PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

What is your most wanted feature for Pokebase (the community)? (page 2) [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.

Allow ingame questions please.
It really causes a lot of Havoc. I am aware that they have too many variables but the Asker needs help and that is what the PokeBase is for right? The answerer will asker and will help the User up to a point. No need for anything else?

This is smart. It'll stop the comotion and it'll help people trying to beat the game.
Guys, no down voting.
we have the ingame team questions ._. that was the whole point of those
They weren't allowed before just due to the sheer volume of them and the fact that they resulted in the same answer of "level up your damn pokemon" every time. That and the fact that you're much more limited in what moves you can put on a pokemon since you're limited with what you have to select.

An Edit History for user profiles.

I've noticed that when you ban people, and they have unwanted information on their profile, they'll immediately hide it. I've also been experienced with this, I had my hate list towards Ninja but I hid it. If you do this, you can get info needed to get proper proof for a ban.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~For those who don't understand~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Say we have a user, User A and User B. User B offends a bunch of users with a bunch of curses and profanity on his profile. When User A reports him/her, User B immediately erases the needed proof before User A can get a hold of it. BUT, if we had this feature, trachy could see it.

Note from Fizzcube, all credit to him: Only Mods + Pokemaster have access to this edit history and the owner him/herself.

Pokemaster I hope you consider this as I feel it will benefit the site and stop many trolls from continuing his/her reign of terror. Also, I want to read the edit history of Rio's profile XD. But seriously, I feel this would help.

From this.

Longer kicks.

answered Dec 17, 2012 by Ninja
This is needed.
We can just ban if we want users unable to act for longer periods of time.
While a kick is more effective in some theoretical cases, I don't often see users making huge contributions to the site in the ten minutes they have been kicked. I assume they go do something else. Or in the case of JCM, make several posts asking why they were kicked instead of just waiting the ten minutes to ask on chat. :/

If you are idle for 20+ mins in chat your name disappears.

Would be SOOOO nice.

Replying. Similar to Youtube.

answered Dec 17, 2012 by Ninja
Replying where?
Since he says Youtube, probably replying to other people's comments so people know who they are replying back to; although "My Updates" pretty much gets the job done.

If a user registers with the same IP as another, the mods approve or reject the account.

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.

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)
