Community Spotlight - Community Suggestions

In case you're not up to speed, we're now releasing bi-weekly Community Spotlight Articles, the first of which was released last Sunday.

Thus far, we've included threads that have garnered impressive discussion, some info on the happening in the wiki, a mandatory fan art and fan fiction section, and a section devoted to the Roleplaying forum, as well as name changes, if they happen.

BUT, we can always add more.

This is where you come in, these articles are about you, the user, so it makes sense to give you a say in what they will include.

Simply put, throw down your ideas for these articles, mainly what they should include, but anything else worth mentioning will be taken into account as well.

This thread will be updated with suggestions as they are posted, and will eventually be made into a poll.

To get you started off, we've considered adding a section for blue posts that didn't get any face time, basically a section for Blizzard posts that got away.


Suggestions

1) Blue/Twitter posts that didn't make it into news, but still stand out.
2) Posts that stand out, such as funniest, worst, most informative, ect.
3) Forum changes (such as the PvP, PvM forums)
4) User of the bi-week.
4.5) Possibly a history included for said user.
5) A quick mention of any new users who made an introduction thread, make them feel more welcomed.
6) A summary of what the wiki team is working on, so users can help out, and so you can expect what new articles are on their way.
7) A blog section

    Some ideas-
    How about including things like-
    1. Most well-reasoned(or informative) post(will be hard to beat Don_guillotine on that one- the guy knows too much:P)
    2.Funniest post
    3.Dumbest post(i hope nobody will compete for that one, then I could get some spotlight)
    Seriously tho...will have to find another word for 'dumbest'...to keep things friendly.
    Anyway that will be much more work on ur behalf but more users here could get in the spotlight like that.
    Hope it helps.:)

    Should probably make it aware to the community that you now have a PVP and a PVM sub forum for the Diablo 2 section.
    From it's lack of activity I am guessing
    A) Noone plays Diablo anymore till d3
    B) Noone knows about the sub forums
    C) They are using another site for that activity

    I am gonna go with both A and B. Altho I know for a fact C is thriving.

    D) They play Diablo instead of hanging around in forums :)

    Most well-reasoned(or informative) post


    That would be impossible because what is the correct reasoning is different for everyone. Someone makes a well-reasoned post about why we should have PvP only, but would that have a chance at winning? Obviously no because most players love PvM. You must have the same opinions as most other people to win this one, even if your post makes a lot of sense and is well-reasoned.

    It would be cool with a little information about the mods on this site. I don't know much about them other than their names :P (and that Seth is a hamster)

    Week 1: :hammy:
    Week 2: HARDCOREPOORE (xD)
    Week 3: Reptar
    Week 4: Seth (not Seth)

    :P

    Maybe in the spotlight thread it will cover the history of that user. Maybe overall how that person has effected other or how the user has contributed?
  • #7 Psyxix
    Excuse me but...Reptar?

    Is there a problem? If so, Reptar can solve it rather quickly.

    That's a pretty cool idea I think.

    What gave me the idea was someone's suggestion for putting a "spotlight" on unique posts. It made me think how unique the forum would be if it did something like this that really distinguished the community and those within it. Then I thought, let's distinguish someone specifically every week! I think it would set us apart from other communities don't you? It would make the DiabloFans.com experience that much more personal with a much closer community.

    Gratz for Que-Hegan!

    Perhaps a introduction of the newly joined users (that are active and not one post wonders). It would make them feel more welcome.

    That's a very good idea also. I feel like we have done that before though for some odd reason...Have we? And thank you, I'll congratulate you on yours in a few short posts! :hammy:
  • #15 Ophion
    We have used the introduction forum :)
  • #16 Zhar
    Would be hard to catch all the new users, I'd be willing to mention the users who actually made an introduction thread, though.

    edit: Added to the OP
  • #17 Zhuge
    add whats really happening in the wiki cause barely anyone notices the wiki threads

    what i mean is that on the last assignment phrozen, me and lt. venom ended up doing all the skill pages (180+)
  • #18 Zhar
    Will do mate, I'll probably end up adding that one in anyways even if it doesn't get votes, though. Just seems logical.

    But, will definitely put it into the thread ^^.

    That is what I meant. Just include what they write about themselves and link to their thread.

    I think u got it all wrong there man. u see for a post to be well-reasoned, it doesn't have to actually tally with ur own opinion. In fact, if it doesn't tally with ur opinion and still manages to look well-reasoned and informative to u, it will be more impressive.
