Nuklear LORD's official TODO list

Postby Nuke Skyjumper on Thu May 08, 2008 2:13 am

This post will be the official place to list anything and everything that should be done to improve the site. That includes bug fixes and features.

I'll go through the older posts to find more, but for now let's start with:

- All the links to individual games just show the current stats, instead of the stats from that game
- Large images posted to forum get cut off
- Fix member list to show every page of data and create an option to show all active LORD players / add "search by lord name"
- Tweak forum color scheme. Nuke, you are no artist. Trial-and-error this thing until it's good.
- Add a better mouse-over on the Who's Online box for displaying the player's IP
- Midnight Master appears to be gone from special realm
- make mailto: link test non-white so that it can appear in the white private message background.
- password recovery is broken
- Set up an XML feed of each realm's player stats, for people who want to run statistics on this stuff without killing our server by loading the ACTUAL stats page over and over again.
- graphics in special realm are weird?
- Mod to allow specific forums to not add to post count (should affect posts moved to/from those forums, and account for deleting posts too. Resynching post counts should also examine posts in there and not have them count)
- Add age verification / terms of service for new forum users
- Donations to LORD should be emailed to Nuke and TMO instead of ending up in a black hole
- Admin system should generate in-game mail
- make nuklear mobile friendly - Tapatalk is a plugin to forums (phpBB3, that's what we run here isn't it?) that allows it to be easily viewed on iPhone/iPod touch. i know we are probably rare in number, but more and more people are using them (0/5% of all nuklear traffic! :P ) and i *believe* it's an easy install. it may work with other mobile platforms, but i can't be sure.
- fix forum search - you can use google custom search and copy the code into the forum, apparently, and have full search capabilities. it's the same as using 'site:nuklear.org' in a google search, but integrates into the forum.

TMO, feel free to edit this post. Commoners, go ahead and post a reply - and don't really worry too much about what you're posting, even the smallest ideas could be useful.

There used to be a "who is online" button...which also provided you with the IP addresses of the players online. I was surprised that this feature is no longer available...

You can still get the IP, if you hold the mouse cursor over the player name in the Who's Online box. Granted this isn't very obvious and you're not the first one to ask about it. Going on the TODO list.

ah ha... nice new format. I like... I also like that when you click on the name of a player it colors their rank number red.

This is a very minor annoyance, but is somewhat of an issue.

In chat, there are only about six or seven of those colors which are really very readable. It seems the bright colors are the sought after ones, and if more than five or six people get on, someone is chased into one of the dark, hard to read colors.

Might not even be fixable, but I thought I'd mention it.

How about a Nuklear LORD jingle that plays everytime you load the web page? :mrgreen:

Something like the Bonanza Theme... Da da dun, da da dun, da da dun dun dun.... or MetaLLica's Four Horsemen.

Also, maybe the sound of an old man groaning everytime a player changes their alias to Manex?

Might I ask what online user list you are referring to, and what search engines?

I'm in full favor of adding colors if possible, but... people can indeed use the same color. ;) Why, back in the day all we had in chats was one color. And we had to use it uphill.. both ways!

Wait.

I think he means that search bots are counted among the online users displayed at the bottom of the index page and on the who's online page. You see Yahoo[bot] (or something to that effect), etc. I agree that it's sort of weird that they show up, although not a big deal.

Does phpBB have a forum spell check module? At home, I can use the IE/Firefox plugins I have installed, but when I'm at work, most of the time I'm spell-check-less, as I'm stuck on a Citrix Server Client based session. The guys at IT probably wouldn't understand my need to have correct spelling in my forum posts. :shock:

On the plus side, the Java client for playing the game seems to work better under Citrix with the new code (opening a new window that looks very Telnet-like), rather than the fixed window on the old design. It still chokes on the ASCII graphics, but I've seen the screens enough to know what they are. :)!

Ahh. The search bots. That makes sense. Yeah, those seem a little silly to me too, but I tend to just ignore them.

Something that would be nice is if in the case where you're browsing the forums without logging in and then suddenly you want to post and you click post, and then you log in, you can start writing your post right away instead of ending up back at the board index. Likewise, if you login from the forum games page, it would be nice to stay there after logging in.

Heh. One I'd like to see is this:

- Add a [spoiler][/spoiler] tag pair (puts up a code box with a button that allows you to unhide/rehide contents). Should be several phpBB mods out there already to do this.

Likewise a [s][/s] pair for strikethrough would be nifty.

Strikethrough is a nice feature; Gibreel would use that alot! (I was always so jealous because I never knew how to do it)

Um, phpBB3 has the ability to make whatever bbcode you want. It takes like two seconds.

Bah. I didn't know that. I was just making sure you were paying attention.

Edit: That didn't actually work though. Fuck you, phpBB~! Nevermind. Had to repost it.

OK, petty thought number 2:

All the fonts on the forum page are sans serif, except the words "welcome, injektilo" and the sub-forum titles "Realms, Game Play, General, Nuklear Lord Development", which are serif fonts.

Should be easy to change these to an Arial type font keep the slick look going?

PS. I hate serif fonts......
