Things we might like to add on HAF.
« on: October 11, 2015, 08:04:38 PM »
I, on the advice of Tank, am starting this thread as a sort of suggestion box for things we might like to add or remove or change from the site.
Hopefully this can serve as inspiration for our moderators and resident tech head and lead to a better site.


To start things off I would suggest we add nationality to the personal information panel (P.I.M.P. ?)that comes with every post you make. Just to make it easier for people to remember who and where people are. Maybe just a little flag under the line for gender.

Not sure I like the idea of showing how stupid estadounidenses are every time I post a random thought.

Take it as inspiration to not post as stupidly, then.  ;D

I think the only person who's stupid here is me, so you're safe.   ;)


I would like that a better smiley pack be added to this forum, or keep the ones we have but add more. It's not the most important or pressing thing to request but it would be nice to be able to express oneself nonverbally without having to google an emoticon. [/feeling lazy]   :P

He can't help it ;D

I like the idea of adding the flag below each of our avatars, especially seeing how diverse we are here. I say pretty please can we haz some flags?

I'm down with that.

Legend:
Can do/will do
Might do
Cannot/will not do

Nationality flag/field - easy to implement, but might interfere with future upgrades. Will have to look into that.

Smiley pack - we will see what we can dig up. A perfectly harmless fix that.

How do people feel about like/dislike buttons?

How do people feel about like/dislike buttons?

If it's à la Facebook where members can like (or maybe dislike) posts then I don't see the harm in it as long as it isn't anonymous.

I've been on a big forum where a props system was implemented and it just turned into a popularity contest where members with the most 'likes' were seen as the most credible, even if some were not. Some members would compete for brownie points and I'd assume some with views that opposed the majority wouldn't express themselves for fear of getting negative props or dislikes. :-X Groupthink was rampant.
Not saying that would happen on this forum, the circumstances may be different, I just don't like the props idea too much.  :-\

Like/dislike buttons - The forum has a karma system that can be implemented and used. In stead of a specific post, it assigns "likes" and "dislikes" to the individual user. The like system would only be really useful if one could search for most liked posts, topics, members, etc, but that would be a highly intrusive mod. Unlikely to implement, but will look into it.

If this does get implemented I think we should be sure to get a premium smiley pack which includes the following:
