  1. Site Backup Facility

    It would be great to have a site backup facility so that guild admins can store their member posts and pics and forum material and private pages of-site in the event of an emergency.

    We have looked into this, but it is not something we’re currently planning to add more functionality to; the Lockbox ensures that forum posts aren’t immediately deleted, but other content would need to be manually backed up.

  2. Award System and Homepage Music Improvements

    Hello Guild Launch,

    I am pretty new to Guild launch but I do plan to stay for a couple of years here. I do have some suggestions that come from myself and my clan. I know that some of my ideas may not be possible for how the websites are designed, but I want to just throw some ideas out there and maybe you will think of a few ways it is possible.

    First is the award layouts, I feel that there could be a couple of improvements.

    I do like the Awards widget that you can have on your…

  3. Allow admin ability to opt out of emailed weekly updates for entire membership

    This feature has resulted in fewer members posting, as they are uncomfortable with their posts being highlighted in emails like this. And while you say it's linked to forum privileges, we've become uncomfortable using our own officer forums because we're not confident it is working that way. We already have a newsletter we send on occasion and just want to be able to remove this feature entirely OR have some control which forums the posts are pulled from.

    This isn’t something we currently plan to implement as an admin-side feature, but if the posts/threads that users see is based on their permissions on the site.

    If there are cases where users are seeing posts that they would not be able to see on the site, please forward an example to us at support@guildlaunch.com and our developers will definitely look into it!

  4. Shared Alliance calendar

    The following proposal is to help ease the various allied sites' ability to share the information found on their alliance calendar.

    The system as stands is useful, but it could be more user-friendly if it allowed allied sites to see the alliance calendar events on their own sites' calendars.

    - It is easier for an average user to go to one site--their kin/guild/clan/et al--to learn what they want to learn. These sites, on average, are used during people's free time which is precious to most folks. The more efficiently the information is dispersed, the more free time they have to…

  5. Have an "Undo" option in Admin Area

    How often have you done something in Admin that has had an unexpected side-effect? How often have you done something and then thought "oops - what did I do there?!"

    For those of us who are complete numpties ... is it possible to have an "undo" option throughout the admin panel?

    We may revisit this in the future, but it is not something we’re currently planning to implement.

  6. Add a Search Option to Admin area.

    Adding a search bar to locate features in the admin area and an auto navigate feature. When you've located the feature, clicking on it will take you to the TAB that it is on; Not necessarily to execute the feature (juust a suggestion.. you guys would probably have a better idea on that). I love all the features of the site, but when I haven't been on for a week or so.. I forget where they are located and get a little frustrated having to find them again. I do love your how to videos, but I kinda feel like…

    This is not currently planned functionality, but there are plans in the future to put a Bookmarking feature in place where commonly used tabs can be easily accessed by the users.

  7. Roster Import History Reports

    I would really like to be able to run reports to show the character import history showing which dates they were added or removed, the dates characters were updated and what was updated. As of now I only see a summary of what took place in the last import but without any specific detail.

  8. Guild Audit Undo

    I would like the ability to undo actions from the guild audit part of the admin section. This way, people who have either inadvertently left the guild on the site or been accidentally (or even if intentionally removed without complete agreement from admins) can be re-associated with the guild without having to fill out a new application or use the launch code.

    This is an interesting feature, but there’s too much room to abuse it the way you’re describing. An undo button would let an admin force a player into coming back to the guild site, even if they had left intentionally. If a confirmation were needed, it would effectively be the same as the Launch Code.

  9. Admin only custom pages

    Can you look into setting up a 3rd permission on custom pages. Right now it has Public, and Member visibility. It would be quite useful if there was a 3rd Admin Visibility. so only members that are flagged Admin can view the page's

    This isn’t currently planned, but you can do something similar with an admin-only forum.

  10. Lock left column and bottom scroll bar in Guild Permission Admin page

    I would be really helpful when I am managing Permissions if the Left column would stay on the screen no matter how far I scroll to the right. I also think the lower scroll bar need to be visible the whole time so you can scroll left and right at anytime instead of having to scroll all the way to the bottom.

  11. Use an open login format or create one

    I would like to see an open login format used (such as OpenID), or making a public login tool like that for GuildLaunch accounts, so we can allow GuildLaunch users to log in on third-party (or homemade) tools while the user authentication is still checked by GuildLaunch's login system.

  12. Guild Name Flash Movie Appearance Controls

    I would like to see a way of controlling which pages (i.e. only the home page - instead of all of them) the guild name flash movie appears. The flash movies can get a bit much if seen over and over again. They are mostly appropriate for the homepage and not anywhere else. With that, maybe a control for a secondary title for other pages than the home page. Thank you!

  14. Don't Drunk the Kids

    I have been role playing for almost 40 years. I remember when ... and that is enough said. That being the case I like a variety of RPG experiences. My gaming clan is a multi-gaming clan. Our main focus right now is in The Secret World, Star Trek Online, and Star Wars: the Old Republic. One of those games is rated as Mature in the ESRB or PEGI 18. Some games are even rated Adult Only (in example: Call of Duty World at War). Many games are now also rated Mature because those of us that started off with Pong,…

    This didn’t reach the required threshold to be bumped up to review. :( We will gladly revisit it if it’s resubmitted and gets the required votes, though!

    More information can be found here: http://guildlaunch.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/366826-how-does-the-feature-request-system-work

    There are manual workarounds for this as well – it can be managed with age-specific permission groups on the Admin Menu → Permissions → Permission Groups area of your site. Adding that and a required question on the application asking a user’s age and you can manually regulate it.

    Also, keep in mind that our TOS prohibits obscene, indecent, inflammatory, pornographic or profane material, amongst other things. More information on this can be found here: https://www.guildlaunch.com/about-us/terms-of-service/

  16. Website preview for group permissions

    Hi, it would be nice to have an overview of the website in the permissions area group (to see directly what the forum will look like for the different group in the forum / categories / and menu). That will help to make sure that you dont give acces to an officer categorie or forum for example (forum in this section have often the same name as other like news or general info .. )

    Sorry about my english, I am french.
    Thanks for you attention

    Best Regards

    While we don’t currently plan to implement a preview mode for permissions, I’m working on a list that outlines what all the permissions provide access to on our support wiki!

  17. Awards icons on the Forums

    I notice this on the FAQ. I would really like you guys to take another look at this.

    Q. Why doesn't the image show in the forums?

    A. We felt that there was already a lot of space taken up with other functionality. There is limited real estate in the forum avatar area so a balance must be struck.

    We are looking into options for displaying the images here in the future.

    What I am trying to do, is use the award system to give readers on the forum a gage on how experienced the authors are. I plan to…

  19. Changing passwords is terrible

    The user flow is awful. You get a temp password (instead of a link to change your password), you have to login, but then its very unclear that you successfully logged in. At which point you have to find the place to change password? Terrible.

    Provide a link that takes you to change your password, then logs you in, then takes you to your home page, logged in.

  20. Link Edit Box

    Could you widen the "Current links" edit page? The icons to sort, delete, and edit end up running to the next line and kind of get cluttered. It looks like there is plenty of space to widen it.

    We are downplaying the Links list altogether in favor of the HTML widget to make things more straightforward.
