Well, to start with there arent many things to do having nothing about the website. maybe you could add a general chat board or even a film board just to boost up the members attraction of the website.

why is it only moderators can post point and click games?

skittles
08-06-2005, 08:34:18
i know, right? so guests usually dont check our new games out since most of them look for point and click games under the "point-and-click" category.

Vortex
08-06-2005, 13:35:21
the reason why that is beacause we dont want normal members to post random games. :)

Hi,

first off, please don't get this wrong, but I have a problem. I'm reading both this site and flash.plasticthinking.org quite regularly and lately I noticed many games appear at flash.p.o and shortly after that they come up here. Over the time it gets rather frustrating to mostly find games at gamershood.com I had played one or two days ago at f.p.org and no fresh ones.

Could you try getting the games from original sources and not other "flash lists"? I know it's probably quite hard to find new games all the time, but getting the same content over and over again from several sites (online.sector.sk also often lists games that appeared elsewhere just days ago) is boring.

If this is a coincidence and maybe both you and f.p.o. get many games from the same source by chance, sorry for ranting. But otherwise it'd be really fine if you could try and get the games from somewhere else.

A late merry christmas,
Fuxjolt

PS: Of course I could just cease visiting gamershood.com if I don't like the games here, but I really liked this site when most games where unknown to me. So I'm missing this currently. :)

I just wanted to add that I posted the same at f.p.o., because it also happens that the game was here first and 1-2 days later at f.p.o. So it's not that I say you copy their content, more like you both do it. :)

GamersHood
12-28-2005, 01:19:15
For first, thanks for the feedback!

I try to say it as short as possible.

We get most of our games from the people who submit them here (http://www.gamershood.com/submit.html). And i think this is the right place to say "Thank You".

And. There are many many sites who distribute p'n'c and other this kind of games. The flash plasticthinking is just one of them.

And about the delay you was talking about. Like you see, the server is slow at the moment, so, it's very frustrating to submit games. I'm working with the new server at the moment. That's why the games appear few days later sometimes. It just takes some time to check the real games and spam. I have to submit games what people submit. I just can't ignore them or can i? If they copy links from other sites, fine, how can i check that.

And one more thing. Many peolpe who visit other this kind of sites are visiting this site too. And some of them submit new games and so on and on and on.

Shortly i wanted to say that we just don't copy literally games from other sites. Our visitors leads us. That's how the things are rolling. Thank you again submiters.
And ofcourse we got our origin sources to check(BBC, Sarbakan, EyeMaze etc.)

And Merry Christmas to you too. And happy New Year :)

Hi,

I don't want to sound fussy, but I realized that some names of games are wrong spelled on Gamershood, e.g.
Firefall instead of Firewall
Detective Hearts Case 01 instead of Detective Hearst Case 01

Of course, things like these can happen if we are typing quickly (happens to me, too).

But this causes problems when people want to look for games by using the search function.

Hope you don't mind my remark here. Besides I like to be a member of Gamershood and I think everything else is great!

Hi!
I suggest to put the 'hot' games in a family! or make an pictogram, like an warning (that you do with words) in the little presentation of the game. I have no problem of morality with them ( I'm an adult) but even if I say to my kids ( who like to play on gamershood) not to play these games, I 'm always afraid they click on it.
They do not read english!!!
what do you think of it?
thank's to answer me!

Mistery
05-19-2006, 15:01:56
I know that the desicion is up to GamersHood but still I wanted to post my opinion.
I guess that your idea is a good one and I support it.
However we must be aware that specific symbols for games with adult content could have two opposite effects:
- Minors who accept that those games are not for them could easily make out which games they should not click (and this would be especially good for kids who don't know English very well)
- On the other hand kids who don't accept that such games are not for them could be even more attracted by the "forbidden" symbol).

As I said I support your idea but it is of course not possible for us to make sure that games with adult contents are are not played by minors. Putting them in one forum together would make it even easier to find them for those kids who still would play them. Therefore I would prefer just adding a warning sign and leave them in the category where they are.

GamersHood
05-19-2006, 19:53:28
The easiest and probably the best solution is to put a warning sign. But it's up to my programmer who is a bit busy at the moment.
I would also add a "sign thingy" what would say the language of the game. So it would be easier to find English games only.

But like i said, unfortunately it's not up to me at the moment but i will let you know when it's done :)

A quick question:
Couldn't we use for the threads the warning sign (the triangle with the exlamation mark) for the moment?

Yes, that's a good idea. It's the least i, moderators and visitors can do here at forums when they post a new topic.
Tomorrow or sooner i can change the exclamation mark a bit, if you like, i can change it to "a red ring" or something.

