I had an idea yesterday about how we could improve the forum. Maybe you could try and create a topic where members can put artwork, animation etc for final fantasy. Furthermore maybe it could contain fan made videos and maybe links to those videos.Maybe a qhimm youtube channel could be created where tech videos or installation video guides could be put so as to help people who have a harder time with the game or want to start creating their own mods be helped out.. i wasn't quite sure if this was supposed to be posted in general discussion or here but i think it was wisest to be posted here. nevertheless, i hope you'll take my idea into consideration. :)

It is not something I am able to change. It is built into SMF like that.

Well if I ever make a thread that needs embedded videos, could I get you to edit the posts for me(if You feel like it) so that it can have said videos?

Perhaps if it is needed. I am not going to clutter the unrelated forum with videos, but if it is ff related I may consider it.

Of course, I was thinking of making a thread that highlights all the mods with pics, movies, links, etc so that everything can be found in one consolidated thread. I know this has been done before. But the thread that holds this information needs to be HIGHLY professional.

Also If I ever got permission from all the mod owners to do such a thing, Id want the topic to be locked because its just there to showcase all the mods and link you to them, no reply is needed.

If it isn't in place already, can you make new users (either two week old accounts or less than 30 posts or so) see a "be sure to check the FAQs/rules before posting" before they start a new topic or reply? We get a lot of pointless repeat questions.

If smf can't do it then we'll just have to live with it.

I can't comment on the feasibility of this, but I can say it will have no effect; they'll ignore it the same way people ignore terms and conditions forms. Noobs gonna noob

Incoming first post/

How about a link to the home page?  I've been lurking this forum for over a year and I just now saw what the home page looks like.  And this was only because I was curious enough to type "qhimm.com" in my address bar.

/Be gentle :-\

PS - On another note I'm thinking of compiling that archive of downloads.  But is it really necessary to ask for permission to post links to someone's work if they themselves posted it to "this" forum?

If you are releasing someone elses work you should have their permission first.

Why hasn't anyone suggested to put some backgrounds??? maybe not flashy things. I can't really express how i would liked it to be changed. Right now it's simple and it's really nice. But wouldn't it make it more friendly if it had some ff picture or something??????  :| :|

I've put some effort into this list of FF7 mods-- Bootleg.

We can insert pictures in posts; but it can clog up a thread.

Can we turn on signature option like on any other forums?

We could but I am not sure it is a good idea.

It's annoying enough when I plaster my sig at the end of every post.
Can you imagine if everyone were doing it!
ACK!!! :o

Could always put some rules on it, only 1 image, no more than say, 450x150 or something.

Example using the one I made to match my avatar although it's 320x150.

i think it should be 1 line long and the text should be grayed out so it doesn't stand out too much and sig pictures like dragonninja's should be slightly smaller and streamline so it doesn't hog up too much space
