2003-02-11 [ArtsyCatDreamer]: I think since there is a daily poem contest there should also be a drawing contest for the artists, like the moderators choices on the main elfwood page.
2003-02-18 [Anathoth]: Hope no one minds, I made a suggestion.. Keep in mind I know nothing of programming, so I don't know if it's even possible.
2003-03-08 [the effervescent effulgence]: is anyone even considering these ideas? it would be nice to know that our opinions matter...
2003-03-10 [peura]: If you could read the instructions on this page, you would see that you should post all new suggestions in the Suggestions forum, if you want to be sure that someone sees them.
2003-03-10 [Hedda]: I also read this page, but I don't comment it that often.
2003-03-10 [peura]: I wrote some "how to post a suggestion" instructions, hope it helps...
2003-03-10 [Hedda]: You wrote it over me comments *grmbl* Well, nothing important was lost though.
2003-03-16 [the effervescent effulgence]: well, if you post all new suggestions in the suggestion forum, what's this page here for... ?_?
2003-03-16 [Hedda]: This is a place where you put your suggestions so that other people can edit them. If you have a half-finished one for example. It is also good to have your suggestion here because I often look at this page to see what I can do.
2003-04-27 [Amythest Cat]: maybe a line also for a current thought. Sometimes I want to make a mood obvious and a thought ovvious.
2003-04-29 [Calico Tiger]: Man, that vampire race write-up is entirely too long! Someone should shorten it to 2 or 3 lines like the rest. Me? Heck no. I ain't touching it. I didn't suggest it so don't wanna muck that one up.
2003-04-30 [alpha wolf]: could u like make games or something
2003-05-12 [ange7snow]: I think a Guest House is needed
2003-05-22 [Pippin]: please someone help me! is it possible for me to make a wiki text adventure thing? if it is can someone tell me how i start because i dont know how!? could you message me.
2003-08-07 [ravenna]: I added a different description for vampires......
2003-09-11 [Taeven]: :( on this computer editing the wiki doesnt work for some odd reason... but i have a suggestion! ::cries::
2003-09-14 [Hedda]: [Taeven]: I think the page is too big. Someone might fix that, or you might use another browser. The best place to suggest new things is in the Elftown, suggestions-fo
2003-10-16 [Calico Tiger]: I removed the Furry poll and other advertisement stuff from my Fellnari suggestion. This isn't the place to advertise things... *whaps everyone with fluffy pillows*
2003-10-16 [CookieDough]: will we be seeing additions to the fantacy race personalities anytime soon?
2003-12-22 [Elforia]: I'm not sure if this is the right place to make these suggestions but here goes.....1) maybe the buttons at the very top of the page could move with people click them.....not sure how...um....ma
2003-12-22 [MathiasIV]: The delete member button is just for comedic relief. Its actually really funny :)
2003-12-22 [Elforia]: oh I seeeeeeeeeeee. no it's just someone I know tried to delete herself and when she found she couldn't got really really annoyed. I found it funny myself it's just a little weird for people who mean it
2004-01-26 [Nita]: Umm... Isn't the "Roll Dice" thing implemented now?
2004-01-26 [MathiasIV]: Er, havent heard anything about it.
2004-01-26 [Nita]: Wiki-page data Latest author: MathiasIV Page name: suggestions Page version: 88 2004-01-26 16:14:02 # of watchers: 10 D20: 13 :P
2004-01-26 [MathiasIV]: Wiki Search engine Enable an Elftowner to be able to use key words to search for all Wiki's that have that word in them, so they can find unlisted Wiki's they might have stumbled on previously and cannot find.[TheRogue] / Comment from [peura]: What if the page owner doesn't want random people to find the wiki? / [MathiasIV] Perhaps an option could be selected by the owner to make the page unavailable by random searches like that. Much like the other button options that page owners have.
2004-01-26 [Nita]: Huh?
2004-01-26 [MathiasIV]: Thats what I edited :P
2004-01-26 [Nita]: D20 is the dice and 13 is the number ;)
2004-01-26 [MathiasIV]: Oh! thats the dice roller? I thought it would put it in the text if you typed like <roll:20> or something
2004-01-26 [Nita]: Yup, that's our dice... :)
2004-01-26 [MathiasIV]: Nice :) I never woulda known that. Hey I rolled a 13... Good thing I aint superstitious ^_^
2004-01-26 [spiritee]: ey..i dunt get the dice thing..
2004-01-26 [MathiasIV]: every time you edit a page it rolls 20 sided dice and displays the results in that little white box that talks about the previous editor and version
2004-01-27 [spiritee]: ohhh....
