    Hey. For how Brawl Vault has been so far, it's been pretty lackluster for a while due to no changes. Navigation can be annoying sometimes when you're trying to look for some stuff, like some Pit costumes instead of all that DBZ stuff. Uploading can be annoying too at times when it comes to previews. I brought my ideas up to Scout/Nezha via Discord, but then he told me to post it here. Here are what I think would help benefit the Vault:

    Vault Suggestions:

    -Adding a review system. Sometimes we may not know the quality of the mod or would like to hear other people’s opinions on it. Comments solely based on feedback should also be added. There would be rules obviously, mostly that the rules here would apply there and that the comments should only relate to the mod itself. This would definitely help people see if the stage/model import/moveset has any problems or is lacking in quality.

    -Give us the ability to remove our very own reports. Some people just make mistakes.

    -Give Mewtwo and Roy their own slots in the character section. P:M is the very reason that more than half of the Brawl community mods nowadays. This would really help.

    -Also give the P:M stages their own slots in the stage section as well.

    -Add tags and a filter system. When you enter the Pit section, you see so many DBZ mods and theres no way to filter all that out, and you just want your Pit costumes without having to surf in all that. Maybe you just wanna only see the mods from a certain year. Tags would help with the filter system, plus it would help with what you're looking for as well. Maybe I just want to look for Mario recolors instead of models or all those PSAs only.

    -Forbid screenshots taken by a camera. I don't like potato quality. You don't like potato quality. So get rid of it. Sometimes you can't see everything thanks to these people thinking its fine to upload previews just like that.

    -Get rid of the function for when you add in a image into the direct image link on a entry then it auto fills the thumbnail. It’s very annoying, if anything.

    -Speaking of uploading, add a preview cropper. I like my banners in high definition and hate having to constantly crop them by making them extremely low res to the point where it looks ugly. I'm sure other people feel the same way.

    -If permission is asked for on a mod, then the user who wants to edit it NEEDS to get permission.
    -Fix the SFX/video previews, PLEASE. There's some sfx mods i've been itching to try out, but I need to know how they sound like and there's absolutely no way to view them, and other people complain about this as much as I do.

    Even though I don't care much about the forums since it's dead, I'd like to suggest that we have the ability to make sure that they're not in the recycle bin.. i wanna get rid of every post i made from 2014-2017 forever and im sure some people would like to as well lol

    One more thing that would REALLY help is updating the Resources tab,

    To bounce off what Windhunter brought up, I'd like to propose adding the following to Resources:

    BrawlCrate. A branch of BrawlBox v0.78 (made by soopercool101) which fixes numerous bugs while adding various new features. It updates rather frequently depending on what sooper's working on. BrawlCrate also features a "Canary" system which lets users test new features before the next stable release is pushed.
    The current stable version is v0.24 (Hotfix 1): https://github.com/soopercool101/BrawlCrate/releases/tag/BrawlCrate_v0.24Hotfix1

    PSA Compressor. A branch of Project Smash Attacks (made by ICLPX) which fixes numerous bugs while adding various new features. Unlike BrawlCrate, PSA Compressor doesn't update very frequently.
    The current version is v0.35: https://ux.getuploader.com/iclpxnohokanko1/download/110

    Better PSA Compressor Config. Enhanced configuration files (lead by TheGag96) for PSA Compressor which fixes numerous param label errors and adds labels for newly discovered PSA commands.

    Item Editor. A branch of PSA Compressor (also by ICLPX) which allows the editing of Items and Kirby Hats.
    The current version is v0.12: https://ux.getuploader.com/iclpxnohokanko1/download/107

    PSA Remaker. A standalone program (also by ICLPX) used to add Sub Actions and Actions to a given moveset file (requires additional module editing to get them to work properly).
    The current version is v0.14: https://ux.getuploader.com/iclpxnohokanko1/download/111

    CodeWrite. A clone/branch of ASMWiiRd (made by TheGag96) which allows users experienced with assembly to make their own ASM codes.
    The current version is v1.0.6: https://github.com/TheGag96/CodeWrite/releases/tag/v1.0.6

    All of what KJP mentioned? Do it. Resources has NONE of this and most of this is mandatory nowadays in Brawl/P:M modding.
    Speaking of Resources, what would help is if there were some tutorials listed for specific programs or just in general, like how to use 3DS MAX/Blender for importing models, how to change specific materials, how to insert codes, how to modify SFX files, etc.

    One more thing though that should be added is the Custom Brawl Modding Discord. It's very well organized and there's a lot of stuff you can do over there. It has plenty of resources, lots of users that are active you can talk to about your mods (like feedback and helping and what not), etc. A link if anyone is interested: https://discord.gg/GbxJhbv

    This sounds like a lot, but these are all that I'd think would help benefit the Vault a lot.

    I hate to Necropost again, but this is becoming an issue. I get the Forums and the people on them aren't as active as they used to be, but could the Moderation and/or Admin team consider opening Moderation positions?

    Because I've noticed we've been getting troubling amounts of spam bots as of late.

    Back in April, I took a screenshot of the first page of the Introductions Board, and 65% of the posts are from bots. I'm not sure if things have changed since then.

    And just today, I was met with this when checking on Updated Topics.

    I'm aware we've always had to deal with bots, but I've noticed there being more lately. I feel this is due to a lack of active Moderator activity to keep these bots at bay.

    If Moderator roles aren't open, then could you consider updating your anti-bot filters? Because I'd rather see these forums inactive/dead rather than become infested by bots.

    I don't take requests.

    I've also seen a bot post in the tutorials section and get the tutorials pin LMFAO

    I do agree that there needs to be a way to deal with these bots. They've been so rampant for a while, and all I've been doing is reporting them.
