    There's probably a way to implement sound notifications. I suspect the majority of the users wouldn't care for it and may even find it annoying.

    We should make it so there is a mic thing on sb like tc but ban classdoodles from it or else he would just yell in his mic all the time

    could the members online list update automatically without having to refresh the page?

    I suggest implementing a recent poll widget-thing that displays the most recent poll created (or perhaps voted on) and clicking on it links to the thread it came from. You'd probably want to exclude polls from the off-topic section and make the penalty for posting a purposely dumb poll in other sections really steep. A good spot for it would be either above or below the "User Recent Status" box on the home page. Maybe it would encourage more activity, especially on battle threads that are composed of newer and less-known spinners (it seems like many people don't pay attention to those)? :dunno:

    Maybe this idea has been attempted before (saw it on a UPSBv3 homepage in the Wayback) but it didn't really work? I dunno.

    whenever a notification is received telling that someone replied to a thread and that "there may be more posts after this", would it be possible for the notification to say whether there are or aren't more posts after it?

    I want to suggest a board for (mainly beginners) but anyone to post new tricks they're learning/just learned.

    As a very new spinner (~1 month), I see a lot of linkages/combos posted, and while those are awesome, I'm not really at the level to be able to execute those consistently. I'm mainly focusing on execution of single tricks right now, and videos/gifs of single tricks don't seem to be too popular (obviously because people at higher levels string them together).

    I mean, I guess it could just be a big thread, but I think it would be a cool idea.

    More of a question than a request. Is there a full back-up of the UPSB Wiki in case of an attack again? Obviously the Wayback Internet Archive has a lot of pages, but seems like this would be a reasonably good idea. But if a full back-up that updates like once a month or once a week is too hard to set up, then the Wayback is sufficient.

    EDIT: Did I actually post this? I thought I remember deciding to not post this but I guess I did. Strange things. :mellow:

    I suggest we add something so admins have to give a reason for the ban (And the banned person can also see it)

    Pls fix staff colors. The green is harsh and the dark blue is unreadable on dark theme. Beta red could also be a bit spiffier.

    @TheArker @Monk
    This thread is not meant for discussing why or why not you received a ban, if you have an issue with moderation action, feel free to PM the staff member that did so.

    Further posts about this will be deleted as well as the current posts as they do not contribute to the thread in a meaningful way.

    Recommendations from some discussions I had:
    -add/reimplement the scrolling banner of rules above SB (to prevent new members from spamming and not reading the rules)
    -reimplement "one month newbie" forum from v3, where only people less than one month can see/post in it (along the lines of Feuerstrum's post)
    -add a notice above the reply/post box about forum rules before positing
    -add/reimplement the same thing above when making a new post (as in v3/v4)

    I suggest at least stripping Zhkan from his mod powers, seeing how he has been banning lots of people for no reason
    For some reason, absolutely no moderators seem to be lifting a finger towards that mather

    can we has research forum as on v3? kthnxbai

    I think @Tigres was thinking about starting this up again but got busy or something. A history section along the lines of this old one could be cool. In addition to much of that info being on the wiki in the future (we have yet to add much of the info to applicable articles), it would also make the history neatly organized and accessible in one place on the board.

    Regarding the Research Department revival, I don't think that is really necessary because much of current pen spinning is developed as a community or by spinners that aren't necessarily on our board. Only reasonable purpose it would serve would be to standardize a few trick/notation conventions, but even then, I think anybody should be able to propose that stuff, not just selected members of a Research Department. Also many weird conventions at this point are essentially set in stone or pretty negligible. (Basically saying there is no need to form a separate group to try and develop pen spinning when anyone should be able to)

    we def don't need to revive the research department, but it would be nice to have a place/forum for people to ask questions - i.e. "what did penwish used to sell" (classdoodlez), "what's a reimei (muji) kt?"/why would I make one? (as muji kts came before the Menowa* reimei mod).

    It's more for asking things that don't have documentation, and finding the people that know about it.
