[For Developers] Reviewing the Thread Tittle

25th March 2012, 11:02 PM |#1  
Hi DEV,

I made the Index for making the experience for the users better and make the Forum organized, but how I spend my life working and studing it is difficult to taking all the information inside the thereads, because alot of DEVs make my work harder, don't putting the version of the ROM and date of update.
If you want help me and promote your ROM, take a not in the Tips below and input them in your thread title:


Distinction, ex:

[ROM MIUI]

[ROM]

[KERNEL]

[MOD]

Version of Android Supported, ex:

[ICS 4.0.3]

[GB 2.3.5]


Name of Rom / KERNEL / MOD, ex:

ROM -> [SeXyThing]

KERNEL - > [Thing]

Mod - > [flightmode]

Version of ROM, ex:

[V0.9]

[V1.2]

[V1.3]


Date of the Update, ex:

[23/03] - {DD/MM (DAY/MONTH)}

Final Exemple:

[ROM][ICS][SeXyThing][V1.2][23/03] - bla bla bla better battery, bla bla bla better signal


I just want organize, making this few adds in the title will make the forum better and professional, the DEVs should add this at the start, example:

Before:
[ROM][ICS][25/03][FIRSTAOKP/MTP]SeXyThing-ICS 25.03[NOW WITH MTP!!][SOURCEWORK][Up'ed]
[Soon]<4.03>[HTP] SexyORnot? ROM v1.4 PF-BRAVIA ENGINE - BZM SOUND ENGINES - THEMES
[ROM][ICS]LALABUK 4.03 AOKP-CCC[25.03.][HW VIDEO][STARTED:23.02.-WHO is THE FIRST?]

After:
[ROM][ICS 4.0.3][SeXyThing][V25][25/03] - First AOKP / MTP - SOURCE WORK - UP'ED
[ROM][ICS 4.0.3][SexyORnot?][V1.4][26/3] - HTP / BZM SOUND ENGINES / THEMES
[ROM][ICS 4.0.3][LALABUK][V1.2][25/03] - AOKP CCC / HW VIDEO [STARTED:23.02 WHO IS THE FIRST?]

Sincerely, the Title is more atractive and make the view of the forum Cleaner.
Let's go make this changes and see if will be better or not.
I need you DEVELOPER for make this work.


Thanks of Your Understanding.

Great idea, more to be overdue!!

I recommend to inlude the "update-day" more at the beginning! It is more fact-related than e.g. the name of the rom.

According to my ideas this is my suggestion:
NEW:
[ROM][ICS 4.0.3][25/03][SeXyThing][V25]- First AOKP / MTP - SOURCE WORK - UP'ED
[ROM][ICS 4.0.3][26/03][SexyORnot?][V1.4] - HTP / BZM SOUND ENGINES / THEMES
[ROM][ICS 4.0.3][25/03][LALABUK][V1.2] - AOKP CCC / HW VIDEO [STARTED:23.02 WHO IS THE FIRST?]


Also, I dont see it necessary to start an extra [..] for the version-number. This should be included in the [Rom-Name] and should not be a must-have! With updating the [DATE] users can easy check on how theres an update or not.

My 2nd suggestion would like this:
NEW:
[ROM][ICS 4.0.3][25/03][SeXyThing - V25]- First AOKP / MTP - SOURCE WORK - UP'ED
[ROM][ICS 4.0.3][26/03][SexyORnot? - V1.4] - HTP / BZM SOUND ENGINES / THEMES
[ROM][ICS 4.0.3][25/03][LALABUK] - AOKP CCC / HW VIDEO [STARTED:23.02 WHO IS THE FIRST?]

I guess all the rules are in Mods thread ... but I dont think it should be changed ... It is hard to maintain a repository ... but its fun

Weird. I always thought this was the current standard anyways. Will make it easier to navigate the board. I'm assuming this will follow suit for [Mod], [Guide], [Kernel], etc?

Espero que todos facem na mesma maneira. Veremos.

It's only thread title and there is no rules regarding but i'd still think date is most important.

EG: [05\03\10]Stylez Black v.5 WM6.1 21051 D3D 101MB Full\Light Manila 2.6 Theme [Final]

So to keep up with todays amount of releases would be

[05\03\10][ROM][WM6.1 21051] Stylez Black D3D 101MB Full\Light Manila 2.6 Theme

Completely agree, We REALLY need to put date of update at beginning of title, That is the most important part of title.

If date is at beginning of title it means all dates are in line and browsing forum is very easy to see updates at a glance rather then looking for position of date (if any).

A prime example of how efficient and organized this convention makes things is in the HD2 Android forum, I absolutely loved the organization of that forum and it was a HUGE disappointment when I first migrated to the SGS2 because of the complete lack of organization in this forum

I'm loving the work the devs do here but a little thing like date at beginning of titles makes a HUGE difference.
