What would you like seeing added to the site?

Wed Jan 11, 2012 6:26 pm

As part of our long(ish) term goals, we'd like some feedback from you, the community.

For any of you that remember the old TLA, this is your chance to say which bits you'd like to see resurrected, and for those of you who are newer, it's your chance to see what extra you'd lie to see adding.

Basically over the next few months, we want to know what you want to see added to the website?

Do you want to see an interactive campaign in anticipation of the hobbit?
Do you want to see a 'rank' system and the old articles back?

The forums will stay as they are, it's the other parts of the website we want to hear from you about. What additional pages do you want to see and why?

Thanks for any feedback in advance!

I think a rank system like we used to have rather than the current post number based one would be an improvement, and articles are a must have (especially if the rank system is points based like on the old site).

You can already submit articles
I just haven't figured out how to show the instructions for doing that over the list of categories :(
No rank system in place though

Would it be worth making a sticky thread on how to do it then?

I'd like to see the articles being a major part of the site again, like the old website. I have a link to the old website which has been "preserved"(?) by some kind of internet screencapture archive and had some excellent articles on, which would be great on the new site.

Not sure where I'd put that sticky though, global announcement perhaps. This is the text I haven't managed to show yet:
Hello and welcome to The Last Alliance Article Archive.
Whether you are searching for a tutorial or looking for inspiration this is a good place to come.
And if you feel the archive is lacking, why not submit yourself?
In order to submit an article you need to be a registered member on our forums.
To submit go to the Admin Panel (link available on every page except the forums, top left corner below the header) and into the posts section.
Here you can submit and manage your drafts.
NOTE: Submitting a draft is the equivalent of submitting an article, unfinished work will be deleted. Prepare the article on a word processor before submitting.
Once you have submitted a Ranger will examine the draft. Then he will either publish it, ask for some changes or delete it and notify you. If your article gets rejected don’t lose hope, heed the Ranger’s message and try again.
Submitting spam will result in a locked account.

Global announcement sounds good :)


EDIT: just tried to follow the instructions you've posted, but when I click on 'admin panal' it asks me to log in, and when I try to do that it doesn't recognise my user name.

That would be because you are apparently Dnadan on the wordpress part :lol:
Guess it didn't like the ^
Will need to add that warning to the post

EDIT: it has your nickname registered as Dînadan and that's what will show in public, but the username for wordpress cut out the î
