To Jellyfish:

I would like to extend the offer of me caring for the Wolfteam forum boards. As someone who personally interacts with the community and such daily I might have a better grasp of relevant information and necessity in announcements. Also it would be one less burden you have to work through and pass judgement on.

(Every few weeks or so I already do go through all the boards and re-organize/Clean as it is).

Re: Changes To The Forum Layout

Currently In Progress

I'm currently working on improving the overall layout of the forums, improving the ease of use and helping you find the content you're looking for lot faster.

You'll see that we've implemented quite a few changes to the forum index, a list of these can be seen below.

REMOVED:
- A number of titles that we no longer license
- The international board under general (since we have international forums)

MOVED:
- Goal One has been moved to the Mobile board
- A large number of browser games have been moved to the Browser folder

ALTERED:
- Leisure Activities under General has been changed to an off topic board.

ADDED:
- An official suggestions board on the Aeria Games board (please use this for general suggestions, since games have their own specific suggestion boards)

Jellyfish10001 has also been trawling the boards helping to remove out of date announcements, locking old threads and making sure that things that are so out of date they've become irrelevant are gone. So please join me in giving her a big thank you for her efforts!

Please bear in mind that this is an ongoing process (there's still a fair chunk to be done), ] there are still a lot of changes and fine tuning to be done, to that end I would appreciate any feedback you have in improving the overall layout of the boards.

Laters!  


Why not make 5 major forums. "Aeria Ignite" (for pc games), "Browser Games", "Mobile Games", "Mini Games", and "General Aeria". When I see the forums section, it still looks like a mess. Also you should create a mini-section for selection under each forum selection, so that they can see all major groups under the give main forum sections.

King's Road needs to be moved under browser. The rest of the games need to be moved under Ignite to properly show where each game belongs and an idea of their requirements. EA Games needs to either be moved into it's own game section where all licensed EA games are clumped together to properly represent the EA selection or the forum needs to be divided into it's proper section of ignite, browser, mobile, etc...

Great work so far, but a lot of work to go. Good luck!

Om nom nom nom! "You want me to give up? I've never learned how to. You do it first so that I know what it is, then I might consider it."

CM Edit: Please refrain from bringing personal opinions about a GS into the thread, especially when this only serves to derail the thread.

If you have any formal complaints to make feel free to drop me a PM with examples and these will be passed on to relevant parties.

Solve that per PM, the Community does not need to know your personal conflicts.

If you're not satisfied with the GS Work he's doing, feel free to report it.

Lemme rephrase this for you.

Aeria doesn't want people to see all the complaints people have for their staff and would prefer you complain in private where they can ignore you further.

Game Sages are volunteers who help out because (in general) they're passionate about the games they play. If anyone has any complaints, they're more then welcome to drop me a message and I'll look into it, but I'd prefer that we don't start throwing mud at one another.

Back on topic

Thanks for your earlier feedback, as I've said a lot of the changes made were global changes. There's still a lot to be done and I appreciate your thoughts and opinions on the current layout, especially since they revolve around ease of use which was something I was looking into.

I've asked about a possible upgrade to the software (no promises though), hopefully that will fix some of the bugs you mentioned.

How about opening a forum for Gunz 2, which is 4 months overdue. Better yet: How about opening the game itself, which is 4 months overdue?

Remove the subforums of dead or MIA games. They have no point and serves to only house spam.

DKO, only needs the general forum until it returns. Everything else should be close and archive.

LO, only needs the general forum. Everything else is pointless and can be remade if/when the game actually has a real beta here.

AK, founders beta forum needs to die and go away. The game went live how long ago. The founder's forum is just an eye sore.

As already mention, Kings Road needs to go under the browser game.

Reorg the forum under its major headings.
1) Aeria Games
2) PC Games
3) Browser Games
4) Mobile Games
5) Partner Games
6) Ignite Games

Remove the SB from the index. most people there don't realize its the index SB and spam it for S4, sf(1/2), and ava issues. Please see if you can give us a mute function on SB so we can block people spammer and inappropriate people we don't want.

Billing and Account subforum: Unless there is an active GM or staff that wishes to deal with issues here, it should be locked/removed. It should simply contain faqs on what to do and not house useless post that no staff reads and deal with. Almost everything in these 2 forum can be answer with "put in a support ticket and work within the ticket to fix your problem". The remainder of the issue are answer by the faqs/stickies posted if people learn to read (RTFM except its a faq/stickie).

Its some improvement so I'll give it that but what of the on-going "akbar hujab punjab help you get your love life" garbage that has been littering the forums. Are we going to get a possible auto-ban bot for that or is that going to still require some work?
