You want more than 30 characters needed?
A horrible example. Visitor messages are pretty much meant to be short.Hero of Time said:I believe the character limit needs to be increased. I just sent a vm saying "the villains of Twilight Princess" and it got past the limit.
I fail to see how you came to this conclusion. Think about it logically for a bit. Will increasing the character requirement really improve the quality of posts? No. It won't. At all. Forcing a stronger character limit upon a crowd that's already been through this leniency for at least a year now will probably do nothing but encourage finding other ways to bypass the limit, or just not posting at all.To ensure posts are higher in quality the limit needs to be higher. Being able to post the subject of a sentence and getting past the limit just isn't enough.
I really like this idea. Are the badges like the thing that says "MEMBER" or do they go somewhere else?Okay, I think I have an idea.
So I am sure you all agree that aside from the user title glows and colours, the market doesn't really have much to offer. Well I have an idea that may change that.
You see, I was peering over my dad's shoulder whilst he was on this random website. It had a market type system, like we do. But you could buy things called "user badges." Basically you had an avatar for a person, then maybe a user title and some info about posts and whatnot, but then there were these little icons that personalized their profile.
User badges are little icons in the shape of what they represent and can be purchased using a market type system. The examples of the ones I saw on this other site include: Harry Potter houses, religion, parent of so many children, what bands you like, world flags, books/games/films you are into and more.
And obviously this being a Zelda site we could have even more! Perhaps ones to do with which game we like/have completed etc. There are a lot of possible ideas for user badges out there. I just think it would be a nice way to personalize our profiles and put some more good things in the market.
They'd go below your avatar as little icons, but you are only allowed a limited number of them. So they fit in a row and don't crowd up. Here is the first example I could find, from the website boardgamegeek. Some of the badges are specific to the site, though.I really like this idea. Are the badges like the thing that says "MEMBER" or do they go somewhere else?
