Hey <3~

All right! So here's a place where you can give suggestions regarding stickied threads, forum topics, and so on, as well as to provide feedback. The thread title is kind of a giveaway!

Basically, we're aware that the forums are going to start off very small for the soft-launch. There's only so much that we can do to set the stage before giving this place over to you, our beloved Destructoid readers. So we want to know what we can do to make this place better for you.

For the time being, those can probably fall under the Showcase Your Talents node. But I totally want to do pinned threads for E3, Game Awards, and so on. That could be really goddamn fun, haha!

Edit: never mind. Just went into my email and there was a random one in there....

Is it possible to show more than 20 posts per page in a thread? I'll take as many as this forum backend lets you guys pack onto a page, honestly.

You know, I'm not sure! Though I'm not sure I want to change it to much more because of lower-memory devices like mobile. And data connections in image-heavy threads.

Well, as an option? Maybe the default can be 20. But when I'm on my nerd computer with my nerd monitor in portrait mode (like a nerd) I'd like to see as many posts as possible.

Just had an issue where it wouldn't let me log in via my username, it told me I didn't exist. Email still worked though so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

That is super, suuuper weird! Though at least you could still sign in? If you have any more sign-in issues, please hit me up right away.

Never, ever, EVER create a politics subforum, or even a politics thread. Don't even make a gaming politics subforum, no matter how much it's demanded. And watch that Hangout subforum like your life depends on it.

Like the slick formatting of the forums. Some suggestions for thread organization and topics.

1. I know it's included in the Talent section, but maybe a more dedicated primary area for qtoid and blog posts advertisement and feedback. Can also be used as a hub for "topics of the week" etc and create a cyclical feedback loop between DS Forums and DS proper. .

2. General collections section for gaming and non gaming related hobbies and collections. Gaming is a luxury hobby after all, usually more interesting things get picked up along the way (statues, toys, animation cels, comics etc)

3. General Positivity Section. These are some pretty challenging times were things can seem unbalanced and even hopeless. Might be nice to have a thread where people can post pick me up and inspirational things, funny comics or stories, or just provide a forum for people to be able to post concerns and have a community help to pick them back up.
