I will be getting together with the web developer in the near future, and we will be working on a message board forum for the website. I have asked questions in the past about what you as readers/commenters want to see on the new website.
Today I want to be more specific, if possible. The Wolverine (and other Rivals message boards) just rolled out a new forum format; some people are pleased, and others are disgruntled. The most experience I have with a message board is at MGoBlog, which functions well but has a few glitches.
- What message board formats/features do you like best? You can leave links to other forums in the comments so I can check them out.
- Are usernames sufficient? Or are avatars necessary?
- What are your thoughts on upvotes/downvotes? So far it seems I have had more people railing against voting on comments than people in support of it. I am indifferent as of now.
- Other thoughts/suggestions?
As always, thanks for reading and thanks for your suggestions!
