PostSubject: Announcement Box   Wed Jun 13, 2012 3:18 pm

Does anyone actually read it, or check it? Or is it just taking up space? I've been thinking that we should get rid of it, but I want other opinions first.

I check and read it regularly. Though I think it would be more functional if we made constant updates, posting things that members might miss due to not being in the same thread/forum as well as new threads springing up and changes in overall formatting. I will assist where I can.

It's right there, kinda hard to miss >.> But like Caleum said it'd be better if it were updated >.< If I knew how you did that.....Alright, I should make a forum just to practice the admin panel XD

Well the way that I did it is a code I made. I don't really want to let anyone else update it because they could mess it up. Plus, I need to be on a computer to update it.

Ah DX Well, that's a good reason XD Hm..Idk, because we do need some kind of announcement system, the question is actually what will work the best? Maybe, we should add a poll or something to this thread. See how many pay attention and if they find it useful ect..

Nah, there is no other way to make an announcement box without getting really technical, that's a waste of time IMO. If anyone has an opinion, they can comment about it. >.>

I think we are slowly creating a lot of duplicate topics. I think the announcement box is better than the topic we have. All we need to do is tell people they're required to read it. We can never really force it down their throat, though, no matter how much we'd like to.

Hm...One possible way of getting announcements out would probably be to use the Global Announcements we already have. Those appear in all forums, thus no matter where you are, you should catch notice of them. Things that do not take or receive constant attention tend to fall and slip under the rug. The same with the Announcement Box. Update it constantly, even with little things (big things aren't the only things people need to know about), and it'll become more and more apparent that it needs to be checked regularly. If you don't want others fooling around with it, either just allow your Co-Admin to help, or set up a template (Or I will if you like) for us to send to You the information and things we want to see in the Announcements.

And, Mu-chan, if you want others to post here, get their attention. No one will know if you don't tell them. I'll post in the OOC for others to take a look inside and provide a link.

Hey, people are supposed to check for announcement threads here anyways. n.n Also, I can't really do much on my phone. I may be getting my laptop back today though, so I can pop some announcements in there later.

I never check in here....>.< But I can certainly start. But again, that just goes to show my point. This forum gets little attention and activity. I didn't think to even look inside because I didn't notice anything going on in here until I caught wind of this thread and got curious. I hope you do indeed get your laptop back. If not today, soon. We need our Mugetsu-chan back~ =D ^w^

But if the image for the forum turns blue, that means its been posted in. o.o I thought people would catch wind of that...

Maybe, Mu-chan. I am simply saying I did not notice. Though I DO notice when something comes up in the Latest Topics scroll. And that shows up no matter where you are posting in. Take advantage of this maybe? I didn't know the image turned blue when a new post came in. That's something for me to pay more attention to.

I always use the scrolly thing, don't worry. It's awesome really.

I rarely look at the color of the icon to determine when a forum has had a new post, cause that new post might not actually be "new". Instead I pay attention to the time when threads were posted in.

Well if you had from the start always checked whej something was posted in and clicked all the new posts, then that wouldn't happen. I think I'm the only one who does that though.
