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.

2004-09-14 [Ocean Dreaming]: Colouring = manipulation. The coat in your image is therefore not allowed and was removed. I'm sorry, but you can't have the photo up if it has that copyrighted piece of material.

2004-09-14 [another brick in the wall]: fine, I'll just have to go with plan C

2004-10-22 [*ILKD*]: music

2004-11-12 [Aidan Ryuko]: how about a name search, I don't mean members, i mean words, for example if you are an ice cream lover and you want to know what's out there, members written ice cream on their pages, wikis with ice cream, kind of the same thing as on elfwood.. look for a certain item and you get tons, some you can use, some you can't.. I for one would be glad to find more people who like onegai teacher wich would it much easier if i had the posibility

2004-11-12 [Aidan Ryuko]: oh and a little suggestion, put the advanced help link on the bottom of the help page?

2004-11-12 [Nita]: Well, you could search for "ice cream" in their description... :)

2004-11-12 [Aidan Ryuko]: o.O I didn't even see that!! *hits himself* yay now I can look for ice cream :D thankies^^ even though its not a full search im fully satisfied:)

2004-11-13 [another brick in the wall]: um, I was thinking that the shirts that your going to be selling should be white and maybe come with like a sharpie or just a somthing so that the Elftowners that buy the shirt could write the usernames on the back or something

2004-11-14 [Aidan Ryuko]: hehe:D a guy with hotboy984521 on the back^^

2004-11-14 [another brick in the wall]: I'm not joking, I want to remember absolutly all 647 people I talked to on this wonderful place and I can't stay forever, infact I have to leave very soon beause the stupid people jacked the prices for the internet and my mom can't aford it so she's taking it away, and I don't care if the names are all cus words, I want to rember them and show te world that I once knew them all. how in the world am I going to fit 647 names on a shirt? God find a way to fit them all

2004-11-14 [Aidan Ryuko]: mmhmm it could be pretty cool:) allthough you might risk getting arrested in some countries hehe:) it might help to just print out the names and put them in your room^^

2004-11-14 [another brick in the wall]: but that's not the same as having them on a shirt. like I said, I want to show the world that I'm proud to have known these people. and if I have to leave Elftown before you start selling the shirts, would you guys sew me if I iornpressed my own Elftown shirt?

2004-11-14 [Aidan Ryuko]: I wish you good luck getting all the names up:) pretty neat to see a shirt with all those names^^ (and frustrating if you come 3 places short)

2004-11-16 [Aidan Ryuko]: I don't know if you have it yet but it would be rather handy if you could click the name to see the messages you send to that person, for instance if you send a note to a translator you dont know and you want to find it back after 3 days it would be much easier if you could just click or type his name to see all messages you send him/her.. (can't find the message back I send someone *blushes*)

2004-11-19 [Nita]: You can search for messages on your pages for received and sent messages :)

2004-11-19 [Aidan Ryuko]: thanks:) this site is so handy i didn't even figure out half of it's uses!!

2005-01-15 [Flinfor]: Something like the way the bioware forums work would be a lot easier to use

2005-01-15 [Nita]: Not really... What can be easier to use than single button navigation we have here? :)

2005-03-23 [Pedito]: Would it be possible at all if we start a instant messanger system going on elftown? Gets tiring after reading message by message

2005-03-24 [Nita]: I don't think we have that much spare server-time. Why don't you use one of the existing instant messaging systems intsead? :)

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.