2004-02-01 [Shining light]: why?
2004-02-01 [MathiasIV]: If you are a traditional RPer then it takes the place of rolling the dice. Can be taken into consideration when trying to hit something or perform a skill or determining an outcome or or or or LOTS of stuff ^_^
2004-02-26 [creepydog]: If you don't mind making the font a little smaller?It makes the pages go on forever.
2004-02-27 [Nita]: You can change the font size in your personal data form :)
2004-03-02 [Prettygal]: Hey, elftown is cool but can you put a few pages of some groovy elfen folk
2004-03-03 [Calico Tiger]: Try checking out the wiki pages, Prettygal. I'm sure you'll find several elven type pages in there ^_^
2004-03-23 [Thorgin]: Hello. I just wondered what to do to have your Mood icons considered for a possible place in the Elftown Mood icons(The ones available to everyone).
2004-03-23 [Calico Tiger]: As long as they're your creation, send them to [Hedda] and let him know what they're for. Make sure to include what moods they're for as well. Kind've like the format they're in when you click on Mood:
2004-03-23 [Thorgin]: How? Upload the Mood icons to my Elftown account and put them in an ET message to him?
2004-03-23 [Calico Tiger]: Should work ^_^
2004-03-23 [Thorgin]: Thanks *hugs* You see... I am going to do or at least try to do a little set of mood icons. I hope Hedda thinks they're good enough.
2004-03-23 [Ocean Dreaming]: I feel fidgety about sending my nice eyes though. I like my eyes, but they're not drawn... ^^;
2004-03-23 [Elforia]: um...do all suggestions get looked at? cos I posted mine ages ago and no one seems to have noticed it.
2004-03-23 [Ocean Dreaming]: Which is it?
2004-03-23 [Elforia]: the 3rd one up from the bottom...its about tidying up msgs. I have tons but not the patience to search for people who've only sent me like 3 msgs
2004-03-23 [Nita]: You don't have to delete your messages. And you can use the nice little search form for searching :)
2004-03-23 [Elforia]: that's what i mean.....you can search for the name but only if u remember it, and often if u search for the keyword, msgs u don't want to delete come up. I've got really old msgs I'd like to delete which are only 3 msgs long conversations I've had with people but I can't find them easily
2004-03-23 [Elforia]: what I was thinking was, if there was a way to find the people who only send like 3 msgs then stop and be able to delete them, that way we can only keep the conversations we want to and not have the really short ones taking up space
2004-03-23 [Ocean Dreaming]: They're not deleted fully off the server, if I recall and deleted or no they take up space. A similar suggestion is actually already in the top suggestions row of obsolete/rejec
2004-03-23 [Elforia]: ok never mind.....was worth a try
2004-04-20 [pegasus1000]: I wonder how often this page is checked for new sugestions
2004-04-20 [Athene Noctua]: Much.
2004-04-20 [pegasus1000]: that is good.. I was starting to wonder..
2004-04-22 [druaegon]: I think this town should be based more like neo pets. like have games and Different places to go and a pet. and more art things i cant find many Dragon drawings
2004-04-23 [druaegon]: Well elfwood is down and neopets is too childish. I just think that there should be like and elf world or elf planet. and games or something
2004-04-23 [druaegon]: O and another thing. MONEY . and if this is a town it should run on more of a town basis.
2004-04-25 [Elforia]: ooof money is evil! If you think about something that is bad, chances are the bases of it is money. I think the world would be a MUCH better place without it...whatever happened to swapping something for something else?
2004-04-25 [SilverFire]: nah, money isn't evil, it's like the dude from the advert said- 'money can't be evil, it's not alive... if a poud was a chicken, would the chicken be evil?'- the love of money is the thing that could be classed as 'evil' ... so basically... greed is evil.
2004-04-25 [Elforia]: ok money isn't evil, but the use of it can be. Seriously,...t
2004-04-25 [pegasus1000]: I will agree with that statment.. (you can also look at the good that is done too)
2004-04-25 [Elforia]: that is true....it has done some good.
2004-04-25 [SilverFire]: the fact is, money would be useless and worthless if people didn't want it... sorry... i know the difference is subtle and i'm being pedantic... but you can't really blame inanimate objects such as money for suffreing... it's the fat cats who have the power to do moral good, but choose not to 'cos they want more money that are at fault
2004-04-25 [Calico Tiger]: Well, you know, I'm sure if someone wanted to create flash games or something for Elftown, they'd be more than welcome to do so ^_^
2004-04-25 [Elforia]: like I said...money isn't evil...the use of it is....um does that make sense...v tired
2004-04-26 [SilverFire]: it was the think of one thing that's bad in the world, and I guarantee u money will be the source of it. thing I was refering to :-P
2004-04-26 [Elforia]: ok...ack it's all too complicated. i think we should all live like hobbits and get drunk every night in none liver damaging ways
2004-04-30 [Lylliana]: I have a great game that would be fun I think for people to play. How do I go about getting my game started? If anybody can help me then please let me know.
