1. Does We Create Stuff come up fast enough?

If you mean loading times, they're good :)

2. Would you like to see a quick post option or any other addon around the forums?

A flash forum section, also i would love to see some level icons :) Kinda like what NG does, but with sillyness, like sporks and stuff.

3. Do you think it's necessary to change the forum skin anytime soon?

No, please don't. This skin is perfect for the site, fits in with the homepage, don't change it :(

4. Do you think it's necessary to change the forum software itself anytime soon?

Nah, SMF is better than phpBB in my opinion, but with alot of modifications available, phpBB is good :)

5. Do you think the News/Announcements forum is enough for overall We Create Stuff news?

Yes?

6. Do you think the front page of We Create Stuff website details

enough about the projects?

I think the homepage is excellent, it isn't packed with stuff to read and its nice to look at. However, i think it'd be great to have a rollover box that pops up and follows the mouse, with a small amount of information about it. I can provide an example if need be :)

7. Do you think more moderators are required?

Right now, No. Soon, yes. The forum seems to be fine right now, but around the time it hits 200 members, i think it'll need Mods :)

8. Does the ads above this post right now interrupt your experience in any way?

Hell no, they're Perfectly placed. I think they're in the best place possible.

Unrelated :: I got my adsense cheque on saturday, $110 :)

9. If you could change only one thing in We Create Stuff, what would it be?

I'd be part of it :)

10. Did you finish Portal: TFV?

Some of it, up to abou level 35 where i started to cheat ;p

1. Does We Create Stuff come up fast enough? (Note> we made some server changes 2 days ago, perhaps earlier problems were solved)

WCS runs fine for, I've never had problems with slow loading or whatever.

2. Would you like to see a quick post option or any other addon around the forums?

Quick post would be useful, along with "report spam" button.

3. Do you think it's necessary to change the forum skin anytime soon?

Nah, I like the green 'n grey, it's easy on the eyes.

4. Do you think it's necessary to change the forum software itself anytime soon?

I have no idea what you're on about, so I'll answer waffles.

5. Do you think the News/Announcements forum is enough for overall We Create Stuff news?

Hmm, there's not much in there and not much detail, so I guess it covers it fine, but I'd personally like to see a blog or something, to keep us up to date in the WCS secret cave.

6. Do you think the front page of We Create Stuff website details

enough about the projects?

It gives no detail about the projects, simply a title and screenshot. However, I like the front page, everything is just there. Tbh, I rarely see the front page because I've got the forums bookmarked, along with portal.

7. Do you think more moderators are required?

I'll edit this post to answer this when a rules thread is up.

8. Does the ads above this post right now interrupt your experience in any way?

I seriously didn't notice them.

9. If you could change only one thing in We Create Stuff, what would it be?

I'd remove this question from your post because I can't think of an answer :P

10. Did you finish Portal: TFV?

The console got the better of me.

1. When there are no big images being loaded off places like photobucket or image shack; then yea. (one of the reasons I'v been against images in sig space - not everyone has the luxury of a high speed internet connection, so that kind of stuff can really extend load times in that case)

2. I don't think any more options need to be added.

3. No.

4. VBulletin (maybe), but only if the community becomes huge; Otherwise the current setup will probably do just fine.

5. Yes.

6. Yes.

7. Not as of now.

8. No.

9. Disallow images in the signature space.

10. Of course.

1. Yep

2. Wouldn't mind it.

3. It's fine the way it is.

4. Read #3.

5. Sure.

6. Not really. I didn't understand that Nightmare House 2 was a hl2 mod until actually having to look for it.

7. Maybe in the future, but right now with the small amount of projects and threads, it's fine.

8. Firefox addon: AdBlock Plus, baby. Every website creators worst nightmare. :)

9. More publicity. There's only a few people online at one time. :(

10. Yep, and I loved it. :D

So you are also against posting images at all?

No.

Posting images here and there is ok, because it's not something that people do *all* the time, and when they do, it's usually something different/interesting/useful - so it's worth waiting/scrolling for.

The (even now) over-sized images in your signature are added *every* time you post, and are always the same/same loop.

My personal opinion (which is what I think this thread asks for) is that images in signature space should be disallowed all together. Is that right or not for this forum? -> That's for the administrators to decide.

However, regardless of the final decision, you should still (in the interests of friendship and community) at least use a smaller image, because it's really far too large, and I'm not the only one who thinks so.

Of course, it's just a suggestion.

PS:
For boards that decide to allow images in signature space, the "rule of thumb" is usually 3-4 text lines high. And that's for more than just bandwidth issues, it's also for consistency.

1. Does We Create Stuff come up fast enough?

- as asked before, if you are talking about loading time, it's just fine!

2. Would you like to see a quick post option or any other addon around the forums?

- a quick post option always supports the communication of a community so i would say yes.

3. Do you think it's necessary to change the forum skin anytime soon?

- the forum style is just fine, very simple and comfortable for the eyes.

4. Do you think it's necessary to change the forum software itself anytime soon?

- i do not know, it's just fine for me =)

5. Do you think the News/Announcements forum is enough for overall We Create Stuff news?

- an announcement at your frontpage would help those people that surf arround and "accidently" find your site.

6. Do you think the front page of We Create Stuff website details enough about the projects?

- no, there is nearly no info and if you think about adding more stuff, you will need a short description especially when more people will hit your site.

7. Do you think more moderators are required?

- no not yet, if you feel like moderating the forum takes to much time, then you will need mods.

8. Does the ads above this post right now interrupt your experience in any way?

- i had to scroll back to see if there were really ads xD (they fit in very well)

9. If you could change only one thing in We Create Stuff, what would it be?

- a level editor or a suggestion section for new portal level's would be great.

10. Did you finish Portal: TFV? |:

- HELL YEAH! and no cheats or console commands needed of course :proud:

ot: i would like to see some restrictions for signature pics, too
