    Default Trackmill revolution - a community project

    hello freinds, id just like to start off saying that us at TrackMill appreciate all of your support throughout the time this site has been around.

    now as many of you know, TrackMill is slightly falling behind on a more modern site. now as the admins are very busy trying to improve the site as much as they can, but the most important factor is what YOU users want to see in this site, as for its because of you that we're still around today.

    THIS THREAD will be the main thread of you users prioritizing what needs to be done for TrackMill to be great again. what do we need to do to improve the forum or to the games to be better for the users?

    I want EVERY member to be apart of this. if you know someone here that isn't active here, try to tell them too, because its a community project for a reason. its up to you all to share your opinion. please express every idea you have to improve this site. make sure to discuss it as much detail as possible. i also encourage other members to expand on others ideas. just speak your mind, and us staff will be here to listen.

    for this to fully work, if you guys find an idea that was suggested and you strongly agree with it, quote the idea and this will show me how popular the idea is. the more popular the idea, the higher priority it will be to have.

    if you have any questions, ask them here. now please, start the discussion, and hold nothing back. cheers

    (reserve post for the ideas so far)

    forum integration
    -give an option for members one the game pages to "edit profile" making them come to the forum and get involved. (3 supporters)
    maybe add a profile feature to the game pages that show an avatar, and user details. (like old fr2db) it would be on the game page, but managed through the forum.
    -advertise the support area on all game pages.
    -add forum activity sidebar to hope page + specific game homepages


    new home page
    -grid display showing all games trackmill has to offer.
    -glorify and advertise forums.
    -monthly featured member? (interview + favorite game)
    -resume custom banner making

    monthly game contests
    -have a contest for using a new game every month

    Hmm
    More moods, definitely.
    More forum-site integration (which is happening with the new design I believe)
    More facebook/twitter/social integration.
    Better forum design. The forum needs a new skin too.
    Keep this forum up to date, I've noticed as I was going to make an "event" I couldn't because it would only go up to 2011.
    Which way is TrackMill/Trackmill spelled? I've seen it spelled different ways on here (mainly in forum section descriptions) and imo it looks messy.

    (I'll update this post with more suggestions)

    This is a great idea!
    Even tho I don't have any ideas atm as I think tm is good how it is, I know a lot of other members have a lot of ideas. I'm pretty sure the pinguinS has spme ideas.

    more mods? i dont think this is needed, we dont have enough members for more mods. (reminds me of the expression "too many chiefs, not enough Indians")

    site-integration, an idea ive always supported. want to expand on where/how?

    and also, no need to edit post mate. just keep posting ideas, dont worry about post count problems here. its for the greater good.

    Well he either means moderators, or he means like emoticons or those banner things.

    We need things to be done, like when you say something to be done by that date, it gets done by then.

    Definitely more forum site integration, more than half the good fr2/coloraze/other game makers on the database don't even know about the forums. I think that on the fr2/other games database it should say like "Edit Profile" or "Edit Forum Profile". (but put it in the top right corner with the rest of the managing stuff).

    EDIT: and when I mean keep the forum up to date, a lot of things aren't up to date, on the main TM homepage, all of the featured tracks are old ones, there needs to be newer ones. And like I said about the event thing, and also, when I go to put my "Fav TM Game" or whatever thing. (in the options sections) I don't see DSG or FNR.

    haha yes, opps i must have read that wrong.

    and im not to sure about that idea. if we had set dates for things to be added, they may be rushed and not work properly/to their full performance. however, i do agree that things take a very long time to be released.

    so im thinking about asking goose to put a link to this thread on the fr2 main page to see if members there want to get involved in this. good or bad idea?

    Also I think the other games should be promoted more. Coloraze has 4,000 levels, SSS has like 3,000, iZZi has like 2,000. FR2 has over 1,700,000 levels... Theres a huge difference, haha. I don't really know how to promote them more, but I think they should be promoted wayyy more. Because they're just as good as FR2.

    im thinking maybe a new home screen? (fully illustrating all the games) maybe put all the games in like a grid display, and give each game a feature track section on their own home page (if that makes sense)