2004-05-27 [no name needed]: hi im chenay a new user
2004-06-07 [pegasus1000]: I agree. That way the visators would not think that the person did something wrong.
2004-06-07 [Nita]: It would be great if the visitors learned to read... ;)
2004-06-08 [The Spirit Mage Crystalwind]: lol, yeah, and I'm not a new user but I should learn to read as well...since I now know that not all red messages are bad. and, as a side note, there IS a banner, although I've never seen it in a house before. (But I still would like to see what banners people would come up with for a contest like that ^_^)
2004-06-10 [The Spirit Mage Crystalwind]: maybe I could just start a contest...and see if they'll use the winner? *begins plotting and looks around for people in charge...*
2004-06-10 [Nita]: Well... You can try :)
2004-06-10 [The Spirit Mage Crystalwind]: lol, but would the banner actually be used or would it just be a pointless contest?
2004-06-10 [Nita]: How should I know? I haven't seen it yet ;)
2004-06-16 [The Spirit Mage Crystalwind]: there, all built. ^^
2004-06-16 [pegasus1000]: I know this is going to sound like anadvertaismen
2004-07-03 [Mischa]: I would like to be able to search wiki pages....
2004-07-04 [Ocean Dreaming]: Probably not going to happen. There are too many wiki-pages that are meant to be private to do that.
2004-07-17 [skiman]: I think that scrapping this entire site will save a lot of money.
2004-09-07 [another brick in the wall]: I think there should be a court system for when sombody breaks the rules
2004-09-07 [another brick in the wall]: but they're not realy giving anybody a fair fight, if you look at all the debates on the cmments or something you'll noticed that's it impossaped to change a guard's mind
2004-09-07 [True, plain and simple]: If you break the 'law', then you pay. It's a pretty simple process. Since nearly every case of image violations are a result of the image being found elsewhere, we don't need to waste resources on who has the better story. It's black and white, enough said.
2004-09-07 [another brick in the wall]: and how is this pic against the law: http://elftown
2004-09-14 [Amythest Cat]: [another brick in the wall] while there is not rule against adding stuff to your own picture, I'm pretty sure it was done because it was an artist adding the costume of a copyrighted character, Vash the Stampeede
2004-09-14 [SilverFire]: ...but there's no rule against fan art... so *IF* he drew the coat himself, then that could not have been the problem...
2004-09-14 [True, plain and simple]: But it is pretty clear he didn't, since not only can I find an image exactly like the one he cropped the coat from, he also refuses to show proof he drew it. Problem solved. :)
2004-09-14 [another brick in the wall]: but how do I prove I drew it, it's identical because I did paste an actual trigun pic, but I colored over it
2004-09-14 [Ocean Dreaming]: It's a manipulation of an image that isn't yours. The Uploading Art Rules say quite clearly that that is not allowed. "E) Copyrighted art that is not by you, and manipulations of such."
2004-09-14 [Ocean Dreaming]: Colouring = manipulation. The coat in your image is therefore not allowed and was removed. I'm sorry, but you can't have the photo up if it has that copyrighted piece of material.
2004-09-14 [another brick in the wall]: fine, I'll just have to go with plan C
2004-10-22 [*ILKD*]: music
2004-11-12 [Aidan Ryuko]: how about a name search, I don't mean members, i mean words, for example if you are an ice cream lover and you want to know what's out there, members written ice cream on their pages, wikis with ice cream, kind of the same thing as on elfwood.. look for a certain item and you get tons, some you can use, some you can't.. I for one would be glad to find more people who like onegai teacher wich would it much easier if i had the posibility
2004-11-12 [Aidan Ryuko]: oh and a little suggestion, put the advanced help link on the bottom of the help page?
