    1. COMMENTS
    I think you should be able to easily search all your previous comments on your "Profile" tab and see, on that page, how many likes and dislikes that comment got without clicking on it to open it in a new tab and see it in the forum. It's so tedious.

    2. SETTINGS
    You should be able to adjust your notifications so you can see only replies or something, edit your page, etc.

    3. DISCUSSION FOLLOWING FEATURE
    On the subject of notifications when you unfollow discussions, previous notifications from that discussion should be deleted unless they are a reply to your comment.

    4. AVATAR
    Gravatar. Get rid of it. That's all I have to say. Why can't we simply upload a photo?

    5. REPLYING
    When replying to someone, it should say WHO you are replying to, like, "Bobby Joe, in reply to Dave Smith."

    6. EMAIL NOTIFCATIONS
    You should receive an email each time someone replies to your comments, up votes, down votes it, comments on your discussion, up votes or down votes that, etc.

    That is all. Hoepfully someone sees this! This site in great as it is, but it really needs some improvements.
    ** excuse me if I made any mistakes and if some of these features actually do exist. I'm new here. Haha!
  • Oh my god I can't believe someone downvoted this. HAVE AN UPVOTE!
    MY GOD THAT IS IRONIC HAHA.

    NOOO!!! Don't mention anything about the dislikes for if you do it will alert the trolls and they will dislike all the comments here for no reason.

  • I agree on 1-4, don't care about 5 and would only agree on 6 if it would be possible to disable that feature. I seriously don't need more spam.

    Thread: Earning badges idea [Moderators please read this]


    i just wanna ask if you guys could add badges .. it would be cool like login badges... and stuff like that or like if you get 500 likes on your profile you get a badge and stuff or staff badges and stuff like that .. so can you guys add them ?

    Please

  • Moderators don't have the ability to do that I'm pretty sure.

  • Mods are just volunteers. It's the web team that actually adds new features.

    I think way back when this version of the site was in the works (before I was a mod), I heard talks of something like this, but it ultimately feel through I think.

  • Yeah. Almost every forum I've been there have been ranks where people had certain amount of likes and a rank next to them.

  • I'm a moderator I wish.

  • can you ask them if they could add it please

  • Unfortunately, at the time likes aren't given for stuff like helping others or posting interesting theories, they're mainly given for posting huge gifs and for release date bitching. So, judging from my certainly limited view, if Telltale even gave out badges to encourage this kind of behavior, that would be a really, really bad idea.

  • I just dont know whats going on lol.

    why?

  • It would be nice to have the option to click on my "Created Discussions" and view them all on a page. Sometimes I would like to go back on some of them for future reference. Right now ,the only way of checking your discussions are scrolling down through tons of comments which can take fucking forever.

  • Have a Game of Thrones Thread Section in between the Tales From The Borderlands and Tell Tale Talk Section.

    Divide threads in each section up to 5 different groups:

    Group 1: New Threads, recent threads created.

    Group 2: Hot Topics, the most viewed threads.

    Group 3: Archives, closed threads.

    Group 4: Fan-Fiction/Fan-Art Threads, fan-fictions and fan-art threads.

    Group 5: Other, every other thread.

  • Thread: Where do we direct constructive critisism for the forum and who are the powers above the mods?


    Hey guys

    I've thought of a couple of suggestions for the forums I think would be useful, and I was wondering where I should direct them? Furthermore, should one wish to complain about the actions of any moderator, who is actually in place to receive those calls of criticism?

    In most companies you complain to a supervisor etc. but I can't think what that would be in this case. If we just email telltale they'll just ignore it most likely, I bet they get hundreds of fan emails a day, they probs don't have time to read them.

    I'm not saying I want to do that, god knows the mods here are easily the best posters, but it's just useful information to know and should really be made available.

  • I'm not sure I would call them "above Mods" but Telltale Staff would be the next thing or just other Mods...

  • But how on earth would I actually get in dialogical contact with them?

  • There is a Site Support forum under the Support tab. I would look there.

  • Try PMing another mod or puzzlebox or just any other Telltale Staff

    Complaining isn't constructive criticism

    You know what i meant :P

    I don't want to complain about any specifically, more generally.

    I suspect Telltale already knows they don't have enough mods, but I want to let them know that its a problem.

    Also puzzlebox is female :)

    It's not an official thread in any capacity, but this user created thread is where people go to suggest improvements.

  • Trust me, this guy would be a great mod

    don't have enough mods lemme guess, you think you'd be a great mod, right?

  • Also, if you happen to have any feedback, you can contact me or one of the other Moderators via PM and we can forward it to the relevant people behind the scenes if it is something worth looking into. However, as most of you already know, Moderators here are just community volunteers so we don't have a terribly large amount of string pulling we can do in terms of how the website works. Telltale's web team is in charge of adding new features and updates here - we just stick around to enforce the rules and keep order.

    Nah, I wouldn't be. I'm not on the forum enough currently and I get too involved with debates. I think I could put that aside but there are far better candidates than I.

    Thanks for being uber cynical about my post for no reason though.

    Just because he has different opinions with some people, that doesn't mean he dislikes them.
