May i please stress that is is a public concent test. i want to see how we can improve the site. this is not an opertunity to flame and spam!! You have been warned.

i said i dont really pay that much attention, but i dont think anything should improve, except potds of jokes that almost no one can remember so that the staff has a little more freedom of choosing potds, but thats just me :)

POTD is the only thing that needs improvement.

ya too many people are always nagging others or saying mean things about the potd's or some other thing...

 #5 - Posted by: Kouen (Staff) on 02-29-2008 at 19:05
PotD is probably the one thing [i]we[/i] can't improve, since we don't submit the pics ourselves. Personally I think we could expand the documents section to have more on-site stuff as opposed to the basics and throwing people in all different directions across the 'net for the rest. An on-site collection of tutorials and information would be far less confusing for everyone, really.

not surprised. POTD's would be important, but they arent bad. its the acceptions that are bad. however, the site is great, so keep it up all you peeps. btw, how the HELL does one freaking submit a pic. its JPEG and it still wont be accepted. i have some funny shots, but can upload them. send me a message if u like via my email. which should be on here. or comment back. ;)

 #7 - Posted by: Kouen (Staff) on 02-29-2008 at 19:23
Try lowering the quality, PotDs are limited to 400kb filesize so if your JPEG image is above that then it'll be knocked back by the system.

 #8 - good work - Posted by: _BCA_Master_Z (Member) on 03-01-2008 at 01:39
hey good people the site is good the way it is, good resource of news and files. Keep it up! Greetings, master z

I think that DoW files is alright, it just needs to be buffed up here and there. Killa and Kouen have been doing a good job IMO.

 #10 - Posted by: BadgerNun (Member) on 03-01-2008 at 07:30
I think that perhaps the site needs a little bit of a 'makeover', i.e. make the frontpage look a bit less dull and more modern. How you do this though I don't know.

 #11 - Posted by: Cloud_3 (Member) on 03-01-2008 at 08:05
maybe they should just make it more warhammerish?

 #12 - Posted by: 1000thSon (Member) on 03-01-2008 at 09:04
i like that idea, it's too focused on mods and official game stuff, people are forgetting the 40K lore behind it

 #13 - Posted by: warnat_lord (Member) on 03-01-2008 at 09:19
kinda boring here needs too be um tidy up:borg:

 #14 - Posted by: Nod71 (Member) on 03-01-2008 at 14:42
yea i agree needs a bit more 40k in it

 #15 - more sckin shots - Posted by: redgreen (Member) on 03-01-2008 at 14:50
I THINK when you show a filel some pics shud be shon

 #16 - potd - Posted by: sage62 (Member) on 03-01-2008 at 18:03
pots system should be improved, perhaps you could have a gallery of the days submissions and people could browse through and rate them, and the one with the current highest rating would be shown on the front page, seems like it would work to me, tell me what ypou think:rock:

 #17 - Posted by: Justin0005 (Member) on 03-01-2008 at 18:17
sage62's idea isn't so bad (if it would work) that would help keep away flamers and such (well probably not) as for the poll I chose don't think anything really needs to be changed just keep up the good work!

 #18 - Posted by: conti (Member) on 03-02-2008 at 16:38
that actually would be a good idea.

 #19 - Posted by: dawn_of_hell (Member) on 03-03-2008 at 03:21
sage32 that's a good idea

 #20 - Posted by: LankyDread (Member) on 03-03-2008 at 12:47
I think it would be better if people could vote on multiple potds options so we have one that the majority of people like. Athough I think that would involve a lot of work and I personally wouldn't have a clue how to make something like that. The site is pretty awesome for the most part though.

 #21 - Posted by: Jammy_Dodger (Member) on 03-03-2008 at 16:13
Don't think Sage32 or LankDread's ideas would work. Site layout is uniform between all of filefront's sites, including the PotD. The change would have to be universal, and I don't think the site coders would be looking here for ideas. There's probably a general forum more suited for that sort of suggestion.

WOw, digging against the bottom of the ditch are we? yall have a great staff, and don't get me wrong there are alot of good files coming in, but it seems as thoug hits a desperate move. Then again i like have the newer mods, although i don't play DC very much ( still a DOW fighter ) i still like to look at all the mods. I am eagerly awaiting the Soul Storm ( go dark eldar ) Congrats to you all on the job on the sight though. p.s. Trying to add in small graphics might seem good, a boom here a bang here might be nice, just a thought.

 #23 - Posted by: Pheonix_Master (Member) on 03-04-2008 at 19:28
i have no major complaints, other than everything could use a little tweaking, and the files could be more organised and easier to find

 #24 - Posted by: company_of_death (Member) on 03-06-2008 at 18:09
i agree with phoenix since its a little hard to find the files and stuff
