Rock & Metal Forum: Report Problems/Ask Questions/Make Suggestions

So, a new thread.

This thread pertains exclusively to the forums of SputnikMusic.com, more specifically the Rock & Metal forum of which you are currently presiding within.

Any or all issues relating to the SputnikMusic.com review site are to be directed to either of its relevant threads.

Issues with reviews are to be posted in this thread:

While issues relating to bugs and larger issues within the review site are to be posted here:
http://www.sputnikmusic.com/forums/showthread.php?t=570256

Again, this thread is exclusively relating to the Rock & Metal forums

If you feel that a thread should be closed or a user should be penalised, please make a post in this thread. Most of you know the procedure.

If you have questions about why a thread was closed, how stuff works or anything else that troubles your mind, go ahead and ask here.

A thread should be stickied? Have a good idea to help the forum? Make your suggestions here.

Me, Cocaine, pate, Permanent Solution or Wish will take care of it as soon as we can.

Important

"Off-topic posting" ITT = any post that doesn't report a problem, ask a question (or answer a question, if no moderators are present), or make a suggestion to better R&M will be deleted and eventually result in a ban if constantly ignored. This means that any chatter, sidebar conversations, or general BS will be construed as "off-topic posting," so please don't do it.

I'll add it to the thread index, if you guys can report any links that aren't in there but should be that would be much appreciated.

Regarding the search tool, it is incredibly inefficient and every second time I search for something it fails. So I would just use it as a "maybe" last resort after checking the thread index, maybe back a page or two, or even utilising google with the name of the thread and the website url if we can remember it in brackets (say the search entry, "melo-death" sputnikmusic.com/forums).

If a thread has been well buried in the past and nobody can easily find it I won't hold it against you if a new thread is made.

It would be nice, as just about every forum I have ever posted on other than this one has had 150x150px avatar size limits at a bare minimum.

I believe Jeremy has some bandwidth concerns however, which is why we don't have a PM system either. It is his call whether to raise the limit or not.

I don't post in any other forums but I have seen a bunch like you said with 150X150 size limit, which is nice.

And Jeremy doesn't really care about the forums tbh so it'll probably never change

I'd rather have urls automatically show up as urls again instead of having to manually write the tags in

like, why did that even get taken away

It's partly to do with bandwidth, partly to do with who cares? Jeremy is a pretty busy guy and he does still poke his head about, he just doesn't come into casual chats so people can bicker to him about god knows what.

Well, initially, it was stripped when we had all of the coded links leading to hacking, a few years ago, when Chad kind of went nuts on us. So it was taken away along with hidden links. I'm not really sure why it hasn't been reinstated though.

I know not to what limits thy great powers extend, mighty moderators, but I humbly ask thee: hear my plea. If such a feat is within thy capability, could thou merge into one, my old account (Ceminon) and this one?
