Jul 23 2010, 8:51 am Wormer Post #121



Ah, I'm not sure you've seen my edit. I'll better split it then:

Another opinion of mine adjoins this very close. Because there is still a possibility to change nicknames, I wish there was a way to link to members in posts. That is especially necessary when people looking through old threads. I myself often look through old favorite threads of mine. Sometimes it's impossible to sort out who refers who, if you don't know that beforehand. For example, let's say I want to address Demented Shaman. But tomorrow he becomes devilesk and the day after tomorrow he become someone else. What I do is this: "Hello, [name:Demented Shaman]!" (the syntax is not really important). The way my post is representing to the public then changes each time the user changes his name. There also may be a link to the user's profile at this place.

If you've quoted a member and then he changes his name the quotebox will show the member's old name, but it still links to the members profile which will show you his current name. I don't see the problem.

Here is the very core of the problem. Tell me please, whom have I quoted there? :bleh:

You need either to know this or click on the user's name in the quote. The problem it's not evident from the topic and the thread text itself (unless I click and go back, which costs me additional effort, time and patience).

Still, sometimes I want to refer to a person without quoting. For example in the very end (Post Scriptum) of this post. (Edit: or even right there!)

EDIT:
Well, I probably can see logic in the current solution. I've quoted DiscipleOfAdun and referred to him as to the DoA in the linked post. The integrity of the post is hence intact. However I still do need to click nickname to figure out that 1) the quote is from the current thread and 2) he is the person who posted few posts above.

This is of course no way a huge vital problem, but rather another important piece in the puzzle which makes the whole thing look cleaner and logical.

@Wormer: It'd be a good idea to show "Quote from <new> (formerly <old>)", but that's PHP. Dev or IP'll have to do that.

Guys, when I revamp the Forum Index... should we keep the old bubbly style, or do something like this?

'Cause I've noticed a few complaints about the bubble style; figured I'd offer an alternative.

If you guys don't like that, would just the header design in that image (-----\____/-----) be fine? Because the current header design (/------\_____) is surprisingly difficult to code. :P

(That image is a draft I wrote up before Dev consulted me, just to see if I could do it. Ignore the purple links; that was a visited link color which has been scrapped.)

Unread needs to be MUCH brighter, it's hard to tell the difference as is.

Didn't someone make a nice multi quote, report, etc?

David, I suggest a bubbly and non-bubbly. I don't mind the bubble myself.

Those look like something I'd find on a hellokitty forum.

The current epic ones have the right idea.

I personally like the green better, but: Just selected the green and took it through a hue change. Yeah, that lazy.

EDIT: Am I the only one that can see these?

The left isn't so bad, but the strip in the middle? ugh. IMO, either the black strip or the strip of terrain needs to go. Also, the flat line on the right?
EDIT2: Old "last post":
New "last post":
Matches the forum a little better.

I don't know if this is doable, but maybe putting the medals under the "Rank: [whatever]" in posts that are long enough to display them. For example, if devilesk had a "Top 30 Activity" medal, it would display under the rank in the previous post.

I don't like that idea, I couldn't care less what medals someone has. If you must implement this add the option to disable it too.