2004-11-12 [Nita]: Well, you could search for "ice cream" in their description... :)
2004-11-12 [Aidan Ryuko]: o.O I didn't even see that!! *hits himself* yay now I can look for ice cream :D thankies^^ even though its not a full search im fully satisfied:)
2004-11-13 [another brick in the wall]: um, I was thinking that the shirts that your going to be selling should be white and maybe come with like a sharpie or just a somthing so that the Elftowners that buy the shirt could write the usernames on the back or something
2004-11-14 [Aidan Ryuko]: hehe:D a guy with hotboy984521 on the back^^
2004-11-14 [another brick in the wall]: I'm not joking, I want to remember absolutly all 647 people I talked to on this wonderful place and I can't stay forever, infact I have to leave very soon beause the stupid people jacked the prices for the internet and my mom can't aford it so she's taking it away, and I don't care if the names are all cus words, I want to rember them and show te world that I once knew them all. how in the world am I going to fit 647 names on a shirt? God find a way to fit them all
2004-11-14 [Aidan Ryuko]: mmhmm it could be pretty cool:) allthough you might risk getting arrested in some countries hehe:) it might help to just print out the names and put them in your room^^
2004-11-14 [another brick in the wall]: but that's not the same as having them on a shirt. like I said, I want to show the world that I'm proud to have known these people. and if I have to leave Elftown before you start selling the shirts, would you guys sew me if I iornpressed my own Elftown shirt?
2004-11-14 [Aidan Ryuko]: I wish you good luck getting all the names up:) pretty neat to see a shirt with all those names^^ (and frustrating if you come 3 places short)
2004-11-16 [Aidan Ryuko]: I don't know if you have it yet but it would be rather handy if you could click the name to see the messages you send to that person, for instance if you send a note to a translator you dont know and you want to find it back after 3 days it would be much easier if you could just click or type his name to see all messages you send him/her.. (can't find the message back I send someone *blushes*)
2004-11-19 [Nita]: You can search for messages on your pages for received and sent messages :)
2004-11-19 [Aidan Ryuko]: thanks:) this site is so handy i didn't even figure out half of it's uses!!
2005-01-15 [Flinfor]: Something like the way the bioware forums work would be a lot easier to use
2005-01-15 [Nita]: Not really... What can be easier to use than single button navigation we have here? :)
2005-03-23 [Pedito]: Would it be possible at all if we start a instant messanger system going on elftown? Gets tiring after reading message by message
2005-03-24 [Nita]: I don't think we have that much spare server-time. Why don't you use one of the existing instant messaging systems intsead? :)
2005-03-24 [Pedito]: because I'm usaully only avaible to get online at school. Some convos would go faster this way. Plus there are methods of getting around that. I could ask my cousin because he designs forum like these and he has instant message capabilities like these. I't basically a chat line with forums that you can look at. and it tells you who your talking to.
2005-05-06 [The Spirit Mage Crystalwind]: a while ago I suggested having a banner to put up at houses containing new art instead of the standard red-text message by the guards. The results are now in at the Nude Banner Contest, so I was just wondering if any (or all) of these banners could be used.
2005-12-02 [NiceGuy213]: How about we have a Jester positon? If someone needs a laugh, they could go to one of these people, and they could try to get one of those well needed laughs.
2005-12-31 [Draugur dauðans]: Perhapse Elftown should also selebrate the Pagan Selebrations? you have enough Wiccan's/Pagan
2006-01-03 [iippo]: We are actually in the thinking of letting people feature their festive dates in the calendar. And I'm very glad of this comment because you're showing that people do want it.
2006-04-08 [1a2b3c]: It would be nice if under each "online friend" there was a message field to send quick messages.
2006-04-09 [NiceGuy213]: Yeah, like a messenger service.
2006-04-09 [NiceGuy213]: that way, any of your buddies online can message you whenever your on, not just on here.
2006-04-09 [iippo]: Eh, I understood what [1a2b3c] meant (can send a message to an online-friend without having to go through their house to the message-box), but not [NiceGuy213]... You want to send ET-messages without actually being logged on? O_o
2006-04-09 [1a2b3c]: yup, thats what i meant, sending a message wihtout going through their house
2006-04-09 [NiceGuy213]: Like AIM or MSN, any of your friends here, you have in the messenger too.
2006-04-09 [iippo]: You have different suggestions. Either way, the best place to suggest is actually the forum <forum:Elftown, Suggestions>, because the mayor and the other tech-people are more active there... From my incredibly limited knowledge of the interet, I'd say connecting ET-onlineness with MSN-onlineness is a bit impossible. I mean... MSN doesn't even show online when you're actually logged in to a passport site like Hotmail... You need the downloaded program. :/ But, suggest in the forum.
2006-04-22 [another brick in the wall]: we should have Elftown Grocery stores. Do you know how Friggin cool it would be, to go some place and have it say like "$40 per pound of cabbage", and then you type in a space, how much cabbage you want, and then click a "buy" button, frig YES! and it wont matter if you have the money or not, you just buy stuff.
