Title: SUGGESTION BOX - Have A Suggestion? Post It Here!
Post by: Wolf Man on October 21, 2008, 02:15:48 PM
[admin]Have a suggestion? This is the place to tell us![/admin]



I really hope I am not over stepping my bounds as a new blood but I have a few suggestions for the forum I thought I would offer up.  

I am not sure if it can be done, I really like the lightning effect on the background spider webs and thought if we had some cool sound effects to go with it that would enhance the awesomeness of the site.  I particulary like the haunting sounds on the Menu page of the Legacy Collection.  Just some cool sound effects to hear in the background while surfing the forum would be awesome.  

I also thought it might be a good idea to create a gallery of members with their favorite cool photo next to their screen name.  Perhaps a costumed photo or some other cool shot.  With so many members maybe it would have to be done for those who reach a certain number of posts.  It would be great to be able to put faces with names and have a member gallery of photos to surf through.  

Those are the only two ideas I can think of at the moment.  So far I have really enjoyed the site.  Keep up the good work.

I really like this idea as well. General Terry, do you think something like this could be implemented for members?

An idea that has definitely been taken into consideration. Not sure though that it has to be a Gallery photo album. We could also make it a sticky thread at one of the boards where members go ahead and post their favorite photo of themselves. Their profile and avatar would also show as it does in any other post. How's that sound?

Yknow quite a few of the current members missed out on the Ootmah phenomenon - what is being described could almost be derivative. I miss Ootmahs -  but I know all things must pass, like gas in the night. But sometimes also these things return...in a different form...

Title: Home button Feature Request
Post by: Gareee on December 27, 2008, 10:50:09 AM
Just a minor addition, buit one that's commonplacew when web prowsing.. typically when there's a website logo, you can select it to head back "home" to the main page.

But the only way we can go to the home page is that teensy weensy button.

Could you add the link code so the main log also sends us back home? It's nice, and big, and I MUST select it!

That's a great idea Gareee. Yes, I can make that change sometime over the weekend. Thanks for the suggestion!

Post by: Gareee on December 27, 2008, 04:19:40 PM
Thanks! It's not much, but something I'm always used to. (Also when people use larger monitors with much higher resolution, the button sizes all shrink down.)

I think the home button here might be 1/8th inch high, and 2/5s of an inch wide.
Title: Re: Home button Feature Request
Post by: fmofmpls on December 29, 2008, 12:45:48 PM
Now working! The forum home page logo is now an active link which will automatically redirect to the forum home page.

Thanks Gareee for the suggestion! It helps me too with aging eyes as well as a large screen resolution.

Post by: mike c on July 05, 2010, 12:48:45 PM
I'm sure I'm not telling you anything you don't know, but when you click that 'forever' setting, your computer accepts a cookie (or some similar digital agreement that results in a tiny file saying 'remember that he clicked this!' being placed on your computer)... perhaps you have a setting on an antivirus or firewall software somewhere which is not allowing you to accept cookies?

Or, if you happen to have any programs that clean out your temp files or cookies or internet cache, etc., running in the background, your click on 'forever' will only be good until that program cleans out the cookie that you received when you clicked it. I have made sure to set all of my monitoring/cleaning applications to manual, and gone into their options to exclude/exempt cookies from UMA and some other frequently visited sites when the program runs its clean-up.

If you have anything like Norton, or McAfee, etc., go into their inner workings and see what they're doing with your temp internet files, your cookies, and what is set to automatic vs manual. If there is the option to exempt certain cookies but block all others, make sure to put the UMA (and whatever else you'd like) on that list.

Just one option fer ya.

Its working here.. though with the new update I can't find themes anywhere, to go back to a mainly white screen with dark text.

(Though I found out for cell phones, having a dark background is actually better since it requires less battery useage to display.)

Hi Gareee. The old themes prior to the recent update no longer work with this version of software. There is however a "white theme"  named "smf default core". You should be able to switch to this theme by clicking on your profile and then clicking on look and layout preferences. More themes will be made available in the coming weeks.

It's probably not a big deal but I noticed that "memorabilia" is spelled wrong on the index page. Looks like it's correct on the webpage title.

I fixed it, if whoever is in charge of that sort of thing wants to use it:

I thought this might get more attention here.
I'm not sure who to address this too but has anyone thought of implementing a chat room on this site?  I think it would be a great idea to be able to have a real-time conversation with other members.  We could also set times for discussion chats or round-tables.  So if anyone else thinks this would be good, please respond here and hopefully who ever needs to see this can develop a chat room for this site.

Re: Name Of New Chat Room....    Here's one-

Post by: fmofmpls on June 03, 2012, 07:50:12 AM
We now have a new board dedicated strictly to chitchat (aka- chat room). This new chat room is an expansion of our previously used chat feature known as a shout box. I looked into several chat room options, but none allowed for integration with our registered members and would have required members to sign in with new a user id, etc. Not having the integration would have created confusion and a cloak of anonymity to the user experience, so I decided to stick with what works. 

The shout box has always been found on the main forum index page towards the top left. Having it there was convenient for members to view the current shouts at any time. Having a larger chat room at a dedicated chat board inside our forum prevents us from having the same visibility of the previous shout box. And it doesn't make sense to continue on with both chat features - at least I don't think so.  You may also notice there's a new option enabled that allows members to see who's viewing a certain board at any given time. This was enabled so members can see who's inside the chat room and therefore might be willing to participate in the chat. You may find that option towards the bottom of the chat room message box. At the other boards that same option is found towards the top of the board.

