    Can you give a full guide on how to use tables in the faq section, if it does work? I have to go trial-and-error to try it out.

    So far I can only do the table indent, and that's all:

    Example:
    Code:
    table
    Results:
    table

    Tables never worked on the old forums (or at least how I understand them to on vBulliten), it hadn't crossed my mind to test them on the new forum.

    No, still doesn't work how I understand them to, so if they work in a diffierent way, I'd have to check it out. There's such a little demand for them, it's never been a big priority.

    That may happen after all the styles are done but don't hope too much on it. (Other people have also raised it too). I would want them to be clearer too though.

    Weren't they banned because they messed with the formatting of signatures?

    PLEASE remove the rule banning Super Smash Bros. threads in Nintendo Discussion.


    This post speaks for me in this case.

    I agree with everything stated in the post I linked to. It's been 3 and a half years now, and we can't discuss it in our social groups, where ARE we supposed to discuss it? In addition, it has been confirmed that another game in the series WILL be released, when more details come, well... again, where are we supposed to discuss it?

    Just because Rave isn't a mod any more doesn't make his decision any less valid. Smash Bros threads invariably spiral out of control into bitching and fighting, and they never end well. Just look at the last one, there was pages of debate and flaming. People seemingly aren't able to control themselves enough to post properly.

    It's really up to the mods, but the last thread showed that nothing good comes from those threads.

    If you look up any of the past Smash Threads, you'd see the same thing. Members posting "guess list" and movesets, then the Tourny guys come with their no items bs, then the causal players until all of that turns in a massive flame war generating 100's of posts in just a few days.

    Smash threads are banned because SPPF members don't know how to control themselves in them, it's doesn't matter how long the rule has been there, mods have made exceptions to the rule multiple times in the last three years and the same thing has happened.

    Sort of like the Competitive Battling section and the 'banned Pokemon' bs. So why not ban the Competitive Pokemon battling discussion too? Seems kind of hypocritical to me. And I'm not trying to argue against having a competitive battling section. I understand why we have that. I was simply making an observation.

    That's not even a good comparison, this site is based around Pokemon. There's going to be a section for it because of demand, even of there are a few morons making a mess, the majority aren't. Unlike Smash threads where 90% of the post are pointless speculation, and arguing.

    I made the suggestion for a reason - the post that initiated the ban said 'Till then, you all have social groups, use them.' We don't even have those now, so where the h*** are we supposed to discuss the game?

    People are clearly unable to discuss SSB here, but I'm sure that there are forums galore out there where they can.

    Uh, yeah it is, since this board is pretty much the Internet voice of the Nintendo fandom. As it is, there has always been demand to allow the Smash Bros threads to continue, and there always will be, hence the above post. But as I was saying before, my post wasn't necessarily a suggestion or a criticism, just an observation on something that's kind of an unfortunate fact of life.

    And this validates that thread that was locked a little bit ago, because this is one of the points that I brought up there. Telling people to leave a site because they have some constructive criticisms, instead of listening to them, is unprofessional and makes you look elitist. All it does is makes you look like you really don't care.

    I was talking about here on Serebii. I don't want to have to make yet another username, password, etc. etc. just to talk about a game. I would imagine there's other people who would agree.

    I agree, sort of. But in this case, it's kind of a trap.

    Despite what I said above (and yes, it's true unfortunately), the unfortunate fact is, I've seen those arguments happen. So in reality, there really is no telling if they'll start up again. Maybe they won't, but given what I've seen here, they could. That is why I can't directly suggest re-allowing those threads. Maybe if there was a section with <groan> rules to prevent that. And then the site becomes even LESS streamlined.

    But at the same time, arguments could start for almost any reason on this site. For instance, bring up move limits in the Anime section and you'll turn most threads into arguments, almost guaranteed. You won't even be meaning to do it, but it'll still happen. I've seen this happen here too. I've been there when it's happened, and I'm sure the Mods have too. That Spyro thread in the games section where Joe had to personally intervene to stop an argument that had gone borderline flame war. That Sonic Overrated thread that seems to have been made just to solely bash one or two members. These are just examples. It can be anything.

