Okay this is gonna take a while

tumblr_or495dcOOI1wr1tcto1_500.gif

 

First off all written here is just MY opinion and not the one of the other admins.

 

About "FORUM":

To not make this long just look up what i wrote in the Staff section.

But a TLDR; For now we will keep it English no other special language sub-forums.

 

About "CHAT":

NO i am against that the chat should stay how it is. More chats will just make it confusing and people from other chats will still come to the main English chat and ask for help and what not.

Because the other chats tent to get less people chatting so the feel like they need INSTA help. Trust me i am coming from a forum with Mulit-Lang chats and it always ends like that.

And if you really need something than you can ask it on the Forums that's what it is for and not the Chatbox.

 

About "NGR COINS":

If there will be more Paid Awards sure we can adjust that.

 

About "STORE": 

Backgrounds: Should stay like there are no reason to hide em behind a paywall or what not. Everyone has the same options so nobody feels left out.

About the frame i have already thought about giving this ONLY to Donators and the Staff will look into it. 

Signature: Everyone is free to use his own avatar ne reason to have that also behind a paywall seems just pointless to me. 

Themes: There is already enough themes to choose from and @ckv1212 and myself are working a a new one. Users can't upload them anyway thats just something Admins can do over the AdminCP

Emotes same as above. I already add emotes from time to time and i am always open for requests from the members.

Free Awards : What you listed is just way to much for my taste i would be okay with something more General like: Sony,Nintendo,Sega,Microsoft,SNK,Atari etc

Paid Awards:  Most of those sound good to me would just need someone to make the little icons for us and i am sure we can put em up.

 

About "CONTESTS"

I am not sure what you mean by that? Something like a SOTM (Signature of the Month) concept?

I would say contests about "Make a Emote" or "Make a Award" where you win NGR Coins for beeing the winner and getting the Award/Emote added should be okay.

 

About "DONATION MILESTONES"

We have something planed for milestones but first off we need donations to get in the 50$ now took almost the whole life-time of the site.

Leechers ain't the best donators ^^

And as i said already above i am against the idea of unlocking Backgrounds etc.

 

About "DONATIONS"

I don't like that idea at all feels kinda shitty towards the normal user that there might be stuff locked behind a paywall.

If i where a user in such a forum i would probably leave and look for one without that kind of stuff.

 

Like mentioned above in the "Frame" part i think about adding a colored frame with a custom Usergroup for Donators.

That would be something like this:

10$: Brown Frame and Small Donor group

30$: Silver Frame and Donor group

100$: Gold Frame and Big Donor group

200$: IDK yet frame and Forum Donor God group

 

About "EXCLUSIVE DONATOR/VIP LINKS"

Like mentioned above i am not a fan of this idea at all so this would make this pointless.

 

About "TOPIC/POSTS CREATION"

This is a Part for @ckv1212 as he manges that Part of the Forums so all mentions go to him

I don't wanna fuck anything up :lul: 

 

About "ACHIEVEMENTS"

Sounds just like Awards to me like the ones you get for reaching a REP Level that we have right now.

I am sure we can add more of those but how hard that would be no idea again @ckv1212 would be the one to ask.

 

 

And to close this off a few words off me direct.

I liked quite a few of the ideas and i hope i don't went to rude on you when i was/am against something. If you feel so than please excuse me :<3: that was not my intention to make you feel so.

Thanks for the constructive feedback! Now let me explain!

My text will be formated like this \\BLUE COLOR, BOLD AND IN ALL CAPS

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

About "STORE": 

Backgrounds: Should stay like there are no reason to hide em behind a paywall or what not. Everyone has the same options so nobody feels left out. \\THESE BACKGROUNDS WOULD BE OFFICIAL BACKGROUNDS NOT COMMON BACKGROUNDS, THOSE WOULD BE UNLOCKABLE WITH NGR COINS, NGR COINS HAVE ALMOST NO MEANING AT PRESENT TIME SO THIS WOULD INCENTIVIZE USERS TO USE THE STORE AND GET NGR COINS!

