See the title. What do you guys think are the most pressing things I can do for forum improvement? I'd like suggestions, so I can fix the place up a little. New staff (what type)? New banner? New boards, or rearranging boards? Etc?

I'll be buying things to spruce the forum up in Februrary/March-ish, so please keep that in mind when suggesting things to me. While suggesting things like that is okay, I'd love to hear about things I could improve for free, as well.

I've been feeling like I should update this place, so I want your input.

Me as Admiral Awesome. Just a suggestion. Take it if you want it.

But seriously, right now just focus on membership. A proper domain would help. Affiliates with other sites. And those damn ads...

1. Get Opera 11.
2. Right-click.
3. Click on Block content.
4. Click the ads.
...
5. PROFIT!

I want speed.
L-com is slow. And when we post something, it takes time before it appears on the home/latest posts.
Aside from that, I don't really care. XD

Yup! No matter what, I will be buying a domain name and removing ads. If this place gets to be busy, I'll look into improving speed. I've heard there are ways that you can export the forum off of smfforfree, which would probably make things faster. I'll need Wes to help me with this stuff, as I'm fairly incompetent when it comes to that. xD

But I do agree, membership is a key issue. Affiliations would also be nice... I'll look into that.

I am too recent to know what needs to be improved, but I noticed that in the Tabs bar of my browser Ludicom has a blank Icon.
Nothing really important, but it caught my eye right away Tongue.

Would you mind PMing me a screenshot so I can see exactly what we're dealing with? I'm not having any issues, but if it's an issue on my end, I'd love to fix it for you. Cheesy

A quick reply box maybe. So we don't have to press the reply button and go to a whole new screen for short replies.

Rosim's talking about the favicon.
I could do a favicon but I don't know how you place it in smfforfree.
I know how to do it when making an HTML website but forums are different since they're just based on something or whatever.

There's one. You have to activate it in your settings.

This is optional, I think. I just went in the Look options, and I think it was there.

And I will post the screenshot in a moment.

Correct. You can activate it under the Look and Layout section in your Profile menu. I made it optional so that people can customize based on their preferences.

Mmk. I'm sure Mag knows what he's talking about xP

Sorry I did not see this post.
Yes, I guess I am talking about that.

Already discussed. Can't be added without me buying the permission to do so (sucks, I know).

It's a better use of my money to move the forum elsewhere, then just add it in ourselves. Hit two birds with one stone, yeah? Smiley If this place stays afloat after I add in the domain name and the ad free stuff, I'll continue to update it if it seems to be looking okay. I'll have to put a price limit on how much I want to put into L-com, though. If it stays tiny like this, I probably won't put too much in at first, and just add as it grows.

I wonder if anything I just said makes sense xD

My own forum Spiriteam is free and it allows currency, so it can be done without buying.
