Not one sheet is of the character from Street Fighter. This seems a bit strange to me. Maybe there's some kind of bug in the search? Maybe I'm just an idiot?MySQL's fulltext indexes only work for words above 3 characters by default. I thought I adjusted that for tSR, guess not.

If I had to guess, it looks like some parts are PHP driven and others are solid HTML, seems a tad unusual to me, but then again I'm no professional webdesigner.It's PHP driven, but the site generates static HTML files for pages that don't really change much like indexes to reduce dynamic content.

Now, entering [man] as the same as entering [man*] (or ['man*']), while I expected the results I get when entering ['man']. (which are also incomplete, as none are shown and games like 'Mega Man' should be there =/)Use quotes for "exact matches". You can also use +pluses and -minuses to refine your queries.

(and by an educated guess that $ seems to match with the end of a word) (^ does not seem to do anything, as all matches are always made from the start anyway)Yeah, I suppose. Most people don't really use that kind of operators and the ones who do figure them out by themselves, though.

Thanks for your input.

perhaps a random sprite sheet generator?
^also, you have my support.

A button will be added when the site layout is updated.

Might be useful to get ideas on what one could sprite.

I had an idea to use the click a letter pages to show the top 10 most clicked to games, here is a mock-up.
RE: Suggestions - Koopaul - 08-01-2009 04:11 AM
Say I was wondering if we could make icons for customs sheet sections. I know you said no before however what if we took a screen of MSPaint or something like this?
RE: Suggestions - Ultimecia - 08-01-2009 05:44 AM
Actually this is a nice solution! Good thinking
RE: Suggestions - Koopaul - 08-03-2009 03:58 AM
Yeah but I think we should use something nicer than what I made.
RE: Suggestions - Ultimecia - 08-10-2009 11:34 PM
I'm not sure if it was suggestioned before but... What about compiling a F.A.Q.?
Some questions about the forums (like member titles, how to post images) and general quick reference for submissions maybe?
RE: Suggestions - Dazz - 08-11-2009 08:45 AM
I probably will do at some point
RE: Suggestions - Deathbringer - 08-11-2009 04:05 PM
I have a suggestion however I don't know if you're able to implement it on your forum. Is it possible to implement a new editor mode that shows the coded items as they would appear on the forum, as opposed to just coding, like what we have at S-Inc.?
You know, like this: http://i560.photobucket.com/albums/ss42/The_Deathbringer/sinc.png
Considering how some of us tend to pile stuff into a single post, it would make it easier to find mistakes.
RE: Suggestions - Ngamer01 - 08-11-2009 06:27 PM
What you want is a modified "Preview Post" option like what deviantART has? Is that right?
RE: Suggestions - Deathbringer - 08-11-2009 06:42 PM
I don't use deviantART, so I don't know what you mean.
