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!

RE: Suggest a forum feature.
LOL, SERIOUSLY THOUGH, why not?

A lot of games have that kind of counter now days, specially MMOs. Tongue

Edit:
I would also like to suggest thread merging. I know now it will not be an issue, but in the future we'll probably have those lazy users who will start the same topic over and over because they do not want to be sifting through the pages of threads already created.

I don't want to know how long I've spent on here Big Grin

It's a meter that tells you wether you're a no life or not :x

I'm as big of a Megaman fan as anybody but it would be cool to see some other icons on the side of the forums besides just him there. I think something small like that could encourage a bit more activity on here.

RE: Suggest a forum feature.
If possible, I'd like to see a sticky thread in the "general discussion" along the lines of "the absence thread" where people can say when and for how long they'll be absent.
That way, we can expect someone not to be present rather than think that they've abandoned us Sad

Cool

I think this forum needs a Fast Threads section. A section where things go by fast. This'd be where you put all of the forum games, Post Your Favorites, You Laugh You Lose, etc. There was one of those on an old forum I visited, and it was awesome.

I'm not sure I follow. What would be different from making a "You Laugh You Lose" thread in a Fast Thread section than in our current general section?

The Fast Threads would be used for games and other useless stuff, while General Discussion would be for discussions of various, off-topic subjects.

RE: Suggest a forum feature.
If you do a Fast Threads (or Forum Games as I've seen it called) I highly suggest disabling post count in that forum to deter would-be spammers/post whores from ruining the fun by just hijacking threads for the purpose of increasing their post ranks.

Basically we don't know if anything is ever considered accepted until after it's posted on the site.

No, I know those. Just there's a ton that're apparently sitting on ice, so it's unclear if they're acceptable or not until they either suddenly appear on the site (in which case it suddenly appears in the Successful section as well) or if it's more-swiftly Rejected.
