It would be nice to have post amounts in forum. It says a lot about someones intentions. And their experience.October 12, 2011 at 12:33 pm #88967standuncanMember
This would be an awesome place for custom sigs, probably some pretty cool stuff would show up?October 12, 2011 at 1:03 pm #88974
I think custom signatures are kind of redundantOctober 12, 2011 at 1:03 pm #88975TheDocMember
Like most forums, sigs eventually get used by spammers. We took sigs out when we switched over to Vanilla. I agree on the post count and other things though, I’ll see what I can get @Robskiwarrior to look into!October 12, 2011 at 3:10 pm #88979JohnnybMember
I think it’d be cool to be able to put a link to your website/portfolio/twitter/dribble in your signature, or in your profile at least. I’ve taken advice from a lot of people on the forum and I’ve thought a few times that it’d be nice to find out a bit more about them professionally/follow them/make a connection.October 12, 2011 at 3:13 pm #88980
Perhaps profiles could be integrated with Twitter accounts in the future.October 12, 2011 at 3:20 pm #88981TheDocMember
@Johnnyb – we’d like to avoid implementing sigs. Inevitably it will be exploited by spammers.October 12, 2011 at 3:36 pm #88983JohnnybMember
@TheDoc, bummer. Just thinking out loud but how about a system where if you contribute 100 posts to the forum then you earn the ability to be able to put a couple of links in your sig?October 13, 2011 at 10:32 am #89023BrightonmikeMember
I like it the way it is. I hate forums that are cluttered, with ridiculously over the top profiles. I don’t see the need for post count.
I don’t think this is really a forum to be a close knit community, more just a place for people to go to discuss web dev and get solutions to problems.
It’s on topic, there’s no general chat – I like it like that. Means I know I can get a straight answer.October 13, 2011 at 10:50 am #89024
Hmm, I don’t know. I talk to a few people regularly from this site. I kind of like to learn from them on a personal level.October 16, 2011 at 8:24 pm #89107joshuanhibbertMember
I agree with @Brightonmike, I like the way it currently is. If you use the forums enough, you will start to recognize the more valuable members of the community.October 17, 2011 at 3:17 pm #89170standuncanMember
What about a preview of the post when you hover over the post title? I like those on forums to ‘quickly’ see if I can contribute anything to the post/thread or not. Sometimes titles themselves are too vague. Just an idea.October 17, 2011 at 6:50 pm #89185FourizeMember
I also agree with Brightonmike, with a counting system I find it can often make things competitive, which thankfully there is non of here. Maybe something like a thanking system would help though.October 17, 2011 at 7:16 pm #89189noahgelmanParticipant
Yes, instead of just a post count, just a count of how many times that person has helped someone.
