Feature Request:
A few more info fields for titles, although it does get away from the site ideal of just preserving softwate:

  • Does the game / app require the original media to be inserted ? Or can you use a locked, mounted dsc image in Toast, or a locked, mounted disc image in Disk Copy / Utility too, or can you just do a full install and not need the CD at all.
  • Compatibility under Mac OS Classic
  • Does the game CD carry an Audio CD part ? ie. Civ II, AoE, Sam & Max.
  • Is it a hybrid Mac / PC image ?
  • what sort of upload do we have ? Original media image ? Warez media image (perhaps missing the Audio CD or PC part) ? Installer only ? Installed files only ? etc.
  • I'd also like to provide links to the MobyGames, AllGame and IMG pages relating to the game, IMG may have a review and another page for a preview, etc.

I've noticed on more than one occasion after logging in, if I visit several pages I can lose my logged-in status, but if I go to a page that shows my avitar, it still shows me as being logged in (green orb) even though I would need to re-log-in to be able to edit a page etc.

Just like now, before making this reply post Smile

@Vitoarc:

Yes, though there are a few layout glitches that are yet to be fixed.

I see that uploading screens and manuals using Safari is now fixed. Smile

All that clicking must be *exhausting* Tongue

Yeah. Likely its my (slightly) incompatible browser (SeaMonkey). It seems to be less clicks to login if I use Firefox Sad

Another feature request: An ability to turn off forum topics you aren't interested in - wishfully thinking Wink

That's a cool idea, though it would help if the rating system were expanded from "out of 5" to "out of 10."

Another feature request,

looks like the site records how I rate games,
can that be added to a user profile page, say their 10 highest rated and 5 lowest rated games ?

Just an idea.

Ah, a short but sweet one: when in the forum threads which runs in the new design, the authors join date is much more apparent than the comments publish date.

I love you all here, some spammers a little less perhaps, some troll even lesser, but the main focus here is to get the latest comment in a thread IMHO. 8)

I was typing "a href" wrong! I typed "a herf".

ROFL You probably didn't even spring a "CaPtChA" with that. Maybe I'm not the only one that can do such excellent typo's Laughing out loud

For the To Do topic; It now takes me (on average) four clicks to log in.

1). If I'm only browsing (and not logged in) then read something interesting so decide to log in to comment, I click the "login" link in page. OK so far...
2). I get taken to my user login page, I need to click the "Log in" button on my user login page.
3). Page refreshes, I notice the "login" link at top of page (still) AND "Log in" button below, so I'm not logged in yet and I'm still on my user login page.
4). Click "Log in" button yet again. Now get logged in (but doesn't take me back to point of where I wanted to log in).

Then (finally) manually I need to navigate back to where I wanted to be logged in, in the 1st place.

It would be great if we could click a "log in" link and just be "logged in" at that point.

I'll try < h2 >
EDIT: what's the tag for links(like to another website)?
Thanks

Ever tried Looking - at the RAW code or underlying HTML to any of these posts?

Especially if someone appears to be doing something with any of the visible text in the Wiki pages that causes you to ask yourself; "How was that done?" Hmmm...?

As for that "what's the tag?"... Perhaps at its most basic and after that perhaps some that are a little more complex? 8-)

Oh, now I see it! Two little quote thingies at the beginning. I've missed seeing it since the contrast is very low. Personally I prefer a highlighted box which surrounds the entire quoted text. But that's just me.

LOL
How do i write in normal bold?

Thanks for setting me straight on block quotes Smile .

A small, text only "About Me" on the home profile would be nice. Not urgent. Members can list what type of hardware they have etc. etc. etc.

Also, it would be nice to add HTML in comments, to quote. Example: [quote]This site is looking good.[/quote]

Please make uploading from all browers on the market possible - old and new.

"All browsers" might be a tall order... but yes, compatibility with some of the more common browsers on different platforms would be great.

I'll even volunteer to test anything in that direction if possible. I'd like to see SeaMonkey fully supported.
