You know how users tend to have around 9 to 25 Pokéadoptables in their signatures?
Why not code a "Level Up All Adopts Button" for signatures that have 6 or more adopts?

I believe that would defeat the purpose by showing that you're not taking the effort for someone else to level their pets up. *shrugs*

Besides, VRAC is still one of the fastest sites to level up pets. Most others require confirming every single click on every single pet.

Hey, Cat, have you ever though about handing off style design to someone else? Dark Illusionist is getting old.

I have thought about it, yes, but I didn't entirely design Dark Illusionist to begin with.

Heh, I know A'bom did it with aplomb!

Hmm... This might be a good opportunity to have some fun with the basic styles, huh? Even changing just the colour scheme and the banner would give the style choices a lot more variety at this point.

I was thinking that we could have a 2012 census. You know, just to record our active members here of 2012. Easiest way to conduct it would be to just ask people to post in a thread saying that they were active this year. With this we will know the "population" of the VR community.

That could work, but it does vary a lot. Unlike the world population, it goes both up and down, and it might happen to be a really active or really dead month and make the stats appear weird.

I suggest another Tournament maybe? With the new releases of BW 2, it should be an interesting one

I tried hosting a tournament in August, but nobody showed up for that one so in order to get a tourney up and running, you'd need to get a lot of people committed to showing up.

I'm gonna add a suggestion/bump this thread by asking for a community bonding game or something. Like people who participate in the event will split into teams that are randomly selected and there will be things to do for like maybe a month? New activities each week? It'l be like a competitive thing too.. (I got this idea from another forum, I really like it though)

I support this idea, but would it be purely limited to Pokemon games or will any game be able for this idea?

Clans could do something like this, to help build them. I don't think it is a good idea as a regular thing for us, though I would participate anyways.

No I'm not saying as a regular thing. Maybe a once every year thing. On whatever Victory Road's Birthday is (The day/month it was created in) and stuff

VR's birthday is November 30, 2006 (my join date). What kind of events do you have in mind, specifically?

Hmph, I could've sworn I posted them already. But anyways, as a cool Birthday Party sort of thing, the members participating (Probably should consist of people who have been here for at least a month or more) would compete in little activities that get judged once a week. The highest point-scoring team at the end of the maybe 3 cycles will win a prize. Perhaps an adoptable, or something everybody can receive. As for what those activities are? Maybe a riddle, a trivia of Victory Road's past, creating a team name, team banner, team emblem, earning a spot on top 10 for an arcade game, spirit points, etc. Cat, may I PM you about more info? That is, only if you are interested.

Think we should go with yet another slogan this year, perhaps with input via a contest?

Has anyone suggest some sort of Donaters/Reward/VIP survice to this forum? You get it by meeting requirements set (an amount of posts, donate money, do a task) and it lasts the set amount of time. With ityou get exclusive things such as: extra self-clicks (VRAC), access to a secret part of the forum, A new rank, a special adopt, etc.

I think it would be a fun thing to have and aim for.

Hey, could you put the Usersearch in under Search or Quick Links. I think I would have an easier time finding it.

That is very situational. However, I still don't think it's worth a menu slot under the menu...

It'd be a bit handy to be able to see where the board activity is at a glance, though.

It has been more than a year since the last motto contest. Now I am not saying to specifically having a motto contest, but I suggest having something like that. It was fun and got the community involved with the forum, so I think it would be nice to have something like that again.

It was already suggested Plaz. And the closest thing to an answer was that it might appear in a birthday event.

Think an alternate spoiler tag could be in order? Something that, instead of putting things in a spoiler box, makes them black-on-black and requires manual highlighting to be viewed. Perhaps an option for click-to-reveal is in order, too.

(Of course, this works with only text)

A forum reader app would be of little purpose on iOS and Android, as the built in browsers are fully capable of using the full site and all of its features.

I also loathe Xcode.

Perhaps, a user option to force a certain font to be in use for the forum themes? Sometimes I feel like, you know, going with the BBS theme... but not wanting the fixed-width font in use.

Forum skins are not on Cat's list of priorities right now. I asked for a Legend of Zelda skin a long time ago and there hasn't been a word on it ever since.

What if, say, the video game section had its own conversation thread? It'd probably a good place for the small things in gaming (maybe something that's a bit more personal and/or just "there"). Same for tech...

You can most certainly create one yourself. (Besides, when I create threads like that I almost never have a good ice-breaker. )

I'd create that thread myself if it weren't for my sworn oath to never create new threads again unless I specifically have to.

Why don't you just like do the thing for the general conversation about anything thread? Just say the rules and like one thing relevant to you.

How about an award or badge system? This way members can be thanked and appreciated for their posts and time spent on the forums. Also, this allows those who beat a certain gym in the forum's league to have it officially up and posted for everyone else on the forums to see!

We used to have an award system, but I didn't like it and could never think of good awards. There is a badge system, but I had no clue how to use it (coded by an ex-admin) and disabled it.

A lot of vBulletin forums have an /activity.php or /portal.php page. Why don't we?

An activity viewer would be depressing when we're in a slump, and I haven't really seen the need for a portal page.

Is there a way to make this forum mobile friendly? I feel that would help increase activity here, since everyone is on their phone now a days.
