Suggestion Templates

Post by ssilk » Fri May 12, 2017 11:23 am

The post of SteelWolf300 inspired me to make "templates": Obviously he read the "Read this OR be ignored!-article carefully and what comes out made my life as moderator much simpler.

The usage of this template is really simple! Before you hit "New Topic" just copy the following code by clicking "SELECT ALL" and then copy the selected text into your clipboard (normally CTRL-C or CMD-C shortcut).

Code: Select all

[h]TL;DR[/h]
One sentence to describe your idea with a bit different words than in the subject


[h]What ?[/h]
WHAT do you suggest? What is your idea that should be changed? Explain in detail your idea.
Instead of writing dozens of lines for several minutes, give us an
[img]image of what you are pointing[/img] and eventually
[img]how you would like to change that[/img]. (<- those img-tags are thought to be replaced with images!)
You should should prefer to upload images onto this forum to make sure your idea is readable in a year or more!
You can also refer to bug tickets or other links in the internet just by pasting the url.
That makes it easier to understand, what you are exactly about. :)

[h]Why ?[/h]
WHY do you think it increases the value of Factorio as a game?
See more about here:

Now hit "New Topic" and paste that. Read the text and replace it.
I'm thankful for suggestions on how to improve this, but please PM. :)



This is how the above template is looking by a filled out example:
TL;DR
Let's introduce suggestion templates to make the creation of suggestions easier and bring the suggestion in a better comparable form.
What ?
I suggest, that people can fill out a suggestion like a form. The just need to copy the pure text, like so:

Press "SELECT ALL" and then copy it to clipboard.
Afterwards they can use this template to fill out a new article:

Why ?
This increases the quality of suggestions and so - in long term - the quality of Factorio.
Uhhhhmmm... I stop the recursion here. :)
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.
Have you used the Advanced Search today?
