The website is great so far, even better now that there is a forum. Looking forward to the vault.

Edit: On second thought, the forum may need more categories once everyone realizes it's up.

When the game comes out, bug report. Other games by AAA indie when it also comes to that :D You should make a IDEA forum where you could post well, ideas :P Might also have a sticky where you can see every patch/update/development you made so people can keep track of them ^^ Anyways GL with it all and looking forward to everything!

I know a few of these have been mentioned in the past, but:

  • The ability to visit other users profiles

  • Comment on profiles

  • Buddy system (add friends)

  • More forum sections
  • Post count (see how many posts a user has made)

Those would be nice additions.

From the first teaser trailer to now, I think you guys have come a very long way. It's exceptional that you've chosen to go the indie route as opposed to becoming the proverbial slave to a publisher. Overall, so far I have absolutely loved what I have seen and if what we are seeing now is any indication at all, then I can't wait to see a finished product. So far, the site is looking good, and more in-game footage is always appreciated in addition to anything else that'll give us a better perspective from the developer point of view.

Great to see the forum up and running!

Well, the forum lacks more or less every feature implimented in a normal forum, but i'm sure you're well aware of that, and these features will be implimented when you get the time :)

About the website, i personaly think that the menues are a bit confusing. I'd like to se some normal stupidity friendly menues. I really can't make any logic sense out of the blod like menues wich are being used right now.

But maybe that just me being dense :P

Oh, and one other thing before i forget it!

A list of names and numbers of people who signed up for every rank! That would be nice :) So, basicly a members list, just with ranks :)

As it stands, the forums are functional and easy to read. Which is pretty good.

Should add support for BBCode and Embeds. And a way to see who is online on the website. I hate feeling like I'm all alone.

Hey Guys, Its great to see the forum up and running, great work ZPS! With that said I pretty much agree with every single suggestion posted so far regarding both the website and the forum (I especially agree with all of MATT51723 suggestions)! Despite having suggestions I'm still very thankfull that you guys got the forum up, it shows that your making progress and following through with your earlier "To Do" list! Keep up the great work ZPS and keep posted fellow Spearheads!

@MATT51723 I totally agree with your suggestions, and I am pretty confident that we'll add most of them in a not so distant feature.

@StrudsDK Would you care to elaborate on which features you think "normal forums" have that we lack? It would be much appreciated.

@Getz2oo3 As it stands right now we're using the Markdown language. We might consider adding BBCode support, but its a larger update and as it stands I think there are more important features to implement before that. We should definitively add a "Users Online" feature as soon as possible.

We're also trying to figure out which forum categories we should create (if any). So it's nice to get some suggestions for this, such as iToby's for an "Idea forum". This is actually the reason why we started out with just General Discussion and Off Topic - we want your feedback on that.

This is great stuff so far, keep it coming! :)

Sure! MATT51723 already brought some of them up.

Well, the forum works as it should, but i think i lacks the "bonus" features of a forum.

Such as: - Search Function - New topics / Post since last login - User list, with ranks - options to sort after rank - PM system - User details - User posting details - More Forum categories when needed - User signature - Polls

Thats what got to my mind at a first glance, hope you can use it!

EDIT: And a easy way for us noobs to create lists like MATT51723 did :P

I just thought of something: I've always been the maniac shouting "Why do you need such a big sig? It's bigger than your post !" and I have to say that I always lose this debate, but I'm never against decisions like capping the sig/avatar dims and sizes to avoid what I call thread obfuscation and redundant mini-movies in posts. You know. I'll probably have to do with it anyway. Whatever, I said it. I won't do it again =P

Thanks for getting back to us on that stuff man. And definitely a Users Online would be a "great" addition. There's no rush though - so you guys take your time.

As my grandpappy used to say - "Do it right the first time, you ain't gotta do it again!"

Eh, and I'm sure we will come up with all kinds of crap for you guys to do...but take it all in stride...and don't rush it! I have a lot of experience as a Forum Admin...so I know how hectic things can get when the community wants stuff.
