There’s a few things that I’d like to suggest get changed or added to the forum. I may update these as they come to mind:
Changing link color or adding an underline.
Currently links look identical to normal text, so it is impossible to tell if it’s a link unless it is a URL. For example, can you tell which word in the last sentence is a link?
Adding a link to the main ground(ctrl) profiles from the forum profile.
Because the main site profile URLs are not linked to the username and can be decided separately, it gets hard to find someone to add them as a friend or message them from the forums. For example Stefan Spelman’s (just a random user I chose) main site profile is http://linkinpark.com/users/T6GW6sIt , but on the forums it is http://forum.linkinpark.com/users/stefan_spelman .
Stating whether or not a user is an LPU member or not.
Now that the forums are open to non-LPU members, it would be nice to know if a member on the forum is part of the LPU or not, because they can only access some categories.
Remove “Private Message @username” from report menu.
Because private messages are disabled on the forum (most likely to keep it on the main site), selecting this comes up with an error.
Disabling the 20 character requirement for posts.
There are a few forum games that involve just posting a word or two to participate, so needing to type 20 characters when all that needs to be said is “Oreo” is annoying.
Moving the “Back to Linkin Park” link.
This one is just a visual suggestion and not very important. It’d be nice if the link was in the main navigation bar, as a home button or something, it just looks weird where it is. Also needing to scroll to the top of the page is a bit annoying at times. Also doesn’t show correctly on mobile pages.
