I made my smileys by copying one of the smileys that we have here on GAC (I use this one :I due to its small amount of detail) And then I paste the smiley in PSP, erase the eyes and mouth, and adding in my own details.

EDIT: I made a new smiley: This time it is a quizzical expression for when you want to express confusion.

I tried completely erasing the background and saving as a PNG this time. Maybe the black background will be gone

Awesome smileys Gelo! Do you think you could make some sort of sleepy/sleeping smiley? If so that would be great! Also, if possible can you also attempt to make a smiley holding up a sign saying either "AFK" or "BRB" I think those would be cool.

Here's another smiley I made, for use on the chat:


http://i768.photobucket.com/albums/xx324/Gelatino95/Emoticon_afk.jpg?t=1291432475

AFK stands for "away from keyboard" or more accurately, "Alfred Frederich Karlston" But most people tend to use the first meaning.

Remove the Spam section completely, Spam is pointless off-topic, by creating a spam section, anything posted there is not Spam. Also, having a Spam section actually sends the wrong message.

If you have a thread that does not fit anywhere else, use the Off-Topic. Besides, it is effectively an area which the GAC says that rules no longer matter. People generally spam to ruin a thread and send it off-topic, there is no point to have a section for it.

But then people will spam the other sections. Surely it is better to keep all the Spam in one place than just have it everywhere.

No, Spam has no use anywhere and needs clamping down on.

A slight re-organisation of the forum and the threads in the Spam Section can be placed in the right places. Some can be put in current sections anyway.

Spam by definition is bad, so why give people a chance to do it in the first place. Anyone who spams should not be welcome on any forum.

Vek is right. The reason that spam even continues on our forum is because the spam section exists. If there were no spam section, then people wouldn't still be spamming elsewhere. I'm with Vek on this one: I think the Spam section should be gotten rid of.

I know I'm going to get SO much flame for this, but I have to agree with vek. Because the argument of "It keeps the spam out of other threads" is completely worthless.

Expect the spam section to be removed, and the threads split up. Tell me what you guys want.

I just noticed that there are some new tools on each post: view IP address, report post, and lock post for new reports. I assume that either Hutch or Camel added those. Would you care to give us a short explanation on what each of the buttons does?

Okay, but I'm still confused about the "Lock post for new reports". What does that mean?

We don't really need one of those yet, as GAC is a small enough forum that we can browse all of the active topics with ease. Although that definitely sounds like a good idea for when we gain lots more members.

PostSubject: ~~ GAC Fourm Suggestions ~~    Tue Jan 11, 2011 6:20 am

I have a few ideas that could improve the way the fourm is and make it a little less messy and get rid of the slightly unneeded stuff. Get rid of some sections, combine some sections, Add new ones, update old things that remain un-updated. ECT. These are my thoughts on the fourm and what it can improve on. Wether you agree or not, I am posting them now.

Do not be rude and be an Ars. This is mainly a discussion thread and possibly a home to suggestions for the Admins.

Section's/Delete/AddNew/ECT.

Now a few of the sections seem very outdated or otherwise useless and are practically duplicates of each other. I will first start off with the Contest sections.

GAC Official Contests and User Made Contests....

They should just be put together. Wether or not you guys can somehow combine sections. Or just move the threads to the sections... it seems a little unneeded to have two contest sections. I know, ones for users and ones for Official ones. But if you are going to have official contests, why not just put them up on the Global announcements area and put them in one big contest section. It seems very logical to me and could help take up less space.

Combinein' them seems like the best way to take car of this. Move all the threads from the sections into one big new one.

Onto the next sections.

Prop requests and Commissions & Requests.

If you really thing about it, they should be put together as well. More so put the Prop request threads in
Commissions & Requests and then you could just delete props section. It just kinda seems like a duplicate of Commissions & Requests and to me (Again) seems rather unneeded.

Tips & Tutorials should be merged with Advice, for same reasons listed above.

Again Merge another section... General Discussion and Spore discussion. This one could be debatable I guess. But I am pretty sure they are the same thing.

Adventure advice should just be deleted. I see that is serves no purpose and it is a duplicate of tips &Tuts, and advice.

Now enough with the combinin' lets move on to something that could be much more probable.


Add a help section.


Wether it is glitches or fourm help.. this could be a very useful section. Think about all the people needing help with again, glitches and game wreaking things. Also if people cant get on the site or anything really. It could be very helpful.


Updates:


At the very top where the scrolling bar is, you will note that one of them says "request at these sig shops" that should be updated. Adding the newer and more active ones. I have not once seen those ones listed on the recent topics.

Then updates teh global announcements... I mean really? They are almost all old and old. :P





Thats all for now.
