Default Forum Sugestions

Hello guys and gals, Just a couple of forum suggestions that could pass time for people when they are on site and bored or whatever really.

Anyway....

Shoutbox
vBarcade
Thanks/Likes for posts and threads
vBexperience

These are just a couple of modifications that could help the page and its members interact more and pass the time when visiting.

Easy to install and easy to maintain.

If not then fine, Just a suggestion

vBarcade has a negative effect too, in my experience. Last forum I installed it to saw an influx of nonposting members who filled up the leaderboards. No one knew who they were so it was no fun to compete with them. And some regular posters stopped posting and played Pac-Man all day


vBexperience is where your account levels up like an RPG when you post and stuff. SAUK has posters who delete posts just to keep their post total low so they don't look like they live online. They'd hate vBexp.

Sorry to be negative, OP.

I thought people deleted their posts in a fit of cringe. I usually get rid of the personal ones and ones with pics.

SAUK is alright how it is. In all honesty, I really like the old skool vibes of this forum.

The one thing that would be brilliant would be to be able to upload photos straight onto here.

There's also a distinct lack of cat/dog emoticons.

It's pretty dated looking, and doesn't appear to have a mobile friendly version, other than that it's perfectly functional.

^ I started writing a pass through script, to provide a nice mobile version for my phone.

There is also an add in available that isn't bad, it would be worth these guys getting, as not all of us want to use taptalk.

Yes they should be able to, also setting a max width rule on images would be super simple and stop HUGE images breaking the layout.

I have been experimenting with greasemonkey and stylish to make it easier on the eyes when reading at night. It's far from perfect, but it does the job.

Alas no, just desktop.
Although you can get tampermonkey on android.

^
what you do with your pots of jam is your business I suppose,
but, given that there's only a very small handfull of people using this forum that are from Scotland, banning them seems a bit pointless tbh
you can count the Scottish regular posters on here on the fingers of one hand practically