A couple other things about chatting at UMA:

* guests may view a chat, but can't participate unless they register as an official member.

* chatting at UMA is subject to the same terms of service as any of our other boards. Flaming and spamming is NOT allowed.  You will be banned for said violations! The chat room is moderated.   

Finally, this chat feature is still in beta mode and is being refined for a better user experience. We are open to suggestions for improvements, so please feel free to comment with your input.

Post by: fmofmpls on June 16, 2012, 09:30:11 AM
I'm still exploring and developing a more refined chat room experience. Our current Shout Box chat feature isn't a true chat room in that it doesn't allow for instant refresh of incoming messages. The only way the Shout Box is refreshed is when you leave a certain page and then come back to it (or go to another). This is known as a "manual refresh." A true chat room shouldn't be dependent on performing manual refreshes of one's browser. True chat rooms should refresh with each incoming post.

Please feel free to explore an all new chat room that I'm currently developing for the UMA. It's still in beta mode, so please be patient as things change by the day.

Love this site.  I just want to give a shout out to UMA and thank them for such a great site!! I 've had several UMA memebers  visit my site and suggest I link to your website for other future fans.  I am an avid Mattel Thingmaker Collector and Topper Motorized Monster Collector. I also refurbish Vintage Sets and offer supplies for them.  I would like permission to add a link from my site www.creeplepeeple.com (http://www.creeplepeeple.com) to the UMA site home page.  I would also love to become an UMA Allie of your site if you would have me.  Please let me know,  Thanks John

[admin]Have a suggestion?  This is the place to tell us![/admin]

I want to do a simple post no photo but you have no button just to do a past. I have searched your whole site but can't find a post button.

I really hope I am not over stepping my bounds as a new blood but I have a few suggestions for the forum I thought I would offer up. 

I am not sure if it can be done, I really like the lightning effect on the background spider webs and thought if we had some cool sound effects to go with it that would enhance the awesomeness of the site.  I particulary like the haunting sounds on the Menu page of the Legacy Collection.  Just some cool sound effects to hear in the background while surfing the forum would be awesome. 

I also thought it might be a good idea to create a gallery of members with their favorite cool photo next to their screen name.  Perhaps a costumed photo or some other cool shot.  With so many members maybe it would have to be done for those who reach a certain number of posts.  It would be great to be able to put faces with names and have a member gallery of photos to surf through. 

Those are the only two ideas I can think of at the moment.  So far I have really enjoyed the site.  Keep up the good work.

Sounds like you don't want to post a photo, in which case you do nothing. If you do want to post a photo in a message, click this link.

We have a monster that eats people who do, so if you're still alive . . .

I also thought it might be a good idea to create a gallery of members with their favorite cool photo next to their screen name.


I'm sure that has been done in a thread, somewhere (maybe in "Members Only"), but I don't know where. Seems like the best place to do it, though.

Can't help you with the sound FX. Maybe someone else can.

I do allot with photoshop (like recent 3D images) and usually just post in the Classic Universal section.
How about a separate section for photo-manipulations, drawings/paintings, colorizations, pastiches, and such?

Any thoughts for an Artwork category?


It's at the top of MEMORABLE MEMORABILIA.

OK, thanks. Can't say I'd ever noticed it before. I'll check it out......

I think it was moved from the old "Members Only" section.

I would like to see a Members Only section reinstated that allows any type of post.  This would create a stronger sense of family, as we can vent our personal problems and have our UMA family help.  For some this is the only family left.  It can also be used to talk about non-monster stuff, personal dealings, and whatever else is on our mind.

I'd like to see a Birthday Section. Not just for members (which would be nice, since we do list birthdays at the bottom of the front page), but also for our beloved horror stars and filmmakers.

Maybe a child board for Memorable Memorabilia.  We could call it "Memorable Events", "Memorable Dates" or "Memorable Milestones"?

Anniversaries of release dates for favorite films, birthdays of Karloff, Lugosi, Chaney, etc., etc. etc...

(Which reminds me that Yul Brenner was in Westworld.)

I suppose I could put a couple of sticky topics in "Announcements".

I was just responding to another member wanting a place to wish fellow UMA'ers happy birthday and the like.

How about a board for monster literature/novels/comic books?  The Universal monsters do have at least some presence in both mediums.

Can we please have either unlimited time to edit our posts or the option to delete them when that time has expired?

I'm not in favor of this.  It could cause a lot of confusion in following threads.

If the moderators think it is a good idea, how about letting the members vote on it with an opinion poll?

I talked to  the boss and he's not interested. All I can say is to let me know when you wanted something changed, or deleted. Sorry!

He may be referring to emoticons in general. Some of us do use them, and I've noticed a few requests to allow access to a wider range of them.

Yes.

Can't understand why anyone would be against more emoticons. As with posts, if you don't like them just ignore them. Some folks enjoy and use them.

Let me know if you find any you like, out there on the interwebs.

 I was just wondering if it was possible to send a mass email out to members that used to post here on a regular bases but for some reason are no longer posting inviting them back to join in.I realise Facebook and other issues have slowed down forums like this.Even the Mods with the exception of Mike,which is much appreciated,don't post anymore.
  Discussions here have slowed down quite a bit in the last year.
  Just a thought.

Have not read all postings/suggestions how about...

Having a Forum/topic, whatever you call it...for Monster Magazines-Old-New-Coming Soon, etc...?
Other sites do I know, but since we are going strong here, why not a one stop monster site with all things/topics?
I believe at first, you had reservations of adding a mask topic header (?).  Now one of my most visited!
