Postby Matt » Mon Apr 03, 2006 9:28 am

We want the AFC forums to become YOUR forums... so, if you have any ideas for any add-ons you'd like to see, we'll go over them and see what we can do, so just post any ideas here and we'll check-em out!

What about RSS-syndication?
With it I could configure the AFbot (IRC-bot) to notify everytime somebody posts something new to forum... Something like this:

I'm new to this site(not to forums) and I find it all quite muddled. I think you guys should work on making forums user-friendly. A prime example of brilliant forum work is this site

I understand the confusion over the past few weeks due to a flurry of new features being released, hence why I am going to update the FAQ someday, do show all the new AFC Features people are unfamiliar with. But as for the forum being 'muddled', I'd definatly need a better explanation. By my view, the Gamespot Forums are by far a bad example. Firstly, Gaming Culture is a completely different society, they love being overwhelmed by loads of stuff. Secondly, just that. Those forums are cluttered, have adverisments, the text is too small, and there is just too much stuff! These forums, in my opinion, are a good tradeoff of simplicity and feature-richness. But if you feel they are 'muddled', I am all ears. Anything to improve, that's why I'm here.

Centaur,

I've found the forum quite easy to adjust to... I think if anyone's finding it muddled, it's because they're just not used to the standard design of a forum. Having been on various other forums, I figured everything out fairly quickly. Compared to some, this one is very clean and easy to use. ArtemisIII, if you're having trouble, you might try changing your forum layout to one of the the standard-issue designs, like subSilver... If you're still having problems adjusting, well, then just give it a few weeks and I'm sure you'll get used to it.

Yes i agree with Diana, I found this forum one of the easiest to adapt to...but i think a couple of thing's could be changed such as: The PM to be a bit bigger, Maybe a different colour background once in a while and also (maybe asking too much) some more emotion's to use...

I like the forum (not that im any expert, by any measure) , but could possibly have a tad more colour other than that it does its job and thats the important thing

You can go to your Profile and choose different skins that you would like for this forum. They have tons of different colors, so feel free to do change your skin for color. (That sounds odd.)

I'm probably wrong and making myself look stupid, but when I'm typing a post I can't find the button for strikeout text - where is it?

I think there should be some forum games like proper games made by people on the forums. I mean a proper section for 'em.

We're looking into it... I've got some time to twiddle with these flash projects of mine in the half term and while I'm on exam leave.
