Hi everyone!  This is the thread to post about any ideas or suggestions you  have for the Galaxy Cauldron Forums. The staff will do our best to look over the ideas and consider each one fairly.  However, please do not be offended if we feel that an idea will not work well on the forums.

We appreciate all input from the members. So post away!

~Small Lady

This is just something I've noticed across all types of forums and I don't understand why it happens. Plenty of members sign up for an account and get the welcoming private message by Sailor Jupiter but they never even post in the introductions forum. If you sign up for an account and get the welcoming message but don't post, then why did you register in the first place? 

Has there ever been an idea to get people more interested in posting upon registration. Clearly they're interested in some way, otherwise they wouldn't have made an account in the first place.

Edit: Hope it's okay to bring this up.

This is a long time question that's been brought up amongst the staff (what you wrote is exactly my thoughts on the matter), but I think its just the way of things. I'm not sure what else we can do if they don't make that first post. We can send out mass emails but I have a feeling the people that register for sites and then never post, hardly check their emails.

its crazy to think in this day where everyone is connected to the internet almost 24 hours a day, but yeah.

I appreciate you being concerned, but unfortunately I don't think there's anything we can do about it. We've set up quite a few systems and helpful bits to help new members not feel intimidated about the forums (ie Mentor program and the Newbie Pack). So if we can't grab them at that, then i'm not sure what else. xD

I had a thought come to mind. What about an official GC Skype group? I notice that the cbox chat doesn't get used by that many members so a Skype group could be used by the members to kick back, discuss GC things or whatever else is on their mind. It also allows them to probably be able to chat with at least one person when they're online without having to guess when their contacts will be online.

A skype group sounds like a fantastic idea! The only person who I talk to on skype is my sister. The rest of my friends either don't trust it cause their in the IT field or their computers are so old that they can't run it properly. ^^;

I know we have a built in calendar on the forums and I was wondering if whoever puts up contests could put the deadlines on the calendar.  I have a calendar printed out with the deadlines on it so I don't forget, but it would be nice to have them right there on the site.  There are so many contests, and I want to participate in as many as I can, but when life takes me away from the computer I forget what I was doing.  LOL!

Oh this is a very good idea! We should use the calendar on Facebook as well. I'll definitely look into implementing this.

Yes, I should start remembering to do that for the contests I run. I'm just a forgetful Frannie and yeah. u.u Facebook would be great. itd also be cute to have downloadable graphic calendars. I made some blank ones one year, maybe we could make some and post them up every month with the contests and events going on. :O

It'd actually be easier to make images for me personally. I think for contests for sure we should put them on there. We should also attempt to finalize the dates for large events for next year. I think we tried this before but I feel it should be easier to do now.

PostSubject: Re: Official GC Ideas and Suggestions Thread   Sat 18 Jun - 5:54

Hi! These were some ideas I originally had for an old guild of mine, and planning to include in my own forum website. I was briefly discussing this earlier with a couple of people, who encouraged me to post my ideas here to see if they could possibly be considered for GC.

Just to be absolutely clear, I am in no way attempting to discuss ideas for my own forum (only expressing ideas I already had that could be transferable to here), and I am not attempting to recruit, design, assign duties, etc. for my own forum. These are just here as ideas to take or leave as you like. Smile

Scavenger Hunt:

Spoiler:
 

Let me give you an example to paint a picture.

Spoiler:
 

I hope this is easy to understand; I really have only had some basic concept of this floating in my head for the past two years and never got the chance to finalize and implement it. To recap, the idea is to send the newbie to each forum and to either post in an established thread or to start her own thread. This would get her acquainted with the mechanics of the guild without overwhelming her (hopefully), and she would win a small gold grant or item for each completed task, plus a bigger prize at the end for completion. Additionally, the new member would have been given a means to "break the ice", as it is sometimes awkward trying to think of things to do or say when you're new, and especially if you're the shy type.

Details I didn't get to discuss with my crew were things like:
Spoiler:
 

Looking around Galaxy Cauldron, I am impressed with the system which has been set up, and I wish I had thought of some of the options I see here. Things like gaining Lotus status-- giving members a longer-term goal to strive for-- and the stamps and bumpers are genius.

The "other idea"

Spoiler:
 

I dunno, looking over my second idea here, it looks like it's basically the same system that's in place here on GC, but a little weaker/ more vague. Well, it was a thought, and if I can work it out in my own unique way, I think I'd like to use it on my own forum, as well as the scavenger hunt. In the meantime, if GC would like to use either of these ideas in some way, shape, or form, knock yourselves out, as long as you don't restrict me from using them in my own forum. (Or at least the scavenger hunt; I can understand if my second system is too close to GC's for comfort.)

I'm pleased to say we do indeed have an in depth scavenger hunt! We just introduced this as a Special Lotus Only Event! ^^

The object idea is interesting, the Admin team will look over it :3

The scavenger hunt int he Lotus area is real life based though, where you find pictures on the list and post them. This seems more as a way to get members into the various sections and get to know about them while it is also a game.

I got a Discord suggestion! I was thinking, if enough members were interested, we had a channel just for like Music recommendations? Like basically a place to spam music and suggest stuff we're listening to? We could totally do it in the official chat but i thought it'd be cool to have a place to do it specifically.

Ooh~ I don't have super authority over that, but if we did move forward with the suggestion would you want auto-play or choose to start?

I think a music player would be cool, but I would have to say it needs to be not on auto play. I think as an OPTION it's a great idea, but I don't want to startle people and it's a bit of a pain to pause immediately every time I visit the site.

XD That's a good point ♥

I also think we'd have to find one other than the one I've implemented, else attempt to fix it a bit, as when you click on a post it doesn't automatically take you to that post anymore and I'm pretty sure it's the player's fault XD Maybe putting it to align on bottom would help with that? so if it's auto-taking you to the position of the playlist when you click on a link at least it'd take you to the newest post? I'd want to find one that doesn't restart the list when you leave the page though. 

Hrm. XD A CODE SEEKING ADVENTURE
