Forum ideas?

Post#1 » Thu Dec 29, 2016 7:30 am

Ok guys here's the situation, this is a new forum but were lacking Categories and subforms. Right now all we have is a DEV category and a Forum Development subforum, and these are temporary and won't be here after the new categories are made!

We need more than that! From replies below I've gathered to make a Support subforum, under the new Spacebuild category(maybe!)

We don't need topic ideas as of yet ; )

Edit: I changed to op to better reflect that I was looking for ideas for subforums under categories, not topics under subforums.

Add your ideas below!

A poll will be created when we get enough replies to warrant voting for the new forums!



Rules: Please keep replies constructive and formal for this process.

Remember, I'm also looking for moderators and your replies here will be taken under advisement, do NOT ask to be a moderator or part of the staff, this isn't constructive and will flood the forum and could get you banned before we even have forums!!

Note: You must be Registered to reply!

Topic is locked down to text only replies, no signatures, images, bbcode or smiles!

I think Wrex was rather talking about the big picture, not individual forums.

May I suggest the following sections (or categories if you prefer):
  • First section: Official development. This section would include forums for releases and updates.
  • Second section: Customization. This section would have support forums for modifying Spacebuild for your needs. For example lua discussion, mapping and modelling
  • Third section: General discussion. This section would include forums for general gameplay and non-spacebuild topics.
P.S. The current theme looks pretty good :ugeek:

I would like to see a forum where people can post embedded screenshots of ships they did (maybe hosted on imghosters?), or youtube videos. And/or adv2 dupes.

Also for general users, a forum for spacebuild-wiremod related stuff, E2 code sharing, help.

Maybe also forums for foreign languages for people not speaking english well?

Expanding on this, Under the "Official Development" section there could be sub-forums with announcements for upcoming updates, releases or just general announcements; as well as another sub forum which contains patch/build notes for each version of Spacebuild, to keep it all organised in one easy to find place other than Git.

Probably just personal preference, but the General discussion should be straight under that forum section IMO. The "General Discussions" could have sub-forums for talking about Spacebuild itself, addons for Spacebuild made by people other than the actual devs possibly, and of course the obligatory off-topic forum (Though it could also be its own forum entirely).
I would like to see a forum where people can post embedded screenshots of ships they did (maybe hosted on imghosters?), or youtube videos. And/or adv2 dupes.
Oh, there could also be a subforum here for uploading adv-dupe files or images of builds.

The "Customisation" section could be something more akin to a general support forum area where you can ask for support altering the addon or just help with technical issues. So 2 sub-forums called "Mod support" and "Technical Support" or something like that.

And yes, I realise I just said some of what had already been said... but they are the basics of a forum so kinda had too :D

It's still all subject to change with feedback from you guys, but it's a start!

Mapping tutorials would come handy :lol:

Also something like mini github where people could brainstorm crazy ideas.

I've unlocked the forums. We'll make the rules up as we go along I suppose!

Let's see how people act first, just know if you do something where common sense is blindly rejected you will be banned. Let's not try to make our mod's like those from the other forum we all know too well.
