    Okay so I am looking to update the forum a little bit. Im sure by now you have noticed some minor tweaks like the blog being updated regularly as well as some new additions to the forum like the All Threads Forum. Well I want to make this the best forum possible!!!!

    Is there anything you guys/gals would like to see on the forums? Do you have any suggestions / ideas?

    Here are some ideas that have been brought up:


    • A Rating System for users when they do trades or sell corals/equipment

    Not sure how everyone feels about this but I was thinking of adding a reputation for each user when someone buys or sells something both users can leave feedback for the other user?
    Do you think you would use this feature?




    • Maybe having some games on the site? Something to kill the time.

    I have found a couple plugins that would allow us to accomplish this. Some are actually pretty neat which would keep track of each users points, some have the ability to do tournaments?
    Do you think this would be a good addition to the site?

    If anyone has any ideas at all or would like to see something added / changed please let us know here. I would love to see everyone start using C-Sea as their main Local Reef Forum!


    Thanks again!

    I would like to see the size restrictions on photos be increased. I have to resize my photos to post directly to the forum. Or a plugin that auto-resizes the photo.

    I'm not sure exactly how it's all setup, but I'm guessing our storage space is limited. How much space does the club currently have for storage with this website? Is it something we will exceed if people start uploading a lot of photos? Don't mean to be a Debbie Downer, just trying to prevent future headaches :)

    It only holds a certain amount of posts I'll double check I'm looking at doing a complete upgrade to xenforo but still seeing what I can do with vbulliten. It's just a text log so I wouldn't imagine it's to much but it's def something to check don't want to run out of space lol

    Thanks!

    I tried to upload a 3.8M (3872 x 2592 ) photo and the upload window just goes blank after I select the file. If we are restricted on server storage, is there a plugin that auto-resizes the uploaded photos (something like http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=233293&highlight=resize )?

    On a different note, I cannot see the new post icons that were added I just see the broken image icon and the description.
