TOPIC: New Site

New Site 10 years 10 months ago #16

Hope you don't mind some criticism :P But don't worry I have some praise too
First the criticism
First Where's the name withheld button?
Two I don't like how other users can see i'm online while this is a good option I Would like a sign in invisible button or when I sign in be able to see an option would you like to be scene or invisible? ok nevermind just found the option in the profile sorry :(
Three I think the chat button should only be visible when you are signed in. I know this goes into some serious coding but this discussion board already looks awesome so I know you could do it! B)

Second the Praise!
First Like I said Love the new discussion board! the option to bold underline smiley faces and hopefully it won't compress it into one paragraph.
Two The new format will take some getting used to but so far it's more (what's the word?) Yeah Dynamic! B)
Three The Writers showcase looks pretty AWESOME :cheer:


Anyway hope you'll respond and God Bless




P.S why does it say last visit 1999? :P

Re: New Site 10 years 10 months ago #17

Hey, thanks for being the very first person to post on the new site! We are always open to suggestions and do what we can to accommodate our visitors. Here are the answers to your questions.

1. "Name withheld button" For now we are not opening the discussion board up to anonymous postings. No names are shared only screen names. This, among other reasons, helps to keep postings a bit more responsible.

2. "Online users" This was a default setting for the forum, but this is one that we can flex with you on--it's already gone!

3. "Chat button" The reason we keep the link there even if the chat isn't open is that not everyone visits the site when the chat is open. For those who visit when it's not open they wouldn't even know that we have a chat feature if it disappeared when closed.

Thanks again for your feedback, both the good and the "constructive criticism". We are all very excited about the new site here, and want it to be the very best it can be! So keep on sending feedback! :cheer:

I changed a setting so that online/offline status won't show up in the user list, but it still shows in your posts. If you want others to see you as "offline" all the time, here's how:
Click Profile Tab.
Click Edit.
Click Forum Settings.
Change "Show Online" to No.
Save.

Hope this helps!

This is officially the first post on the Guide Discussion Forum, therefore the oldest.

Do a better, older operation time travel than this. I'll wait.

hi ;)

But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up on wings like eagles,
They will run and not grow weary,
They will walk and not faint.

Attention, all guidesters! You are now entering...*dramatic pause*...the one and only GUIDE MUSEUM!! This amazing place contains such ancient wonders as the first topic on the site! We will acquire more antiques in the future. For now, enjoy the relic that we have displayed so far. Thank you. :P

What!? I'm not a fossil? I guess I'm not. I'm also not a legend. Sigh.
Yo, I‘m not really on this site much any more. I miss y’all and I’ll hopefully be more active some day.
