Little ideas

Postby clairne » Thu Aug 20, 2015 1:43 pm

I've decided to create this thread for small ideas, tips, improvements, complaints and things you notice which don't require their own threads.

I've noticed that there is e-mail column in my profile, which is blank, but I haven't discovered a place in User Control Panel where I can put the e-mail that people can use to contact me. I would like to ask, where is the place for that?

E-mails are hidden for non-admins. If you want to share an e-mail address, PM it. You can also post it in the HoW forum, however it's not recommended you post it at all.

On the other hand, I think it's enough for others to send me a PM :[:)]

My next tip would be regarding the Portal site. There, in the left column, there is a link to Steam group. I think you mentioned once that AGN has also a Twitter page. Have you thought about adding a link to the Twitter page on the Portal site as well? :[:)]

Better yet, I may add a Twitter feed block/module to the index. I'm not sure whether to put it to the left or right though....and I keep forgetting about it.

Since Guild Wars 2 is now free to play, I wonder if it is possible to create an AGN server for this game?

No. The server software is owned and licensed solely by NCSoft. Any stolen server software is illegal.

I'd love to see more suggestions. If I knew more what people want, AGN would be a better place. I have some ideas but I'm feeling discouraged about doing anything since nearly everything gets underused....

I am happy with AGN as it is, to be honest. And if you have ideas, maybe should share them with us :[:)]

I think maybe a YouTube channel would attract more members and live broadcasts would entertain more....but we can't really rely on just me to provide content....

Having personal/profile blogs here may also give more incentives. That should be pretty easy to implement....

I'd really like to give us the ability to have a status feed which also adds Steam and such activity like achievements. I know you can auto tweet Steam achievements on Twitter and such....

Maybe a gamer's gallery would be good too although I rather wait until we update to phpBB 3.1 + that supports easier MOD management....

Yes, posting statuses is a good idea. The gallery sounds also good. Would it be possible to somehow make the thread "AGNites Screenshot Thread" into a gallery like that, please?

EDIT: I wonder if it would be possible to list all people who like your post, please? As for now, it list three of them, even if you have more likes.

I liked the idea of having a feed of AGN's members steam achievements, sort of like the "Steam friends' activity" page where you basically see friends achievements, new purchases, comments, screenshots etc... Except with AGN members (those who want to of course)

Whenever I post something on AGN, a page with a text that I've just posted something appears. May I suggest to reduce the time for which the page is shown? I think a second or less would be enough :[:)] . If you ask me, I would remove it completely :[laugh] .

I'll see how it compares to AVEN, if it's back yet....

Ok sorry for the major belation but I see what you mean now. AVEN doesn't have it and it is indeed a tad annoying and a waste of time and bandwidth, so I'll go ahead and remove it soon.

Update: Done!

I've discovered that a similar shows when I log in through the portal page. Would you mind to remove it as well, Azo? :[:)]

Since we're going to have a major update soon and the portal mod will be completely reintegrated (as with all MODs) and it's a very tiny nuisance there's little point in doing that.

i have an unused youtube channel that could go to this if someone was interested in doing so.
I can also get something for the discord server and its says who is on and stuff if that is something that you could add to the index?

If there is an open API for Discord it is do-able, as long as it's asymmetric so it can't cause the website to seize awaiting for a response.

After the MC server is updated we might be able to have a spectator that can run and supply a virtual webcam broadcast from in the game.

I'm not sure what that would even entail but if you go look in the server settings there is some things in there that I think are website add-ons and stuff so you would have to take a look at that.

And on another note I have been on a few discord servers that have bots and I also know that there or hundreds of discord bots that you can use so if that's something that is wanted I could invest some time and research that a little.
