If you could have one new feature, what would it be?

It can be anything you think would be useful to have on Spyroforum.

A storage system so we do not have to use image hosters to post images? tongue

Did that on the old forum and it ate up the server space if I'm not mistaken

Yep. SR just deleted all the old images and they took up like 5 GB IIRC. sad I was thinking about making a plugin that uploads to imgur, but I'm not sure if it'll be possible.

On the index page, show the title of the thread most recent posted in in all the sub-forums, next to the most recent post date. I didn't realize that the date was a link to the thread before I tested it just now.

A notification system within the website that allows me to subscribe to posts without cluttering up my email, or something along those lines

Re: If you could have one new feature, what would it be?

Doesn't Google host their own servers for anyone with a Google account to use? Maybe you can migrate the entire website to that and perhaps it'll allow more space, albiet different fees.

IDK, it's just my guess though. I only went there once or twice.

If it were that easy hosting companies would go out of business

Re: If you could have one new feature, what would it be?

We're talking about a company that has over $110 billion under its belt. Per year, Stormy would likely have to pay either nothing or $100, and if this site has to go down, Google won't have to suffer from a less-than-1% loss.

I'm not talking about google, I'm talking about other hosting companies. If google made it so easy, how could the others still exist? they'd be completely whiped out by now.

Re: If you could have one new feature, what would it be?

Here's a link to the service I was talking about:
https://appengine.google.com/

It might not be much, but there it is, so take it or leave it.

Re: If you could have one new feature, what would it be?

Eh,  call me old fashioned but I'm not really on the cloud services as a provider bandwagon. If I want to host a website, I'd rather do it on a physical server that I have full SSH and FTP access to. Then if there's an issue with the server I can look into it myself instead of having to rely on Google support. Not that Google support isn't good, just if it's my webapp, I want to be the one held responsible for it.

Not to put words in his mouth but I'm fairly certain SR would feel the same

Re: If you could have one new feature, what would it be?

Thanks guys, I'd definitely like to implement some of these in the feature. A lot of these things could be really useful mods for FluxBB that haven't been made yet.

Hosting is not going to change here as 1. I don't make those decisions, and 2. What Ranger said.

Re: If you could have one new feature, what would it be?

I would like to see the Spyro forum logo as a moving .GIF image.

i think it might show a moving image of Spyro started smiling.

Re: If you could have one new feature, what would it be?

Actually, how about you make a new thread for ideas for an additional forum theme that you could allow users to select?

Re: If you could have one new feature, what would it be?

^ I second this. I know it would be time consuming, but it would be cool if we could have 3 more options: classic Spyro theme, Legend of Spyro theme, and Skylanders theme. That way people could pick their favorite version of Spyro (classic for me tongue).

Re: If you could have one new feature, what would it be?

That was the original plan! Obviously I never got around to it, though. sad

By the way, if anyone is good with CSS and wants to try making a FluxBB theme for the forum, I'll consider uploading it here.

I don't like animated gifs in web design. It never looks good. And before you try to argue about it, flying Spyro when you post is an exception because it's like a loading page. tongue

Re: If you could have one new feature, what would it be?

Honestly,

Most of these changes would most likely be made by Stormy, so we have to keep in mind that as she does have a family, that is the priority over SpyroForum. So it would be unfair to expect too much of her.

Just my thoughts.

Agreed. I'm honestly quite satisfied with the forum the way it is. Any new features would just be a bonus.

Re: If you could have one new feature, what would it be?

Well then another suggestion is to add a new group of users to the cp that stormy can add people too who have limited access to the theme part of the forum. (Make a thread of "participants" who could work on this)
