Forums: Patagate > Forum To-Do List

As a few people know, I have been restyling Patapedia's forums. The forums are functional but they are also incomplete. The active thread icon and the stickied thread icon need to be changed. The following suggestions for the icons have been made:

  • Hero Masks
  • Juices

The colours of the tables could also be changed. If you have any other suggestions regarding the icons or any other style-related suggestions for the forums, feel free to leave a comment.

I also plan on making a set of rules or guidelines for the forums. These guidelines would demonstrate the purpose of the forums and how to use them. Blogs and forums are two different things and the purpose of the article determines. Here are a few things which will be found in the guidelines:

  • The use of stickies
  • Forum Archiving
  • Forum vs Blog: What the forums should be used for and they shouldn't be used for
  • Forum Categories (types)
  • The Use of Polls in Proposals
  • the 180px-Support.jpg Support, 180px-Oppose.jpg Oppose, Neutral Neutral and 626 Comment templates
  • Consensus vs Majority
  • Indenting(:) and signing

This is an incomplete list. If you believe any critical topic has been omitted, please leave a comment below. All suggestions are welcome!

Some good ones: Pictures, categories and opinions. 21:50, June 28, 2012 (UTC)
Suggestion- Hmm... Would an Edit Intro be useful (see my talk page and click edit for an example]])? It could list some of the guidelines (or all of them). -- 00:35, July 1, 2012 (UTC)

Update- Possible Active Thread icons: Forum-stickyForum-active

Rah had suggested masks. I unperfectly cropped these examples of HOT masks. What do you think of these? -- 19:59, July 4, 2012 (UTC)

Update- Back to this project. The icons will soon be ready. -- 13:56, July 22, 2012 (UTC)
