PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

What is your most wanted feature for Pokebase (the community)? [closed]

17 votes

As in the other question, I'd like to hear what everyone else wants on the Pokebase, the community area.

By asking here, everyone can upvote each item so I know which are most popular. (That doesn't mean I will definitely do all the top suggestions, but it is more likely.) You can suggest anything that's been suggested before or anything new you think of. Rules:

  • One suggestion per answer only. This way we can vote on individual features. If you have several suggestions, post multiple answers.
  • This is for Pokebase only (including meta/RMT/chat) not the main site. There is a separate question for PokemonDb. Note: you can suggest other community-related features here.
  • Vote up your favourite suggestions but please don't down-vote. If you don't like a suggestion just leave it alone.
  • Don't suggest a general discussion forum, as I am going to do that at some point.

I will keep this open for a week or so and start work next weekend.

To repeat: this is for Pokebase and the other member areas, not the main site.

Suggested before.

When it says "check to see if your question was already asked" it would be nice if the AI on that was better.

A Spoiler feature for the new Q2A Version.

This could be used for innovative RMT formats, reduced space used, and to obscure spoilers (duh).

When a post is hidden the reason WHY it was hidden should be required.

answered Dec 19, 2012 by MrKijani
Not always. I have had some answers and such hidden and I don't know why. Sometimes they are obvious.

Take the Maximum Character limit off on question's titles. Make it so you need a Mininum of 10(im sure you have one already that is better), but take the limit off of how big it can be or at least increase it. 20 Characters really is hard to keep question in and sometimes i go over it trying to make it clear before you enter the question.

Being able to use the coding samples for true HTML coding.

answered Dec 26, 2012 by DarkTyphlosion
Can you explain a bit more? Not sure what you mean.
When I've used a lot of HTML with the site, I've found that it usually doesn't work properly.

A way of running a search within answers for things that have a lot of answers like this. I know ctrl+f can do the job, but I think this would help to facilitate checking to see if things have already been put up before.

Reviving the youtube account for content on the site and guides that wouldn't work as well in page format. We could do site material with users here and whatever else can come to mind.

answered Dec 26, 2012 by DarkTyphlosion
I believe this fits more on the other suggestions page, where this has already been suggested.

Make it so there's a number next to the "Answer" button on a question that says how many people are currently answering a question.

Perhaps a section for in-game teams, to see what people have to say about a team in-game.

A button to convert to comments, so you do not have to click edit.

In the chat section, it would list all users on pokemondb and which ones are on chat and which ones aren't.

Knowing who down voted your question or answer

answered Jan 4, 2013 by DaKing
This would cause a whole lot if complaining and unnecasary reports
This would just make people mad at each other, and would cause pointless drama.
Lol I bet he upvoted himself this is a terrible suggestion

+10 for getting BA, not 20.

Answering a simple question is a free 30 points. It shouldn't be.

answered Dec 17, 2012 by Nindzya
Then what will be the diffence of a up-vote and BA?
I guess the point would be you gain "double" for that question, because it should get upvoted plus the BA. Unfortunately there are many answers that get BA but no upvotes.

A thread like this but one you won't hide.

answered Dec 17, 2012 by Nindzya
I don't know what this means...
wont* is the correct way to say wont.
Nope, it's won't, not wont. ><. And PM, he means a sticky thread.

an alert system where all new events are listed like if you were UVd and by who, who answered a q, who gave BA and uf you answered a q with multiple answers who got BA if you didn't. also alert for DV but keep it anonymous except for Mods that way there's no DV wars, but midst can see if some one is spamming DVs .
