    oh really.. ok i will look into it.

    It doesn’t remember who rated, or track individuals rating – this is because non registered users can also rate – there would excessive data if we tracked all users ratings on the off chance they want to change their rating.

    Well currently non-registered user cannot rate, just tried it. Also you are actually tracking if user has voted or not, since I can’t rate twice. And that is stored server side, because I tried another browser and I still couldn’t rate twice. And it doesn’t matter if you wouldn’t you can just do it like this:

    averageRating -= averageRating / amountOfRatings
    averageRating += newRating / amountOfRatings

    Tracking user rating might not even need any more data than storing only if he has voted. At least in MySQL 5.0.3 Boolean is stored in tinyint which takes up one byte instead of one bit.

    hmm maybe if i remove the restriction of voting once it might be possible, just want to avoid any methods that might allow someone to vote multiple times. I’ll look into it after the important stuff is done (comments)

    Something that I think the site is missing is the ability to be able to contact the mod creators so if there is something wrong with a mod or it has something that can be improved, users should be able to send them an email or message via the site. Thats just something i thought would be handy.

    It would be very helpful if the “New” button not only shows the new topics but also it should show the new posts in the specific topics so you can see which posts are new.

    Im not sure this is going to be possible, i have a feeling it would really slow down the site/forums too.

    Maybe having a separate page for “unseen messages” would make it better.
    But to be honest, that would be far more “excessive data” than storing all ratings. Storing data for one million ratings would probably take like 10MB which is not much anyway.

    Suggestion: an alerts system that handles notifications if someone replies to a user. Could be placed in the top right corner next to the user’s profile pic?

     

    (sorry if this has already been suggested)

    I was running a little upgrade script so you might have tried at bad time. Is it all ok now?

    There’s the “new” notification in help category, but when I open the category there’s no threads with the new notification.

    Few ideas:
    Make an area where you can drop file for the mod.
    Fix the mod file upload. I uploaded zip folder, but the server zips the zip file another time for some reason. When I go to edit the mod it says that there are 2 zip files, but when I download I only get one. I’m not sure if the idea was that you wouldn’t have to zip your mod yourself, but if it was the idea wasn’t too great, and I can’t actually upload bin files even though the page says that I can.

    The system we use rezips the files uploaded with the title given. this is to prevent strange file names(symbols etc) from breaking the download link. There are some know issues with the uploader that i am currently looking at. Thanks for your feedback again 🙂
