Suggestion, forum personal profile
« on: May 18, 2007, 08:42:49 am »
Hey lads and lass'.

I came up with this completely original idea, never before heard of. How about enabling some sort of personal profile, where the common forumer can write a bit of text and add another picture than his avatar? I know it's never been seen before, and you might be intimmidated by the idea of something brand new such as this, but give it a go, ya?

No really, I think it would be quite cool if you could just write a little something about yourself if you wanted to. Virtually every other forum has it, and it never harms anyone. I think it would bring a more 'personal' touch to the forums. What do you say?

Yay,
echo

Yeah I think it would be cool. You could add links to blogs or something or how to get in touch with you other than IM and emails and such. People could see a different side of a person, but I agree with skykanden, it should have some limitations or something to "balance" it out a little

Poll added!..

yeah, I remember there being something like this back in the old forums, but I do believe it was only with the picture.

I mean, this doesn't have to be much, just one box where you could write a little.

Yeah, it definitely sounds good to me. I only hope it's easy to insert for the admins, don't know if there's a module that does it or if it has to be written manually.

Anyway, sounds like a good idea to write for SoldatPage. "Soldat Profiles"...
Hmmm.

What the heck? TWO pictures on the side? I've never heard of that, and it kinda sounds spammy to me, lol (considering how many restrictions there are on signatures, I wouldn't think this would get implemented particularly if it showed in every one of your posts).

... Virtually every other forum has it...
Where did you pull this out of? Link me; I've never seen any forum that has this ability, frankly.

^^Yeah.. It's not like it will show in every post you make.
And the cool part is, peops could spam all they wanted, 'cause it would never really intefere with how they posted, see?

lol... I guess that'd be better, but I still don't have links to example forums where such a feature is already implemented. :P

Or maybe where every person just gets a page to do with whatever they want, so that they can just like, be cool and all and put whatever they want on there, with maybe a few nifty things, that would be really neat.

/* ontopic If you turn the soldatforums into myspace I will hunt someone down and hurt them :o. I disagree, mainly because there's so much stuff and so many restrictions already that it would make them even more strict -_-.

a soldat based myspace?  kinda defeats the purpose of having a forum in the first place... well to an extent it does.

No, not like that, still within the forum's stuff, but just a much more advanced profile.

"advanced profile" by idante... o well then im compelled to agree with this thread.  as long as it isnt a day to day thing the way myspace is... SF isnt in need of such a thing
