I have an idea. How about a Mention System.

With the Mention System, when somebody quotes you or say @Sonic or something, you will get a little notification. Sometimes I post in threads, and people quote me and I never know about it. I see this as a grand idea that could help make this place more active.

That's a really good idea. I rarely look back on old threads so it'd help if someone quoted/replied and wants an answer back. :P

I'm the opposite, I always look at every thread with new posts, a feature like that would really help.

You can subscripe to a thread so in that case you always will get notifications when someone replies to the thread. And you won't miss it when they tag you in a post
In my setting, I made so I subscribe to any thread I post in, but this tagging is new to me.

Yes, what is this tagging? How does it work? How do you do it?

I think, when you subscribe to a thread, new posts should have the option of coming under your notifications.
I don't want constant email barrage, and it is tedious to check.

I'd like to suggest a signature rule alteration. The last time I checked, these are the current signature guidelines:



As of recently, several users have had signatures that have far surpassed this limit, and have clearly not been warned about it (otherwise their signatures wouldn't have been this big). I've been warned in the past, even when I've only gone a few pixels over; however, users nowadays have at least surpassed 50px and seem to have received no warnings at all. I believe this is unfair, and to reach a compromise I propose a rule alteration.

I'd recommend that instead of having a 800px wide by 250px tall limit, we have a 800px wide by 300px tall limit. Either that, or moderators need to start handing out warnings and infractions. I'm not going to name any specific users, but clearly many people have been disregarding these rules, and it's been bugging me for quite some time now.
Oh. My. God.

Moderators are clearly not doing their jobs, because I've seen signatures that far surpass the set limit. I don't even have to measure them to know they're over the limit. I'm not sure if it's the fact that there's a lack of moderators around, or that the current mods don't give much of a ****, but this is ridiculous. I will seriously call people out that have signatures that go over the limit if you want examples. I'm still proposing a rule change, but people should still be warned. How do I know they haven't been warned? Because these are ACTIVE USERS with signatures that surpass the limit, that's how I know.

And you are aware that even active users with large signatures who have been warned still refuse to change it? It happens often when people get warned even after a couple of times they still don't listen. The wall of text people use in their siggy is making it exceed the rules. Maybe we should get rid off the wall of text or have a text limit like only 2 lines or 1 line to tone it down a bit

An suggestion: not sure if this is possible for the forum staff, but I really like when we get weekly/monthly shoutouts. Like the Post of the Week, or Topic of the Month deal that used to be on the front page. Not only did it generate more forum activity but I feel it pushed us as a whole to be a lot more active and make generally better posts! :D

Lots of irony is found in that the biggest complainers of the large sigs have a **** ton of text/images under a spoiler's tag. It's like they're saying "We want a huge goddamn signature but don't wish to see others openly have something 1/4 or 1/6 of what we got." Lose the crap under the spoiler tags and I'll take you guys seriously.

As for a suggestion for the site. After seeing most HKs and HNs bully, talk down to, and in some cases harass members on this forum; one HK was even banned twice for trolling me while there are currently HKs and HNs taking shots at not only me but others as well. I feel there needs to be a new justice system associated with them:

If an HK is reported on 3 three times for violations of the forums rules no matter how minute and the mods deem the reports legitamate (Key part there), they should lose their HK/HN status and not be allowed to even be voted back in for at least 6 months (Meaning they may never get it back). This will ensure that they uphold their duty to be "Role Models" instead of the current "I've got some color on my name and that means I can treat you like crap". If they are voted back and removed three times, they are perminantly banned from ever being made an HK/HN.

If you're worried about there eventually being no HKs/HNs or worried that they'll just stop being active out of fear, then that's more than enough to see that you fully concede that there's an issue with the individuals who are voted to that status.

I don't see why this has any impact on why the rules aren't being upheld. I'm sure the mods power in this situation doesn't end at a warning...
And who says they don't get infracted after being warned several times? Sometimes the users with the large signatures aren't always that active or don't post a lot so when someone is replying to a thread with many replies it's easy to overlook that person with the large signature. If you notice someone with an oversized siggy then you know what to do. Report it. That way it can never be missed by any mod. Btw several people with oversized signatures have been informed to resize their siggy. I personally think the wall of text should disappear and maybe it should be either text or one spoiler tag. The biggest trouble with the oversized sigs is the wall of text or many spoiler tags in it

I completely agree. And I've been warned for having sig pic at the rules set and then infracted after I shrunk the sig. It wasn't until AFTER I got infracted that they told me is was because of the SINGLE LINE of text that I had in it.

So very happy those Mods are no longer mods as they seem to have purposely left out the relevant information until they moved to punishment; all the while they kept a huge stack of text/pics in a spoiler tag. Even without the spoiler tag being expanded, their little setup was still much larger than my original sig and single text line. Can we say hypocritical?

Edit:

Also, I really do believe this would do this site and it's members some good:

The way you worded the post made it sound like there was nothing more that could be done. Evidently, you didn't mean it so, but it came across as "well we've warned them, what else are we supposed to do?"

What, may I ask, is the issue in having content under spoiler tags? The purpose of the signature limit is a physical size limit intended to stop cluttering of threads and, to a lesser degree, prevent absurd amounts of data being on each page (from what I've gleamed anyway). If a person puts something in a spoiler tag and their signature is under the size limit when they're closed, what's the problem? It's out of the way to those who don't wish to see it.

I hate large signatures. Not because I want more content than others (as you're implying the "complainers" do), but because it's seriously untidy. If a person cleans away their content under a spoiler tag then that's fine by me, as their signature is conforming to the rules whilst allowing those who want it to have a further peek into's a persons content. Honestly, with the logic it takes you to complain about content inside spoiler tags you may as well complain about links in a signature too. Both methods hide away cluttering content behind features that conceal it until clicked.
