This is the suggestions thread. This is a thread open for people who have suggestions to better the forum. Please note that I'm not some coding genius, and I can't do everything, but I will try my best to fulfill as many suggestions as I can in a timely manner. I will post some of the things that aren't going to be discussed here and/or we already know about as time goes on:

- N/A (currently).

Please note that this is a suggestions thread, and not a complaining thread. Swearing/getting mad because your suggestion wasn't taken into consideration will not get you anywhere. A common suggestion that we get is to add a certain smiley to the forum. We will usually add any smiley upon request, however, we'd like to put this little disclaimer out there: by submitting your smiley as a request to be added, you agree to give us permission to use it as our own indefinitely.

I was wondering if it was possible to add more smilies. There aren't too many on this forum, and some of the favorites are gone... Such as :Doge: :usrs: :ranger: and others. Thanks for the consideration :)

We'll try to. The only reason I'm hesitant of adding those smilies is because they are from another site, and since we are on our own domain and server, we could get into copyright troubles, unfortunately.

Oh. Alright Zach :|
Maybe it will be possible in the future with an add-on. :) However, don't count on this.

You should create a Mario Kart 7 section along with MKWii and MK8, or put a Mario Kart 7 section in the Nintendo 3DS/DS section ;)

The only reason there isn't a dedicated Mario Kart 7 section like there is for Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 is because Mario Kart 7 isn't a game for the 4DR clan that we play (like Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 is). I'd be happy to put one section in the Nintendo DS/3DS section though.

We should implement a serious debate section, because I want to put up something that must be taken seriously and not joked about. I feel that the General Discussion page is not the best place to put it.

Ok, Thanks! :)
Almost forgot about your suggestion, Tim. D: I have added a Mario Kart 7 sub-section under the "Nintendo DS/3DS" section. Here's a direct link as well: http://4drclanforum.com/index.php?forums/mario-kart-7.55/

For those who haven't been following the conversation, the reason it doesn't have its own dedicated section with sub-sections is because it isn't a game that 4DR involves itself in. So, it's a sub-section for now.

I think the Time Trial Leaderboards should have another leaderboard for Bike Times on MK8 and kart times on MKWii, since in MKWii bikes are faster and in MK8 karts are faster.

If enough people submit with those combos, I think that would be a really awesome thing to add. The problem is that don't people use the fastest combo possible (on both MKW and MK8) to get the best time possible anyway?

Well if there was a Best MK8 bike time leaderboard, people would try to get the best bike time, kart times wouldn't count on that leaderboard. Same with MKWii/Karts!

I suggest we have a "dark theme", like on Icyboards forum. I actually really liked that theme. :)

I will do my best to add a dark theme going into the future. :)

I would guess by now it isn't likely possible but it might be but I'll ask anyway: Is it possible that there can be more features in the Shop?
