*IMPORTANT* Follow this topic (top right button) Help us help the community!

If we keep this forum post updated and constantly on top sooner or later someone with administrator privileges will notice and help us tidy this place up a bit!

I will update this from time to time with ideas on the subsections we need in the forums. Please share what you think we need! I will need help from all here bumping this from time to time to keep it in sight.

I'll start with a few...

1. List Building Advice 

2. Playing guides and tactics (could stick in new player advice here instead of in #1..)

3. Home brew / house custom rules

4. Custom Painting and "special modifications"

 

5. Rumors and speculations (cubanboy.. cough.. cough)

 

Ok so we have gotten a few good suggestions.. these are not set in stone nor are they ALL necessary. Would really be great to have at least a repaint and "special modifications" section though. Thanks to everyone so far who is helping out! I appreciate it!

This topic's been around for as long as I've been here. If it hasn't happened yet, it probably won't. I'm all for it, it's just unlikely.

I know.. sigh. I've been here forever and have seen this come up tons of times. Usually it's in random threads / not dedicated ones and even the dedicated ones just get buried over time due to lack of bumping and dedication by forum members. 

 

If we really annoy the heck out of em they will make us some sub sections. Biggest problem is we have to work together and keep bumping this so it's always post #1. Making a sub section on a forum is not that difficult.. really it's like 3 - 4 clicks and typing in a title / and assigning permissions. Well in most cases anyways. 

 

We really need stickied posts too.. Like oroshi's (sorry if i spelt your name wrong) movement guide. super helpful and we all know it will get buried sooner or later and lost..

Best of luck in this endeavor. I, personally, am very much in favor of repaints/customs and list building subs. Repaints so there's one place to find them all, and list-critiques so I can stop seeing 80 of them a day :P

A place for customs, rules or ships including all of those repaint, could be useful as it gets stuff that is "indirectly related" to the game away from the rest of the stuff.

 

It's almost funny that you put "build lists and advice" and "playing guides and tactics" as different suggestions because those two things are so closely tied together.  I mean how deep can a "Playing Guide" go, especially if it touched on tactics, withOUT also looking at builds?  I mean I certainly could see having some stickied thread pointing to these kinds of things but they are pretty much what you normally see.

 

I guess the category you are leaving off is "Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion on Future pieces."  This is a "let's get everything that does NOT deal with what you can do NOW in its own little section.  Of course if you move this and put building in a subform and tactics in another subforum what are you leaving for the "main" forum?

How would I find all battle reports then? It is really nice when i havent had a game in a bit to have a huge list of game recaps to read. If those were in the main forum they would all be lost or at the very least, harder to find. Id be spending more time " digging up old fossils" as chewy / solo would say.

A rumours thread is a good idea! Well ill leave the actual design up to ffg. Just trying to give them the hint with a few good suggestions along the way.

I think the request is too many IMO.   Personally I'd like to see a painting and Customs subforum but that is it.   Not because the main page is cluttered... but rather because I'd like to have one place to quickly look at everyone's repaints etc.

You are probably right.. too many might be worse. I really think the repaints and homebrew sections would be stellar though. The guides might be nice too, but I doubt there would be much in it. Oroshis hs a nice one goin now. They could just be stickied, that would work as they dont pop up too often and are few and far in between. could also combine guides and homebrew.

Yeah, what you want is quick reference to the "good" stuff, while still allowing regular conversation in the main section.

Thanks! just have to stay on target and keep this thread on page one.

 

perhaps if you'd all post a "stay on target" qoute once a day here it will stay in sight. I have a feeling this thread is going to get annoying real quick. It's a good thing, need to annoy any moderators out there and get some forum support!

you know they are laughing at us even now..

3. Home brew / house custom rules

4. Painting and customization

 

5. Rumors and speculations Cubanboy

 

I would only make the following change to the names of the Sub-forums. After All he is responsible for like 99% of those post. :D

 

 

 

 

We really need stickied posts too.. Like oroshi's (sorry if i spelt your name wrong) movement guide. super helpful and we all know it will get buried sooner or later and lost.. 

 

 

No worries on the misspelling, I've been using that same user name for 15 years online and my wife still can't spell it correct. It really would be nice to have my thread about movement found here: http://community.fan...ment/?p=1143721 Stickied. I would like everyone a chance to read it.
