In the private messages it would be nice if when composing a message, if the history of the conversation could be laid out like a text message so I could just keep scrolling down to see what I have or the recipient has previously said

I noticed this since a while already. This board has the function "Show the last posts of this person." but not "Show the last topics of this person."

For me it'd be a great help if I could see all the topics I have created so if it is possible to implement this function, please do.

This has been suggested a couple of times already, if I'm correct. But I'm gonna do it anyway since it hasn't been fixed yet.

The sections "Novel Shoppu" and the 2 child boards of winny, "Dead Uploads" and "Requests & Search" all allow users with 0 posts to make their 1 post. Because of that especially the Novel Shoppu section has been flooded with those 1 time spammers.

I hope this can be fixed soon. :cries:

I will now double jumps suggestion :)
I completely agree. The emoticon :facepalm: is an emoticon that is needed.
This emoticon will be able to allow jcafe members to better express themselves.
Thank you for your consideration.

Ok, I have just small suggestion.
Even though the emoticon list is quite expanded, there is one emoticon I wish it could be here.
Namely, Face Palm emoticon.
While visiting jCafe each day for almost 3 months now I encountered several situations I could've use it and several that others could've used it.
That's all I had to say. Thank you for your time and attention.

To be honest this is only my second post, but I think you need to make the site more appealing. Something that makes people want to come back, or say "what was that site that I went to" (I have a degree in marketing so I like thinking about things like this). Personally I like most things about the site and I enjoy reading others thoughts and I do enjoy almost all forums. I, however, am not one to be so open with people I don't know and am afraid of people saying my thoughts are wrong; so what if there were a place where new members could speak they're mind without that fear. There would have to be someone who knew much more about the subject there, if only to offer constructive feed back. Those are my thoughts I hope I at least helped even in a small way.

 Maybe posts with just "Thanks" in it should be considered spam, at least if this is first (not to say the only) post of user. Otherwise topics may look like Mayo Chiki novel topic where 90% replies on 5 pages is monosyllabic.

On an unrelated note I'm also toying with the idea of rewriting/reorganizing the rules to make them a bit more reader/newbie friendly and coming up with explicit rules for some of the things we moderators have to deal with but don't have something in the rulebook to point to (e.g. incessant nagging about the next chapter/volume).
Make an etiquette rule(s) to enforce good judgment or behavior on the forums that can also be reflected with Renommée. 
Sorry, please read the forum rules to see why you can't view spoilers and why you can't post in this forum section. Thank you!

Back to normal now.
hmmm...
I think we need another active mod in the Winny Club to fill the void that Renegade334 left, people are becoming to sloppy with spoilers, open links, and Thank you spam. 
Speaking of links, are links leading to other sites like (raw1st.com, rawscans.com, etc...) even allowed?  Some of the links I ran into deal with the stupid adfly site or on that site the links are dead or are file servers on the ban list, like mediafire.

Is there some way to receive reported post notifications as PMs? I've found that sometimes my e-mail will collect dust for a while and when I finally go back to check it it's peppered with notifications. I would personally find it easier to notice if I could get that little shower of brass envelopes (maybe make a special icon for reports?) when someone reports something.

On an unrelated note I'm also toying with the idea of rewriting/reorganizing the rules to make them a bit more reader/newbie friendly and coming up with explicit rules for some of the things we moderators have to deal with but don't have something in the rulebook to point to (e.g. incessant nagging about the next chapter/volume).

Well, I've really dithered on this topic, but I've finally extended a warning to Fenrir_test (after several warning posts in Winny Club, which I'm not sure he read after). Yeah, big time slowpoke here -- been busy and very distracted lately due to private projects (still banging my head on a Java project).

Fenrir_test was slowly starting to diversify his messages and actually discuss series plot developments/ask questions, so I tried to give him one last chance - but he once again fell back into his bad habits - hence the warning. Anyway, he says he won't post those messages again, so we'll have to see whether that promise holds out. Regardless, he's on the watch list now. He knows.

