It's not finished yet, but what are your thoughts on it so far?

It's nice, but why don't I see the modified main menu once I've logged in?

Ah, thanks muchly

cool smiley's btw  :o

Title: Re: Forum - your thoughts
Post by: Rakujan on January 24, 2007, 06:22:46 pm
I wasn't actually a fan of the smileys and hoped to get my hands on the ones used on shisen-subs forums >_>

Edit: Avatar limit is 150x150px (same as SHS) any larger and they will be resized.


Title: Re: Forum - your thoughts
Post by: Space Cowboy on January 24, 2007, 06:31:10 pm
nah /me likes the smiles  >:( :P

Ya took me awhile to figure out the sizing ...

EDIT: I also really like the edit shortcut

I'm with Raku, the smilies aren't very good lol


Title: Re: Forum - your thoughts
Post by: Mr.Valentine on January 24, 2007, 06:59:23 pm
The smiles look kinda distorted sometimes, like the  :P one looks especially dumb.

Other than that, the site is great, I love the "modern-ish" view of the whole board. Good job ^^


Title: Re: Forum - your thoughts
Post by: Rakujan on January 24, 2007, 07:01:24 pm
I need your opinion; what order would you like to see things underneath your name, the fields are (In their current order):
-Member name
-Current title
-Online/Offline status
-Custom text (I.E. Space cowboys "metal rules \m/")
-Group/ranking thingy
-Posts
-Karma (Still not really sure what this does...)
-MSN/AIM/ICQ stuff


Title: Re: Forum - your thoughts
Post by: Electric-Mind on January 24, 2007, 07:03:47 pm
I like it the way you have it set now. That whole karma thing I think is just what people think of you. If they like you they applaud in which your score goes up. Probably just some fun feature.

P.S - I just noticed Space stole my Spike avatar lol


Title: Re: Forum - your thoughts
Post by: Space Cowboy on January 24, 2007, 07:06:28 pm
Actually you gave it to me. I have the same one in black and white  ;)


I think the order it fine Raku

BTW: Do i get anything special cuz im a Dj?


Title: Re: Forum - your thoughts
Post by: Mr.Valentine on January 24, 2007, 07:08:36 pm
The order is really nice how it is now. Please don't change it :3


Title: Re: Forum - your thoughts
Post by: Rakujan on January 24, 2007, 07:15:51 pm
Very well I shall leave the order for a while ^^

Cowboy, I would imagine so, speak to shag about it.


Title: Re: Forum - your thoughts
Post by: Space Cowboy on January 24, 2007, 07:33:52 pm
Ok,


I think you need to make more music topics ... I dont like Jrock or Jpop ... how about some others!

Yeah how about some rap  ::)

well anyway it'll be nice to see some other music like some metal

Post by: Rakujan on January 25, 2007, 03:48:04 am
Okay, well just to keep people updated:
> Karma has gone, might be replaced with something else later :/
> New background.
> New logo thing in the top right.
> Changes again to member information (notice the post counts now.)
> Got rid of that annoying resizing avatar problem when a page first loads up.

Comments on all of the above are welcomed and encouraged! That's about it, hopefully we will have a new smiley set soon.

Should we have a video game forum section? Also I was thinking of maybe a graphics art or image forum. And maybe an anime discussion thread.


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on January 25, 2007, 06:22:12 am
Yes to all of those.


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Mr.Valentine on January 25, 2007, 03:54:57 pm
Wow very nice. I'm totally digging the new layout. It's really great.

Good job guys and thanks  ;D


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on January 26, 2007, 03:41:23 am
Thanks, I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. With the smilies fixed, I'm not to sure what else needs to be done. Anyway, I'm looking forward to when more members sign up ^^


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Space Cowboy on January 26, 2007, 03:35:45 am
I am demanding more music genre's I DO NOT LIKE J-anything ... Cmon Raku ... Metal, Rock ... SOMTHING else besides J-stuff. I like this site and all but without a variety of genre's  im not sure how much i will be here.

BTW: I do really like the new layout ^^

EDIT: I realize now that the J stands for Japanese  ...*smakes head* I listen to some of that ... but I still want more ...


