Before I get the ball rolling, I know someone (i.e. TUBSWEETIE) is going to whine about me not putting this in the suggestion thread. Well, I did, a while ago, and to avoid being redundant, I’m posting it again here.

We all know a lot of things could be better about ForumWarz. Here I’ve put a few that are IMO most important.

► IDC should be flash-based. Less lag, and would allow for some other pretty cool stuff.

► There need to be different kinds of bans. For example, someone who is caught hacking should get a full ban. On the other hand, someone who trolls in IDC or Flamebate should only be banned from that particular feature. It’s unfair to be banned for 3 days for a Flamebate post and miss Domination and lose 2 medals (personal experience, kthnx).

► We need a better IDC filter. I mean, it’s too easy to spam. Personally I think that any message longer than 2 lines should be blocked. I could deal with spam if it were only one or two lines long. Besides, people on IDC don’t normally post 80+ characters in one message.

► Klans need to be more than just groups that can raid. There needs to be klan-based domination, and klan e-peen should lengthen everyone’s e-peen that belongs to aforementioned klan. Therefore, the more peen a klan has, the more people would want to join it, to make their own peen longer.

► Poll results should be in bar form, not number.

I’ll be adding more as I get to thinking of them.

1. Anything is better than the IDC we have now D:

2. If I understand what you’re saying, yes, I like this.

3. Can’t say much, haven’t been in IDC enough.

1) why should evil trout re-write something that is functional in a language he isn’t familiar with. He might be, but the entire site is java and Ruby and ajax so it’s a no-brainer to have an ajax chat.

2) different kinds of bans have been suggested loads of times through better channels.

3) /ignore. apparently it works properly now so use it. IDC isn’t a constructive chat anyway.

keep your suggestions in the suggestion thread. the whole point of a centralized thread is to AVOID having lots of ‘i have suggestions’ threads that clog up GD. feel free to bump it with ideas or tubmail ET

Tubs, just because you don’t like me doesn’t mean you have to bash me. Anyway, I have like 30 of these brainfarts that I intend to post here.

Also,

1) I can code AS3 and work Flash fine. I suggested it, and I never said I’d make ET do it.

2) So many people suggest it because it’s a good idea.

3) IDC AND incit-chat need this feature.

There are regularly suggestions throughout game discussion, and this is the first time I’ve seen a mod suggest we should only post suggestions there.

Tubmailing ET defeats the purpose of having a suggestions thread. The only reason to do so would be if he didn’t read it.

I’m not trying to bash you. I don’t think it’s necessary to make new suggestion threads and apart from the one that is already being discussed among the modsquad I gave my opinions.

i meant like if bumping isn’t good enough to tm him a link or something.

i dont like dupe threads Log in to see images!

especially because it’s generally known that ET isn’t likely to see them.

1) well it’s ET’s call on who gets to create game internal game content. i can’t speak for him there

2) it’s being addressed along with a mbumive pile of other issues. believe it or not people, there is stuff going on behind the scenes Log in to see images!

3) they both have it :/ Don’t they? I popped into INCIT and ignored people just now.

Duplication is inevitable. If players are tming ET their amazing new ideas, then that is also duplication, should he actually some day decide to read the forums. And without dev participation in the forums, making suggestions at all is rather pointless.

Why do you need a spam blocker when you got an ignore feature? I honestly don’t get it.

I brought this up awhile ago, where it’d be a very good idea just to make a thread on flamebate of a list of known bugs issues and problems, and a second list of things that are on the agenda to be worked on.

That way, there’ll be a lot less dupe threads of “I HAVE AN IDEA” and such, which have been suggested several hundred times before, and is already being worked on.

Does anyone read it? It seems that if you want your idea considered then it is best to make a thread. You make a thread and it gets discussed among the players. The idea gets fleshed out and easier to judge it than through one post.

What does happen to the suggestions made in GD? Consolidated by diligent mods and presented to ET for efficient consideration? Or all filed under the ignore pile? It seems the only effective way to get attention for your contributions is to pick a fight.

Neither, it’s not seen half the time, when it is seen they give the message “There’s already a thread for this”, and proceed to never look at it again.

OH GOD SPIDERS

Flash is for pussies and is an easy and lazy alternative, who cares if you can do more stuff with flash? If they convert to flash Forumwarz will be just like all the other lame browser games out there. The fact that this game’s effects are all scripted with Ruby, a lot of crafty Javascript and clever CSS is what makes this game so appealing to some, because it’s different. In my opinion it takes much more programming prowess to create a motion tween with the usage of Javascript.
