Qualna's Fancy New Suggestions

Post by Qualna on Tue Jun 28, 2011 6:41 pm

Just some ideas I had for improving the site.

Problem Presented: It seems that a new punishment system is in order. Most offenders won't learn their lesson from a simple kick, and in some cases a full on ban will be too harsh.
Possible Solution: Institute a blacklisting system. In this system, those who make offenses or breaks the rules on a repeated basis will be put on the list with scores on how intense their offense is. Those put on the list will be restricted from certain site privileges (joining clans, participating in site wars, tournaments, posting rights, etc. That is up to the admins to decide on that extent). This will deter rulebreakers from making new accounts, as it would seem impractical to make a new stealth account just because one can't compete in tournaments. (Also place a posting/join-date limit on said activities to further reinforce this system)

Problem Presented: Normal members don't seem to trust the administration.
Possible Solution: Hire a public relations staff. I don't mean people are just nice in general, I mean those that will go OUT OF THEIR WAY and take the INITIATIVE to befriend members and lend a sympathetic ear. This will instill a relation of trust, and increase the appreciation of our management.

Problem Presented: People have problems, but won't spill out with it.
Possible Solution: Start an anonymous asking booth topic. An appointed admin or mod will start a topic telling people to PM them their grievances or problems and address them in the topic without revealing the sender's name. This will give members a stronger sense of security in dealing with the things/people they have trouble with.

Problem Presented: Posting Inactivity. It seems there aren't enough topics that seem to be worth replying to, whether it's something trivial, lacking intellect, or topics that aren't controversial enough.
Possible Solution: It seems the more intellectual are the ones having this grievance and are the ones that has an issue with it. Well, if it bothers you so much, then you can go ahead and make a topic that will spark up discerned interest. It can be regarding global news, popular controversies (be careful of this one), or an interesting story in the Scribe's Corner. I don't have a strong problem with this issue, I just wish people would actually think before posting, and formulate their sentences to make it not seem like it was typed by a four-year-old.

Problem Presented: Clans not having enough significance.
Possible Solution: We have a clan system for people to join, but ultimately, so what? It doesn't seem like people are getting anything out of it, and there hasn't been enough feudal heat to start up clan wars. I propose we make a rewarding system, promoting the most dominant clan in a given period. Granting Dream Tokens to the winners of wars, and making a scoreboard to give a clan a record they can be proud of.

Problem Presented: We're a competetive battling site. Where the hell is our league?
Possible Solution: Well it's obvious isn't it? Start the applications, hire 8-12 gym leaders and the Elite Four, and give the intended purpose back to this site. It doesn't matter if we don't have enough participating members, what matters is that it has to be THERE.

Problem Presented: Not enough chatbox activity. I really wish we didn't have to sit there putting periods and slashes just because we don't have anything to say.
Possible Solution: Host chatbox events. I remember performing a live IS session one day and it kept the players busy for a good hour or so. I'm not saying it has to be an IS, it could be a trivial quiz, or some type of scavenger hunt. I don't know. But this is an area that just begs for creativity.

That's all I have for now. This topic may be updated as I address more issues.

I, for one, am starting to resent the resistance going on around here. These are some great ideas, and I am the first one to post even though the entire site knows about this. That's pretty lame, guys. Affirm Qualna's ideas, or at least give suggestions. Geez.

To go off your lack of forum activity concept, its a matter of knowing who your demographic is. Appealing to even a small amount of members may Inspire others to write about THEIR own interests. I know it's very common with me.

I definitely think we could use that blacklist idea. That's the one that really sticks out in the set as something we urgently need. The public relations and anonymous booth are high up there too. Great ideas overall.

I agree with both of you on the Blacklist.

About the blacklist idea...
Does forumotion have a warn meter? I'm not sure if it does (it might) ... but a warn meter solves that o3o If somebody breaks a rule etc., they get warned x% for it and once the warn meter is at 100% that person is banned for y amount of time. And at certain points, they lose some privileges automatically without admins having to do it.


*huggles myBB* The warn meter is amazing =w=

Korasi, I have sent you a PM in reply to your last post as to not turn this useful thread into an argument. The parts of our posts that did not contribute to the discussion have been edited or deleted.
