Hey, once more and again, Armorgamers brothers!

Here are some things that just came through my mind that could be added while surfing some other community.
Note: Their purpose is not to improve the performance/utility of the forum, just little miscellaneous things that make something a little nicer.

- A mood status. Something that a user could select to appear under his name. Like "Feeling Lucky!" or "Feeling Happy!" or "Excited". You got the idea.
- Emoticons! Really, who doesn't like them? *prepares for a wave of "I don't!" comments*. Not too many, but the basic ones like :3 :| could, I think, be created, for the visual aesthetic of the forum
- The post Appreciation button as I suggested not so long ago.
- A Table bbcode? I really do not know whether we can build a table by HTML or not, but I really doubt html isn't filtered in the comments. A table would be really nice to have.

And that's all for now. I also wanted to suggest the "Edit" button for posts but it's been kicked away so, yeah, I guess it won't get added any soon.

I also have some ideas for over-all site improvements and features to be added but I have to think over them as some of them are just personal wishes that I'd love to see added to a website.

Cheers!

A little too social media-esque, don'tcha think?

Emoticons! Really, who doesn't like them?


Have you been to forums that use them? They always end up looking clunky and forced. I've seen 1 forum able to pull it off.

And, it might just be me, but emotes on a forum seem juvenile.

- A Table bbcode? I really do not know whether we can build a table by HTML or not, but I really doubt html isn't filtered in the comments. A table would be really nice to have.

In a lot of forums there's the [ table ] BBcode where you can build tables out of BBcodes instead of html.
.. just like this one! http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_tables.asp

And about the emoticons - that's why I suggested just the basic ones; I know that if there are too many they start to become annoying and childish - but then again, that's my personal preference.

And probably the mood would be media-esque, but the area is so empty and, yeah, something could be added there. But THEN AGAIN, the simplest is always the best.

Yeah, it indeed works, I just did not link it using the BBCode. I hate when that happens.

How does it work exactly? 'Cause in the link I'm seeing, First name, Last name, and posts. Is it suppose to look organized?

That's just an example. You can create the table by writing bbcodes, and, yes, instead of making something like this

Name | Age
X | Y
You'd have it organised.
