Hello There, Guest!  LoginRegister
Welcome to the former forums for DidYouKnowGaming?! In March of 2013, VGFacts was launched and this community was merged into the new forums there. These forums were originally taken offline at that time but I brought them back as an archive while transferring sites to the new server. Registrations and all interaction (posting, editing, moderation, etc.) are disabled but everything can still be read. If you're interested in joining the community, head on over to https://www.vgfacts.com/forums/ and join there but I've always thought it was important to preserve a site's roots so these forums will forever be available in this read-only state. Enjoy!

There should be a button for spoiler-tagging like the other stuff has when you're writing a post.

Domfoz You can't go crating a forum for each country. You'd have over 100 forums just on that. Then again, the admins of DYKG are the ones who decide.

Maybe just a place where you can have one thread per country. That should minimize size impact.

Sub forums will be made when there is a need for them. I'll see what I can do about the spoiler tag, but a lot of the things requested require me to edit part of the forum's core code. I'm not going to delve too deeply into that. I don't want to break the forum.

That's a good idea admin. Delving too deep into toe forums code can make it difficult to apply future upgrades or security patches. Most forums bring plugin/add-on managers now that allow you to add things such as the spoiler tag. Some of them even allow you to do those updates or patches through a manager of sorts too that copes with such changes made by the plugins/add-on.

That's why my website's forum is self-coded. It allows for me and my friends to do anything, while keeping the code out of public view. =P

I suggest a list of the last posted topics, or the active topics. Also like the idea of the manga/comics forum, and the country flags of the users.

Just reforcing the idea of having a page where you can see all the threads that you have posted on in one page (maybe in the CP) so it can be easier to navigate through threads taht you've already taken part of without having to go through all the forums all the time.

Option to disable reputation/thanks systems locally for people who do not wish to use them.

Also, the user CP page says the maximum avatar size is 100x100 but the image displayed in threadview mode appears to be a shrunken 70x70 version.

100x100px limit is also to help keep file sizes down. Thanks and Rep are staying. If you don't want to use them, don't.

Just noticed that you can subscribe to threads. I'm not sure if you subscribe to all threads taht you've posted on or not though.

@Sohakmet there is an option for that on your UCP (Edit Options -> Default Thread Subscription Mode:) and aditionally everytime you start a new thread near the bottom (Thread Subscription:).

I understand the image size limit is to keep server load down. What I said was the User CP screen says "don't upload an image bigger than 100x100", but when you are viewing posts in a thread the biggest the forum will display an avatar is 70x70, so there's just a discrepancy. Is the size limit 100 or 70?

Also, I think you should post a set of rules or guidelines for the "Submit a fact" section that requires people to source their facts or otherwise back them up with reliable information, that way nobody feeds you a dud fact and someone calls you on it if you use it.

@CFMM, not only server load, but also page load times for users navigation the forums. Though some claim it to be "misleading", just give the admin some time to check and fix the problem. Magic does not happen that fast. Tongue

Unsure if someone's already mentionned this but can you remove the "Time Spent Online:" on the "forum info" section.
I don't want to know how long I've spent on here Big Grin
