I don't have any ideas as of yet but I can still see the old setup on the Notice Board and I don't know why!

I have a link to it saved in my favorite places and it hasn't changed. However, if I type in the website and then go to the Notice Board, it's the new setup.

But I like the old setup, so it's okay. :-)

No 'Stickys'.

No 'Smileys'.

No Quoting other folk without prior permission. I have copyright on my genius, people. It's chargable.

No Moderators - sad, lowly folk.

No mental patients. It's a big ask.

I think we should have smilies.
The ability to send personal messages.
Avatars; they brighten the place up, and a are wicked. they are also a way of refelcting the posters personality.
I hate this font. We should have the choice to change the style.

Font? Who cares?

How about something functional? Like a search function.

I vote no smilies or avatars.

Being able to send priv messages could be nice, though. Then again, people can also abuse this function, so...


No but avatars as I said reflect people personality and help people remember who the person is, makes them unique, as long as they don't keep changing the avatar.
Smilies are also a good way of emphasizing the mood....say someone is making a sarky comment or summit, it's an easy way to express that.
There are PM's at QOL and I have never recieved abuse in Private massages. And I am asking for it!

- a poll
- a quiz/contest
- updated biography (who would like to help?)
- FAQ or/and allowing people to submit questions like it used to be
- any kind of downloadable material (wallpaper etc)
- any kind of information (articles, interviews, lyrics, discography etc)


most answers here concern the notice board because most posters come because of the notice board in the first place. It's obvious that the new notice board does not yet work properly, so we might give Richard a chance to have the bugs sorted out. I miss the registration date, search function, edit function (very badly), and the Royalty title, I think I earned it :-)

I am not in favour of the notice board topics popping up on the front page, it looks a bit weird when you read:
Hot Topics:
Jesus is gay
LMFAO
etc

Before this starts to look negative : I am really happy about the revival of the event page and the news letter, the improved chat room, the Bittorrent project and most of all the "Stage Of Champions" project.


I do not want any google ads here.

I think I'm posting this for the third time... I don't know if this is fixed:

When I try to edit my reply to someone's thread, it doesn't work. It keeps telling me to log on, and when I log on, it gives me a blank page.

I really think there should be a link to log on page in the menu. I always end up going back to the old page and log on.

A while ago I found that article submission function doesn't work. I wonder if that's fixed now.

Other than that, it's all fine. I really like different projects going on.

Oh! Yes, to minimize the frequency of annoying questions plaguing the board, the site maybe should have something akin to: Freddie and AIDs - everything you ever wanted to know - same with where John is. (And I'm not kidding.) Or that could go under FAQ which is currently not very updated. (demonstrating that Queenzone.com is for semi-veteran fans...)

I love polls! In some foreign Queen page I saw the "favorite Queen song contest" poll. What's unique about it is that they had it like a tournament - i.e. Quarter final, semi final, final... (Also allowing user comments) That looked quite interesting.

The BitTorrent project is wonderful! Perhaps there could be a page in the menu separately for instructions as to how to use it... (or is it something not to be public?) I want to make a torrent file out of my stuff but don't know how... :|

And please no smilies! Not too much graphics! (Except lovely Queen pictures)

What happened to old threads? Can we still search for them?

That's it for now... really, this site is almost the only site that I visit weekly, if not daily. (Along with Sebastian's site.)

Again, I write another reply because the edit function doesn't work.

Freddie tribute link is broken. Despite all things, I think that feature should stay.

All the info in the library section link back to old webpage. Either change their looks to new, or go back to the old... The lack of unification is more bothering than any color scheme.

Not to be negative, love the new board!

I agree with what YV said and in particular the notice board on the front page.

"Danno, have you not yet grasped the new quote box scheme? :p"

Kinda hard to grasp when you can't even use the new board, Wouldn't you say?
