Hey there! This is a thread for small suggestions, little things that don't merit a lot of action or that you don't expect to require much discussion or interaction. Small or fiddly changes like the typesetting on a page, color choices, things to that effect. Something bigger than that can also float by here, too, just keep in mind that minor suggestions should:

- not warrant much discussion
- not warrant much action; few moving parts.

No worries if you're not sure if a suggestion should go here or in its own thread! if a suggestion needs moved to a thread, we'll just ask you to do so or make it ourselves and reattribute it to you. With that said, take care and happy suggesting.

It would be nice if your completed trophies appeared highlighted or had a coloured background in the list of trophies, to tell them apart from missing ones at a glance.
Or if there's a software constraint for this, maybe we could have a tracker of some sort built in Google Sheets or somesuch and linked in the resource covering trophies, for people to better keep track of which ones they've unlocked themselves? Idk, yo, but knowing which trophies to go after next would def be cool.

This Pokemon can sometimes be found meticulously editing and re-editing it's own content, never satisfied with the results.
(As a reminder, any responses here by moderators are our own opinions, not necessarily indicative of a collective staff decision).

I do have to say I like the idea of having all the information you need about your trophies all in once place. Bouncing back and forth between tabs and doing manual checks can lead to mistakes.

This Pokemon is too lazy too make any creative shit, and would sitting down like a sack of potatoes and play video games.
Here's a quick little suggestion I have: Can you guys make it so that any posts made in the Festive Plaza don't count towards the Message count in the profile? I feel like with that, it would encourage people to make posts on other threads in the forum instead of constantly swarming the Festive Plaza, considering how easy it is to make posts there.

It was like that in the old forum before Tapatalk fucked up everything you guys worked on there.

@Azelf Hi! This is a decision that will mainly affect the users using FP, so we’re going to open a full discussion for the board. I’ll quote you over into the new thread!

She's like a sea urchin. Tough and prickly on the outside, but delicate and easily wounded if hit the wrong way. Please handle gently.
Hi. Here's my suggestion. Could the Tapatalk archive go inside Old Chateau instead of being on the front page? I'm 99% sure this is just a me problem but it drives my ADD absolutely bonkers that there are two FCRs on the front page. Idk if that's something you could actually do but it would help Mouse's quality of life. Please consider. 🙏

I would suggest a slight change to the suggestion above. Burying the Tapatalk archive in Old Chateau would essentially make all of the old runs invisible to members and guests who don't know to look for it. Why not rename the board itself to just "Tapatalk Run Archive" so it isn't the exact same name?

Maybe put it under Ruins of Alph instead of inside Old Chateau itself? That way it actually looks like it's archived!

This Pokémon has too many ideas for their own good.
Is it possible to add something so that thread creators are able to see who’s watching their threads? Or at least how many people are doing so

I’m sorry if this has been asked before, or is already a thing, but would it be possible to add the option to change the size of images? I’ve been trying to use screenshots from my IPad for a run I’m working on, but they end up too big.

There is an option built into the forums itself! When you tap an image on the ipad in the What You See Is What You Get editor, the axis with the four arows pulls up a resizer. In the bbcode view it looks like
Code:
  [IMG width="50px"]Link[/IMG]

Thank you. I was stupid and assumed the resizer in the code wasn’t there because it wasn’t in the BB Code Help Page. Sorry for wasting your time on something that already exists.

Would it be possible to create an index for newsletters in resources? D: Idk about anyone else, but I always forget issues are in Dry Erase, not resources like the first one is.

For sure! It’s on my list to have them all transferred to resources in full once I can work out whatever bug it is that wouldn’t let us post them, but in the meantime I’ll have the resources link out to the threads.

I'm not sure if this is a rather low work suggestion, but I feel like it is? At least the first part does XD;; If it isn't I completely get it - u-b

But I would REALLY think it'd be cool if we could go directly to our team's forums from the little button we get onto our profile, that way we can go directly from commenting or posting right to tossing up our offering to ye dabbin' legendaries. Or alternatively, where we have our like reply area on a post, that we can have an offering button that like wise does the same and automatically brings us to the category thing for posting. I feel like ease of use would encourage more people to post for their teams!

Normally quiet and calm, the taste of salt causes this Pokemon to go off-the-shits feral.
This is just a quick one (and I hope this is the right place for this!) but the link in the BLM forum header appears to have an empty target and just refreshes the page when clicked on. This might be a flaw with XenForo itself (I'm not sure if it allows external links to other sites in the header), but I thought I'd mention it on the off chance it can be poked at!

Talk softly and slowly so you don't scare this gentle creature.
Sorry this took so long to get, i didn't seem to get the notification for this post! It has now been fixed, was just a syntax error.
