Re: Chat room developments/off topic banter solutions (47 replies, posted in Dialogue)
We're actively developing a fast (AJAX), hosted (BFFC address), sustainable (good) chat "box" for those who might be on at the same time. We would need a lot more traffic to make it more immediate.
If you've seen our message boards, of today and our archive since 2001, the subject of the Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) are pretty hot. Add in a multiplayer video game, and some Fett fans are pretty happy. Just published is the latest tale and DarkHorse.com gives you a preview.
The Mandalorians have captured one of fugitive Padawan Zayne Carrick's faithful companions, which means one thing - a rescue mission deep behind enemy lines! Above the mining world of Vanquo, Republic and Mandalorian starfighters battle, while down on the surface, the motley crew of the Last Resort become stowaways on their own ship, piloted by an unknown thief. Even if they regain control of the ship in time to pursue their friend's abductors, how will they ever make it past the Republic and Mandalorian armadas, both of which want them dead! Forget about the Force, what these four need is some cold, hard luck!

It makes it a popularity contest for the popular members: their topics would be highly rated even if not all that great.
How? One vote per person. There's no group for "popular" members suggesting they vote for themselves and their friends. If it's totally useless, I would agree, but so far, it's an alternative to the moderators "sticking" solid topics.
But someone with a really good topic thats not nearly as popular would be poorly rated, and the rating would inaccuratly show the topics worth.
Again, how? One person can't spike it. It's not like people start out at zero and climb to the top. The threshold right now is just 5.
Not an option. One "or" the other, buddy.
Glad you're not bored, ARC.
Open question for the readers here:
A. user-tagged votes, or
B. anonymous votes
Right now, it's built to show the users and their vote tally, but it can be turned off to just do everything except that. Hurt feelings for low-rank topic fans and who "buried" them? Or tough luck and feedback on what the voters think?
You can now see the average rating, if any (so far) beside the topic when you're looking at the full forum. You can see the "rate topic" beside "post reply" on any of the topic pages.
Expect more subtle changes as more results come in.
As soon as I piece it together. Thanks for voting on the hardest to file collectibles.
Just added a new modification to the board:
The intent for this is to further seek out and promote user-rated content. It is certainly not about an individual popularity contest.
You can now rate any topic in any forum here (one vote per user per topic). As the votes add up across the hundreds of posts here -- rated high or low by you alongside any other member -- we'll add in a better display of the live and ongoing results.
If it's not useful, we may pull it, but I think it's worth a try.
Yes, True, you're right. In 10 years, it's really all about having an "improve ment" with the site logo. There's been no "cool" things here.
It should be clear that here, we're looking a bit beyond the neighborhood of "fan sites," and looking to make a more quality impact since 1996. Thanks for your candid feedback; I wish you added it to the survey when that was up.
Clarity helps. Three confusing parts to your post:
[CUT] ... those who don't have much to say... [CUT] ... applied to all posters ... [CUT] ... could lose me
If they don't have much to say, fine; if nothing to say, not fine.
If they're "posters," they've posted something and this isn't applicable.
If you really understood the issue, it wouldn't be applicable to you.
Sorry if this isn't clear. It's very basic maintenance to have more-legitimate member counts.
Well i was kinda nervous, first i looked on the boards for ages looking at your opinions and then eventually i decided to join .
IG-88, and others, I'm so glad you decided to join for those great reasons! You all are very welcome here.
Oh... I wish people submitted polls to the highly-popular front page of BobaFett.com...
As mentioned above, if these "banners" are for the boards, how do they encompass or reference the Boba Fett community? Think about it. Otherwise, they do indeed look like general site badges, minus the fact that I don't think those images are on the site.
Cecilia, you might be unclear: you just have to post 1 message within the first 60 days, or else it's bumped. At the very least, it encourages an introduction. Non-members can read posts, and we get plenty of guests here.
There is a very large list available at this site, under Manual > Quotes & References. More to come later, like new references you all have listed above, with the launch of Fettipedia.
You can always search (BobaFett.com, Google...) and find pages like this, here:
Ahh. Thanks for checking. All figured out now, the $45 vs. $579.
With all BFFC-arranged links, if you're ready to shop and make a purchase, the company gives an additional percentage as a referral fee to BFFC with specific links. As explained in the "About BFFC" section, it's all re-invested into the site, as should be the case with all Star Wars fan sites.
This just in...
On the MasterReplicas.com site right now, it's reporting this at $45... clearly this is incorrect -- someone call them on it -- as the list price is $579.
If you're considering a purchase -- and I assume most younger collectors will pass -- BFFC is in the Master Replicas affiliate program.
So unfortunate how the rules are always against the good guys.
I risk a ban if I speak my mind about those four.
Actually, that's inaccurate. None of the posted rules are against being "dedicated."
Although he NEVER answers his emails or anything...
...you can just get the hell out of here.
1. This is incorrect. For this -- a 10+ year volunteer project -- I answer important e-mails promptly.
2. Please review the Rules here. The last rule says: "Be respectful of other users." That said, Dealer of Death is perfectly in-line to bring up a just and thoughtful critique.
