    Yes, I agree that a change is needed. Thankfully, it looks like we have finally found the right developer for the project:).

    Ok, we will submit a feature list in the next week:). Are there at least 5 things that you definitely want to see changed or added in the Review Directory?

    hm... five things I'd like to see

    • Switch Directory Index and Home or change the word Home to something else... kinda confusing to people that don't use it
    • More time for the session so you don't time out writing a review
    • Give showdown, contest, type stuff a section like Vote for RuneScape and Perfect World would go in this section to make it easier to find.
    • Ability to edit your reviews- if possible
    • Stay on the page your viewing when you log in.

    Ooo, forgot about some kind of Review profile, either in the directory or tied into the forum... might be tough to do though.

    All of Aaddron's ideas are great.

    Here is my idea:

    Have the reviews split into multiple pages of reviews, and have the user be able to select how many is on each page, from just 10 on each page, to 100 on each page. And finally, have a button that shows all the reviews on a single page. Oh yeah, and have whatever the user chose be saved so that it stays like that next time they come to the page.

    That sounds like a great idea, maybe add a shout box in there too.

    The new Review Directory is coming along nicely:). It will be integrated with the forum finally. We are going to try to add some of the features mentioned in this thread in the next week or so.

    I don't see much difference yet, apart from the style of the log-in box... Have you implemented the whole thing yet?

    Nothing has been implemented here yet:). It is being worked on off-site.

    Not sure yet. If it is that won't be for another week or more. The coder has not started some of the new features mentioned in this thread yet. What he has done so far is to improve the overall script and integrate it with the forum:).

    The Review Directory and Forum will share the same registration process. Once registered, the user will have the option to go to the forum or the Review Directory.
