Upcoming Releases Calendar

Posted by pokemonzrpg (Admins) at Sep 1 2016, 09:06 AM. 7 comments

Hey guys, I've just been experimenting with some of our unused or potential entirely new forum features, and the calendar came to mind. The calendar feature has always been there, but it was never utilized for anything. So randomly the idea came to me that perhaps the calendar could highlight the release dates of some upcoming titles throughout the year.

I went ahead and added in some of the bigger games for the rest of the year as well as some games that interest me specifically. Since we've never really used the feature I'm not entirely sure, but I am assuming that you can all add to the calendar regardless of being a moderator and what-not. If that is the case, please feel free to add any games I missed that interest YOU specifically, that way the included releases dates can be as comprehensive and catered to the community as possible (of course given that it does not allow you to edit the calendar for whatever reason, you can just post the games you want included on this topic and I will add them in for you). I could have just added every release for the rest of the year, but at that point it would be pretty cluttered and also not personalized at all. I figure it could be useful if you want to hop on just to see what games are on the horizon for any given day, and it doesn't require too much activity to still be useful.

PGRF is now on Twitter!

Posted by pokemonzrpg (Admins) at Mar 29 2016, 05:50 PM. 2 comments

Hey guys, not sure exactly how often it will be used just yet, but I wanted to let everyone know that there is now a Twitter account for PGRF! I imagine it will be used similarly to the Facebook group in terms of promoting new topics, changes to the forum, and what not. But we'll see where it goes!

Unfortunately @PGRF was too short to use, so

go follow @PGRForum!

New Domain pgrforum.com

Posted by PeteDorr (Admins) at Mar 27 2016, 05:49 PM. 35 comments

So I was writing this big long topic and literally right as I am about to finish I forgot my iPad was almost dead and it shut down at the last second, losing everything I wrote. So I will try and make this more concise.

Here is a new domain that is long overdue. Honestly I was so devestated about my idiocy in losing the last one, I basically lost any drive I had left to keep up with the forums. Thousands and thousands of google links pointing to the forum were dead, any link I had made in my youtube videos were now dead, it was so frustrating.

I also started to learn that my attention span for forums in starting to declime. I had like a 2 day period where I was all excited to run a forum I made to build a community around this kung fu panda hearthstone clone game but quickly lost my enthusiasm to continue on with it.

And as I'm sure some of you are aware I am struggling as it is to create content for youtube, so all of my ideas about breathing life into the forum again were set aside until I am back on a REAL regular schedule for posting videos again so I can slip one in about the forum without it seeming too obtrusive. For now I will start posting this new domain link in all of my new videos, as a start.

Thanks to all of you who have stuck around despite my abscence to keep the forum alive. Especially to Ben and Zach, who have done an amazing job it seems of running this place. I haven't given up completely on the forum yet, me registering this URL should tell you that I'm making steps to eventually bringing it back to life like it used to be.

Once I am comfortably making Youtube videos again I will start to really start advertising the forum again. I'm thinking of making a bumper image for the start or end of some videos once I decide to officially relaunch and push traffic here again so it's like a short ad and not me rambling on forever in videos about it.

Anyway, sorry for the domain delay, thanks for your patience.

"Currently Playing" Feature

Posted by pokemonzrpg (Admins) at Mar 21 2016, 10:44 PM. 5 comments

Ok guys, I'm going through the forum, trying to think of some minor improvements and features we can add here and there. One that I just added is the little "Currently Playing" profile field. You can actually see this right below my name and everything, where it says "Currently Playing Fantasy Life" This is a little feature I thought would be a nice touch to make it a little more personable. You can change this as often as you want just by editing the option in your profile (it will also give the option to all new members upon registration). It will display under your name on each of your posts, that way anyone can see what you've been up to whenever they're scrolling down a thread. Of course, it's up to you to decide how often you want to update it or not, but I know I'll at least be trying to keep mine as relevant as possible.

