    Admins you need to approve every site suggestion cause, y'all need anything to keep this forum from dying. Even the long time members know this forum is dying this is what happens when you put all your eggs in one basket(PS3 Modding/COD) Please don't say the forums are active Out of every site suggestion there has to be that could save this forum. Right now NGU is just like "Old Yeller" we only need a BoxHead like to finish it off

Modding is dying and unfortunately, that's pretty much all NGU has to offer. Our coding scene is a bit weak and so is pretty much everything else.
    Hmm, people aren't realizing that PS4 modding is already bringing a huge amount of traffic to NGU, and will keep bringing more traffic as more reputable programmers began testing out their own 1.76's. I mean look, we already have a mod menu and RTM tool for GTA V on the PS4. I'm sure people are still hard at work with save resigning/editing which when does come out, would boost traffic here from both modders and legitimate users (look how many saves we have just in the PS3 section). We have people like SC58, Beach, Specter, Passion, and even content creators looking into the PS4 scene, and we've seen the trophy unlock tool in Advanced Warfare. Right now, it's important for NGU to be on-top of the PS4 scene, and not be out-competed by other forums like TTG or PS3HAX. With that, when people mock GTA for being such a high traffic section on here, spite its age, they fail to see that current-gen modding will bring even more attention to GTA V, BO3, IW, and Modern Warfare 4 Remastered.

    as for the IM chat it's hard to find a stable IM plugin for VB since most are either outdated or super exploitable and writing a IM chat can be very time consuming and can also lead to exploits.

    Although I think it is being looked in to .
    While I wouldn't say "approve all the site suggestions", I believe there are a few that deserve special effort over others, such as the awards-system. Other forums have it, and NGU lacks it. I know it requires hella programming, but it's been some years since they said it would come to NGU. I mean, I've seen the rewards in modcp, and they look nice so far, but it's like that 'Archive' link in shoutbox: "Coming Soon TM"...besides that, yeah, it'd be nice if NGU put up the theme switcher, so people can switch between a variety of themes through a scroll list in a tab, and not be stuck choosing the default or dark theme, or using Stylish.

    Maybe if we had sensible and useful things actually suggested then I'd add more stuff
    People even said it was a stupid idea and waste of time. Why spend any time on something like that? It does nothing for the site when people are banning themselves for whatever reason

    This is a prime example of stupid ideas.

    We approved an IM Chat feature a while back if the requester found one that wasn't a bug riddle piece of shit - nothing came of it.

    This.

    The award system isn't finished because it takes a long time to make one, other forums have it but that's because they bought a half broken plugin. At least ours will be a broken custom plugin.

    But seriously, the only reason it hasn't been finished is because it's one person working on it in their freeish time at the moment. It works, but it's the automation which is the hardest part, especially for a forum of our size, a pre-made one wouldn't work.

    People suggested it, the point he was getting at is approving everything and adding it is not the way to go, because that exact thing happens.

    Someone requested, loads of people said "Yeah, I like that", he made it, and everyone then said it was stoopid.

    Also the reason we ended up with dead sections such as Runescape and Fantasy Sports (because someone, in particular, pestered for the section(s) to be made -- in hopes of being sec of their own section), and then people dismissed the sections altogether. That's why it's nice to see admin being cautious about adding new sections.

    Common sense should have said it was a stupid idea. I don't even know why a thread like this is even being entertained.

    "Stupid" is very subjective. I could go on a yap about rules and things implemented here that I believe are "Stupid Idea's" But your the admin here so do what ever you believe to be best for the site.

    At first I made this thread for the lols and to see people reactions. I used to say it all the time in the shoutbox, but never got a reaction so I decided to make a thread. By me making a thread I'm getting a good laugh and admins are actually replying to the users of NGU. It's kinda nice to see everyone giving their 2 cents on what should happen and why it's not happening.

    Or the fact that we started the fantasy sports section at the end of the NFL season. so if you're talking about me fuck off, it was a good idea.

    Writing any piece of code can lead to exploits. Just cos it's an IM doesn't mean it's any more or less exploitable than, say, a news system or forum page. Provided the developer puts the time in, runs many unit tests, and uses common sense, it'd be fine.

    "Stupid" isn't subjective when it is actually just a stupid idea. Yeah let's go ahead and put a PSN bomber on NGU, let's see how that works out.. genius..
