    Shop REBOOT!

    So, I want to reboot the shop. I want it to have more of a relevant focus but I also want to hear what you guys think. One thing that I want to see is seperate shops for the different sub cultures at PSU, like DUST 514 or FFXIV clan shops for example. There is also going to be a special section for subscribers with extra cool stuff in it!!!1! I want to make SP relevant again, to find interesting ways to earn it at the site.

    I would personally like to see a fully game themed shop library but this will be bst when we get as many ideas and thoughts as possible. Sound off below, how should the shop be organised, how should it be themed? etc

    So far:

    SHOWS
    Breaking Bad
    Game of Thrones
    The Walking Dead
    Sony of Anarchy

    GAMES
    DUST 514
    Final Fantasy XIV


    BANDS...?


    DEVELOPMENT STUDIOS
    Most of Sony 1st party
    Big 3rd party

    I wouldn't do the separate shops for subcultures really. I would like the icons, but not necessarily the game. So, earn the points, pay for the icon. I'd rather not have to endure a game that I don't want to play just to enjoy the icons in the forum.

    Just my opinion I guess.

    I seem to remember we have a current limit of 250. I think we need to explore either expanding that or exploring the necessity of deleting some of the current stock. But before we evn get to that...now's about pondering alternatives.

    I'll throw in my 2 cents. I'd really like to see some Walking Dead icons.

    If we did shows, I think it would be good to support a few shows really well instead of many so so. Maybe like...

    The Walking Dead
    Breaking Bad
    Game of Thrones

    More ideas people!

    There is a sticky for items in the Design Corner that are long overdue to be implemented. Could we focus on them before suggesting new items?

    Didn't I read somewhere we might be moving away from vbulletin, found it.

    PSU as a site is in the best shape it's ever been in terms of its future. That does include the forums too and if things continue going to plan we'll be moving totally away from Vbulletin to something better.

    So, wouldn't this be a bad time to bother with things like this?

    The designe corner would work well with a design shop, were people design sig's and avatar's and people can buy them and the designers earn the sp

    the MAIN shop does need fresh items for sure,

    I believe in working with what we've got until we move on to something better. It could be awhile before we move and I dont want to wait.

    Fair enough. Maybe the switch is a bit (or a lot) further off than I thought (hoped).

    The one i suggested, were GTA V items like logos and characters

    plus Next gen consoles and controllers and Ps4 Logo and Xbox-one logo....

    The switch won't be too far off, I'm not going to babble any dates cause I don't know when but so long as we kick ass with the PS4 launch it's a sure bet. Steven is aware of the state of our forum and understands the long overdue

    The best thing that the PSU community can do if it wants to move to a new forum quicker is get behind the site and support our content. Posting and discussing articles from PSU's news page, getting behind the Youtube show, sending news stories via that green button up top right. The site's success will be boosted by increased support and awareness, and if people shared and liked and did all these things, it would also help us.

    Also, populate the forum with interesting/intelligent content. The site is a living digital magazine and if people come here and see a lot of $#@!ty "articles" (threads) they won't care to stay. If we have threads that are interesting and look nice and are cleverly titled, it helps. I am going to be tightening up this side of the ship. The content we provide will reach a higher standard in order for better lurker attach rate.

    the idea is to extend the shop beyond simply being a random shop that has 'stuff' in it.

    If i said "i support the Amarr master race and the Caldari can suck an ostrich egg", very few would know what i was on about....the statement is still true nonetheless

    This is what the intent is with these subculture icons; Stuff that people who are part of a particular game community can use to represent themselves here in our forum community.

    Someone might see an icon that interests them, which subsequently gets them into a game they might otherwise have passed up.

    Ghost only provided examples of a foundation. it will grow, but we need to start it somewhere

    Music will probably be a pick of artists from a few genres and eras so that there is a broad and generally popular bands. For shows, I'd probably look at doing a handful of shows really well instead of a dozen so so. Keep the suggestions coming.

    There's really not much you can do if you don't increase the shop limit. If you want to revamp the shop without doing that, you'll have to delete icons that people already bought.

    Personally, besides the limit, I think the shop's main weakness is how confusing it is to navigate. By default, you only see 25 items at a time, which is separated into multiple tabs. You have to click the drop-down to see 250 at a time, which shows most of the tabs, but still not all of them. You should be able to see all the tabs right away, and each tab can have multiple pages.

    These are all technical problems though, so hopefully Chris can help you out there.

    So until then, all you can do is delete items people already bought and instead add items you think will be more interesting.
