Has anyone already suggested an online RPG? I never joined RPG's, but maybe it's an idea...?
Next to that, i know forums wich have YAY and NONYAY threads, (like here the say what's on your mind) and places to discuss about news and stuff. Here, we only discuss small things, like pics and stuff, but there is no thread just for the news right? Just some ideas...

Harry Potter is about WIZARDS who go to SCHOOL. Whereas the X-Men are MUTANTS who go to an ACADEMY. In contrast, the little Lord of the Thingy dudes are totally unschooled. A bunch of dropouts. All they do is run around in the woods, singing songs and eating special bread.

I think the news is reported on the main site. To report the same news here in a specialized section would just serve to repeat what is already being posted at the A&F site. Also, alot of news regarding Elijah is discussed in the Elijah forum anyway. If you mean news as in Current Affairs, then there is always the Misc section which is open to that type of discussion.
As for RPG's, I am not sure how much interest there would be for that here, but it's a good suggestion, it would certainly be worth polling the members to see who would participate.

We did have a Harry Potter RPG and that has kind of died.  The problem with RPGs is that they tend to die after a span of about three months.  So it would probably just clutter the board, having all these new RPGs, and none of them would ever get finished.  I've been a member of a few RPGs and really, that's what happens 90% of the time.  If the mods still want to do it, that's fine, but I don't think it's necessarily a good idea.

Eh.

I've watched in some livejournals a sort of contest where people suggest a theme and others have to make icons or banners connected with that theme. Someone could organize it to promote the art section. The voting could either be by all members or by a comission of judges.
I don't know if it's a good idea, but I really like making icons and such.

We've done that before, at least seven times since the summer.  The problem is that right now a lot of people are in school so it's hard to organise such a thing and have everyone participate.  I think it'd be a good idea to start it up again in January, but December, to me, seems like all too busy a month.

I have to agree with Curio on this one. December is a hectic month, but starting up the challenges again certainly seems like a good idea for the New Year. Having some sort of order of challenges might be an idea too, like rotate them. Have a blend challenge, then an add effects challenge, then a colourization challenge, then an icon challenge. That way we can cover the various talents and specialized preferences of the artists we have in the Fan Art section.

You know what I'd be more satisfied with on this board? More skins and more smilies. I'm getting bored with the selections.
Maybe we could have a SKIN contest, and the best three get to be new choices on people's profiles!! And along with the banner, you have to enter the other things that apply like the backround color and stuff. I think that's a good idea.
There needs to be a laughing smilie and an evil smilie face. That would be cool.

I am not sure we really need any more smilies. The ones we have convery just about enough emotions. Some more skins maybe, but right now I think our main concern is making sure the forum runs smoothly, that it's been cleaned and tidied of all dead threads. That each forum contains what it's supposed to contain etc.

A skin contest such as the one we had last year may indeed be something we consider for later in the year.

<-- I think that is evil enough, and as for laughing  <-- that about sums it up. We don't need too many smilies, it's just more clutter. say what you want to say with words, it works much better. Or if you want them that badly, look for some for your own personal use. Upload them to photobucket or whatever and link them from there.

Of course you can do that, just like you link an image, you can link a smily.

This is the only link I know of, I don't use smilies so much.

I really wish that you didn't need 10,000 posts in order to get a custom name. On other forums you can get a custom name as soon as you register. I kinda bugs me.

You don't need 10,000 posts to get a custom title, you need 1500. 

Until you reach 1500 posts, your position is automatically something like Elijah Obsessed, or whatever.  When you get to 1500, it's replaced by an asterisk.  I don't think the custom title option even exists until you have 1500 posts (though the position field does), and I wouldn't know how to change it.  I don't really see a point, anyway, because you still have an "Elijah" position up until that point, and you can write under your avatar.

Why not.... Have some sort of monthly or seasonal compeition since I read someone's post about the the difficulty such as lack of partipication due to busy month out IRL(in real life).

At least, its an idea for something more orderly. Having too many compeitions of diffrent things at once can be confusing and fustrating. I didnt read the whole thread so I dont know if you guys had thought of doing one or two compeitions for the entire A&F board. At least, fewer compeition will raise entries numbers than having twenty compeitions or more at once.

We can have polls every months on what kind of compeitons we want for the next month.

Anyway, enough of my rambling. What do you think?
