Feedback of the Forums

Recommended Posts

Alex pointed out that we do not have a Topic for feedback for the Forum itself, so here is one. We are currently taking on board any ideas you have for a new forum skin, anything you'd like to see on a new forum if we where to develop our current one. Also, give us feedback on any other issues with the Forums here.Cheers JD

In our on going effort to make the Mania Hub forums as fun as possible, we rely on the community to report any abuse or activities that violate our posting guidelines. Whilst we have a team of Admins who monitor the forum regularly things can slip by.If you have witnessed any such activity or abuse, you can now report it, by hitting the report button by the side of the post. This flags the post and alerts our Hub Bot as well as the admin team.

Admins, I know how hard you slave over this lovely forum. Here is a request:Would it be possible to brighten up (in some shape of form) a way of alerting you that you have a new message? All it says is 1 New Message at the top and you have to look closely. Could the green strip possibly change to another colour and have some large text amongst it?Other forums have a better way of telling you have a new PM - not that I'm criticising you system of course. ;)

The feature is there, it's just hidden. This is because we have a completely custom forum skin, so we can get this place to look nice, and to achieve this we need to hide bits of the original, and the bit we've hidden contains the pop out message box. We'll look into it.

Theme Park bloke, if you want to know so bad, set it up so your alerted via email... It's not difficult to see if you have a new message and I'd rather be happy with it jumping out and spamming me every time I have a new message.

Because we rock, the popout personal assistant, message notifier, thing, now works again. Also when you use quick edit now you'll get some feedback on what's happening, like loading etc, so you don't leave the page before it's done!

It's probably because while you are posting, a lot of your posts are also being deleted, bringing it back down.

yes, perhaps you are right, although I'm not sure how my posts can be removed when there are no admins or moderators online.:Pand anyway, why would my posts be removed.

The simple answer is that they take a while to update. Long answer is that post counts are cached to reduce server load, and only updated at random intervals.

okay, sounds a much better explanation!:Pinteresting... first forum I've been on that does that I think in future if I have a problem with the board, I'll just write to the admins, save other members being sarcastic.out of interest, why does only certain forums up your count and others do not

Because some members boost their post count up in the off topic area, and when new members come along, they see a member with a high post count, and assume they're all knowledgeable in the area of Thorpe/Chessington/Alton/Whatever, when in actual fact they're supreme ruler of the Random Spamothon. It's difficult to go in much more detail than that, all you need to know is that its done :P