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: shag on January 26, 2007, 04:59:45 am
Don't be so hasty, Space-Cowboy. The music forum is fully open to post about anything....

http://forums.shinsen-radio.org/index.php?board=7.0

Just because there is not a "Child Board" does not mean there isn't interest. Keep in mind, it is Anime and J-music radio primarily. But you're welcome to discuss anything music related in the music forum. If one topic...for instance "Metal" gains enough interest/posts we will make a child board as needed. The J-specific boards are there to keep things more separated.

Thanks.


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Mr.Valentine on January 26, 2007, 09:48:24 am
Good to hear that any kind of music can be discussed.

I love the youtube feature.

I think you guys should maybe add a rule about it though, so it doesn't get abused, like excessive smiley's?

Just a thought.


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Electric-Mind on January 26, 2007, 12:10:43 pm
Am I the only one who thinks "Child-board" is a little um... bad? Is it possible to change it to sub-forum or something?


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Mr.Valentine on January 26, 2007, 12:29:33 pm
I first thought that Child-Board meant that its for children under 18 or something. I then realized it was sub-board. Was quite confusing.

I'm with E-M on this one, if its possible to change.


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on January 26, 2007, 01:23:52 pm
I've looked into it and it might be quite difficult to change, but I do agree with you, Child Board sounds kind of odd :o

Maybe would could also change the online/offline display, so that it just displays the green or hollow box to the left hand side of the users name(no longer showing the text "Online" or "Offline".)  I've tried to figure that out, but failed.

Also spoiler tags when you have the time ;)


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Zephry Asakura on January 26, 2007, 08:51:20 pm
Maybe you should add an .MP3 file page.


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Slash on January 27, 2007, 09:06:27 am
We have spoiler tags and the other issues have been addressed. I started a rock music thread in the music forum. Anyone can make a new topic. Anything else?


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on January 29, 2007, 07:10:54 pm
I'm not sure what people think to the idea, but how about us having a "now playing" feature on the forum, underneath the "listen now" button? I have no idea if this is possible *looks at CandyBar* just an idea, I would like opinions on.



Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Mr.Valentine on January 29, 2007, 07:16:23 pm
As in what is playing on the radio?

I think that is a great idea. I love it  :D If its possible to even do that haha


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on January 29, 2007, 07:19:18 pm
Yeah, that's the idea. It would probably just state what's playing on the main stream.


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Vlien on January 31, 2007, 11:29:15 am
Me like the layout from the forum and the features. (http://smilies.vidahost.com/kao/chika/chirolp_good1.gif)


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on January 31, 2007, 11:41:45 am
That's always good to hear, feel free to post up any suggestions you might have. We want to make the forum as good as it can possibly be ^^


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Slash on January 31, 2007, 12:17:46 pm
The other day me and Raku made the forum Radio titles.

Radio n00b 0 posts
Radio Fan 25 posts
Radio Pro 50 posts
Radio Addict 100 posts
Radio Samurai 250 posts
Radio Freak 500 posts
Radio Hero 1000 posts

Also when you manage to get to Radio Hero. Your name glows blue at the bottom in the Users Online Bar.

Perhaps we will add more titles if lots of users top 1k.


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Vlien on January 31, 2007, 12:23:57 pm
It will take awhile, before I reach 1000 :D
Mr. Valentine might be the first though lol


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Mr.Valentine on January 31, 2007, 12:29:36 pm
That sounds good. Having so many titles. I'll be looking forward to claiming them all.
/me wants a blue glowing name.

Something that has also come to my attention...when you post in a certain topic, and click the post button, it directs you back to the previous area. Lets say I post in "House of Spam", I click post and it directs me to the "General discussion section". I've just been wondering, is there a way to disable this? Just curious, not annoyed or whining or anything.

a now playing option would really make the forums stand out, although it already looks awesome


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on January 31, 2007, 06:56:50 pm
It should be up soon, CandyBar has been quite busy as of late, but he said it's a good idea and is possible. So in short, we are working on it ^_^

It will probably just be for the main stream, or so I would imagine.

This is what I'm thinking of:

Thoughts?

Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Kyu on January 31, 2007, 09:34:54 pm
just like that :) looks good

maybe marquee it, so it looks a little winampy, and maybe have a mouseover that keeps it still so people can read it in its entirity - if you'd like


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on January 31, 2007, 09:49:56 pm
Sounds like a good idea, but this is assuming CandyBar can get it to work. The picture I showed you earlier was just a design I made in photoshop, so don't think we are near adding this yet ^^;

zomg:
You can use a marquee here!