Mistery
05-19-2006, 20:08:44
Yes, something like that would be great!
And then we could start labeling threads with adult contents.

A warning sign on the game server and also a language label would be also great, but I see that these things take time.
But at least we could start categorising the threads in the next couple of days. http://www.websmileys.com/sm/happy/1219.gif

05-19-2006, 21:18:04
I really want to thank you to have retain my suggestion!
I understand what you say, Mistery about the bad effect. but if the game is marked, the child can't say that he didn't know, he takes his responsability.
I read the forum during several months before register and I could see that you were a good team!
thank you so much

Mistery
05-19-2006, 21:24:13
Thanks for your nice words, ender. Yes, I think that we are a dream team and it's a pleasure to work with such a great team!
http://www.websmileys.com/sm/happy/1166.gif
Right, I guess I will start to add the warning sign to threads over the week-end but the whole work will need some time.
I would be glad if you could support us a little bit - so if you detect games that have no verbal warnings so far, or if you see that I or other staff members miss to add a warning sign to a game that should have one, please don't hesitate to tell us (e.g. send a PM to one of the moderators with the link to the game thread). Thank you.

I agree this all is a great idea. I will have some free time this week. I will see if I can help out with some warnings as well. I really like the red exclamation mark, idea as well. It is like ender says...

...if the game is marked, the child can't say that he didn't know, he takes his responsability.
That really would be true. It would also definately help parents better figure out what games are okay for thier kids.

Hello!

I think it would be great if there was a section for games (in each genre) that are in english. Many times I get excited to play a game only to be disappointed that I don't understand the language.

Thanks for your time.

hehe, sweet dreams :d

I can find more skins etc so you can choose from different styles. But if i update the forums, then i have to close the forums for some time. The upgrade is in my mind since spring :d Don't know about other things what comes with the new version but there's definitely some new "attractions". Anyway, thanks for reminding me the upgrade :)

Mistery

Hehe Megadoomer, nice dream. Jumping GamersHood avatars at the side,lol?
I only had some nightmares about the riddle games, but not about the forums in general (so far, lol).

One problem that comes up is when you are playing on the the NotPr0n style riddles that if you are stuck on a particularly tough riddle it can be hard to search the forums and find what you need quickly.. For example if you are having trouble on level 13, you can't search for 13, or lvl, because they are too small, and people don't always add a level number to the post anyway.

Suggestions I have for fixing this are varied:

In the first post that introduces the game you could ask players to add a line like LEVEL13 to the top of each post.. hard to get them to do that, but it would help.

The most work intensive solution involves creating a subthread for each level. This may take more work and policing on the part of the moderators, so it isn't a very good solution either.

I think a good compromise would be to create a sticky that lists spoiler hints (not answers) at the beginning of the thread. One post that could hold the most common hints given for each riddle. This may work out because there is usually a moderator or two playing the riddle anyway.

Are there any other/better ideas?

Remember, it may seem like I'm asking a lot, but having some organization will help cut down redundant "Help with level 13" posts. Sometimes good clues have been given five times already and people just didn't search or know how to properly search the forum.

Thanks for reading my rant

murph_3
08-13-2006, 05:11:57
omg...i think thats a GREAT idea!!! especially when there are like 115 pages!!!

Mistery
08-13-2006, 05:33:40
I see the problem that you describe here. It is not really possible to search for levels at the moment. If you wanted to have the possibility, people should add level numbers of course, but they also would have to write level+number in one word (e.g. "level12"), otherwise (e.g. for "level 12") the search system would show you all the posts with the word "level". So at the moment it is even a better idea to search for other clue words of the specific levels than for the level number.

But as I have experienced some of the players don't even look into the thread, just post their question at the end of it. We have so many walkthroughs (not in the riddle category of course) to which we have added the link in the first post, and there are still a lot of questions posted. And although we have added to most of the riddle games in the first post how to make spoilers, this question is asked over and over again in the thread ;-) So a collection of hints would certainly cut down a certain amount of those questions but there would be still the same questions posted I think.

Well, adding the hints continually would be too much of work for us mods if you ask me (this is my personal opinion and might be different from the opinios of other mods).
We have to watch the whole forums and there is a lot going on in other categories aswell, not only in the riddle category. If I log in in the morning when I get up, it takes me at least 1-1.5 hours to check quickly through all new posts (even then I might miss 1-2 of them). And if I'm online for a longer time, there is also a lot going on (lots of new posts, technical questions on games, general questions on games, questions on the forum features, checking links, looking for alternative links if old links don't work etc.) so that I haven't been even able to play many games lately.
The additional task of checking all the riddle threads continually for good hints, collecting them and updating a post (e.g. first post) with those would be too much of additional work for me to be honest. Although I can understand your request.
However, if you and other players would take the responsibility to collect the good hints from time to time, post them and send a PM with the link to the game and the post number to one of the moderators, we can copy-paste and add them to the first post. This would be no problem at all.

