I already raised the limit to 3,500. There is a chance moderators might have a different limit than regular users, though.

How about an Elite 4! If this idea does happen, can I be one because I had the idea?

The Elite 4 has already been discussed as a Gym League addition in the future, so you're not suggesting anything new.

Rotom, that question is best suited to private message. However, to save having to send one, the answer is no.

That within the next chat release, we get a official RP room. That, or disable the use of /me, because people have used it to turn main into roleplaying central.

What's wrong with the RP section on the forums? Or the /b/uizel section?

Because sometimes it is too private to be mentioned. But I do see where you're coming from, maybe a brief description. Very brief..

This is involving the Gym Badges, and I'm not sure if you (Freeze) are still working on them, but is there anyway they could be made a bit more... noticeable?

It may just be me, but I don't think there is a place to actually look at people's badges, and the link to give them out always kind of escapes me. It would be nice to have them somewhere someone could actually look at them. (and if they already are somewhere like that, a simple link would suffice as a fair response)

See the Quick Links at the top bar? Click that then press My Badges.
Plus they're on everyone's profile, just press the Community tab.
Kinda noticeable, just gotta know where to look. :\

Freeze did ask me to make miniaturized versions of the badges for displaying in this^ little bit above a post. Not sure if he's gonna implement them but... eh.

Suggestion:
I'm not sure if this has been suggested before, but anyway, a random idea just came to my mind.

With all the new remixers joining the forum, why not host a monthly remix contest?

If you feel like you can organize and run a whole contest for remixes, then there's no problem to hold one yourself. Before you decide to do that, though, be sure to contact someone like Cat to approve your idea first. Also, making a poll asking members about their opinion for a contest of remixes gives you a good idea of how accepted it is.

I suggest we get a new board (or two boards) similar to the TCoD's laughing/crying cupboards.

I've been grinding BP in the Battle Tower lately, and it occured to me that we really don't have a place to share battle videos. Although we do have the Battle & Trade boards, we don't really have a place to put battle videos, or warstories (example of a warstory found here) I suggest a Sub-Board to Battle and Trade to exhibit and rate each others' battles.

Hm, do you think it would be okay to simply start with a single thread, and if it proves popular, then we could create a board for it? Something like "The Official Battle Videos Thread" could work, perhaps?

That sounds like an alright idea. Make it a sticky thread in Battle and Trading or something to that effect, right?

Relating to that last suggestion about the battle video forums, maybe there should be an Official VR Battles account on Youtube. An entire Youtube account just dedicated to recorded battles of VR members.

Well, technically there is. It's just no one runs it anymore. I can't even remember who started it. If we really wanted someone to do it again though, we'd probably need someone with a DS Capture Card, for better quality than just a video camera.

There should be a competitive battle thread and in it there should be a warstory thread.

I suggest we add three boards into Artwork, Music, Fan-Fiction and Other Media: Images, Audio, and Video. Or something of the like, because it's filled with mostly sprite and signature shops.

I certainly agree that there should be a separate board specifically for sprite and signature shops.

This isn't really a suggestion, but do you guys plan on adding B/W Pokemon to the user ranks. If you do maybe you can increase the number of posts a user needs to get the specific rank and maybe add new ranks.

If this was already spoken about, or suggested I'm sorry for not payin' attention. <_<

Great idea. I second this. And to Shinycrobat's suggestion: can we wait until english names, so a better majority of our users can understand them? Of course, I'm fine with it either way.

Post ranks and staff ranks have already been discussed between staff, and (I think) we've decided on changing them once B/W are released internationally.

Make an Metroid board in "Other Video Game Forums"? It just seems like it should be done.

I think there should be a sub-forum for Game Corner called Mafia, dedicated to that game.
I saw one on Butterfree's tCoD forums, and it looks really fun.