2006-04-22 [iippo]: But you wouldn't get stuff either. o.O So you'd be paying for imaginary grocery with imaginary money... Kind of like a roleplay. See if Elftown Open Marketplace is anything like what you imagined...
I think that there should be a Cutest Couple Award
Because there is one for Elfpack
2006-10-17 [Sylvia Rote]: I was just wondering if maybe we should do a little more censoring on the ~coughs~ expose, of some of the underage members on the photos in their house? I see so many houses that have young girls in lewd sexual positions or barely in anything, and it just puts out a poor image for the rest of the town. It wouldn't be so bad if they had it in a wiki, or if they had at least artistic photographs.
2006-10-17 [iippo]: From the uploading art rules:
G-3. Pornographic images and images depicting extreme violence are not allowed in your house. Almost nude and nude images of minors and pictures of self mutilation are not allowed anywhere on Elftown.
Note: "Nudity" is defined as displayed genitals or a female breast where you can see the nipple. Extremely sexually suggestive looking photos are also considered "nude" even if there is no actual nudity shown in the image. So no showing of breasts before you're 18 in the photo!
Note 2: The "nudity of minor"-rule is demanded by (a pretty badly defined Swedish) law, and it doesn't matter if Elftown thinks the image is "harmless" or "artistic".
So when you see such imagery, report the member to the guards.
2006-10-17 [Sylvia Rote]: all righty!! I just neversaw it in any of the catagories for the reporting section. now i know, and thank you.
2008-11-23 [ClaytonRayG]: On a side note... Has there ever been thought of a preview ability when changing personal house data to where those that are not HTML inclined can see what they are doing?
2008-11-23 [SilverFire]: There is one. Above the box where you edit your presentation, there's a button that says 'preview'.
2008-11-23 [ClaytonRayG]: Ty for pointing that out...observat
2009-03-27 [ClaytonRayG]: Another idea (If I haven't noticed it yet sorry ><) Is maybe an erase all read/answered messages? I have a lot backed up and OCD is a pain I have been trying to clean it up for a while.
2009-03-27 [SilverFire]: The ideas been suggested before, and Hedda's never been keen on it - why do you need to delete the messages anyway? it's not as if you run out of inbox space or something.
2009-03-27 [ClaytonRayG]: Eh just OCD I try to keep stuff as clean as possible. And is there a way to flag a message as "urgent" before sending? (If I get annoying let me know)
2009-07-30 [another brick in the wall]: you guys really need a mad squinty-eyed emote. yesterday I had the need of one like 5 times.
2010-01-04 [another brick in the wall]: nother suggestion. I'm sure people suggest it a lot, but it would be great if you had a visitor's list on wikis just like you do on houses.
2010-01-07 [Imperator]: A "clear all" button for all the wiki comments/chang
2010-02-01 [Hedda]: [another brick in the wall]: No, it's private information about what wiki-pages you visit.
[Imperator]: No, because that might cause more problem than it solves. But it should become easier to read through them.
2010-02-01 [Janouk]: But with the add-me button you could keep it private if you want to.
2010-02-01 [Hedda]: Good point. The problem is that it makes Elftown even more complicated, which is a problem... I'll think about it when I don't have a lot of good improvements to do
2010-02-01 [Janouk]: (I wasn't suggesting you should do it by the way ;) I was merely remarking that I didn't agree with your argument)
2010-02-02 [SilverFire]: It also adds clutter to the wikis, which are already scarily complicated for those who aren't very familiar with them. Also gives opportunity for the same kind of "harassment" we get in houses (people added themselves to the list just to annoy people) to happen in wikis as well.
2010-02-02 [Imperator]: I'm not sure how my suggestion would cause any problems. If I don't want to look at whatever wiki invites, diaries, etc are all over my browser, why should I have to click on every single one to get rid of them?
2010-03-27 [Kaimee]: I really would love a clear all on my wiki invitations... *grumbles*
2010-04-01 [another brick in the wall]: Don't know if there's a better place to say it, But I just want to say I'm fine with the new layout, apart from the fact that the white new message indicator is far less noticable than the original blue. *a lot*
2011-05-06 [Figment]: When you schedule a message to be sent to yourself, it says "You will be sent that message on (date you chose) around 4:30 o'clock in the morning."
X:30 o'clock sounds wrong. Usually unless it is on the hour exactly the "o'clock" bit is dropped.
2011-06-13 [Thrice]: Can we get one of those nifty check-all buttons for our messages? :)
