I agree. There should be a group called "Wiki Contributors" or something like that. It would be one of the lower-class groups, but it would be good for people who contribute a decent amount to the wiki and for them to be recognized as contributors. Also, it would encourage people to contribute to the wiki, since it would be somewhat easy to join (theoretically, of course. You administrators allow people to join however you want) because all people would have to do is contribute a fair amount to the wiki.

This sounds good too, whatever works really. The medals suggestion could also help with this too since there was discussion about wiki related medals.

I saw this on talkhaus
"Also you guys should get an actual name or something because having to say "the SMBX community" to refer to you is dumb. How about SMBXhaus or SMBXCentral"
I don't agree with the tone but I agree with the message. "The SMBX conmunity" creates ambiguity not only in general but between this and the 2009 forums.

...and if I were to be honest I would say it sounds sorta hubristic for someone (Joey's the main example, but if Quill called this "SMBX community" on mfgg I would still be bothered) to claim that this is "the" forum. Not as in "the most popular SMBX forum" which would be true, but the idea that that popularity MAKES it "the SMBX forum"

Eh as far as I know there are no other claimants to "The SMBX forum" title at this point - Super Mario Universe (reghrhre and CaptainSyrup's forum, for those of you who don't know) is a general Mario forum though it includes an SMBX section, and all of the other former competitors for the title, including Knuxforums, are closed and/or deleted at this point. Doesn't seem like a problem to me.

As for a site name though that seems like a fair enough point - I suppose we could use a name of some kind. SMBXCentral sounds pretty good to me but I feel like people would get us confused with SMWCentral, probably not the best. SMBXhaus is just silly but I think the guy who said it knew that.

I would support a more "legitimate" name for this forum though. Whoever said this made a lot of sense.

Well if it counts the 2009 forum is usually called the SMB.org forum, Knux's forum was called Knuxforums, and this site has been called the SMBX.org forum. Each have their own name but generally people from "the community" call this "the community" if that makes sense.

Well the things we need are medals of course, a wiki contributors group, gfx page updated, so more staff live game masters and administrators (not that many admins though, just like 3 more), more level desihners because there are a lot of level designers but not in a group, people to put a stop to joke levels, more mafia games, a gfx maker group, smbx updaters, and an option to be put on vacation. (Maybe, idk for the vaction.)

SMBXCentral could be called because of the Youtube channel:

What we appear to need is a certain group responsible for managing the forum's YouTube Channel and the Wiki itself. A group that does what the Staff is unable to focus on for the moment. Even if temporal, a supportive group that could lend a hand. That's what I think it would save some work to the staff and speed up things a little bit.

I don't think that "the SMBX community" is a dumb way to refer to us. I've seen people say "the SMBX forums" or just "SMBX". We don't really need a name like what's been suggested.

It is, though.

Seems like the time isn't very accurate. Maybe try using this code???

Code: Select all

<div align ="left">
<span id=tick2>
</span>
<script>
function show2(){
if (!document.all&&!document.getElementById)
return
thelement=document.getElementById? document.getElementById("tick2"): document.all.tick2
var word ="Time";
var Digital=new Date();
var hours=Digital.getHours();
var minutes=Digital.getMinutes();
var dn="PM";
if (hours<12)
dn="AM";
if (hours>12)
hours=hours-12
if (hours==0)
hours=12
if (minutes<=9)
minutes="0"+minutes;
var ctime= word+": "+hours+":"+minutes+""+dn;
thelement.innerHTML="<b style='font-size:14;color:blue;'>"+ctime+"</b>"
setTimeout("show2()",1000)
}
window.onload=show2
</script>
</div>
Just a suggestion on an update for the website. ;) Also That code works.
Just your average user...

Does anybody have suggestions for stuff to put on the episodes/graphics pages? I'm already going to include links to previously featured content as well as official episodes/CGFX pack, but I'm sure we could find some other things to put there.

I think that once castlewars finished the TCGA Remake, it should be featured.

This may be a really stupid idea, but here goes.

You should have Graphics Judges. They would judge graphics depending on how good they are. If they are broken, messed up, or just downright horrible, they would go in the trashcan. Then you could have different sub-forums for other levels of brilliance, and then a graphics pack subforum.

Again, this might be a stupid idea that shouldn't even exist, but hopefully it's a good one.

Speaking of the trashcan, I stand by my assertion that that name is plain patronizing.

We seriously need a mammoth place, who agrees?

Oh, and I think the there should be a rule that limits the maximum size of images in the signature, or the signature in general. It's rather annoying to search anything on it or just pass through when the user's signature is so damn big.
