Hey guys! This thread is about some types of feedback we might be looking for and also gives a small recap of features we plan to change from the start. I gave a recap of the forum's features here but I'll go a bit more into the nitty gritty here of what I'd like feedback on the most, in addition to anything else that comes to mind.

Here are the main questions I have:
- How are the categories and forum sections? Are there any you'd like to be expanded upon, or any that you think could be condensed/moved into a subcategory?
- How's the look and feel of the forums on PC and mobile?
- Features you like or dislike?
- How's the rules lookin'? Anything you think is a must on the FAQ?

Here's some stuff we're aware of or stuff that's in the works:
- Custom smilies! We will have our own smilies. That will absolutely be done.
- If your username is one word and it's too long, it spills into another line below it. We'll look into this, but for now if you want your name changed, just let me know!
========================================

Suggestions in this thread:
-'UI', 'Modding Tools' mod tab category
- the share icons at the bottom need to be easier to see in threads (they are visible on the homepage)

- move introductions to 'welcome!'
- way to link dependencies
- prefixes for mods tab: recolor/aesthetic, framework
- trophies with icons
- look into ignore function
- guide about forum's code
- look into emailing issues --> password reset included

- look into threadmarks
- look into image spacing

This post may be updated as more information rolls in! Feel free to make a thread with your feedback. Alternatively, you're free to reply here.

From my inital login and first feels around the forum I really do like the way they're styled and set out. All of it looks really nice from an aesthetic stand point.
I like the rules, they're easy to read, simple, make sense.
Overall from my first view and look around here everything looks great, works great, no qualms.
Might get back to you after I find something to nitpick at.

I quite like the general design of the forums. They match the game's look and feel well. Maybe a Miscellaneous mod category?

Edit: There is a typo for the "Grandpa's Visit" trophy.
Post 1,000 message. "Four eternal spirit candles have appeared above Grandpa's shrine, commemorating your noble work."

So far I'm liking these forums on mobile except for what aquova pointed out. I heard something about mobile not being totally done but how this one is organized it's pretty palettable, and I generally hate mobile versions of forums. Awful to navigate, awful to look at. This is so far neither. I tried to find something I'd add but right now my feedback is that it's good.

WAIT I found something! There's no place to put your discord handle on your account, only this... From what I can tell, ancient thing called Skype.

If we can add more handles, I'd love Nexus/ModDrop/CurseForge/Github fields to be added. Of course Discord as well like Ian said. The `Share` buttons at the bottom also blend in. Perhaps a different color to make them standout more or use the colored logo icons?

Edit: Also that my name isn't on one line :mad:

Thank you for the feedback! Can you specify what you mean by handles exactly?

Also, for now there is no fix to a long username ): BUT I can space your name if you want, which should fix it from spilling over to the next line.Would you like me to do that?

Handles = profile names so how I'm also paradigmnomad on Nexus, projectpopulatejsonassets on ModDrop!
Spacing the username would make me happy :)

I'd like to add on that, even on the non-mobile site, I'm personally not a fan of the transparent header. Especially with the text color, it blends in to the actual post backgrounds and is hard to read. But otherwise, everything looks super neat and nice!

The filtering system is pretty nice. It would be awesome for the Mod section to have the following prefix tags to really take advantage of it:

Guide - Demonstration about how one goes about modding / using a mod tool / etc. Could even be about pixel art.
Demo - Content Creator/Mod Author shows off their work.
Advice - A question regarding anything in terms of mods. Code, art, or audio. It may be how to go about solving a problem in code, how something looks and desire feedback, or how their sound work is progressing.

Two more things:

I mentioned the invisible header being odd on mobile, but now that I'm home it's invisible on desktop as well, which I haven't seen mentioned.

Is the plan to have the whole forum locked behind a login screen, or is that just for the beta? I would strongly prefer having the forum being read-only without logging in, rather than totally hidden.

I would like the ability to drag + drop files to upload rather than having to manually select the file. I noticed this when uploading mods.
I also agree I'm not a fan on the transparent header now that I've looked at it for longer. It looks like a mistake rather than intended.

I appreciate that my ancient dinosaur of a computer hasn't run into any major problems using the forum. The sticky bar at the top is nice, although some of it is hard to read because the text blends in with the lighter background of previous posts; this might just be a dinosaur browser issue.

It's only locked for the beta. When we launch for real, people logged out/unregistered will get to browse the forums!


What is the max file size? I tried uploading a photo from my phone and it says it is too large of a file.
the maximum file size is currently 1024KB. i'll look into changing the amount, and we'll have it posted somewhere so folks know.