Well, this is what I personally think, maybe other moderators will post another opinion on that topic.

GamersHood
08-13-2006, 11:50:42
In agree with Mistery, users should collect and send hints via PM to moderators or to me. This is the best way in my opinion.

Eternal Becky
08-13-2006, 12:11:16
Yes that is a good idea. I think most of the moderators are playing riddles these days. So it is easier to collect good hints and gather them up in one place and then add it in the lead post. The idea of adding level numbers in the subject while giving hints will be really good. Whenever I want to give a hint for a certain level I usually mention the number in the subject. This way it becomes easier when we use the search engine :)

Maybe we can open a sub forum in the walkthroughs forum called as "Hints for riddles" and in the sub forum of "Hints for riddles" we can start a thread with hints for each riddle. Just like the subforum we have for DoodleBoard in "General chat"
Then we can just give the link of it in the lead post of every riddle game. Just like we do for the walkthroughs of escape games.
For example
Name of sub forum ~ Hints for riddles
>>>Another online riddle ( hints for all levels )
>>>>Notspam ( hints for all levels )
and so on.

Flipmode
08-13-2006, 16:23:25
It all sounds like more work for moderators, but I really think it would cut down a lot of the redundant, annoying posts that some people create. How many times have I seen the same user post three or four times in a row and you have to fix it? Or they ask you for help every other level when all they really needed was a more effective way to search the forum.. I think an improvement to the status quo would be win - win for users and mods. 20% of posts would likely dissappear, and users would get what they need. If there is some way that I can help, I'd be more than happy too since I opened the can of worms. I do like these forums - nice community :)

Mistery
08-14-2006, 15:44:13
I agree, we got a nice community on GamersHood :-)
As I said, I see your point and I'm not saying that I would not help to build up such a system at all, but I don't think that moderators can take the whole and official responsibility for it.
I think we should all work together on realising a place for hints for the riddle games. And I hope that it will work like we imagine it right now :-)

I have an....."idea"...
We have a "Creativity" forum, a "News" forum, a "Music" forum, a "Movies" forum, a "Sport" forum, and some other forums...why don't we have a "Books" forum? It's just something that I noticed some days ago, and there are many people on GH that like reading and it would be cool to have a forum where we could talk about books, like in "Music", "Movies" and "Sport" forums.
What do you think?

Forgive me if this exists but I haven't spotted it. A feature to view games in
a specific category by submission date as opposed to alphabetical order would be nice.

i.e.

Newly suggested games or more or less chronological. But there are folks
like myself who think riddles aren't games at all and are overly abundant :-).

I admittedly don't care for anything on gamershood but the pnc games.
Unfortunately when I don't watch the new games list I will occasionally miss
a good one.

I cannot help but add how poor the descriptions of some games and
their play is presented. My only guess is many of the moderators do not
use English as their primary language.

Mistery
06-02-2007, 01:26:13
You have the possibility to view games by category AND date on the game site, e.g. for point-and-click games in order of date:

http://www.gamershood.com/list.php?id=4&order=date&p=1


The descriptions of the games are given by the poster, and not necessarily by the moderators; though you are correct, some of the moderators do not use English as their primary language, like myself ;)


Well, there are players who like riddle games ;)


I hope that my answer clears it for you, if you have any questions left, please post again :)

Probably you're mentioning me in your post. I have to admit that my English is poor and there're little descriptions of the games I've submitted so far. BUT it's not because many moderators don't use English as their primary language, but just my English ability.

I want you to understand that I'd submitted the games even before becoming a moderator, to introduce the Japanese games in this site.

And if many mambers want the good descriptons of the games, which I can't work because of the limits of time and my English, maybe I should stop introducing the games from now on.

If one cannot understand a Japanese game because the description is not long enough, then PM:ing you I think is a better solution. Pleeeeeeeeaaaaase don't stop submitting games http://www.millan.net/minimations/smileys/begging.gif (http://www.millan.net). I have so much fun with Japanese room escape games.

So don't go blaming your bad english abilities I've understood plenty of it and enjoyed all your games you submitted so next time someone says something rude just brush it off because some people do it just for the attention. So ignore them next time, and PLEASE keep submitting games for us to play :smile:

There is feature to view games by submission date or in alphabetic order within a specific game category.

