Hi everyone. I'm Joel from the Frozenbyte team, and I would like to know what you guys think about this message board. I think it's pretty neat. Any suggestions? Should we allow avatars, for example?

Hi Joel!

At the moment this message board is pretty small but it will eventually grow when there's more information available and more people get aware that there's a new game in the making.
As for the avatars, I personally wouldn't mind having some. Pictures from the game and its characters would make good avatars.
Just keep adding features as needed. Putting it all in at once makes the forum look empty and no one would know where to post.

This is propably unnecessary feature currently when the boards are small but you could do it so that when a developer posts to a topic it will have a different icon than the normal New Post icon. It would help to see where the devs have posted but as I said, it's not needed now when the board is small but you should think about it when the boards grow

Hi,
The forum fits in perfectly with the rest of the site :)

Very nice :D

I think you should allow avatars, yes.

They make people more identifiable, at least to me.

Perhaps just the devs/admins should have avatars, make them stand out easier?

The wait will be a little longer... We just added two new music tracks, though. I hope to be able to focus on the website a lot more in the coming weeks.

I can safely say you haven't even heard the best ones yet! 8)

Also, avatars are now in use! Only remote avatars and gallery avatars supported at the moment, though. I will add more to the gallery next week.

Do you recognize mine? :P

Yeah I definitely do. I guess we'll "have to" do some kind of a fan art section too... I hope I find some time next week for all the cool website stuff.

Is there a place where i can check how many people besides me are online?

Sometimes waiting for replies is a pain,
and it's a real shame if you suffer it in vain.

- We need some pre-made sg avatars, for those people that don't own webspace.
- We need a fansite kit (logos/banners etc), so pople can make their sg websites for mods etc.
- Somehow transparency pics don't work as avatar? :/

You can host avatars and other images for free at:

Not to say that ready-made theme-avatars wouldn't be nice, just pointing that out...
It's helpful, so i wouldn't count this as advertising.

Yeah that's ok.

Nope. We deliberately disabled that feature and won't be bringing it back.

True. I added the first two to my "longterm" todo list. Transparent pictures should work to my knowledge, if you make a proper .gif (or .png but I guess .gif is easier).

I think these sites are good but only thing what I would like to adjust is the right handside sliding bar. It is little too dark and on my own computer I can't see it on normal lightning adjustments.

Sure you can ask, but I don't know what to tell you. We made that decision like a year ago, and right now I don't remember what was the reasoning. In any case, it will not come back because I have n+1 more important things to do.

ShadowStealer, you're right, it's a bit too dark. I may look into it one day, but it would probably require some tweaking (because it's the same color as the box border color), so it's not going to happen soon. Thanks anyway. :wink:

First of all I must say this is a realy nice game!

I did a new picture to the top of the message board, the current one looks kinda messed up i think, it didn't turn out as good as i wanted it but use it if you like..