Well, it seems that the new rule doesn't actually that needed after all. Besides, Renegade is not sure if it will be right to implement such a rule, considering his previous experience with more strict rules on another site - and his arguments were more than convincing for me. The only person who is really irritating me at the moment is Fenrir_test, and I demand that someone will take care of him in one way or another, as he had already "spammed" Winny Club with 750+ useless posts within a few months. 

On another note, what do you think about an IRC channel for jCafe? With all current developments in copyrights related area it sounds like a good way to discuss/operate stuff (primarily to discuss) there. It will be also useful in case of the site's maintenance or downtime due to attacks/other problems, so it will be possible to inform people about the matter, etc.
I've registered 2 channels for now: [email protected] and [email protected]  - right now #jcafe24 is considered as "official channel", but it easily can be changed in any moment. I think it's possible to integrate IRCHighway's webchat or Mibbit service into the site for those who don't like standalone software or unfamiliar with the IRC itself.
Any questions and suggestions are welcomed.       

Update: If jCafe mods wants to be an operator on the channel (or admin in case of silverado), PM me a random word here and the same word there - it's for correct person identification. And your nick should be registered on the network first (with the help of the nickserv service).

A little suggestion from a newbie,
  • First of all maybe the staff can consider upgrading the smf version to version 2.x.x since newer version mean less bugs and better mods support.
  • Secondly maybe the staff can put the forum into maintenance mode when trying new mods or when updating the themes, its been a long time since I last touch smf but im sure that smf have a maintenance mode.
  • Thirdly, it seems that you guys have too many floating member (registered member that rarely post), maybe you can attract those member into active members by arranging some sort of event on each suitable board, such as a writing short story/fan fic event on the writing board, drawing avatar/banner/signature/fan art event on the drawing board, a debate event  etc, the winner can get some sort of custom title or a +karma addition, while +karma don’t have much use at smf 1.x.x (except if you install a shop mods where you can buy stuff using +karma) you get a karma bar at smf 2.x.x that looks kinda cool, you also can add a portal mods to post the contest results upfront.
  • Fourth, got to admit that a lot of people came for the warez especially manga, while the other boards is dying, maybe you guys can assign some active mod for those dying boards and start a discussion thread in each board also a request thread would be nice.

sorry if I write too much, just want to share a little of what i thought regarding the forum improvement.

Ok, cool down time works.

Unit of warning levels are in DAYS.

I will look into the Novel Shoppu Issue.

Default cool down should be 1 or 4 days per level. I forgot which of them ^^.

It seems to me the issue here is that on the one hand some topics are getting spammed with thank you notes, while on the other some topics stay alive thanks to those notes. I also think that the one-note-a-month idea would be somewhat hard to implement. To solve all this, I think point 4.3 of the new rule should be modified. Below is my interpretation of the draft Renegade334 provided (some parts reworded for clarity):
Quote (selected)
4. In order to cut down on on spam-like posts in Winny Club, simple posts will be restricted as of [insert date here]. Examples of simple posts include: "thank you", "ren+", "thanks for the up, downloading", "awesome", "I'll read it now", etc. As a general rule, those posts that are no more than one (complete) sentence long and contain no new information relevant to the topic will be considered simple posts. If you wish to express your gratitude for a post or upload, please use the Renommée link labeled "Thank You!" that can be found to the left of each post under the poster's name and activity meter. If your post contains discussion about the topic series, a technical question, a reupload request (for dead links only), or any other useful information relevant to the topic, it will not be considered a simple post.
4.1 As of [insert date here], simple posts will be deleted upon discovery by moderators, and a warning may be issued. Persistence in posting such messages will result in a mute or a ban.
4.2 In the interest of keeping older and less discussed topics alive, an exception to the previous will be made if the most recent post in a topic is at least 1 month old at the time a simple post is posted to that topic.

Unrelated: What's the unit of time used in the warning menu? What happens if it's set to 0?
