Alright then... AFC has hit a rough patch, and we need your help to get us out of here.

We need opinions and suggestions about AFC. From anybody. We don't care if you've been around before the dinosaurs or if you just joined two seconds ago. We don't care if you have a gazillion posts or if you haven't posted yet. Everybody is entitled to an opinion, and we'll treat all opinions equally. What do you think we need to improve on? More importantly, how can we improve? What are we doing right? Go ahead, be as critical as you want. The only catch is that it must be constructive criticism. Not only is flaming unwanted, but it'll actually hurt AFC, and we all want to fix it, right?

Now, before you get started, there are two things that must be noted.

First of all, this is only a temporary measure. We hope to get a more permanent system for feedback in the future. For now, this thread serves as a quick and easy way for you to give us feedback, and a quick and easy way for us to see all the feedback in one place.

The other thing is about the suggestions themselves. Yes, we want suggestions, and we'd love to implement them. But we have to ask you to remember that we can't do everything. We might get some suggestions that simply aren't possible. If that's the case, please don't take it personal. We'll explain why it isn't possible, and maybe with enough discussion we can reach a compromise.

Anyway, with that all said, what are you waiting for? Come on in and tell us how we can improve AFC!

Let me say that when I first got here my favorite thing to do was to debate even though lets face it I sucked and I still say some stupid things some times. I think sharkie would agree :P but anyways when I screwed up there were always a bunch of people on me telling me what I needed to inprove on even though it wasn't in the most appropriate manner (flamming). But the point was I got the point accross and was able to improve. I personally like things strict just because it keeps things orderly and in line. I'm all for looser justice (rules) but if we get to soft then it will simply turn the site rather sloppy. so be more lax but don't go to far on it.

Also I beleive that if we explain something to a "n00b" and yet they persist to do it regularly then you as moderators have a right to ban and or flame them.

suggestions hmmm. like I love to debate here because people are at a high educational level and aren't allowed to use large amounts of offensive words. Anyways debating is fun and yet there are hardly any people left to debate with because most have run off. sharkie hardly debates and bornsatin as simply I believe left.

Also on the new book club I think it would be a good Idea for the moderators to take part to support it. because the way it is right now they get maybe 4 book suggestions a month and maybe 2 actually read them. So what I'm trying to say is mods need to be more involved in site forums.

I just have one: Debating is a big part of AFC. Well not really but people love to do it. I think it should have its own forum again instead of being in City CentraL.

How about a weekly debate on subjects voted on by members of the forums?

I don't think weekly works, wew seriously should have a single debate forum.

We do. It's underneath the entertainment forum. It's called 'The Debate Forum'.

I think what Newnar means is a full-blown section, ex. "Haven", "Fowl Manor", "Manor Grounds", etc.

Maybe not that major...

we need more emticons there isnt even a sarcastic one here! I love that one! Its my fave... *sniff*

Seriously, we DO need more interesting emoticons and also can the size limit for avatars be bigger? It took me a long while to find one i liked AND that fitted.

And finally I think we need a thread that explains in detail the meanings of web slang and FF slang like OOC and mary-sue I didnt know what a lot of these were for a long while and was too afraid to ask someone incase i looked stupid/nooby

For a long time I thought AU meant the author was australian or it had somehting to do with australia and i also felt really proud because there much more AU fanfics than UK or US fanfics and i was like "Woot Woot! Go aussies! We write more fanfics than the americans do!"

Then i realised it meant Alternate Universe. Boy did i feel liek and idiot. This wouldn't have happpened if there was some sort of easily accessable dictionary around.

This isn't much of a suggestion, more a request. I would like to see some moderators do some RPing. I heard someone in the RPG section say they would like to see your style. Anyway, I know a lot of you a students and don't have much spare time for that, let alone run this site, [i]while[/i] keeping up with school work.

Um, if none of the mods have an interest in RPing, why should they? Just because there is an RP forum and we manage it, it doesn't mean we ourselves are interested in it.

i think after a topic is locked it should be delited at some point, because i pretty much live on the arcade forum and if you look there there is a solid 2 and a half pages of locked forums no one so much as looks at.

also i think that the arcade and the AF forum games should be convined and made into its own forum called games, i just think it would make it much easyer, mostly because the arcade sub forum is a very popular sub forum and accounts for the majority of the veiws in the square. if it cannot be it's own forum you could at least convine the two sub forums, please.

oh and one more thing, can you guys fix the post count or is that a problem with soft wear, the proble is to the right of my post it says i have only 24 posts but if you go to this link

search.php?author_id=2729&sr=posts

witch is my total post count witch you can find by going threw the user control panal, it says i have 190 posts, i know i dsen't relly mater but i dont like people calling me a noob because i dont have over 30 post and useing that to beat me in a debate

(i.e. well what do you know you only have, like, 20 posts, like,) w
well not exactly like that but you get the pictore

Post count isn't increased in The Arcade because it's not a forum that contributes to anything...
