Have something you think should be added to the forums? Well name it here, if it can be done, we will try to do it, do note there are always limitations with stuff not working with the version of VB we have or working with our theme, but if it can be done, just it will most likelly will.

Aside from that, all complains go on the other thread.

Is there a mobile version of the forums? What would it take to add one?

I'm pretty sure Pisco made that happen. Have to ask him though.

Should there be a link back to the regular site, or should i just make the forum link open in a new window?

Is there an option to put all the avatars and poster stats on the right side (ala SG again)?
I only say this because its easier to read posts if they are closer to each other.

Good question. I think the best bet is to have it open in a new window, but even still, we should put a link to the site somewhere on here.

Can't do it because of the theme, is not an option I can toggle on or off, is an option that is hard wired to the design of the forum. You are just gonna have to live with it or we can all start asking for donations to buy a new theme which are not at all cheap.

"New Window" means new tab (if your browser is smart enough to support it) there is a link on the very bottom, so you might need to make it jump to a new tab on the mean time while we figure out how to add settings to the top buttons.

Mobile forums will be added later, but in reality most plug ins are just there to allow you to see the forum but not post in it, if your phone does not support html, then it might be time to get a new phone just saying.

PS: Verizon has some sweet deals on the droid right now. (which is better than the stupid iPhone)

Okay, just throwing this out there. This is the Talkingship forums. Talkingship is a podcast about 4 things. In the forums, 3 of those 4 things are represented. We have a Movie section, Music section, Game section... where's the beer section?

Knowing my luck, someone's already pointed this out, I missed the post, and it's already in the works, but if it isn't, that is what I'd like to suggest be added.

Section name is beer, you can then break it down to types of beer, ie: Lager's, Pilsener, so on and so forth. Hell, have a section for homebrewing, get the community members sharing tips if they know about that sort of thing.

Anyway, that's all, just thought I'd throw it out there.

Awesome point. We really need to add that in. I'll get with Pisco and get it done soon.

The maybe 360 PS3 and wii sections should be renamed Microsoft Sony and Nintendo, to cover handhelds as well.

Adding a "Handheld" thread because A) Microsoft does not have a handheld system and B) is less work for me since I'm still looking for the BBcode for the other thread

Yah, someone already mentioned that, I actually need to make the secondary rank and then make the thread, give me a sec, I'm making an image for the new BB tag I'm adding.

I have a question. Would it be possible to make another section at the very bottom for these threads? Like...a Suggestions/Forum Features section. That way, the Bridge isn't cluttered up with people bitching about the site and we could have a more dedicated way of fixing/improving it. Then we can move these threads over there and everyone is happy.

How should we go about adding new categories and forums?
Should we just add as we feel? Make suggestions to be voted on? Send requests to someone in particular to add them?
Here are ideas I have.
Music- Covers, playlist/mood, maybe some kind of interactive thread (link 3 songs, guess the theme), B-Sides, deep cuts...

Deadpool
03-28-2010, 06:50 PM
Ok. Here's a thought. [CODE] tags so we don't have to put spaces in them to demonstrate.

Like...instead of this: [IM G] jfdbekgbd [/IM G]
We can post it as is inside of a [CODE] tag and it will just show the code.

I think we should hold off on making more forum sections If we have to many members will stop looking at some, it dilutes the conversation.

How about a few more ticker thing(dont know what they are called) to go on the left side of the main forum page. with the top ten of these. Examples: most resent posts, highest post counts, newest members, and busiest threads.

Newest member is already there, regarding adding more, you might wanna talk to choppy, he has some crazy good knowledge of how to make things work.

Gadgets / Tech section

Some some place to talk about all the crazy crap I buy, just because it either has a Blue blinking LED... or if it has a fucking Apple logo on it.

That and a place where people can ask about tech shit, I'm a geek by trade so I can help out with any kind of Mac/Windows problems... pubic lice though... I'll let some other poor motherfucker deal with THAT

Agreed. I think everyone should be the same color, and the Dark Blue is tough on the eyes. If I were to be forced to choose between Blue and Pink, I'd go pink, but I hope there are some other options. Try to find a color that isn't so hard on the eyes.

Also, I can't see the difference in features between the iPod version of the forums and the main version. I'm not using any special apps either. Wouldn't think an iPod would be that different to an iPhone.

Hey I'm the new guy here but a long time listener and always loved the Sound System segment but I always had to rewind to find the sound again, looking at the forums I see that Djdsf has done a great job with a recap of each episode. My suggestion would be to do a link dump of each item such as a youtube link to a song or a link to the beers? Maybe this is me, but I'm a pretty lazy guy hahahaha
