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.

Yeah I closed it to stop people adding more suggestions. I'll work on the ones suggested first!
Man I missed it. And I have a really good one.

Maybe you can create a section for TCG decks. I don't think they belong in the battle subway.

answered Dec 19, 2012 by Mewderator
Yeah. They're growing over RMT now.
Im suprised nobody else has liked this.
I'm liking this.
I assume Pokemaster would create a TCG section when he makes the forum.

Re add closing questions? I liked the closing thing.

Pokemaster said he removed it because it didn't work the way he wanted it to.

Credit to Derp Pika for the idea :)

A whole diffrent way of RMT. Tier Sections would be awesome. A section for each teir to find questions easier.

Credit to blob you mean? Right? I asked this a few days ago to replace tags :)
No, it's Derp. He asked about RMT sections for it to be easier. Though I was thinking of adding that to this...
Well questions should be tagged with the right tier like OU, UU etc. But whenever I get round to making the forum, it should have categories.
That sounds great!

Censor everywhere.

answered Dec 17, 2012 by Ninja
I believe the censor is everywhere. It is just limited in all sections in that variations of the base form of a swear are not censored on the site, a problem which I have noted before.
It does give me good reason to kick though, so I'm not complaining too much. :P

Light up the tab thing when someone posts on chat.

People go on Youtube and Facebook, etc while they're on the chat room, waiting for someone to post, so light up the little tab box so they know.

Credit to Blobyolo for this part!

Make a button so you can turn of the light if there are constant posts coming in.

From this.

A "Share" button. Sharing to twitter, facebook, google plus etc.

More attention to the DB.

answered Dec 17, 2012 by Ninja
There are already Share options available in most parts of the site.

May seem stupid but a group kick thing where 5 registered users can kick 1 person. But only once every half-hour to prevent constint kicking. (I've seen us RUs been harasted by certin people)

"Question of the month" or week.

Voted on, of course. Nominations. If 5 users nominate, it shows up on the nominated for next month / week page.

How about deleting your own posts. Instead of hidding them, if here's some reason you don't want ANYONE to see it, you can delete it.

answered Dec 20, 2012 by Megaflygon
There is a reason only PM can delete posts...
Yeah, but what if YOU want to delete it so others can't see it?
but what would be the point because if you don't others to see it then why post it in the first place?
Because it may cointain something you accedently clicked and is bad, offensive, or privite. Like your name.
This can be used to hide evidence of wrongdoings, making the job of the mod much more difficult. I think any good that can come of this suggestion is greatly outweighed by the bad.

A warning when a Mod/Editor Hides your Question.
Basically, they could click on a bubble thing to explain why the Q was hidden.
What is a Charizard Moveset?

they could have a choice that would look like this...

• Duplicate Q
○ Not pokemon related
○ Clearly can be looked up
○ Filler
○ Filler

with a Message saying something like...

Your answer has been hidden for the following reason(s):
Duplicate Q
(insert message of what the user should do)

That way, they don't have to get all the hate from users who don't know what they are doing.

Show how many times our Profile Page has been visited by Pokebase Users.

A bit like question views.

Show who's viewed your profile

Make it show who's been on your profile for the past day/week/month/two months+. Just a little suggestion.

A 'mark unresolved' button.

This should appear as button for the person who asked a question, or for yourself or a Mod. Once the button is pressed, an 'unresolved' icon should appear attracting people who know the correct answer or someone who can hide the answer that does not solve the question.

answered Dec 28, 2012 by ƒιzz
And there can be an unresolved questions section, perhaps as a subcategory of unanswered, similiar to the "no upvoted answer" or "no best answer" subsections.

Have it so that we can have "PokeBase E-Mail"

Let me make this more clear: This isn't suggesting that we get real E-Mail, but merely a way to send someone a message on their profile or something instead of commenting and have the chance that they won't look at it, or waiting forever in Chat for them to come on. The reason for this is so that some people can send other people messages without real E-Mail, because they don't have it or they don't want other people to know it, or whatever. It's kinda like Mike's PM'ing idea but you don't have to both be there at the same time.

For example:

Let's say I want to send user1 a message, telling him that I'm going to be gone for a week or whatever. Instead of writing it in my profile, when they might not look at it, I can send them a "message" and when they next come on there can be a pop-up saying You have a new message that way they'll have to look at it or at least know they have a message.

Now I'm sure many of you don't need this, but to some people it might come of use :)

Make it so we can use sexy rainbow fonts and huge letters and fancy crap.
Perhaps we could do a notifications system as well? This would probably keep track of the PMs you receive, and possibly notify you that you've been banned, had your username changed or whatnot. I like this idea, +1.

Let you see your upvotes and downvotes like if I have a question with 0 votes I can see that I have 2 upvotes and 2 downvotes.

Ok if we are going to have a Private messaging service can we have a chat box which can be created which is like a PM but multiple users can join it.
There could be a button on chat that says 'Get a chat box'
This would be useful if you wanted a groups discussion but you don't want the rest of the chat room to see.
Just an idea.
Thanks in advance ^.^
