This page is a complement for the Elftown, Suggestions forum.

How to make a suggestion:

Step one: Read through this page and the elftown_factory to see if it has already been suggested. If it has, you don't have to suggest it again.

Step two: Always post your suggestion in the Elftown, Suggestions forum <forum:Elftown, Suggestions> (except for suggestions for new fantasy races, those you write here directly). Keep it short and specific, don't ramble about how you are a newbie and very sorry if you are doing something wrong. That way, you may even get a response from Mayor [Hedda] :-)

Step Three: Write down your suggestion on the new suggestions page, so that others can see that it has been suggested. Again, keep it short and specific.

If you get feedback on your suggestion, for example if it gets rejected or implemented, you should come back and edit your suggestion and move it to the appropriate page.

Serious suggestions only, please!


New fantasy races

There have been many requests for new "fantasy race personalities". This page was getting full of them, so they have been moved to a new page: race suggestions. Go there if you want to suggest more races.



Is your language missing from the list of choosable languages in Your House? Add it to the languages page!


Competition Ideas

Suggestions for competitions that could be officially held can be added to the Elftown Competition Ideas.

-To view old and rejected suggestsions, see old or rejected suggestions


Implemented suggestions

Old suggestions that now are implemented are moved here.

Elftown Clock
I think it would be a good idea to have a clock on the main page, it could be decided by the higher beings of elftown to decide what time the clock goes by, but then people from other sides of the world can decide to meet on 'Elftown Time" which could simplfliy things for people, if this is possible that it.
Update: Hedda has done some of his magic again! There is now a clock on main street.

Elftown Academy
Place where someone like me could learn for example Quenya, or whatever it was, or other foreign languages, "History" of fantasy races, drawing etc.
Comment from [peura]: I think the Wiki would be an excellent place for that, so that everyone can help with adding to the knowledge. There is already a "artistic tips" section on the wiki, btw.
Update: There now is an Elftown Academy wiki page.

Diary improvement?
Diaries- Should we make private diaries that only that person has the choice to write in or view?
Update: This is now possible. You can set diary entries to be private, viewable by only your friends, or viewable by anyone.

Go To Wiki-Page
The go to wiki button currently only appears in the wiki itself, but it would be very convenient for people who spend a lot of time in the wiki or who have wiki-pages themselves to be able to use it from their house. Maybe a permanent "go to wiki-page" button beside the "enter username" and "mood" slots?
Update: Found below the Online Friends.

Private polls/diary visitors log?
Something so you can see what people have been voting in your polls and visiting your diary.
Update: You can make wiki-polls that allow you to keep track of voters using the <voting> tag.

"Roll Dice" when Editing
If it were possible to create some kind of engine that randomly chooses a number when you write a post, then we could enhance our Text Adventures and bring them even closer to traditional roleplaying, by using these numbers as the Dice. To explain better, someone edits a Wikipage, they need to roll a dice to see if their attack connects, how much damage they take, et cetera. THey hit "Edit this Wiki Page, they make their changes, and then they have the choice of hitting "Submit" and "Roll Dice." Hitting the Roll Dice button gives them a random number, and submits their changes. So even if they don't like their number, the only way they could cheat is if they deleted their post and wrote it again. Too specific? I know nothing about programming, but it would be great...
Update: We've had the D20 dice for a while, so this is being moved to done. See the wiki-page info box to view the generated number, after editing.

Wiki search
-Wikis should be sorted into sections of type, content, etc. That way you could search for wikis based on your interests, etc.
-Enable an Elftowner to be able to use key words to search for all Wiki's that have that word in them, so they can find unlisted Wiki's they might have stumbled on previously and cannot find.
Update: You can now search for wiki-pages by keywords, if there are keywords entered into the keyword box found on the wiki-edit page.

If we could get a page going for this, it would be nice. We could give tips on drawings certain objects, or say, faces, and hands, tips on painting your drawngs, tips for writing, and more.
Update: See official wiki Elftown Tutorials.

Images as links
Being able to make a wikibanner a clickable link that leads to that wiki.
Update: Now possible with the 'wikiimg'-tag.

"Private" wikis
See cnetg9 on Locking Wikis/Creating Private Wikis.

2005-03-24 [Pedito]: because I'm usaully only avaible to get online at school. Some convos would go faster this way. Plus there are methods of getting around that. I could ask my cousin because he designs forum like these and he has instant message capabilities like these. I't basically a chat line with forums that you can look at. and it tells you who your talking to.

