engines send bots all over the web all the time to crawl websites. This also happened on the old forum but there you never saw it because they weren't recognized.

Don't worry! this message won't contain more than 60000 characters. :D

Have you noticed that after having edited a post, when you come back to the thread, you can't see the edits at first. You have to come back again and see the changes. It is not really disagreable, but just to mention it...

And can't quote more than 3 times ? :?

That's odd. It doesn't happen to me. Do you wait for the browser to automatically go to your edited post or do you click "view your submitted message"?

And can't quote more than 3 times ? :?


I honestly did not know that that was a feature of the new forum software, but I'm happy with it. I hate cascades.

Very nice improvement for polls Jeen ! Much easier to create and the fact that people can choose several options is great.
Nice work again.

I've just improved this by giving the 'read' and 'unread' icons a slightly different color. It should be easier to tell them apart now.

This section of music trade is in theory a good creation. But does it really deserve a whole category ? :? It could have been integrated into the general chat section, as a sticky thread.
Plus, you can find loads of items browsing E-bay or on any other sites...

Anyway, I'm sure it is going to be a sucksess. :D

I was writting a new topic for the MDB section, and it took me at least 1 hour as it was concerning all the songs of an album. So I fnished and then clicked "submit" but I was re-directed to the login page, even if I logged before... So, I logged myself again and then all what I had written was deleted. Nice feeling I can tell you...
Too long to write ?

Ahahah :D

Yeah, this post was really long but I was so proud of it! I looked for many words in the dictionnary and the English used was ,by the end, of a good quality. That's why I was mainly disappointed...

Grumpy ? Well, maybe it's the impression I gave on the forum but you know, french people are always complaining about everything and arrogant towards silliness^^
And those clichés work perfectly well for me. :lol:

That's right. Another way to avoid this problem is to hit 'view preview' now and again and then continue editing.

As for me I help it simpler: before clicking to post I just select the whole text and Ctrl+C :) If it fails to implement my post then I paste it in a new one.


Yeah you're right. I thought of doing that as well but too late unfortunatelly. I'll take the time this week to make the review in depth analysis.

I can barely see the pale blue on black ... I wish they offered alternative screen views.

Yeah, it's not easy to see.
Here I use zoom on firefox (CTRL + +) it helps a lot.


The contrast on my own monitor is pretty high, so I have no problem with the blue on black. Thanks for alerting me on this though. I'll see if I can make some modifications to make it easier to read.

It seems clearer indeed but anyway if someone was disappointed by the color, it has always been possible to change it. Now it burns my eyes :D

A solution: 8)

But I dimmed the color a bit, should be better now.

Because for many people, it was broken. The blue text was hard to read on some monitors.

How about a new forum design, btw? I know it's much work, but since the new album's design is pretty light, maybe a white background would look good in the forum, too?

Heh, actually doing a new forum theme is a good idea, I simply didn't have time for it before my holidays. I'll see what I can do now though. No promises on delivery dates.

As you may have found out by now, it is only your first post that needs approval. After that has been approved, you can happily post away as much as you want.

I noticed that not just one, but two of your postings ended up in the moderation queue. This is probably because you submitted your second posting before the first one was approved. Both have been approved now though, and from now on you should be able to post without needing any more approvals.

Those of you having trouble seeing the forum properly: let me know what browser, version, and operating system you are using.

Of course everything should work on all platforms and all browsers...

No,no^^ I never did that. Or just maybe once, when I was younger :D

But I do think I have handsome, because it's the better way to have confidence in yourself :smug:
