Creation of a ''Theme Team''

Post by Splytte on May 21st 2009, 2:26 am

Here is a suggestion I think I've already talked about, but I couldn't find it...

I think one important lack of Forumotion is that members can't actually request full themes. I mean there are lots of things they can request, from little graphic things, to a full review of their forum, they can ask for support, etc. But I think Forumotion would have again more members if the members could receive a personal theme they could be the only one using. The service given is a standard forum. I guess some people sometimes want to go further than something standard.

Last time I proposed this, Jalokim created his own service of theme buying, but my main idea was completelly distorded. First because I didn't want to sell themes (or not too expensive), and then the prices were much too high in my opinion. But that's not the point of this suggestion.

I suggest creating a team composed only with members who have a good experience in creating themes, which could have their own subforum in the graphic requests section, where people could ask for a personal theme. Of course there should be strict rules on when to accept or refuse a request, but that's not the important thing for now.

Here is the way I see it step by step :

1. A member asks for a personal theme.
2. If the rules and requested points are OK with it, it's accepted.
3. The theme specialist (There could be a specialist for each version of a theme, for example Jalokim would do the Invision part, and Me or somebody else would take care of the phpBB part) tags the request, and works on it on a personal forum, giving previews so that they can talk about the work.
4. Once the request is fullfilled, the Theme specialist install his theme himself on the requester's board (so that the work can't be copied).

Then, some possibilities :

Or, the requester wants to be the only one to have the theme, and he has to pay a fixed price (I propose 5-10€, that would go 50% for the skinner, and 50% for the team).
Or, the requester gives authorization for the theme to be placed on Hitskin, and pays nothing.

Here it is. Of course there are ways to ameliorate the system, but I think it could be a good step to make Forumotion go further, by giving more personnalization opportunities...

What do you think? Suggestions are of course welcome.

Edit, here was it, with 100% approvals... http://help.forumotion.com/suggestions-for-the-support-forum-f28/skin-team-t24197.htm

OH Splytte! loove

Steel the words out of my mouth!

I would love for this to happen; maybe we could make it happen with 'points'

Of casue that would require the activation of the points system ....

SO something like 3000 points = 1x full theme request?
Of cause it would be difficult to get 3000, however if you were regular enough, it wouldn't be that hard.

Note: Numbers are just a representation, and can be manipulated to a come correct & defined number.

=> YES YES YES YES! (on both suggestions)

I don't agree with the point system, I don't want to again ease the way to some members.. Wink

That's why I proposed the "pay" option Smile
Or, The member pays for the service, or Hitskin gets nice themes. Or it's good for Forumotion, or for Hitskin Smile

Great Idea.
Mate, will you please explain more ideas about payment system?
How members are going to pay the theme team?
How the team will get and distribute the amount?

This has to be discussed with the staff. I proposed 5-10€ shared between the creator and the Forumotion staff (50-50).

The payment method can be Paypal, etc, I don't care about that Wink

I don't think its really needed. Its a lot easyer to request images and to add it to your forum then requesting a theme. I don't really see wasting the time of the graphic designers time and giving them more work. They already do stuff behing the seens and trying to make the members happy.

So I say no.

No you didn't, and here is why :

@MrMario wrote:I don't think its really needed. Its a lot easyer to request images and to add it to your forum then requesting a theme.

So requesting a theme is forbidden, but launching 20 requests to finally get it is good? And with the restrictions of 1request/week, it will take half a year to have a theme.

@MrMario wrote:I don't really see wasting the time of the graphic designers time and giving them more work.

That's why I said, creating a new team.

But you can have your opinion, no problem...

I would waste my time and do themes for the members
even though i do the request while not being staff
i can make them happy by creating their own theme

btw: most of the GFX staff don't even finish the request Hem

This would be awesome for people to have a custom theme.
I make themes, and the ones I've made so far are really good!
I love making themes, and I even opened a Forumotion Forum where you can get a custom theme!
I voted yes! Very Happy
