Quote from: Kaleidoscope on Dec 22, 2018, 10:43 AMWebsite Look and feel - This website while having nostalgic properties is outdated and could use a nice revamp with its layout. I understand that there are little to no competitors so we don't need to try as hard to be the BEST but what does that say about us? I think we should always stay on top of these things to maintain our spot at the top. Plus the visuals here aren't as pleasing on the eye as they once where in 2006.
Quote from: Kaleidoscope on Dec 22, 2018, 10:43 AMHiring new staff - Over the past decade i have seen many people who would play excellent candidates for moderators and content managers. I don't really know who is behind the scenes but i know we still have a happy new year news post from 2016 on the front page....So this is one of two things: yC you either forgot to post a new one for the next year or just didn't care to anymore. (this is not a flame of any sort). I think i have seen maybe 2 active forum moderators who actually labeled. Ive seen benefits from labeling your staff so it directs traffic different suggestions and complaints. Look how RA is set up, they have a hierarchy that works beautifully, everyone is clearly labeled as to what they do and they seem to have a higher rate of productivity.

I think its time to reevaluate the gaps and RE-establish some more suitable range.
Quote from: literalwho on Dec 22, 2018, 01:08 PMThe lack of moderation is not an issue on these boards, not sure why you'd need to squeeze more moderators and staff in here.
Quote from: literalwho on Dec 22, 2018, 01:08 PMLow rates should be knocked down to 1x - 15x or 1x - 20x in all reality, as the majority of the servers pump out EXP boosts and 20x ~ 25x itself already is in no way or form "low" unless you're going for level 99 by smashing porings and porings only. Not to mention that the majority of the 25x servers in the listing are usually higher by boosting overall rates, giving extreme methods of gaining EXP really fast or just flat out give you the extra rates on a new character trough items of some sort.

Quote from: Kaleidoscope on Dec 22, 2018, 10:43 AMUpdating the server rates filter - This is something that is personal to me. Now that ive started developing ive been conflicted with the way the rates are labeled on this website and how limiting it is. So lets look at low rates: 1x - 25x, this is 25 integers ONLY, the range here is very limited seeing as we have surpassed so many different limits from when this was first established. I think its time to reevaluate the gaps and RE-establish some more suitable range.
Quote from: Xarale on Dec 22, 2018, 08:06 PMFirstly, I'll start with this -Whilst I somewhat agree with not fixing what is not broken, I see no reason to close the topic. This is a discussion thread after all and one that does not violate any of our guidelines, so I am not sure why you feel it should be closed.Moving on..Whilst a revamp would be nice for the overall website, I feel that it is fine the way it is. It gets the job done and I would not want to risk things possibly getting broken in a revamp. That is just my opinion though, maybe yC will agree with you~We definitely do not need to hire any more staff. The community sees much less traffic these days than it once did, and as a result there is barely any moderation required these days. If forum activity levels shot up dramatically in the future, then I would agree to this.Regarding the RMS Staff labelling, it is pretty much just myself (head mod) and yC (admin). That is pretty much the entire staff roster. I myself have been a bit busy over the last couple of months so there have been some days where I have not been online, but I am usually sneaking around like a ninja in the background most of the time. ;>I am a little unsure of what you mean here, though that might be because I am super tired right now as I write this! From my own point of view, servers generally fit into our four rate categories with no issues. Could you possibly provide an example of what how you would change it to showcase your point?Cheers, and Happy Holidays!-X.
Quote from: Kaleidoscope on Dec 22, 2018, 10:43 AMJust a reminder this is not flaming or complaining, just making suggestions that i think are very much needed. Snarky comments and defensive macho man crap is not welcome.This is a discussion for veteran RO players and server owners alike.
Quote from: Bue on Dec 22, 2018, 08:55 PMThis makes it look like you actually put some thought into the suggestions instead of thinking up stuff for someone else to do and figure out.
Quote from: Boreas on Dec 28, 2018, 06:30 AMHow about https for the website to get rid of the browser warnings when visiting the front page. https://letsencrypt.org/ is free after all. Thanks.