At the moment, you can only highlight one game you're playing at a time because any more than that could have the potential to make it a little too cluttered, but if you guys have any more ideas for features like this let me know (though of course I have to work within the confines of what Zetaboards allows me to do :P).

The Future

Posted by pokemonzrpg (Admins) at Mar 5 2016, 03:31 AM. 63 comments

Hey guys, sorry for being so inactive lately. Now that it has been so long, and it's pretty clear Pete has no intention of supporting this community anymore, I was wondering if we could all come together with some suggestions or thoughts on the future of the community here. Should we keep going here with little to no activity, try to get more activity, re-locate to a new forum, re-locate to the PGRF Facebook group for discussion, or any other suggestions? It would be best if we could get input from as many of the remaining community members as possible before going forward with a decision.

Suggestions [MEGA-THREAD]

Posted by pokemonzrpg (Admins) at Nov 24 2015, 12:04 PM. 4 comments

Any and all legitimate suggestions, comments, and concerns you have regarding the forum may be posted in this thread (whether it be now or 10 years from now). Rest assured that the admin and moderator team will see and address them as soon as possible thereafter. Don't be afraid to come back here and post whenever something pops into your head that you think would be worth considering. Thanks.

CHAT IS IN FULL EFFECT

Posted by pokemonzrpg (Admins) at Nov 13 2015, 07:34 PM. 9 comments

Alright, a new chatbox is in full effect. You can find it by either clicking "Chat" in the menu bar at the top of the forum or by using the special re-direct forum I put under the "Community" section. I think it works nicely. Feel free to use the shoutbox to say when you are currently in the chat. That way, members can scroll down and see if anyone has posted about being in the chat recently. And make sure to make an account on the chat, so you'll be a registered user. Enjoy!

Working on a Chat

Posted by pokemonzrpg (Admins) at Nov 13 2015, 05:58 PM. 0 comments

Hey guys, currently working on getting a good chat box going for PGRF again. If you want to help me test it out and see what you think, feel free to hop on by clicking "Chat" on the menu bar above. I already tried a couple different chat boxes, but they didn't turn out so well. I want to establish a good one before settling.

State of the Forum Address

Posted by pokemonzrpg (Admins) at Nov 12 2015, 12:16 AM. 71 comments

Greetings, my friends! Just wanted to check in with you all on what's up with the forum as well as toss some ideas around. This admin opportunity sort of fell in my lap in many ways and I don't plan on squandering it.

I want you to know that I have no intention of letting the forum die and am making every effort to fix it up. I am currently working persistently on contacting Pete directly to get a new proper URL as well as promotion for the forum, but I certainly have no guarantees on that. I am not letting up on and will let you know as soon as I have updates on that, but for now we have to work with what we have.

You've probably noticed some changes already, including the Active Topics banner returning, along with additional banners that will switch over time depending on what's relevant. I think it looks pretty nice, but let me know what you think.

If you didn't know, there's also an official PGRF Facebook group now, which will be updated regularly with alerts about new topics and changes being made here on the forum.

I also weeded out some of the podcast sub-forums as well as a lot of the outdated sub-forum mods just because it was bothering me. But there's surely a lot more progress we can make in regards to streamlining, though I didn't want to just go all willy-nilly without passing it by everyone first. Just a couple main proposals for now (eSkilliam had a lot of the same in mind as well):

- Combining the Community Events, YouTube and Podcasts forums into one Community forum.
- Getting rid of the entire Marketplace section of the forum (even at the peak of activity it wasn't used all that much, and certainly doesn't make sense to have now).

And I honestly want to hear ANY ideas you have for progression and improvement of the forum, as well as what you think of these. With the state of the forum as it is, your opinions have certainly never been more valued. I don't plan on giving up on the forum any time soon. I've been constantly exploring the admin tools and hope to help out as much as possible. Perhaps I'll make more general update posts like this in the future as well.
