- should there be a forum section an registered can only after he posted a certain amount of entries? So let's say: after 10 postings he gets access to a special subforum. If yes - after how many postings, how should we call that section and what should be in there?


It would be a good measure against spammers, seems to me...
Maybe the section where new users will have to post their first 10 messages will be a special subforum where people meet each other, introduce themselves?.. Like "Who am I" now...

- how shall we call the member level in the future and after how many postings they should be reached?


I am satisfied with what we have, except for one thing - after Forenlichtgestalt there is no place for carreer growth left :lol: We could add several more ranks, as was already proposed by Lux.

Also I put my votes for:

pms back + expand
- of course!!
merging sections - seems handy, because some subforums are uses too rarely in comparison with others
merging the two forums - I am for, so that English and German parts are not divided. Because so far German half of the forum looks too silent :( Let us be all together! And dear German speakers still can write in German, naturally.
Create lacriwelt part - this would be useful, I think. Because I was asked by different new users to explain more about Ministers and LacriWelt not only one time. I gladly do that each time, but if we have all the topics like Constitution, Minister Meeting in one subforum it will be so much easier for newbees to learn all this stuff!
birthday on front page - yeah!
introduction part for new users - I'm for
limit access to amount of posts - I'm for
name lacriwelt of the forum - yes!!! :D

and about avatars... yeah, I'm used to not so small ones... It would kinda change the impression from the forum if we have really small avatars imho.
Limiting the size is necessary, obviously, because people sometimes use biiiiig ones... but... to what extent?.. Tech part is Matze's business of course, it's just my view of things

@ Kitty: I think it´s a very good idea. But I don´t understand not all thinks that all the people here have written  in the Forum which will be new here. Can you send it in the German Part of the Forum? I`m sorry for my questions and for my hard words because I was a bit angry.  :) I´m happy that the German language will be not forbitten here.  :)
Grüße aus der Unterwelt.

Yes, of course :) I'll be right back with a German entry for these votings :) And don't feel sorry for your questions ;) am willing to answer them any time! and I understand of course you were upset with the thought that German would be excluded but as Matze said that's not an option :) so don't worry ;)

As soon as I had the time to read all the posts and ideas well I just can say that I agree on:
pms back
birthday on front page
chat on front page
introduction part for new users
limit avatars and signatures
announcements only read
merging fanclub/fanpages

the rest is not that I don't agree well  in fact I can agree with all ideas so far but I consider these ones more important, and thanks for giving us this chance.

What if there will be no separate German-part in the new forum?

As a germanophile I dislike the idea of joining german part to the English one, cuz then there will be no place for conversations in German at all. TT
I don't like the idea of mixing languages in 1 topic, cuz there'll be parts of the topic that part of people in the forum cannot understand and constant language question for any thoughtful "bilingual" like me =)))
I'd rather let German part be. With some off-topic German area it may prove to be more alive than it is now.

I'd gladly join those wishing current birthdays on the front page.

Also multilingual or even just English chat may be useful.

*Oh, I cannot find the original idea about changing layout of the forum, but the lighter one would be cool for my eyes =))))*

It's me again :) I just wanted to make it clear : I'm against uniting German and English parts, because it's quite a nonsense for me. Lacrimosa is a German speaking band, I like German langauge very much (that's why I learn it), so it definitely should be a part of the forum. If these two parts will be united, many problems will appear.