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Kyu on January 31, 2007, 09:51:34 pm
haha yeah! marquees ftw, I have some experience with forums/phpbb if CandyBar needs a hand, although I've never tried anything like the Now Playing concept


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Vlien on January 31, 2007, 09:58:49 pm
Marques since when? How?

Kyu, you have great ideas :D Hopefully they can be done :D

Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on January 31, 2007, 10:13:27 pm

Is it possible to create a way on this site to better alert when there is a new PM. I know you get emails but on this site it doesnt stand out. Maybe change the colour to red when there is a new one?


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on February 01, 2007, 01:05:12 pm
I have been wondering about that as well E-M, I will see what I can do ^^

The now playing feature will be online Sunday or Monday. Implementation isn't a problem, just the time to do it.

The SMF forum software seems to be heavy on user settings vs admin specified settings doesn't it. Seems like there should be a way to have alot of these settings set by default, maybe I'm missing somethin. Who knows...

Gimmicks huh? Flash n Trash ftw?  :grin:


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on February 03, 2007, 01:09:00 pm
I've looked into it, but the only way I've found is to manually reset ALL users custom forum configurations, however when a new member joins they then need to have their settings set to "our" defaults.

If you find anything on this let me know.

-Raku

Gladd to hear about the now playing feature ^^


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!

Sorry if this is only for the forum/if someone has already said this (I didn't read the rest of the thread) but.. on the main site, it'd be a lot more convenient if there was a way to sort the songs by song name/series (if it's from one).


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Slash on February 08, 2007, 05:31:32 am
I believe the staff is working on such a feature. ^^


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Urai on February 08, 2007, 10:00:02 am
Is it possible for links to be given another color? Or underlining them?
Because I almost can't see the difference between normal text and a hyperlink.


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Slash on February 08, 2007, 10:15:35 am
Probably. What would you like? Something darker?

www.google.com

This is glowing black lol

www.google.com

Or maybe just edit the code to make all url links bold?

www.google.com

Or italics?


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Urai on February 08, 2007, 10:25:28 am
Italics look good. I think the other ones are just a bit too much ;)

Edit:
I just discovered some invisible hyperlinks below the "send this topic" and "print" buttons :o

It's a "<< previous" and "next >>" hyperlink, but the font color of those links is white, so you can't see it...


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on February 08, 2007, 11:34:56 am
WOW I never knew they existed!


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Urai on February 08, 2007, 11:39:14 am
Me neither, until my cursor suddenly changed from an arrow to a hand...

Isn't it better to place them under the pages indication? And give them another color of course XD

Edit:
Oh, it's a link to change threads... funny.


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on February 08, 2007, 11:43:54 am
I will try and see about changing the font colour.

Lol, that is funny :D


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!

Probably some wacky error with the theme.


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Electric-Mind on February 10, 2007, 08:56:56 am
Not a big deal but I was wondering if anyone else has this same problem. When I recieve a personal message, the avatar of the sender is cut off. And if their is code under there name to make the text bold or a color, I see the code and not the effect. Am I the only one?

A few of the avatars are cut off. Urai's isn't, but like Raku and Valentine are. It's the width thing I guess. Don't know about the text.


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Rakujan on February 10, 2007, 12:13:57 pm
Yeah, it's because I altered the width of the column on the left to accomadate 150px width avatars, however I haven't done it on all of the pages.

Secondly, about the text. That's really why we need someone with coding experience, I've tried to fix that... but failed.

I'd definitely like to help out, but I only have HTML experience and a minor knowledge of CSS. But I guess that doesn't cut it :(

Well, if you could both read this: http://forums.shinsen-radio.org/index.php?topic=109.0

Let me know if you feel up to the job, or if you think you know someone who might be interested.

I appreciate the offers, maybe I could talk on IRC with you about it at somepoint.



Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: Urai on February 10, 2007, 12:58:28 pm
Yeah I already read that. I am interested, but I'm not a PHP expert. I'm able to read and understand it a bit, but not enough to help you guys out I'm afraid :(

would it have only our scores?


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!

Yeah it would.

I'm pretty sure you could have it add to your rep everytime you beat a highscore etc.

