After being a (registered) user on this site for a bit less than a month, I've come up with some suggestions.
1. When you click on a latest blog/forum comment, it should go to the appropriate page (ex. If someone's comment is on page 2, then the link on the front page will take you to the second page)
2. Change the Blue "VuTales" Header on the front page to "Top Blogs" or something of that sort.
3. When I view my own VuTales ID, it should not count towards total ID views.
4. Friends: When I add someone as my friend, it should notify the..friendee that I've friended them, and allow them to accept or decline or ignore that request (Kind of like Facebook). Right now, you can friend anyone, and your ID says you're friends with them. This would be useful, because like really, does Nass really know me? Or did I just friend him because it said I didn't have any?
5. Change the Thread Starter box to a slightly darker color.
6. Achievement/Medals: Kind of like Youtube, stuff like owner of #1 liked blog.
Ehh, that's it for now, but I'll probably come up with more.

Lol, funnily enough, 4/6 of these were suggested, implemented at one point, removed, modified, or scrapped, or maybe still in dev.

:p

The ones on the front page? Erm, yes, they should. I know how to fix it now that I think about it, I'll do it later

Sure. I never really knew what to put there. Just sort of stuck.

greenelf said: 3. When I view my own VuTales ID, it should not count towards total ID views.


It will only once.

Meh. Friends never really was friends. It currently works the same way that MMOTales did. You just add people and that's it. There's no real use for them. v2 used to have a friends page that would show you stuff your friends posted, but it wasn't remade for v3. There was meant to be a feed system (think profil3) that was going to replace the friends page, but that never really happened. Right now the friends system is just... left overs. Since nothing really happens when you friend someone or are friended, I didn't see the need for an approval system.

*shrugs*, I guess. I don't see the need personally, and adding even more colours would dilute the colours even more.

Ehh, that's it for now, but I'll probably come up with more.

Used to be one. It was ditched, was meant to come back for v3 for various reasons.

Oops, I forgot to add my last one.
I also wanted to see if you could add a Slideshow feature for photoblogs. In the day where we have an excessive amount of smartphones/cheap cameras, I think it would be really useful

Then photoblogs would have to get their own separate section. Or you could just use an extension. -cough- Opera Image Preview Popup has a built in slideshow feature-coughcough-

If you're posting a lot of photos at once, doesn't the group image code thingy put it into a slideshow? (Just look in the help tab under BBCode you'll see what I mean)

Yeah, but I'm talking about more like a "Click here to begin photoblog" text, which would open up the photo group. Oh, and captions would be nice too :p

How about a preview option of unpublished drafts?

Considering there's the option in the forums here, as well as on the blog-make part of the dashboard, it shouldn't be too difficult to do so.

That's a good idea, as long as it's an option to do so
