What do you want to know about your fellow N4Gers?

User blog

No, not in a creepy way. :)

The new N4G is nearly here, and when it arrives I want to use that beginning as the kickoff point for some other new things. Among them, a member feature that will give us a chance to get to know our fellow N4Gers better.

So what sorts of things do you want to know about your fellow members? How they got into gaming? What their username means? What gaming achievement are they most proud of? Post the sorts of questions you'd like answered - and you'd like to answer - below!

What I want to know Is why Isn't Rando mandatory for every member? Force if necessary may be needed. Spread the word...

On topic. I really have no idea. Most of the time you get to know another person by talking to them.

No stalking, please. Lol.

gamercard to include PC orientated services such as steam and xfire.

Have tags for users and then a search for users feature. Like, say a user is tagged as "hardcore" and another user wants to play a game with people tagged under "hardcore" they search for the tag and a list of peeps come up. Each user can have multiple tags and a list of the games they play.

So I would search for "TF2, elite" or something along the lines of that and a list would come up telling me who plays TF2 and is a competent shot.

And what kwicksandz said above. There aren't a lot of Steam users on here but it would be nice to have anyways.

Favorite Genres, Systems they have owned one point or another...
new gamer, old gamer, hardcore, Fanboy Gamer, Casual gamer....

Favorite game of all time with an image of the box or something...

Popular game the don;t like
unpopular game they love

this is good... I think... the more it is related to gaming and the history of the persons gaming it would be better...

Not sure, but as Phil said, you usually get to know others through the forums. I think getting to know the site staff such as yourself, Dusty, Jamie, ZT, and all the Mods would be a good thing.

Though some of us know a bit about some of the Mods, likes Smokey likes making his own brews and he is an engineer, Snoops is an Audiophile, and Odion....Well, he's Eastern Canadian, what more can you say about him? Lol.

But I think your idea is a good one.

Oh! How about a steak and steamed veggies sub-forum?

Lol.

game list
A list of games people have would be great... that way we can compare games and see if we have games that we can play together or our taste in games... 1up had a list like that and you could even search for users that had games like you did... it is a great way to find gamers playing the same games...

I think some non-gaming stuff would be interesting. We usually get a pretty good idea about people's gaming habits if they stick around the main page or the forums long enough.

How about what they do for a living? Do they keep pets? Pee standing up or sitting down? That sort of stuff.

Like the other day I found out one of our forum guys is a radio host. Thought that was pretty cool.
Pain  +   1655d ago
i would like to know why....
That Pain guy is soo kool and as to why there is no Planet named after said greatness?

Streaming competitions come to mind. PC user vs. PC user

PS3 vs. PS3 user and Xbox 360 user vs. xbox 360 user.
Lightweight browser app, robust, not taxing on resources and something asthetically pleasing, perhaps the GUI would reflect the websites design.

I think streaming competitions would set the bar for gaming websites and would put N4G above sites like IGN that have been around much longer.

Make it happen! So we can have a truly valid reason to rip on fanboys. e.g: sucking in games after talking trash, LOL.

Something similar to justin.tv, but better in every way.
Sunny_D  +   1654d ago
Have a tag for everyone. Other members vote on what the name should be, then after voting, the tag is under them like hardcore 360 fanboy or ps3 droid or old gamer for older people here.
TenSteps  +   1653d ago
Ban those with excessive unrelated to their life numbers at the end of their usernames type people
I'll be going now

A warning system and harder moderation on the gamer zone. Three strikes and you're out.

Series and Genre marking.
You know, I have a great idea for N4G, that would make it a whole lot easier to look up news on N4G. Over the years, it's got more hustle and bustled with 'debate stories'. Most the time I look for news, previews reviews, games, developer interviews, portmortems, etc.

I'd actually like something so I can 'mark' series such as 'Ratchet and Clank' or 'Serious Sam' so any news headline referring to the series gets instantly sent to me, and filter genres such as FPS, Platformer, Third Person Shooters, Sandbox games so N4G would automatically have them listed in a section when I log in.

It'll probably be complicated though as it's getting more difficult to list a genre of a game these days as they all begin to blur and would make submission just that more annoying when selecting from a 'genre tab' too.

That's a good idea.
I like it.

"No, not in a creepy way. :)"
Don't lie to me Cat! If you're involved it's going to be at least a little creepy.
On topic, I'll PM you my "advice". You'll understand why when you read it. Feel free to share it with ZT, Dragonfly and Dusty.

Id like a dedicated N4G achievement system so all id have to do is enter my gamertag/ID and people could see the achievements ive won.

And if your going to redo N4G, id really like the submit news pages to be more streamlined, thers way to much loading.

That'd be nice....

Id also like some sort of user name screening. Im tired of all of the names that give agames story away. Wouldnt it be easy to send someones profile to a MOD to check if its a good username (if not they wil be forced to change it or not have one).
TMAN  +   1649d ago
Any chance we could have a day grace period to fix our names that we (no one in particular...) could fix our names due to a typo, being a noob at typing at the time? Lol.