About the frame i have already thought about giving this ONLY to Donators and the Staff will look into it. \\I'M FINE WITH THIS BEING A DONATORS ONLY FEATURES

Signature: Everyone is free to use his own avatar ne reason to have that also behind a paywall seems just pointless to me. \\AGAIN THESE WOULD BE OFFICIAL SIGNATURES, THE USERS COULD STILL UPLOAD THEIR OWN, BUT IF THEY WANT TO USE NGR'S DESIGNS THEY GOTTA BUY THEM

Themes: There is already enough themes to choose from and @ckv1212 and myself are working a a new one. Users can't upload them anyway thats just something Admins can do over the AdminCP \\EXACTLY USERS SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO UPLOAD THEM THEMSELVES, THEMES WOULD ONLY BE ADDED IF A USER WON A CONTEST, THE SIMPLER THEMES WOULD BE BOUGHT THROUGH NGR COINS, THE COOLER ONES WOULD BE BOUGHT THROUGH DONATION MILESTONES

Emotes same as above. I already add emotes from time to time and i am always open for requests from the members. \\ONCE AGAIN, HIDING SOME EMOTES BEHIND THE STORE WOULD INCENTIVIZE THE USERS TO SAVE COINS AND USE THE STORE, TO "UPGRADE" THEIR SITE'S EXPERIENCE, EMOTES AND PACKS WOULD ONLY BE ADDED IF A USER WON A CONTEST

Free Awards : What you listed is just way to much for my taste i would be okay with something more General like: Sony,Nintendo,Sega,Microsoft,SNK,Atari etc \\THIS IS VERY UNDERSTANDABLE, SO I SEE YOUR POINT

Paid Awards:  Most of those sound good to me would just need someone to make the little icons for us and i am sure we can put em up. \\AWESOME! GLAD YOU LIKED THEM

 

About "CONTESTS"

I am not sure what you mean by that? Something like a SOTM (Signature of the Month) concept? \\I MEANT, THE USERS WHO APPLIED TO THE CONTEST WOULD CREATE A SIGNATURE FOR THE FORUM, THE STAFF WOULD PICK THE BEST SIGNATURE AND MAKE IT OFFICIAL, THAT MEANS IT WOULD BE BOUGHT THROUGH THE STORE, AND IF THE DESIGN WAS REALLY REALLY COOL IT WOULD BE UNLOCKED THROUGH A DONATION MILESTONE, THE WINNER WOULD GET A NGR COIN PRIZE AND HIS SUBMITTED CONTENT UNLOCKED FOR FREE, SO HE/SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO BUY HIS/HER OWN WORK, EVEN IF IT IS FOR DONATORS ONLY

I would say contests about "Make a Emote" or "Make a Award" where you win NGR Coins for beeing the winner and getting the Award/Emote added should be okay. \\AWESOME! 2 THINGS YOU'RE OK WITH xD

 

About "DONATIONS"

I don't like that idea at all feels kinda shitty towards the normal user that there might be stuff locked behind a paywall. \\PLEASE DON'T MISUNDERSTAND ME, THESE USERS WOULDN'T GET EXCLUSIVE CONTENT, ONLY EXCLUSIVE LINKS, SO EACH GAME WOULD HAVE A NORMAL LINK LIKE "MEGA" AND THEN AN OFFICIAL LINK FOR THESE USERS TO DOWNLOAD FROM, THEY WOULD BE CONTRIBUTING TO THE SITE AND THE FILE HOST ACCOUNT SO THEY DESERVE A "BONUS"

 

Like mentioned above in the "Frame" part i think about adding a colored frame with a custom Usergroup for Donators.

That would be something like this:

10$: Brown Frame and Small Donor group \\NOT BROWN! BRONZE!!!

