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.

When people get kicked from chat. Put on the page when you try to enter chat that says "take a min to settle down" The reason they got kicked.

On chat, Idle users should be moved to the bottom so they dont take up space on the chat bar.

Editors / Experts / Mods getting to temp ban for 10 minutes, like a kick.

Big suggestion here guys!

I was thinking that people are gaining Expert way to easily nowadays. Make it so Expert is received when one gets 3000 points on Pokebase and Battle Subway as that adds up to the 6000 points needed for Expert via PokeBase. Take out the 6000 point thing on PokeBase. Also, PokeBase answers are so easy to answer anyone can gain points to become an Expert. But if you have 3,000 points on PokeBase and Battle Subway, the most prominent sections involving Pokemon knowledge, it would be more fair.

3000 on RMT would take like 2 years lol
And only ONE user has 3000.
Maybe 5000 for PB and 1000 for Battle Sub.
You could also do a check up on the questions to see if they actually deserve the title Expert.
That's what I'm saying TBL...everyone focuses on PB and nothing on BS ever happens. This would encourage use of Battle Subway.
If it WAS 3,000 on Pokebase and Battle Subway, half our Mods wouldn't fit Expert criteria xP
Actually none of them would. But a lot of Experts came to be by spamming good answers on PokeBase.
I would actually.
Only Josh and I would be Experts based off this.
Plus, where is Meta on this? I think Meta is more important than either section in terms of being a helpful member of the site. I mean, how better to help the site than to actually give suggestions for its improvement?
Hell no. Just raise the limit to 10,000 again.

I know it might lag a select amount of users more. But i would like to elongate the chat history. A link is gone in 10 mins with a moderately full chat. I just think it would be beneficial.

answered Dec 16, 2012 by SammichHero
Perhaps have options for how many posts we want to have shown?
I've seen this ability on plenty of sites, such as Steam or sites for stores.

Permission to retag out EVERY stupid tag.

answered Dec 19, 2012 by Nindzya
We can already do this. I do it when I see it. Not that I really care about tags, so I don't do this often.
