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.

2004-04-23 [druaegon]: O and another thing. MONEY . and if this is a town it should run on more of a town basis.

2004-04-23 [Ocean Dreaming]: games <- all the games you could want.

2004-04-25 [SilverFire]: tried ? that has the money thing you want

2004-04-25 [Elforia]: ooof money is evil! If you think about something that is bad, chances are the bases of it is money. I think the world would be a MUCH better place without it...whatever happened to swapping something for something else?

2004-04-25 [SilverFire]: nah, money isn't evil, it's like the dude from the advert said- 'money can't be evil, it's not alive... if a poud was a chicken, would the chicken be evil?'- the love of money is the thing that could be classed as 'evil' ... so basically... greed is evil.

2004-04-25 [Elforia]: ok money isn't evil, but the use of it can be. Seriously,...think about it...think of one thing that's bad in the world, and I guarantee u money will be the source of it.

2004-04-25 [pegasus1000]: I will agree with that statment.. (you can also look at the good that is done too)

2004-04-25 [Elforia]: that is has done some good.

2004-04-25 [SilverFire]: the fact is, money would be useless and worthless if people didn't want it... sorry... i know the difference is subtle and i'm being pedantic... but you can't really blame inanimate objects such as money for suffreing... it's the fat cats who have the power to do moral good, but choose not to 'cos they want more money that are at fault

2004-04-25 [Calico Tiger]: Well, you know, I'm sure if someone wanted to create flash games or something for Elftown, they'd be more than welcome to do so ^_^

2004-04-25 [Elforia]: like I isn't evil...the use of it does that make sense...v tired

2004-04-26 [SilverFire]: it was the think of one thing that's bad in the world, and I guarantee u money will be the source of it. thing I was refering to :-P

2004-04-26 [Elforia]: ok...ack it's all too complicated. i think we should all live like hobbits and get drunk every night in none liver damaging ways

2004-04-30 [Lylliana]: I have a great game that would be fun I think for people to play. How do I go about getting my game started? If anybody can help me then please let me know. 

2004-05-27 [no name needed]: hi im chenay a new user

2004-06-07 [Amythest Cat]: I think the [The Spirit Mage Crystalwind] has a good idea with the artistic nudity banner contest. I'd love to see what people come up with...

2004-06-07 [pegasus1000]: I agree. That way the visators would not think that the person did something wrong.

2004-06-07 [Nita]: It would be great if the visitors learned to read... ;)

2004-06-08 [The Spirit Mage Crystalwind]: lol, yeah, and I'm not a new user but I should learn to read as well...since I now know that not all red messages are bad. and, as a side note, there IS a banner, although I've never seen it in a house before. (But I still would like to see what banners people would come up with for a contest like that ^_^)

2004-06-08 [Nita]: There is a banner made by [Skydancer], but I think it clashes with the colors of Elftown and makes the comment too big, so I don't really like it...

2004-06-10 [The Spirit Mage Crystalwind]: maybe I could just start a contest...and see if they'll use the winner? *begins plotting and looks around for people in charge...*
