Union Enhancements *Awesome, right?*

#1 Posted by julian_jr (83416 posts) -
So we have room for improvement, and could use some ideas for new features, ideas, etc. If anyone has any ideas they want to contribute to the union, this can be the thread to propose them.

Possible Enhancements
1. Inter-union telegram 2. Homepage news 3. Weekly challenge 4. Affiliates system

Problem with that is that it's against Gamespot's union rules as it's spam and they would never do it.

I kind of have an idea, how about a roleplay? We could make a great one and no one can complain due to it not being spam. If lots of people like the idea I'll get more on depth with it.
#8 Posted by lancelot200 (61977 posts) -

But users don't fight each other. This is a different concept.

P.S: I don't participate in role play/story thread but you guys can still do it.

How does that work, I haven't played/heard of that one.

Well the ones here would be different from the usual ones that are sometimes found in some anime unions. They'd be more organized, with an actual story, and in-depth. Here's a link to one in another website, so you can get an idea of what the ones here would be similar to.

Well anythings worth a try I guess. You'd probably have to make up stuff as we go, but I'm up for it. :D

#12 Posted by julian_jr (83416 posts) -
Yeah, basically it's all made up but with a main idea. Someone would be like a narrator, and narrate the story as well (and every once in a while put a twist to keep the story interesting)

Alright. So we have a narrator, then everyone makes up their characters and we through them into a story? Or am I a little mistaken?

But either way, it sounds like it could be worth trying.

#14 Posted by julian_jr (83416 posts) -
Yeah, that's the basic parts of a role-play.

Alright, I have no more ideas on me right now so I'll vote for this 8)

Because a mod was never there probably. It says right there in the rules no type of it is allowed. I'm not trying to preach to be a saint on GS(I most certainly am not) just letting everyone know.

Fight/Battle (or any other variations) - This thread is when users 'fight' with each other. It's nothing but random posting and spamming. It isn't allowed.

Straight from that link lancelot posted.

Julian, looks like no one else is actually helping you. I will make the graphic and host it for you. I can't set it up in the Admin area since I'm not the leader. I can send you a link when I'm finished though. say the word and I'll help.

I wish I could play an instrument sometimes, but I'm just no good. Are you good Julian (I'm assuming you are) 8)

I just recently started playing drums this year, so I'm not that good.

:lol: Drums look easy (but I'm sure they're not). I'd play guitar personally.

#37 Posted by julian_jr (83416 posts) -
They're actually extremely hard. You have to be able to keep a steady beat and keep the time steady when playing.

As I know from Rockand, the drums can make or break your band :P

Marching band...no wonder you took that football thing seriously...

Not just that, all the students at our school were mad. Anyways, this discussion is for the big thread, since I want to keep this thread on-topic.

how about a new image header?

That would be nice, although the current header works fine for now. I think we should worry more about the avatar since we don't have any and also try getting more tags for the union.
#43 Posted by lancelot200 (61977 posts) -
I could ask some friends just to see what they can come up with. They can be as lazy as us so it needs to be direct on MSN. :lol:

After the avatar I recommend more sigs. I could try and come up with something I did make my sig myself (whic Julian still refuses to look at).

#45 Posted by julian_jr (83416 posts) -
Getting some images would be very nice since right now we barely have any. :D
#46 Posted by NFS102 (27011 posts) -
I might do a little somethin tonight since my homework isnt to much. You have anything you want to recommend I do?
#47 Posted by julian_jr (83416 posts) -
An avatar for the union would be nice, since we need that the most right now. ;)
#48 Posted by NFS102 (27011 posts) -
Alrgiht, any recommendations on what said avatar might include? :D
#49 Posted by julian_jr (83416 posts) -
Something that involves cafe. The one we had before it was deleted was just a simple coffee cup saying Social Cafe Union and with some brownish colors to go along with the tags.
#50 Posted by NFS102 (27011 posts) -

Hmm, I'll try and come up with something :D
