Forum suggestions?
« on: September 19, 2005, 12:06:30 PM »
Horrible opening salvo, I know. Just a few suggestions I'd like to drop in the pot. Could we get the player locator back? I keep praying the Dallas/Ft. Worth area will grow a buzz with Warzone players. This helps me keep my faith up that someone will see it and e-mail me.

A general area for non game related banter. Hey, I like to get to know what's going on with people and who they are outside the relation to the game. I hate to say it but I more of a tangent banterer.

An introduction area where new registrar can say howdy and get a good ol EE forums welcome. Also allows us to get some basic info in there as to the who and what.

Just a few thoughts.

Oh yeah, hi!

Dig it.  The player locater probably helped EE do more business from me and my crew than if it wasn't there.  It allowed us to attend a demo, learn the game, meet great people, and become totally addicted to Chronopia. 
Thom, you seem to be responding to all the feedback thrown at ya; the old player locater should come back.  If I knew how to work the Karma chumpie, I would applaud TwoGunBob.  Looks like I just did.  Cheers.

Could we get a section of the forum for selling and/or trading of figs, terrain, etc.?

I second Topkicks suggestion for a TRADE forum, and not just 'cause I got some stuff I want to get rid of in exchange for sweet, lady, Dark legion!

Maybe I'm a tard and missed it, but is there a button/link on the forums that will take us back to the EE site, if not can you add one.  And if there is one can somebody tell me where it is.

Love the new look and feel, a definite step forward Thom + Co.

My suggestion would be an 'excelsior employee' post finder/section. This would be a forum that just threads out all the EE employee posts so that those of us that hang on your every word can easily read them without having to sift through the site every time a post is made.  Not that i don't want to hear from all of you other Warzone and Chronopia nerds, but i'd probably lose my job if i sat here reading the forum all day ;)

Here's a practical suggestion...Can you put two links on the bottom of the pages that lets me view the next newest and previously newest (?) threads?  I think I had another but I forget it now...I'll get back to you on that one.

Another suggestion: would it be possible to put an obvious link back to the EE website? Here it seems I have no choice but to type in he url again.

Perhaps links to some "unofficial but useful" sites covering the world of Mutant Chronicles?

Fan Art, unit ideas, battle reports, galleries..?

Not like it's a big deal but can you fix the clock on the forums, Thom?   It's 3 hours off for me on the east coast, unless the site is set for Pacific time zone, then its right.
