As the subject says I'm looking for opinions, suggestions, etc on what we can do to make this site a better place to spend your online HeroClix time.
Please don't worry about getting us upset by voicing your opinin, consider this a impromptu poll and let us know what you feel we can do better.
We know certain probelms are still out there, a few issues with myrealms and some items missing from the collection tracker, those are noted and will hopefully be fixed. What I'm more curious about is general Realms usage, the boards, other features, features you would like to see, things you would like to see different, etc.
Let me state that this post doesn't mean we will rush out and implement every suggestion, right now we're just gathering some information to help not only this Realms but all of our Realms sites.
I want a random team generator, based on your collection and needed point value. I don't know if this makes things "better" though. I'm just curious.
As far as improvments, how about having the Mods taking a more active role in structuring conversations. Not just Mods, either, but just people with intelligent conversation abilities. So much #### is getting posted here, I'd like to see a more orderly discussion, devoid of random insults.
I would like to see a seperate forum where these arguements can be addressed. And not the "Dear WizKids..." forum. A new forum where these guys that have a problem with HC rules, abilities, etc. can let off steam.
For the most part, I'd just like the corrections to the unit search and collection tracker to be fixed. Unit search is the single most useful aspect of this board. arsuf476 has the same idea I do, regarding a "universe specific" search. That would make team building for tournaments better.

Great point, unfortunetly that thread had slipped past my attention until very recently. Before this past week we only had a few moderators to handle a huge user base. Roughly 1 Moderator per 2,000 registered users.
Now we have two new ones signed up and we're working on getting things back on track.
I've checked that thread and I'm trying to decide what to do with it, the discussion isn't bad but it did get a bit carried away.
One thing I've heard complaints about that bothers me is that a lot of threads turn into spam fests, arguments, etc. Sadly I don't have the time to read every thread, I'm hoping with new moderators we can cut down on this sort of thing but if you see a thread going downhill please report it to us.
Consider the Unit Search/MyRealms/Advanced Search done! It's at the top of my list for this weekend, and I will get those resolved immediatly. We have some other really cool add ons coming as well. We do want to hear your suggestions for what else we can do better, so keep posting away!
I have to chime in for the limit search by universe bit, but I'd take it a step further. I'd like to see restricting results by Marvel, DC and Indy (once they are out) but it would also be nice to be able to say "only Clobberin Time". Maybe a drop-down menu with All Marvel, All DC, All Indy, IC, HT, Ct, X, etc. would work?
Given the amount of trading that goes on, I would like to see some sort of Good (and Bad, unfortunately) Trader Catalog. Something where you could put someone's name in and they would show up in one of the two lists along with the name of the people who have added their names to a "yes, good trader" vote.
The current system isn't bad, but when I do a search I might get someone's thread that has vouches for them and I might get them vouching for other people.
It would be neat to see just someone's handle with a list of people who had good trades with them.