Go to: www.gamershood.com
Choose the game category you want in the games menu.
Click the sort method you prefer (see screenshot).

@Lili, don't feel personal attacked by this all. :) There are many members who submit games and a lot of them do not use English as their primary language. In example myself, although I haven't submitted a game in a very long time, I am a member who is struggling with English more then I like. :P And even the ones who use English as their primary language are not always that good in English, but that doesn't matter. Every submitting of a game is appreciated, if it's only the effort a member has put into this. :) And a little note aside, sometimes there isn't a game description at all, whatever the primary language of the submitter is. But by just playing the game and helping each other out, this hasn't be a problem at all. Again, there is no reason to feel vocative by this, you are doing great, really. :) And even if there is something unclear, they can always ask. ;) Please don't stop with submitting games, because some members start to moan about game descriptions. :P

Riddles are the most active forum here, & because these games are so well loved, you may see the ative members submit them, because they love these games so much.

Personally, I prefer the Escape games & I prefer not to play riddles either. I also like the action packed arcade games, so I too love when they are submitted. If you see your favorite types are not here, you should really submit some. You are always able to add your favorite types, so when you come you can find them here.

I think all the games should have bunnies in them & there are way more games without them, but it would be insane for me to expect others to want just them here. LOL I'm not going to dismiss other's favorites. :P



I cannot help but add how poor the descriptions of some games and
their play is presented. My only guess is many of the moderators do not
use English as their primary language.

We leave the addition of games mostly up to what the members would like to add. If you would like to see more of you favorite PNC games, please add them here. I'm always adding more bunny games. :haha:

Oh... & by the way, I've been a moderator here for a while, English IS my 1st language, & I literally aced my English courses in college. I personally, see that there are great explanations to the games, on the main page. The Game site owner may not have English as his first language, but he always gives an excellent English description for what each game is about. Maybe you should look at those pages more closely. As Adventure says, you can even organize the pages alphabetically. Your arguments really don't stand up if you really look at those pages. You can organize them to your preference. Some of my moderator team members do not speak English as thier first language. However, they are ALL intellegent, ALL speak English quite well, & understand it quite well, so I find this comment unfounded as well.

maybe something like bumping threads every 20 minutes???
say theres a thread thats in the same section as yours but it has no new posts and yours does, so you can bump the thread to make it come out on the forums every 20 minutes??, ok i know you dont understand this but its hard to explain........oh and only the creator of the thread can bump it

edit times and button?
say spoilers have buttons you could have an edit button to see what time the person wrote the edit , because sometimes its like a game a year old and someone needs help on it, so they edit their last post,but people just think that the person wrote the edit a year ago and they dont give help :(

Mistery
06-19-2007, 02:31:01
If someone edits a post, there is a little text at the bottom of the post saying when and by whom it was edited.
For example: "Last edited by Mistery : 1 Week Ago at 08:12 AM."

Bumping threads in general should not be done, and is not allowed.
However, we don't mind if someone who has not received an answer after 1-2 weeks, posts again. ;)

Lately i've become dissapointed in Gamershood. Very few new games, and they are not online.
Whatever happened to "Online Games Paradise"???
I don't play games that i have to download because i get problems with my pc.
I only play online.
Please, don't give us anymore downloadable games!!!
Keep them Online!
I've been a Gamershood fan for a long time, but that changed this summer, with all the downloadables.

Mistery
09-03-2007, 20:55:22
Hi aniholl. Well I think that we have continually added a lot of new online games since ever. I'm not sure if you have read the Rules (http://www.gamershood.com/forum/showthread.php?t=5274) and are aware of the fact that all new games are posted in the New Games (http://www.gamershood.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=31) subforum. These are usually added to gamershood.com about 3 times per week, however in exceptional cases (if GamersHood is very busy or in vacation), this can take more time. This has been the case in the last 2 weeks, so that less new games have been added to gamershood.com as usual. But a lot of new games are in the New Games subforum and ready to play for members and guests. The amount of new online games hasn't changed over time, and therefore the name Online Games Paradise is still valid ;)

About the downloadable games: There are members who also enjoy to play those games, therefore we won't stop adding them. The majority of the added games are still online games, and you can just take a look at your favorite categories of games. Nobody is forced to play download games, but members who like them, should be able to do so.

