yes active topics, then comments on news articles, im going to be directing people to the news here, i think comments are super important to draw users in further to the forums, almost as important as the news itself imo.

The comments in news. I was going to suggest that. Wink

The comments on news is a big deal. along with being able to get an email when someone replies to your news comment. This will make it more likely for new / first time visitors to get involved, bookmark and come back. Maybe even some type of vote system in the news comments as well, likes/thumbs up or down/ Comment vote ups/ rankings or what ever, just some kind of feedback on the individual comments.

thanks for all the suggestions people. Ok, so what I have decided i am going to do next is..

1. Active Topics - I really want this to be an animated JQUERY page. Which will animate all of the active topics via AJAX and PHP. Probably doesn't mean much to you guys, but similar to how the profile area shows your topics maybe. If anyone sees something on another site they like and think it could be useful please link me.

2. News - I have already started to code the comments area for news but just haven't gotten back to it.. I plan to allow comments on all news articles, but only for a limited amount of time.. (say 60 days).. That way i don't need to worry about spam. Also, i will be adding the vote up and vote down / spam options too.

I really appreciate everyone taking the time to let me know what to move forward with next. It's a big job working full-time and then near working full-time on my days off on HQ.. lol

I hope you all like what we are doing here. Oh, did you all like the search features?? Try searching up the top for your username, a game, or a news article. Each area also has custom searches.

Sweet! The new search system is awesome! Much easier to find a member /game that you are looking for.

Active Topics is definitely a great improvment also. Easy to check threads that are... well.. active Smile

One thing I didn't notice before now is the menu skin? Is this new or is it just me that haven't noticed it yet? Anyways.. it's pretty cool but so far only 2 colours. Might be cool if you could have some more options then just 2.

so that's the plan guys. I will get the comments in news working and also work on active topics.. Once i get those done i will reply and ask for more suggestions and improvements from you all.

Also keep in mind while you are cruising around the web and you find cool features on any other website, i can attempt to mimic them for us all here. If you like an effect or something in an area we will get all those suggestions knocked over next.

enjoy the site, it's slowly building up with loads of content. I think we currently have over 80+ game trailers (in HD), 500+ Screenshots and 50+ Xbox ONE Games.. cheers.

i dont like it when you post a reply and it takes you back to your post, but none of the other posts are there previous to yours. i guess its good for proof reading but it just feels foreign. maybe include a link after you post to go back to the thread as well as one just to your message?

Ditto that, I find this awkward just seeing only my post after posting. I don't like the big gray space shown either after a post but that is a little thing.

The search is just plan amazing. Love it!
