General Discussion / A Request, About making Child Boards/Threads
« on: December 03, 2016, 10:18:26 PM »

I've noticed that Lantern's forum lacks organization. This isn't terrible by any means, but it does mean that it's slightly harder to find information about one specific aspect of Lantern, or it's development. Basically, I would like for communications between the us (the players), and those developing the game (mods, AL, etc) to be improved and made easier to maintain. I know this is going to feel like a laundry list, but all of the ideas I'm proposing are centered around adding more Child Threads to better organize the forum.


A Thread for Game Changes and Updates

  • Having a thread specifically for Game Updates and Patches would help directly track features that are implemented, keep users informed, and could also serve as a timeline for when features were implemented into Lantern. I'm suggesting this because the only real form of 'patch notes' Lantern has at the moment is word of mouth, and the occasional progress update by AL.

A Thread Dedicated to Documenting in Game Bugs and Errors

  • No game is perfect, and even in this early state of development, there are bugs and errors in Lantern. Having a thread to centralize these bug reports would help with keeping track of Lantern's current issues from a programming or implementation standpoint, and would ease the pressure of finding errors from those developing Lantern's code.

A Thread for Developer Announcements and Feedback

  • This suggestion purely to keep updates by developers from clogging the 'general discussion' Child Thread, and somewhere where they are easy to access and reply to.


I'm not demanding that anything I'm proposing should be implemented, and I hope this request post doesn't come off as aggressive. I just feel that there is room to improve Lantern's Forum plus not having categories is making my OCD go off.

Introductions / Hello!

As the subject implies, this is my introduction post!

I'd been stalking around the forums for quite a while now, and figured I might as well make an account so that I could contribute to it.

I go by Zipp here. There's no significance in the name, it just sounds nice to me.

So, some things about me:

-I like games and other interactive media
-I also enjoy creating games, though I haven't gotten any projects finished as of now
-I'm (predictably) a fan of this sites genre of expansion, and have been for a while now
-I like to put bullet lists in posts, because it makes organizing what I'd like to say easier

Anyways, I hope I can contribute some useful discussions and answers to the forums!

P.S: This should be the sites 420th topic!