Post by: Electric-Mind on March 04, 2007, 08:40:04 am

I've looked into it and it might be quite difficult to change, but I do agree with you, Child Board sounds kind of odd :o

If the board has several language choices, the phrase "Child Board" is probably in an English translation file for the board software. It will be a simple text file with a list of items and their description in English. I deal with similar things, so let me know if you'd like any assistance.

Yep, should have caught up with the rest of the thread before I posted.

Good attempt at getting valid XHTML. It's always a pain in the ass with forum templates. So many times a change made in one included file will seem to fix the problem areas, but then a different file is included on some pages which throws things off again. It's obvious that you guys have put a lof of work into it. Keep up the good work, it looks beautiful.

Just a suggestion....

the top 10 requests should be "refreshed" every given time (one/two/three months....)

so there is a better chance for the "new" songs to get to the top..... say storywriter or a song by jinn... dunno.

there could be a separate "top 10 requests ever".


Title: Re: Forum - Your thoughts & suggestions!
Post by: ZoiQ on May 29, 2007, 11:46:39 pm
Lol people will hammer the radio with requests everytime it resets, to get their fav song on top 8D

Lieks teh forum, it be gray :3

Gray is a good color, it's overcast hazy skies swirling into a mist of obscurity and unpredictability. It's the cool morning by the lighthouse, where the ocean reflects the sky's dull sleepiness. It's a newborn bunny, fluffing out its gray fur that is all potential for any color coat.

That's why I like it. ^^

I installed some new packages today.

Previous and Next Links for Page Index- Self explanatory. Just look at the pages: on this thread.

Redirection Boards- Admin's can set up a forum to redirect users to a website/url- I'm sure we can come up with some use for this in the near future. ^^

Monthly Statistics on Profile- Go to your profile and click Show Stats. Or click a users profile, scroll down... click Show general statistics for this member. You can now see Posting Activity By Month. The creator says soon even more stats will be added to this add-on.

Edit: Working on changing our quick reply box to look like this:

I don't believe so. Perhaps there is in the theme config, but that would change the settings for everyone. Which kinda sucks.

Even more posts per page? It's taking me enough time already to read 1 page as it is now.
Besides, if the settings would be changed for everyone, we would have to spam the way up to page 2000 (in the House of Spam) again... ;)

For the random header thingm wouldnt it be better to have it change the url of the header every page load instead of changing the image but keeping the same name?

Having the same file name means it gets cached to the browser and only reloads every once in a while owo

It might be like that on purpose or something I guess, just saying~ >w<

Earlier today I was working on trying to get the quick reply box and a portal working on our forum.

Hopefully soon I can get those features working.

Edit: The newsfader has been working for a day or so. Everyone should see it on the top of the forum.

Like with the quickreply box, this is a beta screenshot of sorts with this portal package, the package itself is glitchy. I have removed all of the 404 errors from the below screenshot. As you can see we have some language issues and text problems on top of the 404's.

(I've also edited out some normal information.)

click (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v282/slayerace/tt54.png)

It creates a different layout similar to a website. If by some small chance it gets working properly we could make the portal the default url for the forums, if the feedback is positive of course.

As I said during the testing of the portal. I really like it, it would look great on this forum.

I tried it last night again, and got really excited as there were no 404 errors in Opera!... then I refreshed the page.... >_< and it slapped a 404 in my face...  T_T

EDIT: It looks good right now too, those glitches are so random....

The portal can you rearrange the boxes yourself?

Post by: Slash on March 10, 2008, 02:18:24 pm
The boxes are just the most recent posts. I can set the portal to show 5, 10, or whatever.

The newsfader is below the header at the top of the forum (main page only), it is news via text that fades in and out. Well, that is what I call it anyways. XD

Uhuh, but I meant the boxes in general. Like the row of recent post putting it somewhere else instead of middle; customizing your own portal view.

Insider embezzlement.

The admins and dj's rake off the interest earned by others to buy stuff like yachts, condos and lolies.

It hasn't worked since I have been here, I must have lost millions so far. :trouble:

This is also why no one restocks the store, if you can't buy you save and then they rake off more money.

Do you mean the clock in your own posts? You can change that in your account settings -> Look and Layout Preferences -> Time Offset

Or do you mean a clock on the main site? That matches the one of shinsen-radio shows? Like at most game sites?

When you check the dj calendar -> http://www.shinsen-radio.org/pages/live-dj-schedule
You can change the time to your own timezone, the standard is on shinsen-radio time. So not sure, why and where the clock should be...?
