Not quite sure if this is the appropriate forum for this, but I've got a few suggestions for modifications to the forums, if the Admins ever get around to reading this.

First, you know how we have a "Sticky" icon on stickied threads? It would be pretty awesome if we could have like, some kind of icon to show "Threads I have posted in," like on other forum systems.

It would also be pretty awesome if we could use BBCode to embed videos into our posts. I was specifically thinking CR videos, maybe with a [VIDEO]ID NUMBER[/VIDEO] kind of tag, but even YouTube videos would be awesome.

Anyone else have suggestions specifically for the Forum aspect of the site?


[Note: Only similar thread I could find was from back in `09, and I didn't want to necrobump.]

Nothing to add.... but I support these changes.

Especially the one about "Threads I have posted in."

There's a subforum for this.

Oh, thanks, I didn't see it on the main forum listing. ^^; I'll report this and ask a Mod to move it.

Moved as requested!

Just for CR videos, there is a way to include those in your posts, using crvideo as your tag with the episode ID number from the link, so for /mobile-suit-gundam-iron-blooded-orphans/episode-1-iron-and-blood-687053, you'd use just the 687053 portion, and get:
You either have Javascript turned off or an old version of Flash Player.

Get the latest Flash Player


The /help?topic=bbcode link near the forum posting box has the full BBCode support list.. unfortunately, YouTube isn't included.

You may also want to check out beardfist's CRQueue extension if you use Chrome. I think it adds in some functionality that you might enjoy, and more information is over at /group/Beardfists_Programming_Corner.

Domo! It seems like something I could certainly use, I will definitely check it out when I wake up.

The Fist of the Beard compels me to.

Threads I have posted in:

In the forum searchbox (not the main searchbox) type:

user:your_user_name

So in your case it would be:



That only works for your own user name, though. It also only searches "down" so if you are in a thread, you have to go back to a higher forum level first.

That seems to only show posts, not threads as a whole.

I'm saying something more like, I'm browsing a forum's thread index, and spot a thread with a "You posted here!" icon, and suddenly remember, "Oh yeah, I totally forgot about this thread!"

To add onto this suggestion, it would also be cool to incorporate your Buddy List into this... Like, have another icon that says, "Hey, one or more of your buddies posted in this thread!"

That way, we could see what our buddies are doing, and go chitchat with them (or argue, hahaha).

I'm not really sure if this would ultimately be a good idea or a bad idea, but I think it's an idea worth mentioning.
