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.

2003-12-22 [Elforia]: oh I seeeeeeeeeeee. no it's just someone I know tried to delete herself and when she found she couldn't got really really annoyed. I found it funny myself it's just a little weird for people who mean it

2004-01-26 [Nita]: Umm... Isn't the "Roll Dice" thing implemented now?

2004-01-26 [MathiasIV]: Er, havent heard anything about it.

2004-01-26 [MathiasIV]: Wiki Search engine 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.[TheRogue] / Comment from [peura]: What if the page owner doesn't want random people to find the wiki? / [MathiasIV] Perhaps an option could be selected by the owner to make the page unavailable by random searches like that. Much like the other button options that page owners have.

2004-01-26 [Nita]: Huh?

2004-01-26 [MathiasIV]: Thats what I edited :P

2004-01-26 [Nita]: D20 is the dice and 13 is the number ;)

2004-01-26 [MathiasIV]: Oh! thats the dice roller? I thought it would put it in the text if you typed like <roll:20> or something

2004-01-26 [Nita]: Yup, that's our dice... :)

2004-01-26 [MathiasIV]: Nice :) I never woulda known that. Hey I rolled a 13... Good thing I aint superstitious ^_^

2004-01-26 [spiritee]: ey..i dunt get the dice thing..

2004-01-26 [MathiasIV]: every time you edit a page it rolls 20 sided dice and displays the results in that little white box that talks about the previous editor and version

2004-01-27 [spiritee]: ohhh....

2004-02-01 [Shining light]: why?

2004-02-01 [MathiasIV]: If you are a traditional RPer then it takes the place of rolling the dice. Can be taken into consideration when trying to hit something or perform a skill or determining an outcome or or or or LOTS of stuff ^_^

2004-02-26 [creepydog]: If you don't mind making the font a little smaller?It makes the pages go on forever.

2004-02-27 [Nita]: You can change the font size in your personal data form :)

2004-03-02 [Prettygal]: Hey, elftown is cool but can you put a few pages of some groovy elfen folk

2004-03-03 [Calico Tiger]: Try checking out the wiki pages, Prettygal. I'm sure you'll find several elven type pages in there ^_^

2004-03-23 [Thorgin]: Hello. I just wondered what to do to have your Mood icons considered for a possible place in the Elftown Mood icons(The ones available to everyone).