    And therein lies the trap, and by extension, my point. What do you do? Do you just ban discussion about everything that could potentially start an argument? You wouldn't have much of a forum if you did that. Do you let it go and have it turn into a flame war? Not exactly a pleasant alternative. So yeah, not an easy issue.

    Way to blow it massively out of proportion. We've back up our point perfectly. People here are, in general, unable to talk about SSB without it turning into a spammy flame war. I never told him to leave the site, I told him to find another place where people can talk about the game properly.

    Furthermore, "bring back Smash threads" is hardly constructive criticism. As jb#s and I have said, SSB threads invariably spiral into a cesspit of spam and arguing. It's not the mod's fault that people her are too immature to handle it properly.

    Maybe if you could actually back up your "constructive criticism" things would be changed, but so far all you've said is 'BRING BACK SMASH THREADS'. Also, you can't see the mod forum, so complaining that your criticisms are ignored really falls flat on its face, doesn't it?

    Well it's crap that you can't discuss a game because of other member's behaviour, but that's just the way the cookie crumbles I guess.

    Telling someone to find another site is implying that they should leave this site. It is unprofessional, elitist and doesn't do a thing to prove any point. Maybe you weren't intending for it to sound that way, but that's how it sounds to anyone that the post is directed at.

    And I'm not saying to bring back those threads. I understand full well why they're not allowed.

    But it's like I said, arguments can start about anything, whether it's move limits in the Anime section, Sonic, or Spyro, or the banned Pokemon Smogon lists. Where is the line drawn on this? Do you just disallow talk about anything that could start an argument? You wouldn't have much of a forum if you did that. So yeah, all I'm saying is it's not an easy issue. If I had a point to make, there it is, plain as day.

    The arguments in that thread started because most of that forum didn't like those 2 users. With smash, everyone is fine until someone says something like "Cloud should be in the next SSB", then it all falls apart from there.

    Somehow, I doubt that makes it alright to start a flame war. It's just sad that it took Joe intervening to get it to stop.

    But as I said, that was just an example.

    Just like they have on Steam, there should be an arrow beside the names of everyone who has ever had a name change beside their name on their profile. When you click this arrow, it brings up a small list detailing all of their past usernames.

    I don't think that's possible.

    That system is relativity new, and doesn't track names before they implemented the system, plus the Steam Profile isn't VB4, it's the Steam system. I used to be Windytwit several years before I changed to Nutter, but it isn't listed. Mind you at that time, All I had was a profile with no games. But then all there was TFC and CS:S, only a few month as Orange box.

    Actually, Valve still uses VB3 for their forum known by Kritzkast team as SPUF.

    We still have the name change thread around.

    How about increasing the file size rule for signatures to 1 Mb, or at least for .gifs. It's a little irking when there are people with 500+kb gifs and the only reply I've heard on it is that the mods didn't see it or they have better things to do and that we should report it. If that's the case, then perhaps we have better things to do than report them.

    And it's not just one person either, you can easily go into the the most populated in threads of GPD and pull out tons of people with obvious rule breaking sigs that they have had for weeks, even months. I know, I've actually done it. And that's a section with the most mods so the 'mods didn't see them' thing is kinda weird.

    500kb is enough to lag my computer with my horrible school internet as it is, there's no way i'd be up for increasing the limit even more and make pages take twice as long to load. plus, there is just no need for such a massive file, 500kb is already large enough.

    GIFs that are over the limit often dont get as noticed by mods or reported by other users because if you have fast internet, there often isn't a huge difference in load time between something that's like 200kb or 600kb, as opposed to something like a huge picture that will always catch your eye. but for me, i do notice a difference, and i always check the filesize if it looks like it's taking a longer amount of time than it should. for reporting signatures, if the way you're currently reporting isnt working, you can try pming the mods who post in the signature check thread as they tend to be the ones who deal with signatures more.

    be sure to read the rules of every section before posting ;)

What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this.

    But this seems a little iffy. You don't want to increase it because it might take twice as long to load your pages? That like saying because I access this site from a netbook that the height and width rule should be adjusted to fit my needs because my screen has a terrible pixel resolution.

    Doesn't seem right to opposed a suggestion based on the inconvenience of the minority.
