    How about we uncensor the phrase T1nyp1c so all the art people don't look like idiots when they post pictures of their work that turn up as [IMG] tags with the word starred out instead of an image?

    Case in point, my sig and my art thread http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthr...on-Fakedex-etc

    I suggest you start moving your pictures over to another hosting service, because there's no way Serebii will agree to uncensoring it. That's just the truth of the matter.

    Unfortunately it is not. They have repurposed many links before and become images that are inappropriate, and as such, we got yelled at for it, and are still trying to resolve the situation.

    Just use a place like imgur or minus. They don't repurpose their urls.

    Alright, so Ive asked about this a few times and have never gotten an answer:

    Why are there no avatars for the Official Sugimori Artwork of 90% of the gen three Pokemon?

    Id like to suggest that these be added.

    Repost hopefully in the right forum now ;

    The green background and black font, is very tiring for me to look at. I was relived when I figured that I actually could change atleast on the forum. But would it be possible sometime in the future to apply skin change on the main paige too?

    First, Good news: I've had a look at Serebii's code for the Main site: The "skin" can be changed without affecting the site too much. The Main site pages use CSS http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CSS which can be used to "format" a website to give a unified look.

    Bad news: Most sites that use CSS don't allow you to change the formatting on the site, with ease. Serebii is the only Person to do stuff for the site, plus I can see he doesn't update stuff that often. (While I was looking at the info I saw hints of Serebii using a version of software that stopped updating in 2001. )

    Addons Can however help.. This will depend on the Browser and the plug ins. I don't use them, but there is at least one with a "Preset" for Serebii.net http://userstyles.org/styles/30193/serebii-net-clean-up - Serebii or I can not be held accountable for any damage to your PC.

    I only use that programme as a text editor for the hotkeys It's just a text editor.

    As for a change in the layout, the way I have to have the site is have it as static as possible in order to keep it sustainable. It costs a lot of money to run, and as such, having dynamic features like that is tricky.

    I am hoping to update the layout with a new look (though relatively similar to how it is now) towards the end of the year, which will make the colours a bit better, but don't expect too much of a change. The colour scheme is staying the same, they'll just be softened somewhat.

    Okay, a few suggestions:

    A. Can the word Nazi be banned, or censored? Especially within the context of a "grammar Nazi" it still is really offensive. For people with certain heritages, it is just as offensive as the N-word for Afro-American people, or the F-word for homosexual people. Especially the usage of 'grammar Nazi' excludes the fact that many people of Jewish, Gypsy and other European descent were treated horribly and that the Nazi's were guilty of genocide. You can be picky at faulty grammar, but please leave any mention that explicitly relates to genocide out of it.

    B. Is there any way for the reputation system to include the name of the one who gave the reputation point? Often times when people give a positive or a negative reputation, the discussion is best conducted in PM-form afterwards. Instead, we now have people stating "to whom gave me that negative rep." etc. I personally find that it breathes a form of hostility into the forum.

    C. Does vBulletin allow for the possibility for a 'Like This'-system?

    Cheers,

    Loc.

    I have a few suggestions:

    First I would like to suggest a public ban list of banned members and the reasons why they were banned but only viewable by members. Another suggestion is that we add more background skins maybe of other legendary pokemon.

    And I suggest adding the limit of PMs that can be stored in the inbox. And I also suggest some more regulations on the misc. subforums and disallow hateful remarks to religious members and other groups already included.

    I'm not sure that this is possible with the current Forum system, and keep everyone safe. As former staff, a large amount of "Ban Reasons" made in the past only make sense if you had access to deleted posts, or see stuff that we removed before the ban, or be a person involved in the banning. I can say for certain that at one point there was at least 10 bans per day, but a large amount of those were spam bots. Currently, the only way I know also posts the offending content with the reason for the ban, I should point out that Serebii nor I want to do that. If it did happen, I'd think it would bring out some very nasty elements of certain members, and staff will be forced to take action, which most likeystart a nasty spiral of destruction.

    Skins are made by Razor leaf, I'm not 100% on what can go where, so what you ask may be impossible.

    There is a PM Limit already, set at 200 PMs per user. Staff have a higher limit, but then they use alot more PMs. As for Misc subforums, I've spend years trying to ignoring it, plus there have been alot more issues in the past.

