I like all the changes that have been made. The forum index was very cluttered before, and there did seem to be a lot of useless groups. I don't like the new colors for the groups though. They all seem too pale to me, and I don't like that members are colorless.

Agreed, the members color should be a bit more blueish in my opinion. Light blue.

I don't like pale either, but keep in mind that the new colors have to stand out from GAC's black background.

I'm personally surprised rank re-organisation didn't happen earlier. How did I stay a chatmod when I barely ever posted (let alone went on the chat)?

Anyway, slightly more on-topic, these changes look pretty nice. Just as a quick suggestion, maybe all the Spore-related sections could be merged? It doesn't look like many users here are still interested in it, and it could go a long way in making the forum look less cluttered.

PostSubject: Spore   Wed Aug 31, 2011 6:03 pm

You want to clump all the Spore stuff together and leave everything else for Minecraft and off-topic stuff? Even if Spore's not as popular as it was, this is a Spore forum, isn't it?

There are about 4 Spore topics in the Latest Topics bar right now. It isn't really a Spore forum anymore. And if 1 section is too much, the other stuff could just be subforums in the main one. Actually, I think that's quite a good idea. One Spore section and a bunch of Subforums in it.

I agree the focus of this forum isn't spore anymore. Lots of people have been talking of this but i haven't seen anything come to light: A Whole GAC adventure collabaration. Maybe if we could replace Team GAC with an adventure collabaration subsection.

The view I take is that this is a forum for people who play Spore, rather than a Spore forum -- I'd sooner we branch out, personally, than settle for being a clone of the Sporum with a token Off-topic section.

As far as sub-sections under Spore are concerned, I think that would be somewhat contrary to the goal of streamlining the system -- it won't mean there are more Spore threads, just that the few we have will be spread thin. Equally, this doesn't mean the things you guys are talking about couldn't be done in individual threads within the Spore section -- someone just has to step up and make the topic.

Very fair point, but i think that we still need a little bit more structure, because otherwise it'll be impossible to find a thread you're looking for, you'd have to trawl through for hours. But the number of sections does need to be cut down, alot.

Actually, as regards the time taken to find threads, I believe the opposite is true. Happy. Currently, finding threads without using Latest Topics takes a long time because you have to check a number of different sections to find what you're looking for -- once you're in the right section the most you'll have to do is go back a page or two to find it.

The balance between the two situations we've described, then, is what we have to strike. My opinion is that, should we conform to the model in the OP image, the number of active threads per section would be low enough that finding a specific thread would not take long, as it is simply a matter of going straight into the one section it fits into and, if necessary, click back a page or two. Joyful

I don't really know, depends how well moderation goes, and if it keeps to its current standard it should be fine happy. I guess we'll have to wait and see razz

Jeez, the power goes out for four days and the whole forum gets changed? I should lose power more often.

Here are my suggestions:

1. I know that most people here don't discuss Spore any more, but even so, this is a Spore forum. I don't like all the sections being so compressed. I think most of the Spore sections should just stay the way they are, but we can lose the ones that aren't used.

2. Get rid of the Awesome Adventurer and Elite Advisor sections. They were a bad idea in the first place.

3. Make more Off Topic sections. All the threads seem to be clumped into that one section.

4. Make the Noble Members color brighter. It blends in with the black background and looks too similar to the Administrators color.

5. Give me access to the admin panel.

That will be all.

@Gelo: A lot of the discussion earlier in this thread covers your first three points: the compression is a drive towards user-friendliness -- it'll make it a lot easier to both find topics without the use of the Latest Topics bar (which is pretty much all I use to navigate the forum currently -- ironically making the entire forum into a single section XD ) and to decide where to post topics.

Imagining it from the perspective of a new user, the forum should be significantly less daunting with only 5 very clearcut sections. Happy.

As far as Off-Topic is concerned, another advantage of adding a dedicated Minecraft section is that it takes some of the load out of the Off-Topic. Joyful In most cases, there aren't really enough threads on one subject within off-topic to justify a separate sub-forum -- OT will likely be one of the more active sections, yes, but I still don't imagine that the number of active threads, once we minus the Minecraft-related ones, will make it unmanageable.

Its also 1000 times easier to do more harm then good, get people upset and screw stuff up. Its not all its cracked up to be. You have to disregard your own views for the most part and deal with everyones problems. It becomes more of a job then a pleasure.

This, I've been doing this for over a year Gelo, and I'm just about ready to take a break. Running a medium-sized community takes a lot out of you. Being an admin on eurospore, or the sporum must be like dipping your face in battery acid.

Alright the coloration and Ranks are pretty much finished I tried very hard to please the majority. Its again, probably not final because it may not stay desaturated. Please keep in mind I had a very large amount of requests and suggestions slammed into me please do not have a fit if things did not go your way.

WHOA. Love the new colors, although I'm still a dull shade of blue. :P

I guess I'll shoot for being more helpful here now...

BTW, the colors should be brighter. EDIT: THEY NEED TO BE BRIGHTER AND MORE VIBRANT. MY EYES CAN'T TAKE IT!

The colors are staying as is. Its final unless Hutch or 3D want to change something, or I decide I dont like it and go to the more saturated style. razz This poll was so close. Down by one vote. I really don't want to hear everyones complaining. It is what it is, if your going to complain, take it out of a pillow or something. Theres no point in raging because you did not get your way. At the end of the day its a color.

Now to clear up some confusion, when I re did the ranks people were moved into their appropriate ranks. There were a lot of ranks before as we all know now theres only 4. It may appear your ranked lower this time, but don't worry about that too much because you know theres only 4 you can reach and you get through them rather fast should you post often.

Let me explain how I converted everyone.

Members and Legendary members became Members

Elite Adventures and awesome adventures became Honorable Members

Specialist and Advisers became Adventurer

Demoted admins such as Shadow and former chat moderators were placed in Noble. Noble still have chat moderator powers.
