Suggestions? what would you like to see?
« on: May 18, 2005, 05:26:17 PM »
What would you all like to see?  What do you think could be done to attract more visitors to the neogeocd.net forums?

our main forums keep increasing.... as well as traffic to the neogeocd.net site.... but the forums are a bit stagnant.

What do you all suggest?

Wouldn't mind have a signature. Granted that tends to get out of hand... perhaps limit it to no images, and 4 lines of text? I guess that wouldn't really attract anyone, but would help give users their own identity.

I do understand that :)

but unfortunately, we won't have sigs here.
There is a pretty good reason for it.... and I know it sounds stupid.... but check out this topic:
http://www.egameaddiction.com/forums/index.php?topic=86.msg616#msg616

The decision has to do with the way our old Ezboard ran.  We had 70,000 + posts there.... and at 35000-40,000 posts we had to can the sigs because it made things run so slow.  I am not sure if I Can disable pics in them.... OR if disabling pics will happen across the entire board (meaning no one could post pics).
I think in the newest beta board version, a lot of things have changed, and this is one of them... but there is no way to limit to only 4 lines of text.    It would have to be a limit of characters... and if people are html linking web addresses to the sigs, its hard to character limit like that and keep to only a few lines.  IE the limit would be over 200 characters... and some people can abuse that and make their sigs a max of 200 lines long (1 char per line).

Plus spammers abused the sigs as well  :-\

Its not a bad suggestion.... its just that we finally went to this after a HORRIBLE decline in board effeciency (on our old board)... so its just hard going back to it with all the problems we had.

makes sense. I've ran boards in the past, and when you have a lot of "features" turned on, it does bog forums down quite a bit. I just don't have the patience to type in a sig after every post like yourself ;)

So is this site/board officially dead now? Is there any plans to update/overhaul the Neogeocd.net site? I really hate to see this site just fade into the nothingness of the internet.

Looks like the old archived posts are dead. Can't access them anymore.
