Ah, that explains the 107 bumped threads in my User CP today.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Ok, I was a bit worried that it was going to keep showing all. I much prefer this idea then because I do seem to miss some posts between checking at home & work .

Yeah the idea I mentioned is that everywhere would have the same theme, but shows the superhero styling when in that area, C3V styling when there, maps styling when there, etc.

I'm thinking we would benefit from something more custom in a few ways and that gets harder.

If, and only if, you know how to use your browser's privacy mode, go into the privacy mode and then goto test.heroscapers.com to see a snapshot of Heroscapers using the default vBulletin v4 styling. It is nicer than the default v3 styling, which I don't have available to show you easily. (Do not go to that website outside of privacy mode or it can confuse you regular Heroscapers logins). You can also play around with some features there. I also installed, but haven't configured some integrated wiki software there.

I think the last time this came up most people said they like having Similar Threads. I'm not sure if I've ever used the feature myself (i.e., visited a suggested link), but I think others do regularly. (Do you guys?)

I'd like to repurpose the feature such that anytime you start to create a new thread and type in the title of the would-be thread, it would automatically show you the list of similar threads (which just does similar title matching anyway) right between the title area and where you would type the message to start the thread. The idea is that the system is basically doing a automatic search for you to see if what you want to talk about has already been discussed. If so, you can reply to an existing thread if it matches up well enough. (I think Cavalier would approve. ) If nothing matches up well enough, you just go ahead and create the new thread as normal.

Indeed. We're getting there.

Re: Let's Build Heroscapers 3.0 Together

I have, on occasion, visited the similar threads links before. But as Mars says, they are usually very outdated and many times not very relevant.

Re: Let's Build Heroscapers 3.0 Together

I like the similar threads as they are. Particularly in the "Events" subforum, it helps me find older events from the same location quickly.

I also like similar threads as they are.

I like the idea of using the similar threads panel to show similarly named threads when you start a new thread.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: Let's Build Heroscapers 3.0 Together

Minor thing relating to the new notification system: I wish that when I look at a thread, it clears out my notifications that I've been quoted in it. As is, I have to drill through my notification system and open up a new link to clear out the little numbers in bold.

Just a little thing, but no harm in mentioning it.

Seconded. My suggestion for the clear notifications button is a simple fix for it, but ideally they would clear automatically as they get viewed in a thread. The latter might be harder, though.

Re: Let's Build Heroscapers 3.0 Together

A more comprehensive way to filter / search the Maps section. There was a website that some people may remember being hosted by some guys from another country (Czech Republic maybe?) that was awesome, but since has stopped being hosted. It gave you a way to search for 2, 3, 4 player maps. Hit checkboxes for which expansion sets you wanted included in your search etc. It was a faceted search that worked off tags applied to maps.
