So I've been thinking about this for ages, but not really got around focusing on it. However I think that a new version of DQ would be neat. There are a few features that I've been considering, but I'd like to hear with you fellow users what you think of them before I actually start the development.
I will redesign the layout and feel of the site and forums. Do you like this bright/white style, or would you rather go back to something more gloom and dark such as the older versions of DQ? Maybe something in-between?
* Automatic uploads to articles section.
Just as it sounds. If your article has been approved by a moderator it will automaticially find its way to the main articles section of the site.
* "Featured"- users.
Quite blurry still, but I've been thinking of a way to give you main users a way to showcase your creative stuff on the front page or somewhere else outside the forums. Basically a moderator/admin can approve you as a featured user, that way your arts/writing/stuff will be pushed onto the main page such as "Latest by Username" once you make a new post about it. Need to work out a few technical details on how this will work exactly
* RPG's section.
Not sure if needed, but from what we've seen RPG's are quite popular around here. It's possible to give this stuff some functionality on the main site. If you have any ideas on anything you might need, post ahead.
At least I imagine that a blog from my side would interest a few of you. It would not be focusing on my personal life or anything like that, but rather on the stuff I'm working on in my free time, since I always work on something even if it's not Castle. I'm thinking smaller more frequent updates than the news posts I give at the moment about my works, perhaps some tips and tricks in software I'm using etc, you get the deal. This could later be expanded to allow user blogs but I'll start off with a personal one.
I urge you guys to use this thread to give suggestions on features you'd like to see in a new version and comment on the ones I've mentioned above. Don't be shy