First I want to thank you all for the great games and lovely company here on GH! I've become very addicted to all the characters and the games, especially riddles, in the past few weeks :$.
So :appl: for that! :leb:

I've noticed that the moderators very often have to replace new games posted by members/users from whatever subcategory to the New Games category. Why don't you disable the possibility to post in the other games categories? There must be a way to do that through changing read and write rights, isn't there? I think it will save you as moderators some (or maybe even quite some) work, that you will be able to spend on other activities (such as playing the forum games or visiting the Chit Chat 3 ;) :D ).
Maybe this is something you've already thought about and isn't possible, sorry then :).

Thanks again for making GH such a welcoming and entertaining place!
:hug2: Iva

Thank you for your friendly words, your positive feedback and the fact that you are caring about GH and us mods, Iva. :) This is very much appreciated. :hug2:

So far as I know it is indeed possible to disable the possibility to post new threads in a certain subforum, but then are members not able to post at all. You could resemble it with the sub-forum the bin. ;) To be honest, I myself haven't really looked into this possibility and I will do this later today. :) (Unless in the main time another mod or our admin tells it not possible. :P) But if the outcome tells it is indeed not possible, it isn't that worse. It only takes some seconds to move a thread from one sub-forum to another sub-forum. vBulletin software is very user-friendly. ;)

Iva

Hello GH moderators and administrator. I've been surfing a lot of forums recently and I have noticed their user signatures. Most of them have picture signatures. All I'm asking is: Is there an option on vBulletin to have picture signatures? If not, then it's okay. I was just wondering, that's all. :) Maybe I have seen many forums but none of them can compare to GH. I mean really, this forum is the best. Everybody's friendly and stuff and I just love to spend time here. :)

Here is an example: [Picture attached in the end of the post]
The credits for this signature go to user Kraxxuz at www.GTAForums.com (If I'm not allowed to post links to other forums then moderators can delete it freely).

Thanks again for making such a great place. :luv:

Maybe you'll think of me as a picky person after this but could it be possible to have higher space for signature pictures? 19.5 KB is not really sufficient for a picture, at least the ones I've been wanting to have. Could it be possible to have a higher space?

If positive, than thank you very much in advance! The signature picture feature is just great!
If negative, then it's okay. Thanks just for adding the feature. http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i47/bbwangelinny/010104ok1.gif

Hi Hitman,

Hmmm, I think that the reason is that we don't like to have big images as signature pics. The signature shouldn't outweigh the post content, which should still remain in the focus.

I often post screenshots when I post a new game, and my screenshots are usually around 10-15 kB - and they are not very small.
I'm not sure what kind of images you have tried, or why they have a bigger file size. Could you attach to this thread such an image as example?

Hitman
03-12-2008, 21:15:01
Certainly, Mistery. Here's a small image but it's size is big. I could decrease it's quality and by doing so, reduce it's size but the image doesen't look that good this way. :sad:

Mistery
03-12-2008, 21:21:47
Thanks Hitman, we're looking into it.
I think that a general increasement of the file size won't be approved for the reasons mentioned above, but we'll try to find a solution.

EDIT
Just want to check the quality change to your original image with mine:


7384

7385

Mine are under 19 kB, and from my point of view they have not a bad quality - what do you think Hitman?

Hitman
03-13-2008, 00:38:12
I can't tell the difference between your picture and mine. It looks fantastic! Thanks Mistery! :hug2:

Mistery
03-13-2008, 00:40:29
No problem :)
Hope you get one of them to work (both images in my post are small versions ;)), otherwise PM me :)

(Btw, I used GIMP, and chose "save as..." and set it around 95% - so the quality loss is small, but the image size is much smaller)

Hitman
03-13-2008, 00:52:44
When I used GIMP I always set the quality on 85% but 95? That's even better. Gonna start using GIMP again.
Thanks again Mistery...

On the Forum Games,

games such as Name/LastnameGame you have the names ending a lot of the time in an "N" or something; same as for AnimalChain where you have the same letters repeating, (and some other games)

Why not change the rules for the for a while where it can go in alphabetical order?

EscapeGirl
07-07-2008, 19:37:39
There's no big need to. ;) It's okay if the names and animals have to repeat themselves. :) Also, we do have other forum games that are quite similar but require the answers to be in alphabetical order. ;)

gh1
07-08-2008, 02:19:40
well i guess it doesn't mean much that i say that, because i can't change the rules of a few games.. I don't know how big of a deal it would be to do so, seems to be it just would be a better game if you had the rules changed.. i'm sure it wouldn't have any catastrophic effects eh.

the games always end in the E or A or what have you.. it's kinda boring if you have same answers/letters all the time........... that's my case, i'm not pleading it anymore.. i don't care :'( :P

The time of editing a post will only show up automatically after editing a post that was submitted 10 minutes ago or longer.

