BVEStation: Let's make 2017 Great Again!!
« on: April 04, 2017, 09:25:20 am »
Some old members may remember me, others may not. But I am trying to find new ways to help spice up the site or add any features that members would like to see in the future for BVEStation. The staff, pac & myself would like to know how we can make the user experience for all, much more enjoyable. Use this thread to submit any ideas. We (the staff) will try our best to implement these ideas.

Please keep your ideas clean and try not to downplay someone else suggestions.

Well not really much of a new idea but being on this site for about 5 years one of the liveliest threads here on BVEStation was the "The ONLY Official OpenBVE Screenshots/Videos Thread" (https://forums.bvestation.com/index.php?topic=134.msg442#msg442). A thread where people would freely share pictures or videos that were either train operating videos, music videos, or personal modifications they have done or are doing. Most people would usually go and showcase their work on Facebook now,including me ::), because it's easier and more convenient to post pictures, video, and/or share content from other websites to Facebook. A lot of people visit bvestation but only the same handful of people post on the thread. Not only that but when people do create a personal mod and post it here, on bvestation, they tend to think of themselves as developers and make their own thread about their work and only talk about it once or twice when they should just post it on "The ONLY Official OpenBVE Screenshots/Videos Thread."

The administration will try to enforce that as much as possible. Also we cannot take into account that certain users don't read. But overposting or spam posting won't be tolerated. We will try our best to also enforce that. If you have any ideas to make the link you submitted in your post more lively, drop me an inbox I can definitely converse and take some of your ideas and put it into fruition.

Well, I stopped posting here because I always felt like I was being ignored or no one really around. Sometime's I'd try to spark things up with a holiday post or something along those lines to get folks chatting and it didn't get anywhere. I've been a member since I was in HS and I am 26 now- One thing is for sure, BVEstation peeps have even stopped making holiday announcements (not even generic ones) so it made me feel it was like...dead (lack of word atm) as far up as site-admin level.
