I'll say it again....A Preview button for Commenting,an emoticon tool box, and the typical Bold, Underline, Italic selection. It's just easier and faster to do than having to remember the actual keys/codes. And Hell, I only know 2 or 3 emoticon codes ;p

If I could add one thing to the site it would be a PM system.

You could try putting the official bbcode site on your favorites bar, and just look at that every time you need help.
Here's a link http://bbcode.org/

As for a recommendation, how about something in the chatroom that shows the names of the users inside it? (users that have a webpage open to it)

No, that would ruin the fun of lurking.

That's the point. No, more, lurking.
(Of course, the administrators and moderators would still be able to watch without others knowing they are there. One of their jobs IS [I believe] to make sure the forums and chat are under control)

I have a new suggestion, how about an elevator-music button for the chatroom? It could play 50's show tunes when pressed.

It's taken forever and there still isn't personal messaging, reader reviews.. or anything for that matter.

Asking for music in the background would be like asking NASA to colonize a new planet.. tomorrow.

It's more like asking NASA to take over the world, cure poverty, destroy Russia with a laser, mutate a normal man into a superhero, build the Enterprise, fly it to Jupiter and create a new life form to live on the planet and make it back home for a 2:30 nap... Okay, that's a pretty big exaggeration, but you know what I mean.

That "coming soon" sign on the :games collection" part of the user profiles has been up for 2 years. And user reviews were supposed to be up by the end of summer of 2009. I know I sound really whiny, but the site has only gotten 1 major improvement for as long as I can remember which is Chat and that's still in Beta. I think I'll just nag the admins to death until they update the site.

Oh you don't have to tell me brother

The site is nearly identical as to how it was when it launched.

Enjoy the afterlife then, dude.

For me personally it's disheartening to hear you say there's been no improvement to the site since we launched - sure, in terms of technical features we haven't launched much, but the quality and frequency of content is far better than it ever has been, which is important too, y'know?

Anthony has been working on Kinectaku and Movemodo a lot, but he's promised a facelift and some new features for Nintendo Life soon. Give the guy a break. He's basically designing and updating all three sites by himself.

Plain old gamer :)

No, I'm talking about improvements in terms of new features. There's a lot more articles every day than there used to be and the coverage on wiiware and dsiware is top notch. I just don't think that the site can really be called complete until new stuff is implemented

I'm happier with content-complete rather than feature-complete, personally. But then I would say that 'cos I write most of it

I look at the things in Kinactaku (haven't been on Movemodo enough to comment) and see some pretty nice features. There lots of things that have been asked for for a long time which have been implemented. I certainly miss the smiley dudes from this site though (), but you can tell that someone has been hard at work on these sites. In time, they will come, but they take a long time to test and test and test make a couple changes, then test some more lol
You have to make sure everything works for each browser and there is simply just a lot of work, blah blah...Once the features have been successful on those sites, it should be easier to bring them over. However, I don't know how similar the two forums are, so cannot say for sure. I know very little about web development.

Oh, and that being said, I rather enjoy the simplicity of it all and love the amount of content being pumped out by the staff as well as on the forums.

i like poll threads. like with the thread which color 3ds do you want, you get a nice pretty graph with people's answers instead of dozens of pages of people saying black.

I also think it's cool that when you post a comment on an article you see the flag of the user's home country. I think it would be cool to have that flag under the avatars in forums as well.

that's just little stuff though, I really like how the site looks.
