Thanks for the suggestions :) Just keep in mind that we're not against these ideas, but there are some limitations.

1) We have a shoutbox for the staff to use, but we don't have a standard shoutbox for public use mainly because it's harder to keep spam/rude posts out of.

2) The Karma system would work here, but I don't really know if we have any particular reason why we don't currently have it enabled. I think it would be a good idea, personally, as you could help helpful users by upping their reputation here.

3) Well, since we currently only have one theme with a bunch of different stylesheet capabilities, I don't know if this would work properly. Additionally, the Curve theme is clean, easy to use, and it looks professional, so it functions sufficiently for what this forum is about. Again, we're not totally against these ideas, but it's more of a question of "What would SMFNew and the support forum benefit from doing this?"

4) As much as I like the arcade feature, I'm not sure how many here would actually play it. You can get it on your own forum no problem, so some may be more inclined to play it on their own forums. Granted, there's more people registered for this one, but there are some forums on our service with greater numbers of active players, too. Still, it's not entirely ruled out of the picture.

Anyways, good suggestions!

Arcade I might have it is fun to play! The shoutbox I tend ot avoid for forums since it stops people from posting real topics and history is lost quickly.

I volunteer to help manage the arcade! :P I agree, it is indeed enjoyable, I'm just curious whether or not anyone would actually play it here. Though, honestly, it may be a good way to keep this forum activated, so my vote is in favor of it now that I think about it.
