  1. Allow subforum posts to update forum post count.

    Subforum "Topics" and "Posts" do not show totals under the main forum navigation screen. It just says "0" Topics, "0" Posts. It looks like the forum is dead, when it is far from it.

    This is not something we currently plan to implement, but if there is still interest we can revisit it in a later release!

  2. Global Forum Announcements/Stickies

    It would be nice to have the option to create global stickies or announcement threads that show up at the top of every forum in their own seperate area apart from the threads that are default to the forum. This would be so they stand out. This way, for example, a guild that has terms of use or something admin related, it would be readily available for viewing. Reference startrekonline forums for details at http://forums.startrekonline.com They have a prime example of what I talking about for their Terms of Service.

    We are not currently planning to implement this as a Forums feature, but you could do something similar with a News widget at the top of the forums (or the bottom, underneath the content, for longer ones like a ToS) that pulls the announcement you’d like to display.

  3. Add a function that will allow the forum admin to add background to specific threads.

    Good day good sirs and beautifull ma'ams. Who ever is reading this.

    The title says it!

    I will try and explain the idea that popped up just now.

    (Either I am a terrible "searcher" or your search-engine does'nt have this in history)

    The idea is that you make it possible to add backgrounds to specific forum threads.

    For an example.

    I want to make a forum thread just for crafting! Yay! I made it! duh!? How boring... I want something that makes people want to click it! How about a picture of an anvil and a hammer! yay! search search

    We’re looking into other customization options, but this is not something we are planning to implement.

  4. Let us disable post count on certain forum sections

    Some forums have off topic sections. Some forums also have post count based ranks/rewards/recognitions. How about being able to disable post count on certain forum sections?

  5. Allow Admins to Set Default # of Topics to Show in a Forum

    How can I set the number of topics displayed on each forum page? For instance, I want 30 topics displayed on my 'member discussion' forum.

  6. Limiting nested quotes

    It would be a nice feature to reduce forum post lengths if the quote button only quoted the quoted poster's response (without nested quotes). Better yet, the option to define how deep nested quotes would go (ie 3 quotes down the tree)

    This was brought up in a development meeting, but is not going to be implemented as a feature.

  7. Implement the ability to enter HTML Title elements for forum/subforums.

    Implement the ability to enter HTML Title elements for forum/subforums. This will allow a mouse over of a forum name to also be used to describe what the forum/subforum is for. This will be especially helpful for subfourms so ppl can quicky get an idea what a subforums is for without having to drill down into the main forum.

    We do not plan to implement HTML coding for forums and subforums at this time.

  8. Events - Calendar Widget/Calendar Colors

    I would love for a functionality that would color the current day one color and events another color.
    The event text background color could be decided by the label color as chosen by the event creator.
    Then add a different text color to events you HAVE signed up for as opposed to ones you haven't or maybe just a checkmark or symbol for the ones you have signed for for an easy overview.

    I really like the calendar/event functionality, but atm. it's really hard to notice new events on days that had events before and to see events on "today"…

    Create the ability to copy and paste an excel spreadsheet into a forum post.

  10. Allow Profile Pictures to be larger/linked to site storage quota

    Please either add a way for individuals to increase the maximum file size of their profile pic or add a way for site owners to allow users to use the site storage quota for their profile pic to allow for larger profile pics. 3mb just isn't enough.

  11. Last Seen Online widget

    This would show who has been on line in say the last 12 or 24 hours and at what time or how long ago. This would let ppl know who has been about and when. This better than the suggested member activity report. This would be for the whole clan to see.

  12. Simplify inserting of images in posts

    Today a user has to go to go to the gallery, upload an image, then use the url to insert that image in a post he or she is making. This is too much to ask for an average user.

    Instead, have the "insert/edit image" function in post editor auto load the image into a auto created forum specific gallery, and link it to the post.

  13. It would be nice to have the ability to change the forums so that the subforums show under the parent forums, such as forum xxxxxx

    it would be nice to either change or edit the forum structure so that sub forums show under the parent forums in their own block, instead of just links.

    EX:
    Forum xxxxxxxxxx
    subforum yyyyyyy
    subforum zzzzzzzz
    forum vvvvvvvvvv

    or allow the usage of forum templates from a set pool, to limit the load on guildlaunch servers.

  14. Subforums

    Subforums always appear at the top of list within a forum (pushing all posts down). Is there a way an option can be applied to push a Post above subforums (preferably the "Announce" option, but if a new/different option is available that would be fine). I would even be okay if a limit of only "1" was post allowed to be at the top (like a Forum Header Post), This would typically be used for "Read First" or "Instructions" type posts.

    While we may look at this again in the future, it is not currently a planned feature.

  15. Forum ranking text/icon placement be more customizable

    The idea goes pretty much that you're able to move the placement of forum ranking(determined by post count) or roster ranking under the profile picture instead of having em all over.
    Heres an picture example:
    http://i.imgur.com/xWyHnF2.png

    As it shows quite easily on the picture, you see that icon & text has this bad padding between them.

    TL;DR
    Ability to move ranking name like admin&registered user under and over profile picture, not over forum name.

  16. Support the new shorter Youtube URLs for embedding

    Youtube has now by default gone with the shorter URL format when trying to share videos. It would save at least one extra step to just be able to input the URL (ie: http://youtu.be/7bUbauza6-8 ) instead of trying to get the long one.

    This isn’t currently planned, but it sounds like you may be looking for an easier way to share Youtube videos in general and not specifically this feature.

    The URL at the top of the Youtube video is usable with the [youtubevideo] BBCode, so if you go to the video and copy the URL, it will save you the steps of having to click the Share button at all.

    Hope this helps!

    You can change the forum icons globally, but it is not currently planned to make it so that you can change icons for one specific forum.

  18. Make files downloadable to website

    Make it where you can download files to the website to make it easier for guilds to keep addons they use on there guild webpage

  19. Flag under Members name on Forums.

    I was talking to one of my guild members the other day and he had this idea, It would be cool if either under or next to Member names on the forums they could put a flag from the country they are from.

    This is an interesting idea and we may revisit it later, but we are not currently planning to implement it.

  20. Implement Tapatalk!

    Got this idea while testing the mobile-version of Guildlaunch.

    As an avid forumuser for many years I've found that the best way by far to efficiently read posts and post yourself on a smartphone is by using a dedicated forumapp. I'd say that be best one out there is Tapatalk (http://tapatalk.com).

    There are hundreds of forums supporting that app. The result for us end-users are WAY above what (most) of the "mobile-enabled" webinterfaces can provide.

    Do take a look at it? I'm sure using that would help us Guildlaunch-users alot when keeping up with our Guildsites.

    Thanks in…

    This is not currently planned to be implemented – our developers have looked into it in the past, but are going a different route for mobile development.
