While I continue to weigh my options about upgrading the site....we might still be able to give this old girl some new life. If there is a feature you'd like to see added OR if there is a current site function or feature you'd like to see revamped, post in here.

PLEASE keep this thread on topic. I'll be nuking shit that dont belong.

List so far:

  • Revamp of the attachment system - either by including IMGUR access or making the default one not a piece of shit.
  • Social medial log in (register with FB / log-in using FB credentials)
  • Better social sharing options

I think integrated sharing would be good. Not that I use it.

How about the ability to use social accounts to log in. Not that I use it.

agree on the social media logins (FB, Google, etc). I won't use it but it could speed up registration process and remove some steps for people.

did we ever have the discussion regarding a discord/irq chat TCG room setup? or was that decided against due to possibly taking content responses away from the site?

(although might make shooting the shit more entertaining)

Expedition Portal has a different way to do new posts that might be of interest.... Especially on slow days here. Rather than only new posts it always displays 10 pages of new posts.

10 pages might be excessive but 5 might work. It would get people looking at topics a bit more for a second or third look..?

Did they social media sharing get shot down then or maybe?

That chat used be quite a hot spot on the site but now its more or less a ghost town. Live Feed is the one feature I use constantly...I'd be lost without it.

What should I do if I'm a publisher or creator?
If you are a publisher, or planning to verify as a publisher with Brave, you can sign up here. If you are already signed up, you need to use your login to your Brave Rewards publisher account to add your Uphold account and receive earnings that are transferred to your Uphold account by the 8th of every month.

Brave browser users can contribute to and tip their favorite content creators at any time privately, and their contributions are made available to content creators participating every month as earnings.
What is a "verified" publisher?
Before a publisher is able to receive contributions, they need to demonstrate that they control their domain (e.g. “example.com”). Brave uses a challenge-response protocol for this purpose.

If the exchange is successful, we know that our automated systems are communicating with the publisher who controls the domain. Brave Software neither endorses nor disavows sites that verify; we report whether they have verified or not.

Exactly don't hide it and expand it.

Go look here:

https://www.expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/no-way-bro-sick-custom-off-road-expedition-overland-trailer-for-sale.201629/

Every post has the share button in the upper right with 8 ways to share and its at the bottom in the footer too. Nice and clear and easy. If you want content to spread you have to make it available.

Discord could actually be a good outlet to use to tie into our gamers in the community. I know i've played with [MENTION=95]Fish[/MENTION] and [MENTION=3831]Shadow99[/MENTION] and have used voice comms via discord with them. Along with obviously anyone on xbox voice comms. I've also been using discord a lot more with our group of friends to just sit in and chat while we're doing late night work or just sitting around doing nothing :dunno:

So we can talk to each other while we post? Video chat an option? :pedobear:

I do believe I made a TCG Discord for the last year's fantasy football draft so we could all talk. No one joined. :tear:

Here is a link to join it. I made it a perminant link instead of a temporary one and if [MENTION=5]Mook[/MENTION] wants to take it over, obviously TCG is his site. I was just trying to get something I thought would be cool off the ground.
