    Due to the amount of time and dedication they have put into the site, both SilVerSurFnStud and Elfen Lied have been asked to join our team here at diablo3.com

    Congrats to both of them!

    posted a message on Site suggestions (what do you want to see?)
    Here is my current progress on elfens post of sugestions:


    ok guys the whitish text the requests, green text DeMiNe0's reply and the blue text just some comments by Elfen Lied

    1.
    either bring back the shoutbox or some institute some kinda live chat a form of d3.com msn, we faithful members miss the shoutbox bad, you could have shoutbox or live chat on a seperate page only accessable by members of this site, that way guests would be able to read whats in it, that and spamming why the shoutbox was taken away wasnt it

    Done, look at the java irc client.

    cool, still some people cant access it, is Livechat/shoutbox still a possiblity

    2.
    inactive account deletion after 3 months or so, coz something really needs to be done about the abundance of inactive accounts here (sorry if it seems a little harse its just how i feel and im not the only one with this point of view)

    inactive accounts need to stay for the purpose of brining people back through mailings if we happen to find somthing more interested to add to the site. This is the reason why we have the "Active Member" count. This ensures that people know how active the site is.

    ok then, but it is annoying having all those guys just sitting there for 4 or so months and not posting

    3.
    different names other than junior member, member, and senior member (prehaps the ones i suggested in my new post names poll http://www.diablo3.com/forums/showth...ght=post+names) and if these names are choosen, a link to a page that says, what each name is and how many post you need for each (people keep asking it gets annoying, [this kind of things really should be in the FAQ, im not sure if it is])

    I think im going to go with your titles. I dont want to post a page that says when a user will get each title, because it gives a user something to spam toards. I rather just leave it as a surpise on when they'll get the rank,

    right on, change complete

    4.
    an area for people to post introductory posts, you know a seperate subsection like 'd3 chat' ''polls and surveys' also in this area should be posts detailing things new comers need to know, mostly posting rules and the like (even though this kind of info is FAQ material)

    I'll do that soon as well.

    ok, these sections really help out a lot. and they keep the hello spam out of other threads and stuff

    5.
    if it doesnt already do so, and we just dont know about it, i would like reputation to actually do something, yeh its fun to spread it around but what does it do? also does the 'X is on a distinguished Road' (mousing over the green dot in your post profile) meaning anything, coz it seems like everyone is on a distiguished path even new comers

    The reputation system was put in there just for that reason. To help users determin if somone has a good or bad rep, not to act as a reward system. I'm going to fine tune this system to work out a little better, and if i can think of some type of reward i'll think about adding it.

    hmm not really sure i have any ideas for a reward. will keep thinking/looking though, DeMiNe) ill let you if i find/think of anything

    6.
    the 5 or so things on the 'portal home' page in the top left corner that dont work either need to be deleted, or be made to work, esp the gallery and downloads

    Will do.

    lot of requests for the galleries and downloads esp from me seeing as it will make finding my fonts easier, any idea when they will be up and running

    7.
    a gallery thats full of screenshots from all the diablo series games, and a subsection of submitted char builds with pics, oh and a gallery/subsection for non diablo related pics

    THis can be done by You or other members once i get that gallery up and running.

    same as above really

    8.
    instead of just 1 top poster, show top posters, maybe 5 or so, currently one would have to go the the members list, then clicks posts to see this info,

    Maybe. Depends on if i get time to implement it.

    it is nice to see more than one top poster, i feel so lonely at the top lol

    9.
    if you change the colour/font of your posts, it should stay as the colour you choose instead of reverting back to the default

    Hell no. You know how many morons would run around with a black font on a black background?

    i see your point but it is a little annoying if you like to post with red text, having to change it everytime

    10.
    also those 4 spinning stars in the post profile, do they mean anything, i think newer member should have less, and older members should have more, i dont know maybe 1 star for every 250 posts or something like that