2005-05-06 [The Spirit Mage Crystalwind]: a while ago I suggested having a banner to put up at houses containing new art instead of the standard red-text message by the guards. The results are now in at the Nude Banner Contest, so I was just wondering if any (or all) of these banners could be used.

2005-12-02 [NiceGuy213]: How about we have a Jester positon? If someone needs a laugh, they could go to one of these people, and they could try to get one of those well needed laughs.

2005-12-31 [Draugur dauĂ°ans]: Perhapse Elftown should also selebrate the Pagan Selebrations? you have enough Wiccan's/Pagans here.

2006-01-03 [iippo]: We are actually in the thinking of letting people feature their festive dates in the calendar. And I'm very glad of this comment because you're showing that people do want it.

2006-01-03 [iippo]: And [NiceGuy213], there is Jokers of Elftown. It's not official, but it's fun.

2006-04-08 [1a2b3c]: It would be nice if under each "online friend" there was a message field to send quick messages.

2006-04-09 [NiceGuy213]: Yeah, like a messenger service.

2006-04-09 [NiceGuy213]: that way, any of your buddies online can message you whenever your on, not just on here.

2006-04-09 [iippo]: Eh, I understood what [1a2b3c] meant (can send a message to an online-friend without having to go through their house to the message-box), but not [NiceGuy213]... You want to send ET-messages without actually being logged on? O_o

2006-04-09 [1a2b3c]: yup, thats what i meant, sending a message wihtout going through their house

2006-04-09 [NiceGuy213]: Like AIM or MSN, any of your friends here, you have in the messenger too.

2006-04-09 [1a2b3c]: no, i meant what [iippo] said.

2006-04-09 [iippo]: You have different suggestions. Either way, the best place to suggest is actually the forum <forum:Elftown, Suggestions>, because the mayor and the other tech-people are more active there... From my incredibly limited knowledge of the interet, I'd say connecting ET-onlineness with MSN-onlineness is a bit impossible. I mean... MSN doesn't even show online when you're actually logged in to a passport site like Hotmail... You need the downloaded program. :/ But, suggest in the forum.

2006-04-22 [another brick in the wall]: we should have Elftown Grocery stores. Do you know how Friggin cool it would be, to go some place and have it say like "$40 per pound of cabbage", and then you type in a space, how much cabbage you want, and then click a "buy" button, frig YES! and it wont matter if you have the money or not, you just buy stuff.

2006-04-22 [iippo]: But you wouldn't get stuff either. o.O So you'd be paying for imaginary grocery with imaginary money... Kind of like a roleplay. See if Elftown Open Marketplace is anything like what you imagined...

2006-07-09 [Beo-Wulf]:
Cutest Couple
I think that there should be a Cutest Couple Award
Because there is one for Elfpack

2006-10-17 [Sylvia Rote]: I was just wondering if maybe we should do a little more censoring on the ~coughs~ expose, of some of the underage members on the photos in their house? I see so many houses that have young girls in lewd sexual positions or barely in anything, and it just puts out a poor image for the rest of the town. It wouldn't be so bad if they had it in a wiki, or if they had at least artistic photographs.

2006-10-17 [iippo]: From the uploading art rules:
G-3. Pornographic images and images depicting extreme violence are not allowed in your house. Almost nude and nude images of minors and pictures of self mutilation are not allowed anywhere on Elftown.
Non-pornographic nudity is allowed provided no minors are involved. Elftown is a site for all ages, so keep it tasteful. You can request Artistic Nudity Warnings if you want to post nudity in your house.
Note: "Nudity" is defined as displayed genitals or a female breast where you can see the nipple. Extremely sexually suggestive looking photos are also considered "nude" even if there is no actual nudity shown in the image. So no showing of breasts before you're 18 in the photo!
Note 2: The "nudity of minor"-rule is demanded by (a pretty badly defined Swedish) law, and it doesn't matter if Elftown thinks the image is "harmless" or "artistic".

So when you see such imagery, report the member to the guards.

2006-10-17 [Sylvia Rote]: all righty!! I just neversaw it in any of the catagories for the reporting section. now i know, and thank you.

2008-11-23 [losthero]: On a side note... Has there ever been thought of a preview ability when changing personal house data to where those that are not HTML inclined can see what they are doing?