However when you give up a reason to edit your post, this edit message will show up with the time of editing, no matter how much time there was between editing and submitting.

I hope this clarifies it. If not, please post again. :)

I was wondering if we could remove or lessen the restriction of posting time between visitor messages :), because when your trying to send a mass holiday greeting or something to multiple people (Over the number of 10) you have to wait quite a bit due to a 30 second wait time :S

02-20-2009, 02:28:42
oh i hate the waiting time it should be a little shorter and i find myself with alot of wait 1 more second wich makes me kinda mad

EscapeGirl
02-20-2009, 19:22:29
Thank you for your suggestions, Heart and Funja. :) I understand your frustration. :( However, this is one of our best defenses against spammers, so moderation feels it would be best to keep the 30 second restriction. This delay helps keep spammers from attacking our community. Some forums have up to an entire minute between posts for that reason. So, I'm sorry we can't change that.

Please keep in mind that if you're PMing greetings, you can include up to 5 members in a PM. :D

WARNING COMMERCIAL: This is a suggestion to make users profiles more interesting... someone may have mentioned this before!

I want to add music to my profile page. It would be 100% awesome if there was a slot to upload a track into (mp3 only) and have it play on a loop while ppl are looking at your page. Also sound effects! When someone clicks 'leave visitor message' I wanna add my own special noise. Or even if I could choose from a range that's available. I found this site: http://www.partnersinrhyme.com/pir/PIRsfx.shtml seems to have free (copyright free) sounds...

Hi leapfrog, thank you for your suggestion. :)

UPDATE

Hi leapfrog,
GamersHood has decided not to install a music player for the moment.
Uploading mp3 files would put an additional strain on the server, so this won't be possible anyway.
Personal/customized sounds (like you said for visitor messages etc.) are not possible at the time being. Maybe there will be future developments that will allow customized sounds.

Hey I had a suggestion. I was thinking itd be nice to have a sort of tag system for games around here, instead of just having to search for words in the name of the game. Like if I wanted to play a tycoon game I could search tycoon or if I wanted to play a game by Minoto I could search for that and get everything tagged with that word. They do this on Youtube and Deviantart, I like it alot.

I don't know what the setting are for the promoted registered users, but when I wanted to add 4 tags to the thread below (and the thread hadn't any tags yet), only 2 out of 4 tags were added and I got this error message:

Some tags couldn't be added for the following reason(s):
* The number of tags you tried to add to this thread exceeded the maximum number of tags by 2.
Changes that did not cause errors have been applied.
The tags that I couldn't add were: riddle, online riddle.


Edit: Is it maybe also possible to decrease the time between reporting posts? Now it is 60 seconds. I would agree that 1 minute isn't that much, but i.e. 30 seconds sounds a lot better to me. :)

A very big thank you to the moderation team to fulfill my requests. :hug2:
I am really glad that members can now add 5 tags to threads, and the time between reported posts is now only 30 seconds. :) Really very much appreciated! :hug2:

allow debating in forum.

Mistery
01-06-2010, 09:20:59
I don't know of what kind of debating you are thinking of.
GamersHood Forums is primarily an online game forums, with focus on getting and giving hints on games. While we have extended the forums to make it possible for members to discuss different topics, or to show their artwork etc., the forums is not really meant for debates on e.g. political or religious views.
We certainly appreciate members share their own opinions in a civilized manner, but also expect members to show a respectful behavior towards others. Opinions can be a result of cultural background, education, and personal experience, and concerning many topics there is no clear right or wrong.
Unfortunately many people think that debating means to try to convince everyone of their opinions, and therefore debates often end up in fights and hurt feelings. And this is something that we do not wish to deal with on this forums.

This is not an official response from the GH Staff, just how I personally see it.
However, I'll be passing on your request to the moderation team. And maybe you can specify a bit more what you mean with your suggestion :)

hmm i wonder if a treasure hunt could be made on gamershood
u would receive a clue then go to the correct place on the forums to receive the next clue and so on...

also if somebody could create a forum on how to create a riddle game (step by step)

Mistery

A treasure hunt sounds like an interesting idea - I'm wondering too, if it could be made. I have to think about it :)

How to create a riddle? You mean creating the levels, or the technical aspect (upload it to a host)?