    Heh... Thats actually totally broken right now and is most likely going to be gotten rid of.

    ok, still something similar to what it was suppose to do would be ok (if you can get it to work)

    11.
    your mouse icon should be a wepon of sorts (sword or axe) from d2, or prehaps the classic gauntlet like in diablo

    Nope. It slows down on slower computers, and also sometimes isn't supported on other browsers.

    stink, would have been pretty cool though

    12.
    a link on the home page diectly to the information in the first post in the Silversurfnstudism post
    http://www.diablo3.com/forums/showthread.php?t=540 it is important people learn who Lord God Silver is

    And i should also link to a post about how sexy I am..

    why not, still as i said before, it is important for people to know who Lord God Silver is

    13.
    if the new names i suggested are rejected, still have a link that says how many posts are required for each level JNR member, member SNR member (people keep asking) or at least have in the FAQ

    Read my reply to your names..

    right, good call

    14.
    a link from the front page to the back story of diablo 1 and 2
    i am sick of posting that the prime evils can all exist without their soulstones, baals soulstone is smashed, and the other crap that people should know, and any other point from the storyline that has a difinite answer, eg tal rasha is dead, warrior/rogue/sorcerer from diablo are all dead

    Want to write me a full story and i'll put that up?

    working on it, it is a little bigger than a PM message, i might have to make it a post that no one but senior staff or higher can edit, then you can put a link to it from the portal home

    15.
    not really sure if this can be done, but would be nice, to have the diablo 2 soundtrack play in the background of this site, and of course you can turn it off if you want

    Again, for compatability, and bandwidth costs, im going to have to say no to this.

    yeh i see your point would have been cool though

    16.
    Not sure if its just me, but the 'contact us' page at the bottom of the home page doesnt work, it really should

    It does work, i just ignore most of the emails that are sent from it now. You have no idea how many "WHEN R D3 COM OUT!>!>!?" and "U NEED TO PUT TIS IN D3 BLIZARD!!!" emails i get per day. If you really need to talk to me, just PM me.

    very good point, well all i got was an error message, maybe it could be changed so it desplays admin usernames or something

    17.
    not sure if it exists, a link from the home page detailing how to submit pics in posts, create signatures, put a pic under your accountname in your post profile (i get tired of people asking), or alternatively put this info in the FAQ

    Make one, and i'll link to it.

    i had the screenshots for this one but lost them, i just make new ones.

    18.
    not sure how successful this would be, but some kind of insentive to stay active, other websites have points that count towards downloads you cant get anywhere else, its really annoying to see that out of the 2000 accounts on 500 are active and around 20 or so of that 500 post on a regular basis, now i know people can post everyday like some of us can, but it does seem like a waste to create an account then never use it.

    I'm going to talk to umaro about an adsence profit sharing system for active posters. This is completely up to him though.

    yeh some insentive i think is needed. it does seem like a lot of people make an account then never use it

    19.
    also it seems a lot of people are quite fond of the idea of Sliversurfnstud and i (elfen lied) to be made administrators, we seem to know our stuff (but thats your guys call).

    I'm fond of the idea as well. Let me talk to umaro first though. If everything works out, I'll start you out as senor mods first, then be promoted based on how well you do.

    cool, and i also think you guys made a good call with the people you guys promted to moderators

    20.
    the ability to merge 2 of your posts together, it should be an option not automatic like on some sites

    There allready is. A moderator has to do it though to ensure no conflicts are going to happen.

    i just thought of it looking at a lot of posts by people (mostly at the time), and thinking why dont they just merge their posts together, thats 1 person merging 2 or more of their own posts in a thread together not other peoples posts), some websites have that 'will merge posts - doublepost thing'

    21.
    newcomers to this site, should either be automatically or manually(by someone) PMed a 'hello welcome to this site' message, the should include a quick rundown of the posting rules (the important ones) and the age old 'we hope you enjoy your time here' line