I don't really believe that we need a sub-board just for this game, since Victory Road isn't a forums dedicated to Mafia mostly, and you won't find the majority of members interested in this sub-board. This leads the sub-board to inactivity. It is better to relate any topic of this game to usual Gaming board, where it will sty active.

I'm pretty sure things about the site chat would go on here.

Basically, fix the reverse posting issue on the site chat. It's too often when I go to put two posts in a row, and then it lags enough while posting the first one to let me type up the second post, then they come up as posted at the same time and they're reversed.

Also fonts on the site chat would be nice.

VR doesn't need to be a Mafia-dedicated forum for it to be successful: just look at TCoD, its Mafia is HUGE even though it is only a small part of the site. But without anywhere to call its own, it would be thrust deep into the background by the other games.

The thing is, do we have enough Mafia fans for the sub-forum to be successful? If the answer is yes, then the idea may become more valid for discussion, as there's no need to create a sub-forum which will barely have any thread in it.

Ehm... I don't know if this is already suggested or just plain stupid, but I saw that Bulbapedia doesn't have an article about 'our' forum. Maybe we could create one?
It would be pretty cool to have one, and maybe a good advertisement.
So who's with me? (It's hard to create an entire article by yourself, you know!)

EDIT: I moved this post here because The Spirit of Time told me too.

Sounds like a valid idea. However, the article will need to be properly written and include a brief glimpse of the most important information about the forums, such as its history. This can be a consuming task to the staff's effort and time, but I won't deny that the end result will ultimately be rewarding.

Alright, you can do that. However, you're not really /debating/ anything by asking people about their opinions, so I think the Gaming forum will be a better place.

That's true, but if we make two groups, one with more experienced users who collect information and history, and one with less experienced users (like me) who write the article, it shouldn't be to time consuming. However, if we want this plan to succeed, we do need concrete action. Shall I make a poll to see who would like to join the project? And if so, where can I do that?

Don't worry; I have already raised the suggestion to all the other staff members, and we're currently discussing it. We'll keep you updated as soon as we reach a consensus.

Okay! Nice. I hope it'll go through. It'll be much work, but probably worth it. Maybe we could copy/paste the article on Wikipedia and Pokemonwiki too. (Or slightly change it.)

I think there should be a sub-forum for farewells, because I have seen lots of people post farewells in introductions.

A sub-forums just for farewells is not appropriate. We already have a thread in which you can say bye.

I think we should have custom user titles. It'd be a better place to put a little joke or whatever than my location or signature.

It's just one of those things I decided early on that I wasn't going to allow folks to edit themselves. I can't really explain at the moment.

(I'm a bit tired, so that last message might've sounded a bit harsh.)

I want to be able to edit our own threads' titles. I have a thread called "Merry Christmas from Hihidaruma." Well, that's obsolete now, and nobody's changed it yet. (Uh, any staff member reading this feel free to change that please.)

I don't think that is even possible. Unless you will be promoted to the moderator rank just to edit your titles.

I support this, and it is, as far as I know, rather simple to implement via the usergroups.

I understand the reason for having the "Show/Hide Full Signature" buttons, but would it be possible to implement a button to automatically select larger signatures to be viewed in their fullest? It's kind of a little bit of a pain in my twees to have to click "Show Full" on every signature, only to have to do about half of it over again on the next page.

You'd have to ask Freeze about that one, but I know quite a few (high-posting) users take the liberty to rack up nice 600-pixel-tall signatures in there. You sure you want to endure those every single time the post goes by after you saw it fifty times?

My goodness, I know I dont really have authority here to decide anything, but just saying, implementing that idea would KILL anyone that browses VR on a handheld device (phone, DS, iPod, etc.). My phone already takes ages to load a thread on VR. 90% of the loading is all signatures. Im not sure about other mobile device users, but for some strange reason, my DS and phone show random signatures in full automatically.

Actually, don't think of it that way because you'd need to enable it first, so it'd be your fault if you implemented it and surfed on a browser that couldn't handle it.

