Let’s do another “wishlist” thread for possible improvements of our little si-community…

Disclaimer: as this is no democracy, good suggestion will be taken seriously, but will not necessarily be implemented.
The end decision lies with Owei and many things just aren’t possible due to way our forum software is set up.
So this is very much a “wishlist” and not a promise for future changes!!! :-

With that out of the way:
what would do you envision as potential improvements to our little si-community?
%-( ;)

I would like to see more challenges organized :D

I think this might lead to more popularization of si-community, not that it is not popular now :D

A separate gallery with finished work, a la zbrushcentral.

The gallery sounds like a neat idea, and I always like competitions - I think that would definitely bring more members.

The gallery is a neat idea, no doubt, although someone would have to create the necessary adaptation to the forum software (our regular gallery on the top of each page already is a "dirty hack") and someone would have to maintain it... And as it is sometimes hard enough to find pictures for our regular gallery, I'm afraid that will probably not happen...
Competitions, however, are extremely problematic. We tried that once with prizes graciously donated by Eric Mootz and guess what, we got hardly any response. After that traumatic experience I don't think a new competition will happen anytime soon...

Sounds like I'm deliberately sinking any good suggestion, but believe me, that's not the impression I want to give here :-ss ;)

The only other thing I can think of is maybe having a mini-featured portfolio section near the top somewhere that displays an image that will link to someone's portfolio that can be housed on here. It is similar to the Finished Gallery section, but I think it would have a lot less updating that would need to be done - maybe it can rotate every week or something. Also, I think it people might like it because it will help them in promoting themselves which could lead to a potential job.

Hey Hirazi, how about changing a link (url) color on the light theme to something a bit darker? It kinda hurt eyes to look at them with this background. I take it this would be just a simple css mod, nothing too time consuming...


try and deliberately sink this one if you can. :-?

Sorry, don't know nothing about coding so cannot give you a hand for customize a gallery as I suggested...

In any case you can add somewhere a viewcube... :D

@bottleofram - If you can come up with an alternative, that's more pleasing to the eye, while still explicitly highlighting the link (the problem with the original color), this is a request I am more than willing to follow up on. Please provide one or more colors in good old-fashioned RGB values, so we can eventually put it to a vote...
;)

PS - You're right, this isn't a really big modification... Biggest problem in this case is not the modification but to find a color that can "please all"...