    Sounds like a good idea to me. Write up a PM and send it to me, and i'll get this in place.

    done, well almost, i sent you a copy it just needed a little padding in the middle

    22.
    somewhere on this site, there needs to be these rules;
    -if you view a poll vote
    -dont reply to a poll you havent voted in
    -dont spam in polls and surveys
    -stay on topic in polls and surveys
    -and do try to stay on topic

    The first 2 i don't agree with. Thats like saying "If you live in this town you HAVE to vote for the mayer. If you don't then shut the hell up". I dont want to run a forum like that.

    i can see your point but it is annoying when you are trying to have a poll, and you see that the view number more than triples the reply number, and you sit there thinking, if people take the time to view the poll, the least they could do it vote. 2000 accounts, 20 votes. but its like 356 views, pretty shocking

    23.
    a link somewhere to the diablo font and other cool fonts
    http://www.diablo3.com/forums/showthread.php?t=564

    The perfect thing to add to our upcoming downloads page.

    cool just waiting on the page to be up and running, few more fonts since i first posted these suggestions, does get a little frustrating searching the fonts tread to find them

    23.
    change the post profile
    currently it looks like this

    Elfen Lied
    Senior Member

    i suggest it look like this now

    Title Elfen Lied(with new names)
    Paladin (with new Names)
    Administrator (if it applies)


    I guess i can do something like this.. I'll get the user titles up first.

    well the titles part is easy, trying to get the bit that comes before the username is harder, infact i dont think it can be done, which is why i was forced to change my post names. and trying to get staff rank and post name to show up is a little hard too. might take another look at it sometime when i have more time.

    was also thinking of implementing the Silversurfnstudism titles if i get time

    posted a message on Site suggestions (what do you want to see?)
    The ads are there for a reason. People DO click them when they are in a visable place like that. Since these are content related ads, people are more likely to click them because they are Diablo III (or what ever subject the thread is on) related.

    The site doesn't pay for itself. It's currently $160 dollars a month to run this server.

    If we downgraded to a shared account (lots of down time, slow load times, ect) we would be paying around $30 a month for good hosting. We rather give you the best we can while trying to make money back on ads.

    Quote from "Grievous" »
    well the ads, they should be removed, or placed at the bottom of the site, for my experience, noone will click them, and they are just anoying

    The reason we moved them to after every first post is because people just don't click on them unless they are shoved in your face.

    As for the duping programs. These ads can be filtered, so send a PM to umaro asking him to filter them out and he should be able to.

    Quote from "Aequitas" »
    They have to pay the bills somehow. I would, however, be more inclined to see them if they were in a more convenient location. I don't have a suggestion for one, unfortunately, but it goes without saying that the center of the posts is an inconvenient location. It makes them bothersome. I doubt the sponsors would mind if they were moved. You could even go with the traditional top of the page, I suppose, just underneath the Diablo3 logo, or banner, or whatever that is called.

    posted a message on New Patent for Diablo Filed by Blizzard
    cyks; who is one of our forum members, has found that Blizzard on the 9th of December 2005 filed a trademark for Diablo.

    A screen shot of the trademark page, and directions on how to get to that trademark page are posted below:

    Quote from cyks »
    The US patent office allocates search sessions per visit, so no direct links will function. Below are some directions on how to see what Sage and I see

    1st: click the link, --> http://www.uspto.gov/ebc/indexebc.html
    2nd: You will see three columns: Patents, Trademarks, other. Click search(TESS) under the Trademarks column and Trademark EBusiness
    3rd: Click 'New User Form Search (basic)'
    4th: Fill in 'Blizzard,' for the 'Search Term.'
    Note: Be sure to assign 'Owner name and address' for the 'Field' parameter!!
    5th: Look for 'Diablo.' It should be the first one (There is one for Diablo I, II, and one for LOD, but LOD says LOD, LOL).
    5th(cont.):Click 'Diablo'
    6th: Enjoy!
