    What would the community like to see come to PSU forums?

    So I have my own plans, namely:

    Pimping the PSU+ subscriber service
    Developing a trophy hunter culture
    Developing a writing culture
    Rebuilding the Design Squad culture
    Developing community gaming
    Refining aspects of forum content (special/interesting threads etc)

    I'm in the process of making a roadmap for projects this year and it will consist of the above but there may be other things that y'all would appreciate before this stuff.

    I'm really keen to hear what you guys think could be brought to the forums to make it more interesting. It doesn't have to be a culture, it might be a feature you could suggest or something else. Keep in mind that we have a budget of 0.00 atm so we have to get creative. We do have people like Chris and F34R who may be able to help with some of these things but basically just drop any ideas you have.

    That's the "official" budget btw. There are always ways to get some funding, depending on what it's needed for.

    How would you pimp the subscriber service? Sounds an interesting one!

    I also agree with specialist game threads, but the game would either have to have enough interest to warrant a single thread or you could do a racing game thread, FPS thread, RPG tread etc......

    You could also maybe ask if people are willing to donate? Even if it's not a lot every little helps, I would be happy to donate funds as and when I can.....

    That's been something done here since I can remember. It just kinda fizzes out.

    Well...I'd like each of the above cultures to have givaways now and then, like for Sig of the Month winner, some kind of game night challenge, writing challenges etc. On top of that...not too much..I don't really want to invest in plugins and stuff for the site given its state and the possibility of us moving sometime this year.

    Well, the idea is to make the experience of just being at the forums and engaging more interesting. The achievements is step one, we've also pretty much come decided on av/sig sizes, also giving the sub section more of a purpose and just any other cool/cosmetic things we could do. F34R, you'd know what kind of things are possible/worthwhile given our current software etc, have a ponder and drop me a line with some ideas. Justin also suggested some things last year, I need to find that thread and go through it, he had some good ideas.

    I've got a few ideas which namely relate to getting writing pieces on the site - whether it be previews/reviews/features - more inclusive with the forum. Like the way we embed Tweets in articles, we might ask questions pertinent to a certain article and then capture/crop good answers and include them in breaks of paragraphs, if that makes sense. I'll be suggesting bits and bobs in the next meeting.

    Yeah this is heavily tied into the writing section. Sir Scud is in charge of that these days. I've been meaning to rejuvenate the program and augment it with some writing guides and stuff. It WILL happen, I just have to look at what's to be done and come up with a marching order for it all.

    I still like my idea from 2010 (man I've been here long) to Move the news comments to the forum.

    I think it's still relevant and would help both the forum and the news part of PSU.
    Other opinions are available.

    I agreed back then, and still do.

    I believe something like this was already implemented but people rarely posted in the automated threads so it was scrapped.

    I think what you're remembering is that some threads were manually made from news articles. What we are talking about is that when a news article is posted, it's automatically a thread created, and any replies from that article, are generated as replies in the thread.

    Basically, just like macrumors.

    The bot was programmed only to post a part of the story and provide a link so that members would go to the article. It was a bit soulless.

    We now have Disqus on front page though so commenting is easy and orderly.

    Which stays out of the forums.

    It should then have its own section in the forum. I support the idea, I think its good to link the articles with the forum.

    Why would it have its own section when you can talk about it in any of the current PlayStation Chat forums?

    Because then they will be scattered around many different sections and create a mess.

    It wouldn't be a mess to keep them organized like any other thread consisting of a news article (e.g. a thread about PlayStation 4 in the PlayStation 4 forum where it will get the most exposure and reduce the chances of a duplicate thread).

    Then in the title it must state that its an article for easier recognition, Its just my opinion and recommendation. I want to be able to distinguish articles from threads easily and without the need to click on it and read its content.

    It would automatically go into a default section. Unless it's done with the options/modifications where the editor that posts the news puts it into a specific category, in which it would be generated in that specific forum section.

    I don't know what the best answer is when it comes to the whole forums versus comment system debate. There's pros and cons of both.

    I will say that I personally find a forum this large with so many different subforums cumbersome. I think some of it could be streamlined.
