Add one post to post count.

Now I'm even more important than i was before posting this.

I keep looking for a "vote thread Up or Down" option, like we have over in the DCUO forums.

I would vote this thread down. Things are fine the way they are.

/signed to that idea, SS.
I agree.

That works for me Stormshade. I hope you can implement it someday.

Actually, what I would like to see is a system in which people who usually post constructive or helpful advice gain 'points', and people who engage in trolling loose said points. So when a dev reads a post they think is thoughtful, or when you spot people helping people, they may gain a little +1, for example.

As others have mentioned, what matters here is the content of your posts, and how you treat other individuals. Not how many posts you've made. That's why we've disabled the display of post count.

There are some things I'd like to see, and improve upon in the forums. I'd love to get "Forum Achievements" for you all. None of them will be related to your post count.

I'd love to see little buttons which let you cross post an awesome forum post, from anyone, to your FaceBook wall or twitter feed. I'd also like to see a way for users to "like" a post here on the forums, without using a 5 star thread rating system like VBB has packed in.

I'd love to see more integration of the game into the forums and website. Including a better Captain's Database, The ability to use titles you earn in-game as forum titles, a suite of tools to allow you to manage your fleets from the website, and I can just keep on going.

It's going to take time, but this is all stuff I'd love to see happen. What about you guys?

Thanks,

Stormshade

P.S. Tamgros! You need to post more.
I think this sounds great.

Especially the possibility to manage Fleet stuff from here and a better working Captains Database.

One thing that would be great, is if we could see what items are attached to a mail.
Like we can in the game. That and a way to forward that mail (with the items still in it) to someone else if I need to.

All solid ideas, I'd be very happy to see where these go over the course of the next year.

But surely that would mean all Devs are ensigns, as they have the ability to 'cheat'? :p

I love the idea of tying the forums more into the gameplay experience by reflecting in-game achievements in your forum profile. I think it sounds really great

Also glad to hear that doing something with the Captain's Database is being discussed. Its been broken for a while, and while its a minor thing, I did enjoy having it.
