Hi humans,
...
Do you have any opinions about anything related to Hard Drop not covered by the previous questions?
Edit: If you have any opinions regarding moderation or the administration, feel free to post them here under this question, because it is very relevant to the changes on which we're working. I understand that people have historically gotten some sort of suspension or ban if they talk about moderation in general discussion. However, as long as your response is honest, reasonable, and justified, and does not include any personal attacks, I will ensure you receive no punishment for sharing your opinions (this applies to responses in this thread only).
...
Thanks.

1 ) The only thing I can think of is a little bigger "Player of the Month" tab. Other than that, it's all fine.

2 ) Maybe, depends on the topic itself.

3 ) Probably not, but I don't really participate in events at all, so I don't think it really apllies to me.

4 ) Same thing as number 3, don't realle donate. Doesn't really applies.

5 ) Video replays of records in the "Records" section. That would be cool.

6 ) I use it from time to time. Never really contributed because didn't think there was much I knew to contribute. Would feel like: "Son, I am disappoint." :/

7 ) I user quite often. I would feel bad also but the profile thing does sound much cooler. Smile.png

8 ) Nope, I think everything was pretty much covered.

***What are your opinions about the home page? Does anything need to be added or removed? Does anything need more or less emphasis in terms of size or placement?

World, Home, Forums, Wiki etc should be big buttons in the middle of home page so visitors can access inmediately. A "who are we" box in the home page explaining what is harddrop, how can you participate and where can you play tetris should be added.


***Would you be more motivated to participate in tournaments and events hosted by Hard Drop if participants received special forum badges under their avatar to....

Yes, that would be a good motivator.

***What are some features that you would like Hard Drop to implement?

A ranking system: 50 fastest players, higher apm players on multiplayer, best downstackers etc. A medal indicating their rank should be placed under their profile

***How often do you use the wiki? Do you have any motivation to contribute to the wiki? How would you feel if the wiki was removed?

The wiki is fine and I used it a lot when I was getting involved into tetris, but it should be simplified, i.e: basic, advanced and expert sections. Different lists for terms and tactics or something. Noob friendly.

It's no longer opt-in since I was able to remove it from active topics

I'll bite...

1. What are your opinions about the home page? Does anything need to be added or removed? Does anything need more or less emphasis in terms of size or placement?
Shoutbox still seems a little thin, but I understand why the size was reduced. However, on the mobile site, the text doesn't fit (screenshot, iOS 6). I also don't think PotM needs to be above it on the mobile view.
2. If off-topic boards (such as “League of Legends,” “Starcraft II,” “Guild Wars,” etc.) were created, would you be interested and/or willing to participate?
No. We are a Tetris specific forum, and there are specific forums that cater to their needs. As previously said, we can't even keep up single threads for them. For example, I created a general sports thread instead of individual threads for each league, because they would not be kept up and I could go to other places for more in-depth sports discussion.
3. Would you be more motivated to participate in tournaments and events hosted by Hard Drop if participants received special forum badges under their avatar to appear in all their posts (i.e. “Tetris Tournament Online II: Participant,” “Tetris Tournament Online II: Quarterfinalist,” “Tetris Tournament Online II: World Champion,” etc.)?
Yes, but the chances of me winning one are slim to none, and slim just walked out the door. Little trophies like previously done for HDOs would be good, but nothing larger.
4. Would you be more motivated to donate to Hard Drop if donators received special forum badges under their avatar (i.e. “Supporter”)?
Hard Drop Gold™? No.
5. What are some features that you would like Hard Drop to implement?
Eventually, have an embedded NullpoMino client, but that won't happen because of potential problems with The Trademark Company.
6. How often do you use the wiki? Do you have any motivation to contribute to the wiki? How would you feel if the wiki was removed?
I used the wiki a lot as a beginner, and still reference it rarely. Removing it would be a horrible option, but I'm most in favor of the combined wiki.
7. How often do you use the “Records” feature? How would you feel if the feature was removed, and was replaced by profile fields where you could fill in your stats (for 40 lines sprint, 40 lines dig race, etc.)?
I used to use it, but profile fields that feed into a larger, easier to navigate records list would be better.
8.Do you have any opinions about anything related to Hard Drop not covered by the previous questions?
XXXX members and stacking is a different size on different pages, text in the home page tabs looks bad, logo has always been bad, the line under "my forum topics" is a different blue than the rest of the lines in the profile, and the World page still takes a god-awful time to load.

This is the thorn in Aarons side. I'm pretty sure he's been complaining about this since I joined harddrop...

    This sounds great! I think it'd definitely liven up the site and stir more conversations. I just hope "K-pop" qualifies as a sub-forum Sticking Out Tongue.png



  • What are some features that you would like Hard Drop to implement?

    I've always wanted a comment feedback system to be implemented, whether it be in the form of thumbs up or +1. I think it's inconvenient that the only way to agree or appreciate someone's comment is to reply, and that a simple thumbs up would make things alot more easier. Imagine Facebook without the Like system, bizarre!

    I also wish we could choose whether or not to have our uploaded pictures be added to the public gallery, for privacy issues and whatnot. Furthermore, it'd be nice if the gallery had categories of it's own, so we could easily browse through and see pictures that would interest us. Also it'd be nice if this gallery was more easily accessible, such as from the home screen with its own tab at the top. The same goes for blogs as well, I didn't even know they existed until recently haha

Its limited but you can make pictures private and categorise them.

I have to agree. It's important to design HD clearer for new arrivals. You can't expect everybody to read through all topics. If you don't want to do what Lucho suggested, then create at least a FAQ under strategy/help and make it sticky (or give some useful informations in the private message every new member receive).

The new software is laid out in sections with granular access. This means a few things, one of which is that I can chunk things out to people who want to be involved. Therefore:

1) What sections do you want to see on the home page? I'm defaulting to the same ones as currently. I may have to find or write code to replicate some of them.

2) If you're interested in being in charge of a content section (news, videos, blogs, etc.), please contact me (PM is easiest). This is not intended to be 'work'; everybody here values different parts of the site, so if you'd like to contribute to keeping the stuff you're involved with active and fresh, I'd be glad for the help Smile.png

3) I'm also considering volunteers for subsection management, for example intros, tetris talk, general, BWH, etc. If you're interested in adopting a subforum, let me know too.

would that just be like, mini modding for the subforum?