30$: Silver Frame and Donor group

100$: Gold Frame and Big Donor group

200$: IDK yet frame and Forum Donor God group \\DIAMOND COLOR DUH! OR PLATINUM xD, BUT THAT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO DIFERENTIATE FROM SILVER

 

About "EXCLUSIVE DONATOR/VIP LINKS"

Like mentioned above i am not a fan of this idea at all so this would make this pointless. \\ALREADY COMMENTED AND EXPLAINED ON "DONATIONS"

 

About "ACHIEVEMENTS"

Sounds just like Awards to me like the ones you get for reaching a REP Level that we have right now. \\ACHIEVEMENTS ARE NOT QUITE LIKE AWARDS, BECAUSE AWARDS YOU HAVE TO BUY/UNLOCK WITH NGR COINS, ACHIEVEMENTS YOU HAVE TO DO ACTIONS IN THE FORUM, THEY'RE VERY DIFFERENT, WHAT DOES "LOGIN DURING CHRISTMAS 2017" HAVE TO DO WITH "MY FIRST AWARD (10 NGR COINS)"?

I am sure we can add more of those but how hard that would be no idea again @ckv1212 would be the one to ask.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hope I made you understand my way of thinking better, and you might not like paywalls but sometimes they're necessary and these are not that intrusive, they don't affect the users experience at all they're all cosmetic except for the exclusive 5$ per month premium links

Overall I like most of the things you say, except the paywall and to be honest the only reason I become an active member of this forum was due to the lack of them and the spirit of keeping the forum as clean as possible (aggressive adds, windows that pop up, click three times just to see a post then another 3 times to get a link, so on). The only incentive should be to help the forum not to get extra stuff, but in this is the admins desition.

About the language chat im against it, it would alienate users, but the sub-forum sections may work, just not sure if is worth implementing them now (like how many X speakers are on the forum ? hard to tell at this moment) but I think is worth planning to check pros/cons.

Anyway any and every opinion is always welcome, it bring new light to topics we havent even think about it or possible solutions to the ones we have.

 

ps. I kind of dig the brown frame.

My tired burning eyes can't read all of that right now but I think the chat is fine as is.  I like the idea of having more buyable stuff like frames, themes, and avatar borders though.  A lot of this stuff was mentioned in another thread, I think.  My sleep deprived brain can't remember where at the moment though.  Most of all I think the shop needs work..to be honest, I forgot it existed. 

Like Fixy said, I also like this forum because it's chill and down to earth with no scary ads or gross banners to duck around. ^.^

Avi is a keeper member I see, lots of energy and ideas, can't let leave! Stay and play with us! :D

I'm also against ads, that's why we must find a way to make users WANT to donate, and people will want to donate if they get cool COSMETIC stuff that doesn't affect other users and doesn't give them any advantage!

That's another story for the monthly paying users, who'd get exclusive access to a private and official host server, that's what they're paying for though... KEEP IN MIND other users would still get access to mega.nz links or whatever.

Example:

Official uploader posts would contain an exclusive link only accessable by monthly paying users and a mega.nz link for normal users

I think trying to profit from the "content" available on here, at all, from a forum of this nature, could be a risky feature.  Since the paying downloaders would receive "special links" to a "private host", that puts the forum donations into the category of "paying for content" instead of paying for the forum.

I think the donation system works nicely, since it can be specifically kept under the form of a "tip" for the forum itself that is specifically used for the forum's monthly bandwidth/server costs.  

If I'm reading your post right, you are suggesting that the administration adds a "premium download service" for users that pay monthly on here?  Paying for "premium uploads" at all, in my opinion, easily gets into the territory of profiting off of the "content" here, and less so the forum itself.  That could, I think, cause unnecessary problems for the administration.  Because, you know, once money is involved, things always get more tricky..

As for deleting whole topics, I think that should be left to the mod/admin teams.  I think that is what the Graveyard is for anyway.  In the case of mods being too lazy or overburdened, they could just take on more mods that don't mind clicking on a button to move a thread.  ^^;

ACHIEVEMENTS

This would be a new system and i have no idea if it is hard to implement or if it is even possible, all the unlocked achievements would appear in the user's profile and upon unlocking an achievement the user would get a reward in NGR Coins, the user could also pick 1 achievement to display in their post info in general  (where user name/avatar/status/group is located)

Posts

  • My first Post - Make 1 Post (+5 NGR coins)
  • Ten Posts - Make 10 Posts (+15 NGR coins)