That makes me think of the advent calendar on Nord. I think it's possible in theory. The one who makes the treasure hunt, creates a thread with the rules and the first hint, and they can edit their old posts to add the new clues.
Not sure how it work out in reality, but the idea is certainly interesting. :)


Sorry to hear you still have troubles creating pages with webs. :( Did you already looked for tutorials on Youtube? :?

creating the levels
although the technical part would be great too if u like

@adventure
yes i tried youtube (i found how to create a website using webs.com)
but not a riddle game

Mistery
01-06-2010, 23:39:58
Hmmm, I can't imagine at the moment how to make a step-by-step instruction on how to create levels :hmm: I mean if I made a step-by-step tutorial for 5 levels for example, then you'd have 5 levels created by me and not your own riddle...
You are an avid riddle player, so you know the usual "tricks" that are used. And of course, if you feel creative, you can come up with your custom ideas. I don't think that there is a recipe how to create riddle levels. :S

I usually have some basic ideas about puzzles that I want to include, then look around on Purplehell and some other sites for codes and ciphers, and do lots of searches on Wikipedia.

I'd be really happy to help, but currently I just can't think how without creating your riddle :hmm:

For the technical part, feel free to ask here for support with a description of your problem:

The suggestion of a "scavenger hunt" based on GH is very similar to several others that I know about-

1. As Adventure noted- the Advent Calendar on Nord. Usually an Admin or SuperMod did this .. or if at all possible you can enlist the help of the mods to have more places to hide clues/hints. We also had an Egg Hunt one year- the member did this all herself... created a list of hints/clues to who the members were- eggs were hidden in their guestbook profiles.

2. An old member of Nord once did a riddle and many of his levels were based on Nordinho and the members. Sadly it is no longer available :( I loved it and did finish it- was wildly popular then (around 2005-2006)

3. Clever Waste of Time does their own version of a "Scavenger Hunt"-- called Invasion. A clue/riddle is given on the forum. The teams must solve the riddle to find the final destination- then snap a picture of it in real time (with team sign) to win the round. "Rounds" are equivalent to levels. This takes longer but is an interesting way to meet people from all over. More info here:
CWoT Invasion II (http://invasion.cleverwasteoftime.com/forum/index.php).
He SAYS he's starting Invasion II part 2 in January but I don't see any news yet. The original Invasion forum is gone but if you find the CWoT Riddle forum there is a section in there with threads for all the rounds including solutions.

There is also a good thread somewhere on the Purple Hell forum by Coyote Ugly about either creating or solving riddles I don't remember now.

Good luck :)

I stumbled onto this post
http://www.gamershood.com/forum/showpost.php?p=31324&postcount=54
I don't know if this button still exists (never seen it), but I would love if you could organize games by their submitting date.

When games are moved fast from the New Games sub-forum to their categories, it's easy to miss games. Certainly when you didn't check for new games for a longer time.

Or when that's complicated or not possible, maybe it would be possible to just add the submitting date after each thread without having to view the lead post? I know Nord had this before they moved to the new site.

Mistery
01-21-2010, 09:58:24
I don't know what is technically possible in VBulletin (Nordinho has used some custom made things). I'll ask GamersHood what is possible.
However, if you want to check new games, it's the easiest to go to gamershood.com where you can list the games by date, and even by genre plus date :)

Adventure
01-21-2010, 13:47:01
Thanks Mystery. :)
I especially go to the main game page to check out the new games from time to time. I just think it would be nice to have such feature on the forums too. No rush or anything, and if it gets difficult then nevermind. :)

Just got a reply from Gamershood and he said that it's possible to sort threads by their creation date. Gonna check it.

Would making a thread about easy point and click games(adventure/spot the difference/escape room), or any game, sound reasonable..... I like to play them but i don't know which ones to go to for a fun time. Maybe a rating on the difficulty.

EscapeGirl
03-05-2010, 09:46:55
That's a good idea. :) However, I'm not sure it can be implemented... I'll talk to the other mods about it. :)

In the meantime, maybe you could start a thread in the GAMES CHAT subforum (as long as one doesn't already exist) for people to post links to games here that are more simple, easy, time-waster type games. :)

EDIT: Sorry, GH1. Looks like it wouldn't be doable, but I hope the idea of a thread will help you out. :)

1. I would like to see that you can make changes to your post in the new games section without the message last edited on ....

2. And the search function which doesn't have a limit on letters or words which are too common. More google style so you can use "", i searched on the homepage and the forum for "The Right Mix" and nothing showed but still the game was there.

Mistery
04-28-2010, 23:29:07
Thanks for your suggestions Oscar :)

I don't think that we can make different options for editing notes for a certain subforum, but we'll look into it if it's possible.

