board changes

#1 Post by creep » Tue Aug 02, 2011 5:36 pm

since it's not really my board it's really up to hokahey but i did change a few minor things. hokahey can change them back if everyone disagrees.

30 minutes seems a little long, just because people should be called on their bullshit, especially you. I mean me...especially me. What about 15?

The sub-forums from xiola were good. They don't have to be the same names or anything, but it seemed like everything fit somewhere.

I think the 25 responses thing could be good. Sometimes it's annoying if there was some big excitement, and you get back to 1000 separate pages.

good thing you had time to edit your post.

i'm sure there will be sub forums similar to xiola.

30 is good. I hate not being able to edit something I fucked up the spelling on or something. I never understood the need to restrict editing your post.

Standard sucks. I'm down with this 25 thing. I mean, this place should be kinda like xiola, but it's not like we shouldn't fuck around with it a little.

Oh yeah, you've gotta increase the image quality for the avatars. They're bigger, but you're allowed something like half the quality. 12kb is the bare minimum. That might have been what sonny had, although I think he made it bigger at Pete's site.

I agree with this. Good thought, Jasper.

To be fair, k-v mentioned it first somewhere, but it got lost in the shuffle. I've just noticed that all of the avatars I've ever used at xiola...all both of them...don't fit.

Well good on both of you then. :grin:

I had the same problem with the avatars when I first joined too.

Now you're going too far in the other direction. I think it might slow loading time or something. I wouldn't make it more than 50, but 25 is probably decent...I think. Otherwise we'll have ES with HQ ass gifs that take 15 minutes to load...