    A. I'm going to leave this one to the staff, I personally think Hydrohs would have to comment on it..

    B. This is an option that Rep system allow user to see who gave them rep. According to who those been there when it was here last time, It used to be a nightmare to manage.

    C. Yes it can, but it may just be plug in which Serebii doesn't like, plus we already have one.. The Rep system.

    A. He's the worst offender -.-
    B+C. Then why not do away with the rep-system in favor of the like-feature? The rep-system obviously fosters annoyance, while a like-feature would foster positivity.

    I go to different forums, and barely do I see any other forum that harbors so much animosity then this place, sad but true in my opinion. Last night, I got a neg-rep stating: "So much hatred man" when I did not have any hate inducing remark in my posts at all..

    Hydrohs' signature came up a total of one time before in a complaint to mods in the years he's had it as a signature, and it was decided that as Grammar Nazi is a frankly common internet term which isn't intentionally offensive then it's fine. I don't see that decision changing as nothing has changed about the signature, nor have I seen any use of the term that's rude or offensive. (Having a Polish heritage I'm not at all offended or am reminded of genocide and etc from the term alone).
    B+C. Then why not do away with the rep-system in favor of the like-feature? The rep-system obviously fosters annoyance, while a like-feature would foster positivity.
    Another rep system or like system would require an external plugin to the vB system, and we hardly add any. That's due to Joe's preference and previous difficulties adding others. The current rep system however is built into the base vB system, I believe.

    If you have a rep you feel is unwarranted, report it to a mod via PM and they'll look into it. A bad rep doesn't mean that it can't also 'foster positivity', or only fosters annoyance. A liek system however only allows you to be positive, which in a sense is more restrictive.


    Also - we're not displaying ban reasons of members to other members. Infractions and bans are private, and vast majority of the time it's nobody else's business why so-and-so got banned or for how long. No need to glorify that info, so to speak.
    And I also suggest some more regulations on the misc. subforums and disallow hateful remarks to religious members and other groups already included.
    If you see a rule breaking post like people being rude to others/other groups, report it. Not sure what more regulations are needed that wouldn't cover insults or the like for that section, care to give specific examples?

    I've gotten into the spriting community lately, and they work really hard on these X and Y region sprites. They already have some finalized, for example, Dedenne, the Goomy line, and Froakie. I thought that after they complete some more, it would be cool if they could become avatars! They make the backsprite and shiny sprite, too.
    Here's the link for all of the finished ones.

    The thing is, the reputation system is also restrictive, in that there is no way to respond to comments made, even when the person would have a legitimate response. It just seems like an easy way for people to dodge a discussion. They can post essentially whatever they want there (and they do), and there's no way to reply.

    I apologize to sort of re-posting this; I don't know if it was overlooked, but I think this is a really good idea. I think we would benefit from a thread devoted to HG/SS(Apricorn), Dream Ball and Safari Ball pokemon trading in the 6th Gen Forums. I have spoken to several of people who, like me, have a bunch of pokemon in Apricorn/Safari/non-HA Dream ball females (I have about 3 boxes worth of just Apricorn ball pokes, another 4 for dream ball), and it is a massive pain to go into each individual pokemon's thread to post, especially if I have to update the posts to reflect what I'll trade them for. Just updating the Totodile, Chikorita and Cyndaquil posts is taxing after I whittle down my requests. Rather, a simple list post of females in their respective pokeball would be much simpler for both people that have, and, people looking for these pokemon! The reddit trading board is filled with people trading/requesting "Bank ball" females; and I think a dedicated thread for legitimately obtained Apricorn/Sport/Safari/Non-HA Dream ball females would be a good idea.

    Sorry, and thank you for your time once again

    Is there a SPPF idea thread?

    I couldn't find one, so I'll just post it here instead.

    I think it would be nice to have that green light (to see whether the person is online), when you are sending them a VM via the 'View Conversation' link. I would like to know if the person will reply quickly, or whether I should just goo offline and come back later.

    Just an idea though!

    The green light turns off like ten minutes after the person has gone offline, so it wouldn't be too accurate; you'd be waiting ten minutes for your quick reply.

    Given how often the "has my PM sent? It isn't in my sent box" question pops up (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthr...IVATE-MESSAGES), is it possible to set it so sent PMs are automatically saved/that option is automatically checked 'yes'?
