I'm all for the Oekaki being removed. That place never gets activity.

But as for what I want kept, definitely the YouTube videos on profiles because they make great Supporter profiles, the page breakdown, and the picture albums of course!

Well, I've never made much use of the Oekaki, plus, we have our own art section anyway. And voted as well (Actually did that last night but whatever lol). Seems the 4 I voted for are the top 4 chosen so yay.

Really hope that we can keep the page breakdown, as this makes it a lot easier to access different pages of a thread without having to click first/last, then going to the page you want.

I also hope that we can keep the Youtube videos in profiles, as they can make for some really nice looking profiles.

The Oekaki should be on that poll, and it's the only thing I'd like to see removed. I haven't seen anyone use it for a looooong time.

All other features, meh.

Just jumping in again, there seems to be a general consensus that the Oekaki should be obliterated and wiped from memory?
After all, the last piece of artwork on there was from 2011 and the 'news' headline is from 2006, sooooooo

    If you disabled albums, people wouldn't be able to use backgorunds. Or would you just limit it?
    While the I don't use the "Share this thread" feature myself, I think it's beneficial to the forum if things get spread out on social networks.
    I barely notice the Oekaki and it doesn't bother me at all. I don't see anything bad about it and think instead of removing it, it could be promoted a little and given a last chance? This is probably stupid of me to say since I never used it, but removing it wouldn't really change anything about the forums (okay, that could also be used as a reason to remove it^^;)

    ...where in God's name is the calendar. o_o

    Anyway, the only thing that I feel truly matter (for me anyway) would be the Youtube video (I just figured out how to make my profile awesome, don't do this to me), and the hot threads icons. The others I don't really use at all. Hell, some I never used.

    Oops I should of added what I wanted removed. I definitely agree with everyone who says the Oekaki should be removed. Nobody uses it and I really never cared to use it myself. Also Hot Threads too cause honestly I didn't even know it existed and don't see much of use for it. Everything else is fine.

    I voted for albums since they are used for profile stuff, but of there is an alternate way to allow that without the albums I would be all for getting rid of them. As well as youtube videos; if a similar option is available without the videos, go ahead and axe them haha.

    I like the page breakdown for clubs where an important post is on the second or third page or so but that's about it.

    Other than that, looking forward to the changes! :D

    Personally I don't think any of the features I voted for should go.

    I'd hate to see these go because I use them and love these features:
    • Page breakdown - Why would you be rid of this? It is seriously dead useful for finding posts.
    • Community links - I love these. It'd be a pain in the ass to get to my blog otherwise. Also many old themes are missing important or critical updates to these links and I'd like to see this fixed.
    • Picture albums - I don't always upload things here, but usually when I do it has something to do with my signatures and such. Yes, I use dropbox to host my signature images...but I don't think this feature is entirely useless, as I've had other pictures uploaded too. Sometimes I like to share things like how my nails look or something. Hacks use this as well, and so do profile images...so I see no reason to neuter or remove this.
    • Youtube videos in profiles/as profile images - This is something that I've always liked about PC, and I'd hate to see it go. Being able to choose a video is pretty cool, and even cooler is the option to forego your profile image for a video is genius in my opinon.

    There were some other things I voted for, but I wouldn't be heartbroken to see them go. Personally I'd understand though if any of the above were causing too much server load and got removed, but most of them I don't see as being supermassive performance holes primarily because of their underuse. Maybe some of these could be restricted to supporters as well, so that the load is much less.

      I've not seen a forum without Page Breakdown, and I love it to pieces.

      I like the Post Icons, and I use them lots too.

      I like the Extra Thread Icons, but they see less use because they're more specific. I like how they make it easier to navigate though.

      The calendar, post icons, and IM icons are completely useless.

        My vote for Community Links is more for blog. I don't go to Chat (it doesn't work on my browser for some reason; says a plug-in is missing, but I have Java installed) and Oekaki, well, like others said, useless.

        I also just noticed a "Currently Active Users Viewing This Thread" on the bottom v that I never saw before o_o is that new? or am I blind?

        Only ones I'd be genuinely sad to see go are extra thread images and the page breakdowns. I actually use them, not to mention I can't really think of a visually appealing way to change the breakdown to say first/last.

        Everything else... meh.

        I would be elated to see IM, Calendar and "Share this Thread" to hit the road. (Despite my votes. - I voted for the ones I want to go, woops.) Oekaki is terribly useless as well, but by the looks of it, it won't be going any time soon. 8)

          Whelp, I voted.

          I've found the calendar before, said "Oh, I guess that's cool.", and forgot about it.
          But, I do love the youtube videos.

          We've done away with useful and active parts of the forum before, and for superficial reasons at that. There's no reason for it to be here. I only wish people were as protective of Social Groups, Rep, some moderator permissions, etc, things more important than the Oekaki of which I'm not sure I even spelled correctly.

          To me, it seems the Social Groups were used even more than the Oekaki. Ever since I registered here almost 4 years ago, I have yet to see one thread promoting some kind of activity of the Oekaki. If anything, I'd actually trade the Social Groups for the Oekaki. One seems to just be more active than the other... As was stated earlier by Harlequin.

          If the Oekaki isn't going down, does it mean Hstaff has some plan to promote activity in there? The last activity was from 2011, I think.

          ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

          I miss the good ol' Social Groups. I wouldn't mind trading them with the Oekaki, does anyone even use it? Like Team Fail said, in the three years I've been here, I haven't seen one thread promoting it at all.

          Honestly....this might be just me but...people still care about Social Groups? I thought the very reason why they were removed was because of their inactivity. oO; So I guess it's quite a shock to me to see so many people in support of it (unless I'm misinterpreting).

            Not sure what the Social Groups were, but someone mentioned I think a Rep System was in place but removed as well? I actually like Rep Systems lol

            Rep Systems that only have positives are great to avoid those angry, immature negative rep abusing-types. It's also just fun to have. Assuming there are little bars under our names that increase with rep? And if there is a max Rep received and given by day, that helps, too.

            I actually think I was around in '09 when Rep was in place... I have a handful of comments in my CP, albeit negative, that I think are related to it.

            But unless there's some sort of activity or plans to increase activity in the Oekaki, I don't see the point of keeping it :\