Oh, and I think that Vel's idea should be implemented. HOWEVER, there must be a blacklisting feature....if that's even possible. Basically you'd enable it but would be able to put in usernames into a list that'd make their signature appear in the smaller format.

It would in fact be quite simple - I can do it later today.

Isn't that just a bit overcomplicated? xD

Better scenario:
  • Click button to show all signatures by default.
  • Click button to show /this/ signature in shrink mode!


(We just have the reverse right now )

You can disable the showing of signatures under "Edit Options" in the User CP.

I generally use the New Posts feature to see new posts, but it's several pages long. Would it be possible to add a "Mark Thread As Read" option so they won't appear in the New Posts anymore...or at least until there's a new post afterwards?

Currently the only way to remove them from that list is to post in the thread.

But we don't have options to block images and smilies in signatures...

Either way, thanks- loads 100 times faster on my Wii, PC, and 3DS!

Newsletter, awesome to see it up, but the text was the same color as the background.

I'm not sure if im the only one, but think I saw someone else posting about this too.

Edit: Oh yes, suggestion.. Almost forgot ._.

Change the BG color maybe? I'm thinking dark blue (Same tone as the FBlue theme). Grey does look rather pretty on dark blue IMO.


Other Edit: Oh, nevermind, the theme I'm using makes all the text come out as grey.

Another Suggestion: Make the newsletter compatible with the FBlue theme. I do love that dark bluey-ness

Not possible with vBulletin as far as I know, and its beyond my reach of modding expertise. I'd be curious if somebody could find a mod that did that, though.

I heard about one for vB 4.0 but we will never switch to that!

Honestly, if you know anything about vBulletin, you'd understand me. I'll look around the internet. When I'm not making remixes that are slowly reaching PRS's quality.

I'm not completely sure I understand what you're insinuating... however, I do know more than enough to know that the following would break/have to be painfully migrated should we upgrade to vBulletin 4:

  • All Styles
  • Most (if not all) Modifications
  • Most (if not all) Template Modifications
  • And a crapload of other stuff.


There actually is a reason, believe it or not. Nor does vB 4.0 offer any overly enticing features that would make switching any more beneficial.

Joking/Still partly serious suggestion: Shouldn't March 6th and 4th should be marked on the VR Calendar?

As far as I know, Victory Road's Calender mark the important days of the current month. In other words, the days marked are all related to February. Once March starts, the Calender will mark both of these days.

Actually, the part at the bottom of the index shows all upcoming events for the next 30 days, and you can add a date to the VR Calendar for any month at any time. I've just added Black and White's release dates to the calendar.

I would like a personal notepad in my user CP. I used to have one back at the cave of dragonflies and it was really useful.

Also: I want my gender to be visible with my username. I'm kinda tired of people thinking I'm a girl.

You're wish has been granted.

(I considered coding the Memo mod myself as well, but I'm sure it'd just be reinventing the wheel.)

Instead of just text, could we get some fancy schmancy icons instead?

I second this. I would like to see the ♂ and ♀ icons, and maybe something like a question mark for undisclosed or not show it at all.

I could make those images, if you wanted.
Also could the little green light that is next to your name go blue if your on the chat? I'm tired of trying to VM people when they are chatting and I don't know it.

I would like the ability to upload XPS files. I have made a thread that I want to upload an XPS file of mine in, but can't. XPS files are created when you print to Microsoft Office (Document/Image(Depends on Windows Version) Writer. I know that Windows XP and up have the program needed to view these files already installed as part of the OS.

I don't have a way to make PDFs. If there was a program that could convert XPS files to PDF files, I don't know about it.

EDIT: Just found some through a Google search.

If it helps, you can do it in Microsoft Office 2007+ as well.

If not already installed: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...displaylang=en

...In all fairness, there is reason not to do so: Mac users can't read them, but nearly everybody can read a PDF. (The same applies to Windows 2000)