The search feature is a part of the vBulletin, and I think that it won't be possible to do changes on that - unless it's possible at the cost of a major server resource (which is already a problem).

I'd suggest you to additionally do a search on gamershood.com for titles with common words where we don't have this limitation - this is what I am practicing, too :)
Doesn't work in 100% of the cases, but most of the times.

Another possibility is to go to Google and type in the search bar:
site:gamershood.com/forum right mix
and it turns up :)

The messaging system is there so that notes may be left especially from moderation. (So people won't wonder why their posts changed).
Right now, the way the forum is set up, there is a 5 minute time delay before the "Last edited by..." comes up. So, if you make changes before that time the message won't show. I can understand though how you would see it as messy, when you have no reason to leave a note.

Thanks for letting us know. :)

Sorry for the double post, but here is an Update:

The forums have been set at one minute delay. This means you have a minute after you post a thread, to update it before it shows an edit statement. It's needed to show honesty in the forums, & as I said before, it also needed by moderators, so we can assist people with updates in thier posts. It's a tool because we really want to help you all get used to how the forums work. ;)

I hope this answers your question. Thanks again OscarW. :)

A suggestion when a post is binned, you can delete it. The post is no longer needed and you are aware it was a mistake. So the post doesn't have a function anymore.

Mistery
07-15-2010, 17:16:41
We do clean out the bin from time to time, but there are many new members who then repost it not realizing that their thread has been deleted, and because they think that it is gone by mistake.
That's why we usually move it to the bin, and often leave a redirect for a certain amount of time :)

I've got a couple of suggestions.

1 Can we have the old inbox/outbox warning system which tells you how much % you have left.

2 A shortcut for the following message, it doesn't come out right when copied

"Please use spoilers to give hints:
Enter text here...

Please do not post a video walkthrough for at least 7 days."

11-16-2010, 06:01:26
Hi OscarW,

for the Inbox one I'll ask the Admin to look into it.

For the next one I can offer my method: I placed the Spoiler text in a Textfile and placed it on the Bookmarktags on FF. Now I just open it and copy paste it from there. If You want I can PM you the text I used.

Adventure
11-16-2010, 11:57:18
Hi Oscar,

1. you mean to have to PM folder controls/statistics at the very top instead of the very bottom?
If so I agree, and I put it on my list for our Admin some time ago.

2. Copy and paste this instead

"Please use spoilers to give hints:
Enter text here...


Please do not post a video walkthrough for at least 7 days."

OscarW
11-16-2010, 12:12:37
Hello Adventure, I didn't notice there were those things at the bottom and i'm glad you agree. And thank you for the text but is it possible to add an extra box in Additional Options?

Adventure
11-16-2010, 16:59:35
No surprise you didn't noticed it. It's not an eye catcher at the bottom and that's too the reason why my in-box gets full all the time without being aware of it in advance. Now I think about it, it used to mention under Notifications at the top of the page when your inbox got full for 90 percent or more. Going to add that to my list. I hope our admin turtle will have time soon to work on that list, but I think the upgrade will come first.

You mean an extra option to parse that text automatically at the bottom of that thread?
That indeed would be handy, also for us mods who have to add those texts to threads manually. But I am afraid that won't be possible because such option in not part of the settings that vBulletin offers, and there isn't any similar option that can be modified for that use. It might be possible by scripting such thing ourselves, but no one in our team has that skills. I really like your idea, though. :)

Fantastic! :D Thanks Kristjan and Oscar. :hug2:

@Oscar that was an excellent pointer. The spoiler tag is a custom BB code - not a default one. That made me think that your idea might be possible by creating a new custom BB code. And so it is. :D

Go advanced and click the most right icon in the tool bar that says USE TAG.
When you click it, will be parsed into your post. As soon as you submit your post, the message will show up. Feel free to test it in the spoiler test thread. :)

04-27-2011, 16:02:41
I've got an idea, a closed thread with all the posting messages for everybody to copy and paste. I'm thinking along the lines like the login codes for Gotmail and warnings and etc. Because the space is limited in the go advanced for multiple buttons.

Hello, my name is Romina, I live in Argentina, I have played many of their games, they are very good! When I played Skyscraper Room Escape was delighted with the music of that game, I wish to know who plays the music and where I can get over that pretty music from, already thank you very much for your attention!

Hi Rommy, 3 weeks ago I sent a PM (personal message) to GamersHood with a link to your post. He replied to me that he would ask his brother about the music - his brother made the game. I hope you got a reply from him meanwhile. If you haven't please feel free to PM GamersHood (http://www.gamershood.com/forum/member.php?1-GamersHood) yourself. :)
